Pratap Bhanu Mehta Indian Express: Monday, December 24, 2007 8:14 AM]
[God did not declare who are “scheduled” to be in the SC/ST list or determine the cut off for “socially, economically, culturally or educationally” backward. It is a creation of man. Shruthi Rajagopalan]
[...real, most authoritative scripture is in the heart in which the Eternal has His dwelling. It is in our inner spiritual experiences that we shall find the proof and source of the world's Scriptures, the law of knowledge, love and conduct, the basis and inspiration of Karmayoga.
