    Hats off to the Professor for her brutally frank narration of the state of affairs prevailing in our country and the hypocrisy of some people at the helm of affairs. She is technically and scientifically correct.She is a bit rough and caustic in her remarks. She ought to have been more polite and conciliatory in her approach while vehemently criticising our so called beliefs, shall I say blind and out dated beliefs. There is truth in every word that she had uttered . She ought to have down played her remarks via counselling and motivation to the people she wants to address. If some people complain that she has no authority to speak, it's too loud and harsh. All subjects are interlinked. All subjects are complimentary to each other.. All subjects come under, " Systems of Thought". And all Systems of Thought come under Philosophy. Philosophy is the mother of all subjects. Patting ourselves on our backs all the time is of no use. Let us not say that everything is in our Vedas and Scriptures. Ours is an ancient country with several good qualities and bad qualities. The Western part of the world also has several good and bad qualities. Wisdom lies in holistically following the best of the East and the best of the West for the overall welfare of humanity. Let us promote the dignity of humanity and the Divinity of humanity instead of crossing our swords at different systems of thought!

    Few generations later people will laugh at the idiocy and idiotic beliefs of the Indian society as of now. All religions are equally ridiculous. They are tribal beliefs carried too far. And the people are so stupid and mentally sick. Probably the clash between the baseless belief of superiority and the factual slavery of a thousand years has impacted the conscience of the society deep enough to fracture it.

    This woman is attacking RSS and Hindutva without having any serious study of our rich cultural past. It is a pity that her loud half-baked thoughts are being clapped at by a bunch of similar characters. She is entirely ignorant of reality. Totally confused and misguided by the urge to criticize for the sake of criticism, which, however, is very hollow. That is what happens to people who are not possessed of balanced brain power. Less said the better.

    she said everything right no doubt, but just mentioning Hindu cultural details may be bcoz she belongs to that was little absurd. She could have kept it generic, i mean this happens in all of the religion where they are stuck in past. I agree lets drop all last name which will remove casteism but the point here is people need to change their mind set and devotion both can co exist. And she also needs to understand tbe desr lady from TISS. That due to science we only know a drop in the ocean. We dont have answers about aliens, about other planets and worm hole black hole. Time travel, these all are theoritical concepts, science hasnt proven it. Whatever happened, the big bang etc why that happened at first place. Why oxygen exists. Science doesnt know the start or the end. And we can never know its vast. Thats where the concept of God, Vishnu, Shiva came. That there has to be someone who has all these answers. So miss science i too belong to that science gang but yes science doesnt have answers to all, they just know the drop in the ocean. Period.

    She definitely has some valid points. But she’s a leftist asset and Hindu phobic ideologist. Such people are a good reference point to understand a communist mind.

    The difference between congress Party rule and other parties rule is : Congress party leaders like Rajiv gandi, kamalnath, etc orchestrate riots and murders and get away, while non-congress party leaders make a few stupid statements and try and get away. But ladies like this catch up with such stupid statements while they let the murderers scot free.

    Foolish woman. Why should we let go of our traditional values. If you have a fucked up past , you put a burger in your mouth and go to where you find the bliss. Idiotic face. I am not a Hindu but I must say these guys are badly smelling shits, I mean the scientific shits having freed from the long time constipation in 2014.

    If any thing to demolish or against hinduism, "Brut" is there. Like the purpose of this channel is to only find mistakes in one religion and demean Hinduism.

    This lady Kanitkar does not look old enough that her mother would have questioned why only men are allowed to learn, educate and earn!!😃😃 Is she serious, if that was the case then this over smart fool of a lady would'nt be shooting her mouth off and spit so much venom against Mr. PM and RSS. It seemed more like personal vendetta rather than the societal norms.... The examples she gave of the older generation hardly exist. They all have left this shitty place for us to bear this fool of a lady😡😡😡 and come to think of it she is the asst. Professor at the Tata Institute of Social sciences.
