In her shoes

nice poem...
The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

---Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

Movie is must watch...

Tipping point

These days I am reading Tipping point from Malcolm Gladwell. Book is very good. I previously read blink from same author. I recommend to read both of books. first one give proper analysis about the marketing fundas of why something becomes suddenly hit.
while in the "blink", author describes how some expert can tell about a authenticity of some thing,in a blink, which normal people can't tell. what it goes into their mind before they make such a decisions..
its when I used to heavily active in sports ..just seeing the some new guys style of running or
holding stick or kicking a football a first moment, I can predict whether this guy will play good or all cases all those initial hunches were right..
I can't clearly remember about the I read it not quite long back..but now a days I am suffering from major memory disorder..which makes me forget things very quickly..even I can't remember things which I said few minutes back or things which I have done with full efforts with my project mate..otherwise I could have started this new book blogging with blick only..

as I will make progress on this book I plan to write some interesting concepts out of that book here....hope those people don't file a case on me..
