The ideological battle over the states of Jammu and Kashmir
Pakistanis sacrifice goats before aircraft take off to ensure a safe flight.
The issue of ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ otherwise known as Islam’s Prophetic war against India is a subject that Islamic clerics don’t wish to discuss and something that indigenous Hindus of India know next to nothing about let alone the rest of the world where minds are preoccupied with other global disasters.
It is also a problem that confounds Indian politicians, academics and those in the military as Pakistan’s Military-Mullah Establishment continues supporting extremists with a clear intent of taking over Kashmir and in doing so provoking an all out war with India.
Pakistan is renowned for sponsoring terrorist groups

A movement of ideas in our early history
In our search for truth about our origins, the 32000-35000 year old Idol of Narasimha, an avatar of Lord Vishnu found in Germany shatters theories opening new windows for investigation and understanding. After all, we were supposed to be uncivilised and unconnected hunter gathers back then.
Archaeologists exploring a cave system in the Lonetal area near Ulm, Germany had found many representations of birds, horses, turtles and single lions, but the lion man idol made from the tusk of a mammoth in the form of a human body with a lion head created a stir across the world.
This discovery created a lot of attention in the archaeological circles of Europe. It

This ancient ruined city preserves great secrets
Cultural exploration or romantic getaway
Spread over 35 hectares, Hampi was once a great city and capital of the Vijayanagara Empire in the south Indian state of Karnataka. It’s dotted with numerous dilapidated and ruined temple complexes where you find wondrous ancient arts.
The period of the Vijayanagara Empire is considered an age of prosperity in South India. In the 14th century CE, travelogues written by visitors including ambassadors and authors of the time provide ample proof of a vibrant era. Agriculture was the main sustenance and the river Tungabhadra was the life blood of the capital city.
“After Timur’s sack of Delhi, North India remained weak and divided up. South India

Moenjo Daro Site
It is well past time to rewrite our history textbooks and this page is based on a work by Sudheer Birodkar and Debbie Azzopardi posted in 1998. Sudheer Birodkar also has other pages linked here asking what was India like? What did the ancient Indians wear? What did they eat? Did kids play with toys? Did they go to school?
Ancient India or Bharatha once stretched from Persia or modern day Iran to the Pacific coast of Cambodia and Vietnam. This was never a unified country as we think of countries today, rather it was a collection of states functioning

Ten Things a Hindu Can Do When Using English Language
Ramnagar Ram Leela,Painting By Sunil Kr Vishwakarma Jee
Hindus meaning the people of the Indian Subcontinent have been severely challenged over the past 1400 years. The region has been invaded and a great deal of their culture distorted or destroyed. The land we call India today is a remnant of the ancient Hindustan that stretched from Burma (Myanmar) to Persia.
It is from this broad region that language, ideology, numbers and our sciences originated. All these things have been taken around the world and used for divergent purposes yet the Hindu origins have been sidelined, derided and even despised.
1400 years of destruction have left India battered and bruised,

India’s loss to foreign invaders
Awake IndiaJai Shiva Consecration of AdiYogi in Coimbatore Youtube
Over 1400 years, India has been raped and exploited by foreigners with different ideologies. It’s somehow ironic that the underlying ideologies of the Arabs, the Greeks, British, French and others are all based of seeds of knowledge from India that have been genetically manipulated.
From a psychological perspective, these invasions are akin to the children attacking their mothers for India is the mother of all nations. Many historians disagree, but the scientists agree that without India’s contribution of knowledge and wisdom, our world could not have developed as it has.
An ancient civilization where Dharma prevailed, India consisted of many polarized societies led by

The winds of change
In a country of 2.3 billion people where corruption thanks to foreign intervention has long been institutionalised, the government faced a huge challenge. Because many previous governments have for so long has often worked against the interests of the people, a huge black market developed that some say is greater than the officially recognised economy.
This separate economy has for years been a drain on the official economy and is one of the reasons why the welfare of the nation has lagged behind the rest of the world. For people who are honest, those who declare their income and pay their modest amount of tax, this move is being celebrated.
According Indian media websites, this music

Sexuality and the human condition in spiritual context
By Gauri Mataji Devi
Many people have heard about the Kama sutra, but generally the ideas that circulate are rather distorted, vague and confused by ignorance and prejudice. Such prejudice is mostly due to the cultural superimposition of layers of prude bigotry and self-righteous moralism brought by iconoclastic Islamic dominator’s and later by Victorian British Christians.
Enforced by the abrahamic invaders, the wholesale condemnation of the intrinsic beauty and joy of the natural form and activities of the body, effectively destroyed the Vedic expressions of beauty and joy, or covered them with the thick plaster of shame.
And that’s not simply a manner of speaking: plaster physically obliterated
