Appallingly Disproportionate Pride about the Vedas and Smritis
In north India and among Brahmins in the south there is this kind of pride. One of he Rigvedic Rishis solemnly prays to Pushan to protect him on his journey and PROVIDE HIM WITH A SUPPLY OF FAIR DAMSELS – Rig Veda, IX, 67,10. Is there any ascetic (rishi) in any other culture?!!! The author points out such blemishes in our culture. He castigates the caste system also that is celebrated in the Smritis. He also mentions such shameful facts as the birth outside of wedlock of so many important personages of Mahabharatha like the Pandavas, etc.
