`Another Random Thought

"Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Just wondering, what is the worst non-fatal, non-demeaning thing you can do to a person?

Surely, one of them is allowing him/ her to explore things so that forms his opinions and ideas about things, and then exercise control (& not just give opinions) on what he should think, what he should deem as right or wrong & what he should do .

Barbaric it may sound but probably allowing him to remain ignorant may be a better option.

What say?

Reality Shows?

Recently I managed to get a glimpse of 2 (reality) shows -

"Rakhi ka Swayamwar" and "Sach ka Saamna"

While the former is a manifestation of a publicity hungry clothes shedding "Sati Savitri", the latter is a virtual slaughter of private life in full public glare for few wads of money?

Or am I wrong ?

Maybe Rakhi Sawant has really changed, and hopes to find a soulmate and become one of those Tulsi-type bahu and people are facing the truth just to come 'clean', to make amends to demands of their conscience!

Meanwhile, I am reminded of Dhitrashtra's statement in jaane bhi do yaaron -

"ye sab kya ho raha hai"

Countryside travel

Traveling around country side is so much -

exciting

tiring

interesting

frustrating

but above all ... enlightening (now, I still don't claim to be an enlightened soul though!)

It is just so awesome an experience. You get to know soooooooo many different shades of life - some good, some not so good, some un-good and some outrightly bad. But then, that's life!

I may be liking only parts of it right now, but I am sure that in times to come I'll cherish these 'traveler' moments of mine ... hopefully !!!!

Hoping to come with a longer, detailed post ... Hopefully I don't run out of motivation & energy by then!!!
