the art of pampering

if you pamper your kid on the dining table
 kid will never understand the value of food
 if you pamper your kid while playing next door
 kid will never know the value of neighbourhood
 if you pamper your kid daily on the study table
 kid will never be able to read between the lines
 if you pamper the kid by giving whatever he want
 kid will never understand the meaning of necessity
 if you pamper the kid by accompanying him always
 the kid will never know how to move the next step
 if you pamper the kid by agreeing to whatever he says
 the kid will never understand the pain of denial
 but still you need to pamper the kid at many occasion
 pamper the kid when he loses in school competition
 pamper him to be disciplined, to respect opposite gender
 pamper him to accept defeat, to develop sportsman spirit
 pamper at the right time, right place and in a right way

glorious past

Why we keep boasting of our glorious past?

our religious tolerance, our cultural heritage

our developed society, our booming economy

our diversity, our history, our spiritual heritage

we keep cursing the present and sit in a corner idle

we imprecate the current and stay irresponsible

we blaspheme out loud but do not perform or act

we condemn all around and stay most insensible

what we are is what is seen to the whole of world

no one can steal from us and even we can’t borrow

so why can’t we build ourselves a beautiful today

why can’t we stand and make a splendid tomorrow?

The power of crowdfunding

Few days back our maid servant was not in a good mood. Her husband had left the job of driving auto rickshaw and was now sitting at home doing nothing. She remembered the striking difference between her husband and son. Her son is very studious. He scored a decent rank in the engineering entrance exam couple of years back and secured an engineering seat. That time she was so elated that she didn’t eat food properly for few days as she couldn’t digest that good news. However it was later that she became worried about paying the fees and other expenses. Continue reading

the logic gates

when she is in relatively good mood

our conversations are not so crude

together we have a healthy debate

thus making life’s logical AND gate

when she bangs on my face the door

the gate gets converted to logical OR

when she possesses the wild uproar

the logic gate simply turns to XOR

when she doesn’t change her thought

the output resembles the logical NOT

repeated requests don’t alter her stand

circumstances mimic the logical NAND

when neither of us have any say

the logical NOR comes in our way

when that makes us unable to explore

the final logic gate gets stuck to XNOR

Should a working woman marry?

mar

Though the question appears bit unorthodox, looking at the current socio-economic environment, its relevance cannot be undermined. Though marriage is an institution, there is no compulsion that everyone should attend it. With the quantity of divorces on the rise and the domestic crime graph touching zenith, the belief in this institution is slowly thinning. Further, the trend of live-in relationship is also on the rise which is slowly making the paper called marriage certificate, obsolete. Continue reading

roots – a different take

as the vision got bit blurred with spectacles

the doctor asked me to change the number

and that triggered my mathematical brain

which was otherwise lying in the slumber

the newspaper appeared like algebra book

dining table gave me a trigonometric look

the people appeared like factorial sign

all the tress arranged in number line

the air sine waves, the steps square roots

the probability of getting healthy fruits

the statistics of hunger, the dynamics of food

my posture appeared to be geometrically good

my exponential desires, the only binary options

my life was shrouded with mathematical functions

but still the best ones are worth interpretation

please stop differentiation, facilitate integration
