Times of India insults Hinduism

There was an article in Times of India stating that incest is rampant in Haryana and predominantly the Hindu community is involved in it. They have even quoted some examples from Mahabharatha and Rig Veda that incest was traditional in Hindu culture. Here is the link.  The tenor of the article was of that only Haryana is infested with incest and some comments from some 'cultured' people say that North Indian men are sex maniacs. 

I seriously doubt the credentials of those 'cultured' commentators. Any perversion would take place and grow only when the mind is left idle to fend with any kind of thought. No community fosters perversion, nor they encourage such ideas. Stray incidents are given a boost and a bad picture is pasted about the Hindu community.
Careful checks through the net by Hindu people revealed that parts of article were just a carbon copy of a Pakistani forum ( The 'author' of this article

Inducing to Education or sustaining vote bank?

It is appalling that the Government of TamilNadu in its zeal to woo the so-called minority community has chosen to alienate the poor of the Hindu community. Irrespective of their economic status the students of Government and Government recognized schools and colleges are handed out money for paying tuition fees and covering expenses for their books and other stationery. This is not done by any missionaries nor by any jehadi outfits, but by the "Secular" Government of TamilNadu. It is in toeing line with the PM of India announcing that only moslems have the first right on the nation's resources, citing Sachar, Mishra and other committee reports.

The Center has nodded for some "exclusively for minority" concessions and the State Government has without any formal announcement started doing the above said service to the minorities. The Government has no Constitutional justification for this as it violates most of the fundamental rights given by the Constitution, The right to Education, The Right to Equality and The right to freedom from exploitation. The students of the majority community are denied their right to be equally treated with any other citizen as they are discriminated. Their right to have a fair and decent education is being questioned on the economic status of their parents, as some of the students are given subsidy by the Government whereas it is the duty of the Government to ensure every citizen gets a fair and decent education. The right to freedom from exploitation of the majority community is violated as they are being sidestepped, subjected to bigotry by this chauvinistic act of the Government of TamilNadu.

The school children of the majority community are being mocked by the student of the so-called minority community that only those worship their God would get money. This is another means of inducing religious conversion, but this could also be categorized as subtle imposing of other religion on Hindus, which puts under constant threat their right to freedom of religion. The atheists in Government of TN have no respect for nature, culture and people. They have reduced Chennai from a beautiful city to a crowded ugly settlement but made money from the encroachments made. How can we expect these money minded politicians to ensure equality among citizens? They need power to make money and they do what it takes to get to power.

MK and his atheists followers (who would go to temple with families and then criticize the same God they worshiped) would not do justice unless the majority unite as a vote bank. They would do all the possible tricks and gimmicks to get the people's attention away from such discriminatory and dangerous practices, but the Hindus shall wake up to the reality.  Come on folks. Arise..... be awake and stop not until the atrocities against us are stopped.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh: Sri Guru Pooja - Chennai - 1st August

I've attended the RSS Guru Pooja after a long while. Nearly a decade. My dad was elated when I told him that I was going to attend the Guru pooja this time. He told me to keep in close touch with the organization. He was a regular reader of Organiser, and was friends with many Swayamsevaks, but could not be part of the organization, due to Government restrictions. After frequent location changes in the early 2000s, we lost touch with the organization.

I first off apologize to the fraternity for reaching late at the venue and to my mom for not following her words on punctuality. I felt feverish when I got up at 6 AM (with two alarms and a call from dad). So, slept again rescheduling the alarm to 7 AM, but when I woke the clock showed 7.55 AM. Feeling still drowsy, finished up the morning mandatory chores and grabbed THE HINDU from the stair case. Sat with the paper just to glance at the headlines, but dozed off. Woke up at 8.45 AM and had a double mind. Go, don't go. 

Then, convinced myself to go, since I hadn't gone to a Sangh related event in the past decade except my online presence with the organization. So, took bath and finished Sandhyavandhanam by 9.40 AM. Then started off for T.Nagar. Upon reaching T.Nagar, I asked a fellow with Khaki pants and shirt (seemed perfectly fit to be an auto driver) how to go to Krishna Gana Sabha. He told the route and I started off in that direction, but in seconds realized that he had guided me to Thyaga Brahma Gana sabha aka Vani Mahal. Called my friend and asked him about the route and he told me an entirely different direction. Trusting a friend is far better than trusting a stranger, so walked in the way my friend told me. And finally reached the venue. 

Found a couple of uniformed Swayamsevaks at the entrance and checked in after registering my name and other details. Someone was telling that the pooja had already started and people who came then were late. Realizing my mom's words were true "RSS would be strict with time. Go early." But convinced myself again with the English saying "Better late than never" and went into the hall. Mr.Ram Madhav (whom I had seen only in TV so far) was addressing the gathering. His speech was not arousing BP, nor egging on people to accept his words, but made people think why not? 

His words on the so-crowned intellectuals, was really thought provoking, and I started collecting information to write in my blog about how Das Kapital was misconstrued by Indian Communists. How they had failed to adapt that to Indian ethos and started pushing the European peasant's ethos upon their Indian counterparts. Nothing could be a success if not naturalized to the land of migration. So, is communism, Christianity, Islam etc. 

I wonder whether Mr. Madhav knew the fact that Christianity is getting Indianised in the deep south as they conduct car festival, mala dharan (like Sabhari mala yatra) to go to Velankanni. The famous Chandana Koodu of Ervadi Durha in Ramnad district is an adaptation. Instead of lamenting about 85 years of witch hunt by alleged KGB sleepers, why can't the Sangh take to works like temple cleaning, giving free tuition to needy children (strictly by the school syllabus initially), and slowly get into teaching them the Hindu ethos of respecting parents, elders, fellow humans and other living beings. This method would be good to gain ground in a atheism infested place like Tamil Nadu.

By such steps, we could gain ground in the households in the first place, then move on to the society on a whole. Change, even though damn good, would not be welcome for all. If we wish to change the 100s of years of mental corruption started by the British and proudly carried forward by those so-crowned intellectuals, we gotta be slow, steady and ready to patiently work towards the goal. 

Thought to open my mind, tell what I felt about the issues discussed there. I know Sangh has so many great minds, and heavy duty scholars in the decision making arena. But, thought to help out like the squirrel in Ramayana, so wrote this. Thanks for your time spent in reading my writing. Your comments are welcome. Corrections would be accepted. Thiruchitrambalam.
