“Naoroji: Pioneer of Indian Nationalism” Review: Portrait of an Independent Mind

All but forgotten, its doors are rarely opened; the once prominent Zoroastrians have all but disappeared from Zanzibar. Their fire temple, now falling to ruin, was once a place where worshippers gathered to celebrate their god, Ahura Mazda (Wise Lord), and where weddings were held and people buried.

Knock jokes as we know them today emerged around 1936, and soon became a veritable craze: they were shared on the radio, printed in newspapers, used by businesses in ads, and incorporated into songs. Knock-knock joke contests were staged, and a few knock-knock joke clubs were even formed. But as quickly as this genre of humor rose to prominence, it was just as quickly, well, knocked by critics who found the setup ...

Think a Thought You’ve Never Thought of Before

While you can regard thoughts as arising from within you, it’s interesting to view thoughts as transmissions that come to you, like waves of energy that create eddies within your consciousness. Perhaps consciousness is like an antenna that can tune into different frequencies of thoughts and translate them into forms you can perceive and understand. With this model it makes little sense to feel responsible for the thoughts you perceive because those thoughts aren’t really coming from within yo...

Happy Mother’s Day

She was 59 and I was 29. It was an extremely tough time for our family, and the hardest and most devastating moments of my life. Two decades later, and time does not heal the wounds that are created when you lose a parent you were very close to. But time does help you process your feelings, manage your emotions, and give y...
