Periods, parents and society.

Periods,  parents and society.
1] Balanced views come with experience, encounters and educated evaluation. So no wonder it is an article with very balanced views on very sensitive topic.
Here is the link to the article

2] Baseless and blinding beliefs, fettering faiths, tormenting traditions, rigid religious practices, mutilating mores, senseless social taboos, human reason confining cultural dictates etc must be weeded out for any sane human emancipation.

3] Dominating streams, institutions and individuals have always subdued other subjects, institutions and individuals to progress as effectively as they ought to have and curbed many great souls and their findings.
This has happened and continues to happen as an inevitable part or aspect of evolution.

4] But what is worse is uncritical love and unloving criticism leading more towards justification of either one of those stands rather than relevant reasoning that actually further  strengthens such predatory and predominating factors so much that even when they are fossilized return to haunt us. The frustration of all the stake holders the predators, prey manifest in extreme stands and vindications leading to venerating the venal and vilifying the values.

5] For example today in India the film world and media gets predominant and disproportionate importance. While many great scientists are working in silence and unrecognized the half baked news reporters and film stars who appear in a single film get prominence and majority of our gossips, discussions, obsessions, media projections , programs and even so called cultural programs are all weaved around them. Actually we do not realize we are wasting much of our valuable time, with which our life is chronologically measured, engaging in these activities. This trend is very dangerous for a society’s culture, education and values.

6] This type of predominance has happened even in the case of many great scientists like even Newton, Galileo, Swammerdam, Boyle, Pascal all fell prey to religion which was a dominating stream in their days .
Recognition for Galileo had to wait till 1992- 350 years after his death. He was denied even a public funeral.

7] But the consoling factor is that I find a positive trend in many countries and among many individuals who have decided to come out of their shell and question, analyze, boldly criticize the accepted authorities with solid reason to enable progress and bring people out of their ideological and identification cages.

8] For example even in science Thomas Crumps writes that “as a scientist Aristotle is unequalled, both for his influence on posterity and for his capacity to be mistaken about fundamentals”, and the great Bertrand Russell went on to say, “everything…..that Aristotle said on scientific subjects proved an obstacle to progress”.

9] A few months back I got this article. Very true observation and any rational thing coming from any source we must try to understand and accept even it goes against the centuries of tradition

10] Ramakrishna pramahamsa used to be served tea in the evening by which time he would mostly come out of the Kali temple to answer queries from his disciples. Once he was in such deep trance he did not come out and Saradha devi had come with hot tea as usual and finding him still inside the sanctum sanctorum said loudly I have brought tea but I cannot come inside as I am having menstrual cycle to which Sri Ramakrsrishna paramahamsa laughed loudly and said, “if persons with menstrual period cannot enter then what about Kali Maa herself . I am seeing her in human form with all the biological aspects of a human being. So stop getting influenced by useless, meaningless and irrelevant taboos and do come inside”. Can there be a greater saint than Ramakrishna paramahamnsa.

11] Already it is one of the most nauseating things to experience i.e. any involuntary and uncontrollable discharge from any of the 9 holes in the human body.

12] The problem happened when religion and people manning religions, mostly males reigned over everything and framed rules irrelevantly for even purely biological aspects interpreting them with many cultural, social and religious traditions and taboos.

13] Leviticus 15:19-30English Standard Version (ESV)
19 “When a woman has a discharge, and the discharge in her body is blood, she shall be in her menstrual impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening. 20 And everything on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean. Everything also on which she sits shall be unclean. 21 And whoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening. 22 And whoever touches anything on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening. 23 Whether it is the bed or anything on which she sits, when he touches it he shall be unclean until the evening. 24 And if any man lies with her and her menstrual impurity comes upon him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean."

14] All traditions and taboos must give way for reason and scientific knowledge, and more importantly resort to evaluate everything with relevant tools and not entangle, entrench and engulf everything with ancient religious mores, irrational cultural and social evaluations, traditions and taboos either regional or global.

