  1. Let's be straight about it, it's simply a set of many indic cultural beliefs put under a one umbrella term by the lazy British EIC who couldn't be bothered to research more on the subject. There are no fixed set of beliefs or religious scriptures. Every region has its own sort of variations in the common cultural practices. There's no one single authority. I'm not saying that's a bad thing. In fact it's the best thing ever which shows we aren't tied to a fix no of stone age beliefs like the desert religions. It gives a plenty of scope to evolve which in the philosophy of human evolution makes perfect sense. My only issue with it is calling these practices as a religion. We are a Dharma which is very different from your usual religion as understood by the Abrahamics.

    Ayodhya Verdict

    There's a mosque known as Shahi Idgah adjacent to Krishna Janmbhumi temple in Mathura. I guess something like that could be worked out.

    Ease of Doing Business ranking 77-80 now for 2018-2019

    That is an incredible achievement and should be celebrated keeping aside all political biases. We should aim for the top 50 next year and if the NDA comes to power again, I daresay it is plausible.

    Marriage culture & Surname importance in Indian weddings

    It's the same for us. Can't marry intra clan as they are considered Brothers and sisters. Infact marrying within your clan is considered worse than marrying outside your caste altogether.
  7. It's Alpesh Thakor's doing. Good to see repressed castes' leaders emulating their former oppressors.

  11. New Delhi: In a victory for equality and the evolution of law, the Supreme Court on Thursday struck down adultery law that only punished a married man for having consensual relations with another woman, as being unconstitutional. The woman was exempted from punishment. Decriminalising it as a criminal offence, Chief Justice Dipak Misra said, “Mere adultery cannot be a crime. But if any aggrieved spouse committed suicide because of life partner’s adulterous relation and evidence is produced, it could be treated as abetment to suicide”. Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code, 1960 that governs adultery was also found to be “arbitrary and violative of Article 14 (right to equality) of the Constitution”. The provision deals with the offence of adultery and imposes culpability on the person who has sexual intercourse with a woman who is and whom he knows or has reason to believe to be the wife of another man, without the consent or connivance of that man (husband). Noting that marriage being treated as a social institution and Parliament making laws protecting women was not the right approach, the court decriminalized the same. As a result, man and woman will be treated alike under the law. Elaborating on this, CJI Mishra said, “Parameters of fundamental rights should include rights of women. Individual dignity important in a sanctified society. The system cannot treat women unequally. Women can’t be asked to think what a society desires.” The court was hearing a batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the legal provisions governing adultery in India, in so far as it being discriminatory against men. Kaleeswaram Raj and Suvidutt Sundaram, counsels for one of the petitioners, had asserted Section 497 to be in violation of Article 14 (equality before law), 15 (prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, caste, sex) and 21 (right to life) of the Constitution of India as it was heavily gender biased. “Criminal law is supposed to be neutral. Section 497 is prejudiced against males and imposes an excessive penalty”, it was submitted. It was also sought that in light of the judgment of the Supreme Court on right to privacy, Section 497 must be looked at from a fresh perspective. Adultery was punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to five years, or with fine, or with both. The woman, or wife, is exempted from the purview of this section. ______________ Waise sahi kiya. It was a redundant law based on Victorian ideals of morality.

    This thread is for sharing your guilty pleasure interests and the things that are too gay but you like them nonetheless. For instance I love this song from a forgettable Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore film.

    Rate Of Unemployment In India Highest In 20 Years: Report

    Yeah and all the above needed specific conditions peculiar to their regions they originated from. Chinese like revolution could never work in India. We are far too heterogeneous for that. Any attempts at that would instantly lead to the country breaking in multiple parts.
  17. That's really shameful tbh. Had any South Indian state done it, it would have been a breaking news with pride of Gujarat Shri Amit Shah ji accusing them of Dravidian propaganda and what not.
  18. Is it really about the haughty pride though? I confess I haven't followed this case earnestly like others. What's the official explanation by the Gujjus?

    Rate Of Unemployment In India Highest In 20 Years: Report

    Ghanta. Around 20 million people perished during the great leap forward. Do you honestly expect such an experiment could be carried out in India without any major consequences?
