    Hahah what an absolute piece of drivel. 
    Here's a list of prominent revolutionaries from Bengal: 
    Bagha Jatin, Surya Sen, Khudiram Bose, Ghosh Brothers, Jatin Das, Prafulla Chaki, Pulin Das, Sachin Sanyal etc. 
     
    Both Subhash Bose and Ras behari Bose , two stalwarts behind Indian National Army were from Bengal. 
    So much for effeminate Bengalis, eh?

    Stradlater reacted to Mariyam in Vedic astrology   
    I think I've shared this episode before on a similar thread.
    I scored a 48 during my 10th grade prelims in Maths. My mom went into an over drive and dragged me along to a baba (local and without a dot)/numerologist who gave me a taveez and added an 'i' to my name. Maryam -> Mariyam. All of this for a predictably exorbitant sum of money. And behold, my score in the final exams was 84. 
    It works guys. 
     
    PS: I always knew we were the true deen. Even our occult practices work. 
    PPS: I should have added another 'i' and gotten to a 100.

    Stradlater reacted to zen in Doctor Zhivago (1965)   
    Doctor Zhivago is a stunning masterpiece by ace director David Lean. In terms of scope and impact, it matches Lawrence of Arabia.  Technically brilliant, at times, it feels like a continuation of Lawrence of Arabia, but in a different clothing (Fur coats replacing Thawbs).   The film has almost everything that one could ask for in an epic -> stunning visuals, a memorable background score by Maurice Jarre, a superb collection of actors, and great direction. It covers life during the Russian Revolution, includes First World War elements, and advances a love story in a poetic way. 
     
    It is the highest grossing David Lean film and among the biggest hits of all time (inflation adjusted):
     
    Highest-grossing films as of 2019 adjusted for inflation Rank Title Worldwide gross
    (2019 $) Year 1 Gone with the Wind $3,713,000,000 1939 2 Avatar $3,263,000,000 2009 3 Titanic $3,087,000,000 1997 4 Star Wars $3,049,000,000 1977 5 Avengers: Endgame $2,798,000,000 2019 6 The Sound of Music $2,554,000,000 1965 7 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial $2,493,000,000 1982 8 The Ten Commandments $2,361,000,000 1956 9 Doctor Zhivago $2,238,000,000 1965 10 Star Wars: The Force Awakens $2,206,000,000 2015  
     
    Though I rate Lawrence of Arabia as Lean's best effort (a monumental achievement at the time of its release in 1962), Doctor Zhivago (1965) comes close to it: 
     
     
     
     
    The Frozen House:
     
     
     
     
    If we strip all the elements, at its heart, the film is a love story set in the backdrop of the Russian Revolution. Zhivago (Omar Sheriff) is an orphan raised by a nobel family. Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin), the daughter of the nobel couple who raised the orphan, loves Zhivago and eventually gets married to him. The couple has to endure hardships due to the atmosphere in Russia. However, Zhivago has an eye on Lara (Julie Christie), who has been in various relationships including an unspeakable one. 
     
    What is interesting about the film (and different from other love stories) is that even though the focus is on Zhivago-Lara love story, you are not really rooting for them. Much like Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) in Gone with the Wind (1939), it is Tonya that that you are rooting for and want Zhivago to be with her. This tension is what keeps the viewers relatively more interested in the film. The key characters, Zhivago and Lara, whose love story is impacted by various events and characters, can appear more like villains (or big losers) at the end of the day. How many of you feel similarly?

    @Global.Baba I have come across inter-religious marriages sans conversion in BD where husband is Hindu, wife Muslim. One step further I have travelled with a couple from Chittagong who came to India for medical treatment, wife who hails from a Muslim family adopted a Hindu name and was practising her husband's religion. BD has a Special Marriage Act like India, Pak will implode if anything close to that is brought into effect.

    Doubt it, Bangladeshis are way too timid and don't have any army or intelligence agency to speak of. Also not as radicalized as Pakistani society, there are still many Bangladeshis who are secular in spirit and give precedence to culture over religion. I am not kidding about the last part, there is an atheist undercurrent and many Bangladeshis hate the Islamists more than our so called liberal Indian Muslims....I can't imagine an equivalent of Shahbagh protests (2013) by Indian Muslims, radical Islamists who were influential and also powerful politicians (cabinet rank ministers) got hanged like dogs in the aftermath. Even though it has a state religion, BD constitution talks about secularism, their judiciary has upheld that part at least till now.  More than 20000 Islamists are in jail now after the targeted killing campaign of atheist (and critics of Islam) bloggers, no comparsion with Pakistan.
     
