Share The Most Basic Motivation For Wealth Creation
2019-2-4 09:57
Not all who are wealthy are at fault somehow. Many earn it honestly or inherit it legally, not at anyone else's expense. Not all who are poor and struggling are so due to someone else's fault. They truly have not earned wealth or sympathy in society. There are corrupt and honest rich, just like honest and corrupt poor. They each need to be treated differently, according to their nature, not their level of wealth. A single individual cannot use more than a certain amou ...

Share The Extremes ?
2019-2-3 09:03
SCENE 1 Sarah greeted her friends at the door, looking very happy and excited to see them, yet there was an unmistakable new calm and relaxed look to her. After they were all done squealing, jumping and hugging her in turns they wandered in. They all exclaimed at the elegance and beauty of the house, all the way from the front porch to the dining room via all the other rooms - on the standard house tour. The place was truly luxurious in an understated way - very upscale and hinted of obscenel ...

Share O, How The Times Have Changed!
2018-10-12 10:20
For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train. For a long tim ...

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 ...

In memory of all friends who have departed this world.

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. ...
