A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not “exist.”
In mundane terms, it marks a “leap” in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up!
But this day holds another secret—it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability…
A day of unlocked potential.
Will you or won’t you? Should you or shouldn’t you?
Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability
All my years to this moment
All my roads to this wall.
All my words to this silence
All my pride to this fall
“My mind then wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments—we hear a word that sticks in our mind—or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, if only briefly—we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veils, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen—or we have an episode like the one I had with the M&M cars back at the Husky station.
And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection—certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. We would realize that we have been having another life altogether; one we didn’t even know was going on inside us. And maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real—this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. So just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives.”

In a shocking incident reminiscent of the Delhi gangrape, a 22-year-old woman photojournalist interning with a city-based magazine was allegedly gangraped by five men in the Mahalaxmi area of Mumbai late on Thursday evening.
Congress MP Murli Deora said that Mumbai Police commissioner has said that all five accused in the gangrape case have been arrested.
The Mumbai police will hold a press conference at 1.30 pm today.
The cops had earlier released sketches of suspected five rapists and also detained 20-25 men. 18 teams of Mumbai Police and crime branch are working on this case to speed up investigation.
