“IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton”

“IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton” , says CBS ‘60 Minutes’.

CBS' highly-regarded ‘60 Minutes’, the most widely watched news programme in the US, told its audience of more than 10 Million viewers that “IIT may be the most important university you've never heard of."

"The United States imports oil from Saudi Arabia, cars from Japan, TVs from Korea and Whiskey from Scotland. So what do we import from India? We import people, really smart people," co-host Leslie Stahl began while introducing the segment on IIT.

“…the smartest, the most successful, most influential Indians who've migrated to the US seem to share a common credential: They are graduates of the IIT.”

“…in science and technology, IIT undergraduates leave their American counterparts in the dust.“

“Think about that for a minute: A kid from India using an Ivy League university as a safety school. That's how smart these guys are.”

There are “cases where students who couldn't get into computer science at IIT, they have gotten scholarships at MIT, at Princeton, at Caltech.”

Science of Yoga

“…The science of yoga was born in an age when mankind as a whole was more enlightened, and could easily grasp truths for which our most advanced thinkers are still grasping.”

The science of yoga meditation had been taught by the ancient, sages, gurus, yogis, through oral tradition for thousands of years, they were finally put to Sanskrit by Patanjali in 500 b.c.

“…It is because the groping for these truths has begun again that great yogis have reintroduced this ancient science to humanity at large.”

Pre-eminent among them, even today, are the sages of the Himalayas.

Today, the word yoga is much used and much misunderstood these days,

reduced from its knowledge on the control of the conscious to that of the control of the body.

Indians of note

Rabindranath Tagore,

Poet and writer of India’s national anthem and Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913,


"Oneness amongst men, the advancement of unity in diversity – this has been the core religion of India.“

Swami Vivekananda,


“I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance.

We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true.

I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth.

I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny.

I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation.

I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: ‘As the different streams having their sources in different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.’ ”

Sri Aurobindo,


“…Like the majority of educated Indians, I have passively accepted without examination, the conclusion of European scholarship.”

“…That we turn always the few distinct truths and the symbols or the particular discipline of a religion into a hard and fast dogmas, is a sign that as yet we are only infants in the spiritual knowledge and are yet far from the science of the Infinite.”

"...The mind is not the highest possible power of consciousness; for mind is not in possession of Truth, but only its ignorant seeker.”

Mahatma Gandhi


Gandhi was once asked what he thought about Western Civilization. His response was: "I think it would be a good idea.”

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.“

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

“The only devils in this world are those running around inside our own hearts, and that is where all our battles should be fought.”

“If all Christians acted like Christ, the whole world would be Christian.”

“Woman, I hold, is the personification of self-sacrifice, but unfortunately today she does not realize what tremendous advantage she has over man.”

“Indians, will stagger humanity without shedding a drop of blood.”

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”

Guru Tegh Bahadur


The Kashmiri Brahmins, who were being persecuted by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, seeked the council of Guru Tegh Bahadur. The 9th guru of the Sikhs upon hearing of the Brahmins predicament, responded:

“Unless a holy man lays down his head for the sake of the poor Brahmins, there is no hope for their escape from imperial tyranny.”, his young son reminded him “Revered father, who would be better equipped for this than yourself?”

During Guru Tegh Bahadur’s subsequent imprisonment by Aurangzeb, he spoke out:

“Hinduism may not be my faith, …but I would fight for the right of all Hindus to live with honour and practice their faith according to their own rites…. “

“All men are created by God and therefore must be free to worship in any manner they like. I neither convert others by force, nor submit to force, to change my faith.”

The enraged Aurangzeb, upon realising Guru Tegh Bahadur would not convert to Islam, ordered his public beheading by the sword.

His body was left in the dust as no one dared to pick up the body for fear of the emperors reprisal.

Sir C.V. Raman, (1888 – 1970)

1930 - Nobel Laureate in Physics for work on scattering of light and Raman effect.

