After you are gone


We assume ownership of our seat on this world, society and within organisations as if it was meant for us. As if it will cease to exist when you are absent. We tie the seat with our existence. We think we created it and will destroy it. We feel it has no meaning or valueContinue reading “After you are gone”

2064 – My Encounter with Future


“Saagar!! Sagar!! Saaagar!! Sagar!!”, huge sound waves coming from the partially opened window. Sagar was unaffected by this affectionate roar of his fan following, as it is since past 20 years he has been hearing.

Although there were mats but I feel very uncomfortable sitting on ground due to lack of practice. Secondly, it badly affects the aristocracy that I maintained throughout my life. Either liveContinue reading “Back To Future … IX (Food)”
