  1. Happy New Year to all ICF members!!!
  2. Fair enough, seems like caste system was on full display in the epic Mahabharata as well, but some of the stuff prominent Brahmins have done in the past history are simply atrocious, for example Dronacharya when he asked for Ekalavya's thumb even though he refused to teach him archery. That is some sinister mentality......shame!! In the Mahabharata, Ekalavya was the adopted son of Hiranyadhenu, who, in some accounts was King Jarasandha's army commander, and in others the tribal chieftain of the Nishadas.[1] Ekalavya wanted to become a disciple of Dronacharya, but was rejected. Not to be discouraged, Ekalavya made a statue of the famed teacher from the mud Drona walked upon, and worshipped it as his guru. He then began a disciplined program of self-study over many years.[2] One day, when Drona's students were out in the forest, Arjuna saw a dog that was unable to bark due to a construction of arrows in and all around his mouth. The construction was contrived in such a way that the dog could not bark and yet it did not harm the animal.[3] Drona was amazed and wished to meet the archer who had accomplished such an extraordinary feat. When Ekalavya appeared, Drona asked him who his guru was. Ekalavya replied, saying that Drona himself was his guru and explained what he had done. Arjuna angrily confronted Drona for breaking his promise to make Arjuna the greatest archer in the world. In order to remedy the situation, Drona asked for the right thumb of Ekalavya as his dakshina, a fee or donation generally paid to a priest or guru. Ekalavya severed his thumb and offered it to Drona, as asked, while being aware that, by doing so, he would lose his prowess as an archer.[4][5] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekalavya
  3. Is it true that Brahma, the creator of Gods made caste system in Hinduism?
  4. That was a question dude, some Bramh Gyani can explain how it all started
  5. Nothing against Brahmins here on ICF, who started the caste system in India? Was it the Brahmins since they are supposed to be the Supreme high caste in India
  6. Some of the posts on this topic provide good info about Sindhis. Growing up in B'lore....my personal experience with Sindhis was that they are a very quiet & knowledgeable community, don't get involved in unwanted hassles in a society and majority of them I have come across were very successful businessmen.
  7. Christmas is over, all presents delivered by Santa and he deserves to chill out now

Lighting inside the Electric Fire place can be turned on without turning on the heat.
  13. Thanks to all for the wishes and also for liking our house. It means that all the time we spent on designing, layout, exterior & interior colors etc of the house was well worth the time. Contemporary is in trend these days....simple yet Modern. @Real McCoy Np, everyone is entitled to their personal opinion...cheers!!
