An introduction to this site

This blog does not follow any particular pattern. I add bits and pieces of everything ranging from articles, jokes, famous quotes, questions that you can answer etc. Earlier I used to administer a blog on the paranormal, however i shut it down due to certain reasons that I have mentioned in one of my posts.

“Jack of all trades, master of none”. I don’t really believe in this. I think the other way around, “Master of all trades, Jack of none”. Jack in my case being slave. I think that everyone should have sufficient knowledge of practically everything. Let’s say you get into a conversation about malaria. What happens if someone comes along and changes the topic to lets say ‘movies’. Will you just stand there and listen? Listening is no doubt an important part of a conversation but then wouldn’t you like it if you could add some valuable input to the conversation? I don’t know about everyone else, but I would sure love to know about everything that’s around me.

Anyways, that’s my endeavour. Some call me crazy, but who gives a damn. I love writing about everything and will continue to do so.

Empathy

Tags

, , ,


Empathy is feeling what others feel and to some extent being able to express your feelings towards that person and offering compassion in return. It’s a small word, but have you ever thought of it seriously. I am really poor at empathizing with folks. I find it hard to express myself at times. Especially, at times like a funeral of a person who I didn’t ever know. But then, don’t you think it would make a difference if I would walk up to the relatives and shared a word of compassion with them? Empathy is basically putting yourself in another persons shoes and feeling what they feel. Most people don’t find it to hard and some even go to the extent of faking it.

A few years ago I used to work for a collection firm. A firm that collected debts from people who had no intention of paying whatsoever. I remember calling those people and being hung up on, and abused. Well, I decided to resign one day as I decided this job wasn’t for me. My manager walked up to me and told me to empathize with the people I was talking to and I would see a great difference. I wasn’t really sure how that would help, so I decided to give it a shot. You would not believe the results that it yielded. People were dying for someone to listen to them and feel what they felt. I did that and believe me, when I resigned from that company about 5 years later, the VP of operations followed me to the gate, trying to get me to change my mind. I had become the best collector the company ever had. Even though I had faked the art of empathy, it payed off big time.

I don’t know if this will help you or not. Most people already are aware of the term empathy. The question is, do you use it???

A Haunting

Recently, I visited a relative who worked in a boarding school. The building is collonial and has immense negative energy that one can easily sense. I interacted a bit with the kids and felt that something was bothering them. There were dark circles under their eyes and I knew that they had not been sleeping well. I probed further and found out that they had been seeing apparitions and had been feeling a whole lot of disturbances in their dormitories. Continue reading

Islam….A Perspective

Tags

, , ,


I am a Christian who was born in a very strict and orthodox family. I was taught never to bow to down to any other religion or any other God. As I grew up I started to hear things that all of us hear everyday. But there was a certain subject that attracted me like a strong magnet. The topic was that of terrorism. I heard about various terror attacks that took place across the globe from sources like print media and television. What surprised me was, why are Muslims the only ones who are caught? I failed to understand it so I started with my own little research.

A lot of my friends told me that Muslims Continue reading

Eggs-Veg or Non Veg

Tags

,


This has been a topic of discussion for as long as I can remember. I was raised in a home where non vegetarian food was part and parcel of our lives. This question never did come up, whether eggs was considered vegetarian or non vegetarian. This only came to my notice when I started going to school about 3 decades ago when some kids avoided those who ate meat and eggs.
This is my point of view on the subject. There is a dish that is called cutie pie. I’m sure many of you would be aware of this. It’s a dish that is made from the meat of an unborn lamb. A month before the lamb is born the mother is killed and the the unborn is taken out and cooked. Many find this rather disturbing. It actually is!!!I say that the same would apply to the consumption of eggs somewhat. Both are unborn living things and are killed before conception.

Just a thought I wanted to share with all of you. ( I still eat eggs though).

Hereditary Demonic Possession

Tags

, , , ,


I was recently talking to a friend of mine who seemed to be quite disturbed. I asked him what the matter was and he told me that someone had cast a spell of black magic or witchcraft on his daughter. He was too embarrassed to say this to anyone or to seek help. I probed further and he confessed that there was a lot of unexplained activity going on in his home as well. After dark his daughter would start acting weird and start screaming and cursing at her parents. During the day she was absolutely fine, just as if nothing was wrong with her. As soon as the sun set she would turn yellow and her eyes would roll up. They were in a sad situation and they had nowhere to go. I then asked him if there was any similar cases in his family in the past. I was absolutely shocked when he said that he had faced the same problems when he was young. Many people had said that he had lost his mind. Some priests and religious people believed that he had been possessed by a demon. I offered to help. Even though I had left this field a couple of years ago I still felt Continue reading
