    His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji's deep concern for the preservation of our environment has manifested itself in Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore as Kishkindha Moolika Bonsai Garden, Ashwashala (Horse stables), Goshala (Cow shelters) and Shuka Vana (rehabilitation centre for birds). Parrots are not just agreeable birds with their chirping sounds and attractive, vivid colors. Parrots have a specific spiritual connection with the nine planets (Navagrahas), the twelve zodiac signs (Rasis related to birth stars), the numerals of the dates in each month, and the seven musical notes Sa, Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Da, Ni (Saptaswaras) in Indian classical music. With divine intuition, Sri Swamiji has identified sets of species of parrots that represent each of the above as its vibrant, living, breathing, visible presiding deity. Seeing these divine parrots and providing them nourishment, shelter, and care enhances good fortune and heightens positive energy. The parrots are related to each of us either by representing our birthdate, zodiac sign, or the planet or musical note that stimulates us.

        • Because rape is not always about sex

          This short documentary drives across the following points: Rape is not just about sexual frustration. Gender Policing also leads to rapes. By definition, Gender Policing means forcing a man to 'act like a man' or forcing a woman to 'act like a woman' (and forcing need not be direct forcing; it could also be in the form of rewarding someone only because he / she behaves as per the societal norms). The same mindset that feels like rewarding a person of a particular sex to act like their gender, is not very different from the mindset that feels like punishing one when one does not - and in its extreme form, this punishment takes form of rapes. Mild or innocent or even unintentional form of gender policing happens all the time - everywhere. For example when a boy bullies a girl is school, the girl is often told 'boys will be boys' (which is gender policing because it passes on the signal to boys that for a boy to be a boy, he should be aggressive). Just because we do gender policing with good intentions, does NOT mean it is okay to do so! Because every time we do gender policing, every time we ask a man to 'stop acting like girl', we actually culminate and propagate and validate the justification of so many rapists ('she was dressed like that - she was asking for it', 'she was drunk and out late in the night, she needed to be punished' etc.) If we Indians, can change our attitude towards gender policing (by first becoming aware of it and then trying to stop doing it completely), it will lead to lesser rapes. It might not stop rapes that happen purely because of sexual urge, but it would definitely bring down rapes that are rooted more in the social 'mindset' context. I have blogged about this documentary here: http://www.3minutestories.com/rapes-are-not-always-about-sex/ PS: If you want to write your own article / blog where you would like to embed this video, just shoot me a mail at amrit.vatsa@gmail.com (if you try embedding without letting me know, the video would not play on your site).

            This is a 24 minutes documentary with reporter Sam Kiley investigating the trafficking of underage girls into prostitution in India. It's slavery in the most disgusting form. We started in North West Bengal and ended up in the red light districts of Calcutta and Bombay. The film was produced for the Unreported World series of Channel 4 in November 2004

                  Mercury music prize nominees Django Django became obsessed by the infamous Indian Well of Death riders in Allahabad. So, naturally, they asked Noisey if we'd be up for travelling over to India and standing right in the middle of large lumps of precariously speeding metal for a day, to film a video for their track "Wor". We happily obliged, getting our shoes stolen in the process, but it was worth it to meet a bunch of guys with the most rock solid testicles we've ever come across.
