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!  🙂

WRECK IT RALPH!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Easy Fix.”


Today’s Prompt: Write a post about any topic you wish, but make sure it ends with “And all was right in the world.”


“And all was right in the world“ is alright but Easy fix? How can we have a easy fixing solution For things to be right in the world ?!

I am going to deal with the “all was right in the world“ part of the prompt and not the easy fix part.

This prompt reminds me of the movie WRECK IT RALPH! You remember the plot? No? Let me give you a few clues.. Flix fix it! Rings a bell? No?! Any gamers here? We are heading nowhere..

Fix it felix is a game in which there exists two main characters no points for guessing.. the hero and the villian. The villian here is Ralph who smashes his huge hands on any building he can lay his hands on ( literally! ). And there is Felix who remarkablly fixes all the damaged objects with the help of a puny hammer. How can i forget the mob of citizens who never fail to yell “Fix it Felix“ in unison everytime the situations demands them to. I dont think they have a vocabulatry broader that this.

In the movie there is another character called glitch.. who everyone instantly finds adorable and cute. 🙂 The movie is about glitch helping Ralph and Ralph helping glitch in respective areas.

At the end Ralph turns out to be the hero. And people get to see the other better.. kinder side of the Wrecking Ralph. All the time Ralph trying to prove that he has what it takes to be a hero.

Apart from the fact that it was a fun watch. What i learnt from the movie was that there are going to be glitches in your life.. a ralph whose duty it is to wreck up your life.. a felix fix it who can unmistakebly fix each and everything the magnitude of damage is not a limiting attribute… and a fickle minded mob who dont know the real facts and care way to less about your emotions and life. It is upto us to choose the Felix fix it in our lives and keep away the wrecking Ralphs. But it is also important to realise that some glitches are bound to occur in our lives.. we have the option to let loose the Felix in Ralph.. pull ourselves out of miseries, help others in small ways and prove to no one but our own selves that we are the heroes of our lives… and all will be right in your world!

Fix it people !! 😉
