Anything that you say can and will be used against you in a situation when and where you would least expect it. Doesn't matter if you were young and drunk or it was supposed to be a joke, and the Web neither forget not forgive :D
So do not put it on your blog if you can mail, do not mail if you can write on a paper, do not write if you can speak, do not speak if you can whisper, do not whisper if you can nod and do not nod if you can wink.

This was written a long time back; somehow I forgot to hit the Publish button
It's been some time since we were separated; and I have not been able to keep you out of my thoughts for a single day. All memories of our happier time together keep returning and make me feel so incomplete and miserable (I never thought that I would use this word to describe my state) without you.
Now I realize why it's been said that as two entities merge to become an inseparable unity, is that when pray, you see true love.
What was it if not the clichéd-yet-true Love-At-First-Sight? I was simply mesmerized with your lustrous dusky shade, the pair of bright twinkling eyes, flawless toned figure and the gray matter to match for; who wouldn't have fallen for you?
One may wonder what did you see in me but I know you went for my money ;)
I have come to realize how much dependent I have become on you, and it does not do my state of helplessness any good whenever I realize that it'll be sometime before everything will be what they were.
I'm being reminded of every moment that we spent together and how each of them got us closer than before.
— Of our first date when you suddenly went so famished as if you have not seen food for thousand years and refused to move an inch until you get some.
— Of our long walks together, late in the night, hands in hands, till we're the only couple in the miles that have gone past and the miles that are yet to come.
— Of the first time when I touched you and you responded with the soft roar in the true characteristics of a lioness in love.
— Of the times when I held you in tight embrace, my legs intertwined with your waist, my hands pinning down yours, and of the scorching heat, the erotic noise, and the rhythmic motion.
— Of the envy whenever I was flirting with some other girl right behind your back :D.
And how can I forget when your folks at Bajaj created one of the biggest identity crisis since "Boys Don't Cry" when some overburdened sleepy idiot changed your portfolio title "Definitely for a Male"; dropping a preposition and an article ;)

When they came for the communists,
I remained silent;
For I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
For I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
For I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
For I wasn't a Jew.
When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.

"There is never time to do it right, but always time to do it over"
I was passed this quote yesterday by a friend, and I see all my software engineer friends shouting "Aye!" :-)
I looked back and realized that most of the time it happens because someone wanted to "make contribution" which was not only unnecessary but also detrimental. Something on the line of "...had to pitch in/stand up and ensure that We ('I') delivered the stuff on time as promised".
But these people tend to forget that "... you can't rush good cooking, you can't rush babies out, and you can't rush software development".

By the very design of evolution, the current generation processor is more advanced, more intelligent than all of its predecessors.
But the ability to foresee the next set of instructions waiting in the pipeline to be executed comes only after crunching a few zillions of numbers.
