This is a journal of the experiences of my life.

Tomorrow I am facing the test of my life. I am being interviewed by a School in Japan. And I hope to succeed in the interview. Hope God Jehovah Jesus’ blessings will turn the tide in favour for me.

Nothing spectacular or superb happened to my life today. Morning as usual I went to the town to buy cigarettes and lotteries. I am reading the Philosopher Jacque Derrida’s book: of grammatology. Yes meaning for him lies in difference, a philosophy which expostulates deferment and difference. The sign, the origin of all things lies in its signification and the sign is captured in the transcendentality of the metaphysics of presence. A reading of the text involves in the undoing of the presence of the sign. Texts appropriate meanings with the signification of presence and the negation of marginalization. From Derrida’s binary divide, I have developed a term known as Binary fusion. A text of binary fusion does not marginalize anyone but consists of the privileging of all. A simple example would h/er/is and his-her-story.  Another example would be Jazz music and Jazz is a text that has propelled black music and has universalized its essence.

When I see advertisements of Native English speaking teachers wanted to teach English, I feel peeved and discouraged.  The country where the sun never sets has ruled India for more than 150 Years and the language English was introduced and I wonder why I am not fit to be regarded to be considered as a native English teacher.

This month for me till now has been a worn-out month for me as I am having no luck in the lotteries. I have to beg from my mother for buying cigarettes. I hope tomorrow will be a better day and that I can have significant wins in the lotteries.  I hope the muse of luck will cast her wand in favour of me.

Luck is an uneasy mistress, all that aside, the prejudice of colonizers still astounds me, as they continue to perpetuate their dominance in modern society. The British Empire has destroyed others cultures and inserted their cultural norms as a substitute. I do hope you get hired in Japan! They have an excellent culture and are more open to outside influence. Good luck Anand!
