“Often we have heard of instances where humans have summoned SUPERHUMAN abilities, endurance, and strength when they were faced with an existential threat. We wonder in AWE when even the weakest of beings did something extraordinary in these situations. However, these were precisely the times when the subconscious took over and vaulted them over the wall of mediocrity and the ordinary and made them super-beings. So why wait for only existential threats to bring out the superhuman in U??? Why can't U harness this power even in Ur day2day routine actions and rise above the mundane by BEING IN THE NOW!!!”

Semmanthaka by Syd K.
“How U become an EFFECTIVE fighter.. The answer here is BY BEING IN THE NOW and tuning in completely to Ur subconscious. Our subconscious is HYPER-PRESENT, always in the moment, and sees what our eyes cannot, hears what our ears cannot, remembers even the faintest and minutest of details which our brains cannot...It is OMNIPRESENT in the sense that it can even overlap and sense the mind of Ur opponent.. Tap into it and U will become lethal... The block will be there IN PLACE even b4 Ur opponent lands his move... Nothing can break/penetrate Ur defenses then.. It is like having a surreal and scary sense of instinct and anticipation....like the legendary Lee did. His opponents often credited him with this fearsome superhuman sense of anticipation.. he read their minds and knew their moves even before they made them and no matter what they did and how ultra skilled they were, they could not breach his defenses, could not connect that knockout punch and were left frustrated.... it was as if ...more Syd K.

“If anyone wants to know about Islam, one should judge Islam by Prophet’s life and his teachings.”
Swami Lakshmi Shankarachaarya

“It is of cardinal importance to quarantine the Prophet from any discussions concerning Islamist terror. Prophet's teachings have nothing to do with what we see today in the likes of the ISIS. In fact, if Mohammad saheb were to be alive today, he would have STRONGLY opposed terror in all forms.”
Dr Syd K

“If the likes of the ISIS were to reform and bring tolerance and coexistence into their core ideology,, then the world would witness one of the greatest philosophies of humanity shining in its true light.”
Dr Syd K

“What is it about true love and true patriotism that whenever one indulges in any of these, the entire world becomes their enemy!!”
