Welcome to a blog with a difference - humorous, thought provoking, brain teasing, factual and developmental.
Although it is a forum, the original idea of bedside readings remains intact. That is why writing and publication of mini articles will continue there upon enabling subsquent discussions to be developed around them.
Note: Any text in this colour such as this, is a link. Just click on it to go to that article. Scroll to the right of this page and browse through the complete list of topics and articles. Click on the one you are interested in to access it.
The objectives of the forum are to:
- Share humour
- Share real life experiences
- Challenge each other intellectually and provoke new thinking – original, abstract, common sense or otherwise
- Exchange developmental ideas
What the forum isn’t meant to do:
- Not to be used by individuals or groups as a platform for propaganda against any type of Institution or Organisation – however, constructive criticism is welcome
- Not to be used as a media tool to engender personal negative interests including settling personal grudges
Any discussion which encourages challenging other contributors’ ideas creates inevitable differences between differing schools of thought. Such differences should be handled maturely and professionally – by expressing differing opinions, but at the same time showing respect for other contributors’ opinions.
You are all welcome and encouraged to contribute articles and comments which support the theme of bedside readings.
