Udaan

Udaan

    Oonchai ka dar thha usey, Aur udne ki chah bhi! Na pankh the koi, na udaan bhar ki hawa thi, Par sunti kahan thi, wo rukti kahan thi! Jaisi sochi bhi na ho kisine Duniya aise uska jahan thha! Na dabti apni kshamtaon ke taley, Na thamti do pal saans bhar ke liye. Nikal padi apne khwabo ke pichhe Chamakna tha usey, jalne ki parvah kahan thi? Jo chhupa tha hunar usme kahin,

Parents -The Real Gods

Parents -The Real Gods

  A 20-year-old a boy went up to a sage of high repute and said to him, “I’m tired of this mortal world, I want freedom from the circle of life. Please help me attain enlightenment and I promise I will give up all worldly distractions and take haven in the Lord’s feet for He’s the only one I seek.” expecting a pleasant and proud smile from the sage, the lad bowed his head and

Can Corruption and Bribery be Eradicated from India?

Can Corruption and Bribery be Eradicated from India?

Corruption is a serious malice I had read in the Civics subject text-book in class five, and I continue to believe so. So do we all. We’ve always spoken against corruption, cursed the authorities and the babus practicing it religiously and voted blindly for ministers promising to tackle this malice. Haven’t we? (Now you can feel a ‘But’ coming here don’t you!) But (here it is!) do we really hate the C word and bribery

The Philosophy of science

The Philosophy of science

If you’ve ever felt that the reason for your existence is much more than just the chemistry and biology governing natural organisms, you have at some point pondered about the purpose of life (most probably in the shower). And this must have gotten you a little excited and in that tiny moment, epiphany strikes and you have got yourself the ultimate life goal. It fills one with energy and one starts to question everything one

The Empty and meaningless Life

The Empty and meaningless Life

Do you ever wonder how life got so complicated? Do you ever wish for simplicity in life, just like it was when we were kids? By the way kids today have a pretty complicated life themselves so, just think it over, but you get the point, right? I sometimes think about my purpose in life; how the universe is perhaps trying to teach me, train me for a better life ahead. Do you think about

The Hallucinating Human

The Hallucinating Human

The Hallucinating Human   So, I was watching Bajirao Mastani last weekend and just when I was about to doze off, as the climax approached, the last scene of the movie really connected with me. Now, before some of you start to defend the movie, let me just clear the air by saying that I am not going to write a review of the movie. This article is not about that. I respect your opinions

The Supreme Religion

There has been growing religious intolerance in India which is a matter of high concern. It’s more of an issue about self-expression but I’ll stick to the religious front for now. So, as you can tell by the title of the post, I am going to be talking about my religion and I know that it is the most righteous and supreme religion there is. Let the judging begin! First, let’s understand religion. A religion is an

Humanity First

These are times when India is facing a bit more number of threats to its sovereignty than we’re probably used to. At least as far as my knowledge goes, I haven’t seen the media report Chinese and Pakistani incursions or any other threats from these countries at the same time. Also, the internal security challenges aren’t on the decline either. It’s as though we’re disintegrating, we’re recognizing our differences but these external threats are keeping us somehow weakly glued. I recently read in an article the divide between Hindus and Muslims, North Indians and South Indians and between other social groups is increasing. The ‘Unity in Diversity’ has been remained to a bookish phrase. Is this a problem? I say yes. Is there a solution? Yes, but trying to forget our differences and suddenly unite won’t help. It will never even happen. If the branches start to dry up, perhaps the roots need to be diagnosed.

A Quest For Happiness

I was no different from you, when I was where you are today – in a quest for happiness. “Do people still send these?” quipped Ishita as we explored my newly received greeting card. “Apparently they do.” I answered. The last time I had seen one of these was over a half decade back when all the fourth class students had to send a Parents Day greeting card to their parents back home. The queue