Sir Jagdish Chandra Bose, (1858 – 1937)

Satyendranath Bose, (1894-1974)

Indian Physicist, who solved one of the mysteries of quantum mechanics, showing that in the quantum world some particles are indistinguishable. His collaborations with Albert Einstein led to a new branch on statistical mechanics know commonly known as the “Einstein-Bose” statistics.

Srinivasa Ramanujam,(1887 – 1920):

Great Indian Mathematician, whose interest from academics at Trinity, College, Cambridge, led him to collaborate there and postulate and prove well over 3,542 theorems.

Amartya Sen, (b-1933):

Har Gobind Khorana, (b-1922 ):

1968 - Nobel Laureate in Medicine for work on interpretation of the genetic code . Currently residing as professor at MIT.

Civilized Past


India never invaded any country in her last 10,000 years of history.

It is the only society in the world which has never known slavery.

India was the richest country on Earth until the time of the British in the early 17th Century

Robert Clive’s personal wealth amassed from the blunder of Bengal during 1750’s was estimated at around £401,102

It has been estimated that the total amount of treasure that the British looted from India had already reached £1,000,000,000 (£1Billion) by 1901.

Taking into consideration interest rates and inflation this would be worth close to $1,000,000,000,000 ($1Trillion) in real-terms today.

J. Robert Oppenheimer,

American nuclear physicist


"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One. . . . Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.“

Oppenheimer "the father of the atomic bomb" quoting from the Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita upon witnessing the mushroom cloud resulting from the detonation of the world’s first atomic bomb in New Mexico, U.S.A., on July 16, 1945.

“Access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries. “

Victor Cousin,

French Philosopher


"When we read the poetical and philosophical monuments of the East –

above all, those of India,

which are beginning to spread in Europe –

we discover there many a truth,

and truths so profound,

and which make such a contrast with the meanness of the results at which European genius has sometimes stopped,

that we are constrained to bend the knee before the philosophy of the East,

and to see in this cradle of the human race the native land of the highest philosophy.“

Hu Shih,

former Ambassador of China to USA


"India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.”

Dr. Arnold Joseph Toynbee,

British Historian


"It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending,

if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race.

At this supremely dangerous moment in human history,

the only way of salvation for mankind

is the Indian way."

Albert Einstein

(1879 -1955):

“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”

"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.“

Will Durant,

American historian,


"India was the motherland of our race,

and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages;

she was the mother of our philosophy;

mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics;

mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy.

Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all".

“Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoilation,

India will teach us

the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind,

the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul,

the calm of the understanding spirit,

and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things.”

Sir William Jones,



“…The Sanskrit language is of wonderful structure, more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin and more exquisitely refined than either.

“... a stronger affinity than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without first believing them to have sprung from some common source... ”

Ralph Waldo Emerson,



"I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.“

“The Indian teaching, through its clouds of legends, has yet a simple and grand religion, like a queenly countenance seen through a rich veil.

It teaches to speak truth, love others, and to dispose trifles.

The East is grand - and makes Europe appear the land of trifles. ...all is soul and the soul is Vishnu ...cheerful and noble is the genius of this cosmogony”

“When India was explored, and the wonderful riches

of Indian theological literature found, that

dispelled once and for all,

the dream about Christianity being the sole revelation.

- Nature makes a Brahmin of me presently.”

Arthur Schopenhauer,

German Philosopher


"In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. It has been the solace of my life – it will be the solace of my death."

“It is the most rewarding and the most elevating book which can be possible in the world. “

“I believe that the influence of the Sanskrit literature will penetrate not less deeply than did the revival of Greek literature in the fifteenth century.”

Henry David Thoreau,

American Philosopher


“…In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmological philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gita in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial."

“…Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of the sectarianism.

It is of ages, climes, and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. When I am at it, I feel that I am under the spangled heavens of a summer night.“

Mark Twain,

American Author


“This is India!

