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 […]
A box labeled – “MARBLE THE GREAT INSIDE” is examined. There was no sound on shaking it. It was opened – no marble could be seen. ……1. 1.1. That the box exists attests to the fact that Marble created it, so there must be Marble inside as declared by the label. 1.2. Ears are not […]
The Moral Contrariety of Christ and State (click) is a nice write-up, which attempts to reconcile rationality with religion-based, authoritative morality (irrespective of what the title seems to suggest).

Isn’t that offending, or at least a deeply existential query? Plus, I used to find it pointless. I’d ask, […]
*Chaddi is a word used interchangeably for “shorts” or “briefs/panties”. This is a post I’ve been planning to do since long, because it was after a long time some event had made me introspect and analyze things with utmost depth possible, and yet leave me, possibly, without answer.
