There is no free lunch in this world !!!

A few professors in the Electrical Engineering department, where I study, use this phrase pretty often . I never gave it much thought until recently . It is a very simple statement and the meaning is pretty obvious. ' There is no free lunch in this world ' ... everything is give and take . You know eventually i believe as far as luck goes it pretty much evens out .. statistically speaking - I believe fate just shuffles the same deck of cards before handing them out to every person . Where you reach in life , will and should then be your work. Dont just sit on your fat bottom ... Move it and go to work !!!

Th problem with most of us ( meaning us lazy people ) is that we think too much . We think , get tired and sleep . But the fact remains that all that thinking and sleeping, especially in the most valuable period of your life ,isnt going to get you anywhere. Just seeing the way is not the answer.. walking it is the most important thing.

I did not intend this to be a preaching session , but i just wanted to tell these things to myself to get back to work ... yawn sigh sigh ....

Hehe. That was a hilarious story you left at my blog :p

I realized the 2 errors I made:

1. I know a Harish Suryanarayan. That's minus an 'a' from your last name.

2. He's doing Mechanical Engg. as opposed to Electrical.

He's just entered fourth year. You might even know him!

I see that you didn't argue the heart-throb part of my comment ;)