The land of dreams and romance,

of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty,

of splendor and rags,

of palaces and hovels,

of famine and pestilence,

of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps,

of tigers and elephants,

the cobra and the jungle,

the country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues,

of a thousand religions and two million gods,

cradle of the human race,

birthplace of human speech,

mother of history,

grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition,

whose yesterdays bear date with the mouldering antiquities of the rest of the nations

– the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien persons,

for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor,

bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see,

and having seen once, by even a glimpse,

would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined.

Even now, after a lapse of a year, the delirium of those days in Bombay has not left me and I hope it never will.”

Ken Wilber

American Philosopher and Author


“Larry [Warchowski] is just about as philosophically /spiritually well read as anyone you're likely to find, and The Matrix films are a stunning tribute to that fact.

Larry said that when he found Ken's work, "It was like Schopenhauer discovering the Upanishads."

Professor Max Muller,


"India, what can it teach us?,

"If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow, in some parts a very paradise on earth,

I should point to India.

If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most developed some of it choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life and has found solutions of some of them which will deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant,

I should point to India.

And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in Europe, who have been nurtured most exclusively on the thoughts of the Greeks and Romans and of the Semitic race and the Jewish may draw that corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more comprehensive, more universal, in fact a more truly human life, again,

I should point to India".

The Encyclopaedia Britannica says:

"Man must have an original cradle land whence the peopling of

the earth was brought about by migration.

As to man’s cradle land, there have been many theories but the

weight of evidence is in favour of Indo-Malaysia.”

"If there is a country on earth which can justly claim the honour of having been the cradle of the Human race or at least the scene of primitive civilization, the successive developments of which carried into all parts of the ancient world and even beyond, the blessings of knowledge which is the second life of man, that country is assuredly India.“

George Harrison,


(1943 - 2001):

"For every human there is a quest to find the answer to why I am here, who am I, where did I come from, where am I going. For me that became the most important thing in my life. Everything else is secondary."

"Here everybody is vibrating on a material level, which is nowhere. Over there [India], they have this great feeling of something else that's just spiritual going on. “

Lin Yutang,

Chinese writer,


“India was China’s teacher in religion and imaginative literature,

and world’s teacher in Trigonometry, quadratic equations, grammar, phonetics, Arabian Nights, animal fables, chess as well as in philosophy, and she inspired Boccasccio, Goethe, Schopenhauer and Emerson."


Author and Philosopher,


"It does not behove us, who were only savages and barbarians when these Indian and Chinese peoples were civilized and learned, to dispute their antiquity."

Aldous Huxley,

English novelist


“The (Bhagavad) Gita is one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the perennial philosophy ever to have been done. Hence its enduring value, not only for the Indians, but also for all mankind. It is perhaps the most systematic spiritual statement of the perennial philosophy. “

Dalai Lama,


“Hindus and Buddhists, we are two sons of the same mother."

Rudyard Kipling


“Now it is not good for the Christian's health to hustle the Hindu brown. For the Christian riles and the Hindu smiles and weareth the Christian down ;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone while with the name of the late deceased and the epitaph drear ,
‘A fool lies here who tried to hustle the east’ ".

Apollonius Tyaneus

Greek Thinker and Traveller,

1st Century AD

"In India

I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it.

Inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them,

possessing everything but possessed by nothing."

John Archibald Wheeler

Theoretical Physicist, who coined “Black Hole”


“I like to think that someone will trace how the deepest thinking of India made its way to Greece and from there to the philosophy of our times.”

Guy Sorman,

author of “Genius of India”:

“Temporal notions in Europe were overturned by an India rooted in eternity.

The Bible had been the yardstick for measuring time,

but the infinitely vast time cycles of India

suggested that the world was much older than anything the Bible spoke of.

It seem as if the Indian mind was better prepared for the

chronological mutations of

Darwinian evolution and astrophysics.”

