5 Lesser Known Tales from the Mahabharata

Sharath Komarraju

The Mahabharata is often known as the fifth Veda. It has often been said that reading the Mahabharata from start to finish will fill the reader’s mind with such knowledge and enlightenment that he is sure to achieve heaven. Whether or not that is true, the epic is a virtual forest of stories, with new ones taking root every second. Here is a list of five stories that are not that often repeated.

1. Sage and Scribe

vyasa-ganesha

The Mahabharata is said to have been written down by Lord Ganesha, to the dictation of Vyasa. At the beginning of the exercise, Ganesha says to Vyasa, ‘Lord, I shall write for you on one condition; that you recite the verses at such a speed that my pen shall never stop.’ To that Vyasa said, ‘So be it, my lord. In that case my condition is that you shall only write down a…

Al Qaeda manual urging targets against the West reveal pro-Palestine sentiments is a tool to recruit Jihadis for a worldwide Caliphate

The Muslim Issue

The media is aiding in the recruitment of terrorists by constantly seeking profits from distorted reporting of Palestine propaganda, where Hamas killed children to terrorist parents are paraded as victims to Israeli aggression, while the reality is that Israel observes enormous self-restraint in relentless terror attacks targeted against them.

The reporting and distortions, originating from Muslim propaganda and perpetual lying, has made the reason and history behind the entire conflict so confusing that even we didn’t know that the founder of the Palestinian invasion and occupation demanded a Caliphate from the British Mandate. The motivation for Egyptian and Saudi Barbarian Jihadis to invade the Mandate they under “kafir” governance was to re-awaken a Caliphate in the entire region. Had the Ottomans been there they would still have invaded the Mandate. Today Israel is used as fodder for those intentions. Letters between and the British government clearly mentions the word ‘caliphate’…

Saudi Arabian Study: 23% of Arab Children Have Been Raped; 46% of Arab Students Are Homosexual

Surprising yet scary news!

The Muslim Issue

Video translated from 2008. Clip originally aired on the Arabic-language satellite station ‘al-Hurra’, on the program ‘Misawa’. For additional information, see:

Islam under the guise of Sharia law and the Quran endorses rape of women, and incest of infants and children. The effect of this is a massive number of sexual assault cases on women and children.

Over 23% of Muslim children in a University study claimed to have been raped (1/4 of the entire population). Over 46% of Muslim male students in Riyadh are homosexuals, and over 25% of Muslim male student in Jeddah are homosexuals. Homosexual relations are common due to restriction of association between genders.
The actual percentage of sexual assault on children and women, beyond this University study, is believed to be over 80%.

(In broader surveys sexual assault and incest of children in Islamic societies are much higher than in this study.)

Wong Kar Wai menulis sendiri cerita dan script The Ashes of Time. Bagi sebagian orang, film ini terasa aneh, dan terasa alur ceritanya terlalu lamban. Waktu pertama saya menonton film ini, saya tidak mengerti apa isi ceritanya. Tapi karena pemandangan yang indah, choreography yang sangat luar biasa, casting yang dipenuhi bintang-bintang top Hongkong pada jamannya, maka …
