I think that there is a strong sense of Indian nationalism, and more specifically, Hindutva nationalism, at play here. I have been observing this on social media over last 2 to 3 years. It’s quite a dramatic shift from the peaceful, moderate, secular, Gandhian-type India that I knew. You see no dearth of articles and posts on social media glorifying Hinduism, Indian heroes, etc. At the sa

Kashmir is divided amongst three countries – India, Pakistan, and China. This video shows how the modern countries of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh came to be between 1947 and 1975 . It should be noted that what was to become India and Pakistan in 1947 was really carved out of British India. That said, there were also 565 independent princely states which either joined Pakistan or Indi

LOL! I can't believe it. Fox Business blocked the actual video debate between Trish Regan and Liu Xin on "copyright" grounds. Right. The reality was quite different. Liu Xin outfoxed Trish Regan. This was very obvious from all the comments the video received from viewers worldwide.

Shoddy work? That's not always true. I was speaking to an American petroleum engineer about a year ago. He was trying to source to for a part for the project he was working on. He found that the ones made in the USA and Europe were not up to specification, and expensive on top of that. He found that the Chinese were able to provide precision parts at a fraction of the cost. Other Chinese co

I think that it is premature to judge China on the basis of one mans dwelling. It's a huge country. You are bound to have shoddy areas as well as posh areas, as there are in other parts of the world. I was in transit in Guangzhou a few months ago. I was surprised by how modern the airport was. My cousin was on a business trip to Shanghai not long after. She was taken aback by how modern

India warned Sri Lanka based on information gleaned from an ISIS suspect. Again, I doubt if this has anything to do with New Zealand. Just ISIS trying to re-establish itself with the help of the locals.

Yes, this was a colossal intelligence failure. The Sri Lankans were warned, but failed to act. Now, the Sri Lankan Defense Minister is saying that this attack was revenge for New Zealand. I don't buy it. Have you heard the rant from one of the terrorists, Zahran Hashim? I think that it is more about establishing an Islamic Caliphate in Sri Lanka. It may also have something to do with IS

11. Victims
The victims came from different places, including a few from my country. It turned out that one of the victims, Mohd Tarmizi Shuib, was a former colleague of mine from a company where I worked several years ago. He was shot and injured. There was no news about his 17 year old son who was declared missing for days. I just woke up to the news that his 17 year old son, Haziq Mohd Tarmizi, was c

Brian, You can see some of the falsehoods that is spreading about conversion to Christianity in India in social media pages. Quite often you will see them depict Christians as wild-eyed, and totally insane. Now, I have been to churches in India, and I have yet to meet a single Indian Christian who behaves this way.

Ray, You are referring to Shashi Tharoor's video. Shashi is a senior member of the Indian National Congress Party in India. India will be having its national elections around April or May 2019. It will be largely between the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party led by Prime Minister Modi, versus the Indian National Congress Party, led by Rahul Gandhi. It's quite obvious that a lot rides on

Modi was once banned from the USA over the Gujarat riots. However, the ban was lifted once he became Prime Minister. Modi has met both Obama and Trump. The relationship between the USA and India is dictated by geopolitical reality. India is buffer against China and Pakistan.

Are you aware that the Hindutva now claim that the modern caste system is a British creation to divide, rule, and convert? They are also now saying that the Manusmirti, a document that contains some of the vilest descriptions of the caste system, is not so. And while they do this the victims of the caste system mount.

India has a population of 1.339 billion people. I am not sure how big the Hindutva population is. But size doesn’t matter if they are the ones who are in control. The question is whether moderate Hindus will stand up to the Hindutvas and stop them in their tracks. I am not sure. I have certainly sent some links to Hindus. They either keep quiet or deflect to some other religion like Isla

I have many Hindu friends over here in Malaysia. I even know a few Hindus from India. They are all moderate in their views. Now, I have known of the Hindutva from India for years. But I never paid much attention to them. I really got to know them when I went online. Social media has brought our worlds closer. It was a wake-up call. Now according to a 2011 census, India’s religious populat

There is so much to say in response, that I am not even sure where to start. That said, here is another video that gives insight into Hindutva thinking Actually it is intelligent and well educated Hindutvas who are whipping up the sentiment amongst poor, uneducated Hindutvas. And some of them reside in the USA. Here is an assessment of one of them, Rajiv Malhotra, who is a well known autho

Reports indicate that the ruling party of India, the BJP, and its Hindutva ideology will trigger commununal tensiions ahead of its polls, and increased tensions with Pakistan. Having seen some of these Hindutva types on online forums from India, I believe it. The Hindutva are way different from the moderate Hindus that I have met.

I have seen dogs walking around Malaysia that resemble dingos. They could well be dingos. Most Malaysians don’t identify them as such. They just regard them as a normal mutt. I recently came across a Wikpedia entry that stated that an indigenous tribal group from Malaysia bred a dog called the Telomian They say that the Telomian is a cross between a Basenji and a dingo.

The Maori arrived in New Zealand from eastern Polynesia in waves from 1250 and 1300 AD. The Maori language is similar to other Austronesian languages in the region. This should come as no surprise as the Maori are of the same ethnicity as other Austronesian people, incluidng the Malays. The Malay word for "sky" is "langit". The same word is used in Indonesia (includin
