Welcome to my participatory, interactive and learning blog.

God has been good to me in teaching students in a participatory manner. I thought it would be useful to apply this to the many unanswered questions that people are grappling with.

I do not have the answers for these questions. However when addressed and participatively through the social media we may learn some answers. Here are some sample questions.

Why are plastics banned?

Is microwaving of food harmful?

Is brown sugar healthier than white sugar? Yes? No? Why?

Why do increasingly people are moving to natural herbal foods?

There are other questions that have not been adequately discussed and real scientific information has not been brought out into the open.

In the blogs coming up subsequently, I would liKe to bring up one topic at a time and see what information is available on each of them.

May be you have questions, please bring them up and let us see if we can discuss them. To avoid overlap, I would like to take up one topic at a time.

This blog is not to promote the marketing of my books. Occasionally I will introduce some of my books. But I will not put pressure on you to buy any of my books. Most of the time, I may request you to share such info if you find them useful.

To avoid cluttering up other social media sites, I would like you to work on my blog if possible. All my messages from my blog would come to Facebook and LinkedIn friends.

So let us get started. Please join in the blog.

I look forward to seeing more of you participating together.
