Slaughtered, sealed and delivered

Counted as one of the world’s most exotic locations attracting tourists from all over the country as well as the world, Goa is a haven of “good times” for most people around the world. Apart from the tourists, locals and fun-seekers, there is another population residing in Goa, for whom the city-state is anything but exotic.
On the occasion of Eid, 9 calves, cows and bulls were brutally slaughtered in broad daylight in Goa. Open slaughter of animals is strictly prohibited in India. Slaughtering cows is not allowed. The slaughter of calves is illegal and the butchering of bulls below the age of 14 without a ‘fit to to slaughter’ certificate from a recognized vet and outside of an authorised slaughterhouse is completely against the law.
Yet the animals were slaughtered, the meat of the animals was stuffed in polythene bags and their bodies left in the open. The tails, intestines and skinned remains of the animals were found littered behind Nagesh Garden Magaon, South Goa.
A case was registered in Margaon Police Station vide FIR number 237/2016. The police have arrested 2 men for the crime. Out of the 9 animals, only one managed to survive. The lone surviving bull has been given shelter at Dhyan Foundation’s gaushala in South Goa’s Avedem Village. Dhyan Foundation’s Goa gaushalas are home to hundreds of stray, injured and ageing cattle.
“Causing pain to innocent helpless animals is one of the biggest sins man can commit. You usually take birth in dimensions which you fit in to as per your deeds and karmas – so if you behave like a wild dog tearing up bodies of animals, no points for guessing what you’ll be in the next life….and the next life will happen only after you have spent your time balancing out your sins in the lower hells,” says Yogi Ashwini, the Guiding Light of Dhyan Foundation.
Animals in India need your help! Even if you cannot physically help these animals or donate, a firm email or tweet to the enforcement agencies from you can go a long way in improving the situation of animals in India.

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …


“Whenever and wherever there is a decline in righteousness, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of vice – at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of dharma, I advent Myself epoch after epoch” Since the beginning, Lord Vishnu incarnated in various forms on earth from time to time. Whenever there was a disbalance in Creation, it was ensured that the avatars worked on rectifying it. The avatar was bespoke of the yuga as the yugas needed to change with time. He took birth as a Brahmin (Parshurama) to annihilate the corrupt Kshatriyas, as a prince(Rama) to slay the demon king of Lanka and as a cowherd(Krishna) who executed the cunning Kansa and steered the Pandavas to victory. Lord Vishnu is said to have ten avatars (dashavatars) in the present cycle of four yugas. Now, being the Kalyug, is the time when the tenth and the final avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth on Earth. If we …


The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…
