is to be ruthless when you don’t.

    Idea, I was surprised to see this here and not xxfactor.

    The only way to be generous when you care,
    is to be ruthless as if you don’t care.

    How can one be ‘generous’ at one point when one does care, by being ‘ruthless’ at another point when one doesn’t care! If you are talking ‘relativity’, it doesn’t necessarily have to equate.

    Strange! My comment didn’t get posted!


  5. Loved the play…..keep ’em coming….:)


  6. Hmmm….. loads of extremism going on.

    Someone to surprise. You can rack your brain a little. No, a little more :)

    Ruthless sounds cruel. Try indifferent.

    @ Ashish: You live, you learn. But I hope you never have to experience all that it takes to learn this.

    @ Rambler: Why? This isn’t about gender stereotypes or male-bashing. It is just about emotions.

    @ Brad: You can care and then stop caring. Or not care at all and then suddenly start. Read the post again. And sorry about the comment block – my spam filter works overtime sometimes.

    @ Pensivelawyer: What play?

    @ Brewster’s Angle: :-D Howdy, pardner?

    @ Eve: Cruel it is. I stand by what I said.


  9. Brad says:

    I agree with the 2nd part; not very convinced about the 1st part. Will have a tete-a-tete’ with you shortly, will bring it up then! :)


  10. IdeaSmith says:

    @ Brad: Looking forward to it!
