When Rome was Counting in I, II, III etc., India was Counting in Trillions!


In his book ‘On India’, Alberuni  (AD 1030) recorded his neutral opinion about India and her people as he observed them. He says, “In arithmetic all nations agree that all the orders of numbers (e.g. one, ten, hundred, thousand) stand in a certain relation to the ten; that each order is the tenth part of the following and the tenfold of the preceding. I have studied the names of the orders of the numbers in various languages with all kinds of people with whom I have been in contact, and have found that no nation goes beyond the thousand. …..

  “Those, however, who go beyond the thousand in their numeral system are the Hindus, at least in their arithmetical technical terms, which have been either freely invented or derived according to certain etymologies, whilst in others both methods are blended together.  They extend the names of the orders of numbers until the 18th order for religious reasons, the mathematicians being assigned by the grammarians with all kinds of etymologies.

  “The 18th order is called Parardha, i.e. the half of heaven, or, more accurately, the half of that which is above. For if the Hindus construct periods of time out of Kalpas, the unit of this order is a day of God (i.e. a half nychthemeron). And as we do not know anybody larger than heaven, half of it (Parardha), has been compared with a half of the greatest day. By doubling it, by uniting night to day, we get the whole of the greatest day. There can be doubt that the name of Parardha is accounted for in this way, and that parar means the whole of heaven.

 “The following are the names of the eighteen orders of numbers:

  1. Ekam ….. (In digit by editor: 1

  2. Dasam ….. (10

  3. Satam …… (100

  4. Sahasram ….. (1000

Congress, Answer These Questions First – Before Questioning Others!

By: Raviasha

Congress and its allied ‘make-believe secular or liberal` elements often ask this question: “Who gave BJP / RSS the right to represent Hindus in India?”

This question is answered by Neil Mezi on quora thus:

Not that I am any RSS fan!

But who gave you the right to steal and claim all of India’s freedom struggle as gift/charity to Indian masses by the sole family/nepotistic dynasty – The Gandhis?

Aren’t you erasing, white washing, mocking the sacrifices of millions of freedom fighters, mass heroes like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, Subash Chandra Bose etc that laid down their lives for the country?

Who gave you right to loot India for 60 years? Who gave you right to name all airports, ports after your nepotistic family? Is India your personal property?

Who gave you right to donate India’s land coco Islands etc to other nations without seeking Indian masses permission? Is India’s land your personal property?

Who gave you right to declare Muslims as minority when Parsis, Jains, Jews, Buddhists, homosexuals, trans-gendered are actual minority and Muslims the second largest majority?

Who gave you right to tax Hindu temples and shrines and use the money for government and expenditure for all religion masses, but exempt tax on Muslim and Christian shrines in name of appeasement? Are you punishing Hindu faith believers for being Hindus?

Who gave you right to segregate common laws meant for all? You reformed Hindu law but did not touch other religions’ laws, why?

Who gave you right to allow Muslims to practice polygamy etc but ban other faiths to do it, isn’t this sheer hypocrisy and open bias towards one religion’s followers under the pretence of being secular party?

Who gave you right to spend Indian tax payers money on madrassa’s religious education when you don’t pay same amount of funds to other religions’ followers education?

Who gave you right to fund Haj subsidies, provide minority quota etc to them when you don’t provide same subsidies to other faiths to visit their shrines or provide minority quota to Kashmiri pandits in JK or other 8 states where Hindus are in a minority?

Who gave you right to send / use Indian navy frigate to lay wreath on sea burial of Edwina Mountbatten by her love interest Nehru in his personal capacity at British’s South Coast? Is Indian Navy machinery your family members’ personal property?

Who gave you right to provide secret/safe passage to criminal Warren Anderson, Union Carbide CEO who was charged with manslaughter by Indian court and put in custody?

Who gave you right to allow to flee a person from custody who was responsible for blinding and deaths of lakhs of people in Bhopal gas tradegy, whose generation after generation still suffer deformity and yet received no compensation from them? Wasn’t that betrayal and criminal on your part to India?

