Clear indication that World is now fad up with biased Western Propoganda and their Hegemony….So people are craving for Alternative, other side of the coin to get clear picture of World affairs. So, shifting to media like Russian TV for cross check!
RT is now World’s leading news network on YouTube with 4 billion (400 crores) hits! wow!
Indians should learn from RT and establish few Global News Networks showing Indian Drishti (perspective/ gazing) on world affairs.

Why India will be next Media Capital of the World:
India has largest English speaking population (over 350 millions or 35 crores)
India has 99000+ publications
India has 13761+ registered News Papers
404 TV News Channels that runs 24X7
But, still don’t have a Global News Network (which is big opportunity for Indians!)
World Statistics shared by Mr Arnab Goswami (below clip) shows,
91% Indians follows cross-border news, making them most interested about world.
With 44-45 % the least interested are Americans and British, but they try to control (74 % of source of Global News coming from them ) most of World Affairs News with their biased Propaganda!! Oppss…
Indian fire brand journalist Mr. Arnab Goswami Summarizes this as “Indians are least insular i.e open Minded people. Americans are most insular people but they have complete dominance over Global Narrative in terms of news”.
MUST WATCH: Arnab Goswami tearing Western Media at RT conference 2015 ‘Hegemony of Western media has to end’
Full debate:“Role of International news media on new geopolitical chessboard (#RT10 Panel Discussion) – 2015” with Arnab Goswami representing Indian News Media.
It’s a huge opportunity for Indians to show world our Drishti (gazing) on India and world affairs.
Statistics of World News Readers and India’s stand in world Media consumption:
World News statistics in 2015-16, Asia is only growing!
Top 10 countries with highest News paper circulation, India is 4th with 2.9 million circulations daily (year 2006)
Once again congrats to RT team!

