No fun, no games

What’s the point of life
If risk is just a board game
You roll the dice
But you’re just hoping that the rules change

Hugh Grant -Dance with me tonight

What if life itself is just like a board game? I find the idea infinitely depressing. Even if you take your biggest life changing decisions based upon the rolling of a die, you're eternally doomed to go round and round and round in endless circles about the same board. Then when you're finally tired of it, you fold the board and everything you've ever achieved- money, property, titles, family... slithers to the floor in a heap of cheap plastic.

What if life is like a board game?
Isin't it exciting?
In this life you're
A millionaire
Or an enigmatic Mr. X
Oh how I wish life were a board game.

...

There's only one way if you're as determinedly pessimistic as I am today:)

I'm in Chennai, till this evening. Then I'll be in Hyd till the New year, then back to B'bay.
My pessimism had mostly to do with sleep deprivation. Thats cured now, the world's all sunshiny again:)
