The meaning of Life

At last! I've discovered it. At least I think I do.

I didn't run butt-naked on the streets shouting "Eureka!", but it was nevertheless, a realization for me. Before I tell you the meaning of life, a few words:


  1. The whole world runs on faith. If you have faith in my words, it shall probably make you a happier person. I'm not asking for money, or anything. I'm not asking you to ditch your religion or culture. I'm not asking you to do anything exotic. All I need is just your faith. With that, this might be the religion of the future.
  2. I'm not promising you a better life, or anything for that matter. You may probably get peace of mind if you follow what I say, or anything, or nothing as far as that goes.
  3. This information is being passed as-is and without any warranty of any kind. So if you don't find what you're looking for, DON'T SUE ME.
  4. I could as well put the whole propaganda into a book, into TV, advertise it online.. Whatever. I'm not going to do that. A blog is the perfect place for it to be: the best things in the world come for free.
  5. You aren't probably going to get eternal salvation after reading this.
  6. You may probably have known it, but you thought it was meaningless.
  7. If you are just looking for plain old fun, read it. ;)
  8. If you think that I've gone mad, keep your thoughts to yourself.
  9. If you don't like any of this, don't do anything. But, If you want to pass this on, for ridicule or otherwise, you are free (and welcome!) to do so.




The meaning and purpose of life, our very existence is: to endure it. That's right: No other reason. We can't get away from the shackles of existence, till we die. Though it may sound religious, it's true that we are reborn again, and again, and again.


We aren't born to accomplish anything. We were born with absolutely no work in hand. Because accomplishment was never meant to be static. As you accomplish something, you go on.. that's what happens in life. There are lots of things happening in life and you know that. But you don't know all of what's happening out there. As you try to learn, more things crop up;


But life never changes. It evolves constantly. But then, we get trapped into thinking that we are supposed to be working towards betterment, which we already are into doing. So this doesn't mean that you stop innovating, but it means that it's time we looked back into what we were meant to do. The more we want to get involved in the real world, the more we think, the more we worry, the more we struggle and the more we think of doing it, the more we get whipped by the lashes of ignorance.


Do your job, love people, work hard, be right, be creative! That's the secret of enduring existence. Good luck!

The whole picture is.. even if you don't do any work and rot, it wouldn't matter.

I'm not planning to be a sanyasi. Because there's no point in being a sanyasi; That's not the only way to self-realization.

Act Right Now. Or It's Goodbye.

Right now we have an Ebola Pandemic that is exploding and doubling its victims every month. At this rate, everyone will be dead by 2016. Unless we contain it.


Why? There were ~2000 victims a month back. Now there are ~6000. It is estimated that there will be about 20000 victims by November, and about a million people by January. There is no easy cure for Ebola.
What is Ebola? Ebola is a viral disease, like the common cold. Except it's fatal.
It lives within the infected person to multiply, and spread. It multiplies within the infected person and kills the infected person. The infected person bleeds out and dies.


Ebola is spread through contact with the infected person's body fluids - Blood, Slot, Sweat, Semen, Saliva or anything that has traces of the person's infected DNA.
How did it all Start? It is believed that the virus spread from people eating an animal which carried the virus. Although we cannot be sure, it could have been a fruit bat. Fruit bats can carry Ebola,…

Staring into the Abyss

Automation is the new buzzword. People are losing jobs like crazy. The hunger games have started  and now everyone is being forced to feed the croniest capitalists in the world. The beautiful gig economy has lost its sheen and has turned into nothing but a mere bargaining game in every market.

So where does that leave us? Into the abyss of irrelevance.


The abyss of irrelevance: Where many people need not work, many people need not apply and yet they will be forced to work because most common resources would have been squatted on by the rich and the powerful.

For every economy that needs a person to make and sell, we have a machine. But who is going to buy it? Another machine?

Is Communism is going to show it's head again? It will be interesting to watch.

Computing Freedom

DRM. Digital Rights Management. The one word that's meant to protect the rights of the publisher, at the cost of the consumer. It is a scheme that employs cryptographic measures to prevent people from copying/distributing media content, especially music.
What DRM can do for you:
You'll be asked to Pay-per-use of music, video, software that you already bought.Allows the content producer to disable your rights to the published content through hardware measures, including permanent hardware disability, any time they wish to. Which means the music you bought, or the DVD your purhased may not be usable tomorrow, whenever the producer decides to do so.Discourages indie content publishers from making content, because of the royalty involved. Which means sending people the video you shot or the music you composed or the software you wrote could cost you a fortune.Curbing the freedom of the consumer, and milking him, by pushing him to pay a lot of money for a commercial service, though …
