A Simple Issue

                                               A Simple Issue
So everyone is starting to leave, go abroad, chase their dreams... and maybe try to chase that pretty girl/boy they just saw. Point is we're all starting to grow up......as the hermits say: "age". Mainly mentally cause some of us go through puberty at like thirty five. Everyone's like flying off through the sunset with their honeys and later little bunnies while I'm sitting here wondering whether I need another spoon of maple syrup on my pancake.
I'm kidding. I am only that jobless on Saturdays because I don't have to wake up early on a Sunday morning.
However it's true, everyone around me who has either Lady Luck or Lady Lakshmi in their lives have basically attained their visas. By my own account, those ladies may just be actual women cause even they reject the simple and caring men.
It is proved that there are actually quite a few people who stay back and have to study in their own town or country when they actually want to go through that learning process in a completely different place altogether. It also can happen that the person has to study something a bit different. This is because of many types of situations. It can be family, it can be finance or it can be both. Let's face it, there are those of us who aren't really getting the extent that we could have gotten if we had more power of position. Obviously it's not like all of us are really depressed about it. Many of us are living through it and trying to eventually get there.
Now just because an issue is on a very personal level and is passable doesn't make it small or unimportant. Saying that the fire was small makes it easy for the firefighters, claiming there's no symptoms makes it easy for the doctor, and so on. They get to move on faster. That doesn't necessarily mean the victim should or even can. Being depressed won't get you abroad so let's not waste that time dawdling. Let's keep on trying I guess.
The irony is this convolution is right now coming from someone who has experience with more confusion than he can understand and all while lazing in one place. However that "lazing" which others use is a word to describe many things and those things are bridged from one common phrase: "Proper and unique observation".
While sitting on that chair you can but look around and see those who had the chance and why they are going. What is it that drove them to get it this early, was it just their dad's huge supply of cash or does the determination and hard work along with planning come as well?
You might be wondering that it's bizarre that the topic is so simple. Well I tell you that it is but yet it's so complex.
Isn't everything like that?

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
