WISH ME THE BEST

I should have followed the example of my late sister, Tina, who did not appear for the IIT JEE and instead got admitted into Cornell University in the US after high school at Cathedral in Mumbai. Her goal was biochemistry from the beginning and she did not waste time preparing for the extremely difficult entrance exam to the IITs back here. I wasted 4 years preparing in earnest for the IIT JEE beginning in Grade 9 and steadily turned into a recluse till Grade 12 as intense preparation for the IIT JEE was foremost in my mind. Then after clearing the IIT JEE, I wasted 5 years in the IIT studying a pure science discipline with lots of Math. The course work was difficult but my creative side got suppressed because of the dull and uninventive atmosphere. My creative side has manifested under the pressure of the yogic force that keeps descending into me but I wish I had given IIT a skip and been exposed to the finest academic atmosphere after high school at MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Cambridge, ZIT (Zurich) or some other elite university abroad. Let's see what life holds for me now. I want to use my sharp intellect in some creative way in a scientific discipline that's heavy on Math. Just dealing with businessmen and spending loads of money on a daily basis gets boring after a time. Yoga can go hand in hand with science in my case. Let's see what steps I take to fulfill my ambition. It will be difficult because my mind, emotions and nerves have been damaged to quite an extent due to you know who. I want to give it a try and succeed since age, intelligence and grit are on my side. Wish me the best, everyone.

My eyes are moist after typing that bit above on career as fond memories of the past with family and friends are surfacing and at the same time I'm thinking about the ruin that that monster guru brought into my life that has damaged me in serious ways. I have wasted my life till now despite having the higher intellectual traits that one needs to become a grand success in academics with meaningful contributions to the discipline of specialization. Academics and research in a scientific field with heavy emphasis on Math are always on my mind but my difficult circumstances are creating blocks and pushing me away from achieving my cherished goal. I am sad. Anyway, I have to somehow survive and push forward.

A little later, I'll type out some interesting info on Dr Sam Harris, Stanford University neuroscientist, and his foray into yoga, his fruitless meditation in caves, his turning into a vegetarian, his need for animal protein and his return to the fold of atheism.

Hugh supposedly worked as head honcho of two American MNCs with outsourcing facilities in Jamaica. Thankfully, dear Hugh didn't become a lowly male nurse. LOL.

Flip side of good looks - I've been asked to donate semen on quite a few occasion and media scouts have asked me to model designer men's wear or to act in a porn flick. I simply brush aside such persons and their risque offers.

In India, it is legal to access pornographic material privately, but illegal to distribute or produce it. Because of this, the production of so-called “blue films”– generally softcore – is not openly discussed. That has not stopped the industry, traditionally based in southern states like Tamil Nadu and Kerala where censorship is more relaxed, from being worth an estimated one billion dollars. It is thought that the slang “blue film” originates from the use of blue sets and lighting to conceal the identities of the actors and ensure that they are safeguarded from social stigma. Indeed, public opinion about porn stars is very negative: they tend to be viewed as sex workers rather than actors, a serious slur in a culture which attaches such shame to sexuality.

Ironic they consider sexuality shameful -- considering there are over a billion of them. Do they not know from whence all those babies come?

A few years back I was invited to a pig roast. A real one, where they buried the smoldering animal in the dirt. I didnt eat any of it, but I found the whole experience interesting.
Have to admit, pork is a very tasty meat.

Way back when had a housemate who was an art student and vegetarian. He came downstairs one morning and said he had had a nightmare in which someone was force-feeding him bacon! The horrors!

Where semen donation is concerned, in some bizarre cases people in India are willing to pay the equivalent of thousands of dollars to acquire the semen of IIT grads who're seen as hyper intelligent.

In many cases, what passes off as porn in India are secret cam recordings of couples having sex in hotels.
