Just a nice friendly message

....and thus I drift out of oblivion.

I think I might've just lost a lab this time around, but it seems so utterly inconsequential compared to the millons who've just lost their sole purposes in life.

yeah,the tsunami-induced melancholy just filled me with this crazed emptiness.I really mean it when I make such ironic references.
To say this catastrophe has affected all of us in some small way would be to understate, but the whole thing got me thinking...thinking about how trivial screwing up a test I was to write the next day would be when its likened to this kind of a tragedy thats disastrous enough to unite the world in the largest relief-operation ever. Now that is some perspective.
Sometimes, perspective can be lost in the spirit of the chase and hence I went ahead and did screw up my exam. But like I said, I find myself not giving a flying chilli bean fart!

I guess it is but natural...especially when you engage your mind in such profound thought as relief measures for the distraught.
We're talking about lives here, lives that've depended on the uninterrupted functioning of natural systems, lives that've influenced many an artistic,scientific and humanistic endeavour, lives..that've been taken.

Waves will recede..but will leave behind the dead and the devastated. But before the grief and mourning melts off, and before we all go back to our depressingly atomized lifestyles, something has to be figured out so that the inevitable crave for reaching out to the victims is quelled. I know I've conveniently been passive both in tense as well as nature right now, but I thought I'll just put this across so that we still think of disasters as aberrations and do something about it.

If you think you'd rather be brutally apathetic to all of this, go burn your shirt pocket that houses your spectacles to make it seem like you have a heart. If not, take a moment and light a candle.

Remember, its not the tragedies that kill us...its the messes.
