Residua


The first time I had written this story, it was a cathartic tale. To help me resolve a few issues with myself. I had not written it keeping in mind a specific audience.

Direct Democracy in India: a Possibility?


While in one of my recent posts (click), I had questioned the validity of this subconscious idea that “consensus by majority is the best way to reach decisions for a huge heterogeneous community, like the Indian population”, no other method that could replace populist decision-making seems plausible.

Futuristic!


A few months back I was watching a documentary based on the book The Elegant Universe, and in one of the sections, the concept of a wormhole, which would basically enable one to move from one point in space time to another through connecting tunnels was being discussed. The simplest consequence of presence of such […]
