These days I am totally absorbed by Abrahamic religions, twelve tribes, promised land and the "story" of genesis. Been reading stuff about it. and stumbled upon this link: http://adaniel.tripod.com/beneisrael.htm
Never ever on this earth I had imagined, there will be something like this. Marathi speaking Jews!! आणि ते पण रोहा, पेण आणि पाली मध्ये???

especially the last two photos in that link, just looks like one of the houses in Konkan (oh it breaks my heart to think about Konkan). parked Old Maruti 800, coconut trees, veranda, fence wall covered with green fungi.. 

today I had a conversation with the old house owner in the afternoon. It is this warm caring lady's house in Munich where I am living. We talked about evolution, universe, physics and eternal questions to religion, faith, supernatural entities and eternal answers!  

at the end there was only one thing she asked
"what difference it is going to make in your life if you know whether the GOD exists or not?"

  1. Dude Bene Israelis are very common in Mumbai. Most of them have their surnames ending is 'kar'. They speak in Marathi at home and can easily pass off as Maharashtrians, but they are Jews and they attend the synagogue on the sabbath.
