The most simple argument against dualism (and in turn identity) is how one explains relationship if things are … Continue reading Identity and Dualism

My heart is with Brussels ❤️ So, let’s start by saying ‘Bastards!’ to terrorists. Brussels has now been hit at the Metro and Airport.

The way Indian parents deal with their children is very different from how a lot of other parents do so. There’s a reason why Indian kids think twice or thrice or a hundred times before doing shit. Because they know that if their parents find out about it, they’re fucked. Indian parents literally laugh at the idea of a “timeout” or “the stand within … Continue reading Indian parents – strict and discipline~!!
FEAR: A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
