When I started learning computers, the first course I joined was for e-business, a fancy title but they just teach a RDBMS and a scripting language for webpage development. Even though I never applied that in doing e-business, I have developed some biological databases using that. But in day to day life we do lot of e-business, specially buying things online. I do a lot, sending gifts, buying tickets etc. but for the first time I sold something online, my tickets to Switzerland(since it was a non-refundable ticket). I put an advertisement in craigslist without much hope, but finally it worked. Thanks e-business!
Even though I mess up a lot with these non-refundable tickets, SNCF the train system in

“The very first thing to do, if I may suggest it, is to find out why you are thinking in a certain way, and why you are feeling in a certain manner. Don't try to alter it, don't try to analyze your thoughts and your emotions; but become conscious of why you are thinking in a particular groove and from what motive you act. Although you can discover the motive through analysis, although you may find out something through analysis, it will not be real; it will be real only when you are intensely aware at the moment of the functioning of your thought and emotion; then you will see their extraordinary subtlety, their fine delicacy. So long as you have a "must" and a "must not," in this compulsion you will never discover that swift wandering of thought and emotion. And I am sure you have been brought up in the school of "must" and "must not" and hence you have destroyed thought and feeling. You have been bound and crippled by systems, methods, by your teachers. So leave all those "must" and "must nots." This does not mean that there shall be licentiousness, but become aware of a mind that is ever saying, "I must," and "I must not." Then as a flower blossoms forth of a morning, so intelligence happens, is there, functioning, creating comprehension.”
Most of the time, with our limited knowledge define “must” and “must not” and the worst thing is when we try to impose it on other, thinking that its compassion, love or helping someone. We might have learnt from our elders that we “must not” play in the mud. now can we try to apply to a frog, which is happily playing around in the mud? Is it worth worrying about the frog?If we react for the frog, its just because we are in love with compassion than having compassion for the frog? Is that a compassion or arrogance and egoistic belief in our Intelligence? Can this “must” and must nots” stand steadily in the tough hands of “Time and Space”?Lets, Free our intelligence from “must and must nots”.
