Has the Gita Led Anyone Towards Hinduism?
Hinduism is not an organised religion. In the sense that it was not founded by one single person like Buddha -ism, Jain-ism, Jesus of Nazareth-ism or Muslim-ism , Judaism et al. A believer of these isms owes allegiance to Aaramas, Temples, Churches Masjids etc. But a Hindu whether he goes to a temple or not, whether believes in God or not will still be a Hindu. Since Hinduism does not ordain it's followers to visit temples to pray a god and make contributions to that organization. For Hindus the Sun, moon, air, earth etc are gods and who offer prayers to these things, it is not compulsory to step into designated places of worship and offer designated prayers. Hinduism, the way of life, has its roots in Vedas, was not founded by one person. Similarly, the Gita, is an essence of Upanishads. I would not elaborate this. OK. If I am right, the Beatles, P.B.Shelley and many others influenced by Hinduic perception of life, wrote poetry appreciated by the world, without knowing that these were influenced by Hindu scriptures like Gita.nWhat about Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Rajneesh, Jiddu Krishna Murti, the flying yogi, oh. The list is unending.

Why are LED grow lights purple?
Theyu2019re not actually purple - they just appear that color to our eyes.The goal of a grow light is to efficiently convert as much electrical energy into plant (chemical) energy as possible. Since you canu2019t plug a plant in to an outlet, the energy must go through an intermediate state: light.
electrical energy -(LED)-> optical energy -(chlorophyll)-> chemical energyPlants donu2019t absorb all wavelengths of light equally though.Chlorophyll absorbs a lot of red and blue light, and less green and yellow light (thatu2019s why leaves look greenish to us - the plant bouncing much of that spectrum back).If we were designing a LED grow light, we can see that a pure white light (all wavelengths) doesnu2019t make sense, because the greens and yellows wouldnu2019t get used by the plant, and would therefore be totally wasted. Weu2019d want blue light and red light for our grow lamp to maximize energy transfer.When we turn our light on, it looks purple. What gives?When blue and red light sources are combined, they appear magenta to our eyes.
LED grow lamps are designed to emit only the light frequencies that will be best absorbed by the plant and those colors look purple (magenta) to our eyes
Was it right when Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel forcefully annexed the state of Hyderabad into India? Why did he need to do that?
Did the Hyderabad Nizam ask the permission of all his people to rule his territory? Or did he rule the territory by force? His ancestors had just taken the power to rule the people by brute force and cunningness, because they could. And in Patel they met a person willing to use even more force and cunningness. It was a fair fight. Having a hostile enemy in the middle of your territory is extremely dangerous. That would have led to endless quarrels and wars. These wars would have neither helped the people of Hyderabad nor the people of other parts of India. By taking over Hyderabad, the only person who was affected was the Nizam, who had to live a pitiful life of a super-rich person after the takeover. The people of Hyderabad benefitted and same for the people of India. That means the dharma for Patel lay in taking over Hyderabad. I wish Indians spend more time understanding the Mahabharata. We keep many naive theories, which are all dangerous. While it is good for us commoners to be simple and honest, it is imperative for our rulers to be cunning, shrewd and willing to bend rules for the betterment of our lives
Which is bombing legally in Syria based on the current international laws, the US led allies or the Russia?
The Russian presence in Syria is completely legal because they were invited to the country by the Syrian government.The bombings that are carried out by the US, France, Great Britain and others are illegal under international law, since they have received no authorization from the Syrian government to perform airstrikes on its territory. This has led to several incidents like when the SAA was fighting the Kurds in Hassakah and the Syrian air force started to carry out airstrikes against the Kurds. Then, the US said that if their advisors were endangered (advisors and spec ops who are also in the country illegally) they would shoot down the Syrian planes. Basically, the US was saying that the Syrians are not allowed to fly their planes in their country (violating their sovereignty) because they don't want their soldiers illegally deployed there to be in harm's way. It is rumored that one of the conditions that the US was requesting in the ceasefire negotiations was that the Syrian airforce should be grounded, which Russia refused to accept.
However, everyone overlooks and is ok with this because they are fighting ISIS, which is seen as the greater evil. And while they were fighting ISIS some weeks ago, they accidentally bombed the SAA troops, killing 80 of them, and it helped ISIS to take several positions in the area, which were later recaptured the SAA
Why did the Indian Congress party keep alive Article 370 although it wasn't good for the people of Kashmir or for India?
The premises that Article 370 was not good for the people of Kashmir or for India is unfounded. If it is not good for the people of Kashmir, why should not they ask for its abrogation early. None of the peoples representative from Kashmir has said anything positively in favor of abrogation of Article 370. Only people who are insane can subscribe the view that only BJP can understand what is good to the country and its people. The RSS and BJP(Jana Sangh) were against Article 370 right from 1950. So it is their politics. Nothing can be attributed to the good of the people.
