Dear Shri Dhani, if you allege that this is written by Hindu organizations you mention (RSS, etc) and use words like so-called Hindus, may I ask you what so-called XYZ or so-called ABCD you yourself are? In yor eyes only Hindus are so-called but if you go on studing all religions, they are all so-called Chrisitans, so-called Muslims and so-called Buddhists, my dear IAS officer! You write as if you are the only TRUTH and everything Hindusim and Bharmisim is vauge and anything anti-Hinsuism is true. You are blind in your fantacies. You are a puppet and part of anti-Brhaman anti-Hindi anti-Vedic camp which is fashinable. If you think that Buddhist are angels of peace, just find out how cruel and calm they are by going to China/Korea/Japan and at home. Bhrhmans were and are the most intellectual people or religion had ever seen a=or will see the world over. As Gita and Mahabharat and Upanishads and Veda(h) were written in time immortal, you are able to write or comment on them. And as they say in Veda(h), who knows the ultimate truth? No, one! My Dear Ret. ISA Officer, not everything western scholars and their sinces and technologies say is TRUE! They will (and have already started to an extent) say that Ved(h) were written in 1949 (they will bring new research) but it doesn't make Ved(h) loose anything, they were and are eternal. No matter how many slaves of english mindset come and go, their devine light will shine for ever. You are too short, too-unqualified and too-biased to even touch and read Ved(h), let alone understand it. I am not from any Hindutva camp (even Hindu is just a name calling based in river Indu - Sindhu) but can tell you Vatican fits your description of Bhahmans and if you real courage try to ask questions to them and then you will learn who is doing harm to our ci=ountry and culture. You have no idea of slavery, killings, genosides done by other non-Indian relions, Sir or if you have, you chose to forget it. I appreaciate the in-depth analysis you write and appreciate you as a very learned man, no doubt about it, but your conclusions are rather ridiculous and not worthy at all becasue you write in a judgmental way as to why Krishna chose Arjuna foe Gita and what the Das-Avatar were etc as if you were sitting in-front of Bhrmaji or Vishnuji and Shri Krishna on the moments of the start of the Great Mahabharat War (were you in the same chariot (Rath) of Shri Krishna or was with Duryodhana on his Elephent, so that you can write with suc judgments? Sir, no one witnessed or can truly tell what it was thousands of years ago for our religion. Some people also bash (majority of westeren Christians) as Prophet Mohaamad took six year of Ayesha as bride so he was a child abuser/molester and he commited a great crime and break laws (dont laugh, this is one of many comments so called americans put on this subject), OK but they forget that it is crime or abuse since last very very few years (may be 10-20 or so), until it was not a crime at all or atleast it was accepted in Arabia of that time (and even today) for 60 year old to marry a 6 year old, so it was some 1400 age in the Arabia of that time .. we can't judge it today. We can only say, whatever happened, happened according to traditions/culture/established social norms/people of that time and leave it. Atleast he was given by Abu-Bakr his 6 year old daughter Ayesha to Prophet, if he has wished he could have captured and kidnapped thousads of child brides in the thousads of fights he did, like you must be knowing what Islamist invations did to India or even today what the Padres of Christina missionaries are doing to Indian children in missions in the guise of helping them, how why skinend foreighners come to visit india. And if you think Brahmans were not OK, just research what the europeans (the so-called masters of the world today) did in Americas/Australia.New Zealand to aborigionals to them. Just gloryfying one off examples of Shambuk or Eklavya (again I say who really knows what and why ot happened on ancient times) are nothing,,, And even after retiring from ISA (i.e. technically you are no more an ISA or entitled to use this title, I believe), you can't leave without it by putting (R) in brackets, your 40 years past is too important to you, why Hindus and Bharmahs should not have importnace of time-immortal past?
