A Lonely Bud

By Rahul, published on Aug 3, 2013

It was a Friday evening and the school fell into an odd silence, as all the children left as soon as the bell rang. Its weekend and the school won’t open till next Monday; the joy of the holidays filled the faces of the children and the teachers alike as they left the school grounds. A lean young man in a khaki shirt and dhoti’s was rushing through the corridors with a bundle of keys dangling in his hand, closing the windows and locking the doors of each classroom, his name was Appu and he was the school peon. It’s past 5 pm and he was in a hurry not because of the principle waiting in her... (more)

The Indian Way

By Rahul, published on Jul 27, 2013

One of the many things we Indians are good at is in blaming others, we always get irritated by others actions and are never concerned about how ours transpire to them. We like to live in a state of self denial of our own mistakes and flaws, projecting ourselves as the perfect human with explicit ethics and view the word through that shaded outlook, ‘a proper man living in an improper world, working hard, even fighting to correct it’ how more pathetic can it be.

We live in a country run by politicians and the rich, according to whom we all are totally ignorant fools, we don’t know how... (more)

M For Morality

By Rahul, published on Jul 13, 2013

What is been commonly projected as morality are mostly selfish beliefs by an individual or a cult to keep masses obedient. The cult can hide in many masks that of religion, god, nation, race or colour. If any of the former is referred as the key towards morality then it is clearly the worst disgrace humanity can ever have, because it is visible in plain sight how many animal species take care of their elderly and young ones, how they help and protect each other for survival. The same animals that are considered inferior to humans are capable of all these things and still some keep on insisting... (more)

Love, Life & My Crazy Thinking.

By Rahul, published on Jun 28, 2013

Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows. -Paulo Coelho.

Some are ready to give even their life in the name of Love, pity it’s so because I always thought of it as something meant to give people a long happy life rather than a sad premature end. Thinking that there is only one love in life is the biggest mistake one can ever make. Love is only an emotion like anger, hate or joy and so it should be understood as such. It is never above one’s own life, it is only a medium through which we seek for happiness in life. It is a selfish feeling, a feeling which... (more)

Feeling Good

By Rahul, published on Jun 16, 2013

Past events reel before me, often placing a smile on my face. Time and again some memories surface from the cranial depths and become the part of my present, creating an even more wonderful and cherishing new memory. Living life to me is like seeing a good movie in an old cine theater, laughing, crying and letting all my emotions fly into the hall's quarter darkness, unintentionally memorizing the best scenes and dialogues and now and then looking back at the projector room with curiosity, wondering "How the hell does that thing works". It feels good when I can see life through this window... (more)

A thought for Care

By Rahul, published on Jun 3, 2013

Valuing life and caring for it is one of the traits that have been planted into us some were along our evolutionary footsteps. Though we often ignore purposefully this involuntary desire to help each other, it remains there never the less and reminds us now and then what goodness we are capable of providing. In this present darkest phase of human evolution, were piece of paper and shiny metal is considered more valuable than life, the beacon of hope has been kept alive through the medical science. With the aid of technology and the dedication of countless minds whose acceptance of their evolutionary... (more)

The Super Man Club

By Rahul, published on May 25, 2013

There is nothing stupid in believing in Superman and starting a fan club for him. There is nothing funny in praising his courageous acts within the club and murmuring his heroic words again and again as if it’s true. But it gets funny when they point finger and laugh at someone from the Batman fan club and start competing with them to prove who the true hero is. And it gets stupid when they start threatening others to join the club who don't even like fiction, all these in the name of an imaginary character whose existence cannot be disproved like million other myths.

Fan clubs are increasing... (more)

Never Knew

By Rahul, published on May 18, 2013

Never knew myself,till I met you.

Never knew what trust meant,till I broke it.

Never knew I hated silence,till you chose it.

Never knew how I felt,till I lost you.

Never knew what winning was,till I failed.

Never knew what hope meant,till I lost it.

Never knew the mild breeze,

till life knocked the breath out of me.

Never knew the beauty of sunshine,

till the rain came by.

Never knew how easy it is to advice,

till I tried to follow.

Never knew how strong I am,

till I fought back.

Life is one lesson,... (more)

The Moral of the Story

By Rahul, published on May 9, 2013

Who influenced your life as a child the most, in my case it’s my grandmother. She is my mother’s mother and the times I spend with her in my childhood are very precious to me. Her stories are the ones that gave wings to my imagination and planted the seed of a story teller in me. Among these cherished childhood memories the most memorable are those when she told me stories from the Hindu epics while feeding me; the combination of rice and peas curry with ghee, the intriguing characters in the story and her convincing tone were one of the reasons for my roly-poly form back then.

She always... (more)

The Real Hero

By Rahul, published on Apr 23, 2013

I do love super heroes; in fact I am a big fan of many like the man of steel, the dark night and the web slinger. Their costumes, style and never ending desire to help others are more than enough traits one expects from a super hero. More than a fictional character build as a protector of law and order; they represent or even remain as an idol for the true values of humanity that most of us are only capable of thinking. Can a human being be a super hero, not necessarily in muscle and style but in values, can one uplift the conserved minds in his society by his own life as an example. There... (more)
