Sarasvati, makSU ... avo vRNImahe!
Haraxvaiti, moSu mee jauua avanghe!
V. Agarwal allows:
>Of course, you are most welcome to accept the sukha = axle hole equation.
Many thanks indeed, for the permission, I am deeply touched.
But: he should check the RV *himself* first, *then* judge 150 years of
Not judge etymologies by emotion.
Basic rule of philology, ahem, science.
Chris Wallis: "please pause and erase the offending lines from your email
before sending it."
Take a look at some gems from the pen of...
V. Agarwal reigns himself in:
>> lest Dr. Witzel says with his foul-mukha that I
>>am indulging hate-mongering
>Dr. Witzel said:
>Just check 'foul' in the archives, you will discover its author.
V. Agarwal advises:
> ... So maybe you need to take a course in psychology.
V. Agrawal decrees:
>... Since you are yourself so durmukha,
> you cannot appreciate the need for people to be polite in such matters.
V. Agarwal judges:
>After all, we are all too familiar with your Hast-in dveep-in type logic,
>that I find quite infantile
<actually, on second thought, I like be called an elepant and leopard!>
and check on many more, before...
any comments ???
So, now we have :
* Several INDOLOGY members' (Vidhyanath Rao, S. Subrahmanya, SNS, TAREK
WANI, VISHAL AGARWAL) invention of 'my' chariot panzers, etc. (see my gem
collection of 2/13),
* Rajarshi Banerjee's new attempt at imputing words to me (17 Mar 2000
22:12:39) "you ... belive in chariots armies used to herd cows" (WHERE did
I write that, ksaamyataam ??),
* and a small selection of the collected writings of V. Agarwal, above
(who cannot even keep private correspondence to himself, BEWARE!).
What, pray, irks them?
