Indians (not all but enough to set policy) are determined to prove to the world they are totally dedicated to the New World Order. It is currently building the world’s largest biometric database of all its citizens. It is also building Earth’s largest suicide machine, the 10,000 MW Jaitapur nuke reactor in Maharashtra (Fukushima I’s biggest reactor is #6 at 1100 MW). Yesterday we blogged an Al Jazeera report about the toxic sewer the “holy” Yamuna River has become.
India, however, isn’t all the smell of radioactive petrochemical shit. The simple biodegradable and disposable chai cup is a powerful means to show the world how humans can live harmoniously with Mother Earth, instead of raping Her daily with plastic insults. Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri is the most beautiful poem in the English language and Hariprasad Chaurasia’s music captures the mystic heart of India like no other as far as I know.
