What does being 22 reminds me?

  1. It reminds me that I have only two more years to realize my dreams.
  2. It reminds me that I still haven't even taken the first step towards my dreams.
  3. It reminds me that I am dying ( ok! ok!, getting old :( ).
  4. It reminds me that I am still as lazy as I was. I should have posted this three days ago.
  5. It reminds me that i am still jobless.
  6. It reminds me to update this blog.
  7. It reminds me that of all my friends only this guy actually uses the phone instead of orkut and he talks too.

Is being too good, good?

I have always wondered how much good is good?

Lets assume that I start a software company today. Lets assume that it goes on become the biggest company in the world in about a year(ok! its too much but lets assume..). Lets also assume that Bill Gates overwhelmed by my company's success writes microsoft to me and also all of his fortunes. Now I would probably be the richest man in the world. I now start pursing my other dream and go on to become a music director. I don't just become another music director but really a great one beating IR, ARR...(hey! hey! just assume..) in a year. Now the top 10 richest people in the world are overwhelmed by music and they also write their fortunes to me. I am now the richest man beyond anyones wildest imagination. I have all the money and time( its been only two years) in the world. So what do I do now? I start by composing for free and I still deliver excellent compositions. I don't just stop there. Next I start offering all the products that my company does for free( my company does all possible software products in the world). What will happen now? Obviously all IT companies in the world will start to close down. Recording companies will close down. Other music directors wont be needed anymore.

If its music then its only by me.
If its software then its only by me.
and its free!!!.

I was just trying to do a service to society here. I never intended to become a monopoly. Will I now be considered evil for trying to be too good?

You think its funny? impossible?
Well, What I have said is highly exaggerated but something like this is not impossible. Best example would be Google and A.R.Rahman.

Google has reached( or is reaching) a point close to being a monopoly on the world wide web. Anyone who uses the www has to somehow use google. It has taken over the blogospher, mail, social networking.... I expect more to come in the future. The biggest source of revenue on the www is probably only through advertisers and its only a matter of time before it becomes

If its advertising, its only on Google.

A.R.Rahman's success as a music director is phenomenal. Just look at the fans in orkut or yahoo groups. Most people I have seen don't like an album just because its not by ARR. If you don't compose like ARR they don't like you and if you do compose like him they say you are copying him. How many of you heard people say " Hey you need to listen at least 4 to 5 times before you start liking a song by ARR"?. Its very much true. But its also true for many others.
So as long as ARR is there it will be...

If its music, it has to be by A.R.Rahman.
...well, at least in India.

PS: I have completed one year of blogging!!.. but with just around 30 posts and a handful of comments I don't feel like celebrating :( .
