Catch-22


C2020

Its April of 2020 and Day 03 of A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing Metaphors. Be it a movie, song, painting, book, idiom, etc. I plan to give a perspective to it with an explanation and a 8 line poem. 


 

Day 03 Metaphor: Catch-22

Catch-22 is a novel by Joseph Heller. Catch-22 as a paradox, makes an escape impossible when one attempts to escape. A catch-22 is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations. Catch-22 has become one of the best-recognized ways to describe the difficulty of being trapped by contradictory rules.

From logic to scientific research, the term is used in many places. It’s more of a paradox than a metaphor. I personally like this paradox and plan to use it as a metaphor in my poem.

Poem:
Damn, you did it?
Damn, you didn’t?
Damn you!
I have rules,
Made for you,
You don’t know.
I don’t know either,
Oh dear, my catch-22.

Don’t you do that? To the ones you don’t like? Hate begets hate.

Carpe diem


AtoZ2019C

Its April of 2019 and Day 03 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: carpe diem
Language: Latin
Meaning: make the most of the present

Poem:
a passionate kiss to the day’s job,
instinct to trust one’s own wing,
the tiredness down the eye,
the comfort in the struggle,
the winks, the crush, the love,
the smallest parts of tiniest things,

now, that’s what I call,
carpe diem.

Interpretation: 
A leisure holiday at the beach is satisfying when earned the hard way. Making the most of the present has a mixture of love, struggle, dedication, ambition and believing in every tiny thing.

From the Research Diaries


Research is quite a long and tedious journey. One thing that keeps the journey exciting is the intermediate deliverable’s. I kind of opt to have them at regular intervals though they directly do not impact my work.

Here are two ebooks which i got completed and published recently which are indirect results of my research.

Ebook 01: Design of a Programmer
