India is going to lag behind as long as we look to our past glories instead of to our future possibilities.
India is going to suffer as long as we give priority to outdated slogans of nationalism and patriotism instead of exploiting the possibilities of globalism.
We are a society with our sentiments still in the agricultural mindset and our way of life in a modern setting. This lack of synchronization between our mindset and our realities are not going to take us anywhere.
Unless we change our mindset from what it was 100-1000 years ago we are not going to improve. 
The greatest advantage China has is that Communism destroyed religion there. So they have been able to adopt fast to modern realities while we are still fixated on our imagined glories of the past.
We have to change our mental infrastructure if we are to catch up with China or the West.

Nepal, Himalayas 'Many Switzerlands' of India in 20-30 Yrs

July03, 2020 (C) Ravinder Singh ravindersinvent@gmail.com

 

Though our people were United Against BRITISH RULE but were divided after British Left. Our first big loss was Tibet – Source of our Rivers, We Failed to Jointly Develop Our Rivers.

 

In 1990 at a Canada-India event I observed 'India Contribution to World GDP is 2%, India Should Target 98% of Rest of the World GDP, Develop Products for the World Market.'

 

1990 is Important – Then Per Capita GDP of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka was more or less same as China. In last 20 years We Lost Our Way – Most of the World wanted to INVEST in India and this in many ways SAARC Region as well – but first Rahul Bajaj in 1996 and later Ambani-Adani Sabotaged Foreign Investment – India now lags behind China by $15 Trillion Annual GDP – and Credit Suisse data for 2019 show – Wealth of China at $63.8 Trillion, India $12.6 Trillion, Bangladesh $697b, Pakistan $465b, Sri Lanka $267b and Nepal $68b – China in Wealth is

 

5 Times of India, 100 Times of Bangladesh, 150 Times of Pakistan,

250 Times of Shri Lanka and 1000 Times of Nepal in Wealth.

 

Even India has $70b Trade Deficit with China – Rest of SAARC Only Getting China 'AID' not Equal Partner – FREE TRADE is POSSIBLE in SAARC Region.

 

I regret that India had failed to Lead SAARC region to achieve $500b Trading Block, 2,00,000 Hydro Power, 50% of Oil & Gas Needs Met By Pipelines, Tourism along 2000 km Long Himalayas, Industrial & Food Products, Textiles, Auto Industry, Railways, Power Generation Transmission and Distribution. But most IMPORTANT – CLEANEST REGION Like Switzerland. Even more IMPORTANT – Claiming TIBET as part our own region, A billion SAARC region will have Tourism places in Tibet as well.

 

Over a Billion People live within 500 km of Himalayas to be DEVELOPED with CLEAN ENVIRONMENT – Fast Railway Network and Safe Housing & Tourism Infrastructure. Switzerland, half of Nepal has 550 Dams, Japan has over 3000 Dams – Himalaya Region very few Multipurpose STORAGE Dams – Bhakra, Pong, Thein, Tarbela, Magla, Tehri, rest are mainly Run-Of River type which partially utilize Site Potential that too when Water Flows in Rivers. JAPAN has 20 GW Storage Dams plus 40 GW Pump-storage Dams.    

 

I was introduced to Haridwar, Rishikesh, Dehradun, Mussoorie in 2006 by my dear friend.

 

My first blog when I was moderating few Human Rights Groups was that – 'Uttarkhand is Developing Unsafe Tourism Infrastructure, Mussoorie is too congested, has only one narrow access road,-- we spend the money for 'Samosa and Jalebi' snacks and similar desi foods' and the need to develop Tourism Infrastructure along entire Himalayas.

 

When Nepal PM Prachanda visited India – 'I delivered a Note to him Regarding 80,000 MW Hydro Power Development in Nepal, India to buy all surplus power to pay for the Cost of Construction, Flood Protection, Lake Tourism, Irrigation in Nepal & India, Bangladesh, Clean Pollution Free Drinking supply were to be additional benefits.'

Anand Sharma,
"The total results I have to show for my efforts is big Zero, yawns and ridicule."
Well that what you deserve for your lies. Who the hell do you think you are to  allow hundreds of millions of them (Muslims) to live with us and allow to expand through unfair practices."
What about your practices caste discrimination, sati and others which were worse than what the Muslims did?
You are speaking about polygamy in Islam which killed millions of Dalits and widows?. How about Polyandry in UP and Nepal where one woman marries many men? Why dont you put that right before you go putting right Muslim practices of polyandry?
You are speaking all the time about the Muslim attrocities and fabricating lies to prove your point. 
Here is something frrom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maratha_Empire according to which "During their occupation of western Bengal, the Marathas perpetrated atrocities against the local population.[42] The Maratha atrocities were recorded by both Bengali and European sources, which reported that the Marathas demanded payments, and tortured and killed anyone who couldn't pay. Dutch sources estimate a total of 400,000 people in Bengal were killed by the Marathas. According to Bengali sources, the atrocities led to much of the local population opposing the Marathas and developing support for the Nawabs." 
In contrast the Portugese killed just 56 people over a period or 12 years during the Goan inquisition. But you ignore the 400000 Hindus killed by the Marathas and highlight the 56 killed by the Portuguesse. You deserve a Nobel prize for your sense of justice.
What do you have to say about it.
The Sikhs conquered Kashmir and the taxes they levied were so heavy that thousands fled Kashmir.
What do you have to say about it?
There are so many attrocities committed by Hindus against Hindus and you turn a blind eye to all that and focus only on what Muslims did to you and fabricate lies to prove your lies.
Shame on you.

