Rembering Vlad Dracula

And his responsiveness to Muslim invasions

Is there any relevance to this historical figure, a man who has been vilified across the world as a monster, a tyrant, a bloodthirsty psychopath and of course a vampire in the realm of popular entertainment?

One must realise that troubled times breed men and women who act ‘abnormally’ to deal with the various shapes of adversity. What the teenage Vlad Țepeș (the second son of Vlad Dracul, who became the ruler of Wallachia in 1436) was dealing with were the divisions of a newly Christianised Europe and rule by fear. As Christianity took root, society became more pleasantly capitalist for some with a more clearly defined class structure or cast

Divided we Fall - United we Stand

Negotiating life and discovering Dharma

By Udaya Charan Shrestha

“Spirit is one, although variety exists, its oneness is found within the light of pure consciousness. Due to misuse of independence the soul separates from this light and descends to this realm, the world where spirit mixes with matter, a world of duality. Sanskrit language encapsulates this “separation from the light” in the words “dvi” and “dva” meaning “two”. “Vi” expresses “separation” and “D” expresses “light” combined they produce “dvi” whose primordial meaning is to be “separated ( vi ) from the light ( d )”.” ~ James Robinson Cooper

This adage ‘United we stand, divided we fall’

India : impressions of all times

“The visible world passing though the passage of time is continually changing and morphing into new forms, shapes, realities and surrealistic ideas.” We have evolved from being hunter gatherers and around the world people have evolved into a mixture of believers and seekers. The majority of people in India have always been seekers which gave rise to scientific enquiry leading to a clear understanding of the world.

At the core of this enquiry was the question “who am I?” In the modern world many people simply accept the religious or state-sponsored answer that an individual is a body and mind. But the serious Inquirer learns that body and mind physical, borrowed from the

Horses in Ancient India

An archaeological doubt not only being proved, but expanded to chariots and other technology

Etruscan chariot 600 BC

Horse and chariot remains have been found in India dating to 4000 BC upsetting mainstream archaeologists who say that the earliest archaeological evidence for the domestication of the horse comes from sites in Ukraine and Kazakhstan, dating to approximately 3500–4000 BC. By 3000 BC with most irrefutable evidence of domestication from sites where horse remains were interred with chariots in graves of the Sintashta and Petrovka cultures c. 2100 BC. They believe that domestication of horses only in central Asia prior to 3500 BC and that horses never set foot in India until around 1600 BC.

According to some Christian sources,

The Why of Denigrating India

The continuance of India bashing

As an introduction to this article, please note that India has been an occupied country primarily by the Muslims and the British who despite inflicting damage that would have destroyed lesser countries, India continues to not only survive but flourish. The Western narrative about India ignores these unpleasant truths and it seems that the world cannot forgive India for not giving up. Within India, a distorted westernised education system has corrupted the minds of the masses and it’s alleged that the Gandhi family who aspires to regain power promotes unrest in the country for personal economic and social advantages. Unfortunate girls like Priyanka Chopra educated by British opinion about India, without any sense of national

Tracing our evolution

Entering the modern era

About this time, ice sheets as much as two miles deep are thought to have covered much of the northern hemisphere and a dramatic climate change is about to take place.

There are people on all continents, in Europe the population extending across Doggerland and perhaps parts of what we would recognise as today’s United Kingdom and Western Europe are hunter gatherers. They are dark skinned and little is known of their evolution: they are mixing with Neanderthal and peoples migrating from the East where life was more evolved.

The ‘out of Africa theory’ has been disproved, there may have been some small amount of migration from Africa

Dharma

The art and science of living while supporting life

Published on: 23 Jun 2016 updated June 8 2018

Dharma is described as a noun meaning to live by the eternal law of the cosmos that is inherent in the very nature of things. For many people, this may be too much of a stretch of the imagination, but it can be redefined as living in accord or in harmony with nature.

The idea of Dharma arises from Yoga and Hinduism because the ancient yogis were able to identify and relate with nature. Unfortunately this is beyond any people’s ability today because we live in such a consumer driven world where personal identity and happiness is dependent on external phenomena.

But

Origin of Fair Skin

Have you ever wondered where light skin color originated?

It’s only in the past couple of thousand years that would become aware that other populations have variances in skin colour and in today’s multicultural world, these colours are mixing. We must remember that regardless of skin colour we are still the same species and what separates us most are the ways in which we think.

Our distant ancestry remains theoretical and as our science and technology improves, some theories are becoming probabilities yet we are far from any actual proof. The best we can hope for is a probability that satisfies the majority. In terms of human evolution within the past hundred thousand years, we know of Neanderthal, African,

Where We Live

Our universe

We humans are prone to taking ourselves very seriously and to prove our self-worth, we come up with all sorts of ideas, philosophies and beliefs but then we attach special significance to them as if they were going to make the supreme difference in not only the way we live our lives, but will affect the harmony of the universe.

When we consider the age of the universe which many scientists believe (but don’t know), they calculate about thirteen billion years and of course a billion on human terms is an exceedingly unimaginable number. Intellectually we may understand the immensity but because it is so immense, we have no way of relating to our current existence.

A Billion

The immensity of numbers

Published on: 31 Mar 2015 updated June 5th, 2018 1,000,000,000,000 = one billion in long scale is a million million. In short scale, a billion is only a thousand million and you can get an idea from the graphic…

The true story about a Billion Dollars but it could be a billion anything and while this story is about the USA, it can be any country and too true to be very funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, know they refer to the short scale and think about whether you want the politicians spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but
