What is White Matter

White matter is the brain tissue through which messages pass between different areas of grey matter within the nervous system. Using a computer network as an analogy, the grey matter can be thought of as the actual computers themselves, whereas the white matter represents the network cables connecting the computers together.

13 Squares - Pay for life!

Friday the 13th, on a clear day, an open air restaurant “13 Squares” inaugurated with very few guests on a round table. For a hefty 5000 Rs. entry-fee, it had an automated self-service system. There were sound censors all over the place, which could detect and analyze sound to serve the voice orders.

“Perfect! No waiters, no manager! What an innovation.” – One of them muttered while munching on his favorite pasta.

After a fine lunch and dessert, still there was silence within people. They did not know each other. One of them suggested an ice-breaker and all were agreed on playing “Antakshari”.

“Baithe-Baithe Kya Karen, Karna Hai Kuchh Kaam, Shuru Karo Antakshari Leke Prabhu ka Naam. - Ma”

“Main hoon Jhum-Jhum Jhumru Phakkad Ghunghroo Pahanke Ghumu, Main hoon Jhum-Jhum Jhumru -Ra” - One uncle started with an old classic.

Everyone felt a ghungroo appeared on their legs with sounds. Whoa!

“Rimjhim Gire Saawan,Sulag Sulag Jaaye Man, Bheege Aaj Is Mausam Mei, Lagee Kaisi Ye Agan- Na”

Soon the dark clouds appeared over the restaurant and drizzling started. However everyone was feeling uneasy as burning sensation in whole body and the brain even in rain.

“Na bole tum na maine kuch kaha, magar na jaane aisa kyun laga,Ki dhup mein khila hai chand, Din mein raat ho gayee,pyar ki bina kahe sune hi baat ho gayee - Ee” – One aunty sang this beautiful romantic song.

The sky above ripped off in 2 parts, one as a day with hot sunshine, another as a night with a moon. It was kind of magic, which people were actually enjoying with little of burning sensation though.

“Ek din aap yun humko mil jaayenge, phool hi phool rahon mein khil jaayenge,maine socha na tha - Tha” – A young lady sang from heart.

Soon the floor was covered with beautiful flowers.

“Thandi Hawayen Lahrake Aayen - Ya”

The cold waves started and everyone was shivering.

“Yeh raat bheegi bheegi, Madmast fizayen, Sone bhi nahi deta, ye chaand pyara pyara.- Ra”

It started raining again with a beautiful moonshine.

“Raat Ke Dhaai Baje Koi Shehnai Baje,Dil Ka Baazaar Laga Dhela Tak Paai Baze – Ja”

Clock ticked towards 02:30 AM, wedding music played things around people like spoon, knives, stones etc.  and everyone’s heart displayed a price tag.

“Jeena Yahan, Marna Yahan, Iske Siva Jaana Kahan - Ha”

All the 13 guests had a cardiac arrest.Soon there was no living body left and remained a deep silence. The self cleaning process started at 4:00 AM and the place was calm as nothing happened.
