23rd March

It's a pity that no news channel in India is featuring the martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru today.
They were one of the greatest martyrs of all times for India.

If you know about Polygons, you would understand the importance of Triangles. BTW, triangular shapes have real importance in our lives too.

Three Qs

Elections are round the corner in the country. I have three questions in mind.

Ever wondered, how you are being controlled by the society, by the leaders and more so, by the business bigwigs?

Since the onset of money in our civilization, money became the ruling power indirectly or directly? Agree?

Shakespeare said, "The world is a stage...". Shouldn't it be, the world is a stage, majority of the humans are puppets in the hands of few powerful and ruthless beings?

Pirates of Silicon Valley

I just happened to see this movie - "Pirates of Silicon Valley".

These are the opening words --
"I don't want you to think of this as just a film, some process of converting electrons and magnetic impulses into shapes and figures and sounds. No. Listen to me. We're here to make a dent in the universe. Otherwise, why even be here? We're creating a completely new consciousness, like an artist or a poet. That's how you have to think of this. We're rewriting the history of human thought with what we're doing."
