Thought Leadership

It is indeed tragic that most Indians across generations are groomed from their formative years to subscribe to a flawed interpretation of the Karma theory and the caste system built on a fatalistic premise, which assumes without second thought that whatever happens (or does not happen) is the outcome of our good or bad karma

Watching the scenic Lake Michigan

Watching the scenic Lake Michigan in the wee hours of the morning, a disturbing thought hit me like a blizzard: Is humankind the worst species in the world?

Animals pounce on their prey as part of the ecosystem, and they don't kill unless they are hungry or hurt; we humans on the other hand indulge in brutal murders and mass killings and other heinous crimes based on ridiculous pretexts and contexts. History has lost count of the number of rapes, death trials, and other forms of brutalites committed over the years.

Many a vibrant civilzation have lost their core identities, thanks to umpteen tyranncial invasions by powerful nations with predatory instincts to bulid and extend their empires by making vulnerable natives of foriegn lands loyal-than-the-king slaves.

Even today, thousands of innocent lives are lost in riots and uprisings over petty and insular matters of religion, race, and language. Will this mindless mayhem ever end? What is the future of humankind?

The right answers will come provided we raise the right questions...