15] When I read the article in above link I wrote this

16] All these have continued because the society has been predominantly androcentric and in human species the mechanisms of dominance are subtle and oft times lurking and once someone/some group emerges as a predator or a predominating figure they always try to continue to have control.

17] It is this tendency to exercise control and resort to competing rather than co operating and complimenting that most of the problems erupt among various human relationships   

19] Here is very thoughtful comment for one the article by a girl called Ritu
“Next time when you refer to a woman’s menses, think of it as a process of preparation of the insides of her body, for it to be able to instill life into a fertilized egg and nurture it, till it becomes a tiny human being, ready to come into the world.
No part of a woman’s menstrual cycle is ‘polluting’ anything, anyone, or anyplace.
So let us talk about periods per se: I suppose it will be useful to put together some v. common facts (already mentioned in different comments and the article itself), for some of the uninitiated readers of this article:
a. It is not blue. It is Blood Red, Cherry red. Plum red. Deep red.
b. Degree of pain during periods varies among different girls/women. Also the degree of pain may even differ from time to time for the same girl/woman.
c. It is part of the natural process to prepare the lining of the womb for nurturing a fertilized egg. Since an egg is released every month and (Therefore) there is a chance of ovulation every time, this process repeats every month.
d. A lot happens inside the body between periods. Its just as similar a system as the systems of digestion, respiration, immune…
It has nothing to do with tradition, religion, faith, beliefs etc or any abstractions of the human mind.
It is a purely scientific system in the functioning of the human body and, I’d say, humanity. And if you call the Human Body a marvelous creation of God, well periods are a very integral part of the same marvelous creation.
Some amazing content related to periods:
1. When a man wore a pad!
2. In Humor – Women don’t bleed blue!…/women-don-t-bleed-blue”

20] Most important lesson out of all these is that we must question everything and stop not until we get rational response and refrain from justifying by comparing what other religions do? What other societies do? Who is authorized to decide on such issues etc? All these are symptoms of pinning life to traditions, unwillingness to accept facts, escape change etc. For want of time and space and to avoid controversies I have avoided scriptural nonsense on this issue.

Sanathana Dharma and why it cannot be labeled along with other religions

What is Sanathana Dharma  and why it cannot be labeled along with other religions, though for the convenience of the world the term Hinduism is vaguely assigned to it.
I like to sip and sink in the wisdom of our predecessors as Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”.

1] Essential attribute of Sanathana dharma is: listen to this very appropriate speech

2] This attribute is better perceived when we make a very balanced and more appropriate approach with one or more of these factors, preferably all of these or perhaps some of these factors  manifesting predominantly  in tune with what is our own subjectively dominating attribute and attitude . Balance of these four fundamental approaches to truth, what are they again listen to this speech by the same person
How Do I Know if I am Enlightened? - Sadhguru

3] ‘Hinduism’ the term itself is shrouded in mystery. For those who would be interested in brain storming or academic churning [sometimes an euphemism for mental masturbation] to know the origin and evolution of the term may read this small write up with links
Sometimes etymology the more we go back in time can throw unbelievable facts as the great and most renowned linguist David Crystal writes in his wonderful book ‘Words, Words, Words’ that the words Nice, Science, Conscience and Shit have a common origin when traced to  a few thousand years back.
Incidentally the word Religion itself is made of Re+ligare [latin] Re+lier [French] literally meaning re-link , i.e. linking again the ‘individual soul’ with the ‘Universal soul’.
So strictly speaking anything that does not contribute to this must not be called religion, imagine how many religious people will be thrown out of business.

4] Sanathana dharma is not, and better not pursued as a religion because religion is at best a noble institution for understanding the spiritual dimension of an individual human being beyond and besides his physical, intellectual, emotional selves and pursuit of realization of reality and trying to seek god’s grace. These two namely, realization of reality and  god’s grace are again too vast to explore and experience but never beyond our reach and sometimes surprisingly they land us in such arena or they land up on us or in us. You may read these two links  to know and understand what they are and most importantly what they are not and

5] The natural urge of human beings to grasp and get these two things realization of reality and god’s grace, propel them into multiple modes to search for it and therefore no single religion however noble or broad minded it is, can culturally, socially and geographically confine, control and cater to these two human needs and that is why many new religious movements and cults erupt.

