1. Prologue

Sindh is one of the world’s most ancient civilized and organized countries.  As the nature of the such things, it has seen many a rise and fall.  The signs of its ancient glory are still to be found in the relics of Amri, Kot Diji and Moenjodaro.

For some of its history, Sindh has been ruled by natives, and for some of its history, it has seen hardship as a colony of aliens.  It has not yet…

Open letter to Mr. Rahul Gandhi -from a Dattatreya-koul

kashmir blogs-Truth about Kashmir-" kashmir blog""

Dear Rahul Gandhi Ji,
Greetings!
My name is Sandeep Koul and my Gotra is Dattatreya. It was heartening to see that you openly confessed your Gotra at Pushkar as Koul-Dattatreya .I saw the byte of the Priest on T.V, wherein he declared emphatically that you and your ancestors are ‘Kashmiri Brahmins’.

It is widely speculated or rather believed that you had to publically announce your caste and Gotra in order to look correct politically. However, your confession also portrays the polity of today’s India. Being just ‘secular’ is not enough today. Being Indian-without being framed as a Hindu or Muslim is just impossible today. And being Hindu, without divulging your caste is equally impossible.

Being a seasoned politician, I don’t need to tell you why?

B. T. W, Every time I fill a form, I am being asked my Religion as well as the caste.

Religion as well as caste…

Janamejaya, the supporter of the family of Pariksita, asked Vyasa’s pupil
Vaisampayana.

3. Janamejaya (said): “Kings of various countries – the great heroes – came to
the great Bharata war of my forefathers.

4-5. Say, why did not the king of Kasmira come there? Why was that king not
chosen by the sons of Pandu and Dhrtarastra? The region of Kasmira, of course,
occupies an important place in the world.

My letter to Prime Minister Modi

MARIA WIRTH

Dear respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji,

I am not an Indian citizen but Iove India and want her culture to flourish and spread because it is most beneficial for all humanity. Except in India, all ancient cultures have been wiped out by Christianity or Islam or in some cases by communism. India is the last ancient culture standing but heavily under attack by those three forces.

Please allow me to make a suggestion, since I know both Christianity and Hindu Dharma as an insider.

The terms ‘Heathen’, ‘Kaffir’ and ‘idol worshipper’ are highly derogative and insulting, yet freely used for Hindus and taught to Christian and Muslim children. This is dangerous, as it dehumanizes Hindus and is prone to lead to hate crimes and even genocide. An UN official said on Holocaust Day that the Holocaust of the Jews did not start with gas chambers but with hate speech…
