The Obsessed.

“Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.” ― Franz Kafka The problem with mercilessly following our intense obsessions is the relationships that we leave on the wayside. The fun- times that we discard at... Continue Reading →

The Bright Side.

Hiya folks! How has 2017 been treating ya guys thus far? All 18 or so hours of it. Our little family isn't one to 'ring in the new year' with festivities or parties. I rarely send out new year messages or cards. And the first of January is just another bloody ordinary day. No resolutions.... Continue Reading →

Have done it before (conveniently forget facts- was then a surgical trainee, living alone, with no responsibilities to speak... Continue Reading →

It is all a lie folks. All the idioms and phrases and euphemisms. All the wise- men -speak. All the "elder's wisdom". We are fed lies and half- truths from the moment we are born. All meant to keep us in check. Decrees, rules, conventions and principles to rein in the innately unscrupulous human race.... Continue Reading →

Bringing back some order…

Things may change around here. Apparently, this blog is becoming too random for comfort. So the Husband says. Is it, folks? It started off as  Qatar Expat Diaries, turned into Myriad Interests cum Travelogue. That then morphed into Dr J's External (Public) Brain/ Journal. Now it seems to be veering off on to the Beauty...

The end of the world…

  The end is near lads. Life seems rudderless. Oh Lord, how am I to survive! I'm lost and lonely. Friends faraway, hope ye' all doing good. Mum, hope breakfast was good, And hope Dad didn't throw a fit. My other Mum, hope things have quietened down, Hope Kerala is not in chaos anymore. Wonder... Continue Reading →