6] Religion , any/every  religion could possibly contribute to realize our spiritual potential as well as  confine our frame of reference and scale of observation and thus prevent us from realizing our spiritual potential with its very well developed and attractive steps and tools.

7] Everything in any process of growth is just a step, important and inevitable, but not a stop. It is so with mother’s milk [our biological aspect of life]; it is so with learning of alphabets, words and numbers [our intellectual aspect of life]; it is so with hugging, kissing and cajoling as babies [our emotional aspect of life]; it is so with our learning and understanding of different concepts [ our philosophical aspect of life]; it is so with all forms of worship, devotion and all its concomitant rituals and religious practices [ our spiritual life] and so on. This is the inherent wisdom. A normal human being has to go through a process to grow in everything or into something. There may be exceptions like a Adi shankara, or a Bhagawan Ramanamaharishi.

We can neither avoid the steps nor get struck to them. That’s why I cannot accept the snobbism of so called intellectuals parroting pet slogans like religion without rituals, god without religion or religion without gods, spiritualism without god or religion etc. In fact I have books titled in each part of the slogan.

Media needs to introspect

ManifesTOI is good but what about manifestation of media

Through write ups like ManifesTOI the popular media is manifesting its own original avatar as fourth estate deviating from its yellow journalism, scandal mongering mania, gossip garnering games, biased reporting and irresponsible cover ups. True to its original avatar it covered a very wide range of activities pertaining to governance. But to sustain such qualitatively superb status media needs to do self introspection as a  part of journalistic manifesto while it sits on its assumed high pedestal passing  opinions and judgments on every issue ,individual and  institution as the know all and judge all umpire.

Media must remain as an unbiased umpire. Instead if it gets into match fixing then it will get into trouble. It created a baby called AAP which is now targeting the parents because they have stopped pampering its tantrums. Media cannot distort nor blindly reproduce distorted versions and mutilate the denotations and connotations of words to please some sections as most of the Indian media do like their selective and distorted use of terms like secularism, inclusive growth, communalism etc.

For example in today’s news items itself there is a news item about many poor kidnapped girls from Megalaya rescued and handed over to their parents. All newspapers mention it as ‘children rescued from a NGO in Krishnagiri’. Why can’t they publish the name of the NGO? What amount did the media get? Or who is preventing the media from publishing the name of the NGO? When media adopts these double standards and makes reports like members belonging to a particular community, learnt from reliable or a certain source etc be assured that popular media will get its burial sooner or later because correct information and truth leak through and linger on in social networks and the myriad other ubiquitous internet sources with more authentic proofs. If the newspapers do not mention the name of the NGO then the public know that it is not any Hindu or nationalistic NGO but a foreign funded NGO.

Laity and local people now have their own lexicon for media’s mutilated versions.

Media personalities at all levels would do well to remember these two quotes always .
"We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality."  by  Ayn Rand and “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” by John Adams.

Tamil movies and TV serials why they are so sickening ?

Let me tell something frankly about this much hyped audio release as for the lyrics nothing is new 

1] it is trite and tiresome. It is typical traditional portrayal of women as a desperate being getting into one way traffic mode offering and worse still obsequiously promising[ i cannot use swearing because of its connotations now] everything ,including an assurance that she would act as his mother, where is the identity of the wife, where is her reciprocal expectations, love, any love is a profusion of generous offering and also at least some reciprocal expectations.

2. music very mediocre even a 12 year old boy/girl can make a more intricate and better music with an ordinary casio

3. it neither sticks to any perfect swara of any single raga nor does it glide seamlessly into crystal clear ragamaliga.

4. it is very ordinary meaningless and worthless rhyme for pre-kg kids .

5. I think a society like India with very rich multiple musical traditions, great history excellent film music, with a very vast literary heritage, with slightly modern approach towards women,especially in her role as a wife must definitely move forward and produce better stuff but then who bothers about quality or creativity or originality or modern thinking in Tamil movie field.

6] the song yamunai atriley era katrile was better than this as a simple melody.

