परमाणु बम से आज़ादी!

हाल ही मे नोबेल प्राइज़ समिति ने अन्तराष्ट्रीय परमाणु हथियार समाप्ति संगठन (ICAN) को शांति पुरस्कार से नवाज़ा। समिति ने कहा की, “ग्लोबल वार्मिंग, प्रदुषण और आतंकवाद से भी ज्यादा भयानक है परमाणु हथ्यार।इसके उत्पादन को रोकना और परमाणु शक्ति को ऊर्जा के लिए उपयोग करना आवश्यक है।” जब अमेरिकी सेना ने अगस्त 1945 को जापान के हिरोशिमा और नागासाकी पर परमाणु बम गिराए थे, तो इसका प्रभाव पूरी दुनिया ने देखा था। शायद इंसान

Time for the Defence Minister to gear up

It’s a historic moment for India indeed. After a period of 35 years, she witnessed another woman becoming the defence minister of India.

Blood donation is a form of salvation

I am an avid blood donor. In my college too I had donated blood and got yummy refreshments in return. But the best part was that my contribution was literally saving someone’s life. To ensure I get updates regarding blood donation, I signed up to receive notifications from BloodConnect, a wonderful organization working towards addressing blood shortage in India. Today I again got an opportunity to donate to a blood cancer patient. A BloodConnect official

Pakistani Nuclear Politics: Slippery Slope which strengthens Military Gum Boots

According to me, mainstreaming a nuclear Pakistan with a nuclear deal at current stage is a slippery slope which will only strengthen the military gum boots in Pakistan.

Are we really in a position to challenge the creator (GOD)?

Often I hear mind blowing arguments where people actually talk about God as if he was some peon waiting 24/7 to be at our back and call – and if he fails to appear immediately upon being called – we keep the power and authority to sack the peon!! Sometimes I wonder whether to pity such people or just plain ignore the poor ignorant! Anyways, I have given an address in the attached collage. Do
