Share An Atheist's 'Hinduism As I Understand It'
KIyer 2018-5-10 12:54
I have long been known as an atheist from the days of my youth. I used to rebel against blindly following what I could not understand or what no one could explain clearly. I have not changed much, but I have gathered my own understanding of the culture I was born into and the philosophies it represents. Here is my take on Hinduism as I understand it now. 1) Laws of Nature are the true Gods and Deities. 2) Only that which is eternally true is the One Constant God. The rest are ...

Share A Second Chance At Maths
KIyer 2018-5-3 11:10
I am planning to start a program where all grown-up and middle-aged folk got together, have a meal and socialize around a good fun math lesson - re-learning in fun way, without pressure all the Math in high-school that they may not remember fondly. They could try and understand Math at their own pace, no pressure of exams, of being wrong in front of their peers etc. One simple topic in each session, they could ask questions and learn without young fragile egos in play. I want to call it ...

Share An Ode to 'Zamaana' (The World Out There)
KIyer 2018-5-2 06:51
'Zamaana (the world)' is much reviled in our Indian poetry and shayari. I have a contrarian view in this piece. I have noted that 'Zamaana' itna bura to nahin, jitna banaya jaatha hai. Please note that this is not a complaint against the 'Apne (our own)' as opposed to 'Zamaana'. Personally, mere 'apne' have been wonderful too. I am just writing this piece from the third party view of what I have observed. Summary in English: "The world is not as bad as we make it out in poetry. ...

Share My God! No Need For Any Miracles
KIyer 2018-4-23 07:23
I do not wish to use the concept of God to explain away what I cannot otherwise understand by my knowledge or reason. I would rather admit to my ignorance and the limits of what I know and can understand and leave it at that while trying to learn more. God for me does not have to begin where my understanding ends or as a catch-all for all the ignorance of humanity. Any concept of God that I can subscribe to does not need to have miraculous po wers (even if many inspire awe and wonder), it ...

Share Set Out For The Day Packing A Smile, A Blessing and A Gun
KIyer 2018-4-21 20:53
From the combined stereotypical wisdom that I have acquired from the cultures I have lived in - (Indian spiritual and American practical), here is a suggested solution to reducing the problem of stressful modern life that seems to set off some individuals beyond their breaking point and explode in an act of violence against random or a targeted mass of people. This seems to be the result of a lifestyle that is associated with 'advanced' and 'developed' countries and societies today and has spre ...

Share EVIL or STUPID - Which is worse?
KIyer 2018-4-7 11:26
Which of the two is a greater danger to life in general and humans in particular? I have often pondered this question. I tried to figure this out using an approach of determining for myself which has caused more suffering and loss - Evil or Stupidity? It seems impossible to come to a definite conclusion. Just as I think there is evidence of conclusive evidence, I am surprised or reminded by a counter evidence. It would certainly be useful in determining which of the two is worse. Whi ...

Share Lucky Oldies, no social media growing up. Now is the time to have it.
KIyer 2018-4-5 07:17
In some ways I am quite thankful we did not have social media in my youth. Saved me from embarrassing myself in public when I would have also been more affected by how others viewed me. Probably true for many others of my generation. These technologies have come at the right time now for us. Even if we embarrass ourselves now we don't need to care too much about how others feel about our views and opinions. Youngsters, you have it tough! Copyright (c) KIyer 2018 Al ...

Share Microsoft Windows 10 - DISNEYLAND OR CANDY STORE IN A MINEFIELD??
KIyer 2018-3-19 11:52
Imagine designing an attractive, cool theme park like Disneyland to attract millions of eager, excited tourists or laying out a dreamland of candy stalls for children, all set in a minefield. I am sure we would all agree it would be a cruel thing to do. You see something attractive and head towards it and suddenly without your realizing it, BOOM!! you have stepped upon a mine and have been blown up. I recently upgraded to a personal computer running Microsoft Windows 10. ...
