Weve all heard that word, havent
Weve all heard that word, havent we?
If you havent, for your benefit paradox is a seemingly absurd statement that when researched is proven to be true.
Paradoxes are interesting things and are a component of literature, and real life that I find sheer genius. But like always, I always have favorites. Other than the general paradox of life, the one paradox that I really love is the paradox of Pinocchio.
We all know Pinocchio, the boy whose nose would grow every time he lied. But have you ever thought about what would happen if Pinocchio said, My nose will grow now. Well if you havent, spoiler alert: It would lead to a paradox. Heres why.
So obviously, Pinocchios nose grows each time he lies. So if he said, My nose will grow now, if his nose does grow that means he wasnt lying. But plot twist, if he wasnt lying then that would technically mean his nose shouldnt grow. But then in an unsurprising turn of events, that means that he was lying, so it would mean that his nose has to grow. But that would mean his statement was true, so his nose wouldnt grow. And the cycle repeats.
In other words, if his nose grew it wouldnt be a lie, but it only grows if its a lie.
The best part about this is that this paradox was thought of by an eleven-year-old girl by the name Veronique Eldridge-Smith in 2001.
The movie ended. This train of thought didnt. In retrospect, honestly I dont think anyone in the theatre even bothered to spare a thought my way. But yet something as simple as going for a movie unnerved me to my core. I didnt realise when I had begun to care about what people thought of me. This whole experience was terrorizing and exhilarating at the same time. I dont remember half of the movie, but what I did take away from this is that Maybe I needed to pay attention to my own company a little more. I needed to take a step back and just embrace all of the weirdness that I come with. Saying it and advocating it wasnt enough, I had to live it myself. I had to love it first, I had to love me, and my company first myself. After all in the words of Oscar Wilde, To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance. And I intend to start as soon as possible. Do you?

At the roof of the world or as often called Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet stands a gigantic castle that in certain times is said to appear to be crowned with flames. The Potala Palace has been a palace, a fortress and a site of divine pilgrimage. A palace that can be reached only by crossing a great ring of mountains through high passes, the difficulties in reaching Potala are all a part of its mystique.
A wonderful monument of Tibetan architecture, it took seven thousand laborers to build this stronghold of masonry. It is said the large hole created by excavating stone for the building from the hillside behind the palace, now filled with water forms a lake called the Dragon King Pool.The Potala is a labyrinth of painted galleries, wooden and stone stairways and luxuriously bedecked prayer rooms, that houses almost 2, 00,000 invaluable statues.
It was once home to religious monks of Tibet, and before the Chinese occupation still served as the home and winter palace of the ruler and was the physical symbol of his spiritual and earthly powers. It is said the private treasuries of the Dalai Lamas, a collection of ceremonial brocade robes, exquisite jewelry and gems still rest in the Potalas strongrooms. Today, however, it can be visited as a museum and shrine.

Castles have always enchanted me for as long as I can remember. The incredible architecture, the magnificent interiors, the grand rooms, the majestic pillars, just the general beauty of it- you get the idea. Ive been pretty enamored by them. Somehow every time I visit a castle it feels like it speaks of a different time when everything was so different, so grand and so royal. Ive spent a lot of time looking up and reading on the different castles of the world, and every single one of them fascinates me as much as the next one! But obviously, I have a few favorites.

Against a stunning scenery of dark green fir trees, perched above the jagged ravines of the River Pollat in the Bavarian Alps, stands the castle of Neuschwanstein. The castle whose ivory towers appear to be hanging in the air is the lovechild of the fantasies and fortune of King Ludwig of Bavaria and the artistic abilities of the composer Richard Wagner.
Termed also as the worlds most magical castle, the Neuschwanstein, is a five-storey Romanesque structure. There was no expense spared in recreating the fantasies of the King, he employed the finest craftsmen, painters, sculptors, and woodcarvers. Such was the grandeur of Neuschwanstein, that the small indoor version of the grotto of Venus, has a cascading waterfall and an artificial moon.
His obsession with his building projects caused Ludwig to be murdered, but he once is said to have written to Wagner, that when they were both long dead, their work will still be a shining example to distant posterity. The magnificent citadel is the validation of his words.
