Holy Horror


“…a survey by the think-tank Policy Exchange, for instance, revealed that 36 per cent of young (British) Muslims believe that those who leave Islam should be killed.” If the result of the above survey reported in 2007, is to be believed, the height of religious fanaticism and irrational cruelty, worry even someone as apathetic as […]

Jokers are Mortal; Jokes, Eternal. But Jokers can reincarnate! ;)


LOL @ Rangnath Commission recommends 10% quota for Muslims (click) ROFL @ “It added that in case of non-availability of Muslims to fill the 10% earmarked seats, these may be made available to other minorities but in “no case” shall any seat within the recommended 15% shall be given to anybody from the majority community.” […]

So many inconsistencies in news reporting of “two lady doctors killing a rape victim’s baby in Raigad”!


Previous post (click) had something related. There I had provided (the following) links, wherein two news agencies, viz., PTI and IANS (former published by DNA (click) and the latter by many publications, including The Times of India [click]) had reported the SAME incident, with conflicting versions. Also, considering the circumstances, and being a doctor, many […]

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 […]

It had to happen. It happened yesterday. After three years!


Yesterday as I was climbing down stairs, engrossed in thoughts, suddenly I heard an enthusiastic “Namaskaar”(a salutation in Hindi). It was one of the sweepers, an older employee of the hostel. I had vaguely registered something to be new on seeing him, but the stream of thoughts in my head, had not allowed me to […]

iBubble. The Perfect Sphere. The Perfect Hollow.

Comparisons are imminent. If I understand myself, still I might not understand someone else correctly, for some contamination of data […]

nOBAlAMA P*ss Prize! Please help me! Or, laugh with me…


I used to read about great people, mostly scientists, but still people who’d had significant and positive IMPACT on the World. The likes of Einstein, Neils Bohr,Schrödinger, Francis Aston, Har Gobind Khorana, and well the list could NOT go on… In ALL cases, I’d first read about their WORKS, and they’d invariably filled me with […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
