Lol. Never actually understood what the USAians are Thanksgiving for. I guess they take it for granted that everybody knows. I'm sure there are Brit (and maybe now Indian) things that I can't imagine need explaining!

I'd certainly join in, though, because I love eating turkey. And I don't get Christmas in England any longer.

I came across a philosopher recently (audio broadcast on the plane!) Who thought Christians were weird way back then. He particularly couldn't understand the death wish. He said, all they had to do was go and cheer at the annual sacrifice and nobody would give a damn who or what they worshipped at home!

This guy also wrote a dialogue about how people like lies. He based it on a visit to a sick friend and encountering a house full of visitors all discussing the useless remedies that would certainly cure the sick man.

Nothing changes! He'd have been uncomfortably at home 2000 years later!

Anybody got a clue of the name? I've forgotten

So, with certain religions you can't lose. Survive: praise the lord. Die: glorious martyrdom. I wouldn't mind so much if they were happy with just their own deaths. It's the others they kill along the way.

Coconuts and 25 years



An 83-yr-old anthropologist recalls his years of waiting, numerous visits, and many gifts, including a pig and buckets, leading up to one solitary meeting with them one fine day...

https://indianexpress.com/article/in...years-5463013/

In another interview, he expressed surprise at the incident -

"How do you read the recent incident of an American national, John Allen Chau, being killed by the Sentinelese people?
I feel sad over the tragedy that happened in North Sentinel island. But I am surprised the Sentinelese killed the American. They are not hostile people. They warn; they don’t kill people, including outsiders. They don’t raid their neighbours. They only say, ‘leave us alone.’ They make it amply clear that outsiders are not welcome in their habitat."

They do kill intruders. Rust has been in the news before.

Of course, anyone who went there and didn't get killed won't have got in the news, so we don't know.

They have apparently even fired at a helicopter with arrows going up to a hundred feet, if I remember what I read yesterday right.

Long before Pandit, a British naval officer Maurice Portman landed with armed contingent and abducted six sentinels, including four children. The adults died soon, and the children were returned back. This perhaps laid the foundation for them being hostile.

It was never a good idea to contact sentinel people, or any other tribe for that matter, Mr pandit would agree too. The condition of another tribe, the Jarawa, who the modern world has brought within its fold is very very sad.

Just see the video how tourist now treat these people, who were so brave and had an identity. Now they beg . The plight of Jarawa is now a common sight in Andaman who have nothing now except to be displayed as some exotic artifacts.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

perhaps they’re somehow aware of the fate of other tribes in the andaman and nicobar islands? even if not they’re smart enough to know to resist contact

The Nicobar Islands have a completely different ethnic make-up and history. Their indigenous populations seem to be thriving.

Yes. But no. I mean, if people had landed there safely last week/month/year, that would not have made an at-the-time headline.

As in, I might never even have heard of the place if I had not seen and remembered one or two news items, over the past decade, of people who were killed or attacked on the beach there.
