The Like Laws

Filed under: Human Nature,Philosophy,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 7:52 pm

Law 1: If someone is universally disliked, then there must be something good about that person, because no bad (or evil) person is disliked by everyone.

Law 2: If someone is universally liked, then that person must be the biggest fraud, because no genuine person can be liked by everyone.

These two laws are related to the law that says no one is perfect.

The Best, the Worst and the Dog

Celebrate the worst ones

Encourage the worse ones

Discourage the better ones

Persecute the best ones


Give lollypops and soap operas

To all those in the normal middle


And occasionally you throw them

A slick and crafty Shutter Island

For good effect, or just for the fun


Never mind the giant leaky holes

And shady twisted morbid corners

It still works for the normal middle


Why? Why, of course! Because


It is perfect as a counter-alibi

It is a boot stamping on a human

Face, forever. This boot has the

Legendary Auteur stamp on it


The lineage is from another of

The Auteurs who believed it

Was good to say BOO! from time

To time to the normal middle


Lollypops and soap operas are

All very well. But BOO! will do the

Trick for more ambitious things


This is not the Mockingbird Boo

But the Psycho BOO! you know

The two are completely different

But the two do have a connection


And so the tail will forever happily

Wag the rest of the happy healthy dog



Who wrote this shit?


Why did you write this?


Well, I didn’t write this.

You did that, of course.

मौसम का खान-पान

कहते हैं कि हिन्दुस्तान एक ग़रीब देश है

कि यहाँ के ढेरों लोग यूँ ही भूखे मरते है

इसमें कुछ तो सच है पर कुछ नहीें भी है


गर्मियों में आदमी को खूब भूना जाता है

बरसात में उसे जम के उबाला जाता है

ठंड में उसी की कुल्फ़ी जमाई जाती है


कई बार तीनों मौसम एक ही साथ पड़ जाते हैं

एक ही देश में ही नही, एक ही काल में भी


मौमस का खान-पान है

खान-पान का मौसम है


कौन खाए, किसे खाए, कैसे खाए –

छोटा सा सवाल है, आसान ही है

पर सवाल इतना सरल नहीं भी है


क्योंकि देसी खाए या कि परदेसी खाए

कि विदेसी खाए कि अदेसी ही खा जाए


मालिक खाए कि उसका ग़ुलाम खाए

पक्का राष्ट्रवादी खाए कि गद्दार खाए

विदेशी ग़ुलाम खाए, विदशियों का ग़ुलाम खाए

राष्ट्रवादी ग़ुलाम खाए या कि ऐंटी-नैशनल खाए


आप सिर्फ़ खाना हैं कि आप खाते हैं

या कि आप खाना हैं, जो खाते भी हैं


मौसम का सवाल है, सवाल का मौसम है

मौसम ही जवाब है, जवाब का भी मौसम है


20 के फूल हैं, 19 की माला है

बुरी नज़र वाले, तेरा मुँह काला है

The Defining Feature of 21C

Filed under: 21C,Apocalypse,Homo Sapiens,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 7:36 pm

Full-fledged eruption of planetary pestilence called Homo Sapiens.

If only there was a God who could set it right.

Oh, come on! There is no Apocalypse in 21C!

Perhaps. Still, you can see far better the skull beneath the Sapien skin.

By the way, my Air Quality Index app does indeed say ‘Airpocalypse’.

Solidarity is — more often than not — a lynch mob.

Naked Future 21C

NEET’s bizarre code sparks outrage in Kerala

Promise of 21C: Everyone in a Global Prison.

What happens to me (or someone else) today, is bound to happen to you sooner or later.


Do you share some responsibility for this?