Who gave you right to mock 26/11 tragedy, strikes at border etc from the likes of Digvijay Singh, Sanjay Nirupam etc?

When Congress can answer all these questions, they can bother questioning others. Before that, Congress has not moral right to ask others any question. A culprit cannot point a finger at others!

Urban Planning in Ancient India

Source: Know Your Bharat

There is an interesting information about Urban planning in ancient Bhārat, especially  during the Maurya Period. Its source is @vajrayudha11.

We all know that Harappan civilization had well developed tradition of urban planning, especially its trademark ‘grid planning’ of streets.

But a common perception is that this tradition of urban planning died along with the decline of Harappan civilization. It is a wrong perception. The truth is otherwise.

Both literary and archaeological evidence strongly suggest the survival of this urban planning well into the Maurya period and beyond.

Ancient treatise such as Arthaśāstra & Vāstuśāstra texts put great emphasis on – and talk in detail about – various aspects of urban planning.

For example, we find a well laid out network of streets running perpendicular to main road in the excavated portion of the ancient city of Takshashila. Just see this image to appreciate this truth:

The sketch of this excavated site looks like this:

One of the best examples of the tradition of urban planning in ancient Bhārat comes from a small Mauryan town of Vichhigrama (modern Bhita) in UP. The image of this excavated site is reproduced here:

A Kid Tells his Daddy, What is Pakistan!

By: Sudarsh V.

Note: This hilarious item of Nadeem F Paracha is published by DAWN, a leading English Daily newspaper of  Pakistan. It truly depicts what is taught to kids in their schools in Pakistan and what is shown there on television chennels to the immature minds of ignorant masses.

It is a culture – a mindset, which is propagated not only in the geographical Pakistan but also in ‘cultural Pakistan’, which is existing in many parts of India. This culture – this mindset – has completely ruined Pakistan seemingly beyond redemption and slowly spreading its tenecales in many states within India. For these dark corners, ignorance is the bliss.

This item is in the form of conversation between a kid and his father, in which the father tries his best to inculcate some commonsence in the mind of his child but the child rebuffs his father’s attempt, upholds the supremacy of the blind religious ideas that are filled to the brim in his little mind and even threatens his father. This conversation goes like this:

Son: Daddy?
Dad: Yes, son.

Son: Are we going to have a war with India?
Dad: Perhaps.

Son: Oh, goody. We will thrash them, right? Like we did in 1857!
Dad: It wasn’t in 1857, son.

Son: Oh, okay. But whom did we thrash in 1857?
Dad: The British, son…

Son: And the Hindus too, right?
Dad: Well…

Son: Did Quaid-i-Azam fight in that war along with Muhammad bin Qasim and Imran Khan?
Dad: No, son. The Quaid and Imran were born much later and Muhammad bin Qasim died many years before.

Son: Then who ruled Pakistan in those days?
Dad: There was no Pakistan in those days, son.

Son: But there was always a Pakistan! It has been there for 5,000 years!

Dad: Who have you been talking to, son?                                                          Son: No one. I’ve just been watching TV.
Dad: It figures.

Son: Daddy, why are all these people against us Arabs?
Dad: Arabs? But we aren’t Arabs, son.

Son: Of course we are because our ancestors were Arabs!
Dad: No, son. Our ancestors were of the subcontinental stock.

Son: Sub-what?
Dad: Never mind. You seem to like wars, son.

Son: Yes. I like to watch them on TV.
Dad: But real wars are fought outside the TV, son.

Son: Really? How is that possible? What sort of a war is that?
Dad: Never mind.

Son: Daddy, you look worried.
Dad: Of course, I am, you little warmongering punk!

Son: Daddy! Why are you scolding me?
Dad: Because TV is talking rot and so are you!

Son: Daddy, are you supporting Hindus?
Dad: No!

Son: Daddy, have you become a kafir?
Dad: Keep quiet! No more TV for you! Go watch a movie on DVD or listen to a CD.

Son: Can’t do that.
Dad: But we have so many DVDs and CDs, son.

Son: Not any more.
Dad: What do you mean?

