One Hashtag to Save the World


In continuation to a post I had written on March 2012, LINK for Purba Ray’s blog, I write this post after weeks of deliberation. A strange new fad had gripped the world about 15 days ago. Suddenly, everyone one was dumping ice cold water on themselves, recording it and then challenging others to do likewise. … Continue reading

Thesis: Delhi Metro Might Be a PN Junction Diode


Fever does amazing things to you. An empty mind is the Devil’s workshop they say. And lying on the couch, doing nothing can generate many thoughts in the head. Some make sense, some may not, but I will share them all anyway. I have been travelling in the metro since a long time now, courtesy … Continue reading

Of Heroes


The steam from the cup of coffee whirls itself into a myriads of different shapes. As the sugar particles slowly immerse into the the hot beverage through the thick foam, so does this thought penetrate into my mind. What is a hero? The word of Greek origin, was used to describe demi-gods who showed such … Continue reading

Think and Answer – 1


Most of the times my brain is filled with questions. And I keep pondering over them. I have an annoying habit of asking random, out of the blue questions. And it is usually a few till now whom I have tortured 😉 But now, I think, once in a while I will be a bore … Continue reading

The Experiment


The 2010 US movie is a remake of a 2001 German flick called “Das Experiment”.  Both movies were based on the “Stanford Prison Experiment” which was conducted in 1971. The basic gist of the plot is that 26 normal human beings, strangers to each other are picked for a psychological experiment. They are randomly divided … Continue reading

Buiding A Nation


Happy Independence Day! Today was the day 63 years ago that we broke the shackles of British Imperialism that had binded us since more than 200 years. It was the fruit of the labours of the countless millions who dreamed of a free India, believed in the dream and strived forward to achieve it. So … Continue reading

Aimless Media


A few days ago, my mail account beeped a new mail from BlogAdda. They were having yet another contest and this time the topic was, “Is Indian Media Misusing It’s Freedom?” The topic got me thinking. It had been a while since I had seen any news channels (I prefer the 15 minutes news on … Continue reading

India: Going Forward into the Dark Ages


Honour killings and Khap Panchayats are the latest issues that everyone is talking about. Each day we read about parents/grandparents/brothers killing their own daughters/sisters. The Khaps support this medieval system and dispense justice of the dark ages, when reason was something man had lost. But why isn’t anything happening to curb this menace. The answer … Continue reading

Idea


The creation of mind, formless in being. Immortal, indestructible, cannot be seen. But, what power an idea holds. Can change the tide as it unfolds. The above lines are my attempt to define an “Idea” in my own word. The dictionary defines it as anything that exists in the mind, as a result of mental … Continue reading

Random Thoughts – 2: ‘Why’


“Why?” A simple monosyllabic, three lettered word, but very powerful when used properly. This word has been on my mouth since the day I was born. Yes, I have questioned each and everything with a simple ‘Kyun’(Why in Hindi/Punjabi and many other Indian languages). This has caused a lot of headaches for anyone who has … Continue reading

Perfection vs. Imperfection


I am just vomiting the thoughts in my head on this blank sheet, without filtering and/or editing them. Since some days I have been obsessing about being perfect.  I seeked perfection in everyway, till I realised that one cannot achieve that. Perfection is fine but it is our imperfections that define us. You don’t know … Continue reading

Red Light District


Prostitution is one of the oldest professions known to human kind and sex is rooted deep into our culture. Our mythology is full of stories about sexual escapades. The Kamasutra was written on this soil and it was our ancestors who made the sculptures on the famous Khajuraho temples that depict various sexual acts. But … Continue reading

In Search of…..


I had an account on Yahoo a few years ago, which got hacked somehow. But, while I had the right to use it, I spent a lot of time on Yahoo Answers. Some of my answers, especially those under the Religion and Spirituality section were chosen as “Best Answers”. I am sharing the same here … Continue reading

What is normal behavior?


How would you define normal? Isn’t normal relative? If it is then who decides the bench mark. Why do we have to do what society around us thinks is normal instead of following our own paths. Isn’t it normal to follow one’s dreams?

Random Thoughts


I have been inactive for a long time on my blog. For almost 2 months. Many events have occured in this time that have threatened to change my country or the world. But, I will talk about them and my views on those events in later posts. I had many ideas but could not type … Continue reading