Adam Smith,

Father of economics, and author of “Wealth of Nations”:


"The difference between the genius of the British constitution which protects and governs North America, and that of the mercantile company [British East India Company] which oppresses and domineers in the East Indies[India], cannot perhaps be better illustrated than by the different state of those countries."

H.G. Wells,

Sociologist, and Historian and Author of “Time Machine” and “War of the Worlds”


"The history of India for many centuries had been happier, less fierce, and more dreamlike than any other history. In these favourable conditions, they built a character - meditative and peaceful and a nation of philosophers such as could nowhere have existed except in India."

Friedrich Mejer:

“It will no longer remain to be doubted that

the priests of Egypt and the sages of Greece

have drawn directly from the original well of India,

that it is to the banks of the Ganges and the Indus

that our hearts feel drawn

as [if] by some hidden urge.”

Jean-Sylvain Bailly,

French Astronomer,


“The motion of the stars calculated by the Hindus before some 4500 years vary not even a single minute from the tables of Cassine and Meyer (used in the 19-th century).

…The Hindu systems of astronomy are by far the oldest and that from which the Egyptians, Greek, Romans and - even the Jews derived from the Hindus their knowledge.”

George Bernard Shaw,

Irish dramatist, literary critic, socialist spokesman


“The Indian way of life provides the vision of the natural, real way of life. We veil ourselves with unnatural masks.

On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry the mark of the Creator's hand.”

Dr David Frawley,

American Teacher, Doctor, Author, Speaker, Historian

“India possesses a great indigenous civilization dating back to 7000 BC, such as recent archaeological discoveries at Mehrgarh clearly reveal. It had the most extensive urban culture in the world in the third millennium BCE with the many cities of the Indus and Sarasvati rivers.

When the Sarasvati river of Vedic fame dried up in the second millennium BCE, the culture shifted east to the more certain rivers of the Gangetic plain, which became the dominant region of the subcontinent.

Gone is the old idea of the Aryan invasion and an outside basis for Indian culture. In its place is the continuity of a civilization and its literature going back to the earliest period of history.

Unfortunately, over the first fifty years since Independence, India has not discovered its real roots. Its intellectuals have mimicked Western trends in thought. They have forgotten their own profound modern sages like Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo who projected modern and futuristic views of the Indian tradition.

While Westerners come to India seeking spiritual knowledge, Indian intellectuals look to the West with an adulation that is often blind, if not obsequious.”

The BJP government has fallen. Your are rejoicing, O members of the Indian intelligentsia! You think that reading the latest New York Times bestseller, speaking polished English, and putting down your own countrymen, specially anybody who has a Hindu connection, makes you an intellectual.

The Ancient Indian Epics



Longest Epic in world literature with 100,000 two-line stanzas, first composed about 5000 years ago.

The first Indian epic consisting of 24,000 verses divided into 7 books, composed about 6500 years ago.

“After many births the wise seek refuge in me, seeing me everywhere and in everything. Such great souls are very rare.”

"Your very nature will drive you to fight, the only choice is what to fight against.”

“On action alone be your interest, Never on its fruits.
Let not the fruits of action be your motive,
Nor be thy attachment to inaction. “

“This is how actions were done by the ancient seekers of freedom; follow their example: act, surrendering the fruits of action.”

“For certain is death for the born,

and certain is birth for the dead;
Therefore over the inevitable you should not grieve. “

“For the uncontrolled there is no wisdom. For the uncontrolled there is no concentration, and for him without concentration, there is no peace. And for the unpeaceful how can there ever be happiness? “

“When a man dwells on the objects of sense, he creates an attraction for them; attraction develops into desire, and desire breeds anger.“

Ex-Prime Minister,

Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee

A treaty was signed on 6 January, 2004, establishing a South Asian Free Trade Area among the seven SAARC countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Maldives) in the region.

