  Indian Prime Minster's visit to Bangladesh
Posted by: ravish - 09-06-2011, 09:38 PM - Forum: Strategic Security of India - No Replies

The visit of Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to Bangladesh may open up a new dimension to the bilateral relations between the two countries. As we all know a sizable section of the Bangladesh public hate India for a variety of reasons. Some do it for historic reason, as they have been taught to do so since the time Bangladesh was East Pakistan. Others do it as they see India as a predominantly Hindu nation and hence cannot be a friend.



Within these limitations, it is to be seen how far the Awami League Government will go ahead with the various important proposals. The most important perhaps will be the agreement on the exchange of the enclaves. On this it is expected that the sailing will be much easier as it entails some more land area being transferred to Bangladesh. With regard to the other proposals, one should keep the finger crossed.



On the Indian side also the refusal of the West Bengal Chief Minister to go to Dhaka has put a spoke on the sharing of the Tista water. It will be used by the opposition in Bangladesh to a great extent to project how India is unjustly denying the rightful share to BD. It may become a repeat of the Farakka problem and the politics surrounding the same, of which BNP took full advantage.



The long pending Indian proposal for transit route through Bangladesh to the North Eastern States is another politically sensitive issue in Bangladesh politics. Knowing very well that it will bring substantial economic benefits to Bangladesh, the opposition parties will voice serious concerns on many imaginary fears.



In the above circumstances one has to wait and see how far the visit of Prime Minister will yield results.

Is Hare Krsna Iskcon a hindu religion or was Prabhupad influenced by years spent in catholic school to form a misionary religion ,similar whit christianity?

Let’s look more carefully at what “Prabhupada" said in the

Room conversation February 14 1977, Sri Dhama Mayapura



Satsvarüpa: Lord Caitanya, when Ramananda Raya brought this up (That the perfection of life can be achieved by following Varna-ashrama dharma) He said it was not possible in this age to introduce this.



Prabhupäda: “Yes. Not... He did not say possible. Ihä bähya”

(He said that it is external- iha bahya, meaning that it has nothing to do with the true nature of the soul – divine love for Krishna) Caitanya Mahaprabhu was interested only on the spiritual platform. He had no idea of material side. He rejected material side.”

Satsvarüpa: But don’t we do that also?



Prabhupäda: No. Our position is different. …



In this statement “Prabhupada” rejects this teaching of Sri Caitanya, saying that what if

Caitanya Mahaprabhu was interested only on the spiritual platform…

Our position is different. (meaning that one should be interested also in something else than spiritual platform-

eventually practicing karma (in reality vi-karma) mishra bhakti – under the later label daivi varNashram dharma, which in the beginning of his preaching in the west SB Narayan M. reject too)



It is true that everybody can choose what he pleases, or is qualified for. Everyone has his/her own independent potency – shatantra shakti, and follow his own iccha shakti desires.

One can follow Sri Caitanya’s teaching or one can follow “Prabhupada” teaching.







“Prabhupada” knew siddhanta:

“… Caitanya Mahäprabhu personally took sannyäsa. He rejected completely material. Nishkincana – (one must get rid of any material possessions).”



And than he says again that his followers should not take up this teaching of Sri Caitanya:

“But we are not going to be nishkincana. We are trying to cement the troubled position of the...”



And for the fact that he don’t want to follow this teaching of Sri Caitanya he says that there is a prescription in the Bhagavad-gita:



“That is also in the prescription of Bhagavad-gétä. We are not rejecting the whole society.”



The idea to model the society is of course very nice, so that it may bring a good environment for spiritual practices. But this was not the concern or the teaching of Sri Caitanya, and “Prabhupada” knew it well, than he says further:



“Caitanya Mahäprabhu rejected everything, ihä bähya. Rejected meaning, “I do not take much interest in this.” Bähya. “It is external.” He was simply interested in the internal, the spiritual.”

