What a world !!!

The human race in its present form has been residing on earth for probably more than twenty thousand years now. No one in the history, till two thousand years back has the notion of my land or your land. Now we hear about migrants, immigrants, legal and illegals. We have wired ourselves so much with so many discriminatory concepts that it's hard to find the real human inside. We define ourselves by our possessions. We get comfort in the physical manifestations around us. We don't meet with humans nowadays. We meet with positions and titles. We meet to serve our needs and wants.

The many worlds

Take a stroll on the sidewalks of Silicon Valley. Overhear the conversation. People are talking about driverless vehicles, spaceships, and the next billion dollar idea. You might happen to see through the corner of your eyes a driverless car passing by. Life is fast. There are billion-dollar dreams in the eyes and to become one of the blue blood. The buzzwords like robots, machine learning, artificial intelligence paint the air. They are on a mission to replace human in every way in the world, not even realizing that they are also human. And they will have kids which will be humans and not robots.

My Lord! How do you judge?

India has seen some high profile decisions from the Supreme court. Notable of them are the following
  • Section 377 - Decriminalisation of consensual sex between homosexuals (Score: 5-0)
  • Section 497 - Adultery is not a criminal offense. (Score: 5-0)
  • Sabarimala verdict - Allowing woman in Sabarimala temple (Score: 4-1)
  • Aadhar verdict - Aadhar is valid and government can use it for identification (Score: 4-1)
These are some of the high profile cases that got judgments recently. Apart from the first two cases which got the judgment unanimously, the last two cases did not have the same clean sweep. It's not important that what you or I think about it. A judgment from SC is binding and has to be followed independently of our inclinations.

Is your Saint genuinely a Saint?

The history is full of Saints. The present is full of Saints. People who claim to have exceptional power and perceived to be near to god. None of us know but they claim and we believe. Many of them live in opulence, travel in luxury cars and still, we claim how simple is their life. Do you also follow one of the saints, who sort of cajoles you to serve them as your master? The serving usually in the form of donations in cash or kind. Do you?

Capitalism will die..Soon

Capitalism like all "ism" came with a promise and did serve the society well. It unleashed the human potential in numerous ways and led to many discoveries and innovations. The biggest of them being the large commercial behemoths which in turn became the vehicle of not only discoveries and innovations but making many things affordable and reachable to a large section of society. It also led to many innovations in medical space and which in turn has reflected in a much longer lifespan for humans.

जिंदगी एक फ़साना

हाड़ मांस का शरीर तो बना देते हैं
रूह डालना मुश्किल होता है
बदन पे चिपका देते हैं पैराहन
इंसान बनाना मुश्किल होता है

वो अटल

वो अटल था वो  रहेगा अटल
भीनी मुस्कान चरम मनोबल 
काल के कपाल पर वो लिखता था 
लिखता था और मिटाता था
