An everyday state

It’s hard to imagine life without deep, dark moments. Here’s best friend Pacificleo giving advice on how to deal with them.

“The goal is to achieve an everyday state of discontent from a sharp intense pain.”

Hopefully over time that specific discontent would reduce…

Men and women

I’m lucky that some of my best friends are empathetic, inclusive, generous and kind human beings. They usually take a lot of pains to show that they are not, by the way, but sometimes their views on women are so illuminating to me simply because of their gender.

“Women and babies: They take all the opportunities (given to them) and squeeze everything they can out of them.”


“Probably they don’t feel as entitled as men,” qualified the brown boy.

But they are always, always, more intellectual, says Pacificleo, having tried to become one himself just for dates during his social butterfly youth.

Ladies, do you agree? Do you squeeze everything you can out of opportunities? Maybe we do it sub-consciously, I never feel like I do anything with opportunities! But I am clearly intellectual, at least!

TRANSCRIPT

Weekend Art (Kelas)

We went for Bangalore History and couldn’t find it.

BB: Oh it’s not even mentioned here.

We went to Mughal Gardens and it was already shut!

Finally we went to hang out in Rashtrapati Bhavan. And the call of coffee was too strong to ignore.

BB: Not all kelas (flops: pun) – We went for Nityan’s show last night

Me: Trust you to draw a silver lining on my dark cloud…
