  1. Hey Varun, you know you had taken place in the list of my favorites inspirations and inspiring personalities.

    You had given so many videos that looks motivating and conscious by the topic itself, it would take more than 3 months for me to watch every video of this list, but it looks so inspiring that I would surely watch and download completely.

    I Just wanted to know that had you really watched all these lengthy videos, in the list that you had mention in your post? Are all this 280 videos really watched by you?

    I just can’t appreciate you effort fully, because you are so dedicated towards blogging. I am also a newbie blogger and I had realized how many effort, hard work, research and dedication it takes to write just one small post. And you write just so lengthy and meaning full post that it just awesome. Even though I go to school (class 9 now) and you also go to college (I guess), and how you manage the time for posting in you blog regularly and also to watch these videos, and do these research along with? I just wanted to know these.

    And also I want to see your real face and want to add you in my facebook or google+ PERSONALLY. And now I know why you are not founded in FB and G+, because you are so busy!

    Thanks,
    I am always with you!

    • Hey Animesh,

      First of all, thanks dude for your precious comment. I’m glad young guys like you read this website on a regular basis. I must say, you are more mature than your age.

      I’m a college student and I like to code, research and watch real life documentary on weekends. I’ve seen all video listed under Consciousness, Biography, Digital revolution, Entrepreneurship and Science and Technology. Rests are under my “watch later” list. I run this website with my 2 friends and the things that we find inspiring and interesting is what you see in the post.

      And yes, we are not much active on Facebook or Twitter as we don’t get much time for online fun.

      Once again thanks for your kind words 🙂

  2. why the documentaries Paradise or Oblivion, those from ProsocialProgress/NewFutureMedia, and Zeitgeist trilogy isn’t there?
