I was brought up on strong Christian morals and virtues by my zealous grandparents. I had to endure the burden of reading the Bible, memorizing verses and also praying. I had to forgo an interesting game of Cricket to attend Sunday School. I have no regrets in having done all of this.
But now I have become a confessional existential nihilist atheist and I believe the sole purpose of an individual is authenticate his existence and I believe in Nietzsche’s Will to Power. I try to use language into writing of metaphors and thus I try to live my life creatively.
There was a time when I used to pray and read the Bible every day. The last time that I said the Lord’s Prayer was on my Father’s Death Bed. My father was in Coma and life was ebbing out of him. As he was transiting into death all I could do was recite the Lord’s Prayer. I sincerely hope that it would have comforted his soul.
