Swimming

Swimmin for
freedom

The water
cold

You put
your feet

Wanna stay
away

Run back
to your
cocoon

You wonder
a while

And then
try again

This time
you jump

Your body
cuttin

In the
water

Makin a
splash

Completin your
journey

You feel
the heat

Fear of
water no
more

Swimmin for
freedom

P.S: To Michael Phelps

What are Paintings?

April 27, 2012

What are Paintings?

This is a simple view into paintings for any amateur, who is trying his hand at them, either for fun or work. Paintings provide a view to People, their culture, World, Universe through ages. It also extends man’s imagination to future.

Painters, like Philosophers etch out life and their experience on canvas. Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci are some of the artist which portray Europe during the reforms it went through in the 16th-18th century. Most of the greatest paintings of man have come during his struggle against life (Nature, Fellow human beings, Other living beings)

At a more simple level, each painting of an artist is a thought to life. A Artist typically paints about 100 paintings throughout his life and a country during its peak timings gives rise to a bunch of artist simultaneously. To find out about a country or continent during a century, it might be a good idea to look at the paintings of some of the greatest artist of that time.

P.S: Most of the greatest artist have come from Europe not to forget early Indian & Chinese civilizations which brought out different forms of art (Pottery, Construction: Homes)

The Three Foundations of Mankind: Philosophy, Art & Science

December 28, 2011

The Three Foundations of Mankind: Philosophy, Art & Science

The Three foundations of mankind (Philosophy, Art & Science) have a common thread from man, explained below :

The Allure of Philosophy

Simple Thoughts about anything and everything around. The wonder of a man is put into pen and paper

Expressions are applied to form junctions which expresses the thought into words

The words are applied to various situations of oneself and the environment. They are then further refined. The bad ones are tossed out of the window.

If this works, then this is what is called as philosophy (Most of the philosophers are a discarded lot) or it is discarded as an imagination of a crazy thinker.

And then wonderful applications follow: Art, Science, …

This is Philosophy! Simplified!

World’s Greatest Philosophers: Socrates, Plato, Spinoza, Freud, Voltaire, Kant

The Allure of Art

Philosophical or Art Thought about anything and everything around. The wonder of a man is put into pen and paper

Visual expressions are applied to form junctions which expresses the thought into colours

The visual expressions are applied to various situations of oneself and the environment. They are then further refined. The bad ones are tossed out of the window.

If this works, then this is what is called as art (For some it might take centuries: Van Gogh) or it is discarded as an imagination of a crazy artist.

And then wonderful applications follow: Architecture, Entertainment, …

This is Art! Simplified!

World’s Greatest Artist: Van Gogh, Piccasso, Michaelangelo, Shakespeare, Leo Tolstoy

The Allure of Science

Philosophical or Art Thought about anything and everything around. The wonder of a man is put into pen and paper

Mathematical expressions are applied to form junctions which expresses the thought into numbers

The mathematical expressions are applied to various situations around and checked if it works. They are then further refined.

If this works, then this is what is called a scientific theory or it is discarded as an imagination of crazy scientist.

And then wonderful applications follow: Technology, Wealth, Cars, Computers, Food…

This is Science! Simplified!

World’s Greatest Scientist: Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Heisenberg, Planck, Feynman

Here is the deal

Ganoos is celebrating his sucess almost on the top of the mountain, Gopal is pissed off as he cannot see Holand like scenery around at Matheran,
Kiran is hungry and urging others to climb fast so that we can eat and Deepak just loves the base!

And the mountain is becoming the “Leaning Tower of Pisa” moving backward due to the onslaught of “The Friends” crying “Eh, who are these mavericks, help!”

P.S: Dedicated to My Friends

Bollywood (An Outsiders View)

November 24, 2011

Bollywood (An Outsiders View)

India is a conservative country with Mumbai its financial capital. It is tied in old customs, traditions and hardly has the infrastructure for lateral innovation. The Indian Society limits the individual growth due to its emphasis on the Family Based Society. So it is impossible for any industry to innovate. However two industries outshine even in these impossible circumstances: Bollywood and The Ad Industry.

The Bollywood Industry which takes in all the mavericks and makes them stars. In the City of Dreams, Mumbai (aka Bombay). Most of all it gives them a chance to express their personalities & maintain their individualities at the same time. If you want to do creative work and maintain your self-respect in the East (India), Bollywood is THE place. Off course the ride might be a bit bumpy. Come home to the stars.

Here are some of its prolific personalities of Bollywood since its inception to now:

Guru Dutt: Pyaasa
Dev Anand: Jewel Thief
Raj Kapoor: Aawara
Sunil Dutt: Mother India
Rajesh Khanna: Anand
Amitabh Bachchan: Sholay
ShahRukh Khan: Swades
Tangential: Satyajit Ray

The other industries (IT, Pharma and so on)  have to learn & apply from these industries to starve off global competition. There is simply no way out.

The Greatness of a Country

May 5, 2011

The Greatness of a Country

How would one measure the greatness of the country? Is it by the natural resources it possesses? It is only by luck which one country possesses abundant natural resources and the other country is devoid of it. It is by its people, talent and innovation in the fields of philosophy, art, science, business and sports one can define the greatness of a country. Below we explore each of these areas and which of the areas in the world excel in it.

Philosophy

All the World’s philosophy came out from Greece (Socrates, Plato), India (Buddha) and China (Confucius) in the Pre-Dark Ages. Their philosophy still echoes throughout the World. In the Post Dark Ages, it was EuropeVoltaire from France, Immanuel Kant from Germany and many more Europeans all the way.

Reference
Dark Ages

Art

In Pre-Dark Ages – Greece, India & China excelled in art. Handicraft, pottery, sculptures all rose from these magnificent civilizations in abundance. I am still surprised how much quality these folks spun out. And why after so much advancement in our technology, there is wholeness and beauty lacking in what we produce today.

Post-Dark Ages – Europe , America took the lead in establishing themselves as leaders in art (Van Gogh). From paintings, music to construction of cars & structures, they brought wonders in each of these art. They still rule the field of art.

Sports

Post-Dark Ages again Europe and America took lead in innovation in sports. From swimming (Michael Phelps), Tennis (Pete Sampras), Basketball (Michael Jordan) to Formula 1 (Michael Schumacher), all of these sports were improved on and leaders came out of them from these countries. It is said if you want to find out what a person is made up of, watch him play for an hour. Indeed, you can find out about the greatness of the country from its sportsmen.

Science

Modern Science was developed by Europe (James Watt, Issac Newton, Albert Einstein) and implemented into technology by America (Feynman, Alan Turing). Europe & America are still the undisputed leaders in the field of science. Russia based its whole economy on science in the 19th century. The early science foundations were all laid out in Greece , the Islamic World  and India .

List of Muslim Scientist
List of Indian Scientist

Business

Business evolved from Barter trade to the present specialized trade which exist today. Indians and Chinese  goods spread throughout the world in the pre-dark ages. America (Apple, HP) and Europe (BMW, Vodafone) again are the undisputed kings in the area of business based on science in the post dark ages.

As of now, Europe and America are the undisputed kings in art, culture and science. However the future looks like heading into another Dark Age until unless nations rapidly overhaul themselves (which again is unlikely as with revolution comes a lot of pain)