India committed to a South Asian Union as the ultimate objective, with mutual security cooperation, open borders and a single currency in Southern Asia in the long run.

"The bonds of ethnicity and culture which hold together the peoples of this region are more enduring than the barriers of political prejudice that have been erected quite recently.“

”….Friends, India is ready to do everything that is necessary, to walk as many extra miles as may be required, to make this vision a reality.”

Dr Abdul Kalam, President of India,

father of India’s space, missile and satellite programme and author of “India 2020 Vision”.

“I have three visions for India.”


“ In 3000 years of our history people from all over the world have come and invaded us, captured our lands, conquered our minds. From Alexander onwards. The Greeks, the Turks, the Moguls, the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Dutch, all of them came and looted us, took over what was ours.

Yet we have not done this to any other nation. We have not conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, their history and tried to enforce our way of life on them.


Because we respect the freedom of others. That is why my first vision is that of FREEDOM.

I believe that India got its first vision of this in 1857, when we started the war of independence. It is this freedom that we must protect and nurture and build on. If we are not free, no one will respect us. “


My second vision for India is DEVELOPMENT. For fifty years we have been a developing nation. It is time we see ourselves as a developed nation. We are among top 5 nations of the world in terms of GDP. We have 10% growth rate in most areas. Our poverty levels are falling. Our achievements are being globally recognized today. Yet we lack the self-confidence to see ourselves as

a developed nation, self-reliant and self-assured.


I have a THIRD vision. India must stand up to the world. Because I believe that unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. Only strength respects strength. We must be strong not only as a military power but also as an economic power. Both must go hand-in-hand.”

India’s population to be the largest in the world

India is set to overtake China as the world's most populous nation by 2050.

India’s population is expected to grow from 1.08bn to 1.63bn people, overtaking China, which is forecast to reach 1.44bn from 1.3bn currently.

India, will also have the highest working population in the World — 700 million people out of 1.1 billion people are young; the young population will continue till 2050.

Annie Wood Besant,

British Theosophical Society,


“After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world,

I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophical and none so spiritual than the great religion known by the name of Hinduism.

Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future.

Hinduism is the soil in to which India's roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place.

And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism

- who shall save it?

If India's own children do not cling to her faith

* who shall guard it?
* India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one.”



Dr. Babu Suseelan

Hinduism is the central part of India civilization. Yet, since independence, Hindu culture, values, and spiritual practices had been ignored, neglected, or disparaged by the ruling Congress Party. It seems that that few Congress Party politicians understand the importance of Hindu culture, its eclectic philosophy and all inclusive nature. Without Hinduism there can be no freedom, pluralism, secularism, harmony and coexistence.

How could the Congress Party has been successful in deceiving the general public for long with its bogus secularism, Islamic appeasement and corruption? The Congress Party has failed miserably to defending our borders, Hindus, Hindu culture, or to do anything more than protecting their own narrow political interests. As a party, the Congress has reduced its mind and heart to the level of intellectual and moral bankruptcy, outright dishonesty, corruption, ineptitude, nepotism, and inefficiency. These immoral practices have become the fallback mode of the Congress leaders. In the name of pseudo secularism, Congress moral relativists, atheists, and agnostics want to appease Muslims and want to overturn traditional Hindu culture and moral values.

Now the Congress Party headed by the Italian Catholic Sonia is devising new cunning schemes to restrict our liberties. For several years, Hindu organizations around the world had exposed Congress leaders despicable behavior and corrupt practices.

For the last few years, Indian American Intellectual Forum in New York is in forefront in exposing corrupt and immoral practices of the Congress Party and its Italian catholic leader Sonia. Narain Ktaria, Arish Sahani and Indian American Intellectual Forum members have expressed concerns about Jihadi terrorism, Sonia's deceptive statements about her background including her education and corrupt practices of the Congress Party. Indian American Intellectual Forum and its leaders have been trying to inform Hindus on the corrosive, violent, and immoral effect of the Congress Party. The public is aware Indian American Intellectual Forum is one of the most important organizations devoted solely to finding and amplifying sane and progressive voices. The Congress Party leaders are offended by Indian American Intellectual Forum and its leader's claim to the moral high ground.

