Read the first part of Reality in OPAR(author:Leonard Peikoff)

How very interesting :

The three basic axioms can be explained as follows:

There is: existence
something that: identity
I am aware of: consciousness

I thought this book was going to be difficult, it is fantastically easy!!!Here's to a more objectively integrated me in the near future!

Is it wrong to be sexy in India?

Everywhere I go, whether clad in a saree or a skirt, whether at a pooja, wedding or a party. I see men look at me, surreptitiously. I recently learned that this is supposedly because I give out a "sexy" vibe, which sadly intimidates most men!

What exactly qualifies me for this tag:
my deep throated laugh?
my unique way of animated conversation- listening and speaking at once?
my flirting? (well that's a no-brainer)
my intelligence?
my charm?
my innocence?

Well, it might be all of these,or none of these, or some of these qualities. I have realized that I dont care, I am sexy, and I am happy being that way. People who are intimidated can take a hike, for all I care :)

My current diet

After reading Rujuta Diwekar's book on eating right, I decided to give her version of a "diet"( if it can be callled that) a try. The results are to be seen, I have great hair, good energy, have developed excellent endurance, and most importantly have lost the kilos.

My daily routine includes:

Getting up at 7 -7.30 am
Eating an apple/drinking a glass of fruit juice
Breakfast at 8.45- 9 am- 1 plate Poha/1 chapati with bhaji
Snack at 11 am- a slice of cheese( regular amul)
Lunch at 1 pm- 2 chapathis with bhaji or 1 cup rice and curry/pulao
Snack at 4-4.30 pm - one handful of peanuts/ chana /vatana
dinner at 7-7.30 pm- one cup sprouted green gram with tomatoes, onions and masala.
sleep at 11.30 pm, max at 12 am

I intend to include curd/ soy milk as an additional snack in the evening from next month onwards.


Starting tomorrow morning I am going to be practicing Suryanamaskar, I hope to reach a healthy level of physical fitness. I also hope to look HOT :)

Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand

I am reading it while simultaneously re-reading Atlas Shrugged at work!! It's excellent- like eating mint and chocolate ice-cream at the same time :)


How wonderful would it be to have a man who understood me, didn't care about what the world thought of me, and in general was TDH?!!

The qualities I am looking for:
1. Strong and tall
2. self made
3. ambitious
4. rational
5. sarcastic /witty
6. knowledgeable
7. romantic
8. sexy
9. visionary
10. creative

He can be an artist, a businessman, an engineer- basically anything, the profession doesnt matter, what matters is what he does with it. Does he love his job? Is he strongly dedicated to achievement? If the answer is yes, then that's my man!

I am sure such men exist on earth, and I hope to meet my very own man someday soon :)
