This forum is for those of our Indian audience who are not yet comfortable with the main forums. The purpose of the forum is to allow new Indian members to get a feel for how the site works, be guided by others, and eventually graduate to the main programming and discussion forums.
They were both Telugu origin Americans working for Garmin. Casually drinking in a bar, when 51 year old Adam Purinton (ex-Navy) shot at them, killing one and seriously wounding the other. A bar patron who tried to interfere also got shot at.
At least one witness reportedly heard the suspect yell “get out of my country” shortly before shooting men he thought were Middle Eastern.
It's extremely scary, indeed. I can't imagine how terrifying it must be for the Indian origin community (leave alone the middle-eastern/Muslim community).
This could quite quickly spiral down into a "gun laws" debate, but each time I hear a news like this, I'm terrified at the thought of living in the US. Strange as it might sound, I'm scared enough that I gave up on opportunities to move the US and moved down under instead.
What's interesting about your decision is that there was a time (7-10 years ago) where a lot of Indian people thought Australia was a racist place
Australia is a FABULOUS place, and make no mistake about it.
To put things into proper context, Australians[^] as such are awesome people, and I've had the opportunity to interact with, and work with a few people for a short duration.
A small minority of (predominantly) European/Caucasian immigrants and/or their descendants tend to be racist towards other immigrants and/or their descendants. But such things as physical violence and harm due to racism is not common and will be dealt with swiftly here.
But if you're talking about Australian Residents or Citizens as a whole, then it really is a mixed pot like Mumbai and is made up of people from all kinds of races and ethnicity. Most of them are extremely nice people, have an witty sense of humour, and are very fair in dealing with others (unlike many desi people) in general.
These guys are more dangerous than politicians. Here in TN, they're giving 'breaking' news every day but nothing like below recent news(important for nature) 1) Hydrocarbon project 2) Isha Yoga's .... (& Karunya University's ....). Google for more. Brief snapshot[^]
Already water shortage started some places before summer period. After 50 years, India would be like a desert without enough water. Real estate killed(still killing) Farming, Water, Nature, etc., Our great politicians, media, governments and people helped them to do that.
I quickly searched and understood there's a Hydrocarbon project proposed. Now, I don't pretend to have understood or read the whole thing, but could you please tell me how's that and Isya yoga and Karunya University is related?
but could you please tell me how's that and Isya yoga and Karunya University is related?
Time to time these two things appear & disappear quickly. Reason of appearances was social media & bad personal experience of victims(Search youtube with relevant keywords). Reason of disappearances was MEDIA! Media never cover these news or they overshadow these news by giving more breaking news.
Media don't cover these news because 1) Advertisements (Huge $$$$$) 2) Pressure from both local & national politicians who're followers of those religious leaders
Well, why this news appeared again? Clickety[^] . That's why I used [NoPo] tag in thread title.
Others, just Google for [Any religious leader name] + ' fraud or exposed ' & read/watch articles/videos.
Why pulled Karunya univ. here? On social media/online Isha-Jaggi followers came with that one saying "why don't you ask anything about them?" Similar to political parties' fights. Glad they didn't slap a 'Christian' label on us like 'Anti-Indian'.
One thing I want to know. Why people is following these kind of middlemen(Jaggi, Nithi, Jayan, Rdev, Asaram, Madha, Ma, Prem, Bangaru, Sai, etc., ) when they have so many gods(?). These religious leaders mostly making idiots instead of improving things.
No, I'm not going to do that. There's also a hodgepodge of various links (not to mention an assortment of youtube videos) that I find hard to put together into some sort of context.
It looks to me like you're generally ranting about people blindly following godmen in India, but I could be wrong as you're also linking to a status tweet from Modi, a Google map picture with a University circled, and are accusing the media of something (not sure what it is).
It would help if you could explain in 2 lines about what exactly is it that you're talking about. Something clear like "I feel frustrated because Sasikala wasn't sentenced to death as I believe she carried out the murder of J" or such.
3) Whenever activists/neutrals/public raise questions about them, their followers usually redirects things(Like Jaggi's group pulling Karunya's matter [Remember DMK vs ADMK or BJP vs Cong] ) or come with unnecessary Tags(Like Bhakts come with Anti-Indian Tag to slap on others)
4) There're so much complaints on Isha by victim & family of victims. But nothing got media's spotlight. You could find news on web & videos on youtube.
5) Religious leaders make more $$$$ than anyone in this country without taking any risks. In these places, they use hypnotism(when victim goes for yoga or meditation). Hypnotism helps them to gain so much followers, that's why parents of victims raised complaints against leaders.
N) Godmen > God(?) ?

Nope. Check this for more info about that site & guy. Savukku - Wikipedia[^] He exposed so many things in past. Media never given importance to them. One popular example was Sasikala's success on undertaking Jazz cinemas. All medias wrote about that on last year but this guy exposed that matter a year before. Local media did coverage something like they discovered things by doing some risky detective work which was terrifically funny. https://www.savukkuonline.com/9097/[^] https://www.savukkuonline.com/11931/[^] Smallmom tried to do the same thing on forum mall but his continuous posts & tweets at that time created overwhelming attraction on online so she cancelled that plan.
Really? I don't think so. But BJP always boost all Hindu organisations & leaders. No need foe explanations, self explanatory. But they're doing it hyper level by giving awards. List of Padma Vibhushan award recipients - Wikipedia[^]. Check 'Others' category in the table. This year Jakki & last year Ravi Shankar. Next year hopefully for Baba Ramdev or Asaram Bapu.
