    Higgs Boson – The God, The Ghost or the Gods debris 

    God particle is the real ghost..nobody asks questions as to how and why particle acceleration took place initially?! Each one of us is part of Gods debris that was floating in gigantic space..when He blew himself to know what he was..! God will cease to exist once he knows he is God. There will be no purpose for his existence..and to know what is real..he blows himself up to millions of small bits and pieces! And this cycle will continue…to control it..there are anti god particles which prevents gods debris to rejoin…These anti god particles are the reason why WE exist…

    The ancient thinkers realized the cosmic secrets and locked it in cryptic text, mantras, hymns…it was for our own good…

    Hymns are actually passwords that can unlock a fascinating world filled with spirits, forces which hold human existence..

    For the curious souls, here is the vedic mantra that describes origin reason and desire of universe

    नासदासींनॊसदासीत्तदानीं नासीद्रजॊ नॊ व्यॊमापरॊ यत् ।
    किमावरीव: कुहकस्यशर्मन्नभ: किमासीद्गहनं गभीरम् ॥१॥

    न मृत्युरासीदमृतं न तर्हि न रात्र्या।आन्ह।आसीत् प्रकॆत: ।
    आनीदवातं स्वधया तदॆकं तस्माद्धान्यन्नपर: किंचनास ॥२॥

    तम।आअसीत्तमसा गूह्ळमग्रॆ प्रकॆतं सलिलं सर्वमा।इदम् ।
    तुच्छॆनाभ्वपिहितं यदासीत्तपसस्तन्महिना जायतैकम् ॥३॥

    कामस्तदग्रॆ समवर्तताधि मनसॊ रॆत: प्रथमं यदासीत् ।
    सतॊबन्धुमसति निरविन्दन्हृदि प्रतीष्या कवयॊ मनीषा ॥४॥

    तिरश्चीनॊ विततॊ रश्मीरॆषामध: स्विदासी ३ दुपरिस्विदासीत् ।
    रॆतॊधा।आसन्महिमान् ।आसन्त्स्वधा ।आवस्तात् प्रयति: परस्तात् ॥५॥

    कॊ ।आद्धा वॆद क‌।इह प्रवॊचत् कुत ।आअजाता कुत ।इयं विसृष्टि: ।
    अर्वाग्दॆवा ।आस्य विसर्जनॆनाथाकॊ वॆद यत ।आबभूव ॥६॥

    इयं विसृष्टिर्यत ।आबभूव यदि वा दधॆ यदि वा न ।
    यॊ ।आस्याध्यक्ष: परमॆ व्यॊमन्त्सॊ आंग वॆद यदि वा न वॆद ॥७॥

     

    These are just some thoughts..it all depends on us how we accept this reality or deny it..

    Crossword. 

    I solved a crossword successfully. I am happy. Took me 7.5 minutes for a 9×9 english crossword. It was my first time. 😉

    Life too is like a crossword. Every day a new puzzle is encountered and we have to solve it. Many times no hints are present and we have to fill in the meaningful gaps on our own. Some can do it with ease, some have to struggle.

    Thats the way it goes.

    Swine flue in Pune, India, some reasons and questions 

    Everything is justified.

    However, India is more prone to any kind of epidemics because of the inherent unclean habits the common people have.

    Add to it the careless attitude of people who actually are supposed to work on complex issues. The recent epidemic wouldent have had been so grave if the airport authorities would have done a more strict check of the people coming from abroad..what did they do? Just filled up a form saying that we are safe..some infected blokes slipped in the city, mixed with people and today, after 10 lives gone, we are wondering from where did it all start..!!

    Nuts..isent it??

    And one more thing..

    This swine flue isent a joke anymore we sit and analyse it esp the punekar way..

    Some families have lost their children, working men. This loss cant be justified. At this point of time, we all should support them. We need to realize the gravity of this issue.

    Lets not take it like ‘just-another-thing’

    Ignorance is a deadly sin, and we are paying for it.

    Some things that came in this light

    1. Where is Sharad Pawar, the head of National Disaster Management Committee which was set in Mumbai 2005 floods? I think the old guy needs to divert his attention from ICC to India. People are dying, food is becoming expensive and this guy..what is he doing??

    2. Where is Suresh Kalmadi? This man is invisible since the Deepak Mankar incident, and even during the swine flu epidemic, he hasent come across to punekars? Is this what we have elected him for?

    3. Is this a plot of a foreign power to disrupt the Indian software industry??

    4. The CM of MH is a MBA, he is supposed to have knowledge of how to manage things..but he missed it completely. Confused, Ignorant and Pathetic.. Asshok Chavan should sit in his house …

    5. Dont get out of home for at least 4 days.

      The lesson learnt from Swine flue is – keep clean and make your city clean & green. Every where you can see lot of garbage particlarly in common places of Bhopal and other medium size city. This is a major havoc as compared to other contagious diseases in India. Most of the persons/localites are irresponsible towards thier surrounding environment.

    Rain haiku 

    Thunder flashes

    across the night sky

    A full Moon grows.

    Creating new origami

    dusty rain drops

    softly…

    little rain drops…

    ripe plums fall

    all over the ground

    Bloomed in late summer

    a ripe cherry falls

    in silent silence..

    Rain drops fall

    no one hears

    the silent thuds..

    The end brings a new beginning 

    The end was actually hiding a new beginning in its sphere;

    darkness became the light,

    the wind turned into the smell of fear…

    2008 will end soon. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I had promised, even if this blog might stop for a while, the journey still continues…Some of you mailed me, some of you called me, I thank you. I wont pretend, but your words helped me a lot..

    I cannot make you wait for too long..

    You can now find me on Twitter – http://twitter.com/sevenlives

    House on a tree..the zen way

    This is a new venture by me into realms of unknown. I have tried to be honest while writing the Haiku, an art that is obscure, difficult to master, yet at the same time offers simple advice to the reader, the Zen way. At the same time, you can find humour, sarcasism, philosophy, rhythm a blend of everything…As a kid, I read a lot of Aesops Fables, Panchatantra, Indian legends, so expect to find the wise sages, the lonely Hermits, the houseless woods, speaking tigers, poisonous snakes, dangerous scorpions, smiling babies, everything that we encounter in our dreams and real life 🙂 .Sometimes you might not actually feel like reading a stereotype Haiku, but i have tried to preserve the ‘3 line rule’ , short is sweet..It offers me several advantages –

    1. It requires less time to write

    2. It helps to deliver the right message in right time

    3. Offers you lot of flexibility in reading, you dont need to be holed up forever in front of pc all the time..

    What more I can say now? Its time you can go and read it. Mind you, its Twitter, microblogging has got some limitations, the Haikus I wrote still maintain a rough edge, but I havent tried to hide the naiveness, maybe it will help to end the learning phase a little more fast..Twitter cannot substitute WordPress, but for the timebeing, it serves well..

    This is the sample of what you can expect

    People understand Tao

    People understand Zen

    Lying is a bad habit..

    This Haiku is obviously meant to target all marketting mongers. They are all of the same catagory, they try to sell you anything making it appear useful, however you bring it, you realize, its a waste of resources. We all need to be careful. Dont invest into something that appears glamorous, glosy. Too much of shine can be harmful. Your money/time/resources are precious, use them wisely and dont succumb to any pressure. In todays age, where recession looms ahead, job cuts are round the corner, we need to make sure we act wisely.

    Or

    Peace and goodwill

    they are everlasting desires

    Weak people have got no options…


    Todays tough age demands more out of us. No one can afford to be weak and request help all the time. Its apparant that a weakling is a burdan in any society. Unless you are strong, you are firm, you will always stay at the mercy of others, thus making your life miserable and weak. A weak person always desires peaec, but he is unable to fight for it, thus living forever in grief..A lesson we learn from Indias IT sectors debacle – Depend on US for yor jobs, you will always be at the perils of anti outsourcing voices. Obama isent a good man who will work in your favour, making life easy for you. The time isent the same now. Its time to get tough and act accordingly..Develop your own technology and then sell it. Sooner or later the world will be at your feet.

    Ok, thats enough for now.

    With all your blessings and compliments,

    I will be there again…

    See you on Twitter.

    Harshad Joshi.

      “A weak person always desires peaec, but he is unable to fight for it, thus living forever in grief.”

      Well said!
      I am totally in agreement with above.
      Besides IT, we in the engineering industry are also experiencing slow down . The Infrastructure business which was the flag ship business group of the company, is lying low. Customer who have once placed the orders, are not in position to take deliveries due to cash crunch. Infrastructure business in mostly dependent upon the World Bank Finance . When this source dries down, the going gets tough.

      With all the Odds of 26/11 reminds me of this poem:-

      Still I Rise —–

      You may write me down in history
      With your bitter, twisted lies,
      You may trod me in the very dirt
      But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

      Does my sassiness upset you?
      Why are you beset with gloom?
      ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
      Pumping in my living room.

      Just like moons and like suns,
      With the certainty of tides,
      Just like hopes springing high,
      Still I’ll rise.

      Did you want to see me broken?
      Bowed head and lowered eyes?
      Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
      Weakened by my soulful cries.

      Does my haughtiness offend you?
      Don’t you take it awful hard
      ‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
      Diggin’ in my own back yard.

      You may shoot me with your words,
      You may cut me with your eyes,
      You may kill me with your hatefulness,
      But still, like air, I’ll rise.

      Does my sexiness upset you?
      Does it come as a surprise
      That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
      At the meeting of my thighs?

      Out of the huts of history’s shame
      I rise
      Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
      I rise
      I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
      Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
      Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
      I rise
      Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
      I rise
      Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
      I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
      I rise
      I rise
      I rise.

      Wish you all happy new year…

    8 terrorists arrested in Pune 

    8 dangerous terrorists of Indian Mujahiddin are arrested from Pune today. They used to  hack Wifi connections and use the connection to send threatening emails to Police and government. Its notable that each of them were well educated, the head honcho Mohmmad Mansur Asgar Pirbhai,aged 31 used to work @ Yahoo! one of the most prestigious companies of India on a salary of Rs 19 lakh . Shame on Yahoo! for employing such a terrorist. (Yahoo! India has agreed to share Pirbhoys information to police, still is this the HR policy of Yahoo, shit….)

    First, the Samajwadi Party, Congress and that old man Javed Akhtar  wailed in favour of Azamgarh based terrorists claiming that they indulged into terrorist activities becasue they didnt had education, jobs etc. Now look at this Mansur Pirbhoy. Educated, having a well secure job and future, still he manages to do terrorist acts, plant bombs, send hate mails, and what else..I was startled to read that this son of a swine Pirbhoy didnt had a hint of remorse for what he did, or what he wanted to do.  He was stone cold during interrogations. Should we riddle their bodies with metal in public, just to show what is the fate of being a terrorist?? Meanwhile, Maya Sharma, the widow of Delhi Police martyr, Mohan Chand Sharma has come back strongly at the son of a bitch Amar Singh when he made derrogatory comments againsts the Late Sharma. WTH is Amar Singh?? Why dosent someone rip off his bulging eyes?? Except for Amitabh Bacchan, I think no one would like Amar Singh.. 

