Thinking, reading, writing, wondering...!

I love writing on psychology, intelligence, society, History, spirituality, and world in general. Initially I was an active blogger hidden under various pseudonyms writing under various categories. Ever since some of my writings have been translated in several other languages and received over 9 million views within one year with one post currently grossing 3.5 million views alone, another trending at 1.1 million, and several others at several hundred thousands, today (04.01.2022) I finally decided to get serious about blogging under my own name.

Before you read further, let me make this clear: I am not a religious person. I don't know and don't care if Jesus was a real person or not. James Bond also is just fictional, so is Jack Sparrow or Sherlock Holmes or Lara Croft or Katniss Everdeen. If we can admire them and learn so much from them, then...

Arthur Conan Doyle murdered Sherlock, but he refused to die. He was revived again and now 100+ years later he still stubbornly declines to leave our hearts. Why is Sherlock so unforgettable and why is he so unique? Because he actually accidentally fulfils all the required criteria for a mad genius, and is in fact a classic mad genius. Here is how:...

Life of a king, queen and royals has always appealed to ordinary people. Some think it is a life of dreams! Rolling around in riches and splendour, having thousand servants to wait upon, countless outfits and a crown to wear and everyone bowing their heads before them is the stuff of fairy tales. The reality is completely different....

Everyone worries about money. What about the rich? Turns out they also worry about money albeit with a different twist.

Prodigiousness is a high fantasy for most parents. Given the choice, every parent would like to have a prodigious child, but prodigy children are not easy to identify, and much less to understand. Indeed some often get easily misunderstood by their world they live in.
