Day 23

"Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being. Without interrelation with society he cannot realize its oneness with the universe or suppress his egotism."
- Mohandas K. Gandhi

Umm, he is also correct. This to some may seem the opposite of the previous quote, but it doesnt necessarily have to be. I think there has to be a balance, if time requires, one should be able to do everything on their own and for the rest interdependence is what will help suppress our egos like Gandhi said.

Here are old pictures I found of this plate I had decorated for my room mate. It was for Diwali last year I think.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
-Lazarus Long

A quote from Time Enough For Love. Written by Robert Heinlein. This quote has tempted me to read the book. At least one other person believes/believed in almost the same thing as I do.

Day 22


Yes, Diwali is not that great in Philly.
no painted diyas (had to work with a pumpkin), no rangolis, no mithai, no family, no pretty clothes, no off from school, no fire works, no getting money from relatives
but, the only thing that's there is the inner light.
Light of knowledge, and that's all that matters.

Day 21

So, I finally found the Original Van Gogh that I had reproduced in 2004. Now I can clearly see how it is NOT a reproduction.

Still Life with Oleander by Van Gogh 1888
