    A Parent’s Choice… Most of my friends have asked me this question one time or the other: “Why don’t boys seem to have a purpose in life nowadays?”. Now, I for one believe myself to be the epitome of all the problems (and a considerable number more), that boys have to counter before they are […]

  • Crimes Against Women
    Posted in: Articles

    Crimes against women have increased at a tremendous pace which is quite embarrassing for our society. Molestations, rapes, murders, dowry cases, etc. are some of the common ones that can be enlisted.

    “What Must I Do ? The problem with being too “Westernized” or “Modern” in a largely traditional society is that, while you are free to do stuff your own way and feel liberated beyond the restrictions of conventional values, you are also subjected to many tough and piercing lessons in life.

    Posted in: Articles, Featured

      The world is a pool of very selfish people.

    Posted in: Articles, Featured

    ” If Buddhism becomes tainted, so too will the nation’s faith in itself. ” Watching a gripping documentary on #AlJazeera about Buddhism in Thailand and how monks are losing credence due to a rise in criminal activities (and other “forbidden acts”) amongst them.

  • Things Fall Apart
    Posted in: Articles, Featured

    Love the ideas; they guide you in the chaos. Love the feel of being in existence. Love the aura around you. You can love every other thing but don’t love the “things” as they fall apart.
