Time we call spade a spade
On the night of 26Th November around 11.30, I was sitting online chatting with friends. Then, someone told me there has been terror attack on Mumbai. I thought it must be another bomb blast. I did not feel any emotions. After hearing to blasts every other day in different parts of India, it doesnt have much affect on me. I felt cold, but I did not bother to even switch on TV. Later around 12 am, the same guy told me to watch TV. So, I switched on TV hesitantly, while my mind was thinking about t...

Blasts in Bangalore, Does anybody care?
Another terrorist attack, another Bomb blast, few deaths, few injuries, few economic losses. These have become a part and parcel of Indian life.Location changes, outfits involved changes, but the impact remains same, the intentions remain same.This time the location was Bangalore, the Garden city, the IT city. As in the past, TV, Newspapers and all sources of media will report it in headlines, then will make analysis and then forget it. People have lost interest; they comment about sad state and...

Kamasutra - Sex and Hinduism
It is Victorian mentality which condemns any depiction of sex. Hinduism recognizes the role of sexual desires in human lives. The sexual depictions in some of the temples were mean to not only educate the people, but also to help those who were involved in sexual sadhanas for enlightment. There is a difference between Nudity and expression of beauty and pornography. What appears in Hindu puranas and Itihasas are the expressions of genuine beauty and not pornography.Tantra is a much maligned word...
Nithin S S.Ghosh: You have never read Kamasurta in original. It is a big book. The first part is a sociological analysis of how nearly 2000 years ago in different parts of India people do their courtship, how they get married, how they behave after marriage. The secon.... [5 comments]

But, before getting into these blame games, its important to state the facts.Orissa has been a favorite destination of Christian Missionaries for proselytization. The illegal conversions are being carried out by missionaries in tribal areas. In Kandhamal District alone the Christ...

The Whitewashing of History
The History of India has been whitewashed and distorted first by European rulers which after Independence were continued by eminent historians of India and their supporters the Leftists, Seculars and self claimed Progressives of India to meet their own ends. They have painted the pre-Islamic invasion period as Dark age and have glorified the Islamic period to be very peaceful and prosperous. (The subject of distortions of history had been dealt by me in brief in the article “Indian History and A...

Destruction of Hinduism & Truth of Marxists
The Marxists and Seculars have created the myth that Muslim rulers were tolerant. They deny that there was mass temple destruction and mass Killing of Hindus. But, Dr.Koenraad Elst in his book “Negationism in India Concealing the record of Islam”3 writes- “The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers depor...

The Myth of Jesus Christ
Today, the Church and the Christians who for centuries had been committing atrocities against people of other religions in the name of Jesus, who had been proselytizing people in order to save them has no justification.
