Share Words And Their Meanings
2019-8-22 10:48
Long ago when I lived in the USA, I noticed that most words used there politically and in media were just labels. These labels often meant nothing close to the original meaning of the words they were derived from, sometimes they really meant the opposite - they were just meant to artificially create a feeling of being goodness/political correctness through association.. A 'liberal' does not necessarily have a mostly liberal outlook towards others, a 'democrat' does not follow de ...

Share All The Holiness, Beauty and Evil
2019-3-27 13:58
No place, no monument, no symbol or word is holy, beautiful, ugly or evil in itself. True Holiness and beauty, exists only within us - in the souls and thoughts of living creatures. Ugliness and evil exists mostly within humans. Copyright © KIyer 2019 All rights reserved

Share The Most Basic Motivation For Wealth Creation
2019-2-4 09:57
Not all who are wealthy are at fault somehow. Many earn it honestly or inherit it legally, not at anyone else's expense. Not all who are poor and struggling are so due to someone else's fault. They truly have not earned wealth or sympathy in society. There are corrupt and honest rich, just like honest and corrupt poor. They each need to be treated differently, according to their nature, not their level of wealth. A single individual cannot use more than a certain amou ...

Share O, How The Times Have Changed!
2018-10-12 10:20
For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train. For a long tim ...

Share No Need To Die And Go To Heaven
2018-8-8 19:28
I have often heard that someone ‘died and went to Heaven’. It came as a surprise revelation to me when I realized that, I have stayed alive and come to Heaven. I look around and find it very familiar. It looks just like the area around where I live. I was walking outside, this evening after dark. It had rained earlier in the day and the skies had cleared up. I could feel a cool and yet exhilarating pleasant dampness as I looked up and saw the stars bright ...

Share An Atheist's 'Hinduism As I Understand It'
2018-5-10 12:54
I have long been known as an atheist from the days of my youth. I used to rebel against blindly following what I could not understand or what no one could explain clearly. I have not changed much, but I have gathered my own understanding of the culture I was born into and the philosophies it represents. Here is my take on Hinduism as I understand it now. 1) Laws of Nature are the true Gods and Deities. 2) Only that which is eternally true is the One Constant God. The rest are ...

Share A Second Chance At Maths
2018-5-3 11:10
I am planning to start a program where all grown-up and middle-aged folk got together, have a meal and socialize around a good fun math lesson - re-learning in fun way, without pressure all the Math in high-school that they may not remember fondly. They could try and understand Math at their own pace, no pressure of exams, of being wrong in front of their peers etc. One simple topic in each session, they could ask questions and learn without young fragile egos in play. I want to call it ...

Share An Ode to 'Zamaana' (The World Out There)
2018-5-2 06:51
'Zamaana (the world)' is much reviled in our Indian poetry and shayari. I have a contrarian view in this piece. I have noted that 'Zamaana' itna bura to nahin, jitna banaya jaatha hai. Please note that this is not a complaint against the 'Apne (our own)' as opposed to 'Zamaana'. Personally, mere 'apne' have been wonderful too. I am just writing this piece from the third party view of what I have observed. Summary in English: "The world is not as bad as we make it out in poetry. ...

Share My God! No Need For Any Miracles
2018-4-23 07:23
I do not wish to use the concept of God to explain away what I cannot otherwise understand by my knowledge or reason. I would rather admit to my ignorance and the limits of what I know and can understand and leave it at that while trying to learn more. God for me does not have to begin where my understanding ends or as a catch-all for all the ignorance of humanity. Any concept of God that I can subscribe to does not need to have miraculous po wers (even if many inspire awe and wonder), it ...

    Welcome you being back on the forum! Your topic is interesting! We bloggers should post more writings with unique fresh ideas to reader-friends.
    In China people waste too much money on friends who have to organize a banque at restaurant for kinds of reasons. (Such as kid‘s birth,  entering university or wedding, death of parent, and so on.)  I think colleagues should care and help each other with real heart that pure relationship can not be measured with banknotes!
