Force vs Object

Some of the millions of my readers would know that I am a Comics Fan, and not only the adventures of our very own Chacha Chaudhary (not related to me) and Sabu , but of any super hero, villain, Star Wars or what have you.

What happens when an irresistible force meets an Unmovable object? I started thinking about this quote when I was watching The Dark Knight for the Nth time. 

Watching the Joker and Batman have a go at each other made me think about some more points: 
Who would win if Hulk and Superman fought each other?

Well in the case of Joker Vs Batman the good guy always wins. So we end up seeing Batman defeating the Joker in almost all of their encounters. 

But when it comes to Superman Vs Hulk. Both are Heroes. Both have super strength. But Hulk has the advantage of not having any of the morals of Superman and not caring about the collateral damage which he dishes out in his fight.

On the other hands Superman is Super Smart as well, or at least smarter than the Dumb Hulk (Duhh..). So I guess that evens out the playing field a bit.

Anyways.. I really should get back to reading the absolutely humongous collection of the Star Wars comics which I have accumulated. So until the next time, May the force be with you.

Zenith to Nadir

Dissatisfaction, Displeasure, Discontent, Frustration, Irritation, Annoyance, Anger – Some of the names of more or less the same feeling which can make a person Sad, Angry, Miserable, Depressed, Dejected, Disheartened .

And the road that leads from one feeling to another can usually be very long or at times it is very short as well.

You persevere for many years to achieve your goal and after various failures it can lead to losing hope.

Or this feeling can be brought on at a moment’s notice when seeing someone or something, happy or sad, dreadful or beautiful. It can take you from the blissfulness of delight to the dearth of depression.

And it does not always take melancholy to induce depression or vice versa. Despair is also brought on at times from pleasure.

Another one of the unpredictable, volatile, fickle nuisances of the human psyche which we all hope to achieve control of one fine day

I had a dream

Good people of the world.

I just back from watching a movie with a weird story line, but a theme which I have been observing has been getting repeated in many different forms lately. Be it movies, books, TV Series etc. etc.

(Has anyone else noticed that I use really long sentences when I write, but again as usual. I DIGRESS)

So yes, getting back to what I was talking about, the theme which I am talking about is DREAMS. People doing amazing things in dreams, robbery, saving lives, escaping prisons, escaping worlds created by their own thoughts. Full on HIGH END drama. Stories where people die in dreams, people steal or implant ideas in dreams 
(Yes I know all of you know which movie that comes from. And as for those 349 of you who have been living under a rock and don’t know what I am talking about: Good for you)

I have written about couple of the weird dreams which I have had in the past, but nothing as weird or freaky as what they show in the movies. All I see are me fighting terrorists saving a US president from getting shot. Weird.

Now since I have used the Words, terrorists , US President and Shot in the same sentence do you think I am going to have secret service or CIA folks knocking on my door or NSA tracking my online activity..

Naah I am dreaming again..

Position of Power

No don't  be worried I am not going to be talking about Politics here. I am not a political person or support any parties etc etc. (More on that later)

Right now what I want to talk to you about is something not very different from what a political party does when they have a vast majority in a democracy. They can be fearless and implement their own policies without being scared of their allies withdrawing support from them.
(I know... I know I said I won't talk about politics and that's exactly what I am doing here)

But as all my faithful readers know I write in one shot, i.e. once I start typing about something/or nothing at all, I don't pause or stop in between in thinking what I am writing about or ponder about the direction my post is moving along. 
I laugh on the face of people who talk about the condition called Writer's Block.. (but again I digress)

So getting back on topic, What according to me is a Position of Power.
I would say when someone holds an authority over you, where YOU KNOW that (consciously or Sub-consciously) their action/re-action/words would put you in such a situation where you back down from your own beliefs , where you would act in such a manner where if it would have been left to you , you would never think think of doing something like that.

So whats the stimulus which produces such a reaction. In the case of political parties its the number of members of parliaments who threaten to withdraw support from the ruling party and in the case of us human beings, the stimulus is mostly always an emotional pull. 
I would not use the words Emotional BlackMail here as that's not always the case, Many a times the person in the position of power does not even realize the power they hold and that this power is being implemented on someone else. 
So no even though it seems obvious to many that the person in a Position of Power is some one who applies Emotional Atyachaar, I don't think so.

And beware if you contradict me, since I am the Alpha and I am the Omega, I am the dusk and I am the dawn...
I am the supreme creation on this planet and Beware you puny little human who dares to contradict me even in thought, I shall smite you with a fury the likes of which you have never seen before.

