#189 I have manfully borne the terrific heat of my country

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Ms. Christina Greenstidel in June 1901:-

"...I have manfully borne the terrific heat of my country in the plains, and now I am facing the deluging rains of my country. ..."

*Manful in bearing the heat of India? Didn't the 360 million Indians (population of India in those days) of his days endure it? Was Vivekananda an exception?
*Swami always went in search of cool stations like Ooty, Mount Abu, Almora, Darjeeling, Murre, Dehradun, Almora, Switzerland etc.
*Numerous examples are available for this cooling himself fanatism.
*Today India's population is 1100 million. At least 1090 million bear the heat of India. They do not have Air conditioners or coolers or they do not live at hill stations.

Thank you for your appreciation.

How to get Google adsense: You can register at the Google site. You will find help and other useful information there. If you need further help, pl. write another comment here.

Important: Though I have Google Adsense at all my blogs, I did not so far get the first 100 dollar minimum remittance. I can never really earn anything, because my writings will not attract ordinary readers. What I write are all criticisms and sceptical. I have my own special mission which is not money making. The object of having Google Adsense is to recover cost of rents I pay in the Cyber Cafes. Working with Adsense from Jan. 2006, I realised: It is not possible. Hence now I pay from my pocket.

I suggest: Kindly write something which will interest ORDINARY people. For my Sankaracharya blog I get good number of readers because there is not MUCH criticism in it.

I welcome your suggestions.
