Opioid Trials start

We are just 5 percent of the world’s population and consuming more than 70 percent of world’s opioids. Every year 50,000 people die from opioid over dose. Who is to blame? All of us should look the mirror.

Individuals who want opioids even for simple pains like joint ache or headache or for ‘some excitement’.

Politicians who take campaign donations from drug companies

Doctors who over prescribe opioids to make more money

Drug companies who want to make billions by feeding addiction into masses.

But it is time to take responsibility. Other wise thousands of people will die due to opioid epidemic.

Jesus said, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that cometh out of the mouth of God’. Hopefully we derive meaning in life and suffering by following the Word of God than hooking our lives to some narcotics.


Was Gandhi Killer a Patriot?

BJP Bhopal Lok Sabha Candidate Pragya Singh Thakur says “Nathuram Godse was a ‘deshbhakt’, is a ‘deshbhakt’ and will remain a ‘deshbhakt’. People calling him a terrorist should instead look within, such people will be given a befitting reply in these elections.”

Finally this is what we got: politicians calling Nadhuram Godse, the assassin of Gandhi, a deshbhakt or patriot. Kamal Hassan called Godse, the first Hindu terrorist and Pragya Singh responded to that.

As the British were leaving India, Hindus and Muslims were slaughtering each other. The Muslims would always love to live in a country ruled by sharia. The creation of Pakistan was inevitable. Gandhi realized the situation and wanted peace between Hindus and Muslims. This cost him his life.

Looking back we know what Gandhi did was a good thing. Today India is a secular democracy with a vibrant economy. Pakistan became a synonym for terrorism.

Gandhi used to carry a New Testament wherever he went and took the pacifistic teachings of Jesus seriously. Let us hope our generation will follow in his foot steps.
