Ramblings and Looping!

We had an interesting couple of days with a discounted lunch and a movie... The movie  Looper is in the sci-fi genre... It's about time travel and the ending, hints at a person knowing the future sequence of events and correcting the sequence in the present! A more simplified version would be a question everyone would have thought of at some point or the other.... can destiny be altered based on what you do or is what you do just taking you on an already established course? Keep pondering...

I just Googled for the movie and you have articles on explanations, paradoxes and even a visual timeline explaining the flow of events in each timeframe!

My one  friend didn't like the movie while another did; but all of us are grateful to the friend who saved us from the extra service charge!

I am amazed at our Chennai drivers; a person on a bike with a wife and kid takes a  u-turn in a forbidden junction putting his  family at risk; it shudders sometimes to think how they are willing to risk their loved ones to save a few minutes and a little fuel. I guess we never treasure what we have.

My ramblings from my mobile

I won't write much since this is my first mobile post and some reviews of Google's mobile app are a little worrying... they say your blog will disappear!

It's been an interesting 2 weeks with a lot of experimenting on my mobile... the GPS came in handy with downloaded maps... we spent about 30 minutes to find a Saravana bhavan for lunch near sangam  cinemas; unfortunately the offline map didn't have this branch; but roaming admins in areas of Chennai that we'd never seen was fun.

I also tried my hand at android programming; the developer's life is made a lot easy with the development software available... it's satisfying to write a program and see it execute on the mobile phone.

Will be back with the travelogue soon... was caught up in completing a story...
