Putin is constipated. Xi has a bad back and is probably wearing his wife's corset under the suit. Modi on the other hand has great flexibility due to yoga and can therefore bend with ease.

She has been working really hard since the govt. came to power. Even before during the election she was very busy. She is one of my favourite persons in politics.

Pictures show a blink of an eye's worth. They're not a video to show proper body-language displayed by the actors. So unless you have videos to talk about, can we quit talking about body-language in these photos :) BENIS is of course, an exception.

satya wrote:There is shortage of young pujaris/pandits who can chant mantras/shlokas in sanskrit .Kashi pool is drying up and kids from traditional brahmin families in UP & Bihar are looking for employment in other sectors of economy.

The same situation exists in Kerala as well, so much so that there were media reports on the same. Temple priests in Kerala were traditionally Namboodiri Brahmins. Then came the Tulu Brahmins who filled the shortage for quite a few years. Now among these communities most of the boys have no inclination to take up this job, and have pretty much ignored any aspect of the traditional learning they should have. And now in few districts in Kerala (Palakkad mainly) priests from UP and Bihar have taken up the job :). And in an interview these folks (pretty young chaps) said that they get paid better, have a quarters to stay and can send some good amount back home. People are happy with them as well.

Namboodiri community showed a high craze for communism in the 1950s to 1970s. Pretty much every one was a commie, and this has now taken a toll on the temple priesthood business. A few of these commies (now 40+ old at least) have now became turncoats and have started going back. Not because of any love for Hindu Gods, but their own religious tag gives them an undue advantage (other communities cannot do Poojas). These folks have realised that this job has "reservations" for them. Another aspect which makes the young crowd skip the job is the 24/7 nature of the job. A priest has to be available pretty much every day during the course of the year. Their working hours are pretty odd (early mornings & early evenings) which makes their family life a bit problematic. Especially if their wives are working. The pay they get is also not commensurate with the nature of the job. And off course a priest has to live a life which is the society constantly checks (no booze, no non-veg etc. etc.).

KJoishy wrote:I wonder whether this is because the erstwhile Christian Govt of India was stealing Hindu money from the Hundis and using it for 'secular' purposes.

In Kerala this was a big debate. And finally the government won the debate. The government was able to clearly prove that money they received from Temple Hundis were distributed among other temples which did not get much income. As per the government, people are only bothered about temples which gets huge donations. But the various "Devaswom Boards" also have other temples which are small, and does not bring in much revenue. But "staff" is placed there for poojas, and they have to be paid as well. The government clearly stated that pro-Hindu organisations were making a big fuss only for temples which brought in lots of income :). So far I have not seen any response from this from pro-Hindutva organisations. In Kerala, Devaswom Minister is a Hindu, the Devaswom Board members are also Hindus, and the staff are also Hindus.

^^ This is the problem. People are viewing pujaris as "jobs". They are not a 'job' as such but rather out of love for the lord. What society has to do is pay these pujaris for acting as a 'facilitator' to obtain the lords grace. Ofcourse this is the ideal model. Ignorance/greed/arrogance together with indians' love for secularism has made this a "job" with reservations which makes the temple an "office" instead of the lords home as it should be. This deterioration will also result in improper worship and incorrect beliefs and superstitions all of which lead to the downfall of our culture. There was a reason that brahmins were the pujaris, but ignorance and arrogance of brahmins/caste system has created a situation wherein a role that requires a certain mental attitude is given to people based on reservations.

I have seen "pujaris" cut short rituals when the expected payment does not suit their fancy. They charge different rates depending on how people are dressed. They turn abusive when queried. How do youngsters in an unfamiliar town handle such a predicament??

Respect cuts and flows both ways. Better to put up a board with available services, rates and times so that all is above board.

Probably going OT, but even for certain special functionaries (like Pujari), if they are made to "earn their livelihood", are bound to become "professional", as in calibrate their level of service with the payment model. This is not an aadhunik phenomenon. Guru Drona, puts dharma at the feet of his employer. A certain amount of prestige associated with selfless service can be a sufficient compensation for some, for others it is not sufficient.

I would not like anyone to calibrate their level of service with the payment model when I buy tooth paste/boot polish or visit the doctor. If these things are to be reduced to "services" by the pujaris, then one has every right to know in advance what the terms are.

For certain rituals, the SHQ is trained and she always does the pujas free of cost if anyone requires it locally. NOTHING is expected for this, including transportation costs.

Interestingly, the requests are more from the lower strata of society leading one to some interesting conclusions about such "services" (and the associated payment model :) ) being provided by local pujaris.

Agree. But the priests themselves says they have to survive and at least make a decent living. In Kerala priests found it tough to find brides (even from their own community). Low income was stated as one reason, lack of professional prestige was another, nature of the job was yet another one. It was once considered that any body who worked as the priest was a dumbo, not even capable of doing manual work. So low was their standing. But now the trend seems to be slightly getting reversed. The income has increased, priests themselves say they have more "job security" than say IT-wallahs :). Professional prestige, work-life balance etc. may get sorted out in due course as well.

