Word of the Week #8:


Have you ever felt like you are in seventh heaven, and the puny problems of the mortal world just do not seem to faze you?

It is kind of how Thor would feel, roaming around the realm of Midgard, commonly known to humans as “Earth”.

Just the feeling that of knowing that despite what happens, however many weird robot guys may attack you, at the end of the day, you will be home in time to watch Kohli bat in the First Qualifier of IPL 2016…

lt is often considered a hallmark of youth: the complete conviction in one’s abilities, and the simple assumption that the best case scenario is also the most probable scenario…

Of course, the heat faced throughout life tends to temper even the most unyielding. And grown-ups will argue that this is the best thing you can experience, in your preparation for adulthood… I have my doubts about this argument, but that discussion is for another day.

For now, we end things by quoting the last lines of my favourite manga series… You see, I have a thing for short monologues…

A lesson without pain is meaningless,
For you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return.
But once you overcome it and make it your own,
You will gain a heart made Fullmetal.

-Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist

Well, it loses something in the translation, but you get the feel, yeah?
