Dear Sri kman
My view is your tirade is meaningless.The whole issue was whether
we-includes you also-can prescribe new standards for deciding the varna/jati
and do away with what has been so far held by our scriptures-vedas and
smrithies.It appears as unpalatable to stick to what has been held as right
path in the changed circumstances of liberal thinking.As Hindus we believe
in birth -death cycle and births are regarded as result of past karmas
bad/good/or both.This was the fulcrum of all discussions and to be fair to
the conservative stand point the position is unalterable.If one wants to
deviate let him,but there is no sanction.You are angry and want to cast us
all to Hell perhaps.And you call us stupid and what not.We are not playing
number game here.If a mlecha wants to follow Hindhu principles he can do so
without converting externally but observe in letter and spirit such
principles which will earn him a next higher status in the next
birth.Onemorething,our shastras are liberal in that punyam or papam accrue
to one and all who follow the dharma prescribed for him.Probably you hold
the view that it is all designed to oppress the lower varnas by the
superior[!] varnas only based on births. R.Krishnamoorthy.
