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

Yasmeena Ali

Giving the finger to morality

This is a story that everyone should take note to to better understand how Islam functions, it’s cruel reality and implications for Islamic host countries. Born in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime and moved to the UK as a child aged 9, Yasmeena rebelled against the nonsense that ruled her life.  Yasmeena in her speech below gives  a synopsis of Islam and living as a Muslim inside ond outside an Islamic country.

What Yasmeena describes as common to the many thousands of people born Muslim and escaped when their sensibility and appreciation of life awakened. That is something that takes great courage as you can really turn their backs on their families and communities. But what is

Winston Churchill Notes

The Poisonous Religion of Islam

Winston Churchill is most famously renowned as Britain’s world war two prime minister and the driver of Hitlers defeat. But he is also renowned as disliking with some intensity anyone not British although perhaps here ‘dislike’ is a kindness.

On Islam, Churchill writes in The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and

Lauren Southern

Why the fuss and is there justice?

Lauren Southern by all accounts is a Canadian woman with a voice, and she has gained a degree of traction in the sociopolitical sphere to the point where authorities are suddenly concerned about her. Her views are upsetting people yet those people are the namby-pamby who may be called neoliberals, who implicitly believe that multiculturalism works and the world has nothing to fear from Islam, a belief that is incredulous if you know anything of Islamic history.

Perhaps they don’t teach very much about this in schools and what they do teach is somehow glorified to give it a sense of normality although you wouldn’t want it to happen to you. The

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

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

Modi: a Leader for the World

Elected Prime Minister of India in 2014

Indians love to backbite and still continue to not understand the conspiracies meshed around them and how they have been victimized by thug elements and ideologies. Modi is the first ever genuine Leader of India that has rekindled hopes and revived spirit of India that was suppressed and boxed in by vested interests. In my view real freedom of India has only begun when Modi took over the helm of India.

Indians love to criticize in general and in specific of the only real working top leader who is changing the way India lives and works. These critics love to find flaws in Modi but never look within how imprudent they are. It
