Planning for the good life in comment section

So, it so happens on one day that I develop an itch to know more about why the government bans Haj subsidy. And, what other kinds of pilgrimages can be banned. You see – although I am quite distant to Godly matters, I tend to develop all kinds of interests. This quest of mine led me to Google News, and …

Oppression and Conflict

I chanced upon an older Israeli – Palestinian conflict documentary focused on one of the incidents in 2014. It was more than interesting for me to watch the different side of the conflict and how humans see and react to the situation. (btw Vice is not the absolute neutral observer, but you must watch their splendid reporting and compare notes …

I will amuse you with a sob story..

When my secret friend** James Altucher writes (hell, why not?), the emotional connect to the audience (or anchor as he puts it) will be on how he was a failure, and how he put those days behind him. I know he has much more valuable that he has to say, and he does indeed. But I get fixated by the background …

Will you wait to become commoditized or automated?

The whole physical realm of humanity goes through iterative cycles. We improve, we make mistakes, we learn and we go forward. The improvement is proven and makes absolute sense when viewing our limited existence as a collective whole. I have not gone back to hunting gathering days, and neither have my close friends and family. I do not have physical existential challenges …

Stop thinking about money by reading this book

i love money book review

My ‘Kindle Unlimited‘ subscription gives me access to some really good books, and then some excellent books. Since I don’t really have to pay money for the individual books, I get an opportunity to cause indigestion by selecting too many books to read and attempting to understand the world better.

Being a freak can be a good thing

think like a freak book

Who knew that ‘freak’ – a common term with negative connotations, can turn out to be more than what it seems on face value. At least that’s what the authors of Freakonomics and Super-freakonomics will have you believe. What else would you expect from them when ‘brand freak’ is at stake here. Or, could it be really true? Is being a …

As you may have guessed by now – it is safe to assume that I have typed a lot during this time. All this typing would have consumed time – ** a …

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish – A good, quick read

stay hungry stay foolish book review

I will be honest here. I don’t read a lot nowadays – Indian authors included. Not that I am free of that habit, it is just a matter of being determined to find enough time in my 14 hours a day spent outside of home. But, fortunately, I did not consider the time aspect when I subscribed to Kindle Unlimited. …
