What does life teach you?

Posted in Uncategorized on March 7, 2010 by pensivelawyer

Does it teach you never to take this security blanket for granted? Does it teach you to respect what you have now for if its gone, you may live to regret your loss?

Or does it teach you to take life as a game….to be played with no regrets….as we do a simple game of monopoly?

Each of the above situations have their own respective pro’s and con’s. Its up to us to choose an available option and then, face the consequences. I guess the difference is the smile with which you take the decision and the consequences that arise therefrom.

Life is only as serious as you want it to be…. ūüôā

“Then life took a turn, we all had to learn,
and we can’t go back again.”

— Just for you by Lionel Richie


Radio Conversation

Radio Conversation: This is supposed to be the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.

 РPlease change your direction 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

– Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to South to avoid a collision.

– This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

– No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.


– This is a lighthouse. Your call.

Tuesday smiley :)

Life was much more simpler when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits!

Judgment day

It always comes. You cannot escape it. The only question is, will it take you with it?

Some powerful words i came across over dinner tonight.

Make no judgments where you have no compassion” – Anne McCaffrey

Thats what you write when you don’t know what you want to ramble about.

Flew into Delhi earlier this morning and the usual feeling of pensive-ness hit me whilst on flight. I usually counter that by reading my papers and gettin ready for arguments or even newspapers and mags but sometimes, just sometimes, its ok to let it soak in and enjoy the somberness. Today i did that.

Flying home from a¬†long day at work¬†can be an enjoyable experience. Phones and Blackberry switched off…..plane cabin dark after a quick dinner……and the joy of flying into Mumbai…..the lights as one sees the city approach.

All in all, a wondeful moment that never misses to bring joy!

I’ll see you soon Mumbai.

Its funny when you actually read through the stuff you have written over time and wonder how and why you ever would have written that in the first place!

Whats not funny is when you realize that time is truly a healer.

The lesson learnt: Enjoy your now. Your ability to process your ‘now‘ will ensure that tomorrow brings you smiles.

I miss writing

Posted in Uncategorized on February 16, 2010 by pensivelawyer

Of course i do…its just that, with such a hectic life, the few minutes a day that i usually¬†found myself before a computer with the ability to express myself have gone for a toss. Add to that i started writing a lot of stuff for the legal journals etc.

The result: I miss writing….i miss expression….i miss a lot of things…..but i am here and now is the moment that i need to get by…..and get by i will….

Dont you just love the sweet breeze we have?
