Nagraj and his team of "Brahmand Ke Rakshak" superheros from Raj Comic wipes the floor with The Avengers and anything else Marvel has to offer.

Good point. I say both Diamond and Raj comics had more entertaining content than DC/Marvel for readers with Indian background. Add Champak, Tinkle, Amar Chitra Katha, Indrajal and we guys have a pretty formidable comics collection. Hope to see some of those characters represented in movies and web series...but not under the supervision of the typical good for nothing general Bollywood chewt artistes. I say more in the spirit of the Malgudi Days adaptation by Shankar Nag.

Hitler gets too much flak because of the powerful Jewish lobby. There have been much more brutal dictators such as Pol Pot/Stalin/Mao whose crimes have been swept under the rug to make Hitler look like Satan reincarnated. Similarly nobody wants to talk about how Western imperialist powers practically raped China during 19th century with Japan providing icing on cake with Nanking massacre.

Again agree, Jewish lobby is cunning as *.

Yup and very easy on the eyes. In fact I always had a liking for vampire/werewolf/witch themed entertainment shows and TVD had the potential to be the best in that genre.

Bengali intellectuals deserve a "zordar g**d pe laat"

Harsh but present ones have brought it upon themselves. Also add Mallu, Tamil, Punjabi "so called" intellectuals to your GPL list. The toxic left wing ecosystem (in academics, culture, politics, media, entertainment) has contributions from all types of backgrounds but these 4 deserve special mention. I don't have anything against the common folk but boy are there some A grade assholes in their mix. UP and Maharshtra too produce such samples but behind the big 4. Of course not including Muslims and Christians who are pan India, strictly talking about the Hindu/Sikh qaum.

Realistically speaking, Kashmiri Pandit exodus was not the worst thing that happened otherwise a mass extinction pogrom awaited them. I find more fault in how inept the govt was at that time in the population migration and how they failed to rehabilitate KPs elsewhere with more dignity and compensation. I am glad we have only Muslims left in the valley, hope our bravehearts finish all the termite jihadis still lurking there, enforce Xinjiang type discipline amongst the entire population and make those disgusting rats pay. No need of restraint, no more pro-India Hindus/Sikhs left there so we have nothing to lose.

Tolerance does not necessarily mean endorsing and encouraging behavior you disagree with.
 
Lesbian porn is the best thing to happen to humanity.

I didn't like Uri. The flare of emotions and deshbhakti abound in bollywood films never work for me.
 
Atheists are more annoying than religious people. This I say despite practically being an atheist/agnostic.

Really Jews are so much powerful ?
Because mainstream Media is nowadays slowly creeping towards hating Israel.

What made these comic stand out from the rest was the smart integration of Indian mythology in their universe to which most of us could relate.Not to mention the use of scientific principles which gave the whole universe a legitimacy. I believe it was under Anupam Sinha when Raj Comic truly reached at its peak. I remember reading them religiously in my childhood and had a huge collection specially devoted to Nagraj And Dhruv.

I have been a huge fan of this genre but sadly there had been a very few good quality works done in it this reducing it as a joke of genre esp marketed to teenage girls. Despite that , I enjoyed reading Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice.

Vampire Diaries , I believe, could have been a game changer had they decided to maintain it's darker theme and sidelined Elena and other stupid chicks. Damon is a very underrated character but that biatch Elena and her gang of giggly girls ruined the whole fukin show for me.

The thing with Bengali intellectuals is though that they are the most attention seeking of the lot and would constantly argue just for the sake of it. The other day , this lady on Twitter drew parallels between Bhagat Singh and Afzal Guru asking why the former is so venerated when infact he was nothing short of a terrorist.

People like these make me lose my mind. 

And @Gollum The Dalit intellectuals which you have praised earlier are even the worst. They call Hindu Gods all sort of names and organize events in JNU in praise of Mahishasur, calling Goddess Durga the names which I can't mention here. There is even a famous book published by that lot wherein they claim that Mahishasur was originally a Moolnivasi who was killed by trickery by Durga , a malicious Aryan lady.

I will never forgive Indian Govt the way they have dealt with the entire Kashmir issue. People from my area have been dropping off like flies , killed by Pakistani cockroaches and all we hear from the Centre is silence on the issue.

