in response to reader comment: To Curmally

Dear Vijay,

Greetings.

It is a sad day when you find it necessary to insult or hurt another's feelings because you have a need to do so. What harm has my Prophet done to you or for that matter What harm has any Prophet done to you? They have brought down God's books.

I have had the oppurtunity to study the Rg Veda, parts of the Atharva Veda, some of the Brahmansa,and the Itihasas the Upanishads ( which mean to sit at the feet of a teacher) in English and when I say the Upanishads, I include the Bhagvatgita.There are some brillian transalations. By Max muller and the Sarvapalli Radhakrishan who was also the President of India. I did this when I was actively involved with a branch of Archaeology. You see we have not deciphered the Indus valley Cultures scripts. So the other alternative was to study later texts to see the differences in them. Special subject of my studies was the Tapasic practises that led to Yoga. The Sun in the Vedas is known as the Tapti.

In the end, It does not pay to hurt anyone's beliefs. Even if you wish to exercise your democratic right to do so.

With Regards

Fazal Habib Curmally