Now Sonia and her ilk have filed a law suit against Narain Kataria and Arish Sahani, leaders of Indian American Intellectual Forum. It is an act of cold blooded strategy to silence Hindus. It is directed not merely against Indian American Intellectual Form, Narain Kataria, and Arish Sahani but it is directed against all Hindus. It is a sinister strategy to silence, intimidate, threaten and coerce all Hindus around the world.

What is the lawsuit really about? It seems is intimidation--intimidation of anyone inclined to raise questions or express concerns about the Italian Catholic Sonia who head the Congress Party. It is meant to silence her critics. Faced with the cost and time of defending themselves, plus the emotional drain the threat of lawsuit poses, the intent is to make the defendant give up, shut up and go away.

With this lawsuit, Congress bullies actually think they can fool, frighten and intimidate Hindus around the world. What is more. This legal intimidation has galvanized Hindus around the world and they have determined with all its strength to stop Sonia's plan to export the Congress culture sewage to the rest of the world. The lawsuit also exposes the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the Congress Party headed by the Italian Catholic Sonia.

How to Have a Perfect Pastor

A recent survey has compiled all the qualities that people expect from the perfect pastor:

Results of a computerized survey indicated that the perfect pastor preaches exactly 12 minutes.

He frequently condemns sin but never upsets anyone.

He works from 8 a.m. until midnight and is also a janitor.

He makes $60 a week, wears good clothes, buys good books, drives a good car, and gives about $80 a week to the poor.

He is 28 years of age, but he's been preaching for 30 years.He is wonderfully gentle and handsome.

He gives himself completely but never gets too close to anyone to avoid criticism.

He speaks boldly on social issues, but must never become politically involved.

He has a burning desire to work with teenagers, but he spends all his time with senior citizens.

He makes 15 daily calls to parish families, visits shut-ins and the hospitalized, spends all his time evangelizing the unchurched, and is always in his office when needed.



Harbhajan Singh needs to be given strict-most punishment for slapping and publicly humiliating young S Sree Santh making him cry in open public even though both of them might have compromised. Whole episode should be taken as a national shame because Australian media will have an opportunity to recall earlier confrontation of Harbhajan with Symonds in Sydney test in context of present slapping by Harbhajan to his Indian team-mate. In fact, Harbhajan did use objectionable words to Symonds which were wrongly understood to be ‘Monkey’ by Australians even though the matter was ultimately resolved in favour of India because of dominating monetary Indian role in International Cricket League.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats,
and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied,"The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made
me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

Husband and wife were in the midst of a violent quarrel, and hubby was losing his temper. "Be careful," he said to his wife. "You will bring out the animal in me."... "So what?" his wife shot back. "Who is afraid of a mouse?"


Human line 'nearly split in two'
By Paul Rincon
Science reporter, BBC News

Ancient humans started down the path of evolving into two separate species before merging back into a single population, a genetic study suggests.

The genetic split in Africa resulted in distinct populations that lived in isolation for as much as 100,000 years, the scientists say.

This could have been caused by arid conditions driving a wedge between humans in eastern and southern Africa.

Details have been published in the American Journal of Human Genetics.

It would be the longest period for which modern human populations have been isolated from one another.

But other scientists said it was still too early to reconstruct a meaningful picture of humankind's early history in Africa. They argue that other scenarios could also account for the data.

At the time of the split - some 150,000 years ago - our species, Homo sapiens , was still confined to the African continent.

We don't know how long it takes for hominids to fission off into separate species, but clearly they were separated for a very long time
Dr Spencer Wells, Genographic Project

The results have come from the Genographic Project, a major effort to track human migrations through DNA.

