Notty nor Nice😉

Notorious Farce Descends life graph quickly.” Thinkinkadia

Life is like a street, where our deeds catch up with us at the next signal, sooner than later.

You may be the driver of your car, and you might be so cool, think it’s fun/ funny, want to reach some where faster than others- but if one doesn’t respect the traffics pace or needs, then the attitude generates a consequence that brings down the car, spirit, or figures resting in the wallet.

In life’s costs, that’s got to hurt!

Especially, for a public figure addicted to publicity.😉

Fittest Revive Over the Precipice!

Precipice

Fully conscious and deserving are you,
make your mistakes, with abandon enjoy;
Guided by power of insight anew-
Try out ideas, courage to toy.

Have faith in your abilities,
Build the skills to create, every day.
Sway not by riches, nor nitty-gritties;
Create in dreams, that you doth play.

No need to care, or gingerly tread,
around the proud, overconfident.
Do the needful, you mustn’t dread-
Work awardless, regardless; make that dent.

In this world, ring in justice
for people whose struggles are true.
Hang not over life’s precipice-
Let survival remain of the fittest few.

O to the Beheaders

Which God promotes it?
Every religion has done it.
Dark ages, stark ages,
We are failing all our sages.
The mankind,
thru human unkind.

Does nature allow it,
As a way to give peace?
Does being civilized allow it
As a way to balance populace?

Is it an accomplished (un)kind of feeling
as you slice a human head and send it reeling?
Is beheading the beheader the logical punishment?
Is slicing up people a way to get
heavenly commitment?

Ask the designer of these techniques inhuman,
Or the trainer of intelligent agencies super-human:
Have you dominated enough of those near?
Instilled enough fear in your not so dear?

How do you make people forget
these murdering thrills;
your desired treat you now get?
They’re still cooking the hills-
generations after you got your
piece of cake, hors-d’oeuvre.

Habits that kill hard,
DIE hard.

While you move on true.
Dominate, justify too.
Weapons and commerce –
scores, medals, purpose.
Peace of mind or land won?
Peace be within you when done.

Control:
Over
n
Out.

Blanket All’s!

IMG_8445Blanket

Wikipedia informs us that blanket word came from the name Thomas Blanket (Blanquette), a Flemish weaver who lived in Bristol, England in the 14th century.

I went deeper into synonyms, not believing that there weren’t blankets before the fourteenth century, and I found a wonderful online resource: “Pashmina” by A. Pathak.

According to Pathak, shawls and woollen fabric traditions existed since the Indus Civilization. They were even mass produced for export in the 14-15th centuries. It was a huge cottage industry in the Himalayan region and got a new life during Zain-ul-Abidin’s reign in Kashmir. There were gift exchanges of fine goat hair mar’izz(a) shawls even in the 13th-14th Centuries.

Apparently, the English and French weavers were inspired by Kashmiri shawls, discussed in detail by J. Irwin and M.L. Strauss. Forster in 18th and Moorcroft in 19th Centuries detailed about the process and enterprise itself, noting that floral designs became popular.

Aurangzeb’s physician, Bernier, in addition was so impressed in 1655, that he wrote down accounts about every aspect of the mass production of these prized shawls.

P.S. If you know facts from your cultural histories, kindly add links/ info below because I believe it is necessary to give due weightage to facts available in any language.

Out of the-Box, Box-in, Boxing

It must be the phase people are going through as a society, that insecurities, with a sprinkling of anxiety, stress, and fear; that Cranky is in fashion!
It isn’t funny to get creative about, but when you see such trends over decades, couple as a child and three as a student of curiosity, then it becomes amusing. The aftermath is scary for sure, what we human beings are capable for doing to each other within and without democracies, plutarchies, and any other box you can think of.

Which brings me to the point that we people love categorizing everything and people in a box BUT we aspire to BE out of the box! Extremely amusing trend that is Climbing the charts.

Our biographies, televisions shows, magazines celebrate people, scientists, workers, women, and leaders who were self-made or out of the box, which itself does seem to have its own defining (read, limiting!) criteria, another box. As in, a box for being out of the box!!!

If you are not ‘in a box’ or in the ‘out of the box’ box, then you are possibly put in a waste box, dismissed as trash, ignored as a useless liability.

