Why is Lord Shiva associated with Bhang? Does Lord Shiva & Bhaang/cannabis or marijuana have a connection? Mahashivratri !

Does Lord Shiva consume Bhang/Bhaang or marijuana on Mahashivratri as propagated & believed by many? MahaShivratri, Lord Shiva & Bhaang - swapnilized.blogspot This is propagated by people who want to satiate their cardinal desires of indulging in drugs, by using the support of a defensive argument saying even ‘Lord Shiva accepts Bhang’. It's kind of a subconscious authentication process which we are all aware of. Visualize this- someone whom we idolize like MS Dhoni, starts endorsing a soft drink or energy drink, starts endorsing a specific brand of toothpaste, body spray, deodorant etc. What do we do next? We start drinking that brand of soft drink in summer when we are thirsty, start using that body spray; even though it might be costly and less effective than other available established brands of the same product, than the product endorsed by MS Dhoni. Dhoni may have never used the toothpaste, deo, body spray, soft drink ever. He may not have even tasted the

What is CAA full form or Citizenship Amendment Act? What is CAB or Citizenship Amendment Bill? Is CAB anti-muslim? Why are muslims opposing CAB?

Is Citizenship Amendment Bill(CAB) anti muslim? NO. CAA full form is Citizenship Amendment Act does NOT in any way rip the citizenship status of any of the existing citizens of India. Do the muslims, who are already living in India, need to fear the CAB? NO. What is Citizenship Amendment Bill(CAB)? CAB is now an act which was passed by both the Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha in December 2019. The use of CAB is to allow the persecuted & victimized minorities, which is the Hindus, in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan an easy & fast-tracked access to Indian citizenship. That's all! Here the explanation is in a normal language which would be hopefully easy to understand for any common man. The CAB in no way threatens the citizenship status of muslims who have been Indian citizens or those who were born and continue to live peacefully in India. The CAB bill was discussed, debated & passed by a majority ruling in the Lok Sabha & the Rajya Sabha. In

As a Hindu, when did I stop being secular? Why do muslims insult Hindus & Hindu Gods?

Image
I stopped being secular when I heard the hate speech of Akbaruddin Owaisi of Hyderabad. He gave many such speeches. Two of which I am pointing out here:- 1) In 1 speech he threatened Hindus saying he & his muslims can handle and possibly annihilate(kill) all the 100 crore Hindus in India. 2) He insulted Lord Ram . You can find the video links and see the videos yourself on the Internet. Apart from Owaisi, I co-incidentally got to hear a few Zakir Naik videos in which he used to openly insult Hindus & Hindu Gods. He used to challenge the Hindus & constantly question the faith of Hindus asking them to prove that Lord Ganesha is a God. And this used to be aired on satellite television. I am born and brought up in Mumbai. I had a fair number of muslim friends(males as well as females) while growing up. When I used to visit their houses, in childhood during school days, I used to feel that their family is not really opening up and maintaining a distance. Their inte

Why is Rishabh Pant being given so many chances in the Indian cricket team?

What could be the reason that Rishabh Pant is being given so many chances in the Indian cricket team? Why is Rishabh Pant selected in Indian cricket team(ODI & T20). I started following cricket in the early nineties after Sachin Tendulkar made his debut. Sachin used to play exciting cricket and was absolutely like a breath of fresh air. Since the early nineties till today, the fag end of 2019, I have followed Indian cricket. I don't remember anyone being given as many chances in the playing eleven of Indian cricket team as Rishabh Pant has got. The intent is not to ridicule a cricketer or put a question mark on someone's ability and talent.  But having followed Indian cricket religiously, I can't stop myself from feeling sorry for Sanju Samson, the other wicket keeper who was selected in the team apart from Rishabh and did not get a look in. Neither in the previous series nor in the 3 T20's that India has played against the West Indies at home in December

How to get rid of toothache? Toothache at NIT Surat & IIT-Mandi. Natural remedies for toothache & dental problems

Image
We have all experienced it. Excruciating pain in our tooth/teeth. It could be due to any reason for eg. tooth decay, cavity formed in teeth or some other possible complications. I would say one of the luckiest people on this planet would have never experienced tooth ache in their lives. First let me list out all the possible natural remedies that I have tried:- 1) Gargling with luke warm salt water, specially during mild toothache & just after dinner. The water should be at tolerable temperature for the insides of your mouth. In a glass-full of water, mix around 1 table spoon of salt. For best results use natural salt in granular form. If natural salt is not available use processed salt which you use for cooking. 2) Cleaning the teeth & cavities with brush & then munching/chewing tender neem leaves & keeping the saliva/juice in mouth for atleast half an hour. This procedure should be done at least 4-5 times a week just before going to sleep at night, if no
