Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||
- abhang of Tukaram Wolhoba Ambile of Dehu

There's No Freedom Like That of a Child's Imagination

கடலுக்கு உண்டு கற்பனைக்கு இல்லை கட்டுப்பாடு

The Victor's Chaunt


Haka! Haka! Haka!


The D-brane Hobbits (Aseem, Suvrat, Tridib and yours truly) trounced the defending champions to win the annual TIFR Quiz on Saturday! So here I am gloating!


Actually this is a tribute to that great Carnatic Singer, Maharajapuram Santhanam (featured right), who clinched it for us. A clip of "Vathapi Ganapathim" was played out, and we had to answer who sang it. I had two options - Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, and Maharajapuram Santhanam. Naren of Psychedelia (who co-won the prize with us) answered the former, and was wrong. That left the field clear for us to give the right answer, and our team surged ahead. We maintained our lead till the end then.
All my most humble prostrations to the great musician, who can be heard here:-
