a page from the past...

clean, clean, clean
tear, tear, tear
throw, throw, throw
was yesterday's agenda.

found a little notebook from the past.
a page from the past when I was a trainee in an advertising agency.
when I scoured huge advertising reference books in my hunger for creative knowledge.
scribbled lines from books for devouring later.
"Don't judge me because I get my hands greasy or wear jeans or work on a certain payroll.
Unless you have the guts to talk to me, you won't ever have a chance to find out what I have to offer.
The reality is we are all different. We are male, female, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, tall, short, single, married, smokers, non-smokers, young, old and infinite list of characteristics, that make us unique.
The common denominator of being human is we all share the experience of being different."


I don't know from which ad campaign or editorial this was taken but this just brought back some beautiful nostalgic memories:-)

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Rang: The Colours of Life.’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

My god archana, I used to do the same thing!!!! I had these diaries where I would write reams of my own stuff, my dreams, aspirations, determinations and it also had a LOT of quotes that inspired me from books, ads, articles you name it. And yes, we are all a lot more similar than we assume :)
