Here is the beautifully written comment on Sulekha

This is the sort of work that fell by the wayside when the commie distorians took over Indian academics. Romila Thapar and her ilk did nothing original during their long tenure and only served as armchair Marxist dialecticians of Western reports. Their deserving fate is be despised for generations to come!

Archaeologists discover engravings, tools of prehistoric man in Jharkhand

Basadera (Jharkhand), Feb 15 (ANI): Archaeologists in Jharkhand's Basadera village have discovered a huge stone engraved into the shape of tools, believed to have been used by prehistoric men.

The findings, termed by archaeologists as one of the largest findings ever with thousands of stones shaped like tools used by prehistoric men found at one place, could prove to be an important milestone in the study of the transformation of primitive human beings.

"It must have been a settlement of the prehistoric men. We have also recovered very ancient chopping tools. We had recovered the same kind of tools in the Shivalik and Narmada regions. The earlier surveys in Jharkhand did reveal hand axes, but this is the first time that we have recovered chopping tools. The engravings of an elephant on stones have been recovered that have been made by prehistoric man. These kinds of engravings have been discovered for the first time," said Onkar Chauhan, Superintendent Archaeologist, Archaeological Survey of India, Ranchi.

Situated at a distance of 175 kilometres from state capital Ranchi, the site is spread over an area of around 2 kilometres.

The rock also has deep elephant-shaped engraving resembling a 'Stegodon', the elephants that had probably roamed in this part of the world during the 'Pleistocene' period or from two million to 11 thousand years ago, archaeologists said.

The 'Stegodon' was a long-legged elephant that lived in Asia and Africa in the 'Pleistocene' period and is now extinct.

The archaeologists are now exploring the site to find out greater evidences of the life-style of 'homosapiens' (ancient human beings) who roamed freely on earth 1.2 million years ago.

According to historians, human colonisation in the country encompasses a span of at least half-a-million years and is divided into two broad periods, namely the prehistoric (before the emergence of writing) and the historic (after writing).

The prehistoric period is divided into stone, bronze and iron ages. The stone age is further divided into palaeolithic, mesolithic and neolithic periods. As the name suggests, the technology in these periods was primarily based on stone.

Economically, the palaeolithic and mesolithic periods represented a nomadic, hunting-gathering way of life, while the neolithic period represented a settled, food-producing way of life. Subsequently copper was introduced as a new material and this period was designated as the chalcolithic period.

The invention of agriculture, which took place about 8000 years ago, brought about dramatic changes in the economy, technology and demography of human societies.

The first urbanization took place during the bronze age in the arid and semi-arid region of northwest India in the valleys of the Indus and the Saraswati rivers, the latter represented by the now dry Ghaggar-Hakra bed.

This urbanisation is known as the Indus or Harappan civilization which flourished during 3500-1500 B.C. The rest of India during this period was inhabited by neolithic and chalcolithic farmers and mesolithic hunter-gatherers. (ANI)

UP Minister offers Rs 51 crore for killing cartoonists

Pioneer News Service/ Lucknow

Pak cleric promises $1 mn ---- Minority Affairs Minister Haji Yaqoob Khan on Friday announced a Rs 51-crore award and gold equivalent to the body weight of anyone who beheads the Danish cartoonists for caricaturing Prophet Mohammad. Mr Khan is a senior member of Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav's Samajwadi Party Government in Uttar Pradesh.
Haji Md Yaqoob addresses an anti-cartoon rally in Meerut


The controversial Minister, while addressing a Muslim rally organised in Meerut to protest publication of the cartoons in the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten last year and reproduced by some European newspapers recently, said, "The people of Meerut will give Rs 51 crore to anyone who beheads the Danish cartoonist. The person successful in this mission would also be given gold equivalent to his weight."

Even as Haji Yaqoob Khan was announcing the Rs 51 crore bounty in Meerut, a Pakistani cleric in Peshawar announced a $1 million reward for killing the Danish cartoonists, according to AP. Denmark announced it had temporarily closed its Embassy in Pakistan after a week of riots in which Western businesses were targeted.

Though Haji Yaqoob Khan's announcement offering a reward for the slaying of the Danish cartoonists led to frayed tempers in Meerut, the Uttar Pradesh Government underplayed the statement. Principal Secretary (Home) Alok Sinha defended the Minister saying he had committed no offence by making such an appeal.

"It is not a case of a 'supari' or contract killing, since the persons against whom he issued the appeal are not an Indians and are based in Denmark", Mr Sinha said, adding: "There is no threat of any communal flare-up in either Uttar Pradesh or any part of the country in the wake of such an appeal made by the Minister".


On the contrary, tension prevailed in Meerut after Friday prayers organised by local Muslims at the Faiz-e-Aam College grounds near Ghantaghar. Sources said provocative speeches by local leaders vitiated the atmosphere but the situation was under control.

In Muzaffarnagar, two persons were seriously injured and the police had to fire in the air and burst teargas shells to quell clashes after Friday prayers. The mob indulged in looting and arson on Sarwat road and Kacchi Sadak localities burning several shops and vehicles.

The clash occurred as the local Muslims forcibly tried to shut shops along the route of the procession, taken out to protest the Prophet's caricatures. Though the situation in Muzaffarnagar city is said to be under control, the district administration is taking no chances and has stepped up security.



Oh brilliant. It's alright to put out a bounty for killing someone, just as long as they're not within your local district??

What a civilized country we're fighting to protect -- one that elects govts like this.
