The Highway
Some roads should never be taken.

§  By Jay Krishna

9:36 A.M
Jessica was doing a final check, to see if she had packed everything for the trip. The summer vacations had just begun, she and her friends Sneha, Vivek, Rohan and Abhi were very excited for their visit to Leh. Vivek honked the car. Jessica "Be there in a minute". "I just can't understand these girls; they are never ready on time" muttered Rohan. Meanwhile Vivek started playing his favourite song 'Highway to Hell' by AC/DC on the cassette player. Rohan "Check this out man! All packed for the trip", showing the stack of beer he had purchased. Jessica came rushing, "Sorry guys!", when she saw Rohan with the beers "You guys can never change, can you?". Vivek "What's there to change? we are men, save water drink beer, that's our moto". Jessica nods her head in dismay. Sneha "Just ignore them Jessica, or else they will start giving you a lecture on the benefits of beer". Abhi saw Jessica enter the car and waved silently. Rohan "Oh ho! Abhi Babu, what happened? Won't you say Hi to your beloved Jessica". "What the crap are you saying?" Abhi shouted. Vivek "Just relax Abhi, Rohan keep quiet, we haven't even started yet, so are you guys ready?". Everyone nodded in agreement. Vivek "So let's go!". Vivek started the engine and they were off. Jessica took out her headphones and started to listen to her mp3's, while Sneha and Rohan were discussing about what they were going to do when they get there. While Abhi kept silent the whole time, admiring the view and Jessica in between.
12:15 P.M
Vivek stopped by at a dhaba. Jessica accompanied Sneha to the wash room. Rohan, "Shall I join you guys?". Abhi, "Rohan what are you saying? Are you mad?". "Just relax bro! I was just joking" replied Rohan. Abhi "I don't like these kind of jokes". Vivek, "Just relax Abhi he was just joking". On hearing Vivek, Abhi quieted down. "Well it would be better if we had lunch here, the next stop is not for another 3 hours" said Vivek. They got themselves a table, meanwhile the girls had arrived. Sneha "So what are we having?".  "Hey Vivek! Wanna open a couple of beers?" asked Rohan. "Sure! Why not" replied Vivek. They all had their lunch and made on their way.
Sneha "Vivek I think you should let Abhi drive the car". "What are you saying? I only had a couple of beers, Im totally fine" answered Vivek. Meanwhile Abhi and Jessica were having a chat. Vivek got in the car and they all followed suit. Rohan started bursting the stereo with his MP3's. Sneha, "Rohan can you please turn off the music, my ears are gonna bleed after some time". "Don't be such a wuss", replied Rohan, increasing the volume further. Abhi and Jessica too joined Sneha in the dispute. Meanwhile Vivek was enjoying the scene. It seemed everyone was having a swell time together. While fighting over the volume Abhi saw an old man waving them to stop, Abhi told Vivek to stop the car, but Vivek was in a world of his own.  80, 90,100 touched the speedometer when all of a sudden, they heard a sound, there was silence the next minute.
01:13 P.M
Abhi opened his eyes. He could see the clear blue sky. He wasn't aware what had just happened, His body felt numb. Slowly he started gaining conscience, pain surged through his whole body. He started crying. He looked around and saw Sneha beside him, shrieking in pain. He wanted to get close to her but couldn't. He slowly moved his head around and saw Rohan pinned to the car door. He mumbled out his name, but there was no response. Then he remembered about Jessica, he looked around hard as he could but wasn't able to find her anywhere. One by one people started to appear at the scene. Abhi shouted out to them for help, but no-one could hear him. He again looked at Sneha, but she had already left them. He kept shouting and crying, but not a single person came forward to help him and his friends. After almost an hour, Abhi could see some people rush towards him. They picked him up and started rushing him towards the van. On his way, he could he finally spot Jessica. She was there, lying on the ground. She had her eyes closed. Abhi started calling her name. The onlookers watched him, but weren't able to make out what he was trying to say. Abhi kept shouting to Jessica, she seemed so peaceful. He wasn't able to spot any bruises, but she was not moving at the same time. He had a look at all of them, when the doors were finally closed.

