Share No Need To Die And Go To Heaven
2018-8-8 19:28
I have often heard that someone ‘died and went to Heaven’. It came as a surprise revelation to me when I realized that, I have stayed alive and come to Heaven. I look around and find it very familiar. It looks just like the area around where I live. I was walking outside, this evening after dark. It had rained earlier in the day and the skies had cleared up. I could feel a cool and yet exhilarating pleasant dampness as I looked up and saw the stars bright ...

Share The Sick Old Man
2018-6-15 11:50
Wisps of hair, like streaky clouds Gathered 'round his head He lay under a tattered quilt Reclining on his bed The musty air smelled, Oh! so foul As I manfully held the bowl He struggled so noisily with his breath I feared he just might cough to his death A spoon of soup I tried to feed him Some dribbled down his chin He looked at me with his rheumy eyes ...

Share Flowers Of The Dust - In Memory of Friends Departed
2018-5-28 07:11
In memory of all friends who have departed this world. Phir khiloge Phir miloge (Dhool Ke Phool) ****************** Thum dharthi ke dhool ho, Kise ke pyaar ke phool ho, Khushi diya hai thumne hume khilkar Yaaden diye thumne humse milkar Aaye the kuch pal behakaane Chaman-e-zindagi-ko mehakaane Phoolon ka tho maqsad hi hai murjhana khilkar Aur ek din reh jaana phir dhool se milkar Par tere baad bhi wo mehak raheg ...

Share An Atheist's 'Hinduism As I Understand It'
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
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)
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
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
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?
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 ...
