I was in an odd depressed mood of no reason I could find. Maybe quite upset as well. A sudden lack of words and emotional blockage. A usual phenomenon seen in some snobbish two legged mammals. I too was caught with it. Couldn't get rid of that. Soon enough, I saw this smiling spectacled young… Continue reading Spectacled young old man.
I asked my kindergarten going brother, randomly a few questions. Out of which a question was ‘How are you ?’ He said firmly, ‘Fine, Thank You’ without a blink. അങ്ങനെ വെച്ചാൽ എന്താ? , I asked him next in our mother tongue, malayalam.

When the expected candidates were some hard core right wing leaders like L K Advani, Murali Manohar Joshy, the BJP played a master political stroke by… Continue reading The First Citizen of India
(This has few fictious elements too.. Not purely experience as the previous ones and not really nonsense either..but yes.. Silly it is) 20/12/2017 ‘30 minutes more’ announced the exam invigilator. I felt much relaxed hearing that. I was sure that I could finish the English language exam well before hand. As I couldn’t complete the… Continue reading Silly Nonsense #3
Standing on the alley under the orange sun-bright street-light beside the busy three lane highway, I felt something twinkling up in the sky. To my wonder, it was the stack of light of a half a centenary storeyed tower. I looked upon the sky but couldn't find even a natural twinkler despite it was night. … Continue reading The NIGHT-SKY
One a bitter August midnight, two brothers parted ways to remain in hostility for years to come. They fought each other to nab the paradise on Earth, Kashmir. They built missiles and nuclear weapons to swank each others' might. Basically very simple ego clashes lead to intense strife among these countries demarcated by Radcliffe line.… Continue reading The Indo-Pak Express
Jai Hind! What I am going to share is my concern. Recently, one of my friends (a hardcore RSS supporter) sent a video of an interview with a retired high court judge. He was trying to justify the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh , a rightwing organisation well known for their ethnocentric views and activities, also… Continue reading Gandhi.

I recently came over a few year old piece of news regarding the former prime minister and current president of the old ottoman.. Turkey..

Journalist Gauri Lankesh was coldbloodedly killed by some petrified men... "You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming" - Neruda

He once said that 'The true teachers are those who help us think for ourselves' Today I came over an article today regarding a quite contradictory speech by Shri. Mahesh Sharma, the Minister of Culture. It said ‘’ We must… Continue reading Uncritical Acceptance! Why ?
