God???

Then why call him God?

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.

Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.

Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?

Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

— Epicurus, philosopher (c. 341-270 BCE)



Why Should God Dispose, when Man Proposes?

He could have done anything he wanted since He is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent??

But then WHY?

because he is a product of human imagination. Period!

Grey - An impromptu poem

Grey
I have tasted the forbidden Fruit,
I See across the spectrum now
I know the black from the white
I am Grey and Proud of it.

I am not pure at heart
I am both Saint & Sinner
I sing at the choir and at the bar
I m Grey and Proud of it.

I am not a Knight in Shining Armour
I try to scrape off the rust now & then
I have won & broken many a heart
I am Grey and Proud of it.

I love both the Straight & the queer
I am nice if you are nice
I prefer the anti before the hero
I m Grey and Proud of it.

I bawl at emotional videos
I bitch about my friends behind their back
I love puppies & kick trolls in their asses
I am Grey and Proud of it.

Burning Bridges - A Lyric from the heart

Burning Bridges

Though we took vows for until our last breath,
We had so drifted apart like embers in the fire
We cant stand the sight of each other
We are strangers in a strange world

Oh babe, we have burnt our bridges
There's no going back
Oh Babe, We have burnt our bridges
Now you are just a stranger to me

I do remember the love we shared
But that has gone away like wisps in the wind
We have tried our very best to stick
We found that we repel each other

Oh Babe, we have burnt our bridges
Now there's no going back
Oh Babe, We have burnt our bridges
Now you are just a stranger to me

We missed our chance to catch the train,
We have to move out on different paths
We proved that familiarity breeds contempt
We are the makers of our own disasters

Oh Babe, we have burnt our bridges
Now there's no going back
Oh Babe, We have burnt our bridges
Now you are just a stranger to me


....... still to come/contd.

है ये कैसी डग…

Lead a frugal Life, Dude! Have no fear!!"Possessions are burdens. What you have can always be taken away, so wealth breeds fear." - Jacen Solo

Simply say…Death is the end"What begins, ends.
What is born, dies.
All that is made can be un-made.
Dark has no meaning without light,
And for all living things
there is the final
silence.

Uueg Tching or the Quotes from the Fictitious worlds

“Starve the centre and you reap Anarchy. Feed the Centre and you reap Tyranny. The problem is obvious to every man. A solution has been revealed to No Man”
"There are three ways to defeat your enemy. The first, and most obvious, is to better him in a trial of force. The best way is to have him destroy himself; few enemies are so obliging. The middle way is to destroy your enemy from within. Judicious application of the middle way shall make your blows more effective if you later take the way of force. From the middle way it is also possible to push your enemy onto the path of self-destruction."
"Even the greatest of trees can rot from within, but the vigilant gardener keeps attentive to the signs of decay. The Gardener is not afraid to cut through the polished skin to tear away a malignant heart, to save the life of that tree. Those who seek shade under that tree would best remember the work of that gardener."
