Law of Conservation of Money

I believe in the law of conservation of money. It states...

Money can neither be created, nor be destroyed. It can only be transformed from one form to another.
By money, I don't necessarily mean the monetary system prevalent in the economy, rather the power of buying. A simple thought in all the different scenarios of day to day life actually says that such a law exists (I might be thinking out of the box !!!). For instance, we get salary, we spend that in buying something. So, the money actually got converted into the form which we bought. I buy a burger, eat it. So, money got transformed to the pleasure of eating, then to the nutrients (if any) which the burger contained. I buy a T-Shirt, wear it. Money got converted to a T-Shirt which gives us pleasure and comfort. So, actually money was never destroyed or created in the process. It got converted from one form to another. So, the rule of thumb is, no one should run behind creating money. Because, money can never be created. We should try to convert it from one form to another. And conversion process always follow the rule of L.H.S=R.H.S. If, this rule is forcibly violated, its bound to face the consequences. Think about Abdul Karim Telgi. He violated the rule and at the end of the day he is doomed.

The Week

It's almost a week now. Life is almost back to normalcy, but yet to be normal. Less crowds in the roads, lesser vehicles. An unknown fear. They say its in the air, in the door handles, the the breathes of every other people. H1N1 took away the ambiance of the whole city for a complete week and the scar is still green. The fear is still reigning in the minds. A sudden outbreak of the epidemic stopped us all. A microscopic entity showed us our real helplessness. But, we fought and we will triumph. Some says its bio-terrorism, some says its the misdeed of those filthy experiments by developed nations... and other says its a order of the nature, a few other says.. its kalyug. Indeed an ill fated memory for all the puneites. But, life moves on. H1N1 Ki Maa Ki Aankh... yes... that's the spirit.

The Lady Cobra

Tan Dole Mera Man Dole - a classic oldies from the 1954 movie Nagin. Sung by Lata Mangeshkar and music directed by Hemant Kumar. The song has a snake charmer's tune in the back ground. The instrument is a Pungi or Bin. I got to hear a cover of the tune of this song a few months back in a local cafe. Just imagine a heavy, thrash version of this traditional tune, totally done by guitar. Decibel, an Indian Metal/Thrash Metal Band from New Delhi had performed this in the Launch Pad of Channel [V] in 2007. One of my friends recently pointed me to the links in the web for this splendid job, which I believe will confuse even a snake.
