La Mauvaise Foi

La liberté est ce que vous faites avec ce qui a été fait à vous.   (Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you) - Jean-Paul Sartre.   You try to wake up on time every morning. Sometimes you have had a good sleep, sometimes you haven’t, because you were anxious. You try to finish your morning routine as early as possible because you have to leave home by 8AM; to reach office by 9 AM. Office, a place where you spend at least 9 hours of your day, working on things that you probably do not even make use of. But they are important, because they are owned by someone else and they would sell it to other people and make money. You will have to help them make that money because a tiny fraction of that money becomes your salary. There is another person above you, whose primary job is to manage you and make sure you work as intended. You aspire to be that person someday, as he on the other hand, aspires to be the person above him. 

Niagara Falls

This has been an exhilarating day. Jonah, Seb, BJ and I drove to Niagara falls. The drive was excellent. We had good conversation along the way. 

Niagara Falls 
Drive: Indianapolis to Niagara Falls
Start: 5 AM
Distance: 360 Miles
Expected Time: 9 hrs 5 Mins
Reached: 2:00 PM
Actual Time taken: 9 hrs 


On reaching the hotel that we had booked, we realised how crappy it actually was. Scottish inn is run by a Gujrati Indian and is horribly dusty with age old furniture. The refrigerator was filled with dust and looked like it was a century old. Anyways, looking at our disappointment and considering our shared ethnicity, the owner offered us a bigger room for the same money. 

Niagara falls is beautiful. We took a walk down the stairs that took us closer to the falls. The ferry ride called "maid of the mist" that takes us close to the horse shove falls was interesting. 












Almost 60% of the people there were Indians, 20% Chinese and rest from the other parts of the world. The light show at dusk was impressive.
