Exact vs Abstract

i will most prob buy a cd today, but am finding it difficult to choose between john denver and the corrs.. i know, the genres are different, i have listened to a couple of songs of both, so....will share the other point that is inspired by a 'spark' from 'india unbound'..unfortunately the author does not give a great deal of space to it in the book...it is to do with exact vs abstract....we pursue the study of exact (science) more than the study of abstract (art)...maybe because it is more difficult to make our mark in the latter, and only when we make a mark do we get some monetary returns on it....but in the former, we dont need to be extra special to make money...but i envy americans coz they somehow manage to pursue their dreams, i am speaking in generalities, but if i sing reasonably well here, i wouldnt try all my best to do that, it is subjective but i am speaking more or less for a majority of indians .... i think it is do with a lot of factors - culture, attitude, conditions.....i hope we can reach that stage one day, coz if our work is based on our passion, we will be successful and happy, right??thats it for today, heres
manuscrypts trivia
just a forward i got...TWO TOUGH QUESTIONS Question 1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion? Read the next question before looking at the answer for this one. Question 2: It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates. Candidate A - Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He's had two Mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day. Candidate B - He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening. Candidate C He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife. Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer. ANSWERS Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt. Candidate B is Winston Churchill. Candidate C is Adolph Hitler. And, by the way, the answer to the abortion question: If you said "YES", you just killed Beethoven. Pretty interesting isn't it? Makes a person think before judging someone.
