ഡോക്ടര്‍ ഗ്സ്പാര്‍ ആര്നെറി

ഡോക്ടര്‍ ഗ്സ്പാര്‍ ആര്നെറി
എന്തെന്തൊരു വൈഭവശാലി !
കൌശലമുള്ളൊരു നരിയെപ്പോലും
കെണിയില്‍ വീഴ്ത്തും കെങ്കേമന്
കൂറ്റന്‍ പാറ തകറ്ത്തീടും
ചൊവ്വയ്ലേക്കു പറ്ന്നീടും
കണെത്താത്തൊരു നക്ഷത്രത്തില്
ചെന്നെത്തമാ ഡോക്ടര്ക്കു !

So many things made this vaccation (May 2007) special to me. One thing (not the most important one by any count) was the collection of russian stories (translated to malayalam) that i took from Divya. She hand picked the books from her collection and also decided the order in which I should read them.

  1. മായാലോകം - a wonderful collection of juvenile fantasies.
  2. പുഴയിലെ ദീപങ്ങള് - role models, role models, living role models... we had many, but who among us will become one to our next gen?
  3. കടലോരതു ഒരു ബാലന്‍ - spotting goodness
  4. ജീവിത വിദ്യാലയം - a man's richness is to be measured by the diversity of his experiences
  5. മൂണു തടിയന്മാര്‍ - Doctor Gaspar Arnery ...
ന്യൂറ, സുവോക്ക് - unforgettable characters - but to me, someone so mine.

had i read all these at an age meant for them, would i be different from what i'm now? hm ... any way it wouldn't have been as different as it would have been if the driver of the sumo wasn't as responsive as he was when the feat threw me onto his tyres.

what is the apriori probability that i'm what i'm among the infinitely many possibilities? sure its zero if the infinity is uncountable and i believe it is so. but zero probablity events do happen. or would i be what i'm?

... so unlucky is this world. me being different was an almost sure event which didn't happen ... and so lucky is me - compliment of an almost sure event that did happen.

i'm not chokking, but i don't want a hand around my neck now. so ...

A Thorough mathematical post!!!
Found out what that means.."Probability calculated by logically examining existing information. "

I think you are distinct and unique, with/without using probability
