A strange person I met

I saw a strange girl named Amrita, last week. I still cant comprehend that such a person can exist. She has a phobia towards everything. Fear of crowds, fear of crossing roads, fear of dogs, fear of rain, fear of darkness, fear of getting hurt,................................ She doesnt like to eat, doesnt like to sleep.(she sleeps for 3 hrs a day).

We study in the same college, ( I have taken Phy, Chem & Math, and she has taken Chem and Bio). We had met earlier(around a year and a half ago), and sit in the same Chem class, every week. But, I never knew that she had all these problems. I came to know about her, when I was returning from a lecture by Prof. CNR Rao, at IISc (Bangalore).

I was just discussing something about the lecture with a friend of mine called Chandan, who was a classmate of hers. She was also there. So, we decided to go home, (which wasnt far away). But, she said she couldnt go the short way, because she could not cross the road, to catch a bus on the other side of the road. At first, I thought she was just kidding. On seeing Chandan and her taking the long route, however, I too decided to go the long way, because, I was discussing something serious with Chandan. Then, in her every step, I saw that strangeness of being scared of everything. It didnt take long for me to realize that she also had problems of short term memory. I felt like crying, thinking about her, on everything she would say. But, I composed myself and didnt allow any such signs to show, as it would make her feel worse.

Outwardly, she is very friendly and jovial. Amidst the strange feelings running through me then, we were laughing and laughing and laughing.......... throughout, for about an hour and a half.

According to Chandan she is probably in a state of hypnotism, in which she is scared of her fears, with no reasons. Whether it is true, time will tell. But, whatever be it, I just hope that there is some cure for this.

College Physics NewsLetter

Our college recently(Aug 25th) inaugurated a bimonthly Physics Newsletter. I am one of the editors. I also have written an article in the 10 page newsletter. I expected to feel something special doing this. But, somehow, it didn't happen that way. I dont know why!

My Site

Yeah! I have created a site to showcase the artwork I have created. The artwork was done as a part of my freelancing work, many of them which I found to be nice , but did not get selected, due to various reasons. I couldnt get a penny out of all the art so far, but, I know that the good days aren't far.

Here's my site : lancealot.topcities.com

Hey folks! Do you know about wikipedia? It is an open encyclopaedia. That is, you can view it for free, and also contribute articles to it, in a very convenient matter. It is a great place to write articles, and also to search for anything you want. (It keeps popping up in many Google searches, meaning that it is quite popular). The website is www.wikipedia.org Check it out!
