What is SAMAY? SAMAY is
Time. It is a journey unto itself. It is introspection while watching
the world outside. It is like a child playing on the porch watching
the world pass by. It all happens before his eyes and yet the child
is absorbed in playing. This is the sort of aloofness time seems
to have. Well, that's about to change.
We are at a juncture in
this story of time to which we have to pay attention. It is time
to pause and reflect. Things are moving fast around us and constantly
evolving. Yet even in this dynamic universe of ours, we a mere microcosm,
some things are regrettably permanent. The permanence of misery
moves us from time to time in varying degrees. This movement, however,
reminds us that there is more to our perfunctory existences - Life.
Locomotion is one overt characteristic of life and at a deeper level
a moving conscience validates our physical existence to us. It proves
to us that we are more than just flesh, blood and bones. SAMAY will
try to keep our collective conscience alive.
Yet we cannot take life
too seriously. A measure of a society's health is the state of humor
in it. No kidding
laughter is the best medicine. Our goal will
be to provide you with thoughtful writings and a positivism that
we can channelize into tangible action. While all this is happening
we want our readers to enjoy themselves as we plan to do the same.
SAMAY is the saga of our
times that YOUNG INDIA will narrate. YOUNG INDIA is a group founded
in 1997 to explore peace and the oneness that pervades all of human
existence. We hope that this tale we tell touches everyone. We all
are its characters. We hope that you find these writings insightful.
SAMAY is one of YOUNG INDIA's most cherished contributions and seeks
your readership in these days of its infancy. . We invite you all
to join us in sharing your dreams of a better world - today and
The journey begins
