Last weekend I had been to Karwar with a few friends. We had a nice time there with lots of watersports like coracling, canoeing, rafting, kayaking, wind-surfing etc in the beaches of Karwar. In the evening, we went on a trek over a hill and landed in another beach, pitched our tents there and spent our night. It was just awesome.

I couldn't sleep that night. I was just watching the stars and the waves and the forest. There were hills on three sides and the endless ocean on the other. It was a silent night with only the sound of waves. Lots and lots of questions in my mind. Questions about the why and how of the universe; questions which would have probably crossed the mind of most of us, but still remained as questions. Questions about the approach of science to explain the universe and the approach of spirituality for the same.

Why do such questions come to our mind? Why does man want to explain the universe?
Why can't we get the answers?
- answers anyone?
