There is something in caste, so far as it means blood; such a thing as heredity there is, certainly. Now try to [understand] — why do you not mix your blood with the Negroes, the American Indians? Nature will not allow you. Nature does not allow you to mix your blood with them. There is the unconscious working that saves the race. That was the Aryan's caste. Mind you, I do not say that they are not equal to us. They must have the same privileges and advantages, and everything; but we know that if certain races mix up, they become degraded. With all the strict caste of the Aryan and non-Aryan, that wall was thrown down to a certain extent, and hordes of these outlandish races came in with all their queer superstitions and manners and customs. Think of this: not decency enough to wear clothes, eating carrion, etc. But behind him came his fetish, his human sacrifice, his superstition, his diabolism. He kept it behind, [he remained] decent for a few years. After that he brought all [these] things out in front. And that was degrading to the whole race. And then the blood mixed; [intermarriages] took place with all sorts of unmixable races. The race fell down. But, in the long run it proved good. If you mix up with Negroes and American Indians, surely this civilisation will fall down. But hundreds and hundreds years after, out of this mixture will come a gigantic race once more, stronger than ever; but, for the time being, you have to suffer. The Hindus believe — that is a peculiar belief, I think; and I do not know, I have nothing to say to the contrary, I have not found anything to the contrary — they believe there was only one civilised race: the Aryan. Until he gives his blood, no other race can be civilised. No teaching will do. The Aryan gives his blood to a race, and then it becomes civilised. Teaching alone will not do. He would be an example in your country: would you give your blood to the Negro race? Then he would get higher culture.

------------------------------------------------------------------

From the Vedic story of Satyakama Jabali to Mahadaji Shinde every page of our history shows that the ancient Ganges of our blood has come down from the altitudes of the sublime Vedic heights to the plains of our modern history fertilizing much, incorporating many a noble stream and purifying many a lost soul, increasing in volume and richness, defying the danger of being lost in bogs and sands and flows to-day refreshed and reinvigorated more than ever. All that the caste system has done is to regulate its noble bood on lines believed-and on the whole rightly believed-by our saintly and patriotic law-givers and kings to contribute most to fertilize and enrich all that was barren and poor, without famishing and debasing all that was flourishing and nobly endowed.

What is lost in the discussion is, appreciation of a very tight bowling by Jadeja (and Bhuvi) from other end.  Because the English batsmen could not score from that end, they decided that they can score only on Ishant.  Hence they started to take risky chance on Ishant's bowling and paid the price.  This reminded me of West Indies tour of India in late fifty.  Indian batsmen hated to play against Gilchrist so much that they tried to score on Wesley Hall's bowling and gave him more wickets.

IS it not the time now that India has the kind of US system of senate vetting of all positions at any designated major institutions? When such appointments are publicly scrutinised there will be a clear transparency and people in their lives intending to aspire for high positions will be very careful about their own behaviour. It will be an automatic corrective mechanism for keeping the highner echelons of Govt cleaner.

''Corrupt judge charge: Katju poses six questions to ex-Chief Justice of India

NEW DELHI: Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju, who alleged that three Chief Justices of India made "improper compromises" during UPA rule in allowing a judge under corruption cloud to continue in office on Tuesday, posed six questions to one them, Justice R C Lahoti, on the issue.

Katju asked if after receiving the adverse IB report against the additional judge, Lahoti, who was then Chief Justice of India, called a meeting of the three-Judge Supreme Court Collegium, consisting of himself, Justice Y K Sabharwal and Justice Ruma Pal, and the Collegium, having perused the IB report recommended to the Government of India not to extend the 2-year-term of that additional judge?

"  I asked you whether you are being disrespected by Muslims because you are an idol worshipper."

Not in India but on several occasions in the middle east.  Taxi drivers often ask, "Are you a Muslim?" When I tell them I a Hindu, they mockingly ask, "Do you worship cows?" In Europe or far east or anywhere else, nobody cares what my religion is. 

"As I said, the current reality is that Dalits are still being treated as untouchables in much of our countryside."

Untouchability is a crime and has been outlawed. In many parts of Noth India, medieval practices prevail. But, we have come a long way and Dalits have progressed a lot and have risen to the very top. Some Dalits even function as priests. The current reality is that soon, the last vestiges of this heinous practice will be eradicated.

"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. The population of Muslims vis-a-vis Hindus is on the rise in glaring contrast to the minorities in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

" In any case it has been a learning experience for me even if I had to be rough at times to expose the real D.L.Narayan."

