Bakibab Borkar

I was not born in Goa, but relate to what Bakibab Borkar said about the refining of the human spirit.

"If I am to be born again and allowed to choose my birthplace...
I shall choose Goa... because its scenic beauty
has a supernatural quality of refining the human mind
and turning it inward into the depths of creativity and spirituality."

Being and Time

My last note to my co-workers in Interactive at Ogilvy. June 30, MMX.

Hi All,
It has been good being a part of Interactive Design Dept. for the past many years; from the days of 16 color graphics! Working with the UN of Interactive. But, form changes, times change—a kind of shape-shifting, if you will.

from the Isha Upanishad:
“That moves and That moves not; That is far and the same is near;
That is within all this and That also is outside all this.”

Take care all.
