Driving Personalities & Past Life theory

I was not a strong believer in Past Life theories for a long time. At least not since my birth in Present Life.  But things changed.  They changed, after I took my driving test and got behind the wheels on my own.  It was one busy morning in my driving seat and I was speeding on the highway. Atleast for a novice driver like me, 50kmph was like a full throttle charge. And just then I got a Vision. All my fellow drivers on the highway zipping past me, had transformed into some possessed creatures from the animal kingdom. Unfortunately this vision has been haunting me every time I am behind the wheel.

So here is my dreadful list of Past life forms of most of my fellow drivers that I have been encountering everyday.

The Mighty Rat:

This past life species drives with only a singular objective. Find a gap between two cars and encroach that space. They are ready to jeopardize their and others life through every minute of their driving. Some how a large population of Autorickshaw drivers in India fall under this Past life form.

The Zig- zag Cobra: 

Drivers with tendencies of this past life form bear a strong resemblance with ‘The Mighty Rat’. Yet one of the biggest difference being the speed at which the Cobra souls drive their bodies. Lethal in attack and also unfortunately with may be the highest mortality rates in Present Life.

The Sleepy Snail:  This Past Life form has actually absolute disregard for any laws of motion, but still adheres to the 1st law of motion- If an object experiences no net force, then its velocity is constant: the object is either at rest (if its velocity is zero), or it moves in a straight line with constant speed (if its velocity is nonzero).  They also prefer to defy laws of time and space.

The Scorpion King:

Empty road or crowded roads, these  Past Life souls prefer to drive their vehicles crossways. They may not be always fast,but straight road is not for them. Somehow they also display a higher degree of vengeance to fellow creatures  on the road and are abusive like their Rat and Cobra counterparts. No one escapes a sting by the Scorpion King.

The Gentle Horse:

This one is the safest Past Life species to befriend, atleast for me. They mend their own way, gentle yet assertive on the lane.  Traffic or no traffic, these gentle souls do not fret. For them, life is journey. Destination and time to destination is secondary. Safety and pleasure of the ride are some past life instincts of this genre. Interestingly, in  Present Life this species has demonstrated longer life span.

The Raging Bull:

This one seems to be the most dreadful of the all the Past Life forms to me. With their dark evil shadows looming over me all the time, they cannot stop honking their ‘Horns’ ! I have almost got mowed down by them, thanks to my single lane driving instincts.

My dreadful visions have not stopped yet; I am anxious that more species might get discovered. Do feel free to report any new findings.

And yes, no matter who you were in your past life, Wish you SAFE DRIVING 🙂

No Shave, No Lipstick…the new dating mantra

Not sure how many of you have noticed the ongoing “No Shave, No Lipstick” movement in the media. Well it’s actually a daring ad campaign smartly tagged as ‘Movement’ for the new Gillette shaving blades.

Well,  to decode the ‘Movement’ as stated in the advertorial, it’s all about how women consider men to be undesirable, uncool and as per some extreme comments less trustworthy, if they are with a stubble!

And all this research by AC Nielsen with a record-breaking massive sample set of 150 women in few metros! That’s it..well that’s why it’s called a Sample set.

This is a dreadful statistics for all the Lipstick companies. Behind every unshaven man, there will the one or may be many (could vary in some case I believe) women; who are committed not to use their most preferred  weapon from their vanity box, the Lipstick.

Thank god that I am married by now. So no imminent threat with my weekend stubble.  But yes, for all the bachelor men out there, you better take this seriously.

Looking forward to some FB posts as follows.

>Fish Tank

>

Imagine a water tank with only pure water flowing into it. It has beautiful fishes, all swimming in their own rhythm. And then one day the tank starts getting filled with dirty water. The fishes in the tank grow sluggish. Hovering at the top of the tank to gasp some oxygen. The dirty water is filling the tank faster than the pristine water.

The dirty water also brings with it some fishes. Fishes, those are used to the dirty water. Slowly the fresh water fishes are all dead.Will the dirty water fish still survive? Why not, they are so used to the dirty water; right? But the dirty water also brings with it lots of sludge. Slowly the sludge fills up the tank bottom up. The dirty water fishes also now start moving to the top of the tank,gasping for oxygen. And then one day, all that is left in the tank is nothing but the sludge.

Now the tank itself is not capable of holding any more water, pure or dirty.

Our life is also very much the same. In real life, there are a number of instances when good and bad collide. Just like the tank example, we let the bad thoughts,emotions,experiences or actions
flow faster than the good. If the pristine water were to flow faster than the impure water, the pure water would have displaced the impurity like a waterfall juts with pure water.
