  1. You people are stuck in past accolades.
  2. Friend on SM told me how he recently met a senior member of delhi sikh gurdwara committee and enquire steps taken by them to handle missionaries. He bluntly told him, "they have chosen their new religion, there is nothing we can do".
  3. Low fertility rate is a problem. Sikhs are actually well below (1.8) replacement level of 2.1.
  4. Japan and other parts of east asia also Hindu devtas/devis are worshiped . They have been incorporated into Shintoism and Taoism. There are temples dedicated to Indra, Brahma, Saraswati, Shiva, Ganesha, Shiva, Vishnu etc in Buddhist countries of East Asia :- http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/before-buddhism-hindu.html http://videshisutra.com/2013/02/01/hindu-devas-take-a-silk-road-trip-to-japan/ Some good books on this :- books.google.ca/books?id=2et6AgAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=upendra+india+japan&hl=en&sa=X&ei=fXRWVMegI4mVyQTqt4KACg&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=

  6. Thus have I heard: On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Savatthi at Jetavana at Anathapindika's monastery. Then in the forenoon the Blessed One having dressed himself, took bowl and (double) robe, and entered the city of Savatthi for alms. Now at that time a fire was burning, and an offering was being prepared in the house of the brahman Aggikabharadvaja. Then the Blessed One, while on his alms round, came to the brahman's residence. The brahman seeing the Blessed One some way off, said this: "Stay there, you shaveling, stay there you wretched monk, stay there you outcast." When he
  7. This story occurs in Vana Parva section of Mahabharat and is recited to Pandava Prince Yudhishthira by an enlightened sage Markandeya. In this story, an arrogant Brahmin is completely humbled by Dharma Vyadha (righteous butcher), and learns about all the secrets of spirituality & dharma from the menial butcher. The Vyadha teaches the elitist Brahmin that "no duty is ever ugly, no duty is ever impure" and it is only the way & the spirit in which the work is done, determines its worth. Doing your profession or social role perfectly leads to enlightenment. One may need not quit your job o
  8. Afghanistan has been conquered several times, it was only during mughal times that these Pathans started to rebel against Mughals and then later during Abdali they asserted themselves as a separate nation. Before that, Abdali was serving under Nadir Shah, an Iranian. Afghanistan had no identity, it was piece of land that was wrestled over between various Indian and Iranian empires, until Jahangir lost it to Safavid Iranians for good. lol Indians buy into the Islamist propaganda of Afghans being undefeated without doing any research. All of those marauders like Ghaznavi and Ghori were not Patha
  9. How many of you are aware of the kind of intellectual subversion that is going on in western academic circles ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabir#Criticism That Wendy Doniger lady is calling Kabir Das ji a misogynist, she is a well know western indologist who has been working overtime to undermine other indic traditions as well. And amidst other things, she and cohorts are working to whitewash muslim imperialism in india. http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/interview/scholar-audrey-truschke-aurangzeb-is-a-severely-misunderstood-figure/article7648723.ece Shouldn't we put more effort into refutin
  10. Ibn Khaldun, a great thinker of Islam, on cultural imperialism :- “The vanquished always seek to imitate the victors in their dress, insignia, beliefs and other customs and usages. This is because men are always inclined to attribute perfection to those who have defeated and subjugated them. Men do this either because the reverence they feel for their conquerors makes them see perfection in them or because they refuse to admit that their defeat could have been brought about by ordinary causes and hence suppose it is due to the perfection of their conquerors. Should this belief persist for long
  11. Where ? Please point out. I don't deny that I'm not completely free from such influences or taking any moral high ground. Just sharing info with people that might be useful :)
  12. Good ideas from anywhere are welcome. But must be tailored to local circumstances and applied. Lifting entire meme complexes from elsewhere and forcing it with scant regard to Indian traditions, history & complexity will only result in disaster. In this regard, even the "right thinking" Hindus & Sikhs, like the ones in UK who support EDL for e.g., share an innate inferiority complex stemming from their lack of knowledge & deep understanding of how the world works, let alone know nuances of Indic traditions/history.
  13. Evangelizing conquest method historically practiced by goras has given way to more crafty scheme of promoting liberalism, dumbocracy and other isms for export. Notice how many Desis fall for feminism, liberalism, capitalism, libertarianism, socialism etc...it represents a new chapter in our intellectual slavery to the West. I go on social media and these kids in India identifying themselves by these isms, left wing, right wing, all sorts of imported dialectic. I even see our people trying to prove how Indic faiths promote XYZ westernism just so that they can get a pat on the back from saheb. M
