Akaash Maharaj - Practical Idealism Akaash Maharaj
Welcome Practical Idealism

Welcome to my personal web site! I created this site in a fit of self-indulgence to serve as a forum for my writings and projects on the public good.

Many of my pursuits have been an expression of my faith in the place of practical idealism in the public sphere. It has always been my conviction that public service is the only secular reply to the yearning each of us feels to be part of something greater than ourselves, to live life in pursuit of aspirations more noble than the mere satisfaction of animal appetites.

My ambition for my web site is to build bridges of ideas and ideals across distance and region to others who share a desire to advance the public interest. I hope you will take a moment to offer me the benefit of your views and constructive criticisms of my work, and perhaps collaborate on some of my projects if you are so inclined.

I know that it takes courage to be an idealist in a cynical world, to hold fast to our ideals even as we are being stripped of our illusions. But I also know that practical idealists stand ready to do what is right not in spite of the difficulty, but precisely because of the difficulty, for it is only through the exercise of courage that we show ourselves worthy of our name.

I hope that you will enjoy your visit to my web site, and that if its content finds favour with you, we may have the chance to work together.