'Often Questionable' By Monisha Das | Digital Infotainment

Often Questionable.

By Monisha Das.

Monalisa Di: “Hi! How are you?”.

Me: “Hello Di! You here, am good”.

Monalisha Di: “Yes, had some work. So, what major are you in?”.

Me: “Psychology”.

Monalisha Di: “Whoa! So you can tell me everything by looking at my face, right? Tell me what am I thinking right now?”.

Me smiling with no answer in return.

Well, what else would you even expect me to say, at that very moment other than just smile for no apparent reason whatsoever. Not do just one or two people ask me or my friends, but often everyone does, when they hear about what background I am from. Only a psychology student can understand the reason for my uncanny smile.

Being a candidate of psychology. I would like to clear up one thing that most people have a misconception of. Human beings have not got the super natural powers yet, to determine and say what the other person is thinking without his/her knowledge or without communicating with the individual directly. Studying psychology does not mean that! It means a lot, from different perspectives. Psychology has many different motives other than the misconception of revealing things on spot without any knowledge of the individual. In fact, the thing is every human being can study people after observing the person’s behaviour(pattern). The type of words or sentences the person speaks, which is linked to how optimistic he or she is towards the perspective etc.
The word psychology is derived from the Greek word ‘roots’ meaning study of the psyche, or soul and ‘logia’(logy) meaning ‘study of’ or ‘research’. Psychology which is the study of behaviour and mind, embracing all aspects of the conscious and unconscious experience as well as thought as an academic discipline and social science which seeks to understand the individuals and groups by establishing general principles and research specific people, on the other hand, often misunderstood the concept of reading mind, omitting the behavioural part that comes former and links up with the mind and they end up thinking it is the look at the face and things only.

Though through observation during conversation, one can identify the mood, personality, following the body language as an indicating factor of how truthful the other person is being, able to focus, become attentive on a particular task. One important thing is to understand people’s moods, depends upon the body language, how the other person shows; whether the particular person has a ‘Closed hand posture’ or a ‘Open hand posture’, backward or forward body posture and so on.

Psychology is a science like physics, chemistry or biology, because they all employ the scientific method. Scientist employ a certain philosophy towards the entire issue of learning about nature. In fact, this philosophy starts with the way scientists try to conceptuate nature”.

Statistically speaking, Psychology has no exact value in return, unlike Physics, measuring human behaviour isn’t really as easy as measuring the speed of light. Most behaviours are assumed, predictable according to the environment in which the study is conducted, during measurement of human behaviour, rather than extracting and identifying a specific human behaviour in one person and generalising it as an outcome regarding to a situation for all different individuals; in Psychology, it is very important that there are individual differences and therefore people exist with different personalities. There are two personalities, although there are three to be counted:

1.    Introvert: Introvert personality consist of traits like timid, less confident towards public speaking, calm.

2.  Extrovert: Extrovert personality refers to the traits like open minded, confident and expressive nature.

3.  Ambivert: Ambivert personality in other words, include both introvert and extrovert personalities. This means people are introvert and extrovert, referring to different situations faced in life.

Well in my case, to be frank, I am an Ambivert personality, for which I find dealing with situations according to the need of being quiet in one and become exposed on the other hand in nature.
In my opinion, it isn’t a big deal, if we possess both the personalities, being an Ambivert myself. It helps to handle situations intellectually, regarding different environments rather than only one for self, during self-realization and working on a particular thing effectively. Furthermore, keeping aside the ego thing for a while to learn things in life, evaluate and express in nature.

"The above article is written by Monisha Das of Handique Girls College Guwahati. The main topic of discussion is Psychology and how a few have a wrong perception of the same. The article walks around her experience as a student of Psychology and certain situations she has faced.