    Meanwhile here are few tips

    1. If any muslim coms to stay in your building, area, inform the police.

    2. If your company has employeed muslim people, check their activities, their mails, their surfing habbits etc.

    3. Dont trust what the muslim religious authorities say, muslims *are* terrorists. The Imam of Jama Masjid, Delhi is the biggest terrorist..dont trust the terrorists..

    Shivraj Patil, a height of political incompetence 

     

    shivrajpatil

     

    Breaking News – Sunday 30 Nov 2008 12:15 pm 

    After an eventful 3 days of Mumbai attacks, the bastard Sivraj Patil has finally decided to resign form the post of Union Home Minister. 

    Son of a bitch..!!

    Update on 28/11/2008

    1. NSG commondos has surrounded Nariman House.

    2, The Oberoi and Taj skirmish still continues, a blast is reported..

    3. USA sends a team of FBI officials to Mumbai, I dont know what will they do in here..

    4. Narendra Modi announces a 1 crore compensation to each of the killed in the attack..

     

    Update on 27 November 2008

    Mumbai is being attacked by pakistani militants. India *is* at war..Are we getting it, India *is* at war..!!!

    We lost Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar, and numerous others… 😦

    Shivraj Patil, you dork, why dont you just resign and sit at home telling stories of pre independence era to your grand children..maybe they will believe you are a Man…Terrorists are bombing places at their will, and your crap headed crab, you are sitting in a hi security office delivering bloody quotes..You incompetent nuthead, go away from the post of Union Home Minister, it is a prestigious and responsible ministry once held by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, hailed as the Iron Man of India. Shivraj Patil, dont forget, Sardar Patel was also of Congress, but one thing he had was courage. Courage isent a word, anyone could use it. You need to be a Man, understand it right. You need to be a Man to know exactly what courage means. The other day you were quoted as saying ‘I am not panicking even if terrorists attack’, isent it?? You burly brained nonsense, had the terrorists targetted your family members you would have realized who panicks and who dosent.

    Let me tell you – The common Indian isent intimated by any kind of terror attack. We are used to every difficulty in life, every challenge, and every terse situation. But why should people like you get to be there, where you are right now..?? Crap head, just walk the streets of any Indian city unarmed, no security with you then you might get some sense in your brainless skull…

    Shivraj Patil, you dork, you are an incompetant politico. Get a life…Get away from the Union Home Minisstry Office. You have already spoilt the prestige of that post, dont detoriate it further…

    In a talk given to NDTV, this is what the minister has to say..

    “I will resign only when the Congress president Sonia Gandhi tells me to go.”

    wow, look at the height of shamelessness…So, according to Mr Shivraj Patil, Sonia Gandhi is the new God. And he will obey his God only…I am speechless…

    We need that The law proposed by Narendra Modi, the GUJCOC should be implemented throughout India to battle terrorism. Add to it the POTA. Then I think no terrorist will dare to attack India

      Why is Shivraj Patil so sympathetic towards jihadis, terrorists .He avoids using terrorist words and instead use misguided people for the inhuman terrorists.

      Shivraj Patil has been the weakest Home Minister we ever had .
      why is he so reluctant to make any anti terror law .

      He doen’t deserve to be Home Minister of India and must quit if he has a bit of shame.

      Be gentle on him, He is greatest gift to former Babu MMS.
      We simply deserve people like them. First of all we don’t vote and then we crib about the govt, It is not fair. I simply love him. He is the best sucker in this side of the world

Wonder where is Raj Thakeray to defend the marathi manoos who have suffered this pain and where is his party! To top it all, the hon’ble home minister spoke about V P Singh rather than people who are still alive and can die at the press briefing!

      Best way to counter terrorism
      1. Kill all the politicians and give reign to educated and dedicated people like IAS officers, IPS officers .Politicians are the biggest terrorists.
      2. Make the entire system more effecient and more accountable.
      3. Mr Sibbal says that it was a well planned attack and it was being planned from 2-3 months. Shame on you. Were you sleeping since then. Where the heck is our intelligence? Can we call ourselves a global power when we cant defend even a common man in our country. There are blasts everywhere and every month. Delhi, lucknow, jaipur, gujrat, bangalore, the list goes on.
      4. I want a bomb to explode in the parliament when all the politicians are there. They have fucked our country.
      5. This non sense statement that we choose the politicians is ridiculous. We will choose from what we get. The whole lot is rotten, what choice does the common man have?

      1.After all this, Shivraj Patil should not be asked to resign, he should be “Sacked”.
      2. Even yesterday (Mumbai shoot out) he again came in best suit he can afford and had a rose on his coat.
      3. Last time when he was confronted by people / media he shouted back saying that he is loyal to his “leader” (read sonia gandhi). NO. Mr. Shivraj you are answerable for us, people of India. You represent India not sonia.

      Totally agree with Monika. India must take some pages off Bush and Blair doctrine. India has must apply the system Israel uses. Most Muslims are shocked and have had enough of these militants using the cover of their religion for such heinous acts.

      I’m from the United States and know NOTHING of the politics of India. In fact, I know little of India except I have been watching a lot of the coverage of the terrorist’s acts on NDTV the past few days.

      If I might ask, what is the attitude of the general populace towards tour Prime Minister? Is it favorable or unfavorable since this event?

      Terrorism specially from Muslim twisted minds isnt something new for India. But this time it has hit Indians hard.

      The general feeling is “Enough is Enough”.

      Everyone knows Pakistan is harbouring , supporting and instigating such attacks.

      People want answers and action now.

      Hi Guys

      I understand the feeling of 1) Relatives of the Victims of Mumbai attack 2) The uneasy tense feeling Mumbaikars have when the go out on the streets of Mumbai

      Hemant Karkare- Got his BTech as Mechanical Engineer, cleard IPS. When such highly qualified sincere officers are killed, it really is painful and sad.

      However, please do not become emotional. Think Rationally.

      I have seen emotional remarks like declare war on Pakistan.
      Just think for 5 mins. What is the use of war? Will it not breed more hatred? You go and bomb the terrorists and kill them. But, their families will again develop hatred. Hatred breeds more hatred. You are just applying ointment for a disease, rather than curing it using medicines.

      LB Shastri resigned as the Railway minister in 1956 owing moral responsibility when a train accident took place killing 144 people. How could he control a train accident ? But still he owned the responsibility.
      Our former home minister Shivraj Patil, should have done it on the same lines. Unfortunately, it does not happen that way in today’s politics.

      Its collectively responsibility of We the citizens to elect good politicians, report susupicious people to the police immediately.

    The LHC, CERN,the Earth,and me 

    The LHC or Large Hadron Collider was supposed to fire a huge beam smashing atoms, colliding quarks, and whatnot, that was capable of turning Earth into a black hole @ 1:30 PM IST.

    Its 2:08 PM IST, I am observing that I am alive, the people next to me are alive, the computers working properly, there is no power cut, the TV’s on, there has been no earth quake reported, my mobile network is operational, theres traffic on road..people are moving around, they seem perfectly all right ..All these things prove that Earth has been spared from becoming a black hole. I dont now if the scientists @ CERN got what they were finding, but I am pretty sure that the world wont end that easily, especially with me having a lot of desires left to be satisfied 😉

    Theres no प्रलय, heres no Doom’s day, theres no Apocalypse, Judgement Day has been postponed. 😛

    Rejoice Dudes, we have got yet another day to live..make the most out of it, who knows what those crazy scientist might be upto now..However, i cant help thinking. Bing Bang, Universe is great, but we have got so many problems like hunger, poverty, unemployment, racism, corruption, religious controversies, why cant someone try to solve them, I bet they are more challenging then Big Bang.. 😉

    Hey…to know what CERN’s to, watch this live webcast from this site.All I can see is few people walking here and there..

    Update on 10 Sept 9:30 PM IST

    This news of earth being turned into a black hole was potrayed so cinematically by some Indian news channels that one 16 year old girl in Indore commited suicide when she saw that the world was going to end soo..The Indian TV media once again proved they are the biggest assholes in some aspects..No maturity, no sense, no originality..Mongrels…Crap heded blistering barnacles..

      Hi Harshad,

      CERN did indeed switch on the LHC, but only to warm up the machines and do some preliminary tests. They haven’t even began colliding the atoms yet. The first collisions take place in the second week of October this year.

      If such a devestating cataclysm were to take place we wouldn’t know until 2012 when it reaches maximum performance and any hypothetical ‘mini black holes’ have had a chance to accrue and form a quasar inside the planet (which would be apocalyptic to say the least).

      Having said that, no one can say for certain exactly what will happen once the LHC is colliding beams in ernest. Even CERN themselves admit that they can’t predict exactly what will happen and what chain of events will transpire. That’s a tad worrying. After all, nothing of this scale has ever been tested. Until now anyway.

      There is a miniscule and remote chance that in four years, if Dr Otto Rossler and former nuclear physicist Walter Wagner are right, the earth will be experiencing some major negative changes. God forbid that happens.

      2012 is a significant year for many reasons, (see the Mayan Long Count Calander and the Grand Allignment). I just hope that the LHC doesn’t make it a tragic hat trick for us.

      Personally, I’m optimistic. The chance of tragedy is there. But it’s very small.

      I thought all they were doing this time was firing one beam, and the micro-black holes that will swallow the world (not) from colliding two beams aren’t due for a few weeks?

      geez … reading around the ‘net, it appears virtually none of the MSM is bothering with that slight (not) difference either …

As you rightly said, there are various issues like Hunger, Corruption, Racism, Poverty, Unemployment etc etc. Why can’t India and in turn World look for that. They are definitely challenging than Big Bang. No problem, World should go on exploring Earth, Universe and Environment but after it solves the problem within.

      There is just no chance at all that CERN destroys the world. See the safety reports in http://www.arxiv.org

      1) Mini black holes are quantum objects described by quantum gravity. Since we don’t know how to do quantum gravity we cannot calculate any probabilities (for creation, decay etc) except for the case that we use classical theories (general relativity). These give an absolutely negligible probability for a BH to be created. I wish that LHC creates one however. This way we might get a hint on how to construct quantum gravity.

      2) If you could stand next to a mini BH you would feel no gravitational force (its field is extremely weak on macroscopic scales).

      3) BH do not devour everything that stands in their way. They are black simply because if you cross the event horizon there is no possible way to get out. But in order to fall into a BH you need to have a trajectory that crosses its event horizon. If we replaced the sun with a BH nothing would happen. Well, there would be no light and planets would revolve at faster speeds (those closer to the BH would have complex rosette trajectories).

