A JOURNEY INTO SOLITUDE

The first rays of the breaking dawn

embrace my coarse feet;

As I wonder

How many days it’s been,

Since my soul ceased to exist.

It was a long time ago 

when I set sail;

STAGFLATION

Let us go  back to the USA of the 1970s. A never-observed before disturbing trend is on the rise. Soon, it comes to the notice of Classical Economists.

  1. They observe a decline in general productivity levels.
  2. Unemployment levels are on the rise.
  3. However, the prices are increasing every day.

Now, the question here is, how can price levels rise when people are unemployed and not ready to splurge on stuff?

ALL ABOUT VEGANISM

I’m anticipating that 2020 is going to be the year, if not the decade of plant-based eating. Vegan is the new black. For some, being vegan may be a dietary choice, while for others it is a lifestyle choice.

India-China: A Thaw Relationship

India and China share an extremely excruciating relationship for decades. The border stiffness between the two most populous nations is not contemporary to anyone. Both the nuclear powers have been valiantly stimulating each other on the border. The root cause behind the disputes spun majorly around domination on geographical extents. The Sino-Indian war laid the footing of the torturous relationship between India and China. On October 20, 1962, the military troops of China confronted the Indian forces antagonistically when India declined the tactful proposals of China over the Himalayan dispute. The war finally ended on November 21, 1962, when China declared a ceasefire on the Indian troop. Despite numerous joint pacts and countless battles, the quarrel and rigidness haven’t faded away. The two Asian giants have been repetitively discovering the political, economic, and strategic ways to subvert each other.

ENCHANTMENT

She gingerly touched the lush grass,

The dew on them making her fingertips misty, 

She breathed in the invigorating air,

The essence of wet mud, the newly grown leaves on the tree,

She felt content.

CONDUCT OF THE EVOLVED

“Human behaviour flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.” – Plato

When we were small, we were taught how to behave in front of other people. We also observed others how they reacted to certain things or situations and adapted them. And over time with experience, we learned different reactions to these situations. Human Behaviour is a certain reaction towards a change in situation, emotion which can differ from person to person and along the course of life. These depend on the person’s thoughts, maturity, experience, and feelings. A person who is composed will control his behaviour while being angry. However, on the contrary, another person might act without thinking. Someone when young might react to a situation differently than the same person when older.
