The Effects Of Isolation From Nature

About a month ago, I noticed my cat behave in a very unusual manner for a set of few days. Usually my pet cat sleeps and eats at my place and then goes down in my building's huge playground to play or run or do whatever else a normal cat does. So it spent approximately half the day inside my home and the rest in the playground. But suddenly one day, the cat decided to spend more than usual time at my home sleeping. We were obviously happy because we felt that the cat enjoys spending time at the home and enjoys it in here so it has decided to bestow us with more of its presence. But by the next day and the day after that, this unusual habit got me worried. Firstly, the cat spent over twenty hours a day inside, which isn't normal for animals. Secondly, I noticed a sad and dragged down look on its otherwise bright and cheerful face. I couldn't figure out whether my cat looked sick because it stayed in home all day or whether it stayed home because it was not feeling well.

Patriotism Is A Narrow-Minded Concept

We pick up our core values and perspectives on life from our surroundings and the people around us. One of the major ideas that gets passed on from generation to generation and gets deep rooted in our minds is: "Patriotism - One must love and sacrifice for his country no matter what and if one refuses to do so, he is a traitor and someone so disgusting that he should be looked down upon". And just like all the other societal values, this one too is stuffed into our brains. Here is a more detailed explanation on why one must question the notions of patriotism.

How To Undo The Effect Of Blogging On Your Mind

I have been writing blog posts more regularly lately than ever before and I notice a certain difference in the way I look at the things around me as well as at the thought processes going on in my mind. It seems as if a certain bloghole has been created in mind and it is sucking me in, in a similar manner that a blackhole sucks in every matter that exists in a space near it.

The Transition From Personal Diaries To Blogs

With tons of memes floating around the internet, I had a sudden idea to create exactly this one meme few days ago. I used one of the meme generating tools online to add text to the two photos then fused them together on paint. Here have a look!

I Hate Giving And Receiving Gifts.

Generally, attending birthdays or visiting guests without gifting a beautifully wrapped box of something is considered insensitive and rude. Although the age old gift giving tradition is slowly diminishing, it still exists to a huge extent. Irrespective of who or how special the occasion is, I don't mind saying, "Sorry, I don't give gifts and please I don't accept gifts either" to anyone and here are the reason why.

Twitter Becomes A Mess After Followers Rise

It is no secret that social media sites help garner huge audience for the blog. So I ended up creating a facebook and a twitter page for my blog. All was well in the beginning as I followed few users and they followed me back on twitter. But as the number of people I followed increased the whole thing turned to a complete mess and my plan of attracting the twitter audience to my blog resulted into plain waste of time.

The Purpose Of Life? Ans: Pleasure!

Every single one of us has pondered over questions like, 'What is the purpose of life?', 'What is the meaning of life?' or 'What are we doing here on Earth?', at some point of time in our lives and we have reverted to searching the answers to the purpose of life through heaps of theories and opinions offered by various philosophers, poets, spiritualists, self-help preachers and the likes. I tried doing the same too but I was not satisfied with their answers and opinions. So although it took me a while to find an definite answer to the age old million dollar question, I guess I have it figured out at least for now.

I Live In A Generation Of Pleasure Pursuers

There are few folks who are able to find faults and errors in almost everything and when the topic steers to the "my generation, your generation" talk, one can find an abundance of such irritating folks. They will have plenty of reasons as to why the generations following theirs have messed up everything and how we lack the quality life they experienced. In short how we completely messed up the process of evolution and are totally worthless now. But I somehow disagree in this blatant non-sense that is passed on time after time again.

Make A Bucket List!

The reality TV show "The Buried Life" consists of four guys trying to complete a list of hundred things to do. The show inspired me to make a simple bucket list which comprises of to-do tasks that doesn't require me to leave my city, work or spend exuberant amount of money or time on it.

Why I Dont Read The Newspapers Anymore

The paper boy delivers not one, not two but four of the best newspapers in my city, to our home every single day. My dad spends approximately an hour skimming through the newspapers and reading the articles before he proceeds on with his day. Whereas I detest the newspaper from the core of my heart and haven't read a newspaper since years now and here is the reason for it.

Internet Offers 15% Pleasure Of Reality

I swiftly delete my complete browsing history and close half a dozen tabs on the browser with one click on the red cross button on the top right corner of the browser window. I slowly get up from my throne and stretch and flex my muscles a bit, probably sore from sitting for past 3 hours in front of the computer. As I drink some water to re-hydrate myself, I start feeling weird.

A List Of Really Funny Stand-up Comedies I Saw Recently!

I started watching standing comedy on youtube over a year ago so I am not even close to being a critic about the various performances that I saw. But I've found few clips that are so funny that I keep watching them over and over again and they still crack me up every single time! So here is a list of some really funny stand-up comedy clips I saw on youtube recently.

I Start Posting On My Blog Again!

I created this blog around 6 months ago and rock music being my prime interest in life then (as it still is now), I decided to write about music, bands, the underground rock music scene, and bunch of other stuff.
