I had posted this on my now defunct second blog. I wish to keep this on record and so am copy pasting it here.
I love to spend time with young people. They stimulate my thinking process.
I recently had the opportunity to discuss some economic problems that face India with a young friend Sunil, and after I came home, I exchanged these messages with him.
YT : A book I strongly recommend is Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley
Sunil: I will try and get hold of that. Thanks. Have you read the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins?
YT : Yes. Sad.
YT : Matt Ridley incidentally is a gr8 admirer of Dawkins.
YT : Sunil: You are not?
YT : I am but I am not an atheist. I am not a believer nor agnostic. Figure that one.
Sunil : Ah, you are God!
YT : ☺
Sunil and I met again after a few days and discussed this discussion. I had to explain to Sunil that not only was I God, he was too.
He was flabbergasted and I had to explain to him the philosophy of Tat Twam Asi and Aham Brahmasmi.