When “results” expected and “No” discovery, Physicists rigged Physics for grant money since the start of the industrial revolution. Physics today is at least 51 % fraud!

      the lhc at this point in time is a very bad idea, there are far to many unknowns.

      when they were testing the fist a-bomb they though it might light
      the atmosphere on fire, sure it may have not happened in the end but they had to do it because lives were at stake and they had to end a long drawn out war. failure was not an option!

      but there is no justifiable reason why we should chance fate a second time over such a small thing.

      at this point in history there are more important things, i feel they should postpone the testing for a decade or so and devote those $$$
      bones to some thing better like mining asteroids and or developing practical solutions for space flight.
      like idk a space shuttle the common man could afford to buy, maintain and operate.

      the simple fact of the matter is that these tests have no real world use/applications at the moment.
      more over we already have the scientific/technological capability of achieving such feat’s as space flight with out the lhc.

      to conclude my rant i ask what is the lhc going to do for me “the common man”? I’ll tell you, “possibly” kill me and every one else, and a whole lota nothing!

      and for what to satisfy the curiosity of some egg head whom does not care about my thoughts
      ideals and more over my genius!

      fool’s, I’ll bet if it was put to a world wide democratic vote today they would be shut down tomorrow!

      the end does not justify the means no manner how you dice it what so ever.

      i wonder what would happen if the lhc was fired up and then all the sudden the sun let out a giant solar flair?

      after all our sun has an solar cycle of about 11 years between its major amounts of solar activity.

      i remember back in 1999 and 2000 they were all worried over y2k and also over that nastier solar cycle thing.

      which may i add will be at its height on dec 21 2012.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle

      either way i think the test should be postponed until a time between our suns solar cycle.

      sure it would take them 15-20 more years or so to do all the tests they want to do but “safety first” that’s what i always say.

      as far as i have read the lhc only has a life expectancy of 10 years, during that time it will be upgraded once.

      but for them to do testing in 2009-2011 then stop for 5 years and then resume for 3-4 years, would be way more safer.

      idk the main and only problem with the lhc that ppl should be worried about is the unknown side effects if such a device.

      no only to us but our solar system in general, it doesn’t take much research on the internet to find out that such things can go terribly wrong.

      although the lhc is only a 10 year project, the simple fact of the manner is that if such an device were in operation for say 40 years there is some where between a 40-75% chance of catastrophic failure resulting in alot of the side effect’s that many have dismissed as being false misinformation.

      be it mini black holes, strangelets, mono-polar particles, i would have to say they are the least of our worries.

      after all are we ready for the information and research that would be generated by the lhc, what are the consequences of this information?

      after the discovery of nuclear fission mankind had the ability to fully destroy its self, this in effect caused fear and panic and later led to the cold war, a struggle which led to the economic failure of communism in the ussr resulting in much poverty.

      with great power comes great responsibility, that being said what makes these scientists the right people for this task?

      what gives them the right to put our lives at stake even if the chances is only like .000000000000000000000000000001% especially when nobody can say for certain what will or wont happen.

      i dont wana go on spouting out all this doom’s day jargon and referring to prophecy but even though i dont believe in that crap that does not mean im not going to at least try to avoid such things.

      i think that those people responsible for the lhc are being very ignorant of peoples believes customs and ideals, if the lhc were built in canada here it would have been shut down already due to lobbying and petitioning, and more over for being a violation of the Canadian charter of rights and freedom’s (due in part to its timing in accordance with the dec 21 2012 thing).

      figure that, if i believed in the mayan religion and customs (ha minus the human sacrifice of course) according to the c c r f they would be violating my rights and i could sue them.

          it may be in France/Switzerland but it is still on earth.

          i more or less just dont want them to do testing during the sun’s solar maximum.

          http://indigosociety.com/earth-not-risk-lhc-large-hadron-collider-t7791/#post546661

          aka 2011 and on to 2015 or so and from 2020 to 2025, if they could not mess around with it then that would just be swell.

          idk if it only effected them i wouldn’t care, i would happily go along with it until they killed them selves just so i could say i told you so.

          but this thing is so big that if some thing go’s wrong it wont only effect them, our collective asses are on the line.

          i think what will happen is a computational error due to emi/emp from a massive solar storm, this in turn will cause catastrophic failure.

              every door every window and even down to the very relays and contractors they use to control the sophisticated equipment in the lhc.

              at that point it wont manner what operating system they use, in the end it will just be a simple error caused by the very thing that breathes life into our fair planet.

    The Beijing Olympics 2008 ceremony has kicked off and officially, for next 20 days, we are going to see an exciting series of old records broken, new records being set. Top leaders from almost 80 countries are visiting Beijing for this extravaganza. Here’s a joke thats being passed here in India.

    Dubya, the George Bush Jr, who is enjoying his few days as American President, is visiting China as a guest at the Beijing Olympics ceremony, where he is supposed to deliver a small speech.

    He’s handed over a speech letter by his secretary. Dubya goes through it, and begins…

    “O…O……O….O…”

    The secretary says ‘ Sir, plese turn the page, thats not ‘O’. Thats the official Olympic logo. Your speech’s on the next page..’

    The Ego and the flames 

    Ego is bad. Very bad. And when you find someone more egoistic then you, then its extremely hard to describe how badly it hurts. What exactly hurts is not known, but somewhere within, deep inside there is pain..lot of pain..words can describe it…but its real and it exists.

    I found  a new way to get over pain.

    1. I searched for all her conversations from the server. All the dialogs were intact on Gtalk, Gmail and Open Server.

    2. Brought a bundle of executive bond papers, the most expensive ones.

    3. Opened every conversation I had with her.

    4. Print was the command.

    5. Printing continued till the entire executive bond paper bundle became empty.

    6. Gathered all of them, and arranged them properly.

    7. Went on the terrace. Sprinkled some kerosene on it. 1 match stick was enough..

    8. As I watched the flames consuming the conversations I had with her, within my true self, something was feeling to be at peace. I think it was ego, maybe..

    9. Threw the matchbox in too…emptied the whole kerosene bottle..the eager flames were hungry for more..

    10. Felt much better. It was all over for me…One relation ended. I finally was at peace..The rage seemed pacified…

    I hope things will be normal now. Slowly, but surely, I will be back. I am not a slave of my ego, but I cant promise anything if it gets hurt.

      Well..I guess it wasent easy afterwards..I had purchased those expensive papers for taking printouts of the stamp collection I found on flickr…Later Dad inquired about those pages, and I nonchalantly told him -‘I set them on fire’..He was stunned..!! I had to hear many things…I had to apologize to him. Probably he knows the real reason, he’s just waiting for me to confess it…I will speak it out to him soon…

      Till then, alls well…

      Ego is painful, you are so right. I had a big pain today, as my ego came up against my mothers. The worst thing about ego is that is implicitly hard to see in ourselves and easy to see in others. That is the nature of introspection, to reveal.

      Nope. Ego is not good at all….atleast not with loved ones.. Causes break ups of friends and lovers more than anything else.

    Wise Words 

    By staying faithful to shreya [what is right and beneficial], instead of preya [what is pleasant], we win the sweetest fruits of life, from success to happiness to enlightenment

    There are some marvellous concepts in Vedanta that reduce the spiritual quest into essential principles. Among them are the twin concepts of Preya and Shreya.

    What are these? Apart from the fact that they are delightfully rhymed (notice how Sanskrit specialises in related concepts that rhyme? Yogi-bhogi, tan-man, smriti-shruti, one could go on!), they are connected, for they illustrate the vital importance of fusing our desires into one single-pointed direction.

    Preya stands for what is pleasant: a holiday in Goa, channa bhaturas and gulab jamuns, driving a Mercedes Benz, designer clothes and shades, a blazing love affair, etc. Shreya, unassuming and circumspect, stands for what is beneficial to us: eating healthy, maintaining an exercise regimen, staying within one’s income, maintaining fidelity in marriage, doing one’s duty. All the world will agree, especially today, that Preya is the hip swinging chick, while Shreya, let’s face it, is the dowdy one. Boring, for heavens sake.

    Little wonder then that most of us beat a path to Preya’s door, while Shreya’s threshold is definitely the road less taken, indeed almost never taken.

    All through our lives, we chase the objects that promise us happiness, like money, love, good times, fame, power, success, etc. But the paradox, as Vedanta says, is that we never really get happiness. Why? Because we look for it in the wrong place. Outside, not inside. Preya seduces us through our senses and we gallop after all that it flourishes, horse racing, cigarette smoking, Formula One races, and what not. But no sooner do we get there than the promised happiness either dissolves or is seen to not exist.

    In the Katha Upanishad, the body is likened to the chariot, the five senses to the horses, the intellect to the charioteer, the mind to the reins, and the Self to the rider inside the chariot. As long as the intellect and the mind do not do their duty by reining in and controlling the senses, the horses will run amok, charging after whatever attracts them without discrimination or restraint. And what happens? The rider never gets to the place he wants to go: peace of mind, happiness, health, even enlightenment.

    Shreya, on the other hand, can seem like a dull piece of goods when first we make our acquaintance with her dull —and exacting—like a stern school marm, but as we get to know her better we will have to admit that she really has our interest at heart. You are on a diet, she will remind us, just as we are about to lift a grilled cheese sandwich to our mouth, and if we can make ourselves replace it with a vegetable sandwich instead, we will savour the sweet sense of a victory over the senses. Or we may be itching to watch TV and she will remind us of the vegetables to be peeled or the ironing to be done. Or her small still voice stalls us when we contemplate a temptation at work that requires us to bend the rules just a little in order to make a fortune.

    Most of us pay obeisance to both Preya and Shreya for we are awfully torn between them. Instead of fusing all our energies into one direction, we fritter them by being pulled into two opposite directions. We long to stay slim, fit and healthy, but no sooner do we see a mutton biryani or hariyali kabab than our goal forgotten and we chomp right into them. We regret it later, but that simply adds to the problem because now we have guilt to contend with as well, which also sends us headlong into Preya.

    We long for success but instead of gritting our teeth and working our heads off, we apple polish the boss and bitch about our colleagues. We vow not to gossip or bitch about others but no sooner do we catch hold of a juicy morsel, than we hasten to spread it among our buddies. Life is a long and wearisome struggle to get out of the hold of Preya and towards Shreya.

    For we will never get what we want as long as we do the opposite.

    The Katha Upanishad tells us that Preya and Shreya stand for the two choices that we have to make at any given time. Consciously or unconsciously, we choose either Preya or Shreya. And the two go in opposite directions.

    One towards lasting happiness and fulfillment, the other towards temporary satisfaction and permanent regret. At the end of our lives, we will be able to gauge which of the two has been our guide and inspiration by examining where we stand. Are we happy, energised, buoyant and radiant? Clearly, Shreya has been our mentor. Are we tired, ill, impoverished and unfulfilled? Oh dear, we have been too enamoured of Preya.

    So how do we get out of the hold of Preya and move towards Shreya?

    Ramakrishna Paramahansa put it in sublimely simple words. If you want to go East, don’t go West. If you want to lose weight, don’t eat fattening food. If you want to be fit, don’t give up your exercise. If you want to finish your project, stop chatting with your colleagues and checking the mail.

