"It is the mercy of my Satguru that has made me to know the unknown;
I have learned from Him how to walk without feet,
to see without eyes,
to hear without ears,
to drink without mouth,
to fly without wings;
I have brought my love and my meditation
into the land where there is no sun and moon,
nor day and night.
Without eating, I have tasted of the sweetness of nectar;
and without water, I have quenched my thirst.
Where there is the response of delight,
there is the fullness of joy.
Before whom can that joy be uttered?
Kabir says: 'The Guru is great beyond words,
and great is the good fortune of the disciple.'"
-- Kabir, Songs of Kabir, Rabindranath Tagore translation
"Seeing without eyes
Hearing without ears
Walking without feet
Working without hands
Uttering His Name without tongue
And dying while living
Is accepting His Will."
-- Guru Angad
“What your own eyes cannot see,
your human ears do not hear,
your physical hands can not touch,
and what is inconceivable to the human mind —
that I will give to you!"
-- Yeshua, Gospel of Thomas, Saying 17

> A judge has handed down an order which requires ISPs in India to permanently block The Pirate Bay, RARBG, Torrentz2, 1337x, FMovies, and several similar sites. The order further suggests that if users in India continue accessing pirated content, they could be hit with emails, popups, and fines.

First of all, LOL!
Now, My Question is, were there any " #VideoGames " in the market when last 3 wars happened between India-China and India-Pakistan in past 70 years? Was there any video games in market when #WorldWar II started in 1939?
It's never video games or guns to blame but, your mentality as Human and Shietty Social System.
When will this " all blame to the video games and guns " mentality of #middle aged and #aged people and #sjws will end? It's just illogical and ridiculous!
#Video Games and #Guns should never be blamed and banning them never solves any problem! Did banning guns solved and reduced crimes to Zero in India? No, 'cuz it never does. It's your mentality and shietty social system that needs fixing and not video games or guns.
I played #Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer way before this all #PUBG bullsh!tt started. It had the similar finish the opponent theme. If you want to fix the society, lift and remove the cast system from #india forever within one day and apply universal marriage law regardless of religion and gender ( thus remove 'talaq' laws).

বাংলাঃ বাঁকুড়া'র সাবরাকোন থেকে শঙ্খ অধিকারী নামক এক ব্যক্তি ৯ই এপ্রিল, ২০১৯ -এর আনন্দবাজার পত্রিকায় " সম্পাদক সমীপেষু " কলমে ভিডিও গেমস কিভাবে সমাজ ও যুব সমাজের মানসিকতায় প্রভাব ফেলছে এবং কিভাবে এর পরিণতি হতে পারে হিংসাত্মক ... এমনকি যুদ্ধ ডেকে আনতে পারে।
প্রথমতঃ লোল !! (না দিয়ে পারলাম না)
এখন, আমার প্রশ্ন হল, গত ৭০ বছরে যে ৩ টি ভারত-পাকিস্তান, ভারত-চীন যুদ্ধ হয়েছে, তখন সেই সময়ে কি বাজারে কোনও ভিডিও গেমস ছিল?
আচ্ছা, ১৯৩৯ সালে যখন দ্বিতীয় বিশ্বযুদ্ধ শুরু হয় ... তখন কি বাজারে কোন ভিডিও গেমস ছিল?
তাই, শঙ্খ অধিকারী মহাশয়, যে বিষয়ে জানেন না... সে বিষয়ে আলফাল বকবেন না!! আগে নিজের মানসিকতা ঠিক করুন তাঁর পর ভিডিও গেমস আর বন্দুক অধিকার নিয়ে কথা বলতে আসবেন!!!
কবে আপনাদের মত মধ্যবয়সী ও বয়স্ক লোকেদের আর সোশ্যাল জাস্টিস ওয়ারিওরদের সব কিছুর জন্য ভিডিও গেমস আর বন্দুক অধিকার কে অযৌক্তিকভাবে দোষী সাব্যস্ত করার স্বভাব যাবে? কবে?
যা কিছু হিংসাত্মক, তার জন্য দায়ী আপনার মানসিকতা ও নোংরা ও ভুলভাল সামাজিক সিস্টেম , তার জন্য ভিডিও গেমস আর বন্দুক কে কোনওক্রমেই দায়ী করা যায়না।
বন্দুক অধিকার কেড়ে নেবার পর কি ভারতে অপরাধমূলক কাজকর্ম শুন্যতে এসে ঠেকেছে? না, কারণ এটা কোনও সমাধানই ছিল না।
আমি নিজে একসময় অতিরিক্ত মাত্রায় কল অফ ডিউটিঃ মডার্ন ওয়ারফেয়ার ৩ মাল্টিপ্লেয়ার খেলেছি এই সব প্লেয়ার আননোউন'স ব্যাটেলগ্রাউন্ডস এর বুলশিট শুরু হবার অনেক অনেক আগেই। দুটি গেমের থিমই কিছুটা এক, যে অপর টিমের প্লেয়ারদের আগে শেষ করতে হবে।
যদি আপনি সত্যিক সামাজিক সমস্যার সমাধান করতে চান, তবেঃ এক দিনের মধ্যে সমাজ থেকে জাতপাত এর ব্যবস্থা উপড়ে ফেলুন ও ধর্ম ও লিঙ্গ নির্বিশেষে এক সংযুক্ত আইনসম্মত বিবাহ আইন আনুন ( সেই সূত্রে 'তালাক' ব্যবস্থাকেও উৎপাটিত করুন!)
মনে রাখবেন, আপনার মানসিকতা ও অনৈতিক সামাজিক ব্যবস্থা সব সমস্যার জন্য দায়ী , ভিডিও গেমস ও বন্দুক কে কোনও কিছুর জন্যই দায়ী করা চলেনা।

