    "I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

    words i love

    “I can believe things that are true and things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not.

    I can believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe and Elvis and Mister Ed. Listen - I believe that people are perfectable, that knowledge is infinite, that the world is run by secret banking cartels and is visited by aliens on a regular basis, nice ones that look like wrinkled lemurs and bad ones who mutilate cattle and want our water and our women.

    I believe that the future sucks and I believe that the future rocks and I believe that one day White Buffalo Woman is going to come back and kick everyone's ass. I believe that all men are just overgrown boys with deep problems communicating and that the decline in good sex in America is coincident with the decline in drive-in movie theaters from state to state.

    I believe that all politicians are unprincipled crooks and I still believe that they are better than the alternative. I believe that California is going to sink into the sea when the big one comes, while Florida is going to dissolve into madness and alligators and toxic waste.

    I believe that antibacterial soap is destroying our resistance to dirt and disease so that one day we'll all be wiped out by the common cold like martians in War of the Worlds.

    I believe that the greatest poets of the last century were Edith Sitwell and Don Marquis, that jade is dried dragon sperm, and that thousands of years ago in a former life I was a one-armed Siberian shaman.

    I believe that mankind's destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it's aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there's a cat in a box somewhere who's alive and dead at the same time (although if they don't ever open the box to feed it it'll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.

    I believe in a personal god who cares about me and worries and oversees everything I do. I believe in an impersonal god who set the universe in motion and went off to hang with her girlfriends and doesn't even know that I'm alive. I believe in an empty and godless universe of causal chaos, background noise, and sheer blind luck.

    I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn't done it properly. I believe that anyone who claims to know what's going on will lie about the little things too.

    I believe in absolute honesty and sensible social lies. I believe in a woman's right to choose, a baby's right to live, that while all human life is sacred there's nothing wrong with the death penalty if you can trust the legal system implicitly, and that no one but a moron would ever trust the legal system.

    I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

    magic

    to travel between realities,
    to see what we could have become,
    to see what the missed opportunities fathomed into,
    to see what alternate realities look like;
    a bit of my magic, for an unflinching will
    to stay in the present,
    mindful of missed chances,
    unmindful of better realities!

    love

    like every other thing in the cosmos,
    our story would be replaced too;
    and even when i am reconceived as
    different atoms across different dimensions,
    your love, forever, will be my deja vu !

    stars

    it was written in the stars that,
    for the many they witnessed before me -
    the men and women of yesterdays,
    for the many they witness alongst me -
    the men and women of today and
    for the many they are to witness after me -
    the men and women of tomorrows,
    love is the beginning and the end of it all.

    roots

    infinite roots with infinite stories
    are buried deep within the underbelly of
    the modern day earth even as
    their skyscraping tombstones stand sadly tall!
    the ageless trees -
    once a cause of joy,
    once a matter of pride,
    became a thing of hindrance
    and now well on course,
    in becoming an irreversible regret!

    Daughters of India

    So this is what it reads when you enter the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao corner of our government's site:

    Our Mantra should be: ‘Beta Beti, Ek Samaan’

    “Let us celebrate the birth of the girl child. We should be equally proud of our daughters. I urge you to sow five plants when your daughter is born to celebrate the occasion.” -PM Narendra Modi to citizens of his adopted village Jayapur.

    Thought of breaking it down sentence by sentence with a pinch of "salty reality" added to it.

    “Let us celebrate the birth of the girl child" - so men of this country could have more to hunt with minimal consequences and if they are privileged, hunt with the government's license with no consequence whatsoever.

    "We should be equally proud of our daughters." - Yes we should be. Especially of those who do not end up in a ditch, who do not get burnt, who do not get raped but manage to get back home "safe" with just a few hands molesting her and a few eyes throwing lustful glares.

    "I urge you to sow five plants when your daughter is born" - So that rapists do not have to search for trees when they decide to to hang her in the middle of a village; so that they do not find it difficult when they go searching for wood to burn her with or without the help of the police depending on their privilege.

    "to celebrate the occasion.” - an occasion that occurs a handful number of times everyday across every part of the nation, the state of which is normalised like a weather report at the end of a news that no one really cares about; an occassion where a country that boasts itself of a thousand goddesses, where a country that calls itself "Bharat Mata", is just a big cremation ground for many a bodies and many a dreams of its daughters.

    religion

    even at a time like this it is shocking to see the religious and racial stance taken by many in our country. even as the health care system is brazing for impact, more than love for his / her religion, the hatred for the other religions is ominously present. with the shortage of hospitals and hospital beds for treatment there might be a solution. converting every church, mosque and temple into treatment centres. every street in every corner of the country has not one, not two, but all the three of the above. just convert them into treatment zones. and for added benefits to the country, just announce that you can't get treated in the place of worship of your religion. might work. might not work. either way, works for our country.
