In a borderless world, all would be travelers indeed. India is a small borderless world in itself, and Kerala lies at its southernmost tip. The author lives near the lovely Kashmir, but does that make Kerala any less lovely! This book is indeed author’s baby born out of his love of nature.
“Writing books is the closest men ever came to having children.”
In this essay, the author is trying to answer the question: is there a political possibility of existence of a humanist as an anti-national humanist? He wonders if it is possible for humanists like doctors to not become the externalities of nationalism labeling the blood saffron, green, red, black and white (even pacifists die in wars between nations).

Nine Poems Series
Complex are the ways of life.
Difficult it is to describe them in Black & White.
Emotions are many; Words are few.
And those who know them are far and few
Life is a book of poems; And this is mine.
Beautiful or ugly, you determine.
The Love of the abstract, the animate & the inanimate glitter in my dreams;
I am the agent of Love, and my contract is to hack your dreams;
Enjoy the Love in this book of poem, where my dreams shall date your dreams!

Flare: Opinions (Law, Human Rights and Politics)
Opinions are like flare, which can turn either way: they can spread like wild-fire or encapsulate themselves within the bounds of personal integrity, and thus illuminate.

What is Philosophy? Is it the exclusive domain of those who dream in abstract? Or is it the manifestation of the struggle of those who practice in material?

But, fortunately, he has found some kind-hearted people, who have given him their valuable feedback. This book reproduces those articles that have received positive feedback.