Why? In my view, it is because of the ‘box-in’ tendency of a human. To rise above our tendencies, surpass our limiting natures, isn’t understood easily as a strength. Please do ponder about what we can be as a society even if ten percent of the worlds population rises above boxing (read, fighting) or rise above the tendency to box-in (read, categorizing) people?

Boxing or Box-in: Is that all we are capable of?!!

IF, a habit?

(My British friends, please have faith through some of this historical pattern … It does get better!)

If England hath no King…
If the Vikings had not invaded England
If the English hath no tortures subjected
If the English had no need to be the first to explore,
If the English hath no need emerging for greater power
If the English hadn’t seen the mission of spreading their way of life to the world
If the English hadn’t seen their way as the right way
If the English didn’t infect the world with Victorianisms
If the English hadn’t set up colonies everywhere
If the English hadn’t seen their invaded as primitive
If the English hadn’t enforced their language, their isms
If the English hadn’t treated people like darkies or dogs
If the English hadn’t been building deadly weapons
If the English hadn’t accepted it fair to leave people in peace
If the English hadn’t tired of resistance, gone back
If the English hadn’t reconsidered their role in history
If the English hadn’t learnt from their mistakes
If the English hadn’t opened their minds and doors
If the English hadn’t unified the world through language,
If the English hadn’t installed the technology they left behind
If the English didn’t revere so much their Queens
If the English didn’t hold on to Royal symbolism
If the English hadn’t standardized government, systems

If the Americans
didn’t repeat
patterns
………
……
….
..
.

Then,
Atleast one of worlds’ cultures may have evolved or at least retained a different system, albeit in another language, maybe in small measure, that would have been fair to diversity and respecting peoples for who they are.

Today If any One Family, or system in any part of the world, were to try to spread so many of its beliefs and build systems out of their own confidence and insecurities, we would hush them with a few choice words, fully understanding the purpose of their symbolism.

Since it is in the past,
we hold on,
and on …
on.

We change spellings.
We change accents.
We change clothes.
We change food.
We change minds.
We change others.
It’s a timely want
to change
We can’t
Don’t
Will
not
?

We laugh at ourselves
But the sameness …
Lingers on
We don’t
even
feel
it!

We made IF

The 👑 King, 🐓-Less egg

I am Pleased to inform you
That Man has used his intelligence
To distinguish humans in evolution, hence.
Now is ready to relinquish the title mute,
Sliding down the list to extinguish its repute.

The distinguishing quality from other species, you ask?
To make an utter fool of our own species,
Faking Nature: flowers, art, emotions.
And now even food
The egg!

The reason, you ask?
The logic?
Or, ill~ of it.
Simply for,
making it count,
accumulating.
Counting
more numbers of
coloured paper,
with number on it,
made from pulp,
fiber, and
dye.

Pro of a Con!

imageTenacious

Do not be discouraged when someone puts you down;

Puts you down in your own or another country;

In the other country: your own kind or those who claim the land their own;

For, when they put you down, they know no better, themselves-

That when they keep you down, they are treating you like a spring.

And when the spring is pushed down all the way, it’s wound up very tight,

And it has no other way left to go, except UP😉

So my friends, Hang in there tenacious! It’s time to be thankful 🙏

💣Viral Denial🔫 Vatif and Masti are at it again!

Are we in Denial about the significance of weapons industry in WARs around the world?

Instead of killing 50 people with bows and arrows, we are now civilized enough to kill millions people without looking at them.

Hmmm🤔 I hear voices: it’s Vatif and Masti again. Do you remember the two voices that sit on my shoulder that talk non-stop to confuse me? One is a little insecure and asks what if questions all the time, fearing the worst. The other is happy go lucky and always looking for fun and lighter moments.

Vatif: “What if weapons production was stopped?”

Masti: ” Nooo, then our world will be over-populated but we want to keep all our good resources to ourselves! Wink wink.”

Vatif: “What if we get killed by the side effects of our own weapons?”

Masti: “Ha haa! We won’t even come to know! Relax!”

Vatif: “What if you had common sense? You are so stupid!”

Masti: “Let it go, chill! Tch … such an idiot! Let’s go to the lake for a picnic.”

Vatif: “What if a snake or alligator comes out and bites me?”

Masti: “Oh, come off it! Let’s go boating! We’ll worry when something happens …” And starts singing a song🎵

They go rowing and have a picnic into the sunset🌅 and go to sleep in peace.
