Infidelity or the One Trick Pony

Random messages that make you more alive to the moment.

Strangers that make you burst into a smile.

Sundry notes that make you breeze through a terribly blue day.

How many of us allow these instances to be a part of our mundane living? More often than not, it is blasphemous to even consider responding/accepting/encouraging these tokens that transforms humdrum boring life into a spark.

Perhaps we are past that age of innocence where everything was fascinating, where life in all its colors was worth an exploration, where you took time to appreciate your environs.

Guilt seems to the predominant motif we thrive in..guilt for not achieving as much as X,Y,Z; guilt for not earning enough money; guilt for not doing enough, choose your poison – corporate life or life per se, your folks, your friends, your pets and the list is endless.

This fascinating experiment by the Washington Post demonstrates this. Though the article is rather lengthy it is a telling read about our self-absorption, our narcissism and self-involvement. Don’t we have time anymore?

Are we all a one-trick pony?


The Pump Phenomena

Clinton,Tiger Woods, Charlie Sheen, Shiney Ahuja, and now Kahn & Schwarzenegger…the list it looks is endless. Now I won’t go into the common thread here. The news mill is overflowing with info and if you don’t know what I’m  refering to well where have you been?? MARS!!

The Pump phenomenon is back again!!!

Instead of pumping iron/muscles/brains these men have been busy pumping their shaft, it seems.

Gross eh?

What is even more gross is their women (wives in most instances) coming out in voluble support claiming their husbands were as white as cow’s milk. Huh…hello?!

These very women who claim or purportedly show themselves to be THINKING women and support women’s lib, social causes and appear to be socially aware actually came out in defense of their men when the first instance of infidelity/sexual misdeamenour was revealed…. HUH..hello?!!

Did they read the Mahabharatha to become Gandhari??

Would someone explain to me why women chose to be supportive in all the wrong instances or are they genetically conditioned to be this way??!
