  • Nice story. Born just after worldwar II, I could tell you a thing or two too :) Building your life from scratch and looking back at it you can experience the relativity of it all. Life is a labyrinth with u-turns in it, but you always arrive in the middle of your own essence. And that is the only thing you take with you when you die...

  • One more thing, you have a small square of advertising about "Deepak Chopra Endorphinates" or something like that, in that advertising, you have some rocks balanced on top of each other, and you have some earphones. There is not relation to all three to deliver a message in particular. However, I have a book of Mathematics that have rocks balance on each other like that, which implies abstract thinking and logical reasoning is related to our mental balance. Your earphones on the picture, on the advertise, there are very much alike to the ones I use. So, are we mind connected or this is a high super level of casuality.

  • Mr. Chopra, it is 12:25 PM Pacific Time, I am watching a video on your website, things are moving on its own, the little arrow on the computer, is clicking on what I think, so, if you haven`t hack my computer, which is a possibility, how is the cursor moving, if you are doing this manually, how do you know what I am thinking?

  • I love learning from you, but I must say this is one of the most enjoyable vidblogs so far :-) I enjoyed hearing how you made it to the US and all the other tit bits. Love the anecdote of the torch. Having grown up under British rule we do use English words differently to Americans. I still pronounce schedule the english way and get stares of confusion. My American husband told me "your leg feels trim" and I told him yes I shaved today. He said what does that have to do with anything. But in our world a trim is to cut hair lol ... hope we see more of these as time goes by.

  • I love the sentence, now it is on your head and Malika can never become the president. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I like the sentence, now it is on your head. // 2012-03-07 20:36:24 // //
  • ...loved it!!! So, it look as tho you were given the royal treatment on your initial arrival in NJ. I loved the dumping the paper part!!! It ranks right up there with a nurse continually interrupting me during report, being difficult, which point I shoved the chart across the desk at her, and stated "Here!!! It`s your responsibility now!!! Go figure it out, have twelve hours to find out what`s going on!!!" I had no idea that you were involved in trauma!!! My belief is that you were an Internist. Trauma, there`s a topic of conversation,... those patients are all the same, and yet they are all different!!!
