Imagine A Stick — On Arts and Psychology

Talking about Art and Psychology, but might also contain a bit of insight on Politics.

They say imagination encircles the world. That’s a good view, but there’s another story. Even though imagination may not necessarily be “finite”, it is still susceptible to human limitations. These limitations vary from person to person, and affects many instances of our lives (and even our beliefs).

How do you find out the limits of your own imagination?

Keeping The ‘Kalam’ In Hand

A passionate engineer. A reluctant politician. A man who was so intellectually and empathetically connected with the youth of this nation that his birthday is regarded as World Students Day.

Plume Creator — Redesign

A while back, trying to look for a good novel-writing solution for Ubuntu / Linux, I bumped into a software called Plume Creator. I quickly grew very fond of it, and decided to use it exclusively for most of my stories.

My (Kinda Technical) Journey In Magic

I might make another post describing my “Spiritual” journey, considering the contents are slightly different from what I’m attempting to write here. If I don’t, I hope someone holds me up to it.
