Following a site revamp, I’ve turned this place into a content hub for my work. All of my work – be it articles about the unpopular, but more logical side of everything; non-niche articles; Quora answers; or short stories – will be gathered here. To sort through the content, use the category drop down to your right (or at the bottom if you’re on a mobile device) and select what you want to read. From now on, you can expect something nearly every day – yay!

By now, you probably know that I don’t buy into things easily. I try to look into them, and a lot of the times, I spot the rubbish lying below. I’ve talked about brain gym and meditation. I have proven that extinction doesn’t have to be bad, and have asserted the value plastic bags bring to the environment.
And there is a lot more to come.
But all the while, I’ve wondered why people believe this stuff. Why they are so gullible. Here is the solution to the mystery that’s bugged me for so long.
He did some pretty horrible things, but he did a trickle of good too
Adolf Hitler, how his name is pronounced will always be a great mystery — ‘A-dolf’, or ‘a dolf’?
But there is one thing for certain that everyone agrees on — he was a horrible, terrible person with nothing good in him. But let’s address that, shall we? I personally disagree. Despite his crimes, he did do more than a little good for the world (this in no way suggests that his crimes can be forgiven or that I am a Nazi sympathiser. I simply try to look on the other side of things).
Apparently, both of them together aren’t impossible (and it’s really good)
Admit it — we all want more hours in the day. Twenty-four just aren’t enough. And the truth is, we don’t even have twenty-four! We actually have somewhere near twelve to fourteen (assuming you get a good night’s sleep). I was fed up of this. I needed more time. So I crafted a solution.
Since three weeks now, I have implemented this pattern of life (sorry if that sounded terribly cliché), and to most, it would sound like I’m a complete maniac. But honestly, it’s been amazing.
You have no doubt heard “Ladies first” being repeated over and over again throughout your life. It used to be an expected courtesy, and now it’s occasionally used in jest. But have you ever stopped and wondered where the phrase came from?
Maybe you thought it stemmed from a chauvinistic society who though women could not perform to the standard of men, and hence they were given the right to try things first.
A short mystery/adventure story | Maybe I Will – 2
The moon signalled it was midnight, and a dry wind blew, ruffling Craig Huffington’s hair. He stood to one side of the road, arm out, thumb up — the typical hitch hike position. With a name like that, most people thought he came from a wealthy family, with a posh background and a lavish lifestyle. That was only two-thirds true though. Yes, he came from an affluent family with a swish background. But he did not live an unstintingly relaxing lifestyle. Being cast out of the house did that to you.
Craig’s family was part of a tribe. And tribes had enemies. No one really knew why the tribes hated each other. These alliances were formed long ago, longer than anyone cared to admit. But they were followed religiously nonetheless. Craig made the mistake of fraternising with the enemy. And he faced the consequences.
