I really wanted to start this post with a "there are two types of people..." cliche but I chose not to do that. That was because I realised that every person, at some point, comes across a unique kind of problem - a small one.Ever had one of those problems that weren't large enough so you couldn't share them publicly. You play the conversation in your head a thousand times and it always ends on this,"That's not even a real problem.

This generation is full of retards. You've heard this statement a thousand times before and you just read it again. It's about cultivating taste this time. Taste as in preference and choice for anything. Be it music, movies, books or anything else.If you've watched While We're Young (2014) starring Ben Stiller, you might remember the following quote: Why, you should see this guy's record collection - it's Jay-Z, it's Thin Lizzy, it's Mozart. His taste is democratic. It's "The Goonies" … [Read more...] about Did Piracy and Streaming Produce a Generation of Retards with No Taste?

However, some of us who have not had a tryst with cancer in their immediate vicinity often fail to realize the magnitude of the issue. For those of us in this group, there are awareness campaigns and movements. One such movement is No Shave November which is focused on cancer awareness and sensitization for men.Every November millions of people grow their beards, … [Read more...] about [Memoir] I First Heard of Cancer in Eighth Standard