Suresh Ji,

Very eye-opening article, even though all of us feel a chill recounting all the horrors from Muslims over the centuries and counting. 

We have the toughest balancing act in human history. Muslims took away one third of our thousands of years old country with very horrific violence. Despite this, we have been very nice to them, allowing hundreds of millions of them to live with us and allow to expand through unfair practices.

Frankly, we are a lifeless dud. The only reason we got our independence after 800 years was because the second world war made Britain and France so weak that they could no longer hold on to their colonies. We copied British laws, constitution etc. line by line and the independent country of India was born.

The reason I am so bitter is that I have spent all my life, lot of time, energy and money, preaching that a simple, fair step should be taken like ban Polygamy to prevent unfair expansion of Muslims in India. I have been a member of the Overseas Friends of BJP USA since early 90's and its coordinator for my city. I am probably the only one, flying at my own expense all over US to its annual meetings and deliver keynote addresses on the subject. I met with Lal Krishna Advani Ji personally in 90's who promised us that they will ban polygamy as soon as they come to power.

The total results I have to show for my efforts is big Zero, yawns and ridicule.

My thought is that we have to be extremely alert and ban all their unfair practices, ban polygamy, control their politically motivated large families.

Declaring Hindu Rastriya is impractical and will cause many more problems than it will solve. 

Thanks and regards,

Governance of any country is based on the Constitution of that  country. BJP/NDA can not deviate from the Constitution of India. Amendment of the Constitution is not that easy. Even BJP manifesto no where says about Hindu Rashtra in Indai. Strengthening Hindu Dharma is a social subject and not a poltical subject in India. Before any social thought of Hindu Rashtra, we need to strengthen Hindu Dharma by reviving Vedas truthfully. In the absence of Vedas Hindus are getting divided into sub religions, sects, cults, gurudom and formimg close societies. I find there are many Hindus who are not keen to revive Vedas.then how do we form Hindu Rashra?
There should be something common for Hindu Rashra even as a social thought.
Our Constitution does not prohibit strngthening of any religion/Dharma but there is no move any where to strengthen Hindu Dharma and merge Hindu close societies in to one Hindu Dharma Open Society. Our Constituion does not prohibit merging of Hindu close societies into one Hindu Open Society. I do not know any Social Hindu Dharma group is pursuing this matter.. We need not bouther BJP/NDA being political parties on this subject. For them governance is for Citizens of India and not for any religion of India.

The first thing is you have to publish your manifesto - What 
is your idea of a Hindu rashtra, what is the social contract
offered to all its constituents, who falls out of the definition
of Hindu etc.  People are afraid that if they opt for a Hindu 
rashtra, untouchables will get a raw deal.  So first you have
to clear all your positions including your political philosophy,
economic ideology, aims where you want to take the society etc.

[www.keralites.net] Four Ayurvedic Herbs and One Integrated Oil That Relieve Arthritis Better Than Medication

Four Ayurvedic Herbs and One Integrated Oil That Relieve Arthritis Better Than Medication

The single most prescribed drugs in the world are for pain. Popular anti-inflammatory drugs increase the risk of heart attack and cardiovascular disease. However, natural equivalents used in Ayurvedic medicine are not only more effective and reducing long-term pain, but they carry no high-risk side effects. 
Your poor joints are stiff, inflamed and achy from osteoarthritis--but the medications that reduce your pain also can have serious side effects, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, liver and kidney damage, and increased risk for heart attack and stroke.
Consider the Ayurvedic approach to osteoarthritis treatment, which relies on natural herbs and spices to bring relief. There are no dramatic side-effects and the potential reduction in pain can be as high as 90%, blocking enzymes that produce inflammation. 

Mahanarayan Oil - One Amazing Oil

Mahanarayan Oil is an ancient Ayurvedic recipe that delivers powerful muscle and joint targeting herbs. A nourishing and strengthening oil with rejuvenating and analgesic qualities, it is used to soothe arthritis, sore muscles and tendons and prevents over-use damage. In Ayurvedic terms, Mahanarayan Oil is particularly good for supporting rejuvenation of joints affected by wear and tear, joint space narrowing, and synovial fluid dehydration.

The oil can be incorporated into treatment by applying locally to areas where the client is experiencing physical discomfort. It may also be diluted with base oil and used in Deep Tissue Massage. 

