What is Excitement

The anticipation of something new or unknown is always much more euphoric than that thing itself. Your imagination goes into a frenzy, painting vivid and ebullient pictures of the events about to unfold. You feel giddy, butterflies start titillating your innermost desires, enticing feelings like that, of a new love or the passion of a consummated one. Summoning emotions that transcend mendacity of this pretentious world, absolving you of your dark desires. Yielding an amalgamation of thoughts with emotions & desires that elates you into a trans, as if you have achieved nirvana and are ready to ascend to a final abode.

Excitement is a drug so powerful that even morphine seems like an overrate artisanal water. The whirlwind of thoughts, comotion of emotions and beguilement of desires, that it entrails are like the ubiquitous longing of a chronic methhead. You start contemplating the improbable; imploring to elements to incite time dilation. So, that you can have both the physical and the metaphysical experiences at once.

Though it is hard to comprehend or possibly explain such longings. Perhaps our inner child could explain it as we adults are overly-cautious and intensely disturbed about the directions of our own thrills. Unfortunately and Ironically, the baroque explanations pulled from deepest childhood memories, are so odd to ourselves, that we unwittingly try to repress them.

Enthusiasms arising from excitement is so overwhelming that we thwart for in its obviation. This may sound odd but this enthusiasm is in fact motivated by a search for extrication of truth and eloquence. It not only paints a utopian perspective of things about to unfold but, also provides solutions to the thing we fear; making us feel more at ease, more relaxed and true to ourselves.

Ode to Man

Ode to man
The king is as much a man,
As is a puny and destitute beggar.

A munificent philanthropist is as much a man,
As is an avaricious mercenary or an indefatigable conscript.

It is man who constructs temples, so is the man who ordains monks or monarch
It is man who construes philosophy, as is he, who defiles its austerity.

A vicious slayer is, as much a man,
As is a magnanimous savior.

It is man who exploits another, so is the man who liberates them
It is man who fumbles for help, so is he, who comes to his aid.

From a frivolous loon to a coward renegade,
From a chivalrous king to a gallant knight

It is man who rules a million heart, so is him who ruins a lone one
It is him who he yearns for, so is him who he despises
It is man who professes off worthiness, so is he who confesses of worthlessness.
It is man who is GOOD, so is he who is EVIL

Are religious people inferior life forms compared to enlightened atheists?

Atheists don’t boast superiority nor they profess of being the enlightened one and Religion plays little to no role in determining superiority nor does it affects enlightenment.

Superiority is a simply a concept made-up by narcissists with a god complex. Superiority doesn’t imply enlightenment not does enlightenment imply superiority, men are not created equal they “were” equal. It’s the inner moral compass that guides you to enlightenment, not your religion or the lack of it.

History has numerous examples where men claimed they were superior to others because of their religious beliefs or the superiority of their religion. But just look, what these superiors have done. From the ulama’s of Islam, who use jihad as a tool to commit murders in the name of God; to the protectors of the faith of the Christ with their of crusades and franchise of conversion; or the god-men of Hinduism with their megalomaniac egos. These over glorified fascist and fanatics have twisted and drained the entirety of Morales and aura of enlightenment from their own faiths.

Just because, you have a different belief system which you consider to be an epitome of enlightenment or a social order that you remark as civilized, doesn’t necessarily makes you superior or enlightened.

Think about it, the Spanish conquistadores present them themselves as gods to the Mayans and Incas, proclaiming to be enlightened and superior to their ancient ways. But these enlightened supremacists destroyed a much superior society. I agree they were barbarians but shouldn’t these enlightened gods have instead helped them overcome that one thing. Or weren’t these enlightened beings as barbaric as them, for slaughtering millions in the name of God.

In fact, modern educated society is also not different in that regard. Men like Jim Jones, Shoko Asahara, Bhindranwale, Joseph Koney, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and much more developed a cult around them which ultimately leads to the death of humanity itself. Hitler professed of Aryan supremacy and look what he did with that supremacy. And only an egomaniac narcissist would think that some people are superior to others. Africans were said to be an inferior race but science ultimately proved that in fact, they are the real forefathers of humans race on earth.

So you see enlightenment and superiority are worlds apart. An enlightened society will never deal with a relative concept like superiority.

Buddha was enlightened but we turned him into a religious figure and polluted his teachings. Krishan was enlightened but he is was promoted to the status of a god, Christ was enlightened and still, millions were slaughtered for his glory, Mohammad was enlightened but we killed his ideology for a ransom called heaven.

What is Forgiveness?

When we talk about forgiveness it is very important for all of us . When you don’t forgive someone, you are not hurting your beliefs, you are not hurting the company that did you wrong, you are hurting yourself. 

In fact, Forgiveness is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. Everyone should have the ability to forgive. Learning to forgive doesn’t mean you’ll never stand up for yourself, it doesn’t mean you’ll let others hurt you. You are simply telling them how you feel. Forgiveness is, one of the secrets for a long and fruitful life. Forgiveness is not devine it’s simply a feeling that helps you tap into the inner bliss of universal positivity.

GOD, a product by humans

If god created men in his own image, I have no interest in meeting him

Humans, A species that has the misguided pride of being the only sentient beings in the known universe. In reality, they are the worst scavengers this universe will ever see. Their tendency to destroy anything or everything that is beautiful has no match, except for black holes maybe. Just Look the world around you, can you see a single ounce of beauty as it was meant to be. Their stupidity and greed knows no limit. They fight like rabid dogs over most ridiculous and unreal issues. They plunder and rape morality and sanity over unworthy buffoons and idols while seeking justice in rubbish and trashy works of fiction. And the saddest part is; to ease their burden of guilt; they have crafted a very clever workaround.