    If you want to get enlightened, stop chasing good times. All we have to do to obey Shreya is not to obey Preya. Refuse to betray your friends or your own values. Refuse to chase money, fame or power at the cost of values or principles. Refuse to indulge the senses.

    And lo, your task is done. Preya soon wilts away into a gossamer shade, and Shreya waxes strong and beautiful. With Shreya at our side, the battle of life is eventually won, for she teaches us to put the long term over the short term, the principle over expedience, the right over the tempting.

    By staying faithful to Shreya we win the sweetest and most sought after fruits of life, from success to happiness to enlightenment.

    Simple words, they are effective in preventing a lot of day-to-day troubles we have most of times, including a bad-relationship, a bad office day, a bad fight…everything like that…

    For those who found Preya and Shreya a wee bit simple or complex, this is for you.

    All human beings are not equipped to take on changes or difficult situations in life, naturally. Out of them, many don’t adapt to those situations. The result normally is— those situations and accompanying stress overwhelm people. Since modern times stress has been identified as the single biggest contributor to depression. The mind-boggling changes in every sphere of life—culture, profession, modes of transportation and rapid lifestyle changes put pressure on men to adjust with equal speed. Stress begins to wear them out and there is a loss of resiliency against adverse situations of life. Consequently, they begin to pull away from others and give in to depression.
    It is often said that people think themselves into depression. The thinking pattern of a person helps him accept or avoid a stress situation. If one shows disposition towards anxiety, worry, restlessness, anger and tension as stress responses, it can lead him to chronic emotional turbulences. We can worsen an ordinary sorrowful situation by imagining its possible intensity. We create problem situations by imagining what might go wrong, could go wrong, and how terrible it would be. Even if the depression is due to biochemical imbalances, the person doesn’t abstain from thinking negatively about it. Constant stressful situations make one develop a negative pattern of thinking, which gives in to depression at the slightest provocation in life.

    At present, a whole lot of holistic therapies are applied to heal acute and chronic depression. Besides prescription drugs, healing methods such as naturopathy, energy balancing, and yogic techniques are extensively and effectively utilized all over the world. Adopting a positive lifestyle helps you develop a healthy mind-body frame to avoid depression. For those believing in medical solution, a dose of Fluxotine will do wonders.

    Tributes to a warrior – Feild Marshal Sam Manekshaw 

    Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, MC

    I pay tributes to Feild Marshal Sam Manekshaw. A true soldier, a brave son of India, you have got no parallel. You will be remembered for several generations. Sam Bahadur, we are proud of you. History and Future will always respect you for your valour.  I wonder what the Indian cricket team might be thinking when they beat Bangladesh (former East Pakistan) at Karachi, Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2008. Except for MS Dhoni, most of the players are nuts…least they should remember that this victory comes due to the valient efforts of some brave men, one of them being Sam Bahadur..Bangladesh owes this man a lot.

    Dedicated to my lost love – Honey, I loved you immensely 

    Every time u call i freeze
    When your close to me i feel a chilly breeze
    I know something is not right
    Could u b the one making me feel so tight

    I didn’t use to like u
    But now could it b true..
    Am i falling in love with u?

    So innocent, so sweet and surreal
    Casting a swirling aura around us
    Turquoise eyes drowning and drenched
    Within the angelic love song

    The hearts had met to one mystic soul
    Wanted to feel this forever and ever
    Never to cease and fade, never to wane
    My love I always felt , would always
    Last till the end of the time.

    I agree that this short peom isent mine, I take no credits for it. I dont know who’s written it, but what matters is that its an apt example of whats going through my mind..Normally I dont speak mushy, but now I am letting it out in public.

    Honey, listen to me, you may never know or understand  it, but if you  read this, I confess that I loved you more then anything else. True we may never meet, but if I could show you what true love was, then its this….My words are turning empty, but the feelings arent…Dear God, if you get time from you daily chores, can you please listen up a prayer I sent for her? Keep her happy. Just keep her happy, I know what pain is like, but I wish she remains happy. She retaught me the purpose of life.Those beautiful moments she passed with me make me feel heaven. I have no complaints with what happened, nor I care a damn about whats gonna take place, but the fact is, I am in deep love, I am rediscovering myself in a form previously unknown to me..

    Gosh, these feelings….let the rain come down and wash away my tears, let it shatter the walls and drown my fears..I feel as if I had been kissed by an angel of Love..A new day …has come…..

    To all those boozing hounds and enemies of Love and haters of God, non believers in Love – This post is not meant for you. Not at all for you. If you are the pathetic and immature souls whose concepts are fake as that of Maya, get a life..shoo away, you get it, just fly away..hide yourself into deepest dark oceans or infinite space..Go….!!!!

    Disclaimer While the people I write about are real, the experiences I post here may or may not be real and related to people I know. Its just my thoughts I have spoken to myself. If anyone of you finds a co-incidence, then rejoice…maybe I have taken some inspiration from you..And honestly, I do not hate anyone in life, even if you have managed to break my heart, you know that I am a brave soul 😉 Maybe 10 years from now I look back and say – O boy, I was so mad, crazy at times, I dont know. We are all strong and weak at times. So dont mind anything, just read, enjoy and move on with life

    Good Grief 

    This heartbreak hangover has continued for fairly long time, I mean its more then a week I havent been able to pick my spirits up. In one point of view, everything appears as a dead end, especially in this fast globalized ultramodern age, with so much technology and gadgets around, who would bother to wait and listen? Its such a fast paced world. Friendship made and broken in seconds, split seconds without batting an eyelid, On the other hand, the mind, the frenziness of emotions and feelings tell an otherwise story. Whom to really care for? Inspite of technology, the communication and understanding gap still prevails between people. This comes to notice specifically when one apologizes to a girl by making use of email/sms/chat combo. Even a guy advised me to meet her and sort it out. Boy, I had that courage and might, then probably I wouldent even have these bad feelings get into my way. This is Karma, we attach our emotions with so many people really without knowing the consequence of what will happen in future. Some blokes I know are pretty calculated individuals, they do not allow emotions to get in their way, call it a professional approach of sort.

    This incident taught me many things.

    1. No matter how much rich your dad is, a gurl will first look at you and your capabilities. Atleast the one who analyses you for a long time dosent get impressed by the prizes you won, she looks at the job and the yearly package. No other impression ever works.. 😦

    2. Surrounded by technology, we might get a feel of being a technocrat or whatever, but primitive feelings like emotions, rage, jealousy still exist. By no means we can avoid it. The forms and definations of ego might have changed, but it still continues to hurt as hell.

    3. Love hurts. In every age Love hurts. It has hurted me a lot. I dont know if I am mature enough to understand its true meaning, but the seen consequence makes me wonder – I am freaky enough to be loved?I am an equally loved and hated guy, I remember most of those occasions when I was hated..

    Gosh darn those status lines on my Gtalk – Love and Hate are one and all, sacrifice soon turns to revenge..

    A girl may not find these lines romantic enough, especially when shes commited to someone else. She will take it as an ominous sign of flirting, and bang, thats the end of all relations..no amount of apologies work, meeting is impossible, no truce…no peace, direct attack…what else??

    4. If you have been hurt before in relations, its wisdom to avoid complications in first place itself. If any jilted lover is reading this, I would advise – Avoid relations that do not exist. Example – A fragile relation that occured during a meeting over in social networking tools like MySpace, Orkut, FaceBook etc. These relations are never serious, they do not have any name, Modern pundits call it cyber relations, I dont have any good name for it. I mean its crazy concept to even think of attaching a name and emotions to a thing that exists in electronic world. Its true that sentimental fools like me are fond of attaching their feelings to the most ridiculous and insignificant things that exist in this world, its difficult at times. Here, every occasional hi, hello is a symbol of friendship, and every relation is apparantly a permanant one. Madness in all respect….I am a mad person who has got a provan track record of being in madly with love with girls I know I would never get to see, to touch, to talk and so on…This is my flaw, and I seriously need to get over it. My ex girl friend said that she avoided me because I did not had a ‘pure’ friendship with her. If I know that saying hello to her in wee hours of morning can spell as disaster I am suffering from, I would have avoided it. I am going to avoid it all togather throughout my life. Never send a girl an sms that can spoil your party. Controversies are never comfortable…

    5. Even if sacrifice may turn to revenge, you may not see the face who would say ‘I love you, I will kill you, but I will love you forever’ (Sobs…Sobs…..Tears…Sniff) I didnt 😦 Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…….

    I will update this if my girl replies back to me, else think this as the end of this post (and my spoilt relation as well ) Hey Girl, dont mind, I will still continue loving you..Pure love knows no limits   😦   (Sic..Snifff…)

      Hi Adi. I met her. I apologized using all the words I knew till today, but she didnt like my new role of a jilted lover. I asked her if our relations would be right as they were earlier, she indirectly said ‘No.’ If this wasent enough, as per expectations, she informed me that shes getting married soon…I could do nothing more but nevertheless, I congratulated her. That was the only option I had, nothing more we can do. Relations are a crazy thing.

      Age of Lonliness is bad enough, and someone telling you that you are lonly is more bad then ever….

    10 May 1857 – The first renaissance of Indian Freedom struggle 

    The Indian Rebellion of 1857 began as a mutiny of sepoys of British East India Company‘s army on the 10th of May 1857, in the town of Meerut, and soon erupted into other mutinies and civilian rebellions largely in the upper Gangetic plain and central India, with the major hostilities confined to the region of present-day Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, northern Madhya Pradesh or Saugor and Nerbudda Territories, Delhi, and Gurgaon.[2] The rebellion posed a considerable threat to Company power in that region,[3] and it was contained only with the fall of Gwalior on 20 June 1858.[2] The rebellion is also known as India’s First War of Independence, the Great Rebellion, the Indian Mutiny, the Revolt of 1857, and the Sepoy Mutiny.

