Train Tales

-The Social Antidote

A few years ago my country embarked on a very extravagant project to build a modern railway line. With a $3.6 Billion price tag we all expected much from it. Anyways, these are the first-hand tales of a billion dollar project from a second class seat of a broke college student.

The Social Antidote

The Standard Gauge Railway. Dubbed as the most expensive project since independence I had a lot of expectations for this experience. Probably you might’ve have already guessed how this went. Same ending like any grand mega super-duper multi billion project we’ve had in Kenya. Blatant smoke blowing that’s as intentional as my puns. Now I might have been three years late, very ironic for someone who lives down at the coast so I’ve been told. However, I’m certain my experience would haven’t been any different as it was during its maiden trip. Unless, it got robbed in the middle. And after saying this out loud and realizing our track record so far as a country, or records for literally accuracy….. Just maybe. We got a reputation to maintain.

A polymath is a person with knowledge in a wide range of topics. Polymaths go far beyond the Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none level of understanding and experience. These are experts in multiple fields. We often think of the Renaissance when we think of polymaths, Leonardo DaVinci being among the most famous. But there have been several throughout history. And Aristotle was one of them.

We tend to think of him as a philosopher. But among his many fields of expertise were arts, sciences, economics, politics, and metaphysics.

As this is a writing site, we’re going to talk about Aristotle’s contributions to literature. Not his work itself, but his defining of the terms comedy and tragedy.
