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

Who are the Rohingya?

And what’s their problem?

Updated May 22, 2018

Most media sources and wiki describe the Rohingya as the world’s most persecuted people, a population of about 1.1 million people who live predominately in Rakhine state within Myanmar.

The Rohingya people say they are descendants of Muslims, perhaps Persian and Arab traders, who came to Myanmar generations ago but they are mostly ethnic Bengali’s who’ve been Islamised for many generations. But unlike the Buddhist community, they speak a language similar to the Bengali dialect of Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Looking back over 1000 years of history we cannot be precise. It is well documented that Southeast Asia was more influenced by Hinduism over the first few centuries of the B.C. era

The legacy of Colonialism

A grand deception and a corruption of knowledge

According to wikipedia and many dictionaries, (1.) Colonialism is the policy of a nation seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, generally with the aim of developing or exploiting them to the benefit of the colonizing country. Then it says (2.) “and helping the colonies modernize in terms defined by the colonizers, especially in economics, religion and health.”

Europe was the last region of the world to become civilised and armed with snippets of knowledge from other places they put their minds to trying to make themselves appear better, smarter than anyone else yet the behaviour of taking over someone else’s lands and possessions is a criminal

Capitalism

A cancer corrupting Humanity

Most people see capitalism is a good thing and nestled within democracy that we mask ask if this is actually a good thing for us and is it really contained within democracy?

Perhaps we should first ask what is capitalism? Capital begins with some form of asset in other words if you create an idea, you can share that idea by giving it away without expectation of reward or you can attach a reward value. But capitalism begins when you attach value to the idea or thing that you have created and can persuade someone to pay your price.

In early human society perhaps a man takes a piece of stone and transformed it into a

The Price of Progress

Avoidance, destruction and blame

We have come to think of progress as having more comforts, more technology and greater security for our long-term survival. This is what our ancestors worked for and we have led to believe that by following the directions of industrial leaders that our wealth and security are steadily improving. You should be stand back and look critically at this idea there are many flaws.

Progress in the modern sense is all about capitalism and market forces driving inventiveness and productivity. Thanks to our modern communications we can now perceive on a global scale the environmental destruction and increasing scarcity of resources with which to make things or even produce our food. The small lead to dictate

Hindu and Hindutva

Is being a Hindu ok and is Hindutva not ok and even dangerous?

Before getting into the politics, please note that anyone born or resident in India regardless of what they think or believe is Hindu because Hindu is a geographical term misappropriated to imply religion. ED

Many Hindus seem wary to be associated with Hindutva, in spite of the fact that Hindutva simply means Hindu-ness or being Hindu. They tend to accept the view which mainstream media peddled for long: ‘Hindutva is intolerant and stands for the ‘communal agenda of an extreme right Hindu party that wants to force uniform Hinduism on this vast country which is fully against the true Hindu ethos.’

Is this true? The Supreme Court

Intellectual Property

An evolutionary story

A Tumblr image

Today intellectual property has become a big business and around the world every year, billions of dollars are spent and sometimes wasted in the protection of what are essentially ideas and arrangements of words or molecules. So when we think about defining intellectual property we immediately come up against some problems such as originality as opposed to a modification of a thing or an idea.

People generally equate intellectual property with original ideas and inventions but if we step back and look at the world, once intellectual property enters the public domain it becomes public property and people are free to use or modify it at will.

If
