ISKCON Gita is distorted

There must be over a thousand translations of Bhagwad Gita. Each one is biased in some way. But Gita by ISKCON is pretty distorted in interpretation. It not only suggests that God is strictly male, it also mixes up Hindu mythology to confuse ordinary people like me. It just serves followers of Lord Vishnu and declares everyone else is a demi god. That includes Lord Shiva, and Mother Kali as well.


I have read few versions of Gita to understand the ways of God, assuming God is one and addressed by different names. But the ISKCON Gita by Prabhupada is misleading and deliberately confusing. As I have asked before too, who named God?

Google vs Internet Privacy - A Rant

Google Plus also compromised 500,000 accounts and is now closing down. It was a waste of money from the beginning. But they wanted to beat facebook. Ultimately, they not only sold our data, they let 3rd party apps steal data and in repentance, are closing it down.

Orkut was better but they closed it to start Google Plus. Their gChat was a hit and it would have ruled until now, at least, but they closed it down to bring in Google Hangouts that nobody ever used.

Now people don't need hangouts or Google Duo type of apps. Current cell technology can make video calls on its own, without the need for any app.

I am sure their driverless cars venture will also be closed. Tesla motors are already on roads in autopilot mode. Google is still making cars on paper. It will be obsolete before they announce manufacturing of Google Carz.

I dunno who all are funding Google and why. They waste so much money. But they make 100 times more by selling user data to networking companies and likes of Cam…