7] this sort of soul less whispering of simple harmonic motions through well equipped acoustic gadgets must be done away with .

8] Otherwise the already dwindling voice culture and pathetic sruthi suddham of south Indian vocalists will get worse.

9] Let us not pamper everything that pops up in cine field blindly .

10] today we tolerate five five kalchufy which has neither lyrics, nor language nor music but mere noise pollution.

11] unless and until the society stops sponsoring such juvenile and substandard stuff we cannot expect tamil film world to emancipate in the least bit fortunately in the past 12 years i would have hardly watched 10 tamil films and that most out of compulsion.

12] day by day the deterioration is so pathetic that the money spend on these unworthy filth can be better utilized for some social cause or promoting better entertainment.

13] as long as these types of tamil films exist and tamilians watch them too i do not think that any sane person would look at our cultural heritage or refrain from our social standards because films like literature are supposed to reflect something creative, original, aesthetic, socially enhancing etc, unfortunately tamil films , majority of them do none of these.

I think it is the same problem in culture too as in socio political arena, our wrong and misplaced identities influenced more by publicity. we are caught in a cultural vicious circle which says the artist s produce what the public enjoys , appreciates, pays for etc and the public say that they are made to watch what the artists [so called ] provide. we need to get out of this mutually destructive vicious circle rather than creating a ven diagram of more vicious circles in every field. we must keep at bay the kamala hassans , TM krishnas. It does not mean I am totally biased or prejudiced against Tamil movies if serious ones like Mozhi or sentimental ones like Abhiyum nanum or Thavamai thavamirundu or comedies I have not seen any in Tamil in recent past , all that they do is stand up and render some kadies, it is as bad as olichithram the audio presentation of movies, only in the field of Tamil movies this can happen. can you tolerate visual presentation of carnatic music? or presentation of shakespeare's works in painting form? or Picasso's paintings in audio form? please think. Why can't we produce a single serial like Yes minister,Lie to me , Castle, Big bang theory, Gray's anatomy,House etc so that the Tamil speaking public can also know about subjects other than mother in law daughter in law tug of war, submissive wives, drunken husbands, eloping wives etc. we have already deprived two generations of Tamil movie and Tamil tv viewers lot of good stuff. I sometimes pity the Indian movie and TV serial viewers which unfortunately is 80% of the population. The major culprits are these kamal hassans, sahruk khans, vijays etc and the accomplices are viewers especially educated ones. If Tamil movies and magazines are bad avoid them it wont hurt your tamil sentiments. On the contrary viewing and reading them will only blunt your brains, senses, sensitivities and we will be slipping into unworthy and inescapable identity cages

Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.

perversion and relationship

It is all perversion and in extremely bad taste. Relationship ,all relationship is not about confrontation, competition, callous condemnation or damaging domination it is all either putrefying relationships or petrifying progress and at best puerile perversions but real relationship , it is all about reciprocation, collaboration , co operation, complimenting each other etc. Today I wrote this a few minutes ago ,it [including the links within and books referred ] deals with the many manifestations and the grand gamut of relationships and identity , how they are interconnected and interrelated. The whole world is going through a churning process and people pick all the rot that gets to float on top thinking that is the essence.Dr. Brian Weiss says, "We are not icebergs floating separately—we are the water that connects them. We are all connected to each other" and “The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.”
-Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Identity and reality

Maoist Soni Sori, "most wanted" Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda joined (AAP) with Prashant Bhushan , a reputed lawyer also in the ranks of AAP . Kameshwar Bhaitha joins BJP. He is an ex-Maoist leader, wanted for killing 17 policemen. So why can’t we say BJP is also Maoist?

Our country made even Poolan Devi an M.P. and you know when women MPs of the parliament were assembled for a gathering no one could talk on any subject with Poolan Devi nor could she talk, Jayanthi Natrajan wrote about it very nicely in the Indian express at that time.

Such concerns and conversions personalities from violent aggressors or thieves into dignified personalities in the hope of them making total 180 degree metamorphosis is well intended  and great hope based thinking.

