Can we now admit that humans are programmed to behave in a certain manner?
Why human programming is the most denied fact in human civilization? Fact of human programming is undeniable in face of immense technological advancement. After all what is Artificial Intelligence? Is programming machines is different from human programming? May be in procedure but the contents or essence of the programming is not very different. Human programming is based on past and starts from the scratch. At the beginning human programming involves no written Code. The written Code is last stage of programming. Formation of opinions by reading is that part. Following written rules or laws is that part of programming. In case of artificial intelligence, foundation of artificial is based on written code created by programmer.

History of Treachery in India
Tryst with treachery in India is rather ancient. However at first, I will refer to two namely Jaichand and Mir Jafar. Have you ever met any person in India with identical name? No and never. Their treacherous conduct is too well known. However one name is not so notorious. He is Gulab Singh. People do name Gulab but reason is that his treachery is not too well known.
Jaichand is also spelled as Jai Chandra and has a wiki page devoted to him here. According to this page the betrayal of Jaichand is fictional. As if history is not fictional. As per another wiki page, Jaichand was king of Kannouj and there was no Prithviraj Chouhan.
As regards Mir Jafar, it is too recent to falsify. He is a character which is also part of French History. Mir Jafar, was the commander in the army of Nawab of Bengal Siraj-Ud-Daulah. He betrayed Siraj ud-Daulah to become the next Nawab. Thus after helping the British defeat Siraj ud-Daulah he became the new Nawab of Bengal in 1757 with military support from the British East India Company as a reward for his betrayal. Wiki page on Mir Jafar affirms this. Continue reading
Why Human relationships turn sour?
Humanity exist in relationships. Civilization is a relationship. Howsoever we may crave, we can not exist without relationships. Relationship could be life long like marriage or as Parent or it could be sporadic like that with bus driver, Milkman or Postman.
In spite of such immense importance of relationships, relationships often fail. When we talk of relationships, marriage is unnecessarily notorious. Parents of grownups find their relationship with children turning sour. Friends turn foe. Siblings who grow up together and have decade of joint past do not see each other eye to eye, in later life. What happens?
Is it marriage?
Answer is emphatic no. Marriage may be a catalyst in some cases but it certainly is not the cause. Marriage do introduce new characters and ideas in the equation of relationship and may require adjustments but that is not the only cause. Continue reading
The serene yet pseudo silence of mind
The gigantic wheel of mind never really stops. If you do not know what it is about, please read no further. It is personal and private. Find some other sensation do not bother with this rambling.
Mind like earth, spins and moves with speed. Earth is rotating at the speed of 94 miles per second and we do not notice. Mind is much more faster. May be faster than light!! But it movers in circles. Steer out of one, it will find another circle. Continue reading
Happy New Year 2017.
What is luck?
The word luck is often understood as some kind of miracle. Often luck is used as synonym of phrase “good fate”. Like wise bad fate is bad luck. Hindi word which has ascended on English vocabulary as well is KISMAT.
Kismat encompasses everything what happens in a life time. From birth to death. Thus the word kismat is too broad. Thus if one believes in kismat s/he has to fatalistic and leave everything at the fate. But life does not play like that. We are posed with choices every moment and we choose our way forward.
I understand the kismat or luck or fate are relative to circumstances. When facing impossibility, all three are true. For example if I jump off a 30 story building, chances of death are certain and only some strange unforeseen event can prevent it but that is very unlikely too. So the question is:
What really is Kismat?
