Ganesh was just one elephant head on one human body.

What about those multiple hands on Kali/Durga?

Those ancient Indian plastic surgeons must have been busy with that one for awhile.

I am surprised that he did not mention Guru Dronacharya, who was allegedly the first test tube baby ever, or that the much feared Brahmastra that was used in the Mahabharata war was supposedly a H-bomb, or that Rama returned from Lanka by air in one of Ravana's aeroplanes.

This is the problem with Indian mythology. A lot of it is scientifically realizable, but there is simply no evidence, apart from stories, that such a high level of scientific advancement actually existed in India in those days.

But I bet Hanuman's on-time performance was better than anything Air India achieved over the past 30 years.

I am surprised that the Hindu bigots aren't taking offence to what Modi said about Ganesha.

According to the scriptures, Ganesha was a God created by Parvati, and the elephant head was attached to his body by Shiva himself. How can anyone, particularly a card carrying Hindu like Modi, commit the blasphemy of attributing Ganesha to an ordinary cosmetic surgeon?

Looks like these types don't even know the scriptures they swear upon. How pathetic!

Personally I find all these religious tomes to be perfect works of fiction - no matter the religion. We should not try and get carried away into mapping those stories to today's technology, it has really no relevance.

He is probably too busy, sitting on his charpoy with the kaalnirnay on his lap, watching endless re-runs of Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani dubbed in Marathi.

Wink Wink Very Happy

Hullo ! ..not quite Dr Kotnis ki Amar Kahani, but I did see Dr Prakash Amte (Marathi movie) over Diwali. And instantly realized how fake all this NGO/activism is. The real action is amongst the people. This gentleman, son of his even more illustrious father (Baba Amte), has been given Padma Shree- on par with a Saif ali Khan or a Rekha. That's the crying shame of this nation.
Those who are unaware, (and there will be plenty here and elsewhere)

..


BTW- reading Kalanirnay ROFL !!! I cant even imagine myself reading a decent Marathi newspaper (not to my credit anyway)

But I sure would like to sit on a charpoy when I get a chance..one of those "do-nothing" holidays which are so rare.

This is a man who just created a Yoga ministry and a matching cabinet post.

Did you expect anything else?
