Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Warm and Dry Dec 13, 2007

only moments ago
the sun was blinding
dark clouds now
cast sinister feel
as lightening zig zags
and claps of thunder
rattles window panes
rain pelts angrily
demanding attention
while transfixed eyes
catch this mighty display
safe inside tiny cubicle
I watch snarling traffic
glad I'm warm and dry

How Is My Country Treating Me Dec 13, 2007

An interesting question no doubt ... that I am frequently asked in the wake of recent happenings ....

My country at the moment is treating me and how should I say this - the way its always treated me ... indifferently like my being here or not makes no difference to them - AFTERALL I am Indian. Someone the government extols that it TOLERATES!

How my country will be treating me in the future, now THAT leaves a stabbing pain my heart ... because at the moment, I see no future for my daughters here, and yet this is home, where do I go with them in tow.

HINDRAF may have its heart in the right place, but I feel (and this a personal opinion) they have marginalised other Indians i.e. non-Hindus and non-Tamils - but the backlash that is anticipated is to all Indians of all descents ... so we wait in anxiety for what the future holds.

Should I Be Offended? Dec 13, 2007

How Many Christians Understand Jesus Teachings?

And this is my humble view of the matter:

Wasn't offended at all. In fact what offends me is the Christian who thinks it impossible for Christ to yet again show such humility and humbleness sorely missing in the 'Prosperity Christianity' the world and Christians have come to accept as 'the truth'

If only people loved God more than the display of their stained glass faith.

We've been doctrined by man not God. Man has interpreted to his own comfort and for his own power over other men. Look at the number of denominations amongst Christians all splintered and fractured and like lost sheep bleating incoherently! All roads lead back to God.

As much as we would like to think declaring ourselves Christian makes us better than anyone else, I think then you are no better than one who does not acknowledge God in any form, be it a Muslim Allah, a Christian God, a Jewish Yahweh, or the teachings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'ism

God is one, MAN and man alone has created so many many variables and then we insult the image and purity and love of God by forcing others to kowtow and adhere to our human interpretations ...

If anyone is offended by this piece of art, then (s)he has not grasped the teachings of our Jewish Christ the founder of the Christian faith. Drop your pretenses and live by the word of God and the teachings and humble works of Christ and the Holy Spirit will burn strong in you who is created in the image of God.
