The History of Yoga ...

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/25/books/review/Mishra-t.html

Well, two books that details the story of Yoga's growth in the U.S. Pankaj Mishra has written an elegant review of the books.

To continue my line of thought, how wonderful to see Americans pursuing this apparently ancient Indian ... thing? whatever ... with some passion ... along with their many, many different passions of course even as the young Indian generation seeks to ape everything American included rap, hip-hop and the variegated hairstyles of the rebel American youth ...

It's all good!!!

One thought: will a future come to pass when folks in Europe and America start eating with their hands while Indians finally learn to use elaborate cutlery to perform the same activity of ingesting food ... ummmm, I think not likely, but then stranger stuff have become reality ...
