Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

I was looking into Yazidis couple of days back. A youtube video of their holy shrine at Lalish showed an interesting painting on wall. It seems a typical south Indian lady in Saree lighting a lamp. The painting (colors) does not seem a 1000+ yr old. Curious if this is true and whats the history (who...

Re: The Rohingya Menace

The govt seems to be on right track. Just provide humanitarian aid and assistance to Rohingyas in Myanmar/B-desh but no import of refugees into India.

There should be more talk in media/unofficial arm about the wealthy islamic countries of Saudi Arabia, iran and others to take in these refugees.
