Coffee with Rancour

The compulsive drinker of coffee does assimilate quite a good percentage of rancour. Especially if one is exposed to hostile weather conditions the caffeine content does induce a 'deviant' kick which to some is soothing to the 'other' some motivates to work (exercises muscles). There is no obvious stimulant for the brain as is imagined by some experts.

Honestly the three distinct types of coffee drinkers are either dull or over-excited.

Type A > Keeps prodding or plodding over a familiar work with rigour

Type B > Loves to smile and gush with idle chat with stunning expressions

Type C > a 'Zombie' who attains a morose look but likes the rumble in the tummy


Do I like the drink?

Since college days to my early years of marriage, coffee always stood out as a better option to other drinks. Well, tea, soft drinks, cocktails, mocktails etc were never so alluring. Hard drinks were avoided for the simple reason that they entail beastliness that is unforgivable. Gradually, the 'better option' loses lustre for the simple reason that it is taxing on the bladder. At least two litres of plain water is required to flush out coffee. No exaggeration it is proven that coffee creates this natural urge to consume water which does support dehydration, so best suited for tropical climate.

Thirst for coffee hardly quenches

I always felt that is an adult drink but when I turned to consume it in adulthood, it left only bitterness at the back of the tongue. How can something bitter be soothing? The coffee seeds in every sapling are the most demanding of plants - a waterprint study shows it requires 140 litres of water to bring one cup of coffee to your table! Besides the cool climate and slopy terrain this sapling consumes more gallons of water compared to its poor cousin - tea -  which consumes merely 35 litres of water. So, do you feel that excessive thirst after a good cup of coffee. That explains.

Say no to coffee ....you will feel better

Never has a day gone dissatisfied without coffee. It is almost a decade and a half without coffee and I do feel better. However, I do indulge in a cup or two of tea.

Reverting to the 'rancour' that is generated in coffee drinkers is well-observed and above all a dissipated longing that fills the gap when the drinker craves for that cup of 'rancour'.

Rancour or no, a piece of advice which should not run like water over a duck's back. Coffee is avoidable.

Genes cannot elude fame and success

Should I feel defeated, inferior, jealous or elated to speak of Vidhi (name changed), a Jain by birth, born to a middle class family from Haryana. She went to a government school but fought her way through student life with just one eye. Topped her school and sailed through college life in flying colours. Her congenital defect of being in frail health was due to an auto-immune disorder which was evident from her eye defect that could not be rectified. But before substantiating more details on this person, I must add some interesting information about genes that can affect or break a person’s hopes. Fame/ success cannot elude a person for his defective genes if the person is industrious and indomitably strong-willed.
Why this genetic destiny?
The following facts are excerpts from “The Gene - An Intimate History” by Siddharta Mukherjee, these are added to clarify the importance or lack of importance for genes but a field that needs to be studied in an evolving manner, as this branch of sc…

Cosmos, my mate is steady

Know then thyself , presume not God to scan;
The proper study of mankind is man.

I dare not say that I am in the ‘best’ frame of mind but this summer has affected my thought process. Is it because intake of food is reduced and liquids have usurped the digestive tract.
My acquaintances or friends are sparingly in contact via all modes of communication blame it on the sweating away of vital (?) emotions. My apparently feeble health has been treading a path towards that finite destination which may sound predictable and spiritual.  Destinations are drawing to a close or a dead-end too. But my travel list is still endless and I am ever willing to pack my bags and go on any journey to the desired destination. You can knock off the word ‘desired’ but travel does enrich.
She hardly travelled
Speaking of travel, the one person who considered ‘travelling’ an anathema, was my paternal grandmother who lived for almost 83 years.  She was a living encyclopaedia who read…

A change in political landscape

New Indian President


Electing a dalit President after being pitted against another dalit did not create a political maelstrom. Perhaps, this seemed to be the last straw on the camel’s back. A political evolution has a superficial gloss but does it really uplift the masses in the lowest rung of society? Overall we expect an erudite, accommodating President who will do good for all, true to the aspiration of Dr B R Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian constitution.

Ram Nath Kovind ,the new President  and more recently Mr.Venkiah Naidu was elected new vice-President are the new faces on the political landscape.

So much for a conveniently poised political picture painted for the highest office also drew a lot of flak from the opposition. The opposition is still rattled and clueless but will it only influence the secretly rich politicians to hide and play their cards less blatantly. We are heading for a heady battle of thoughts when politics is not so easy a game provided the players are…
