Experiments with Reality

Solitude is frowned upon and eccentricism ridiculed.
It is a sad and sorry truth.
The society commands too much attention and adherance.
There is, however, a thick line between solitude and loneliness + eccentricism and dementia
I have called it a thick line, specifically, based on a view of those on the inside.
I am messing with these 2 concepts and my experiments with reality are indeed fruitful.

I hope that the thick line holds steady and does not turn into putty.
How hilarious would that be?
May be it would lead to my experiments with euthanasia

A walk through the masses

Gateway of India - 3rd Dec. 2008 - 1 week after the 'terrorists' attacked locations in Mumbai.
I wonder how many people knew the meaning of Vande Mataram when they were bellowing.
I wonder how many people threw litter/ garbage below them to beautify the roads while shouting ' Inqulab Zindabaad'
I wonder why they were saying 'Pakistan ko Phek Do'
I wonder if they stopped bribing people and actually started changing the system.
I wonder why they said 'We want action!!' - when the govt. cannot provide for:
1. Good Legal enforcement
2. Continuous Electricity nationally
3. Well paved roads and greater connectivity
4. Continuous Water Supply
5. Clean drinking water
6. Enough toilets
7. Enough clean toilets
8. Meaningful Literacy programmes
9. Good Law enforcement ( O ! Did I mention that already?)

And they want action - - what a laugh riot.
They left the streets, went and ate at a street corner, littered some more, spit some more, cribbed some more and bad mouthed the 'scoundrel politicians'. They are really hilarious!!

Yours Sincerely,

Human Behavior

Human behavior is perplexing.
There is a need to inquire about another person's loss - sometimes because you really care
And sometimes it is a moral and a social responsibility.
You do not want to be known as a person who did not care.
Then again, you could not care less for so many people.

Bringing me to my constant conclusion.
Life is aimless and most things are inconsequential.
Reevaluation is required from time to time because your course always needs to be modified.
