Mythology needs to be differentiated from other types of stories: legends (which are political) and fables (which have moral agenda). Mythology establishes worldviews & hegemony. Rational secularism is based on myth of Justice & Equality of Islam/Christianity, for example.

[QT: “EPIC” TECH] 1/93 The story of Ramayana has always captured India’s imagination. So it’s only natural that it’d capture mine sometimes. So I just binged on a 3-episode series on the subject by one of India’s most imaginative storytellers, Amish Tripathi.

So much poverty in the West. Many NRI from USA and UK are coming back to India to become toolkit trolls. That's how bad it is.

Trollers must be forgiven to pushing the "Out of India Theory" ... the are paid Rs. 2/- per tweet, said one jobless Whatsapp expert of language, archeology and genetics. I felt sad.

South Asian Islamicate manuscripts will frequently have “yā kabīkaj” inscribed on their first page. Kabīkaj was the king of the cockroaches. It was hoped that, out of respect for their king, cockroaches would spare the book.

How many Hindi speaking Rajput/Mughal fans would know about the Jain Kannadiga poet-warrior king Amoghavarsha, whose peaceful rule of over 60 years, won praise of even Arab travellers? Except during UPSC exam preparation maybe🤣🤣🤣🤣

I was on the IMDb page for an upcoming Ranbir Kapoor movie Animal. In the cast details, I found a name I didn’t recognize. Finding out about this guy led me to the world of how young Indian men from small towns are gaming the system to manufacture their fake online clout 👇

Amazing how young men of India, brainwashed by Hindutva nonsense, equate themselves with a band of Aryan fathers, and not Harappan/Munda mothers, or those grandparents who came to India from Africa 50,000 years ago....
Interesting thread .. after all it seems even Aryans came to India and we’re not native 🤔

Civilisation is about exchange = giving and receiving = indicating trade of goods, services, and even ideas. Nationalists and Supremacists, think that "civilisation" is about DOMINATION and PURITY.

Both RW and LW groups keep reminding you about your religion and caste and gender and sexuality. They are so invested in these constructs.
