Urban Legends


What are they? Heard a friend talk about some urban legend stories… But what exactly are they

I fall back to my dear wiki which says this

An urban legend, urban myth, or urban tale is a form of modern folklore consisting of stories thought to be factual by those circulating them. Like all folklore, urban legends are not necessarily false, but they are often distorted, exaggerated, or sensationalized over time.

Another definition of Urban Legends

Urban legends (also known as contemporary legends) are apocryphal, secondhand stories, told as true and plausible enough to be believed, about horrific, embarrassing, exasperating, or ironic things that have supposedly happened to real people. For all practical purposes the present-day equivalent of the legends and fables of old, urban legends tend to revolve around the most vexing aspects of modern life.

No doubt Urban Legends make an interesting read. Crop circles is one such urban legend. Will talk about that in a future post.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
