drifting in a sea of humans

i stopped watching tv when i was a kid. i stopped reading the news a few years ago too. at first, i made up for it by reading news online. now i just keep my eyes and ears open when i'm around my friends to know what's happening outside.

what interests me instead is thoughts of individuals. people i know. people i don't. unexceptional human beings. in most cases, through blogs - but i guess that's only because i'm too lazy to go out and meet new people in person, and getting people to talk about themselves probably feels unsettling to the talker.

it's very weird. i somehow don't care about the world as a whole any more. it's only the what's in the minds of people in it that i find interesting.

i'd rather look at a single flower in a meadow than run through it and watch all of it blur past. listen to someone's dreams instead of what's happening in the stock market. listen to a teenager bitching about her friends rather than the latest gizmo on the news.

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘kris blog’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
