Re: Christianity in India watch thread

Third in series of controversies of early Christian history by Bart D Ehrman. Again, things are only points that I remember why listening to the series. This one is specifically more pertinent because it deals with Thomas, supposedly twin brother to Jesus himself. Protestant Christian beliefs have n...

Re: Pakistan - News & Discussion 2021

What does anybody really think with regard to the incoming Biden administration and its re-engagement with Pakistan? The only thing that I supported trump was regard to his policies with Pakistan as well as the Islamic world. However, he did far more damage here in the US locally. Now that he is gon...

Re: Nepal and Himalayan News and Discussion 2021

So KP Oli has been a much ejected by the Prachanda faction from the party. He will still of course retain his own support base and likely this would lead to fracturing of the national Communist Party into two different Communist Party’s again. Unfortunately, it seems that from the last elections the...

They are hoping and will most likely create confrontation with Delhi police. While they may state that they will use the outer roads ...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 4

It would be unfortunate, if the government has really caved into the farmer demands of holding the farm laws for approximately one to one and half years. The only thing that I can really think is that with the Bengal elections coming, the focus is really now on election mode. But then again, every y...

Ongoing vaccine politics In India. I think that Modi did the right thing in getting to push the vaccines as early as he can. This includes Covaxin without announcing to phase 3 trial data. I’m sure that the data will come and show positive efficacy hopefully in the 80+ percent range. Over the last m...
