frankly, I have no interest in whatever story it is you are trying to tell ...

but, admittedly attempting to bait/trap is not very useful ...

somehow, I doubt that you will trap Valkan but I am quite certain that you will manage to obfuscate the issue ...

if your goal is that now everyone should sit through pages after pages while your little game is played out, you will probably succeed ...

alternately, you can post your analysis of the situation and what your point is ... (I am generously assuming that you do have a point) ...

Ahhhhh Sakhavu Sajanus Caesar returns with another barrage of misinformation!

Why don't you tell us why Marthanda Varma started the "Padmanabhan Dasa" system? (Oh wait, mebbe you are holding it back to trap us untermenschen?) Did the Kings of Travancore use this to stamp down other religions and lower castes? Okay, who do you think formed the bulk of his troops? (connected question- How did the Nairs, originally low caste groups of present day Kerala, ascend up the social ladder in these time?).
For that matter, how far did the "patronage" extend in ALL of India? Even the so called "Brahmana Conspiracy" that pulled down the Mauryas and propped up the Sungas did not result in any pogrom of the Buddhists (who DID misuse the imperial patronage), did it?

The realisation of the Supreme can be achieved through a variety of means..... Valkan is on the dot when he talks about Tantric and Satvic methods. The extreme methods of the Kapalikas and Kalamukhas were looked down upon by the "propah" devotees.... but even here there are a number of legends which point to the core idea behind Tantric Worship. (I remember HH posting one such legend in I-F). Maybe you (being a Mallu too) have heard of "Maraprabhu" or "Manjula Tree" legends of Guruvayoor. BTW, coming to bhakti of the "barbarian", ever heard of the legend of Kannappa of Sri Kalahasti? Heck... there was this practice called Veeracharam that would make Silas the Albino Monk look like Mohmd. Shah Rangila!
The Tantric methods are sometimes dismissed as Asampradayas and gained the bad rep due to the misuse by the Hippie types. Even from the ancient times these sects were subjected to much ridicule as seen from the socio-political satire Mattavilasa Prahasana (penned by the Pallava King Mahendravarma) and a number of Hindu religious texts. The birth of "realisation" via mortification, pain, trance or pleasure has sadly ample scope of attracting assorted sleaze bags and Dungeon Masters who use these perfectly viable paths as a cover for their hedonism. This is why the lay are NOT supposed to go into these without proper guidance as Valkan said. The weak/uninformed might be trapped in that transient state and find it difficult to push ahead into the light.

heck i love this cow slaughter and beef eating discussions.. :D :lol:

honestly, religious causes aside, beef from cows 'expired due to natural causes' wont be as tasty as freshly slaughtered cows. god forbid, what if tommorrow animal rights activists win and they want us to eat chicken meat only from 'chickens' that die naturally and not from slaughtered chickens? :) , or even worse, vegetarians win and they want all meat to be banned because it might incite riots from veggie folks?

American cows are hygienic while Indian cows are holy. Prefer a non holy hygienic tender cow on spit. Hummmmm summer is coming. Bring on my 28 Oz's tenderloin (socked in beer (Heineken preferably for at least 2 hrs) and marinated with just salt and paper oH lala) serve with lots of beer. Now thats what I am dreaming. :D :D :D

vishy,

may as well join in the fun before Shiv comes and locks the thread ...

here is a recipe for Dog I learned in the Northeast ...

1. Start with a Dog. Keep him hungry for days.

2. When he is starving, feed him losts of half-cooked rice.

3. As soon as the poor bugger is done wolfing down the rice, slaughter it.

4. Slow roast the dog over an open fire.

5. When done, slice open the dog.

now, the fun part ... discard the Dog ... The cooked Rice is the delicacy ... :lol:


you suppose a franchise called the The Hot-Dogger will do good business?

yes, ALL BEEF, ALL THE TIME ...

Here is what I learned from a French colleague about how to cook a good rare steak ...

1. start a fire

2. get a steak

3. Introduce them, as in "Fire this is steak ... Steak this is Fire"

Serve.

How dare you kill RICE? My majority religious sentiments are stamped over. RICE killing should be banned everywhere. That DOG was the reason behind RICE killing. TSJ where are you? Dont you think just because Alok wants to kill RICE, it is ok with EJs? Why you are not bringing issues about brown and black rice? Why they they should be neglected? Do BLACK rice get equal cleaning? Oh God sheer injustice I say.

A few posts ago, you insinuated that Hindu Dharma is not tolerant. Now, it is obvious that such an insinuation doesn't stick. What the government does - as a consequence to popular conviction - can't be blamed on Hindu Dharma as such.


It is not obvious to me at all. Is the injunction against cow slaughter religious, or cultural? I thought the primary premise was that it was cultural (dharmic?) and not religious. Then we find that there are religious strictures against cow slaughter that are being used by present day journalists, and indeed, holy persons (a simple google search will illustrate this). Regardless of which this is, such a situation serves to negatively affect freedoms of individuals.

