A resolve to become a better quacktor


For those of you wondering, why do I keep on coming up with nonsensically dark posts (click) with even more nonsensical brutality, I tried very hard to introspect (my using this term with such high-frequency repetition used to be just another torture technique [;)]), and realized I always aspired to be one of these famous […]

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 […]

Up against “What’s up?”; please help! :(


Long back my parents would ask me to be more graceful in dealing with relatives, e.g., to ask them “tamey kem chho” [Gujarati for “How’re you”?], though it literally means not “how”, but “why are you?”! Isn’t that offending, or at least a deeply existential query? Plus, I used to find it pointless. I’d ask, […]

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 […]

Do I deserve pink chaddis?


*Chaddi is a word used interchangeably for “shorts” or “briefs/panties”. This is a post I’ve been planning to do since long, because it was after a long time some event had made me introspect and analyze things with utmost depth possible, and yet leave me, possibly, without answer. Also, this post is going to be […]

Another interesting article


In one of my interactions with a fellow blogger, the issue of purpose of life was raised. Not that I can allow someone else to define that purpose for myself, except for if it’s through a form of coercion I can’t thwart, but it’s always interesting to note others’ views on the issue. Someone else’s […]

Pride, Arrogance, Rudeness, etc.


SUNDAY, May 10, 2009 When I’d published this post the last time around, I wasn’t completely satisfied with the outcome. Moreover, after researching a bit on the internet, I found better distinctions between the terms, and thought it necessary to include few more confounding terms. I’ve retained the original post at the end of the […]