    The rebels quickly captured large swaths of the Northwest Provinces and Oudh, including Delhi, where they installed the Mughal ruler, Bahadur Shah Zafar, as Emperor of Hindustan. The Company response came rapidly as well: by September 1857, with help from fresh British reinforcements, Delhi had been retaken.[2] Nevertheless, it then took the better part of 1858 for the rebellion to be completely suppressed in Oudh.[2]

    Other regions of Company controlled India—Bengal province, the Bombay Presidency, and the Madras Presidency—remained largely calm.[2] In Punjab, only recently annexed by the East India Company, the Sikh princes supported the Company to provide both soldiers and support.[2] The large princely states, Hyderabad, Mysore, Travancore, and Kashmir, as well as the smaller ones of Rajputana, by not joining the rebellion, served, in the Governor-General Lord Canning‘s words, as “breakwaters in a storm” for the Company.[4]

    In some regions, especially in Oudh, the rebellion took on the attributes of a patriotic revolt against European presence;[5] however, although the rebel leaders, especially the Rani of Jhansi, became folk heroes in the burgeoning nationalist movement in India half a century later,[2] they themselves “generated no coherent ideology or programme on which to build a new order.”[6] Still, the rebellion proved to be an important watershed in Indian history;[7] it led to the dissolution of the East India Company in 1858, and forced the British to reorganize the army, the financial system, and the administration in India.[8] India was thereafter governed directly from London—by the British government India Office and a cabinet level Secretary of State for India—in the new British Raj, a system of governance that lasted until 1947.[4]

      On the 150th anniversary of the First War of Independence of Indian people against colonial rule it is both relevant and necessary to discuss some aspects connected with the struggle. Despite their differences with each other, the common opinion of the parties of ruling classes is that the First War of Independence of 1857 reached its logical conclusion with the transfer of power in 1947 (which they hold to be “independence”.) Here they conveniently ignore that in 1947 the British colonial rulers transferred power to those very classes who had sided with the colonial aggressors in the War of independence of 1857-59 or those the colonial rulers had nurtured after crushing the peoples revolt. In a sense the transfer of power of 1947 was not the completion of the War of Independence of 1857 but the continuing in modified form of the colonial rule victorious in the war of 1857-59. The independence struggle of the people continues even now in today’s concrete conditions.

      At the root of the understanding of the ruling class parties, supported and nourished as they are by imperialism, is their evaluation of the character of colonial rule. The praises showered on colonial rule by Manmohan Singh is in accordance with this evaluation. Yes, this much is there that the politicians of ruling classes used to avoid openly praising their masters as shamelessly as he did.

      The question in context of the War of 1857-59 is whether the British colonial rulers were destroying feudalism in India and thus the War of 1857 was merely a feudal reaction against this. The basic question in relation to the above understanding is whether there were no processes of democratization in Indian society? Did the colonial rule, despite all its atrocities and destruction, democratize Indian society? With this outlook, the War of 1857-59 becomes a reactionary campaign, not a war of independence. This understanding takes colonial rule to be a synonym of destroying feudalism and building capitalism in India. It is another matter that the task of democratic revolution is not over even after 150 years of 1857, and the task of democratization of society is still on the agenda. In short, the issue is, with the victory of which forces in the war of 1857-59 was the task of democratic transformation in India associated?

      Was the British colonial rule in India really a campaign to establish capitalism after destroying feudalism? When the colonial rule actually began in the first half of the 18th century, India was a feudal society pregnant with capitalist forces. Spinning and weaving was the occupation second to farming in which people found employment in large numbers. The muslin of Dacca was renowned throughout the world. Cottage industry was widespread on a countrywide scale and many people depended on it for a livelihood. Mineral resources were also used according to the needs of the society.

      The British destroyed native industry completely. This was necessary to ensure use in India of mill products from Britain. With the start of British colonial rule the use in India of British goods increased very fast and many figures are available to show this. Textile industry in India was completely destroyed and this was not only due to competition between goods but was done through barbaric repression and atrocities whose hair-raising accounts are available in large numbers. In Capital, Marx had termed the uprooting of weavers in India the biggest human tradegy till that time. Weavers, carpenters, blacksmiths and other artisans became victims of unemployment on a large scale. In the proclamation on 25th August 1857 of Mughal prince Firoz Shah the state of artisans is mentioned and it is furthur stated that the entry of English goods snatched the livelihood of spinners, weavers, carpenters, blacksmiths, shoemakers etc. and made the artisans beggars in every way. The inflow of English goods into India finished off all possibilities of capitalist development in place of capitalist development of the country. Even today the ruling classes of India are showing a mirage of development leaning on imperialist capital. Actually by destroying the capitalist forces with which feudal India was pregnant the British did not ‘democratize’ India but rather tried to finish off any possibilities of this. By finishing off the industries of India the colonial rulers spread the use of industrial goods from British mills. In this way they prepared an economic basis for an alliance with feudalism.

      The British colonial rule is synonymous with the cruelest loot. The British rulers looted the then rulers of the country as well the people and carried away all the resources to Britain. The British colonial rulers showed the way of capitalist development in Britain by leaving India penniless and of making Britain the biggest power of the world of that time.

      The colonial rule targeted for plunder not feudalism but the whole agricultural system of India. The tax on land was significantly raised and peasants were dispossessed in the event of non-payment. The economic burden on both peasants and landlords was increased so much in order to intensify loot that large tracts of land became barren. According to SB. Chowdhry “heavy rent increased taxes and made the peasants destitute. In many parts of the country rent was settled at very high rates.” At the same time there were rent free areas in the country on a large scale. All rent free areas were declared ended and a period of terror against them was launched. Each piece of land was brought into the tax nexus. In order to increase its income the Company also used the method of direct extraction from peasants but altogether burden of tax and rent on the peasantry increased. The echo of the exploitation of the peasantry on such a large scale was heard even in England when Disraeli commented on it in a parliamentary debate. The British L.L.S. Omelie wrote referring to a report “I can challenge that one third of land in company ruled areas of India has become a jungle in which only wild animals live”.

      By auctioning the possession of farmers and landlords who did not pay the high rents to the colonial rulers a web of usury capital was laid out in the country. In the struggle of 1857-59 these too were attached in many places. Altogether colonial rule made agriculture a special target of its exploitation due to which the situation of the peasantry become quite pitiable. This was an attack not on feudalism but on Indian agriculture and its aim was to intensify colonial loot of the country.

      Historians and writers have collected many examples of the impoverishment of the people of India by this destruction of Indian industry and by especially targeting agriculture for exploitation. Macaullay’s own admission is in these words, “Delicate women, who had never ventured out of their homes and never seen the sun, touched the feet of passerbys, spread their hands and begged for a fistful of rice Scores of corpses of the hungry were swept in the Hoogly river past the mansions and gardens of the British to disappear into the sea.”

      Renowned poet Ashraf Ali Khan ‘Fuga’ described the impoverishment of the people of the country in words which captured the piteous condition of the people. Marx has mentioned the destructive effects and the regeneration in the context of colonial rule in India. The British colonial rulers gave full effect to the destruction of the country. Of the other aspect Marx said “The Indians will not reap the fruits of new elements of society” till “in Great Britain itself the now ruling classes shall have been supplanted by the industrial proletariat” or till they “themselves shall have grown strong enough to throw off the English yoke all together. Marx said the situation of the Indian people was one of losing an old world and not getting a new one. The sympathy of Marx and Engles was with the war of independence of 1857-59 because only by “fully overthrowing the yoke” of British colonialists did they see the road for the regeneration of India.

      The widespread participation of the people in the war of independence of 1857-59 can be easily understood in the context of their impoverishment by colonial rule. However in this the role of the peasantry and the peasant in uniforms (sepoys) was main. Despite this the intellectuals of the ruling classes of India either opposed this or understood it mainly as a revolt of feudals. Bankimhandra Chatterjee, Ram Mohan Roy, Sir Syed Ahmed openly criticized the war. Savarkar did call it the war of independence of India but mainly described the role of feudal rulers in it. Jawaharlal Nehru wrote, “Essentially, the revolt was a feudal outburst headed by feudal chiefs and their followers and aided by the widespread anti foreign sentiment.” (The Discovery of India)

      Here it is important to state that not only was there no feudal king at war with the British at the start of the war, but rather it is only because of the support of the feudal kings that British could maintain their rule over India. Scandia, Holkar, Thzam, Nawab of Rampur, Begums of Bhopal, Maharaja of Patiala, the Ranas of Nepal and many feudals stood with the British and the war of independence of 1857 had divided the feudal forces. A big section was with the British while the feudals opposing colonial rule jumped into the war. The war of independence of 1857-59 was fought between the British colonialists and their supporters on one hand and the people of India including some feudals on the other. Those who refute war of independence by showing the handful of participating feudals should remember : “The first blow dealt to the French monarchy proceeded from the nobility, not from the peasants.” (Karl Marx, On Colonialism)

      The main force of the war of independence of 1857-59 was the peasantry and the war extended against the pro English feudals also. However, it was not an anti-feudal peasant war but a war against colonial rule. In this context the comment of some writers are guilty of exaggeration. Even so, the support extended by major part of the feudals to the British exposes this false propaganda that this was a mere revolt by feudal forces.

      The war of independence declared Bahadur Shah Zafar as the Emperor of India but the aim of the war was neither to restore the old Mughal Sultanate, and nor did the circumstances to do so exist. In this context a reference to the letter written by Bahadur Shah Zafar to several kings is relevant: “It is my fervent desire that the foreigners should be thrown out of India using all means and at any cost. It is also my fervent desire that the whole of India should be freed from the foreigners. After throwing out the British from India I have no desire to rule for my own importance. If all you native rulers are ready to take up arms to throw out the enemy I am ready to give up my kingly powers to any elected group of native kings”.

      The most important issue in context to the war of independence of 1857-59 is its evaluation in view of social progress. Colonial rule which crushed living forces of Indian society could not be the harbinger of regeneration of India. Colonial rule along with feudal forces destroyed both, the industries and capitalism developing in feudal society and pushed the peasantry into a cycle of prolonged exploitation and backwardness. The main burden of the failure of the war of independence of 1857-59 fell on the peasantry and on artisans. Colonial rule tightened its collaboration with feudals because this was the reactionary section which could be of assistance in Colonial loot and plunder, could become the social base of colonialism and was incapable of existing independently from colonial rule. The social progress of India was only possible by uprooting the colonial rule along with its supporters.

      Comprador capitalists and feudals in the twentieth century made use of the anti colonial struggle to extract concessions from colonial rulers. After the weakening of imperialism following 2nd world war and in the context of the world wide intensification of anti colonial struggles, the comprador capitalists and feudals betrayed the independence struggle and reached an agreement for transfer of power with British imperialism. With this India changed to a semi colony from a colony and the alliance of imperialism – comprador bureaucrat capitalism – feudalism began exploitation and plunder of people of the country. The aim of democratic revolution in India was to uproot imperialism and its compradors but in 1947 the comprador classes reached an agreement with imperialism and foiled this struggle.

      Today too the exploitation and plunder of India by the alliance of imperialism – comprador bureaucrat capitalism and feudalism is continuing. The people of India are writhing under the loot of imperialist exploitation and feudal loot. The natural resources and labour of India are being exploited for the benefit of multinational companies of imperialist countries and comprador big corporates. The major part of the people of the country are victims of extreme poverty, impoverishment and backwardness. It is only by uprooting the ruling classes that this situation can be got rid off. That is, only by new democratic revolution in the country can a new India be built. Even today the enemies of revolution in our country are imperialism and its compradors.

      This is the relevance of the war of independence of 1857. The freedom struggle of 1857 is incomplete even today and can be completed only by agrarian revolution under the leadership of the working class.

      Harshad: To answer your question, yes, we should sign it. There is a heading titled “Bottom Line” which conveys that too. But MORE IMPORTANTLY, this was not written by me – this was written by a CNN-IBN journalist who understands this much better than you and me.

