the words known from the day one we started to know them have changed frequently in their utility and meaning. how many of us know that we are permanently naked as far as understanding of the real meaning of words we use in our daily life, i said naked word because dressing is accepted as sign of civilization.
did you see the beauty of many species having a defined life span and a defined area of operation with fixed habits and behavior but human?

What it forgets is that if missionaries have a right to preach the Gospel, ancient societies professing pacifist non-proselytising religions have a right to defend themselves.” – Virendra Parekh
Thanks, but no thanks. That would be the reaction of discerning missionaries to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s much awaited intervention in the ongoing discourse on tolerance and religious freedom. He has obliged them at last, but with a twist which negates much of the favour.
