THE CONCEPT OF IMMORTALITY -analyzing a world without death

Let’s mess around with the idea of immortality, and imagine a world where the concept of death doesn’t just exist; a world where death and dying is an impossibility, and where ageing ceases after a particular time. Let us allow our imagination to run some miles ahead of us, and let’s see what we would come up with. Some time back, I wrote an article on the topic ‘age is nothing but a number?’ Where I gave my opinions on that popular statement, and recently after replying to a comment that was recently dropped on the post, I allowed my mind […]

THAT STREET CHILD

I pick my device to start typing, but I am held captive by my memories of that beautiful girl trapped in the predicament of being a street child. For seconds turning into minutes and threatening to spill into hours, I cannot bring myself to form words out of the memories of the day that has followed me into the silence of the night. I close my eyes in utter mental exhaustion, and her face invades the darkness within, illuminating my soul in a way that doesn’t bring hope, but betrays the effort I’m making in trying to stay calm. A […]

HELLO LOVELY PEOPLE! (filler post)

Hello my lovely people! What’s gooooood!? (Does the happy dance) It’s good to be active here once again! To be very honest, I missed you beautiful people, and I mean it with all sincerity in me.

THE HYPOCRITE IN THE MIRROR (SHORT STORY)

I had an encounter today. I was getting ready to go out with the family, and I had finished dressing up. Already, dad was hooting his horn outside, impatiently yelling us into the car at the same time. I had almost run out to meet up with my family of seven before I remembered I had dropped my phone on my bed. I rushed in again, got it and swirled round to head off, before I came face to face with this strange boy. He wore a mask, this beautiful mask of handsomeness and he had this charming allure about […]

DEAR PAPA (a short story)

Dear Papa, The sun is gradually setting, and this evening I can faintly hear your voice being carried in the wind of the dusk as you sing out loud and dramatically; “row, row, row your boat…” I know all of this is in my head as you’re dead and have been dead for a long time now, but the memories of your drunken voice even years later still warm me up and cause tears to gradually etch down my face. Papa, I miss you. Everybody thought I was stupid when I didn’t detach myself from you even as your alcoholism […]

EVERYBODY WANTS TO HAVE HATERS

I’ve been on my King Solomon mood for a while now, so please permit to sound like King Solomon yet again. coughs I have noticed yet another trend under the sun, and this one is very distressing…and somewhat amusing too. Well I think it would be amusing as long as you don’t fall into the category of people about to be scrutinized, so if you don’t find it amusing, consider checking yourself. Sooo, back to King Solomon matters. I have noticed yet another trend under the sun, and this one is very distressing and somewhat amusing. It is the competition […]

YOUR OPINION DOES NOT MATTER

Shut up. No for real though, I am not mincing words, you heard me clearly; shut up. I don’t know why you think anybody really wants to hear the horrible garbage you spew out all in the name of saying your mind, and I’m still trying to understand who or what you think you are that makes you believe that your demoralizing opinions of other people are welcomed. Shut up. None of the things you are going through, none of the way you feel, justifies you opening your mouth wiiiide like a broken faucet, and just before you close it, you succeed […]

THE INTERVIEW WITH ABORTED BABY

Adam and Eve were two remarkable fellows. I had a great interview session with them. One that left me and probably you the reader with an actively thinking mind, trying to reflect and comprehend on all the insights you got. But this interview today… I am interviewing a baby, an aborted baby at that and I don’t know what to expect, though I’ve been having this hunch for the past few weeks since the appointment was fixed, that this would be remarkably different from that of Adam and Eve. At least for one I don’t have to bother with what […]

THE POOR IS RICH, AND THE RICH IS POOR

Allow me to sound like King Solomon for a little while. There is a pattern which I have seen under the sun; at least in my neighborhood, and it never ceases to amaze and baffle me simultaneously. My neighborhood is a blend of the rich and the poor, and their pattern of living is very ironical, in comparison to what is expected considering their financial position. The poor, and there are quite a number of them, seem to be the ones enjoying life and living “lavishly”. They blast their music loudly from their stereos, entertaining the whole street, and they […]

AGE IS NOTHING BUT A NUMBER?

You most likely might have heard the phrase at least once in the course of living out your daily life ‘age is nothing but a number’ and perhaps might have even begun to see some element of sense in the statement too. People argue that the statement holds truth, and for some certain situations, that statement would be considered good news. People choose to believe there is an element of reason in this statement, but then if you’re talking of reasoning, let’s do some of that. In recent times, the phrase has been adopted by a lot of parties, and […]