Again, I have to remind you to focus on the message not on individuals. I am insignificant and it doesn't matter what you think of me or if you have "exposed" me.

>>Yeah. Gandhi wanted all Jews to commit suicide

When England went to war in September, 1939, she included India in the declaration without consulting her. This undiplomatic reminder of their subjection offended the Indians. Gandhi and most of the Congress leaders, however, sympathized with the Allies, and when Nehru issued a statement saying “a free India” would willingly associate with other free nations, Gandhi supported it even though it was not entirely consistent with his total faith in nonviolence. “My aim is not to be consistent with my previous statements,” he observed, “but to be consistent with the truth.”

But England refused to take the hint and offered India nothing. Congress then decided not to aid Britain in the war. Some Indian leaders wanted to turn on Britain while she was under assault by the Nazis, but Gandhi said, “We do not seek our independence out of Britain’s ruin.”

In 1940 Congress again offered to support England if India were granted freedom. But the Prime Minister, the same Winston Churchill who earlier had said that Gandhi had to be crushed, was adamantly opposed to such a trade. One of the reasons he offered was that he would not turn over power to an Indian government unacceptable to the Moslems.

Congress now threatened a campaign of civil disobedience, but Gandhi, unwilling to weaken England while she was under heavy attack, confined it to having Congress leaders speak out against the war and go to jail. Congress cooperated, as did the British, and over twenty-three thousand persons were arrested.

When Japan joined the Nazi cause in December, 1941, the situation changed dramatically. India’s cooperation or noncooperation could now seriously affect the war in the Pacific. Britain immediately freed some of the political prisoners, while Gandhi advised the greatest nonviolent resistance campaign in history if Japan attacked.

Why is Mr. Katju being lambasted at all for the "delay" ? After all it was he who first brought the corrupt reputation of judge Ashok Kumar to the notice of the then CJI Lahoti which resulted in an enquiry and the IB report. The then system comprising the corrupt combine of the UPA (mainly the Congress and the DMK) and a supine CJI mocked at the findings and did not take follow up action. Instead it is the then government, personified by Manmohan Singh and the retinue of three CJIs who gave extension after extension and finally a confirmation to Askok Kumar, who should be hauled over the coals for their deliberate complicity and not Mr. Katju for the perceived inaction.

Whatever one might say about Mr. Katju, he is a no nonsense, straight talking Individual. If you watched Karan Thapar's TV  with him on Headlines Today on 21st. July you would have been struck by his "Yes" or "No" and clear, unequivocal answers to all  the probingly leading questions put to him. No prevarications, no waffling, no dissimulations.

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. Your penchant for putting Muslims down and whitewash Hindu deeds is pathological and the product of a very sick mind. While there are several hatemongers in this forum, my interst in dialoguing with you arose from the fact that you presented yourself as a moderate, mature and knowledgeable man.

"Being excluded is even worse than originating from the feet of the Creator, isn't it? In any case Dalits do resent such depictions."

1. In the Vedic age, 5000 years ago, Aryans were basically a tribal, nomadic people. Their society excluded outsiders. The present day Dalits are descendents of the non-Aryans of that period which lived in different settlements and had their own lifestyles, religion and languages.

2. The Dalits have every reason to feel aggrieved and Hindus are ashamed of the way Dalits were treated. However, these practices did not originate from the Purusha Sukta.

(1) This is very commendable win by Team India. I wish to convey my congratulations to all members of winning Indian team. Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja and M. Vijay deserve special mention for their winning contributions. If we have to win the Test series, our bowlers will have to continue their good performance and our top order batsmen, and Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli in particular, have to contribute in a big way. (2) Indian pitches, unlike the pitches in countries like England, South Africa, Australia, West Indies, are rarely pace-bowler friendly pitches. Hence we cannot expect good performances from our medium pace bowlers on such pitches. But I always used to wonder why our pace bowlers were not able to perform up to their potential abroad (in England, South Africa, Australia) where their pace bowlers have often troubled our batsmen, but our pace bowlers did not take many wickets. Of course, there were very good performances like that of Ajit Agarkar (in Australia), Shreesanth (in South Africa), but such performances were only a few and far between. (3) Let us hope that in future our pace bowlers are well trained to do well abroad and they win matches for us.
Best wishes to Team India.

"We are a country of Gandhi and Buddha. We can't keep this silence forever. " -- 

Well, I do not know how Buddha could be dragged here, since Bamiyan Buddha, the last relic of Buddha on earth, was devastated by Islamic followers some years back while the world of Islam kept their silence.

