Outrage as Indian guru blames gang rape victim
AFP: A popular Indian spiritual guru has sparked a backlash after saying a 23-year-old student could have averted a murderous gang-rape by begging for mercy from her attackers. Self-styled godman Asharam, known to his followers as Bapu, or father, told his devotees on Tuesday that blame for the assault on a moving bus in New Delhi on December 16 should not just rest with her attackers.

“This tragedy would not have happened if she had chanted God’s name and fallen at the feet of the attackers. The error was not committed by just one side.” WTF? It’s a good thing major publications are ripping him for that stance.

I hate people.

Bahauddin Maqbara, Junagadh, Gujarat

Maqbara was built around 1586, the tomb of Qutbuddin (the army general of the great king Akbar) has beautiful windows carved in stone; there is an old step-well in the large grounds surrounding it. Maqbara is one of the oldest Mughal monuments of the city. 

I was enchanted by this building the first time I saw it and I still am. Amazing.

Nuwan Kulasekara hits during his blistering 73 - Australia v Sri Lanka, Brisbane, CB Series 1st final, March 4, 2012
UNBELIEVABLE. ASTOUNDING. HEROIC. INSPIRING. GAME-CHANGING. SPECTACULAR. 
Just a few words to describe the absolutely insane turnaround by Nuwan Kulasekara. 
LIONS ROAR!!!!!! 

David Warner batted amazingly well today but to be honest when this happened, I started to wonder what the fuck was so amazing that he even did, lol. Man of the match in my heart goes to the man above. Bias and all, I am extremely proud of the outcome today. What heart we have.
