April 2, 2015

Isn’t it amazing how rapid a build up we have seen around this rape meme for India and in it’s various tentacles and extensions lie all the ideas of western feminism especially as they pertain to the western idea of female sexuality. I am primarily referencing Udwins documentary which basically solidifies western hypothesis that Indian men […]

Mindgames on #Siachen

I’ll make this blog post short and to the point. This is not the time for lofty proclamations and an examination of issues from both sides.

This post is meant to show the common thread that exists world over between different instances of destruction of bearers of natural traditions.

This is just a smattering of visits that have been widely discussed. Visits when Rajiv Gandhi was PM are not included. I am certain that this is just the tip of the iceberg. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.

I recently encountered a Christian Blogger talking about “Om” and how the fundamentals of sound in Bible are superior. Readers will notice that this is the usual garbage spewed by converters. They persistently compare and incorporate elements from heathen traditions. This is one powerful way of destroying a tradition – incorporate the best elements and […]
