Babri Masjid! The verdict is coming

It seems like we will have the court verdict on Babri Masjid land dispute on 30th Sep 2010! Do we really want to know what was there? And how much back in time can we go? What if there was a temple earlier? What was there before that temple? What if it was the birth place of lord Ram, what was there before Ram was born? This is endless! We cannot go back and change the history! No matter how wrong or bad it was! What’s done is already done! Britain has taken a lot of stuff from India during their period; can we ask them to return everything they have taken? It’s like you brought a land, build a nice house for yourself, and then all of a sudden, someone comes and asks you to vacate this house, as his ancestors were living there 200 years ago! WTF! And that’s not all; he will kill you and your family, distance relatives as well, if you don’t give him the house! This is ridiculous! I fail to understand why court took so many years! And I fail to understand why our govt allowed 6th Dec 1992 to happen at all!

Big Bang or Firecracker?

I was watching a show on Discovery Channel, about our Universe and its origin by Big Bang. It was detected that after the Big Bang, our universe was created and it still is expanding. But what was there in that space before the Big Bang? And also, what is beyond our universe? What is there where our universe is expanding? There are so many unanswered questions; I don’t think our science is mature in Astronomy. But not sure why people like Stephen Hawkins proclaim that its gravity which has created this universe, and not God! It’s not that being a religious person, I am hurt by this statement. I do believe in God, and in Science. But I do know the limitation of both! Science can give you many reasons for things happening around you, but cannot answer all your questions! Science cannot help you in your personal problems, neither can God, but when you pray to God, you get a strong positive energy in yourself. This positive energy is faith, and believes that someone is going to take care of things! Again, this positive energy may not be able to help you in all situations, but it does help in many, where you need to do some effort! Well, this is not my debate, that universe was originated by a Big Bang on its own or someone / something created it! So, I will leave science to continue their study and discoveries!

Happiness

What is happiness? Can we measure happiness? Is there a mathematical formula which can be used to define happiness? How can one person be happy in a situation and another is not in the exact same situation? If its hot summer, a rich person can only be happy if the AC is working, a middle class person (who can’t afford AC) wants fan to be happy, a poor fella who can’t even afford fan, will be happy if there is a wind! So, the meaning of happiness differs from person to person! And this example does not mean that money brings more comfort which brings happiness, as money is not always responsible for happiness. You can have a person without money, still happy and enjoying his life! Similarly, another person with lots of money, but not happy! So, what is happiness?