For the maturity level you suggest; i.e priests acting as a facilitator we may have to then encourage old (or retired from jobs) Brahmins etc. to take up these tasks. At that age perhaps their greed and ego would have all gone. They would have completed their material responsibilities, and may have become more religious themselves. Perhaps they may have the mind set to serve the lord and act as the facilitator.

chetak wrote:Better to put up a board with available services, rates and times so that all is above board.

:D. At least in Kerala we are just a step short of placing a board. The rates, perks etc. are now pretty much known to the end 'consumers'. Even deputy-priests (or the constabulary levels with a head priest in major poojas) get around Rs.700 to Rs.1000 per pooja. The seniors make much more. Plus many of these folks have also formed groups and start some other business activity (hotels for example), and farming etc. The priests themselves say that now people in general have money, and that would lead to tensions, and to cure that they would come to us :D. Why do you think even card-carrying commie "seculars" now discreetly going back to do the poojas? It is all money. Commie priests now know that true Shankara has more powers than Elamkulam Mana Shankara ;).

Not sure what part of my post suggested that pujaris are god sent individuals? As I said, what I stated was the ideal - what I would like to think the vedic times were. So yes, pujaris have become businessmen in their own way these days, so have astrologers, ayurvedic doctors and other vedic professions (all these jobs are supposed to provide a free service and accept what the recipients of these services give as a "reward"). But how many astrologers have you seen that provide free readings to benefit individuals? Hence your post is moot as it argues about something that I never brought up.

Absolutely. I don't blame priests themselves for what they have become. Ofcourse they need to earn enough to feed themselves and their families. It is just society that has depreciated - thats all that I was pointing out.

Please spare this dhaaga the discussion on Puja and Pujaris. Anyone born hindus and not deracinated would know that you need them right from birth till death and afterwards for performing rituals unless of course you know all of them . Pretty difficult I say . If India remains predominantly Hindu then they would not find themselves out of jobs. You need to be considerate as well to pay them decently afterall it is their work as well.

According to this article (or is it a farticle?) in the DDM, Modi comes across as much more enthusiastic about bilateral relations, while Putin comes across as lukewarm at best.

Of course this assumes that the quotes reproduced have not been selected to convey just that impression.

http://zeenews.india.com/news/nation/pm ... 47781.html

Key: Indian gush Russian meh
On the sidelines of the BRICS summit here, Modi conveyed his sincere appreciation and admiration for Putin’s decisive leadership in deepening and expanding the India-Russia special and privileged strategic partnership.

The Prime Minister further expressed deep appreciation for Russia’s friendship and unstinting bilateral and international support for India’s economic development and security since the early days of India’s independence.

Modi also reaffirmed that relations with Russia will continue to enjoy the priority that they always had in India’s foreign policy.


Modi, who had also met Putin in 2001 in Moscow, remarked, "Even a child in India, if asked to say who is India's best friend, will reply it is Russia because Russia has been with India in times of crisis."


The PM added that he looked forward to working with the Russian President to further deepen and broad-base the strategic partnership including in the areas of defence, nuclear energy, space, energy, trade and investment, people-to-people contacts and addressing regional and global challenges.

The two leaders looked forward to their Annual Summit in Delhi in December 2014 as an opportunity to outline a bold vision and roadmap for their relationship in the years ahead.

During his 40-minute meet, the Prime Minister invited President Vladimir Putin to visit Kudankulam atomic power project during his trip.

Putin responded saying "it is a good idea".


Putin congratulated Modi on his great victory in the recent elections.

The Prime Minister said there was a need to look at a liberal visa regime, especially students going for studies.

Putin also acknowledged that the case needed to be looked into, MEA spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said.

Modi fondly recalled his visit to Russia's Astrakan region in his early days as Chief Minister of Gujarat which has ties with that region. Talking about that visit, he said he felt as if he was in India.

Putin said Russia places its relations with India high enough in the strategic framework.

Nuclear power project has been a symbol of India-Russia relations.

Modi appreciated Putin's speech at the BRICS summit, saying it was clear on issues like reforms of the UN security council and international financial organisations.

After holding talks with Putin here, the PM left for Brasilia to participate in the sixth BRICS Summit with South American countries.

^Just some presstitute putting his/her spin on what was said and muddying the waters by reproducing it in his own words. There is no need to be swayed either way by what these presstitutes say. All that matters is what happens behind doors and frankly that is where all the important stuff will always remain.

It is about time we go by actions rather than just words.

BRICS: PM Modi turns in a star performance on global stage

Can't help myself from posting this article in full. Not even ABV could have done better.

