Which Phobia do you have?

Phobia -

235x96_top-indivine-postWhat are you scared of? What is that thing or that place or that person which makes you sweat and makes your heart pound fast? In short, let me ask you:

What Phobia do you have?

Phobia, as per Wikipedia is:

“A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational. In the event the phobia cannot be avoided entirely, the sufferer will endure the situation or object with marked distress and significant interference in social or occupational activities.”

In a layman’s language, anything that you are scared of, you have ‘Phobia’ of that thing / situation / person, etc. If darkness brings chills to your bones, you are afraid of darkness and you have phobia. This phobia is called – Myctophobia. As far as I can tell, Myctopobia is one of the most common phobias ever.

But. Phobia of darkness or being in a dark place is still understood. What I don’t understand is the fear of Sunshine! Really!? How can anyone be scared of sunshine?? The phobia of sunshine is called – Phengophobia! If this is not strange enough, read about next phobia. And, trust me – you would not want to miss the last one.

How times are changing

Hyper Market - Dhakkanz

I remember those days when I was quite young and my parents or grandparents would take me out for those household shopping. Those used to be small trips to either general stores for daily stuff or tiring walks at farmer’s market for fruits and vegetables.

Welcome Tech Revolution!

Then as the time went on, many things changed. How we spend time with family, with friends. Our ways of communicating changed from those old Telephones to Mobile Phones and from calls to SMSes, etc. Even our ways of spending time has changed. We now spend time on Internet to kill time.

Today is ‘Vijaya Dashami‘ and we all will be celebrating the success of Goodness over Bad. On this day, many years back, Rama had successfully taken over Ravana, who despite being a ultra-knowledgeable, did wrong deeds and hand to pay back with his life  – this we all know!

But do we know anything about how much did Ravana had to suffer…because of his 10 head!! No!! We do not know.

OK, lets assume that Ravana is still living in today’s time and this is how he would have suffered –

Ravana would have to buy toothpaste every week – he was using 10-times the per-capital usage! And, his toothbrush stand would look like this:



Not just that! Have you wonder how would he change his T-shirt (he had 10 heads, right?) Read more
