good stuff and its great how they are getting kids involved and making them aware of the environment and nature. 

Here in the UK the first think asians do when they buy a house is get rid of the grass and cut down all the trees and cover the garden in concrete slabs!  and leave a patch to grow thniya and palak

No I haven't seen your garden lol. Is it nice and green? 

Ours is all concrete lol.

When i was a kids we had a nice garden. We had a really big plum tree, and then another tree, rose bushes, a pond at the back etc  

And then they cut all the trees down and built one of those rooms that asians have in the back of the garden and extended the house into the garden and got rid of the pond! 

I skip in the garden with a rope and iv made the concrete slabs go all wonky lol.

It looks a lot better when it actually looks like a garden doesn't lol. 

I can't call grey slabs a garden lol! 

My Mothers brother in Birmingham moved to a new house around 15 years back, it was a beautiful bungalow really spacious and the garden was just beautiful. They had so many trees and plants, and also those chinese/Japanese trees. Big pond as well. Part of the garden was all pebbles and there was a smaller pond and it had tadpoles swimming in it lol. They had a bench with those wooden frame things over it with vines growing on it. Everything was arranged really nicely, it looked like one of those artistic gardens. 

And they just cut down every single tree and plant and now it just looks like a field! Just a plain field. Now their planning to get rid of the pond.

The lady they got the house from would be horrified if she saw the garden now.

    • It's even important to realise that most of ancient texts , ancient meaning here pre 500 BC are so old that the context they probably are centred around got lost in passages of time.  So all you have left is a piece of a wider puzzle and although translations are done , I swear some of these Upanishads especially oldest ones are so riddlesome it takes a nice context to understand them. For instance , brihadaranyaka (big forest) Upanishad , one of the oldest , starts with mention of a sacrificial horse , metaphor for creation.  While today the text is almost universally taken as a vedantic and spiritual philosophical treatise,  it's important to remember this upanishad itself is a text within another brahminical ritual text called "shatpatha brahman".  So it might not have been a ritual-less, philosophy oriented text 2500 yrs ago.  Point is : if the context and culture of the scripture is lost , it will become very difficult to retrieve its original message.  Take in terms of Guru Granth Sahib, if suppose all traces of  bridal culture were lost , how would one make understanding of suhagan concepts in GGS. 
    • The difference between the Rajputs and Jat  (they are largely the same stock) is that Rajputs accepted Brahmin authority whereas Jatts didnt. 
    • Why do you reckon that's become a trend; this desire to dodge certain responsibilities and perpetually extend adolescence? I don't think it's something that's unique to us, by the way. I think it's happening to males across the world. Maybe a frustrated or petulant reaction to the slipping of the veil that we do in fact live in a female-oriented society with its requisite values (despite what the TV and other sources try to gaslight us into believing otherwise)?
    • Wasn't Ravaan a Brahmin though? Considering he was Brahmas great grandson or something like that.  Tamils and other southern people are quite anti Bamhan. 
    • Yeah I had to remind my mother not to go around and give samosas and jalebia to our Tamil neighbours on Dushera and Diwali !!
