Battle with Self

An African saying - "Man’s greatest battles are the ones he fights within himself."

That's what I am doing these days. Fighting a battle with my own black self that stops me from disciplining myself. Though this blog entry is not a treatment to this disease but just a formal realization of what all I am into and how can I come out.

In this huge city, I don't find a single peaceful place where I can purify and pacify my soul. I am getting cooked for the desperation to eat me in the end but not able to save myself.

First time I realize that Discipline is not something one needs to forcefully comply with but to develop a taste for like other things.
Note: Loss of apetite for food is considered a disease because it serves our body's energy needs.

One more thing that I heard from some radio show or magazine is that Organization in any system is must for it to work smoothly. Imagine what would happen if everyday our body parts change places as per their own will!! Similarly, We start failing when we change routines routinely.

Actually over time, I feel I have developed taste for Disorganization. I wanted not to stuck in a machine-like daily routine like other morons but that has made me go on the extreme side of the other end. I don't know whether this disease has struck me or not. Because it's not like I don't like to keep my room organized though it does messes up frequently. The disorganization in my life is more related to my daily activities due to abrupt mood swings.

OK. Let me list some jobs that I want to do routinely.

Humans are the new Beast

Are you just a non-Vegetarian or a non-human? Find out yourself-

If Yes then You don't deserve even a pig's life.

  • Would you want to watch as someone poked a spear into your mother or father?
  • Can you even imagine the agony of being roasted alive on a grill?
  • Do you even think you can tolerate a blade slicing through your skin just because someone wants fancy clothes made of human skin?

LET US ALL MAKE IT a VOW to stop non-vegetarianism, stop cruelty to animals, never visit a zoo or circus, never buy woolen, fur, silk or unnatural clothes, never buy an animal product... because everytime we do these things, remember one of our brothers from the animal world is dying a merciless and undeserving death...

Dreams and She (sapne aur woh)

People usually ask - "koi nayee khabar"

Mera zawaab...
kya karun zindagi khabar hi nahi banati
raat aati hai roz uski yaad, bas woh nahi aati

When I slept to forget her...
ayenge woh is tarah humein kya pata tha
soye the hum to unko bhool jaane k liye

Do away with the word mankind

Most of us like eating fish, but nobody wants to cuddle them. The consequence is that, while otters, seals, elephants, rhinos and even foxes have powerful political constituencies to fight for them, mankind is doing disastrous things at sea without anybody seeming to care much.
I think we no longer deserve to be remarked as MANKIND. First do away with the word MANKIND.

Ban on trawling is not a solution to preserve aquatic life. We need to decrease the demand to such a level that trawling becomes economically inviable. For that the small step one can take is stop eating fish. You can start by reducing the amount you eat. I understand the demand of people living near the sea-shore. For them, it is the only food available in abundance. But what about people living in other areas like plains etc.?

Nature provides for everybody's need and not for everybody's greed.
We can blame trawlers for being greedy but what about the useless need we have developed. Do we all require sea-food to remain healthy?
