To savvy this point we must first step into neutral zone even by putting off our religious pair of specs.

Are We Moving Towards Masochism?


Everyone is dissatisfied and disappointed by the circumstances faced by our beloved country. There are certain contributions to this current state of cognitive dissonance. We are impatient to evolve and hence looking for a magical elixir or waiting for someone to rescue our rapidly sinking boat. To put simply we are looking for “a shortcut for ourselves” and that too should involve no pain but only gain, or gains to be precise!  Continue reading

It is is very very sad for me to share this horrific news with you. Mr. Zaradari’s name can now be found in Urbandictionary.com . I am speechless. I do not know what to say.

Curse because he chose wrong forum to do that. Continue reading