“But our duty is that we shall arrange the external affairs also so nicely that one day they will come to the spiritual platform very easily, paving the way. “



But Sri Caitanya doesn’t say that this would be our duty (Sri Caitanya says this is external, this has noting to do with the duty or true nature of the soul – divine love for Krishna / Radha-krishna, caused by tasting His sweetness and beauty).



And Prabhupada adds:



"And Caitanya Mahäprabhu, personality like that,.."



This is cheating, Sri Caitanya rejected it. How can He like that what He rejects it?!



Here it is the core of the teachings of Prabhupada and his teacher SB Sarasvati:



… But we are preaching. We are preaching. Therefore we must pave the situation in such a way that gradually they will be promoted to the spiritual plane, which is not required

There is a great jubilation all over India at the moment as most political parties have come to consensus on the Jan Lok Pal Bill. This is the corner stone of India's fight against corruption. Kudos to Anna Hazare and his team!

[size="6"]I was watching a debate on ND TV news and was left with the feeling that the host gave more time to people who spoke for the government. In fact some of the views expressed by UPA supporters indicated a blatant nexus between them, the news channel and the Government. Sad state of affairs. [/size]

Late-night crackdown at Baba venue

- Police fire tear gas, take Ramdev out of Ramlila grounds


[url="http://http://sarvesamachar.com/click_frameset.php?ref_url=%2Findex.php%3F&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.telegraphindia.com%2F1110605%2Fjsp%2Ffrontpage%2Fstory_14073679.jsp"]link[/url]

Quote:New Delhi, June 4: Baba Ramdev was taken out of Ramlila grounds in a late-night crackdown by police who fired tear gas and dismantled the stage at his protest venue, hours after the Centre accused the yoga practitioner of reneging on a deal to call off his fast.



Around 3am, Ramdev’s whereabouts were unclear but the Delhi police commissioner said he had been taken to a safe place. Police sources said he would be taken out of Delhi. But the government clarified that he had not been arrested. Section 144 was imposed in the area.



Earlier, Ramdev’s supporters formed a human chain around him. The police fired tear gas as the crowd threw stones.



The police were reported to have withdrawn permission for Ramdev’s yoga camp.



At 7pm, minister Kapil Sibal had held a news conference and released a written undertaking given by Ramdev yesterday to end his protest. Sibal then issued a veiled warning: “If we can reach out, we can also rein (him) in.”

This is disgusting.

  Kerala demands to shut down Endosulfan Plant
Posted by: prmadhura - 04-28-2011, 10:19 AM - Forum: Newshopper - Discuss recent news - No Replies

The Government of Kerala is well within its Right to shut down the operations of any industrial entity that has been degrading its Environment and affecting, adversely, the health of its people - including those owned by the Government of India.

To get it re-opened the Government of India needs to appeal with the High Court and may be later at the Supreme Court.

The resultant legal battle would sensitize the citizens of India and another peoples movement would erupt to force the

Central Government's policy on the production and usage of Inorganic Insecticides & Pesticides - which have been eroding our digestive and auto immunity system and also giving us many permanent health problems, through contaminating our food and water chains.

We have seen that mere hunger-strikes and other Agitations do not move the juggernaut of the Government Policy Making Mechanism which has been bought out by the money bags.

  Military Economics
Posted by: Capt M Kumar - 04-13-2011, 06:14 AM - Forum: Military Discussion - No Replies

http://www.dailypioneer.com/331248/India...orces.html

India should draw lessons, the most obvious being ordering a whole Government review of existing capabilities, threats and opportunities and future forces to cope with the challenges. The Indian Army is engaged in an ad hoc transformation which is ‘uplinked’ with the other two services. The Indian Air Force and Navy’s numbers of aircraft and ships have gone haywire as their long-term re-equipment plans never materialised due to bad planning and funding support. Consequently India is already the world’s biggest importer of weapons and will spend $ 100 billion in the next decade.



Britain has cut costs and capability through a defined review mechanism. India is to boost military capabilities which must derive from getting the character of future conflict right without dissipating resources on the fashionable ‘full spectrum of war’. Identifying critical missions and affordable risks must come from political foresight, good generalship and deft diplomacy. We must not duck the review at any rate.
