Fountain Pen

Hello Friends,

After many years I decided to use my fountain pen again, so I bought two ink bottles from Bril (Royal blue & Violet) and started writing few lines.

U must be wondering as to "What's so special about writing with fountain pen that made me write a new post on my blog after years of silence?"

Its just my belief that "If u will not enjoy writing ur words (thoughts), then seldom anybody else with enjoy them reading."

I agree that ball pens and gel pens gives us wings, we can write at our top speeds, but somehow I'm an old school... I still luv to write with fountain pen, slowly, enjoying the smooth creation of words as the nib goes up/down left and right. Honestly I had only spend around 16mins till now writing, but I assure u all that: I really enjoyed every minute as the nib of my pen glided on the paper... leaving lines of ink creating words.

We all might have genuinely transformed into gadget freaks, but the fact is the basic art of good hand writing is fading much more faster than anyone thinks of it. I'm not just saying, its an open fact that if u will pickup a fountain pen > fill ink in it > and start to write... U will be rushing like anything to write ur thoughts, u can't write anything without thinking about ur phone, online friends, or messages.

It had become so difficult to forget everything else going around us and simply enjoy the feeling of ur pen floating on the paper creating beautifully curved words... forming a beautiful line (full of feelings) to read.

People freak out if they r made to do anything again and again. This is the most dangerous devil we all have been feeding in this fast paced life of 21st century.

Just think of one word. Then start writing that word in as many creative forms as u can write on one full paper.
Then on a separate paper write that same word with same type of hand writing at least 200 times. I bet most of the people who will dare to try this... will go mad.

Take ur time writing, till u start feeling good. Then let me know how much time it took for u to feel happy/gud about writing that same word again n again.

This is the basic form we humans have adopted to keep our thoughts for ages, have we turned into such a weak person that we have fallen helpless in front of our own devils?

Go ahead pickup ur fountain pen and write, I would luv to read ur experiences with ur fountain pen... so please share pics of what u wrote and how u felt.

Luv u all,

Ebola, a threat to our existence

What do u know about this word “Ebola”?

Some know it as a disease which killed 1000s in Africa, some with better information said it’s a virus due to which a person die with high fever. What else?

From past few days I was feeling very uneasy about this thought, and so I'm sharing this all with u. I’ll tell u why I’m putting my time writing about Ebola.

In this age of Internet u need not bang ur head to search for any information, but those who are not able to be online are the one who really needs to be informed. I’m sharing this in an effort to help all those by giving u this information so that u can share it with confidence.

It is highly alarming to note the way it spread, the speed with which it spread, the way the symptoms kept changing in various observations at different places (country), the way it is able to handle medicines….. makes me accept the fact that Ebola is very intelligent virus, I strongly believe that Ebola virus will become more intelligent with time. Ebola virus by adapting to the changing environment will soon be able to stand-up to counter medicines available till date, which is an alarm to not only humanity… it’s a threat to life of all primates also. For information… Primates are mammals living on trees like apes, baboons, monkeys, etc.

If I’m not mistaken than most primates live in tropical or subtropical regions of the Americas, Africa and Asia. Which makes me conclude that Origin/Spread of Ebola virus have a very strong connection with climate of tropical or subtropical regions. If a simple person like me can think about this then I’m sure Somebody much intelligent than me much have tried (research) on to change the living conditions of a patient suffering from Ebola and monitor the progress very carefully. I’m sure Working on this line shall help.

About Ebola (Wiki):
The disease was first identified in 1976 in two simultaneous outbreaks, one in Nzara, and the other in Yambuku, a village near the Ebola River where the disease takes its name. Between 1976 and 2013, the World Health Organization reports a total of 24 outbreaks involving 1,716 cases. As of 26 January 2015, this outbreak has 22,136 reported cases resulting in 8,833 deaths.

First of all Ebola is not spread like cold/flu, it’s not airborne disease. Ebola spreads by direct contact with body fluids of the infected patient. Like saliva, (which includes sneeze & coughing), urine, stool, blood, semen, breast milk. According to wiki: Symptoms in other diseases like malaria, cholera, typhoid fever, meningitis and other viral hemorrhagic fevers may resemble Ebola’s Symptoms. The best possible and more important prevention is to keep urself away from getting in direct contact with body fluids of the Ebola patient. This also means that burring the body of dead patient infected with Ebola virus is still a source of continuous infection to others. The best way to burn/cremate the body.

But why I’m writing all this? Bcoz I’m worried…. Wiki says: No specific treatment or vaccine for the virus is currently available, although a number of potential treatments are being studied. Which means humans have be internally strong enough to handle and fight back this virus, otherwise no specific medicine is available to help u. Drinking slightly sweetened and salty water will surely help u stay hydrated, otherwise u’re already in danger.

Major reason of my worry is the continuous evolution of Ebola Virus, yes… like u and me this virus is also going to evolve. It can (I hope it will) become more intelligent, which means it will be able to adapt to weather, medicines in a much better way than today. This will threaten the existence of mammals on this planet.

Obviously many will call me fool to think about our existence, but I'm no more that irresponsible teenager, I'm grownup enough to care about humanity... not just myself.

Yes, I’m worried…
