Whenever there is talk of 'Kashmir problem', why do our senile politicians get a collective amnesia about Hindu's in Kashmir who were ethnically cleansed. Our pyare chacha Nehru opened doors for Tibetans, who suffered the same fate but tragically Nehru and his descendants (Gandhi) did not even acknowledge about the fate of Kashmiri Hindu's in our own backyard. Grrrrr.....
Our politicians will talk to multiple Islamic jihadi organizations but atleast acknowledge the plight of Kashmiri Hindu's. Amidst this gloomy scene, please welcome and support the cause of Kashmiri Pandits who have started this courageous initiative.

Sheikh, in his confession to the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), said he attended a programme organised by the banned SIMI in May 2001 at Pune, where he was told about atrocities on Muslims during the 2002 sectarian violence in GujaratSheikh in 2001 knew about the yet-to-happen 2002 Gujarat turmoil. WOW! I want this Islamic jihadi invention (first of its kind) for time gazing.
Now pay attention, Sheikh Chillie: I'm not going to say this 10,000 times. Connecting terrorist attack to a motive is quite old in playing the leftist 'I am a victim' game. Will Mahmud Ghazni's Somnath temple plunder qualify as reason for Babri Temple removal if we consider your terrorism-for-riots reasoning? Wotsay!

I thought drugs and steroids (heroin is no drug, it's bizzness) were banned in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Pakistani 's are uber-muslims and the leading light of muslim Ummah. How dare they, islamic nookular bum and Generally uptight Musharraf notwithstanding!
But this was not the first time and this will, I am sure, not be the last. There was another 'drug-induced own3d' moment when during the 1992-93 tour of West Indies, Pakistani players Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Mushtaq Ahmed and Aqib Javed were frogmarched by the cops from the beach to the Police Station. They were detained and then released on bail for marijuana possession.

First headsup was D.N. Jha (Indian in the US text row resolved by Indian) linking up with Michael Witzel and Friends of South Asia.
Another came from page 2 of the article
Giving a hint of the Aryan origin debate in India, Jha asked the court not to fall for the "indigenous Aryan" claim since it has led to "demonisation of Muslims and Christians as foreigners and to the near denial of the contributions of non-Hindus to Indian culturegot me thinking whether this guy (DN Jha) resolved the text row or is he helping the Marxist - Friends of South Asia (FOSA) peddle the Aryan Invasion Theory in the garb of 'secularism'? While checking on D.N. Jha's columns' on Outlook India , he comes out as an Useful Idiot.
most dangerous Useful Idiot is the “Politically Correct.” He is the master practitioner of euphemism, hedging, doubletalk, and outright deception.
Hindu American Foundation (HAF) response to the ToI article.
One cannot help but feel dissappointed with Times of India which has made a habit of distorting facts to suit their agenda. Would the ToI respond? I doubt it.D.N. Jha did file an affidavit as part of an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief filed by the self-proclaimed Marxist-communist group, “Friends of South Asia” (FOSA). However, Judge Partick Marlette of the California Superior Court rejected the brief outright, as it lacked merit and relevance.
An e-mail complaint to the event organizers on the day the photo was published elicited a simple, speedy and to the point response.

