शिक्षा बचाओ -- Shiksha Bachao

"The child is taken to school, and the first thing he learns is that his father is a fool, the second thing that his grandfather is a lunatic, the third thing that all his teachers are hypocrites, the fourth that all the sacred books are lies. By the time he is 16, he is a mass of negation -- lifeless and boneless." -- Swami Vivekananda

Indian Astrology!

On page 27 (of history book for class 7), Indian Astrology is termed as ignorant and superstitios ideas.

While the western world is awakening to the truth of ancient indian wisdom, our own so-called scholars languish in their raj-mentality. The same sages who wrote the vedas and "old" puranas, developed the constantly proven sciences of Yoga and Pranayama. In every new research that is published in the west these days, there is always a reference to the two sciences as being beneficial. Every fitness guru of the west is racing to add a "power yoga" cassette to their line-up. The Pranayama is the promoted as the Breath of Life. Popular magazines carry interview with celebrities, who describe how they have gained in life after adapting to vegetarian life style and a yoga regimen in their lives. While the rest of the world will soak the wisdom and reap the benefits, our own psuedo historians will condemn them as misguided and directionless. I will say, THEIR LOSS. But they certainly should not be allowed to pass on their bankrupt ideas to young impressionable minds of school children.
