One thing has been bothering me intensely since this whole new media campaign decrying the rape incidents and petitioning for better laws. The term of rapist is applied to the whole male sex. There are men who suffer from sexual harassment and have also been raped, facing an even greater social stigma.

The Vedas and the creation of the world

In the last post in this series I took a look at the Indus valley and its gods. The reasons for the demise of the Indus valley are still debated, but it is widely believed that the migration patterns of the Aryan people bought them down into the green valleys of the Indus and beyond. The Aryans were hunter gatherers and drove herds of animals with them. The greener & warmer pastures of the belt between the Indus and the Ganges, had these people become farmers and planters and settle down in these regions.

I think the dogs have some tendencies.

Link : 64-bit Firefox for Windows should be prioritized

The Mozilla foundation is de-prioritising the development work on 64bit version of Firefox for Windows. This is a good article which points out why not, while also explaining the benefits of 64bit browsers. It does make me think however – that browsers these days are fundamentally broken.

Early civilisation and the first Gods

The bronze age of man bought with it a more organised religion than which was practiced in the stone age.  The great civilisations of the period, – Ancient Egyptian in Africa, Mesopotamia in Central Asia and the Indus Valley Civilisation in north India – developed the first thought forms of the Godhead, the beginnings of religion. Their beliefs evolved slowly over the centuries and gradually developed into a comprehensive world view shared by the people.
