A theory of intelligence II

Note: Please read the post right below this one (A theory of intelligence-I), before you read this.


everday events, rare thoughts

Sachin Garg
(baarahwi pass)


Chapter 1
Bare Beginning

I was not in free fall.


This is a teaser preview of the book. Starting from the cover page and ending with the first sentence of the book. The week was occupied by taking the toughest decision related to the book which is to whether write it or not. The decision has been made. The book is going to be written. I Am not aiming to get it published as of now. The aim is to test myself.
Here are the recent developments:

Present status:

  • I had planned on five chapters initially but I soon realized that all of them were beyond the scope of a chapter and they have been promoted to five parts of the book.
  • All my analysis have given me a whopping twenty percent chance of being up to something worth while here. I am more than happy with twenty percent. Its a lot more than I can ask for.
  • Two chapters of the first part have been
    written and its been an exhilarating experience. Writing a book needs thirty sixty degree thinking with highest possible concentration, which some how
    I had not expected. Its really taxing
    for the brain and can not be done for more than thirty minutes at stretch. Having knitted the story in my skull before beginning is turning out to be a HUGE asset.
  • All my creative khudak (urge) is being satisfied by the book these days which might mean that I become irregular at my blog. With GRE just ten days away, life is getting hectic.
Three authors need a special mention for my futile/best-ever attempt:
  • I wanted to find a way of paying tribute to the man who has encouraged every other DCEite to attempt writing a book. Some how, I cant help assuming that the number of IITians trying to emulate him cant be small. I have named the first chapter same as the first chapter of his book -bare beginnings. I need to clarify here that my book is in no way similar to Chetan Bhagat's and I am not a fan of his writings. But he is an inspiration power house for the not-so-talented in literature but gifted at story knitting janata.

  • My only inspiration to write is Ayn Rand. Again, I can not say I am in love with her writings but I want to write like her. But she was gifted. Am I? Finding an answer to this question pretty much sums up the aim of the book.
  • How can I let go a chance to bash Robin Shama. Heres the story behind my rivalry with the author of 'the monk who sold his ferrari':14 hours to my Transmission Lines and Wave Guide exam and my friends tell me about the awesome reviews they have read for the book. I cant resist. I started reading the book thinking I ll read just a few pages. The starting is pathetic.What makes the book so popular?I had to read beyond. The middle part is also bakwaas. May be there is some thing about the ending. Two hours to the exam. The ending was terrible.The exam was obviously screwed, as usual. I hate Robin Sharma.


Please share your first impression on reading the following and what they make you expect.

  • The idea of writing a book by a baarahwi (twelfth) pass person who has not had any writing success except the one in a Story Writing Competition organised by Scholastic in class X.
  • Title: A theory of intelligence.
  • Subtitle: Everyday events, rare thoughts
  • First sentence: I was not in free fall.
Writing a book is the biggest expression of freedom. Try it.

the speed with which u are minting blogs even in the face of GRE, I dunno if ever you get down to writing the bok, but I am sure your blogs will be collected and printed...

if your book is half as interesting as the blogs about it i think we are looking at a bestseller :)

and ya...ayn rand fan too...welcome to the club

sachin said...

now that i have got a few people interested in hte plot of my book, its time i put a date on the plot-release..
i ll put it on 3rd oct..
bhai's b day..

20 percent deserves editing now..
its more of kinda back to half percent..
steam is about to burn me with all the latent heat..
so dont worry..

@seth darling,
in my case, GRE is an all the more motivation to write..
thats the way its always been with me..
work load makes me strive harder for creativity..
thanks for the compliment..
whne it comes to you, the mildest of compliments spurs me on..
i am not too sure what you mean by getting my blog printed though..

when i read the comment i actually found the compliment too good to be true..
thank you so much for the appreciation..
luckily, i havent been short of content for the book and am so god damn excited about it..
am not letting go a chance to advertise it just to make it an ego issue to push myself..
i must confess that even though i am an ayn rand fan, i havent read atlas shrugged..
just read the fountainheaad and my story line is analogous to the same in some ways..
thank you

sachin said...

nobody is looking forward to the book more than myself..
i am so looking forward to it that it is the only thing i see..

i could empathize with your views on hindi hypocrisy so preffered to write in hindi..

is sometimes wish i wrote in hindi but i realize that the damamge was done before i was old enough to decide the language i want to write in..

koi na..
at least i make sure i talk in hindi in restaurants..
