My Congratulations To Wharton
So they got blindsided with this shrill Petition signed by 178 Professors led by Ania Joomba, Suvir Kaul and T. Ghose, threatening them with grave-sounding State Department bureaucratese from a 2005 SNAFU. They advised the students to be smart and let go on the rope a bit – and watch the Petition Gang tangle themselves in a heap. Shri Arvind Kejriwal, the new face of Indian politics that Wharton lined up at short notice, delivered the coup de grace with statesmanlike class[1]: “I am not a suppor...

Osho - The Exaggerated Soul
India is a country which is considered as the earliest of the civilizations, a country which not only gave different perspectives on science like Dwaita, Adwaita, Vaisheshka, Yoga etc but also music (raga), medicine (ayurveda), mathematics etc. In his commentary on India and women, Rajneesh Osho opines that Indian culture is insane and schizophrenic, that India thinks that the highest has already happened, that Manu and the scriptures condemns and condescend upon the women and sex has always bee...

Cong"s Communism & SoniaG"s Upkeep
Cho Ramaswamys Tuglaq (the protagonist in the eponymous movie) says, It is not possible to make the poor rich. Therefore make the rich poor and all will be equal! It is an unstated dictum of the communist proletariat. The communist elite (vlasti in Russian) had a different take on Marxist philosophy as George Orwell so vividly depicted in his Animal Farm. Irrespective of how they live, quite often the vlasti echo the proletarian edict, more to show that their heart is in the right place rather t...

The Two Stages of Devotion
Bhakti or devotion is a concept which is found throughout the world in one form or the other. From Christian prayers and Islamic namaz to Hindu puja and bhajans, elements of Bhakti are present in all the religions. Hindu scriptures define Bhakti as “Parama Prema-rupa Amruta Svarupa cha” (1). “Prema” means “Love”. Every person has loved someone or experienced love in one form or the other. Love between two people creates a bond, an attachment between them. It results in a person experiencing both...

The Two Ways of Performing Action
“Karma” or “Action” is the very foundation of our existence. A second does not go by without anybody performing any action. People are continuously involved in performing one or the other tasks- eating, drinking, talking, driving etc. But action does not refer to physical activity alone. Every word, every thought that arise in the mind represents an action being performed. The whole universe works on the principle action and reaction....

Why minority reservations in secular nation?
Thanks to the Congress partys unrelenting pursuit of vote bank politics the issue of reservations for minorities in jobs and educational institutions is back in the news. Designed as a ploy to regain a foothold in UP (as a key to capturing power at the centre in 2014), it carved out a 4.5% sub-quota for minorities (primarily Muslims) in the 27% reservation provided for OBCs. In its vulgar greed to capture power at any cost it conveniently forgot the sequence of events, beginning with the creatio...
UN Das John: Does minority quota reservations make any sense, the way it has been implemented, even for a temporary time? People, who are economically disadvantaged (regardless of caste, religious following) need help until they are brought up and then it must st.... [6 comments]
Time to Modi-fy India
Enough is enough. India is sick and tired. We are sick of lies and deceptions, of scams and cover-ups, of promises and failures, of vote bank and divisive politics, of nepotism and sycophancy. We are tired of the bickering, pompous politicians and their ignoble associates, the dynastic rulers, the family business of politics and the scams and schemes they manage. We are appalled by the directionless and disengaged government, awestruck by its leadership or the lack of it, disgusted with its indi...

Delhi Rape and Biased British media
It is a case of Shame for the British that even after exploiting India for 200 years, creating man made famines killing millions, ruthless killings and destructions during any uprising against its evil rule over India, British for the last 60 years are engaged in massive propaganda campaign against India. The coverage of the case of a rape and murder of a medical student in New Delhi demonstrates that the British media is trying to prove the culture and religion of India, coupled with complete i...

Lies, damn lies and reporting Gujarat
When it comes to reporting on Gujarat 2002, the media has not only a different idiom and different sets of moral and ethical standards to be applied to different people, but demands a totally different jurisprudence! Thus the edict, the law takes its own course does not apply to Gujarat riots cases. The judiciary must take medias word for it and convict all accused in the cases and more importantly Narendra Modi. According to the secular media the ends of justice would be met if and only if Nar...

Indra and Soma, Shiva and Madira
The Vedas describe this science of consciousness and achieving the supreme existence as a poetry where different forces are given different terms and a metaphorical usage. E.g Vedic Indra is the mind the ruler of the lower senses, the will power, the various breaths in the human being and hence called “devraaj Indra”. The will power is personified as Agni while the various breaths as vayu. According to Aurobindo, surya is source of knowledge, cows the rays of knowledge and wisdom, horse i...

Ideologies of Democratic vs Welfare States
The article focuses on economic impacts of the political ideologies used by Muslim welfare states and market economies of constitutional democratic capitalist nations. It suggests that recent actions of TTP (Tehrik-Taliban-Pakistan), TMQ (Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran headed by Dr Muhammad Tahirul Qadri or TQ), the army and political establishment may be contributing to internal destabilization of PK (Pakistan). The destabilization may be detrimental to on-going peace process in South Asia. The follow...
