Taj Mahal or Tejo Mahalaya?

I know there are many controversy theories that people come out with. But this one is kind of special - in that it challenges a world famous fable/story. Now we all have been fed the Shahjahan-Mumtaz story. It used to fascinate me no end that how was Mumtaz distorted to Taj? I mean if at all it should have been Taz! Also, I really do not have much faith the "glorious" accounts of the Mughals that we have been fed.. they were distorted by the British and India's own communist historians! I just … [Read more...]

What has India Given to the World and Why is it Important?

You must have gotten and read many of those emails that talk of India's historical accomplishments. They are meant to enhance and help our ego. Why do we need such a "boost" to our "ego"? I believe that for Indians it has been the issue of getting their place under the sun... after the damage that Brits did to the culture. Examples like messing up temples and buildings like Konark etc.. and usurping the inventions like Wireless by Marconi from Jagdish Chandra Bose are but a few examples where … [Read more...]

India: its Good and its Bad

In reply to my email on my impressions of India on my recent visit, Anurag had written his thoughts on how there is little hope. In another personal message, he also felt that people from other countries - specially the Europeans and Australians - do not feel bad going to India because of the dirt, stray animals and other loud and dusty environment that the country has to offer. Raj, another friend, argued that some of his friends would like to go to India for just those reasons and that despite … [Read more...]
