"If the dictionary defines varna as "outward appearance, exterior, form, figure, shape, colour," ............

I have clearly pointed out that varna has several meanings and is distinct from jati. If it is called Jati, it is clearly referring to race. 

Varna cannot mean colour in a society which was completely endogamous at that point of time and the four varnas were populated by people of the same ethnic stock.

@ Pankaj

Yes, everything is not hunky-dory in Spore. After the chaos of India, it comes as a huge relief to be in a place where everything works with almost clockwork precision. I also saw lots of stuff that I did not like but did not thunk of mentioning it.

Yes, Singapore is a highly regimented society. The pressure on the students is very high as is the case of the Indian middle classes. My host in Singapore teaches at a University there and I visited the campus. It is far better than our IITs in terms of ambience and amenities. However, the students seemed to lack the enthusiasm and energy of their counterparts elsewhere.

Singapore also does not take good care of their senior citizens. It was distressing for me to see infirm men and women in their 70's cleaning tables and floors in a food court in a glitzy mall.

In the final analysis, while Singapore looks like a clone of the west, it has miles to go when it comes to the way it takes care of its disadvataged citizens.

If the dictionary defines varna as ""outward appearance, exterior, form, figure, shape, colour," then four vatnas would mean four kinds of outward appearances, which would include color as well as other external features.

Just saw the shocking incident on TV. This Shiv Sena goon who happens to be an MP ought to be expelled and jailed immediately.

The MP's version is that he was protesting the quality of the food and was unaware of the religion of the staff into whose mouth he tried to stuff the chapati.

Whatever be the truth, the behaviour of this MP is absolutely disgusting and deserves to be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

DLN,

For all other posts, I almost agree with you. But on this one, I have a different view maybe due to my proximity to S'pore. There are ONLY two universities (albeit very good) in Spore. Kids find it extremely difficult to get there. The biggest fear the kids below 13 years (as surveyed) is failing the exams (meaning not doing well. The fear supercedes fears like losing a parent, or divorce of parents or losing house to natural disaster etc). Spore guys are not in music, painting, movie making etc...They just ape US.

Spore is surrounded by sea on 3 sides and Mlaysia on other. Itis easy to police it as teh criminals cannot run away after committing a crime. You cannot dry clothes in balcony (you get a fine). You cannot select teh clour of your home, Your kids cannot piss on trees (when outdoors and far away). There are no birds, butterflies, flower and fruit bearing trees ,,,,Spore cannot win a medal in any sporting event in Asia leave apart world. 

It is nothing more than a marketplace and life is extremely difficult. You will find women in 60s driving cabs on holidays.

This is off course my (rather caustic) opinion.

Friday, of course. It's a religious jehad, in Palestine, as well as in India.

And the jehadis accuse us Sanghis of not sympathizing with them. Do you want us to support these anti-nationals who want to occupy the Israeli consulate? By laws and convention, the consulate is part of Israeli territory, and occupying it is akin to attacking Israel. They know fully well, that the govt can't allow such an action, but shall still play the game in a hunt for Muslim votes.

While one is free to take a report by HRW with a bagful of salt, I think it can be safely said that he was responsible for the detah of more than "a few people".

"The meaning of the word as used in the Rigveda has the literal meaning "outward appearance, exterior, form, figure, shape, colour"

Crap. Bollocks. Utter nonsense.

1. In modern Hindi, "drishya ka VARNAN karo" means DESCRIBE the scene. Only someone as erudite as Anwaar will translate it as COLOUR the scene.

2. The castes are described as CHATURVARNA or four CATEGORIES. If it means four COLOURS, what are the colours? Is there any colour specification for each caste? The only specification for each varna is tatva or quality.

One has to blinded by prejudice to say that Rig Veda uses varna to mean colour and appearance, be it an amateur Sanskrit "scholar" like Anwaar or an Indophobic European of suspect scholarship.

