The Moscow Blasts...

A shocking incident...more so after similar such incidents have taken place closer home!

The loss of life and the trauma that this incident has caused is unalterable, permanent.

Words are of no use in such cases and thus I will not try to give out useless gyaan.

Here is an article about the whole thing from the point of view of a Moscow-ite. It clearly expresses how such acts of terrorism affect even those who have not been at the site or victimised directly.

Wise Guy In A Warped World

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting the new improved title of your very own blog previously popular* as 'The Teenager's Perspective Of The World'.

(*Some may argue that the fact that this blog is popular is questionable, so let me tell them this - That issue is not open for debate!)

Yeah, thank you to all those who are congratulating me on the really great name I came up with .Those who aren't, complaints are not welcome! 'Cause I am in a very good mood right now, ecstatic is more like it. Why? You're asking me why! Go ask the parents of a new born why they are so excited about their child's name and the ceremony involved.

What the name exactly means is something I will leave up to you to deduce. You could always share with me what your peanut sized brains came up with.

On a more serious note, I would like to end this post by thanking Nalini Hebbar, Saras, Parth Dave for all their suggestions on what I could name my blog. Though I realize what all you must be thinking;

What a brat! Does not even consider my suggestion and is shameless enough to acknowledge the fact in public. What a waste of time and grey matter.

But believe me if it wasn't for those beautiful suggestions of yours I could not have come up with this one.

Name Of Blog: Pending

Oh, please don't click that mouse and move away from the blog, it's me, ARJuna, this is the very same blog which you always come by - Teenager's Perspective Of The World though it's not a teenager's anymore. It's now an adult's perspective. But come on; who in his right mind would name his blog Adult's Perspective... (for that matter who in his right mind would have thought of naming a blog - Teenager's Perspective Of The World, I mean it's so bloody long, but a teen is never in his right mind, is he?).

So, my life as an adult has begun and is already gaining momentum. But there were a few things I had to still take care of and as you must have guessed by now the purpose of the strange title that I have given my blog, finding a good name for my blog (to suit my personality as a mature adult) is one of them.

So as my dear late mamaji (though I don't remember exactly which, I always seem to have so many of them!!!) had once said - Forget your ego and always ask someone for the right directions, when you've lost your way. Though from what I've heard he died after falling into a ditch after taking the wrong shortcut through the woods!

Hence I am requesting you, my readers, to help me find a name for my blog.

While helping me christen my blog please remember;

  1. I don't mind if the name is long, please go ahead and suggest it. You could also suggest any number of names that come to your mind.
  2. The key words are Youth, Perspective, World and Personal (but you can go ahead and suggest something hatke if you just can't resist yourselves)
  3. It would be great if you could share how and why you came across the name that you suggested.

So this is ARJuna signing off with the hope that I will recieve your suggestions soon.

Oh, and yes, wishing all of you a very Happy Holi!!!
