Teaching Blues

Posted by Krishna KBS on April 20, 2015 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Sometimes I wonder...Now, don't get heckled by the beginning; I don't mean to weary you with the wonders of the world or wander without getting to the wonder that I am wondering about.


I frankly seem to be the one that is heckled...but anyway...

As I was saying, sometimes I wonder is it worth teaching?

Now, you may ask: Do I wonder if it is worth teaching a particular subject; or teaching a particular class; or teaching as a profession; or teaching in a holisti...

Pointless Existence or Existential Point?

Posted by Krishna KBS on April 17, 2012 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (1)

Sometimes I just wonder why we carry on doing what we are doing. Whether it is being in a profession orin a relationship or plain carrying on with our lives -- meaningless as they are.

What makes me wonder all the more is that we carry on doing things that we do not like to do. We carry on doing things such as going to an office which does not appeal to us or staying in a relationship that stfiles us or studying for a career that we loathe.

Why do we do these unreasonable th...

Is life a gift?

Is it?

I keep hearing from various people on a daily, nay! hourly basis that life is a gift, and that we should be careful of what we do. According to this thesis, --- and I'm not saying outright that the thesis is stupid or otherwise....right now --- life is God's gift, and human life is the pinnacle of existence.

Pinncale of existence? Really?

However, before getting caught in that particular mire, here's a bigger one: People along with lecturing on how we shou...

Love & Marriage: Are they Antonyms?

Posted by Krishna KBS on February 15, 2008 at 9:42 AM Comments comments (3)

It's been a while since I posted anything. Almost a year.
I can say that I have been busy, and hence did not find the time to do it. But I would be lying.
So, does it mean I was lazy?
Well, frankly -- the answer is 'yes' and 'no'.
It's not just I was lazy -- though I do admit that I was -- but also the fact that there was not anything about which I felt strongly, and anything that I felt on which I could come up with something new and original to say.
And well, who want...

Happiness = ??

Posted by Krishna KBS on March 2, 2007 at 11:22 AM Comments comments (5)

What is happiness?
Is anyone ever happy?
Does happiness spring from being lucky?
And, before we forget, what is meant by 'being lucky'?
Is it something like achieving things without deserving them? (But let's not discuss about luck here -- That's too unlucky!!).

Too many, too many questions --- but no answers!!
Or there are answers, but are they satisfactory? Will they make everyone happy??

Happy... happiness...Which brings us to our original query -- "H...

Gods must be Cozy

Posted by Krishna KBS on February 24, 2007 at 9:54 AM Comments comments (1)

It is fashionable to say that the gods are crazy..
Or should I say Gods? Heck! Does it matter?
I dont know...And frankly, dont care.

If there is a god -- which is a bit hypothetical -- he/she/it/whatever shouldnt mind if people dont give them too much respect and fear. As gods should be kind and concerned.
But are gods kind? Are they concerened about what happens to us?

Of course, we cant be sure that gods ought to be kind and concerned. After all, who has seen...

The Art of Dying: Why do we live?

Posted by Krishna KBS on November 13, 2006 at 6:43 AM Comments comments (3)

The following note is actually a reply that I had written yesterday to a post in a website, on a topic that is quite close to my heart. I do not why; but feel like sharing it with you --- Whoever you are..

It is about a topic that I feel strongly about. There are not many things that I feel strongly or passionately about; so, when something of this sort turns up I become ridiculously passionate and emotional.

Is it a good thing to be passionately ridiculous or... well.. ridi...

A life less known

Posted by Krishna KBS on October 13, 2006 at 8:54 AM Comments comments (6)

Yes...Life is a misery..a unresolved unanswered question.
And yes! If it is answered, more the misery...more the sorrow...and more...NEVERMORE!

A life less certain cannot be imagined; as it is not possible. If there is one thing that is certain and true of this life and this world, it is that life is full of uncertainities.

One does not like to accept these things..even think about these issues. However, we are forced. God! for the life of a dog!! ...
