Setting Sun.

I looked up from my Kindle and out the window. The air turbulence was distracting. I wanted to stretch my legs that were getting cramped in the narrow leg space provided these days by airlines. Just a few minutes ago, the view from the window had been drab – blues of the lightest kind withContinue reading “Setting Sun.”

The curve.

How you greet a person is often the lasting impression on their mind about you! But it also does much more for your brain and your hormones. A harried, impatient first look leaves a negative note.

Be a Mercurian and I’d beContinue reading “Blowing Off The Candle.”

The Sun is theContinue reading “Thought Flash #7”

Cosmetics for the Moon?

By 2050 : Mirror, Mirror on the wall! Who’s the fairest of them all? The Moon! Once upon a time, on a full moon night, somewhere in the West, someone may have spent a night like this : Husband (relaxing after a long day of work in his balcony) : I love how peaceful the nightContinue reading “Cosmetics for the Moon?”

Coming Soon : Pill to erase specific memories!

This is not a joke! Scientists have found a way to erase specific memories from the human mind. Before you continue reading this, let me inform you that this post doesn’t evaluate the researches of these scientists. I don’t think we need to discuss how good or bad a turn of events it could lead to but justContinue reading “Coming Soon : Pill to erase specific memories!”
