“BY 2013, China is projected to overtake the US as the leading publisher of scientific research.”—
China has 4x as many people, but given their low GDP per capita this is still surprising. One has to wonder if our country has the right incentives in place.
“Generations from now, when historians write about these times, they might note that, in the early decades of the twenty-first century, the United States succeeded in its great and historic mission - it globalized the world. But along the way, they might write, it forgot to globalize itself.”—

“eaenee loeinee dhaekhadhiaa kaethee chal gee || These eyes have seen a great many leave. fareedhaa lokaa(n) aapo aapanee mai aapanee pee ||94|| Fareed, the people have their fate, and I have mine. ||94||”—let people do what they do
it has nothing to do with you
you have your own fate and they have theirs
don’t worry about their lessons, worry about your own
because only their karma will teach them right from wrong
and only when they are hurt will they realize the hurt of others
until then, spread your wings and fly. be yourself and do your own thing.
there is so much in your own path to fix and think about
and above all, so much more you can smile for :). shukar hai.
Andhero ke fareb...!!
Kagaz pe likhkar jhooti kahaniya,
Muskrati hai ye roothi bechainiya,
Gungunati hai ye sooni khamosiya,
Fir yaad aati hai purani madhosiya..
Yehi zindgi hai meri yehi znindgi..
Neend aa jayegi mujhe maana hai maine„
paraye se khwab ko pahchana hai maine..
Bahut door bahut door jaana hai mujhe„
Kya khabar kab laut ke aana hai mujhe..
Yehi zindgi hai meri yehi zindgi..
Tu meri khatir ya mai tere vaaste,
Tere apne raaste mere apne raaste..
Mere haath khali rah gaye roshni baantate..
Ye fareb andhero ke hum nahi the jaante..
Ab bas Yehi zindgi hai meri..
Ab bas yehi zindgi hai meri..
