The one and only free public forum for Bohras. The focus of this forum is the reform movement, the Dawoodi Bohra faith and, of course, the corrupt priesthood. But the discussion is in no way restricted to the Bohras alone.

A small interesting philosophical note:<p> If Earth's population was shrunk into a village of<br> just 100 people, with all the human ratios existing<br> in the world still remaining, what would this tiny,<br> diverse village look like?<p> That's exactly what Phillip M. Harder, a medical<br> doctor at the Stanford University School of Medicine,<br> attempted to figure out. This is what he found.<p> 57 would be Asian<br> 21 would be European<br> 14 would be from the Western Hemisphere<br> 8 would be African<br> 52 would be female<br> 48 would be male<br> 70 would be non-white<br> 30 would be white<br> 70 would be non-Christian<br> 30 would be Christian<br> 89 would be heterosexual<br> 11 would be homosexual<br> 6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire<br> world's wealth, and all 6 would be from the<br> United States.<br> 80 would live in substandard housing<br> 70 would be unable to read<br> 50 would suffer from malnutrition<br> 1 would be near death<br> 1 would be pregnant<br> 1 would have a college education<br> 1 would own a computer<p> The following is an anonymous interpretation:<p> Think of it this way. If you live in a good home,<br> have plenty to eat and can read, you are a member<br> of a very select group.<p> And if you have a good house, food, can read and<br> have a computer, you are among the very elite.<p> If you woke up this morning with more health than<br> illness... you are more fortunate than the million<br> who will not survive this week.<p> If you have never experienced the danger of<br> battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony<br> of torture, or the pangs of starvation... you are<br> ahead of 500 million people in the world.<p> If you can attend a synagogue, church or mosque<br> meeting without fear of harassment, arrest,<br> torture, or death...you are fortunate, more than<br> three billion people in the world can't.<p> If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on<br> your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...<br> you are richer than 75% of this world.<p> If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and<br> spare change in a dish someplace...you are among<br> the top 8% of the world's wealthy.<p> If your parents are still alive and still married...<br> You are very rare, even in the United States.<p> If you hold up your head with a smile on your face<br> and are truly thankful ... you are blessed because<br> the majority can, but most do not.<p> If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even<br> touch them on shoulder ... you are blessed<br> because you can offer healing touch.<p> If you can read this message, you just received a<br> Double blessing in that someone was thinking of<br> you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than<br> over two billion people in the world that cannot<br> read at all.<p> Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass<br> this along to remind everyone else how blessed we<br> all are.<p><br>
