We have talked about philosophers and their various philosophies about god, purpose and even death. Now, I wish to move onto the second phase of these blogs where I want to elaborate more on the unconventional philosophies and theories that I have my inclination towards. I know that the blogs from now on might haveContinue reading “Our Journey ahead”
Now, the 21st century has its own perceptions of death.
