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…

Letters from the Land of Punt

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.

However, within a year of publishing it, it has grown into a homing beacon for Somali and Somaliland Frankincense harvesters who have found a voice that echos their frustration at the disparities and inequalities of the trade.

Over the past year I have received many messages and emails from Somali…

‘Noise’ by Brett Garcia Rose-a review

He will sit in his majestic posture- stay calm and composed- will perhaps watch an approaching stranger with a reluctant eye!

Because he knows he is the mighty beast-he has nobody to be afraid of!

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…

#Cyberpeacefare #Work #Bertrand Russell

"Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth"s surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid."  Bertrand Russell

(Seems to me automation/robotics is fast substituting for the first kind of work; hopefully humans will be telling robots what to do ?  Al )

Dean F. Wilson –The Chains of War-a review

It’s a saga of valour! It’s a saga of sacrifice! And it’s a saga of eternal quest of human from the darkness to the light!

The tale is epic in scope- depicting a journey against evil, a battle against darkness and indomitable human will. It’s an absorbing story of fantasy no doubt-but more than that it’s the story of humanity- the humanity that can fight relentlessly and fearlessly against what is evil -even in the face of death!

The children of Telm trilogy series is a work that…

Bhaskryya Deka’s novel-‘The unwanted shadow’-a review

Life is indeed strange!

In every bend, in every corner of life- life is ready with new surprises, with new twists- that can never be matched even with the wildest imaginations of the most thrilling pot-boiler.

Human brain sometimes tries to fathom the logic behind all the strange happenings-enough to beat wildest of imaginations in fictions.

Subconscious mind sometimes provides it with the answer.

Sometimes it remains silent, placing the human soul in a dilemma-where to…

‘Impressions and expressions’ by George Schnaider-a review

And then God crated the earth.

The earth was void, without any form and darkness was everywhere.

Then the God commanded –let there be light and there was light.

The story of human is the story to the quest of light- from ignorance to knowledge, from death to immortality and from darkness to the light.

The story of human is the story of optimism- a saga of breaking the shackle of pain, grief and despair.

‘Impressions and expressions’ by George Schnaider is the song of…

The Pope, ISIS and U.S. Military Intervention

Much is being made of the Vatican’s uncharacteristic statements lending support for limited use of force against ISIS [Vice News].   The most recent came from Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Holy See’s representative to the UN agencies in Geneva and Vienna.  In an interview with Crux, Archbishop Tomasi said, "We have to stop this kind of genocide.  Otherwise we'll be…

Mr.Cure to our family.......

Still we think he is there.

When we look at the place where he had lived for thirteen years with us, we still feel a vacuum at the deep in our heart-a vacuum that tells us he is no more with us. He will no longer come waging his tail when we call him…….

Moments are passing in the life like a straw floating in a mountain river- passing into oblivion every single minute.

Nobody cares for them-nobody remembers them-just passing into the deep darkness of forgetting.

But there…

‘The Poppy Field Diary’ by Carey Richard-the poetic story of a next door simple Afghan girl

Afghanistan!

It is said that when you step in inside the country, a sign board will greet you, written something like the following-

It is absolutely forbidden to cross this border into Afghan territory.

In reality it is forbidden! Forbidden by nature, forbidden by weather and forbidden by man for centuries………

A stony land will welcome you once you are gone through the Khyber Pass- the gateway to the country from the side of Pakistan. For miles there are only stones and…

RULE OF JUNGLE

It’s a savage world-where the rule of the jungle thrives.

In this strange world-fierce animals roam on the streets of the modern day world in disguise of human, hiding their sharp teeth, canine jaws and dagger like claws. Here the survival of the fittest is the rule of the day. Here words like friendship, trust, loyalty are only to be found in dictionary and words like corporate ethics have been given a complete go bye! Animal in the form of human can go to any length to achieve their…

Political Prisoner for a Day: Why Small-Scale Crackdowns Still Work

The past week has confirmed that despite the Burmese government's made-for-export show of reforms, there is still no such thing as political freedom in Burma. Yet, you probably haven't read anything about the nation's ongoing (but increasingly repressed) student protests in this week's headlines. That's largely because the regime has responded in such a way that is threatening enough to stifle dissent at home, but not violent enough to invoke international outrage. This is the "sweet spot"…

’Maya-in search of her Tantric father’ by Vipin Behari Goyal-a review

Everybody starts it from the beginning. Let us start this time from the end. The end impression that I have after finishing the book ’Maya-in search of her Tantric father’ by Vipin Behari Goyal!

After finishing the book, some lines from the Waste Land of T.S Eliot’s Wasteland had suddenly crossed my mind

“Ganga was sunken, and the limp leaves

waited for rain, while the black clouds

gathered far distant, over Himavant.

The jungle crouched, humped in…
