Have you noticed the tone of the commercials nowadays? Every second commercial boisterously and noisily assures you that their product or service gives you ‘MORE’. The word ‘ZYADA’  is being hammered at you all day long in one way or the other. It seems to have become the most enticing word in the all languages. If this word… or some… Read more »

Robin Williams passed away yesterday. May he rest in peace! When I learned of it this morning, I was shocked- like millions all over the world. I googled frantically for details. What I learned shocked me even more. I found that Mr. Williams’s high energy at times masked a personal struggle with alcohol and drug addiction, and a representative for… Read more »
