Will there be Change?

This question looms large over all Indians. The 2014 general elections is approaching. Sure it is still another year to go, but for us somehow this one feels so different. Over the last five years India and the world has changed a lot.The Congress ruled Government has some serious challenge to face. In spite of the contribution to national development they are facing the flak.

Achievements of the present government -
  1. All records for corruption have been broken. The total scams unearthed so far in the short span of four years is equivalent to the GDP of all of Africa combined.
  2. Successfully supporting, shielding corrupt people.
  3. Dividing the nation on communal lines.
  4. Ensuring that the rate of growth declines and the economy slows down.
  5. Accelerating inflation and promoting crimes.
  6. Not preventing a rape wave but successfully assault protesters.
  7. Somehow finding BJP and Hindutva responsible for all ills.
On the opposite side is the still unfortunately untainted(economically) Narendra Modi. Though Congress claims he is the Merchant of Death. Being criticized by the Congress means you are morally sound. Accepting the fact that Gujarat has outperformed all the states of India must have been a bitter pill to swallow. In any case, Modi is autocratic. Allies are hard to get. Who would try to get on the same bench with a person whom you can not buy with money? A person who goes against the way the system works in India?

Chances of Modi winning the election for NDA in 2014 is slim. But voting the Congress backed alliance into power again is going to be criminal. If the Congress is voted back - Indians should just shut up and accept corrupt people for the next five years.

My love affair with ThinkPads

I had never used a ThinkPad in my life till 2018. To be honest, I did not really see the benefit of using them anyway. Consumer series laptops (with plastic bodies) were the ones that I had always used before. Then I was introduced to the rugged looks of the T60 and T61 original IBM ThinkPad designs that came out way back in 2004 or so. And I loved it. Finding a ThinkPad that old did not appeal to me. I was impressed with the smaller compact X series laptops and decided to have either an X230 or an X220. Both of these are fairly similar and were launched about 8 years back. But they still sport good processors, plenty of memory upgradability, provision to add a maximum of three hard disks and a decent battery backup to boot. My reasons to get this were simpler -  They are rugged, I like to use my laptops well Memory is not soldered. There are plenty of options to upgrade. The keyboards are probably the best in the world. Why not get the latest ThinkPad? Again, simple.  They come with a

Reaching the peaks of my own stupidity or not

 I have never considered myself to be particularly intelligent. Though I have not had myself clinically diagnosed, anecdotal evidence and day to day activities amply demonstrate how stupid I am. Now wait. This does not mean I am indulging in self pity.  No. Far from it. I have had successes in life. I continue to do well in things that I love to do. I have no complaints there. It is just that I do feel my intelligence lacking. My success is, therefore, despite my stupidity and I take some pride in it. Of course defending the statement - 'I am stupid' is difficult. Especially without a test that ascertains the fact for certain. I will make a more nuanced statement as a result. I have less intelligence than the average person around me. That is a more defensible stance and there are tests (even other than IQ) to confirm it. Aptitude tests are a good example. I do horrible in them.  Okay, there is an exception - I got into IITB. But that was me trying for a third time. In any case
