Excellent and somewhat humorous article

That is definitely worth a read (click the “Related Article” link at the end of this post to know what I mean)! A warning to all those wannabe terrorists :-)

On an unrelated note, the title of that page reminds me, as it should, of “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” by James Joyce. That’s a bit weird because though I’ve heard the title of that story many times, especially during my college days, I’ve never been able to get down to reading it. Blame it on Joyce’s style, or maybe my limited intelligence / aesthetics, but I never could read those deader-than-fish-out-of-water stream-of-consciousness writers.

What’s in a name – II

What’s in a name? Plenty, it turns out. Now, that’s something I’d never even suspected. I mean, while I knew that a name like Jestin Azhagusundaram would not really sweeten the tongue that utters it, I never realised that it would make him die a few years sooner! Poor chap, his fate was decided right after he was born and he had no way to stop it.
