Each of us came to live a finite life, knowing not where it started and where it will end. Yet, we dream beyond our reach.

I have been in a journey, whose destination appears irrelevant – it is the rich experience acquired during the travel that remains important. The advancement in technology made the world smaller, yet, we remain so apart. I do see the space for independent thinking gradually marginalized. The downturn was more visible since the turn of this century; and I expect the trend to continue for many years to come.

Hoping that someday, in not so distant a future, there will be others to change the world for better, let us indulge in exchange of ideas. The least is to make those available in public so that one may exercise the freedom of choice – uncorrupted by filtered information. Even that may have only a finite opportunity due to increasing control over the information gateway!
