Paradoxes -- The Ultimate Ironies Of My Life

1. I hate to chase cash, but I can't take my eyes off a Cheverlot Optra.

2. I hate to compare myself with others, but I thrive in a competitive world.

3. I can't help but admire the concepts of Leninism and Marxism, but I'm convinced that market rules.

4. I hate leaving my home @Calicut, but I can't help it.

5. I love music , but I'm one of the worst bathroom singers and best back-bench singer.

6. I'm reluctant to give up the comforts of this software life, but the joy of bunking classes, copying assignments and sleeping in backbench morethan anything else attracts me towards college life again..

7. I hate politicians like Arjun @#$% Singh, but I love politics.

8. I'm all for idealism, but I'm very much convinced that its not pragmatic.

9. I love India very much, but the splendour of Eurpoe beckons me for a visit.

10. I convince myself repeatedly that past is past, but my inner-self brings back those memories again and again.

11. I'm convinced that path towards God is by helping others, but the suave feeling of Sabarimala trip calls me to go there again.

12. One day I want to leave all this and work in some good NGO...but not sure as on when that day will come.

Sabarimala.. I remember our neighbour going to sabarimala waering the black mundu and all the ceremony before he left.. and me crying and telling my grandmother I want to go too.. Then she had to tell me, why I can't go.. another 20 years more and I will visit sabarimala..
