Whenever we three friends want to go somewhere on a bike,we have to make sure not to break the norms here in our village.We get a bike and do something absurd.

Hii,I am Buddhiraj and the friends I am talking about are two guys: Tusar and Rahul.Here it's a glimpse of our friendship and daily life.

That's it, no need to go deeper into our personal life.

The absurd thing is, we let Rahul walks till village ends or to a space where people can't see him sitting in the same bike we are riding on.Especially,We …


Papa is sleeping a lot these days.

He is very passionate and shows great enthusiasm towards his homeopath books and online videos of case studies.Most of the time,one will find him writing notes and reading books by books and piling them up on his bed side.
I said to maa, "why is he sleeping and not doing anything.he is not even doing a simple thing like opening the covers of garlic .He is becoming more stubborn and old day-by-day" rudely.

Maa said nothing.

Today morning, maa saw him sleeping.I thought she might be angry.But,she said "he doesn’t sleep this much normally,has something happened to him?"in a very caring tone.

She showed her genuine perspective toward the person she deeply care about.


What exactly makes people selfish and uncaring towards others need and emotion ??An investigation.

This is a trial to look into a human being,but not by killing it.Ha Ha.Just kidding.In this writing we will try to get a good understanding of the scale and origin of sensitivity of a human towards others.

My attempt to give a ‘Theory of everything’ using complexity theory and some little borrowed facts from a diversity of fields

In my 12th grade ,I was trying to separate everything and all things into theirs respective extremities.Just like introversion and extroversion nature in myself,the chemistry and molecular physics in particles, cell organelles and life in a tiny cell.


In this article we will move from “Who am I?” to “What am I?” and find out the essential nature of our ‘self’.With a small talk about three layers of reality, some good knowledge from neuroscience and finally a bit of philosophical ending, enjoy reading this post.

Have you ever asked yourself “Who Am I?”.Yes, the question concerned with philosophy- existentialism - psychology things .

Now, I can give you some options (To post on Facebook)—

>I think,therefore I exist. (by Rene Descartes)
>I feel, therefore I exist. (I first read it in a post from my professor)
>People acknowledge myself,therefore I exist.
>Let’s assume that I exist.
>I know what it feels like to be me,so I exist.

Okay,lets stop here.Enough of these self-loathing sentences.They have very little usefulness to uncover the root of our existence .I will call these just some western show up.That’s it.They…


Remember the story of Ekalavya.How Dronachrya made him useless in the world of archers.Now here is the same story with different context and peculiar ending.

T
he gentle spring breeze was flowing while touching body and soul of all life forms.Dried-brown leaves were carried out everywhere in that flow.

Guru Dronachrya picked up a leaf out of a childish curiosity.He felt the roughness of that leaf by moving his finger on it.Suddenly,he sensed something unusual and tore the leaf with little effort.Now,he realised:the leaf was made out of thin paper with the dry-brown leaf like pattern painted on it.
He looked around and got surprised to see lots of such fake leafs flying around and scattered on both sides of a narrow path.

From the view of neuroscience and psychology….

Imagination is playing with Ideas.

Yes,thats true.It’s horrifying, Right?Don’t get shock.
Just hold on, I will explain you why.

Actually I thought about the idea of limited imagination when my roommate Anand came to room and started suddenly why we should visit places and explore more thing.He summarized his entire points with a single line:-

Imagination is limited.Isn’t it strange?

As a psychology student permit me to proceed in terms of mind perception and sensation like words.

1. We are not capable enough to perceive the world perfectly.

From a biological standpoint and also social and cultural view. Let’s stimulate the life of a frog and it’s awareness of…


A Psychologist’s speculation on human behaviour and Indian Sankar -A controlled wrong way.

Here is something funny but it is some softcore enlightenment written by PriyaDi on the exploitation of common people in name of Sanskar.Here didi has commented on how people are giving more importance to a social norms than(such serious issue like)birth of a child.
