Truth Seeker

I find writing “About Me” already a flawed activity. Like everything else, I am in constant flux. I am never the same everyday. I am changing and evolving everyday. I contradict myself everyday. Describing myself in few lines is a futile attempt. If I am my roles — I am a son, brother, friend, husband and now a father. If I am my profession — I am a Scientist.

But then society teaches you not to compare yourself with others. It is “supposedly” bad to compare yourself with others. You then take this as an o...

Perpetuating the problem

Have you ever wondered why you love talking about your problems? Not the problems which are practical or analytical in nature where you can take clear action. For example, you have a flat tyre, you go to the repair shop, problem solved. You won’t keep ruminating about the flat tyre. I am implying the problems where you are unable to take any clear action to correct it. It is not in your hands so to speak. The psychological problems where there is no clearly defined path to solve it, nor ther...
