Category: Recommendations

Some aspects of life are so awesome that it’s hard not to recommend them to others. All my recommendations are clubbed in this category.

My Brown Dad Voted for Trump

This was a great read. Pretty emotional towards the end. I wish the author would explore more about the Aryan race stuff mentioned in the article. Maybe a followup? I think this has a lot of connections with the caste system that thrives in Indian culture, no matter where in the world they are.

Song Recommendation: Echoes (Meddle, Pink Floyd)

I’m a huge Pink Floyd fan. I don’t think there has even been a progressive rock band that has composed as beautiful, inspirational, melodious, meaningful and psychedelic music as them.

There aren’t enough adjectives in the English language to capture all the emotions you feel while listening to Pink Floyd. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to an auditory orgasm.

So, why am I picking this particular song from their humongous catalogue of impressive tunes?

Well, for starters it’s just a personal preference (duh!).… » click to continue reading “Song Recommendation: Echoes (Meddle, Pink Floyd)”

Song Recommendation: Blowin’ In the Wind (Peter, Paul and Mary)

Originally written by Bob Dylan, Blowin’ in the Wind became one of the most famous tunes of 1963 after the folk-singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary covered it.

This song is nothing but a series of serious rhetorical questions about freedom, peace, and war. It also covers other topics such as cruelty, empathy and liberty.

And there’s just one simple answer to all those questions: The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.

Song Recommendation: Infinite Dreams (Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Iron Maiden)

Music is a great way to relax (or get energized). There’s something soothing about hearing different notes playing in a rhythmical pattern (or not). Apart from being relaxing, music can also be thought-provoking. Songs with meaningful lyrics are basically poetry in auditory motion.

I’ve come to like various types of music over the years (for multiple reasons). While I’m not a musician, I certainly can appreciate good music; just like a person can appreciate food without being a chef. This section serves as a platform to share the songs (and music) I like with everyone else.… » click to continue reading “Song Recommendation: Infinite Dreams (Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Iron Maiden)”

Super Worms: An Addictive 2-Player Game from the Past

Super Worms is an addictive indie-game that was originally released for DOS by Wiering Software (and then later for Windows). It’s a 3-D racing game similar to Mario Kart, except here you’re controlling a tiny worm on racetrack instead of a Mario character placed in a go-kart.

The game was released as a shareware, which means you can try the game and play it for as long as you like. However, only a few tracks are available in the shareware version; you have to buy the full version to unlock the special tracks/courses and other features (I’ve never played the full version of this game).… » click to continue reading “Super Worms: An Addictive 2-Player Game from the Past”

Experimenting Pomodoro with Tomighty Desktop Timer

The main reason I started this blog is to share my experiences. While learning different things is one of my passions, I also have a great deal of trouble tackling procrastination.

For a layman, procrastination may seem like an easy challenge, but there’s a lot to it than what appears on the surface.

Something had to be done about it. That’s when I stumbled on this wonderful time management technique called Pomodoro.

What is Pomodoro Technique?

Pomodoro Technique is a time management tool introduced in the 1980s by an Italian named Francesco Cirillo… » click to continue reading “Experimenting Pomodoro with Tomighty Desktop Timer”
