Superpowers-Reading Minds

We have all watched super hero movies and all of us wanted to have some power at some point of time.

One of the super power which most of us wanted was to read minds of people. So what would a person gain if he/she is able to read others. Is it worth knowing what others are thinking. What are the pros and what are the cons?? Is it really possible to know what others are thinking?

Science has advanced so much that there are things like lie detector test which are mostly used on criminals so they can spell out the truth.

But what would happen if we come to know each and every person we meet what they are thinking?? Seems like a great deal. It is said that the monks who are meditating and reached a certain level of consciousness can read anyone’s mind and remain unaffected by what others think of them.

If we come to know that someone is having bad intent for us we could easily ignore that person and be friends with people who actually care for us.

But we are human beings right!! So each one of us will be having negative thoughts and secrets which we don’t want to share with anyone. Suppose a person gets a super power to read anybody’s mind without them knowing. Then that might end up being alone because no one in this world is perfect even the sweetest of sweetest people have some thoughts which are really ugly and disturbing. It would be very difficult to handle things if someone has a weak heart and mind.

What if someone is having some kind of fetish which is disturbing to the other person who can read minds. If a person who can read minds is in love with someone and wants to read the other person, and come to know all they have is bad feelings for you and things you never imagined and never wanted to be true.

What if a person who can read minds gets surrounded by multiple people?? Would he/she will be able to differentiate between own thoughts and the other thoughts which gets mingled with the mind

Reading minds of enemies are a better option that you would be able to plan and take proper action against your opponent as one would not expect much from them. But once you know what your loved ones think then either it would be a gain for a lifetime or pain for a lifetime.

Last but not the least: Mind reading is a bad super power unless used on an enemy nation or personal enemies.

Be Prepared- Not a song but a Political ambition

The dark side depiction of not only Scar but humans too in the song Be prepared from the movie Lion King

I am sure most of us have watched Lion King movie and loved it. It was an awesome movie to watch and feel the emotions like you were Simba for real. It had great songs like the Circle of Life, Hakuna-Matata and Be Prepared.

The song “Be Prepared” was one of the great villainous song. It described each and every evil motives of not only Scar and Hyenas in the movie but also the motives humans have when they are jealous, arrogant and want to harm someone. Hyenas being the group of population cleverly manipulated by their masters for political benefits. This song from the lion king movie depicts most of the political scenarios around the world. Especially during the medivial times and the date range prior to that.Few of the lines are as follows which the Lion Scar and the other hyenas sang:

Be prepared for the murkiest scam
Meticulous planning
Tenacity spanning
Decades of denial
Is simply why I’ll
Be king undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

When I was a kid the first time I saw lion king was Hindi dubbed. And the only song catchy to me was Hakuna- Matata. But Lion King is such an epic movie that you afford to see everytime it is being telecasted. The animated version had a song named “Be prepared”. It was catchy to me. And after that I realized that the song was not for children, it was for the grown ups. As the villian fully depicts a political rivalry for his own brother. Where he wants to kill his own brother and nephew for control over the jungle.

That sounds similar to many of the political scenarios we have had around the world.

It is being said that Kim Jong Un , the North Korean dictator killed his own uncle and step brother. According to historians Ashoka and Khilji eliminated every one from their blood line who could be a threat to their Kingship. European history was the same too. Almost every dynasty politics had a dark side. The Kauravas wanted to kill their cousins for throne in Mahabharata.

Let’s go to a lower hierarchy of society standards. I mean the higher middle class, middle class and the lower middle class. I am sure all of us have heard multiple news about brother killing brother over a property dispute. Son killing father for some money or property.

Attempts to eliminate a deserving was always there in the past due to greed and jealousy.

“A song of greed, jealousy and the lust for power”

Alternatives….

the choices we make now determines our future

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Fourty five year old Shelly while watching a television show went to deep thoughts within herself.

Oh God!! Why did I lose most of my loved ones? Shelly asks the question inside her head. All I tell is reality and people can’t digest,so they leave me right.

All of a sudden the volume of the TV gets increased and Shelly comes back out of her thoughts.

No!!! The says the child in the TV show was being bullied.

The channel switched to another. There the words of the protagonist were “Your reality may be correct according to you but my reality is correct according to me.”

The channel switched again where a teacher says to his student “But you insulted others just to prove yourself right.”

