One day, you and everyone you love will die. And beyond a small group of people for an extremely brief period of time, little of what you say or do will ever matter.
This is the Uncomfortable Truth of Life.
And everything you think or do is but an elaborate avoidance of it.
We are inconsequential cosmic dust, bumping and milling about on a tiny blue speck. We imagine our own importance. We invent our purpose – we are nothing.
Enjoy your fucking coffee!

The whole day was playing between clouds and clear sky, with a pretty chilled air in intervals. And when the evening finally came, with the dusk falling over the city, the last dramatic light lit up the tops of high-rises of the city.
Evidently this was shot almost at eye level to the Eiffel Tower. Any guess where this could have been?

Life of a hyena.
In Hindu mythology, the elephant headed god, Lord Ganesha, is also called “Endantha” which literally translates to “One Tooth”.
There is an interesting story to this.
Once upon a time, Ganesha had two tusks. Parasuraman promised to fulfill the wish of his mother Renuka Devi, to take revenge on the entire clan of Kshatriya, along with the King Karthyaveeraarjuna, who killed his father Jamadagni. For this sake, he did penance to get weapons from Lord Shiva. He gave the weapons to Parasuraman, which were Parashu and Pasupathaasthra. Parasuraman killed the entire clan of Kshatriya for 21 times, and came to Kailasa to take the Darshan of Lord hSiva, after doing another penance for him.
Ganesha refused to let him in to not disturb Shiva and Parvathi. Then Parasuraman tried to hit him with Parasu. Ganesh lifted him with his trunk and harassed him very much. He lifted Parasuraman upto Goloka where he had Lord Krishna darshan. Ganesha then soothed him and gave respect to the weapon Parasu, which was given by his father. He gave one of his two tusks to the axe, “Gajadantha” for not wasting the effect of the weapon.
From then onwards, Lord Ganesh became “Ekadantha”.
This is all from the scripture “Brahma Vaivartha Purana”.
I am strength by action; not by risk.
I am a thespian by shrewd play; not by happening.
When you slept and enjoyed the hourglass of beingness, I have spread myself in the darkest corners.
I don’t hold time for you or for your time or your dump!
You laugh at my experience today; you will have sleepless night to guess how I am going to end this.
Today you sit fighting dogma of a normal life; my life starts beyond the comfort zone….right where your ends.
You don’t even have courage to venture where I have molded myself.
Yes I am proud, I am self-praising and I am a narcissist. And why not?? There is no one to outperform me.
I am raw, I am inhumane, I am overt. I am living factual, I am hero and fortified!!
I am myself
I am me
I am being me
He is the sun and the shadow. And everything in middle is owned by him eternally.
