NONSENSE FEAR OF BEING CAUGHT IN A FEAR DIVIDE

I was trying to go through the daily paper while minimising the shaking produced by the uneven movement of the bus. It's a difficult process but you tend to master things with a little practice...that is specially so when a headline like this catches your imagination...

"Removing A Single Gene Turns Rodent Into Fearless Explorer, Top-Notch Team Finds"...
This discovery may well prove applicable to humans, the report added...

So in near future we can expect this revelation to lead us to some gene therapy that will put the word fear and its synonyms "no more in use", showing them way to "museum of words".

But that's not so simple; cells in the "left" hemisphere of my brain contradicted the "right". Just imagine, the therapy becoming a reality. No doubt it will be a costly affair, affordable only to the privileged ones of the society.

As a result in a few days there will be segregated between the "fearless rich" and "timid poor"...the chances of Marx's dream of "rule of a proletariat" will become even more distant, more distant than that of the pole star...

I was enjoying, playing with weird thoughts...smiled silently, observing my brainwaves entangled in a debate with some funny logic...

"Don't you think the researchers will have to get the approval of the governments to continue this type of studies on human beings?"

I tried to continue the string...

"There will be protests, demonstrations against such studies, making it difficult for the governments to allow these activities."

After running after "senses" for hours, days and months, at times non-senses can give you a good respite, at least till you reach office and start mingling with the developments (?) related to "Volcker Report", "Bird flu", "Abu Salem"...

That may lead to anarchy. For one, nobody will fear to break the law anymore. Punishment and death cease to be deterrents to crime.

Reminder alert of the cell phone dragged me out of sleep at 5:30 in the morning. The screen flashed FMC...FMC...FMC

"Friday Morning Class? Oh shit!"

(It's one of the hundreds of things; I am trying to absorb either into my daily or weekly schedule thanks to my new profile in a KPO.)

That means I will have to reach office 45 minutes earlier than a normal day, sit patiently in the conference room, either listening to the lifeless preaching of an unmotivated 'motivation expert' (something I hate from the bottom of my heart) or struggle to make sense out of a presentation by a Chartered Accountant or an MBA on some topic of their interest. I am the odd man out in such classes. But attending them is mandatory.

While concepts of management always tickle my senses, I feel awkward listening to CAs. The Topics they discuss hardly make any sense to me. So I have find out various ways of utilizing the time I feel I am wasting. When there's no other opti…

TDL

Here's a spur-of-the-moment struggling to live an organized life. Perhaps it's like a creeper trying to standalone, imitating a tree.

Suddenly I realized everything was going out of control. You have ten things to do, all of them having nearly the same dead-line. My gut feeling was that I have to rearrange my mind-set and upgrade it to 'multi tasking enabled' mode.

And I started using an organiser...get the habit of preparing ' To-Do-List'. Preparation of TDL before start working became a daily ritual. At times I have had to drag myself an extra bit to meet the self commitment. But the results of doing so in the first few days really satisfied me...

It does not take long for the nuptial to be over. I found myself revising and rearranging the TDL many time a day to meet the demand. No matter how hard I tried, there were left-over of the day's TDL, for the next day. TDLs started piling up.

Now I am a silent helpless spectator, of the TDL getting elongated every d…
