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!  🙂

Social?! o_O

Passing through portals,
Connecting to other mortals,
What is termed as normal,
Can at times turn brutal.

You might be at your nest,
Taking some rest,
It turns out to be quite a quest,
To not send a friend request.

There are ones who giggle,
Yet others who mingle,
You find some hard to juggle,
So you add them to a different circle.

In a world gone virtual,
Where everyone seems to be digital,
It hard to be vocal,
and still be social.
