This has nothing to do with the post, im just on a quote collecting spree!

The Kiterunner

I read this book a few weeks ago and for the next few days i could do nothing but let my fingers do the tango on the keyboard and learn everything i could about the situation in Afghanistan and the author. This book is bound to twang ur heart strings and there are few books as unputdownable as this. You just can't, WOULDN'T , stop till you reach the very last page.I don't think anything i say would be enough to justify this amazing read, so i better stop going about it, it just wouldn't be fair enough. This is something you'd wish to gift everyone and get them fall for it and then scramble over to lay their hands on Khalaed Hosseini's second piece of amazing literature "A Thousand Splendid Suns". These books were, as a matter of fact, books of Realisation for me. To think, we fight for so little, narrow down our thoughts to US ,and sometimes to those who matter to US, but beyond that... nothing.Kaput.Finito. To think that we sit for chai and samosas [or at latte and brownie for the CCD loyalists :) ] and so sagely nod our headsand say "Desh tar r kichu hobe na".This country is doomed. But few care to do anything about it. Nowadays its hip to say " I am apolitical". I say its a shame to say so! I don't say it from the perspective of someone who has a metre square of tarpauline to call home nor as daddy's pretty princess who has never worn nothing but Mango,Gucci, Diesel et al. I speak As an average 18 year old, who goes to school in an auto and once in a while watches movies at multiplexes,enjoys phuchka as much as that gourmet dinner at Mainland CHina. Its not cool to take your country for granted. Its not okay to sit home on election day and watch ur favourite chick flick. People all over the world are fighting for the basics we get as our birthright. Some things ought to be realized before its too late. Some rights ought to be exercised before they are not yours anymore.
If i ever meet Khaled Hosseini, i'd genuflect! To learn about the author and the current situation in afghanistan,just google it or visit

An essay

This was something i scribbled in about 15 mins in our last english paper.But it made to the *selected essays* booklet our english teacher decided to publish (no biggie,just for keeps in the school library so it is.
The world is yet uncivilized
Imagine. You - a thirty something woman approaching a mall. It has revolving glass doors.You are about to enter when there is nothing but excruciating pain,a part of your face feels numb, probably your nose, you are sitting on something hard and cool-metal? No. But it shines.The floor of the mall, you realize.But were you not outside- about to enter?But your sitting near the door.Inside the mall.Your purse lies some ten paces away and there’s a group of people staring at you like you sprouted another head.But you see no hand,and you would like to get up-and you do so on your own,collect your purse when you see a teenager in her early teens.Jaws in motion, multitude of piercings, expensive shades-probably Gucci,pulled up and holding her hair away from her face. “Should’ a seen it coming ,Aunty”, a nasal drawl, Jimmy Choo stilettos clicking away. You instantly realize that your four year old’s vocabulary is better.She knows a five letter word – SORRY.
Man is going to the Moon, and Mars, has dreams of colonizing other planets if possible, yet man plants bombsin his own planet, gets fiendish pleasure in seeing his fellow beings suffer.Animals are not living beings, they are to be ogled at the zoo on weekends and kept shut up in a cage in a high tech laboratory.As civilized as man tries to become, the more he goes the other way.The introductory experience is just on the micro level,on the macro level it’s the era of globalization, of rockets, of ipods and super computers- and a world where man still gets the primitive pleasure of establishing supremacy by force. Man has the gift of the gab, the intelligence to incorporate more than a few foreign languages, yet his voice box fails him when he has to apologise.
Man has been nurtured by Mother Nature ever since his birth,depended on her for survival and stands on his feet on metal roads instructing to cut down forests for yet another flourishing metropolitan city.In a way, man is running in a circle,the more he advances,he gets closer to the beginning-the former beginning was a better one,easier to construct his future upon and the beginning that is to come is fractures.Nothing can be steady when its foundation is not steady.But it would be wrong to say that humane qualities have ceased to exist,that man is but a wild beast,an intelligent one at that.but what reflects the society is the majority.the majority drives the civilization to the Jurassic Age, not physically, but mentally. That is why man never thinks twice before stoning another, verbally or physically. The I.T hubs would still be there,a hundred more surely, but man will not be himself, his insecurity would drive him to insanity and his vaulting ambition to be one of them at the Serengeti. Man has been growing intelligent no doubt, but he has been shedding morality at the quest for knowledge.At this rate,he would soon be an inanimate encyclopedia, not a thinking,talking and socializing being.The era of globalization opens up one country to another,but man withdraws himself more to the point, that at one point in time Isolation would be his best friend.
But neither the back of a criminal’s mind nor the darkest night is a fathomless black. The heart of a lily, or that of a do-gooder is not a dazzling white either. Its always darkness and light, ‘yin’ and ‘yang’-but not the same shades of gray always, there exists colours. One may not always see the easel or paint brush but too see the world as it wants to be seen one can surely wish for a kaleidoscopic vision next Christmas.
