    God, Truth, Love, Goodness, Beauty & Human Complexes

    You say you want to marry a good Christian. For that be a good Christian. Believe that God made us in His Own Image, believe that God loves all, believe that God is Beautiful, believe that He loves Beauty, Truth, Trust and Goodness—then how can He create an “ugly woman”? God always compensates...

    Before we try to unravel the mysteries of God, let us go look at our own existence. "Go" because we need to mentally move out of our bodies, and look at ourselves from the eyes of any rational alien.

    General Sanjay Dutt—Mumbai Bomb Blasts Case (1993)

    Does either the 'bandh' or the signature-campaign amount to contempt of court? Or could it be considered, by a somewhat stretched imagination, as an interference into the administration of Justice? At a casual glance, the warning/caution by Mr. Nikam (Ld. Public Prosecutor for the State of...

    Islam Quran - To All Sikh Students

    Every Holy book is a veritable treasure. For example:- 1)The repeated recitation of a single word of the Holy Quran, can lead to sidhi. The varied pronunciation of a single word, like 'Bismillah', has different effects. The use of a single 'ayat' from the Quran can asnswer our prayers...

    Tsunami: Coordination

    It is a concept—a relief-multiplier, addressed to those who have the resources, e.g. ‘Yahoo!’, ‘msn’, ‘Google’, ‘livejournal’, ‘Sikhnet’ or UNESCO itself.

    The Turbaned Sikh

    About a decade and a half ago I advocated ready-made short turbans/patkas when I found that some Sikhs-- especially those in the 'driving trade', were unable to keep their hair kempt and wearing turbans in a rushed & untidy fashion and, thus, giving a slovenly view of a Sikh's appearance to the...
