                       Terrorism: A Word that Diminishes Hope                                                               

Terrorism is only a word in English; however it is a peril for humankind. India faces the issues of neediness, populace, yearning and education. In any case, spread of fear mongering is the most unnerving of all. Be it in the little nations like Ireland and Israel, or in the enormous one’s life Russia and USA, fear based oppression has…

Social Apathy: Why do we choose to look away?

Social Apathy: Why do we choose to look away?

 

I will never forget the day when I turned “bad.”

 

It was hot and humid in tropical Cambodia and the sun had already awoken from its slumber hours ago. With glistening beads of sweat streaming down their faces, two girls, no more than 10 years old, approached me and put forth a basket of handmade bracelets, each covered in a fine layer of dirt. A sign below one of the girl’s baskets read “1 for 1,000…

Ethical Degradation and a Tipping Point: A Micro Solution to Macro (Global) Problems

Everybody Cheats

A world leading psychology and behavioral economics professor at Duke University Dan Ariely wrote about well-known Enron scandal in his seminal book The Honest Truth about Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone - Especially Ourselves. “Everyone involved with Enron was deeply corrupt… but I began to think that there may have been a different type of dishonest at work–one that relates more to wishful blindness and is…

Looking for a Humanity

We may live in times when the world is entering more dangerous in decades. There are many controversies happening around us over recent years. From the bullying in real life until hate speech or trash-talking in social media, from the terrorism until ethnic cleaning. We may live in times where the difference was easy to find, either race, ethnic, color, religion, age, gender, and politic view but not with the tolerance. We may live in times when the world not being a home for everyone…

Beams and Fulcrums

Seesaws are meant to be played by either rising up or dropping down. There’s no fun in just balancing at the middle. Same goes with how life works. Having an equivalent state to other people in terms of wealth is therefore a step away from impossible. Yes, we are seen by the Deity as equals but that doesn’t mean that He’ll give everyone similar blessings. With that set-up, most individuals still gets…

Encompassing Social Media: Lobbying for Ethics

Encompassing Social Media: Lobbying for Ethics

 

An innovation without the integrities is like triumphing a war without nemeses.

With the illumination that touched the desiccated skin to the pale eyes perusing the misshapen, our civilization is gradually becoming tattered. Technology has been dominant, or even commanding, in today’s society. It has given us the opportunities, which are exceedingly favorable for us; thus,…

(Not) Taking personal responsibility

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”Mahatma Gandhi

We’re living in a world full of ethical challenges. It goes from the most ordinary things like workplace or family dynamics to global issues like climate change. Ranking them by a particular order is pointless – everybody has his own views, thus any ranking would be strictly subjective. Since moral priorities vary from person to person, the common thing would be integrity – the devotion to…

Different kinds of problem are existing in today`s world. It is been a part of our daily lives. And for me, I am seeing that lack of self-discipline is the largest challenge that everyone of us must conquer. It is a moral value that we must have but because of our extreme desires for own happiness and material things, self-discipline is being stepped-out. It is guaranteed that lack of self-discipline will result on serious issues like:
