* Everybody knows everything. * Nobody ever says anything except about himself or herself. * Desperation is the source of all evil. * Always go with the flow but empower yourself to change its course where necessary. * Nothing big can be done in secret. * Man without woman, and woman without man, is only half a human being. This is the only way to ensure love and equality. * It’s always a ghost that possesses a human being. A human being has never been known to possess a ghost. * Have at least three reasons for choosing or doing anything important. It’s called moral certainty, as opposed to mere logical certainty. * Never flinch. * We are all in the same team here. Give love and respect to all by default, and help them rectify their mistakes rather than hate them for it. Published in Daily Times, July 12th 2018.
