Vinod Kumar's Articles
Welcome to to preview my articles. The purpose of these articles is not to provide any solutions or opinions but just to offer information mostly from basic contemporary sources and core scriptures; to inform and let the readers make up their own opinions and mind. Some articles may be analytical of current events. In the name of "secularism" much is being written that has no connection with the truth.
George Orwell wrote "those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future" and this is specially true in India today. India's history and ethos being distorted by those who had taken control of it in the past fifty years with a view to control the future of India. These articles are a modest attempt to make the readers aware of India's past from contemporary sources.
Let knowledge percolate and shine in every nook and corner of our minds. Knowledge is the ultimate power. As our rishis have said "Satyameva Jayate" -- Truth shall prevail.
