I realized after going to the kitchen that there wasn’t any milk carton left on top of the freezer. I wasn’t going to use my chest freezer, so I had stacked bakery goods, milk, cereals on its top to have easier access to them instead of fetching them from the pantry. The pantry was still a mess– it needed cleaning. 

I had written two memos to myself to get milk. As is usual with me the memos disappear someplace, and I never remember to get the essentials. At the back of my mind, I do get niggling thoughts that I am forgetting something. Oh what is it? I never can remember, and the lost memos won’t re-surface to remind me, except when they are long past the day they were written. Does this happens to me only, or there are others like me?

Even gazing at everything in the shops, trying, and willing my brains to remember what I need, doesn’t do the trick. It’s only when I am back home for good, the realization dawns that I didn’t get the items I needed.

I felt dejected  that I wasn’t going to have a cup of tea. No milk meant no tea.

Needing oil for frying I went to get it from the pantry. There they were— the missing cartons of milk. I had plopped a few on top of the freezer, and the rest I had deposited in the rack in the pantry.

Brain Power
Let’s assume we do, in fact, use only 10% of our brain. If you could unlock the remaining 90%, what would you do with it?


It’s just a myth that ten percent brain is used. Brain cells that are not used have the tendency to degenerate. If ninety percent of the brain was inactive, the autopsy of the brain would have revealed large scale degeneration.

The brain works even when we are sleeping. It runs all the life support processes to keep us alive, rebuilding, and revitalizing our body.
