In a quest to seek knowledge, I come across a variety of books from multiple different genres. In pursuit of the same quest, I know I should be pragmatic, which means I need to keep my mind open for all schools of thought. Recently, I started studying the Charavak Philosophy, ancient school of Indian materialism. The Charvaka epistemology states that whenever one infers a truth … Continue reading Charavak, Millennials’ way of life
I was having a chat with one of my colleges yesterday. The topic of the discussion was -how it is evil to strive for power. I was the champion of power. I don’t believe power itself is evil. Let me explain myself. Power is nothing but the will to be the best. To be so good, that people would follow your advice/ teaching without question. This … Continue reading Does Power beget evil ?

I have been living in Doha for a better part of a month now. One thing I noticed is, there are a lot of Indians here. Especially people from Kerala.

First thing I noticed when i entered Doha, was … Continue reading Life…and tips
This is another article that I wrote for a Mensa meet. Apparently, I am depressed. What is depression? Excessive sadness, perhaps? So let’s remove sadness from life. By-product : no happiness. As it happens, you can’t feel true happiness unless you know what the absence of happiness means and the absence of happiness is sadness. Like darkness is just an absence of light, or chaos … Continue reading Depression
A schoolmate commented on an old photograph on my facebook page. The photo was of my school days, taken at the time we completed our high school. The entire batch along with the teachers, captured into an immortal moment. Most of the faces were familiar, some familiar but difficult to recognise . But some faces seem foreign. This got me thinking. Why do I not … Continue reading When do we loose a friend ?

So during one such … Continue reading We Dont need no, education
I have a bad habit of taking a walk late in the evening , usually with a close friend of mine. Yesterday, was one such time. We were walking in the the shadows accompanied by our usual tomfoolery , when I noticed a dog by the side of the road. The dog was skinny, as if it was no fed for days now and twitching … Continue reading A Dog’s Life ?
This incident was a while back. Back, when the nation was still ruled by the Gandhi family, Sachin was still playing cricket, not many people knew who Mr. Arvind Kejriwal was and when I still had some cash in my pocket. As I mentioned, I had cash in my pocket. No I was not planing on visiting any temple, nor a lady of negotiable affection. … Continue reading Artist on the street.
