Nasadiya Sukta, is concerned with the Cosmos and the origins of the Universe and begins thus:
Though not so profound, I face my own questions too.
I have learnt the how of various things thanks to the westernized education that I received in India as a student & the western corporate form of business that I have been exposed to as a worker. But not the why.
I guess the answer lies for me in my own heritage - the Indian mythologies & philosophies and the traditional approaches to science, spirituality & society in India that is based more on introspection than skepticism. I want to arm myself with both the Western skepticism and the Indian introspection to figure out the whys of my world, if not the world.
And thus I chose the first two words of the Nasadiya Sukta (from which it derives its name) - ná ásat, "not the non-existent" - as the immediate aspect that I wanted to focus on, the realm of the non-existent can come later. And thus the name of my first personal domain on the internet (that I have not had for more than a decade now).
While I go about setting up my website, please excuse its plebeian look and do feel free to read my thoughts on my SFH Blog.
Who am I? That's a very profound philosophical question at one level. The answer to which I have not yet found. But considering the question in its ordinary perspective, let me attempt. This too is difficult since its trying to hit a moving target. I am constantly innovating myself. May be thats me?
Let me try to tell about myself in a manner that could interest you (I do hope). I am a geek who tries to keep abreast of the latest scientific & technological advancements as much as possible (theres far too much). I am thinker who tries to find uses for all the new findings & inventions. I am a problem solver who tries to think holistically & laterally. I am an iconoclast in the sense that I do not fear going down the untrodden path or even creating my own. I am a tinkerer in the sense that I try to do mash ups of concepts from across various fields to achieve a purpose. I am connector who likes to meet & greet new people from various backgrounds with various fields of interest and then make connections among them. I share whatever I learn. I curate everything that interests me.
