THE JOURNEY OF SURVIVORS

70,000-year history of Indian sub-continent

REDISCOVERING INDIA

Unraveling the mystery of our roots to understand the present and predict the future.

WOMEN, SEX AND PREJUDICE

Do we have it in us to give the fairer sex the place they deserve?.

CURRENT AFFAIRS

Change of world order. Religious Terrorism. Where are we heading?.

INCREDIBLE INDIA

Wanderlust Hodophiles.

Welcome to KHOJ: The search to know our roots and understand the meaning of our existence.

Prejudice is the biggest problem in the society. It can be it in terms of religion, cast, sex, skin-colour, status etc. Prejudice can also be in form of the feeling that human beings are the greatest creation, or even patriotism about artificially created borders. The motto of KHOJ is to gain knowledge and break that prejudice. But there is a word of caution for the readers. To break the prejudice KHOJ might throw upon you the concepts it believes in. If the reader believes on KHOJ’s perception without question, then KHOJ itself might incept a prejudice in the readers mind thus failing in it own motto. KHOJ is trying to break its own world of prejudice, but at times that prejudice might get reflected in its writing. Please do challenge them.

Suicide [by Prateek]

The opinion below is that of the writer and not necessarily of Khoj....any one willing to write a guest post here can email me at subhrashis.adhikari@gmail.com >>>



"Hi Again! I guess you all know this unwise blogger who goes by the name Prateek. About him? Eh?! Ah! Oh! ... You know his witty side if you have read his blog." - SUB

~<o>~

Subhrashis asked me to put a witty bio before I continue with my post. I tried hard but it is really difficult for me to come up with some witty stuff until I am not getting paid to write. Anyhow, this is Prateek from The Unwise Prevails over the Wise. Weird name, I know. Either Subhrashis was under weed or was in an ecstasy of his fatherhood when he said, “Yes, jabber on my blog Prateek but be naaice.” My post turned out to be different this time, different from my niche.

INCEST [by Janhvi]

"I love Janhvi's blog because you feel the truth and honesty in her words...You will find her HERE....over to her" - SUB

I am just another girl among oh so many. I just love to spend hours altogether listening to songs on my system and viewing pictures of my family members, especially my young cousins. I love talking and people around me stay amazed by my quality of constant talking. Am an introvert to the world, but my true friends know that am actually anything but an introvert. Am extremely fond of reading ( mainly fiction) and of writing. As the name of my blog suggests (Thoughtful Thoughts), I write about any thought that stays long enough for me to pen (type) down as a post. Thoughts are in millions, but thoughtful thoughts are a few.

A Journey [by Saru]

“I guess there is no need to introduce the girl who has mesmerized the blogosphere with her magical words. You can find her HERE! In this guest post she takes you through a journey that you can’t miss.” - SUB >>>

First, I would thank Subhrashis for giving me this opportunity of guest blogging. It's an honor to be a part of his blog. I'm a Practising Company Secretary who is not at all like everyone else in this profession. My mantra in life is to chill. The best quality in me is that I don't judge people which helps in having strong bonds with everyone I know. As many of you know that I am a poet. I love travelling, cooking and sleeping. I'm a big big fan of action movies and love to read thrillers. However, trading in share market tops my list of what I can't live without. Lastly, for this poem credit goes to Subhrashis as I stole words from his timeline and composed it. Do read the timeline on this blog

At present, I am working in the marketing department of a steel company, the office is in Kolkata.  Amid pushing and shoving of the metro trains, I try to keep on thinking. I like writing abstract stuff, which I find tough, but sometimes I get some success with some topics on abstract front. I like to write on subjects that surround me, with a different angle, though every time I don’t succeed.
Anyways, I am a big fan of the writings of SUB and here I am contributing for the first time as a guest blogger.

Happiness [by Anu]


"Anu has been Khoj's first 5 followers, and the only one amongst them who still comes back to read my post. It is for readers like her that Khoj exists. Thanks Anu. You can find her HERE!" -  SUB

I am thankful to Mr. Subhrashis Adhikari who gave this opportunity. When I mailed him this post, he asked me to write something about my blog and brief intro. Before saying anything about my blog I m mesmerizing few verses by the enlightener of Gazal  Jagjit Singh:

“ye shohrat bhi lelo ye doulat bhi lelo magar mujhko louta do meri jindgaani vo kagaj ki kasti vo barish ka paai”

Well no one can fulfill his place in the field of gazals.  Memories always leave their footprints in our hearts. The thing which we can do is that we can memorize those instants. These are merely some joyous and painful moments of our life, but when somewhere you sit alone only these instants spread your lips wide, your eyes starts twinkling. My blog is the mixture of memories; memories may be one day old or 1 min old. These are memories and your appreciations which make my mind to write. 

My name is Anuradha Sharma. I am a b.tech 4th year student. I started writing blogs last year in September. I am not a regular blogger. I write just for my own improvement. More than writing I love reading blogs. I can spend my whole day sitting and thinking alone beneath a tree. Being a moody person I love doing things in my own way.  Having a kiddish nature many times I do some foolish things. My best friend always calls me idiot and mad. But the same I am a bit matured too.

I wrote this post last year. Here I am talking about “happiness”.

A student of technology with a passion for writing and  a person who has an opinion on anything and everything! The blog is all about what I feel, what I perceive and is full of things happening around. Contains a lot of opinions and humor, something which unfortunately only I find as being funny. 


This is the first time I'm writing a Guest Post and I'm glad that it's for Khoj, for Khoj was one of the first blogs I followed when I entered the blogosphere. Khoj has always been one of my favorite blogs and I'm truely honored that SUB did accept this post.So a big thanks to SUB and to all the other readers here. I hope to see all you guys at my place- ....Here I Am!. Thank you all once again.

Now What!! [by Somyanshu]


"Hi guys! thanks for the visit. My life has changed on 5th Oct, the day after Khoj's anniversary. I was reborn as a father. My little Hridhima needs all my attention, so Khoj will see a lot of guest posts here. This is the second guest post in Khoj. Survival of Khoj now depends a lot on you guys.

Hi, my name is Somyanshu Arora. First of all I would like to thank Mr. Subhrashis Adhikari for this opportunity. I am a native of New Delhi but currently I reside in Ropar as I am pursuing B.Tech from IIT Ropar. Blogging to me is something more than a hobby. I have been blogging for nearly a year now. I like to write about different things in a different way. For example, I once compared how our feelings can be compared to lewis acids and bases. Another example would be my series TRUE STORIES (to be frank they are not actually true, I just kept the name because the characters are based on people I see around)..in which I have described how a boy changes. You can find all my posts at my blog  www.somyanshu.com. Do come there and help me improve through your precious comments.

M.U.K.T.I.


Monday, 4th October, 2010 … Just born … excited – nervous – alone…staring at the vast unknown. Where to start? Where to head? She crawled slowly … looking around for attention. Along came an angle - Jhonny Walker…few tips and she started to walk…as she walked more angles came by…and then more followed….excited – nervous, but alone no more…a year long journey, her name – KHOJ.