The transmitter changed its frequency again and the channel got changed where Shelly felt that the anchor was personally talking to her. The shows name was “Welcome to the Reality”.

Hi ! I am Tom. And here I am giving you the chance to change your past.

Shelly’s room changed into a restaurant where she sees her ex girlfriend Sofia in the same way they used to meet regularly. Shelly gets a call from her old fling again, she ignored Sofia again for her old fling and was about to leave. Shelly was about to betray Sofia again. This time Sofia says “I left you because you were not trust worthy. You got a chance to change yourself again but you opted what you opted before and I am sorry to say that loneliness is your destiny. Because you betrayed the people who trusted you and never felt guilty or repented for it.”

Before Shelly could think of anything she shifts another point of her life where she was a college student. And she was scolded by her for bunking more than 75 percent of her classes. Out of anger Shelly decides to defame the teacher by filing a fake molestation case. At the present moment also she was scolded by the teacher and thinks of doing the same again. The teacher says to her ” I scolded you because you were like a daughter to me. I scolded you because I wanted that all my students should have a bright career including you. But see what you did. What choice you made and the choice you made for your personal satisfaction ruined my entire life and family. I don’t think you deserve anyone to show you the right path because some people are full of filth inside and you are one of them”

The scenario changed again where she meets a friend with whom she was having argument regarding office related stuff. This time Shelly says to her friend you left me because we had an argument and you did not agree with me. No!! Her friend said. The argument was not even the issue at all. We all have people around us with whom our thinking do not match but we do adjust. I stopped being friends with you because you were disrespecting, dominating, arrogant, untrustworthy not only for me but for almost everyone around us. And you never realised or maybe you realized but never tried to change yourself. You always found the fault in others but never looked within yourself that how you were with others.

“Some people learn from their mistakes and some don’t. The first type of people are respected and the next type is discarded someday or the other.” Choose and act wisely what you want else it will become more hollow and meaningless. I am giving you one more chance. Now it’s your choice to rectify everything what was wrong that shouldn’t have happened. One more wrong choice and your life will be full of miseries.

Shelly gets expelled from the TV show. And again the anchor started his show “Hi ! I am Tom”. Shelly gets to see her ex again. And this time Sophia says her “People don’t change but let’s see what you intend to do”.

Something wrong with humans

Is humanity dead??? No!! Is the answer I want to say. But when you hear incidents which make you disturbed, sad and angry at the same time. It will be true to say that some of the humans are not human anymore.

When I was a kid I wanted to ride on a elephant when we went to a family trip in Jaipur,India. But my father denied may be because it was risky or some other reason. I was little disappointed then but now I am happy that I never mounted on an elephant.

Cruelty on animals is not new. As humans we understand the food chain so let’s not go into the food and Ethics stuff. Cruelty for any animals is wrong. But this article mainly emphasizes at the atrocities on non farm animals.

Few days back there was a viral video on a social media site sparking controversy. Where some foolish people were seen hanging a cat. Just like how a criminal is being hanged till death. But this time the people who were hanging the cat were the real criminals. They were laughing while swinging the dead cat. What kind of people these are……are they mentally sick or something wrong with their upbringing or the friends they hang out with have such mentality.

There are multiple incidents where some morons tie crackers to the tail of a cat,dog and even monkeys. And burn it. What kind of Humans are these?? Are they really humans or some monsters who flaunt themselves as humans.

Just yesterday morning I saw a news article on a social media site where some so called humans made an elephant eat a pineapple full of explosives. She was pregnant and to save herself she went inside a water logged area to get some relief. The explosives were blasted on her mouth and she wasn’t able to eat anything. Two more elephants came for her rescue but she did not come out of the water. After few days she died.

Her post mortem images showed a featus inside her which was more disheartening to see.

It’s trending all over now. Justice for the Elephant but people have become so much greedy that for also personal benefits they have decreased the elephant population. For their tusks. Elephants are chained all their life and made to do work for humans. Decorated for Religious festivals to increase the beauty of the festivals. Keeping wild animals chained or in a zoo decreases their life span and make them mentally unstable and sad.

Elephants have great memory power. They do not forget things easily. And also help orphan ones at their herd. The other two elephants rescuing her were also in tears and emotional connection as one was try to poke his trunk to wake her up or to say the last good bye.

