Yesterday there were stormy protests in UK against the participation of BNP leader Griffin at BBC talkshow.Racism and bigotry flourishes. At the sametime, VENKI Ramakrishnan the nobel laureate (for his work on molecular biology/ribosomes)this year, declared 10 days ago that nationality is an accident of birth and complained against the flood of E mails coming from India(his native country) and ridiculed the Indians for identifying with his glory all of a sudden (they did not bother much about him while he was living there)-Venki is right in condemning the Indians wanting to share his glory of Nobel Prize and his resentment of love and admiration showered on him in a choking way.
So nationality is an abstract concept without any reality.....
Any comments....

If any evil exists today, it is the most apparent evil -NATIONASLISM. At the altar of this abstract concept, many human lives are offerd as sacrificial lambs. Murders and wars continue. To understand the subtelities of this evil requires constant awareness and alertness.

Todays news in Tamil Paper-the Deputy chief Minister of Tamilnadu,Mr.Stalin, wants Tamils living inside Tamilnadu should get Nobel Prize,then only ,he would be satisfied.. what a load of rubbish Chauvinism...These are the guys who saw to it that brilliant and meritorious Brahmins and uppercaste youngsters did not get any opportunity for education&employment.They treat the meritorious as "jews" were treated by HITLER.Our hero VENKI is one of them.I can fully appreciate his irritation over the chauvinism of politicians who are utterly corrupt and would go any lenght to achieve their goals. This stupid Nationalism and the murdererous blood Nobel&co shed to make the money for this prize make me wonder...we are in---
