Six word stories

We are all separately, severally, incomplete

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

      • But at least we’re all together in being alone. I guess?

      • Yup, I used to blog a lot on this thought, once upon a time…

      • It’s interesting to me how Buddhism approaches the issue. Basically, we’re all screwed because we form attachments, so only to not feel like crap all the time to act compassionately and try not to think too much about what we’ve grown attached to.

      • That detachment has been a part of many religions at one time or another. At a societal level, monasticism has always held an almost macabre charm; the more severe the seclusion and penance, the holier the doer. At a personal level though it’s quite a different kettle of fish.
        Most Eastern religions have generally followed this trend of “nishkaam karma” – to act without attachment, without personal desire for satiety…
