1. Political: UCC likely to see huge protests from non-majority communities, perhaps equal to or more intense than land reforms and agri reforms protests.
2. If Govt stands firm - different matter. If not, yet another capitulation and significant loss of political currency.
3. Also with the likely fallout and necessary dealing with it, certain that no currency will remain to push any further agenda related to pro-Hindu constitutional changes - likely even in 2024+
4. Electoral: Likely massive favour amongst Hindus because somehow UCC is thought of as being good for Hindus.
5. Absolute polarization of non-Hindus guaranteed.
6. Social: Close to zero benefits for Hindus. In terms of Government interference in Hindu matters, guaranteed UCC won't offer any relaxation. Chance of Govt arm extending to additional matters significant.
7. Major blow to Ghar-wapasi. Distinction, and distinct superiority of Hindu personnel code, vanishes.
8. Any future amendment to Hindu personnel law can only come into effect if majority of communities agree to it (if UCC law starts again to distinguish communities, it is no UCC anyways).
9. Issues like polygamy can be dealt with without need for common law.
10. Net: There is no need for UCC now. Amendments to Art 25-30 far, FAR, more important and URGENT.

1. It is generally accepted that Sri Madhwacharya composed at least 37 works - these are known as the Sarvamoola Granthas. What is amazing about these 37 is the breadth of areas/styles that they spawn.
2. True to the tradition of a Vedantic philosopher, he has written commentaries on the Brahmasutras, Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita. In addition he has written commentaries on the Mahabharata and Bhagavata
3. He has written a work known as Tantra Sara Sangraha which is a book on mantras, temple consecration and worship. He has written a book called Jayanti Nirnaya which touches upon astronomy and astrology.

1. If the field of knowledge you are researching is still alive, and its rules of interpretation, including ones that existed in the past, are known - then you have got to use that to study the field. For e.g. studying a sanskrit text.
2. You cannot study a Sanskrit text as if you are doing some archaeological research or decrypting an ancient inscription or cave paintings.
3. You cannot say "hey look at this Sanskrit shloka - it contains the word sun, moon, rohini and peeda - so it means sun and moon are giving peeda to rohini".

1. Hadn't read this article till date. Atrocious allegations against a great scholar who has, for a change, done real and scientific research on the Mahabharata.

2. Couldn't control laughing when I saw some of the responses of the self assumed bearers of 'tradition'. First of all, a written rebuttal to a book, that too in the form of a book, is a perfect response.
3. Secondly rebutting a theory with a counter write-up is older than debates in our tradition. The debates between various Vedantic schools for e.g. best illustrate this tradition.

A thread on quotes from Sri BNK Sharma's magnum opus - "The Philosophy of Sri Madhvacharya".

Available for free reading at michaelsudduth.com/wp-content/upl…
"Only an all-embracing explanation of life, consistent with experience, would satisfy the requirements of reason, man's highest instrument for regulation of life"
On Philosophy:

"It must deal with problems which force themselves on our thought and press for a solution viz., what man is, why he is conditioned as he is, what his goal is and how he is to attain it"

1. Had attempted a write-up on Brahmacharya and its importance a while ago.

indiafacts.org/brahmacharya-a…
2. Whenever I discuss Brahmacharya with anyone I try to give the following analogy:

Ayurveda considers 'Mahaghrutha' as a great medicine. There are innumerable diseases which it can cure and prevent. It is one of the great Aushadhis.
3. There are slightly different milestones for Mahaghrutha but Charaka Samhita says ghee stored for over 100 years is Mahaghrutha. Some say 111 years. Essentially over 100 years.