Last month only a distant cousin who got married only 10 days before , was martyred in Kashmir. I'm sick of all this tamasha that's been going on.

A problem with Aryan Invasion theory scholars is they try to interpret Vedic and Puranic stories and stuff like Mahabharata and Ramayana as History to malign Hindus while they are clear mythologies on par with Roman/Greek/Nordic stories.

Also:
Durga is actually thought to be originally a Munda/IVC goddess (other thought is that she is a manifestation of Inanna-Ishtar who was imported to India and eventually merged with Parvati) so Mahishashur thing is a big joke

Yeah - I agree ,this Dalit groups are vilemost termites .
Isko concentration camp mein daal do.
They really needs to be treated like how they pretend upper castes treat them..

Ye sab harami hai mere bhai. 

I am aware of the Durga/JNU/Mahishasur controversy. I have nothing but hatred for JNU and the urban maoists. I don't like the Dalit activists who tie up with those bastards, I am hoping for a non violent, democratic Dalit uprising in Indian politics and certainly not one that resonates with the "Break India" forces. Even an increased role for Dalits in national parties will be a positive development. Leftists are hypocritical scumbags, for all their love for Dalits how many Dalits are there in the politburo? Sab dikhawa hai, feckers don't give a damn about them. 

 

Regarding the Mahishasur plotline there are some communities in Bengal that worship him. So again a difference in interpretation, as Hindus we have to take everyone into our fold. You know how important Durga is to Bengalis...but still people there won't talk ill about the Asura King. Come to think of it, why is it that he is a villain while a dick like Indra is a deva? Mahishasur's main fault was that he kept on defeating the devas and they threw their toys out of their prams....how many dick moves has Indra played in Hindu mythology? Didn't the devas have negative traits? We need to go beyond the good-bad interpretations and treat the stories as moral lessons. And there should be scope for differing interpretations. Same with Ravan, many Tamils worship him. And they are not wrong, even though Ravan had negative traits he had some kickass qualities, was the greatest devotee of Shiva and a big influence on our culture (music, shlokas). And he didn't touch Sita once in Lanka, he did what he had to do to allow the moral lesson to play out. And Kumbhakarn too was a good rakshas, any day these 2 over that traitor Vibhishan  for me, subsequent history shows that our landmass has suffered more because of treachery than anything else. Besides all the villains in our mythology had some great qualities that made them worthy to be killed by our Gods and Goddesses. Are you familiar with the Jaya-Vijaya story?

 

Again I condemn the filthy language the JNU scumbags used against Durga, I don't even consider them worthy to speak about our religion. But I am not sure praising Mahishasur or taking pride in being from his lineage deserves criticism. After all isn't Hinduism about taking everyone along? If we could merge the Shaivites, Vaishnavites and Devi worshippers and still find a place to respect everyone, we should be equally courteous in adopting many local legends and customs even if they go a tad against what we are taught by our elders. One of the reasons we are losing many adivasis to missionaries is because Hinduism hasn't been successful in bringing them into the fold of the giant umbrella of our dharma.

Sanjay Manjrekar makes a lot of good points. Sometimes he is too bleak for his own good but a lot of time he hits a lot of nerves with sensible points.

This idea of non violent Dalit movement while may sound good but the reality couldn't be farther. The newly emerging Dalit leaders are for some reason hardcore leftists (Jignesh and Khalid are BFFs) and vehemently upper castes. They are as bad as their oppressors in the past used to be and want a hegemony of their own kind throwing out National interests out of the window. For them upper castes are scourge on Earth and Hinduism, or Brahminism as they would call it, nothing more of wasted cult. To achieve their ends they could stoop so low as taking support of radical Islamists as we saw in Saharanpur where Imran Masood and Chandrashekhar Rawan of Bhim army are chums together.

I have no issues in people worshipping Mahishasur , Ravana or Heck Duryodhan for that matter. But I do have problems when they start using disgusting language about Goddesses such as Durga going so far as calling her a prostitute. I mean what the hell! 

Not to mention spitting on the pictures of Lord Hanuman (I'm sure you remember the video) in an open rally. Is that what we call Dalit empowerment? 

And its even more funny since Shaktism has its origins from Eastern India and borrows heavily from the tribal customs of that region.

