Extrapolation and interpolation

These words appear to be too mathematical but almost all of us use these in our day to day activities. Some do it with an expertise and some without even knowing that they do! At first it may appear fallacious but it is up to you to decide whether I am true or not.

…Should we help others?

contd….from earlier part

Sitting on a railway platform and watching the arrival and departure of the trains is the best pastime one can have. At least for this, one need not have the smart phone or the internet. Since you don’t have to catch a train, you can sit relaxing, perhaps sipping a cup of tea and watch passengers rushing for their seats. The hawkers, the porters, the movement of trains, all make it a carnival like atmosphere around. I enjoy this dynamic atmosphere a lot. Continue reading

Should we help others?

This straightforward question started troubling my mind when I encountered a situation which is quite common for all.

Recently I had to go to the railway station to pick up my wife as my happy days as forced bachelor were coming to an end with the arrival of my wife from her mother’s place. She always insisted on me picking her up from the station. Possibly she wanted to read my expressions on encountering her after a lull. But I am doubly sure even if the expectations on the expressions were not up to the mark she is not going to catch a return train back home in any case? Continue reading

O my doppelgänger!

O my doppelgänger, I can see your anger

you wan’t me smart, but I remain candor

that has cost me heavily in all my endeavors

my contemporaries excelled, I remained in fears

you told me to be diplomatic but I didn’t change

my straightforwardness was regarded as strange

you asked me to be ambitious I remained same

neither cared for fame nor worried for name

you told me to be opportunists, biased and selfish

but I thanklessly didn’t even fulfill your wish

so, O my doppelgänger, I respect your anger

I will remain as I am, don’t try to tamper

inspiring start

I think all my companions are magician

because they all come in limited edition

they are good at the art of disappearing

they have mastered magic engineering

some write the blog posts and disappear

and do not turn up for more than a year

some reply to comments and disappear

how they vanish so fast is never clear

some like posts as if they are around

but surprisingly they are never found

let me also learn this beautiful art

and try to make an inspiring start

google autocomplete

pre_s

thought of writing on premature

poetry or prose, I am not very sure

thought of searching in the google

but the search proved to be brutal

as the autocomplete was in action

and gave me such weird suggestions

seeing first one the thoughts lurched

as it appeared to be the most searched

the second on the list was most relevant

as that made the search look more elegant

here I am with this mind blowing experience

can someone perform the analysis of variance?

Garbage from a polluted mind

Do you like visiting a historical museum or an archaeological site? Many of us may not and many just wonder why people spend their time and money in seeing things which people say ‘were used by the historical figures earlier’. Whether it is the dress worn by the kings or the gun, or the vessels, the throne, the crown, the equipment, the cushion, the locks etc. all these can tell the current generation how we have been evolved over the years. These historical things are the testimony of it. Continue reading
