Being Hindu

Tweet I am a Hindu. I was born to Hindu parents and became one by default. Is my religion a part of my identity? Perhaps. Do I care much about it? Perhaps not. Do I believe in god? Certainly. Human life is too much of a miracle to not believe in god. For all...

For a Nobel Cause

Tweet There have been many immortal gestures of love and peace in human history. Shahjahan building Tajmahal for his wife.

Small States. Big Debate.

Tweet After the recent announcement of creation of the Telangana state, my first reaction was a sense of disappointment. ‘This is just a political stunt.’ ‘These people will break up the coutry for their petty gains.’ ‘Are we going back to the hundreds of princely states Sardar Patel and co. helped consolidate?’ And i...
