Aliens on the Moon?

This is another one of the posts that goes beyond the theme of my website. ET, aliens, supernatural, and paranormal. Ever since I was in 5th grade, I have read enormous amounts of material on topics ranging from Black magic (weird?), Egyptian Spells, UFOs and Ghosts to say the least. I remember reading a news…

Overseas Citizenship of India

Although my site has nothing to do with Politics or Diplomacy, I wanted to share some information about the so-called Dual Citizenship or Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI), which is available to Indians living abroad. Of course there are certain criteria that have to be met by the applicant(s). Initially I received some overwhelmingly intimidating…

The Original Hungarian song was written (translated) in English by two different people, Sam Lewis and Desmond Carter….

Gloomy Sunday–popularly known as the “Suicide Song”. I remember reading about it in an “Unsolved Mysteries” books when I was about 14 years old. I had forgotten about it in all these years until someone I know sent me the song recently. It was written by Rezso Seress, a Hungarian songwriter, in 1933. The crushing…

Human Beings

I remember reading this article back in 2004 and it kept me disturbed for a long time. I even contacted the Editor asking of ways to help out, but never got a response. I found that email in my archives this morning and it just brought some things back. The Tribune is Haryana/Punjab’s Newspaper in…
