    The illustrations and parables given in all holy books are just stories. It makes no difference whether these are Hindu, Muslim or christian. But all this does not matter. as long as beliefs do not harm, all is okay. But when there are conflicting versions about these mythological figures, conflicts arise. e.g. recent controversy on Durga and Mahishasur. There are some times communal fight among Muslims also on Muharram- between Sunni and Shia. This happens mostly at Lucknow. Such conflicts can be avoided by treating the past as something irrelevant or mere stories so that current generation can live peacefully.

    The very fact that the Durga Mahishasura conflict is a recent one shows how divisive communal forces, which also include some so called rationale and self proclaimed intellectuals among Hindus , are taking advantage of Hinduism and bringing in conflict between caste groups, need one say more ..


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

     I agree with you and ready to accept what you said provided if you please go and say same lines to other religious groups too. Please don't tell me that you say these things in the capacity as a  Hindu. You have said it at many previous occasions that you have no faith in any religion so Hindu or other religious groups should not be a restraining factor for you.

    Ramayana and Mahabharata  are the two encyclopedias of ancient Aryan life and wisdom, portraying the ideal civilization for the entire Humanity. These Epics are ageless. They lived for thousands of years and live for eternity. They should be treated as Treasure chests of wisdom. Not mere Fairy tales.

    I am writing here and on Facebook. I don't go to people- Hindu or others-  for talking on any political, social or religious issue. It is only occasional interaction with known people- Hindu or Muslim-. I seldom talk in person to anyone. I am a simple person leaving for work early morning and reaching home late-  doing professional work most time.

    How does it satisfy the self styled nationalists that if someone is genuinely discussing the inherent weaknesses  of our religion he should simultaneously do same for anothr religion. No one is afraid of doing so but what is the logic in doing so.

    Sure no one is afraid of asking these things directly or indirectly- here is a direct question to you- which side are you on

    Anti nationalists or nationalists??? Religious or anti religious???? I mean you support Kanahiya or Anupam Khair and here I do not have BJP or Congress in my mind because parties mean nothing personally to me.

    Don't answer me if you are not comfortable answering my questions.

    I will answer you. What is there to be afraid of. I am a nationalist. I am not very religious but surely not anti religion. I would choose Kanhaiya because he is starting his life and can be molded. Anupam wants us to be greatful to him because he came from a family whose father earned 90 bucks a month and see where he has reached. Millions of persons in this country had parents earning much less and they reached very high in life. So what is new in it. Now you can also answer if you chose to do so. Are you pseudo secular or pseudo nationalist? Do you want minorities to go to Pakistan or remain here as second class citizens? Is the country to be ruled by Constitution or majoritarianism?

    All things considered we have good governance by the present government elected by the majority of the people, no hanky panky there ..thankfully majority of the people are happy because they see hopes of a thriving economy and the majority community so far relegated to being second class is finally after decades finding its voice. Let us hope this state of things continue for as long as it takes.

    Modi is the choice of the Country. Despite teething troubles, the present Government  is faring well on all the fronts.
