Riding two horses can sprain the ankled nerve

Faith and associated actions must draw one cart. If you follow a particular religion or cult, then do plunge into the associated activities. If you are a devout follower of a religious person, try to touch his / her shadow not feet, once in a while or emulate his actions- Who knows, it may exude some positive or cosmic effects. Like those who always dreamed of Mars would like to go there even if it is a one-way ticket. Of late, New Year festivities are associated with Santa Claus (though X'mas is seven days old) and gifts. Now the crux is that if faith is on one level and activities are on another.... Result - utter dissatisfaction. Like this man was a Hindu and professionally he made pots for hindu funerals. His wife would happily hand over ladoos to taste for Diwali and this man would sit hovering over a potter's wheel to make pots. Both inevitable but not satisfying.

Not a laughing matter

Mrs Patel an erstwhile neighbour, was puny in size but liked everything big and a glaring example being her giant-sized husband. To match her equation with him and to avoid public glare she wore bright sarees with big prints and ornaments that suit tribals (who, with due respect, are also earthly). A second peculiarity she loved to indulge in loud conversation with her husband. Once she paid a condolence visit to a neighbour. The occasion was solemn and silent. Twenty odd persons in one room to pathetically argue how did 'he' (the dead man) die? Mrs Patel makes a quiet entry and begins to ponder and look solemn, when suddenly she noticed her husband. Lo, she nudges her way towards him and speaks in loud whispers which sounded like "Cher's" rap( Cher does not rap). Oh, could I laugh no, could the others laugh- no.Soon one woman escorted Mrs Patel out to let fresh air change her thoughts and actions.Her demeanour looked like that of a lost soul in fragile surroundings.

Thoughts and actions if mutually opposed, spell disaster

Very down-to-earth examples are needless to elaborate, especially if they are politicians. We do come across such 'contrary' examples in life. A teacher and mother will display gentle behaviour at school but may be cantankerous or an argumentative mother at home. Now, don't wonder where war originated. Not in Belgium. A man may be an overfriendly boss in office but a difficult person at home. NO wonder such dissimilarities bring in over-indulgence like addiction to cannabis, sex, drinks or violence. We are all homo sapiens,  so that slight leaning towards animalism can be disastrous.

Fragile minds seek fragile pleasures

Whether one is in Maharashtra, Sikkim, West Bengal or Kerala(other states also included ), one would notice a watering hole at every half a kilometre and these dens nurture seeds of dismay, disaster or
discomfiture in society.In other words a fragile mind can dig a trench to shut out tension. Parsonic feelers cannot construct a firm outlook to life till one realises the perils of  leading an uncouth life. It is not advisable to be saintly and tolerant always but an effort could be made to pay heed to a balance in disposition ....Now or Never.

A lesbian friend (an acquaintance to me) visits the orphanage every month and donates gifts or clothes to overcome her quirky mental  disposition. So remember gays or lesbians all over the world are innocuous like rattle snakes.

A.E. beats A.I

There is an inexplicable AE growing within which has come as a consequence of pessimistic outlook or a goal-less life that can explode anytime. AE is Absurd Emptiness which surrounds you or anyone when there is nothing to look forward to and even if it did, of what avail is a natural question. This has been the outcome of some experiences one has witnessed of oneself or of others around us. It has been an awfully long time to think of one fulfilling moment (has not occurred in the recent past) that can shine as a star in the fabric of fate.

{I have briefly tried to offer a personal view on the haves and have nots in the gruelling struggle of life with a nascent prediction of future. However live today, tomorrow will take care of itself.}

On the other side are the unparalleled possibilities that surround the earth and its beings if a common network would cull the universe of intelligence in one computer. The intelligence of knowing facts/situations/assets/weaknesses of people all comp…

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…

The #MeToo Factor

Bravo!
The #MeToo factor is gaining pace in India. The fairer sex is getting a fair deal with timely punishment of perpetrators.
No more fairness cream or fair wages or alimony or striking a revenge for rape or even consensual sex. Sometimes marital rape also endorses views of ‘spouse’ torture, don’t ask me male or female spouse. All sexual transgressions are claiming headlines these days and now who is sex crazy the news giver? the victim or those middle aged/old men craving for news on sex? 
Whether it is a transgression of Human Rights on an infant, toddler, school girl, teenager or a sixty year old, Wow! all are making news.
Are we a sex-starved nation?
After the Harvey storm that ravaged the American coasts another Harvey Weinstein erupted like a Monster in Hollywood. Why he gave a new dimension to the casting couch. Victims – all old and ravaged! Ladies of all sizes, age and talents spoke of a ‘cruel’ man who must now go for rehabilitation for having encroached private space. These …
