  1. hi,
    excellent post sir, thanks for the same. but the sad truth is that do we really get to take over properly after flying half way through the globe(sometimes 24hrs) n joining ship immediately?

  2. Dear Sir,
    Apologies for an off the track question . But something known as Agharta , some land of advanced species has caught my interest these days. Kindly throw light on this.

    Thanks and Regards,

    1. hi vijay,

      i want you to first punch into google search MADAME HELENA PETROVNA BLAVATSKY A CON WOMAN VADAKAYIL.

      A Jew theosophist , the Russian artist, philosopher and explorer, Nicholas Roerich, ( Nikolai Konstantinovich Rerikh ) , claimed that Lhasa, capital of Tibet, was connected by a tunnel with Shamballah, capital of the subterranean empire of Agharta.

      He claimed ( all bull ) that the entrance of this tunnel was guarded by lamas who were sworn to keep its actual whereabouts a secret from outsiders, by order of the Dalai Lama.

      He was a friend of Tagore, Nehru and Edwina ( Rothschild) Mountbatten.

      On his memorial in the Kullu Valley is inscribed "Here, on December 15, 1947, the body of Maharishi Nicholas Roerich – a great Russian friend of India – was committed to fire. Let there be peace."

      He has a mountain top and a minor planet named after him-- as you can see he is sponsored. He was nominated for Nobel prize several times. You and me dont fall in this privelaged bracket, right?

      In 1945, his son Svyatoslav Roerichst married Indian actress Devika Rani, the grand niece of Rabindranath Tagore , who played the role of Kasturi in “Achhut Kanya”.

      His Lhasa expedition was funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and organized through the help of then Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace ( later, vice president with US president , Jew FD Roosevelt ), a student of Roerich . He designed the Illuminati eye.

      His wife Helena Shaposhnikova Roerich in 1899 , was the first person to translate Blavatsky's THE SECRET DOCTRINE.

      AGHARTA is all bull -- grab eyeballs every which way!!

  3. Hi Sir,

    I have read that mahatma gandhi article....It was really shocking...I have unlearnt many things.....

    I believe in rajiv dixit totally....He was a person of great knowledge like you....

    He said Nehru is a stooge.....
    But he said gandhi is a good person.......As far as I know he has got ample amount of historic knowledge....

    Was he misguided or he kept silent on this mahatma conspiracy.....

    rajiv dixit also stated that
    1)Gandhi said"congress should be disbanded after the elections"
    2)The first bil l to be passed is closing the slaughter houses tpo protect cow..
    3)The angreziyat should be rooted out ASAP

    Is rajiv dixit using gandhi tool (whom people belive like GOD) to enlighten them to do good things....

    I have no doubt on Rajiv dixit

    Can you throw some light on this..??

    And sir one more thing...

    I am pretty much clear about many stooges(recently ambedkar and gandhi himself)
    What I smell rat is about subramaniam swamy(who alway hijacks the cases on govt and eventually lose them)

    I would be grateful if you enlighten me...

    1. hi,

      i can say that rajiv dixit was a DESH BHAKT.

      even today who had dared to expose gandhi and ambedkar?

      the moment rajiv dixit speaks against gandhi, he will lose 90% of his followers.

      after world war 2 , and the state of israel was carved out, rothschild , the real king of the british raj, had no more use for gandhi.

      after independence nehru , patel and mountbatten sidelined gandhi-- and he was quite bitter about it.

      if subramanian swamy had NOT exposed sonia gandhi, she would have been the PM of India instead of manmohan singh.

      the family does NOT dare to sue swamy for defamation as then all dirty linen will be washed in indian courts -- when they go out of power.

      what you suspect is legitimate.

      there are lot of people who have exposed rothschild and illuminati. suddenly they start talking shit, about aliens etc -- and then people start doubting.

      today we hindus worship veer vinayak savarkar. nobody knows that he had a quid pro quo secret deal with the british , which his brother ganesh abarao savarkar never did.

      IN INDIA WE WORSHIP FALSE GODS.

      people are ignorant. i doubt rajiv dixit ever heard of a name by the name of rothschild . you get killed even for knowing this name.

    2. Sir, Rajiv Dixit mentioned "Rothschild" one of his lecture. Long days before i listened it. so don't doubt on rajiv dixit. You can download and listen his audio lectures may be you already listened but keep listening if i got that lecture again i will send you. And one more request i think you may like download and read this book "Christianity : The Deadliest Poison" by OSHO Download Here :

  4. Really thankful to you sir........

    sir you have mentioned many times that sonia gandhi will not come to power again....Then who is the alternative ....Is it Narendra Modi......
    1)What do u say on narendra modi??Is he the next PM of ourcountry??

