The Better India


written by Dhimant Parekh on Wednesday, October 26, 2005

Socrates and Plato are in the lobby of the office, waiting to go to the car park. Plato: "It is raining." Socrates: "To use weather in order to initiate a conversation is clich├ęd." Plato: "Huh? No, it is indeed raining. " Socrates opens his umbrella and starts walking towards the car park. Plato runs after him, getting partially drenched. Socrates (walking briskly with the umbrella): "Rain is just one of the million states of the atmosphere. " Plato (trying to catch up): "Right." Socrates: "Man is just one of the million states of life." Plato: "Take a left now." Socrates looks at Plato. Plato: "Er...What a coincidence that one of the million states of atmosphere meets one of the million states of life!" Socrates: "Coincidence is just one of the million states of probability." Plato: "Greek again! Brilliant! " They get into the car and subsequently join the traffic jam on the road. PS: Dhi Only One does not blame last evening's showers for this makes-no-sense post.

Btw, this was not a mind boggling post - it was a beautiful juxtaposition of the concepts of math, philosophy and environment science.

Jai ho!
