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. Neither had I tried to make the narration attractive in any way. Any such concerns would have adulterated the sentiments behind the […]

It had to happen. It happened yesterday. After three years!


Yesterday as I was climbing down stairs, engrossed in thoughts, suddenly I heard an enthusiastic “Namaskaar”(a salutation in Hindi). It was one of the sweepers, an older employee of the hostel.

I just like all THIS. So I post all this just like THAT!


Take a look at the two new widgets at the top of my left sidebar. Thanks! Not for looking, but your comments! Of course, I am not entirely convinced by the numbers shown.

One Moment of Clarity


Voices are muzzled Noise gets drizzled. Sight is scattered Darkness gets gathered. Sensations are profuse, But senses left confused; And, hallucinations encroach upon Realms of reality. Then it befalls- One moment of clarity. A new reality unfolds And guessing put on hold Stacked layer-upon-layer Is answer upon every problem; One-by-one all You can solve them. […]

A very good summary of theist v/s atheist arguments


Atheism: Encyclopedia entry is the recent blog post by Matt McCormick, Professor of Philosophy at California State University, Sacramento. I’m posting this link here only because this is the most succinct summary of theism v/s atheism arguments I’ve found up till now. Reading it takes more than an hour. But, for those who’re not professional […]
