As I write this article today, the Christians celebrate Palm Sunday, the Muslims observe the night of Forgiveness or Shab-e-baraat, the Jews begin the Feast of the Passover and the Hindus are celebrating the victory of good over evil as they ignite the Holika Dahaan.

With Palm Sunday being observed today by millions of Christians across the world in commemoration of the commencement of the Holy Easter Week, what is meant to be a day of quiet reflection and prayer, is for India and Indian Christians in particular, the cause for uncalled strife, as with the election frenzy catching up…

The Greek Philosopher, Epictetus, one I revere for his high morals and ethical philosophy wrote, “True education, consists in recognizing that there is only one thing that belongs to an individual fully — his will, or purpose.” And it is this will and purpose that embodies the ethical framework of our very existence.

As India rejoices on it’s 72nd Republic Day in what is a sobering time in world history, the sudden emergence of the tricolor at every bend and on every building today must also reveal the farcical patriotism and nationalism that this nation has been subjected to in…

My late mother was very particular about her gifts, the ones she gave and the ones she received from me. As a result, with a mother who was far from easy to please, I started devising new ways to ensure I had the right gift for the right occasion.

Christmas is traditionally the Season of Gifting. As one who has spent a lot of time only selecting the best, I realize that over time a lot of people have rendered the tradition meaningless by an over-emphasis on money over emotions. The whole process has lost its essence and charm, limiting…


The Death of Indian Dignity

India is a country of Durga and Kali, of Indira and Kasturba, and then we are a country of Nirbhaya and Hathras. For that is who we have metamorphosed into; a country struggling to protect a woman's dignity.

The Indian society has been rated as one of the foremost conservative societies in the recent past. The growing intolerance especially when it comes to gender is almost in many ways ‘in our face.’ Yet people go about their day as nothing ever happened. It’s just another day, right?

And this is the heart of the problem…


India’s National Education Policy or the NEP introduced after three decades of redundancy has been welcomed by almost all quarters of society for the sheer novelty of it, to add to the fact that the country’s long neglected Education System has finally found a mention in our public discourse.

While the work-ability of this over — ambitious system is yet to be seen much like the rest of the current dispensation’s lofty thoughts, one must realize at the outset that the strength of any theory rests on it’s practicality and feasibility apart from meaningful attitudinal changes.

The Revised Structure with…


A couple of years ago I coined “Tharoorian” which still continues to be cherished as a badge of honour for many. However, I can honestly say that when I created the term it was more to signify a school of thought rather than some fan club; at least I can maintain, my end of the faction still works on furthering those values.

What too many do not know is that back then it was not the only term I’d created, I’d also made an acronym: SHASHI: Society Has A Socrates He’s Indian.

The acronym interestingly is something I wrote as…


We are living in interesting times where the intersection of Religion , Science, Politics and Society is unfolding to bring us Jesus Final Message. The Book of Revelation has been considered Mysterious since time immemorial.

Many Christian churches and christian denominations have been banned from Reading Revelation. At a time when we are battling a physical pandemic there is an even greater spiritual pandemic that has engulfed the world. At such times it becomes necessary to understand what the end times hold for us. Revelation means “unveiled.” …


How do we as humans know how does God separate His Chosen ones from the others. The answer lies within the pages of your Scriptures.

The summary of God’s Law is given in the Ten Commandments. But before we get into further details, Cami Oetman talks to us about a little sheep called Shrek. Shrek was lost for 6 years and while he was straying away from predators he put on 27 kilograms of weight and the wool just kept increasing. Finally when his master found him, he shaved off the excess wool and Shrek could move around normally. Shrek…
