    This is the most BEAUTIFUL interview ever conducted by madhu. Just great. its only because of existence of such diversified ideas of sustaining that This World never falls short of being a social science laboratory. every line in the interview is so multilateral that deciphering will never cease to operate. The stratification inside a man is far far humble, real, humane and optimistic than the stratification outside. We are in need of replacement and people like jerry pinto are the ones who can be a hallmark of the process. Thanks madhu. I lambasted badly on your last interview,but this one has put that into the drains.

    Jerry is on the verge of knowing his purpose in life & what god is. I feel he doesnt want to know that, anymore! God bless

    Hmmmm…nice interview. Jerry, on the God thing, please delve a little into the psychology of religion by Jung, and why the Divinity keeps turning up all around the globe.

    Really…..Madhu….only an Idiot of highest order would say that Shri Krishna is justifying killing and our “culture” is all about giving justification. Prolly for you the hindu culture is asking for spitting on the road and justifying it! Blame it on “god” on “religion”. Have no sense of accountability of any sort. Would a good christian/hindu/muslim/jew/parsi go around spitting and indulge in shameful behaviour in first place. Would an atheist who wants to be a good human being make fun of a mentally sick person? Naaa….lets forget all that. Let blame Allah, Jesus, Krishna…those whom you can’t “see”….why blame that fool whom you can see? If J.C. or Allah or Krishna was around, he/she would say, shame on you Madhu for standing around and watching. Your job was to slap and shame the person instead of turning apathetic eye and blaming me.

    What a careless, shameful statment to make!!!