Scientists Collide with Linguists to Assert Indigenous origin of Indian Civilization
Comprehensive population genetics data along with archeological and astronomical evidence presented at June 23-25, 2006 conference in Dartmouth, MA, overwhelmingly concluded that Indian civilization and its human population is indigenous.
In fact, the original people and culture within the Indian Subcontinent may even be a likely pool for the genetic, linguistic, and cultural origin of the most rest of the world, particularly Europe and Asia.
Leading evidences come from population genetics, which were presented by two leading researchers in the field, Dr. V. K. Kashyap, National Institute of Biologicals, India, and Dr. Peter Underhill of Stanford University in California. Their results generally contradict the notion Aryan invasion/migration theory for the origin of Indian civilization.
Underhill concluded "the spatial frequency distributions of both L1 frequency and variance levels show a spreading pattern emanating from India", referring to a Y chromosome marker. He, however, put several caveats before interpreting genetic data, including "Y-ancestry may not always reflect the ancestry of the rest of the genome"
Dr. Kashyap, on the other hand, with the most comprehensive set of genetic data was quite emphatic in his assertion that there is "no clear genetic evidence for an intrusion of Indo-Aryan people into India, [and] establishment of caste system and gene flow."
Michael Witzel, a Harvard linguist, who is known to lead the idea of Aryan Invasion/migration/influx theory in more recent times, continued to question genetic evidence on the basis that it does not provide the time resolution to explain events that may have been involved in Aryan presence in India.
Dr. Kashyap's reply was that even though the time resolution needs further work, the fact that there are clear and distinct differences in the gene pools of Indian population and those of Central Asian and European groups, the evidence nevertheless negates any Aryan invasion or migration into Indian Subcontinent.
Witzel though refused to present his own data and evidence for his theories despite being invited to do so was nevertheless present in the conference and raised many questions. Some of his commentaries questioning the credibility of scholars evoked sharp responses from other participants.
Rig Veda has been dated to 1,500 BC by those who use linguistics to claim its origin Aryans coming out of Central Asia and Europe. Archaeologist B.B. Lal and scientist and historian N.S. Rajaram disagreed with the position of linguists, in particular Witzel who claimed literary and linguistic evidence for the non-Indian origin of the Vedic civilization.
Dr. Narahari Achar, a physicist from University of Memphis clearly showed with astronomical analysis that the Mahabharata war in 3,067 BC, thus poking a major hole in the outside Aryan origin of Vedic people.
Interestingly, Witzel stated, for the first time to many in the audience, that he and his colleagues no longer subscribe to Aryan invasion theory.
Dr. Bal Ram Singh, Director, Center for Indic Studies at UMass Dartmouth, which organized the conference was appalled at the level of visceral feelings Witzel holds against some of the scholars in the field, but felt satisfied with the overall outcome of the conference.
"I am glad to see people who have been scholarly shooting at each other for about a decade are finally in one room, this is a progress", said Singh.
The conference was able to bring together in one room for the first time experts from genetics, archeology, physics, linguistics, anthropology, history, and philosophy. A proceedings of the conference is expected to come out soon, detailing various arguments on the origin of Indian civilization.
Damn you Witzel weasel, you have single handedly stolen the raison d' etre of our (pseudo)Indian communist brigade . Skepticism is healthy, but apply it equally. To both sides. Don't worry, eat curry.

If you thought that Sitara was hi-tech paki style, wait for the next one.
The car below is "ALF", it is a bloody "LAF".
KARACHI: Verena Grafin Von Roedern, Consul General of Germany in Karachi and Zafar Iqbal, President Small and Medium Enterprise Alliance (SAMEA) and others inspecting "Alf" A purely Pakistan-made vehicle.
According to the manufacturers, this pakistani car has star wars technology.
Well I think it is a 'Vikram' put on four wheels.
If you already have high blood pressure, take your medication before going on this site to see more variants of 'Sitara'...
p.s. Sitara makers have the gall to offer this in an open top condition. As it is Sitara is butt naked, what more could be taken off...for answers...go to the above link, just dont forget to pop the pill.

