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

Ancient China

The most populous country in the world, published 2014 updated June 2018.

China is one of the worlds oldest civilizations with a history extending back over 5000 years. Over this period, China has gone from feudal states to a modern progressive country, yet some people still live almost as they did thousands of years ago.

As a visitor you will find everything imaginable from the most dire poverty to the greatest riches, but the major highlights for most travellers are the bright lights and cosmopolitan cities of Hong Kong, Guangdong (formerly Canton) and Shanghai.

While Beijing is the capital and is the closest city to the ‘Great Wall’, it’s not the most popular destination

Another chapter in “education dumbing people down”

When the Europeans came to the knowledge of India and it’s millions of inhabitants, life in India was very sophisticated. When the British East India Company arrived to exploit India in the 1600s, there was a 95% literacy rate across the Indian subcontinent. The British were so impressed they exported and adapted the Indian education system to suit their own country and transform the British working classes by providing universal education.

By this time, concepts in advanced mathematics and science had already arrived in Europe and the Europeans quickly claimed these ideas as their own, a form of plagiarism. Hindu knowledge gave rise to the scientific and technological advancement in the Western

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. In the Vedas, mention of horses

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

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

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
