Ashid Bellum's official statement—being eagerly awaited by most nations in the world, nervous ninelian citizens, and ninelians loyal to the regime—finally rings out through radio to all nations in continental Eurasia. The statement is as follows:
“To all nations that will listen, this is the Chancellor of Aera Ninel, Ashid Bellum. I come bearing good news, as we come promising compromise. Seeing as the National Party for Ninelian Socialism is no longer a rebel group, and now controls the country, we will deem diplomatic relations with other nations a possibility. If any nations are open to relationships, we have a single demand. In 20 days a meeting will be held in Niatnuom Ninel, a completely demilitarized city following the firebombings that took place during the civil war. Any nations that refuse to attend this meeting will be indefinitely denounced by Aera Ninel and excluded from any diplomacy involving our nation. A document has been sent to every nation disclosing the rules of the meeting and inviting them to reserve a spot. To answer some questions I've received: Trade deals between nations will be sustained until the meeting, where we will discuss their future continuation; no, former chancellor Nikolai is not dead as far as we know; it's more likely that he is under the care of SAPRAN loyalists hiding out in a remote area of the country. Any other questions directed at Ashid Bellum will be answered in the meeting, but until then this is Chancellor Ashid signing off.” This message provides no relief to the large number of Ninelians still loyal to the All-People’s Party, but does reduce the immensely present fears of inevitable war between Aera Ninel and its neighboring countries. Along with these statements, another action taken by the government is the widespread online dispersal of “The Ashist proclamation,” which is a roughly 100-page manifesto written by Ashid Bellum detailing the Ashist ideology. In short, Ashism promotes the unification of Ninelians against toxic foreign influence, which has degraded the “mountain spirit” of the founders and created waves of “degenerate” leeches on Ninelian society. Ashism also follows the doctrine of anti-revisionist socialism, and they believe that Nikolai Deapson was using his economic reforms to drive Aera Ninel away from true socialism, and toward an ideology that they call “capitalism with Ninelian characteristics.” The manifesto doesn’t only call out to Ninelian citizens though, as it makes it clear that foreigners may be “christened in Ninelian radiance,” as they put it, by denouncing their culture and fighting for the success of Aera Ninel. The effects of this manifesto have yet to be seen, but it seems to be sparking both outrage and praise in Aera Ninel; there are also small groups of people in neighboring countries that have been influenced by the manifesto, but their numbers are, at the moment, very small. The manifesto, in the first 10 hours of dispersal, has been downloaded at least 1,500,000 times in Aera Ninel, and it seems that its spread to other countries will be disastrously contagious.
The document that is sent to every national leader is as follows:

It's actually very important for most RP going forward, and the way this arc ends depends entirely on the actions of other nations, so if I were you I'd pay attention. I could make a doc containing all of the RMB posts related to the arc and share it with the region if you guys want.

Anime Fans Disappointed By Polls

Written by Hindu Mahasabha

Recently the region held poll to decide whether region of India should have the Anime tag or not. The Anime Fans were defeated by 11-15 in the poll. Many people like Vajji and Rihaam have expressed their despondency over the issue. Rihaam said, "Also, I'll oppose this non-inclusion of anime tag constitutionally." Hindu Ram Rajya lead the polls by requesting people to vote against the proposal. Once the poll was won, the people were thanked. Hindu Mahasabha said that it is good that so many people voted in favour, maybe next time the Anime Fans will win the polls to have the Anime tag on the region.

Decoding the Vedas
Part II: What is a mantra, is there a god, what is hell, and what is heaven, the key to boundless knowledge, why say ‘Bharatam’

Written by Whole India

Introduction: When we say a mantra, what is it? If you ask this question to a fool, then he will say it is for praising the god/s, but essentially who is god? By praising the god will we go to heaven? Will others who don’t go to hell? How can one gain this knowledge? These few questions arrive at every conscious mind, but their surrounding can’t provide an answer because it isn’t seeking to know.

