  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  2. Dear Shakti, thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your thoughts! Your blog looks very interesting and will be sure to stop by and read your articles!
    Cheers, Wendy

  3. Hi Shakti,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment regarding my story. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  4. Shakti,
    Thank you for you pleasant Comment on wingedbeauty.com. You piqued my curiosity…about the butterflies of … Jordan? May I suggest that my experience has taught that in most sunny, hot climes, butterflies fly very early in the morning, from as early as 6:30 AM to 10 AM…and then reappear from 6 until sunset. A vacationer hiking about might see few or no butterflies between 11 AM and 5 PM. FYI for the future.

  5. Hello Shakti, thank you for stopping by my blog, it is much appreciated! your questions actually got me thinking….. I am glad I stopped by yours as I am enjoying your posts!

    1. Thank you Audrey. You are kind and generous. Not sure though whether I am indeed following any pre-determined path. My musings occur to me as in the moment. How do they occur to you.



  6. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and sharing your thoughts! I appreciate it very much. You have a very interesting and thought provoking blog. I look forward to following your posts. 😀

  7. I have just started exploring your site, and have enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing what you share. It has been a pleasure. The appreciation others offer you is truly deserved. I look forward to reading more.

  9. I am so blessed that I am reading your blog.
    Very insightful. intriguing. intense.
    And yes I always wanted my parents to name me Riya. but they chose something very random with R- cant even say what it is 🙂

    1. Hi Pamela,

      Great to hear from you. Thank you for your kind acknowledgement. I truly appreciate.

      Though curious , shall refrain from asking you the name which your parents gave 🙂

  10. For me the most fascinating and rewarding aspect of blogging has been the ability to meet people from varied backgrounds and from all over the world. I love discovering that despite our many differences and cultural disconnects, when we strip away the outer skin,we find another loyal, beating heart just like our own. We are not so different after all. Would that global politics could also figure this out! Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a little “DNA.” 😉

    1. Thank you for this very encouraging and insightful comment. What I hear from you are two aspects:

      1) Stripped below the outer layer, all of us are same.
      2) It is political compulsions that keep us separate.

      So as we think of these two aspects, what could we do going forward?


      1. What you are asking, I believe, is how do we move beyond concept and into reality.I wish I knew. I believe travel is a good way to open minds and learn from each other. But I’ve known people who travel and come home just as closed-minded as they left.
        Blogging is like traveling without ever leaving your armchair. But there again, people tend to look for others who share their approach to life, therefore not taking advantage of the things to be learned about other approaches.
        I’m actually a bit guilty of that myself.

  11. Hi.
    Thankyou for visiting my blog and leaving valuable traces. Following your blog so that I don’t miss future updates from Oman!
    And cant hold on saying that I love the names of your daughters! Cheers to Riya and Piya! 🙂
    Best wishes.
    – Maria

    1. Hi Maria,

      Greetings and Welcome!

      I do hope I am able to live up to your expectations with my future updates 🙂

      Thank you for your kind and very personal acknowledgement. I truly appreciate.


    1. Dear Ruth,

      At the outset my apologies for replying late to you but I saw your comment just now!
      Thank you for your kind wishes and may I also reciprocate and wish you and your family all the best.



  12. Thank you for your visit to my site. My father was an engineer. You can read about him under the categories of “Family” and “The Space Industry”. He was my Renaissance man, understanding science, knowing several languages and mingling among folks of many cultures. Your posts have a familiar ring to them reminding me of conversations with him.

  13. Nice reading about you

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.

    So true when traveling our eyes and heart open up to everything. we can live the same way at home.Thank you for visiting my log. I am enjoying ‘the moment’. When I read where you take me. Carla

  15. Hi Shakti,
    Just passing by to have a read and see what you’re doing at this part of the Blogoshpere.
    Have a great weekend. 🙂

  16. Hi Shakti,

    Thank you for your recent comment on my blog post about random thoughts. It led me to your interesting blog, which I am now following.

    When I started blogging, I never dreamed that I would meet so many interesting people from around the world. I especially love your posts because they show me places that I probably would not have a chance to visit otherwise.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts!


  17. You may be an engineer, but I see after reading three of your entries that you also have the soul of a poet… beautiful and expressive writing posing very interesting questions. A pleasure to read.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a note of encouragement. Much appreciated!

  18. Hello,
    I’m still wondering how did a small and humble person, like me, managed to get the attention of such an intriguing figure as you are…
    Thank you again, and I do hope you’ll have the time for a future visit.
    Kindest regards from Romania to you and your family, Oana 🙂

  19. I think I get why you’d make that kind of comment on my post -Art games: spirits on mortals.
    Like that your interests go as far as business. I like some aspects of it, but not into it as much as to be actively involved, like I am in Medicine, Law, Psychology, Arts, Chess, etc.
    Nice meeting you, separated in reality by several kilometres and hours. *smile*

  20. Hi Shakti,

    Thank you for visiting my blog and the comment. It’s such an honour to have met you here in the blog-world.


  21. Thanks for visiting my blog. And ans you say, we need to appreciate the beauty around us. Perhaps that is the first step in taking care of our planet. You have me thinking…

    1. Hi Alice,

      As we shift awy from the mindfullness and clutter of thoughts. perceptions, attachments and fears, we shift into being mindful of the “here and now”, the beauty around and inside. That indeed can be a transformative step for us.

      God bless.


  22. Hi Shakti, I don’t know how it was that I missed that you have a blog. This morning I was looking at the wordpress stats instead of the dashboard stats, saw that I had not followed you. I want you to know that I didn’t realize you even had a blog. I’m sorry to know that such time has passed since you were so encouraging to me when I haven’t even checked on what you may be doing. Please forgive the delay.

    This looks like a blog I will greatly admire, and I can’t thank you enough for your commenting on my own. Comments are great rewards.

    I was planning one day soon to find out more about Oman as I told you I would. All I’ve ever known is that it’s next to Yemen. I can see the two of them sitting side by side, but I can’t even tell you the country above unless I’m having a really good day.

  23. Hi! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, and for the “like” on my post. I appreciate it so much.

    Your blog is lovely. I enjoy your beautifully written, thoughtful posts, and I look forward to reading more.

  24. Really loved the way you have described yourself. Nice to be going through your posts. Thanks for visiting my site. 🙂

  25. HI, first I thought you’re spaming me and become agresive. Than I saw your post and thought you’re naive because you try to unite all women. Now, I’m glad and pleased to met you because I believe that only religious and peaceful humans can change the face of the Earth, working and praying

    1. I am indeed sorry to have caused you distress initially. That was never the intention.

      Thank you for taking the time to visit and read my post.I agree, honest work and mindful prayers can show the way.


  26. I love the way the Blogoshere allows people of different cultures, backgrounds and experiences to connect with each other and foster a greater understanding and tolerance. I am so pleased that you stumbled on my Blog. I am now following yours

  27. I just want to say I’m all new to blogging and actually savored this web-site. Most likely I’m planning to bookmark your website . You surely come with superb posts. Thanks a bunch for revealing your web page.

  28. Hi Shakti nice to be here! Your professional and personal profile is pretty awesome. Look forward to some meaningful and random interactions. 🙂

  29. Thank you for visiting my blog and the encouraging words. Your blog posts are very insightful and I believe we share the same values of tolerance and understanding.

    1. Hi Darlene,

      Thank you for your visit here. You are right, we do share similar values and I do hope such a sharing would eventually make a difference to this world of ours.



  30. Greetings Shakti….I am just popping in to say hi and to tell you I nominated you for the Genuine Blogger Award. Your posts are quite moving and I deeply enjoy what I have read.