Son: I burned them all.
Dad: What?!

Son: I burned them all.
Dad: I heard that! But why?

Son: They spread obscenity.
Dad: Oh, God. Son, go do your homework. What happened to that science project you were working on?

Son: It’s almost complete.
Dad: Good boy. What are you making?

Son: A bomb.
Dad: What?!

Son: A bomb.
Dad: I heard that! But why?

Son: Because I am a true Muslim who hates America.
Dad: But only last week you wanted to go to Disney Land.

Son: That’s different.
Dad: How come?

Son: Mickey Mouse is Muslim.
Dad: No, he isn’t.

Son: Is so. He converted when he heard azaan on the moon.
Dad: On the moon?

Son: Yes. Because the earth is flat and…
Dad: What??

Son: The earth iss…
Dad: I heard that!

Son: Daddy, do you want to see my science project, or not?
Dad: Gosh, that bomb? But your science teacher will fail you.

Son: No, she won’t.
Dad: Really?

Son: Yes. I plan to blow her up as well.
Dad: God, what is wrong with you? Go call your mother!

Son: She can’t come.
Dad: Why not?

Son: I’ve locked her in the kitchen.
Dad: But what for?

Son: A woman’s place is in the kitchen. I will not let her out until she covers herself up properly!
Dad: But she’s your mother!

Son: She’s also a woman!
Dad: So?

Son: So she should be hidden.
Dad: Hidden from whom?

Son: The whole world and Tony.
Dad: Tony?

Son: Yes, Tony.
Dad: But Tony’s a cat.

Son: Yes. But he’s male.
Dad: Son, have you gone mad?

Son: No. By the way, I’ve made sure Kitto starts covering up as well.
Dad: Kitto?

Son: Yes, Kittto.
Dad: But Kitto’s a cat!

Son: Yes. But a female cat.
Dad: But she’ll suffocate.

Son: Oh, she’s already dead.
Dad: What?

Son: She’s already dead.
Dad: I heard that! But how?

Son: I buried her alive.
Dad: You what?

Son: Yes. To avenge Tony’s honour. But now I will behead Tony.
Dad: But why?

Son: To save mom’s honour!
Dad: Oh, God!

Son: Don’t say that. Always say Allah.
Dad: What’s the difference?

Son: Daddy, do you want to be beheaded too?
Dad: No!

Son: Do you want to be stoned to death?
Dad: No!

Son: Do you want to be flogged?
Dad: No!

Son: Do you want to get your arms chopped off?
Dad: No!

Son: Then stop asking silly questions. By the way, I won’t call you daddy anymore.
Dad: What will you call me then?

Son: Whatever that is Arabic for daddy.
Dad: I don’t know any Arabic, son.

Son: That’s because you are a kafir.
Dad: Who the heck are you to tell me who I am, you little fascist twit!

Son: What’s a fascist?
Dad: An irrational, violent, self-righteous mad man!

Son: W… aaaaaaa…
Dad: Why are you crying?

Son: You scolded me.
Dad: Okay, I’m sorry. You have to be tolerant and rational, son. Now be a good boy and go read a book instead of watching TV.

Son: I have no books.
Dad: Of course, you do. I bought you so many books.

Son: I burned them.
Dad: What?

Son: I burned them.
Dad: But why?

Son: They were all in English.
Dad: So?

Son: It’s a non-Muslim language!
Dad: But we are speaking English, aren’t we?

Son: W… aaaaaaa…
Dad: What now?

Son: Zionists made me forget my Arabic.
Dad: But you never knew any Arabic, son.

Son: W… aaaa… yes, I did until you and mommy gave me the polio dropss… aaaaa…

Dad: Okay, tell me, can you do me a favour?

Son: Sure, dad.

Dad: Can you blow up something for me?
Son: Oh, goody! Of course, dad. What should I blow? A CD shop, a hotel, a school…?

Dad: No, no, something a lot more sinister.
Son: Mom?

Dad: No, no…
Son: What then?

Dad: The TV set!
Son: What?

Dadd: Blow the TV set.
Son: I heard that! But why?

