    War Is Dead

    War is dead, at least for the great powers and the relatively well off. Once war was hand to hand combat and armies scourged the lands of the enemies.  Now we have  drones to do our killing for us.  One day we shall have land machines, controlled by soldiers in a remote...

    What Remains Constant

    When we lived in New Delhi in the 50s, I would accompany my parents to our ancestral home in Kartarpur every summer.  The journey between New Delhi and Kartarpur could take more than twelve hours.  On the train, I would sit in a window seat and stare outside at anything that...

    A tad bit irrelevant,

    but.... Don't want to live. Don't want to face death. We're all in the same boat... Death comes with uncertainty, is there something or not? But, so does life except unlike death, there is always something. Bad or good, every experience is worth living for. I'm in a place where...

    Secret Secret We All Have The Same Secrets

                some heddin acts, methods, believes and emotions that cannot be shared with any/some individuals would be another definition for the term "secret". Individuals share the same secrets separately for several reasons. It may be the human nature - as I observe - to...

    The Road To Awe

    What does it mean to attain clarity? Does one need a trial in which their soul is challenged beyond breaking point? Is a Man's soul measured by how he stays afloat in the sea of evil? Are we predestined to face damnation lest we be saved my some external form of intervention that...

    Does Anyone Really Understand What The Philosophy Of Life Is??

    All of our lives are so very different and no matter how hard we try to understand what our role in life is or what we truly love or want I don't think we will ever find the personal answers we crave. People make fortunes writing books about how to find happiness or improve self...

    Searching For Normal

    There are probably two "N" words in the English language for which I have absolutely no use (well, at least two...maybe more...and almost certainly more than words that start with "N").  One of these "N" words is one of the ugliest, detestable words I have ever heard in my...

    What Life Means To Me

    I think that life is about change--real, meaningful...even arguably-compulsory change...but it also so much more. It's about moving ahead and sometimes lagging behind. It's not only about appreciating, cherishing & holding on to every single moment of joy & happiness for...

    I always found secrets interesting.

    Why do we enjoy knowing someone's secret? To feel further connected to them? To feel special to them? To attempt to help our friends by hearing them out and know they're not alone? To feel like we have some kind of power over that person? What are your thoughts?
