Wanna keep updated about the happenings in the abode of “Mount Road Maha Vishnu”?

And it is really heartening to have a glimpse of Mr. N.Murali, President of the very Mecca of Carnatic Music, The Music Academy and (Sr.) managing Director of The Hindu (actually, rabidly anti-Hindu!)
It is very much ironical that he is being blacked out in the very newspaper which he heads!
Yes. It is adieus to The (non)Hindu!
The time has come to part with an association which had assumed a second nature for me. The typical morning routine of a steaming cup of “ticoction” coffee in one hand and the The Hindu on the other. But it is all history.
There was a time The Hindu represented everything that was representative of educated middle class culture in Tamil Nadu. The completeness of the information, the classy and impeccable English (many of the past generation had averred that they got autodidacted with the English language solely by reading The Hindu), uniqueness of authentic reporting, earnestness of the delivery and clear identity with the south Indian culture and tradition. But all this is past glory.
The Hindu, especially after its take-over by the current management, has undergone a total shift from its traditions for which it has acquired a loyal clientèle built assiduously over a century plus. To be precise, it has let down the loyalists by converting the newspaper almost like an official mouthpiece of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), if the recent front-page coverage given to the party’s conference is any indication.
In addition to the major shift in allegiance from the centrism to partisan, the quality also had gone down considerably. Inaccurate reporting galore, prompting the paper to dedicate a big column for publishing corrections. The language too deteriorated considerably. There was nothing left except the name. And name, God, “Hindu” is a misnomer, with the reporting slant being consistently anti-hindu.
WEll, Times of India has launched its Chennai edition and has hit my doorway today. Let me see how it fares.
Charles Darwin averred, “False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science for they often endure long”.
This is true of history too, in which case they endure longer with the active patronage of rulers and various other kinds of powerful lobbies. This phenomenon is more pronounced in countries like India, where politics of twisting history (and just everything) to humour committed vote banks is a cottage industry!
A case in point is the canard that the famous Taj Mahal was a structure devoted to carnal love by the “Great” Moghul king Shah Jahan to his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Please keep in my mind that this is the same Shah Jahan who had a harem of 5,000 women and the same Shah Jahan who had a incestuous relationship with his daughter justifing it by saying, “a gardner has every right to taste the fruit he has planted”! Is such a person even capable of imagining such a wondrous structure as the Taj Mahal let alone be the architect of it?
The answer is an emphatic NO. It just cannot be. And there isn’t even an iota of proof for that “official version”. The Taj Mahal is as much a Islamic structure as is mathematics a Muslim discovery! The famous historian Shri P.N. Oak has proven that Taj Mahal is actually “Tejo Mahalaya”, a Shiva temple-palace. His work was published in 1965 in the book, “Taj Mahal – The True Story”. However, we have not heard much about it because it was banned by the powers that be who did not want to alienate their precious vote bank- the Muslims.

