We will convert u, ask u to eat beef, remove bindi, throw away mangalsutra, ur "pagan" Gods, give u cheap dip in nearest tank& claim u r re-born to new religion. After we throw away ur gods & ur tradition, we repackage ur earlier culture, tradition, music, ragas and gve it to 🙏 Oh & then ur own secular bretheren who claim they r "spiritual but nt religious" , "all religions are equal" will start hashtag campaign #carnaticmusicbelongstoall
And if U, the "bully, militant, communal, bigoted" Hindu try to save Carnatic music frm digestion, u knw the drill!

Mahesh Raut was a classmate in our Community Org&Development Practice(CODP) specialisation &we did fieldwork in Bikaner. Mahesh hd multiple personalities; a friendly chap in classroom, a jhola and naarebaazi activist on the street and what I came to know later-a naxal sympathiser Mahesh had a politician's aura about him. He could just stand and deliver a speech anywhere. I thought he would become a yuva neta someday and uplift the naxal hit Gadchiroli district out of poverty and violence.

So you think only the so called religious minorities are against hindus? In the following tweets I give you some pointers that indicate that there is a well established covert cabal,a nexus if u will, that is actively seeking to undermine and subvert Hindu identity When I was in Tiss, during conferences Church authorities from jharkhand and other tribal regions were invited to chair panel discussions and present papers during seminars. Have seen many nuns pursuing social work masters and even mphil here.

1)A good friend, fellow dharmic hs shed some light on the sham that is @MurtyLibrary Murthy Classical library& how it's guilty of perpetuating distortions of Indian phil &culture, thus propagating the Pollockian and Wendy Doniger classical school of distortion &psychoanalysis 2) the book in question this time is "The life of Harishchandra" by Raghavanka translated by Vanamala Viswanatha.

This book is a translation work of a classical work by Raghavanka. Now,given the halo and brand name of THE Murthy Classical lib, any unsuspecting person will buy it

#PowerfulIndia : "The last village to be brought on the national power grid was Leisang village in the Senapati district of Manipur ". Sharing my experience of living fr a month in Senapati dist
Yr was 2007. I was selected for national internship with 22Assam Rifles , Manipur After a back-breaking train journey that started from Pune-Mumbai-Kolkata-Assam and the 4 hour bumpy ride on NH-2 Imphal- Dimapur highway , we finally reached the 22Assam Rifles HQ at Maram, Senapati district. At that time electricity was a luxury, hot water for bath using wood

Folks, I don’t have time to write an article, so here’s my two-cents on the upcoming #ModiXisummit (informal) in Wuhan. I’m seeing a lot of brouhaha being played by the Indian media, think-tankies regarding the “reset”, “thaw” in relations. 1)The meeting draws on the similar format of reset and informal meets organised by Xi for Obama in 2013 and the Mar-a-lago summit hosted for Xi by Trump last year. Both have failed to bring any kind of reset. Instead there is a trade war looming between China and USA now

1)I've said it a zillion times but saying this again;the social science education is rotten to the core; educated individuals with their hearts in the right place for India have abandoned the country and allowed mediocrity, hate and extreme left ideology to take deepest roots 2) This wholescale import of social science methodologies, terminologies from the west and force fitting them to the Indian scenario has robbed one of thinking like an Indian and evolving measures that suit the local conditions

Thread: My experience of reverse caste discrimination

I grew up in Pune without discriminating or being discriminated ag.Troubles started from day 1 at TISS where I went to pursue my Masters. It was the first time away from home, first time dealing with life independently .... Most part of my TISS journey went in depression so much so that after the first year, unable to deal with negativities, I pleaded with my mother to quit the program. I had joined social work because I loved volunteering for social causes and thought of making it my career.

Thread :
Had the opportunity to attend a seminar on "Challenges facing China's Belt and Road initiative" by Prof Linda Lim of University of Michigan's Business School. Went in thinking I'll be hearing paeans sung on how great the BRI initiative is and how to iron the difficulties Instead Prof Linda Lim's lecture came as a breathe of fresh air among all the "win-win" collaborations parroted usually as sign of either self-censorship/political correctness. Prof Lim drove home her points pretty clearly. Below I'm outlining some of them using her ppt slides

An open-air mandir;a short story of faith : Walking down the busy street, we stopped to offer namaskar to this mandir under a temp shed.A young woman walked past by carrying a small girl& young school going boy tugged along.The boy traced his steps back and did a quick namaskar 2) even though his namaskar was short and crisp,for that nanosecond it showed utmost devotion.He left tugging his mom's kurta with a smile on his face.
