I see why Mr. Banerjee would like to see this discussion continue. Cut
out his one-point agenda, and he would have nothing left to say! One
only has to peruse the Indology Archives and the Usenet to see what I

Mr. Banerjee, don't you think it is a little ironic that the very
thing you hate (hindu organizations) have become the only thing you
can discuss?  I ask you again - why don't you do something useful for
us Hindus, like build us a nice temple or something, rather than
spreading hate about the organizations that do build us nice temples ?
Ever heard of fair competition ? Offering a better product has been
known to be an effective way of causing harm to your competitor, as
opposed to grabbing a loudspeaker and forcing hate down the throat of
everyone within earshot..

Oh, and Mr. Banerjee's brave attempts to start painting Swami
Vivekananda in a crimson hue is providing some much needed comic
relief on this list, atleast for me. There is atleast one website
dedicated to proving that Swami Vivekanda was a Muslim in
private. Mr. Banerjee might want to search for it to get more
"quotes", perhaps. As long as no one is taking it seriously, I guess
it is harmless for him to continue..