Humans with their infinite imagination, have concocted an omnipotent and omnipresent fictional character called “GOD” packaged in a sturdy box called religion. So, that they can easily pass their baton of guilt and burden of forgiveness on to him. They even added a tag line to this concoction for added spectacle, “To err is human; to forgive is divine.”

But the irony in this is, during this extravaganza endeavor they grossly overlooked a fact. The fact that, if this omnipresent and omniscient being, was supposed to be the creator of them in his own true image. Then doesn’t the tag line, in turn, implies that he himself was flawed. Doesn’t it render the whole concept of a great almighty creator as nefarious and illogical?

Just think about it,
Would you want your best creation to be inherently flawed?
Would you instill qualities in them that are deemed unworthy and flawed?
Or,
Why would you create greed, envy, wrath, sloth, gluttony, lust and pride?
If, they are the very flaws you want to rinse out, even from yourself.

Yet, interestingly enough these feeble minded dim wits have an explanation for it. A grossly oversimplified yet, misleading one. An explanation which itself begs the questions. If, he was so angry that he condemned his own creation to these sins then wasn’t he himself committing the sin of wrath and pride.

Alas! if, this frenzy stopped here. These so called, “Sentients” even crafted convoluted terms and conditions outlining their self-justifying and self-validating theories, to go along with their scam of a product. A sort of disclaimer which basically states that, even if they commit any one of the deadly sins, they are not to be blamed, as it’s not them, but some higher power conspiring against them and their beloved product called “Religion”. In fact, they even stamped this fraudulent claim as bigotry. Though this is both foolish and blind prejudice. Still, in the due time, it has transmuted into a real hard fact.

If only, they could experience, what actual bigotry is? Perhaps then, they could see the ugliness of this deceptive product.If only, these liars could somehow irrevocably understand that sins are not the real problem, but they themselves are.The hard and undeniable truth is, they indeed opened the Pandora’s box with this radical product of theirs. And are now playing the devil’s advocate themselves.

But, what bothers me the most is,
Their oblivious dependence on gods, prophets or messiahs.
Their reliance and faith in the facts stated in dithered and fictional works of literature which even a buffoon could tell were pure garbage.

Their capacity to inflict pain and brainwash entire generations into a hoax of a product in fancy packing.Their confusing, yet methodical approach to conform feeble minded brethren to their false beliefs and misguided morality.

I believe, it’s about time that this defective and expired product was pulled off the shelves and incinerated into oblivion from which it emanated in the first place. If this plagued product is allowed to run amok as it has been for millennia, then we are sure to face an armageddon in-spite of our prowess in scientific or technological avenues. Even though human logic and imagination knows, no rival but, it definitely faces rivalry from this creation of theirs.

A Butterfly from a Cocoon but with a Difference

The design of nature is unique in a way that it constantly challenges its own convention every time. This attribute of nature is the one that drives the living kingdom to be progressive, fondly termed as evolution by great minds. The intent of Human Library is no different from that of this inherent intent of nature. Also, nature does not easily endorse longevity unless a certain level of struggle is shown.


A Butterfly is often seen as a thing of beauty, nonetheless, the struggle to break open the cocoon and the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly are no less meaningful. Ankit Agarwal, a human book, is a living soul and a thoughtful individual who never hesitates to question stereotypes and who breaks stereotypes with ease.Unfortunately, the Mother Nature has other counter plans. He is diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, a…

What is Altruism ?

Image result for Altruism

Altruism is not for those who are inherently perfect nor is it for those trying to be perfect. Altruism is for those who show disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of other or for those who believe in doing the selfless deed without ranting about it to the entire world. It is all about being magnanimous, showing benevolence and performing self-sacrifice.

But tell me, have you ever found a deed that is selfless or magnanimous. It doesn’t matter whether you are a saint or an ordinary man. Some way or other your altruistic instincts are always fed by the hunger for glory or fame. Whether consciously or unconsciously, it is this thirst for glory and fame that is steering you towards generosity and bounteousness.

In fact, the entire premise of altruism is fueled by the insecurities and paranoia instilled by religion over the centuries. Take away the premise of heavenly adobe or nirvana and poof goes the concept into the thin air. Even Atheist, heathens and agnostics are no better than theist or deist. The atheists may not believe in God or religion but they sure do believe in making a name for themselves in history.

Just think about it, If people donate for the construction of churches, temples or mosque they are glorified for generosity and poise. But wouldn’t it would have been same if they just burnt that money on a pyre. There are far more important issues in this world than making a glorified hall for someone whose very existing is questionable.

This society condemns philanthropy by labeling it as a means to rinse one’s sin. But why the heck does it forgets to look at a mirror when it does the same every day. You or me paying a beggar is not altruism at the very best it’s egotism.

People act for many reasons; but for whom, or what, they act or should act is immaterial. No individual can ever act only according to his or her own interests without regard for others nor can they ever truly act for others in complete disregard for his or her own interests.

In fact, a person’s acts are determined by prior events; essentially taking away the concept of choice. But as it turns out in the grand scheme of things, a person obviously possesses some control over his or her next action. So, morally speaking, the ideals of altruism or egotism or egoism are illogical. One should pursue their own interests but without disregard to others’ interest and to an extent which is praiseworthy when compared to self-regarding acts.

The definitions in case you were wondering:
Heathens: Those who don’t adhere to a widely held religion (pagans)
Theist: believes in God but does not believe in the doctrine of the Trinity, nor in a divine revelation
Deist: believes in God but does not believe in his superintendence and government, not in the doctrine of the trinity or divine revelation.
Agnostic: believes only what is knowable.
