Feedback from friends

I asked few of my friends - the term is much abused and used loosely these days, I mean real friends, IIT times etc. - to comment on the blog.

When I ask friends, the idea is to get a honest-to-goodness critique.

One of them gave this feedback:
I read the blogpost.

Bahut agenda hai Blog mein - which itself is not a problem but you are using sweeping and iota logic like Sonia Gandhi = Christian = Missionary Activity.

...............you have to, at a minimum, use less rhetoric and logical sweep, and stay more mathematical..

Typical IITian comment. But you get what he means.

I would much appreciate comments from readers about what works in my blog and what doesn't. I write partly स्वांत सुखाय (for my own pleasure) but partly it is to move forward in my goal of
प्रभो शक्तिमन् हिन्दुराष्ट्राङ्गभूता

and for

परं वैभवं नेतुमेतत् स्वराष्ट्रं
the goal is establishment of Glorious, Strong, Hindu Rashtra.

The words are the tools. I am a beginner and a learner. Please give me feedback, o learned reader.

Tell me what works and what doesn't.

What would you like to be there. What you would rather not have.

  1. Clarify your goal.

    For instance, if you want a "meeting place" for like-minded people to share notes, then you are on the right track.

    HOWEVER, If you want to change MEDIA/WORLD OPINION and BRING NEW PEOPLE in your flock, then YOU ARE WAY OFF THE MARK.

    For THAT, you might want to build credibility by presenting facts with thorough research. For instance, francois gautier, Arun Shourie and so on...

    Also, you might want to potray Hinduism correctly. Hinduism is ALL-INCLUSIVE and not anti-other-religion. If Brahma is the creator, he made muslims and christians as well.

    Of course, You do want to DEAL WITH THE BAD LOT in the Muslims (Jehadis), Christians (Covert Conversions).

    But, a "true" hindu solution (unlike jingoistic jehadi like noises OR worse - you yourself becoming a Bleeding Heart Hindu) would have elements like INSPIRING vibhishans in the BAD LOT CAMP.

    There are PEOPLE in muslims communities (even offshoots like sufism) who want to get rid of jehadis MORE THAN YOU. The average Global Muslim is insecure.

    There would be may be a million christians or many more who have already adopted partially or wholly Hindu-based spirituality.

    Can YOU MAKE HINDUISM A UNIFYING FORCE?

    Can YOU CONTRIBUTE to making available HINDUISM as the most attractive "WAY-OF-LIFE" THAT ISLAM and CHRISTIANITY literally disapper. For instance, Sri Sri Ravishankar's (SSR) programs are very very popular in middle-east and all-over-the-world. In those regions, SSR does not emphasise on the word "Hindu". He presents "Our Philosophy" - if you follow those things THEN you have THAT element of hinduism in you.

    Christianity is already dead - thats why they are desperately converting poor people.

    Islam has NO strength on its own - that is what they are using force.

    My suggestion would be, you yourself UNDERSTAND HINDUISM AUTHENTICALLY, Celebrate it, Spread it!