The Palestine Solidarity Committee in India condemns the Indian government?'s half hearted response to brutality in Gaza

The Indian Government’s Fear of standing up to Israel: The Palestine Solidarity Committee in India condemns the Indian government’s half hearted response to brutality in Gaza
In the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament, the entire Opposition walked out as the Government blocked any resolution on Gaza. In her statement, Sushma Swaraj, the Foreign Minister, refused to condemn Israel's brutal attacks on Gaza in which more than 500 Palestinians have died. Claiming that the Indian government's position had not changed under BJP from its earlier positions, Sushma Swaraj tried hard to equate Hamas rocket fire with Israel's massive bombings in Gaza, and the ground invasion that has sharply increased the casualties. She also tried to advance the argument that Hamas should have accepted the Egyptian ceasefire proposals, without addressing the question of Israel's lifting of the inhuman blockade of Gaza. The lifting of this blockade was a part of the 2012 ceasefire, on which Israel has reneged.
All these are significant departures from the positions that Indian governments have taken in the past, even while they moved closer to Israel. This is the first time that the Government of India has openly condemned Hamas, while refusing to condemn Israel's savage bombing and invasion of Gaza. This too happened after trying to prevent a discussion from taking place in the Parliament at all, with the specious plea that both Israel and Palestine are friendly countries. Sushma Swaraj was clearly trying to obscure the simple fact that this is not a battle between two equal sides: the “friendly” Palestinian nation is actually under occupation by the “friendly” Israeli nation.

@ Ramki, post 248

I am afraid that you have got me wrong. I was not restating the AIT or saying that caste divisions were based on colour. I was saying just the opposite.

The Aryans initially comprised nomadic tribal groups and their varnas were based on their profession. It was initially trivarna and as the nomadic tribes settled down and societies became more complex a new category was added and it became a chaturvarna system.

With urbanisation and expansion, the Aryans assimilated other ethnicities over a period of time but since the caste system was still based on merit, non-Aryans were present in all the varnas.

Varna refers to attributes and not to colour.

The Lancet: Leading doctors and scientists denounce Gaza violence

**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday 22 July, 2014**

More than 20 leading doctors and scientists* from the UK and Italy denounce ongoing Israeli military aggression in Gaza in a letter to The Lancet, published today [Tuesday 22 July].

“On the basis of our ethics and practice, we are denouncing what we witness in the aggression of Gaza by Israel,” write the authors. “We ask our colleagues, old and young professionals, to denounce this Israeli aggression.”

“We are appalled by the military onslaught on civilians in Gaza under the guise of punishing terrorists. This is the third large scale military assault on Gaza since 2008. Each time the death toll is borne mainly by innocent people in Gaza, especially women and children under the unacceptable pretext of Israel eradicating political parties and resistance to the occupation and siege they impose.”

The letter states that tightening blockades imposed on Gaza by Israel in the last year have not only caused starvation and poverty for residents of Gaza, but have also resulted in a dangerous lack of access to medicine and healthcare.

“Wounded and sick people cannot leave easily to get specialised treatment outside Gaza. Entries of food and medicines into Gaza have been restricted and many essential items for survival are prohibited. Before the present assault, medical stock items in Gaza were already at an all time low because of the blockade. They have run out now.”

“As we write, the BBC reports of the bombing of another hospital, hitting the intensive care unit and operating theatres, with deaths of patients and staff. There are now fears for the main hospital Al Shifa. Moreover, most people are psychologically traumatised in Gaza. Anyone older than 6 years has already lived through their third military assault by Israel.”

“None of these are military objectives. These attacks aim to terrorise, wound the soul and the body of the people, and make their life impossible in the future, as well as also demolishing their homes and prohibiting the means to rebuild.”

“We as scientists and doctors cannot keep silent while this crime against humanity continues. We urge readers not to be silent too. Gaza trapped under siege, is being killed by one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated modern military machine. The land is poisoned by weapon debris, with consequences for future generations. If those of us capable of speaking up fail to do so and take a stand against this war crime, we are also complicit in the destruction of the lives and homes of 1·8 million people in Gaza.”

Gaza hospitals and universities are being attacked by Israel because they have become storage depots for arms and launching pads for rockets against Israel.  Hamas has deliberately embedded these in the midst of civilians because it does want the innocents to be killed by Israeli response, and in the process gain world sympathy.

The utter cowards they are, Hamas does not really care for the lives of its own people.  Had it cared, then realizing the disproportional deaths of its civilians, it would have respected Egypt's ceasefire offer the moment it was given and stopped all those subsequent deaths. They really don't give a crap about innocent Gazan lives lost to satisfy Hamas's own murderous hatred against the Jews.  

And Azmi should go and join Hamas if he feels so strongly about it.  Israel will take care of him.

I am afraid you are wrong. Kanshi Ram (Dalit Punjabi Founder of BSP) and Govindacharya (Tamil  Hindu RSSite) are easy give aways. The fact is that CCMB studies show that caste system originated only 2000 years back and before that there were no doubt many ethnic groups (all originated from the neanderthals 50000 years ago from African rift valley) but they intermingled and intermarried so much that there are no racial distinctions along caste lines.. Upper castes in South India look similar to the Dalits and the upper and lower castes of N.india differ only in lightness of skin again to do with exposure to Sunlight.

