Words to live by

There are certain virtues in laziness. Because when you are not doing anything you are thinking, and when you are thinking you are growing.
-- Javed Akhtar

This observation comes from Anuradha Sen Gupta's terrific interview with Javed sahib on CNN/IBN. His charming voice comes through very clearly. You can read a transcript beginning here, but it's worth having a look at the video beginning here as well - there are a few errors in the transcript, such as in the line I quoted above, and the video adds a couple of fun old photographs.
