Naan Kadavul

There are a million reviews of this movie in the Tamil blogosphere. I am not adding to them. The movie shocks the viewer, bringing him face to face with the reality he is happy to deny.

The movie's two main characters are Rudran, the aghori ascetic and Thandavan, the beggar mafia don. Thandavan sustains the body of the beggars, but destroys their soul. Rudran, on the other hand destroys the body and frees the soul. May be that is the meta movie writer Jeyamohan (on whose novel a part of the movie is based) talks about. Or may be it is the imagination of my messed up mind. The movie is guaranteed to mess up your mind for atleast a few hours. If you are ready for that, do see the movie.

How USA can Save 145,000,000,000 Dollars Every Year


The USA contributes USD 145 Billion every year to fund Christian Missionaries across the world. Churches across the world spend USD 1.1 Billion towards research aimed at achieving religious conversions. This is for propaganda material in 300 languages about 180 topics. Books and articles are printed in 500 languages. They total 175000. Every conversion costs USD 3300. It does not mean that this amount reaches the Convert. It is the expense incurred in activities related to administration, planning and implementation of the conversion programme. In 1500 A.D, there were 30,00,000 active Christian Missionaries. Their number stands at 64,80,00,000 today. 54% of these people are non-Whites. The strategy is to train non-Whites, provide them with funds and involve them in religious conversions. This is similar to the time when the British employed Indians as Soldiers to rule India!

It costs 145 billion dollars to operate global Christianity, records a book on evangelization. The Church commands 4,000,000 full time Christian workers, it runs 13,000 major libraries, it publishes 22,000 periodicals, it operates 1,800 Christian Radio and TV stations. It runs 1,500 universities and 930 research centers. It has 250,000 foreign missionaries and over 400 institutions to train them. These are 1989 numbers. No wonder Church needs Nazi gold looted from Jews of Europe and drug money to support this gigantic multinational operation.

This idea also wins India's trust by eliminating Evangelical Terrorism.

At last, saw the movie. The movie was even more disturbing when I "post mortem" it. Along with Mahanadhi & Guna this will go under "not for repeat viewing without being mentally prepared"
