datta bavani

  • simple google search throw the answer that it is written by Ranga Avadhuta Maharaj. 14gaam.com/dutt-bavani-lyrics-and-meaning-gujarati-english.htm Of course if we need a "proof" from scripture for this then I am not sure. Jan 23, 2016 at 4:07
  • @AADTechnical Of course you don't need proof from scripture for something like this. Scriptural proof is only necessary for subjects that are discussed in Hindu scripture, not who the author of a 20th-century Gujarati song is. Jan 23, 2016 at 4:46
  • what is "proof" that the link is authentic? how to prove that the link is correct or wrong... since that link is not from "authentic" scriptures. sometimes Absence of proof is not proof of absence, Hence I am not posting it as Answer! Jan 23, 2016 at 5:15
  • @AADTechnical If you're concerned about whether that information is correct, you may want to double-check it before posting it. I'm just saying that from the perspective of the site's rules, that link is a good enough source. Jan 23, 2016 at 5:37
  • what is mean by double checking? shall i contact Internet authority to validate the site? Is this what we do for every link that is ever posted in the question/answer? Are there any white-listed site for which we do not need "double" checking? If so, who decided this white-listed site? what was the criteria? where should i find such list? so all the ref. should only come from this white listed sites ONLY? TOUGH!! Jan 23, 2016 at 5:59
