All philosophers true to the study will go mad some day.
But then again, it is Normal that defines Mad.

Just my food fer thought

“I sat on the floor of my house, drinking a glass of water which I ladled out from the pot, looking down at the traffic below. It was rush hour. The bullocks and cycles were fighting for space on the road. I was reminded, how my grandparents used to whizz by these same roads in air conditioned motor cars and motorbikes living a life of luxury…”

These seem to be pretty unusual thoughts. Reality update: This is the future, whether we like it or not.

What is happening to us? We’ve got a list of problems. I’m going to make a obviously futile attempt of listing them down.

Environment for starters. We are practically occupying every piece of available land. Earlier, there used to be a house every block, then they started to neighbor each other. Now we have houses on top of each other. Probably, we’ll be looking at houses inside each other next. I daresay it’s happening already. After trying to think this out to its root, I came to the only logical conclusion- population. The human race is so ignorantly multiplying itself. It seems to me that we humans have this mindset that we may go on increasing our numbers and yet be self sufficient. Reality check: We’ve got everything of nothing! Very soon, we’ll be either out of land or out of food.

Of course, water will not be a problem. At the disastrous level of global warming going on, I’m quite certain our ice caps will be melting soon. Don’t you worry about those predictions of Madras submerging in around 10-15 years, it will definitely happen. The way we’re using power in this country, we’ll be out of coal very soon, let alone petrol. What are we thinking? We don’t have a perennial supply of petrol, nor do we have of roads. Yet, the automobile industry is booming. And what with the introduction of Nano, every Tom, Dick and Harry will be sporting an own car. Why can’t we understand everything is so inter-related? There will be only cars, no roads. Heaven forbid hover cars. That’s just what our dear old Earth needs for an extremely premature death. Let’s take a simple calculation. There is a signal. Let’s say on an average, twenty cars stand at a signal. Each car burns about 1ml cube of petrol at that signal. So at one signal, for sixty seconds, twenty ml cube of petrol is wasted. At any point of time, at least twenty signals would be on red in any given city. Which gives 400ml cube of petrol. There are around y cities in India alone, which gives us y 400 ml of petrol being wasted, EVERY MINUTE. Can we really afford it? There is, of course, the talk about our miracle plant, jatropa, but let me tell you, it will never be the kind of fuel which we are so used to.

In fact, it is because of us we are that we are today and it is because of us we will be what we will be tomorrow. Sometimes I feel man should have never thought. These thoughts are what lead to our ‘scientific breakthroughs’, which have, incidentally, abused our Earth. I wouldn’t be surprised if the two most happiest people that ever lived on the Earth were Adam and Eve. What would be even less surprising would be me being told that the only way out of this madness would be to revert to the times of Adam and Eve, which I’m very sure would be unacceptable to most people out there. Heaven forbid them drinking out of anything but a packaged mineral water bottle. Reality check: ugh well, there’s not much more from where that came from, trust me!

Moreover, all this disparity is pretty much the icing on the cake. I’m rich, you’re poor. I’m white, you’re black, he’s red. I’m clean, you’re dirty. I’m fine, you’re insane and he’s got AIDS. I’m Hindu, you’re Muslim and he’s Christian. Well I’m sick! Sick of everything. When will it dawn on all the ignorant nincompoops that we are all essentially the same creation? We’re all human beings. IT’s amazing what a huge difference a little different composition in the melanin of the skin could do isn’t it? It went as far as creating war.

Talking about wars, we have our very own Kargil, which makes absolutely no sense. All they are doing is fighting over a boundary line; an imaginary line drawn out of nowhere which causes high wired enmity of human beings who come from the same ancestors and are most probably distant cousins. Come to think about it, the whole concept of boundaries is pretty much dim-witted. We need to pay a sum of money and undergo a tiresome process just so that we have the permission to step over a line that does not even exist... sometimes paying huge sums for that, which eventually fills some politician’s pocket. Animals have no such boundaries. Why..birds fly over boundaries even as we wait for our visas.

Politics! A chance to do something good for the people has been so utterly misconceptualized as a way to get in charge by the power hungry. It is a very very sad scenario. There are a lot of people who do not care about the earth saying "i'm going to live fer a few years only...why bother?" That is not what bugs me...It's those who say they care and actually don't. Be honest people! Coming to honest...very few actually keep themselves honest to what they believe...many just flaunt this pseudo attitude which just comes down to one word...crap! seriously. really..Many would say i don't mind people reading my diary, i'm very open...the fact is if u don't mind any one reading your personal diary it means either of the two things a)you don't have anything to hide, you've been honest to everyone b)You're such a sad soul that you've been lying to your own self and conscience......
...try being yourself and get people who like you for what you are..there's a quote which says "if u can't enjoy your own company, who will? think about it people...


The age of the Earth can be approximated to 2 billion years over which a myriad of changes are said to have taken place. But has the Earth really changed? In the beginning the Earth was a big ball of fire, smoke, water and a cocktail of gases. Today, the Earth is still a ball of fire, smoke, water and a cocktail of gases. The basic instinct of the Neanderthal was survival which continues to be the basic instinct of the modern man. It was a daily struggle of the early man to find him his daily bread, which is still the daily struggle of the present human being.

Change, however, has taken place. It is so agreed. The presence of science and technology make it so evident it can even go unsaid. The basic thoughts and instincts of humans remain the same, what influences these thoughts is that which has changed.

We, the only animals with a developed sense of intelligence or so we call ourselves, have brought in various new concepts, ideas, inventions, all in the scope of “improvement”. But how far have they improved our lives?