His handshakes have been found to be firm, his outfits including an unusual scarf/ stole/ angavastram have been widely noticed and his idea of a BRICS university made it to the final Fortaleza Declaration, the historical document marking the setting up of the New Development Bank, the coinage itself borrowed incidentally from Modi's bank of ideas too.

PTI
The road to BRICS was a little rocky. There were a series of organisation and scheduling gaffes by the team of bureaucrats that now forms Team Modi, including a missed dinner date with German Chancellor Angela Merkel who was away in Brazil watching her national side lift the FIFAWorld Cup when Modi landed in Berlin for a previously publicised meeting. But once he arrived in Brazil, the new Indian Prime Minister clearly left a mark on the world stage with his distinct style and poise.

A report in The Indian Express notes how Modi has seized the opportunity offered by the BRICS summit to make his presence felt outside India.

Not only did the negotiations on the bank formation go as India wanted, including the decision to pick an Indian as its first president and equal shareholding for all the BRICS member nations, but Modi's body language left a lasting impact on negotiators from all the contingents.

"Sources said Modi’s body language was confident. “His handshakes are firm,” said a government official. After his bilateral meeting with Putin, which was immediately followed by the signing of the Fortaleza Declaration, a beaming Modi walked out of the convention centre, seeming satisfied at the outcome of the Summit," the report said.

It added that Modi also seems to have done his homework ahead of every major meeting. Not unlike his election campaign speeches -- when he would often speak in the local language and tweak his pitch to mirror local concerns -- Modi apparently floored his foreign counterparts with his carefully tailored comments at every bilateral meeting.

It was reported earlier that when he met Russian President Vladimir Putin for a hurriedly rescheduled 40-minute meeting on Tuesday -- after Monday's scheduled meeting was deferred -- Modi spoke about his visit to Astrakhan in Russia when he was Gujarat chief minister (Astrakhan and Ahmedabad are 'sister-cities' ).

The Indian Express reports that when he met Xi Jinping too, Modi had armed himself with information on the Chinese president's resume, and career trajectory before before he became China's leader. "Such preparation helps break the ice," an official was quoted as saying. Given that negotiations on the bank were delayed mainly by differences between India and China, an ice-breaker would have been critical during the bilateral meeting.

Modi also used the BRICS summit as an opportunity to raise one of India's biggest concerns on the world stage. Terrorism in any form, including in cyber-space, is against humanity, Modi said, calling for a "zero tolerance" attitude. He also won some brownie points for linking the new hyper-linked world order with the ancient Indian concept of Vasudaiva Kutumbakam.

Back home, the Vaidik-Hafiz Saeed meeting dominated the airwaves, possibly at the expense of some coverage of Modi's moment in the global spotlight. In the immediate aftermath of his election victory, Modi was compared to Thatcher and to Nixon, but when he actually was on the world stage the TV channels were busy elsewhere. In June, he had gone from pariah to fashion icon with his truncated tunic or the Modi kurta according to Time magazine, but his natty style statements at BRICS went mostly unreported.

Nevertheless, whether he got his due back home or not, Modi certainly had no cause to complain in Brazil whose president Dilma Rousseff received Modi with full military honours at the Brazilian presidential palace. She hosted the Indian prime minister for breakfast in Brasilia on on the sidelines of the BRICS summit. A reception with military honours is usually reserved for bilateral visits only, which this was not. PTI called it a "special gesture".

Modi in return praised the president for a well organised summit and then went on to recall that Gujarat, his home state, shared a close relationship with Brazil in terms of economic cooperation. Both leaders recalled the historical and cultural ties between the two countries, despite the distance, including the Gir cows that were brought to Brazil from India, the textiles and the fruits that came from India to Brazil since the 18th and 19th centuries.

When Modi returns tonight, he will have taken a giant step forward in honing his unique foreign policy style, the first inklings of which were revealed when he invited the SAARC leaders for his swearing-in on 26 May, itself an unprecedented step. It's clear that Modi wants to engage with the world aggressively on key global and economic issues. At the BRICS summit, he has proven himself as exactly the right man for that globally high-profile job.

Well Congress scored a goal with by pre-empting on this one.

BJP leaders should have known the facts before and should've effectively countered Congressis on day-1 itself, by exposing MSA/Khursed's role. If there's any heights of being apologist party, it's BJP.

I hope there are ways to correct such perceptions, as also rookie mistakes that a new government may make (ala Bangla visa issue). But considering that the government is serious on many issues, this should be an available option i.e. to correct rookie mistakes.

Even there is govt's fault here. Govt has complete authority to decide the transactions of house. May be inexperienced minister did not see the mischief of some cunning babu and have okayed it. Its a big lesson for BJP. Moreover, the attitude to VP, Ansari has not helped. The same Ansari did not object govt's scuttling of house during previous Lokpal debate, but he now refused to remove Palestine issue from agenda.
