Why, as I think, the west describes Hinduism as Dharmic religion

Hinduism is not a rigid system, having a well-laid rituals to observe for demonstrating one's conformity to this faith.  Hinduism is highly syncretic in nature, that is, it contains the contradictory , mutually inconsistent beliefs . Syncretic polytheist that we are, it leads us to a few problems. Firstly, one conforming member may fall into argument with other as to what one must observe and one must forbid to prove allegiance. Any rigid ritual will have the effect of doing to Hinduism just what it is not.

They have enough carrots to buy away the new from out

Serendipity -- building a case for why freebies are important for a democracy

To be able to cultivate in our country innovation, research and winnings in the Olympic games we will have to focus ourselves on understanding the importance of ‘ free carrots ’ to a free-spirited, free-will democracy. Understanding the contributions of ‘Free-carrots’ to a democratic society is important so that we may stop ourselves from cussing its proponents with the arguments such as “ wasting the precious resources of society ” or the  anecdote of socialist marking of examination sheet done by a professor in a class . We need to understand the fallacy in the argument which says that the freebies to the people are wastage of social resources, and an unjustified distribution of the profits earned by hard working people to lazy people .                 Have you ever wondered as to who spends for those lion and snake stories that we so regularly watch on science channels as the Discovery Channel and the NatGeo. Who pays and why does he pay to go to Africa to research on thos
