Life Cycle : Sequence of events post an Achievement

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes 0 seconds

I believe that every moment in our life has a reason to exist . Each moment needs to be recognised , acknowledged , respectfully received , cherished -while in it & when the momentary life of the moment is passed , it must be let go . The essence of a moment is to add Momentum , when it does that , its role is to move on . Hence while we should live each moment fully , we should leave it when it is over - not get stuck in it , simply because there is another moment knocking at our door . The...

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes 57 seconds

Success of Democracy is in knowing where it ends  I do not know whether people who swear by Democracy , understand what it means .

You accepting my freedom is incumbent on you ( you don’t have a choice ) . If you don’t , you are intolerant . However the reverse is not true...

How Adequate is Adequate

Adequacy / inadequacy are not physical boundaries but , states of mind , it depends on what you believe .

Good fashion for a person is what he / she can carry off comfortably & confidently . That’s why if someone is awkward wearing the trendiest of clothing , it’...
