Does sanAtana dharma (hinduism) "approve" of LGBTQ

There is a concerted propaganda being driven to the effect that LGBTQ is somehow "approved" in sanaatana dharma. Given that the "evidence" given is extremely laughable and trivial, it is better that we deal with them in some sort of a Q&A.

A humble attempt -
Q1. Is LGBTQ approved in hinduism?
A - It is as approved as much any other human weakness / infarction / disease. The idea being any weakness should be overcome or prevented from spreading and making society weak.

Q2. Why do you think that way? LGBTQs are as normal as any other.
A - Any normal person wouldn't go up to another in the face and say "I am normal". If he does so, it immediately raises suspicion of he being abnormal. The problem with LGBTQ activism is exactly that. They first try to prove that they are "normal", then they try to make it the "norm". E.g. some organizations in Canada trying to brook 72 different categories LGBTQ and imposing on everyone that a pe…

Govinda - A not-so-innocent story doing the rounds and its analysis

There is a not-so-innocent story doing the rounds in social media. It is not-so-innocent because it seems to be driven by an agenda to delink a Samskṛta pada from its roots and attribute to it Telugu roots with also an intention to attribute longer history to Telugu than what is accepted today. Reproduced below is the story with an analysis following it.
Do you know the secret behind as to why Tirupati Balaji is called ‘GOVINDA’? There is a wonderful and very interesting story .... SWAMY…..GOVU ….INDA ………….!!!!! A lovely incident happened when Lord Vishnu came to Bhuloka in search of Mahalaxmi …..when he entered Bhuloka as usual, he got human qualities like thirst and hunger, this following incident is conversation between Lord Srinivasa and Sage Agastya Muni..… Lord Srinivasa once went to the hermitage of Sage Agastya and said "Munindra, I have come to Bhu Loka (Earth) on a particular mission and going to stay here till the end of the Kali Yuga.... I'm very fond of Cow milk…

दुष्टः सज्जनस्य गुणान् न गणयति

नो ताण्डवेन नयनामृतनिर्झरेण
केकारवेण न च कर्णरसायनेन ।
बर्हेण चापि सुरचापरुचा तवाय-
मोतुर्न तुष्यति शिखिन्वधमन्तरेण ॥
-- वल्लभदेवस्य सुभाषितावली ।


सत्स्वप्यनेकेषु गुणेषु यः खलः सः गुणवन्तं दूषयति / हन्तीति भावः ।

शिखिनस्ताण्डवममृतरसनिष्यन्दि । तस्य केकारवः श्रवणस्य कृते रसायनमिव । तस्य बर्हाः इन्द्रधनुरिवानेकैर्वर्णैः कर्बुरः सुन्दरश्च ।

सत्स्वप्येतेष्वनेकेषूत्तमगुणेषु तुष्टिस्थानेष्वोतुः (बिडालः / मार्जारः) शिखिनः वधं विना न तुष्यति ।

हे शिखिन्निति संबोधनम्। शिखिन्, न तवोत्तमगुणैः बिडालस्य कार्यम् । न तस्य पुरत एनान्गुणान्प्रदर्शयेति कवेराशयः ॥

The evil minded doesn't care about the multiplicity of good qualities in a good man. In this subhāṣita the Kavi advises a peacock thus -
O peacock, the cat isn't amused by your dance which is nectarine to the eyes, not by your sweet sound which is elixir to the ears, nor by your feathers as beautiful as the rainbow. The cat will not be amused by anything but your death.

The sense is that it is futile to display one's good qualitie…

ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಶಂಕರಮಠದಲ್ಲಿ ಶಿವಮಹಿಮ್ನಸ್ತೋತ್ರದ ಕುರಿತಾದ ಮಧುಸೂದನೀ ಟೀಕೆ ಅನುಸರಿಸಿ ಮಾಡಿದಂತಹ ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನ. ಟೀಕೆಯನ್ನು ಆದಷ್ಟು ಬಿಡದೆ, ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರಿಗೆ ಕಷ್ಟವೆನಿಸಬಹುದಾದ ಟೀಕಾಭಾಗಗಳನ್ನು ಮಾತ್ರ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನ ಮಾಡಲಾಯಿತು.
ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನ ಸರಣಿ ೧೧ ರಿಂದ ೧೬ ಡಿಸೆಂಬರ್ ೨೦೧೭  ವರೆಗೆ ನಡೆಯಿತು. ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ಶಿವಮಹಿಮ್ನಸ್ತೋತ್ರದ ೧ ರಿಂದ ೭ ಶ್ಲೋಕದ ಟೀಕೆಯ ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯಾನ ಮಾಡಲಾಯಿತು.
Part of a series of talks delivered in sha~Nkara maTha, Bangalore on shivamahimnaH stotra. An effort was made to stick to madhusUdana sarasvatii svaamii's Tiikaa as far as possible omitting certain details which would have been heavy for common public.

The series of talks took place between 11 and 16 December 2017 and covers shlokas 1 to 7.

The GST jumla, another massive fraud on the nation

GST is a massive scale fraud on India which will have extreme repercussions. People have taken in the government propaganda lock stock and barrel. They think that this is a great reform and will bring about everything from lower prices to reduction in income tax. Nothing could have been further than the truth.

Consider the following:

The book keeping requirements in GST are quite exacting. Therefore, all small and big businesses will have to hire services of small and big accountants. This will lead to higher administrative costs and hence inflation.

Many clauses introduced through back door by Jai Italy. The biggest and the most draconian clause against small businesses is this:
Those who will buy from an unregistered vendor will have to deposit 18% tax on the vendor's behalf. And this will not be adjustable / refundable.
This is the problem point. People will either:
1. Stop buying from unregistered vendors. Who will take on the small vendor's burden at the cost of competit…