What is a mantra: See the very basics of a mantra is Sound. Whatever you say have reverberations on your body, mind, intellect. Chanting a mantra wrongly can do terrible things, but chanting it correctly can enhance your ability. Like the Stock Market, do the right investment for profit, but this is the easiest stock market. Even if you don’t know the meaning, of the mantra just recite it, chant it. Modern Science has given substantial evidence that if an individual chants the Gayatri Mantra in a wrong manner for 3 to 5 months then he may lose his voice even if all parts of his throat are intact and normal. That’s the power of sound! Mantras as made in such a way that the sound produced from them benefits our body. The word ‘Aum’ is immensely powerful, nowadays people make it ‘Om’ which is not going to help their system. Chanting mantras can greatly enhance our ability, and we can live a full-fledged life. Adding British or American asset while chanting mantra will ruin you because you are adding excess spice to already cooked food! People think that this ‘Aum’ is only in religion, we will also get the religion thing cleared, but before it is not so that only ‘Hindus’ who brand ‘Aum’, it is everywhere, just is that we lack observation. Christianity came from Jerusalem, and there is used to Aramaic language, and so if you may observe, they say “Aaamen”, remove the “en” and we get the sound of “Aum”. In Vatican City, they say as “Aaaaamen” removing “en” we get the sound of “Aum”. Even in Islam, they say, “Ameen”. Take out “een” and we again get the sound of “Aum”. Hence, this science was and is in every culture, but as time passed the word’s distortion happened like today in the US they made “Amen” as “A-men”, in India, “Aum” became “Om”. This can be better understood if I was speaking to you, but anyways. For those people who have bad dreams, nightmares, can’t give attention to a thing or have problems that are difficult to solve, the pronunciation of “Aum” will be transformational, just a few minutes every day can change your life.

Why say Bharatam, and not India or Hindustan: The Rules of sound even follow here. Bharat comes from bha – ra – ta. Bhava means sensation. Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching are different types of sensations. Your whole experience of life is sensory right now. Or in other words, sensations are the basis of your experience. Bha means sensation, out of which emotion arises. Ra means raga or the tune. The tune is not yours – existence has already set it. Now you have to find the rhythm, which is the tala. If you find the right rhythm, you are a fantastic human being. If you miss the rhythm, you get crushed by the process of life.
We called this nation Bha-ra-ta, and one of the great kings of the past was Bharata. People say the country is named after him, but actually, he was named after the country. There are so many Bharats and Bharatis in this country – they are named after this nation. King Bharata had nine sons, but when the time to hand over the empire came, he gave it to Bhumanyu, who was the son of the sage Bharadwaj. This boy grew up in the forest. When he came to the court one day, the king looked at him and said, “This boy must become the king – not my sons.” People were shocked because the emperor’s sons, nine of them, were waiting in a queue – probably fighting with each other over who would become the king. People argued, “Who is he? He has grown up in the forest.” Bharata said, “I see an enormous intelligence in his eyes and a raging fire in his heart. He is able-bodied and stable. He should be the king.” This was the first demonstration of democracy in this nation, thousands of years ago. A nation is important because you expand the scope of your passion, involvement, and concern beyond your likes and dislikes. “Why can’t we think about the whole world?” That would be great to have the entire world united, but anyways. A nation is the largest piece of humanity that you can be committed to right now. When you are committed to this nation and its wellbeing, if not to 7.2 billion people, at least you are committed to 1.2 billion people, which is a great step forward from being committed to your wellbeing. Whenever somebody occupies a nation, the first thing they will do is change your name. This is the technology of dominance; this is the technology of enslaving. If you look at African–American history, when the African people were brought to America, the first thing they did was took their African name away and gave them some silly name. That is what has been done to us – Thiruvananthapuram is “Trivandrum.” Chennai is “Madras.” Like this – “India.” What does it mean? It does not mean anything. If I give you a meaningless name, you will become a meaningless, stupid person in front of me because I have a meaningful name. I have a tradition, I have a culture – you have nothing. So in that context, we have become “India.” When we found it, the British said, “Oh! No no, your name is from Greek and Latin which means Indus Valley Civilization.” They just talked about this and that for the sake of convincing us. The concept of a nation must sink into everybody’s mind because a nation is just an idea. When this idea burns through your mind and sinks into your heart, and your passion rises, you have a real nation. Otherwise, “nation” is just on paper. This is the unfortunate reality for us right now. When the British left in 1947, the first thing we should have done is change the name in such a way that it resonates in everybody’s mind. You are using an English name for an Indian nation. Hardly a few per cent of us, Indians can speak English properly in this country. The remaining are essentially left out. I know a whole lot of the intellectual crowd will say, “What is in a name?” When you utter your name, you must understand there is sound. The meaning is only psychological and social. The sound is existential and has power. “Bharat” has power. This power has to reverberate through everybody’s hearts in this country. And the idea of what it means to be an Indian must get across to every human being because if everyone’s aspiration is not the same as the national aspiration, then you don’t have a nation. You can yourself test it, by saying one whole day, “India India India” and one whole day “Bharatam Bharatam Bharatam” then you will see the difference.

