The Bullying Phenomenon

An age old tribal practice that blossoms in the modern world

Bullying is nothing new, it’s been going on for millennia and we also see it in the animal kingdom stemming from primal survival instincts and those who bully others today operate not so much because they consciously decided this was their role, but because of the unique circumstances or karma governing their lives.

When two animals are hungry and there is one morsel of food, they will without the benefit of higher intelligence fight to the death and males traditionally compete for females in a similar manner. But us humans have been gifted with a higher intelligence, we can take a morsel of food and devise ways of

The calls to accept and normalise paedophilia

Before getting into this argument, we must remember that paedophilia has been going on for centuries in some form or other. In many cultures girls became married soon after their menstrual cycle commenced but there is very little record or evidence to support any ideas that what we refer to as paedophilia today existed before the rise of the Greek and Roman empires. The civilised world that stretched from the Mediterranean, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia are thought to have been much better organised and responsible.

Under the Greeks and Romans who used slaves to create their empires, a new kind of indolence and leisure developed along with a disregard for life

The Rationality of Violence

Why are we so aggressive?

When we consider that war and violence have been a significant trait throughout modern history and as we live in a world at war today, it’s a question that everyone should consider at some point in their life.

From the perspective of yoga and the thoughtfulness that gave rise to Sanatana Dharma, knowing oneself as a part of life and a part of existence produces a human society and indeed a civilisation to know life and further.

This is about having a population of individuals who take what they absolutely from nature and do what must be done in terms of environmental protection and living harmoniously with each other.

It is from a position

Mother Theresa

Saint of fraud

Published on: 7 Sep 2016, updated 16 July 2018

Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun who many believe devoted her life to helping India’s poor and she was declared a saint in a canonization Mass held by Pope Francis in the Vatican on September 4 2016.

Because so many actually revere Mother Theresa, it can appear insensitive to fact-check her more odious pronouncements, but any journalist should check the facts and not just be a voice of the establishment as there’s more to this story.

Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu was born in August 26, 1910 in Skopje which was then part of Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire. This was a volatile period and she lived in the shadow of the Mother Teresa

Max Muller

An anti Hindu scholarly bigot

It is true that Friedrich Max Muller, the German born philologist and Orientalist, spent most of his life studying the Vedas. It is also true that he edited and published a 51 Volume Sacred Books of the East. But few people knew that he was an employee of the East India Company who started translating the Vedas to specifically denigrate them and in so doing help to break India.

“The Christianity of our nineteenth century will hardly be the Christianity of India. But the ancient religion of India is doomed—and if Christianity does not step in, whose fault will it be?” ~ Max Muller

As he matured, he changed his views a little. But even

Remembering 1947

The year of Partition and political expediency

Over the past ten years it’s been estimated that over one million girls have been sexually assaulted, raped and forced into prostitution by gangs of Muslim men in Britain alone. Throughout this time the authorities have been trying to be nice to the peaceful Muslims and pretend that this is not happening. All these young women have been denied justice but the situation is becoming so bad that the authorities are being forced to act. Investigative journalists have done the hard work of exposing these gangs, but the authorities are extremely lenient toward these criminals.

It’s not only in Britain, with the influx of Islamic refugees and migrants along with a hard

Crime and Punishment

Laws are interpreted differently for the rich and poor

Published on: 4 May 2015, updated May 31 2018

Is there such a thing as just and unjust? In the animal world life is all about the survival of the fittest and the human society strong lording over the week and those wanting power taking advantage over those less powerful as normal, or at least it would be if we reduced ourselves to the same level as animals.

We are in some ways the most creative species able to transform the materials of the planet into technological things and we have recognised herself as being a collection of communities, societies and civilisations to make up a collective civilisation with a

Defeating the Devil Within

Represented by the belief systems of the world

Let’s be clear that any idea of a devil, of an antichrist like all the gods are man-made constructions. The real division is about tangible knowledge versus belief. Belief systems tend to argue that life is only meaningful when seen from their particular point of view. But the key word is belief which pales in comparison to common sense and real knowledge.

When we look at the world, even as you read this text your visual perception only picks up elements in the detail and your mind completes the picture of the words even before you begin to interpret them, and how you interpret is dependent on how your

Islam: A Destructive Force

Media hides the dangerous intentions of Islam

Img by Nader Dawah

In May of 2018 there was an unforgettable and important event in the world. A French manifesto called for passages of the Koran promoting violence on unbelievers to be deleted. This has sparked outrage among Muslims who claim their religion is being unfairly ‘put on trial’.

The rationale for these passages to be deleted was to take a practical step to combat rising anti-Semitism and attacks on Jews by Islamic migrants into France and help quell Quran-based Islamic violence that’s become widespread over Europe.

The incident should have been promoted and expanded throughout the world, but the media have been almost silent, their

The Task of Reviving India

Sweeping educational changes and responsibility needed

To the casual observer and the European educated, this idea seems strange because India is a country that everyone chooses to mock without any clear rationale beyond this fact: that Islam and the colonialists having raped and pillaged the country have not been able to destroy what is quintessentially Hindu.

The word/name Hindu of course is an abbreviation of Hindustan referring to the geographic area and not what is seen as Hindu religion, another erroneous concept bandied about by experts whereas the proper term for Hindu spiritual understanding is Sanatana Dharma.

What is the problem of India and why does it need reviving?

India needs to be restored according to the precepts of Sanatana
