Intolerance

Couldn't resist sharing what Barkha Dutt recently said on the National Debate 2016 organized by The Telegraph in Kolkatta on Tolerance and Intolerance.

She was spot on...


Exactly what I was trying to say in News Today

Evolution with Time

As children, we epitomize our parents... but at the back of our head we also sort out their habits subconsciously into the ones you wish you'd get, and those you wouldn't want to inculcate.

Imagine my surprise when, in a recent discussion with my parents, I realized that I had subconsciously started doing some of the things in exactly the way they do... except, as a kid, I didn't like it...

What would you call it then... growing up ? inheritance ? 
Or has my memory just dulled and I have chosen the path of convenience over the right one...

All of us change with time.. but am wondering if I'll suddenly realize one fine day, that I've turned into a person I don't like !

People

I like travelling... different places... different people... different food :)
Actually I revel in it...

By places, I don't necessarily mean globetrotting... even different streets of Delhi qualifies... because each nook and corner seems to have a species of homo sapiens specific to that latitude and longitude, with a food specialty too...

Chatting up with people is the perfect way to understand their ecosystem, and how they tick...

My latest sample space of human curios are Ola/Uber drivers, who seem to belong to varied sects/segments of society, from college students to part time workers to fleet operators.... each of them has a different story to tell... and different side of the coin....
