Should we give in to fads? (micro blog)

Firstly, what is a fad?

A fad is an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something.

For eg: fidget spinners, spiked hair, games like Pokemon Go and PUBG.

Fads are emmencely compelling to fall into. Like if your friend has a fidget spinner and there are 5 other people you know who have fidget spinners then it is really difficult to not buy a fidget spinner for your ownself.

But should we resist fads?

If you value your time then yes. Buying into something just because everyone else is while you don’t feel a need for it isn’t right according to me.

Sporting spiked hair because it’s the new cool while not taking care of your own identity is not right.

I’m so proud of the fact that I never even tried my hand at games like Pokemon Go and PUBG while there were so many around me caught up with them.

Fads are for people who have plenty of time and money to waste.

I don’t have plenty of either

Do you?

Should we go to college? (micro blog)

Before we answer this. Let us first answer-why do we go to college?

To gain knowledge, exposure, degree.

So firstly let’s talk about knowledge. Don’t you think the internet has far more amount of knowledge than any of your syllabus books. The problem here is most don’t know where to find the right knowledge on the internet cuz it’s so vast. I believe it would be better if we spend our time learning where to find information on the internet than to go to a place to listen to the very same people everyday.

Now exposure, I have seen that most high schoolers actually don’t know how to get exposure for their ownself, so they depend on college to do this for them. This I think colleges can handle a lot better than any individual.

Lastly degree (validation), the most important document in a student’s life. If I had an option I would simply buy a degree (tell me if you know someone). This is something only a college (or a dealer) can give you.

So these were the 3 main things for which one goes to college.

But the money, time, energy requirements of going to a college don’t do justice to what it has to offer.

If you ask me that would I like to go to a place where there are 1000s like me who are all being processed the same way to be converted to the same output.

Then I’m sorry I’m out.

Feminism or equalism (micro blog)

Firstly what’s feminism?

“The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.” This is what Google tells us.

But feminism has the word female inscribed in it. While what we seek is equality. So would it not be better if we call it equalism?

No and yes.

No, we should not call it equalism because it is the general notion that the female gender is the one which needs to be brought up to the level of male gender. So feminism as a word constantly reminds us that the female gender is the one which deserves to be be treated better.

Yes, we should call it equalism because feminism as a word ignores the male gender. It is less about equality and more about treating women better.

Well at times in the name of feminism, we expect men to leave their seat for a women (has happened to me). Now can’t a man be more tired than woman. Is it right if he is expected to leave his seat in the name of feminism. Why is it thought of as disrespectful if a man doesn’t offer a seat to a woman.

I believe “equalism” would be a lot better term to use. It would ensure that women are treated at par with men while not forgetting that men are humans too.

The intimate relationship between politicians and media houses (micro blog)

Ok let me ask you- “What’s the role of media?”

Your answer would look something like “To keep us informed”. Media does just that- it keeps you informed but what it also does is, it chooses what to tell you and what not to.

Media channels never miss a single PM rally (even if majority of his speech is just “bhaiyon behnoo”). Can’t we use this time productively and check if the people who’ve collected to listen to our PM are genuine or not.

Can’t we use this time to indulge in a constructive debate on an issue of national importance.

I don’t know how many of you have noticed this- news channels show less of news and more of ads. You know why this is so, because political parties don’t directly put money into media houses mouth.

They take the indirect approach. They pay companies supporting their propaganda, then these companies pay this huge money to media houses to buy ads on them. Now you know why Patanjali ads are all over the place.

This is the safe way of playing this dirty game. Noone gets caught. Everything is legal. Everyone is getting something- media houses get money and offer political parties publicity in exchange.

The only person who loses out in this whole process is you.

How to be un-understandable? (Micro blog)

Um this sounds interesting. Doesn’t it.

How can one be un-understandable?

There are 2 ways that I can think of-

1. You are genetically un-understandable or born un-understandable

2. You put in some effort to be un-understandable

The first one doesn’t need any explaination. Let’s talk about the second one. What kind of effort should one put to be un-understandable?

