Racism has existed throughout human history. It entails the abhorrence of one person by another due to the belief that that other person is less than human being because of his or her language, customs, especially his or her skin color or any other factor that exposes the essential nature of that person ("Racism"). For me, the belief with regards racism still depends on one's upbringing. Family is the basic foundation of one's beliefs and points of view of an individual, and as such, one's family background and upbringing either helps or avoid the development of a racist attitude. It should start in the parents' advices and lessons with their children. As a daughter and sister, I will treat all my relatives, whether they are of different races, equally. I will love them just like how I love my parents and siblings. Being a student, my viewpoints regarding racism has been altered when my eyes has been opened into different perspectives. I learned that all humans, whatever race they belong, are equal, especially in God's eyes. Therefore, I, as an individual and as a human, must treat all human beings with respect, without discrimination and prejudice. I need not be an ethnocentric who believes that the basic standard and principles of life and everything around me is anchored to the culture where I belong and to the country where I live in.read more
I am more than in the spring of life. It was ten years ago that made me understand the fullness of life. Ten years ago was a moment that painted and created a different meaning of my being a woman. Ten years ago made me understand completely my purpose in life. So, I prepared for that moment like I have never prepared for anything else that happened to me. I wanted that moment like I never wanted anything else in this world. I was worried, I was afraid, I was happy, I was excited. My husband and I looked forward to that moment with so many dreams; hopes; plans and wishes. My entire family prayed for every good tiding that such moment will give us all. Ten years ago was the time when I gave birth to my son.read more
I learned from my sociology class that poverty exist even in highly developed country such as the United States extending to the slum areas of India’s urbane cities. Poverty permeates the different levels of socio-cultural identities an individual has such as its income, gender and status. The advent of modern technologies brought about many challenges that aggravate poverty resulting to a creation of its two faces. The two faces of poverty, I learned form my sociology class consist of American and Indian style of poverty.read more

Samuel Barclay Beckett (12 April 1906 to 22 December1989) was an Irish dramatist, novelist and poet. Beckett's work is stark, fundamentally minimalist, and, according to some interpretations, deeply pessimistic about the human condition. The perceived pessimism is mitigated both by a great and often wicked sense of humour, and by the sense, for some readers, that Beckett's portrayal of life's obstacles serves to demonstrate that the journey, while difficult, is ultimately worth the effort. Similarly, many posit that Beckett's expressed "pessimism" is not so much for the human condition but for that of an established cultural and societal structure which imposes its stultifying will upon otherwise hopeful individuals; it is the inherent optimism of the human condition, therefore, that is at tension with the oppressive world. His later work explores his themes in an increasingly cryptic and attenuated style. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969 "for his writing, which—in new forms for the novel and drama—in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation".read more
Socrates was one of the considered greatest and controversial philosophers in the world. He was very well known for his statement. “All I know is that I know nothing”, in response to the words of the gods of Greece saying that there is no wise man other than Socrates (Zannos, 2005).Socrates had many followers who were amazed by his wisdom, but there were also people who despised him and his principles that led to his conviction. During the Peloponnesian War, Athens was defeated by the Spartans. Athenian government had a second thought whether a democratic government was the best form of government. Socrates was one of the critics of democracy then. He was accused of instigating the minds of the youth against the government. Instead of fleeing, he chose to remain and stick with his principles because Socrates believed that escaping was not an act of a true philosopher. He was sentenced to death in 399 B.C (Kemerling, 2006).read more

In January 1948, before three pistol shots put an end to his life, Gandhi had been on the political stage for more than fifty years. He had inspired two generations of India, patriots, shaken an empire and sparked off a revolution, which was to change the face of Africa and Asia. To millions of his own people, he was the Mahatma- the great soul- whose sacred glimpse was a reward in itself. By the end of 1947 he had lived down much of the suspicion, ridicule and opposition, which he had to face, when he first raised the banner of revolt against racial exclusiveness and imperial domination. His ideas, once dismissed as quaint and utopian, had begun to strike answering chords in some of the finest minds in the world. "Generations to come, it may be", Einstein had said of Gandhi in July 1944, "will scarcely believe that such one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon earth."read more
Few outside artistic or academic circles know much about Lithuanian artist Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis; however, those who once encountered with the paintings of this artist are well-aware of his genuinely unique and evocative style. Apart from being an established painter, Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis is known for his musical works, specifically symphonic poems. Throughout his short and tragic life, Ciurlionis enjoyed little recognition from his contemporaries. Out of his 200 paintings not a single one was sold during his lifetime. Only the most brilliant minds of those times appreciated his remarkable talent -- the French writer Remain Rolland once referred to Ciurlionis’s art as ‘a completely new continent,’ where the artist himself was ‘Christopher Columbus’ (Sepetis 1985).read more