      This is a part of our initiative “The Indian Shitizen” started to put forth views about India by the common man i.e. you and I. One need not be a blogger at all – all one needs is an experience that made him/her feel strongly about our country. Even if one doesn’t have an experience to share, one can visit our blog to read through the various views expressed by people like you and me.

      And one can just send an email to theindiancitizens@gmail.com to get his/her post included. Let us know if you would be interested to share your experiences. Thanks.

      This initiative is running parallel on Blogspot (http://theindianshitizen.blogspot.com) and WordPress (http://theindiancitizens.wordpress.com)

      Hope this was short enough for you 🙂

    Sanjay Dutt sentenced to 6 years imprisonment 

    Sanjay Dutt, the film actor of Mumbai based film industry and one of the accused in the 1993 Mumbai Bomb blasts has been sentenced to imprisonment of 6 years by the special TADA court which is giving final touches to the case..11 people have been given death sentences, while 9 have been given life inprisonment. There are several aspects to this case, where many common people, especially the ones who lost their near ones in the 93 blasts feel that the accused should be meted severs punishment, and going by the current scene, it can be said that the court is doing a right job.

    Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt too has many supporters who believe that he is innocent…thats the sade situation in this case..Sanjay Dutt should have been given more harsh sentence, but because of his friendly ties with the curent ruling party, the Indian National Congress, there can be a possibility of some authorities to maintain a soft corner to him. The Bollywood, the hindi film industry always supports Sanjay Dutt, considering a fact that a lot of money has been invested in his films, however, I hope that Sanjay Dutt gets to spend 6 years in jail. He totally deserves more then that, but because of great Indian democracy(rather a circus),judges have a pressure on them…considering the fact that media has got a lot of hyperinterest in campaigning for Sanjay Dutt. Arseholes..!!!

    Dawood Ibrahin, the Pakistani based international terrorist is another wanted in the Mumbai 93 blast case. I read that the FBI is warning Pakistan to hand over Dawood Ibrahim to them, now its interesting to observe what thaings are going to take place in the future..

    A practical approach for blocking Orkut and saving trouble 

    From the past few days theIndian media is in all sorts of frenzy, displaying the news and reports telling that Indian government has instructed CERT India to ‘ban’ Orkut access primarily because,

    1. Indian authorities believe that Orkut allowes creation of flame communities that pack enough ammunation to set cities on fire and a punch that hurts the fragile ego of icon worshippers.

    2. Orkut is a place where loners waste their bandwidth hunting for girls, their personal details, a photograph or pieces of vital info.

    3. Orkuts a facinating place where you can abuse anyone, yes anyone, ranging from George Dubya Bush to the local administration without the fear of getting in line of fire. Although too much abusing or ranting can lead to your profile or community being marked as fake. But why bother , you can create plenty of fake accounts.

    4. Orkut is also a place where one can secretly plan their next rave party without the cops noticing it.

    Actually, I am not sure that this is what the government or authorities think of, but these all activites are being carried out on Orkut. No doubt about it. And I also know that the democratic government of India will try as little as possible to ‘ban’ it, afterall, the govt has so many daunting tasks ahead of them, be it the election of new president after Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the Chinese theat claims over Arunachal Pradesh, the rising value of ruppee against the US dollor(Huh, isent this thing funny? The rise of ruppee against dollor is extremely conducive to the booming Indian economy, but is a warning bell for the cheap service industry that is the home of US BPOs etc. Strange ways of economy. What to lose and what to keep?)

    On top of it, people get mad each time they discover that Orkut is being misused by sadistic outfits for achieving their targets. Orkut certainly gives a nice facility to create various groups and read a wide audience, but is it vitally necessary to get involved in Orkut to a level where we find it difficult to communication without the digital network? I mean the analog social network, the real one is much more good option.

    Some reasons for Orkuts wide misuse

    1. It allows creation of fake profiles and hate communities. Although theres provision for reporting it as bogus, the procedure isent foolproof. It can work either ways. Using this facility, someone can report a persons profile as bogus, even though that individual may be posting the truth. Who is to decide that the validity and quality of contents posted are in interest of community or no? Tough job, AI hasent reached this height as of now.

    2. People have to learn to exist in digital world. Even if the digital world is limited to a few dark servers placed on unknown datacenters, the impact they cause on real lifes can be damaging. It cannot be blamed on any digital network. People carry their personality, their good, bad attributes, imperfections, ideologies where ever they go. When this happens, usually theres trouble, leading to unstability.

    Inspite of everything, Orkut wont be ‘banned’, no one except the Chinese govt has the courage to ‘ban’ Google, but I still think that Orkut needs to be ‘blocked’ in offices, corporations, at place of work, school, colleges, government sections, public places etc. Doing this will be more feasible. Majority of well known companies block access to Orkut site, the reason is very simple – Dont want to distract the employees attention from work, and dont want to get into any legal trouble because of any employees miscreant activies.

    In schools and colleges, we go to study and not surf the web. Its common sense. We dont want to expose students to ill effects of bad company.

    So, that leaves us to homes. Yes, at home, we are free to do  anything. Access Orkut from your home.

    Moral of the story – Orkut cannot be ‘banned’ in India but it certainly can be ‘blocked’ by using proxy servers. Any digital social network can be a great tool to explore the world around us, but till the time we dont find a common unified way of understanding the ‘real’ world, we might face these problems forever.

    And as usual, as far as I am concerned, I personally feel that there are lot of other problems in this world that need a top priority attention example – Global Warming, Rise of terrorist outfits etc. It makes little sense to quarrel and argue over a damm freaky Orkut.

    The secret behind Bob Woolmers untimely death 

    On 18 March 2007 (the day after Pakistan’s unexpected defeat to Ireland) Bob Woolmer was found unconscious in his hotel room in Kingston, Jamaica. He was taken to the nearby University Hospital but it was later confirmed that he had died.

    It was a bizzaire news for the most, but there are some very secret motives hidden deep into the dark side of the moon. There are several speculations that point towards the match fixing bookies, but a very interesting theory has come to light.

    Could the US secret agencies like FBI or CIA behind this? Or is it the job of Pakistani Secret Service, the ISI done for giving Mussharaf a cue – Your time is up..?Or is it the job of international mafia bookies whose match fixing tricks are destroying the spirit of cricket?

    One thing is sure – The US now has realized that Mussharaf is unable to control the fanatic terrorist groups within his state. This is particularly dangerous for US troops lying stagnant in neighbouring Afghanistan, where the Taliban and Al Kaida are preparing to make a comeback, not fully though. Dubya Bush cannot afford to suffer loss due to troubled situations in Iraq and Afghanistan. On top of it, there is a deep discontent among top Pakistani military administration and the common public, esp the world saw the raging civilians marching against the recent removal of Supreme Court Judge.

    Whatever it may be..things are getting murkier as the time progresses..Indian needs to keep a watchful eye on these developments that take place. Another fanatic leader taking over Pakistan is gonna create trouble for India.

    An update March 24 12:29 IST

    Its now confirmed by the Jamaica Police that Bob Woolmer was murdered “due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation.

    The Jamaica Police has conducted a DNA test on Pakistani team and there is a strong chance of someone wrongdoing the South African for fear of getting exposed in match fixing scandal.
    Meanwhile, in India, Bob Woolmer is getting the media attention much more then what he used to get when he was alive..Watching the news channels for the day, I believe that conspiracy surround Woolmers muder is more important then any national issue. Now for rest of week, the news sleuths will be behind every detail occuring in Jamaica, and the media hype will be at its peak and we will get atmost bizzaire theories from the immature Indian TV channels. Pathetic dogs..

    According to some newsmakers example IBN-7, Inzamam is the prime culprit, while some(TIMES NOW, NDTV) are suspecting Danish Kaneria(the sole hindu player in pakistani team) for his passiveness in this case. Its funky to watch the half baked speculations that media makes..Whatever that might take… Match fixing cartels and mafias now rule the game along with the new underground bosses – the sponsers, who are sure to suffer huge revenues if India gets out of the competition cheaply..Afterall, not everyday one can invest million dollors and get nothing in return..

    Meanwhile, in other developments, the Indian team is yet again on slump of getting outbursted..with scores reading something as 43-2. I am not gonna stay awake for idiots like them. If they win, its good, if they dont, I will be happy..

    Tags: Bethlehem, , Christianity, Church, Doubting Thomas, Harappa, , Islam, Israel, Issa, Jerusalem, Jesus Christ, Jesus Tomb, Kashmir, Maria Magdalena, Myths in Christianity, ,   

    Jesus’s grave is in India and not Jerusalem 

    It aint very surprising. No matter what the current controversy might be, its a reality that Jesus wasent buried in Jerusalem as per the current media speculation, but almost thousands of kilometers away, into Gods own land – India into the most disputed and Pakistani terrorized region of today ie Kashmir.

    The Russian scholar, Nicolai Notovich, was the first to suggest that Christ may have gone to India. In 1887, Notovich, a Russian scholar and Orientalist, arrived in Kashmir during one of several journeys to the Orient. At the Zoji-la pass Notovich was a guest in a Buddhist monastery, where a monk told him of the bhodisattva saint called “Issa”. Notovich was stunned by the remarkable parallels of Issa’s teachings and martyrdom with that of Christ’s life, teachings and crucifixion.

    For about sixteen years, Christ travelled through Turkey, Persia, Western Europe and possibly England. He finally arrived with Mary to a place near Kashmir, where she died. After many years in Kashmir, teaching to an appreciative population, who venerated him as a great prophet, reformer and saint, he died and was buried in a tomb in Kashmir itself.

    The first step in Christ’s trail after the Crucifixion is found in the Persian scholar F. Mohammed’s historical work “Jami-ut-tuwarik” which tells of Christ’s arrival in the kingdom of Nisibis, by royal invitation. (Nisibis is today known as Nusaybin in Turkey) . This is reiterated in the Imam Abu Jafar Muhammed’s “Tafsi-Ibn-i-Jamir at-tubri.” Kersten found that in both Turkey and Persia there are ancient stories of a saint called “Yuz Asaf” (“Leader of the Healed”), whose behaviour, miracles and teachings are remarkably similar to that of Christ.

    The many Islamic and Hindu historical works recording local history and legends of kings, noblemen and saints of the areas thought to be travelled by Jesus also give evidence of a Christ like man; the Koran, for example, refers to Christ as “Issar”. Further east, the Kurdish tribes of Eastern Anatolia have several stories describing Christ’s stay in Eastern Turkey after his resurrection. These traditional legends have been ignored by the theological community.

    Kersten also suggests that prior to Christ’s mission in the Middle East, he may have been exposed to Buddhist teachings in Egypt. After his birth in Bethlehem, his family fled to Egypt to avoid Herod’s persecution. Surprisingly some scholars now acknowledge that Buddhist schools probably existed in Alexandria long before the Christian era.

