Everything About Everything

Posted on January 27, 2009. Filed under: Personal, Thoughts | Tags: , |

Boredom is the starting point of creativity. And stupidity. Sitting in my room on a lazy afternoon with absolutely nothing to do, I couldn’t help but think about ancient scriptures, mythical stories and the sort. A sudden realization that there are indeed lots of sources to learn about everything there is to learn. Here are a few:

1. Bhagavad Gita – The holy scripture of the Hindus. Its basically the conversation between Krishna, the mainfestation of God, and Arjuna, his disciple. Timeless as it is, it still holds relevant to the modern way of life.

2. Thirukural – A collection of 1330 couplets, categorized into 133 sections, with 10 verses each. Written by the Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar before the arrival of Christ, it is widely regarded as a complete reference covering almost all aspects of human life.

3. Calvin and Hobbes – Yes, I’m not kidding. Whoever said knowledge shouldn’t be fun? I won’t pretend to be a HUGE fan of Calvin and Hobbes, but I’ve read quite a few of their priceless adventures, and truly believe it might just have everything there is to know about everything.

And if you want to read the entire collection, head over to this site