In china, building BIG is sign of Success!!…Chengdu, 4th largest city in China with population of 40 millions (4 Crores), now has world’s commercial building “New Century Global Centre” , size of 329 football fields, can accommodates 20 Sydney Opera buildings inside!
Size of this Mall is 1.9 million sq meters or more than 20 million sq ft (1 million = 10 lakhs). It has…
150 + Malls/Outlets inside!
Indoor Artificial Beach
Indoor Water park
LCD screen of 150 m (50 Storage high) i.e more than Statue of Liberty (30 storage high)
On the other side, by creating world’s biggest construction bubble for faster growth/GDP figures to “Catch/Copy West” mindless rush, ordinary Chinese people seems to be lagging behind the plan…They have to borrow to buy all this high-price places leaving behind their ancestors towns/farmlands, etc to work as labors in big newly constructed cities.
Such cities now has majority Middle Class people i.e. low-Consumption but high class city malls?? Result will be this…
Urban Decay – Ghost Malls & Ghost City at Tianjin-China
Bad Construction – Topple buildings in China
People fear faulty Escalators at Shopping Malls in China
Newly built Bullet Train Accident in China
– FYI…Japanese Shinkansen Bullet Train, which has carried over 10 billion passengers since launched in 1964, is only bullet train service in the world without any accident!
All this is happening because of mindless fad of Copy West Consumerism agenda leaving behind beautiful 5000+ years’ Chinese legacy & culture…To understand why this Boom & Doom is happening in China or in West, we need to understand 2 basic approaches of human development, a country adopts, which directly depends on its Faith/ Belief systems…
West (Top-Bottom) Vs East (Bottom-Up) Lifestyle:
Top-Bottom approach – Western (Abrahmic 2500+ years traditions)
Bottom-Top approach – Eastern/Indian (Dharmic 12000+ years traditions)
In Top-Down approach, top leaders/rulers/Elites plan lifestyle for masses as per their Agenda followed by Propaganda & PR machineries…This approach might be suitable for Western Abrahmics traditions but not eastern Sanatan Dharmic Traditions (Hinduism/Buddhist/Jains/Sikhs) in Asia, where generally Bottom-UP approach works i.e. people decides what they want, rulers/politicians/leaders must plan policies accordingly!
Another important belief comparison, Western Abrahmic tradition focuses more on Objective things than Subjective….Eastern/Indian Dharmic tradition focuses more on Subjective things than Objective!
Thus BIG construction (Objective / visually) or Expensive Project means Good in Abrahmic tradition…not necessarily true for Dharmic tradition. Dharmic way says, if Big is needed build it, if not required don’t waste resources just for Objective show-off!
Since last 5000+ years China is like India’s cultural brother & partner with presence of ancient Hinduism/Buddhism (Dharmic) lifestyle, which is Bottom-Up approach….
Suddenly, since last 30 years, China tried to copy West (Abrahmics Top-bottom) & trying to destroy last 5000 years of social lifestyle without analyzing impact on Social, Emotional & Economical level on people.
Such transformations from “Bottom-Top” to “Top-Bottom” should take slowly in 100 years only if people demands for it… else it would be stressful & wasteful for country.
Ancient Hindu civilization had well planned cities with underground drainage system, planned houses and water channels to every home, etc as per their need.
See Dholavira-Gujarat excavations in India or Mohanjodaro-Harappa cities flourished on the banks of Saraswati & Sindhu Rivers (what west deliberately propagates it as separate Indus civilization to break it from continuous 12000+ years old mother Hindu civilization).
In 19th century, Chandigadh and Gandhinagar planned cities (typical western Top-Bottom approach) were built in India during British time, but till date they couldn’t be important cities in India…However, well planned areas or new suburbs, as per people’s demand (Bottom-Top approach), near big City are popular in Indian cities like Navi Mumbai (New Bombay) or Delhi-NCR, or in Banglaloru, Hydrabad, etc…
Recently, Lavasa near Pune/Mumbai was built as planned city (Top-Bottom approach) in heart of Sayandri hills and riverside, but it is not yet popular as it’s far away from old city. It is now just weekend hangout spot for Pune people to see landscapes and riverside!…Kinnda Ghost city of India??
Lavsa City-near Pune
See- India plans to upgrade top 100 cities as SMART cities as per demand
Hope Indians are learning lessons from this…mindless copying of West is a disaster!
Yes..this also shows too much Materialism & Consumerism destroys civilization!
Since 50 years, West/Americans have Digested / Appropriated Hindu yoga from India,now branding it as “American Yoga” and deliberately disconnecting from original Hindu/Indian Yoga source! (See 2 clips below)
But, in accord with typical US Materialistic Culture, American Yoga is also highly commercialized and looked upon only as Fame/Business/Money making machine ($10 billion annual market, over 20 million daily practitioners in USA alone & growing very fast) rather than its true blissful Intangible benefits.
Western/American Civilization approach toward life is very OBJECTIVE and MATERIALISIC (external) based…so anything you teach them they will make it quick MONEY/ FAME oriented or business related! More as Career than (Internal/Eternal Hindu way) Knowledge source, Mental Peace, Consciousness, Spiritual or Self-less Service/SEVA!
Many crazy westerners join few months of Hindu Yog training from Hundu/Indian teachers and then open some ‘XYZ Yoga” studio in America/West, claming one as Expert/ Guru / Yogi/ Yogini, etc to mint money by fooling ignorant/innocent people.
Thus, American Yoga became just name, not TRUE 6000+ years old Hindu Yoga practice!
YOG, an integral Hindu way of life in 12000+ years old Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism) civilization in India.
Hindu YOG lifestyle, exactly opposite to western thinking, is Scientifically & Systematically designed by our Hindu Rishis/Sages – Kapil Muni, Maharshi Patanjali & others to get rid of BHOG (Materialism) and ROG (Diseases).
Thus, Many Yoga teachers in America made their Yoga practices totally worthless as per true Yoga principles! It has become just substitution to Aerobics or Gym, without inner benefits of Body-Mind-Soul-Cosmos (BRAHMAN stage) Union, which is core of Hindu Yog-Sutras.
You may not find many authentic Hindu/Indian Yoga studios in USA, because Hindus knew since start that Americans doing Yoga wrong!
Recently, CBS This Morning show has raised this issue in small story to realize what’s wrong with American yoga practitioners, how they are doing yoga wrong!
Why Indians say Americans are doing yoga wrong
How West/Americans trying to Digest/ Appropriate/ Colonized Yoga
Here Mr Malhotra exposed how west is trying to Digest / Appropriate yoga practices and claming as if their own inventions as Mind Scinces, Mindfulness, Holistic Lifestyle, etc.
Correction- Its YOG not YOGA, westerners have pronunciation problem with Indian Sanskrit words. They add extra “A” to Indian names. e.g. Ram became RamA, Krishn became KrishnA, Dharm became DharmA, Karm became KarmA, etc.
Similarly, western civilization Digested/Appropriated many cultural practices from other non-western civilization like African, Native Americans, Old Native Europeans , Asians, etc but arrogantly propagated as their own culture and later finished the original source (competition) by claming it uncivilized/ Satanic/ Demonic!
Even many western festivals are from ancient non-western civilization, they copied/digested/appropriated and claimed monopoly over that!
Hindu color festival -“HOLI” is now celebrated in west (again wrongly) without giving credit or true information about its Hindu/Indian roots.
Western Hypocrisy – West will hit heavily on other country if anyone uses their Patent, Copyright, Trademark etc but same thing shouldn’t be applicable on them when they shamelessly copy and brand it as their own??
Westerners who understood True Hindu Yoga:
See Mr. Adam Carney from USA, who learnt Yoga from Hindu guru, is urging US people to learn authentic Yoga which is nice humble, non-materialistic and healthy way of life.
Bring a Humble Indian Yoga Teacher to America
Ms Stephanie Quirk, a New Zealander-qualified as a psychiatric nurse in NZ, is Pune India based BSK Iyengar Yoga student/teacher since 1987. Listen her experience of Indian/Hindu Yoga. She quotes “..before coming to Yoga…the Unimportant things were too Important in my Life and actual fact those thing lost their meaning…those things lost their importance (after Yoga)..”
Yoga gives Purpose and Meaning to Life..”Yoga is Philosophy, Science and Art – BSK Iyengar”
It seems, no matter how many hours of authentic training and lectures you give to such Materialistic /Self-centered/quick fame oriented westerners; very few will understand the importance of YOG in life as Inner Intuitive connection, Consciousness, Body-Mind-Soul-Cosmos Union!
Will they ever show some curtsey to Respect/Give credit to original authentic Hindu source??

Know in 7 minutes, why China’s market crashed and its impact on World!
Materialism/Greed is distroying whole Western civilization, why Asians are also running after this Crap Self-destructive Culture?
Follow safe & proven Traditional (non-stock based) investments i.e Gold-Family-Land and save yourself…
Sad, about 90 million (9 Cr) middle class Chinese lost over $3 trillions in 2 weeks by crashing Stock over 30% (more than 2008 US crash in such short period)! Many also took heavy loan to invest in stock!

Feminism is portrayed as cause for Equality, but actually destroying societies in West (see clips and reports below). Equality is not Women dominating Men (as past revenge), in the name of Women Empowerment! Study shows its breaking families and not good for both Women and Men. Some agents of west in India are desperately propagating this biased Western Feminism fad to “white-wash” Indians.
