“To know this world” – Nayana Nair

The world is not really like what the map tells you, what the news tells you, what YouTube tells you, what your people tell you. To know what you really feel about something you have to ignore all the hearsay, all the generalization. To really know something or someone, sometimes you have too forget yourselfContinue reading ““To know this world” – Nayana Nair”

“What I Remember(4)” – Nayana Nair

I tell myself that I have nothing worth saying and that no one wants to listen. I know this because I have tried to speak my mind and in best cases I have been told that my mind is not that right, that the experience that I speak from doesn’t exist for them, so theyContinue reading ““What I Remember(4)” – Nayana Nair”

“Preference” – Nayana Nair

What I find sad about people is that they do not know how to value something without looking down on everything else. What irritates me more that this attitude is celebrated in a way that makes everyone want to adopt it just to look like a person with strong opinion. Fortunately, I do not haveContinue reading ““Preference” – Nayana Nair”

“In the Image of” – Nayana Nair

I am not talking about enhancing my likability here. But just to be taken seriously I need to like certain things, I need to act certain way. I need to fill forms whenever I meet someone new, whenever I meet them again. Am I capable? Am I an intellectual (of the right kind)? Am IContinue reading ““In the Image of” – Nayana Nair”

“More Boxes” – Nayana Nair

Everyday I buy more boxes and more trunks, to stow away the harmless opinions and stories of mine that have never left my mouth, and have never known how the cold air of this world feels like. They are better off not knowing how they are going to be broken and crushed till nothing ofContinue reading ““More Boxes” – Nayana Nair”

“Immune to Good Advice” – Nayana Nair

When my own opinions can’t budge the doors that are closed on my face, I run back to these books which list how to think, what to want. I do not look for how it is done I look for what I did wrong. But my mind is so immune to a good advise thatContinue reading ““Immune to Good Advice” – Nayana Nair”

“Heart” – Nayana Nair

I do not believe that a heart can think or argue. Or have its own opinion. So what we call ‘heart’ is just a part of mind the rebels against logic or reason with feelings so beautiful and so heart wrenching, that people felt the need to name it something more simple, more fragile, moreContinue reading ““Heart” – Nayana Nair”

“A stage for sadness”- Nayana Nair

So….its been a while since I started visiting the site – sothere.com….quite frequently, I must say. Why? I don’t know for sure. I came to know about the site through stumbleupon.com ……I did visit it 2-3 three times..when I found it…and even though of writing some letters of my own to send to them…but IContinue reading ““A stage for sadness”- Nayana Nair”

“Sad Endings”- Nayana Nair

Last night I was watching the movie “Vinnaithandi Varuvaya”…….liked it….. But each time I watch movies…One thing becomes certain about my bad taste..that I’m more inclined to like those with sad endings…… For example…..some weeks ago…I was watching the same movie’s Hindi version “Ekk Deewana Tha”……you know..the story was pretty same…same music..by A.R. Rahman (LovedContinue reading ““Sad Endings”- Nayana Nair”