    More clues are drawn from the Apocrypha. These are texts said to have been written by the Apostles but which are not officially accepted by the Church. Indeed, the Church regards them as heresy since a substantial amount of the Apocrypha directly contradicts Church dogma and theology. The Apocryphal ‘Acts of Thomas’, for example, tell how Christ met Thomas several times after the Crucifixion. In fact they tell us how Christ sent Thomas to teach his spirituality in India. This is corroborated by evidence found in the form of stone inscriptions at Fatehpur Sikri, near the Taj Mahal, in Northern India. They include “Agrapha”, which are sayings of Christ that don’t exist in the mainstream Bible. Their grammatical form is most similar to that of the Apocryphal gospel of Thomas. This is but one example giving credibility to the idea that texts not recognised by the Church hold important clues about Christ’s true life and his teachings.

    In tracing Christ’s movements to India and beyond, Kersten also discovered that many of his teachings, which have been gradually edited out of the modern Bible were originally Eastern in nature. Principles such as karma and re-incarnation, for example, were common knowledge then, and seem to have been reaffirmed by Christ. Imagine the implications that this discovery holds for Western Christianity and its churches, who have kept Christ in their doctrinal top pockets and have constrained the entire Western culture within the narrow teachings of blind faith, organised religion and original sin!

    Further clues are cited from The Apocryphal Acts of Thomas, and the Gospel of Thomas which are of Syrian origin and have been dated to the 4th Century AD, or possibly earlier. They are Gnostic Scriptures and despite the evidence indicating their authenticity, they are not given credence by mainstream theologians. In these texts Thomas tells of Christ’s appearance in Andrapolis, Paphlagonia (today known as in the extreme north of Anatolia) as a guest of the King of Andrappa. There he met with Thomas who had arrived separately. It is at Andrapolis that Christ entreated Thomas to go to India to begin spreading his teachings. It seems that Christ and Mary then moved along the West coast of Turkey, proof of this could be an old stopping place for travellers called the “Home of Mary”, found along the ancient silk route. From here Christ could easily have entered Europe via France. He may have even travelled as far as the British Isles, for in England there is an ancient oak tree called the “Hallowed Tree” which (says local legend) was planted by Christ himself.

    In his travels through Persia (today’s Iran) Christ became known as Yuz Asaf (leader of the Healed). We know this because a Kashmiri historical document confirms that Isa (the Koranic name for Christ) was in fact also known as Yuz Asaf. The Jami – uf – Tamarik, Volume II, tells that Yuz Asaf visited Masslige, where he attended the grave of Shem, Noah’s son. There are various other accounts such as Agha Mustafa’s “Awhali Shahaii-i-paras” that tell of Yuz Asaf’s travels and teachings all over Persia. It seems that Yuz Asaf blessed Afghanistan and Pakistan with his presence also. There are for example two plains in Eastern Afghanistan near Gazni and Galalabad, bearing the name of the prophet Yuz Asaf. Again in the Apocryphal Acts of Thomas, Thomas says that he and Christ attended the Court of King Gundafor of Taxila (now Pakistan), in about 47AD, and that eventually both the King and his brother accepted Christ’s teachings. Kersten claims that there are more than twenty one historical documents that bear witness to the existence of Jesus in Kashmir, where he was known also as Yuz Asaf and Issa. For example the Bhavishyat Mahapurana (volume 9 verses 17-32) contains an account of Issa-Masih (Jesus the Messiah). It describes Christ’s arrival in the Kashmir region of India and his encounter with King Shalivahana, who ruled the Kushan area (39-50AD), and who entertained Christ as a guest for some time.

    {Christ’s life in India, after the crucifixion, challenges current Church teachings at their very foundation. The theology of Saint Paul, the major influence on modern Christianity, is empty fanaticism in the light of this discovery.|

    The historian Mullah Nadini (1413) also recounts a story of Yuz Asaf who was a contemporary to King Gopadatta, and confirms that he also used the name Issar, ie. Jesus. There is also much historical truth in the towns and villages of Northern India to prove that Jesus and his mother Mary spent time in the area. For instance, at the border of a small town called Mari, there is nearby a mountain called Pindi Point, upon which is an old tomb called Mai Mari da Asthan or “The final resting place of Mary”. The tomb is said to be very old and local Muslims venerate it as the grave of Issa’s (ie Christ’s) Mother. The tomb itself is oriented East-West consistent with the Jewish tradition, despite the fact it is within a Muslim area. Assuming its antiquity, such a tomb could not be Hindu either since the Hindus contemporary to Christ cremated their dead and scattered their ashes as do Hindus today.

    Following Christ’s trail into Kashmir, 40km south of Srinagar, between the villages of Naugam and Nilmge is a meadow called Yuz-Marg (the meadow of Yuz Asaf, ie. Jesus). Then there is the sacred building called Aish Muqam, 60km south east of Srinagar and 12km from Bij Bihara. “Aish” says Kersten is derived from “Issa” and “Muqam” place of rest or repose. Within the Aish Muqam is a sacred relic called the ‘Moses Rod’ or the ‘Jesus Rod’, which local legend says, belonged to Moses himself. Christ is said to also have held it, perhaps to confirm his Mosaic heritage. Above the town of Srinagar is a temple known as “The Throne of Solomon”, which dates back to at least 1000BC, which King Gopadatta had restored at about the same time as Christ’s advent. The restoration was done by a Persian architect who personally left four inscriptions on the side steps of the temple. The third and fourth inscription read: “At this time Yuz Asaf announced his prophetic calling in Year 50 and 4” and “He is Jesus — Prophet of the Sons of Israel”! Herein lies a powerful confirmation of Kersten’s theory. Kersten suggests that Christ may have travelled to the South of India also, finally returning to Kashmir to die at the age of approximately 80 years. Christ’s tomb, says Kersten, lies in Srinagar’s old town in a building called Rozabal. “Rozabal” is an abbreviation of Rauza Bal, meaning “tomb of a prophet”. At the entrance there is an inscription explaining that Yuz Asaf is buried along with another Moslem saint. Both have gravestones which are oriented in North-South direction, according to Moslem tradition. However, through a small opening the true burial chamber can be seen, in which there is the Sarcophagus of Yuz Asaf in East-West (Jewish) orientation!

    According to Professor Hassnain, who has studied this tomb, there are carved footprints on the grave stones and when closely examined, carved images of a crucifix and a rosary. The footprints of Yuz Asaf have what appear to be scars represented on both feet, if one assumes that they are crucifixion scars, then their position is consistent with the scars shown in the Turin Shroud (left foot nailed over right). Crucifixion was not practised in Asia, so it is quite possible that they were inflicted elsewhere, such as the Middle East. The tomb is called by some as “Hazrat Issa Sahib” or “Tomb of the Lord Master Jesus”. Ancient records acknowledge the existence of the tomb as long ago as 112AD. The Grand Mufti, a prominent Muslim Cleric, himself has confirmed that Hazrat Isa Sahib is indeed the tomb of Yuz Asaf!

    Thus Kersten deduces that the tomb of Jesus Christ Himself is in Kashmir!

    The implications of Kersten’s discovery are monumental. Christ’s life in India, after the crucifixion, challenges current Church teachings at their very foundation. The theology of Saint Paul, the major influence on modern Christianity, is empty fanaticism in the light of this discovery. Threatened also are the doctrines of obedience to the Church, original sin, salvation through blind faith and the non-existence of reincarnation, etc. Yet these ideas underlie the morality and ethics, (or lack of them), that govern the entire Western social structure, from the legal system to medical health care schemes. It is no wonder that the modern Churches and their secular interests refuse to consider such a proposition as Kersten’s!

      Kersten’s book on Jesus In India is quite an authorotative work and very logically argued. That is made extreme good and logical sense to me. I have written about the book at two different sites : Sulekha and Boloji.
      the impact is tremendous : that religions have a fairly common base of beliefs which had been artificailly placed at opposites in the theories propounded by the Catholic and other churches. Imagine what history would have been if that had not happened. how many wars would not have happened. one dreads to thinks of how many wars may not take place to prevent the acceptance of these facts, unless humankind shows a new found maturity towards religious matters

        Kersten’s book on Jesus in India is very good fiction story. Nothing true in it. If you do not know any thing about Historical Jesus, no body can help you. Jesus was crucified and died on the cross, during the reign of Tiberius at the hand of Pontius Pilate, who was the governor of Judea state in Israel , at that time. Two Main Historian, Cornelius, Tacitus (Ca. 56-120) Annals – and Flavius Josephus, mentioned Jesus crucifixon and death in the Roman History. Who and why bring the body of Jesus from Jerusalem to Kashmir in India for bury? Jesus’s name is universal name in all over the world, not only in the Bible, but in Hidus Vedas ( Bhavishya Puran 19:23) and Quran also.

          There is no real proof that Jesus died during crucifixion. He was put on the cross on a Friday afternoon and then removed before sundown. Nobody dies of crucifixion within a few hours. Back then you had a bunch of stupid people (Jesus included) who thought reviving from a state of unconsciousness means coming back from the dead.

            Two Main Historian, Cornelius, Tacitus (Ca. 56-120) Annals – and Flavius Josephus, mentioned Jesus Crucifixion and death in the Roman History. Do you have an evidence of challenge it? How much do you know about India and Indian History? Indian History never said any thing about Jesus Grave in Kashmir (India) Rama, Krishna, Ganesha( Hindu’s Gods), even biggest war of Mahabharata, never mentioned in Indian History, but a wast majority of Indians and other people of the world still believing of these Hidus Gods and things? You believe Jesus was crucified on Friday and removed from the cross before sun down in unconscious or trauma stage. How do you know He was not died on cross? If Jesus was not died on cross, why you are believing in his Crucifixion? If any death penalty of any criminal in Roman History is not unsuccessful, why the death penalty of Jesus could be unsuccessful? The people are using the Jesus name as his grave in Kashmir (India) for making the money only of the real grave of Yuz Asaf. Yuz Asaf’s grave in Kashmir is not enough statement for a proof of Jesus grave in India. Do you know, What happen about two richest Jude’s people, after the funeral of Jesus (Nicodemus and Joseph of Armatia, who were involved in Jesus funeral and were the members of Jude’s council? If Jesus was stupid, than every christian is stupid, and Christians are stupid, it means majority of the people (Christians) in this world are stupid. And a wast majority of people of this world is stupid than the few people like you can not be wise. God bless.

      What a wonderful insight ? Buddhism and Christianity are very similar, hence, I feel that Christ’s missing years as a young man must have been spent in the Tibetan monastery. Human thinking with its ego has destroyed the union of not only human brotherhood but that of true logic based solely on humanitarian ethics.

      I have often contemplated what would happen if the mainstream media would publish this bravely and boldely ? Would there be a revolution of the mind and dispensing off the fears of social taboos and the clinging onto of ideals into images which have caused war and misery and chaos on this planet. The historical facts of Christ seem very plausible indeed as the pieces of the jigsaw fit neatly, compared to the fake and money making scheme of the novel called “Da vinci code”

      I am not sure if what you say is true. Haven’t even finished reading and I am not that instructed into these topics.