Who was Valmiki after all?. Society must give everyone a chance. There is a big restaurant [I have forgotten the name ] in Pigalle in some old Chateau or at 78 Boulevard de Clichy, Next to Moulin Rough France where a good hearted priest with good intentions runs a hotel and all the staff members are ex- criminals, prostitutes, ex-convicts etc because no other place accepted them including their former families. Incidentally it has one of the most popular bars with topless waitresses.

Jean Paul Sartre has written a great book titled Saint Gene real life character like Valmiki] wherein he excellently elucidates the psychological metamorphosis that such people undergo very lucidly.

But then this again must be evaluated from case to case and in proper context, just because BJP does it that cannot be justified and because AAP does it that cannot be condoned. however ,unfortunately, most of the character in Indian Maoist context are frozen in ideological identity and caught in their justification cages and therefore are hard nuts to crack and better to avoid than try to get media publicity and brownie points especially in a country of such enormous population with many well qualified citizens on the positive spectrum who have  socially at least so far never engaged any destructive activities in the country especially against the state like good doctors, great artists, great sports persons, great teachers, professors, engineers, lawyers, research scholars, academicians, political analysts, bureaucrats, military personnel, judges, police personnel, detective agents, successful businessmen ,honest journalists, successful traders  etc each with a great deal of experience in their respective fields and eagerly awaiting for an opportunity to be part of team India to contribute to Indian society .

Things vary from society to society and if we set bad trends in due course that can become order of the day and ultimately society will be in chaos, as it happened in NEW CALEDONIA, a small island near Australia with a very thin population of very fat people which continues to be a French colony participating in French elections. there some 8 decades ago the top French officials and businessmen who came to enjoy vacation to de- stress started asking for prostitutes to the tourist guides the moment they landed and gradually the tourist guides started noticing that prostitutes were becoming so rich that every tourist guide made his wife and daughters to get in to that trade for becoming rich so much so that the tourist guides now stand with their wives and daughters at the outer gate of airports, all the ports etc.

Mass mania, especially the ones which emanate either from passion whipping ideological fixations or fixed faiths or survival enhancing activities or socially  glamorous populism pandering activities or media propelling and projecting activities can lead to filthy clamor for filthier publicity as it is already happening in this country creating unarmed victims in the process as in the case of merit sabotaging policies, minority appeasement races in the name of secularism , which actually reduce minorities into dependent human beings on political party promises [ as if they cannot live decently on their own], freebies distribution which pampers society without any contribution etc.

In this context yesterday most popular newspapers had interviews and write ups about women achievers from films world, fashion designers etc not women teachers, women mothers, women sisters, women grand mothers, women doctors, women writers, women lawyers, women sports persons, women wives of popular personalities who manage everything at home, women musicians, business women, women traders,  women artists, women financial consultants, women industrialists, women educationalists [not the ones again with film connection] , women achievers in many other walks of life [ non governmental ] because the media is conditioned and condemned to look out for successful women  only in certain areas to the sad omission of more noble and meritorious domains of life wherein they have contributed.

Making more and more Maoist as popular candidates is like making only those students of the class who are sitting in last benches, trouble causing, not willing to learn, not participating in any cultural activity nor any sports as school people leaders or made to represent the school in all inter school cultural and academic activities, or making disobedient and dismissed army personnel to be defense minister. Are we okay with these, and then we can also welcome more and more Maoist as our political candidates to be inducted as MPs later on. Then why not terrorists, other criminals, let us get into the frenzy of pushing aside all the millions of sane and hard working normal as well as extraordinarily brilliant citizens. If they are lucky let them migrate and become big doctors, big entrepreneurs, big corporate executives, and big scientists abroad. Those who are not lucky remain frustrated as castrated bulls meekly watching everyone walkover. It is high time at least some sane newspapers wrote about these.

Let the Maoist, Naxalite supporters, their band of journalist etc spend some time in sane activities which will make them enter into the league of normal society and then they can even become governors but not this trend of making every anti national into a hero. This definitely must be the socio-psychological screwing by some foreign powers inimical to the nation’s development and growth. Let us not fall a pray to these.

