Can’t buy the Celestron C65

Remember this telescope I wished to buy costing a mere $55? I finally found an Indian dealer who quotes it at Rs.9015 (inclusive of air freight from the US to India, insurance, landing charges, ground handling in US & India, Customs Duty etc). I can’t blame the dealer for the sharp hike.

I would have bought the C65 Mini Mak at this price had I been crazy enough to take up astronomy in India!

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
