Only unexpected gifts make life worth living. What is life without such gifts? A burden, perhaps. But the existence of such moments which are totally unforseeable, make life boundlessly rich. If my lonely musings below are able to give anyone such unexpected happiness then I think my effort has been rewarded.
So, never expect, just live.
I have created this blog to share my experiences, feelings, thoughts, dreams and actions with all these known and unknown people who are willing to take the risk of living their lives seriously. I believe that the only way left for us, who are living in twenty first century, to live authentically, goes through an engagement of our existence with frivolities generated by modernism. The globally spread of cosmopolitan lifestyle is the true spectrum of the frivolous. Although modernism is dead by now but its ghost is still living. The coming of post-modernism is a positive phenomena but it should not be heralded as a new way of liberation. Because it is not another metanarrative. Cultural singularities must contest each other but in a friendly manner. Not to dominate, but to elevate each other. Anyone who is interested in such a pursuit should share his/her views here. Waiting for the arrival of a few thinking minds. Prabhsharanbir Singh