While we debate on serious and patriotic bureaucrats, judges, Military personnel from joining the political parties immediately after retirement or resignation with opinions spilled all over saying that they must necessarily undergo a lay off period of one or two years before joining a political party we are very generously and gracefully willing to induct as candidates AAP, I am sorry ASAP, hardcore Naxalites, Maoists, Seditionists and their active supporters.

Unfortunately, unintentionally, unconsciously we may all end up extolling the wrong things. Both our individual self and social self are to a large extent shaped by how we relate with our circumstances and how our contexts relate with us.
Cognitive neuroscientist Bruce Hood's exploration of the building blocks of what we experience as the “self” in "The Self Illusion: How the Social Brain Creates Identity'

Amazon review of the book runs  excellently as , "Most of us believe that we are unique and coherent individuals, but are we? The idea of a "self" has existed ever since humans began to live in groups and become sociable. Those who embrace the self as an individual in the West, or a member of the group in the East, feel fulfilled and purposeful. This experience seems incredibly real but a wealth of recent scientific evidence reveals that this notion of the independent, coherent self is an illusion - it is not what it seems. Reality as we perceive it is not something that objectively exists, but something that our brains construct from moment to moment, interpreting, summarizing, and substituting information along the way. Like a science fiction movie, we are living in a matrix that is our mind.

In The Self Illusion, Dr. Bruce Hood reveals how the self emerges during childhood and how the architecture of the developing brain enables us to become social animals dependent on each other. He explains that self is the product of our relationships and interactions with others, and it exists only in our brains. The author argues, however, that though the self is an illusion, it is one that humans cannot live without.
But things are changing as our technology develops and shapes society. The social bonds and relationships that used to take time and effort to form are now undergoing a revolution as we start to put our self online. Social networking activities such as blogging, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter threaten to change the way we behave. Social networking is fast becoming socialization on steroids. The speed and ease at which we can form alliances and relationships is outstripping the same selection processes that shaped our self prior to the internet era. This book ventures into unchartered territory to explain how the idea of the self will never be the same again in the online social world." 

The author does all these while analyzing the biography of the most paradoxical character .Howard Hughes, at once a legendary aviator, movie mogul, tycoon, and socialite, and a reclusive billionaire housebound by his deathly phobia of dirt. He was a fearless aviation pioneer who set and broke countless records, yet he remained terrified of dying from germs. Hughes spent his final days unbathed, dressed in rags, with long sticky hair, curling nails, and the remnants of five hypodermic needles in his arms. He was worth $2 billion!!

Reality is neither any axiomatic certainty nor is it a frozen faith to be scrupulously followed by blinkered believes operating within fixed fences or identity cages but it is mostly contextually shaped by relationships and how we relate to others and things and environment etc . No human being can be know all or omniscient personality to dictate anything to the rest but we all need to respect certain time cherished and time tested values for the good of everyone.

India's problem, Indian's problem

Page 141of ‘Becoming Indian’ by Pavan K. Varma
“When people are the subjects of their own culture, their creative expression has self –assuredness and spontaneity, so they create a unique and effective language of communication even when the grammar is imperfect. This is because the idiom is authentic. But when people become objects of a foreign culture, a huge transformation takes place. Suddenly, a creative work is judged not for its intrinsic value, or for the heritage it is sourced from or is a part of, but for the degree to which it is comprehensible and conforms to the outsider’s culture. The process is all the more mutilating if the outsider belongs to the dominant political or military power of the time [or a putrefied political ideology-italics mine], and there is necessary prejudice, condescension and prurience in his gaze. When this happens, spontaneity reduces itself to self –conscious mediocrity; creativity seeks to qualify itself [to some irrelevant yard stick]; authenticity gives way to imitation; self –assurance is replaced by denial. An entire culture attempts to reinterpret itself in terms that will somehow win the dominant outsider’s approval. The ‘objectified’ people then thrive only as exotica; their historic role becomes that of the observed; everything external about them –and nothing of intrinsic value-is collated, classified and investigated. They finally end up as caricatures, divorced from their own cultural milieu and perpetually alien-in spite of their best efforts at emulation-to that of the outsider.” [What is more pathetic is the hitherto insiders getting converted into outsiders causing chaos]

Wendy’s ways, American’s woes, what sex says and wisdom rays

Wendy’s ways, American’s woes, what sex says and wisdom rays.

