This Disclaimer may change from time to time without notice, and yet will always be applicable. Please check always before using anything on Shiva Shakthi.
Please note that this Disclaimer is valid for this site and all social media activities of or on behalf of Shiva Shakthi. Hence, the usage of site, ShivaShakthi.org or Shiva Shakthi includes this website, facebook page, youtube page, twitter page and any other page owned or managed or inspired by Shiva Shakthi. It also includes activities on whatsapp, quora, linkedin, youtube, google, and other social platforms that exist or may come up in future.
If you do not like anything on site, please know that this site is for entertainment purpose only. We are not responsible for any damage that happens to you if you believe or refuse to believe what we say in the site. We are also not responsible for any emotional trauma you face because of this site. We are also not sure whether that trauma is good for you or bad for you. You are responsible for whatever you do. Don’t blame us nor try to restrict our freedom of expression in any way.
This is not a site for everyone. It is a very niche site exclusively for a very specific audience who respect Shiva Shakthi ideology. Not everyone is welcome here. Just as we will not get in your home to dictate your lifestyle or choice of decor, we don’t encourage trolls to come on Shiva Shakthi and comment on what we do on our site.
We are forced to add this in Disclaimer because we are receiving a vast number of hate messages, threats, trolls on a regular basis that shows a strong correlation with the rise of ISIS.
To help you not become a troll unknowingly, we have made the Disclaimer directly available above all posts. We are within our rights to clean our home (aka our site) in whatever way we want to. And since it is our home, we have full freedom to decide who is a troll, what comments to keep, what to reply, what to say and do whatever we want to with any content that comes to our site.
Still Longer version:
This site and its content are for an extremely mature reader keen to understanding various points of views to arrive at truth. The objective is not to hurt any sentiments or be biased in favor of or against any particular person, society, gender, creed, nation or religion. Kindly do not browse through the articles if you believe that certain kinds of content may be offensive to you. Viewing any content of the site is a conscious choice of the visitor. We recommend that unless you are completely convinced, it is preferable that you do not read anything on this site. Simply close the browser window immediately and enjoy rest of the innumerable web-pages on internet. Don’t tell us later that we did not warn you.
Reading this site may cause permanent changes in your thought process and ideology. It may force you to rethink your entire belief system and bring fundamental changes in your personality. Not everyone is ready for such massive transformation and hence we recommend that one better avoid the site. At the least, we compel you to read this entire Disclaimer carefully in totality. Do not read a single word on site if you do not understand the Disclaimer completely. The Disclaimer has been deliberately made cryptic and confusing to dissuade you from reading anything on the site.
However, if you read anything on this site despite our explicit warning and attempts to discourage you, you are doing it completely on your own risk and cannot blame or hold ShivaShakthi.org or any of its associates liable for any damages – psychological, emotional, physical, social or in any other form that may emerge.
The authors exercise their artistic right to portray social reality as well as fiction with utmost creativity in all possible forms. Some of that portrayal may take the form of questioning values and morals that are prevalent in the society. We exercise our right to freedom to use harsh words, ridicules and other forms of expressions to put across our point.
However it must be kept in mind that all our expressions be considered figurative and within the ambit of law of land, as is the case with all films and books released in the country without facing legal bans. If you find some content to be against law of the land, it is because you have taken figurative expression literally. You must re-interpret the content keeping in mind that Shiva Shakthi, under no circumstance, endorses going against law – directly or indirectly. For example,
- if you read on site, “break the law” – it does not mean violate the penal codes. It probably means “break the self-imposed assumptions of your mind that limit your growth”.
- if you read on site, “kill the criminal” – it does not mean killing any human. It probably means “kill the urge to go against natural and legal laws.”
- if you read on site, “destroy the rapist”, it does not mean lynching a convict. It probably means “destroy the urge to insult women” or “country should punish the rapist as per prevailing laws and all citizens must support the process.”
- at times, such content may be purely fiction or way of expression, not intended to be taken literally. Like scenes of violence in Bollywood films that are passed by Censor Board. You even have scenes that show killing or politicians, ministers, bomb blasts, insulting Gods and what not. Consider our content to be our film. Learn if you can from it, do not misinterpret. Or entertain yourself. If you do not like, do not read.
Some more information:
The site and its content are based on collective views of several intellectuals of past and present, and does not necessarily mean that authors or administrators or owners of the site agree to all the content in part or complete. Remedies or health solutions provided must be followed only after approval from a competent physician. We do not intend to replace established medical practices.
The purpose of the site is to promote peace, non-violence, tolerance, friendship, unity, prosperity, happiness and integrity in an honest yet creative manner. All content in the site should be evaluated from this perspective alone. All words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, and posts are figurative expressions for these ideals alone and are not to be taken literally.
May the truth prevail!
Please also note that there is NO other official site of Shiva Shakthi on internet. While we may use content from other sites and pages, and many of them endorse Shiva Shakthi, they are separate from Shiva Shakthi. We may not agree completely with their ideology, approach or direction.
Also note that the comments on this site are rarely moderated manually to respect freedom of speech in public domain. Comments have been enabled on the site to support free exchange of ideas and thoughts. However the comments of various visitors DO NOT imply that Shiva Shakthi site admins are endorsing those comments. The ONLY comments from Shiva Shakthi are those which have the Shiva Shakthi Icon (Trishool/Trident) and ShivaShakthi.org written next to it. The rest of the comments are views of respective visitors and have nothing to do with Shiva Shakthi Admin. Kindly do not consider them to be views of Shiva Shakthi.