What the government does - as a consequence to popular conviction - can't be blamed on Hindu Dharma as such.


Can "popular conviction" be "blamed" on Dharma?

Why doesn't the govt. allow free sale of prescription and illicit drugs, or legislate against smoking ? Is it only to "punish" people, or prevent death/injury ?


The discussion of this issue will take a while, suffice to say that an indepth (i.e., non-superficial) analysis will indicate that these laws are not driven by the prevention of death or injury, as much as they are driven by revenue motives and lobbies. The "prevention of death or injury" is a public veneer, to push other hidden agendas. Similarly, speed limits are fundamentally about local government revenues, but are pushed in the guise of reducing fuel consumption, and protecting other motorists from the "probability" of a crime being committed. As I noted, there is a long discussion that we can have there, and by and large, it is not relevant to the discussion at hand.

In any event, like PETA, the Cow Belt people believe in the animal rights of cows, and its violation triggers an automatic response.


The contention is that this "automatic response" is ultimately "premeditated" in nature, as there is not an immediate threat to human life or limb, and accordingly human beings have the luxury of time to think. Accordingly, the protection against "falsely shouting fire" does not apply, as slaughtering the cow doesn't place human beings at risk - it is the deliberate action of the mob that places other human beings at risk.

In the context of "falsely shouting fire", the act of shouting is what causes human beings to act irrationally to save their own life or limb, placing their own life or limb in danger.

The threat of mob violence is being used to PROTECT civilians.


The threat of mob violence is being used to prevent cow slaughtering. Cow slaughtering by itself doesn't physically harm "civilians." Civilians are not at danger of anything other than the mob violence itself.

Valkan says:
Sure.
in response to:
How is this different from Shah Bano? Was the government of the day justified in saying "lets not take chances", and modify the constitution?


See, here is where I disagree with you. Man has certain rights that a "social contract" between social groups should not be able to take away.

And more than anything else, the notion that "preventing mob violence" by appeasing the mob, should be called what it really is - "mob rule." Is "mob rule" what we really want?

There is an entire regiment (the Mahar Regiment) that is composed of people from a caste that could be considered among the 'Dalits'.

There is another regiment (Sikh Light Infantry) that recruits heavily from the 'Dalit' castes among the Sikhs.

Both these regiments have a long and illustrious history with many medals for gallantry in combat.

The officers in the armed forces are recruited on merit after a competitive selection process. No data is kept about their castes, but there is no reason to assume that there aren't Dalit officers in the army.

As for the tribals there is at least one regiment that I know of, the Naga regiment, that recruits from the Naga tribals of the Northeast.

Tribals of Jharkhand region join the Bihar regiment in large numbers.
Both these regiments again have an illustrious history with many medals of gallantry.

India's last President was a Dalit.

The head of the constituent assembly that wrote India's constitution 60 odd years ago, was a Dalit.

You don't know these elementary facts about India, and yet you continue pontificating. :roll:

Since you probably wouldn't believe the words of a Yindoo anyway, why don't you at least take some lessons from Johann about historical and modern India?

please don't make fun of WOT related issues ...

Congress has left its indelible mark on All Foods Right and Relevant ...

they are the proud inventors of Freedom Fries ...

so the technically correct question to ask is, "Are Freedom Fries served in Iraq?" ...

I promise to delete all my Beef posts if others do ...

but, quite honestly, we have barely scratched the surface of all that is there to the topic of Beef ...

Should the Kyoto Accord ban Beef?

Who is "pontificating"? I just asked a few questions that I did not know the answers to.

It appears I have upset people by asking questions so I will stop. But I would make the observation that dietary considerations can be very important.

1. ABout 150 years ago Indian troops had a problem with bullets lubricated with beef lard.

2. Emergency rations that the US military drops are vegetarian. This was held in great ridicule by Afghans.

3. McDonalds was sued by a Desi lawyer for using beef flavor in their vegetarian fries in the US.

And so it goes. So, no more questions from me.

The troops in an infantry regiment of the Indian Army are usually recruited from the same part of India. The food they are served takes into acount their nutritional needs and the cuisine that they are used to in their part of the country, and their religious taboos.

For example, the Jat regiment whose troops are mostly vegetarian Hindu Jats from the north and northwest, would not serve any kind of meat in the chow hall. The Rajput Regiment would serve meat but no beef. A regiment with many Muslim troops would not serve pork. I have not read any regulation anywhere that units with majority of Muslim or Christian troops cannot be served beef.

Instead of poking fun at the Indian Army, if you really want to learn the nitty-gritty of how the Indian Army works, you should page Brigadier RayC. He can tell you all you need to know but you should talk to him with respect.

