The Naughty Eraser

by sajin on August 19, 2013

Once upon a time there lived a paper, an eraser and a pencil. They were good friends but Eraser was very naughty. He used to erase whatever pencil writes or draws on the paper.

One day Pencil wanted to draw a nice picture on the paper, but the eraser still erased. He kept on disturbing the pencil. Pencil got angry and poked Eraser with his sharp tip. Eraser started crying and he said sorry to Pencil and Paper. He told them “I will not do such mischiefs in future, please forgive me and be my friends”. Paper and Pencil became happy and they lived happily as best friends.

If it’s bad, it must be true

October 27, 2012

Looking at tweets and FB shares by friends, am surprised by the above theory which most seems to go by – if it’s bad, it must be true. Put a conspiracy theory out there, people readily share it without verifying the facts. Once couple of your friends share a lie, it starts appearing like a […]

Thailand – DOs and DONTs

September 12, 2012

Went on a Thailand trip recently for a little over a week. There were some pretty good places and experiences. But then, extensive tourism has made the place like no other. Made us think it would have been good to know these from someone who went earlier and not repeat the mistakes. So here is […]

We are not them

August 9, 2012

It’s a good initiative by IRCTC to introduce paperless ticketing. Was initially thinking how many people will use it.