Everything has a limit, freedom does not mean unbridled right to do whatever pleases a person or to clandestinely pursue any hidden agenda or suspicious motives.

Life is an unmapped atlas which gets its maps based on our choices, beliefs, actions, reactions, thoughts, attitudes etc and it is in our hands to make each one of these continents as great and as good as possible. That’s why in every subject new and startling discoveries and newer revelations emerge every day, some reinforcing existing facts , some refuting existing facts etc and this happens in all spheres including science, archeological evidences, genetic evidences ,DNA studies etc .

While on one side the world is wonderfully widening its horizons of understanding for betterment of human beings and the environment as a whole establishing the unity beneath the factual marvelous variety helping humanity to see through rays of wisdom there are intolerant forces which want to ignite animosities through certain obnoxious individuals and institutions, ideologies all of which seek cheap notoriety by making life and society to swing as a pendulum between scandals [authors like Wendy and many journalists whose only path to short term recognition is through controversies and hurling insults] and vandals [terrorist and political schemers who manipulate society and misuse human beings and environment for their short term political gains].

Freedom of expression also involves obviously what you express? Why you express? And how you express? Etc. All these are, and must be subject to scrutiny at least by the parties who are the targets of that expression or victims of that expression. In fact these types of freedom of expression and uncensored propaganda has done more damage to humanity than even the worst wars because the destructive impact of war is at that moment and mostly material ,of course in some cases, the psychological and cultural damage that wars inflict linger for some generations, whereas these activities of passing on a venomous and vulgar write ups [ never call them literature] damage generations of people and sometimes inflict permanent damage as was the case of Aryan invasion theory which has distorted the whole perception of many generations of innocent learners because they were presented only with that version of history which was an intentional lie perpetrated by the colonial rulers to divide the masses so that it became easier for them to rule. This lie of Aryan invasion has been a great tool in the hands of perverts. In what way were these less harmful than the Nazi propaganda or that of communist Russia’s propaganda in the time of Stalin.

It is all the more in the areas dealing with expressing opinions and interpretations concerning  socio-cultural activities, involving political ideologies, pertaining to socio religious activities, interpretation and very presentation of historical events etc.

These subjects are sensitive  and susceptible to hurt the sentiments especially when the interpretations are perverted, provocative and prejudiced with ulterior and ugly motives, still worse peppered with over dose of pornography as in the case of Wendy, who else can imagine a elephant’s trunk to be a enlarged phallus  even a factory load of Viagra cannot make it that big, strong and flexible and that too to  link that with the nose [she referred thus Lord Ganesha’s nose], is intentionally meant to hurt , if she had bothered to study private organs scientifically there is only connection between the size of nose and size of vagina genetically as it is with the size of the big toe and penis. I can give more scientifically based porn literature for her that will be educative at least in that subject and I can also prescribe herbal juices which can do wonders for various pornographic activities with authenticity because  being a person born in India which practiced a culture that has treated sex normally as one among the many important aspects of life so much so that it had the world’s first detailed authentic scripture for sex in the form of Kama Sutra and had sexual postures depicted in the Gopurams [steeple] of temples of worship itself and to my knowledge no other religious denomination has made such bold and frank assertions about sex with ease in such ancient times.

On the contrary the West has either made sex a taboo or got over- obsessed with it starting with the Freudian faux pas of interpreting everything and venerating porn as the perennial priority and preoccupation of human mind that too with the parochial patriarchal western tinge of viewing the feminine only as an object of pressure and this has reflected in the cultural attitudes of almost past two to three generations of the west and unfortunately these extreme attitudes towards sex is infecting the whole globe as well.
Coming back to nose and sex  Wendy may refer to these two sites for updating her knowledge

Correlation between cytological characteristics of the nasal epithelium and the menstrual cycle.   -FREUD’S NOSE ,  for practical research in sex and for  88 strange facts about sex [Besides humans, bonobos (a type of chimp) and dolphins are the only animals that have sex for pleasure.]
So what we expect out of any sane institution in such situation to do is to remove such perverted persons from its campus and the publishers must never entertain such author within the compass of their publications, for, ultimately the institutes and the publishers both suffer loss of image and reputation and if either of them have a concern for such author, then they must take that author to a psychiatrist to help her/him out.

