The Devil and the Deep Sea- Clinton vs Trump

Well, this was how they looked during the debate.
Maybe Trump a little more funnier and Clinton a bit more freaky. Thats it.

After Barack Obama , I really can't imagine either of them being called Mr. or Madam President. Well, I saw the debate. There are two differences that I found between the ones held in my college and the Presidential Debate.

#1.- Us- We fight like mad people. Literally screaming to get ourselves heard over the other's
       Them- Hillary Clinton was giving a freaky smile, showing all her 32 teeth ( i am just assuming,                      there may be less) the whole time while Donald Trump was the improvised version of                          Donald Duck himself.

#2.- Us- We talk to the point.
       Them- They spoke in circles.

Similarities ?

We take everything personally and so do they.

Okay. So here is the summary.

The debate was of 90 minutes, divided into 6 segments in which they would discuss various topics. The questions were not known to the candidates and were entirely Lester Holt's. That was the part I thoroughly enjoyed partly because I was fresh and the thought of seeing a "Presidential Debate" had me charged up. I rather Holt was one of the candidates himself and not the moderator.

Coming to the "Presidential Debate".
A 2- minute video was put up on Snapchat which prompted me to see the whole debate. Both parties spoke well. But they are speakers. That's part of their job. No points on that. Clinton reminded me of my numerous teachers who would complete one topic in 45 minutes by just going on in circles about the same thing. Only she went a step further. She managed to do this for 90 minutes.  The whole thing was basically about job opportunities.

I became a fan of Trump's expressions from the very beginning. When Clinton became monotonous, the screen would shift to Trump. See, even the cameraman knew.  But looks are deceptive. Trump actually got Clinton to talk on a topic she didn't know about. That's the reason behind all the Job Opportunities stuff.

One difference between the candidates:
Trump kept on referring to America as "our" country.
Clinton said "you" and "us".

I would close by adding Scott Adams' conclusion to my article:

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).

Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Raising slogans of "Major Kaustubh Rane, Amar Rahe" and …

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
