Ad hoc rocks!

What do you expect from a careless undergrad, especially when he hails from the most laid-back city Hyderabad? That he never plans for anything and takes everything as it comes right! I have tried to do that too. But unfortunately, as Murphy would have liked it, I tried to plan and before it took off, it went kaput! Already there was a forerunner to this, but I was too busy to notice that nature is tryin to tell me not to plan. Anyway, disappointed but not disgusted, here I am tryin to write.
Ad hoc is a taboo in software development, I agree! I exponentially increases costs, versioning goes berserk, configurations are catapulted and all but in life, it teaches you bliss! Following instincts is the best way to get the most out of life. Go out into a strange land all alone, do whatever you like. Talk to self, dance like no one's watching or just doze off like a log. This will make you more happy than you expect. When you carry no expectations, whatever you get is more than what you want and will make you happy. When you go to a movie you know nothing of, you will appreciate it more than when you expect something from it. Plan a meeting, don't decide what to do. Just walk, talk and enjoy your company! That will be the best time you ever spent. If you plan for the same things, along with walk, your sub-conscious plans something else too which if you dont accomplish will deject you. The same thing holds for new year resolutions! Every year, just make a single resolution that you will live life yourway! That will suffice! Why make resolutions and live life for their sake? This is like making stupid laws and cribbing over them!
n hey, what happens in a conversation when the people involved share terrific chemistry and enjoy thr company of other, but there is a subtle mismatch or some invisible deterrant in the form of absence of a common mother tongue? Actually, everyone is comfortable speaking their mother tongue because it is the only tongue where you have a word for every expression, or you can map each expression you want to convey to appropriate words, with appropriate feelings. But, in absence of such, foreign languages like English dominate which make the proceedings seem formal and as if followin a corporate etiquette. This is sad! The only savior in such cases is the understanding and chemistry people share! I really wish there had been a sweet universal language that we all knew by birth or that we would learn not in convents, but in cradles!

yeah very true..planning something before hand never really works out in most of the cases.its better to live by the moment(this applies more so for vacations bcos i planned a 100 things dat i wud do during this month long vacation and ended up doing nothing)..

Yeah english does bring in some amount of formality but no other option also naa esp when u are speaking with frnds..

English invariably brings in with it a cold, stiff and formal shoulder with it, but it is spiced up with a generous helping of local vocab and i think this flexibility has brought things to a more informal level.. but to me, as you wud vouch for, english hadn't really stood in the way nor has hindi or telugu.. i think we were pretty comfy with watever lang we chose to put our words into.. sometimes even the silences and smiles between us communicated volumes, but the idea of a universal lang we can ALL learn in the cradle itself is absolutely fantastic... btw, i am glad you are atleast posting now.. trying to break thru the hyd shell, eh ??

well as i see it language need not be the same re. i understand the need for a new universal language.. but somehow that leaves little variety and little speciality to mankind's way of communication, a lil commonplace if i have put it rightly.

also people shud plan but not expect. if u dont plan things will defly go berserk. but not all things are under certain control so u might as well shud be ready for any drastic unwanted variations in the result.

You sure Naresh about that ad-hoc thing? Because I know you as a person who does his jobs with systematic planning. And you have handled all of them pretty well.

The concept of the universal language was very nice. But perhaps there is one already- The language without words, the language of expressions. U can say a lot with your expressions and any discerning person would understand you. it is often a more effective way of communication than using words, just as music is sometimes more touching than lyrics.
