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

I'm not on Twitter, please feel free to use the post or modify it as well! I just found it odd that highly educated people like geneticists don't seem much different from a Mayawati or Ramadoss of PMK. At least to me there seems to be intense focus on getting gene samples from Brahmins or SC/ST's. A...

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

I'm no expert but IMHO, any genetic study that seeks to establish indian ancestry is flawed when they seek gene samples by caste. The agenda has already been decided and all is left is to cherry pick data and force fitting the data to seek the pre-decided result. Aryan supremacy has just donned a la...

seems outrageous, doesn't it. However, many of the mainlanders seem to have this view, don't know how prevalent this view is. A taiwanese colleague who is also a mandarin teacher translated some of these views from online and said this is what they think of you.

Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

For China, India is a challenger because in terms of size, civilization and potential, there is simply no other country that can come anywhere near PRC. That makes China worried. China feels that if India joins the Quad (which it already has), then China's work to lord over India would double. Firs...

I for one wish China realizes that India is no enemy. India can be a threat but it is for them to convert that to an opportunity. An India that is on its team will accelerate the demise of the western powers after all we have more in common with them than the west. After a 1000 years, a non-monothei...

the likely explanation is, when Persians conquered Ionia (which in 500 BC was the centre of gravity of Greek thought.
