AoA Ed,
Asif Nawaz’s write-up in October’s 3 issue (Five people you meet in literature festivals) is what compelled me to write this letter. The cover story was a very interesting piece. There was too much of politics in my head these days and I’m sure I’m not the only one. The timing couldn’t have been better! “Lemme take a selfie awaam” literally cracked me up. Loved it!Asif Nawaz is one of my favourite writers, truly an inspiration. ....

9173_10_17_2014_1.gifAngry, sad, frustrated, emotional or resilient we may call our nation, and rightly so. Yes, as a nation, we keep surprising ourselves. For most part, we complain about wrong stuff happening around us, but become furious when anyone shows us the mirror! Let’s not blame the government or the ‘system’ or the socio-economic cycle that has engulfed us all. It is actually our attitudes that need to change.

As a nation, we have an external locus of control and blame things on ‘foreign elements’ rather than owning them and making constructive changes. We are simply too indifferent to be bothered. ....

9175_10_17_2014_1.gifIntelligence tests and rote learning share a connection. Qualification demands certain things to be known by heart, like text book stuff, theories, or researches. If you want to retain a factual detail, best in my opinion, would be to experience it personally. Because, when something is executed ‘in the flesh’, it gets embedded in the performer’s thought process very effectively. Let’s say ‘being part of an experience’ gets that fact a direct promotion from one’s short-term memory cubicle to the long term memory suite. And bingo! It resides there better (comfortably stretches its legs, lights a cigar, enjoys ambience ... yes, the fact :P). ....

His burning candle consumed me - the moth;
His wine overwhelmed my goblet,
The master of Rum transmuted my earth to gold
And set my ashes aflame.”

He is my prince charming

Dear Guru,
I like your column very much. I am an 18-year-old girl, studying at a prestigious college. I am in love with a 22-year-old guy, ‘K’. We have been seeing each other since the past two years. K is very handsome. I feel so lucky to have such a good looking guy in my life. ....

9179_10_17_2014_1.gifSuit yourself!

A man was driving down a quiet country lane where out into the road strayed a rooster. Whack! The rooster disappeared under the car, followed by a cloud of feathers.

Shaken, the man pulled over at the farmhouse, rang the door bell. A farmer appeared. The man, somewhat nervously said, “I think I killed your rooster, please allow me to replace him.” ....
