A little-known Maori philosophy
Thanks L-O-A

By John
This poor scholarship was really messing up my investigation into whether Maori believed in reincarnation. Unfortunately I have seen this poem quoted on other sites! I have found little evidence other than an indication that it have been the case in exceptional circumstances, eg some Tohunga may reincarnate for a very particular reason. This link: http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/theos/v12n01p11_ancient-wisdom-of-the-moaris.htmg gives some information, strangely from a Theosophcal site!

Bindra on a high

By Azad
Well is he on a "high" due to consumption of some hallucinatory stuff? Never heard of him serving the "Indian" or any other community in the past. Could he explain his views on the NZ First's Immigration Policies particularly on halving the new migrant numbers? Interesting his back ground as a foot soldier of the racist "sena" in Mumbai!!!
