Om! vibes on the water lip - Love, Life &, well, err...laugh!
Welcome to my ‘Jam Pad’ – the only place where chock-a-blocks are appreciated!

Not that I create music here; but I shall try all I can to jazz you up; pop a couple of novice, jest-for-pun words to rock you out of your sanity; scratch the blues out of the mind, kicking to life the RIP rust lying there to bend you in the middle, one way or the other; and rap my invisible pen’s madcap toe in a desperate attempt to somehow touch a chord or two. All, in a hip hop with the tide of words that sometimes seeps on to the shore of my mind and sometimes in its grand elusiveness, flows back to its haven. Nevertheless, i shall go on relentlessly like the waves, inspired by the echoes of Om that mirrors Oneness.

Ignorance is Bliss!

So much information in this world and a single hard disk, to boot! It's 'wicked' to know-it-all, i 'know'. But it's wicked too! Somebody once said '..we should always remain an empty cup to be able to absorb more..'. I try to follow that to the 'T'. But i only managed to go as far as the first one on that! And hey, is that blissfully light or what! Hail the magnanimity of the world wide web that showers information at you, like they say in tamil 'kooraiya pichchitu', when you just boomerang a single word! It could be as meaning less as '!$' or 'zf' or whatever - the worldly web has got it on its rolls and even gives a 'Did you mean this..' like that extra snack with tea to fuel up. It is indeed amazing on one side, every one has the right to know and every one gets the access too. But flip that and you see the side where so much information load-up could do a pari passu harm too. I have a close friend who reads a lot - voracious they say, isn't it - she's all eyes and mind for books - all types, hard bound or virtual. But it doesn't stop just there - it's like she has lots of audio, video memory joggers in, on & around her that just one slight sneeze is enough to nudge all that lists to roll out like a snag; those lists that list sneezing as the most malignant symptom of an unnamed disease that has 62.7% chances of coming into existence in about say 76.2 years from now, in Timbuktu! And before you know she gets to the timbuktuan state herself. For days, she floats on it, off and on, like life is not dopy enough as it is, borrowing trouble from the future (as if unawares of the 'probable' play), until some other read pulls her out of that silo, just to tuck her into another! Then there's me - a hypocondriach, well-woven by the the world wide web! I just about manage, everytime, to wiggle out of that temporary snatch of insanity - thanks to the sense nudge that some people give me! We need to be open alright, but not really keep 'all the doors' open! All open doors mean too much traffic. Through one route. And one way at that! Where's all that going to? Well, perhaps we should look up the net on that too!!
P.S There's a drama add-on to some factual trivia. Any resemblance to anyone is absolutely, asked for!

I do enjoy your style of writing and as i promised will give you the link the 6S's. I think you can certainly do well with making a few submissions and i am sure yours will be picked. "Ignorance is bliss" is yet again a thoroughly enjoyable read, well written, strewn with what i see as humour but could well be just yoru ordinary style of writing!

If you do want me to give you some comments what we euphemistically say "constructive criticism" i think you should focus on lighter topics as well. Your experience trying to unlock your phone this evening or perhaps you gross inability to choose the proper internet connection (he he). I am sure that would be just an enjoyable read :)
