It is an anthropological truth that language is the hallmark of a culture and a culture can express itself in its own language.
Brooks are no more babbling nor do mother’s loving idioms make me dribble to soak my attire. There is no one around to put a bib on me nor does anyone care for my running nose. I am brought forth as a larva and brought up as a machine to follow the commands of the […]
When she comes to the world we try to find in her eyes not a scientist, pilot, a captain, a teacher or a philosopher but the greatest grandmother.
‘Is daughter a burden’ sounds a banal in this age of scientific advancement when computer technology has swooped down to lift the social stigmas in its talons. It has eradicated all the difference between genders. Gone are the days when women were treated as weaker sex and they were thought to be dependable on men. […]
Life loathes learning as it sees toddlers lumbering along the road with heavy sacks of black and white material on their tiny backs that could easily develop lifelong scoliosis in them at this tender age. They are pushed away from the affectionate atmosphere of the family and whipped in line to the strange environment of […]
Whenever I fall prostrate, the ground shudders and cries that my heart is over brimming with the mush and goo of ritualism and my prostration is prickly and painful. We are heedless to those protests that would otherwise send tremors down the spine. We have become so irresponsible that our conscience has frozen beyond the […]
Let us expand it as Social Distancing Hysteria that is prevailing all around the local SDH campus. I went there to collect the Corona Test Certificate for which I had filled the form a couple of days before. And that morning I had been asked to stand on an inverted cuboid in front of the […]

Is not it the teacher’s galvanizing force that enabled the handful of dust to ride it’s soul to defy the distance of stars and planets and the depth of oceans […]
Don’t empower them or you will be more impoverished. There is a meagre percentage of bureaucrats and politicians who have some grain of sincerity towards the masses. Their parents have taught them directly or indirectly that they are born to rule. Indirectly, in the sense, the parents play a supernatural role by possessing the teacher […]
Pen can write Budha's Ashtmarg or it can write the death sentence for the medieval mystic for his allegorical statement.
Living organisms have sensation and where there is sensation there must be feeling. Animals express their feelings. For instance a cow kicks a stranger who tries to milk her. Dogs make a ferocious face on strangers. Even in humans, an infant gurgles or cries to express comfort or discomfort. These are meta lingual expressions. The […]
A cow sometimes kicks the milkmaid. The kick conveys that the cow is hit or hurt so she protests. Her way of protesting is kicking as she can’t communicate and speak with the milkmaid. Now come to humans. What do we do when we are hit or hurt? We speak. We give vent to our […]
