A writer/author by hobby and a former Indian Diplomat. I am 55 years and a Graduate in Political Science Honors from Sri Venkateswara College, Delhi University as also a Post Graduate in Sociology from Annamalai University. I am the Great Grandson of Late Mr. M.S. Purnalingam Pillai, BA, LT, Emeritus Professor of English, Bishop Heber College, Trichinopoly who authored 27 works in English including Madras University Papers on Shakespeare’s Plays, Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare, Stories from Goldsmith, Socretes and Plato and Evolutional Ethics, Julius Caesar, Othello – with introduction and full notes, Digest of Roman Law, The Ten Tamil Saints, History of England, etc. and 16 works in Tamil including Surapadman, Avvai Kural, Seyyul Kovai, Viveka Vilakkam, Panniru Penmanigal, Kathai and Karpanai (Story & Dream), Navaraathri Lectures, Kamatchi, Tamil Essays or Sitrurais, etc. I am interested in writing on topics of varied interests and for the time being I keep Politics and Religion out of my purview. My recent book titled ‘Nature…Human Nature…Animal Instinct’ published by M/s BlueRoseONE Publishers is available in Print and e-Book formats in various Book Stores and in Online Platforms such as Amazon & Flipkart as also in Amazon global platform and various other global publishers. The habit of writing articles started way back from 1986 when write-ups were submitted for publication initially in ‘Monday Diary’ column of Indian Express Newspaper and then other National-level newspapers.

I wish to achieve a remarkable success in the field of writing and publication of various Articles, Write-ups and Books solely penned by me. Writing is my passion and my view is that if one has come to this world, one should contribute some good thoughts for the benefit of others. I love nature watching and in fact many of my articles find a mention about the behavior of various flora and fauna and revolve around the environment. I also keep thinking and writing about celestial bodies and their movement and try to write something about the mysteries surrounding them about which our knowledge is too meagre.

As everyone is aware, millions of species are in existence in our Planet Earth – both overland and deep inside the Oceans – and many more might be existing yet to be discovered deep inside the Sea. Recently it came to news that there are some life forms even deep inside the Antarctic glaziers. Has anyone at any time wondered from where these creatures and beings come from? Be it small insects that emerge after heavy rain and vanish the next day and even its corpus is hardly to be found and its life being only for a few hours; similar is the case with many such other flies, insects and minuscule living creatures, which live only for some small fraction of time. For example, if we keep some pulses, grams or cereals in a container and leave it closed or open without presence of any insects in it, but after some days, some kind of insect is sure to emerge from the contents in the container.

Similarly, it is said, insects are found even inside a boulder or big rocks. Where has the sperm for the production of such insect(s) come from? Who has given birth to them, from where have they emerged, what is the purpose of such life forms, what is their life term? They are neither a reproduction out of bisexual mating nor a result of unisexual activity. If at all they have come on their own, there is sure to be an essence or a cell or some such life-generating substance that has created them. If insects could be found inside a rock, it shows that it is a myth that oxygen and water are a pre-requisite for life to emerge. It can then well be said that it is not that for creation of any life form, oxygen and water are a pre-requisite but even some other things other than those which also matters.  Our planet is full of life emerging from water, soil, stone, ice and what not and it can be said that just like universe emerged from nothing, similarly life forms in our planet are also emerging from nothing. That’s the reason our Planet is called a ‘Living Planet’.

Even if we leave it for the time being not capable of understanding the phenomena of life, as the mystery is similar to the case of the mystery shrouding the creation of this vast Universe with its many celestial bodies, have we wondered why so many beings are in existence, what is the purpose of the birth of many beings, what is the purpose of its vanishing or dying after a stipulated period of time, where does a being or for that matter the Soul go after the death, etc. etc. Research is on and on but with no fruitful result and hardly any result might be achieved about this great secret of Nature, be any number of generations of researchers come and go.

If we talk about the concept of re-birth, there are different beliefs and theories. If some believe in reincarnation it is because their scriptures say so. The soul characterizes the essence of life, it is immortal and wears on one’s mortal body and consciousness. Like Lord Krishna had propagated in the Bhagwad Gita, the Holy book of the Hindus, that Soul (Aatma) just migrates from one body to another after death of a living body just like one changing one’s clothes. The immortal Aatma for that matter has no beginning or end – that is, no birth, no death. Even about the concept of Aatma, it is all again our belief and one can rely on those beliefs with some form of certainty, going by the differences in one’s birth form – be it being born in a royal family or a destitute, being born intact or with some handicap, being born as a human or some other species in one’s future births or, even by seeing an infant or a small child leaving this world after spending little time in this world, et al, which all seem to be the outcome of one’s deeds or in fact misdeeds in previous births to which one enters this world to pay the penance for a short period or for longer period of time.

Apparently, if one has committed little crime, he is born for a short life, like the life of an ant, housefly, etc. never knowing when they are born and when they die, with little sufferings or if one has committed a big crime in previous birth(s), one lives a long life full of sufferings waiting for the death to come. All said and done, these are some secrets of life and nature which we, the Humans, only are capable of giving a thought or at least make efforts to ponder over the same, unlike other beings on this Planet and if possible try to do only good deeds and if not possible at least do not harm anyone, thereby try to escape from this vicious cycle of births and re-births and attain Moksha.
