Mining in Outer Space is going to become a reality

http://ojaicafeemporium.com/blog/category/announcements/ Noted English thinker Thomas Malthus famously commented that, ‘ As population would increase geometrically, doubling every 25 years, food production would only grow arithmetically, which would result in famine and starvation, unless births were controlled.’ Though the statement is 220 years old, it still holds credence!

गांधी और हिन्दू धर्म पर एक सोच

‘अहिंसा’ और ‘सत्याग्रह’ ऐसे घटक हैं जो सार्वभौमिक तौर से महात्मा गांधी के साथ जुड़े हुए हैं। एक आध्यात्मिक व्यक्ति होने के साथ, गांधी के हिंदू धर्म के प्रति विचार पारंपरिक हिंदू अनुष्ठानों से अलग थे; गांधी ने रस्मों और प्रथाओं की सदस्यता नहीं ली, जो हिंदू शास्त्रों मे एक एहम भूमिका निभाती है। उन्होंने बिना शर्त के वेद या भगवद गीता जैसे ग्रंथों की पक्षता भी नहीं ली। गौतम बुद्ध की तरह, गांधी ने

एक बार तो आ जाओ

तेरे दरस के प्यासे नैना, एक झलक दिखला जाओ. मन से तुम्हें पुकारें साईं, एक बार तो आ जाओ. तुम्हें भक्त प्यारे हैं अपने, रखते सबका सदा ख़याल. फिर मुझ पर क्यों कृपा नहीं की ? बस मेरा है यही सवाल. कमी रह गयी कहाँ भक्ति में, इतना तो बतला जाओ. मन से तुम्हें पुकारें साईं, एक बार तो आ जाओ. दीप जलाए जल से तुमने, सबने देखा तेरा कमाल. महामारी को दूर भगाया, आई
