The Kaipullai's Vetti Thoughts : The outer playground of my inner devil

History books tell us that only events of tectonic magnitude, like say the Vasco Da Gama journey, shapes the history of the world.

This post is not about events like that.

This post is about some random little incidents from Indian history. Incidents, which are inconspicuous when viewed in isolation. So inconspicuous in fact, that they were eliminated from our History books.

Can’t blame the textbooks though. I mean what is the worst that they could have missed by not mentioning a single arrow, a pencil stroke or a nod of the head?

It is not as if these things influenced our History.

Why do we write? To express? To impress? I believe writing puts in perspective the thoughts of the writer to himself/herself. Writing  liberates you from your thoughts and frees up your mind to analyse them. Written word has a powerful impact on a reader. And when your own thoughts,ideas,reflections have that impact on you, they bring a coherence to the chaos. You begin to see a more apparent picture that has been hidden until then. So what do I hope to achieve from starting a blog? Honestly, I haven’t the faintest idea. Seems like a good idea right about now. Probably want to bring clarity to myself. Or just randomly rant. Whatever the reason, I am going ahead with this for now. Maybe I’ll realize the reason later on. Sometimes reason is not required.  When you feel like doing something, just do it. Fixating on the consequences will take away the joy of the action. And being happy is what its all about.

Putting my thoughts to words has always given a sense of satisfaction. I am as private as I am expressive. To me, this is a step for the better. To use my oh-so-prided verbal skills for something constructive.
