A (not so innocent) view about 'flirting'!!

I've been receiving a little better response from people around the blogosphere for a post I've written before. It really inspires me as it is one of the main reason why I'm here today. The post ("An innocent view about flirting") is about flirting and you can read it from the link provided. Whenever I receive comments in that post, I used to think about the relevance of that post now. I personally object some specific things I've written there even though I've remarked about my ignorance in my topic. The status is still the same, I'm not a flirter and unfortunately, I'm still against flirting.

The reason for this post today and the post before are almost alike. Some of my friends are determined to make me fall in love and break my leg!! And I almost stood at a point at which forcing me to fall in love is an almost flirting. Just like before, I'm still noticing a lot of advertisements in facebook to find beautiful girls and they haven't received a single page view because of me and I consider it as an achievement.

The point is still the same!! Our behavior and habits have changed a lot because of our artificial life. What will happen if there were no internet? I'm supposed to survive so why should I care about advertisements? I have heard of a story of a man who created an orkut account just for flirting and later he deleted the same account as he got married. Internet is not always a place to flirt but, online games and flirting sites have changed the face of internet to a certain extend! Choosing a life partner is not as simple as we choose a shirt from the textile shop. It is easy but, it is not the way it should be! Smart boys can get smart girls! But in my view, smartness is just like pretending something. Its an act for temporary impression. I do not believe that girls are going to be a fan of me if I had a nice bike and expensive deodorant. These kinds of things are just exploiting our weaknesses. We are already aware of it.

I remember an advice from one of my friends to write 'love stories' instead of these weird blog posts for creating an impression. There are people who believe that everything they do is just for impressions. But, I can't accept it. I remember a status update of my friend which says that we should try to be ourselves by avoiding impressions. It impressed me a lot as he got a point. I'm not what I'm when I try to impress anything. I can't really maintain the level of my impression throughout my life. This thing seems to be insane to me. I do not like to behave like any celebrity to attract attention, I do not like to wear any freaky clothes just to attract attention. What I do in my life is just my standard and my life is not perfect or imperfect as it may seem.

A few years back, I and one of my friends were having a debate about the same subject and I remember the words I just said about this. "It is better to find someone who loves our weaknesses than to find someone who loves our show-offs". Today, it makes a lot of sense for me as it is perfectly true in many senses.I have a certain nature and my thoughts have a certain nature and I'm not ready to change myself just because I am supposed to make an impression. The real impression which can always remain in my life is when I can comfortably say that 'I am just what I am' and such a statement can automatically impress a lot of people. The real love is when I can find someone who loves my imperfections.

I wish everyone to be able to find your perfect life-partner, but I am well aware that luck has nothing to do about it. So, save your leg!!

NB: nothing specific but, I'm forced to put down something!

NB1: Some of my close friends might be able to figure out the reason for using 'not so innocent' in brackets. If they can't, I didn't mean anything!!

A mission to save the earth!!

There is a usual sequence in many hollywood movies. World will face a huge destruction (probably because of ourselves) and a hero rise from nowhere to save the world with his bare hands and intelligence! I watched the movie 2012 when it was on focus for a while but, the essence of that movie was also the same. I wonder, every single man in this world is expecting the end of the world some day. Not just the movies, our religions are also expecting the same! I'm expecting the same someday!! Yes, the world is going to end one day!! I've found a reason too. 'Our intelligence'!!!

I remember one fact which I have heard in my childhood "If we are creating a movie of 60 minutes with all the most important things happened on earth, humans own the last 3-4 seconds". If we compare the age of earth with that of the age of human existence, we lived only a very few years on earth(so far). Let's take the example of that movie, in 3-4 seconds, we made many animals disappear, we made most of our rain forests disappear, we built many buildings and increased the nature's average temperature, we drilled the earth and the list of achievements goes on. We almost changed the face of earth in comparatively very short time (milliseconds in comparison to earth's life). Please don't get bored of hearing the same news from the world around. I know, all of us are aware of what I'm talking and I need not waste my time in explaining this section.
What is our mistake? Mistake is not ours, it's our creator who almost made us responsible for the life of about 5 million species( it is estimated that the total number of animals in our planet comes to around 5 to 30 millions. Lets assume that it is about 5 million). Risking the life of about 5 million species just for the domination of 1 species seems to be insane. We got civilized and we built our own world by destroying the most beautiful 'beauty of randomness', the nature. We are considered as the brainiest animals on earth and we did all these insane activities. No one can skip from the responsibility of protecting the nature. I remember a dialog in the movie "The matrix" which explains that humans are not considered as mammals and that too by a program programmed by machines. We do not maintain a good ecological balance with the environment. We are getting outnumbered and we are exploiting as deep as we could. All that we are capable of doing is to dig our own (future generation's) grave by what the intelligent people call 'development'! What am I doing now? I'm sitting on a plastic chair (which won't destroy even after 1000 years) with a laptop(most of the components are going to be called as electronic waste in the near future) on a wooden table, that is made by destruction of forest wood!I'm also responsible for what I'm doing ! What shall I do? I'm also a member of 'intelligently insane creature's group' of the earth!!

I've seen people who advice everyone to reduce using fossil fuels. In my view, it is already time to 'stop' than 'reduce'. It is heard that fossil fuels are created by a lengthy processes of millions of years by our earth and certainly, no man had lived a million year on earth. We can't refuel it and our future generations are going to suffer for it. But, quite recently, I saw a comment in a facebook group which says that our oceans are going to get fished-off in 2048. I showed the comment to one of my friends and he replied like this " Why should I bother? I will get too old by 2048 and by that time our scientists will invent tablets instead of food". I do not believe that the existence of the entire world is for human domination and I do not have much trust in scientists as they can always invent some worse inventions! Today's meaning for 'life' almost resembles 'process of enjoyment' and our generations will follow us which makes things worse. We are well aware of what we are doing but, who is responsible? Who really care what we did? Who really enjoy what we did? Just ourselves!!
This topic has been inspiring me a lot for a long long time as I found a very simple solution for all the problems that can ever happen on earth. Get uncivilized(there is no spelling mistakes in this expression)!! Get back to the life of 'cave man' and try to maintain sense of the nature by making our acts sensible! I got really inspired when I watched the movie "In to the wild" in which a man who tried to lead a life in a jungle and ended up in the jungle itself because of accidental consumption of forest plant. It was a sad ending but, the nature has to maintain its balance. What we have invented or achieved or exploited will become meaningless if we can't even maintain the place where we are living. And just as the hollywood movies, there will be a hero to save and it need not always be just a hero it could be achieved by the combined effort of 6 billion heroes also!! 

NB: I do not have an idea of what I've written but, this topic is always relevant!!
