  1. A late African leader has written as follows: When the Europeans came to our country, they had the Bibles in their hand and we had the land. They gave us the Bible and taught us how to meditate with our eyes close. After a time, when we opened our eyes, we found that we have the Bible in our hands and the Europeans had all our lands.
    Indians have now come to teach Yoga to even Ranil, we know we will have Yoga but we don’t know what other assets they will acquire from our land.
