    I am thinking about whether by being good we can survive here on this earth. Darwin said about survival of the fittest and if we are strong enough we can survive and of course we have to fight and win and if we lose we will go extinct and to survive man must have a gigantically string and muscular physical structure, speaking primitively, today the circumstance is little different and people of course have to be more cunning and if you are good hearted you will not win and in business you have to do treachery and perfidy. If you are honest you will not make millions and you can be moderately rich but not much

    This is the idea evolving in my mind today

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    Time to go bed. Been trying to keep myself busy so that I didn't end up getting up in the middle of the night but don't think can keep my eyes open anylonger. Good thing I can type without looking at the keyboard!

    Today so many thoughts occurred to me. I am a tutor of banking too and today I had a class in the morning on banking and I saw rows of boys sitting before my eyes with their very glum and bleak for they are unsure about there future in Nepal. You know there is a prolonged political deadlock in this country with government changing and camouflaging their ideas from time to time. I know this is not a political discussion forum or economics forum but literature is a little bit related to economics and politics in point of fact. I feel saddened by their apathy to what I teach them. They joined in the class of banking just because they are told by their elders or this is just a fashion in the city but they are insecure about their future here for Nepal is a very poor country and even if Nepal is a resources –rich country and it has lots of virgin lands and it is not an overpopulated country like India and China and the main problem facing the country now is the long political stalemate and unfortunately never ever we have a government that worked in the interest of its people . These thoughts occupied me today

    Today I visited a friend from high school days. It was nice but it bought back sad memories of my recent fued with a friend. I'm still waiting for her to ring me. So very sad...

    George Orwell must be the most popular author on the forums. The authors section is just filled with threads concerning 1984.
