Savita Bhabhi Cartoon and its effect in India

Savita Bhabhi is India’s first and only on line cartoon porn star. With a lovely body and a mischievous grin she has fascinated millions.
The Savita Bhabhi site, featured a series of daily cartoon strips based on the “sexual adventures of a hot Indian bhabhi” (sister-in-law), is the creation of Puneet Agarwal, 38, an Indian, from the UK. One typically titillating storyline involved a travelling lingerie salesman ringing Savita’s doorbell and the escapades that followed. It was also hilarious and some learned persons commented, that it drew its inspiration from the ancient Indian sexual texts like the Kama sutra.

 However the Government ordered Internet service providers to block the site under section 67 of the Information Technology Act. The law allows the Government to ban websites that threaten “the sovereignty or integrity of India, defence and security of the state” or that endanger “friendly relations with foreign states”.
Savita Bhabhi plays on the fixation of the Indian man for the Bhabhi. These are harmless tales of love.
India’s decision to blacklist Savita while continuing to allow unfettered access to traditional hardcore pornography sites is a matter of ridicule. People are hoping that Savita Bhabhi will soon have unfettered access to all and sundry.

The Supernatural- A Few Thoughts. * 72

The supernatural is something that happens out of the ordinary and some event or occurrence takes place that does not follow the normal laws of nature. The supernatural may manifest itself in a number of ways. It could be through a man or child or through every day normal events. These events do not have any rational explanation.

Modern scientists do not accept that there is any thing that can be termed supernatural. They prefer to refer to such incidents as a trick of the eye or a fantasy. But sometimes these explanations do not suffice as some sane people have experienced things that can have no rational experience. An example is an event in Sept 1995 that has still not found any rational justification. At that time devotees visiting and praying at the feet of the deity of Lord Ganesh observed to their amazement that the deity would partake of milk held up in a plate to the its lips. The milk would slowly disappear from the plate and to all who were witness to the scene swore that the milk was drunk by the deity. This was a world wide phenomenon and was widely reported by the important news channels like CNN and BBC. An explanation was put out by the scientific community that these phenomena could be because of surface tension and evaporation. But a lot may who witness the ‘miracle’ were not convinced.

Similarly while on a visit to the Metropolis town of Bombay there were reports of a Moslem Pir who had the uncanny power of divining what was in your mind and then telling you about it. For this purpose he would require the visitor to put his thumb on a plate and the Pir would then tell him why he had come and what his problem was. This ability of reading the mind is ESP and science does accept it, but the Pir developed his power through prayer and there is no rational explanation for that.
In the mountain state of Himachal Pradesh a form of evil spirit called the ‘Chaleda’ is very much seen and believed in. Numerous people have claimed to been accosted by the chaleda who sometimes took the form of a dog or cat and even a small child. The Chaleda is supposed to be the spirit of a dead man who has not achieved salvation.

The field is vast and a deeper study is called for. So far scientists have not really attended to these phenomena. The supernatural is not something in the movies but can be real. It would be naïve to deny tits existence. The Bible and most religious thought accept this aspect of our world. Maybe another 100 years down the line this frontier will also be breached.

Of Ghosts and Demons

Some time back my father narrated me an interesting tale. It appears when he was a student of Government College, Hoshiarpur he decided to go home to his village about 15 miles away during the week end. As it was 9 pm the last bus had left, therefore he and a friend of his named Harbans decided to walk down to the village.

The duo started walking to the village. It was a dark night and a cold icy wind blew as it was November and winter was setting in. Mid way to the village there is a small rivulet called a "CHO" in the local language. As the two approached the rivulet my father says he heard horse's hooves on the earth. After some time it appeared that the rider had fallen from the horse. Three times more they heard the horse's hooves and at each time it appeared the horse and rider was nearing them. When ever they looked back the saw nothing. They now waded into the rivulet to cross it and at the same time they decided not to look back. They also started reciting the 'Jap' the holy prayer of Guru Nanak.When they were mid way down the river which had a little less than waist deep water, they heard the rider come close behind them and then fall into the water. They did not look back and continued reciting the prayer. As they emerged out of the river my father says he heard a voice that said 'You have escaped now....but not next time"

This incident looks unbelievable but as my own father narrated this tale to me I am apt to believe it. All religions agree that there is a dark world that includes the undead. The existence of ghosts, demons, and angels is an age old question. Many people are skeptic but many are believers. There is a small percentage that are in between who cannot decide.
The question that everyone asks spontaneously is "do Ghosts and Demons exist?" There is no simple answer to this question. But generally a ghost is a spirit that is on earth for what ever reason. There is a good chance that this spirit is earthbound for a variety of reasons like some unfinished work or having committed some abhorrent crime like child rape and murder and for this crime is denied entry into the after life. Thus he moves in this earth till he can atone for his sins. Such spirits can also cause harm and are manifested in a number of ways like eerie goings on in an empty house. Doors being slammed, windows breaking, bricks falling all cannot be explained by scientific logic.

 I for one do believe in ghosts. Now coming to Demons.These are closely linked with angels. They complement each other. Angels are good, demons are bad. Angels work for God, demons work for the devil.
All religions accept angels and demons as they are supposed to balance each other. The church also accepts demons and exorcism of evil spirits is part of Christian philosophy. The field is vast and it will be some time when even science will unravel this last mystery of the world. Belief in such supernatural events and powers for centuries is not without any foundation
