muqaddar ka sikandar...

was watching swades with a friend last evening and he made a very very interesting comment:

there is a scene in which the muslim lady says, apne hi paani mein pighalna, barf ka muqaddar hota hai, samjha de us chokre ko....

my friend, Amit CC, retorted, paani ko barf banne ke liye use pehle freezer tak pahunchna padta hai.....

which in its own weird way made a lot of sense....


two more very interesting thoughts by Friedman of the bangalore/beijing, the world is flat fame:

1. no two countries having a McDonalds has ever fought a war with each other.
2. Dell computers assemble parts from 30 different countries, none of these 30 countries will ever go to war with each other.

shows how economic dependence makes a world of difference to how countries behave politically.

chalo will catch u all later....

Did u read the views of Mani Shakar Aiyar on the book? For once, I agree with his views that the world is still a big bowl with steep curves shutting them in for people living below the poverty line with no way out.

And on a kind of separate but related note, have you read the Matarese Circle by Ludlum?