At last “we failed as a human being and keep on failing if these type of inhumane acts are done, we say we are responsible being but in reality we all know if there is no strict punishment for animal abuse,this will continue to happen every single day.”

# Justice for Jumbo. The below images are taken from internet and it shows a lot what words can’t express.

We failed you Lord Ganesh

Little she knew it was a grenade in form of a pineapple

Computer Teacher

As a child most of us have been taught to respect our teachers. And all of us should do it too. But few teachers I have seen for real who were really mean, exploited children for their personal benefits like money and few more things.

Teaching is no doubt a respectable profession but that does not mean that the people who are involved will be good as a human being.

I guess when people grow up and start doing jobs most of the them remember at least some of their teachers either in a good aspect or bad aspect.

It was the month of April, I was late by 10 days to join school as I just came from my native. I was promoted to the second standard from first. I was in a school in Itangar, Arunachal Pradesh, India.

There was a surprise test that day. That too of the computer. Computer was almost new to Indian schools then. I missed my classes for almost a week. So, I didn’t have much idea about the usage.

So the test was really simple. It was just to type your name in the keyboard so it could be displayed on monitor. A really simple one. I was confident that I would do it easily.

Students passed by and then came my turn. I had difficulty searching the first alphabet of my name. Why??? It was a fu*Β£#@g ‘QWERTY’ board. I didn’t knew the concept of the alignment of a keyboard that it was randomly arranged at a specific manner. And I took more seconds to find the alphabet ‘S’. As I thought the sequence would be like A,B,C,D…..and so on.

All of a sudden my teacher got angry. He was in his mid 20s I guess. Tall with mustache. I do not remember his name though. May be it started from an ‘A’ or whatever.

He took a thin stick made up of iron. And all of a sudden he started hitting me at my Calf muscles. He hit me for 3-4 minutes I guess. It was painful but I didn’t cried one single drop. May be I was a freedom fighter in my previous lifeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.I was about to but I didn’t. I always had a lot of self control and patience back then.

When I went back home I saw 3-4 thin lines at my Calf area. It was kind of visible. Exactly I don’t remember maybe it was my sister or my aunt “Mita pishi” who asked what happened to your legs and I exactly said it happened because of the room heater. Which had the covering with almost exact distance of the lines at my Calf area. It was the first lie……of my life. May be I was ashamed of my failure then. As I wasn’t able to perform such a simple test.After a long time I told them. They said I said have said about that.

Sometimes I think I should have complained about that. At least he would have been suspended from the school. Some teachers should have consience that students are not puppets at whom they would take out their mental frustrations. By badly hitting them. It’s not like I have never got any beating during my childhood but this was different. Teachers are the people who inspire children to become successful by their thoughts and teaching. And sometimes slight beating is ok.

Some memories gets imprinted on your mind just like the beating marks .

It would have been a great lesson if instead of hitting me “he would have taught me it’s fine and said I will teach you. Hardly it would have taken 2 minutes of his precious time”.

My Friend Destroyed my Barbie dolls πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

Man I was furious……I was angry……..I was frustrated…….I was devastated….I was Sad……. every emotions dancing over my head at the same time. I was 11 years old then. Angry as a kid, but I never expressed it. Today I am going to write all of them down because things meant a lot for me then. The incident happened in Shillong, India.

I had a friend let’s call her ‘Sun’. We used to play almost every day. She would come to my home or I would go to hers. She used to live at the ground floor with her parents and grandmom. All of them were really nice people.

One day she asked me to give my Barbie dolls and she wanted to play with them. Me being a generous girl gave her 3-4 Barbie dolls. All were expensive ones which were gifted to me on my previous birthdays by my other friends back in Itangar, Arunachal Pradesh. And those were pretty much close to me. Even as a child I always handled all my toys with care and they were almost new even after being played.

Exactly after two to three days later she comes back to return my dolls.

What next I see was utter disappointment. I was almost about to cry but I controlled myself that day.The hairs of the dolls were burnt and looked really rough. The neck was broken. It was looking like “she was playing some criminal saas- bahu (mother in law- daughter in law) drams with them and all the dolls looked like they died in a fire out of suffocation”.

I did not say anything to her. I just felt I never took any of her toys and she took mine to do this blunder. I really don’t know if she broke the toys out of jealousy or if she was really playing.

And the greatest thing was “she didn’t even apoloziged”.
