WELCOME HOME TO SANITARIUM

Talking about life and living, Pope Paul VI had the following thoughts to share:"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying, Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows." Before we move on with the topic, I owe an apology to all my regular readers for going off on a hibernation and powering up after a gap. You, the reader, have been regular in your readings, your feedback, your comments and your brickbats as well. I, on the other hand haven't been as regular as you. All I can say is that sometimes an off is needed to contemplate over things surrounding our...

You will read, but not understand.You will understand, but not do.You will do, but not understand what you did.Does it make a difference?F?@k knows. Truth be told, I never had a good impression about this book when I first saw it. In fact, upon its arrival at my home, the book had to kept under the covers and only read when there was solitude, partly because of the eye-catching color and fonts on the cover page. In many Indian households, the F word is still held as a taboo by the families. I myself was criticized by my mother for reading such books which "play around with the minds of the youth and spoil them." However, as soon as I started reading the first page of the book and continued i...

Dion Boucicault once said that, "Men talk of killing time while time quietly kills them." [Tweet this Thought]. He did have a point when he said this but more than that he had enormous amount of foresight.  Why do I say foresight, you may ask?  That's simply because this single quote/thought holds true regardless of our race, nationality and is valid across various time periods. Time is an essential commodity in a human's life, however, the majority of us fail to efficiently utilize the time which we have on our hands. In keeping with the chaotic and busy lives of all of my readers out there, I'm presenting a short story to you. Ok, so how short is this story? 50 words to be precise and ...

Referring to the subject of constraints, Ronald Reagan once said that,"There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect." Yes, constraints are a way of life and no matter how hard we try, they always keep cropping up in the most unlikeliest of ways. Look around you, there are so many people in your lives who are creating constraints for you every single day. Your boss demands superior performance from you and for that you have to listen to loads of bantering and suffer the wrath of the boss's temperamental side. You're constrained from taking any action. Your clients want top notch delivery and they are ...

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Rebellion against Tyrants is obedience to God.” Profound words and history is witness to this fact. Whenever the levels of injustice, conspiracy, scams, fear and anger have gone up in a country and its citizens, it has always lead to uprisings and rebellions among the daring few. Sometimes, the very protectors of the country take up the task of rebellion, in order to safeguard the larger interest of the entire population. Such is the tale of the book RIP authored by Mukul Deva and not only is this a RIPping account of the Indian Government and its working but it also moves at a ripping pace as well. Here is a hands-on review of the book, RIP. The ...

And then God said, "Let there be Light" and there was light.  This quote is from the third verse of the Book of Genesis acts as the guiding principle for a team of designers from London, UK. According to statistics, over 1.5 Billion people in the World have no reliable access to electricity and as a result these people rely on biomass fuels such as kerosene. Kerosene not only causes lung cancer but also increases the carbon footprint.  The team of Martin  Riddiford and Jim Reeves have spent the past four years trying to find, research and refine the solution to the problem of electricity faced by these 1.5 Billion people. They have come up with Gravity Light, an innovative and l...

Do you have a garden at home? Ok, if not a garden, do you keep plants inside your house? Is watering those plants, a big pain in the neck for you? Scared to go on a long trip or vacation, fearing that your plants might die? Do you wish to take good care of the sacred Tulsi plant in your home but office and other commitments take up a lot of your time? If you answered yes to these questions more than a couple of times, then fear not, hope is within sight. The answer to your watering woes is pretty simple and consists of two words – Plant Link. I’m talking about Plant Link which is the ingenious new technology being developed in Illinois, USA. Plant Link is a system being generated by OSO...

Create electricity, just by walking to class, to the nearby shopping mall, to that famous tourist spot or to the sea-face. It really is true. In truth, this is the claim being raised by Laurence Kemball Cook and his team from London, United Kingdom. They've come up with a brand new clean and renewable technology solution called as Pavegen, which can harness power from your footsteps. Basically, Pavegen uses the kinetic energy generated from your footsteps and converts them into power and electricity which can be used to run power sockets for charging devices, lighting or learning displays for educational purposes. Currently, Pavegen is being implemented at schools in UK and US because of th...

