In one article , Mr. Jethmalani accused P. Chidambaram as the ''friend, philosopher and guide of black money in India.'' Mr. Chidambaram did not protest or take the accuser to court. Neither did Sonia Gandhi when he accused Rajib of taking bribe. And these same people have the audacity to accuse Raje and Sushma. These politicians have no shame.

Arun Jaitley is also a doubtful character. I read somewhere his wife had influenecd some PSU to sponsor some hockey matches where she is the lawyer. Very similar to Sushma case. Few years ago, a minister in UK has allowed his nanny to use a rail pass which was illegal. The minister had to resign the next day. He was not told to do so, he just did that out of his own conscience. I wonder when our ministers will have that courage. Sushma, Raje and Jaitley are very rich in the Indian standard, and still these people are very greedy, so much so, they abuse their position to amass wealth for themselves and their family. Shame on them.

There is no need for despair; It is more than clear The brilliant youngsters of IIT are NOT getting the opportunity, ambience and remuneration for real engineering work in india. Let us remind ourselves the work of an engineer is  to do Product or Process design- not management only  .  Such design has to be innovative, cost competitive, have low maintenance and high life   and  be of widespread use value. Lot of IP patents are to be generated. The existing IITs should have Professional Engineering design and production capability and run it as business on commercial lines The engineers for these should be the top most of the lot having inventive skills. The mahaan private sector has to fund all the design projects and can share the IP with the IIT and the engineers. . The wards can be given an HONOURS degree or post grad degree. Along with present faculty , top designers from the world market must be brought (hired as Chief designers etc) into the staff with professional Product and process design and production/tool engg responsibility and authority with clear cost and time goals Every new item or CIP item will require R and D or technology dev. Required R and D in design or process must be funded . It can be on PPP mode.. In short unless professional engineering practice is brought onto the wards , we will not produce the class of chartered engineers modern times demand. They shall be paid attractive stipends and scholarships and work till their projects complete and the products and processes are commercialized. There is way like this; but the will and implementation efficiency respectively of the likes of a Sir CV Raman or Sir MV is needed. The design and Development Engineering centers of the IIT should become the most wanted on this planet in 20 years . Meanwhile More  IITs of existing standard must be created for the competitive body market of the world in working as engineer managers / supervisors and to bring up the society of engineers among our huge population

Gender confers biological roles, so if men are hardwired for chess, it is not in the least surprising. Chess is a proxy war and males are hardwired for waging wars, irrespective of species. Protecting the physically weak is one of the duties that is conferred by gender on males.

Females have the hardware for incubating and producing the next generation and are hardwired to protect and nurture the child during its protracted infancy when it is dependent on the mother for its survival, even if the infant later turns out to be a misogynist without a shred of gratitude.

Outlook’s regret does not sound like one.

“A satirical snippet titled "No Boring Babu"…”

If this is what they call “satire”, it’s time the OLI Chandal Chaukani opens a dictionary and looks up the word!

‘Even though it did not cite names or specifics…”

It did! Don’t lie!!

“Outlook is still to receive it 36 hours since the media blitz was launched.”

How does it mitigate your crime?

“On social media, the magazine's correspondent in Hyderabad has been subjected to vile and personal attacks, and her physical safety has been threatened.”

The magazine's Hyderabad correspondent did a personal attack on the bureaucrat in MSM, she deserves all the attacks she got on the SM. Simple. (As long as she is not physically harmed.)

“Outlook wishes to clarify that the said piece…was not intended to be derisive or derogatory”

It was. When you reduced her to just her physical appearance and cheap hints like “She knows exactly what time the CM will arrive and leave the office.”

Outlook expresses regret if any offence has been taken.

IF?? Really??

And only the secus, left-loonies, and the assorted libtards consider consider Outlook to have an “established record of preserving, promoting and projecting human rights, women's rights, minority rights, and free speech”

Objective readers consider it a glorified gossip magazine that published the articles and opinions of the most rabid congressi-chamchas and left-leaning riff-raff, who have an enormously inflated egos. The one and only criteria it has for selecting journalists is how rabidly anti-BJP or anti-Modi a journalist is.

Outlook has a record in “preserving the women's rights”! just a month or so back, it allowed a blatantly sexist and insulting point of view that a lady minister “has no right to object to being peeped at from a hidden camera in a clothes store” if she, as a actor in her previous job, “has faced so many cameras”!

" If we were such a well-oiled society/collective........ then I would think we should have still been in ascendancy and not be able to be taken over so easily and even if taken over only temporarily to be back again with much more vigor."

