Suicide and what it means -Kapil Gupta

Suicide and what it means -Kapil Gupta

Life is built on one basic principle – the extension and longevity of life itself. Every organism, every cell, everything is built with this one hardcoded algorithm. In extreme cases such as where adrenaline takes over or where we have a brain freeze moment, the algorithm may reverse itself.  The only two other true facts important for any organism are better mate & better food. Longevity of the organism is the basic trait that governs reproduction. If a cell knows itself to be immortal, it may just cease to multiply or reproduce. Knowing that to be the case, why is suicide co... Read More

History is for us to learn, not judge!

History is for us to learn, not judge!

George Washington had 100’s of human slaves. Blacks that were part of his property. Yet, he is one of the most renowned libertarians of all time. Yet, he is one of the founding fathers of the place we know as United States of America. Here, locally in India, I used to jump traffic lights when I was in college. I don’t anymore. It was illegal then and it is illegal now. However, it was socially acceptable then and it is much less so now. Some other stuff I have done in that age may now be considered downright filthy but I am not ashamed of it. It was me back then and it doesn’t take away... Read More

​Independence – What does it mean for an individual?

​Independence – What does it mean for an individual?

If independence is the ability to do what you want, when you want and where you want, then let me start by breaking down the basic notion of independence for you. Are you really independent? Can you really be independent? Will you really want to be independent? Before everyone jumps to the obvious answer, I want you all to really think hard about it. “What does independence really mean to you?” Most decisions that you will ever make in your life will revolve around social interdependence (each and everyone around you), and it doesn’t really take your freedom away. You are ... Read More

Random Musings Around Suicide

Random Musings Around Suicide

Saw something in the morning and started thinking about the concept of suicide: Ending one’s life of your own wish. While most people think of suicide as cowardly, I completely disagree. In my view, suicide is perhaps one of the most courageous acts one could perform. Unless, it is caused by a chemical imbalance. In case of a chemical imbalance, suicide is not cowardly, it is out of one’s own control and becomes a more natural phenomenon. Human brain is wired to be the most efficient towards oneself. Survival being the key. Taking extraneous chemicals out, a human will do everything ... Read More

#CouchFeminism – Overdoses Women Empowerment

#CouchFeminism – Overdoses Women Empowerment

Today is Women’s Day! A day to either celebrate the might of 50% of the human population or, to rue over the exploits of 50% of the human population. The intention of both need to be identical. Creating the right place for women in the society. Please note, I didn’t say equal. Men and women are not equal. Now that I have your angry attention, let me highlight the fundamental issues I see with feminists today. Looks like all that the feminists of India (perhaps the whole world) are on this ultimate mission to get added privileges, reservations and incentives for women. I call this #Co... Read More

Tough Economic Lesson For Country’s Engineering Academicians

Tough Economic Lesson For Country’s Engineering Academicians

Engineering is the practice of making things better, more efficient and getting more out of the resources. With the opening up of the economy nearly 2 decades back and the global workforce movement, India saw plethora of opportunities open up. The easiest thing to do was to open up a new engineering college, and hence we have more engineering colleges than McDonald’s, Dominos, PizzaHut and a few more fast food chains put together. Over the last 2-3 years, as the industry has tightened and Indian IT industry is seeing perhaps its first slump in 2 decades, most smart colleges have double... Read More
