The Price of India Foreign Invervention in Nepal
Indian intervention is the major cause of Nepal's crisis by Dirgha Raj Prasai...
"...Due to the naked intervention of India, its future also is running
at disintegration. A Book 'Breaking India', by Rajiv Malhotra and Aravindan Neelakandan exposed-'
India's integrity is being undermined by three global networks that
have well-established operating
bases inside India: (i) Islamic radicalism linked with Pakistan, (ii)
Maoists and Marxist radicals supported by China via intermediaries such
as Nepal, and (iii) Dravidian and Dalit identity separatism being
fostered by the West in the name of human rights. This book focuses on
the third: the role of U.S. and European churches, academics,
think-tanks, foundations, government and human rights groups in
fostering separation of the identities of Dravidian and Dalit
communities from the rest of India.'.."
Nepal-Haiti Cholera link??
This blog shows how the devastation and earthquake in Haiti was used
by developed countries to create fear psychosis using media and in the
name of donations...

Carpentier posts: This Russian article draws the lessons from the current NATO
intervention in Libya for the unstable Central Asian countries but it is
also relevant to India...
Re: Response to Indian dancer upset at my critique of Christian Bhar
"There is a strange convergence between the impulses and motivation
that prompt the attempt to "modernise" Bharatanatyam and
those that energise the Christianisation of Bharatanatyam.
This is probably because the process in both cases is the
same: the gradual decontextualisation of this art form by
separating it from its wellspring, the Natyashastra:
"Possibly 200 years before the birth of Christ, a gentleman called
Bharata wrote a treatise of 6000 shlokas in Sanskrit called the Natyashastra.
This seminal work is a meditation on every aspect of creative
expression, including theatre, literary construction, music, dance
and body movements, rhythmic patterns or tala, architecture,
sculpture and painting. What is important, however, is that it does
not purport to be only a technical manual. Bharata's encyclopaedic
investigation is about what constitutes the aesthetic experience -
rasanubhav.....In the course of these inquiries....he also
enumerates the three categories of expression: nritta (dance based
on pure rhythm), nritya (dance to a rhythm with mime) and natya
(drama with music and dance)....at a time when most other parts of
the world had not yet fully developed a language to communicate,
Indian thinkers had come up with a vision of aesthetics that
encompassed every aspect of artistic endeavour. If they had merely
put together a compendium of art, it would have been for those times
achievement enough. But for them to have absorbed with such depth
and insight what constitutes the fulfilling artistic
experience, is astonishing. The basic tenets they came up with, or
debated, grew and evolved, but they always belonged to an
overarching philosophical world view." I have quoted Pavan Varma at
It is this "overarching philosophical world view" that is sought to
be mauled both by the "modernists" as well as the inculturalists.
The "modernist" thrust has been stated cogently by A Seshan
). The inculturation mission in the arts is exemplified and openly
stated by the late Monsignor S M George of Tiruchirapalli ( http://www.kalaikaviri.org.uk/article2.htm
). This is also brought out clearly in the BI book...."
The Goa Inquisition by A N Priolkar is a very good book on this subject.
