Re: Indian History Discussions - III

These foreign dorks need to understand that caste is not a bad thing, its misuse and discrimination based on caste is. To explain this to a thick skulled CNN-watcher, compare this to race. Race is not a bad thing, but racism and and discrimination based on race is. :mad: Originally posted by rahul r...

Do any of the structures from Rama's time exist? Has anyone visited Ayodhya?

Re: Why has it become so cool to hate India

Namaskaru Kedar, my great grandpa was Bhandary from Kundapur so maybe we are related. :D People in general like to associate themselves with what is cool. This is particularly true with the losers, those who have no achievements of their own, so they want to bask off the reflected glory. If India wa...

Re: Why has it become so cool to hate India

Because we are not taught/brainwashed in school about Indian nationalism the way they do it here in the US. Here CNN and other media constantly drums patriotism in our ears all the time. However, we Indians do get patriotic at the right time as seen during Kargil. What I do hate is some Indians comi...

Re: Time to rethink NFU

What prevents us from canceling NFU at the last moment as we see fit? Have we signed a contract with anyone promising NFU? If not, all we have to do is swear by NFU and then change our stand when we decide on FU (no pun intended!). :-)

I dont agree with this. The US can always be asked to leave since we are not dependent on them for our daily livlihood.

George J is absolutely right, the meets are one of the best things about BR. Where else can I (and the rest of us) get to meet with a bunch of guys with common interests so much that we begin talking issues with people who are pretty much "strangers" right off the bat? :D

I noticed that we dont have a BR logo in Hindi. I understand that we should have it in English but I think its important that we have it somewhere in Hindi also. :)
