In 1960s India started its space program,

...a copy, not innovation, and alongwith defence, another area of kickback. now we have the Antrix SCAM

Today India is on verge of sending its first space mission (mangalyan) to mars.. How?

Exactly! How? Is there any money left in the pot for this mission?


In 1980s Infosys started experimenting ...

Infosys does not belong to the government, You are confusing unrelated issues, perhaps to prove your 'point'.

same idea was laughed because they said ...

Who said?

In 1990s people laughed when EM Sreedharan started his Metro project in Delhi

Metro trains have proven track record of improving regional economy.

and people joked ..

Which people? BJP? You?

In 2001, when Vajpayee started his Golden Quadrilateral project

One of the very few positive contributions by Vajpayee ( seen through completion by Congress )

people poured scorn

Who are you referring to here? Do you have any PROOF that someone actually poured scorn?

In 1990s, when cell phones were introduced

... no relation, but ultimately left us with a 180000 crore scam involving the biggest businesses, called 2G SCAM.

What you are left with, is all the markings of a SCAM in the making.

Clearly progress is being made and not before time. What Aubrey de Grey proposes makes a great deal of sense and I have followed his work for many years. I am glad the SENS foundation is attracting more and more support but it's never going to be enough and funding is vital to get the job done within the shortest possible timeframe unless we all play a part through spreading the word or donating to the SENS foundation directly.

The cost to the world of not pursuing Rejuvenative medicine is not just about the loss of productive individuals but also the suffering caused to family members and the individuals themselves as aging renders them increasingly frail. We must also factor in the unavoidable fact that in the final year of life people frequently cost the health services more than in the rest of their life put together in a futile attempt to buy a few more months and as the number of old people increases the cost of caring for them becomes increasingly unsustainable to governments worldwide. I often ask people "how long do you want to live?" they often reply "oh I think 85 is enough for me" they look at it a little differently when I say "so if you had a choice would you choose to go with cancer, a heart attack, Alzheimer's or a stroke?" This tends to focus their attention but we are conditioned to see 65 as retirement and 80 as checking out time but there is an alternative beckoning. Rejuvenative medicine will not mean extra years of frailty in a nursing home it will mean the restoration of a body which is chronologically old to the biological condition it was in 25 or 30 years earlier meaning a 75 year old would be physically restored to the level of a person in their late 40s. This is not a cure for aging by any stretch of the imagination but it is a means of tacking age related disease and frailty. An actual cure for aging is something which I feel is probably 80 to 90 years away but comprehensively repairing the damage that arises through aging to a sufficient degree is realistically only 15 to 25 years away and offers us the potential to save around 6000 people in the USA, Canada and UK alone who die each day simply because they were born a long time ago and got old I cannot imagine who many people in India suffer the same fate but clearly vastly more based on the population and I wouldn't mind betting it 12,000 to 13,000. People often see the diseases of aging and by extension aging itself as something set in stone because it's the way it's always been but the reality is that we are in all probability on the brink of developing the first generation therapies which will bring the disease of aging such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, Alzheimer's and cancer under a decisive level of clinical control, in my opinion we have a moral obligation to do so at the earliest opportunity because nobody had the right to deny people the option to live long and healthy lives without pain and suffering and to attempt to do otherwise is frankly barbaric and completely unacceptable in a civilized society.

"I don’t know about you, but travelling on a bullet train at 320 km per hour is not my top priority"

It is not about whizzing about in bullet trains. It is about providing India a world class infrastructure, about moving people and goods as fast as possible with the upcoming smart cities and industrial corridors. It is about providing jobs, developing skills and technologies. It is about planning for the future well before it arrives. 

Way back in 1960, an American president called John Fitzgerald Kennedy (heard of him?) committed his nations resources to placing a man on the moon before the decade was over, that too at a time when Americans did not even put a man into space. The spin-offs of the impact on America from JFK's committment is so enormous that it cannot be quantified. That is called vision, that is called statesmanship.

Hindutva wants to “Semitize” Hinduism, giving it a god, a book, a revelation, a prophet, an ecclesiastical order, a pontiff, a race, a language, a country (or a holy land), a history, a canon, doctrinal stability and missionary zeal. It’s an attempt to standardise, essentialise, codify and systematise a vast universe of incommensurate beliefs, practices, rituals, theologies and narratives — to render Hinduism modern and modular. "


This is from Ananya. Let us see what Romila Thapar has to say

Characteristic of the Semitic religions are features such as a historically attested teacher or prophet, a sacred book, a geographically identifiable location for its beginnings, an ecclesiastical infrastructure and the conversion of large numbers of people to the religion-all characteristics which are largely irrelevant to the various manifestations of Hinduism until recent times. Thus instead of emphasizing the fact that the religious experience of Indian civilization and of religious sects which are bunched together under the label of Hindu are distinctively different from that of the Semitic, attempts are being made to find parallels with the Semitic religions as if these parallels are necessary to the future of Hinduism.