Geeta despite being a religious scripture is actually quite a decent book to read if we keep aside our biases. Some great advices and life lessons in that one.

Entertainment wise though this is my list of religious scriptures:

Puranas>>Bible(Old testament)>Bible(New testament)>Quran

 

Puranas have the best stories imo. Also I love Yahweh of Old testament. Such an amusing, impulsive fella just like my grandfather. 

Quran is very boring and brings nothing new story wise.

Coffee tea doesn’t wake you up as much as people pretend it does. Try ice cold ice cream if you realy want to stay awake or power yourself up. I tried this 6 years working random shift and staying awake during emergency ATC calls. Nothing better than something cold.

 

I love Ice Creams is another story.

Been awake straight for around 30 hours now. Had coffee every other hour to help me get through it.

So yes it does help.

There is something wrong about tap water in US. I live on a very restricted diet and physically active, but I gain weight very easily here for no reason. I went back to India last year during break, and I naturally lost 4 kilos inside 2 weeks without being active at all.

The water in India suits me more than tap water in US.

This is an interesting line of thought. If one were to view at the holy books from a purely philosophical frame of reference, the Upanishads are by far the most interesting of all the religious books.

 

The Puranas are supposed to have the best stories/short stories. They are a collection of stories after all. The other canonical literature that you mention double up as How to live your life according to xyz for noobs coupled with a few stories. A fair comparison for the Puranas would be to an assorted collection from the Greek/Norse mythology.

You are right. Unfortunately though I haven't read Upanishads or Vedas yet so can't really comment on that but I used to love reading Puranas and the two epics and they were super fun.

I did read the English translation of Quran and I take your point that it's more in the mould of philosophy and rule book of sorts.

But I love Old Testament. Mighty amusing and fun.

Does it kill Indian men to apply deodorant and maintain personal hygiene? Not even getting to the disgusting habits in public or grooming.

 

Doesn't apply to everybody but have to say most Indians do stink, body odor as well as mouth. I have to breath through my mouth half the time I talk to colleagues or when I am in close range, one of them has such poor oral hygiene that it smells like poop. And good luck sitting with them in some confined work place. Some are proud to admit that they take bath once a week :puke:

 

Women are better than men obviously but there are exceptions. Goras often make fun of Indians about our smell, and have to agree. Perhaps some of our countrymen continue with their mannerisms in phoren land giving credence to the stereotype. It is often overblown, but that is a common theme affecting all stereotypes.

Ha! reminds me of a funny incident I had yesterday. So I ran out of my face wash supplies and went to get some from a nearby store. The owner who was a Punjabi declined saying that they don't sell such stuff anymore. Naturally I was surprised and asked him the reason. 

He said earlier the area was populated by students from North East and such products were in a demand a lot but in last couple of years most of them moved out to live in a nearby area and were replaced by students from the other states (the usual culprits). As per Uncleji , those SOBs won't even buy a deodorant even in friggin sweaty summers. To quote him he had to use about 10,000 bucks worth of deo at his home lest they expired since nobody was willing to purchase them.

 

Yes we are in general pretty *ing disgusting.

Just the arms? I have seen some women with hair above the lips, grosses me out :((. Again don't want to sound mean but this hairy stuff is more common in South than Bengal/North and the latter has plenty of such examples.

South Asians aren't genetically gifted to excel in combat sports, practically every ethnicity in the world apart from African pygmies have better gene stocks than us to shine in these sports. And I say this despite India's recent successes in wrestling, boxing....if you follow the disciplines closely you will realize that we have no global standing. Effing South East Asians are better than us, not to forget the 3rd world countries in South America and Africa. 

And it isn't because we aren't trying hard enough, there are scientific reasons. We can do well in many other physical sports, just not the combat kind.

By usual Indian standards North East people are very good looking, also physically very fit on an average. And the girls are bombshells :love:. And they age gracefully, as opposed to the Punjabis for instance. I can't figure out how they haven't taken the film industries by storm.

Yes I didn't wanna come across as rude but I had southie chicks in my mind.

Some of them are really attractive esp those Tamil Iyenger ones but would it kill them to visit a parlor once in a while.

I really  wanna date a hot Tamilian who I have had my eyes on for a long time. It doesn't help either that they are really really conservative and uptight and ****.
