Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

3-day mourning for Pope, but for Swami Ranganathanandaji.....

Hosadigantha, Kannada Daily, Mangalore, May 16, 2005

When the Pope died, the Congress-led UPA government observed three-day national mourning, while even the predominantly Christian nations did not do it. But when Swami Ranganathanandaji, the President of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, attain Mahasamadhi, the government of India did not even remember to express mourning. This is unfortunate, felt the anguished Hindu organizations. As they pointed out, Swami Ranganathanandaji was like the second Vivekananda “who took the message of Hindu culture and spirituality across the world in a manner that earned appreciation, understanding and also a high level of respectability.”

i dont know who ur sir but let me tell u smthng it pains like hell when supporting a hindu cause is treated as
a shame and communal i myself am a hindu and all my life has maintained that hinduism is the only nationhood concept india can have, bcos all this definition of hinduism as religion is blasphemy as hinduism is more a concept of nationality in itself quite contrary to western philosophy which we quite assuredly flaunt these days.
would like to correspond with u more
