Secularism: A Nation that lost its focus
The idea of writing about “Secularism” caught my attention after understanding the present situation of India. People are being segregated based on religion and caste. I was listening to a song by the name of “Mile Sur Mera Tumahara (a song that has been sung in 14 languages spoken in India)”, which reflects the culture […]
Is 2020 The Year for you?
The only reason I am writing this blog post is to free myself of the guilt of not writing very often in twenty nineteen. I am guilty of not improving on my writing and not being active on the website. Somewhere in the last year, I decided that I had to focus more on my […]
Greater and better things you can do than spending time on the phone.
Let’s talk about things you can do that can help you cut down the time you spend on your phone and help you wean off. Like babies, we are about to try some solid food here! It is a straight-up truth and the sooner you realize, the better, that the time spent on your phone […]
Are you weaned off your phone yet?
You read that right. And If you didn’t understand what it really meant, you will, in just a moment. Let’s play with our imaginations for a little bit. Just bring to your mind a time and a place when you have looked up and seen a bunch of people around you, all staring at their […]
To which one of your evolutionary cousins, would you attribute your innate sense of ambition, dreams and self-worth?
I found the following quote on my friend’s status update… The mystery of Human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for. Fyodor Dostoyevsky And, it made me think. Not all people today know who the Russian novelist Dostoyevsky was, but they sure have figured out the truth of […]
The Man who Couldn’t speak But Smile | Reason for working.
I remember meeting this gentleman like it was yesterday. Such was his hospitality and warmth. It all happened when I along with two other classmates decided to get a cup of coffee at cafe coffee day. Our food was brought to us by this waiter. He came and stood in front of us with the […]
Prostitution: India and the World
A Brief History… Prostitution has existed in all parts of the World at some point in time. Looking into its history is a mind-boggling task indeed. The earliest known account of Prostitution as a profession is found in the Sumerian records, dating back to 2400 BCE. The Ancient Near East was the home of many […]
Intolerance and how to fight it with Human Dignity.
I would like to begin with a statement. “We as a society have forgotten tolerance“. The rope that binds us to the society and with others is made up of many threads. Tolerance is one of them and it is missing. The rope has been weakened. It is only a matter of time before we […]
Vulnerability: Friend or Foe?
When we do not encourage vulnerability (freedom to make mistakes) in our social platforms, our workplaces, and our homes we stop progress. Being vulnerable is being free to make mistakes and learn from them. Being vulnerable is being truthful and without a mask in front of you. Being vulnerable is being tolerant of others.
The Greatest Question you can ever ask..
Our World has been shaped by individuals who have often asked questions other people didn’t know could be asked. People didn’t even know those were even questions until someone from among them stood up and raised a finger. “The Reformation“, as we know it now, was the era where people began asking questions. They looked […]
The quest to become a Homo Deus
“The genie is out of the bottle. We need to move forward on artificial intelligence development but we also need to be mindful of its very real dangers. I fear that AI may replace humans altogether. If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that replicates itself. This will be a new form of […]
Honesty and Integrity
Two weeks ago I was asked by a doctorate student to speak on a topic that drew its theme from the book of Proverbs. I wanted to speak on Commitment. But, this topic didn’t fit with the given theme so I was asked to discuss this matter with the panel and confirm my topic. I […]
