Persia and its Wines

A 7000 year history

An ancient Persian legend says the history of wine began with a beautiful princess who lost favor with the mythological King Jamshid. Overwhelmed with pain and sorrow the princess tried to poison herself by drinking juice from a jar filled with spoiled grapes. After experiencing the juice’s intoxicating effects she fell asleep. The next morning the princess awoke and discovered she no longer felt depressed but rejuvenated instead. She took her discovery to the King who became so enamored with this new “potion” that he accepted her back and she regained the King’s favor.

Thereafter the King shared this wonderful finding with his entire court and decreed that all grapes grown in Persepolis would be

Why Hate?

A failure to become human

Someone sent me a quote, that is what sender was taught; that I enclose [I became so religious so that I could pray for you to burn in hell] and write him my reply : Hate is a weak emotion that shows that hater is a failure and will not succeed as a good human. Hating others even if your religion teaches you is a negative emotion that can erode your soul. Do you know there are large number of people who without knowing, are hating via their “praying that certain people” get hurt” daily.

They say that don’t hate what you don’t really understand and yet people hate others for their natural way

The Science of What's Real?

The why of how we all perceive differently

The science of how everything is relative and no one is right or wrong.

The science of yoga talks about the universe as we perceive it as being an illusion and not real in the way that we believe that it is. This is primarily because everyone perceives our everyday reality inside their own mind. To remind you; our five senses perceive something and then they send an electrical signal to our brains which interprets that signal and creates the concept of that reality. Because we experience life in our minds, we actually have no external reality other than how we perceive it to be and as some say ‘create’.

In these

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

Hare Rama, Hare Krishna

The Maha or great Mantra

Lord Krishna adorned with his weapons to banish fear and delusion

If you live in any large world city, there’s a good chance you have seen devotees dressed in traditional Indian costume charting Hare Rama Hare Krishna. Some of those people may even seem to be unnaturally happy but that is simply a consequence of intelligent focus on those four words. Yet even within India yesterday you will find a variety of understandings and interpretations that I have attempted to clarify.

The Hare Krishna mantra, is a 16-word Vaishnava mantra which is mentioned in the Kali-Santarana Upanishad. From the 15th century it rose to importance in the Bhakti movement following

The Fable of Four Wives

Metaphorical wisdom

An ancient Vedic Indian Story of a man with four wives that was at some point taken literally by some as they could never understood the essence and secret of this tale:

This man had four wives, he loved the fourth one very dearly, he would be lost in her charms He would adorn her with jewellery, rich dresses for her and entertain with her all the time, giving all his best.

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
