I really sad to hear about your state of mind. let me clear again, I am
arguing for the genuius of the authors who composed Mahabharata. the mail
did not speak of any insecurity but the very thing about education system
and what is being taught to kids points out that at least one set of people
are not comfortable with what is being taught. one can very easily infer
since history writers could not locate krishna as historical figure, there
is this sustained effort from the side of this coterie to prove that things
like ram setu or krishna existed. independently, the research is
interesting. but this select group of people (namely a set of insecure
Hindus) would use this research for racial superiority and other things that
comes along with the right wing political. no wonder you can so easily
i nurse hatred against the hindus although i have repeatedly appreciated the
authors of mahabharata and their sense of astrology.
and frankly, you are no different from a bully: "And there is so much of
shit flowing around, it is not fair to blame you alone." first you clean
your shit then you come and say that mr taraprakash.
