Unknown Knowledge


It's better to know that we don't know rather than not to know that we don't know.

What We Read


There is a column for spirituality and a column for horoscope, but none for rationality, not one for skepticism.

Freedom of Speech


Democracy grants freedom of speech but only till the words start criticizing the authority.

Free From Democracy


Strange is the fact that democratic governments do not entertain the right of its people to free themselves from the democracy.

Pride of Inheritance


Living with pride of inheritance is akin to driving with alcohol in blood. Both are fatal, to self and to others.

Explanation: Inheritance refers to values we inherit by our birth, by allegiance to a community and not earn. Nationality, religion, castism are such. If we take pride in these, if we get high on these, we risk not just self but others as well.

The Running Nose


Anala made a mistake of informing me and Shivi that she is having a runny nose. We tried to interpret what it meant and here is the discussion to arrive at a conclusion.

Anala: You've been invited to this chat room!
Shivi has joined

Anala: ahem !
Ravi: yeh kya hai.. group sex!!!! i mean group chat.
Anala: yeh group chat hai..taaki tum dono mere peet peeche kuch secret na share kare. argh
Shivi: abe Anala needs help with her nose

The Logic of God


Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

- Epicurus, Greek Philosopher (341 BCE - 270 BCE)

Musing: Greeks were getting smarter, Christianity made them dumb.
