I MAY be in the process of being swin(e)dled (out of my senses?)!

So(w) among other thoughts hogging my mind , the one bo(a)ring question was:

What would be the ramifications on economic structure and society, if it was mandated globally with universal top approval ratings ,that for the next 25 years, those whose net worth (as per current valuations) was above USD 2 million and growing, would be required to be progenitors of a minimum of 3 and the "lesser" mortals RESTRICTED to one or none?????

OINK!! :-)

"Does'nt it seem just everybody shouts at each other nowadays?

I think its because conflict is drama. Drama is entertaining and entertainment is marketable!

Finding consensus and common ground is dull. Nobody wants to watch a civilized discussion that acknowledges ambiguity and complexity. We want to see fireworks!

We want the sense of solidarity and identity that comes from having out interests narrowed and exploited by like-minded zealots! Talk show hosts. Political candidates, news programs .All become successful by reducing debates to the level of shouted rage.

Nothing gets solved. But we're all entertained."

India is a democratic country in its truest sense.....

we allow mercs, beemers, porshes, nanos, marutis ,

2 wheelers, 3 wheelers,

2 legged mammals,

bullock carts,

cows, goats, sheep, buffaloes, dogs,

statues, mini shrines......

equal space on the roads.

Apologies if I have missed out any category.

I recently came across this exquisite Native American Proverb.....


I have been thinking past days.....

Are rainbows overrated?

Is the human soul so frail that it craves for that silver lining around a dark cloud?

Or is it etched on the human psyche to anticipate
the sun bringing out the rainbow after a rainstorm?

Do we need crutches to propel ourselves forward?

Should we reject the old adage.."Its always darkest before dawn"?

And prepare ourselves
for the new reality...."Its darkest before pitch black"?

Or I am in a dark mood and the sun will soon come shining through and lift the clouds? :-)

Today it finally dawned upon me after so many years....
a fine print rider which accompanies
every Indian drivers licence
every Indian motor registration:
"You are entitled to stop your vehicle
in the middle of any 2 way narrow road
for upwards of 5 minutes
have your private conversation
with any citizen of India
who may be a pedestrian or a fellow motorist"

Watching out of my window

a fledgling hawk (I live by the river side)

learning to spread its wings…….

the tentative wing flaps,

overtures of movements,

letting the air pockets guide it,

sometimes steering, gliding,

then soaring up towards the sun……

the exhilaration of first flight...

seen this before,never fails to fascinate!!

The universe is expanding,there is evidence of the existence of a parallel universe.

Minds are contracting, there is evidence of the lack of coexistence with a parallel mindset!

What a contradiction!!!

“I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.”

So how do I switch off my consciousness or my sneezing???

osmosis is a gradual,

often unconscious process of assimilation

or absorption,

then can reverse osmosis

fix degenerate minds???
