Indian Missile / Nuclear Policy not independent

give the yankees the multi billion dollar nuclear deal and they will set the agenda for your nuclear / missile policy too!!!:
"There is no plan for going on for Agni-6 in near future. Because missiles over 5,000 km range fall under the category of intercontinental ballistic missiles, of which we do not feel any requirement yet,"

Bottled water: Conspiracy of soft drink companies

When I had gone to banAras (vAraNAsi, kAshii) in 2000, I was terribly thirsty (it was about 38 deg C) and went to a home-turned-shop and asked for water. the fellow there told me it would cost me 10 Rs. I was furious at his inhuman attitude. But this is what kaliyuga has come to: we have started selling water!

rAmanavamii: greatness of rAma nAma

varaShA ritu raghupati bhagati tulasii sAli sudAsu,
rAma nAma bara barana juga sAvana bhAdava mAsa..
Meaning:
O tulasi (dAsa) bhakti of rAma is the rainy season, for the dAsas of rAma who are the paddy (of the shAli variety), the two excellent syllables, "rA" and "ma" are the sAvana (shrAvaNa) and bhAdava (bhAdrapada) months.
Purport of this shloka (from the rAmacharita mAnasa of gosvAmii tulasii daasa) is the following:
Just as paddy develops in its conducive season, rainy season (varSha R^itu, which is composed of the shrAvaNa and bhAdrapada months), the dAsas of rAma develop in the "rA" and "ma" syllables, which are akin to the shrAvaNa and bhAdrapada months of the (conducive) season of rAma bhakti.
The greatness of rAma nAma is indescribable even by the greatest sAdhus and yogis. If we were to identify bhaarata with something, the rAma nAma can be one. The learned say that it is the essence of veda, upaniShad, purANa, Agama etc.

Valentine's day, An initiative by a Tech School and a response to a "modernist"

Mr. Amit Varma of the India Uncut blog comments on an initiative by a technical college
http://trunc.it/5ihjc
WTF- such an over-reaction by the author to an innocuous incident?
1. We ("sanaatanii hindus" of whom i assume to be a humble spokesperson, just as Amit Varma has arrogated himself to be the spokesperson of "modernity" and "21st century" ness) don't see any reason for Amit Varma to be fuming if the "sisters" and "brothers" in the college willfully participated. Freedom of expression? anyone?
2. I don't find anything offensive in sisters cooking for their brothers. I have been greatly pampered by my sisters all through my life. I have been fed when hungry regardless of the time of the day or night. I will never be able to repay their debt in a thousand lives. They are the class of women for whom a smile on their brother's/ sister's/ mother's/ father's/ husband's lips -- after having had the most deliciou…
