India can only be governed and kept together by the persuasive use of authority and not by force. Both the BJP and the AAP need to keep this in mind: It's dangerous to play with history; it's still more dangerous not to learn from it.

I'm grateful that dog was there with me that day. I don't know if he was the catalyst or spark that led me to my higher self-awareness, or if he just happened to be there at the "right" time. All I know is that that that early morning at Juhu Beach was a momentous occasion for me.

Think about when you've fallen in love in your life or the first time you held your newborn child in your arms. The colors looked brighter, the sounds were clearer, and it felt like your heart was going to burst with love and joy.

It is not hard to imagine a world that is "better." But, what does "better" mean? By "better," I mean an abundant, well and enlightened world that enhances life -- a world where love, compassion, generosity, equitability and the creation of beauty are the pursuit of humankind.

But heros are all just people. They get out of bed every morning and put on their pants, skirts and saris like everyone else. Gandhi and King had a thing for the ladies and my mom doesn't always recycle properly.
