Dear Discounts

Dear Discount,

I am happy to see you more often these days. You are becoming active with every passing day. Your scale ranges from 10 % to 70 %. You are so attractive that shoppers just can't take their eyes off you. Is it traction or false attraction?

To tell you the truth, heavy discounts were never a part of my growing years, until, recently. The competition has become fierce. Online services have changed the demand and supply pattern with induced buying. The need for products and services are created using every possible means. Socially & psychologically we are forced into this vicious cycle of purchase. If products can be sold at a 50 % discount, someone is baring the 50 % cost of it. Or is someone making 50 % loss/less profit?

The game of discounts is addictive. It has one goal - generate as many bills as possible.

Discounts also remind me of Enrique Iglesias song...
You can run, you can hide, but you can't escape my trap (love)

Hoping to see you soon.
Yours sincerely,
Shopp…

Radha Krishna

My first attempt to use a charcoal and a canvas. Unsure of the results, almost involuntarily I picked the canvas and charcoal. In few mins, the sketch was ready. To my surprise, it was good. 

Is it Radha Krishna or by fluke? I, an amateur completed the sketch in no time, effortlessly.

Love was in the air.... in retrospect, I guess I became a Gopi/Radha/Meera for a while.

Radhe Radhe! Krishna Krishna! 

Love fills you with happiness. 

I am in love with the sketch - RadhaKrishna!

Eye for detail, a silly skill?

Specific skills are required for certain jobs. Eye for detail is one of the many skills required in my profession. How effectively I apply eye for detail skill at work maybe a question but, the habit to check minor details has become a way of life for me.

Yes, it is...I can point out minor differences or mistakes. This skill has helped me identify camouflage insects, objects and emotions.

This skill has helped me get rid of mosquitoes too...sounds silly but it protects me and my dear ones...

Which skill do you make good use of, other than killing mosquitoes?

Cool or not cool?

Being 'Cool' is so cool. Cool people are liked, admired and loved. I too want to be a cool dude just like the famous....😎

But, wait a minute. Were cool people born cool? Yes or may be not. 

To be cool and continue to be cool is a matter of attitude. One doesn't need materialistic accessories, all you need is the right attitude!

Cool?....Don't get fooled. 😵
