How Will the World End?

Many say the end is nigh

Doomsday forecasters and prophets like Nostradamus have forever been predicting the end of the world. The current end of days forecast was for December 2012, but that failed to happen yet extinction seems inevitable to many.

There are many theories about how life on Earth may end, they include being struck by an asteroid or comet, gamma-ray bursts from some far off dying sun, a shift in the Earth’s magnetic poles or global warming, a fire that most of us are adding fuel to.

We know that Earth has a finite life as does our entire solar system, but this life is counted in billions of years and it seems logical that if we

The Darkening Age

How Christians won the brutal culture war against Rome

Set against what we believe we know, The Darkening Age is the largely unknown story of how a militant religion comprehensively and deliberately extinguished the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in centuries of unquestioning adherence to ‘one true faith’. Despite the long-held notion that the early Christians were meek and mild, going to their martyr’s deaths singing hymns of love and praise, the truth, as Catherine Nixey reveals, is very different. Far from being meek and mild, they were violent, ruthless and fundamentally intolerant.

Comparing early Christians to todays suicide bombers, Catherine describes how Christianity became the historical winner against Roman polytheism, non-specialists often have a distorted impression of how

Vasco Da Gama

And the sea route to India

De Gama at the Cochin court

The mainstream narrative that most of us learned in school was that Vasco de Gama was the first European to discover the sea route to India and this is still taught in many schools around the world and astonishingly in India even when it has been disproved.

But there are many untruths in history and the influence of India can can be seen across Europe and the world today. A lesser-known point is that Indian elephants did much of the heavy lifting for the Greek and Roman empires and that Asiatic lions were more likely to feature in the Roman arena than African lions as most historical

Women of India

Are Hindu women as unsafe as the media proclaims?

“Shasana Sundari”, a women writing a letter in the Jalasangi village temple in Karnataka from the period of Kalyani Chalukyas. At that time, rule was purely on Hindu principles. Muslim, Christian or western narrative did not exist. It clearly proves, women in India knew reading and writing. Image credit to Arun Bharadwaj

In so many families today, the children think they know better than the parents and in most societies believe they know more than the most highly educated. In our world of nations where it is now becoming increasingly evident that India is the mother of all nations, because India is the humble mother she is

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

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

Saving India – Saving the world

In researching not only Indian history but the history of the world it seems we have checked enough boxes and this time that some thought was given to compiling all this information with references in a logical and meaningful manner then making approaches to the various authorities around the world to begin the correcting of school textbooks.

The narrative may likely proceed to point out the correlation between the very ancient occupation of India and the similarities with Africa of 1.3 million years ago, the before and after Mount Tober incident and the evidence of simple agriculture originating in India followed by the spread of civilisation, knowledge and technology from India around the globe.

Hindutva, Neoliberalism and Secularism

The political dilemma of India

Actually this is not India’s problem alone, it is a problem for the whole world to consider since we are all heading in the same direction. We are all governed by neoliberal democracies who claim to be secular yet because of the fear generated by Islam, the Muslims are seen as a special case must be appeased because within neoliberalism, this is simply the game of politics and a response to fear without any reference or understanding of the underlying reality.

So let’s take a closer look at the meanings of these three words:

Hindutva is an ideology seeking to establish the hegemony of Hindus and the Hindu way of life. It

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

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
