Of the non-issues

In respect to a lively group discussion on Indian mythological characters, I just could not resist airing how gross it was:

Its time to introspect once again. Time to question the canons that established and sustained the ruling classes, via the use of extremely discriminatory organized religions of the world (Hinduism is one of the largest, of course).

Religions provide all the answers, I guess, from what we are discussing. Just wondering if we are asking the right questions?

For a change, we have another four years of George Bush coming to power. How will Orissa be affected?

And for a quoter-reversal: in context, from Krishna to Marx
‘Philosophers have only interpreted the world. its time to change it…”
