My Allah vs Your Allah

We all are born beautiful. But then we start thinking. Beauty ends where brain starts. A priest is the happiest person on earth, because he doesn't question his beliefs. He believes in the same verses at 80, that he learned at 8. A priest is beautiful.

But you and I think. We have questions about God. We have questions about our life. We question things.

Therefore we are ugly. Only something that doesn't think is beautiful. As long as you don't question your parents and uncles and aunts, you are a beautiful being. The moment you stop blind beliefs, you become ugly, hated by your own.

I don't really believe I am born for some special purpose. It is philosophy, designed to put you at ease. You can wait all your life for the purpose and die without knowing it. There is no purpose as such, except for what is laid out according to your religion.

When you are just a kid, you pray to God. Hanumanaji is as much the God as is Durga Ma or Ram or Jesus or Allah.
As you grow up, you "come to know" of differences. Hanumanaji is a spirit. Durga Ma is female. Ram was just an avatar of Vishnu. Shiva is not acceptable because you are a Vaishnav.

Beauty ends once you start thinking. Because then, you are scared. You fear wrong. You don't even know the definition of "wrong" but you dread it. You limit your thoughts and actions to refrain from "wrong."

That's the end of beauty. You become a miserable product of your religion, caste, and creed.

As a kid, you loved God, in all His forms. As you grow up, you start differentiating among the different names and shapes.

You then fear "God of other people". You have your own idea, possibly moulded into a form, with a name. Any other name and shape start scaring you. That induces hatred and bitterness against "others' God". The obsession goes to an extent where "your Ram" is different from "others' Ram".

The idea of personal God is good as long as it provides you assurance of God's existence. Once you start differentiating among names and shapes, you are lost. You believe "your Ram" is better than "his Ram".

You forget that there is no difference. That names, shapes may vary but God is a single entity...across castes and religions. It shouldn't matter what you or others call Him. Nobody was there when God was named. But thoughts occur. And these thoughts put an end to the "beautiful you".

It doesn't mean that thinking is wrong. Thoughts and opinions are good as long as they keep you at peace. The moment you start thinking otherwise, your beauty ends. You become an object with subjective thoughts and ideas. You reject God in any form but what you perceive. That's bad.

If your mom changes Her name, She is still your mom. You can't deny it. But not only you do deny it, you go on hating people who call your mom with a different name. Think, and yet stay beautiful. Do not let confusion deprive you of your beauty.

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata.
Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was to stay …

The Truth behind MUDRA Loan and Standup India Loans

The government talks about inclusive growth, development, and enabling people to set up and expand their businesses. The government even came up with MUDRA loan facility for micro-entrepreneurs and Standup India scheme for bigger businesses. Do they really help? Of course, provided you know someone who can get your work done. Before coming to MUDRA loan, let me explain the Standup India scheme loans / support.
Standup India Scheme Details You will have to arrange a caste certificate or a female gender certificate if you wish to avail help from the Stand up India government scheme. The Standup India scheme is limited to people of scheduled castes (SC), scheduled tribes (ST) and women entrepreneurs. The Stand up India scheme website itself states it clearly.


If you have to get a loan under this scheme, transfer 51% of your company share to someone belonging to ST/ST/ or someone female. Alternatively, you may go for fake SC/ST certificate or better still, a Dalit caste certificate, like…

Smart Artificial Intelligence Dangers - What is Musk doing?

🛰When Stephen Hawkings said human race has the biggest threat from its own scientists, he was not totally wrong.
Elon Musk, of Tesla Motors, is going a bit too far with his science obsession. I can understand electric cars & Hyperloop transportation. I can also understand with his space ferrying plans where he has proposed to ferry people to the moon and back. Was it a space elevator? I can't recall.
Anyway, his team dealing with artificial intelligence has found that their machines have developed their own language for communicating with each other.
This is scary, because even animals on this planet can make certain sounds only, to express their feelings. None other than the humans have a full set of words that can be used for anything. And it is not restricted to few sounds with varying pitch. It is a whole complicated language.
Now Musk's team working on artificial intelligence says it has discovered that the machines in their experimental network, are using differen…
