Max is the stranger in my mirror. Max and I are both the same (or is he!!). He has to be – shouldn’t he? He is a partner for all the thoughts that go through in my mind. There were lots of questions from many people comparing Max to Anniyan. Is it? Am I? When I think more and more about it – Remo should have suited better. Of course – I don’t punish people ( or do I? ) with all these.
Yes. Could be that this is like Anniyan. But in any case – it’s not a worse case like Anniyan. It’s all fully under control. Max is someone who is inside the mirror and someone who likes being inside it. But does he have some control on my mind and my thoughts – yes. I have something which I do regularly – when I do something, I give it a thought inside my mind. I talk to myself ( or is it someone else ) in my mind. Max comes into picture here. Started off as someone who came out of my very bad humour sense – but now is a part of something that I do everyday.
You might be wondering how I came up with such a name for the sub-conscious. Max, as I said, is the stranger in my mirror. I named him so because it begins with the same letters that I have in my name. Also, it is a name which I like most. It is short for one of the favourite film characters of mine, Maximus Decimus Meridius. Lots and lots of other reasons which I can cite – but enough on a name.
When I am not with Max, I am Maheswaran.M. I am a person of computers. I finished my graduation in computer science and can call myself a software engineer now.
The blogs I write are purely for the love of being in this huge world of blogging. Its more fun than anything. Both the blogs have ‘me’ written all over it. Everything written in these are purely my beliefs, opinions and what-not on things. And for those who still have the doubt in their mind – yeah Max is me 😛 .
This blog will give an insight of everything that I do from Max’s point of view (or is it the other way??). It will have everything about the books that I read, such and such, and of course occasional ramblings of my own like the First Post which i put in just because i felt like putting it there.
Know more about me and Max through future posts.
I know I am not writing a ‘About Me’. But I would like to quote the great comedian Groucho Marx – “The trouble with writing about yourself is that you can’t fool around. If you write about someone else, you can stretch the truth from here to Finland. If you write about yourself, the slightest deviation makes you realize instantly that there may be more honor among thieves, but you are just a dirty liar.”
I have written this much. I leave the rest to you.