On a national level the country whose citizens have been hurt by such filthy write up must have had the spine to lodge an official protest without mincing words or as a cultural group affected by such provocative piece of nonsense, here I mean Hindus and Indians must boycott such institution and such publisher till such time such author is removed from her post or position. This will establish that Hindus too have self respect, they too can be united and that no one can have a free ride calumnizing  a great tolerant way of living called Sanathana Dharma. 

I am open to any healthy criticism and/or questioning of any Hindu practice or tradition but not filthy write ups with half baked knowledge and total lack of understanding of both the subject of expression as well as abysmally poor tools used to handle the subject, I mean very poor standard of language with inappropriate words and expressions.
I can give a sentence by sentence rebuttal and a prescriptive psychological remedy for the perversion of the person and her culture in a more flamboyant language but the wisdom of Sanathan Dharma says, wise people must not waste much time and energy dealing with persons of mean culture and meaner mentality.
Beware the intellectual strength of India can cause retaliatory havoc  through very powerful and more provocative and thought provoking , not pornographic, writing which can cause irreparable damage to your cultural milieu which has neither pride of ancestry nor hope for the future.
Subjects like those of pure sciences, mathematics, higher forms of spiritual and philosophical enquiry  etc the opinions or interpretations do not distort facts. That’s why saner societies and people pay more heed to them and spend more money on it than these institutes which waste money in funding such academics when millions of Americans are suffering without employment. It is time that the US/UK administration also woke up and corrected such wrong priorities like producing such filthy write ups, sponsoring such mean academics and spending for missionary activities across the globe etc instead such money can be used to improve and generate employment within USA/UK for their own citizens and make them psychologically competitive with the Indians, Chinese, Japanese etc.
Homogenizing and hegemony  are old pastimes and it is time that US/UK cultural mindsets  realize that and throw out all those trying to work in those directions as that would only backfire , be that in political ideology, economic theory, religious bigotry , academic  institutions.
Nature is unity in variety and it is the way that nature manifests in all spheres and it would be better to appreciate and accept it as a fact, even if one cannot assimilate it, rather than attack variety. All these started with labeling anything that the western colonial and hegemony hackers did not understand as pagan, heathen etc rather derogatorily. Life for the individual and the society is a constant process of adjusting, experimenting, experiencing and learning without any prejudicial or parochial pushing away of unknown, misunderstood and unfamiliar aspects of life.
The marvelous recent revelations and multiple ways to promote harmony through a proper rational approach, scientific understanding and generous attitude and humane ways of living are many and here I am quoting some of them. I would like publishers and institutes to encourage such works so that we can gift something worthy to posterity rather than something filthy like Wendy’s works.

Proper sexual perception is good but obsessive perversion of sex is a mental disease and a cancer when it is pasted on other subjects irrelevantly and therefore all sane forces need to fight against such cancer like the one that Wendy has spread through her book.

Find below links for useful relevant information on rational, scientific understanding of life and proper ingestion of facts and exalted interpretation of generosity. 

The genetic origins of today’s Native Americans have long puzzled scientists. Some experts thought that their ancestors came to the Americas from Europe; others argued that they had arrived from Asia. Now a consortium of scientists have analyzed DNA taken from the skeleton of a young boy who had lived in Montana 12,600 years ago and shown that he had Asian not Eur
opean origins. The skeleton was found with the distinctive tools made by the Clovis people, revealing that the Clovis are ancestors of Native Americans. DNA was taken and analyzed with permission from the Native American tribes who live in the area with a beautiful picture in the YouTube.

I would like to end with a quote by Pema Chodron,  "We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves."
