AGILE

You are Agile until someone deciphers your technique, puts it in a process and delivers to the highest bidder. Then, you are just a competitor to everyone who bought your process. e.g. Facebook bought Instagram So rich people win, even with a little bit of wit. Unless you open source it, then it is in…

Evoke

The day is dry with faded insignia of a hot summer. Clouds are in the mood to pour, but holding on in fury. Crops are swinging in chaos. Wind is bleak and edgy. The scenery is a sad blues song. The heart skips a beat, but the mind refuses to accept defeat.  Rebellion is mostly…

Be yourself!

‘Be Yourself!” is being tossed around a lot these days! What people tend to forget is that even Adolf Hitler was being himself! But nowadays, all the humans in front of the camera suggest being oneself. It is the mantra of this generation and maybe a few more to come. Do not join the herd!…

Distant Friend

Distant Friend, I used to chitter chatter with you very often! But you just seem to be becoming the “Once in a Blue Moon” sorta thing! This abiotic commensalism seems to be losing its Essense! I have been lacking the sense of ideas mandatory for the spark of camaraderie accompanying your friendship! Welcome Back, My…

Writer’s Block – Absolute Denial!

I have not written in some time now. Whenever I tone my routine to sit down and write, I cannot think! and then I wander back to the daily quotidian tasks. Maybe I lost my capacitive stylus! Maybe I lost Interest! To ponder over what or who to blame for this unreasonable tragedy of sorts,…

Compromise, Maybe!

The length of the rope, which on one end has a stack of hope and the dark realm on the other, decides how long the balancing act is going to last. You do not remember exactly how you came this far with the longevity of balancing act, but you have been trying to balance it…

Please Yourself!

A lot of us may know the name “John Locke” from the famous TV series “Lost“. But that lot might not remember his character’s real name “Jeremy Bentham”. His character went through a lot of pain during his life before the plane crashed into the island where he found himself absolved…

Life Analogies

The confusion was as bewildered as the mid life crisis The fear was as scary as a mother with menopause The sorrow was as gloomy as every Sunday evening The light was as bright as the pre death hallucination, The violence was as bloody as the first period in a girl’s life, The darkness was…

DAY one

He looked around in confusion; everyone was a stranger! He was nervous, shaking a bit; his senses feared danger He did not enroll for this himself, he had not a clue Who were all these kids, why were they here out of the blue ! He sat down at a bench at the back, because…

Nothing in Abundance

Visionary, with a vision so scary Is it happening? Seems pretty damn fairy! Global warming is a hoax, it’s declared Cannot question the highest authority, people still dared The last of the coal that’s left Will be used coz we think that’s best Everything in abundance, we believe, The earth is infinite, it seems It’s…

Dominantly Powerful

About two years back in history, I saw the live stand up of my favorite comic then – Louie CK, when he came to Detroit. I was furious that he was wearing a suit, which was contrary to his philosophy of life and stand-up image (I was and am not sure if those two co-exist…

Loopholes

Almost everyone likes the short cut available with no legal, mental, physical or societal hassles! But, no short-cut ever created a loophole so clean that all these categories were satisfied and your conscious did not flex out even a little bit to accommodate any consequence whatsoever! Every one flexes their conscious to find loopholes or…

Self-Reflection

And, so, I sit down sometimes, just to STUDY myself. To gather the data of the conscious, sub-conscious and un-conscious. How much love and hate have I encountered? How much have I absorbed without reason? How much have I asked myself – Is this the most important thing to do right now? How much have…