Who is god, and what is hell, what is heaven: This is the best part of the story. People of various religions have their own gods, India essentially is a godless culture. When I say, “godless” then many will say about ‘Devas’, ‘Pujas’, ‘Temples’, ‘Idol worship’, etc. So, just read this whole thing. There is a vast difference between ‘gods’ and ‘devas’. Firstly, the word ‘pray’ and ‘worship’ are different. ‘Pray’ means you are becoming the god’s chief consultant while ‘worship’ means you are respecting someone, his/her work. God comes in a belief system, in this culture, there is no belief system. This is a godless culture, there is a whole science behind temples, it isn’t a religious place, because God is a heretic person in this culture there is no heretic person in this culture. The westerners made the term ‘Hindu’ as ‘Hindusim’. They screw up on the word ‘33 Koti Devas’, Koti is a Sanskrit word that has 8 meanings! The poor translator used one meaning which meant 10 million, but the Koti here meant ‘excellent. It means 33 excellent forms of creation! If I tell you today to unscrew 10 screws from a vent without any tools, then you will use your nails, teeth, and end up breaking your nails, and then one day if I give you a screwdriver, you will just know its value, you will worship it. The same is the case here, saints like Sai Baba are worshipped in this culture because of their contribution to our daily life. Like many Marxists worship Karl Marx and Fredrich Angels, many Maoists worship Mao Zedong, and many Nazis worship Adolf Hitler, the same is the case here that’s why we call these people in this culture as ‘Devas’. It is just that Mao and Hitler killed people while others worked to make life better. Marx expected that his socialist theory would be adopted by rich nations, but anyways he also tried something to make life better. The term Hindu came from the Himalayas and Hind Mahasagara which is the Indian ocean. In one Indian family the members worship 3 to 8 different Devas, someone doesn’t worship, someone only does work, someone will only medicate, someone will do crazy things. but still, they are Hindus because it is a geographical identity and not a religion! Few semi-intellectuals and a few pseudo-intellectuals have made the word ‘dharma’ meaning ‘religion’, these western translators have always screwed up, they did it with Koti, they did it with Deva, now they even took Dharma in their list. Dharma means what you should do, and even if you don’t do it, it’s okay. It tells us when we should wake up, what we should do after we wake up, there is a whole science behind it. We can reduce our sleep quota to 3 to 4 hours and live a full-fledged life! If you wish to have a simplistic life, no problem, enjoy.

