Citizen War Diary April 28, 2012 : Maslows Hierarchy

Posted by recnamorcen99 on December 17, 2008

Nuclear winter arrives

Nuclear winter arrives

Three red cherries on the barren brush. Winter arrives early. Maybe it never ended.

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to move from being RICH one instant.. and WORTHLESS in the very next? Yes it happened in the past when stock markets crashed. But then there were signs. Signs that the trained brain could read and analyse.

This time the Elelctromagnetic pulse took everyone by surprise. We never thought they’d do it. But suddenly – one fizzle and we were back to the Stone age (or somewhat near it). All electronic data was wiped clean in an instant. All civilian and military electronics in the NCR and nearby areas ceased operation. We had shielded some of the hard military and economic sections  – but we never thought they’d up the ante and increase the payload. So from a 7% growth to an unrecordable number.

That’s how fast we went, our money went and there was worse to follow.

Suddenly we were hit with DEFLATION….. I was worth just that much paper money that I had on me. Gold was in the bank locker – inaccessible. I may have looked better – but was worth essentially the same as the beggar on the street.

Food riots followed!

Then there were water riots.

The Hindu Muslim issue cropped up from time to time and there were those riots too.

We did not know how to vent out, how to survive, so we killed.

It was a horror filled walk down Maslows hierarchy of needs…..

CITIZEN WAR DIARY – April 15, 2012 (TODAY)

Posted by recnamorcen99 on December 13, 2008

It’s very easy to get depressed, the way things are. We were not always like this.
I was a cherubic , 30 year old bald man once with a lot of enthusiasm and qualified myself in the category of the brave and loving.
That was a time of plenty.

Today, I must stand in line, a long line – to get the basic foodstuffs. If they are available that is. The wretched have inherited this parched earth. There is a constant wind that whistles through the holes in the wall – courtesy a munition that went off track and exploded outside the house. They said LASER guided munitions never went off track and missed by very little. I guess this writer must be on their priority hit-list and the bomb missed by just that much.
They didn’t get me, but brought my life to an inflection point.
I lost my power of focus. Now I survive – I used to live.

I was an avid photographer. I was always on the prowl with my camera. All the pictures had been stored on my hard drives. I’d printed them out as required for my albums. That was all that was left. The ones on the hard drive had died there. The EMP from the blasts above New Delhi had fried all the electronics in a very large radius. Suffice it to say, no one but the military uses electronics now. There is in fact a peoples movement which shuns the use of anything but the implements from the stone age. They believe that technology was our downfall. A nation of a billion souls now operating at 70% effectiveness.

The whistling wind signals the arrival of the rain. It’s time to get indoors. The rain is dangerous and not many survive it. I take one last look around for the day. The sun is close to the end of its daily cycle and it’s time to shut shop and move inside to my solitary confinement armed with my trusty shotgun and enough ammunition to take out an army – if I survive that long that is.

The Citizen War Diary – Apr 14,2012

Posted by recnamorcen99 on December 12, 2008

This is India – 2012.
I am her citizen. The name is Arjun.
I stand under the door frame of my house looking outwards towards the bleak and somewhat charred landscape. This was one of the biggest residential colonies once.
That “once” was not too far back – just a few years.
In 5 days we would have completed our 5th wedding anniversary.
I wonder if hope survive when you float and look for that last bit, that last twig to hold onto.
Nothing left for me to old onto here. Just the distant memories of what was and the feeling that maybe – things could have been different.

Wishful Musings!!

Between the devil and the deep blue sea

Between the devil and the deep blue sea

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion… wine and women will do that!!

img_2384I like beer ‘cos it is good
I drink beer because I should
If there was a song to sing
I sing it and beer you bring
I drink beer when I am sad
”cause the beer it makes me glad
Now there’s nothing left to say
So lets go drink beer

Self Promotion

Posted by recnamorcen99 on December 11, 2008

I’ve been a firm believer in the adage that it is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.

Of course a lil nudge here and there also helps!
But the opportunities and temptation for self promotion are extremely high in today’s day and age.
I mean you have the WWW and all its accompaniments. There’s so much of me on the internet – that an INTERNET ADEPT person could find out a lot about me (if he/she wanted to that is)

The only thing that keeps us from looking is the high probability of an information overdose. Me – i love finding out stuff about folks I know.. kinda like a ferret (all within the legal boundaries though).

But i somehow frown upon self promotion…

Alice wonders!!

Posted by recnamorcen99 on December 10, 2008

It’s not like we know it.

Alice never really went to WONDER land.. she actually kept wondering what the fuss was all about. It’s time to open our eyes and look around and see the reality that is hidden from all but the most skeptical.

List to George Carlin sometime and you won’t feel so smart after all. May his soul RIP.

This is not my first outing in the blogosphere. I’ve been around for a bit on other formats. I’m here to figure out what the fuss is all about – Alice, the tea party and the mad hatter. I keep wondering how they lost my invitation in the mail. I’ve been searching for the lucky HOLE for quite sometime now. No Luck there either.

Maybe Alice was on LSD. Just a thought though.
