Its been five days since I have been here, and yet it seems I have lived in snow covered land for eternity. I had never hoped to see so much of snow within such short period of time and that too when I was least prepared.
It seems the regions snowfall and the newly whitewashed hostels have some uncanny similarities. Both, for instance, were aimed at covering up all of our filthy surroundings with an overall cover not paying any heed to actually paying heed to take it out in the first place. It seems when the situation goes out of control, we tend to cover each and every aberration with a single stroke. I suspect our inclination to fall on our ignorance in times of great introspection plays a big role in this.
Apart from playing in the snow and loathing the dampness, I have been reading a new book “The Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku”. Its a wonderful book in which the author predicts technologies that might emerge based on recent innovations and research in the coming century. From extending our age to having powers associated with gods of mythology, he predicts our future to be more controlled and dominated by technologies. Its a wonderful read, specially to someone who believes in the goodness of the human race to somehow despite all the odds overcome its frivolous shortcomings.
I have also betrayed my self imposed ban on eating meat, that too at the earliest possible event. But I would like to lay the blame on the weather and still hope to one day become a full vegetarian.
It seems that longer you get accustomed to a particular system, easier it is to do things in a manner that is almost subconscious. Same thing happened this semester . The same mundane process with its almost arcane rules and procedures now through rugged practice has become easier than depicting the back of my hand.
This is the entire story, as far as the initial 2 days back into college are concerned. I have been mostly preoccupied with re-shifting things back into my newly whitewashed hotel, which to my utter dismay, is bright pink. The damage done by those workers in these vacations seems to me to be more than any repair work that they have done. Ranting about this wouldn’t help me so I’ll move on.
Ok. So Why I made this blog?. There are a few things that I wish to achieve by this
A) Hope to find a medium that can help me communicate with you and mom.
B) Finally force you onto using internet (I know to much of your utter dislike) and getting used to it.
C) I have practically no better critic of my writing than you, so I hope that this will help me get better.
Now the Wordlist is an area of concern, with its fresh snowfall and the damning rain, we’ve had some frequent power outages and thus internet has been up and down several times. But still I try to manage a few words here and there.
Steinbeck said that a good performer/artist,knows when to to take an exit. So this would culminate my first post, which I hope you enjoy reading (and as much as I may wish against, will be a topic of your conversation with others)