The teacher or prophet is replaced by the avatâra of Vishnu, Rama; the sacred book is the Râmâyana; the geographical identity or the beginnings of the cult and the historicity of Rama are being sought in the insistence that the precise birthplace of Rama in Ayodhya was marked by a temple, which was destroyed by Babur and replaced by the Babri Masjid; an ecclesiastical infrastructure is implied by inducting into the movement the support of Mahants and the Shankaracharyas or what the Vishwa Hindu Parishad calls a Dharma Sansad; the support of large numbers of people, far surpassing the figures of earlier followers of Rama-bhakti, was organized through the worship of bricks destined for the building of a temple on the location of the mosque"

In other words, Ananya simply "precis writed" Romila Thapar and tries to present it as her own analysis. This is cheating.

VNK Murthi >> I do also share the apprehension of with Mehta about the feasibility of bullet train in vast India.

In 1960s when India started its space program, a number of people laughed at us and told that in a nation of cow worshippers where famines and mass deprivation was norm, we will not even be able to send baloons to the sky, leave alone satellites.. Today India is on verge of sending its first space mission (mangalyan) to mars.. How?

In 1980s Infosys started experimenting with concept of Indian computer engineers doing work for the american customers right here in India and communicating electronically and same idea was laughed because they said - this India is a place where it takes years to get a phone line and such harebrained ideas of Indian IT professionals doing work for Americans right here in India will never work.

In 1990s people laughed when EM Sreedharan started his Metro project in Delhi and people joked that a project like that will never work out in India and in a city like Delhi..

In 2001, when Vajpayee started his Golden Quadrilateral project people poured scorn and said that broad highways were not the priority and rather we should focus on other things..

In 1990s, when cell phones were introduced they were considered as expensive luxury and the left parties condemned the emphasis on the same and wanted them to be taxed as luxury items..

Looking at all this, it is clear that there will be some who always believe in "Not possible", "Wont Happen".. THese nihilists can choose to avoid the bullet trains and instead choose the beer bottles to live in their dream worlds. Or in the case of our editor it can be whisky bottles.

It is one thing to discuss whether the man is qualified or not. But if you cannot bring anyone better than Jha to discuss this, you have weakened your case considerably. The man is a crook pilfering money from ICHR(along with other eminents).

As for historicity of Mahabharata, the claim has more substance than the article suggests. The Hindu calendar begins at 3102 BCE  on a specific date. That is the beginning of kaliyuga.Very precise planetary positions are mentioned both for the beginning of kali yuga as well as for the events of the war which happened 36 years earlier.

People who are well versed in astronomy have studied the planetary positions and have verified those claims.

Now this does not prove the historicity of the epic but begs the question" WHy would someone place an imaginary event in precise settings"?

There is a lot of internal evidence in the text to suggest the core is historical. Embellishments and additions have happened over period of time but the core is historical.

And there is nothing wrong in pursuing this line of research.

Outlook simply has become a bunch of whiners. They are crying and moaning over everything. Bunch of rudalis.

Whereas the entire CV of Rahul Gandhi is about his being Son/Grandson/greatgrandson of prime ministers/leaders who ruled India collectively for 40-50 years..

So personal activities of Rahul Gandhi are much more concern to the nation than that of Vajpayee or Modi-- because, rest assured any hypothetical private affair of Shri Vajpayee or Shri Modi is not going to impact on the public lives of Indians. Whereas this is not the case w.r.to Rahul Gandhi.

"the rich become richer, the poor become poorer. Is anyone listening?"

This sounds great when one says it but upon analysis it is plain BS.

First of all, how do you define income equality? Does it mean everyone makes the same money? Or is there a n acceptable spread? Does the editor and the janitor working in Outlook have their salaries fixed equally or using the upper and lower limits of an "equality spread"?
And even more, people who are poor today dont stay poor 20 years from now. A graduate starting work today will be at the lower rung and 20 years later, he would have moved up the ladder. Was he then "poor" 20 years earlier?

People keep moving in and out of these categories. It is not static but extremely dynamic.

As for poor of today, the way to help them is not thro' doles but making them skilled in something so that they can move up the ladder. The model Mehta advocates simply eases one's conscience that he has done something but is really of no REAL help.

Misogynist >> Saving money on health and education, ( and raising defence and feminit/ religious expenditures ), is BAD policy.

Contrary to what leftists preach, the defence expenditure as a % of GDP in India is one of the lowest among large sized nation in the world.

The 2.29 lakh crore defence budget sounds large but it simply fails to register that over 60% of it goes to pay wages of soldiers and pensions of ex-servicemen and remember that these are the people who are keeping India from becoming a Afghanistan or Pakistan or Myanmar or Sri Lanka or North Korea.

So stop cribbing about defense expenses. It is not about money but about efficiently using money. Tamilnadu and Kerala (state governments) spend lot of money on public schools but much of it goes to pay wages of teachers who in turn indulge in rampant abseenteeism and lack work culture.

As long as the wages of workers in public health and public school facilities are not linked to outcomes/targets/goals, we will find that spending unlimited money on education and health is money let out in the drain.

We have already done so. 

Revelations received in a state of superconsciousness convey the real nature of the truth. The problem comes with the language used to convey it. Truth is always stranger than fiction and if what the anceint prophets and sages convey seems to be at variance with what we know today, it is because they chose to not disclose it.

One doesn't tell children the facts about "the birds and the bees" until they are ready for it. It does not mean that the parents have no idea about how humans reproduce themselves. Likewise, nobody tells primitive people that the earth is not flat or that the universe does not revolve around us.
