The saddest moment in the life of a machine : Sep 18, 2006






A machine can't recognize a machine as machine so far the machine is either capable of seeing it self as machine or evolve into a potential human, fighting his/her mechanical ness.

The saddest moment in the life of any machine is when it sees it self as machine but fails to operate.

How can one unthink something without thinking? Sep. 18, 2006






While driving back home, my mind drifted to an eatable for no logical reason. If I was to eat this typical Indian savory, I wasn't required to think about it. I could simply go and eat without giving a thought. But I thought and I thought why am I thinking? Is it any kind of repressed desire to eat? No chance. Then?

I think my mind was seeking an escape route, rather one more among many so that I can easily while away my time now, and then.

Well, I decided to unthink the thought of this eatable.

My, my, how could one unthink some thing without thinking about it?

But I tried, ending up thinking about it more and more.

Perplexed and realizing anger rising inside me, I auto-suggested-' patience ashok, hold on to your attention and neutralize all thoughts. Slow down. Just watch and let the thought die its own death. Don't become your thought.

It took some time.

I saw the thought floating in and out and then disappearing once and for all.

But the suggestion was registered.

The moment I walked inside my house, I found myself in the store, opening the box in which this savory was kept.

Adding meaning to the path: Sep. 18, 2006 .






I found a path, away from all escape routes, which had life and heart. But when I stopped walking, taking the path for granted, it turned into yet another escape route. Heart sustained and so did life but stagnant.

With heavy heart, I closed this path, conditionally. It shall open only when I am in the process of my walk and close when I shall tend to use it just as an escape route.

I am putting a price, adding meaning to this path which has a throbbing heart.

My heart is on stake : 18 sep. 2006


I have never cried tears in my 'wakeful' life, to the best of my memory.

I found a tiny one hanging onto the left corner of my left eye today.

This can happen when you put your heart on stake.

She lends me an hour

I lend her two

My hour will reflect her face of my face

My face of her face shall reflect her two hours

From one escape route to another: Sep 10, 2006




De stuck from one, stuck up in yet another, here I am justifying the qualitative difference. Is this the route I had intended? All the escape routes shall vanish the moment I AM. And I wonder, what is it holding me from becoming. Why is MG Road so elusive.

It took me more than a hour to get out of my bed. I don't know how long will it take me to 'wake up'

Forgetting to remember: 9thsep, 2006



The law of change is funny. Initially when I started remembering to remember, In my endeavor to use the law of repetition, I was remembering to count but forgetting to remember. In the last few days I observed that I am remembering but forgetting to count. It's good so far I am remembering, though its still not so active.

I continue to defy: sep 7, 2006 .




I think of defying but I don't. The past keeps on defying me, living my present.

I think and ACT, the past starts crumbling. Now my present shall determine my past as I am going to determine my present. Future has no place in this scheme.

I will continue to defy every law and the mother of all mothers.

Defying is becoming easier: Sep 5, 2006.




Defying is becoming easier and, because of the charge I am deriving from the very act of defying.

I am a trickster, tricking my selves.

But, I must ensure that I don't give them a chance to feel excited about.
