Fine balance between lack of creativity and its excess. [Highly allegorical post!!]


I had always felt that our education does not promote original thinking, which is very detrimental to nation’s progress, as without it research can never be carried out! A very simple reason so many students fail exams is because they copy their neighboring candidate’s answers verbatim. If teachers would only teach adequate language skills, then […]

States of Matter. State that matters – An Explanation. And a joke!


This is the explanation for my previous post – States of Matter. State that matters. (click) I do not believe in writing ambiguous posts, especially as part of the reason I write is to know how others and I view the same things differently. I believe, if not most, some people do have reasons for […]

States of Matter. State that matters.


Do not be so fluid. So fluid that you fall into the next empty space. No shape. No place. Existence defined only by gradients of availability. Never able to climb; only fall. You will spread yourself wide. You will spread yourself thin. And before you know it, you will evaporate into nothingness. Do not be […]

Kya jaanoon sajan?…


I have incidentally never discussed music on my blog, and apart from this one, I do have a few other posts in my mind, which I might publish subject to availability of time! Through this post, I want to express my unsurpassed admiration for one song–‘Kya janoon sajan’. Apart from having a most hauntingly painful […]

Figures of Speech


Have you ever wondered how wonderful an invention the human language is? Words can stand for meanings so specific, that people spend their entire lives, just mulling over each word, its possible synonyms, the subtleties in the differences of their meanings–writing judgements of court cases, or ‘terms and conditions’ on a web site, or a […]

Flickering lights


R: Not for those who consider themselves minors. “You know, I love you.” Darkness was gathering outside, with occasional attempts at countering it conspicuously emanating from the windows of a few apartments strewn all over. But, none of the two made any such attempt. He looked out through the oval vent and wondered if it […]

Educational post


Smart Kid: Please gimme first rank this time at least! Smart God: I can’t. Others are also asking for the same thing! SK: That’s unfair! I come just second everytime. 😦 SG: Calculate area under the curve of what everyone gets in their lives against time, and you’ll know, I’m very fair. SK: I don’t […]

Duel


Tonight, I see you standing with him.Hand-in-hand.Ever so slightly do you squirm.Only I understand. That to him now you belong,Is for a fact.And for you I will not long,With me was a pact. Had I known what this would be to see–You and him…But then, never could I foresee;It was a whim. As I mildly […]

Insanity Person(alit)ified!


This is a cathartic post. Never in my life have I crapped so much in one go at one place. This is going to be a sumptuous banquet for my dear readers. Bon appétit! Also, I strongly recommend parents who have children that they make their progeny read this to turn them into confident adults […]

Democracy!


Rohit’s voice boomed, “You’re so arrogant to believe you didn’t require a creator to be created?” Manoj responded–amidst boo’s. But when he was heard, it was with disinterest. Rohit’d won the debate competition. Manoj wasn’t disappointed because he’d lost, but because he wasn’t heard. Rohit winked. “Now you know why I say I believe?”
