Looks meaningful, hence this reblog. Thanks to the author.

“I’m a nobody blog writer, an amateur novelist, one of a million dotting the literary landscape,” writes Michelle at The Green Study. “Why do I have an ego that says I should be writing bigger?” In a recent post, Michelle reflects on writing a novel, committing to one’s art or passion, and telling meaningful stories in an age of uncertainty.


In a moment of clarity, as I wandered about the gardens this morning, I thought about how the real trick to anything is to fully commit to it. Ten years ago we started ripping up our lawn bit-by-bit, replacing grass with perennials. There were many times when I doubted it would ever look like the English garden I fantasized about, but each year, I took up more lawn, tried different plants, and dug in with all the enthusiasm of a novice. I hit a point of no return…

Just by the way:

This one is just the trial sort of an exercise to see whether the scipts meant for meneelkanth.blog are able to manifest the requisite clarity and a well meant neatness to satisfy the readers and all those who in some form or the other are connected to the new blog. This short post has only a limited purpose to this extent.


Shylocks operating in the share market–Beware of them!


images (1)

There are common people who have to resort to share trading to supplement their source of sustentation but they are hardly ever aware that this option of theirs is leading them to a den of wild vultures, the brokers as they are called, as their prey. The modus operandi adopted by them in the matter of their accounts is so grotesque that no common man is able to decode the same in a legible term. They are dexterous enough to keep their statistical data just so clean on the surface that it is far beyond any comprehension by an outsider including share traders. The laymen as most of the traders are they just can’t afford to unfold the intricacies and all this taken in its totality it results into making a rich broker much richer at the cost of the traders. The bumper ads released by them are quite silky and the traders are normally prone to take them on their face value getting allured with the gimmics so played by them hoodwinking their customers like a pick pocket does. The problem is that the otherwise badly laden with anxiety and concern on involving their money in the gamble, the traders are hardly left with an alternative against such a ghastly loot on the part of the brokers. Their option is confined only to an alert and precaution to the extent they can afford in thoroughly checking their individual deals. They must apply due care with an eagle’s eye to save their investment against a well manoevred onslaught at the hands of the brokers.

Obstructing the chain of thoughts:


Milky_Way_galaxy_sun05space3Engrossed in your work with a pensive thought it’s a tumultuous jolt to you if you get confronted with some hurdle or the other in the form of an obstacle. It is so annoying and irritating as if you had to incur a heavy loss with your mental faculties going astray like dry leaves wantonly flying helter skelter melting in the dust. Such a phase of life is like a Samadhi where one enters a circumference bordering unconsciousness bereft of any thing sordid. Any mode of thought process, a Divine mode or some business pursuits, none likes to be detracted to noise and uneasy utterances sans a normality. A chain of thoughts with Divine orientation or some business perception hardly tolerates hoarse voices in their close vicinity –the reason being a deep chain of thoughts never tolerates even a minor intrusion to their pursuit  and that is what is denotative of the kind of what a person thinks –it could be Divine, it could be sordid too.

This amounts to cheating!


images (1)There is a mushrooming growth of brokers in the share market of India and they are the ones fed fat on sucking the blood of the innocent traders in shares. They release silky ads to attract more and more of such traders projecting false images of theirs with plenty of offers and assurances to lure as bigger as possible a number of customers in their fold. Their greed for money is as big as a mountain bothering the least for the interest of the customers. They boast of offering new demat accounts fully operable within an hour but what follows after they receive the requisite money from the customers is raising flimsy and irrelevant grounds on delaying the proposal on some false pretext or the other as against finalising the same peremptorily. Dozens of the people come to me with the grievance of getting duped by such brokers and I am yet to make out a full fledged case for them to be taken up with the Government. In the meantime my advice to them is to generate necessary awareness in the masses to see that the traders in stocks keep themselves fully cautious and not fall into the brokers trap.