Dad: Just do it!
Son: I see. Dad?

Dad: Yes.
Son: You’re so unconstitutional!

(By. Nadeem F Paracha)

What is the moral of this ‘conversation between a kid and his father’? Any moral; any lesson?

There is a lesson for ‘political Pakistan’ – the neighbor of India and `cultural Pakistan’ within India. This lesson is:

  1. Use your commonsense to come out of the darkness, whatever its source may be;
  2. Move forward; live in peace; let others live in peace; co-exist in this already volatile world;
  3. You are the inheritors of a great past, be proud of your past and cherish it; do not befool yourselves by believing that your past history was a period of ignorance – “Jahilya Daur”; that your ancestors – Porush (who fought Alexander) or Ashoka or Milind ( in Greek Menandros) – were Jahils;
  4. History does not go backward, it moves towards future; be wise, look around to your country, your children, your future and move forward to the light and not backward to the darkness;
  5. To appreciate this reality, you require only commonsense and nothing else.

Serbian People Came From India With Trinity Gods ‘Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva’!!!

Serbian Irish
(Note: This article is borrowed with thanks from HERE:)
Triglav , Trojan, Trinity, Trimurti, Agni

The book of Veles has this riddle:

Jer tajna je velika, kako to Svarog biva u isto vreme i Perun i Svetovid.

Translated into English it means:

Because it is a great secret how come Svarog (hevenly and earthly fire) is at the same time Perun (thunder) and Svetovid (Sun).

The answer to this riddle is Triglav (three headed), trojan (triple), Hromi daba, Crom Dubh – Lugh, Grom Div, The Thunder Giant, The Sky Father.

According to Branibor (now Brandenburg ) chronicles written in 1136 ad, the ruler of the area, Prince Pribislav destroyed a statue of Triglav after he was baptized. This statue of Triglav has previously been highly respected. No detailed description of the statue survived, and there is no description of rituals related to the veneration of this Statue. The only information that the chronicle gives us is that the God had three heads.

In the biographies of the Bishop Otto fon Bramburg, who converted Western Slavs (Sorbs) in the South Baltic, in Pomerania we can find more information about the god Triglav (Dabog, Hromi Daba). All three biographers ( Ebo , Herbord and an unnamed monk from the monastery of Priflinger ) have witnessed the existence of a three-headed idol in Volyn and Šćećin. Ebo said that the city of Volin is situated on the slopes of three hills, and that it has a temple dedicated to a deity with three heads, which was called God Triglav („…deo Triglavo dicitus, tricapitum habebat…“). According to Ebo, Triglav is the highest Slavic God ( ” summus Deus ” ), the ruler of the three worlds (heaven , earth and the underworld). The statue was made of wood, that it’s three heads were encrusted in silver, and that it’s heads were covered with the “tiara” or some kind of a hat made of gold, which covered the idol’s eyes.

In the town of Stettin were three hills, the central one being dedicated to Triglav, the chief local deity. This idol was of gold and had three heads, while its eyes and lips were covered with a golden veil. The pagan priests declared that Triglav (“Three-Heads”) was tricephalous because he wished to make it known that he ruled over three realms, i. e., heaven, earth, and the underworld; and he covered his face because he would not see the sins of men. The temple of Triglav was built with wonderful skill. On the inner and outer sides of the walls were various embossed figures of men, birds, and animals, so well made that they seemed to live and breathe. Their colour was always fresh and durable, and could be damaged neither by rain nor by snow. According to the custom of the ancestors one tenth of all booty was stored in the treasury of the temple, and there was, moreover, an abundance of gold and silver vessels used by the chieftains on festive occasions, as well as daggers, knives, and other rare, costly, and beautiful objects. In honour of and in homage to the gods colossal horns of wild bulls, gilded and adorned with precious stones, were kept there, some serving for drinking vessels, and some for musical instruments.

