If your Life is Boring

Ok. I get it. True, sometimes Life is boring. When you have to do the same things on the same days in same ways, meet the same people in the same places, listen to the same music, watch the same shows, sleep with the same partner(!) Life does sometimes feel low. In such situations you have two broad choices. One is to quit and go back to your comfort zone(whatever may that be) or to get things arranged and start something to spice up life itself.

When Life gets boring, you need to remind yourself that it's much more than a word of four letters! - Useless Quote
  1. Start Blogging - You can do this. It is simple and a very rewarding experience. Apart from money (not much) it gives you self satisfaction. Blogger, Typepad and Wordpress are some common blogging platforms where you can start for free.
  2. Draw stuff - Remember the days when you would draw stupid things on the walls of your home and get spanked by your parents? Do something like that. No, I don't mean to tell you that you need to decorate the office walls. You can however keep a few crayons, pencils, water colors or whatever that suits your fancy and start sketching or painting something. 
  3. Hook yourself to some other hobby - Hobbies are great things to do to feel better. Some people collect stamps. Others draw. Some dance while others write. You can take a small piece of paper and write down what you like to do - without thinking hard. Write three points. These three could be a starting point. Try this one also - Discover a hobby!
  4. Have sex - Sex is super stress-buster. A lot of research has gone into this - to satiate our insatiable appetite for this obsession(and need). If you lose the interest to do this, consult a doctor. Pronto.
  5. Play Games Indoor and Outdoor - Playing games is a healthy exercise. There is no need for me to lecture on that. But even playing computer or other virtual games can be rewarding. At least they will take you to some virtual world where you can relive the Second World War or do some cool medieval magic.
  6. If nothing seems to be working - ..and you feel that you just don't feel like doing anything to improve your life, then you need a break. Go home. Stay for some days. Go for a vacation. If that is not an option, just go ahead to a psychiatrist. Often this mild depression may require some medication. A doctor will be able to help you on this.
Hope you find these useful. Don't forget to like this post and share it with friends. Thanks and good luck!

Republic of India's sustained discrimination of Hindus

Republic of India has been independent for over 70 years now. Ever since 1947, and particularly since 1950 many Governments have come and gone. The Constitution of India has been amended. By over 370 times and counting. The name of the nation has also changed. From the simple 'Republic of India' it was changed to the 'Secular Sovereign Socialist Democratic Republic of India' for reasons best known to the then ruling elites. Few policies have remained unchanged or unchallenged regardless of the different Governments, political parties, emergencies and so on.

That is the systematic institutional and legal discrimination of Hindus.

Sounds surprising?

And yes, BJP fanboys - you are just as guilty if not more. Let me explain why.

There are plenty of laws, rules and regulations that this marvellous Republic of ours has given us. Learning about the laws that govern our lives require us to take a Law degree. Literally. The Constitution that we are bound to live by is somethin…

Fallen - Based on a true story (almost)

A group of young guys had gathered around a lifeless body on the road. A minivan had just hit a girl and sped off. The girl bounced on the road and rolled around once and came to a stop. The rest of the girls on the street scattered. A couple of guys came to check on the girl. A crowd gathered and collected what little valuables she had left with her.

A girl saw it all from her second floor window on Sheil road, Liverpool. Natalie was aware of the hazards of what she used to do. She knew the roads were dangerous, especially at night. But then, day or night - she was never truly safe. Her escape was only in heroin. She did not dare to build a world of her own by her own means. She tried before. It never worked out. So she had transferred the responsibility to what society calls ‘substance’. Heroin gave her a cushion, her sleep and let her keep her sanity. Or so she used to think.

Natalie was alone. Her addiction was not. It came with dependence, depression, homelessness and rejection. He…

A Good Day

I have a beautiful small house in the hills. It is about 3 km from Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. It is not much. Probably calling it a cottage is stretching it too far. I have got a couple of bedrooms, a small drawing room cum kitchen where we dine as well. There is storage and a small garage that is mostly empty. I have got another small room with just a single bed and a study built on the first floor. It is just about ten feet by ten feet but it has got a retractable ceiling and a wall made of glass with the rest of the roof being something of a balcony. This is the place where I like to spend most of my time. x

In the front, there is a garden with some flowers in the front and trees lining the boundary wall. My mother has planted a few vegetables in the back that we regularly use in the kitchen. We mostly require only rice and eggs from the market.

A typical day starts with me waking up and going for a morning stroll. I often spend my nights in the room on the roof. So the first thing…
