An observation

This may seem a little funny. This may also seem a little weird.
But what the heck…anything to break the monotony!

I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately, from across the world. And this particular thing struck me (Yeah yeah these things strike only weird minds like mine:D), that the local climate has a lot of influence on poets and lyricists, especially the kind who write romantic stuff.

Consider a few scenarios. India, with its warm climes (atleast in the majority of the country), people always wait for the rains. Everyone is relieved when the rains begin, signalling the end of the hot summers. So they’re generally looked upon as something ‘good’. No wonder most of the bollywood movies feature a romantic song or atleast a scene in the rain.

On the other hand, consider places with colder climes. People look forward to a sunny day. Effectively, most of the romantic lines have something to do with ‘sunshine’ or a sunny day, with rains/clouds usually figuring as spoilsport.

PS: I intended to keep this to myself, but was prodded endlessly to put it up here. So kindly address all complaints regarding this post to a certain ‘X’ (mr/miss, you’re free to decide:D).


Practical lies are very much a part our lives today.
Pause for a moment and think how much you’ve lied throughout the day- at work, at home, with friends etc etc.
Be honest, and you’ll see the results for yourself. Infact, by the time we grow up, we get so accustomed to lying that we don’t even realize when we do it. It just becomes a sort of mental reflex system invoked to keep us out of tricky scenarios.

It is a natural and practical human tendency, and hence acceptable. The disturbing fact here is, our mind has been so conditioned to it, that it has begun to believe in the lies, accepting them as the truth. I have seen this trait in many people. When they get an uncomfortable truth as the response to their query, which they themselves would have answered with a “practical lie”, they would not accept it. They will tell you in your face that you’re lying.
