Of Newton,Bernouli and the side effects of their discoveries

Newton , they say, discovered gravity when an apple fell on his head.I sometimes cant help, but wonder  when my imagination goes wild …  If, instead of an apple falling, he witnessed a teeny weeny screw falling instead.. Would he have searched for the screw, or analyzed the hows and why of its falling?

A lot of things today work based on gravity, Bernoulis principle, and other great discoveries made by equally great people. The Laws outlined below are some of the side effects of their application to our daily lives .(Feel free to add more to the list!)

A status update i saw on Facebook  said –

“My daughter turns 17 today. If she were in Delhi, she’d probably be a target for lecherous men. In the US, where she is, some gun-toting madman, perhaps. Can we live on the moon, please?”

Good idea , I thought- send all men to Mars and women to Venus.. At least we’d live in peace!!

Start With Your Pen

The insecure man is a fledgling,
He fights,
Scraps
And scrounges for respect.

His muscles may be big,
His arms – strong
But you can see
In his heart and his eyes:
He is empty,
But for the wild chase of a desperate man.

He sees what he wants in the hearts of others
And believes confrontation is key.
A primitive shove
Lands him in the fray.

He may have won the fight,
But the fear is still in him:
Like a buried seed
Growing into his personality.

Everything he tries shoves him
Further away from his transient goal:
Plunging him deeper
Into cold insecurity.

What If ….?

Of late, I’ve been pondering over this thought that struck me as I was reading my novel one day… Looking around me as i went out for a stroll, I realized that were always being bombarded with information / rules/ events that we do not choose to be bombarded with most of the time .. and I wondered  … What If nobody taught you anything?
