Followers of Sri Aurobindo and the French Mother, who are
worshipped, since Sri Aurobindo's follows "Guru Pooja" style
Hinduism, are strict vegetarians.
At least in the Pondicherry Ashram, including Auroville, they
are served only vegetarian diet and are recommended a vegetarian
diet , as part of the spiritual exercise, even if they happen to
Almost without exception all Hindu sannyasi gurus, elsewhere also
advocate a vegetarian diet as part of spiritual exercise.

THANKS TO THE IDEOLOGY OF SANGH PARIVAR, INDIAN CHRISTIANS LIVING
IN INDIA ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE LIKE JEWS IN NAZI GERMANY.
MY CONCERN IS BECAUSE THE RABID IDEOLOGY IS BEING ACCEPTED AND
SUPPORTED BY MORE AND MORE INTELLIGENTSIA BOTH IN INDIA AND AMONG
POI AND NRI LIVING IN COMFORT AND TOTAL FREEDOM IN CHRISTIAN
MAJORITY WESTERN DEMOCRACIES.
THE TOTAL HYPOCRISY OF THE POI AND NRI SANGH PARIVAR SUPPORTERS
FROM WESTERN COUNTRIES IS SADLY NOT OBVIOUS TO THEM EVEN THOUGH
IT IS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF THEIR FACES.

I do not wish to make a "vulgar display" of my knowledge of
religions. That was not the intent of adding my two cents to
topics that were raised or responding to posts addre ssed to me.
In this day and age of Internet forums, there are plenty of
places where one may go to dis cuss any specific topic.
SINCE AAMIR DEALS WITH POLITICAL THEMES IN HIS MOVIES, AT LEAST
IN TWO OF THE THREE MOVIES OF HIS I HAVE SEEN, I DIDN'T FEEL IT
WAS INAPPROPRIATE TO DIS CUSS POLITICS OR RELIGION HERE AS THE
TOPIC CAME UP.
THANKS TO SANGH PARIVAR, RELIGION HAS BECOME PART OF MAINSTREAM
INDIAN POLITICS. NEVER MIND THE INDIAN CONSTITUTION IS A SECULAR
ONE WHICH GIVES FREEDOM OF RELIGION TO ALL.

Modern Hindutva, has now invented history on behalf of Christians
in Kerala like me. I'm to understand, as per the new
understanding, my ancestors came from Persia and they were given
refuge in India by Hindu kings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why such a invented
history? It doesn't fit the modern Hindutva to admit that some
Hindu Brahmins and many high caste Hindus in Kerala willingly
converted to Christianity, and it was no less than an Apostle of
Jesus, Thomas who brought about the conversion.
THAT IS WHAT I WAS REFERRING IN MY POST TO YOU AAMIR WHEN I WROTE
THAT MY ANCESTORS WERE NOT REFUGEES.

Anyone who is familiar with Kendriya Vidhyalayas know that we get
drilled with unity in diversity patriotism. We are taught that
Mother India loves all her children equally, and the different
languages, cultures and languages of India are all an integral
part of her.

I did the first three years of my schooling in Kerala, in two
simple village schools in the home villages of both my parents.
My father's village had a large percentage of Muslims, along with
Christians and Hindus, wherea s my mother's village was
predominantly Christian, with fewer Hindus. And my clas s
reflected the local population.
In Tamil Nad, I studied first in a convent school run by nuns
from Thris sur dist, which admitted also non-Christians. After
two years I luckily got admi ssion as a civilian in a Kendriya
Vidhyalaya (central school). I studied in Tamil Nad, and then
moved to a KV in Bangalore from which I pa ssed out.
