I am from Mars, where are you from?

Origin of life.. It’s always an interesting, but confusing thought.

There are many theories on the origin of life.

It is heard that Aristotle was the first to attempt to define life. And many more theories evolved later, but always ended up with some loopholes.

The more we pin down to know the same, the more it gets deviated.

We may never be able to solve the puzzles, “Where are we from?”

Or if the life could be recreated from scratch, then we may have the answer.

Perhaps, if life didn’t originate on earth at all..? Oh.. can it happen like that..? Might be, it was all done by some aliens way back. They placed the DNA life seeds on our earth.. hmm.. Then who created that alien..? How did they originate..?

Where is my shawl, let me cover my head. I don’t want to think anymore.. Seems some aliens are watching me..

Are you a soft parent, Are you soft son/daughter?

Are you a soft mom/dad..?

or

Are you soft son/daughter..?

Nowadays we often hear words like ‘ I didn’t have time’ or ‘I was running short of time’ or ‘sorry, I am a bit delayed’

Well, time management is not my todays’ concern.

But we are often forced to compromise certain things in life due to ‘this lack of time issue’. And the most easily compromised is ‘child-parent relationship’ in today’s stressed life.

Every parent can recall a time when their frustration level went through the roof, and their emotional reactions to their children were not adequate to the situation.

Parents won’t understand that their timelessness is changing their routine life or raising their temper even for small small things in the family. And kids are often their victims because they are the naughty boxes.

Kids are supposed to be naughty, that’s their birth right. So yelling may stop them for a moment from their naughtiness. But they too have an emotional heart and it needs to be realized how badly the little heart is affected..!!

The situation is under control how quickly the parent presses the pause button. There are two things to be taken care after pressing the button

  • Limit the impulsive outbursts as far as possible
  • Take a genuine effort to restore the condition after an outburst.

After all, every parent wants their kids to be grown up as emotionally healthy persons.

And the situation is just reversed when the kids are grownups and by that time the parents would have become grandparents…now it’s the kids turn to show their timelessness and rudeness upon their parents.. And the cycle just repeats.. Even if people have time, sometimes they just pretend to be busy to give a five minutes call to his/her mom/dad.. They just pretend to be unaware of the emotions of their “home-alone parents”

So where is the exit..?

Ask oneself

Are you a soft mom/dad..? or Are you soft son/daughter..?

Prejudice Barriers, ആരാ വിധിച്ചത്?

“It is like that”

“Do it as such”

Many a times we hear these kinda words. And we let ourselves to be ruled by those prejudiced notions.

We are not born to be stereotyped, but somehow got tuned in that way.

And very rarely a counter question is asked “why is it like that?”

Okay, leave it if you are trying to make prejudice wall sturdier. Be a stereotyped and use the ink of prejudiced notions to build your world, after all it’s a great time saver, no…;) you don’t have to over think.. just need to respond based on the preconceived notions. And live peacefully the rest of your life in that stereotyped world. (Ah!)

Through the eyes of an innocent 8 year old

There are 6 homes in a compound.. Definitely, not the congested ones as in todays residential villas.  It may take around 1 to 2 kids’ minutes (they won’t walk, no.. they can only run ) to reach the other end if a kid starts from one end of the compound. And many such compounds before you reach a main junction. None of those compounds are segregated by todays kind of stone walls, instead there had some natural walls decorated with hibiscus, henna and all. (It was our hiding place while playing hide and seek….shhhhh. ) And a route in between.  And we had a pond also there in our compound. There was a field on the other side of the pond. We go there after school hours, do fishing and do all kinds of naughtiness with mud and water….

The houses are still there, the pond is still there, the remains of the field is still there, but definitely not that 8 year old girl..

Time passes, we also have to move with that. Or else we should have to travel in the speed of light to put a pause for time..

Replace your lying mirror with an honest one

The mirror told her, “How gorgeous you are!”

Her mind whispered, “Why not a selfie?”

Tried in different angles, different poses, and different looks.

But nothing came out well.

She thought, “Hmm, it’s time to replace my phone”

Someone else whispered, “Better you replace the lying mirror with an honest one

Don’t sleep in the North-South directions

My grandmother used to advise me to sleep in the East West direction. Initially, I thought it to be some traditional belief of old generation. Later on I came to know about the magnetic field acting behind the same.
Yes, the North-South direction of Earth has a big role to play here.

Earth is a big magnet. The magnetic field lines of earth spread across North-South directions.

And you know, our body acting as a conductor, pass current while lying in the same field directions of earth.  This current passing through our brain can cause pressure on it leading to haemorrhages and paralytic strokes depending upon the strength of our body system.

But still I doubt..is the Earth’s magnetic field so strong to have any noticeable impact on the currents in our brain ?