Arun, things dont seem to add up because all the fragments are not in place. To avoid overlong posts, I am restricting myself to one point at a time. In the previous post, I made the point that Indian society was vibrant and continuously reinventing itself. It was not decadent and ready to decay. 

It is important to remember that governance was very loose in feudalism. There was a king at the capital who had his governors and each governor had his suborfinates at the district and jagir level. As long as a feudal underling collected taxes and supplied his quota of soldiers, there was no interference in the way he ran his domain. As for the subjects, they lived mainly in villages and had no interaction with the feudal lords except when they came to collect taxes. The villagers took care of their needs, administered their villages through panchayats. To them, it hardly mattered whether their ruler was a Hindu or a Buddhist or a Jain or a Turaka (Turk or foreigner). 

When the ruler was strong, his realm was peaceful wich was conducive for trade to flourish. The wealth created facilitated intellectual activities and when cities became centres of intellectual excellence, they attracted talent from all over the country. 

When the ruler was weak, he was not able to rein in his feudatories who jostled for power, leading to the break up of the empire. In the 12th century, after the disintegration of the Gurjara Pratiharas, there were internecine hostilities between the various chieftains. When there was a feudal overlord, he could call up all his feudatories to fight the invaders with their combined might. When Prithviraj succumbed tothe Ghorid invasion, his own father-in-law, the ruler of Kannauj, Jaichand, sided with Ghori.

When the invaders took control of India, the violence of the victors left India shell shocked. The society closed ranks and went into a state of atrophy. Internal criticism came to a stop and conservatism and orthodoxy took over. it became moribund. Caste became rigid, social evils crept in. Without royal patronage, intellectual activity came to a sudden halt,The decline happened after the invasions and not prior to them.

I shall discuss caste in a different post.

OLIs immediate apology ( the lady in question was nt even named ) for the satire, shows how intolerant the public is, and how very aggressively antagonistic they are to any views they dont agree with 100%,.

At this rate, India will soon become 'Banistan', and the media will ONLY write politically correct ( read: feminsit )  articles that all readers, are satisfied with. 

This is espeically true when it relates to opinions on women, which are termed 'sexist' ( though the same would nt have applied to a satire on a male ). And. like in the case of Tarun Tejpal, 'natural enemies' like BJP, will only make full advantage of this situation.

This is not just feminism, but fascism or dictatorship by powerful feminists. And is happening around the world.

DLN ..... "Your point that India was in a state of decline and ready to self-destruct is historically inaccurate."

"State of decline" it was - at least your arguments are not adding up. If we were such a well-oiled society/collective where the Brahmins kept up the intellectual rigor and vigor, the Kshatriyas the martial capacity/capability, the vaishyas the economic vitality and the "others" the hard labor, then I would think we should have still been in ascendancy and not be able to be taken over so easily and even if taken over only temporarily to be back again with much more vigor.

"Self-destruct" - I never said. In fact, I have always argued that the design principle of "caste" was to survive and outlast with islands of brilliance (but not the same as collective excellence - that for example the Americans seem to done well on). So caste did meet it's design objective (though with grave side affects/consequences). So self-destruct was never on the cards - getting moribund was and it still seems the most plausible thing that happened.

So I quickly eat some bread and drink a lot of milk and water, because I can have none thereafter till the time of iftaar.

Interesting.

Just curious. Do you also keep fast for any Hindu religious festivals, or only during Ramzan?

Also, does your friend Asif, or his wife, fast for one day during Navratras, or they don't bother reciprocating the gesture? You have conspicuously failed to mention either of the two points.

What is the most essential and most important ideology to solve the complexities of poverty and global warming, scientific issues aside?

First of all, what we need is peace and solidarity. Without peace and solidarity, it is impossible for the world community to pay devout attention to addressing poverty and pandemics. Today war, violence, and political collisions are the real cause of poverty. Economic differences and the disagreements between natural and academic sources are not only the obstacles for a global community struggling against poverty.

The world leadership will have to try to bridge up the religious boundaries without disgracing the belief of any human kind as essential contemporary need, to perpetuate the basis for peace and solidarity in fact.

At the forefront, the world community is baffled by the means to prevent global warming. On the other hand, we have developed weapons of mass destruction that could destroy the world beyond our imaginations. Thus, without peace and solidarity, any attempts to solve all issues relating to poverty and global warming constitute a political business in actual fact.

THE ONE WAY PATH TO PEACE


Presently, the achievements of scientific insight are resurrecting beyond the process of Nature, and the graces of spirituality are descending to a dangerous abyss.

