A song that breaks the walls of language and leave you in tears .

This song would probably leave you in tears with a tinge of that nostalgic love in your heart brimming up to the surface with the old memories. But that’s just me let me know about yours.

For some, context the song gives a glimpse of the story Hotarubi No Mori which translates to “Into the Forest of Fireflies “. The tale is about how a girl who got stranded in a forest meets a spirit, the spirit helps her and they become friends. But a wall exists between them as the spirit could disappear forever if he is touched by a human.

Fair warning, the video does have spoilers but I don’t think it would have any consequence on your wish for watching the movie.

Hotarubi No Mori e tells a beautiful love story, a surreal fantasy dreamed up in a space between hope and truth, between human and soul. Finally, when the dream dissipates, it leaves behind a beautiful memory.

Globalisation

Despite the many challenges it has created, Globalisation has made the world a better place than it otherwise would have been. The world has much to offer, and we still need it to eradicate poverty and generate higher living standards for all, making globalisation a necessity.

 But even as we adapt to globalisation, we also tend to defend against it. The introduction of new ideas and culture tend to change the existing ones and in many cases, the newly introduced ideas are heavily contested, feared and some other times opposed.

The legitimacy of whether globalisation is a force for good is always questioned. There have been many diagnoses done on the idea of globalisation, trying to understand the main problems and where they lie.

The most significant of them as far as I have seen was the institutional inequality faced by different industries and countries due to lack of capital, geography, resources, etc. and also it’s not just the globalised economic hubs that are impacted by the globalisation bus, everyone is part of the waggon. If the leaders are able to visualise and consistently plan ahead then resources for the area will increase with rising in social opportunities, etc

The very fact that I am writing this assignment can be traced back to globalisation. I stand with the fact that global system is unfair in many scenarios but it does not lead to poor becoming poorer and rich richer. The issue is the distribution of benefits which can only be rectified through education.

Educating the masses will enable them to better suit the current scenario and keep up in the competition.

To conclude as it has brought many changes in all parts of my life from the gadgets I use and wear to the food I eat, I can consider myself as a global citizen and part of a global village, even if it may be a little isolated and away from the usual crowd.

Incomplete Story 1 – You won’t find a more stupid story than this.

 The ant was looking at the tree with images of its childhood flashing in front of it. The tree from the memory of the ants now appears to be digging into its roots with a shovel reinforced with a guiding mechanism that would enable it to find the principal root. The guiding mechanism steers the shovel to roots under the earth with relative ease.

The queen of bees when asked said the brain of the tree is raging under some double track disruption spell.  The tiger that had been sleeping under the tree says the tree intends to unite with its partner. The three hat wearing rabbits, the ones who had provided the tree with the shovel with powerful magic says they do this usually for a commission of carrots.

The ant that had driven here after hearing the rumours that followed after the tree took to its root with the shovel. He talked with the termites that had arrived at the stage with one of its powerful figures, a protege of the former termite Lord that lived in the tree. He had come carrying an axe after he heard his former lord has fallen after the tree had gone crazy. He would have cut down the tree he says but he is afraid of the safety of the tiger who is still sleeping under the tree.

The ant after some time was able to discern from the network of spiders that the tree had identified its former nemesis from the time when it had been the kingpin of seeds of its clique. Apparently, a former bird that had stayed with the tree had come after a grand journey and had told the tree about his former rival that had taken the chair of leaves from it.

I GOT BORED AFTER THIS. GUESS FANTASY STORIES WITH TALKING ANTS AND TREES ARE NOT MY THING.

Jargon of Optimism

A strong optimism can strike a note on one’s engagement with the world. It helps to make the state of mind firm and to make one reach his full potential.
 
A strong framework of an optimism can be made only from the good diplomacy of heart and a strong policy of mind. An optimistic mind can create a convergence between heart and mind and people and people
.
The effort taken for a particular purpose will be much less if the mind is optimistic.Cooperation, coordination and a will to fight are some things that stem from the conundrum of optimism. It can help one reach the helm.
 
Optimism also helps to face the uncomfortable, unanswered question that sometimes arises from the depth of an expanding ocean of knowledge.It helps in closing down the charm of self-doubt.
 
But being critical of oneself is also necessary. If not an unchecked optimistic mind can result in a travesty of decision making and can even be seen as being complicit to idiocy.
 
 

Just do it

A Wednesday, @Campus

Day 3

“Just do it. I should just do it. I feel not like in the mood and do not want to, but I should. Guess I will do something.”

I was not doing a Shia LaBeouf “Just do it” session. I certainly didn’t have a green screen behind me.

Geeks or not. You must have heard of the chaos theory. Fair warning, I am not talking about the game, nor the album, nor the film. I am talking about the branch of mathematics that states that within the apparent randomness of chaotic systems, there are underlying patterns, repetitions, loops and sometimes a moment of order in a system sensitive to its initial conditions. If you are still not interested, ever heard the concept of the butterfly effect. It is derived from chaos theory.

I was introduced to the word procrastination when I was in eighth grade. It is not often that we find ourselves practising things that we were not aware had a particular name. Can I say that I had found myself procrastinating many times since then? I certainly didn’t know I was procrastinating before then.

Nature in a broader sense is the phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, and the landscapes of the earth. It is one of the highly complex systems and it is nigh unpredictable. But even in its marvel and mystery, we sometimes see a sense of order to it. But I am not going to talk about the nature of the material world. I find the behavioural nature of each of us much more interesting. The question of what reasons our actions?

Nature can also be defined as the basic or inherent features, character, or qualities of something that was inborn or hereditary often influenced by the environment of its origin. This is why I wanted to talk about the chaos theory and nature of ours.

In essence, even nature, how random and chaotic it may seem when we consider the chaos theory has its own patterns, repetitions and moments of order.

The question that we have to consider is how many times we get stuck in these patterns and repetitions. Imagine bemoaning each day as boring, a repetitive cycle many often fall into. So according to chaos theory, our nature can be traced to time we were growing. So the question that now irks me is whether I can blame all my nature of procrastination on to it.

Today morning, I found myself a bit lazy and hesitant to hit the gym, I haven’t had a shred of physical exercise for some time and had promised some of my friends that I would go with them, but I was starting to feel the non-existent knick in my neck.

If I were to not go to the gym. I would probably fall into a cycle of blaming my upbringing or the bad decision from the past I make. A cycle with no resolution. Then the question would be as to how not to get stuck in a repetitive cycle of such or in some cases how to recognise the momentary order we find in the chaos we live so that the nature we adapt during these moments will define our nature forward.

The actions we take during these moments of order among the chaos of our life will identify our actions in the future. Then the question is what reason could spur us into action.

I was trying to motivate myself to just do it when I got invited to play football by some other friends. In the end, I played football.

Did I achieve a moment of order today?
