The Land of Light

Bha means Light and Rathi means attachment and Bharata is the land where people are attached to Light, where the call of the Infinite is listened to with keenness! This is the land where the Vedas and the Upanishads first saw the Light, where Bhagavan Sankara established monasteries for the propagation of the Eternal Law, the Sanatana Dharma.

Even after the onslaughts of the Moghal Empire and the British Empire, we have not changed our faith. The same Faith  which our Lord taught,  the Yogis cognised,  the Rishies disseminated and our poets confirmed.

Now a "Pratyaksha Professor" ( A K Kaul )  is coming out with a theory which, as one scholar pointed out, can shake the foundations of our knowledge and belief !

This is the land graced by high intellectuals like Aurobindo and Ramana Maharshi, Dr Radhakrishnan, Vivekananda and Tagore. Yet we are challenged by a "Pratyaksha Professor" of low learning and low intellect !
