POST 2016

Yo people! 

Unlike many, I do not believe that the “About” page in a blog should remain the same. You change as time changes and so dies your personality. So why have the same description for your blog year after year? One year can sure bring about a number of changes in a persons character, living, thinking, habits and what not. Continue to read to find out what has changed and what hasn’t. 

Had an intership. Became a Btech grad. Have a tech job. 

I lost hope in democracy/humanity and gained lot of confidence in hacking after the USA election results were announced.

Last year i spent quite some time bringing myself back to being creative with colors on paper. You can see them here. Its not paint, its oil pastel. There is a difference. And i have an OCD about it. I have an OCD about a lot of things. Anyway, I used to paint before like paintbrush, palette, water, cloth and watercolors -in boxes, in tubes, in glass bottles, in plastic cases. Then i stopped painting. Didn’t do anything other than doodle on my notes now and the. Once, I tried getting back to painting, it was a disaster. Lets leave it at that.

Constantly swinging between “i will stick with hell nos and headphones” and “Let me be social”. W.r.t the former and later, i started the No earphone project. Its not going as good as i hoped it to. *Blimey! So much senseless jabbering all round me*

This one was kinda upsetting and uplifting at the same time. One fine december morning, my cute-little-tiny phone, that i used for 5 long years stopped working. I knew this was gonna come, it still made me sad. I mourned for few weeks, adjust maading with a simple barphone which had noisy ringtones. I was hoping to get the phone repaired. All in vain. Finally i bought a new phone. And its so awesome! Cause this phone is up-to-date with the latest technology, i get to stay connected with all my done-with-basic-degrees-and-now-we-are-scattered-all-over-India friends. I have started to text/bother/irritate the shit out of all my friends -when i am free 😬. Poor people. Warning: I don’t know if i will stop doing that.

Travelling is exhausting. So most of the days i sleep all through the night instead of being awake. I miss staying awake at night enjoying the silence and calm. I make up for it by getting up early in the morning. Its not the same.

Lot of moments last year came down to this : “There are two tragedies in life : one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.” – Oscar Wilde

Much of my time was spent in distraction: “Everything distracted me, but most of all myself.” -Patti Smith

This is me, post 2016.

As always.. this is.where.i.rant.

ME post 2015

Hi wanderlusters,

Unlike many I do not believe that the “About” page in a blog should remain the same. You change as time changes and so does your personality. So why have the same about description for your blog year after year? One year can sure bring about a number of changes in a persons character, living, thinking, habits and what not. Continue reading to find out what has changed and what hasn’t.

I am a silent ranter a.k.a Thinker, still a reader, my brain still harbors a music library, brand new Potterhead, feminist and a self proclaimed opposite of a dimwit 😉

If you have had a talk with me recently or anytime in the year 2015, you will find I have become extremely opinionated. Confused and lost too!

I have found that being confused can make a billion things crystal clear once you see both the sides of the same coin. So be confused! Things will eventually clear up.

Internship changed my perception on a zillion things. Its one thing i will never forget about the year 2015.

Also oil pastels are now my tools for artistic expression.

Around August-September last year I started watching poetry slams. The performances were beyond expectation. I had no clue there existed a medium to express your opinions and views.. spin out stories with hidden morals.. to reach out to a larger audience. The topics they speak on range from childhood, bullying to depression, feminism and social issues. Its called spoken word performances. I have become a fan of this medium of self-expression.

I have started to observe how very much I am inclined towards the study of law, international relations, social sciences and human psychology. (Seriously why am i doing an engineering course?)

My infatuation for law existed since I was a teenager but what intensified this further were Social injustices in the society and a TV show – “How to get away with murder“. Though the TV show deals with troubled life of a criminal lawyer the social injustice which the twisted judiciary system adheres to everywhere is appalling and needs to be changed.

My fight against a world where EVERYTHING is digital is getting tougher.

Everyone wants everything automated with minimum manual human interference. Some of the latest tech accomplishments have been a joke. There is now a machine that will fold your clothes.It takes more time than a kid would have taken to fold a shirt. So what? Its a machine so it will cost you thousands of dollars and whats more? U can’t see how it folds it.

Everyone wants to roam about on streets with a brightly lit screen casting a ghastly glow on the faces of their owners ignoring the natural shine of the sunlight or moonlight glow which casts beautiful lights in the sky and on everything around us.

A humanoid robot is one more thing i call junk.. like why on Earth would you want a humanoid robot?! They would crash if they had a sense of feeling called confusion! Apple’s Siri is a different level of non-sense.

I have the utmost respect for tech inventions that really help simplify our lives (I sincerely do) but not to an extent where we cease to stop interacting with humans and disrespect the traits that make us human. W.R.T this I recommend you watch a TV show called “Black mirror” and a movie “Exmachina”.

Those are more or less all the things that changed me and changed the way i handle/react to things.

As always..this blog is.where.i.rant.

Finally i strongly recommend you to – once in a while – BE CONFUSED!  🙂

ME

Hey there wanderlusters , 🙂

I am an  student, reader, music maniac and thinker.

Though i initially started this blog under the name “Travels of a wandering mind”.. i couldn’t blog regularly.. hopefully now i will..  🙂

This is my first blog and my attempt to organise my “thoughtlessness” into if not something productive, at least something to keep me from whiling away time.

I am not active on most of the “awesome” social networking platforms, My friends keep urging me to be a part of it. To bridge the communication gap between me and my friends from diffused locations as well as to keep them informed of the skills their crazy friend possesses. ( i highly doubt any of them even try stepping out of the networking sites and peep into my blog. Dear friends, if you ever do so please step forward leave a comment and a occasional “Hi“ or “You are crazy?!“ in the comments section. I would be happy to see you here.)

All of the poems and posts on this site are authored by me (Unless mentioned otherwise).

All other fellow bloggers let me know what you guys think about this “endeavour” of mine and feel free to leave your valuable thoughts in the comments section. 🙂
