"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."

In his wonderful book targetted primarily at a corporate audience, 'Surfing the Intellect: Building Intellectual Capital for a Knowledge Economy', Dilip Mukerjea writes his beautiful prologue as follows:

"Combinations are spark plugs for creative combustion. An item by itself is a unilateral entity - filled with potential, but static, until it meets another. Then whoosh! Creativity!

All of us harbour forces within us. Within the vast ocean of consciousness, we have it in us to set loose a groundswell that can explode into mighty waves of unstoppable magnitude.

When we surf along these waves of human dynamism, our destination becomes inevitable. Often unplanned, serendipitiously, we reach the shores of wonder. Such terrains, alive with infinite waves of potential, define the human intellect.

Surfing the Intellect is a metaphor with connections and combinations at multiple levels, often synchronous in their significance.

May you surf with joy. May the rhythm of your spirit create a song in your heart. May you never be the same!"

The Creative Spirit

Be not a puny candle with flame so ready to be extinguished by the slightest adversity.
Instead, be a raging bonfire; burn bright, and dare the world to eclipse your glory.
Enjoy the simple rapture of being alive.
