The Indian mainstream is scrambling around for an identity that resonates beyond their borders on an international level. They truly believe India is a sleeping giant, and should be dining at the top table. This kind of ambition does count for something, and I'm sure it will inch them forward over the next few decades, but overall the poverty, the corruption, and general sense of third-worldness won't be shaken off anytime soon.
Funnily enough, I think the sheer size of the place and the maddening diversity of languages, cultures, and faiths (albeit all of an Eastern flavour) mean an organic, gradual, and "natural" collapse isn't on the cards, unlike England which is happily and obliviously marching towards its fall. I believe Europe the continent -- and by extension the civilisation that grew from as far back as the impact of the Enlightenment -- is in its death throes. We are embarking on the journey into Decadence and decline. Europe will end before India does if things are allowed to run their natural course. If we factor a devastating regional war, perhaps nuclear, into the mix, then there's no saying what will happen.
Don't be fooled by the 'healthier' or 'fluoride-free' toothpastes e.g. Kingfisher. Always read the ingredients and research them. They also contain toxic chemicals and I have not found one which is completely safe.
Secondly the toothbrushes themselves are not fit for purpose. The bristles are plastic which is not only an ineffective cleaning material but is a breeding ground for pathogens and biofilm formation.
It's much better to stick with Nature and Guru Ji's hukam and use Datun. It is completely safe and effective and will actually destroy pathogens. Why settle for second grade gimmicks which will only do harm?
Massive respect to Khalsa! After two failed attempts of hunger till death and countless allegations and cursing from the demoralised Panth, Gurbaksh Singh has finally lived up to what he promised to the Panth and Bandhi Singhs.
In a way this reminds me of the ‘Chaali Mukhte’ where they later realised their mistake and returned to the Guru.
Madness i tells thee its complete missionary madness.
Most Hindu 's especially hindu punjabi's , muslims and christians all believe in black magic/superstitions i noticed.
They have yet to come into the light they still live in backward beliefs and encouraging gullible others to join in with their pakhand. If it wasn't serious it would be hilarious but these people are determined to convert Sikhs, hindus and break up families and bring punjab into the pakhand of worshipping foreigner middle eastern blue eyed blonde hair white man and itto the Christendom sphere of geo-political influence.
