Try being my Critic!

I am a web developer. Yes, I am. People say, it is not a designation worth mentioning or a job not worth doing. Well my reply to them is “It is a designation with a job that requires Imagination and creativity that YOU along with YOUR WHOLE INTELLECTUAL CONSORTIUM is not capable of making to in this lifetime”. This post is not to humiliate anyone who belongs to this group nor is it to prove my wisdom. It is also not targeted towards any of my college/school teacher/classmates who ,in a way, tried to pull me, my imagination and my aptitude in this particular discipline down by saying that “Anyone CAN make a website”. If you have ever been subjected to such mental exploitation, continue reading as you may feel a little better. If you have been the reason of this oppression…… BURN IN HELL, but before that, read this post.

Well, now that you know the objective of this post and the target audience I shall get on with it. I was born with average intelligence. Yes I was. But then, who isn’t? Every individual is born with average intelligence. Yes, even you. What? Did you feel offended? Oh, I am so not sorry, because you are. If you still think that you are extra ordinary, and consider yourself high born with some talent like no other, well wait, don’t release your fury upon me yet, and think for a moment. Does a score of 95+ out of 100 makes you the “WEE CHILD” ? If yes, then go to an empty room, dim the lights and lie down making no noise and movement until help arrives. This first kind of fault-finders are mostly withing 100 yards if you are in school or college. I have many friends who behave this way. They try their best to raise themselves above me and call me dwarf, but in that attempt they fall on their ass. One of the Greatest mentor in my life once told me that if someone ever tries to pull you down, use the INSULTING FINGER. So to this kind of nitpickers I let my finger do the talking.

Knowledge is an uncountable entity.  You cannot find  a fraction of your intellect vs that the world possess. Well this is because knowledge is not a measurable quantity. Now, before you F-Bomb me and comment “What is the purpose of tests?” read on. Examinations are a way to testify that you actually possess the  qualities you claim to. It is merely a test of what you actually know vs what you assert to. So if you are smart in a field, you still are “SMART IN THAT PARTICULAR BRANCH OF STUDY”. Not in every domain. Exactly like me, you too are an average kid.

Now, coming to a the people who Say “Anyone can build a website”. Yes anybody can, if they learn how to. But could you? Did anyone else realize that there is a difference of possibility between the word Can and Could. Nonetheless this is a group of people who will tell you that you own a few qualities that are very easy to acquire yet so meaningless that they themselves did not waste their time on it. My advice to you for such people: Don’t give a shit about what they say. Instead write a post to humiliate them among global public. This ought to give you more satisfaction that bombarding them in personal.

There in-fact is a third group of critics who will criticize you without knowing why. Their lack of knowledge in your field of expertise will make you doubt your knowledge in the same. Don’t fall for that. These people will pretend to know everything about everything, and yet they will successfully fail to succeed at anything. These pretentious little brats will try to relate everything that you know to something that they did, happened with them or are currently doing. Avoid them mentally. Yes mentally, physical avoidance might not be possible sometimes so abstain them mentally.

Now moving on to the final group of critics who should be the one that matters to you. Your parents, your closest friends, your wisest teachers. They never attack your ego or your honor. They go after your defeat with the motive of turning them to your victory.  They make you fly high without falling on your face. And they always love you and would support you in anything. Only you’ve got to show them that this is what you love to do. Stay close to such people. I like to call such people my forte.

Do not befriend people who praise you unconditionally yet never point out a single mistake. Your seriously are not perfect, because if you are then you are non-existent. True friends will always praise you at your good and condemn your wrong.  Their criticism will not be with the purpose to demotivate or insult you but with the hope that you will realize that you are wrong. They other group of friends are your biggest foes. Their criticism will be with the rationale of breaking you from a few inches inside. Don’t take it seriously. As someone once said that

one always has fewer weaknesses that one’s critics claim.

Feminism Unleashed.

Yes, women too deserve equal rights and freedom.

THE OBSESSIVE WRITER

Long walks on a deserted street in the dark. As fun as that sounds, dangerous is the go to word to be describe it lately.
Hell Yea!

It’s time for some seriously due feminism.

I have a curfew of 6 PM. I’m not even allowed to go to school by myself. I rarely get to hang out with my friends, and when I do, it’s at the most closely located pizza joint. You know why? Because I am a GIRL.

People have asked this question over endless eons, and I’m going to as well, again!

How is this fair?

As expected, you’ll say, no, it’s not! And I’m jus wondering here. How does that help me? Or any other girl? All the posts by the “understanding” men out there who think the undermining of the feminine gender should come to an end and how men should use their stronger physique…

Fear!

Fear is a chain reaction in brain that starts with a stressful stimulus and ends with release of chemicals that pumps up your heart rate and fires up your breathing, making you sweat and increases your attention to your surroundings. But is this all we know about fear? You must have felt this itch in your stomach when you are alone in a room watching a horror movie with doors shut and lights dimmed and all you can hear is your own breathing when the TV is quiet, and suddenly the door slams to the wall and you gasp in fear only to realize that it was wind and no one tried to break in you room. Can sudden slam of door make you so frightened when you are siting in a room full of people? I doubt that. Then the definition of fear misses a vital link. The knowledge of your surroundings.

