Dear Diligent Reader,

These questions came to my mind between 2006-2009. I am still curious. I do not have answers to many many listed here. Sometimes we blindly believe that is told to us or what is said in old books but real situations or decisions can be different. I'd be happy to hear from you, if you have lived a similar situation, went through a similar dilemma and know what could be the right answer, please use web-form below to send me your thoughts. I may reply you, often on the same day! :) Thank you.

I am sorry if my questions appear dangerous, outrageous, controversial and/or disturbing but are they false?  I do not want to appall you or raise your voice or blood pressure.  Some of them are trouble areas, often ignored aspects but they are no weapon of mass destruction just curiosities and concerns of a common man.  Your answers or opinions may well be equally dangerous, outrageous, controversial and/or disturbing but not false. Please do not send me your abuse attacks. Kuch log zamane me, bahut nadaan hote hai, waha lejaate hai kashti, jahan toofan hote hai.

I must clearly point out here that I am no Pseudo Guru or Philosopher: I also do not have such intentions. Many of you diligent readers of my website are more learned and better informed than me. Many times your emails have given me something new to learn. It is this very reason that I keep my site up and running, for the same reason I am continuing. Curiosities are part of all of us as humans. Questions, Answers, Art, Literature are all part of us, thoughts, ideas innovations come are the flowers, fruits, leaves and branches which come on a tree. If your mind tree has something positive to share with me, please feel free write in. Okay?
