Modi's International Yoga Day plan: Great idea but keep Hinduism out of it

Yoga in schools is a great, though not novel, idea. It is a healthy prescription for children used to sedentary lives, stress of competition and pollution in the environment. Just as students are expected to study pre-decided subjects, at pre-decided hours, there is no harm in making yogic postures and breathing exercises part of the curriculum, at least for those who are medically fit for them. #Religion #Narendra Modi #Hinduism #CriticalPoint #Yoga #secular #National Yoga Day

The Dalit vote in Bihar and UP: Why BJP has suddenly become fond of BR Ambedkar

The Dalit vote in Bihar and UP: Why BJP has suddenly become fond of BR Ambedkar

One of the obvious reasons is its attempt to transform into a party of Dalits instead of what Mayawati and Kanshiram derisively called a patron of Tilak (Brahmins), Tarazu (Bania) and Talwar (Kshatriyas). The BJP knows that elections in Bihar and UP are around the corner and the nearly 22 percent Dalit vote here could be the decisive factor. #BJP #InMyOpinion #Hinduism #Dalit #RSS #BR Ambedkar #Buddhism #Ambedkar #Dalit vote #Untouchables