On what is going to affect India's general election's outcome
Hindus comprise about 80% of India’s 1.3 billion people, so the BJP is invoking its Hindu nationalist roots, with Modi at the forefront against the threat of Pakistan, India’s Muslim-majority archrival.
Voting will take place in seven phases over six weeks beginning Thursday. Nearly 900 million people, including 15.9 million first-time voters, are eligible to cast ballots in the world’s largest democratic exercise. Around a million polling stations will be set up, and voters will choose 543 members of the Lower House of Parliament.
But anti-Muslim sentiment in India has become more common and more violent since the BJP came to power in 2014. At least three dozen Muslims have been lynched by self-styled Hindu vigilante groups or mobs on suspicion of illegally moving cows, sacred to Hindus, or eating beef, according to Human Rights Watch.

Indian girl's video of riding to school exam on horseback goes viral
A class 10th student Krishna from Kerala’s Thrissur was seen riding a horse to her board exam in school uniform. She wished to ride a horse to attend her Board exams. She said, "I don't go daily on horse. Only on some special days, or when I get bored and also during some exams. If you ask me what was special, on that day was the last day of my 10th board examination." "One of my friend said that riding horse is not that easy and it's not possible for a girl to do that. He said it is only possible for women like "Jhansi Ki Rani". So I thought why a normal girl can’t ride a horse."

So how rich was the Dutch East India Company?
If you’re wondering what paid for all those nice canals and houses in Amsterdam, Leiden and Utrecht. Well, this image might explain it all a bit.

Feel free to dive right into the things with us – it certainly wasn’t great for everyone!
The Dutch East-India Company – Apple Didn’t Have Nothing On It!
The “Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie” (VOC), better known as the Dutch East-India company was set up in 1602, head-quartered in the “Oost-Indisch Huis” (East-India House) in downtown Amsterdam – which still stands today. It was founded as a private merchant company that was granted a two decade long monopoly by the government for spice trading in Asia, in particular the Dutch East-Indies, known today as the Republic of Indonesia.
And if you think Amazon is thrifty with deliveries – the VOC sent over one million voyagers across Asia, which is more than the rest of Europe combined, in a time where a trip from Amsterdam to Batavia (Djakarta) would last no shorter than 8 to 10 months and many ships, or individual passengers, would never return. Many of the massive sailing ships perished in storms, fell prey to piracy or infectious disease. Traveling at the time came at a huge risk, but once on location and with the right knowledge and attitude there was a great chance of becoming wealthy and so many took the risk.
The company was also the first official company to issue stocks, which peaked during the Dutch “Tulip Mania”, a craze for tulip bulbs that is seen as the world’s first true financial bubble. The VOC’s stocks pushed the company’s worth to a massive 78 million Dutch guilders, which is a pretty solid business even today, but translates to a whopping $7,9 trillion dollar worth today… Yes, really, trillion. That’s 7,900 billion – or 79,000 million!
The Dutch are doing pretty good in modern times as well, different reasons why of course – Check out our youtube channel for more videos like this:
At it’speak the VOC was worth the equivalent of Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, ExxonMobil, Berkshire Hathaway, Tencent, and Wells Fargo put together! This means that the world’s most valuable company, Apple, is worth about 11% of the peak value of the VOC. Eat that, Steve Jobs!
It was also worth, roughly, the same amount as the GDP’s of Japan and Germany of today added together. Can you dig it?
The company also employed 70,000(!) people across the globe, making it a textbook multinational by definition, and this was nearly four centuries ago!

The Dutch East India Company was also pretty evil
Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games with the Dutch East India Company – despite bringing the Netherlands prosperity and successfully connecting the world it also brought horrendous suffering for an endless number of people. For two centuries long the VOC did whatever it had to make sure its assets were protected and profit was high.
That included slave trading, colonial oppression and absurd mistreatment of employees – if you think your job is tough today, try being a deckhand on a year and a half VOC-round trip or, even much worse, a slave living in semi-dark in the belly of the ship!
The VOC is thought to have transported, or rather ‘displaced’, as many as 50,000 people from Africa to serve or trade as slaves in its colonies. It’s a staggering number, worse however is that many countries subjected even more people to slavery per individual nation than the Dutch and VOC ever managed to, creating a permanent “involuntary” change in demographics around the globe. The success of international trading companies like the VOC has forever put a stain on Europe’s colonial past.

Regardless of its endless exploitation these trading companies, and colonies, have shaped the world and are at the foot of today’s ‘multiculturalism’ and the modern-day economy. Still many people are in denial about their country’s colonial past, Holland for one definitely gained its historic wealth and fortune over the heads of others, which is not to say that it’s the fault of the modern Dutchman – it’s hard to blame someone for something they never had a hand in. But denial or downplaying is flat out ignorant and inexcusable.
But it’s always wise to speak with some discretion to people of color, even in ‘multi-culti’ Holland, as the Indo- and Moluccan people are direct descendants of the VOC-days and black Surinam and Antillean-people are African slave descendants, their Hindu-counterparts having been ‘contract laborers’ from the Indian-subcontinent which was hardly better than being a slave.
Still, we hope you enjoyed this piece about the Dutch East India Company – and maybe sparked some curiosity about the Dutch trading spirit and their adventurous outset on becoming a world leader, but it would be irresponsible for us not to have mentioned the downsides that came with it. That much in the least is what every Dutchman owes the world, especially given that people of a colonial past are of such vital importance to modern Holland as we know it today.
