Re: Tradition, Culture, Religion & Law in Indian Society

Some random comments: 1. Keeping it bulletized or numerically categorized does make it more tractable. Segregating them, as you did in your previous post (with text in it), allows one to know when we are moving to the next concept. And sometimes if a point is not clear, it allows us to move to the n...

Re: Tradition, Culture, Religion & Law in Indian Society

Got the 'disinterested' part right from when you first used that word, however I still tend not to believe it fully. There are many stories in puranas about gods granting boons to humans after penance etc e.g. Bhasmasura (humans to ashes), Arjuna (pashupata weapon etc). Perhaps they are exceptions. ...

Re: Sri Lanka - News and Discussion- Post PM appointment crisis

Actually, the word India is a direct 'gift/Trojan horse' from the Greeks. The greek ambassadaor to bharat Megasthenes, during the time of Chandra Gupta (about 150 BC) wrote a description about bharat and called it: Indica.

This is definitely OT but I'll say this: Word 'Hindu' is a verbally corrupted form of the word Sindhu (river Sindhu). It started with the Greeks and then the Persians (around 100 BC and later). At that point, it referred to all people who lived around and east of River Sindhu (no Christians and Musl...

Guys, all the numbers quoted (for seats) are only leads and not final results. Leads can switch as time passes. It is only 10:00 a.m. and a lot more counting to go. Can we hang our hat on these numbers (for Lok Sabha) at this point in time.
