Love is magical. It takes you into the unknown. New worlds. New Emotions. " I would say the principle means of escape from the loneliness which affects most men & ......their lives" . It is a luxury to come home to your family after a hard day. To a caring soul at the end of day. Even for a introvert who gets lonely only around the crowd,family works. :) . By all means get a family. :)

Really glad that the TFD forum covers variety of topics to interest everyone but alas it's not exhaustive. There are loads to discuss on classic music compositions/ western music /Practicing Piano pieces etc. Thumbs up anyone?

Topic: Meaning of "Commoditized" in this context?
Posted: Monday, October 27, 2014 8:04:17 AM
Hi all,
Romany, This is Alex,a business graduate from India.I think the word Commoditized is in vogue because I hardly remember hearing the word commodified in my 2 years business course.This is only my opinion.

Jerry.Wang, I believe this query got to be in the business forum rather than in a leterature forum. Now, to answer your question "You mean like commercialize?"

In business sense, when a product gets commoditized, it becomes very difficult to market the product to your customer. Cloud computing helps service providers to share infrastructure/capabilities even if you dont own them. You can enter into a service aggrement and share the resources with others in the market. So,for instance, as in this case whether you get the services from Amazon or Google does not make any difference. So from Amazon's point of view how will you add value to your product and sell it? Writer says that (ironically) in the age of rapid growth in technology it is all boiling down to People/ human resources.

Hope I have made my point clear.Cheers!
Topic: Cupid's Arrows by Kipling

Hi Roman,
. I am a big fan of Kipling's works. Its my own personal problem that I could never take it lightly when someone calls someone ugly. That's why I would never approve its usage in literature. I have told myself a lot of times to take it easily and not get upset. I don't dislike Kipling's works for it. But I would rather have it put in some other way. That's why I wrote it as my ersonalopinion. Having said that I can clearly understand what was in Kipling's mind and I always try to be an easy going guy. 😊

Hi mcurrent,

Let me try to explain. By the lines "his was a face to dream about and try to carve on a pipe-head afterwards" he just means that his face is not good looking or handsome.
That his face is not among the ones that will make girls' heads turn in askance or otherwise.

My personal opinion:
It is one of the rudest and insulting 'character introduction' you will read. After being very rude in calling him "ugliest man in Asia" he further goes on to say it is even more uglier in his own typical style!
