Brilliant minds to special hearts

Brilliant minds to special hearts

The world achieving technological advancements and modernization. Yet the thought process is orthodox. Reaching for the moon with open hands but never looking within with folded arms. Aspiring to reach the peaks of success but failing to acknowledge the lows of mankind. Dreaming to change the world without and not the world within. Loving things and using people. Cricket match being national pride but bravery and martyrs of the army just mere dutiful men. Criminals, just another person roaming freely with the cases piled up in courts. The road not taken is the road not existing for the society. Feminism being empowerment of women and not equal power to both men and women.  Religion is meant to differentiate and not unite mankind. 
Judging each other on basis of opinions formed and not experiences earned. 

Environment is a dumping ground and not the gift of past to future generations. Politicians not the leader of nations but conquers of wealth. Honesty is the best policy to "not adopt" in modern times
Tit for tat is followed in menial games but rape cases and acid attacks are borne silently.
Men are taught to not display emotions and yet feel so deeply so as to not hurt anyone else. Egos carrying more weightage and compassion being a trait to be displayed just for the unfortunate and not on oneself. Making a living and forgetting to live. The race to perfection is more supported than the path to excellence. Competing to come first and not excelling to outdo oneself. 
The world requires not brilliant minds to conquer but special hearts to enlighten the path of humanity and righteousness.

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…



“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”  ― Franz Kafka
It is said that the world’s two most prized gifts are the love of a woman and the beauty of youth. While we always talk about women, today let’s take this opportunity to talk about youth. Youth is the most treasured trait that a person can have, without it a person can be 45 but feel like 85. Youth or young people around the globe are always treated as not only the “future” of humankind but also looked upon as the envied lot, as their energy levels are still at their peak. So let’s take this time to learn a bit more about them:
1.The definition varies from country to country. According to the United Nations, “Youth” are the people who are of ages 15-24. However different countries have different definitions. In Nigeria youth are termed to be people between ages 18 and 35. In India, according to the National Youth Policy 2014, …

Teacher, often described as our friend, philosopher and guide, plays a vital role in everyone’s life. A teacher has the capability to guide his or her students and give them immense courage and inspiration. We all remember at least one teacher from our school throughout our lives, isn’t it? It is because he or she has been able to put an impact in your life. Teaching is an art and an educator needs to find several methods to teach the students and these ways may differ every time with each new batch of students. An educator needs to perform every day in class as per the needs and demands of the batch and we always remember the best performance althroughout. Hichki, a recent film by Siddharth Malhotra is about a brilliant teacher, Naina Mathur (Rani Mukerji) who has Tourette’s syndrome, lands a job in an elite school after several failures and rejections. She puts aside her problem and overcomes all challenges to…
