  • Reinventing our biological framework
    on Oct 19, 2013 in About Me Pop Up Random Thoughts
    Random questions keep popping in my head from time to time. Today while watching a film "Waking Life" I began contemplating on this thought-If as we all know and is highlighted in the movie- our cells regenerate every 7 years- so effectively we are c...
  • EntitlementI am sitting down to type this as this thought descended on me as I was busy washing up after lunch. Thoughts tend to do that. They descend out of nowhere and sometimes they hang around with you and sometimes they disappear before you can catch them.

    Last week my mind and body was gripped with jealousy. Unexplained, debilitating, green, bright green, fluorescent green pure jealousy. It took over my entire personality and I suffered for three days in its grip. I cut contact with friends and more o...

    Its been quite an interesting journey since I first began writing my blogs. A lot has happened on the personal front and also a lot has happened hopefully on the spiritual growth side of things. I say hopefully because I can just hope that a lot has...

    Sanatana Dharma (aka Hinduism) is interesting and different. It is the only religion in the world which does not have one God-One way-One Book. In fact in India one could safely say that there are as many ways to love God as there are people. Everyon...
