Mind:

I was walking on wet sand when I noticed the water drying up wherever I stepped. It felt very strange. As I walked further I saw bright red crabs running back into their burrows. I have to say their sense of vibration is pretty good! This is where it starts to get weird- I felt sad seeing them run away from me! Questions started to emerge. Do I really belong here? If I do belong here then why is everything running away from me?

Brain:

Good old depression is back! The first thing about water and sand is pure physics. You know that. So stop whining.

Mind:

First of all, fuck you. Second of all, how are you still alive? I thought you were paralysed from all the sleep deprivation I gave you.

Brain:

Yeah about that, we’ll be shutting down tomorrow sometime between 4 and 6. So don’t be in a meeting or whatever. And stop talking to that girl after midnight. Its not worth it. Pretty soon your organs will start to shut down. And by the way, stop eating all that junk before you sleep. I’ve been trying to contact Liver since last week. Dude is not even picking up. And by the way, start talking to people. There are good people out there. Stop being a whining looser all the time.

How dare you you slimy ball of noodles? Wait… you’re right. I’ll take care of it. Hang in there. In the meantime, take a look at these pictures I took. Damn! I am a pro!

Trip to Buddhist Temple

wp-1485715579989.jpeg

The epic adventure begins after I purchase the ticket to enlightenment (in this case a coin).

I arrived at the temple with a feeling of accomplishment. I had used nothing but google maps to get there. As I walked towards the temple I heard the sound of bells ringing. There was a “templish” smell in the air. In my mind, I am thinking about making friends with the good old monks and maybe even do some quiet and peaceful meditation with them. When I get there I see these huge magnificent doors. Only problem- they were closed. It was past the temples opening hours. I requested the security guard to give me a peak into the temple but he was quite stern. So I was banned from entering the temple. Tis the season of bans after all.

Sorry if you came here expecting to see pictures of a Buddhist temple. Life’s not fair. Yeah that’s right. Not to get too philosophical but “The light at the end of the tunnel” gets switched off sometimes for maintenance. But there still is a light and I will visit it some other time. Have an enlightening week. That’s too much usage of the word “light”. Damn the Illuminati. Here are some pictures I took on my way back.

This last picture was not easy to take. It is the one and only picture that was taken during the creation of the universe. Wonder why the creator is wearing a helmet.

These are all tombs. Park Street Cemetery, Kolkata

Now for some quiet and soothing music to give you a feel of what the place sounds like. Try viewing the pictures with the music playing. Its a whole different feel!
