HUMAN AND NONHUMAN- ONE AMAZING SAGA……….

Life on earth can be traced back to a history of interaction between living beings and the environment. It is only in the last five hundred years or so a species named Homo sapiens has made a lasting and sever change to the way mother earth interacts with her offspring. The industrial revolution and the last two world wars have made a fast changing in the environment pattern of the world. The unexpected surge of technical and scientific thoughts and products has not only made a lasting…

ABANDONMENT OF HUMANITY?

Satya, Treata ,Dvapara-all three Yugas has gone by. The god is still asleep and the world is gaining its potentiality. Both the positive and negative attitude within a person is missing and so human has started to justify every action under the clout of dharma-nobody knows whether it is right or wrong. Pratiharas-the guardians of the mortal world are guarding this world like the apple of their eyes so that no trespassers can penetrate into this world. The sixteen states of the AryaVarta are…

#Cyberpeacefare #Worldwide Awakening #William Boetcher

What a different world this would be if the people of all nations realize that we need first of all a worldwide awakening of public conscience, a spiritual revival  and a moral regeneration before we can have a real political and industrial peace."  William Boetcher

Imagine, if people awakened their consciences and exercised their…

"Someday we must see that freedom for the intellectual is not in acquiring better furniture, is not in being a success, is not in being pampered, is not even in being left alone. Our freedom lies in doing battle with giants, wherever we may find them. We cannot be the New Men - a part of the establishment.  We must be Knights-Errant and like Don, be willing to attempt the impossible - for that is the only freedom..............."…

THE CYBERPEACEFARE IDEA/Al LeBlanc

"A stand can be made against invasion by an Army; no stand can be made against invasion by an idea."  Victor Hugo

The spread of a new wave of "Arab Peace Uprisings" across the Middle East with the despair-self-immolation of Tunisian Fruit Stand Vendor Mohamed Bouazizi (January 2011), was the spark of the Cyberpeacefare Idea.  Why not…

The pen is mightier than the sword

Evolution is the keyword of human progress. From inferior intellect to higher intellect-the story is simply the survival of the fittest. And the fittest is not necessarily the strongest-with more muscle power. The Islamic prophet Muhammad has rightly asserted-‘the ink of the scholar is holier than the life of the martyr.’

Pen here doesn’t only stand for the simple pen of the pocket-it symbolises human thoughts and ideas embedded in the form of books, literature, written papers, and…

Why I’m Following the Burmese Student Protests, and the US Government Should Be Too

Over the past few months, the world has largely overlooked a series of peaceful protests by Burmese students that began in November, coinciding with President Obama’s visit to the Southeast Asian nation. The students are protesting the country’s new National Education Law, which maintains close, centralized government control of the nation’s educational institutions and limit students’ freedom of association (read more…

Judgment and Longing to Belong

I really should have known better.

A few days ago, I was chatting with a French friend of mine. When our conversation turned to the Charlie Hebdo shootings, I began reeling off questions—when she lost her temper with me.

“You’re piling on!”

“But I was only asking questions! There are so…

Adam ? Mada(SA context)

Hallo members

2015 Can be the year of great global and human growth. The objective is to keep the opposition alive and healthy. Then the planet as a whole will prosper in the future. Life is always give and take. Will the supper rich give more opportunities to the supper poor so that those in the middle do not have to work so hard to maintain the balance please?

Thanks to all the mothers, daughters and little girls for your contribution in a too violant and chauvinistic…

MOONCHILD- A SAGA OF ECLIPSE

As per the Book of Enoch, the sons of God, the angels saw the charming girls into Earth-got lured to them and took earthy girls as their wives. The angels taught their wives all matters of forbidden things. The girls bore children who grew up to become giants-and they were destinated to become enemies of human, causing great destruction to civilization. The pain and suffering cry of helpless human reached the heaven and God sent his archangels to bind and capture the fallen angels. Meanwhile…

Ramayana- a timeless epic

What made this epic to defy the jaws of time and remain alive in billions even after thousands of years it was first told?

What is the relevance of this epic on today’s world-today’s first paced world when human is running towards an uncertain future.

Why the generation Y who does not know anything except them will think of that old valued classic will think about it, leave aside reading it?

Because this epic can take them to the path of self realization, give them a break to…

Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time, with David Miliband

Today there are 65 million people who have fled their homes because of conflict or persecution, says the International Rescue Committee's David Miliband. These are refugees not economic migrants, and half of them are children. It's a long-term crisis that will last our lifetimes. Why should we care? And what can we do about it, both at a policy level and as individuals?

Clip of the Month: Winning the Argument on Immigration with David Miliband

As president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), David Miliband oversees both the agency's humanitarian relief operations and its refugee resettlement and assistance programs in several American cities. Although he was not responsible for the EU’s decisions on refugees or immigrants, during his tenure as the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary from 2007 to 2010, he saw how his government responded to an unexpectedly large influx of European workers and the resulting impact on British society. In this clip, Miliband draws on both of these roles and explains why he is confident that Europeans and Americans can be convinced that immigration, in all of its forms, can be positive, economically and culturally. In any case, he says, it’s an argument that "has to be won."

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.