Now where are our Hindu Hating Nazist anwaars and sarojas hiding, this is what hinduism has suggested that long back well on different grounds but the point is these findings are perfectly validating what Hinduism has been practising , again not a call to ban beef altogether but reduce consumption but will our Anwaars and Sarojas then call this finding as a RSS conspiracy?

The Anwaars and sarojas are always quoting science but refuse to accept the scientific finding of CCMB that Aryan invasion theory is a myth in that all Indians of present era have the same common set of ancestors. Whenever I raised this point there is complete silence. WHy?

Caste system is a bigger topic, but there is also plenty of evidence that caste system and untouchability have existed in some socieites outside hinduism in past. In medevial Netherlands, in Pre Meiji Japan, in New zealand.. and present day yemen (100% sunni arab muslim nation) there is some kind of untouchability against some groups.

He wants all corporates and individuals to be subject to extractive taxation like in 1970s, nationalise all key industries, and help corruption and loot by politicians and then a giant program to distribute the largesse to the rest. The problem here is that PSainath does not know that there is a huge India, of nearly 40 crore people who now live in cities and do not depend on farming and they will overnight face financial crisis if all this is done. You need growth through investment and not by redistribution but the people like sainaths beleive only in Pol Pot/Stalinist/Maoist economics of crushing one segment of society and putting government and netas above civil liberties of individuals.

Tamil Poet Bharathi rightly envisioned such an exploitation to which both Congress and BJP bat for ! " Pozhuthellam engal selvam kollai povatho ? Nangal savatho ? "

Yes 40 crore Indians are in poverty after following Nehruvian socialism for 40 years and then pseudo socialism and welfare freebieist frauds like MNREGA for 10 years. You Nehruvian socialists must hang your heads in shame for failing India and stopping Indians from being self reliant and enterprenueral

As far as your pet hate, the corporates - how convienient of you to hide the fac that the PSUs aka state owned companies form a big part of corporate sector and lot of them give profits and dividends worth tens of thousands of crores which goes into treasury to give subsidies for farm sector. Not to forget that corporates now are subject to MAT, aka Minimum Alternative Tax, which means that a % of corporate profits goes right into treasury. And LIC which is where 40 crore middle class indians invest owns some 10-15% of indian corporates's equity.

Lastly on Poet Bharti, the same poet called for us to build a bridge btw tamilnadu and srilanka but you Commies scammed the UPA-1 to divide Palk straight and dig the land for a failed and disastrous project (Sethu Samudram) and huge amount of public money was wasted to help the shipping company of one socialist/dravidianist politician who has been voted more than once to power with help of Commies.

And now we all get lessons on decent behavior from a two-faced lying jihadi as*hole. How precious. Brings tears to my eyes. There is not hit and run...no one is running, unless you are referring to your bigoted self.

"Compare that with the insults Muslims are subjected to in this very forum!"

You behave like a dishonest as8hole and guess what? you will be called a dishonest a*sshole. Muslims are not special god's people must as you all like to think so. You god is not special and your effing prophet is not special and you are not special. Just like hindus and hindu gods are not special and christan gods are not special. All you religious mother*^*&(ers are all mentally delusional and believe in a "special friend" no one can see or hear. So keep your goddamn delusions to yourself and no, you will not be given respect just because you demand. f**k all you delusional religious shi*theads. Live with it. Your god is only special to you muslims, not to anyone else. Ditto to hindus and christians. This is reality. Get used to it.

Religious bigots jihadi Ars*holes who think they can commit violence to make a political point will reap the violence they sow, just like the turds in Hamas and Palestine. Weep over your effing dead bodies, you effing violent bigots. It won't stop until you start to change your bigoted selves.

In a haste to score political points, Naidu in fact has insulted Indian muslims by not wearing their traditional dress, but a Arab dress.

Back when I was growing up, we used to be entertained by a tribal fellow who had a monkey that he dressed up in a three-piece suit. The monkey would sit in a chair and smoke a cigar, and whenever it saw a woman, it would doff its hat gallantly. We were all amused at how well the monkey could ape a human being.

I am not sure why this article reminded me of my childhood. Perhaps it is because like Naidu, I am from coastal Andhra.

Yes, that must be it.

This must be an article about Hamas, which deliberately shoots rockets into Israeli cities and towns, hoping to kill as many civilians there as possible, including little children.

This must be an article about Hamas, which quotes Mohammad's last prophecy in its manifesto: "Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims kill all the Jews." Nothing there about not killing little Jewish children.

