Satyadarshni - The irony begins in the name of this crappy shit

Here is a wonderful mail I received from a friend recently... Just read it, and let me know if it is not natural to get angry, frustrated, irritated, annoyed, or just old fashioned "pissed off" when you read crap (excuse me) like what is being spread by lousy, third grade books like Satyadarshini (what an ironic name...

What Baba means by the above statement is that, in life, you cannot simply discard anything without even considering it for a moment. I have seen several people who argue with this attitude. Their arguments are never complete. For example, there was a person who once told me that a certain organisation is known to steal credit from people who do the work... Now, this may or may not be true, one never knows, unless they have gone through this personally (for, it's very easy to malign someone). However, when I told this to my friend, he totally opposed it, with expressions which made it appear to me like even thinking it for a moment is a totaly sin. This kind of thinking is not good - For, though we like to walk around with the belief in the line - "Innocent until pro…

NGOs and Altruism

Disclaimer:At the very out set of this entry, I would like to make it very clear that I do not intend to (tangentially even) imply any part of this material towards any existing or non existing organisation, person or group of people. People reading this entry should do so in a completely unbiased manner.

I noticed that there a lot of people with good hearts, who want to do something for the people who are not so fortunate as themselves. So, people who say "There is no good left in this kali yuga" have another thing coming. There are a lot of people who are interested in doing something good - They want to channelise their energy and efforts towards the upliftment of the society, in some way or the other.

So, they do things - some of them do it as individuals, and othe…