    What are ur estimations in 2014???

    2)I have read ur articl"Iam proud to be hindu" padte hi mera rooh khush hogaya....

    I have got a big doubt here...

    ISKCON was founded by prabhupada.....
    Now tell me sir,what is the need for propagating our culture on them..?
    was he succesful?I don't think so as He was murdered by his disciples and the whole bhagavadgita is tampered in such a way that the gist is saying something else now....

    and iskcon is building temples in india with the money of indians and buildng hotels,restaurants,lodges near to those temples....
    Is this an FDI in services sector....??


    3)We had the mantra

    "Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
    Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare"

    now after chaitanya prabhu has made changes to it by modifying the order of Mantra

    "Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
    Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare"

    In Iskcon,They say we don't have to pray to other gods shiva,lord venkateshwara..etc as we are praying t
    he supreme personality of godhead krishna..........

    What do u think about this........

    Please answer me clearly as I have got these doubts since many days and I hope ur answers may clear my doubts

    1. hi,

      if narendra modi rules india for 20 years at a stretch, india will overtake USA. none of the western countries want this. the traders british east india company whom we kicked out in 1947 are now back in full force. axis bank is theirs.

      iskon while under prabhupada spread krishna consciousness , which attracted a lot of christians to convert into hinduism. his organisation was infiltrated and his own western disciples murdered him by poisoning. now they are spreading western type of hinduism.

      again if you go to the no 1 expert in hindusim in indi, he cannot explain hinduism the way adi shankaracharya did it.

      at the bottom of my post- punch into google search

      PROUD TO BE HINDU PROUD TO BE INDIAN VADAKAYIL,

      --i have explained ADWIATA and DWAITA hindusim is just 2 paras. this is the essence of hinduism. even vivekananda did NOT get it right, probably his foundation of physics was not upto the level of adi shankaracharya who existed 4000 years ago..

      can you believe this NIKOLA TESLA understood hinduism. nobody in the world knows today that nikola tesla's invention is still no 1 . it can never be superceeded. YES -- HE INVENTED AC ELECTRICITY AND AC MOTORS, WHICH THE WOLRD WORLD USES.

      tesla would have introduced free scalar energy of hinduism ( brahmAn ) . but people tried to steal it for military pruposes , and so he kept it in his head till be died. his is this planets ONLY MARTYR. today islamic terrorists think that by blowing themselves up, they can be martyrs.

      iskon is based on krishna consciousness. their mantra hare krishna charges the human body. in western countries krishna devotees dance the whole day in ecstasy. krishna is the 8th avatar of vishnu.

      in DWAITA form of hinduism vishnu is the middle prong SATTWA -- the preserver -- the mediator -- of shiva's trishul.

      shiva is destroyer and brahma is creator--forming the yin-yang prongs or tamas rajas prongs.

      in hinduism you can imaginve brahmAn ( the morphogenetic consciousness FIELD ) in any form you want. this is the charm of hinduism . you choose your ishta deva or devi.

      only an IDIOT like darwin will think that braahmAn does not exists.

      how does a speck of sperm become you -- the most complicated thinking machine on this planet ? by monkey play ?

      yes --

      it is good that indians know about all this.

      or our grandchildren will become slaves again.

      yes -- i have NOT seen anybody telling rothschild's name till today in a public discourse or in the media.

      brinda karat had tried to fix swami ramdev saying that muham body parts are mixed in his ayurvedic medicines.

      brinda karat's sister radhika roy runs foreign funded NDTV--

  9. Pranam, Mr.Ajit Vadakayil.
    I have some queries. Could you please answer it.
    1) What are ur views on Hindu Rashtra?
    2) Did you know rajiv dixit personally? Why didnt he go against Gandhi if he knew about him?
    3) I believe that Taj Mahal is a Hindu Temple. Do you? And wht abt Kaaba? I think its also the same.
    4) Do you believe in the theory that Nehru is a descendant of Mughals?
    6) Is India on lease till 2047?
    7) Could you give me a list of traitors like Gandhi, Ambedkar, Nehru, Jinnah, and very very shocking for me...Veer Savarkar? I had just saw his 2001 movie.
    8) Is there a friend left of the Hindu race? Not Americans, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis or Israel(as you stated). Is japan our friend?. And could you plz tell me the truth of Indo-Russian relations and Indo-Japanese?
    I am 16 yr old boy. Plz enlighten me, captain. I'm a proud Hindu brother of yours.

    Respected Captain,

    What is special about Tamil Nadu?

    How come it is able to continuously produce word geniuses like Ramanujam, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, C.V. Raman, A.R. Rahman, Abdul Kalam, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Viswanathan Anand, Illayaraja, etc?

