Peace Calls

On the Go!

This post is for those of us who are a bit different from the majority. For those who don't fit in the general societal frames in terms of thinking, life style, choice of life partner, way of bringing up our children, dressing style, etc... For example, those of us when walking on the street holding your spouse's hand notice people looking at you in a weird fashion, in my case because I am a brown...

Dumb People Kill in the Name of God

Most conflicts in todays world happen in the name of religion, when most religions and belief systems talk about peace and love! How does this happen? Can human brain be so dumb not to understand that the Power that created the human race cannot instigate it's suffering. It's like a mother giving birth to children and then having them kill and torture each other to prove their love for her. I...

To My Fellow Humanitarian Workers

Over fifteen years ago, I joined the humanitarian workforce to be part of the Red Cross response to an unfortunate earthquake in Bhuj, Gujarat. After that I had the honor of serving in super cyclone recovery efforts in Odisha, and a school fire response in Kumbhakonam, Tamil Nadu where 94 children were burned to death among other small disaster responses in India. As a young mother at the time, th...

One God of All!

The more you study various religious books, you find more commonality in the various teachings than differences. I actually wrote an article about commonalities between Islamic, Christian and Hindu scriptures that was later published in a US Institute for Peace' book. Yes, there are differences among religions but not so big that they would compel people to kill thousands on the other side! A...

Claim Positivity and Act with it!

Sometimes when you let yourself be led by God and let go of things that hold you back, you are able to find inspiration in places and/or from people you didn't expect it! What a liberating feeling it is!Yes, the same old insight we have heard so many times and yet we fail to practice it, mostly because we are not very thoughtful about where our focus should be. Letting go of thoughts that are...

Texas Shooting - Take Action People

Once again, there was mass shooting in the US. For more information, please visit: please remember not to blame the gun or how it may have facilitated the killing of at least 20 innocent people. Also, don't forget 'guns don't kill people, people kill people'! Very importantly don't even think about how a gun could increase the impact manyfold ...

Divesity Whispers

 Diversity has been hurting for generations! If one doesn't belong to the color, race, ethnicity or religion of the majority in a nation, they have to continuously prove themselves to be patriots, sufficiently talented and sometimes good enough to be able to live!

Ah, The Moments of Faith!

Faith and fear,How different they are,To find a place in my heart,They're always at war!There are moments,When fear wins,It feels everything's shut,And it gets so dark within!Then there are times,When faith is victorious,There's light, hope,And a fresh portion of breeze!Clearly, fear is undesirable,Yet, life often brings it around,The slimy emotion finds way in the heart,My resistance no matter ho...