The latest conclusions are based on analysis of mitochondrial DNA in present-day African populations. This type of DNA is the genetic material stored in mitochondria - the "powerhouses" of cells.

It is passed down from a mother to her offspring, providing a unique record of maternal inheritance.

"We don't know how long it takes for hominids to fission off into separate species, but clearly they were separated for a very long time," said Dr Spencer Wells, director of the Genographic Project.

"They came back together again during the Late Stone Age - driven by population expansion."

Although present-day people carry a signature of the ancient split in their DNA, today's Africans are part of a single population.

The researchers compiled a "family tree" of different mitochondrial DNA groupings found in Africa.

A major split occurred near the root of the tree as early as 150,000 years ago.

On one side of this divide are the mitochondrial lineages now found predominantly in East and West Africa, and all maternal lineages found outside Africa.

On the other side of the divide are lineages predominantly found in the Khoi and San (Khoisan) hunter-gatherer people of southern Africa.

Many African populations today harbour a mixture of both.

Although there is very deep divergence in the mitochondrial lineages, that can be different from inferring when the populations diverged from one another

The scientists say the most likely scenario is that two populations went their separate ways early in our evolutionary history.

This gave rise to separate human communities localised to eastern and southern Africa that evolved in isolation for between 50,000 and 100,000 years.

This divergence could have been related to climate change: recent studies of ancient climate data suggest that eastern Africa went through a series of massive droughts between 135,000-90,000 years ago.

Lead author Doron Behar, from the Rambam Medical Center in Israel commented: "It is possible the harsh environment and changing climate made populations migrate to other places in order to have a better chance of survival.

"Some of them found places where they could and - perhaps - some didn't. More than that we cannot say."

Back together

Dr Wells told BBC News: "Once this population reached southern Africa, it was cut off from the eastern African population by these drought events which were on the route between them."

Modern humans are often presumed to have originated in East Africa and then spread out to populate other areas. But the data could equally support an origin in southern Africa followed by a migration to East and West Africa.

The genetic data show that populations came back together as a single, pan-African population about 40,000 years ago.

This renewed contact appears to coincide with the development of more advanced stone tool technology and may have been helped by more favourable environmental conditions.

"[The mixing] was two-way to a certain extent, but the majority of mitochondrial lineages seem to have come from north-eastern Africa down to the south," said Spencer Wells.

But other scientists said different scenarios could explain the data.

Dr Sarah Tishkoff, an expert on African population genetics from the University of Pennsylvania, said the Khoisan might once have carried many more of the presumed "East African" lineages but that these could have been lost over time.

"Although there is very deep divergence in the mitochondrial lineages, that can be different from inferring when the populations diverged from one another and there can be many demographic scenarios to account for it," she told BBC News.

She added: "As a general rule of thumb, when mitochondrial genetic lineages split, it will usually precede the population split. It can often be difficult to infer from one to the other."

The University of Pennsylvania researcher stressed it was not possible to pinpoint where in Africa the populations had once lived - complicating the process of reconstructing scenarios from genetic data.

The Genographic Project's findings are also consistent with the idea - held for some years now - that modern humans had a close brush with extinction in the evolutionary past.

The number of early humans may have shrunk as low as 2,000 before numbers began to expand again in the Late Stone Age.

Question: Then how do You bring forth the creation ?
Answer: In reality, with Me as the supervisor, it is Prakriti (Nature) itself, with Me as the supervisor, that brings forth the whole creation, both animate and inanimate. O Arjuna, under My supervision the world in undergoing various changes. (Gita 9:10)

Question: When everything in the region of Prakriti (Nature) is going on by your power, why do people not have faith in You ?