Otto von Bamberg destroyed the idols, by chopping the heads off with an axe. He then sent the three silver coated heads to the pope Calixto II in Rome, as evidence that his mission of converting Polabian Slavs (Sorbs) was successful.  In Szczecin Bishop Otto fon Bamberg did manage to destroy the temple dedicated to Triglav, but the priests removed the statue of God which was entirely made of gold and managed to hide it in a hollow tree near the city. It is said that the Bishop did not manage to find this statue.

Same authors ( Ebo , Herbord and monk from Priflinger) tell us that the animal dedicated to god Triglav was a black horse , which was used for divination. Triglav was also associated with spear and sword and was considered to be one of Slavic war gods. Some reports say that Triglav had three goats heads.

Among thousands of Serbian folk songs and ceremonial prayer songs collected by ethnologists during 19th century, we find many which talk about Triglav. The description of god Triglav from Serbian folk tradition corresponds closely to references to Triglav which we find in the Book of Veles. They both identify Triglav as main deity and the oldest deity that there is.

From the book: “Триглав у старим српским народним песмама и молитвама“:

… Ti junaci mladi hrabri,
Velji vojni Triglavovi,
Triglavovi silna Boga,
Silna Boga najvećega,
Boga stara Pra Pra Boga…

Translated into English this means:

…Those heroes young and brave
great solders of Triglav
Triglav, the mighty god
Triglav the greatest god
Triglav the “pra pra” (oldest) god…

Book of Veles:

…Molimo se i klanjamo se prvom Triglavu i njemu veliku slavu pojemo…To je suština Triglava jer svi od njega potiču i njemu se opet vraćaju…

Translated into English this means:

We are praying to and we are bowing in front the first Triglav and we are singing great praises to him…This is the essence of Triglav, because all there is comes from him and all to him returns…

The following excerpts are from the book called “Pesme i obicaji ukupnog naroda srpskog” meaning Songs and Customs of all Serbian people. This is a collection of ceremonial songs collected throughout the Balkans in the 19th century by ethnographer M.S.Milojevic. Serbian folk tradition tells us that Triglav is the ruler of all space and all time. He is the god of three worlds: the sky , the earth and the underworld.

…Sa njegove tri velike glave,
Sa tri glave velikim Triglavom,
Što mi drma svetom tim prebelim,
Na sve strane i ta sva vremena…

Translated into English this means:

…With his great three heads
With three heads the great Triglav
shakes (rules) this white world
In all directions and in all times…

This next song tells us that Triglav is also the god of the past the present and future.

…Silen bora Triglavomu,
Što mi sedit, ni zboruva,
Dlgo mnogo što minuva,
Dlgo mnogo što ća bidne,
Dlgo mnogo što živue,
De im imat do tri sili,
Prva sila na nebesa,
Druga sila na pod zemje,
A treća mi na ta zemja…

Translated into English this means:

Mighty god Triglav
Who decides
What happened
What will happen
what is happening
And who has three forces
First in the sky
Second under the ground
And third on the ground…

Serbian folk tradition tells us that Triglav is the holy trinity. This means that for Serbs, Triglav is “the holy god, father, son and holy spirit”.

This next song, talks about the passing of the flower wreath, from St George (Yarilo, 6th of May, young sun, beginning of summer), to St John (21 of Jun, the summer solstice, middle of summer), to St peter (July), to Triglav (2nd of August, end of summer). The flower wreath represents the sun during spring and summer months. Triglav here is actually St Elijah. His feast day (2nd of August) falls at the end of Summer when sun’s heat is at its maximum. St Elijah is known i Serbia as Sveti Ilija (Sveti can mean saint but also shining) the thunderer, which shows that in Serbian tradition the Sun is associated with the thunde. St Elijah is actually Svetli Ilios, Shining Thundering Sun, Perun and his day is 2nd of August, Crom dubh – Lugh day, Perun day.

