A short note

Fredrick Nietzsche was active in the late 19th Century, the world was transforming into a modern society, he questioned morality, christianity and everything that surrounded it.

His later works in 1880s revolved around superman, a human being not tied by society's bounds, shrewd and powerful.

Approximately 40 years later, when the world was on the verge of a moral and political crisis, Adolf Hitler read Nietzsche, he aspired to be the superman.

Approximately 40 years later, when patriotism meant killing of unknown vietnamese, Jim Morrison read Nietzche, he aspired to be the superman.

Approximately 40 years later, I went to strand book store, bought Nietzsche's most popular and significant creation Thus Spoke Zaratrushtra. One day, Karthik came and stole it from me, along disappeared my powerful future. :)
