Vikram's "Muse"

“And this one thing is what gives the confidence, however out of place this confidence might seem, to be absolutely unworried about the permanence of this bond. How can you somehow lose your reflection?” - Vikram

The Disappearing Penny

I am back in India for a short while – and while waiting for the power to come back on so I can get some more work done I decided to clean up my personal email. And as always, I found another testament to my claim that we were all significantly cleverer while still studying at Tech. Here is an email conversation on the mailing list for my house:

Someone wrote:

Why is it necessary to put your two cents in, but it’s only a penny for
your thoughts? Where does that extra penny go?

And someone replied:

It is better to give than to receive. You’re paying two cents to
contribute your own thoughts, but only offering 1 to receive them. The
extra penny goes for the better quality.

Ah.. those good old days 🙂