In fact, the definitions of all the leading world religions are based on their contemporary needs, to help human being to evolve under Natural process on basis of peace and solidarity, not to obtain the narcissus and terrestrial bliss among the rot of massacre.


Our money and gun power are not potential enough to combat the thoughts of terrorism that conceals their sins behind religious narcissism that enthralled in mazes of terrestrial and political issues.


To prevent the rise of terrorism, we’ll have to clarify the roots of faith and the facts of the materialism disgracing all believers and atheist alike. Till now, we are destroying the embodiment of terrorism, ignoring its brutal ideology still invincible before the entire world.


It had been always lethal to write or address in favor or against the institutionalized faith of human being divided by several religious and political strictures. For a “unanimous conclusion” to tackle the clashes between religion and state, theism and atheism, PLEASE SIGN AND PROMOTE THIS PETITION to prevent the further rise of hate religious campaigns and rescue humanity from the shadow of Nuclear weapons.

What are you talking about!! One word can evoke a strong reaction. Remember “maut ka saudagar”? 10 lines, such as these that carry more “insinuations” than truth, can tarnish reputations! Journalists who claim to be responsible should know this.

“The snippet may have been frivolous and in poor taste but one hardly expects a gossip column to have the gravitas of an op Ed page.”

OLI claims to be a serious, opinion- maker magazine, even though it acts like a gossip magazine most of the time.

“Though this article on her is uncalled for and somewhat objectionable to any Indian woman,this article didn't contain anything that questions the inegrety and sincerity of Ms.Smîtha.”

It did. Read again:

“But what she does exactly is a puzzle.” “…serves as “eye candy” at meetings.” “The lady is present at every meeting and seen in almost every official photograph sent out by the CMO.” “She knows exactly what time the CM will arrive and leave the office.”

Well put by Mr. Dohare.  

If china considers South china Sea as its own front, back and everything in-between yard, and keeps claiming territories belonging to all other countries there, then there is significantly more scope for clashes and real war between china and the rest of this hemisphere.  

china better remember that and not throw stones while living in its own glass house.

D-6/66.   >>>> Idol worship.

Patrice Ayme says, "India has a million gods. But the fascist military structure implicit in Christianism helped Europeans to conquer the world. With Biblical efficiency.

How? India, under polytheism, had zero religious wars (as Partha a commenter to this site, pointed out). Why? Polytheism accommodates many feelings, ideas, dispositions, characters, and divinize them all. This insures tolerance where it is the most important to have it, in the heart.

However, under the fascist god, any slip of interpretation of proper worship may result in divine annihilation, thus it’s of the essence to kill unbelievers. That’s why religious wars and holocausts (as happened to the Samaritans) started in the Roman empire after Constantine imposed Christianism. Before that there had been none since the Romans had done away with human sacrifice religions (Gaul, Carthage), four centuries prior." Islam is fixated on idol worship for some reason!

The essence of monotheistic theology is, if you will forgive the neologism, fascitology. It’s military pathology in disguise, and how to make intolerance divine. Killing god is a must for those who want to be free.

And that’s exactly why the SS adopted in 1933 “Gott Mit Uns!” (God With US) and the Congress of the USA goose-stepped behind in 1954 with “In God We Trust”.

Making We The People stupid with god enables masters to manipulate it down into complete impotence and destitution. As observed.

How did Sanskrit get to Syria? Sanskrit was compiled in India. Latin and Greek, sister languages of Sanskrit most likely spread to Europe with Agriculture and outmigration from India before the Saraswathi civilization. The city of Krishna, Dwaraka, has been dated at 10000 BC, now under water. Hindu civilization appears to be incredibly old, much older than the Biblical creation date, 4000 BC.

"Your sarcasm is pathetic! Try not to use it."

Your sense of misplaced loyalties is so touching, The way you rush in to support your not-too-bright Ahmad Pasha is commendable.

I suggest that you go over to Long Island and over a glass of Long Island Iced Tea (statutory warning -  it does not contain tea) tell him that what I was actually saying was that the invaders were iconoclasts who thought there was great merit in breaking idols and demolishing temples.

"That language in Syria was at best a prototype or pre-cursor"

No Varun, it was not a pre-cursor or a prototype The timeline of Sanskrit has been distorted by early researchers to conform to Christian beliefs that the world came into existence in 4000 BC. Sanskrit is far, far older than that.

The Harappan civilisation spread out to Arabia. Dilmun in Bahrain and Failaka in Kuwait are home to Harappan ruins. Likewise, the spread of Sanskrit to Mesopotamia is hardly surprising. Icidentally, your name is that of a Vedic God who was also worshipped by the Mesopotamians.

