R. Nazir in his new suspense psychological fiction ‘Bearing Witness.’

The argument is non ending –regarding the philosophy of mind.

It can hear, can sees an information-but the information might not be stored in the consciousness of the individual. But it is not lost either-it is stored in the deepest hiding place of the mind.

Because mind is far deeper than Mariana trench!

The information that are disturbing to us are automatically gets stored in our unconscious minds. But sometimes they are so disturbing that they return back again and again in our nightmare- sometimes they get so cruel so as to control our emotions and behaviour.

Even the haunting may rise to such a difficult level that the helpless soul imagines of ending all misery- getting relieved of all pain!

Unable to cope with such stress that may tear up the life like a piece of paper- unable to cope up with life, the individual may think of a separate entity- an absolutely new person within- saying-‘just go. Destroy yourself.’

LETTERS FROM THE LAND OF PUNT

I did not expect this blog to receive much attention except from those who might want to work with oleoresins or buy some Frankincense from my shop.

Until………..

Until, he senses danger-then the heavy body of the beast will move as swiftly as lightning crosses the sky- a movement will go through the air as fast as approaching storm and ……….

He is lion, the king of beasts.

Africans-the people from the Dark Continent-the land of sunshine-are somehow moulded in the nature of the king. Where death thrives- the African male has to know how to play with the danger- where to stay calm and composed and where to swing into action like a bulldozer.

Well, maybe not all the African males-but suddenly the protagonist of our story.
