Why did I start The Vigilant Mind?
The name represents people who think for themselves and don’t just go with the flow of society, for only dead fish go with the flow. I seek to establish an environment that is not fooled by the propaganda and coercion of the systems that seek to abuse us. Overall, I want to write about my thoughts, experiences, and advice on matters of youth relevance. Some of the topics I cover are:
- Mental health
- Personal development
- Political issues globally and in India
- Social issues (feminism, activism, etc.)
- Education: policies and personal development
- Self-awareness and handy psychological concepts
History of The Vigilant Mind
I never gave much attention to a world outside my PlayStation prior to 2014. Greater exposure to the Palestinian crisis was a turning point in my life. It was what showed me that AK-47 holding computer bots in games weren’t the only issues I had to fix. My activism and opinions mostly circled around in Google+ and Instagram. Eventually, as I noticed that readers liked the content and a few recommended that I should ‘preserve’ it, The Vigilant Mind came to be in October 2017.
Here are a few snippets of posts that are dedicated to my journey and experiences
