Quinine For The Creature

Get it on Amazon My collection of Poetry is now available on Amazon. These are selected best from poetry that I have written over two decades and more recently in the last year. I hope that you find it interesting and thought-provoking, which was my intent. Reading once might be simple, but re-reading each will provide more insight into the inner meaning.  Snippet from within:  I picture a tree where little people grow, Swaying towards the angelic glow, Blue poppy fields with psychedelic meadows, Embrace yourself, the starship comes ashore. I am always available for any queries you may have at Link to download:  on Amazon


It felt like the angel’s fingers were dangling in front of his face, and he was compelled to try the divine taste. Though he suddenly realized that his face had a similar structure on the front, as that of a carrot in a disguise, so he paused for further consideration before making an attempt to bite his own nose off. This was just the beginning of the day for Aryl. Aryl was a far-sighted, bright minded, affluent unicorn who unbeknownst to himself was one of the most magical and beautiful creatures of this universe. - This is a brief of the story.

Disintegrating the Beatles

A few years ago I had disintegrated the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles for my university class midterm. Obviously, I am as much of a lay man as any other, but just have had a keen interest in Beatles and their music since a very young age. I have revamped the same and share it for your reading pleasure. This was originally written on 20 April 2008. The midterm asked us to evaluate the songs of any album and then restructure the album listing as per what we thought was more suitable for the songs and flow of music. In order to evaluate the songs and structure I created a few metrics that would help differentiate one song from the other. The criteria were ‘ Happiness Quotient ', ‘ Musical Value and Effect ', ‘ Lyrical value and content ' and a ‘ Craziness/Catchiness Bonus '. Each criterion (except Craziness Bonus) is on a scale of 1 to 10. The Craziness bonus (1 or 2) is given to a song that I feel stands out amongst other songs and ha

Closeness in the time of Cholera

Great Britain for India, Donald Trump for the Democrats, Iran and North Korea for most of the world, and Coronavirus COVID-19 for all of the world.  It takes a great adversary to bring together hundreds of millions of people together. It might not be seen, it might not be felt, but it may be within us. Today, we are fighting the COVID-19 coronavirus that started from China but has now spread throughout the world in a very short span of time. It's significant to realize that in these troubled times countries must collaborate and provide transparent information to one another, whether friend or foe, to ensure that the virus is eradicated and isn't able to spread further, to protect themselves and the rest of humanity. There is one common adversary today. That is the reason why all have come together. It was inevitable. This is human nature. We need a reason, we need meaning, we need fear. This is what the Bible predicted, this is what all other scriptures write about.

Utopia? Yes please.

Utopia is a place? Does it exist? This question takes me back to the time of the aboriginal tribes and the first bipeds. Aboriginal tribes had a way of maintaining peace in their communities. They were one of the first. They were learning the ways of the world and the ways to survive. They were not developed. They didn't arrive at the information age. They were simply trying to not get beaten or eaten. They helped their tribe by keeping everyone else out. If you were an individual colonist, it was likely that you would face serious danger, as they felt threatened by your presence (rightly so). However, if you were a group of colonists who could in some miraculous way reason with them, they would eventually come to terms with your proposal and comply, allowing you to potentially co-exist peacefully with them. But is that what happened? Do we still live in that era? The point of contention even in modern society is about who owns the land and about many other virtual constr
