Re: Women's status in Indian society

Jarugn, your idea of Ad Council is well-taken. However, anyone who has seen the old-time Doordarshan will agree that the whole Doordarshan was one big stuffy Ad Council, making lame and boring public service messages on birth control, etc. Fact is, in India, as else where, Government just ends up ru...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

I don't tend to buy the argument that bollywood or TV is to be blamed for the ills that it shows the society, for the dirty role models it has to offer. Granted that in India, since other more formal education is not prevalant, people tend to learn by watching, and the stupidity and apeing of the we...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Susmito, sorry for jumping on the gun on my part as well.
Let's just put this behind.

I assume on your part, you would say Ram Krishna Mission to be very inspiring. If so, I would join you in that.

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Susmito, I don't see why this thread should be locked, unless ofcourse it goes way off course. You are welcome to have your reservations about Ekal Vidyalaya and its reasons to target tribals of India. I gave the facts on it already. I just don't get it as to when christian missionaries go to the tr...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Kaushal, thanks for your support. Susmito, Ekal Vidyalaya has as its goal reaching the tribals who have not been helped by 55 years of Indian democracy. From what I know, tribals make up a large proportion of India's population. And of the 120,000 tribal villages, only about 10% have any schools. Ab...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Kautilaya, check your e-mail. On another note, so many people/groups inspire me everyday! Krishna...(of course!!--after Bush Jr. telling a journo that his inspiration is Jesus!) But more seriously...Ammachi. Heck, even Dr. Kalam seems to be her disciple. She has rebuilt entire villages in Gujarat po...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

Indian pen-pushers have no qualms about mud-slinging the govt. on foreign policy and every other topic, just to show how macho they are. When it comes to saving one girl, they become pussy cats. Just shows the stupidity that's out there and the character of those who write our newspapers. Shame sham...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

I am glad that Narayan has been able to make you see the light. ;) Be that as it may; I seem to agree with eshwar here. Laws are already there, they need implementation. Katilaya, not just India is poor; poverty afflicts other soceities as well, but the way women are made to suffer in the Indian su...

Women's status in Indian society

Howdy! Following is a news story appearing in not only sify.com but also Indian Express. Such utter non-sense goes on in India, heck even in India's bigger cities. I wonder what all goes on in its smaller towns and villages? We look at the gang-rape case in Pakistan and feel a bit at easy, that atle...

Re: Lost City found off the Mahabalipuram coast

Delibes' famous "Flower Duet" (the theme British Airways uses in its ads) is also from an opera set in India. The story is about a British soldier seducing a Hindu princess. Sorry, i forget the name of the opera as such. ------- as it turns out...doing a simple search on "Flower Duet" on yahoo turne...

yeah, but does that limit India from making its own missiles longer-ranged?! I don't think so.<BR>And whatever help we get from Russia is clandestine anyways, so all I am saying is, if we are going for a whole new technology, that too after the leading powers have had it for a while, then we might a...
