There is a method in the working of Universe which may not be apparent now. Justice will be served eventually. Our actions give us solace or boomerang on us for our willful deeds. None should shortchange others and thereby divide society for personal gains.
We manage to complete the race of life despite the strife and challenges. In a way that makes it all worth the while. However, we have to move another notch to make our lives more meaningful and wholesome. Looking inward in contemplation for wisdom than just reacting to sounds and sig...
Democracy and Freedom go hand in hand. Sadly, they have proven to be elusive to vast majority when few call the tune whoever is in power. The lofty ideal of government of the people,by the people and for the people remains a mirage for most. Time for the next positive step.

We have no idea why we are here, neither do we know where we come from, if at all. We cannot choose our parents. What matters is the time between birth and death and the endless choices to make our lives fulfilled. No one needs to be a loser unless we choose to!
A minority is able to manipulate democracy and freedom to their advantage. The slip between the cup and the lip plays out ad nauseam to the chagrin of the majority.
Though Mayan calendar has ended with relief, we have reached crossroad in our history. Time to take a deep breath. Business as usual is no more a viable option as further divisions and hatred will doom us in an increasingly inter-connected world. Repeating our follies will lead us bey...

We have myriad choices in life but we should never forget to invest in the basics of love, positive attitude, care and share to get enduring peace and meaning in our lives. Our time to give is limited; let us make the best use of it.
