ELEVEN!

November 26, 2010

Our propensity for idol worship is limitless. It’s commonplace to say we worship almost everything. Many would agree that we worship all because we see God in all. I differ. Our worships are a deliberate creation. Because if we don’t have Plants, Trees, Animals, stones etc. in our worship category, we will destroy all with […]

SCAM!

November 18, 2010

SCAM, SCAM and more SCAM! It seems that Mr Pandora has forgotten to lock his box. All Media has dived into it and rummaging like a pack of hungry dogs. Dog like, they are standing on the mound of rubbish with their heads buried into the filth. You can only see their frantically wagging tails. […]

The Checklist

November 16, 2010

Thereafter Hindu rule in India ended, quite literally, in the North. Muhammad Ghori finished off all the Hindu remnants in 1192 AD. This is very significant, because, […]

Producing a Scripture

November 8, 2010

In my last article (Religions), I had exchanged views that Our religions are an Anti-Thesis or at contrast to the society where it originated. Like Hinduism which has two prominent Books on wars and all our Gods war-like. Looking within our society, we would see just the opposite. Mis-representation and in-coherence are endemic to Indian Culture […]

Personal Responsibility

November 7, 2010

Selling like Hot cakes meaning Hit at the box-office. Anything which Hits “Our Chord”, reaches quickly for our pockets. I wonder why “Hot cakes”? Who and why would anyone choose hot cakes like “hot cakes”? Probably it has some historical connotations. The last time someone raised the matter of “Cakes” was Marie Antoinette. And it was really “hot” […]

Festival season is on and lots of celebrations are bursting in the air, literally. Most of the major world religions have their ceremony agendas scheduled in this season which concludes only with the New Year.
