Indianize Education

indianize education

As a lover of Indian culture and spirtuality, I am sometimes appalled at how westernized education is in India. I can only hope that a future Human Ressources Minister will take-up the job to « Indianise, nationalise and spiritualise » education in India. Of course, he or she will be criticized by the secular media and intellectuals who will call it « a hidden Hindu agenda ». So What ?

With 800 millions souls, Hindus constitute the majority of this country. Why should Hindus then be ashamed of a « Hindu » education ? Traditionally and historically, Hinduism has always been the most tolerant of all religions, allowing persecuted minorities from all over the world, whether the Jerusalem Jews, the Parsis from Persia, Christians from Syria, or even Arab merchants, to settle in India over the centuries and practice their religion in peace. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of India's invaders, be it the Muslims, who ruthlessly tried for ten centuries to stamp out this most peaceful of all religions; or the Christians missionaries, who used every means at their disposal to convert Hindus to the « true » religion (and are still trying today).

But Hinduism, never tried to convert anybody, never sent its armies or missionaries to neighbouring countries,

Delhi Government Not A Political Problem

 Delhi Government is Not a Political Problem

Arvind Kejriwal is an ‘anarchist’. He was prepared for this role by powers that have perfected the art of influencing the politics of a target country by using the vectors of corruption, RTI, environment and activism.

The link between Kejriwal’s Kabir Foundation/Sampoorna Parivartan and the $80,000 that he received in the year 2002 to start his project. What makes this funding to Kejriwal a criminal activity is the fact that he in 2002 was still a government servant and therefore not entitled to receive it. Government servants are not permitted to float NGOs without due permission. The amount of $80,000 was equivalent to Kejriwal’s 20-year salary at that point of time. He therefore not only indulged in corruption but was also disloyal to his service and nation. It is the same Kejriwal who accuses other bureaucrats of being corrupt.

This Chief Minister has no respect for social and national institutions. His humility is tailored only for vote-banks. Otherwise he does not hesitate to sully the police and the bureaucrats, who too are associated with law and order and governance, irrespective of their chain of command. In case of any crime,

Decolonising The Indian Mind

Decolonising The Indian Mind

Foreign rulers redefined India’s economic, social and political landscape. As a result several misconceptions arose about the followers of Dharma for e.g. they are continuously criticized for the Dowry system and treatment of their women. But did you that –

  1. Dowry system is a result of socio-economic changes brought about by the British in undivided Punjab .
  2. In 1661 the islands of Bombay were given in dowry to King Charles II of England when he married Catherine de Braganza of Portugal.
  3. It was only in 1920 that women in the U.S. earned right to vote & contest.

However, women of India were accorded higher status long before. Some examples. The famous dialogue between Yajnavalkya and his wife Maitreyi and Gargi Vachaknavi show how enlightened (spiritual knowledge) the women intellectuals of that age were. In the recent past warriors like Rani of Jhansi & administrators like Ahilyabai Holkar (ruled over Indore from 1766 to 1795) have done womankind proud.

Bollywood As A Mix Of Junk Food And Islamism

 BBollywood as a mix of junk food and Islamism

Bollywood today has hijacked the identity of Indian cinema to such an extent that people hardly realize that there is more to Indian cinema. 

We eat junk food with the full knowledge that it is, well, junk. We crave it, gorge on it, all in the name of taste and don’t care how much of a land whale and waste dump it makes out of us. We justify it even in the name of having “fun.”

Junk food has its equivalent in the Indian entertainment scenario in the form of the Mumbai film industry, better known by its cheap, plagiarized moniker of Bollywood. For more than six decades now, it has done the same thing to the brains of the Indian people what junk food does to the bodies of people worldwide.

What can one say about the creativity of an entertainment entity whose name itself is an imitation? 

A surfing tour of various entertainment television channels will reveal that more than half of the ginormous number of channels typically air the abhorrent visage of a Bollywood personality. What is shown does not matter. It might be an interview of a 40 something actor (?) who still enjoys playing the roles half his age, or an actress (?)

Don’t Miss The Corruption In Our Everyday Life

Dont Miss The Corruption In Our Everyday Life

Indians are great people. Corruption was inflicted upon them by terror, but it is a disease that they can get rid of, provided they elect the right people.

Corruption is not only the 2G scam that percolates into everyday Indian life.

Cricket is an area where rottenness has set in. Eleven spoilt brats hog the limelight… and lose three out of five times. The recent IPL auction was a shameful affair televised nationally: players being sold off as if they were pieces of meat - and most not finding buyers, while a few were bought for absurd prices.

Cricket is also the destroyer of other sports. It monopolises the media and advertisement attention and, as result, India, an upcoming superpower, is ranked 145th in football, 232nd in basketball and is nowhere in the world. Compare this to China which, in less than 30 years, has come to dominate world sports.

Take ads. In the West, sportspersons usually advertise for sports goods. Here, Dhoni, a hero to millions of youths, will not only endorse Coca-Cola, which is harmful to health, but even whisky (under the guise of soda). Is that not a form of corruption?

Yoga Has A Religion And It Is Hinduism – Atanu Dey

yoga has a religion
“Yoga is a technique that was developed in India centuries ago, and belongs to Hinduism … in the sense that those who created it self-identified as Hindus … and [it] is preserved in the sacred scriptures of what is known as Hinduism. All of yoga’s ancient practitioners have been Hindus and only in modern times, have non-Hindus started using the technique. Practicing yoga does not make one a Hindu. But merely because non-Hindus or non-Indians can (and do) practice yoga does not alter the fact that yoga is a Hindu tradition.” – Dr Atanu Dey

My immediate response to the assertion that “Yoga has no religion” is a flat denial. Because I know Yoga, Yoga is a friend of mine and I can truthfully attest to the fact that Yoga does indeed have a religion. He’s a Hindu. Therefore anyone making the claim that Yoga has no religion is either ignorant or is a liar (maybe both) since it is categorically and emphatically false. Do I make myself clear?

Oh, they mean the practice of yoga, the set of physical and mental exercises that originated in India and is widely used across the world for improving physical and spiritual well-being? Well, well, then let me address that “Yoga has no religion” claim. Spoiler alert: it is a stupid, meaningless statement made by the congenitally ignorant demonstrating a mentally disabling but well-deserved inferiority complex.

Fundamental Error In The Thinking Of Pt Nehru - Deendayal Upadhyaya

fundamental error in the

The Merger of Nagar Haveli and Dadra into the Indian union is a move in the right direction. That the Government of India should have taken seven long years to make this simple decision only shows that mental state of indecisiveness of the rulers. What Sardar Patel could do within days in the case of Janagadh, Pandit Nehru has taken years to accomplish. Besides the inordinate delay, there is a basic difference towards the issue of liberating, and integrating, areas laying outside the pale of considered it the Government’s duty to actively work for their freedom and merger and he was his armoury to achieve his objective. Pandit Nehru it seems is not prepared to shoulder this responsibility.

Neither is he prepared to go to the lengths to which Sardar Patel went in the case of Hyderabad.

Apart from temperamental weaknesses and hesitancy, there is a fundamental error in the thinking of the Prime Minister. He thinks within the frame-work of the Government of India Act of 1935 or the India Independence Act of 1946. The Sovereignty of India accordingly is limited to the territories handed over to her by the Britisher and/or to States that join the dominion. In all other cases the people of the different areas are to be the architects of their fate and their future. If they desire to be independent, they must struggle.
