Share LOST AND FOUND - Part 1
2017-11-5 08:25
Ram walked home, shoulders slouched, his head and shoulders wet from the rain, his leather office bag obviously heavy at his side. He had had an unusually early start to this Friday workday. He seemed tired,quiet and subdued, but was watchful of his surroundings on the local train home. That bag carried an unusual load this day. He had gone to the bank and withdrawn a large amount of money. All but a couple of hundred rupees of it was already spoken for - advance deposit to buy a small flat thro ...

Share The Strong Too Need Help Sometimes
2017-10-19 08:12
Not just the weak, but the strong too can use a helping hand sometimes. Not just the poor, but the rich too can sometimes use financial help Not just the sad and suffering, but the happy people too are deserving of our empathy and understanding. All have human feelings and need to depend on others sometimes.

Share Rebel Chick-Artificial and Natural Intelligence-Is there max quota for species?
2017-10-16 12:00
I was feeding my neighbour’s chickens and putting out some water for them, while they were away on an overseas trip. The chickens had more freedom of movement around their yard when their owners were in. I was instructed to keep them within a smaller stretch which was fenced in. The birds - “Ladies” as I called them, soon got used to my being their carer. They repaid me with eggs. I could sense their working out trying to get their usual privileges from me. The signals they s ...

Share Ann and Mary
2017-10-15 07:37
There were two girls who were siblings They were so unlike each other It was hard for anyone to believe They were born of the same mother One felt she was God's gift to the world She was a stunning beauty Every man around her little finger she twirled To serve her was his duty She looked like Aphrodite She acted high and mighty Her God-given assets, sure looked so fine And over the years ...

Share The Best of Americans - Heroes and Leaders
2017-10-13 11:18
The current political news from the USA brings to mind the above question. Every country and society has all kinds of people - good and bad, strong and weak, rich and poor, clever and foolish. It is the relative distribution of these characteristics that varies a little bit among them, but not as much as we might be led to believe from the media. However, cultural acceptance of certain traits or qualities as 'desirable' or 'undesirable' can vary markedly between different coun ...

Share The Pepsi or Coke Democracy
2017-10-13 10:04
"Coke or Pepsi? " This is typically what you get asked in the USA when you order a fast-food meal. You are given a choice between two comparable items. "McDonalds or Burger King? " That is another choice before you decide where to go to order a meal. The quality of both are roughly the same and it really does not make much difference to your body which of the two you choose. Similarly you are offered more choices -"Regular or Diet?" when you decide on the drink, with some appa ...

Share Damsel In Distress
2017-10-10 07:31
A damsel in distress I met one day Dishevelled, upon the ground she lay In a plaintive voice I heard her say "Sir, I've been through a lot and it was hell. I'll spare you the details and I won't tell." I helped her up, felt it was my duty I held her close, she was a beauty I built her up and gave her my heart Put her on a pedestal right from the start Soon I could not imagine us ever being apart I would do anything to see her smile I gave her a yard and she took a mile To figure her out it to ...

Share The Sad Princess
2017-10-9 09:04
Her feet were completely off the ground They were high up in the air Always on a pedestal she could be found She had put herself up there .. On her head an imaginary crown Her self-esteem was really down Outwardly, she was haughtily frowning Inwardly, in misery she was drowning .. Putting on the airs of a Princess Royal She waited for him - a Prince who was loyal But she nipped the bud right at the start Whenever came along, a prince with heart .. 'The wait' she seemed to prefer To any real good ...
