Actions sans logic
I fail to understand why women wear high heel foot wear and carry heavy vanity bags all the while. These are considered to be unhealthy. High heels affect posture, put pressure on joints, and can lead to a range of conditions including arthritis, hammer toes, back pain and tendon injuries and that's before you take into account any heel-related accidents! Similarly lugging around a heavy handbag can lead to serious back problems and neck pain as well as poor posture. For that matter, why people, especially the men folk in India smoke? Smoking gets you nothing but a horde of physical ailments.
"I lurk in the shadows of the normal world. A recorder of sins, I dwell in the gray of secrets and lies. I capture images of infidelity, and follow the printed trails of stolen promises. Nothing stays hidden from me, no matter how deeply it’s buried. I am a purveyor of all that is protected, and I am very good at my job." Raquel Byrnes wrote in his novel ‘Purple Knot’ for a spy.
Same holds true for an investigative reporter.

You do not feel happy when the party is heading for a division.Why some second wrung party leaders and works are distributing sweets?