Our mind is very smart. Well at-least smarter than we think it is. While you were involved in watching the movie consciously, your mind was subconsciously aware of your surroundings. It was ,subconsciously, waiting for any unexpected event (to your conscious) and raise the alarm to your conscious. So the surroundings played a great deal in throwing you into panic instantly. Take another example of your subconscious messing with your head. You sometimes wake up from a dream sweating and realizing what a dreadful dream it was. Yes, you were scared your pants off by a DREAM.

However it is not always your subconscious that gets you high, sometimes there are things we fear consciously. A lot of these things that frighten you are not really things to get frightened of. You fear them because you are told to do so. Think for example, Rejection. I am sure you fear rejection, in love maybe or while being interviewed. But the biggest fear seems to be the Rejection by society. Really? Is that really worth all that rising blood pressure? Standing on a stage, in front of hundred people and speaking a few words might have given you goose bumps. It might still. But is it really that scary?

Some of you are appalled with the constant challenge your life spits at you and in desperation you “WHY ME” bomb yourself and the all mighty and you panic. Remember in the face of crises, fear is useless Yes it is. Fear is perfect, the most volatile fuel to defeat. But the same propellant can be use to shoot for victory if added in right quantity and at the right moment.It is the unknown we fear, replace it with curiosity instead. After all, you cannot fear something forever without knowing what it really is. It maybe a facade.

Then there is Death. Though some of us claim to be gutsy, we all fear it. Death is certain and meaning less (James Moriarty). Everyone has to die, but no one expects or anticipates it. That is why we fear it because it is sudden and our conscious did not had the slightest idea that it was about to be shut forever. That’s when it bleed Adrenalin , its last ray of hope for survival. That’s maybe the time when one may get to realize the fear of death.

Fear is a story you tell yourself continuously until it becomes a mind killer. It becomes a little death and brings total destruction. Fear is a liar. It lies to you the reality of the situation. It numbs your senses and makes your thought process dizzy. Fear has no logic. That is why is looks to frightening. Yes fear itself is phobia. Something like phobophobia. The only way to escape the hold fear has on us is to feed your mind with truth. It is the only way people conquer it. Have faith in your senses and capabilities because there is nothing to fear from yourself.

A letter to SUN

Dear Sun,

Hello. I am writing from Earth, one of your 4.5 billion years old daughter. Although you are 149,600,000 KM away from us, we can still feel the warmth of your love each day ever since our existence. Well some people get more of you than others but that’s not your fault, as with time our mother got old and she cannot stand straight up like she used to. It is summer here in Southern Asia.

Lately, you have been acting a bit weird. Many of us have felt unbearably hot vibes coming from you. Is it something wrong we did? Or is it just the usual teenage hormonal burst you are experiencing? I hope it is the latter. I agree we ourselves haven’t been so kind to our mother, maybe that is the reason you are so upset about. Everything is changing now. It rain now when it should be sunny out there, it is burning hot when it should be mildly cold.
People wearing white coats here tell us that we are headed for an ice age despite you glowing like this for several thousand lac years. If something like that happens, why dont you save your energy now and use it then?

Everything is advancing here at a very fast rate. But it seems that our mother pays all the bills to that. She always has been generous. White coats once told us that the black smoke our vehicles exhales out is responsible for keeping your warmth on earth. But, recently its amount has increased substantially and uncontrollably trapping more of you. This of course does not seems good. It is shrinking the white mountains and diluting the blue oceans.

Our race is selfish. Yes I admit, all the problems that we face are the result of our own actions. You , like a father, always ,along with mother, supported our existence. We , on other hand, have always take you for granted. I realize now that we have been a burden on you for the past few centuries. But I hope that like all parents, you will never give up on us though we might already have given up on you.

Game Theory

Real life is the game that – literally – everyone is playing

Life ,as it appears , is a game played by everyone at every moment. It is like one of those endless run games where one runs in a particular direction avoiding obstacles. The goal , however, i realized by a few people and conquered by fewer.

I’ve gotta run because people tell me to do so.

It seems rather pointless to head for the same direction as everybody else. But nonetheless, we still play the game.

The game starts when we are young. It is when we learn the rules of this game. We are overflowing with our zeal and have plenty of energy. At this moment of time, we get to choose a character while the bigger deals like job,car,house,lover etc are still to be unlocked.

the_avengers_by_thedurrrrian-d55trk8

 

Our experience is still low and a few skill set  also remains locked. It is for us to unlock them. And as we grow, we evolve these traits continuously. One of them being how to obey. Sometimes you may find your own mind going against you, for example it is always hard to resist the temptation to come online in exams. DON’T PANIC. This isn’t a bug in you source code.

Once you master your mind, try playing with others’. You will feel a sudden urge to find a partner. This task is ,in itself, a mini game.  You will require heavy artillery because this level may be close to world war.You may be rejected by several other players. This ,however, is normal, may diminish your willpower. Try to maintain a minimum threshold of it for other tasks. You may be allowed multiple lives at this level, you might just want to play smart to achieve the best lover. 

