At least some of this is because people are translating concepts and concepts are difficult to translate, even if you're fluent in both languages. A churidar is mostly a pair of tights, except they are not the same because tights don't have the, well, the churi. The details get lost. 
In an earlier post I shared an important message from Sri Aurobindo, from a letter he wrote to his brother in April 1920. He wrote: "I believe that the main cause of India’s weakness is not subjection, nor poverty, nor a lac...

Yes, I get that. I even agree with it.

Camac's high-ranking version of FEMA worked so well, it was one of the few things that survived the collapse of empire. :-)


#AtoZchallenge
Maintaining a far-flung empire without instant communication and rapid transport has always been a problem. Rulers, of necessity, have to delegate. Camac’s rule was no different: it was up to trusted governors in remote areas...

True. Can't write - or do anything else - if you give up.
Happy pony. It never gives up. Made this after Chuck Wendig suggested the internet needed more small pony pics.   We all have our share of heartache when it comes to writing or whatever dreams that we pursue. You don't get e...

So I wrote this book, see? 
It's Karen Memory book day! *Oils up the shiny hype machine.* *Brings it to pressure.* *Checks that all gears are functional.* So I wrote this book, see? It's a steampunk adventure set in a fictional city in the Pacific Northwest during the Alaskan Gold Rush. It stars a young woman who goes by…

When I use it with textmaker, sometimes words appear in the keyboard that show up elsewhere in the document and not where the curser currently is. It doesn't matter where I put the curser, these wrong words don't go away.

I uninstall and install myScript Stylus, but nothing changes.

It only goes away when I uninstall and install Textmaker.

This has happened three times already.

Is there a solution, other than uninstalling and installing Textmaker? I have a Nexus 10 and the latest version of KitKat.

If it's hard to do in the early levels of education, it would hard later on, wouldn't it? Because in India kids have to pick a field type in high school and they focus on only that. And stuff like that would be outside the sciences. 
As I mentioned in an earlier post one of the aims of a true Indian education should be to help learners come to a realization that they are deeply and closely connected with the larger world, the larger humanity around them. ...

+Sonia Lal Thanks for your comment. I think you may slightly misunderstood what I was trying to convey, or I may have not been fully clear. I said that it may not be advisable to expose younger learners to the cross-cultural learning material that is often prepared from the perspective of a "hostile critic" because their minds may not be mature enough to fully understand the reasons for such a criticism. And they may simply end  up with more prejudices and biases toward another culture, or their own. 

And as for the other point, I don't think cross-cultural learning has to be introduced only as a separate subject (though in higher levels of education, such a subject may be there for those interested to pursue such a study at deeper level). In middle school, high school and even undergraduate education, a meaningful crosscultural study can be made a part of every subject stream, including sciences. It is a matter of creative presentation of the study material, for the most part.

I read this. It gets an A for diversity. I think I gave it a 3 over all. Lots of action.

Hoping today's #atozchallenge is less confused than I feel.
Queer fiction and LGBT fiction is the same fiction, isn't it? Otherwise this whole post is wrong. Very wrong. Since LGBT (or GLBT. whichever.) does not start with Q. They better be the same fiction...

It doesn't matter, except where it is not safe and than probably does matter.

Is it? Well I have hardly heard the word used at all so . . . I never actually thought of it as derogatory.
