Basu’s Seriousness for the Sovereignty
Posted by worldamity on February 5, 2010
Usually people ignore the mistakes encountered in books or media, however; depending upon the situation, importance of the matter and the market of the source, ignoring them could give unexpected negative results. Due to Indian activities and its strong media impact in the world, huge fraction of the world population are misinformed about the birth place of Gautam Buddha. During Kapilvastu Day programme, when Raho Joe Bornhost – residing in France and German – was helping the programme requesting his colleagues to participate in and help to this programme, he did mistake. (Click here to see the unknowingly done mistake). For the sovereignty of the country, our intellectuals must be careful in this sort of sensitive issue.
Immediate response to concerned authority by Basu Shrestha, the Editor of Khasskhass, is highly appreciable. This what he did:
Basu Shrestha: Back in 1994, when I was jsut arrived in US, I found a book in a library saying Buddha was born in India. In protest of it, I wrote a letter to them and they replied saying they will correct it. The letter is here. Similarly, if we see like this please write them and ask your freinds and family to write them as well so… that we can raise a voice. Getting just mad or just hating them is not a solutions.

The book was published by the writer of the letter. It was published in USA in which information about countries were collected for those American who wanted to go aboard for study.
Basu Shrestha’s letter to Zakaria:
Thank you for your other job that you are doing wonderfully. Hope to hear your response regarding the correction ASAP and maintain a good relation for ever.
