  • But for Hindus, flesh does not matter….it has to be cremated and the bones cast in rivers….one has to move on….in fact, in rituals, after three generations even the names are not remembered….I am speaking strictly traditionally….lot has changed over centuries….but generally the rituals are geared to forget and move on….while constantly reassuring the dead that all attempts are being made to ensure their rebirth by producing more children…….is that the reason why Indian has such a vast population?
  • This is a traditional Indian thali…all things served simultaneously….in a circular pattern…you can customize your own meal…sweet, sour, spicy, crunchy, mushy…as you wish….there are rules but different rules….you eat with your hand, your right hand, never left hand….your pray before the meal…not to God but to the food which is God….does this have roots in the circular worldview?
  • For an Alexander, the denominator of his life is one. One life. So what he achieves in life matters. For a gymnosophist, the denominator of his life is infinity. No matter what one does, it amounts to nothing. So the point of life is not to achieve but to introspect. Who is right? Who is good? Must one obey? Must one rebel? Is either ok? Is neither ok? The answer depends on what you believe in.
