When an Existentialist Meets a Rationalist (?)

Well..I finally got my full-fledged internet in place. And after all those offline drafts I had carefully preserved, I felt the need to write on a topic that’s been dominant in my head from 2 days now. I have been reading philosophy in a much more systematic manner from a couple of days or so….

Heavenly Himachal

The water splattered on sun tinted window. You are in for more, the time has just begun. The breeze I missed, the chill I despised. Reminded me of a familiarity I had left behind. Land Wandering isn’t being lost, Seek familiarity in unanticipated hugs, peaceful eyes. Go get lost, to find it’s soul. Water The…

The Late Goodbye!

Draft from 20th May 2013 I ran for 1.6 km in 15 min The rising sun, Greeted them both. The dew drop knew it was time To say the parting words. The leaf feigned strength It’s limp mind embracing the limp soul. Careful not to shudder, Mindful of the every passing second. But time had…

I Traveled for Food (Part 2)

Let me begin by saying how awesome was it to run in the rains a few hours ago! Well, continuing from last time – the weather was the complete opposite to this pleasant mild rainy weather when we landed in Chennai. On the top of that haggling with Autowallahs there – Mumbai had spoilt me…

I traveled for Food (Part 1)

Draft from 19th April I ran for 1.8 km in 15 mins The flab speaks for itself- for the love of food that is. This line comes to my head – My love for food exceeds my hate for snide remarks about it’s effects. Well, I don’t exactly fit in that category. I have never…

The Similarity in Extremes.

I ran for 1.5 km for 10 min Draft from 04/04/2013 A fatigue in nothingness, Similarity in randomness, The innocence of young, the inanity of old. The blush of new bride, A mother’s flush of pride. The shame of semi-clad poor, The brazenness of affluence. The malnutrition in a part of world The anorexia in…

Whatever you are, be a good one !

I ran for 1.5 kms in 10 mins Today was a very emotional day for me. As I prepare to leave Bangalore, the firsts of the last series has begun. Today I parted with my dear Ramalaxmi aunty. She was working in my second home for the past 2 years. The love she brought to…

So, you think you can choose?

I ran for 2.1 km for 15 min Now, There was this course which I had taken on Coursera called Irrational Behavior – Dan Airley – He is the world authority on behavioral economics. Fascinating 1st week of lectures. It’s these inter-disciplinary courses that really attract me. Rather than reading psychology, economics – Why no…

Wishlists – Places to travel

So for the purpose of the list – Let’s restrict this to top 4 ! 1. Bora Bora : The swimmer in me can’t wait any more to dive in the transparent seas and visit one of the most exotic lands in the world. Earning enough money to splurge on that trip is the every-day…

StereoMood

The lonliness of no cars littering the pathway The melancholy in the sound of birds The green is good And clean is god But isn’t the prospect of ascetic spirit sad? In a land w/o light In a land of drudged might Why wrong seems so right And end so near in sight Palms get…