…Ivanjsko cveće petranjsko,
Petrovsko cveće ivanjsko!
Ivan ga bere te bere.
Petar ga plete te plete.
Daje ga silnu Triglavu,
Triglavu svetoj trojici…

Translated into English this means:

St John’s flowers to St Petar’s flowers
St John picks the flowers
St Petar makes wreath from them
And gives the wreath to mighty Triglav
Triglav the holy trinity…

This is another song which refers to Triglav as the holy trinity:

…Ko prevari svoga druga,
Svoga druga pobratima 
Satreo ga silni Ljelju:
Svojim ocem strašnim Bogom.
Strašnim Bogom Triglav Bogom, 
Triglavom svetom Trojicom…

Translated into English this means:

…Who betrays a friend
A friend or a blood brother
May mighty Ljelju (Perun) destroy him
With his father terible god
Terible god Triglav
Triglav the holy trinity…

This next song tells us that Triglav is the Creator, the Protector and the Destroyer of everything that there was, there is and that there will be:

…Naš gospodar Trigljav velji, 
Naš Stvoritelj i Držitelj 
I veliki Umoritelj…

Translated into English this means:

…Our lord Triglav the great
Our creator, our protector (upholder, maintainer) 
and our great destroyer…

And this song tells us that Triglav is the highest god, the greatest god and that he is the three headed trinity, at the same time the Creator, the Protector and the Destroyer:

…Veliča smo Višnjega!
Previšnjega i jasnjega! 
Triglav Boga najvećeg. 
Svetu Trojcu najjasnu. 
Stvoriteljicu najjaču. 
Održateljicu najkrepku. 
Rušiteljicu najstrašnu….

Translated into English this means:

…We celebrated Višnjega (The high god, the sky god)
The highest and the brightest
God Triglav the greatest
Holy trinity the shiniest
Creator, the strongest
protector (upholder, maintainer), the most robust
Destroyer, the most terrible…

This next ceremonial song (prayer) actually identifies, gives names to the three faces of Triglav:

…Da nam stoka bude zdrava
Ta goveda i te ovce
Ti jarići i jaganjci.
Doratasti velji konji
Što no nose te junake
Mile borce Triglav bora5
Triglav bora te Troice
Višnjeg boga Stvoritelja
Jakog Žive rušitelja
I Branjanja Branitelja…

Translated into English this means:

…May our cattle be healthy
All the cows and all the sheep
All the kids and all the lambs
All the great big horses
Which carry our heroes
Dear solders of the god Triglav
god Triglav the holy trinity
Vishnji god, the creator
Strong Živa the destrojer

and Branjanj the protector…

In Indian mythology, Trimurti consists of Vishnu, Shiva, and Brahma. In Serbian mythology, Triglav consists of Višnji, Živa, Branjanj.

In Serbian the meanings of the names of the holy trinity (Trimurti, Triglav) members (Višnji, Živa, Branjanj) actually correspond to their role in Serbian Trinity:

Vishnji (meaning “one who is up high”, from vis “high”), the sun.
Branjanj (meaning the protector, supporter, from bran “protection”, braniti “to protect”), the fire.
Živa (meaning alive, living from Živ “alive, life”), the giver and taker of life.

Serbian folk tradition also tells us that Triglav lives in India and that India was the home of the Serbs, which Serbs had to leave because of a huge political or religious upheaval of some kind, probably a religious civil war which plunged India into chaos.

How old is this folk memory? What time and what migration from India to Europe does it describe? We don’t know for sure. The racial memory these folk songs preserve could either be the memory of the original migration of the “Indo Europeans” to Europe, or the Skythian migration to Europe or any other one in between or after. Either way they are thousands of years old. The fact that Serbs have preserved, in their folk tradition, the memory of the migration from India through all these millenniums, is astounding, and another proof that culture and language are a lot more resistant then most people think. The fact that some of the songs recorded by ethnographers are actually prayers to Triglav, is even more amazing. This means that Serbs have managed to preserve the actual Agni (Triglav) cult for thousands of years outside of India.

Here is one of the folk songs which tells the story about the Serbian exodus from India. The song is called “The saints are dividing the treasure” and in it Ognjena Marija (Fiery Mary) sister of St Petar, St Nicolas, St John, St Ilia and St Pantelija tells her brothers why she is crying:

Al’ govori Blažena Marija:

A moj brate, Gromovnik Ilija!

