  1. Hindu perspective of the Hurricane Sandy and it’s relation to their faith.  In the Bhagavad GIta there is a story concerning a village that was devastated by a storm similar to hurricane Sandy.  Now I know why he is called “the lifter of the hill.”  It is also weird because Kartik is a sacred month that started on the 31st and that is the first day the hurricane hit.  Coincidence?

Inda nationalist group insists that the cricket games with Pakistan be canceled.  In 2006, there was a bombing in Mumbai that resulted in the death of 166 people and only seven people have been charged with planning the bombing.  The nationalist group claims that to play against Pakistan would be betraying their own country.
