la here I come!

well its been a long time till i have written, and a lot of events have taken place, which happen to be interesting.

i am now heading to los angeles (or at least planning to,haven't got my visa yet :D, to pursue my masters. whoopee!!! i would have gone to no other place than this.

half an hour ago i was watching an advertisement and that made me realize that i am going a place which breathes glitz and glamor. and there is a stark contrast to the place where i am heading to and the conditions back home.

all my life i have been in couped in one single place. i am going there with an ulterior motive. the world is a huge huge place! in it live lots of interesting people. people who have seen things different from what i have, people who come from a different background altogether. interacting with such people is an eye-piece compared to what the world has to offer. their recounting of a world that i have not seen, their culture that i have not experienced and who knows what!

i am excited by the very exchange of ideas owing to the gamut of environment all of us are in, which i believe should be done in healthy doses. this "expedition" will help me enrich my notion about the world. for any person who cares about his surroundings i think it is a must to have a peek at the world , it will be more than worth it!

i shall end this post by a line from the movie Crash:

It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.

till we meet again,

good bye world!