Temples are the meditation centres in this culture. There is a science in how to consecrate the idols, but nowadays it’s just lost, it is there but after the Bhakti movement, you just take any rock make an idol and worship it, it won’t work though you will have positivity which will help, however, positivity with a consecrated idol is the formula needed for a full-fledged life. Now what is hell, and what is heaven? Can someone forcefully make you suffer? No, it is the reaction that makes you suffer. Tomorrow if I come, and bow down to you and abuse you in a language you don’t know, which won’t, but you will feel that I just asked for your blessings, or I am a nutcase who thinks you are great. But if someone abuses you in the language you know then you will give a negative reaction, isn’t it? So, suffering can’t be forced. Today you have a discriminatory mind who knows when to have joy and when to have sorrow after you die your brain is no more there so we go by our tendencies. The tendencies reach their extreme ends, if you are a negative person by tendency then your negativity will multiply a million folds after your death, and the opposite of same shall happen when you have a positive tendency. Both will reach their extreme ends, and this is what is called Heaven and Hell. So, in this culture, we tell to be joyful for the most time. If you die consciously then there is more in which I won’t go right now. Things like Mahasamadhi, you know?

The Key to Boundless knowledge: As stated in the last part, Knowledge is limited and ignorance is boundless. If you want boundless knowledge then leave your negativity, just leave your beliefs, logic, and just work on what you wish to know. One must rise above this the Left vs the Right, and there should be the realization that we are human first. Instead of presuming something, accept that you don't know by saying to yourself "I don't know" because that "I don't know" is having great potential! To be something, you need to accept something. Few say, "We have pleasure in remaining ignorant." But our human system is of so much potential that we can make every impossible thing possible. Hence, another basic thing is that it is not our job to decide a possibility, it is nature's job to decide a possibility. We have to just concentrate our energies to make everything possible.

RNABL Update:
Sorry for the late update but we have some good news on the RNABL front, the season continued even without reports on it. Here are the standings as they are standing currently, a reminder, the top four make the playoffs and there are only two weeks left:

1. Oxilmore Bruisers (9-3)(+16): Following a disappointing season last year, the Bruisers started off with a 6 game winning streak and have not slowed down much since coming to a 9-3 record late in the season. At this point, last year's butt of the joke is this year's favorite to win the whole thing.

2. Jefferson DC Capitalists (8-4)(+8): A new team this season, the Capitalists are making a splash throughout the league as they post the second best record in the league. The team is excited to make their first postseason journey in what we hope is their long tenure.

3. Los Veganos Viboras (6-6)(+5): Last year's winner has posted a not so impressive 6-6 record but has made up for it with some spectacular games this season. They currently sit in third place and are in good position for the final stretch of the season.

4. Port Ducato Duccaneers (6-6)(-7): Another new team this season, the Duccaneers took awhile to get moving in the league among the more settled teams. They have turned this around by rising to 6-6 and taking the fourth spot overall with some close wins later in the season. They hope to keep this position and hold a spot in the postseason.

5. Fordland Founders (5-7)(0): Last year's regular season winners have proven themselves to be less adept at adjusting to the new format as they would like you to think. As the home of Animal Ball as a sport, Great Patrick currently sees a team on the outside of the post-season projections to be a bit of an embarrassment. They hope to turn this around as they move through the last two games but only time will tell.

6. Oxes Republic Beasts of Burden (5-7)(-6): The Beasts of Burden were a solid team last year although they did not have many success stories last year. It seemed that this year would be the same as they started off with an abysmal record, but they have turned that around in recent games and it seems as though they could be within striking distance of a playoff spot.

7. Fredmenton Oilers (5-7)(-12): Hanging just on the edge of playoff contention last season and having an almost Cinderella story through the king-of-the-hill bracket, the Oilers look like they man not get the chance again. The final games can shake things up though and the final two games make make the race to the finish more exciting than we expect.

8. Valadores Vipers (4-8)(-4): South Airlandia's expansion team has had many troubles getting off the ground this season and are almost ready to throw in the towel and call the season a loss. They even split with the rival team in the Founders winning one game and losing another against the team. Not much can be said of the season unless they get a statement win in the final two games.

Now that we see where each team stands, we look forward to the down to the wire finish of the season and we will see you tomorrow when week 13 brings us one step closer to the end of the season.
