FFT -2 | Religion - a minefield

Does religion provide solace to a fatalist? Are you a believer only if wear your religion on your sleeve? Do you need religion to sustain as a human race? does religion give you freedom or does it put you in fetters? Is religion meant to make you thin skinned to criticism from other religious sects?

Religion is what you make of your belief .. you are entitled to believe what you want and not thrust your opinions and beliefs on another..For a religious extremist, slightest of insinuation is like a ticking is indeed a Minefield.

Is religion the reason that turns the world on its head? when did mankind first feel the need for a a religion.. ? Did it give man an identity and a cause to defend? Did the religious rituals help create a demand vs supply scenario that was the key to the growth of economy?

If religion is a man-concocted  concept why take it seriously..

FFT - Food for thought 1

How do you define resilience?

When your sieve like memory fails to acknowledge the event ever happened , you dust off and carry on with life as thought the event was just a minor aberration from your otherwise mundane existence?
When you have the memory of the event etched in your collective minds and still carry on with hope of a safer tomorrow, leaving the dire task of keeping the hope alive in someone else's hands?

How do you define Mumbai?
