Pursuit of Happiness-1

I have always wondered about happiness. It seems like happiness comes in life in moments and remains elusive as ever. However, everyone goes on an eternal pusuit of happiness. In Manache Sloka, Saint Ramdas says ‘ Jagi sarva sukhi asa kon ahe, vichare mana tuchi shoduna pahe’ (Who is the happiest man on this earth? Try if you can find him) indicating that such a person doesn’t exist.

All religions promise to deliver an eternal happiness. Maybe, it’s this promise which attracts man towards religion. Each one of us wants to be happy. We want to hold on to the moments which make us happy and stretch them forever.

Pursuit of happiness

The Captcha Encounter

What is your most dreaded invention? Mine is captcha. Never before had I any doubts of being human.
Whenever, I try to comment on any blog and encounter the Captcha, my heart skips a beat.If you are brave enough to face so many artistically maligned, collapsed letters, then I salute your courage. I tremble when I see it and worse can never guess the letters in first attempt and sometimes, second or third.

It makes me think and I hate thinking, more so when it borders on introspection. Have I forgotten the alphabets? Now, I can sympathize with my Professor who had told me, he had difficulty understanding cursive writing. Maybe it’s nemesis. I shouldn’t have mocked such people. 

There’s a chance that the problem doesn’t lie in my recollection of alphabets. There’s one explanation. Captcha is an amazing discovery to search robots intermingled with humans. I must be a robot. Are you having the same problem? Then, we, the robots should all unite against this Captcha. If you have seen many Hollywood movies, I don’t have to sketch our further plan to you. If not, rush to your nearest DVD store.

Do you use Captcha in your blog for filtering Spam? Are you an expert in Captcha recognition?
Do let me know your views on Captcha.

A Letter to the Sun

Dearest Sunny,

I know you’ll be surprised (or probably annoyed) when you receive this letter. The truth is I can’t bear to look at you, hence this letter. No, I haven’t done anything stupid, it’s you who is in one of your tempers again.

You are my best friend and you bring warmth and joy in every life you touch, the kind of girl who guides people from darkness to light. But, this is when you are in a generous mood. When you are blazing with fury, there exists no man in this world who can face you. In that mood you transform from a benevolent angel to a holy terror.
