Thank you Sarky for remembering. I watched as one of the greatest boxers
became heavyweight champ, how the us government kept him from boxing
for three years, (until the us supreme court overturned his convection).
I watched this man stick to his principles and set a great example to all.   
Thumbs Up! richardao. Some people get remembered, but this guy will go down in history and wont be forgotten.

 this point isn't true when we are concerned about religion and respect/love for Indian desi cow which is like mother due to milk and ghee which keeps people healthy and milk products fight some deadly health problems..

I think if you investigate further, you will find that not all share your views  Smiley

Quote: "This point isn't true when we"  WHO is WE? Not every person who stems from India think the same, don't you mean: "I"?
"Like mother due to milk" Are camels, goats, donkeys, horses, reindeer, pigs and other animals like "mother" too then, as they too produce milk. There are numerous mammals that produce milk to feed their young, just like humans. The cow is just one of those mammals.  Smiley
 Not everyone actually drinks milk or consumes dairy products or even human breast milk. Hence why substitutes are on the market. Some eat no dairy products.

Love/respect for cows that are often starved and/or abused, fed on garbage they manage to find instead of comfortably living in a field eating grass, dosent run very deep.  Sad

That word again: RESPECT is this respect? https://www.mw.org/archive/indian-cows-not-holy-leather-industry
What about the Peta investigation that revealed the horrors in India,s dairy industry? There was nothing holy about their findings and YOU think that milk is healthy...if you had respect you wouldn't drink that milk out of respect for those cows and the sufferings they endure for you to drink it...

Also checkout: Indias leather industry exposed on YouTube whereby animals are beaten with sticks with their legs tied up....

Cows are treated so cruelly in India for their leather, made to walk for hundreds of miles to be slaughtered while conscious and if they stop moving their tails are broken or their sprayed with pepper. The poor animals are so malnourished they wouldn't even provide hardly any meat. Large retail giants across America and Europe refuse to buy their leather out of disgust at the way they are treated with huge campaigns by celebrities such as Stella McCartney to make the general public aware in the mistreatment and sheer cruelty that exists to make those leather shoes, bags etc.
Other countries may use animals leather but do not regard that same animal as sacred and the leather is a by product taken after the animal has been slaughtered for meat. Properly transported, adequate food given and free to roam the fields till their hearts content...with restrictions usually fully in place so they will suffer as little as is possible.NOT tied up together by rings around their noses, beaten and forced to walk for miles and reduced to eating out of trash bins in the streets...So please, if you had so much love and respect for the cow, you would be doing your utmost to try and prevent their suffering by spreading the word NOT to buy that leather, NOT to drink that milk which is often produced in the most filthy unhygienic conditions and causing pain and suffering to those very animals you say you LOVE just like your mother!

Hinduism has prohibited beef thus how hindus can eat beef. and you are wrong to say majority of people in India eat beef since majority of India is hindus
You may find that many Hindus do eat beef whether secretly or with other Hindus who also eat it, both in and outside of India.

Not everyone conforms to everything that any one religion may prohibit.

Some do...Some choose not too.

According to the following article from The Hindu, many Hindus DO eat beef in India and one of the reasons stated is that its cheaper than mutton.

Isnt India the largest exporter of buffalo meat & hides? Do many Hindus not sell cows? Knowing full well that they will be eaten or used for their skins.?

If you travelled about abit, you would see Hindus joining the queues for beef products as much as those from any other or no religious denomination. Do you realise how many Hindus queue for a Mcdonalds Big Mac for example? &nbsp;lol

The more one is told never to do something or that its forbidden, its human nature that many will be even more curious to try it!


I understand there are people murdered for eating beef by radicals....

What gives one the right to tell or dictate to another, what meat they should or shouldn't eat? As long as its bred and killed humanely.

For many extremely poor folk in India, the meat which others say they shouldn't eat is a meal that keeps them alive... &nbsp;Why would anyone deny them that meal? Some may choose not to conform, others may not have that choice.

Wow, yet another way to misuse the Holy Book.
Indeed Vijay.  Thumbs Up!

