i cant think of anything to criticize

What the fuck, so I will praise one of the most remarkable persons that I have ever met. Prof Ramkumar, Services marketing. The man is pure enthu, think of this-he takes 7.5 hrs of classes spanning 10 hrs and then lands up at the hostel football court. Snake charmer, chemist, traveller, academic, father, husband, crusader, teacher and probably many other things too. True, I really dont like his teaching style that much because for slow thinkers like me the class does not provide an opportunity to get to the bottom of any sort of thought process. But the enthusiasm of the guy is difficult to beat. I still cant figure out how a person can have such an amazing eye for details after a long gruelling day.

It would be interested if somebody decided to monitor our thought processes while we are in class. Are our thoughts influenced by what we hear? how much of our thought process actually changes over a period of time? does teaching have any sort of effect on what actions that you take or is the action determined by what you essentially believe in.

I have always thought that when the final question of decision making comes humans will alwayls decide on the basis of their core values. Since the core values are dependent on the environment ( as a function of upbringing), acceptable social positions actually become the dominant values in a populace. That is the reason that many of the fanatical movements have spread in the modern world. ( The debate still rages on, are we truly modern?).

Maybe our generation is in built with an enormous amount of cynicism ( I am a self-proclaimed cynic by the way) or we simply do not understand what the dynamics of the game are. The guy goes on about bringing passion into your life and defining your life to that one thing and here we are shaking our heads. You never need to agree, but each thought needs careful consideration. The hilarious part is that the same group of people when put under a similar situation will come up with the same ideas and think that they have done a remarkable job out of it. But maybe thats how its supposed to be.

As the co-creator of this blog sez : " you cant beat destiny mate"
I dont disagree. :)
