Educated Fool

Version 2

Every country has its own education system. Every education system has its own share of benefits and drawbacks. But when the negatives outweigh the positives, a sort of abilitative redundancy sets into the minds of those receiving this education. It is not possible for such people to perform upto their full potential. An even more wretched and desolate thought is that these people don’t even realise that they are being duped.

Mausoleum of Love

IMG_5767

It is one of the most breathtaking and wondrous sights to behold and yet every-time I see it, it leaves me a tad melancholy. It had the air of a grand old woman who had drunk out of the cup of life and found a dead beetle at the bottom of it. To say beauty has a price, in this case atleast, would be spot on. The Taj Mahal is a national treasure that weeps for not only the dead who are buried in her foundations, but also the living who flock to see her.

Savage Garden

As the human population is growing, we find ourselves confined to smaller spaces. So, as is logical, we grow our towns and cities without paying any heed to how the earth in that area will sustain the population. We find ourselves encroaching on the territory that belongs to creatures that were around long before we understood the meaning of civilisations. We claim their homes as our own and then when they fight back, we burn them alive and call them encroachers.

Shape of You

Version 2

Men. Men today have forgotten what it is to be a man. In today’s day and age, males are so insistent on being boys and “living free” that they can no longer encompass the true meaning of being a man. Being a man not only refers to putting on a suit at a wedding- which, by the way, every man should do; even your best pair of jeans are NOT formals- it means being chivalrous, being compassionate and taking up responsibility of themselves, if no one else. Not someone who can just pay the bills like clockwork. But also take a hard look at yourself girls- because you have become exactly that and lost the spirit of being a woman.

The Way You Look Tonight

“ All you have to do is take a shower and shave!”, is often what is said to most sons by their mothers and still women are told to lower their standards. Latest trends in clothing have somehow managed to make matters even worse. Gentlemen, seeing your underwear gaping through the gap between your too- short t-shirts and far-to-baggy jeans is not as picturesque, as you may have been deluded into believing.

City of Blinding Lights

When people talk about art, the first things that come to my mind are paintings, sculptures or frescoes. No one ever talks about other forms of art like dancing or theatre. Especially in the Indian society, this is seen more as a hobby or something to do along with your daily job. Its not considered something you can make a living out of. Yet, India is considered as one of the hubs of ancient culture. A culture that is now slowly dying thanks to not only the “cultural groupism” that is so prevalent in India but also the habit we have of pulling each other down. Continue reading

Just the Way You Are

img_1027In today’s day and age, I find that humans are not only losing their humanity but also their humility. It is my belief that all those people who seem to have forgotten how to ‘be human’, should adopt a pet. Now while this may seem silly, mundane or inconsequential at best to most of you, let me explain why this is possibly the best thing that will ever happen to you.
