Re: Western Universalism - what's the big deal?

Can you define dharma? Can you define freedom? PS Just noticed that Pulikeshi has put up a list. I can see nothing in that list that equates with the sense in which "freedom" is used. Shiv ji: No I cannot define dharma because it is a free variable in a meta rule. My understanding is (loo...

Re: India and Japan: News and Discussion

This is something Modi-sahab should fix sooner than later. We don't have an MRA [Mutual Recognition Agreement] with Japan. So Japan doesn't recognize our drugs and our doctors - even though its healthcare costs are escalating [due to TTPA]. And we end up with a trade deficit. http://www.business-sta...

KrisP. Immediately after Independence, there were ~600 Princely states that were under Subsidiary Alliance with the British.

Re: Indian Foreign Policy

From my point of view, The doctrine of non-reciprocity is inherently nonsense. In normal terms, without using some funda, all it means is that India is a sugar daddy. Even they want something in return. The doctrine inherently assumes reciprocity over a period of time. It says, I am doing you a fav...
