Random religious picks

My Alma Mater is seems to be a Jewish addicted. I am not damn sure but with the array of people wearing the black skull cap in the campus, sporadic Jewish holidays and cafeterias ornamented with kosher munchies, I do believe my guess is somewhat correct!

Probably these religious hookups have encouraged the school to have a room for preaching scientology and etc. Early summer I and CD were walking through a place called “commons” (basically all Tee and school merchandise shops) in the campus and suddenly saw a glimpse of a “Bengali” book beside a glass window. Before we could read the heading and the author name and guess what is the book all about two women came out quickly from the room and invited us to do a “free” stress test. Me and CD (presumably!) did not have any clues about scientology except names of few *s (Mr. Holmes) related to this dogma. Anyway we had a brief introduction, education and “free” stress test with the two devotees. Without any squabbles, we both hit the zenith of the stress-meter (actually watching that made me tensed) and were guaranteed that we can reduce the same by reading a book (or watching a DVD). So what else scientology can do for you? Well reducing the stress of mind is nothing, it can be such a powerful tool that can substitute any medication you need, can take care of your skin and actually your life in detail (one of the women commented – psychology is nothing!) cut a story shorter, somehow we managed to escape with full assurance that next time definitely we are going to watch the DVD etc.

After the brief education and suffering from the high stress (indeed) me and CD met our deer quiz mate K in a break. After listening to this small anecdote K commented, man that S is not fad anymore, you guys should try Kabbalah or the Shinto’s....


Hence some religious tracks…
Kalighat – (from the album Kali’s Son; a Must buy for all)
Havah Nagilah (a Hebrew folk track, from Warts and All Vol. 4 – Moe.)
Bodhisattva (Countdown to ecstasy – the Dan)
Cole’ Law (SKB – 06/19/04 – the Tralf; Buffalo ..for the sake of record I and CD were present in the show :))

Hey, you should start using to podcast these tracks directly from your blog. Very easy :

1) Go to and register
2) Use the "Odeo Studio" feature to upload tracks you want to play
3) Once the track is loaded, you can embed the player in your post by copying the HTML code (provided to you when the track has been saved - scroll down to look for it) into your post.

Try it. Two benefits :
1) Much more likely that readers will hear the tracks
2) You dont have to give away the tracks - saving your ass, somewhat, from the copyright police, should they somehow appear (I am very paranoid - ki korbo? old dog, old tricks)

Good selection! Listening to that Cole's Law right now. Do you have any reccos for the SB site?

Kudos to SKB (in spite of the vile sound the abbreviation resonates!).

FYI...the Scientology outfit is outgrowing its niche on the second floor. These days most of the time they are looking for prey (equipped with all their paraphernalia) right in front of our dhoom corner! I get stressed everytime I pass them!
