The Mark of Jagan-Nath , Puri

As I walked towards the so Famous temple, I found myself staring in awe at the throngs of people, mostly older, following blindly the Pundas ( Pundits/ self procliamed..messengers of the almighty).
As I was being pushed in the queue to enter the temple, I noticed

"ONLY HINDUS ALLOWED"
I kept looking at that for quite some time!

The next 45 odd minutes passed pretty quickly, while I was absorbing the magnanimity of the temple.
Ancient Rock
Carved
with sculptures of sexually explicit positions
and
Gods
Goddesses
The pantheon of Hindu Gods
The blind ritualistic behaviour of people
Offerings of Ghee and stuff to purify the sins
It went on..

I moved out.. took a local bus to rush to Bhuvaneshwar / airport to cath my 2 'oclock flite!
Surrounding by Oridya speaking local population, I was quite n amazement of being part of a country which is so so very diverse, not only in the surrounding but also in Language and cultures, and i am so lucky to be able to experiance so much in so less times.

Throughout the flight, my mind was so so stuck of how can I as an indivisual bring about a sea change in a country of such mammoth diversification.

How, By 2020, 80% of Us Indians will be just youth..between 18-35yrs of age.
How can I help move the Nation of such Diversification.

I got my ideas.
I am still carying them
I am confiedent of doing something for MY Country
I am so proud to be an Indian!!

Yes I am , We will ! AND WE CAN!!
the Dragons will be just watching!!

I am not sure if you have heard of the Movie Idiocracy 
But watching the Political news around me makes me wonder so many times... on how the equation of smart and dumb people in the world stands?

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

It is Sad

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…
