Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Will Durant American historian has written glowingly about Hindu art: From the time of Mohenjodaro to the present, through the vicissitudes of five thousand years, India has been creating its peculiar type of beauty in a hundred arts. The record is broken and incomplete, not because India ever rested, but because war and the idol-smashing ecstasies of Moslems destroyed uncounted masterpieces of building and statuary, and poverty neglected the preservation of others.
Probably no other nation known to us has ever had so exuberant a variety of arts. At Elephanta the Portuguese certified their piety by smashing statuary and bas-reliefs in unrestrained barbarity; and almost everywhere in the north the Moslems brought to ground those triumphs of Indian architecture, of the 5th and 6th centuries, which tradition ranks as far superior to the later works that arouse our wonder and admiration today.
The Moslems decapitated statues, and tore them limb from limb; they appropriated for their mosques, and in great measure imitated, the graceful pillars of the Jain temples. Ferguson had counted some thirty southern temples any one of which, in his estimate, must have cost as much as an English cathedral. Here, Ferguson adds, “the artistic combination of horizontal and vertical lines, and the play of outline and of light and shade, far surpass anything in Gothic art.
The effects are just what the medieval architects were often aiming at, but which they never attained so perfectly as was done at Halebid. But this was a common achievement of the Hindu artisans. At Ellora, a place of religious pilgrimage.. Here the tireless builder cut a hundred feet down into the stone to isolate the block – by feet – that was to be the temple; then they carved the walls into powerful pillars, statues and bas-reliefs; then they chiseled out of the interior, and lavished there the most amazing art: Finally, their architectural passion still unspent, they carved a series of chapels and monasteries deep into the rock of three sides of the quarry.

What commends it Quran so powerfully to the historian is its authenticity, not as the Word of God, of course, as the Muslims believe but as the secular historian cannot and should not, but rather as a document attesting to what Muhammad said at that time and place, early seventh-century Mecca. It is not a transcript, however; our present Quran is the result of an edition prepared under the orders of Uthman Those Uthmanic clues are fragmentary, however, and large ‘invented’ portions might well have been added to our Quran or authentic material deleted.
So it has been charged in fact by some Muslims who failed to find in the present Quran any explicit reference to the designation of a successor to the Prophet and so have alleged tampering with the original texts. But the argument is so patently tendentious and the evidence adduced for the fact so exiguous that few have failed to be convinced that what is in our copy of the Quran is in fact what Muhammad taught, and is expressed in his own words.
Muhammad, according to tradition, recited perfectly what the angel Gabriel revealed to him for his companions to write down and memorize.

All other Brahmin Gotras evolved from one of the above Gotras. What this means is that the descendants of these Rishis over time started their own Gotras. The total number of established Gotras today is However each of them finally trace back to one of the root Gotrakarin Rishi. So Gotra means Cowshed, where in the context is that Gotra is like the Cowshed protecting a particular male lineage.

Introduction Rather than provide a comprehensive history of the area or its discovery and exploration by the west, the main purpose of this section is to provide an overview that ties together my books and reading on these topics. It is as much for my own benefit as for any third party reader. It is a guide which is hopefully easier to navigate than a list of book titles. If you want to go deeper into the history of exporation in China and Tibet, then I highly recommend the complementary pages of Matthias Claus on “Reisen und Abenteuer in China und Tibet.
One page is a comprehensive annotated chronology of exploration of China and Tibet from – , and the other covers the same material, but is organized alphabetically, by person. These pages are in German. I also highly recommend spending time on the web site of the British Library. See for example the Aid for Researchers page and associated links on Afghanistan: Since the topic is so broad, it is difficult to recommend any single book that covers the literature or the scope of my interests.

One of the most common insecurities among brown guys asking for game advice is that non-brown girls and in particular, white girls are racist against brown men in terms of dating. Now I want all of you to picture the most stereotypically racist type of person you can think of in the Western world. A young, urban, single white women probably came to mind.

So the church had another method of destroying the ancient traditions by Christianizing the traditional pagan festivals and legends. For example Easter and Christmas are really old pagan festivals but now Christianized. This was the art of inculturation which still continues and Hinduism being its biggest target.
When India came under the British Empire the native Indians had to be colonised and made subservient to that empire. So the colonial education programme was started and at the forefront of this were educationists who were also christian missionaries who applied the art of inculturation. To keep up with European colonial race theories Indians were divided under the fictional north Aryan and south Dravidian races.
