my one liners

  • We do not owe procreation to a society, but we do owe parenting to our child.

  • The tongue is like Fire - when used with care and precision, it can potentially melt the hardest things and soften the hardest. But leave it loose and it burns down everything around it - friend and foe alike.

  • If a child's deadliest question is "Why?" , a parent's deadliest response is, "Why do you want to...."

  • Money is like Fire. When under control, it gives warmth, brings people together and is the center of most interactions, esp the after sundown variety. When out of control, it burns down everything in its way, is completely and ruthlessly destructive and (this is the worst part) - irreversible. you can only go down that ravine once.

  • Email has converted every private office in this country into a govt. office - they push files, we push emails.

  •  Tejpal getting off his job for 6 months as "adequate punishment" is the same as Tytler and Sajjan Kumar not being allowed to contest elections for a few years after 1984

One from me: I am only as busy as I want to be. If there is something I really want to do, I will find time to do it however busy I am.

Very valid thoughts, all of them.
