Random Thought! #39

Blamed of burning, the fire burns too. Fret you, fume you, and fight you. Complain, compare, and clash I do. Hard, harsh and hopeless, but every time i consume, me too.

Life is but a transverse wave!

Saturday I was up till late. It was a long night first spent correcting papers and then began the spell of queasiness and questioning. What is life? Where am I headed in life? What exactly do I want from it? And is it really as good as people make it out to be? I am…

Let’s get ‘Santa’mental!

A few days before Christmas I saw a reel on Instagram where a child asked his father if Santa was real. The father responded in the affirmative but could not give a convincing answer. The child then went to Alexa and asked if reindeer could fly and Alexa informed that reindeer could not fly. The…

Towards the Wall of Pride!

In June this year I had posted about ‘Windows‘ opening the doors for me and a friend wished me, “A wall of pride there next to the windows.” How prophetic! The mail which I had been awaiting for since November came in today and I woke up to Google welcoming me to the Google For…

Emerald City

Some time back a friend had wished for me that the straight-line finds me soon and the yellow brick roads lead to somewhere nice and not the Emerald City.

A Slice of My Past!

I got my house redone and painted in the month of March and most of the redundant things have been gotten rid of. But then, there are things which have nothing more than sentimental value and we tend to keep them for the simple reason that we cannot think of parting with them or throwing…

Peace, please!

One of Abhay’s cousins is an artist. She not only splashes colours around but also keeps spreading thoughts. To her a thought is a thought and art is art irrespective of the medium. Recently she started a kind of campaign on Instagram under the title ‘healingwiththedove’, a peace initiative. She shared a template bearing the…

Windows opened the doors for me!

Windows and I go back a long time, and I have been using it since my marriage in 1999. I started with Windows 97. I would go with my father in law and both of us would learn it together as Abhay had earned some training vouchers. Then we upgraded to Windows2000, then to Windows…
