Ram Setu Affidavit : Heads roll !

15 09 2007

Two senior officials of the ASI have been suspended in connection with the Ram Setu affidavit blunder that I posted about earlier this week. More heads are likely to roll for the drama that has put the UPA government in trouble.Union Minister for Culture Ambika Soni has ordered an inquiry and will meet Congress President Sonia Gandhi to explain the facts of the case. Her ministry had made statements in the affidavit questioning the existence of Lord Ram and the Ramayana.

According to sources, Ambika Soni had asked for some changes to be made in the affidavit before it was submitted to the Supreme Court. The two ASI officials have been suspended for not making those changes.

On Friday, the government withdrew its affidavits and told the Supreme Court it would like to review the Sethusamudram project so that the Ram Setu will not be disturbed.

Ram Setu : Indian Government to re-examine Sethusamudram

14 09 2007


ram.jpgThe government will re-examine the Sethusamudram project so that the Ram Setu is not disturbed and has been given three months by the Supreme Court to do so. The government has also withdrawn a controversial affidavit that said there is no historical proof of Lord Ram’s existence.

The affidavit says: ”The government has total respect for all religions and Hinduism in particular in the context of present case. The government is alive and conscious of religious sensibilities, including the unique ancient and holy text of Ramayana having regards to public sentiments.”


The Centre said in a fresh affidavit that it never meant to cast aspersions on any faith.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balkrishnan, which allowed the Centre to withdraw the affidavits, said that the August 31 interim order putting on hold the construction in Rama Setu area will continue.

The Court in its interim order had allowed the dredging activity. It posted the matter for hearing in the first week of January, 2008.

Indian Government blunders with affidavit regarding Ram Setu

13 09 2007

Finally our beloved Government have done themselves in by making a statement regarding the Ramayana.

The controversy has now reached the level of the office of the Prime Minister who was contacted by the leaders of the opposition party to protest against the government affidavit before the Supreme Court saying epics were not historical records that could prove the existence of Lord Ram.

The government has told the apex court in an affidavit filed Monday 10th September : The Valmiki Ramayana, the Ramcharitmanas by Tulsidas and other mythological texts, which admittedly form an ancient part of Indian literature, cannot be said to be historical records to incontrovertibly prove the existence of the characters or the occurrence of the events depicted therein.

This affidavit was in response to a query whether the Ram Sethu, geographically known as Adam’s Bridge, could be declared a protected monument.

The affidavit can be considered nothing short of blasphemous and an insult to the generations of Hindu’s and people in India who have grown up with the Ramayana.

In a letter written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, objecting to the content of the affidavit, the opposition leader has said – Ramayana is not only a religious epic but also a national heritage and part of the culture of this country.

Psychedelic renaissance?

19 04 2007


If we are to believe the words of Timothy Leary, the verdict is that psychedelics are indeed beneficial to us humans.

The elite of American science, such as the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Harvard, have been conducting what is thought to be its first research into therapeutic uses of psychedelics (in this case, Ecstasy) since the university fired Timothy Leary in 1963. Why the sudden urge to pry open the doors of perception again considering the first time was not really a smashing success!

Rocky Balboa charged for carrying HGH/AAS

25 12 2006

The legendary Rocky Balboa was intercepted by Australian customs for carrying close to 46 vials of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) and Jintropin(form of test). His failure to declare the “stuff” even though he cas a valid prescription is going to cause some serious drama.

Australian laws are pretty harsh when it comes to certain things. Bodybuilders have a tough time with normal supplements too. I little birdy tells me that Vit.C might be banned shortly ūüėČ

Jeanie Rae

A BREAST cancer victim has made medical history as the first person in Scotland to be prescribed cannabis as a treatment for chronic pain.

Former nurse Jeanie Rae, 57, has been taking a purified form of the controversial drug to treat the agonising nerve damage in her right arm caused by an operation and radiotherapy to beat her cancer.


The pain left her virtually imprisoned in her home in Balfron, Stirlingshire, for nearly four years because she could not bare even the lightest touch.