Once you complete this level, you will find difficulty increased exponentially. With greater responsibilities and much more expectation you may find it difficult to achieve your ultimate goal. But keep your eye on the ultimate prize as this was just a auxiliary mission that you’ve completed. Meanwhile, this level also unlocks several achievements like Happiness, Love and Headache.

Now, it is the time to earn. This is the most important level with almost unlimited upgrades and achievements.

The most important rule of money is never to borrow it, except for things that earn you more back.

Recurring deposits like education may act as a good investment scheme with substantially larger returns for longer period of time.

As time passes you will find your energy reserve depleted and slower recovery. These may be symptoms of aging. Check for other symptoms like Hearing problem, walking problem, health issues etc. If the reports are positive, it may be time for you to retire and save your energy. All players die after about 29,000 days, or 80 years. If your stats and skills are good, you might last a little longer.

Remember there are no cheat codes to this game. That’s why your strategy is important. Because by the time most of us have figured life out, we’ve used up too much of the best parts.

Now you’d best get playing.

(Contd.) 7 days off from life

Burn Them All

I left Mumbai, before the city was asleep, and I was thinking why couldn’t the roads be at 12 noon in Mumbai as well as in Delhi as they were at 4 AM. Nevertheless, I was off from Mumbai and reached Goa in about 3 hours. 1 hour flight and 2 hours in checking in at airport. Yes it took 2 hours to check in and get through security.

Meanwhile, I was about to experience the most captivating sunrise of my whole life from 7000 feet. Probably the most enchanting 10 minutes of my life.

Goa was relatively clean, green and a lot less dense.Yes population of Goa is 1.458 million and Mumbai is 20.7 million. (This is not me but wiki speaking). I remember, while landing at Mumbai, I could see a forest of ghetto(slums) and  we flew just a few hundred meters over them. But Goa was poles apart from that.

While driving down…

Goa was relatively clean, green and a lot less dense.Yes population of Goa is 1.458 million and Mumbai is 20.7 million. (This is not me but wiki speaking). I remember, while landing at Mumbai, I could see a forest of ghetto(slums) and  we flew just a few hundred meters over them. But Goa was poles apart from that.

While driving down from Airport to the city, it felt a lot better and HOT .( I mean that in literally 😐 ). It felt like 35 degrees outside at 8 in the morning. We were driving down the hills (yes, i was surprised too that there were hills in Goa) and I was sweating. It was quite the opposite weather I expected. We reached our hotel and I crashed in my room for a power nap.

We left for some sight seeing at 1 PM and It was this moment that I realized we need to keep in at this time of the day when it was blazing like a furnace. Yes, in Goa.

We first stopped at Dona Paula. The sun was still flaming  and hence we kept our visit here very brief, enough to capture the relevance of this place and the story behind it. It is  remembrance to two lovers(Dona Paula, Portuguese Viceroy’s daughter  and a Goa Fisher)  who chose to die rather being separated.

Though i was getting roasted , to what i generally call TANDORI CHICKEN , the place was so aesthetic that I managed to survive a few more minutes.

Next, we stopped by one of the beaches en route – Miramar Beach. It was a nice place, but as “The lord of light” was getting more clement upon us I suggested we spend the next hour sitting under a coconut tree , where it felt like a sudden 10 degree temperature drop, and then maybe cross the ocean of live coal because there was no way I was getting my feet sand baked. Hence, we spent the next hour with the wind in our hair and sand at our feet.

I accept that is very weird. 😀

Sitting idle is a very tiring. It wasn’t long when were famished.  So I , again being a life saver, suggested we utilize this reserve time. It was my second meal of the day ,after breakfast at hotel, and this probably was the best meal in the past 4 days. After the encounter with curries at Mumbai, this was a  scrumptious meal.

 

Kingfish Curry.

After this tremendously fulfilling bite, sun finally came down and it was time for some fun in water.

Next day was similar, with a visit to another local beach – Calangute beach. Learning from the past day, we decided to hit the roads at 4 in the afternoon this time so that we reach when it’s sunset. It was a lot pleasant and easy to survive the day this time.

Since the day we arrived at Goa, we were constantly reminded of visiting this amazing beach – Palolem beach with water so blue that one would be mesmerized. So we reserved the coming day  for this exotic visit, because it was 60 Km away from where we lodged ourselves and it would consume a whole day. Moreover, we did not had much to do here so this seemed like a good investment.

When we arrived at the said beach, my first reaction was ❓ where is the blue water? People said, it is high tide and to get into water that clear you either need to wait or go 2 KM inside ocean. 😐 World is full of deception.

Nonetheless, the place was way better than I explained. Well the sunset made it so. After having a snack and some water play, we left exhausted and drowsy. Once again, I crashed on the bed as we reached back, though my mind was not thnking about rest at the moment. It was occupied with the truth that it would be my last night in Goa and tomorrow I was to leave for home. It was the first time in 7 days that I did not want to go back to my more than abnormal life.