      Just appears to me (at a first glance to your post) that some of these details may distract us from the essence of faith.

      What we might learn from these things are not necessary to believe (or to find happiness), though interesting to know. I think Christ is alive in the souls of us Christians, this way He lives in us and us in Him: “No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us” (1 Jn. 4:12)

      There are many evidences to show that Jesus went to India and even died there…all people who go out to find these evidences eventually become convinced of it. Only people who stay home and are too lazy to study anything themselves will never ever find the truth…The truth is out there for all to grab….If only you people knew what scholars are discovering about the historical Jesus, you would realise to what extent we can have false impressions by seeing what Christianity has become today…Visit my blog to find my own research:

      this is a reply to Mr.Rechards comments on Da Vinci code.
      The novel da vinci code by Dan Brown was not about jesus’s life or whether he died on cross, it was about his deciple mary magdelene and a major portion of the theory about mary magdelene being christs wife was taken from a international bestseller book called “holy blood holy grail”.So get a life Richard, the da vinci code was not written for cheap publicity or on baseless theories.

      The Rozabal Line, a novel by Ashwin Sanghi, covers the material of Kersten in the form of a fast-paced thriller. It assumes that Jesus spent his missing years in India studying spirituality under Buddhist masters and then returned to Jerusalem. It then goes on to postulate that he returned to India (having survived the crucifixion). The key thriller component being the hypothesis that there could be a surviving bloodline in Kashmir.

      Bhavishya Puran / Surya Puran – which consider main deity as SUN (Surya Dev) – It talks about all things going to happen in future. About Islam, Christanity ! So do it mentions about Macca’s sacred stone as Shiv Ling ( Lord Shiva’s Lingam (penis)) and mentions about saint Issa’s coming to Kashmir ( may be Srinagar ).
      However most important thing is what Andres already said –
      I am putting in my way – no matter where Christ lived or Died. More important is follow the teaching of a noble and saintly person.

      But thats a problem with every Sect/Religion people forget about teaching and start praying teacher -> and make a another sect -> buisness -> propaganda … so on .. If its not true with every , then its true with mostly !

    Police planning to ban Orkut in India 

    According to media reports, the Pune police is in full swing to ban Orkut, the Google owned digital social networking tool following its controversial communities and its probable role in anti social activities.

    To a certain extent, I feel that there is a ‘real’ need in maintaining Orkut. Given its liberal policies, a madman can create real mess on Orkut by creating hate topics, insultive discussions and also spoil images of well known personalities. Its sort of a free ground for cheap and unconstructive publicity. And after the recent blasts, things are turning pretty hot.

    But is banning a solution to this problem?

    Nope. Given Googles brand influence, I dont think it will be practically possible. Even if the police dont succumb to the influence of any media, there still will be a wide disarray among the ‘anti-social’ elements in the society. Only China is the state which officially monitors Google content. So much so the my blog – The First Tones of Freedom cannot be viewed on any Chinese ISP, sole reason being the word – Freedom, I preach about the importance of Freedom and Liberty in life..

    Anyway – A middle path should be adopted and Orkut should make use of a better ‘Report as Bogus’ system. I mean its ridiculous the way things are handled as of now. Things will be clear in a few days.

      The motive is to gain the fabulous sensuous pleasures & Rewards ( 72 virgins & all luxuries etc for each ) promised for them & their families too in the KORAN. To know more about it refer to the celebrated PENGUIN translation of Koran by NJ Dawood, or any other version or refer to Google. See Chapters(Sura/Verses) 56/(12 to 40),55/( 54 to 56),55/ (72to-74), 76/ (12 to 22), .This is the easiest way for dropouts, drifters, idlers & terminally ill to pass off in great glory as Martyrs & also benefit their families who only rejoice & never grieve for their death . Now even educated youths are being brainwashed to be more religious & do their” duty” by using sophisticated methods like- food & gas poisoning, nuclear blasts, aircraft sabotage, ship attacks,car bombing etc. to gain these sensuous rewards in Paradise .Thus most of them are silent members of ‘SLEEPER CELLS ‘ ready to act on their own. All muslims are not Jihadis but ALL Jihadis have proved as muslims. Is this not true ? Worldwide publicity should be given for this despicable hidden motive & the Radical Fundamentalist leaders must be made to denounce & deny these acts & issue a FATWA warning that their families will be outcasted , deported & lynched. They will never do it –as they are a party to it & are actually rejoicing after the killings.—-Your comments please—

      I don’t feel Orkut should be banned in a democratic country like India. Banning Orkut is not a permanent solution to this problem, as the controversial postings can be made through other social networking sites and blogs too. The only difference is that, Orkut is a bit more popular.

      There should be an official government organization to keep track of the content being displayed in different websites. The general public should be able to contact this organization through digital means, probably through website and complain about the content in websites, anonymously. If this government body finds that the content is inappropriate, they should contact the website owners and demand to remove the content within a feasible deadline time. If its not removed even after this, then it is reasonable to consider banning as an option….

      You should lodge a complaint against the profile by consulting the police cyber cell. Next time you are giving a real example of Orkut exploits, make sure that you dont give away personal details, so many people read the first tones of freedom, I cant say how many of them are crooked, its better we learn to protect ourself.

      I think Orkut needs to be banned, atleast some communities and profiles definately..

      i think orkut should be banned.today if u search for a friend as by entering into the profiles of others,,,u must reach at crap profiles…which have written abuse in their profiles.,,nudity in pictures, and their views are very cheap…
      there r lot my communities which very openly talk about sex,sex practices,sexual parts…….i was shocked …i trembed after visiting that profile

      Orkuts in serious trouble right now. In Mumbai, India, a boy named Adnan was killed by his friends who had befriended him through Orkut..!!

      All Orkut users

      Beware, stay sharp, people are spying on you through Orkut medium, its highly unsafe place to distribute your personal information on Orkut.

      Guys! Banning Orkut will not actually solve the problem. Yes of course it can solve problems on temporary basis. Ultimately education is something that can solve the problem.

      People should attain maturity in things that they do. For which we need to be given the right education. Education does not start in schools or colleges, but starts at home. Parents should be paying attention to their children. Their activities need to be monitored and corrective measures should be taken.

      This may sound like a long term project, however this can solve 99% of the problem.

      Is Orkut a problem? or is it the people who are using it?

      Banning orkut doesnt solve this problem but instead of banning it, people who miss use it their accounts should be closed…… it really should not be banned because it is online community which makes meet ur friends which are or have gone away from us!!!!!!!!

      Hai i support it to be banned or esle i recommend google to make changes on their orkut project by providing individual security to every user .. this orkut project has lots of beneifts that one can find out anyone .. but as per human psychology is not correct one to be open always in virtual state .. great technology has been misued here .. many cases , many problems …in this project , everything is open …. theres no privacy at all .. so that any sort of problems may araise on every ones lives .. no doubt … i support it to be banned or altered by providing security to scarps and personnel informations …. Thanking u .. its my point of view …

      If all that Google would do is to enable privacy for everything, then I guess that move will spoil the entire concept of digital socializing, which in any case is a crap according to me.

      I think you should contact your local Police Station and lodge an FIR against the person, you can also request your friends to report the profile as bogus, and for the time being, stop attending unknown calls that do not have place in your contact list

      Orkut content needs to be moderated. Lot of objectionable material is being posted there and the site is patronized by the younger generation. Blatant exposure to such material can do more harm than good. Not only Police should take steps in this direction but even we as parents and social groups should take steps in this direction. Sooner the better it would be. Not only orkut but rediff qna is another site where lot of pornographic material is being posted. Issue should be taken up for this site as well.

      sir, I dont support that orkut should be banned in India but what I feel to some extent there is a risk in using orkut due to spam, spyware & hacking. There are some bad charecter people who are using orkut can do harm or hacking with other users account & profile because this is already happened with me. I am using orkut for the last two week but to my astonishment on yesterday dated 12 May, 2010 I found my own profile & name which I created in orkut has been missing & corrupted by another name of a girl along with a faceless photo of this girl. Who can do this thing ? However I
      Am not a girl but a boy. My own profile has been missing.

    How do we rise above racism towards respect and tolerance in society? 

    Political movements in certain parts of the world openly expound racist ideas. The dissemination of racist ideas is tolerated in the name of freedom of expression. The Internet is misused to propagate racial hatred. Globalization, which has so much potential to spread prosperity, can also result in economic disparity, cultural homogenization and marginalization of certain countries. We must ensure that globalization contributes to the overall well-being of all people in the world while at the same time respecting the uniqueness of different cultures and traditions.

    In any progressive country, tolerance and compassion are core values in society. There should be a development philosophy of “Gross National Happiness” where the individual well-being is the focus of all development initiatives.

    Humanity can only make headway if it acknowledges and draws on lessons from the evils of the past, in particular slavery, the slave trade and colonialism. We must acknowledge those crimes, not to twist the knife in the wound, but to better acknowledge that their lethal germs still persist. We are not here to humiliate anyone, but humanity can only take a decisive step forward if the whole truth of history is brought to light. If we want to overcome racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, we must restore the truth regarding the history of people who today find themselves on the bottom of the pile. We are not thinking about any kind of vengeance. Reconciliation not only asks for forgiveness, but also for repentance, sincere repentance. Sincere repentance must be active repentance. The international struggle against racism and racial discrimination requires a sensitive approach. Each voice in the international community must have a say. Debate must be promoted and a universal solution must be found out in peace and harmony.

    Thats it.

    Switch off the crap Bigg Boss/Bigg Brother 

    Pathetic and Weak‘ , ‘Intellectually Crap‘ – probably this is what a civilized society will say about (un)Reality TV based shows like Bigg Boss in India and Bigg Brother in UK.

    The so called reality in these shows promote *racism(Shilpa Shetty incident in UK), and often misguide the common public.(Bigg Boss in India) At least in Indian where many people glorify icons, this situation is certainly not favourable. Let me make it clear that none of the contestants of Bigg Boss are icons nor they deserve any public support. They are just strugglers dying to make some money out of the utter crap they present on the TV. Most of them have their careers slumped and it feels so disgraceful when the quality of TV shows is dropping to such a low level, man can it get some more worse then this?? Just for the sake of increasinf the viewer base or channel TRP, these blokes are ready to potray anything unuseful on the idiot box screen.

    Arrgh..someone needs to setup a few mandatory standards for the quality of TV shows all round the world, so that the general public interest is not harmed.

    No matter how much technology changes, no matter how sharp the picture and sound quality is superior, the idiot box is still considered to be a crap for its the lack of quality TV media.Its nothing but like creating a rift between various parts of the society. The idiot box has become more idiot and seemingly more dangerous..

    *Consistant use of racial comments can lead to the dawn of a new Hitler who will be more armed, more dangerous, more ambitious, more intelligent, more perfect then the previous one.

    Actually, in this age of globalization, such issues need not arise, but who cares..
