NYT corrects Modi editorial blunders
The editorial, Narendra Modis Rise in India was published by the paper on Sunday, October 26, 2013. It reflected – believe it or not – the combined wisdom of the papers Editorial Board. I have mailed the rejoinder on October 28 at 10.58 PM. There was an instant auto reply. After the usual blah, blah for contacting the opinion section etc., it goes on to say: We do not publish essays that are primarily responses to other opinion articles, columns or editorials in The Times. It helpfully adds, The...

Thoughts on Jati-Varna System
According to Sri Chandrashekara Saraswati Swamiji, the major blame lies with Brahmins, who first abandoned their Dharma. It is Brahmins dharma to study scriptures, learn vedas and all the rituals and practice them, teach them and living life in a humble and simple way. They guided society by example. When, they abandoned their Dharma for material comforts, then even the other Jatis followed. Hence, the whole system ended in a mess full of jealousy, discrimination etc. In fact, it must be added t...

Nava-Ratri-Celebration or Exhibitionism?
Those who will be celebrating Nava-Ratri, the nights of the Goddesses, the nights of the Shakti, should stop a moment and conduct a deep review of their own actions. Does the men in society conduct themselves the way they should with respect to women? Is it proper on the part of those Men who indulge themselves in harassing, eve-teasing, raping, or dowry burning etc etc? Is it right on the part of Women who themselves suppress other women, impose on them restrictions? Is it right on the society...

Congress, Dirty Minds and Hangdogs
The army of Congress spokespersons and their fellow travellers in the media wanted to find out if the P word was an indirect reference to the M word. Like literary critics they would find out if it did. Like literary critics they would read it into it even if it didnt. Congress selects its spokespersons based on their ability to turn on verbal diarrhoea at will. An important, common trait both the Congress spokespersons and their fellow travellers in the media share is a visceral hatred for Nare...

Temples, Toilets & Minority Politics
When a society treats a leader as an idol, all criticism is blanked out. The feedback mechanism is disabled. A leader who is blindly worshipped becomes blind to public opinion. It is not in the public interest. A leaders belief in his infallibility gives way to a certain conceit. As the leader comes to dislike criticism, his followers automatically screen it from him. It lays the path to dictatorship and the leaders eventual downfall. This was what happened in the case of Gandhi. His beliefs or ...

Hindu Activism Against Media - Book Rev..
“A billion strong Hindus have been taken for a ride, for so long, by so many eminent people, and at last they have seen through the game. Hindus have been woken up rudely after Mumbai 26/11, are alerting other Hindus who are in deep coma to wake up “to the Hindus who have been kept under Maya that all religions are the same and gain you the same goal” is Moksha delivered to the Hindu society” I had interviewed a retired Post Master General, who stated the above....

Reviving Dharma - Daughter Burning - I
Every time, any issue regarding women comes into picture, these so called proponents of culture and tradition ask for controlling daughters/sisters/wives etc. My question to these people is-What culture are these people talking about? This is not Hindu culture, this is not Sanatana Dharma....

Jnana, Bhakti and Karma
Karma, Bhakti and Jnana are the three main elements that are necessary for spiritual evolution. Every path to the supreme contains these elements- be it a Karma Yoga, or a Jnana Marga or a Bhakti. Moksha or Liberation is attained only through Atma-Jnana/Brahma-Jnana (i.e. Self-Realization), but one can attain Jnana through multiple paths like- Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Bhakti-Yoga, Raja yoga etc.Every path involves two stages, the lower or preparatory stages through which one develops required qu...

Who will clean garbage at Ashram?
The collective Hindu leadership has failed to defend Hindu Society, and the Intelligentsia; refused to take charge. History will hold them guilty for having failed to address these grave issues facing Hindu Society, all these years turned their heads away in stout denial and Hindus have been dumped. As a last resort, Hindus orphans as they are, will have to turn to their Gurus; and plead with them with folded hands to take active role in the coming elections that will reshape the political Histo...

Nirvana Shatakam: Translation
This is a beautiful poem written by Adi Shankaracharya, in which the state of Jnana, the Paramartika Satya is beautifully explained. Adi Shankaracharya explains how one should investigate into the true nature of Atman/Brahman by rejecting the Anatmas (Non-Self) that are mere superimposition on Atman. Neither am I (that which is called as) Prana (i.e. Mula-Prakriti), nor am I the five vital airs (i.e. Pancha Prana/Pancha Vayu), nor am I the seven-fold material (that make up gross body), nor am I...

Peace in South Asia 911
Three 9/11 dates are memorable for peace and war. First 9/11: Swami Vivekananda presented Vedanta philosophy at the first-ever Parliament of World Religions opened on September 11, 1893, in Chicago Second 9/11: Mahatma Gandhi adopted Satyagraha (Truth Force or Soul Force) in South Africa on September 11, 1906, as the only justifiable peaceful resistance method of achieving humane and just objectives. Third 9/11 stands for the unforgettable Tuesday in September 2001 for horrific terror attacks o...

Telangana And Political Ploys
For nearly ten years Congress, the ruling party at the centre brushed aside demands for a separate Telangana state. This is the fourth time that the issue has become a national political issue since the formation of Andhra Pradesh in 1956. Political leaders and parties either raised the demand for a separate state or supported agitations purely based on electoral considerations. Marri Chenna Reddys somersaults on the issue are a case in point. In 1956 he was for a united Andhra Pradesh. He later...

A deity can either be God or god or both
The basic philosophy of any religion relies on the acceptance of the existence of God and that of atheism on the rejection of such existence. Among theists, there have been lengthy debates, arguments and fights regarding what this God constitutes if it exists? Whether God is one or many? Whether it is God or it is god (Upper case and lower case “G”)? In an Indian scenario, we have on one extreme Monotheists claiming presence of one absolute God separate from world and on the other we have polyth...
