Angry Ganeshan --> Masti Ki Paathshala

I have changed the name of the blog from "Ruminations of Angry Ganeshan" to "Masti Ki Paathshala". I felt that the old name had lost its sheen, and that I needed to change with the times. The decision is not uni-directional. I might give the blog the same name again or I might give it an entirely new name, if and when I feel like it.

It's not that I have given up on "Angry Ganeshan" - I still admire him and his unique antics, his choleric and wrathful outbursts, his unique perspective on most things, and his shameless avarice and self-promotion. I am not looking for a complete role-model, but sometimes admire the brazen and bold manner in which he puts across his point, something that I sometimes feel, I need to develop more.

Most people think anger is a negative emotion. Au contraire, I believe that anger is a postive emotion. I shows that one cares and is not completely indifferent to things that happen and affect us. It can be channelised to give more benefit to the world. However, the way one expresses oneself is more important. Anger, if expressed through shouting is counter-effective. If suppressed and bottled up, it leads to long-term explosive behaviour. If expressed smartly through simple communication, it benefits everyone. Isn't that the aim of anger!?

Here's to Angry Ganeshan!