Kako ne ću suze proljevati,
Kad ja idem iz zemlje Inđije,
Iz Inđije iz zemlje proklete?
U Inđiji teško bezakonje:
Ne poštuje mlađi starijega,
Ne slušaju đeca roditelja;
Roditelji porod pogazili,
Crn im bio obraz na divanu
Pred samijem Bogom istinijem!
Kum svog kuma na sudove ćera,
I dovede lažljive svjedoke
I bez vjere i bez čiste duše,
I oglobi kuma vjenčanoga,
Vjenčanoga ili krštenoga;
A brat brata na mejdan zaziva;
Đever snasi o sramoti radi,
A brat sestru sestrom ne doziva.
Translated into English this means:
…And kind Mary (Holy Mary) replies:
O my brother, Thunder god Ilija
how can i not cry
when i am coming from country of India
from India the accursed country.
In India there is complete lawlessness:
young are not respecting the old,
children are not respecting parents,
they have black cheeks before the god of truth,
a godfather is betraying godson,
brother is fighting brother,
brother in law is sleeping with sister in law,
and brother does not call his sister a sister…
And here is another song, which is actual Christmas time ceremonial prayer song (Winter solstice, the birth of young sun). This is one of the songs collected by Vuk Stef. Karadžić. Srpske narodne pesme, Knjiga druga, u kojoj su pjesme junačke najstarije.
Siva Živa siva silna,
Siva silna golubice!
da kuda si putovala?
Odgovara Siva Živa
Siva silna golubica:
„Ja sam tamo putovala
U Inđiju našu zemlju.
Prolećela Hindušana
I tu Globu Tartariju
Crni Hinduš i Tartaru.
Letila sam Gospodaru
Našem silnom Triglav boru
Te gledala što nam čini
Što nam čini zapoveda.”
Što činjaše naš gospodar,
Naš gospodar Triglav velji,
Naš Stvoritelj i Držitelj
I veliki Umoritelj?
Odgovori Siva Živa
Bela silna golubica:
„Naš gospodar lepo čini
Trima kola u zučinje
I četvrto zlato meri.
Da pravimo zlatne čaše
Zlatne čaše i srebrne
Da molimo mladog Boga
I Božića Svarožića
Da nam dade svako dobro
Ponajveće dugi život.
Dugi život dobro zdravlje
I bogatstvo što ga nosi.
Božić poje po svu zemlju
Ne boji se Hindušana
Niti crnog Tatarana
Ni goleme te pustare
A proklete Globe crne
Globe crne Tartarije,
I te gadne Mandžurije.
Slava mu je do nebesa,
Do prestola Triglav Boga.
Brada mu je do pojasa,
Do pojasa sredi zemlje
Srpske zemlje Raške svetle.
Da se rode muška deca
Ljuti vojni Davorovi
Davorovi i Jarila
Translated into English this means:
…gray Živa, mighty gray,
mighty gray dove!
where did you travel?
and gray Živa, mighty gray dove, answers:
“I traveled all the way
To India our country.
I flew over Hindustan
And over Tatarstan
Black Hindus and Tatarus.
I flew to our Master
Our mighty God Triglav
And I watched what he was doing
What he was doing and ordering.”
What did our lord do
Our master Great Triglav,
Our Creator and Maintainer
And Great Destroyer?
Replies gray Živa, 
White mighty dove: 
“Our Lord is doing good…
He is weighing gold
for us to make the gold cups
Gold and silver cups
So we can pray to the young God
Young God Svarožić (Winter solstice sun, baby sun, Dabog, the Giving god)
To give us everything good
Most of all long life.
Long life good health
And wealth that God Dabog carries with him.
Young god Svarožić (Dabog) sings in all the land
He is not afraid of Hindustan
Neither is he afraid of black Tataria
Nor the immense wasteland
A bloody black Globa
black Globa Tataria (I don’t know what Globa means, but it could be Gobi desert),
And that nasty Manchuria.
His Glory (Dabog’s) rises to the skies,
All the way to the throne of God Triglav.
His beard is down to his waist,
To his waist which is in the center of the land
The Serbian bright land of Ras.
May it (Serbia, Ras) give birth to male children
Great solders of Davor
Of Davor (God of War) and of Yarilo (God o youth and war)…
It is incredible to think that Serbs managed to preserve the memory of their life in India and the belief in Triglav, Trimurti and to preserve its worship in the middle of Europe until 20th century.
There were some subtle differences though between Indian Trimurti and Serbian Triglav. In Indian mythology, Brahma is the creator whereas that role in Serbian Triglav is played by Vishnji bog (Vishnu). Both Shiva and Živa seemed to have the same role in both Trinities.I decided to go and investigate the whole thing more. Why was there a difference? Who got it right and who got it wrong? And who brought Crom Dubh – Lugh, the three headed god to Ireland? I will talk about this in one of my next posts.

