Star No more a stranger

Hello to all the free thinkers of India. My name is Pavan and I was born a Brahmin. I have been an atheist for 3 years now and I feel this is one of the best realizations that I ever had.

I am happy to know that these many Indians are atheist and that I now have a platform where I can express my views about this topic without facing a lot of discrimination.

I hope to connect with many different people and understand the problems of life without a vague explanation called "GOD".

The easiest answer to a difficult question is almost always not the right one.

RE: No more a stranger

Hi anniyan, I'm new here too. But I've been Atheist for at least a decade, if not more.

I'd like to point out that being born brahmin is totally irrelevant and the caste system is a predominantly religious system of segregation and I think it doesn't need to be mentioned or even remembered. I've never asked my parents what my caste is/was because I don't need to know and the answer won't change anything.

I completely agree with you. But I have been born and brought up in a very orthodox Brahmin household. My parents still don't know my views about god. Although my brother and his wife know about it and they seem to respect me decision if not understand it.