"One thing is a fact, that 1420 years ago, there were hundreds of idols in and around 'kaba',which were smashed and thrown in to garbage."

Ahmad Pasha, that is what Muslim invaders have emulated thousands of times in India, the land of idol worshippers. Mahmud Ghaznavi broke up the idol in Somanath into a thousand pieces and carried the rubble all the way to Ghazni and embedded the pieces of broken up idol on the steps of the masjid so that the momeen can trample on them ten times a day while going to pray and returning from prayers.

Yet, we are expected to believe Richard M Eaton when he says that less than 80 temples were destroyed in the 8 centuries of Islamic domination in India.

"No serious investigation supports "Out of India" theory"

Says the self proclaimed physicist who lacks a scientific temper.

1. Max Muller, the linguistic scholar who propounded the AIT, was not a scientist and he jumped to the conclusion that the startling similarity between Sanskrit and European languages meant that the Germans were related to Indians, at least to the Vedic Indians. It was pure speculation and not supported by anthropological evidence. The concept Aryan is LINGUISTIC AND PERTAINS TO LANGUAGE. ARYAN IS NOT RACIAL as the Europeans think it is. 

2. There is a genetic marker called M-17. It has been there in the human genome for over 50,000 years. The Indian genome has not changed at all for the past 30,000 years or more.There is no genetic evidence of any infusion of European blood into the Indian genome. 

3. The entire time frame postulated by the linguists is wrong. The river Saraswati, to which there are several references ("not boasts") was a mighty river when the Vedas were composed. 

4. The so-called Indus Valley civilisation is actually the Saraswati civilisation since the Harappan sites are dotted along the course of this extinct river which has been discovered by remote sensing technology.

5. Mass migrations of humans have taken in response to geological events. The initial exodus of homo sapiens from Africa to India and then onward to the rest of the world is supported by the distribution of the M14 genetic marker.

Pallavi Aiyar should also inform readers about the many controversies and issues in Indonesia,  economic, political, social, historical, artistic, environmental.  We never read about them, while we do know about controversies in India( i.e the whole Wendy Doniger problem)  because of the loud decibels they generate.

Indonesia( and the Philippines, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Nigeria) must have its own share of  controversial issues in all these spheres.  Including the complicated relations it must be having with its erstwhile colonial ruler, the Netherlands.

It is absolutely bizarre that we never hear of them.

"'The Aryan Invasion theory was supported by boasts in Rig Veda. Just like the boasts of muslim 'historians' about medieval massacres."

   Do those 'boasts' come from one people, at one time?  Also, from where do these people claim they originate?  Is the area identifiable, and do they long for that supposed homeland, do they contrast its weather, terrain, lifestyle et al favourably with the culture they are allegedly invading? 

Way too many gaps, loopholes. Whereas the Islamic invasions we know are unambiguous, regarding the origin and references of the invaders.

And needless to say, even if you could show a video proving there was some kind of "Aryan invasion" ( the idea was a German's, remember), it still would not mitigate one bit, the horrors of Islamic invasions and rule.

Mr Sanjay Suri , calls Mr Bhinderawale , 'mesmerieser'.

Here is a video on you-tube , of Mr Bhinderawale. This speech is reportedly by Bhinderawale, after a bus carrying his armed supporters was detained. This is what Mr Bhinderawale says in his speech.

" "je saade bas 5 baje tu pehlan na chaade te mein 5 hazar hinduan nu 1 ghante vich vadanga"

( If you do not release the bus by 5 pm,  5000 Hindus will be slaughter/chopped in one hour )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wJKfl35kMY

The government released the bus. In fact for over 3-4 years, as Mr Bhinderawale launched his violent, communal movement, targetting both Hindus and Sikhs who disagreed with him, the government kept surrendering to him and looking for ways to avoid confrontation. Even today , all political parties avoid speaking against Binderawale, hoping he just fades away, as his supporters build a narrative which is false. This is just putting your head in the sand in face of unpalatable facts. This reminds me of governments cowardice in 1981-84.

All you have to do is to read the Indian newspapers during that period 1981-84 to know the facts.

Mr Sanjay Suri also in most vicious way portrays operation blue-star as a Hindu operation. Its an abject lie. Many righteous, God fearing Sikhs, took part in it and led it. They knew what was right and what was wrong. It was an Indian operation against an insurgent group that had blatantly and brazenly challenged it. It was not against any community.

Hindus and Sikhs are part of same family.
