Learning to think at problem solving

So there we go with the bloggers going ga ga over the Sudhir's excellent write up on the meet last Sunday. I bet almost everyone of us would have something to add on the meet and me ofcourse ain't an exception, so here I go and thanx to the indibloggers for spurring me to write again am out of the block folks..:) Trust me Ravin, Bala and your team it was a great event. Amidst the impressive line up of events and rains that I so much missed that Sunday evening factually one incident got me keep the thinking hat on for a while at least later that evening and what was that if you'd ask simple it all began with the frantic request of the thunderror (http://thunderror.blogspot.com) and all those dear souls who helped him out with his car. Frankly what amazed me was the approach to problem solving. Almost everyone out there simply thought the best way to get a car (and oh my god this car was an obese fella, a suzuki Swift – grrr..... always felt it was a Renault design on steroids), out of the ditch nay pit nay just another sunken ground left by our chweeto read confused corporation was to lift the god damn car....ooh la la...thats tough man...cant we have some lateral thinking and thats what the situation demanded. So one look at the situation and a brain wave.... fill the sunken ground and get her out. And thats just what we did, stones were brought to give a fillip to the sunken ground below and lo in a couple of moments the obese lady was rolled out in reverse. So thats the moral of the day, the need of the hour is lateral thinking, if only we could address the issue in thoughtful manner with a little difference cant we solve most issues that plague us. Perhaps as one of successful American millionaire business women of the 20th century put it there's nothing better like a thing called a “common sense” approach!


P.S. And hey by the way folks my earlier posting on Halwa bites the dust....its halwa to one and all the shop has closed down...sob ..sob..no more alwa's!!
