...the same U.S. news media that are conveying the preciousness of children so terribly harmed in Boston are scarcely interested in children like Guljumma.
I thought of her again when seeing news reports and a chilling photo on April 7, soon after 11 children in eastern Afghanistan were even more unlucky than she was. Those children died from a U.S./NATO air strike. For mainline American journalists, it wasn’t much of a story; for American officials, it was no big deal.

Yes. We can sometimes write and exchange views. I love Israel so much! This is only because I have read so many things about the Jews. Do you know about Jew in our city Calcutta (which we now write as 'Kolkata')? Please tell me if you are interested. I can send you a small portion from my book which is yet to be published.
If you are interested you can call me on Skype. My Skype name is debukolkata.
Really? I did not know that Israelis come to India for such studies. But where do they come? To Benaras, or elsewhere?
You must know that there are always some affinities among religions. Hinduism is wider, because it is historical. It has acquired contradictory experiences of religions through ages. It has changed accordingly. It has never rejected anything, rather has assimilated them.The word 'Religion' is also different in Hinduism. We call it Dharma. Dharma is etymologically what sustains, keeps people united not only outwardly. It controls man's conscience, and regulates man's inner voice. It keeps them ethically strong.
Hinduism has, however, been molested by fanatics - and that has been always with a purpose., common to all religions.
While surfing I came across your Sanskrit sentence. I am a Sanskritist and worked on an Austrian Jew Indologist Professor Moriz Winternitz. He was a friend of our Indian great poet Rabindranath Tagore and he spent a year in the International University founded by him to teach Sanskrit. My thesis of PhD embraced his World Vision and India's contribution to it. During the process I had to study Jewish history... So I found an Israelite's combining Sanskrit sloka quite interesting.
Yes, it's a 1976 Harley Sportster, just not with the ape hanging handlebars. I have 2 Full Dressers Cruisin bikes, one I'm putting a side car on and the other turning it into a Trike. I have trouble holding those 2 up, as I have one prosthetic leg and the other is weak.
I just got 2 late 1970's Mopeds, so I guess I'll have My riding days covered.LOL
