Deepika's RK Tattoo

Deepika's RK tatoo is a function of human beings' view of certainty and usual optimism about future. Things however don't work that simple.

- Ranbir Kapoor's career is rocking. He works with the best, including Katrina, considered by more people as more beautiful and successful than Deepika.
- Ranbir's mother must be telling Ranbir to keep his options open rather than lock-in to a relationship early on.  Look at what happened to Abhishek - he would have got Karishma, but ended up with a much better Aishwarya.
- Deepika is beautiful and that she is independent makes her a very attractive mate. Many men must be wooing her. Ranbir could be thinking there is a danger of her dumping him. (She has had a few affairs in past). It is better he dumps her.
- Deepika must be thinking similarly.
- Maybe, one of them cheated. That's irrelevant though. Maybe, and importantly, the other got to know.

For all other kinds of relationships there are no set rules as are common in blood relationships. People play freewheeling games. Uncertainty emerges from the fact we do not know what the other person is thinking or planning.


PS:
1. Will Saif's confidence win?
2. The Undercover Economist reports that  Johannes Spinnewijn has discovered that job-searchers tend to be far too optimistic about their chances of finding a new job quickly.