But I know this for sure as has been recorded in the history of Modern India, that when Jinnah's Muslim hordes unleashed their murderous "Direct Action Day" on the local Hindus in Calcutta, Gandhi kept his total silence on that event. And the Hindus were then at the receiving end of Islamic jehad and paid with their lives and family, women and children everyone, heavily.

In Nigeria, an Islamist group kidnaps hundreds of school girls and threatens to auction them off. Their crime - daring to go to a school.

I recall an allusion by Ramki to a black cat in a dark cave. The time has come to emerge from the darkness and smell the coffee.

Come to think of it, it is better to remain in darkness than confront the unpleasant "current realities."

If these couples represent India, that's good news. But with so much bigotry and narrow mindedness that we see everyday, or what is reported in the news, it seems these are exceptions to the rule of parents trying to control their childrens' destiny, honour killing, murders and rapes. The quote from Chitra Banerjee at the end of the passage is perhaps related to some small pockets or urban India. For the rest, it is murder as usual.

" Ghulam Nabi is a real Ghulam of some Nabi in Palistine"

Nabi refers to prophet Mohammed. Ghulam Nabi is literally slave of the Prophet.

Azad is an oxymoron since this gentleman is one of the dynasty's most trusted slaves.

" This distinction is a new and convinient invention. Varna does not mean free choice. It means color or outward appearance."

1. Each word has a distinct etymology. Jati and Varna were not coined recently and occur frequently in ancient scriptures.

2. Jati is what is acquired by birth. One cannot change the circumstances of one's birth.

3. One of the several meanings of varna is colour. It also can mean property, quality, classification and so on.

For example, gold is called su-varna meaning excellent properties - does not corrode, is lustrous, easily malleable and rare. Hence, it has high value and is referred to as suvarna.

In Khaleeji Arabic, the traditional way of asking "How are you" is "Shlonik" literally "What is your colour". [From Shu (what) Lon (colour) suffix ik (your)]. Only a fool will interpret shlonik as an enquiry about one's colour.

Qualities like skills, hard work, strength, intellect, aptitude, erudition are not inherited. They are acquired. One cannot belong to the Kshatriya varna if one if not strong and lacks martial skills even if one belongs to the Kshatriya jati by an accident of birth.

There seems to be some needless confusion regarding varna and jati because in English, the word caste is used for both. They are not synonyms.

Example: In the pre computer era, a mouse was a rodent. Today it means both the rodent and a mechanical pointing device. Meanings change with time.

To assert that jati and varna are identical is plain ignorance and to term the distinction as a "new and convenient invention" is a cobination of ignorance and malice.

Mosul: Islamist militants have taken over a monastery in northern Iraq, one of the country’s best-known Christian landmarks, and expelled its resident monks, a cleric and residents said on Monday.

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) insurgents stormed Mar (Saint) Behnam, a 4th century monastery run by the Syriac Catholic church near the predominantly Christian town of Qaraqosh, on Sunday, the sources said.

“You have no place here anymore, you have to leave immediately,” a member of the Syriac clergy quoted the militants as telling the monastery’s residents.

He said the monks pleaded to be allowed to save some of the monastery’s relics but the fighters refused and ordered them to leave on foot with nothing but their clothes.

Misogynist >> The media is hiding the fact that this conflict is between RELIGIONISTS.

Pure BS. Russia (and China) want a NWO with end of US Dollar hegemony. USA (and Ukraine and NATO allies) want the continuation of the EWO (Existing world order) and US Dollar hegemony. Russia wants to use energy as the NWO currency as it has plentiful fossil fuel, US allies are all deficit in energy and want EWO to continue. As simple as that but some morons do not understand how modern economy is dead without fossil fuel supplies.

Singapore model of secularism is also excellent. The state is not atheist (like north korea) n or there is any appeasement of minorities and talk of reservation. All are allowed to practise their faiths and hindus are safer in singapore than in parts of secular india (like kashmir or mizoram). And yes muslims have all their religious rights at same time will not be shouting about jehad or ISIS or sharia because the same night they shout it they will be locked up in prison and keys thrown away.

"whitewashing Hindu history and vilifying Muslim rulers."

Dear jihadi asswipe, it is an accepted fact that Aurangazeb and Tipu sultan among other muslim rules explicitly made destruction of hindu places of worship as their policy and built mosques on top of them. You jihadi shi*heads won't accept the truth and reality and you have the gall to claim that people are "vilifying muslim rulers"?  You think everyone else but you jihadi lowlives are idiots? Just continue with your shit and see what happens in due course.