Everybody knows what is the BJP agenda behind abrogation of Article 370 against the will of the Kashmiri people.The special rights which are protected by Article 35A and 370 were those prevalent in Kashmir from 19th century on wards. So it is a legacy issue. No leaders will be a party to surrender the existing rights of the people for the sake of anything. The Congress party always respect heritage, history, legacy etc., of the people in each region. That is why the constitution made by the erstwhile leaders of the Congress party provides for SARVA DHAMA SAMA BHAVA
Why do so many programmers have a vertical monitor?
I have two monitors, a horizontal and a vertical one: best of both worlds.The fact is that vertical monitors show more lines of code thus you can see a larger chunk of code without jumping up and down just to see the definition of a variable. If you split horizontally your editor window, the number of lines shown in each sub-window is significantly higher resulting in a much better experience.
Nevertheless, there are other situations where you need to show different files, even three contemporaneous files. In such a situation, a horizontal screen is much better as you put side by side two or more windows and you still have a significant number of lines on screen.If you compare two files, a typical activity when merging code, the horizontal screen gives the best experience.
Personally I run the IDE on a virtual machine on the horizontal screen (only one virtual monitor, two give more headaches IMHO) and I show the code I need to consult from GIT on the vertical monitor using the browser. Or I use other net services (like stackoverflow or google) on the vertical monitor.If I need to edit vertically, I just move the virtual window to the vertical monitor to get the best of both worlds.
I tried to program with three or more monitors, but I feel it useless
Will Trump be impeached after Mueller finishes his investigation?
Yes. It is very likely that Trump will be impeached. Heres why likely impeachment doesnt mean likely removal:All that is required for an impeachment of a U.S. President is that the House of Representatives pass, by simple majority, Articles of Impeachment which consist of formal allegations. Evidence has already swung past the tipping point for a resurgent Democrat-led House to file allegations. But, what does that mean?Of the two U.S. Presidents who have been impeached by the House Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton both were acquitted by the Senate.Step two in removing a President from office: the Senate must vote to convict by a two-thirds majority. With those odds, its unlikely that Trump will be the first U.S. President to be removed from office by impeachment . . . but who knows.**In 1868 when Andrew Johnson was impeached, the Senate was just one vote shy of the 2/3rds needed to convict. They were reluctant to remove him from office because the president protempore of the Senate next in line for the presidency since Johnson didnt have a vice president was Ohio Senator Benjamin Franklin Wade who had scared the shit of his senate colleagues by suggesting that women should have the right to vote
Led Zeppelin disbanded after John Bonham's death because the band could not continue without him. Do you think the same thing would have occurred if John Paul Jones had died instead of Bonham?
I think the band would have continued, but would have plummeted in song and album quality. The thing about bassists is, you donu2019t really realize how integral and necessary they are to your band until theyu2019re gone, or, in my bandu2019s case, until they start writing songs. John Paul Jones was no exception- very much in the background compared to the other three. However, John Paul Jones quietly made Led Zeppelin the band it would become. Sure, early albums were dominated by Jimmy Pageu2019s heavy blues riffs and messy solos, and Robert Plantu2019s wailing vocals, but in the early 70s, Led Zeppelin evolved into something more than just raw, blues-inspired hard rock. That evolution wouldnu2019t have happened without John Paul Jones. Although Jones was first and foremost the bass player, he also played mandolin and keyboards, which opened up new realms for the band. The mandolin let them have a folky side, the keyboards let them have a sophisticated, almost progressive sound. For reference, listen to u201cNo Quarteru201d. Quite different from the crashing heaviness of albums past.They would have regrouped, said u201citu2019s OK guys, we can find another bassistu201d, released another couple albums and then said u201cwhoa, actually we sucku201d and disbanded then
If the Big Bang created everything, what could have created the big bang?
There are many theories for this. One is the infinite loop, that our universe goes through a cycle , where there is a bang , an expansion and eventually gravity pulls everything back together to form the Big Bang again. This creates a loop with no beginning or end.Another theory is that our universe is a bud of another bigger universe. This theory states that our universe is not alone but a part of a bigger Multiverse. These universes flot around the cosmic sea as expanding bubbles. One of these universes could have been our parent universe, the universe from which our universe budded our of.
The third way takes into account quantum theory. Quantum theory states that anything that can happen, no matter how low the chances , will happen , GIVEN ENOUGH TIME. Taking this into account , it is possible that the universe didnt exist , and it just sprang into existence. Because of this event has such a low chance ( but there is a chance) , it is not likely to happen very soon again.There are many other theories , although its very hard to verify them using our current technological advancement. Thank you for reading this and feel free to let me know if I made any error. We are all learning , I will learn too. Thanks again.
