Life of Social Animals

By Paresh P.Ajmera

Human identity that you flaunt, refresh and update daily is bared in a liberating manner and the garb of religious beliefs/non-beliefs is made to fit such an identity in the most convenient manner. God, the Supreme Creator, and Devil, the Ultimate Destroyer, are both appeased for a better and smoother life. While religion takes refuge in certain mythological and extremely ancient events to explain human identity and morality, you should look around at contemporary societies in order to make your human identity enjoyable in the most moral, healthy and contemporary manner. In fact, you can be god-daring and maintain good relationships with gods and peoples of all religions for your own benefits. You can consequently feel your mundane identity completely evolved in order to enjoy it under any circumstances and amongst people of any society. Also, blind belief in a single religion can only bring in hypocritical concepts, dogmatic rigidity of thinking and unnecessary “god-fearing-ness” in day-to-day life.

"Born and brought up in Chennai, India, with education in Chemical Engineering from Anna University, Chennai, and Software Development from NIIT, Chennai, Paresh P Ajmera is a self-employed computer software developer at Chennai, India. He is good at understanding and explaining different human perceptions as a system in an extremely logical and practical manner. Paresh is a complete family man with a son and a daughter. The author has written this book with a lot of awareness of any modern materialistic society and the weaknesses of religious leaders to explain the same completely and practically. With attendance in places of worship being mostly social obligations, with the strict dictates of any success-driven materialistic society of today and with psyches of today’s readers shaped by “god-daring” books, religious books offering practical and mundane solutions, popular philosophy, general psychology and self-help books of contemporary world, the author is visible in this book as a crusader for enjoyment of human identity in a selfish yet moral manner. Also, things which disturb or affect individual or mass psychology of humanity in any manner or constrain their philosophical viewpoints have always been and will remain his source of inspiration in his career. Paresh Ajmera’s abilities to write this book are primarily because of his being brought up in India (the East) and his exposure to the Western world through movies, literature and news. In India, every move of our lives is measured by traditions (religious or social or legal or whatever) which according to Paresh is quite dictatorial and less liberating. And in the West, every move of life is measured by one’s success and uniqueness (be it psychological, philosophical, cultural, materialistic or just novel). The only weakness in any success-driven and materialistic society is that people do things beyond their psychological, physical and moralizing powers, thanks to their never-ending race for success and materialism. Thus this book acts as a bridge connecting and compromisingly merging the thoughts of the West and the East. And since his own roots are in Jain religion, his non-parochial, secular and humane approach to the concept is highly visible in this book.He has been greatly influenced by the richness of English language and its impact on human thought processes and societal happenings. He has feelings and thoughts like any common but modern man, woman or teen interested in societal and materialistic living infused by spiritual leanings. Paresh likes to share such thoughts and feelings with every human being. He has never aimed to be any authoritative figure. The best way to describe him is a “Watch-man” of humanity (an observer and a reporter of contemporary personal thoughts and cultures of human beings inspiring them to be as evolutionary as possible and self-protectors and celebrators of their own individual identities)."
