Prayers that rocked my world

Where mind is without fear by Rabindranath Tagore Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where the knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls
Where words come from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee into...

Random facts I found interesting as a kid

Random facts I collected as a kid - when I thought I should and could know everything in the world. I don’t even try now. So this page would not be updated - ever.

What happens after my death?

This is a very personal message I sent to my loved ones. I am, now, sharing it with the world.

I just came back from final rites (Kirya) of my father. It’s been 13 days since he died.

Many asked what his final words were. There weren’t any. He didn’t get the chance. We will never know.

Everybody knows fickleness of life and inevitability of death. It’s just been drilled into me once more with this jolt.

I read somewhere that there is no right or wrong time to have...

Cycling has many benefits - most of which you already know:

It’s a great, harmless, and(mostly)injury-free workout. It saves fuel. Cycling is both noise pollution and air pollution free. Now for some other unusual, but awesome, things to think about:

You don’t get a ticket (no challan). So you don’t have to wait for red light to go green even when there is no traffic. You can go on the wrong side of the road (not recommended) without disturbing the traffic flow too much....

Gratitude - A way of living better

Humanity has come a long way in past few centuries. The quality of life that someone in lower middle classenjoys today is far better than what even wealthiest people experienced 100 years ago.

Whether it’s access to healthcare, education,transport or even just temperature control in the room, everything’s better.

But people are more dissatisfied than ever. Wants are becoming needs rapidly.

Why is that?Why do we crib about everything when everything is becoming...

Carrots and sticks

The quality of your life depends on the reasons behind the decisions you take. If they are internal reasons, for yourself, you flourish. If reasons are external, you lose control and feel frustrated.

Your happinesswill depend on the things you do when there’s no one standing behind you, when there’s no deadline, no sticks, and no short-term incentives.

If you just wait for the deadline to come near to start work, wait for your doctor to recommend you to exercise, wait for the...

The Greatest achievement of humanity

In last 50 years, humans have gradually achieved what no other individual or entity achieved in history. It’s not modern medicine. It’s not even internet.
What we have achieved is not knowing the limits of what we can accomplish as a collective race.

The greatest achievement of the human race is not knowing limits of what it can achieve. Tweet

Product ideas - Please invent this

Someone, please make this:

Computer that plugs directly into my brain Please make acomputer device which plugs directly into my brain. So instead of typing, I just think,and it does the typing for me.

There is no screen for the output. Typing is just happening in the device which is plugged directly into my brain. So I am getting the visual signal not from my eyes but directly into my brain.

Why would I want such a thing?

This will...

The Universe doesn't care about you

Many people including Shahrukh Khan quote"When you really want something, whole universe conspires to help you get it".

That’s just baloney. The universe doesn’t care about you. Tweet

So are all these people lying? Not really. It just appears as if the universe (or God) is helping.

But why does it seem that way?

It’s been true for me and many others including Shahrukh Khan - When you really want something, events coincidentally start turning in your favor in such...