This must be an article about Pakistani Muslims who kidnap, forcibly convert and rape more than 1000 Hindu and Christian girls every year, according a Pakistani human rights organization.

This must be about Boko Haram, an Islamist organization in Nigeria, that plants bombs in crowded marketplaces and churches, killing hundreds of people, many of them children.

This must be about Boko Haram, Muslims to the last man, who kidnapped more than 200 Christian children in Nigeria, enslaving them as sexual slaves and quoting from the Koran to justify their actions.

This must be about the hundreds of Muslim terrorist animals in New York, Boston, London, Madrid, Paris, New Delhi, Mumbai, Moscow, Hyderabad, Srinagar, Chennai, Maidugiri, Nairobi, Mogadishu, Beslan, Xinjiang and countless other places who place bombs in marketplaces, trains, subways, airplanes, airports, cars, bicycles, and even in dogs and donkeys, to kill, maim and injure as many infidels and idolaters as they can.

*************

Of course not - the Prarthanas of our country are unmoved by the carnage committed by Muslims in the name of their religion, even though we Hindus have been the primary victims of this jihadi violence for 1,300 years!

In Pakistan, Hafiz Saeed tells his reptiles to prepare for "ghazwa-e-hind" and to "subjugate Hindus like Muslims have done for 1000 years". In India, these moronic intellectuals, incapable of a single original thought, ape their self-hating Western counterparts and write paens to dead Muslims even as the jihadists sharpen their swords and prepare to attack us!  We are truly a stupid people.

Ram Lala,

>> "This is the typical Mohammadan strawman...."

You would not rest until the the very worst possible meaning from a verse is derived! The Quran itself asks us to take the best possible meaning from it. I do pity you however because the life of a hate pracharak knows no rest!

Akash Verma,

>> " The root word from which varna comes means "to choose"."

"Varna is a Sanskrit term var?a. It is derived from the root v?, meaning "to cover, to envelop" (compare v?tra). The meaning of the word as used in the Rigveda has the literal meaning "outward appearance, exterior, form, figure, shape, colour" besides the figurative "colour, race, kind, sort, character, quality, property". In the Rigveda, the term can mean "class of men, tribe, order, caste", especially expressing the contrast between the aryas and das." - ( A Sanskrit-English Dictionary: Etymologically and Philologically Arranged ).

>> Typical of you to cite the deeds of a bunch of lunatic psychopaths in Iraq or Nigeria as being "the current reality

And your response is to highlight the deeds of a bunch of loonies in Pune, which resulted in a crime that, while ghastly, is astronomically smaller than the crimes in Iraq and Nigeria (and lot other places)?

Saroja,

While I'm not following this thread, what does your response in 24/D-82 have to do with the statement you are responding to

>>Yeah. Gandhi wanted all Jews to commit suicide

And again, your post 27/D-136 as a response to Ram Lala's post 26/D-126 doesn't make any sense.

Whether Gandhi supported the war effort or otherwise, it has little relevance to his suggestion to the jews. If anything, you show him in a worse light as being hypocritical as well.

D.L.Narayan,

>> "When I tell them I a Hindu, they mockingly ask, "Do you worship cows?""

Compare that with the insults Muslims suffer right here in this forum!

>> "Untouchability is a crime"

But it is still very much alive in our villages and small towns.

>> "focus on the message not on individuals."

I focussed on your hate messages shrouded in a reasonable persona.






D.L.Narayan,

>>>> "I also reminded you that a Muslim techie was killed in Pune by Hindu Rashtra goons for no other reason than the fact that he was a Muslim."
>> "It is the exception and not the rule."

Tell that to his family for which he was the sole bread winner.

>> "focus on the message not on individuals."

The message is the prevailing vilification of Muslims and whitewashing of Hindus. Of all those who are spreading that message in this forum, you seemed to be the one who was least prone to practice the "hit-and-run" tactic.

A nice gesture? Dressing up like an Arab?

Is he suggesting that Muslims are secretly Arabs at heart? You certainly seem to think so.

Wow, Amazing. How far did he take this Muslim identity? Did he "respect" the Muslim Arabic identity by going the whole way? You know what I mean... What about his wife? Did she appear in Burka and go the whole way too? What a clown. Of course the even bigger clowns are the muslims who "appreciate" this.

Come on. While enjoying biryani with Nawaz Sharif, Modi ji did tell him that such violation of cease-fire won't be tolerated and strict action will be taken.

What else you want from Man Mohan, oops I mean Modi?
