    Reflections: It is the inner world that can boast of eternity

    And the band plays on. Day in and day out, we hear the cries of many bemoaning the facts of our existence. We act as if the one we are can be seen in the eyes of others. As if to say “our very humanness is not decided by ourselves but what others think of […]