    Also Mushfiqur gets a lot of hate on ICF, many here feel he hates India, happy that he got rejected by IPL. Maybe true but I desist from hating someone with a spine. I remember some 5-6 years back he wished Bangladeshi Hindus for Durga Puja with many pics of the Goddess. Some Islamists (JEI) abused him, threatened him, asked him to take down his post. He didn't, instead he used some harsh language (in colloquial Bengali) and said that Bangladeshi Hindus will always be more dear to him that JEI scum or something like that. Bangladeshi Hindus can achieve higher positions compared to kafirs in Pakistan, in Bangladeshi movie industry Hindu actors have been paired up with Muslim actresses (romance) eg Chanchal Chowdhury See the difference? 
    None, only comparable country is Israel in terms of history/hostility. Very difficult to survive with such geography. Maybe in Africa...not sure, have to check the map, Kenya has enough problems because of Islamic aggresson, shares border with Somalia...not surrounded by enemies as such.

    Yar nobody gives a toss about common people believing in this stuff. The problem arises when people in authority and ministers in power engage in such verbal diarrhea. 
    Like when Satyapal Singh ex Mos HRD a couple of years ago claimed that Darwin's theory was false. This is where the trouble lies. Modi needs to control these elements.

    My issue is with Hindutva morons promoting pseudo science in the garb of ancient Indian technologies. It gives an impression that this was all we had. It makes us a laughing stock. 
    There are so many ways by which you can take pride in our ancient achievements and yet we continue to confine ourselves to the pseudo scientific nonsense like flying airplanes in Ramayana or nuclear weapons in Mahabharata. 
     
    You want to revive our lost scientific glory, how about bringing in light the works of Aryabhatta and Varahamihira(whose Panchsiddhantika was a groundbreaking work in astronomy) or the Sulvasutras which go back to vedic era. Do you know Sulvasutras contain one of the earliest expressions of the principle behind what later came to be known as Pythagoras theorem in geometry. 
     
    Aryabhatta was the first astronomer to give a scientific explanation of eclipses. He was also first to discover that the earth rotated on its axis. He worked out the correct equation for calculating the orbit of a planet. Oh and did I mention that he was also regarded as the father of the Algebra. 
     
    Brahmagupta's texts contained a systemic discussion of astronomical instruments as well as methods of computing astronomical elements from readings taken with them. 
     
    Indians discovered decimal system of notation. Our mathematicians were using the system in the 5th century CE while in Europe the old cumbersome system was followed till the 12th century when they finally learnt the new system from the Arabs. In fact, Arab writers such as Al-Biruni and Al-Masudi give the credit for the discovery of the system to the Hindus. 
     
     
    That's just on mathematics. I don't even wanna start on our medicinal achievements. 
     
    So you see , such a vast repository of knowledge and we chose to limit ourselves to the Gaumutra. This is my beef with the Hindutva people.

    Brave Hindutva warriors supported Muslim League in Bengal, Congress may have 100 faults but can't match the cowardice and opportunism of the heroes of today's Hindutva movement.

    Sanghis Hindutva is more destructive in nature imo. 
    They are weakly people who lack the will and courage to make strong changes. Their intellectual class is a joke and they don't have any long term plan on how to revive the lost glory of our nation. Take for instance the education curriculum. Despite being in power for two consecutive terms with a strong mandate, they couldn't dethrone the leftists from power when it comes to historiography. Jokers like Irfan Habib still get to have a say in the important matters when it's a well established fact that his Marxist/Aligarh ilk has dealt the greatest blow to our history by rewriting it in a manner as it suited them. 
     
    We don't need treatises on Gau mutra or ancient Indian plastic surgery nonsense. We need Hindu intellectuals who can take on the might of the leftists who still remain entrenched in their position and that can only happen with a concerted state support which sadly seem to be lacking. 
     
    Calling Akbar a bigot and Pratap a real victor of Haldighati won't be enough. You have to strike at the root of Islamo- Commie nexus.
