All you need to know about Audrey, a thread:

Madame Truschke, apart from being married into a Christian evangelical family, works for the American Institute of Pakistan Studies (AIPS) which is funded by the Pakistani government.
Earliest mention of her on their website is from 2012 when she received funding for her work.

AIPS agenda is to whitewash Islamic history in India and abroad. Pushing pro-islam anti-hindu garbage is literally her job.
I don't even need to mention her books that couldn't be more blatant in their attempt at pushing lies about indian history and hinduism.

Her conflicts of interest are nakedly visible to one and all.
I hope she rots ☺️

Thread: Henry David Thoreau and his journey into Hindu philosophy, while the west was gripped by Transcendentalism

Thoreau's interest in India and its philosophical texts began when he found the Laws of Manu in Emerson’s library.
Thoreau wrote in his journal that: “comes to me with such a volume of sound as if I had swept unobstructed over the plains of Hindostan, and when my eye rests on yonder birches; or the sun in the water or the shadows on the trees ~ it seems to signify the laws of them all.”
Thoreau had a large collection of Indian books for which he built a special bookcase out of driftwood. He said that indian "philosophy and poesy seem to me superior to, if not transcending greatly, all others".

The west has academia centred around "Asian studies" and they love spewing unsolicited opinions about our culture, religion and politics. The ultimate flex would be to reverse the gaze onto western society and study them. We should set up Indian Institutes of Western studies, and
publish academic papers about topics such as: disintegration of familial structures in the west & other sociology aspects, history of genocides and slavery they've successfully evaded answerability for, drug addiction in middle America, rise of Nazism among white Americans,
distribution and ideologies of white supremacist hate groups in the past and present, for-profit prison systems, military industrial complex, criminality and why the US has the highest rates of incarceration in the world, their racial prejudices, etc - to benign topics such as:

I've been mulling over this for a while. Please bear with me while I rant! It pains me to see the onslaught hindus face everyday from every possible direction, while we neither have the institutional strength nor the street veto power to prevent these things from happening again.
Dark, destructive and extremely powerful forces are enveloping India. I truly believe what we're doing isn't enough. It's not all fun and games and simply spending time "discovering your Hindu heritage" isn't enough to guarantee the sustenance of our civilization though the ages.
Every Hindu must first and foremost constantly vigilant. From errant comments to the slaying of our Hindu brethren - each is an equally potent open threat that endangers our survival. Mild assertion of an unapologetic Hindu identity won't suffice -

have you ever tried reading about something before you talk about it?

1. No original text describing charvaka philosophy exists
2. The tenets of charvaka could not withstand the test of debate by other Hindu philosophers and it died out in a few hundred years, by the 12th c.
3. Its central tenets are henonism and materialism (simply a distillation of that western societies espouse and modern India has adopted)
4. rejection of that which you can't perceive with your own senses as untruth (so.. most of science and medicine?)
original text of Charvaka has never been found. there are only references to it in later jain and buddhist texts that make fun of it Image

Came across some information about the female Sanskrit poetesses featured at the end of this book 'The Cane Groves of Narmada River'. I was surprised to learn about Shilabhattārika, a 9th c. female Sanskrit poet, patronised by King Bhoja, who was himself a poet and connoisseur.
Shilabhattarika was an accomplished poetess, renowned for her simplicity and sweetness. Descriptions of the Vindhyas and the Narmada river feature in her work. She is honored for her Panchali literary style of poetic expression.
King Bhoja, the most celebrated ruler of the Paramāra Dynasty, was a great patron of education and the arts. At his palace in Dhara (now in Madhya Pradesh), he constructed the Bhojashala, an elaborate temple dedicated to poetry and learning.
