Why do writers write? Something to keep in mind while reading stuff online

Suddenly, writing and publishing have become so easy. Writing something and getting it published was so difficult a few decades ago; and look around now – there are writers, bloggers scattered all around us, all striving for getting eyeballs and attention. As I observe, if you use any social network, you are bound to stumble […]

When You Become a ‘Senior’

Being a senior puts a lot of responsibilities and opportunities on your shoulders. Most of the times, we en-cash the opportunities and forget the responsibilities. I experienced similar behavior from some seniors, few weeks ago and thought of sharing something on being a matured senior. One day or the other, all of us will pass […]

Are Our Religious Rituals Just Placebos?

The way science is evolving, is quite interesting to have a look at. Many things, which we were told were useless, are again being proven to be correct. I am afraid to say, religious rituals are probably one of them. Before we actually dig into this stuff, we should first take out a minute to […]

The Hope – with Bernie

Recently following the Presidential campaign in US has been both devastating and alluring. We in India are used to political campaigns which mostly run on emotions (mostly false), attachments and associations (mostly untrue) and a whole gamut of drama in the name of equality, freedom and secularism.

Freedom and Sensitivity: Two Values That Make Our Existence Meaningful

After many days, I am successful at taking out some time to write. We need a whole lot of things to live our lives. We need followers, critics, praise, freedom, trust and many more things to live our life. What will happen if someone starts taking them out from your life one by one? I […]

What Makes Our Dream of Equality unfeasible?

It seems, everyone wants equality. Many voices are being raised against inequalities of different kinds- financial, gender based, racial and what not. If one carefully observes social media, the number of voices who advocate or care for equality is going up. These voices are becoming louder and bolder. Many times, one can see a lot […]

What Will India Look Like in 2061?

I came across an interesting book which compiles the views and thoughts of around 20 leaders from different fields about what India will look like in 2061. The people who have shared their thoughts are no ordinary people, but stalwarts from sectors as varied as education, retail, IT, communication, pharma etc. This book proved to […]

What should we expect from the Modi Government?

While writing this new article, I knew that it is going to be hit. Why is it so? Because we Indians are too good at expecting things from others. If you still believe that a government can save you without you being the part of the change, nothing is going to change.   You might […]

Osho: Ahead of all the crackpots

Thanks to Mr. Rajinder Puri, I came to know one of the most interesting quotes I have ever read. The first person whose face flashed in front of my eyes when I read this quote for the first time was Osho. He is beyond that quote. The quote reads like this-  ‘People who can see […]
