Best book, in my modest opinion, about D-Day is Antony Beevor's masterpiece D-Day. [As Dutchman I read it in the Dutch translation.]
The God, The Prophet, and The Book
The #ConstitutionOfIndia represents a tyranny of ideas unleashed on a civilisation which for millennia has been a playground of ideas, not defined by a single idea, book or thinker https://t.co/m6hm9QAMFn #NarendraModi #SadhviPragya
..As seekers and rational thinkers, let our sole allegiance be to the truth and not to the leaders, spiritual or temporal, howsoever hallowed, neither any schools of thought, political, philosophical or spiritual, nor any books. We will outlast them all...
The very concept of sole allegiance to the constitution is flawed. The constitution is not a book set in stone. At any point in time it should reflect the will and the aspirations of those it is supposed to serve. The Indian constitution with several of its provisions retained from colonial times and more than 100 amendments made to it since it came into force, some of which were inserted without following due process, is hardly a book to look upon as infallible and pledge unswerving loyalty. (Is there such a book or any creation of human intelligence that can be regarded as such?)
If Nehru had not created IITs, India would have made billions of dollars by licensing the use of Zero under Vedic Vishwa Licensing Shastras. No software or IT exports needed. He declared IITs under Article 370, sadly. Patel disagreed. Ask the statue.
Nehru did not create IITs. Dr BC Roy, CM of West Bengal, set up first IIT in Cal in 1950; it later moved to Kharagpur. IIT Kharagpur Act came in 1956. Soviet Union set up IIT Powai; US set up IIT Kanpur; Germans set up IIT Madras (all of them with trade surplus and aid). https://t.co/joJe3XSgMk
Symmetry is the relationship that mattered most to Einstein’s legacy. But it hasn’t yet helped to explain why gravity is so weak, why the vacuum energy is so small, or why dark matter remains transparent. https://t.co/EfWkG3f845
Ancient Mittani Empire shows a strong connection with Vedic culture and Sanskrit. Needs more research on possible connections involved. Is this an early indication of India's Soft Power to the West much like those to Asia and the East prominent later? https://t.co/zi906tYM2z
I agree with @arvindneela . Too much feel-good nonsense generated by lazy and tamasic folks. Ancient Indian narratives are rich in knowledge of history, science, technology, philosophy, medicine and more. But to extract in a factual, objective testable manner takes efforts.
Did you know that west of Russia, the Lithuanian religion "Romuva" has a stylized Svastika as its official symbol?
Its deities include Parjanya, परजन्य, Žemė, Žemyna, (Skt. Kṣamā, क्षमा, Earth), Veju Māte (Skt. Vāyu Mātā वायु माता) and others.
We cannot thank Prof. Kak enough for bringing these ancient connections to light.
My opinion is that the Kurds are the descendants of the Mittani, and that the very name "Kurd" is probably derived from "Kuru", just as is the name "Kurush"/Cyrus - the emperor of Persia. https://t.co/ReCzc3mRzR
Ignore the bullshit mystification: Modi and Shah are just two vegetarian assholes from the West Coast of India
