..courtesy my friend, Sanjay, in his own words:
“To those who believe that anything and everything published in the West is gospel and should, never ever be doubted or criticised, pls only read (a) below.
To those interested in another side of a story from a poor corrupt illiterate unsophisticated 3rd world point of view, pls also read (b)
And then only form an opinion.
I don’t think I need to add anything else.
Dear Friends, Namaskar…
I will be off blogging for a period of time…primarily due to some fairly intense professional commitments that require my entire attention and effort. While the blog is in ‘hiberation’, all comments have been disabled (you should still be able to read the earlier comments though)
If you want to be alerted to any new post(s) that I write without having to actually visit my blog everyday please subscribe to my feed of new entries by clicking here.
Alternatively, subscribe by Email if you prefer that.
In the meantime, you may occasionally find me on twitter!
Thank you for your encouragement, support and patience, as always. जय हिंद, जय भारत!
P.S. You may still find me occasionally on twitter..
Dear Friends, from early next week, I will be ‘downgrading’ my engagement with facebook…It has been five years since I started the ||Satyameva Jayate|| facebook page..During that time, what started as another channel for my blog posts and thoughts has gone from strength to strength, attracting several thousands of members…Sometime around last year though (2013), I began to notice early signs of something being wrong…Earlier this year, my fears were confirmed..
Today is the birth anniversary of “Bharathiyar” – Subramania Bharati.
Knowing the “history” that is taught in our schools, many of you may have never heard his name – or have only a faint recollection of him as “someone from south India”.
Bharathi was not only a freedom fighter and a social reformer far ahead of his times, he was also one of the greatest poets of his age..His poetry inspired the masses to fight against colonial rule.. Even more interestingly, he was probably one of the earliest leaders of the freedom struggle who had a clear view on enterprise, liberty and individual freedoms…
Courtesy, The three types of specialist, this excerpt from a passage of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Bluebeard” (emphasis added):
Slazinger claims to have learned from history that most people cannot open their minds to new ideas unless a mind-opening team with a peculiar membership goes to work on them. Otherwise, life will go on exactly as before, no matter how painful, unrealistic, unjust, ludicrous, or downright dumb that life may be.
