I surf the internet a lot. I have a passion for reading and
internet is a wonderful resource which keeps my thirst satiated. I
have been e-mailing the articles and news, I find interesting, to my
friends and they all seem very happy reading them (taking in to
account, of course, the differences in tastes of different
people). The positive responses, I have received, gave me the idea
that I could share these articles and news items with the visitors
to my site. This page is the result of this idea.
The articles on
this page (or rather the links to them) are mostly about "alternatives".
There are almost always two versions of the same event or thought.
One is the normally accepted (or should I say official?) version and
the other is an alternative one. I am always fascinated by the
alternatives, mainly because they put the thing in perspective. You
get both sides of the story and then you can judge and accept one of
the versions. At least, alternatives make an issue interesting. That
is why I have named this page as "interesting.htm". The articles
relate to supernatural, weird, alternative or forgotten versions of
history and other subjects and of course, articles I find
interesting even if they are not "alternatives" :-).
One of the best "alternative" I have ever
read is "The book of the damned", written by Charles Fort. It has
been said that you may start doubting your sanity after reading the
book. In my opinion, it is a must read book and worth some thought;
you may agree or disagree with his conclusions, but you will
certainly come to know of many interesting facts about the world we
live in - the facts which established science just chooses to
ingnore (may be because it has no answers yet).
The reason I am providing only the links is the
prohibitive cost of increasing bandwidth for my site. During the
last two years the no. of visitors to my site has been increasing
steadily and I have been upgrading my hosting packages.
If you find this page interesting enough bookmark this page (or
add to the favourites list in your browser). Keep visiting this page
as I will keep adding items to this page as and when I find them.
If you feel like saying something to me (sans
abuse, of course, as these articles are not mine), please write to
me at the email id given at the bottom of the page. Since this email
id is not a hyperlink, to prevent it from getting harvested by
spammers, you will have to type it out.
Disclaimer: I do not necessarily
agree or disagree with these articles. I am presenting these items
only because I find them "INTERESTING". To agree or disagree with
any of the articles is totally up to you. However, some of these
articles will surely turn out to be thought provoking.
