Beautiful People on CNBC TV18

Watched Jeet Thayil's (Booked shortlisted author of 'NACROPOLIS') with Anuradha Sengupta.

I felt he was spot on in terms of Bombay's decline to Mumbai over the last few decades. But then, that is case with most of other cities - Delhi was jugaad capital, now corruption capital!
- Bangalore has deteriorated from garden city to a concrete city, clean city to a garbage all over ( no mechanism to dispose, in this IT city!!!), now Bengaluru!
- Calcutta's make over from a communist fiefdom to Kolkotta & still stuck in past
- Most of our cities are less safer for our children, women
- Corporate stress has hit a new low, with more executives suffering (the new bomb set to explode)

Everyone search for happiness outside. Jeet also mentioned how he became a drug-addict and then shook off the habit. But he spoke about a level of bliss, when under addiction. He went on to allude there was no other way one could experience such a high. 

That is where I beg to differ. 'World is full of mysterious things...'
The mistake we make is we search for happiness outside. When true happiness is within. How to experience the bliss, minus any health hazard?! MEDITATION. Instead of health hazards, it will open a new world, full of genuine, lasting BLISS.

Blissfully !

PS : Got this forward from a friend :

Scott Neeson left Hollywood to save children rooting in Cambodia's garbage dumps: He sold his mansion, Porsche, and yacht and set off for Cambodia to provide food, shelter, and education to destitute children

I think what you said made a bunch of sense.
However, what about this? what if you added a
little information? I ain't saying your content isn't good.
, but what if you added a title to maybe get people's attention? I mean "Beautiful People on CNBC TV18" is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's
home page and watch how they write news titles to grab viewers interested.
You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
