Please hindus, don't say: "All Religions are the Same"

Maria Wirth is a German and came to India for a holiday after finishing her psychology studies at Hamburg University. She visited the Ardha Kumbha Mela in Haridwar in April 1980 where she met Sri Anandamayi Ma and Devaraha Baba, two renowned saints. With their blessing she continued to live in India and dived into India’s spiritual tradition, sharing her insights with German readers through articles and books. For long, she was convinced that every Indian knows and treasures his great heritage.

Morarji Desai was a great man because he made it to the post of Prime Minister, and that’s what we’ve been taught in our textbooks. But whenever we churn our brain in history’s lane, he shows up as a dude who used to drink his own piss. This is the only riveting fact by which we recognize him. Start following in his footsteps and very soon India will be free of public urinals. Indeed, a great man!
But there is something else about him. Something about his escapade with India’s external intelligence agency R&AW which we can’t find in our historiography majorly dominated by the Left-leaning writers. Right after he barged into the highest political office in March 1977, one of his priorities was to cut down the budget of R&AW by 50 percent and compelling RN Kao, the legendary spymaster, to quit his job.
