"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip, who is techno-savvy, is a strong advocate of hand-crafting Mind Maps, as he sincerely believes that the hand is the cutting edge of the mind.

Here's just a selection of his hand-crafted Mind Maps.

I like to leave this wonderful quote as food for thought while you ponder over Dilip's hand-crafted Mind Maps:

"I'm struck by the insidious, computer-driven tendency to take things out of the domain of muscular activity & put them into the domain of mental activity. The transfer is not paying off. Sure, muscles are unreliable, but they represent several million years of accumulated finesse."

~ Brian Eno, musician & composer [Source: Wired, January 1999];
