RIP Sir!

He lived most of his life in Sri Lanka. I admire his passion for science and research. He was a great man.

I should have guessed that you would be a fan. Clarke was so far ahead of the curve..like Sagan and Asimov.

He was lucky to have written when he did because now we just take all of this technology for granted and the mystery is gone. We don't ooh and aah at it anymore we just get mad at it when it doesn't work.

[keshi] he found his freedom there, how a beautiful island with a turbulent atmosphere can give life to the greatest humans- he loved and enriched Lanka and the people of Lanka took care of him so well. He will not be forgotten.

[jeevan] he is the master among the grandmasters. and he inspired many, made our lives better.

[milady] im better now milady.

[cindy] he postulated the Geostationary orbit...but his life was low ley coz he wrote SF and not popular fiction. hemmm...

[jason] thank you bro. it's a happy moment to see him say he lived for what he wanted and has nothing left to regret. he is truly amazing.
Keshi said…
yes isnt that amazing!

**how a beautiful island with a turbulent atmosphere can give life to the greatest humans

and alot of Sri Lankans fled the Island after the '83 riots. But to this man SL became a paradise, with all the troubles as well. I hv great RESPECT for him.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
