ragamuffin v4.0 aka the jaywalker

Almost a decade ago, a friend asked what the best time (as in age) in a person's life was. I replied, "25." He was surprised that I didn't say childhood. My opinion is that only those kids enjoy their childhood who are boisterous and have the previlige to act rude - they do what pleases them without caring what the elders say. But I was a "nice" kid. And I have always felt that being a kid is very hard; everybody is your boss.

As a teenager I used to think that being 25 would be the most enjoyable part of my life. After all, it's an age when one has finished his education; has a job; owns a car and perhaps even a house of his own, and above all he is independent - he could be a support for his parents!

Today I turn 25. But I have none of these. And after spending my savings, now I am shamelessly spending my father's pension in one of the most expensive countries of the world. My total assets are

  • a laptop
  • a few dozen books
  • a few dozen CDs+DVDs
  • 46 USD

Happy Birthday to me!



Too bad that you couldn't see, see the man that boy could be
There is more than meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside
