The Difference Point of View Makes

The sky is clear.
The light is dull, blinking and fading.
The shadows start to dance.
The road is messy with tires and feet.
The dog sees more people to go at.
The crow continues to exist.
Businesses see more evening opportunities.
The old man finds it hard to see.
The young laugh among themselves.
The young couple are happy to be with each.
The poor beggar just wants the day to end.
And I just walk and sip my coffee.
My evening walk feels uneventful, yet everything happens around.

The Glass

Is the glass half-full, or half-empty?

ImageIt was about time since this common expression was asked here. Actually when I went to attend the premier of Hannibal, there was this interesting psychological test with a doc (I still don’t know when to differentiate between a psychologist and psychiatrist in real life, despite reading up about them both. That’s another one of many misconceptions among general people that they are the same), in my session I was asked this question. Interestingly even was surprised with my answer (and even blown away by a response by a friend of mine to the same question). Well in another story, both of us were certified sociopaths, but lets not go there. 😛

In short for simplicity’s sake, I come under the realist category, well sort of.

Trading Places

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a member of the opposite sex for a day? What do you think life would be like?

I don’t know, I’m happy being a hipster guy 😛

To answer this question, this is a brilliant tv ad of the Idea cellular network here.

For non Hindi speakers, the wife and husband have a small argument that how hard their life is and the other doesn’t understand briefly and taunt each other to live each others’ life. Their son who was seeing all this simply exchanges their phones and the rest follows. After spending the day hearing their spouses calls and responsibilities they reconcile in a joking manner, and the ad ends with the tagline of the network “What an idea sir-ji”

The Mother’s Perspective

“You don’t eat anything. You just waste food and money.”

“But… “

“You aren’t eating properly. You are ruining your health.”

“But… “

“And when you do, you just consume junk. Still not good for your health.”

“But… “

“Not to mention wasting money and food.” (again)

Write about the last disagreement you had with a friend or family member — from their perspective.

This is my response. The above is from my mother as the title says, with the usual helpless me. This just happened some minutes ago as I typed this.

I always live usually tend to agree to disagree. More or less.
