A new Blog

Almost after two years, I started new blog. It is here.

I am a math and science geek. I like puzzle solving also. I believe it improves lateral thinking of various problem solving techniques. I also like to relate significance of mathematics to real life challenges. Most of the postings in the blog will be of kind having natural importance in day-to-day life. Some of the questions are colleted from various interviews. I encourage posting your answers as comments. I will not provide answers immediately to avoid biasing.

Welcome to my new blog.

Perception or Acceptance!

The following mail message I received from one of colleague… read…

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"?

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

“The world over -- 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me’?”.

And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?'

Happiness keeps you Sweet

Trials keep you Strong

Sorrow keeps you Human

Failure keeps you humble and

Success keeps you glowing, but…

Only Faith & Attitude keeps you going...
