The purpose of my writing is not to come up with new ideas or to say things that have not been said before. It is to understand my own thoughts in a manner that is coherent to me.
I make no claim to consistency or correctness of my assertions – their ultimate test is that they make sense to me. I wish I could say, like Gandhi, that the later works are more representative of my current thinking. However, I find myself unable to even assert that.
Since, I am more prone to being wrong than right – through omissions, missing meaningful connections, vanity or just plain stupidity – I hope that my readers will be kind to me and when they see such mistakes and engage with me in a dialogue.
