Parallel Universes and Multiple Realities

It is strongly hypothesized that multiple copies of 'our' Universe exists. All with their own entities like space, time, matter etc etc. They also have a similar Sun and a similar Earth that revolves around it. Only the non deterministic events differ! Now that may theoretically mean the Earth may revolve around Proxima Centauri. But say for our benefit, we assume that at least a sizeable number of Earths revolve around their Suns. Yeah, I know its funny but possible as practically an infinite number of parallel universes may exist. So the probability of any one type event (not one event) is also infinite. So take a step back and think what it might mean.

It may mean that you in a different universe may have chosen a different life partner, a different career. You could have avoided a divorce, or have become a serial killer. You could have married your childhood sweetheart, whom you had to let go in this life. The possibilities are unending and all entirely possible, provided the Parallel Universes do exist. We can never be sure, that's almost for sure. But anyway, who's stopping us from imagining?

Just as I was thinking about it, at this time, you are perhaps with your lost ones, where they are still alive. May be you are still a child, may be time progresses slower in some universes(time is not actually a constant). May be you are still going to school in your half pants holding the hands of your mother, nagging about an ice cream. May be you are in a world of steampunk, where the digital revolution is yet to happen. Naturally this has been in fiction for quite some time and some really good movies have also been made and books published.

I would love to see my childhood again if possible, if I could travel to any such universe. It would perhaps be nice.

Republic of India's sustained discrimination of Hindus

Republic of India has been independent for over 70 years now. Ever since 1947, and particularly since 1950 many Governments have come and gone. The Constitution of India has been amended. By over 370 times and counting. The name of the nation has also changed. From the simple 'Republic of India' it was changed to the 'Secular Sovereign Socialist Democratic Republic of India' for reasons best known to the then ruling elites. Few policies have remained unchanged or unchallenged regardless of the different Governments, political parties, emergencies and so on.

That is the systematic institutional and legal discrimination of Hindus.

Sounds surprising?

And yes, BJP fanboys - you are just as guilty if not more. Let me explain why.

There are plenty of laws, rules and regulations that this marvellous Republic of ours has given us. Learning about the laws that govern our lives require us to take a Law degree. Literally. The Constitution that we are bound to live by is somethin…

Fallen - Based on a true story (almost)

A group of young guys had gathered around a lifeless body on the road. A minivan had just hit a girl and sped off. The girl bounced on the road and rolled around once and came to a stop. The rest of the girls on the street scattered. A couple of guys came to check on the girl. A crowd gathered and collected what little valuables she had left with her.

A girl saw it all from her second floor window on Sheil road, Liverpool. Natalie was aware of the hazards of what she used to do. She knew the roads were dangerous, especially at night. But then, day or night - she was never truly safe. Her escape was only in heroin. She did not dare to build a world of her own by her own means. She tried before. It never worked out. So she had transferred the responsibility to what society calls ‘substance’. Heroin gave her a cushion, her sleep and let her keep her sanity. Or so she used to think.

Natalie was alone. Her addiction was not. It came with dependence, depression, homelessness and rejection. He…

A Good Day

I have a beautiful small house in the hills. It is about 3 km from Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. It is not much. Probably calling it a cottage is stretching it too far. I have got a couple of bedrooms, a small drawing room cum kitchen where we dine as well. There is storage and a small garage that is mostly empty. I have got another small room with just a single bed and a study built on the first floor. It is just about ten feet by ten feet but it has got a retractable ceiling and a wall made of glass with the rest of the roof being something of a balcony. This is the place where I like to spend most of my time. x

In the front, there is a garden with some flowers in the front and trees lining the boundary wall. My mother has planted a few vegetables in the back that we regularly use in the kitchen. We mostly require only rice and eggs from the market.

A typical day starts with me waking up and going for a morning stroll. I often spend my nights in the room on the roof. So the first thing…
