Is Steve Jobs a Konkani?

He certainly sounds like a Konkani in this article in The Economist.

Mr Jobs, a pescatarian (ie, a vegetarian who eats fish) … . (you want more?)

… he proclaims his belief in karma and in love. … love of one's ideals. Always do only what you love, and never settle, he advised … . His brush with cancer, in particular, seems to have focused his mind. “Death is very likely the single best invention in life,” Mr Jobs told his young audience. “All external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”

Overall, an excellent article!

  1. He loved it!!!. So..whenever you two meet, you guys have something to talk about…and he will be very happy becos he hasn’t found anyone who is FOA so far.

  2. Hi Shilpa:

    yes! Steve Jobs rules!

    I reread the linked article and still a great read and inspiring!
    “Always do only what you love, and never settle, …” seems to still be a valid way to lead our lives.

    and glad to hear your guy is also a FOA (friend of apple) :-))

    Konkanis rule! 🙂

    ps, let me know what he thinks of the article.

  3. Pesca….pesca..what????
    I have a guy at home who idealizes Steve Jobs(and something tells me you are SJ’s fan too), will show this post to him.