Four Herbs That Destroy Arthritis Pain 

Nancy Lonsdorf, MD, author of The Ageless Woman: Natural Health and Beauty After recommends four specific herbs effective in treating arthritis.
The following four Ayurvedic arthritis remedies have been used in ancient Indian medicines and in cooking for more than 5,000 years. And they really work--a study presented at a meeting of the American College of Rheumatology showed a combination herbal Ayurvedic therapy to be as effective in treating knee osteoarthritis as the commonly prescribed medication celecoxib (Celebrex).
1) Boswellia (Indian frankincense). This comes from the resin of theBoswellia serrata plant. It works by blocking an enzyme involved in the formation of leukotrienes, chemicals that trigger inflammation. Note:Boswellia may cause a reaction in people who are allergic to ragweed, and it can irritate the gastrointestinal tract (especially if taken alone rather than in a balanced combination formula as traditionally used) .
2) Turmeric. The active ingredient in this spice, curcumin, interferes with three important inflammation-producing enzymes--so it disrupts the inflammatory process at three different stages, said Dr. Lonsdorf. Turmeric also may provide some protection against the damage that pain-relieving medications can do to the gastrointestinal tract. Curcumin has been found to actually outperform pharmaceuticals while preventing disease.. Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds, including sixdifferent COX-2-inhibitors (the COX-2 enzyme promotes pain, swelling and inflammation; inhibitors selectively block that enzyme). The component in turmeric most often cited for its healthful effects - is a multifaceted anti-inflammatory agent, and studies of the efficacy of curcumin have demonstrated positive changes in arthritic symptoms.
3) Ginger. Ginger is one of the best pain killers in the world having analgesic properties like the popular ibuprofen, only better. It contains a quartet, gingerols, paradols, shogaols, and zingerone which are active ingredients to reduce pain. Ginger reduces pain-causing prostaglandin levels in the body. A study by researchers found that when people who were suffering from arthritis pain were given ginger, they all experienced improvement. Various studies have demonstrated ginger's ability to reduce pain and inflammation by interfering with inflammatory enzymes.Bonus: Ginger also aids digestion. Why should that matter? Because according to Ayurvedic principals, poor digestion is a primary trigger for arthritis. Dr. Lonsdorf explained, "When we eat improper foods or our digestion is weak, food is not broken down into small molecules, so larger-than-normal molecules get absorbed into the bloodstream. These biochemical impurities circulate, eventually getting localized in a tissue and initiating swelling. When the affected tissue is a joint, the result is arthritis."
Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha or Indian winter cherry is considered one of the most important herbs in ayurvedic system of medicines. Because of its vast area of application, ayurvedic physicians have used it extensively in curing people from their ailments. It works in suppressing arthritis pain and any pain for that matter. It possesses this property due to its natural potency, which helps in eradicating pain Due to its properties it has gained lots of respect in the eyes of herbal healers. Lab studies suggest that it has anti-inflammatory properties that protect against cartilage damage. In addition, animal studies provide evidence that the herb combats stress. Dr. Lonsdorf explained, "When we are stressed, the hormones cortisol and epinephrine cause a breakdown of various body tissues. Ashwagandha helps alleviate the damaging effects of stress by restoring the proper hormonal balance to the nervous system, which in turn strengthens the immune system and further reduces inflammation."Caution: Since Ashwagandha makes your immune system more active, it is not appropriate for people who have an autoimmune disorder, including rheumatoid arthritis.

USING AYURVEDIC HERBS

Ayurvedic herbal products are available in health-food stores and online. For maximum convenience and effect, Dr. Lonsdorf recommended that osteoarthritis patients take an herbal supplement that combines several of the herbs and spices listed above as well as other natural ingredients that further support joint and bone health. These products may not contain turmeric, so Dr. Lonsdorf suggested using the spice liberally in the kitchen. "Turmeric added to food is more important than in a formula because you can get much a greater quantity that way. I recommend adding turmeric to every meal and cooking it into each dish, even if only in small amounts, for its cumulative anti-inflammatory and antioxidant protection," she said.
Important: According to a Boston University study, some commercial Ayurvedic herbal remedies contain lead, mercury and/or arsenic in amounts exceeding regulatory standards. Dr. Lonsdorf endorses Maharishi Ayurveda (www..mapi.com), a company that has been in business for nearly 30 years. If you are interested in a different brand, to guard against contamination, Dr. Lonsdorf suggested, "Contact the seller to make sure the company tests every batch in the US for heavy metals, as well as for parasites and fungus."
To make sure that the specific ingredients are safe and appropriate for you and to get dosage recommendations, consult a physician who is knowledgeable about Ayurvedic medicine. To find such a practitioner, visit the Web site of the Light on Ayurveda Education Foundation.
Try this Ayurvedic approach for eight weeks to see whether these remedies relieve your osteoarthritis symptoms. If they do, Dr. Lonsdorf said that you can continue to take them indefinitely, reducing to the lowest dose that maintains your improvement. 

Dr. Marianna Pochelli is a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine specializing in the treatment of disease through superfoods and herbal strategies. She actively promotes detoxification, colon cleansing, and a vegetarian lifestyle using living foods as a platform to health.
