There’s a saying among us – “Surplus of anything is wrong”!
And I agree to all its versions. It stands true for everything we touch or feel. And as the prompt is about information, I’ll talk about information and how it depreciates all our prior understanding of the topic. And this happens around me all the time. While it’s paramount to understand every aspect of everything that we deal with, over-indulging invariably reduces its charm and often times, its enigma. It’s no longer fun to deal with or indulge in, rather an already boring and mundane task.
But then, some people are built that way. They love discussing and to such an extent that they’ll discuss, till the rubber comes off the tyres, about things that really don’t even blow air on them. They believe in the saying – “All Information is Useful”! Think about the chatter that these morons can make, scares the crap out of me… TRUST ME!
Now think about the pitiable souls (Yours Truly, in this case) that have to hear their discussions day in and day out, about such things. Here’s an example:
Think about discussing properties all day long or stock markets. Both of them deal with your money directly, money that I don’t have and yet have to hear about. I’m buying so-and-so-stock or how about the property on the east wing of a god-forsaken-piece-of-land-that-may-someday-spew-gold!
Trust me, my world revolves around certainty. If it isn’t certain, my interest drops off a cliff. And think about the 100 million worth of properties or 10 million worth of stocks that I don’t have and may never have, and yet have to hear about all day long like senseless crows cawing in my ears. I just can’t care lesser for them.
So please, spare me of the information I don’t need. When my time comes and it definitely will, I may seek you for advice but till then, JUST BACK OFF and leave my ears alone!
“VIEWS SPLASH” – A Play Ground!
Like all things that take time coming into a shape and size comfortable for them, “VIEWS SPLASH” is doing the same. I’m writing under this name since 18 months now and here are a few things I’ve come to realize about this name –
1. It stands for freedom – of speech, of will, of thoughts, of words.
2. It stands for rebellion – against crimes, against corrupt politicians, against atrocities untold.
3. It stands against judgement – it doesn’t look at what you’ve achieved. It looks at what you want to do and the path chosen.
4. It’s free flow of information (when needed).
What I’ve not answered though is the pivotal question – “Is this a personal blog”? I like to think it isn’t. It’s a place where I practice writing creatively. It’s a place that has seeds sown to raise the tree of my dreams – a tree of words. And in doing so, I write mostly about my life because special topics need special words. It’s all about diction. Proper diction can give special meaning to pieces that will otherwise remain meaningless.
Zero to Hero 201 Challenge – Task #2 – Branding
Today, after getting the hell bored from my previous theme, I decided to make a serious effort into converting my blog into a more usable form. The focus was getting links into sight and the ease of reaching better articles, articles that you guys have rated better and more people would like to read them.
I had pushed 2014 theme on and off and trying what I could do with it that goes perfectly with the theme colors and the provided layout.
So, please bear with me for a few days while I get the perfect thing going. I may keep changing backgrounds and theme colors to go with it, but that’s where it’ll stop. The layout will remain the same.
Holy hell, it’s so hard to meet perfection for free!
Please do let me know, if the transition is to better or worse… I’ll be waiting for responses.
I see them. I see them everyday. In my TV, on my FB wall, Pinterest, Twitter and quite a lot everywhere around me. Yeah, right. I’m jealous. People having all sorts of fun all the time, posting pictures, the sun, the moon, the stars, the sea, the mountains, the lakes, the oceans, orange, green, blue, buildings with immaculate architectures. Why do we post everything on Facebook, twitter or blah blah??? Having fun is fine but we create albums only to share. Share – I guess thats the answer most people will give to my questions. People who fail to understand that all that they are doing is giving someone and something completely unknown the power to control their information, some of whom may be very personal. Doesn’t it scare you?