The deluded ones, not knowing My Supreme nature as the great Lord of creation, take Me to be an ordinary mortal and so disregard Me. (Gita 9:11)

Question: What type of people are those deluded ones, O Lord?
Those deluded ones embrace a nature which is fiendish, demoniacal and delusive and they have vain hopes, engage in futile actions and have fruitless knowledge i.e they don't bear real fruit. (Gita 9:12)

Then who has faith and devotion in You, O Lord ?
O Arjuna, those great soul, embracing and depending on My divinity, knowing Me as the prime cause of creation and as imperishable, worship Me with undivided mind. (Gita 9:13)

Question: What is the mark of those great souls who worship You with undivided mind ?
They constantly chant My name and glories and strive to attain Me, they prostrate before Me, worship Me with devotion. (Gita 9:14)

Question: Is there also any other way to worship You, O Lord ?
Yes, there is. Some strivers worship Me through their offering of knowledge in My Absolute aspect as their own self, while other strivers worship Me in My Universal form in many ways, thinking Me (Lord) different from them (devotees). (Gita 9:16)

wheel of being

On this ever-revolving wheel of being
The individual self goes round and round
Through life after life, believing itself
To be a separate creature, until
It sees its identity with the Lord of Love
And attains immortality in the indivisible whole.

Chief Minister of Delhi should be held responsible for total failure of dream-plan of Bus-Rapid-Transit (BRT) system in Delhi which has caused massive jams, fatalities and drainage of hard-earned money of tax-payers. Project was kept invested despite a vigilant media and public kept raising doubts over its successful implementation throughout its construction-period. Any claim about ‘improvement’ is false because most people have now taken infamous BRT-route as ‘unusable road’! It is quite usual that such imaginative projects are made just to benefit private individuals and bribing contractors, who are doubly benefited by being awarded contracts for dismantling after failure of such projects, like happened several times in Chandni Chowk where pillars were first erected to divert slow and fast moving traffic without caring for in-between obstructions like BSES sub-stations, and then uprooting these pillars because of practical difficulties not taken care of at time of installing costly pillars. A CBI enquiry is a must for implementation of a failed BRT system to expose corruption. Such wastage of public-funds by decision-takers on failed projects should be taken as criminal offence especially when eye-brows were being raised throughout its construction-period.

Subject: Fwd: Press Release: Demonstration at UN during POPE visit


Peaceful Demonstration against religious exclusivism at UN during Pope address to UN on April 18, 2008

New York: The Forum for the Protection of Religious Pluralism held a peaceful demonstration outside the United Nations headquarters during Pope address to United Nations on April 18, 2008.

A small group of people from around the US joined the demonstration to bring public awareness of religions that have been victimized by aggressive proselytization campaigns that are grounded in religious exclusivism, which is there is only one way to God and all other ways are wrong and even evil that needs to be destroyed.

The demonstration sought to highlight how the Catholic, Evangelical and Pentecostal Christian missionaries looking to increase their numbers at any cost are having tremendous success in recruiting new converts by closely linking social services with deceptive and exploitative proselytizing.

The demonstrators carried placards with messages of how deceptive proselytizations destroys cultures, create hatred among families, communities and the country. The messages brought attention to sayings by Mahatma Gandhi calling the religious conversions conducted by missionaries as the deadliest poison that lethally destroys cultures of the world. It also highlighted deceptive practices used by missionaries today, Goa Inquisition in the past as well as the Canadian holocaust where thousands of native children were separated from parents and murdered in catholic and other residential schools during last 100 years to grab their land.

The forum website has wealth of information from leading figures in the world highlighting the activities of missionaries and the atrocities committed across the world in the name of religion rooted in exclusiveness. It also contains a passionate appeal to all Americans how their donations are being used to coerce conversions during times of natural calamities, how children in schools (build with their donations) are told their parent's religion is wrong and how systematically the structure of the establishments in each country is bought to coerce the rest of the population to convert. The videos on the website include 'Bad Manna' that showed how the new converts in Gujarat, India are asked to prove their conversion to new religion by stepping on the Gods from the religion they converted from (Hinduism).
