Counterintuitive Ideas on Career-Choice


Do not make that you are most passionate about, your source of livelihood That is what I have told many people who I interact with online. A few disclaimers are in order, though. I have not yet practically begun my career, so great portion of my analysis is purely conjectural. Also, the above idea if […]

Corrosion


I was born here over 20 years ago. Unlike you, I don’t mind if you step on my toes, for that’s what I’ve inferred the purpose of my life on a railway platform to be. Despite having my feet literally firmly grounded, I’ve seen more humans, their humanity & its complements – indifference, deceit & […]

How Morality is Indispensable to a Social Life


This post had started as a response to one of the comments by Darshan, whose ideas and blog-posts (click) I really enjoy and also recommend to other readers who appreciate critical thinking. The reasons I am publishing this response as a separate blog post are: because the response is too long; I would not like […]

Vacillation


“His large eyes are just like mine. You can’t doubt he’s got all his cuteness genes from me!

Especially, TUIB’s low ‘score’! 😉 Whenever I look at my blog, I feel satisfied by at least one thing–comments have largely been […]

iBubble. The Perfect Sphere. The Perfect Hollow.

Comparisons are imminent. If I understand myself, still I might not understand someone else correctly, for some contamination of data […]

My flirtation with Wikipedia

Of course back then, I had been able to develop it only […]

Tales of Bruno and Galileo: The art of saying semi-sorry after thinking for REALLY, REALLY LONG! Like, 359 years!


Here is an article dealing with related issues of psychology, some history, arguments for existence of god(s), and their refutation 🙂 Why Atheism? (click) It is easy to understand, devoid of rigorous philosophical jargon, but very lengthy. One horrifying thing was the manner in which Giordano Bruno was executed in 1600 (click) for holding ideas […]