You must use extra padding for the headstand, so use a folded blanket or some extra foam on top of your yoga mat. Don't use a pillow, since it's too soft.
If you don't feet very confident about going straight into the headstand, try stage 1 first. Once you are confident with stage 1, you can go on to stage 2, which is the standard headstand.
If you wish to try it on your own, place a pillow lengthwise behind your head, in case you fall over backwards.
Stage 1 (For Beginners)
- Put your yoga mat into a comer, kneel down in front of it and place your interlocked fingers in the comer close to the walls.
- Put your head into the hollow of the palms, rise off the knees and take a step or two towards the comer.
- Lift one leg and place it in the comer against the wall. If you are a little unsure, ask a friend to hold the leg and put it in the corner. Now, just kick the other leg up. Stay there for about 15 seconds, trying to remain relaxed.
- To come out of the headstand, just lower one leg at a time. Again, if you feel unsure, ask your friend to hold one of your legs while you lower the other.
Start off in the headstand for about 15 seconds. Increase the time by 15 seconds every week until you are doing three minutes.
Stage 2 (The Standard Headstand)
- Kneel down on your yoga mat. Interlock the fingers of your hands and place them and your forearms on the extra padding on the yoga mat. Keep the elbows fairly close together.
- Place the back of your head into the hollow of the palms (not on the palms or fingers). Rise up off your knees and take a step or two towards your head.
- Inhale, and slowly raise the legs until they are vertical. Keep your back straight and try to relax. Breathe slowly and deeply from the abdomen.
- Concentrate on the brain or the pineal gland between the eyebrows.
- To come down, bend your knees and lower one leg and then the other. As for the beginners' stage, start off in the headstand for about 15 seconds and increase the time by 15 seconds every week, until you are doing three minutes.
- The headstand increases circulation to the brain, which causes improved brain function (intelligence and memory) and increased vitality and confidence.
- It improves many ailments, such as nervousness, tension, fatigue, sleeplessness, dullness, fear, poor blood circulation, bad memory, asthma, headaches, constipation, congested throat, liver or spleen, for female disorders, the initial stages of eye and nose troubles, and general lack of energy, vitality or self confidence.
- It stimulates four of the most important endocrine glands - the pituitary, the pineal, the thyroid, and the parathyroid glands that are responsible for our very existence, for they keep the body mechanism in good working order. Pituitary gland is called the master gland of the body. As a consequence, the practice of the headstand helps us to get relief from many of our troubles, physical as well as mental, or to prevent them. It has a very beneficial effect on the whole body.
- It promotes hair growth by increasing circulation to the scalp.
- It helps to put the spine into correct alignment.
- It restores the position of vital organs by reversing gravity.
- The quality of sleep is improved. Poor sleep is often due to an excess of nerve impulses from the reticular formation to the cerebral cortex in the brain. The headstand causes an increase in circulation to the neck, which stimulates the baroreceptors in the neck. This calms the reticular formation down, causing reduced nerve impulses to the cerebral cortex. This results in a peaceful, deep steep.
Because of the many benefits of the headstand, the yogis often refer to it as the 'king of the asanas'.
Do the headstand for fifteen seconds at first, adding fifteen more per week. The maximum time for it should not be more than twelve minutes, if it is done in conjunction with other exercises.
- Don't do the headstand if you have high or low blood pressure. First get your blood pressure normal by natural means such as good nutrition, aerobic exercise and the other asanas. Even just giving up salt and taking garlic daily (tablets or in cooking) will cause a substantial reduction in your blood pressure.
- Atherosclerosis (blocked blood vessels) and any history of strokes are also contraindications to doing the headstand. You must improve your circulatory system first, before attempting it.
- If you have any serious eye diseases, ask your eye specialist's advice about doing the headstand.
- Avoid this exercise if you are suffering from constipation, when the stool is excessively dry, if you have pus in your ears, if you are suffering from chronic nasal catarrh, or from very weak eye capillaries. Avoid this exercise if you have an organically defective pituitary, pineal or thyroid gland.
- If you suffer from a neck injury or advanced arthritis in your neck, again you must improve your neck condition first. See your chiropractor, follow the nutritional principles in this book and do the other asanas to improve your neck. If you have a serious neck condition and you wish to get the benefits of the headstand, you can purchase an inversion apparatus, which gives you all the benefits without compression of the neck. In fact, this equipment produces traction of your neck, so your neck condition will actually improve.
Don't let any minor neck pain stop you from doing the headstand, since most of the weight of the body is actually supported by the forearms. There is very little pressure on the head and therefore very minimal compression of the neck.Works wonders 4 me.

The War in Pakistan: Shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, President Bush famously declared that other countries must choose between supporting the United States and supporting terrorism, and that those that harbored al Qaeda would be treated as the enemy. In the years since, he has refrained from applying that tough principle in practice — which is lucky for Pakistan’s president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Ever since the war on terrorism began, this meretricious military ruler has tried to be counted as a U.S. ally while avoiding an all-out campaign against the Islamic extremists in his country, who almost surely include Osama bin Laden and his top deputies. Despite mounting costs in American lives and resources, he has gotten away with it.
Gen. Musharraf and his aides, such as Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, boast that Pakistan has arrested hundreds of al Qaeda militants and deployed tens of thousands of troops in the border region near Afghanistan. Yet Gen. Musharraf has never directed his forces against the Pashtun Taliban militants who use Pakistan as a base to wage war against American and Afghan forces across the border. He has never dismantled the Islamic extremist groups that carry out terrorist attacks against India. He has never cleaned up the Islamic madrassas that serve as a breeding ground for suicide bombers. He has pardoned and protected the greatest criminal proliferator of nuclear weapons technology in history, A.Q. Khan, who aided Libya, North Korea and Iran. And he has broken promises to give up his military office or return Pakistan to democracy…
In keeping with his double game, Gen. Musharraf’s government publicly criticized the latest attack even though his intelligence service reportedly cooperated with it. Now he and Mr. Aziz, who met with Mr. Bush yesterday, are saying U.S. forces should carry out no more such attacks without Pakistani agreement. We’ll assume that’s more of their bluster. Even if it is not, Mr. Bush should ignore it. Gen. Musharraf perhaps cannot be forced to side decisively with the United States against the terrorists, as the administration once hoped — though much more could be done to raise the price of his feckless cooperation. But Mr. Bush must take every available measure to eliminate the al Qaeda and Taliban operations in Pakistan. If targets can be located, they should be attacked — with or without Gen. Musharraf’s cooperation.
Oh boy! WaPo will be banned in Pukistan. People of Pukistan should be asking -
"I think we've got to move away from this hysterical and rather patronising idea that we have got to treat the Muslim religion with kid gloves and not subject it to all the same rough and tumble that we subject other faiths to." -- UK Member of Parliament
