Who can forget the importance of a towel after reading Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy. A true galactic traveler has to carry a towel which is very important for his survival. A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have... You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta…wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat…wrap it around your head to ward off noxious fumes. Any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

As you can see, people of Karanataka especially in Mandya belt are true inter galactic travelers. They invariably carry their towel over their shoulders. Recently I had been to a nearby village and was curious to see so many intergalactic travelers around. They are fondly referred to as Hegal mele towel alias HMT's (Babel fish translation : Towel on shoulders). This HMT's might be something very similar to the mice in disguise who were actually using humans as laboratory creatures. Who knows ? ;)

Being perfectionist is sin

I feel my best character is my worst enemy. I somehow do not have the ability to tolerate imperfections. As a result I do not study if I feel that I'm unable to complete 100% of the syllabus,Replace my wrist watch glass if there is minor scratch and so on. Thou I'm not perfect, my pursuit to perfection has really driven me crazy. At the end of the day nothing gets done. Sometimes I'm stressed to a point wherein I can barely function. Hence from today onwards I've decided to tolerate 10 - 15% of imperfection in things that I come across. This reminds me of deliberate mistakes that were allowed to be purposefully made on temple carvings, worrying to get 100% of the things right is not worth the effort.
