  • Many beautiful flowers create a wonderful bouquet, A lot of vegetables make a delicious salad. There is beauty, grace and elegance in diversity, in differentness of all components that leads to stronger and better creation when brought together, America is strong because of the awesome unity in diversity of various people with their distinct cultures, races, colors, ethnicities, thoughts and beliefs. Life is wonderful manly because of such unity in diversity, If not for diversity, it would be dull and depressing. It's so remarkable that we all are different, and yet we all are very equal, being united with a common goal and strong love for America, God Bless America!

  • Smartphone is a classic example of disruptive innovation that has quickly disrupted not only the existing markets and value networks, but also our society and her values - by creating millions of Selfie-obsessed narcissistic individuals worldwide. Whether it's good or bad, Selfie-obsession has certainly become epidemic, and no one is immune. Social media, such as FB, Twitter, Instagram etc are totally flooded with selfies of self-obsessed folks from all walks of life, all strata of society, rich and poor, beautiful as well as beauty-challenged, celebrities as much as obscurities, and people of all colors, genders, races, religions and ethnicities etc. While 'Selfies’ may have become a huge trend in social media, many psychiatrists associate the Selfie-obsession to serious mental health issue called "Body Dysmorphic Disorder" that involves dysfunctional narcissism and person’s obsession with her/his looks. Thank you Smartphone! You're truly the most disruptive innovation of 21st Century!

  • Throughout the years, the nation of Canada, as we are aware, became a land of immigration, a home to millions of people from different lands, ethnicities, cultures and religious beliefs. Every new comer that has settled in Canada in the last few hundred years and those who will settle in the future share one common name: "immigrants."

  • Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. In my view, when we think that ours is the only true path to righteousness, we inadvertently force ourselves to judging others with our own yardstick, and walking in the territory of arrogance. Interestingly, the roads that lead to righteousness and arrogance though seem to run in parallel, may intersect each other at several points in our lives. We cannot differentiate between these two roads easily, unless we understand that the road to righteousness is paved with the love of humanity, while the road to arrogance is paved with the love of self. Being tolerant to various beliefs, colors, cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities etc has become extremely important in the world filled with discrimination, prejudice, and supremacy etc. As the French Philosopher Voltaire said it correctly "La tolérance, c'est l'apanage de l'humanité" - i.e. Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. We believe that Tolerance will surely make our world a better place.

  • The various races and ethnicities into which humans have evolved represent a grand experiment in which nature has tested out some of the variations inherent in the human genome. The experiment is not being conducted in our interests - it has no purpose or goal - yet it offers considerable benefits. Instead of there being a single type of human society, there are many, creating a rich diversity of cultures whose more promising features can be adopted and improved on by others.
