  • Yes ofcourse there are dark points in history we’ll never know about !! They say that history is written by the winner, which is very true and hence what we get to know is mostly a one sided view of what happened. Historians and archaeologists check these reports against solid evidence to verify how true the discovered accounts are. Often these experts find contradicting evidences suggesting that events as they happened where not accurately reported or the reports were skewed.

  • Its all about belief, if you consider river “Ganga” as holy, it becomes sacred and if you do not want to believe its just a plain flowing water for you.

    i think you got my irony.

    Not only hindus, but every one is right and you see, hinduism talks its existence before Adam and Eve, Birth of Adam and Eve is around 30th century BC, exactly when Krishna died, that is Krishna said, “kalyug is coming and i am going now”. So what ever each religion says, all are very correct.

    Brother, I know you are not going to do this

    but just read once “SrimadBhagwatGeeta”, Believe me, whoever says to you that its a spiritual book, just ᴘιss on him,believe me, i have read it whole and it just talks clearly about your question.
