5 Reasons We Give Up (And Ways to Find Motivation!)

Motivation, simply defined, is the purpose behind an action. Contemporary society’s definition of motivation, however, is closely tied to work. In a world as cut-throat as ours, money is a major factor and most of the time our life is shaped around the commodity rather than the other way around. Of course we go to work for money and the people you meet can be … Continue reading 5 Reasons We Give Up (And Ways to Find Motivation!)

Why Person Of Interest is the best show I’ve ever seen

Now, let me preface this by expressing how inexperienced I am with TV shows and television in general. I haven’t really seen a TV show since House MD a few years ago, so yes, I haven’t seen GoT, the Walking Dead, Narcos, Thirteen Reasons Why, Dynasty and the plethora of other shows that seem to be ruffling everyone’s feathers lately. What I do know, however, … Continue reading Why Person Of Interest is the best show I’ve ever seen

Humility, Altruism and Heroism | Hri-Write

In our very own right, we are all heroes. Popular culture loves to place emphasis on superheroes whose powers are all out of the realm of possibility, such as the ability to fly, run faster than light, be incredibly strong and so on. One key realization that is often exempted from the idea of heroism is that even with our physical limitations, we are heroic … Continue reading Humility, Altruism and Heroism | Hri-Write

Higher Consciousness | Hri-Write

The human mind has been the subject of study even before the scientific method and modern technology existed. Philosophers, sages, and ascetics have all in the past tried to understand the psyche of the human animal in unique and interesting ways. The phrase “higher consciousness” is used to express an elusive and difficult to attain mental state, distinct from the ‘lower’, more primitive mind. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Higher Consciousness | Hri-Write

High School to University

I’m sure every single high school senior that is reading this right now has spent some time in the recent past pondering and feeling nostalgic about the years of schooling, times spent with their friends, the jokes about teachers and literally the whole deal that came with the baggage of being a student. I know this because right now, I’m in that situation. It’s an … Continue reading High School to University

Net Neutrality and India | Hri-Write

After the US decided to scrap open and free internet policies last week, the world is feeling the heat. Net Neutrality, as the name implies, is a framework for the internet which is based on the accessible and free use of the internet. Former US President Barack Obama had a supportive stance towards Net Neutrality from the onset of his presidential campaign in 2007, pledging … Continue reading Net Neutrality and India | Hri-Write

Solitude, Melancholy and Calm | Hri-Write

 When prompted to answer where we’d be happiest, we always think of places filled with people, family or friends, at home or at a party. Maybe then, defining what ‘happy places’ mean to us misses out on less publicised and distinguished places. Whether it is the open road, under the billions of stars that so faintly glow overhead or on a bench from where you … Continue reading Solitude, Melancholy and Calm | Hri-Write

The Voyager Missions & the Golden Records | Hri-Write

In the summer of 1977, NASA launched an ambitious and far-reaching pair of deep space satellites that were destined to become humanity’s most distant messengers. Meet Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, twin satellites whose sole purpose is to traverse the boundaries of our solar system and interstellar space. The Voyager twins are exploring where nothing from Earth has ever gone before: into the cold expanses … Continue reading The Voyager Missions & the Golden Records | Hri-Write

How to start your own blog

I write this on the day of officially migrating my blog to WordPress after its two-year tenure on Google Blogger, where it first reached 32000 pageviews. This is truly a feat that I could have never fathomed, and I feel grateful to have achieved it. As I introspect, I realize that blogging has been a great outlet for me, not only to express my opinion, but … Continue reading How to start your own blog
