#Thread "Mayong" The Land of Black Magic and Mysterious kingdom of Ghatotkach...

Mayong is located in Morigaon district about 40 km from the city of Guwahati, Assam.The word 'mayong' is originated from the Sanskrit word 'Maya which signifies illusion.
Mayong is known as the 'Land of Black Magic'. It is also speculated that black magic started in the whole world from this village. The people here believe that this village belongs to Ghatotkach, son of Bheem. Ghatotkach was the king of Mayong.
The people here are masters at creating illusions. It is said that the people of Mayong know the magic of disappearing. The people here also have the power to transform themselves into animals and here wild animals are domesticated with supernatural power.
People here eliminate pain with mantras, snap thieves, and also perform many types of magic. Most of the people of Mayong are farmers, but along with farming, they also teach magic to their children.
In 1332 AD, the Mughal emperor Mohammad Shah marched with his horsemen to capture Assam. Thousands of magicians were present in Assam at that time and they had built such a magical wall to save Mayong, after crossing which Shah's entire army disappeared.

I just finished Eric Adler's The Battle of the Classics, and wanted to say something about Joel Christiansen's review linked below. I am not sure what motivates the review (I speculate a bit below), but it gives a very misleading impression of the book. 1/x


The meat of the criticism is that the history Adler gives is insufficiently critical. Adler describes a few figures who had a great influence on how the modern US university was formed. It's certainly critical: it focuses on the social Darwinism of these figures. 2/x

Other insinuations and suggestions in the review seem wildly off the mark, distorted, or inappropriate-- for example, that the book is clickbaity (it is scholarly) or conservative (hardly) or connected to the events at the Capitol (give me a break). 3/x

The core question: in what sense is classics inherently racist? Classics is old. On Adler's account, it begins in ancient Rome and is revived in the Renaissance. Slavery (Christiansen's primary concern) is also very old. Let's say classics is an education for slaveowners. 4/x

It's worth remembering that literacy itself is elite throughout most of this history. Literacy is, then, also the education of slaveowners. We can honor oral and musical traditions without denying that literacy is, generally, good. 5/x
