360 degrees.....

"A circle is the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a given point . The distance from the center is called the radius, and the point is called the center. Twice the radius is known as the diameter . The angle a circle subtends from its center is a full angle, equal to 360 or 2 pi-radians."

What is it to be a circle?........A moving dot traversing exactly 360 degrees..Having the exact same distance from the the centre point .....Why do we really consider it to be that important....Just because the whole universe is basically based on this 'very important' shape.Why not the square or a cube or as a matter of fact...the line.....???? and why is it that we did name the most important shape in sceintific history as the circle....if we look at it...a ball looks like a circle,yet is called a ball...the zero is a circle with nothing in it...n is yet called a zero..even though a circle too has nothin it it...except empty space and whiteness.A circle has the maximum possible area for a given perimeter, and the minimum possible perimeter for a given area....If the circle is instead cut into wedges, as the number of wedges increases to infinity, a rectangle results....So why this distinction...if we flip through our history books and consider the ancient history,we see that the circle was probably invented by the stone age people who tried to reason with life and ultimately failed in their attempt....therefore probably 'no work' had made them create such a crude but wonderful design which was to change the face of uhman existance in the next few million years.For them,the enjoyment in drawing a circle or rubbing 2 stones to create the eternal inferno was probably much more than a 5yr old taking a picture through a digicam today.So,coming back to our circle....does it really symbollize people who have no work...lookin at it..scientifically we would define work as the product of one unit of force and one unit of displacement....but a circle does show no displacement as our mysterious 'moving dot' comes back to the same place.....hence zero work....So whats the first thing that we picturise in our minds when we r asked to think of a circle........just a round shaped figure on a whitesheet of paper????......have we ever thought about this shape ...when we sleep, or when we dream or lets say when we are high???......have we ever thought that it is through these 360 degress that life actually transcends to an entirly different level...it is through this path of a moving dot that we inevitably realize who we actually are....have we ever noticed that when we are asked to think of something, a circle is the first thing that comes to our mind....or is it because we dont actually think of the circle and it is the mind that makes us think of the circle........


This is my first ever blog post.Ive been seriously thinkin of making one for some time now and now that its done,i guess i do have to put on my thinkin cap....my first blog site was the 360 degs page in yahoo n hence the name...or it just might be that ive finally found out what the circle in my life really means...infinte force and zero displacement.....!!!!!!!!

what the fuckin....tui to definition diye bhoriye dibi be.....uff....

debanuj said...

dnt we seek definition in evrything we learn????

Ronju. said...

You bloody wierdo.....
now THIS is what i call a blog..:D
Definations eh.....well...a blog exsists just to waste time and money doesnt it????
arse..
write sumthin wierder next time...
Heh heh.

debanuj said...

yes yes..ull defnitely get wierder stuffs....nxt time...and the bloody pirpose of a blog is to waste time...whch is the exact thing im doin....

shrey_a_she said...

ok!u myt blame me for my lack of awareness as to the polygonal definitions n dimentions of a CIRCLE...but then after readin ur frst blog,thr r TWO questions in my mind---
i)y r circles or r v dots?
ii)what is there at the centre of the circle?
...plz clarify...

ritu said...

damn man...all i ever thought about a circle was..its a circle..never ever went into the technicalities...actualy didnt have sooo much of time to waste:D good one..keep em coming...

debanuj said...

very nice question shreyo....actually u see...if u consider the smaller aspect of the topic....the circle is U...and the millions of dots comprising the circle r probably the people u encounter and incidents tht happen to u...makin u the cynosure of ur evryday life....on a broader scale...the circle can be compared to the world we live in , in a similar aspect.....

the centre of the circle...probably lies the most important thing that matters to u most...it is wht that drives u on.....

the explanations pretty crappy..hope u do get the point...lol...

debanuj said...

ritu..thanks a lot yaar...at least my wastage of time has finally been appreciated by sum1....lol..if u look closely...its these trivial things that matter to us most..but we tend to overlook it....but enuf with shapes..will hv to think of sumthing new tommorow....

well if one has to know the defination of circle.. i will direct them to this blog.. hahaha

debanuj said...

eije anonymous....i knw who u r...u better learn the definition of the circle fast!!!

insane_sen said...

man o man..thats what i call getting up from the wrong side of the bed!!!! pretty intense stuff dude..keep the entertainment flowing thru words ..but dont forget thru the PIXELS!!!!

debanuj said...

thnks a lot suddho...gr8 to hear the comments flowing...dnt worry..the pixels will always live forever....

beloved_witch said...

right now...at this moment...all that made perfect sense to me.
tomorrow is another story.
so technically if im a circle...would that mean that whichever way i keep going i'll come back to the same place i started. and if i'm the centre..i wouldnt get to move at all, because i would be displacing everything arnd me.
i choose to be neither. but then, as i learnt the hard way...the choice isnt mine to make.

debanuj said...

...i see...u do get the point.......

DeePDiveR said...

Let me don the intellectual cap too! A circle is the most important thing in life....why? Is it not important to have a 'straight' life? that means we have to traverse along a line....yet a line projected infinitely becomes a circle....so lets start treading arm in arm in this 'circle of life'

debanuj said...

gee...u hv surpassed my theory too dude....im amazed...good good...

anjan_et_al said...

hey hey hey..........wat the "heck"!!!.....the whole thing in the universe ain't circular dude....its elliptical (ellipse- ancestor or descendant of a circle; watever!!!)....Homosapiens (Now a days humans!!) discovered circular wheel coz they can't pull down a whole fuking cart full of their yearly meals on a square or rectangular wheeel......so it was the only way out from the deep sh**.......And last but not the least ZERO...now let me remind u that the golden bird holds the credibility to invent this concept or ideology.....which coverts somthing to itself wen multiplied by it or turns out to be infinity (no 1 ever knew how many fking digits it wud hav...!!!)wen sm thing is divided by it........so my dear brother the concept of zero and infinity is as miraculous and insignificant as the hidden tail in humans (Yah...yah...HOMOSAPIENS!!!)..

debanuj said...

@anjan
pretty damn cool.....real cool observation dude.....prolly u r rite......all i wanna point out is that the zero which is so miraculously amazing looks like a circle too...............

besides...i was high whn ui worte this peice......:)..i hope u understand....

anjan_et_al said...

hehehehehehe................well i knw it well that these things comes into mind only wen u r hi..........
