GLIMPSES FROM LIFE & TIMES OF BABA BAKHORAN DASS (BBD)

– Expression of biased sentiments of a HINDU
– (Save it, if you like – Discard, if not)

A good lot of people including Baba Bakhoran Dass (BBD) do participate in deliberation/discussion on Hinduism or Hindutwa irrespective of the fact, whether they know what it is? To me a Hindu cannot be communal (this definition of communal-ism must be apolitical and no narrow means). If you have got means, aptitude and attitude, please explore the joy of knowing Aadi Shankaracharya his life and contribution, please visit KALADI (only 6 KM away from KOCHI airport – Kerala – India).
Please suggest any document like the greatest epic named MAHABHARAT where (as per Dr.Devidutt Pattanaik):

– A son renounces sex so that his old father can remarry
– A daughter is a prize in archery contest
– A teacher demands half a kingdom as his tuition fee
– A student is turned away because of his caste
– A mother asks her son to share a wife
– A father curses his son-in-law to be old and impotent
– A husband lets another man make his wife pregnant
– A wife blindfolds herself to share her husband’s blindness
– A forest is destroyed for a new city
– A family is divided over inheritance
– A king gambles away his kingdom
– A queen is forced to serve as a maid
– A man is stripped of his manhood for a year
– A women is publicly disrobed
– A war is fought where all rules are broken
– A shift in sexuality secures victory
– A vanquished go to the paradise
– The victors lose their children
– The earth is bathed in blood
– God is cursed UNTIL WISDOM PREVAILS