Birthday of Sambhaji – Know Your History!

(This article is borowed with thanks from ‘@trueindology’)

Today, the 14th May, is the Birthday of the great Hindu king Sambhaji Maharaj. After the death of Shivaji in 1680, his 23 year old eldest son Sambhaji ascended the Maratha throne.

Aurangzeb was greatly relieved at the news of Shivaji’s death.

By 1681, Aurangzeb reached Burhanpur intending to uproot Maratha race, destroy temples, crush Hindu resistance for good and go back to Delhi as victor within 1 year.

The most powerful and richest person in the world came with 5 Lakh Mughal troops, largest army in the world.

But Aurangzeb had little idea he’d spend next 27 years of his life in Deccan and would ultimately fail his objective and meet a sad death.

Aurangzeb also enlisted the services of Sidis (African slaves) and Portuguese who attacked Marathas from West while Mughals attacked them from North and East.

Sambhaji was encircled and death of newly formed kingdom of Shivaji, the hope of millions of Hindus, was imminent. But he would fight fire with fire. His small bands of soldiers dispersed and battled them in all directions.

In his first year, he invited subedar Bahadur Khan for a battle.

In 1682, Mughal army at Ramsej (Nasik) was defeated and repulsed by Marathas. This defeat dealt a death blow to the Aurangzeb’s prestige.

In 1683,Sambhaji attacked Portuguese Goa and successfully captured Ponda fort. He was on his way to annihilate Portuguese traces in India for the good.

Just then, Mughals came in support of Portuguese and attacked Sambhaji from East. Heavily outnumbered and encircled, Sambhaji still managed to hold onto his territories and invaded/successfully raided Mughal-held Gujarat in 1685.

Even the Mughal base at Aurangabad was not safe from the Maratha forces.

At that time, Sambhaji invited other Hindu kings to join his dharmayuddha.He wrote to them:

“We can’t bear the persecution Aurangzeb is inflicting upon Hindus. We’ll sacrifice our lives to capture Aurangzeb so we can practice our religion without molestation. Muster courage and nothing can stop us.”

In his short reign of 9 years, Sambhaji and his troops ruling over a tiny territory of Konkan had atleast 15 battles with Portuguese and 69 battles with Mughals.

That they still held on is one of the greatest stories of Hindu resistance.

In 1689, Mughal troops suddenly fell upon a resting Sambhaji and captured him. He was  put on a ‘wooden cap’ on his head as the token of a condemned criminal and his trusted followers were dressed as buffoon and paraded. Their wife and daughters were captured and enslaved.

Aurangzeb offered to spare Sambhaji’s life if
1) He converted to Islam;
2) Surrendered forts, men and treasures.

“I wont convert to Islam even if Aurangzeb offered his daughter to me” thundered Sambhaji.

Sambhaji’s eyes were plucked out. His tongue was cut out. His skin was peeled with tiger paws. After a fortnight’s physical torture, his limbs were hacked into pieces and fed to dogs.

“Maasir I Alamgiri” is the official Mughal-sponsored history record of Aurangzeb and the photos of some of the pages of its English translated version are given here.

While describing ISIS-like punishments meted out to “Kafir” Sambhaji with glee, it says Aurangzeb did it “out to his devotion to Islam so that Muslims might be heartened and (Hindu) infidels disheartened”.”