    Even till recently the Chief Justice of India, the Finance Minister, the RBI governor are all Tamils?

    Is there any scientific reason behind this? Because no other region has produced such super genius people in such numbers.

    Regards

    hi ch,

    i am sure if i were a lawyer, i will NEVER EVER become CJI.

    i am sure if i were an economist, i will NEVER EVER become finance minister.

    you want me to continue ?

    when i was on my training ship in mumbai with 250 other cadets ( two years ) -- the biggest TELUs ( oily and slimy ) and SNEAKS ( snitches ) became SCC ( senior cadet captains ) , CC ( cadet captains ) , CL ( cadet leaders ) etc.

    i used to be in the CAPTAINS MONTHLY BREAKFAST PARTY ( cadet with maximum negative marks for OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES ) -- to be chewed up for breakfast every month .

    i got an EXTRA FIRST in every subject --except OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES.

    now what are OFFICER LIKE QUALITIES-

    being a son of a bit#h, being a sneak, being a hypocrite, being a as$ kisser , being a leader who will sell out his team, being a back biter, being an informer , being the best in playing to the gallery.

    so, so--

    at the passing out parade --most of the cadets who got all PRIXES were leaders -- they all got BOOOOOEEEEED !

    I remember i got only one prize--for being the best REPORTER IN ENGLISH -- the claps I got from the entire hall still resound in my ears -- along with another ROC ( royal officer cadet -who did NOT care to become a sold out leader ).

    and mind you -- i was in every single team which made my TOP ( starboard fore top ) the champion TOP.

    i was a champion sailor, rower, signaller, marks in subjects, soccer team in both years --

    but i lacked OLQ ( officer like qualities ) of being a FU#KIN' SLIME BALL.

    so in my passing our certificate , after two years of training -- i had an EXTRA FIRST in all subjects -- except OLQ where i was third grade

    so i guess they held a special meeting and GRACED ME TO FIRST CLASS --a young 18 year old boy -- .TEE HEEE !

    AT SEA, THE SAILORS DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR FOUR STRIPES- THEY ONLY CARE FOR WHO YOU ARE--

    AT SEA PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME , OR HAVE HEARD OF ME -- OR SAILED WITH ME, WILL VOUCH--

    CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL WAS A SLAVE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY FU#KIN' CAESAR -- BY LIGHT YEARS .

    this has now passed on to LORE -- never ti happen again in the annals of sea .

    am i boasting ?

    -- so be it !

    humility is NOT about having a low opinion of yourselves to please the JEALOUS party.

    see, this would have been part of my post-- GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED--

    you made me reveal it prematurely --with your TAMIL PRIDE ! TAKE IT EASY !

    This article is one of my favorite write ups on your blog..I read it almost monthly basis ...
    There is something seriously wrong with Indian mindsets..may be kind of cerebral disintegration due to centuries of slavery...This article & "MANAGING TIME" one...has to be BLUEPRINT CODE for young people like me in 30-45 group..because we are on the cusp of experiencing these issues..But strangely only 12 comments here and may be 5-10 there...But on the new "Fart" one there are 200+..
    Also Captain...These blogs are of days when the innocence was still preserved...Now a days too much of discussion is based out on Toilet Paper of India...too many trolls..too many sycophants...
    You wont believe i have this,time,humor management & that "Super typhoon bart" printed and stapled with me..brilliant content. There is one post which is SERIOUSLY awaited by many readers.."Good Upbringing of children"..you know general guidelines ..we all know all but Captain Style Mind Reformatting Guided Missile is what I am waiting..

    hi rk,

    every young indian about to take a corporate job must read the following posts compulsorily.

    STOP PRESS:

    I AM DELIGHTED TO READ AN ACCOUNT BY AN EX-CADET OF MY ALMA MATER -- A PAKISTANI .

    http://sayeedsjournal.wordpress.com/chapter-6-the-three-dufferin-years1939-41/

    our anthem was --

    We’re on the road, we’re on the road to anywhere,

    With never a heartache, with never a care.

    Got no home, got no friends,

    Thankful for everything the good Lord sends.



    We’re on the road, we’re on the road to anywhere,

    And every milestone seems to say,

    That the road to anywhere, the road to anywhere,

    Will lead to somewhere some day.

    WE HAD TENORS AND TONES -- FOR EACH LINE.

    once a minister in a dhoti , came to inspect a march past -- and we sang this anthem.

    HE CRIED-- WHY DO YOU SAY YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS ?

    I AM YOUR FRIEND -- HE WENT ON AN ON -- LITERALLY FROTHING FROM HIS MOUTH -

    we had our contingent for the 26th jan republic day march past in delhi .

    and we would have a photo session with the PM and President.

    how time flies !