Probing into the science of the nucleus of an atom has brought about the hydrogen and atomic bombs, the two most individually deadly weapons against human kind. Industrialization led the development in many countries, but lack of precautionary measures has presented before us the problems of pollution & global warming. The creation of ‘democracy’ has given way to ‘corruption’. This cyclic thinking had invaded even divinity, as is evident with the believers of different deities battling out the supremacy of their lords. The most recent addition to the list of miseries is terrorism.

The acts of individuals or organizations against mankind have left the world shaken. The policy of terrorists seems quite obvious: “no country shall be spared”. They have done it. From the far west to the Far East, they have instilled terror. Till quite recently, it was a belief that the common man alone may be affected by these acts of terror, which is then later to have an effect on the politician, but the recent assassination of political leader Benazir Bhutto leaves us gaping at a troublesome reality. The situation has grown quite bad for now, an incentive; a prize has to be given to control pollution and war which is, by way of life, the duty of every human being.

These phenomenons beat the track to the same consequence, the extinction of life on this Earth. They would probably even bring it back to the way it all originally began- a mass controlled solely by the forces of nature. The sun will eventually turn itself into a dwarf that shall no longer support planets; the scientists predict another ice age in a few million years. These will eventually lead to the elimination of any living existence on the face of this Earth. Terrorism, pollution, and the prediction of a third world war may, however, turn this world lifeless sooner than foretold.

My love...

Here's another one of my futile attempts at poetry, but this time, it was really what i feel...
know it's a bit sappy n all...but I had to get it out of me..... for you...

I love thee a love so deep
In it I immerse myself complete
My heart beats of this love lasting,
Forever and undying, everlasting and uniting
Yet a hand pinches and awakens
Me from this dream enchanting
Nothing is eternal, a little voice says
I shall always be there, my love stays

Beloved, you are I and I am you, together
We shall see this tempest through
Love is on our side, sorrow we'll vanquish
Let our love grow more and dear
With each other, we are always together
Minds always close, doubt seldom near
Strength thy has my comrade, and fear
A far away, the future a mist unclear

My thoughts are ever of you, of eyes
So endearing and of a smile enticing
My love'll persevere like you shall
A little hurt, a little broken but willing
To be healed, loved and loving
These are my thoughts, my words true
My heart waits for your whisper "I love you"

My dad and his philosophy part 2

Well yeah donno y but just wanted to record this other conversation between me and my dad...
The scene goes like mom and i had a tiff and i with silent tears lie on my parents bed...Dad enters...(hoping to make me smile)

Dad: What are you doing?
Me: what does it look like? i'm lying down on this bedsheet.,.!(yeah i was pretty rude to him sorry) you know what's the difference between you and that bedsheet?
Me: silence(not wanting to answer)
Dad: it's that you can feelall the pain you are right now..and the bedsheet cannot.
Me: silence
Dad: Enjoy that pain you're feeling..n be happy that the bedsheet cannot do that
Me: wants to burst out laughing but must control laughter or dad'll think he won!
Dad: Think how great it is to think that thought of pain and hurt....n how the bedsheet cannot
Me: So isn't it better if i'm a bedsheet? it seems better off no tears no riff raffs ....
Dad: that's true but that's only if u dont' see the beauty of the feeling of pain and thoughts the beautiful thoughts
Me: But i thought that in the end one is supposed to have no thoughts at all; no thoughts; no pain; no feelings...isn't that nirvana?
Dad: yes that's pretty much true.........(starts again but i interrupt)
Me: so isn't it better if i were a bedsheet?
Dad: exactly, now you're talking high philosophhy..that the entire purpose of life become a bedsheet!
Me: can't control start laughing
Dad: yess! i made u laugh!
n well folks..that's my dad! :-)

The 'talk'

i know i know i just matter..wanted to write in about this talk me my bro my mom n my dad had on saturday all started like this..
my bro got a phone call n rapidly walks into a room where he can get some mom immediately asks who on the dad starts joking that it was my bro's girl..(it's a joke cos my bro's hardly spoken to 10 gals as far as i know) mom goes on saying that she would believe it easily if someone told her i had a boyfriend but not if my bro had a gal ..( easy enough...)..n so it began...we started talking philosophy then onwards...
my mom was talking about how one should not be content on what he is for contentedness (contentedness...???) would hinder progress while my dad n i were saying that happiness is the purpose of life..n that progress has no meaning for one day everything shall go back to the Neanderthal..(yes i love philosophy u got a prob? :p) dad was quoting one of my fav proverbs then of G B Shaw "the reasonable man adapts himself to the world the unreasonable man adapts the world to himself..hence much of the progress in the world depends upon the unreasonable man"...but that night my dad said something pretty cool..only 4 lines though...he had told those 4 lines to a guy in a german pub who was "flabbergasted" after listening to them...the lines were....Think. Think thoughts that result in actions. Do actions that give results. When u do the action don't bother about the result, because bothering is, again, a useless thought.

pretty cool na? in the end somehow mom n dad came to a consensus..( they were never able to before cos my dad was talking on a much higher plane than my mom was talking about 'i' while dad was talking about 'I'. however after 2 1/2 hours they finally came to a consensus..i'm not complaining though..good thing . it kept me awake..n i had to stay awake..i had to call my special someone n wish him na? ;)

my first post

heya first post in my first blog..feels weird.......

I'm a just a plain unspoiled angelic innocent 15 year old little girl who can make a living outta lying...except that sentence :p

Where exactly does one find happines?
In love, frienship or god given kindness?
What exactly is this feeling I want to embrace?
Which is sometimes found in the memory of bygone days

Is to be happy the ultimate purpose of living?
Or is it the very sole cause of trying?
I ask a million times and look a million places
But nowhere do I find an answer to my prayers

Then I realised happiness comes not
When you win the race but
It comes when you are the cause
Of the smile on another man's face

it's kinda amateursish...i know...but just wanted to give it out..