Up Up and Away !!


Sunday, April 3, 2011


DISCLAIMER: I know what Ignorance means, and in what context it needs to be used. But for this theory I use it in a non-contemporary way. If any of your grammar snobs out there have any issues please take it up with my lawyer.

Annoying’: A word defined as Causing vexation or irritation; troublesome.
Ignore’: Defined as Refuse to take notice of or acknowledge; disregard intentionally.

I am presenting here today my theory of the different levels and extremities of the combination of these two above words and how they interlink and lead to one other

So the least serious and most common appearance of this occurs when; the second word is usually a reaction as a direct action to the first word, i.e. when someone annoys/vexes/irritates you. You ignore that person.

But what happens when the reaction transpires without the action. When there is no annoyance but when you act as a consequence of past experiences and inhibitions. 
May be this can be called as a case of Chronic Ignorance
Come on you all know what I am talking about, especially in this era of eternal connectivity when the first thing you do in the morning is not brush your teeth but check your mail/Facebook.

I define Chronic Ignorance as the person who you ignore no matter the time or the day or the situation. For example: You have them on your Ignore/Hide/Appear Invisible as/Never appear as online options (Depending on the software you are using) and if your software/website doesn’t provide you with these options you go into Invisible Mode/Log-off yourself.

The millions and millions of female readers of my theories are right now nodding their head and saying to themselves ‘Do people not do this’. 
Now some of the guys might be surprised and enlightened at the same time by the above paragraph here as they have always been on the receiving end of this Chronic Ignorance.

Come on guys you know what I am talking about. Your School/College crush, your hot/cute colleague/neighbour , your X GF who always needs to go and complete some or the other obligation at the  exactly the same moment in time when you hurriedly login see that she is online and hastily send an enthusiastic  ‘Hieeeeeee !!!!!111 :D ’ when you see them online on your friend list
Please notice the use of the Smiley face and the fervent use of exclamation marks which always seem to end with a trail of 1s. (Damn !!!1 that Shift button)

And that brings me to the 3rd  and last scenario which I like to call Selective Ignorance. The one which is most prevalent around on the World Wide Web.
Again I apologize to my Female readers who already know what I am talking about, but I still need to go into details explaining the details and technicalities of this theory for the benefit of my brothers out there.

Ok So DUDEs listen up. The case of Selective Ignorance again starts up similarly to the case of Chronic Ignorance, i.e. with a ‘Hieeeeeee !!!!!111 :D ’ or in some cases you seeing a new photo/status update on some girls Facebook page and literally banging on your keyboard without even looking as to what you are typing and rushing your mouse pointer to click on the Like Button and proclaim that you are the first and the only one to like or comment something lame ass like ‘Awww… So Cute’ .. ‘You are looking very nice in that Saree’. And by the time you comment/like and the page refreshes your words usually are ‘WTF..’ as you see the 23 other comments and 47 likes creep up in the time it took you to click that like and comment.
(Well buddy what else did you expect. Face it, Every other high hormone guy out there had the same brilliant idea as you did)

And then the endless process to refresh the page to check if your comment has been replied to starts. You await for that ultimate reward where the Chick comments again: ‘@PutYourNameHere ..hehehe.. TY .. ? So sweet fo you' . But then you start realizing as you see the chicks comments come in one by one, where she is replying to all but you.

Sorry my Bewildered Brother, You have just become the victim of the most prevalent drill out there being defined by me as ‘Selective Ignorance’.
But now it doesn’t stop there, as there is a reaction by the guy to the action of Selective Ignorance. This reaction usually comprises of sending multiple Emails/Messages/SMSs/Tweets or whatever the young generation uses now a days. The prĂ©cis of all these above modes of communication is to gain an understanding as to the missing reply to the original comment.

Now by the time this takes place you have already lost it buddy and your case of Selective Ignorance is very well on its way to becoming a case of Chronic Ignorance.

FootNotes: Now my theory here generalises that the victims of these levels of Ignorance are usually the male of the Human Species and it’s caused by the Female, but that’s not always the case. 
It has been personally observed, experienced and noted by the writer that even the male of the species can act on along the lines of Selective or Chronic Ignorance.
And that too not only towards the female, but also towards their chaddi-buddies who always ask you for money or some other favors.

An extreme and prolonged case of Chronic Ignorance may lead to the creation of a Stalker (both male and female)

So finally to conclude: My dear brothers in arms. Go forth with this new found knowledge and try and think and check yourselves before you click on that Like button.
