If by Rudyard Kipling

All copyrights to whoever holds them.


If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Summer holidays

Guilty Pleasures:

1.Watching Sakhi with breakfast
2.Watching Satya ,sipping Black label; missing a friend on a rainy day


To come:
Study interest rate models

PS: Studying is only fun when it is turned in to the discovery of ideas rather than rote knowledge.For me, the best teachers are those that allow a sense of discovery to be the theme of their teaching.

Why I find Indian languages more appealing ?
There is much more nuance in them.

He was a quiet boy.Thats how he always remembered even after a devade and half.The dialogue in his head kept him busy, lost in his world of questions , looking at the world like a fish in a bowl, trying to make sense of it.
It was a wonderful day out, 4 in the evening on a summer day in Bangalore.He was 7 and standing at the balcony railing of the apartment on the first floor, looking at the scene on the road in front of the apartment building,where he lived with his parents and 3 year old sister.His mother stood between them.

"Why can't I go and play with them, like they are?"he asked his mother
"Why don't I have friends?"

They had only recently moved to Bangalore and the boy had not yet made any friends.At 7 there isn't much more a child would want than someone to play with, someone to conspire with,confide in,wonder with,grow up with.I wonder if that ever changes.But this boy it was particularly a sharp desire to be part of that bantering group playing badminton on the road.

He looked at his mom and said, "Why can't I play with them?"

"Well, thats not going to happen standing here"

Anticipation

As cliched as this may be , I find it applies broadly to everything in my life

"Do not count your chickens before they hatch"

So I remind myself, that all I can do is to be prepared for as many outcomes as possible. But life has this way of overturning mine and in general our best laid plans.
Just have to deal with them as they come along.
