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 7.5 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.

There's a weird correlation between happiness and success that everybody often wonders about. Some say they'll be happy if they are successful; other say they are sucessful if they happy. One of the first cummodities in everyone's wishlist, happiness and success are topmost indirect ambition of every human breathing on this planet. But whatever...

We think we are the masters of the universe, bursting with superior intelligence, unshakeably sovereign over 8.7 million species on our planet that should vouch we are masters. However, we fit only in a Goldilock environment with such dangerously limited choices that it nearly feels like we're prisoners! Look at this:

Human beauty is evil. It pervades every sphere of human life ruining honest people, innocent children/ teens, idyllic families, siblings and friends, turning them into devils. The joys it brings far outweigh the corruptions and sorrows it brings. I am not being gender specific here, but what the heck if I am?

Imagine you have a rubber band in your hand. You start pulling it harder and harder until it stretches to snapping point. Depending on the strength of the band, it may or may not snap but the extreme tension cannot be denied. That is our brain under stress. Turns out, we're under constant stress of some kind or the...

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.

We have basically overturned our ancestor's nearly every single issue of honour, prestige, importance and social value, making them wince and turn in their graves. It's a good example of 'Old is not always gold.' and 'Our fathers are not always as wise as they like us to believe.'

These questions are't exactly unanswered but existing varied answers have failed to satisfy us which is why we're still in the quest since time immemorial. The tragedy is nothing helps.

You take you dog for a walk and throw the stick a bit too high, expecting him to catch it. He does. Next time you throw it even higher, challenging his capacity. He catches every time pushing his strength and ability. Would you say you are stressing your dog? No. Is the dog stressing himself? No.

Last year, India suffered a nightmarish episode of Cornoa Crisis. Too many people got infected too suddenly, and the already weakened infrastructure crumbled further under pressures of sudden high figures of the sick. Thousands died because they couldn't get oxygen. This incident is now going down in History as 'The Oxygen Crisis'.

Well, there are more than four. These questions have plagued every single human that has ever lived on earth. These questions are't exactly unanswered but existing varied answers have failed to satisfy us which is why we're still in the quest since time immemorial. The tragedy is nothing helps.

First off: History is not the only thing to repeat itself. So do numbers, alphabets, sounds, signals, waves, music notes, cells, atoms, Math, Geography, Nature, body-functions, seasons, space, galaxies! Everything, if you look closely enough, is just a systematic repetition of itself over and over again and again. Even water cycle, rock cycle, life...

The more we learn, the more we learn that the more we need to learn. (Interesting word play and also true)The more we think we are wise, the more the possibility that we might be a fool.The more we think we're a fool, the more the possibility that we might actually be wise. (Dunning Kr├╝ger effect)If we're rich and humble...
