Written Words Never Die
Historical fiction – India

As long as we can agree that facts are real and provable, I’ll leave “truth” up for interpretation 😉
I like what you say. I’ve not thought of it that way – and learned something new today. Thank you 🙂
I hope and trust that all is well with you and your loved ones,
Even facts can change over time. As an example, DDT was the wonder pesticide widely used to control malaria in the seventies in India. Gradually, its side effects came to be recognised. By 2001, it was mostly banned except for limkited and controlled use.
You’re right I think, Ankur, as I stand here on my flat earth and scratch my head 🙂
We are fed the purported truth or half truth by leaders and business organisation especially the financial institution. Most of the time, we missed the fine prints. So you are right, the truth change to suit the present and future. Only the misled ones got lost.
There is truth and there is truth.
Many governments, including Singapore’s, are passing laws against “fake news”. The implication here is, everything the government puts out is deemed the truth. Now that is a laughing matter if not for the serious consequences to our lives and future.
Yes we are on a journey and ultimately the real truth, though buried under for the present, will be revealed.
Absolutely, Ian, absolutely.
And allow me to quote my favorite poet Omar Khayyam: to know, one too has to go past the veil.
All good wishes,
I liked that quote. Have you read any Kalidasa writings? He wrote in Sanskrit but his works have been translated.
I’ve read some of Kalidasa in my Tamil literature class about 50 years ago (LOL) but not his complete works. You’ve read his works. Well, when you worked in India, you must have completely immersed in their lives and literature.
In the case of Omar Khayyam I’ve read his complete Rubiyat collection several times, and own a copy.
So what is the Roman’s truth?
I’m getting confused. There is too much truth out there.
LOL! Good one, Rab.
The Roman’s Truth is – he believes Truth is a destination. It is but a journey of self-discovery.
And you’re right – there is too much truth out there. One encounters it every day, starting with mainstream media.