Here is a different point of view, far removed from what has been drummed into our ears over the whole generation!
- Jinna was earlier a proponent of Nationalism. He was a supporter of Lokamanya Tilak and even accepted Namdar Gokhale as his Guru.
- Jinna wanted to bring the muslims into the modern mainstream society minus their fundamentalist ideology. For the same he took the lead in Lucknow pact of 1916.
- In 1920 Jinna was the only Nationalist Muslim who opposed the Khilafat Movement
- Gandhi did not give the leadership of Muslim League to Jinna who was senior to even Gandhi himself; instead he made Mohammed Ali
- Jinna who was angered therefore demanded Pakistan in 1940.
I don’t know how much of it is true, but nevertheless it makes an interesting reading.
A detailed essay on this subject and on why Mohandas Gandhi was killed can be found here.
Read more on the real side of the much-adulated icon and a false hero of India in the web site of
Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
For some strange reason, the web site of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti has removed this web page on Nehru. It was a spicy page with lots of interesting (!) stories on Nehru, his doings and family genealogy!
Here is an excerpt from the archived page:
Indira Gandhi? No… ‘Maimuna Begum’!
Indira Gandhi’s real name was ‘Maimuna Begum’. She lived like a Muslim all her life. The Sultan of Saudi Arabia had invited her to Mecca. It is noteworthy that only Muslims are allowed to visit Mecca. She once told Shri. M.O. Mathai, the personal secretary of Nehru, her father, ‘I hate Hindus. I will never marry a Hindu.’ – (Ref.: swordoftruth.com)
Not ‘Indira Feroze Gandhi’, ‘Indira Feroze Khan’ !
Feroze Gandhi is considered a Parsi because his mother was a Parsi before her marriage to his Muslim father Nawab Khan; but since she converted to Islam before her marriage, their son Feroze Khan is a Muslim and not a Parsi by birth. This was the reason why Kamala Nehru opposed Indira’s marriage to him.
Despite a Muslim wedding (nikah) with Feroze in a London Masjid, a fake picture of their marriage in Vedic style was published to fool the Indians !
Is devil the sine qua non of God’s existence?
You can’t make a hero without a villain. It is the villain who makes a hero. There will be nothing called good if there is nothing bad. It is like saying if everyone is vaccinated, you don’t need one.
This kind of dichotomy is the fundamental cornerstone of the universe. There is no white if there is no black, no light if no darkness, no heaven if no hell, no virtue if no vice, no “punya” (= good deed – “Mitzvah”) without sin. So in effect, both are complementary to each other. Each depends on the other for its very existence, rather symbiotic. That is the reason why the evil is portrayed to be as powerful, if not more, as the God(s) in all mythologies and religions, ancient or new!
In Christianity, God and the Devil (aka Satan, aka Lucifer) are usually depicted to be perennially fighting to exercise control over the souls of humans, with the Devil seeking to lure people away from God and into Sheol. The Devil commands a force of lesser evil spirits, commonly known as demons.
In Islam the Devil is referred to as Iblis or “Shaitan”. According to the Qur’an, God (called “Allah” in Arabic) created the Satan out of “smokeless fire”, while He created man out of clay. The primary characteristic of the Devil, besides hubris, is that he has no power other than the power to cast evil suggestions into the heart of men and women. Fundamentally Islam holds its believers in a tight leash by constantly harping on the threat of Shaitan’s influence on their lives (as well as afterlife), if you do not conform strictly to the tenets. That way, and through other blandishments like 72 of the choicest and full-breasted virgins soaked in copious flow of wine in heaven, Islam turns even doctors of medicine into human bombs (“Fidayeen” terrorists), ready to sacrifice their precious lives to annihilate “kafirs” meaning non-Muslims!
Narendra Modi is the leader nonpareil of India, who is a growth-oriented, no-nonsense, down to earth realist and a true patriot. If only we have more of his genre!
- Expected toll revenue from the Sethusamudram project: Rs.87.42 crores per annum (2008)
- Haj subsidy: Rs. 180 crores (2006)
- Vidarbha farmer package: Rs 3,750 crore (PM Relief fund) + Rs 1,200 crore (State package)
Ah the unbounded joys of secularism and socialism.
- we are importing wheat in large quantities
- at a much higher price compared to domestic farmers
- massive loot going on within the PDS system
- fake currency has flooded the country
- industrial growth is slowing down
- no clear policy direction for growth in the face of rising rupee
- no significant progress in infrastructure projects
- our cities are bursting at the seams
- our children go hungry
- we have many intellectuals and rational people
As mentioned by me in an earlier posting, female feet and toes tickle many a male into ecstasy. There are many foot-fetishers, one of the famous one being the Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino. But fetish or no fetish, none can deny that there is enough beauty in a female foot as in any other curve of the fairer sex! The foot shown above bears ample testimony to this unassailable fact!

Please have a look at the way the “famous” painter M.F.Hussain has chosen to denigrate the Hindu Gods being worshiped by a vast majority if Indian population. And the double standards applied by him in fully clothing Mother Teresa and a Muslim king, but depicting only Hindu gods naked betrays his perverse approach, emboldened by the support given by pseudo-secularists of India.
Compare this to the furore created when a few cartoons showing Prophet Mohammed appeared in a Danish newspaper.
And to top it all, he is going to be awarded with Raja Ravi Varma Award by the Government of Kerala!
Yoohoo, self-respecting Hindus, please wake up from your Hypersomnia!
To know more about this sordid episode and to sign an on-line petition against this kind of derogatory depiction, please visit the Hindu Jajgriti Samiti Website. You can also view the divine paintings of Raja Ravi Varma, and the naked renderings of “superior art” by perverse Hussain juxtaposed for your perception!
“Love blossomed” between a “lonely” Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, and the last Viceroy of India Lord Mountbatten’s wife, Edwina, who had other “lovers” before, says her daughter.
Pamela Mountbatten, who fondly called Nehru “Mamu” (maternal uncle), has used diary entries and extracts from family albums as documentary evidence to write India Remembered: A Personal Account of the Mountbattens During the Transfer of Power.
In a section titled “A Special Relationship” Pamela writes: “My mother had already had lovers. My father was inured to it. It broke his heart the first time, but it was somehow different with Nehru. There existed a “happy three-some” based on firm understanding on all sides”
