Fakism - Everything is Fake Except the Fundamental Threads that Tie all Living Beings.

Image
All worldly things stood meaningless 
The mother's words were of the almighty,
As it had meaning, power and persuasion
I had goosebumps and some wet eyelids 
My eardrums had received something familiar but unusual to my cognition...
I took the form of almighty And I did what I could,
Divided homo sapiens can further divide until they extinct,
Except for some fundamental threads, which are virgin to its core, that ties all living beings on the face of this earth (and maybe also other planets)

Grandparents: An Embodiment of Love and Teacher of Life Lessons

It is an unusual afternoon. Unusual because usually you do not get urge to write. It happens to every writer, even the accomplished ones. They called it 'writer block', it is nothing but an psychological excuse to not write.

This afternoon, I couldn't stop my thoughts flow down me through fingers to the keyboard and type it down on my space here.

Two incidents that had influence to this writing are my encounter with grandfather - grandson duo, one at a tea-samosa cafe and the other one at a road side. Both observations were a deep thought
provoking ones as they instigated my thoughts to reconnect with memories with my grandfather.

Befor they stood up to leave, the grandfather asked his gra…

The Burn Marks!

Image
The burn marks; Of hardwork and honesty,
Of passion and prejudice, The burn marks;
Of determination and dreams,
Of struggle and subjugation, The burn marks;
Of opportunities and oppression,
Of waiting and wars, The burn marks;
Of commitment and coercion,
Of courage and complaints, The burn marks;
Of capitalism and competition,
Of governance and goondaism, The burn marks,
The burn marks... Testimony of truth!!! ------
*this evening as I approached a street vendor selling Chinese food, I observed burn marks on his hand and face because of hot oil spill, I couldn't stop my thoughts about burn marks after that. 😒

When a Nation is Proud of its Potholes, We're all Stuck!

Image
Prologue: Written on a bumpy late evening travel from Mumbai to Mangaon, this piece is out of frustration and concern about the status of highways. I wonder why my thought choose satire to be the style for this writing. Read, Comment & Share.  ---- A recent survey by citizens of our country has confirmed that India ranked 1st in World Potholes Index. Apparently, tyre companies are lobbying with road contractors to build not so good roads. Also, there is a report which confirms potholes mafias operating during night with specially designed self-drive PotuPotu vehicles which suck out holes underneath as they run on  highways during heavy rains. 
Any politician or road contractor can avail the service by subscribing to the service of creating potholes.

Government is soon starting Potholes Cess in order to fund filling up the potholes. All NRI dentists specializing in tooth filling will be called to work on this. Government is also planning to create a new vigilance team called PIA - …
