The Initio

This being my first post, I'll keep it short. (Adding the 'sweet' bit borders dangerously on corniness)

So here it goes! And all that jazz.

Hi, I'm Aditya, and I was feeling excessively creative about fifteen minutes ago. A few minutes of mucking around with templates and other such paraphernalia enabled me to put that to use.

Now wait a minute.

If you are getting the idea that this blog is some spur of the moment thing, as Jeremy Clarkson often puts it,
You'd be wrong. Very wrong.
Now it goes without saying that there'd be good posts and not so good ones, allthough statistically things ought to even out. But then again,
There are three types of lies in this world. Lies, Damn lies and statistics.
-Benjamin Disraeli
As to why it took me so long to jump on to the blog bandwagon, a wise man self referentially once said:
It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's law.
As you must have guessed by now, the wise man in question is Douglas Hofstadter.

Do keep visiting now and then!

Nice first post! Hadn't heard the Disraeli line before, LOL :-)

And Hofstadter's law, I trust you have read his most excellent Godel,Escher, Bach - ``An Eternal Golden Braid'' ? If no, I strongly recommend that you read it sometime soon :-)
