Martial arts of Akhanda Bharat or undivided India including Sri Lanka are our pan-Hindu heritage – a crucial system of Hindu armed resistance to invaders. When practising weapons is practised as a Guru-Shishya parampara, with rules and restrictions, with updating and evolution of styles, it is a martial art.
A lot of internet information focuses on just a few styles. A lot of such internet websites fail to underline the Hindu nationalistic basis of these martial arts, or show their similarities in origins and tenets. All that has been attempted in this blog. So while the style is informative and slightly encyclopedic, it serves to provide a ready compendium on Indian martial arts.
In this blog, as stated, we s... more
HINDU MUSLIM RIOTS: POLICE, POLITICS, HINDU SELF-DEFENCE
Without police protection assured in HinduMuslim riots due to Secularist Indian politics, Hindus must prepare for self-defence.
DISCLAIMER AND CLARIFICATION BEFORE THE MAIN CONTENT:
This blog writer, vide articles like this, does not advocate communal violence for pre-emptive wanton reasons, like instigating riots and harming life, limb, reputation and property, which should be prevented by good governance; where riots that have begun must be prevented from spreading with speedy justice to the first victims and fair administration and justice in the overall approach. Savarkar had himself said, after independence, that we have to use the ballot instead of the bullet.
Regarding how the Indian State and society must deal with communal ... more
A small section of Indian Muslim society IS involved with desi cow protection and also, cattle conservation- there are Muslim gau paalaks and gau sewaks, Muslim proponents of Cow Rearing and even Muslim Cattle conservationists. Let us see some examples.
Jabar Jat, Kutchh:
Jabar had resorted to hunger strike outside the Kutchh collector’s office (Gujarat), demanding fodder arrangements per taluka (mandaal / block) of the district.

The forgotten GouMaata breeds, rivers and territories of Undivided India’s West
The words ‘INDICUS’ (in Bos indicus) and ‘INDIA’ respectively refer to Indian Zebu cattle and to historic undivided Hindu India (Akhand Bharatvarsha). India – to upright Hindus – includes not just what is India as of post-1947, but also what is Afghanistan, Baluchistan and Pakistan, regions pending fulfilment of the Akhanda Bharat pledge: of re-conquest by India of whatever all was lost after separatisms, Islamic conversions and partitions gradually over the last 1300 years.
The Desi (Zebu) Cow with the hump as a distinct species of cattle – Bos indicus or the Indian cattle – is... more
Most Hindus who respect cows and their own culture as well as most opponents of cow protection seem to lump all the above words above into ONE system. Not that they are totally wrong, but there are shades of nuanced differences amongst these six activisms, along with an overlap in purport. Without doubt, Shree Krushna Bhagawan was all of these and much more.
Let us see the differences:
1. GoPaalak / गो–पालक Cow Keeper
These are the Hindus that keep and look after cows (and bulls), either as farmers or as goushala folks.
India is a country of farmers and villages, due to which agriculture is the backbone of India’s economy.
Farmers need both the bulls and the cows.
Cattle are the aatmaa of India’s agriculture, providing sources of fertility (dung, urine), food (milk and milk p... more
The Indian Desi cow: Potential for Hindu Resurgence in contemporary politics of India
Section I: Some science before politics: Taxonomy, evolution and physiology of ‘cattle’
(For clarity, buffaloes, nilgai, bison, mithun, yak and banteng are not included in the term ‘cattle’ or ‘gai’ in this blog, though buffaloes too are often otherwise considered ‘cattle’. For this blog, cattle = cows, calves and bulls.)
Activism for the Deshi Cow has the potential to be the next big mobiliser for political and social Hindu resurgence after the Ram Janma Bhoomi movement, can offer inputs in countering the Aryan Migration Theory, can positively affect Indian agroecology and our village economies, integrate our community components into one fabric, improve human health and create a conf... more
Exposing the Christian inculturation into Hawaiian and Hindu sacred dances
Kali MahaDevi and Devi Pele
For Christianity to seep into any non-Abrahamic society, infiltrating a popular art form forms a great Trojan horse strategy. Christian missions have mastered the art of creeping into and chewing away a non-other entity from inside, leaving an empty façade from outside. Inculturation gained momentum with the infiltration of Greek Gnosticism which led to Greece becoming a citadel of Orthodox Christianity and the extinctions of Greek beliefs, Gnosticism, Hellenism or anything else. Most symbols of European Christianity that we see today – like Easter, the mistletoe, Santa Claus, etc. – had a pagan pre-Christian, non-Abrahamic origin... more
THE BIRTH OF BHARAT MATA WITH THE HIMALAYAS, AND THE BIRTH OF TIBET…
There is a creationist view of things, and there is a geological basis of things. This article seeks to connect prehistoric geology with modern international geo-politics as a continuum.
FROM PANAGAEA TO GONDWANA, AND, THE DETACHMENT OF WHAT WAS THE INDIA LANDMASS:
225 million years ago, we only had one land mass, the supercontinent Pangaea, which broke up into two aggregate super-continents:
(1) ‘Laurasia’ north of the equator and (2) ‘Gondwana’ south of the equator. They were separated by the ‘Tethys Sea’.
The name ‘Gondwana’ was applied by British researchers familiar with India, after the actual province of Gondwana or the land of the ancient Gond tribe of central India... more

THE IMPORTANCE OF ISLANDS, WATER ROUTES AND A BLUE WATER NAVY
TO INDIA’S SECURITY
Across history, invasions have happened through the sea:
Entire pagan nations and pagan societies, indeed entire continents have been occupied and converted to Abrahamic faiths by force, which began from the landing of successful expeditions of an invader navy. While Britain and France colonized Northern America, America further colonized and created American defence bases in islands and lands further off America’s shores. These far offshore places include Hawaii (our previous blog).
Any nation with a sea coastline, strives to augment one’s defence and offence capabilities, as well as seafaring entrepreneurships, through a naval arm... more
THE HINDU-HAWAIIAN ENCOUNTER
In the first blog we realized how:
- Natural ecosystems shape human geo-cultures;
- New human geo-cultures can change old geo-cultures;
- Ecosystems have to be resilient; and geo-cultures have also got to be resilient
Here in this article, as our first ecosystem and geo-culture, we shall study the ‘island’ and the ‘islander’ respectively, with reference to Hawaii. We shall look at Hawaii from two lenses: the Hindu-Pagan lens and the lens of the AgroEcologist.
