All people experience pain and suffering, illness and death, depression and anxiety, fear and worry, hunger and thirst, failures and successes, and love and happiness. Why don’t human beings work together to alleviate the sufferings and pain of each other rather than fight and kill one another? In addressing this issue, the author has looked at India as an example. India is a microcosm of the world with its multiple languages, races, colors and caste system. Why hasn’t a country like India progressed as a developed nation with its vast resources, including the human resource? There are no easy answers to this question. The author explores some facets of Indian life and looks at alternative approaches.
The book attempts to challenge people to grow and develop. It is an invitation to objectivity and verifiable truths that are accessible to all, easy to understand and put into practice. To that end, The Rainbow of Hope opens up a huge reservoir for action. Ultimately, it is action that will transport the nation of India into a just, progressive and developed society in the 21st century where all citizens can live up to their potential without discrimination.
So few countries are like Japan. It is a place where everyone is good at their jobs and where crime is low. It is a place where ancient traditions blend with modern technology and modern lifestyles. Japan continually adapts to the changing of the times but her heart still retains her unique identity. There is a cultural universe inside every Japanese individual that is both logical and mysterious. Imagine a place where communication revolves around silence and ambiguity and you begin to understand something of the Japanese heart.
This book explores those areas as well as what common everyday life is like. It presents insights into history, culture, and current trends, as well as personal experiences by the author. A concise analysis of lifestyles is portrayed of the children, adults and senior citizens. Touching the Heart of Japan presents all these things and more.
“…I have called this collection Certainties and on the first page I quote Werner Heisenberg’s attempt to articulate the fundamental paradox of quantum ‘uncertainty’: that knowledge of location (position) and momentum (direction) are mutually exclusive at least at the quantum level.
I have appropriated this concept to my own experience: If I know where I am, I can never be certain where I am going. And the corollary: If I know where I am going, I cannot be certain where I am. My poems are exceptions. They are certainties because they are ‘fixed’ moments of experience or reflection, identified in words that provide both locale and direction, at least in hindsight.”
—From the Preface of Certainties