BTW, a lot of Indian Army regulations were written by the British. Do you think they would not have had beef served in the mess halls?

Why stop at vegetables? Dont they have life? How can you be so insensitive to grains, roots, leaves and shoots? I am really disappointed by your lack of sensitivity towards RICE KILLING. Why it does not bother you when small small RICE grains are mercilessly killed by boiling them in hot water. How cruel? Have we really lost our heart?

Kakkaji, correct me if i am wrong. Christians in india are predominantly mutton eaters, not beef eaters. beef eaters in india are mostly Muslims and ofcourse , desi expats in teh US who went over to the McDarkside burgers..

Re. all this fuss about 'ban on cow slaughter' by Calvin:

Why isn't the slaughter of dogs and cats for food allowed in the U.S.? Isn't that an infringement on the rights of Korean-Americans and others whose native culture allows consuming these animals for food?

Recently there has been a big movement to stop the slaughter and export of horse meat to France for human consumption. As a result, the slaughterhouses are closing, and many horse owners in Kentucky are abandoning their horses and starving horses are wandering around the countryside.

Not sure. Perhaps Calvin and Rakesh can respond. I know Rakesh is a Christian from a state where cow slaughter is legal, and fresh beef is readily available.

I think many Parsi delicacies are beef-based.

if the US had a 130 million population segment that eat cats and dogs, you can bet your money that eating cats and dogs would perfectly be legal in the US. but they dont and hence the ban.

Whats the beefeating population in india? See my post above for an idea.

I started eating BEEF in India in a Parsi joint in PUNE (anyone from Pune will know the joint in camp). Yuuuuummmm still remember the old Bawa yelling at us yindoos for not following the religion.

And what, specifically, am I fighting for? Before you snap back a response, please review the preceding threads and *think* about what my posts have been about.

PS: if you want me to erase this message, I will certainly be glad to.


Now this is the strength of evangelical religions. I am sorry Sajan for my assumption here that you are a Christian either converted or born. It sounds so from your posts. My apologies if I am wrong.

How can Hindus possibly fight such a zombie machine (evangelical religions)? Now it is most likely that ancestors of Calvin and Sajan were Hindus but here they are fighting for their religion as if their life is under threat. If we fail then we too risk being either dead or turn into a zombie ourselves trying to spread these religions to our family and friends. X'nity and Islam being spread so far and wide that they get supporters from many different parts of the world. This support comes in many different ways; material, political, manpower, intelligence etc. They get new perspective, new thinking, new support with their spread in different countries. How can that be tackled? No wonder Sadler commented with exasperation that they just can't be stopped/defeated.

Well efforts can be made towards that but what is the price we are willing to pay for that? Shiv's question in earlier thread was very pertinent "What is exactly that we want to preserve?" Elephant headed god? Monkey god? Flesh eating goddess with multiple hands? Valkan I think attempted an answer to that question but it may vary for others. That itself sounds like a probelm to me as it displays lack of unanimity. Despite of saying all this I myself is at loss explaining what is it that I want to preserve. :( There is so much energy that is being wasted on this topic in India that if it were to be directed towards nation building that will be a great force to our advantage.

I believe India and Hinduism is not much of a potent threat to these zombie machines. I mean if it really were then we would have seen joining hands between X'nity and Islam just like they did to defeat USSR. Communism was a much potent threat in that it relegated religion to back side without caring for either religion. Both the God and Allah recognized that as a threat and they readily joined hands. Once that was achieved, they are now back at their age old game of slitting each other's throat (metaphorically) in the name of religion.

How are Hindus going to tackle that?

This is just my personal question that I wanted to share. I DO NOT WANT ANYBODY TO POST AN ANSWER TO THE LAST QUESTION ON THIS OPEN FORUM FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. This is my sincere request to you all.

Edit: Sorry Kelvin...I thought I double posted and deleted my earlier post.

No the Indian Military does not serve beef. More so, the Army insists on Jhatka style as opposed to Halal.

IIRC, the Afghans ridiculed these rations not because they were 'vegetarian', but because they consisted of items they had never seen before and did not like the taste of.

India has sent to Afghanistan tons of 'high-protein biscuits' made from wheat, and the Afghans found them just fine.

When I first came to the US, I intensely disliked the smell and taste of even vegetarian items that were served in the college dining hall. American food is an acquired taste for me.

Maybe but if I read Calvin correctly, he is arguing for the rights of a minority of one. By that standard I am sure there is at least one person in the US that would like to eat dogs or cats. :)

I hope Kelvin :) doesn't mind if I post these lyrics from the Cranberries (um cranberries, boiled in sugar and water reduced down, yum):

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, dou, dou, dou, dou, dou...

Another mother's breakin',
Heart is taking over.
When the vi'lence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they're still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a...
