In my city

What’s your favourite part of the city you live in? Peace among the crowd? A haven of greenery where the wet soil exuberates you? Or is it a quiet point away from the city where you go to view the stars?

As much as you hate the crowd in your city, almost each one of you has found a secret spot that has the power to calm you. It is a place that is the epitome of serene, a secret locked away and treasured for no one can know about its magical abilities.

It is a place where all shackles are broken, all disguises are shattered.

It connects to your soul in a way that maybe nothing else will. It guides you, gives you the means to search for your ultimate truth, your goal.

Love your city
Enjoy each part of it
The frenzied crowd
Peace at night
The rat race
That’s where you live
That’s where you belong
That’s who you are
That’s what makes you YOU
And that’s what will never let you back down.

History of the World

The start of the human race was initiated from Africa. The greatest civilisations to ever have existed were made centuries ago in the following regions:

1. Indus Valley civilisation ( of Bronze Age) – Harappa, Mohenjo-radro, Dholavira, Ganeriwala , Rakhigarhi.

2. Egypt civilisation – most ancient pyramids were built in Saqqara. However, largest pyramid built was Khufu at Giza

3. Mesopotamia – Ziggurat in Iraq along the rivers of Tigris-Euphrates

4. Damascus – Damascus, Syria. Damascus is widely believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, with evidence of habitation dating back to at least 11,000 years ago.

Where do these countries stand today in relation to power, civilisation rate, standard of living, technology?

There has been nil progress as compared to the origins of these civilisations. These civilisations were more advanced as compared to the world around them. They could sense the future and achieve it but they were unable to sustain themselves against the mankind’s follies.

What we guage is that a super power today will not be there forever and there will be a new entrant w.r.t. power/ technology. All this is built today by extracting resources from existing flourishing nations.

We can only wait and watch what does the human race do next or where will the world lead us in the coming years. The only predictable thing about humanity is its unpredictability.

The Power of Me

I am who I am. I will not justify myself to anyone. I don’t need to love myself through the skewed version of society. Irrespective of whether I’m religious or an atheist, whether I enjoy alcohol or am a teetotaler. Whether I’m a vegetarian or not. Whether I smoke, whether I believe in social service. Irrespective of any of my beliefs.

Why are there socialistic pre-requisites to survive in this world? Why is each one judged based on their choices? Why welcome some and shun some based on their right to live life the way they want?

No one has a right to judge me for anything I do, did, didn’t do or don’t plan to do.

I live irrespective of what people believe I should be doing. I do not owe them a justification for my faith.

I believe that the Almighty sees all. I believe in karma. I believe in giving more than expecting. I believe in leaning away from the materialistic world we are brought up in. I believe in a fairy tale. I believe that the best is yet to come.

And it’s okay if you don’t believe these things. Because we believe in humanity.

Naked

Just to clarify this write up does not relate to the physical meaning of the word naked but rather the state of mind.

‘Naked’ is a state of mind, a thought, self – awareness

It is a form of clarity that can unleash our innermost demons. This type of creativity is baring your soul on canvas, via a camera, write ups or music. Strip down all the walls and let the world in.

Unless and until we try we will never be able to accept the good with the bad within us, take the acceptance with the denial and the compliments with the suggestions. We must gauge how the world reacts to us in order to realize to what extent we need to improve. Being a perfectionist in this manner would take us to the level that we want to reach.