Let's face it, a lot of us face this problem of forgetting to switch off the lights in the haste to leave from home. It could be leaving for office, for an interview, for your classes, for your date or for your outing with your friends but we are always in a rush to leave our homes to go outside. In all this haste, it is criminal to leave your lights switched on at home. Apart from the electricity bill at the end of the month, it isn't an eco-friendly option either. We can't be found guilty with such actions when actually we should be doing our bit to save the non-renewable sources of energy. So, what do we do then? That's the first question which comes to our minds and Phil Bosua and h...

Have you been pondering over this question for quite some time? Do you have a habit of forgetting important events of your life? The first birthday, the marriage ceremony, the first child, the first job party or the first salary. There are many occasions in one's life, however, we have practically no way of storing that memory (data) in some retrievable form. Agreed, that one can use a camera to click pictures or even to shoot videos but, frankly speaking, how many of us are able to capture the actual events or the emotions or feelings of people present in that event. Apart from the usual posing for pictures, nobody captures life on a minute's scale. In order to really capture the sentiment...

Before and after Shaving Morning after Christmas Eve She was sitting at the coffee shop, waiting for him to turn up. He was late, as usual and this wasn’t the first time either, she was accustomed to this annoying behavior of his. She was just about to get up when she heard the loud noise of music coming from outside and knew instantly that He had turned up finally. He always had the speakers on full volume all the time. She met him outside his car. He and his friends all smoked and despite her constant provoking he did not kick the habit. Not surprisingly, he believed in the philosophy of,“A friend with weed is a friend indeed” Christmas was just over and New Years Eve was just a coup...

Here's a beautiful song, Aicha, originally sung by Khaled in 1996 but which was later sung in 2003 by the Danish Band, Outlandish. This song has been sung in praise of a girl named Aicha.  In the current scenario and instances of rapes occurring in India at this moment, this song goes out as a tribute to all the women which one encounters in one's life. It's about time people learnt to respect their female counterparts. So sweet, so beautifulEveryday like a queen on her throneDon't nobody knows how she feelsAicha, Lady one day it will be realShe moves, she moves like a breezeI swear I can't get her out of my dreamsTo have her shining right here by my sideI'd sacrifice all them tears in m...

Cultivation Of CropsI just need this stage to be seen,We all need a pantomime to remind us what is real,Hold my eye and know what it means,Coz' I'm out of my mind.James Blunt had this to say in his song. 'Out of my mind'. Although, don't get carried away by the image along with the title of this post. I'm not talking about farming or crop cultivation over here, though we can learn a lot from farming but more on that later.  How many times times in a day or a week do you feel as if your mind is getting sluggish, your thoughts retracting and depression setting in? How many times do you feel the lack of creativity, imagination and vibrancy in your work?  In our daily lives, we fai...

Morpheus explaining Neo the truth about our World"What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. This is the world that you know. The world as it was at the end of the twentieth century. It exists now only as part of a neural-interactive simulation that we call the Matrix.You've been living in a dream world, Neo." We all remember these profound words which were spoken by Morpheus while explaining the truth to Neo in the cult-classic movie, The Matrix. The film was in a league of its own and created ripples across the masses when it came out in 19...

Imagine there's no heaven,it's easy of you try,No hell below us,above us only sky,Imagine all the people,Living for today...... Profound words from the song 'Imagine' written and sung by the legendary John Lennon who was and still is a symbol for peace. Checkout the complete lyrics of this song.  The recent rape case in Delhi brought to mind this very song as I pondered over the degrading status of humanity in this country. Too much has been written about it, too much has been discussed and too much has been said. Not only the Government but the people also have to take up individual responsibility of this situation at hand. Can people rise up to this occasion?  Here's a question to all ...

The Golden Gate Bridge in the state of California, USA connects the city of San Francisco to Marin County while beneath it, the San Francisco Bay opens up to the Pacific Ocean. It is considered to be one of the wonders of the modern world and has been featured in numerous Hollywood films. Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco A bridge is supposed to connect two land masses over a water body or rough terrain, that's the basic reason why a bridge is built. Sure, bridges are built to cover a difficult landscape or terrain which cannot be covered by other means, so, the only option is to bypass that stretch of terrain. That's a bit of geography for you. Alcatraz Island (The Rock)To see ...