We do not support piracy. We make best endeavor to not allow plagiarism or use pirated content.

Shiva Shakthi content is maintained, managed, edited, moderated by a team of volunteers. The volunteers keep changing from time to time and we do not keep track of them at any point in time. It is impossible for us to monitor any content because:
- it is not humanly possible for us
- we believe in self-censorship
- we trust humanity in general and consider each individual to be responsible for their acts
- a vast number of volunteers work under pseudonyms and we do not even know their real identity. We are not even interested in their real identities because our focus is on principles mentioned earlier and not individuals.
It is likely that some content may be posted by some volunteer on one of the many platforms that is against law of land or infringement of copyright. We are not responsible for that in any manner. We are also not in a position to identify the individual(s) responsible for it. Shiva Shakthi has nothing to do with such content even if it claims to be posted on behalf of Shiva Shakthi, or by Shiva Shakthi, or on Shiva Shakthi platforms.
However, Shiva Shakthi is proactively against piracy and respects law of the land. If you come across such content on www.ShivaShakthi.org, please contact us through Contact page on site with comprehensive and conclusive proofs of violation. We will remove the same from www.ShivaShakthi.org website or the platform that we control.
Please note that most platforms are not controlled or managed by us. They are managed by volunteers, supporters and fans, and we do not have any access to them. We will however request the administrators of concerned platform on which offending content was posted to remove the content. It will be impossible for us to showcase proof of our communication with them. Or guarantee that the content will be removed. What you must do is to directly contact the administrators of such platforms and coordinate with them. Shiva Shakthi is no way responsible or involved or liable to be involved in this process. Nor is Shiva Shakthi liable for any damages whatsoever out of such content.
We do not support anything that is against law of the land.

We know you would have not read or understood the entire Disclaimer. We did not either. It is so cryptic! A lot of portion was created from open-source samples available, but the real cryptic part was created by us. But still everything applies. Hence, if you proceed to read any further, you are doing so totally at your own risk. And agree that ShivaShakthi.org is no way liable for anything that happens to you or others because of you. You also agree that if you still troll, abuse, criticize, question, threaten, challenge Shiva Shakthi, then you are someone who is spineless moron, hostile …think of all the worst abuses and expletives you know or your friends know of.
Once more, we strongly appeal to close this site and have fun elsewhere on internet. We have written all this to prevent ourselves from any liabilities. And entertainment purpose only.
In wake of moral policing and obstruction to free speech by social media and pigerals, Shiva Shakthi has decided to support the suppressed voices. We proactively provide technical support like hosting, domain registration, site maintenance etc to such people so that they can freely express themselves on internet. This support may be free or paid in variety of innovative ways. We may have a variety of give and take relationships. But that does not mean we are party with them. We also provide moral, emotional, and all other possible support to free speech without trying to influence or moral police them.
If you disagree with them, deal with them directly. Shiva Shakthi does not believe in interfering in free speech like Facebook or Google decision-makers. We will no way try to influence them. If you feel they are doing something illegal, do whatever is most suitable as per law. We will stop providing them service if directed by Court. Under any circumstances, we are not liable for any damage whatsoever from their activities as mentioned in this disclaimer or any other keep-safe disclaimer for world. Our liability is only to extent that twitter is liable for an anonymous tweet from ISIS, or google for so many objectionable sites that come in its search results, or facebook for posts that people have to later report. If court asks us specifically, we will follow their directions. But in no way will we try to impose our own moral standards on them or influence them in any way.
