When you despair of our species

Consider the multitudes volunteering to care for Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. Consider the first responders who run towards trouble rather than away from it. Consider Malala Yousafzai who, at 15, despite being shot for advocating for female education, persists. Consider Kailash Satyarthi who campaigns to end child labour (we’re not talking about working too many hours at McDonald’s). Consider the many who work every day, in small ways and large, to make life better for all of us. Because when we make life better for the disadvantaged, the excluded, the enslaved, we do make life better for each and every one of us.

Living & Loving My Life


Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
