A Valentine’s card for the heart that is punny.
Today is “Gudi Padwa” an Indian Festival. I did this silly comic last year on it, which I hope you guys like. I know I haven’t been posting lately, there’s a lot on my mind. Looks like I was doing my apologizing bit last Gudi Padwa as well….
Time is a circle, it seems. <— A real smartass excuse for not posting, right?
Anyway, I’ll be posting soon – lots of wisdom from the bottomless wisdom-hole, lots more comics and some other things.
I apologize for being away for so long. With all the academic load, regularly updating the blog would have required adding a few more hours to the day. But that’s the past. I’m back for good, and will try to find a regular rhythm for my posts.
In the meantime, I give you THIS!(look down). Practicing drawing these comic strips and all the studying, is what I’ve been doing while I was away. Hopefully by the end of the year I will be able to launch my own web-comic(Yay!!)
A little back-story of this comic –
31st of March wasGudi Padwa (an Indian festival).
“Gudi” sounds like “Goodie” and “Padwa” is amarathi word that can and IS often misinterpreted to mean “to intentionally drop”. Join those two together and you get “DROP THE GOODIE!”
I often see people saying things like, “Look how great and big the universe is and how small and insignificant we are.”, but these same people don’t look at things under a microscope and say, ” Look how small that is and how big and great we are.” Both statements are faulty, I fail to see how the diagnosis made from the comparisons make sense(what does size have to do with being insignificant or being great?).
I doubt most would accept it, but misanthropy is everywhere, to the point that we are literally bombarded with the bad side of people(individuals) 24×7. So I don’t think its that difficult to not only overlook the good, but to not want to see it anymore. So for once I would like to highlight the good, the great in man.
When compared with animals in general, we see that:-
-we don’t have claws and/or fangs to defend ourselves with.
-we aren’t quick enough to get away from most predators.
-we don’t have beast like strength.
– we aren’t big so we can’t scare the predators away, or small enough not to be noticed by them.
– we don’t have poison glands/fangs in our bodies to threaten predators with.
– we can’t swim or fly away when a threat approaches.
– we don’t have exoskeletons or hard bodies to protect ourselves with.
– our bodies can’t even protect us against cold.
When it comes to physical prowess, we lie somewhere in the middle(even that is stretching it too far).
So when I consider those points, on one hand I think how fragile man is,
[Now, watch this video]
but on the other hand after watching videos like this one and looking at people doing these crazy amazing things with their “fragile” bodies, I can’t help but think, “People are AWESOME.”
By the end of the video, I’m sure it will have you smiling. It sure had me beaming all the way.
