On Mothers’ day…dedicated to all mothers

Today when my son gave a lovely greeting to his mother on Mothers’ day it was a time travel, a flashback into my childhood. I am not an atheist but a rationalist and being a rationalist I never believed in any rituals, tenets, astrology, etc. My father is a retired teacher and was involved in many social welfare activities especially in the tribal areas. He always taught us about virtues but was a staunch opponent of superstitions prevailing over there. One day I asked him about the most subjective mysteries of the world i.e., “GOD”. My inquisitive mind always wondered does God exist, if yes how does he manifest? Different people had different views and as a teenager I was confused with their nebulous notions. Most people associated God with rituals. I wanted to clarify with my dad. He is a well-read person and had a deep understanding of theology and literature. He told me most of the people in the world are agnostic. The believers still may have a doubt in some corner of their mind a…

Singapore – The Roaring Lion of the East

After visiting so many countries around the world and seeing the plethora of diverse cultures, great civilizations and unique nations I feel Singapore is one of the best countries to live I have never ever seen around the globe. Every civilian would unconditionally love his motherland just like I love India irrespective of whatever state it is. But anyone who visits Singapore would fall in love with this Island nation irrespective of where he belongs.
Singapore is a city state located in South East Asia between Malaysia and Indonesia. Despite Malay being the national language English is the Lingua Franca. Merlion is the emblem which commonly represents the Lion Nation with 5 partings of the mane which translates into pentagon of 5 stars of the national flag representing – Democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality. It is a melting pot of diverse cultures and ethnicities mostly Chinese, Malay, Indian, Caucasian and Eurasians. It consists of 63 tiny islands which have increased the…

An Evening in Paris

An Evening in Paris
Travelling around the world was always fascinating and indeed a dream for me being an intrepid explorer. As a child I used to travel within the state and was very excited whenever I came across unique places. As I grew up I could travel to different states and felt even happier to see the diversity. I wondered if India itself has so much of diversity within the country how interesting would it be to explore the world outside. My first journey outside India started with Malaysia followed by Indonesia, Singapore, Tokyo, Bangkok and Hong Kong. I travelled down to different countries in ASPAC, interacted with people and tried to understand their culture, customs and civilization. My curiosity to explore the world beyond the country & continent (saat samandar paar…) increased even more as I learnt more and more about the world. Europe is a dream destination for most of the people from other parts of the world. Greek, Roman, British, French, German, Dutch and many more …

Made in Japan

Made in Japan
Japan – the island nation is famous for many things. The first developed country in Asia despite adverse geographical conditions, the oldest empire existing on earth, the land of rising sun, Japanese tea ceremony Sado, Sushi the national dish, the great Samurai warriors, the gigantic Sumo wrestlers and above  all “Made in Japan” robots. Its technology had made it an iconic nation.
I was amazed to see many marvels of science and technology during my recent visit to Tokyo Science Center. What impressed me most was apart from being a research and training center for healthcare professionals it offers many novel modes of training like using realistic organ models for endoscopic surgery and cardiovascular disease treatment in an effort to introduce its cutting edge medical devices and technological advancement to the whole world enabling the healthcare professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills in treating patients across the globe for unmet medical needs making it a…
