The combi-pack

I bought a set of dictionary and encyclopedia a few days ago and laid my hands on the latter on Saturday, the day we suffered an epic 14 hrs without electricity. An offline reference may seem like an anachronism in the 21 century prima facie, and for a few hours after the purchase I was trying hard to convince myself of having made the right decision.


It was vindicated when I flipped through the pages and rediscovered the vintage  joy of reading a glossy reference. What an experience it the hell out of HTML pages whose chief claim-to-fame must be hyperlinks.


Flipping through pages remains sexy as ever.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
