Rather strange that shalom, salaam, handshake, waving good-bye are all one-handed gestures.

Only namaskar is a two-handed gesture?

What’s common to medieval, ‘classic’ love-stories – Sohni Mahiwal, Heer Ranjha, Laila Majnu, Shirin Farhad. Even Romeo & Juliet.

Four of the five stories are set in the triangle of Punjab, Iran and Afghanistan – except Romeo & Juliet.

The other common aspect in all five stories is social and/or family opposition to the relationship between the lovers.

Now such stories should have happened in ‘casteist-Hindu’ society in Benares, Madurai or a Patna.

Have things changed now?

You only have to look at the hounding of Tiger Woods or the stoning of Sakineh Ashtiani to understand that leopards don’t change their spots.

Can cultures change centuries of conditioning?

Only भारत-तंत्र Bharat-tantra guaranteed four freedoms – धर्म (dharma – justice), अर्थ (arth – wealth and means), काम (kaam – human desires) मोक्ष (moksha – liberty)

And the three rights – ज़र (jar – gold), जन (jan – human ties) and जमीन (jameen – property)

For all.
