About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see how the World looks like From the Top

ABOUT ME

well .. Personal description is something i like and hate at the same time..
Hate.. because even though I pursue sporadic sessions of retrospection and self assessment, I still feel I know little about this myself.
Like .. because.. sometimes.. when i get back to these descriptions after a certain amount of time.. i find them outdated and sometimes not-even-true-anymore. the literati call it growth and development, I just feel its a by product of experience.

So here i am . seeking and Cherishing experiences.

Experiences Particularly realting to Poetry, Philosophy, Computer Science, Metaphysics, psychology,
photography, sports (you name it), cultures and happiness in general.

well words are a poor match for emotions, views and beliefs i think.. so no more shall I try.. Although I do love meeting people .. so please don't be surprised if i pop u a random message its probably because i found your profile interesting.

Cheers to life and to everything that promotes it, including healthy communication.

PHILOSOPHY

1) everything happens for a reason .. but as humans we cannot understand the reason behind everything so sometimes we should stop worrying and just be happy .. with reason or without it !

2) Life is too small relative to the world.

theres a whole lotta things i have done that can be termed as amazing but of all i think the best thing would be once .. when i was in Etretat i almost ran the distance from Etretat to Le havre on Foot ... that too pretty quickly as i had a bus waiting for me .. it was fun.. running through the greens and the wilds :)
