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. A new report by the Carnegie-Stimson[1] collaboration proposes that Pakistan consider the following five nuclear weapon-related initiatives: • Shift declaratory policy from “full spectrum” to “strategic” deterrence. • Commit to a recessed deterrence posture and limit production of short-range delivery vehicles and tactical nuclear weapons. • Lift Pakistan’s veto on Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty negotiations and reduce or stop fissile material production. • Separate civilian and military nuclear facilities. • Sign the Comprehensive

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 get some idea about the subtle system that exists in all of us and can actually give us divine experience. (www.sahajayoga.org) Also do read this

What is Psychology and what do Psychologists do?

What exactly is Psychology? What is it that psychologists do? Can you read my mind? Can you tell if a person is lying?………….. These are only a few of the questions which most people ask me when I say I am a psychologist. More often than not, most people already have answers to these questions, thanks to their preconceived notions about and misconception of this complex field.
