Restless: Offering no physical or emotional rest; involving constant activity or motion.

Different people define “Home” in different ways. For some Home is where you are born and brought up. For others Home is where your parents, your loved ones live. No matter where they would be in the world. Home is always something they can come back to.

But there are some like me who consider home as “Where I am”. No matter which city, state, country I am in, home for me is the place I go back to at the end of the day. 
This leads to some very confusing scenarios quite often, when people ask: “So when are you going home?” and I answer.. maybe in another 30 minutes. 

They expect me to reply with a date/month of my next vacation when I would be going back to my family. But I end up telling them when I would be going back to the place which they consider as a house but I consider as “Home”.

11 years ago, during my first few days on the Internet, I had ended up creating an Id called “cosmic_wanderer” a random name chosen without thinking much. And I still continue to use this id over different sites/forums/social networks. It stuck with me. 

And I guess due to some reason it got stuck in my psyche as well.

Rainbow Bridge

On one side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Uncertain and Relative Food Objects

Shrijeet Roy Choudhary: Can someone please explain.. On an All-India-Level what is a Phulka, Roti,Chapathi and Paratha..

Every few 100 Kms the definition completely changes..

Priyanka Roy Chaudhury: This question coming from Google Baba Shrijeet Roy Choudhary?

Shrijeet Roy Choudhary: Coz there is no right answer..

So what you made is not a Phulka.. Its like Einstein's Theory of Relativity and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle combined into one object...

The name of the object you made is always uncertain and relative.

Life is awful because Dragons are extinct

print("Hello World!") 

It has been a long time since we last met, a lot has changed since then. 

  • The human race has progressed into what some of them assume is the year 2013. (Idiots).
  • Game of Thrones Season 4 is proving to be really Epic. 
  • I have started reading more of Ender's Adventures (Before the movie comes out this year and spoils everything).
  • I am working close to 12 hours everyday. (Resulting in this blog being neglected)
  • Winter is coming !! (The Aussie One, and not in Westeros)

But some other things remain the same, such as the ailments of the heart. So when one of my friends pinged me on IM today with a question:
(6:33:54 PM) Korean Friend: why is life soo swfulll
(6:33:58 PM) Korean Friend: awfulll
(6:33:59 PM) Korean Friend: *

(6:34:13 PM) Roy: All because Dragons have gone extinct
(6:34:20 PM) Roy: Scientifically Proven

I blurted out a random response without thinking (as usual). But then this response got me thinking, as to how (if I wanted to) would go about proving this wild response.

So here goes nothing:

The world as we know it today is driven by data, statistics, logic and intelligence.

We are all so engrossed in our small/big devices with screens trying to stay connected to the world, trying to find new forms of entertainment that we are losing out on the greatest source of entertainment that most of us carry with us all the time: "Our Imagination".

There is very little room left in the modern world for wild imagination, flights of fancy and wishful thinking.
Example: If I want to bunk office tomorrow (being a Monday), I would not be able to make an excuse such as...err.. my Dragon had a cold so I took him to the vet.

Or if I get late to an appointment: "Sorry, but there was a lot of traffic on the Dragon Freeway , so I had to fly all the way around Castle Black."

If I did give such explanations I think I would then be able to permanently "Swipe-Out"  from work and "Swipe-Into" a mental institution.

So you see even in this case,a reason with Dragons in them would eventually serve the purpose , but in a more..err.. permanent way.

Very few of us are happy, we always crave for something, be it an object or a person. It might not be achievable in real life, but inside your head. Anything is possible !!!

You need to master your imagination/thoughts and not become a slave. Just as you need to train your dragon, you need to train your imagination.

Feeling Sad - Think Happy Thoughts, Imagine funny scenarios, ignore the pain and suffering.

Stuck at Home - Why not take a fishing trip with your Dragon and so on ..

So you see life's has become so limited with Dragons not being around. Who knows what would be the endless possibilities if each of us had a dragon.

P.S. - As each Dragon is more of less a Walking/Flying WMD, their presence might also result in World peace with end to every war, (that or humans would destroy each other.)