The answer- One should try to do things that are never expected out of them. By doing things that would take others by surprise.

Like stop talking to your best friend all of a sudden, without any reason.

This would make you un-understandable to your friend.

Sounds insane, right?

But that’s exactly our goal, to do illogical things.

Happy un-understandable life!

PS. I don’t endorse being un-understandable.

What came first? – hen/egg (micro blog)

In my opinion, the egg came first. But then how did this egg come into existence. Ah that’s so obvious, because of a hen. And how did this hen come into existence? Because of an egg.

So you get your answer-yes the egg came first 😂

Ok sorry, sarcasm aside

Let’s check some facts-

“So in a nutshell (or an eggshell, if you like), two birds that weren’t really chickens created a chicken egg, and hence, we have an answer: The egg came first, and then it hatched a chicken. Maybe the question we should be asking is: Which came first, the proto-chicken or the proto-chicken egg?” (Source- mnn.com)

Now you see, I was right

The egg came first

Love or hate (micro blog)

If you ask what do I seek? Love

If you ask what I love? Hate

What this means is I want you to love me but I’m more than fine if you hate me. I want you to love what I do, love what I stand for, basically every aspect of me.

But I love being hated too. Hate is stronger than love. It spreads faster than love. There are more people bitching about someone than there are people highlighting the good in these them.

Now if you ask me to choose 1 from the 2.

I’ll choose hate (wrt profession) as it’ll make more people get to know of what I’m . Although this will be negative publicity. But if I’m as good as I’m then I’m certain I’ll change their opinion.

Personally I ofcourse prefer love

So hate me or love me

I love you

Habits are more difficult to remove than to form (micro blog)

I always searched for ways to put in good habits into me. I even managed to pick up some good habits like writing one blog everyday. It isn’t easy to pick up and then keep up a habit.

But you know it’s even more difficult to remove a habit. Like I was obsessed with my pillow. I did not use any other pillow than mine. But now I figured out that it is better to sleep without a pillow.

So it’s been a few days that I’ve been trying to remove this habit of taking a pillow. I go to sleep without a pillow. But now it is really difficult for me to fall asleep.

More often than not, I take a pillow half way through the night. So as to ensure that I get the sufficient amount of sleep.

I don’t want to take a pillow but it is ridiculously difficult for me to sleep without a pillow.

So removing a habit is far more difficult than forming one.

What habit do you want to remove?

Letting go (micro blog)

It’s been quite a while that I’ve been thinking about this. When should I hold firm and when should I let go.

There are times when I get too attached to a person or thing that I never want to let them go.

But then I ask is myself- is holding firm actually the right thing to do or am I just being emotional about it.

Like my mum was about to throw off my old diary as it was all filled up. But little did she know that that diary has my thoughts, my feelings penned in them.

So I didn’t let her throw it off. But now I think I myself don’t open that diary anymore then why keep it. Why not let it go.

The diary must be feeling bored-sitting in cupboard for so long. It deserves to be opened. It needs to better know this world. It sure doesn’t want to be with me anymore.

So I’ve decided to let go of that diary. I know it will be difficult for me and for the diary even as now it will have to go through the rough process of recycling.

But I’m optimistic, at the end of all this it will again be converted to a new dairy.

I just hope it finds a writer as good as me.

Corruption is good (micro blog)

Whaaaat? Corruption is evil. How can corruption be good?

Well corruption is good to me. It is the easier and cheaper way out. Like I was about to get challaned for not wearing the seat belt. My father gave the cop ¼th of the challan amount and we were let off.

You see we saved money and time. I’m not advocating breaking rules. I’m just saying that curruption is the easier way out.

Like we needed to get permit to do construction in an unauthorised place, cops constantly kept annoying us but then we bribed them and no one said a word thereafter.

Ok so now that you already hate me for giving into corruption. You need to understand that even the politicians who handle our tax money are currupt.

So even if I paid the full challan then that money would most probably end in a politician’s mattress.

I see no wrong in spending our money wisely.

What is your opinion about corruption?