Unfortunately he isn't the first nor will he be the last, to use religion as a way of gaining access to vulnerable youngsters to abuse & the trust of the parents who send their kids for classes.

70  General Category / The Newsroom / Re: FAILURE ? DEPRESSION ? CONTEMPLATING SUICIDE ? ~MUST READ FOR STUDENTS~ on: May 24, 2016, 07:10:42 PM
In The Newsroom. I came across the news article titled Girl kills self after poor board result

A lil girl, ending her budding life just because she could not prove herself in the Board Examinations!

May is the month of 'Results' and sadly…suicide stories by students who could not perform as per their expectations are splashed in almost all the dailies on a regular basis.

Not just exam results', going by the current trends, even a slight provocation is enough to push some individual to the edge.

Just last week, The Maximum City MUMBAI reported not one, not two, but a staggering 7 Cases of suicide in 24 HOURS!

And surprisingly, its not just some depressed teenagers who take this step… If we go through the report, the facts are startling :

Here is an excerpt from the news article, Seven suicides in 24 hrs which appeared on the Times of India dated 16th May 07

So you can see…the people who took this step range from a Mentally Challenged Patient to an Engineering Student ! From a domestic help to a DOCTOR in Sion Hospital !!

Now, what makes these people take such a drastic step?

Do these people even think what their parents and siblings may go through once they commit such a step? Do they ever imagine that although they might get rid of worldly challenges… but what about their parents whose life would henceforth be a living hell?

Almost all the religions disapprove the concept of Suicide :

Coming back to the main topic, school kids contemplating suicide just because they could not perform as per the expectations of their peers.

Youngsters also seem to be suffering from the loss of confidence.

The affected individual feels unimportant, emotionally bruised and uncared for. And that's when this individual acts upon the warning.

The suicidal feeling can subside with care, communication and concern.

For this purpose, family &nbsp;can act as the BEST counselors.

Someone under huge pressure to perform is hardly thinking about religion.

Family/parents. The person contemplating suicide for the above reasons are hardly going to confide in their family/parents either.

The reason WHY many youngsters feel suicide may be their only option is BECAUSE of their parents and the huge pressure that some parents put their children under to live up to their expectations...

The pressure PARENTS put their children under to live out the dreams NOT of their child, but their own.

The pressure parents put their children under to hopefully get their PARENTS out of poverty and bring in more money...For them: Not the child.

Offspring are not always able to live up to those expectations, nor may they wish too...

It ISNT failure on the part of the child for not passing exams that PARENTS think they should...Even though in many cases, those same pushy parents weren't capable of passing themselves!

The child may have no intention of being a doctor, teacher, solicitor or whatever career the parents have chosen, have absolutely no interest in that chosen course OR even have the academic ability to pass that particular course.

When under that kind of pressure, the parents will be the LAST people they will turn too to confide in as is THEM that have put this huge burden on the shoulders of that person in the first place.

It should not be your children,s responsibility to live the dreams that you failed to achieve or to pay your debts and get you out of the poverty you may have been in before you decided to bring that child into the world.

The child is an individual. They are not YOU. May not want what you want for them, may NOT be able to perform or live up to the expectations you may have of them.

They should not be made to feel a failure because of this. Its the PARENTS fault in the first place that this happens. Those parents who want to boast to their friends that their child got higher marks than everybody else...
Those same parents who will be waiting with their hands open wide to reap the financial rewards that the CHILD has achieved.

The child should not be under such huge pressure from those very people who are meant to support them and love them, no matter what they choose or don't choose, to do with their OWN LIVES...

In cases such as the above, the only failures...ARE THE PARENTS. NOT the poor child who felt so pressured to perform something they may not even have been academically able too, so the only option they felt they had left was to end their lives because of the consequences they may face from those parents when they fail their exams...

Children should not be expected to fulfil parents unfulfilled dreams. Let them have their own.

You ask the question: "Do they not think what they put the parents through" what it SHOULD be is this:

Do the parents not think what they have put their children through that has led them to take such drastic measures as deciding to end their lives...rather than face them after failing to achieve what they expected of them.
