Office Alone!!!

This week seems to have been a week of many first's...1st blog, 1st time going for 33 hrs without food or water, 1st week of < 30 hrs sleep, 1st prolonged 'chatting through scrapping', 1st guitar 'n now my 1st "office alone" experience, partially atleast...

'N today was also the day on which I found a person in our department, with whom i could actually 'converse' with i.e. not just make some idle talk. Probably if I keep going on sundays more often, I'll find more such people...I know know...not much probability in that but 'Man can always hope can't he?' :) Anyways during the long conv, he said something like "I'm not a great man 'coz, a great man is one who will pursue his dream no matter what...even when he's told that his mother/father is in dead-bed he won't give up his dream!" which got me thinking...

who is a great man?? one who shirks away from his social responsibilities to pursue his dream? or one who gives up his dreams to fulfil his social duties?? Well it is easy to say that you try for both, but in cases where time's a factor...which should one choose?

That was in the afternoon 'n i'm still nowhere near an ans for it :(

Well after the person left(guess ard noon), I was left virtually all alone in the office, except for the security guards! 'n PF 'n IM for company. Totally enjoyed the feeling of being alone. Sometimes just being alone can give you so much joy...that i wonder is man (guess can't generalize it that read it as me in thr) really a social animal?!

With that this eventful week draws to a close 'n i'm gonna crash before 1...yipee!!!!

Spent some time reading all your blogs, and its really good to read them. You are really going great !!!

>>who is a great man??

Guess, you cant define a great man from the work he does, whether its his dream or an obligation. But rather from how strong he is in pursuing his heart, and how long he can stick to it without faultering ... I guess, thats the only common thing among the great men we know, be it from history, or our own families ... Just a thought :-)

Its junk if you tag some one as Great if he tries to achieve his dreams keeping aside his social commitments..
