Assurance of walking with God Billy Our Story 

My problem with God | Seasons of waiting.

I have a problem with God. He has stopped his one-on-one communication and that’s creating a lot of confusion here on earth. Problems that would have been easily solved if He’d just talk. I don’t ask God to come down and talk to me; it’ll be hard to survive that encounter (if you know what I mean). For me, a little dream here and there would work. Oh wait, I’ve got an idea! God, if you are reading this, please comment. 🙂 (I promise it’ll be a secret; none of…

Stop encouraging begging, inspire them to educate themselves.

Standing on railway stations, waiting for delayed trains can have its own perks. You can learn and reflect a lot just by observing your surroundings. I remember once such instance that has struck me through all these years. As we stood there waiting for our delayed train busy in our talks, we were approched by a small girl asking for money. Her innocence combined with my pity made me sympathize her situation. As she approched my sister, my hands were already in my pocket to take out some change. Waiting…

Learning from Japan’s train discipline.

Believe me, there is a place not far from India where trains come and depart on time. As a passenger who has spent endless hours in platform waiting for a train. This doesn’t look real. But Japanese train companies are serious about time management. Their trains are perfectly timed, to the second. The thought of looking at Japanese train system came to mind last week. When I had 3.5 hours of free time in Allahabad station. My train, due to come at 22:00 came at around 00:00 and stayed another hour…

Learning from America’s school shootings and a Sowers announcement.

I remember clearly when I was in school, bringing a mobile phone during my senior year was the bravest thing I could do and kids these days are bringing automatic rifles. Times are changing and the results speak for themselves. At least 130 students have died during school hours due to gun violence, states the Washington Post’s report. America is fighting hard to keep her temples of knowledge from turning into hunted places which breed fear. America clearly needs stricter gun laws. But, is that it? and how can Indian learn from…

India’s faith in godmen and why it’s wrong.

In the past two years, India has seen the conviction of two godmen charged with raping a minor, murder and inducing riots. Millions used to watch them on television and thousands gathered in their pandals. Their followers had such piety towards them, towards these men of flesh and bone. That it became so easy for these self-proclaimed godmen to manipulate and extort money and raise their empire of gold with a combined net worth which surpasses ten thousand crores.

What is beautiful? Really?

Scrolling through my Instagram stories I stumbled upon this one story that got my attention. First, it got me confused, thinking how is this even possible. Trying to learn more about the image, I cross-checked every word of what I read. Though the meme was based on twisted facts, it lead me to know something really important about history and changed my perspective. Imagine a protagonist, a serene face, thick curly hair reaching her shoulders, black unibrow, and a subtle mustache is approached by thirteen young handsome boys to ask…
