Hiatus?

bomb blasts happened yesterday and today in blore and ahmdabad
i returned a few days ago from a famili get-to/vacation from out of India, where we met this guy who works for 15 months and travels for the next 12 and repeats, coz that is what he lieks to do. He has ony done 34 countries till now.

Just now i was talking to my local grocer while buying some lemons to try the new tequila, he was relating about the blasts he witnessed in Mulund and the macabre that was!

i realised that human lives are such local phenomenon. Only due to cognitive behaviour, and advancements our IQz are better now.
but still
our lives and very trivial
trivial enuff to be lost
lost in making ourselves in line with expectations of
the normal
of the PEOPLE/norms/
of those patterns which have been found common and set to normalise things

Not those spikes in patterns which have brought about all the changes in lives/technology and learnings
It is human
to live by and in
by and in
patterns

did u know that our brain stops processing
- sounds
-smells
- etc
because they are regular.
To minimise the load on the brain.

Question is ..
do u know what you are?
or want?
or u r still living under the noise.
noise to normalize our liefs!

I'm glad you took some time off. Hope it was nice.

I'm going in a while for 10 whole days of introspection. I'm not sure if it will be enough but how many of us can really say they know themselves? We live too fast, too soon and we're too busy. We're a strange generation. Computers and internets, internet businesses, tech and communication leaps.

Did you read in the newspaper that a email was sent out 5 minutes before the blast from an American couple's computer? They lived in the sanpada area. Whether they were connected to the blasts or their IP's were hacked is being investigated. I'm rambling but I purposefully stayed away from blogging about this. My friends and I discussed it, but honestly, I've lost words.

This is an yearly phenomenon now. They hit the financial and economic strongholds of the states above and below Maharashtra and I was mother sure we were next. I guess we're spared for now. No idea for how long. This is beginning to feel like Tel-Aviv.

Well let's just live, it's the only way to fight those who bring death. Or is it?

I don't know.

As an aside, you're tagged as I said on chat. Click Here and do the tag! It's a social experiment+shaking up things a bit+how does user experience differ+make it entertaining kinda thing. I want to see what you come up with!

Flags, boundaries, armies, Idiocracy

I am not sure if you have heard of the Movie Idiocracy 
But watching the Political news around me makes me wonder so many times... on how the equation of smart and dumb people in the world stands?

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

It is Sad

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…
