Hello Subhamoy:

Hats off to you! You are doing a great service through this superb site! Since last so many years, i have been recommending this web site to anyone, Indian or non-Indian, who is interested to know more about Hinduism. I have found one more such site which is stephen-knapp.com. This is also a superb site! Stephen has been visiting schools and colleges around the world to talk about the greatness of Hinduism! A must see site for all the details. Thanks, Subhamoy for all your efforts! Keep it up!

Mr Roy.
I have to congratulate you for the wonderful service of projecting the inner hidden gems contained in the Hindu scriptures through ur site. The vedas, upanishads etc written by the Hindu Rishis 5000 years ago are very relevant to the presentday affairs.The one statemnet Vasudeiva Kudumbakam denoting the world as one single family is enough to show how forwardlooking was our past Rishis.
Your effort to bring home the spirit in Hinduism is laudable, and pray to God to give you long life and mental strength to continue work in that direction.

(18) N. says:

I make an earnest request that all India loving people abandon calling our Dharm an ism. Dharm is not an ism and neither is even religion, an ism. The term Hinduism is highly derogatory and misleading. There is Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, even Sufism, but it is Christianity and not Christianism. It is not a grammatical accident, by any stretch of imagination. Microsoft Word will reject the term Christianism, but you can pretty well put ism to anything else, including Islam and it will accept Islamism.

The lovers of English and the language, both in India and elsewhere, are obsessed with using an a at the end, as if, it will cramp their style and make them unintelligible if they were not to. The word is धर्म and not धर्मा. However, if people insist on using an a at the end of each such word that has been brutally anglicized, it is their wish.

Those of you who are familiar with the culture of Hindi speaking North India will bear me out that when people refuse to do what they felt was improper, they will say. ” यह हमारे धर्म में नहीं है. यह हम नहीं कर सकते.” Here they are not referring to their religion nor to some ism. The reference is to the governing principles of their धर्म, which if I dare to transform in English it would be ‘our way of life,’ and some other similar terminology. A way way of life derived from their धर्म. You must forgive me for not being familiar with similar expressions in so many beautiful languages of India. Some that I understand and speak not efficiently, others are very alien to me.

Lastly, I thank all readers and urge them to look into any two bit dictionary for meaning of the term ism. I came across this site, looking for 30 Quotes about India…. Not one quote uses the word Hinduism, to best of my observation. It can be argued that the quotes are not about religion. I accept. I will also go to the extent of saying there is no such thing as Hindu Religion. It is Hindu Dharm, (हिन्दू धर्म).

Thanks for your wonderful site and information.
The 30 Quotes on India should be sent to every primary and secondary school and taught with reference to our contribution at large and cultural heritage. Is there any other country where another ‘religion’ prospered, respected, and its practices followed by Hindu population?

Breast implant massage and displacement is recommended by almost all plastic surgeons after breast augmentation to decrease the risk of capsular contracture.

Avoid lifting, bending, or straining as it can lead to more pain and discomfort which will prolong the healing.