Anwaar >> A new way of thinking about Islam

Please ask the Imam on what he feels about:

* Need for removing theocracy and ensuring 100% secularism in Saudi Arabia

* Need to allow places of worship of other faiths in Saudi arabia, in places like mecca. We have mosques built in hindu holy cities like Varanasi and there are no laws to prevent building mosques in christian holy places, so why cannot we have a synanogue , church, temple in mecca.

* How about the Rulers of saudi arabia who build and enjoy their fortunes on back of hard work of kaffir (hindus, christians etc) greeting hindus on diwali and christians on christmas?

I am looking forward for all this.. Believe UAE made small step by allowing church and temple to be built but that is small place. KSA must secularise and allow other faiths to prosper and only then people will understand the tolerance message of prophet.

Waiting for your CAIR to work on this immediately...

" And as I said scriptures of all religions can be viciously attacked, "

As the "Secular" asshol*s in India like to say "there are no scriptures in hinduism" which is mostly true, but muslims swear by the Quran and the prophet, and the words written in the Quran explicitly say that violence on non believers is acceptable. Dishonest lowlives like this CAIR islamist piece of sh*t need to accept that to reform islam they need to accept that there are parts of the Quran that must be eschewed. Simply yelling "idiot" and "islamophobe" is a stupid game for low IQ dishonest sh*thead jihadis. You can continue that but understand that no one is fooled by your vigorous protestations.

 Anwaar >> Nobody is as harsh a critic of Saudi Arabia as I.

If what you said is really true, ensure in next 24 hours that :

* CAIR issues a statement demanding that all islamic theocracies in West Asia become 100 % secular and

* The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is dismantled and the oil riches placed under UN control for 10 years and

* The nation put under UN Control to transition into a secular republic and

* Then after that period oil riches can be handed over to the country

* Also a leading city of saudi arabia - Mecca or Riyadh must be announced as world center of religious harmony and we should build beside mosque a wonderful place of worship of every major faith in world..

Look forward to day when the mosques co exist with churches, gurudwaras, buddhist and hindu temples in mecca and riyadh and thus prove the real message of prophet mohammed.

Once you ensure this, whole world will stand up and ensure that israel withdraws from gaza and other such places...

CHittaranjan >> Some people never stop complaining even when they have everything on the platter!

That defines the DNA of all left liberals.. Whiners who play the victimhood card everytime they get an opportunity. But never offer concrete solutions to prevent victims in first place.

I had immense respect for this lady (Pepsi CEO) but not sure now... honestly no one gets everything in life and the whole fuss seems to be a move to distract from the questionable business practices of Pepsico Inc and similar Food MNCs. Latch on to feminism and political correctness when you are questioned about the role of Big Food in monopolising our dining tables.

So much media hype about a wedding between two atheist  urban professionals living in Eastern/South Eastern India.. Their social conditioning and living styles are similar and this cannot be called as a marriage of poles by any means. Food habits of families hardly matter, the woman could very well be feasting on steak and shark fin soup much before marriage and even if she had married to some yuppie in same family.

 Mr CAIR Pracharak ANWAAR,

Kashmiri Pandits are orignal sons of soil of Valley and they predate the Kashmir valley muslims by 2 millenia or even more.. Whereas palestinians are not predating the jews of israel and jews predate muslims by 2 millenia or even more..

Kashmir Pandits after being ethnically cleansed are not forming Hamas like organizations and firing missiles on the valley muslims whereas your loved Palestinians voted hamas a terrorist agency that is firing weapons on israel and jews...

Lastly Palestinians mostly follow Islam which itself is a follow up version of Judaism and Islam asked for people to show tolerance to judaism and adapts its monotheism concepts. Whereas the valley muslims and their faith has no direct relation with the hindu faith of pandits and the valley muslim's current version of non sufi hardline wahhabism preaches hate against idol worshippers.

So KASHMIR PANDITS ARE NOT PALESTINIANS, stop your silly arguments and admit that your islamofascist and islamosupremacist leanings have no place in India.

Meanwhile, muslim paper in India praises ISIS militats , who have unleashed forced conversionsand genocide of minorities in Mosul.

"Akhbar-e-Mashriq is widely regarded as a balanced and sober Urdu daily published from Kolkata but recently, it ran an uncharacteristically sensational front page with the banner headline, Islami Shiddat Pasand Hamare Haqeequee Mohafiz ("Islamic extremists our real protectors"). "

The Islamic media and islamists will unleash another bloody division of Hindustan, just as MuslimLeague-jinah did if Hindus continue to act  and behave as idiots while they have being exterminated from all now muslim majority areas of Indian subcontinent.
