The untold story of the massacre of 5000 Chitpavan Brahmins by Congress goons. - Written by Sid Iyer

On 30th January 1948, Nathuram Godse shot M K Gandhi from point-blank range. Gandhi died on spot. Indian state punished Godse for that and hanged him for killing a person who had advocated for non-violence throughout his life.

However, even before Godse’s hanging, the revengeful Congressi had decided to use Gandhi’s killing as a justification for the Chitpavan Brahmin massacre in Maharashtra.

The massacre started from Mumbai. Hours after Gandhi was killed, a wave of violence swept over whole Maharashtra. Chitpavan Brahmins, the class of Brahmins to which Nathuram Godse belonged were the main targets of groups committing violence.

For the next 4 to 5 days, Chitpavan Brahmins were subject to Mughalesque era killings, rapes, and lootings from Congressis in collusion with anti-Brahmin groups.

Why DMK is anti-Hindu?


The propaganda machine of DMK is working overtime to spread word that the party is not anti-Hindu, but reforming the existing setup. Whereas the so called temple reforms being announced are farcical in nature. And the defense put up to these so called reforms expect the audience to lack common sense.

Why EV Ramasamy doesn’t deserve to be celebrated?

 Social Justice means fair action in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges within a society. We have a galaxy of religious leaders, Saints and a council of social /political leaders who have been striving for suitable changes time and again since time immemorial. We have many glorious references in Tamil religious texts about social justice being administered through societal change initiated by a Saint or by Divine intervention as and when need had arisen.

EV Ramasamy, anointed as Periyar (Great man) by the Dravidian movement, had not been great by any means whereas mean by all means. It is one of the inveterate imbecilities of the beast on the roam in TamilNadu, dravidian stock, to hold high this anti-social as father of Tamil people.

Bomb that bonds

The recent visit of Saudi Arabian Crown Price Mohamed Bin Salman (MBS) to Pakistan and his promises there about billions of dollars worth of investments is, in some quarters of the society, sending conflicting signals as Saudi had earlier gave Pakistan a meager amount in aid and left it off with a mammoth debt. Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan had, as mocked by his own country's media and the world, has gone on a tour with a begging bowl to the Arab nations. He has also gone to China with the bowl, of course after carefully emptying it at Islamabad. China too has not been so magnanimous to Khan.

First off it was an ironic site to see the flamboyant Imran Khan, a former cricketer and a heftily wealthy man, to be seen begging at places where he had earlier used to flash his wealth and unleash lavishness. Of course China has no cricketing history nor has it a history of promoting tourism. So, Khan's flamboyance is not known in China except for intelligence inputs.

Chicago address of Swami Vivekananda - 2

Addresses at the Parliament of Religions - 2 
Why We Disagree

I will tell you a little story. You have heard the eloquent speaker who has just finished say, "Let us cease from abusing each other," and he was very sorry that there should be always so much variance.

But I think I should tell you a story that would illustrate the cause of this variance. A frog lived in a well. It had lived there for a long time. It was born there and brought up there, and yet was a little, small frog. Of course the evolutionists were not there then to tell us whether the frog lost its eyes or not but, for our story's sake, we must take it for granted that it had its eyes, and that it every day cleansed the water of all the worms and bacilli that lived in it with an energy that would do credit to our modern bacteriologists. In this way it went on and became a little sleek and fat. Well, one day another frog that lived in the sea came and fell into the well.

"Where are you from?"

"I am from the sea."

"The sea! How big is that? Is it as big as my well?" and he took a leap from one side of the well to the other.

"My friend," said the frog of the sea, "how do you compare the sea with your little well?"

Then the frog took another leap and asked, "Is your sea so big?"

"What nonsense you speak, to compare the sea with your well!"

"Well, then," said the frog of the well, "nothing can be bigger than my well. There can be nothing bigger than this. This fellow is a liar, so turn him out."

That has been the difficulty all the while.

I am a Hindu. I am sitting in my own little well and thinking that the whole world is my little well. The Christians sit in their little well and think the whole world is their well. The Muslims sit in their little well and think that is the whole world. I have to thank you of America for the great attempt you are making to break down the barriers of this little world of ours, and hope that, in the future, the Lord will help you to accomplish your purpose.

Chicago speech of Swami Vivekananda - 1

Swami Vivekananda’s speech at the Parliament of Religion, Chicago:  
Response to welcome:
Sisters and Brothers of America,
It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world. I thank you in the name of the mother of religions, and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.
My thanks also to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honor of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration but we accept all religions as true.
I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation.

I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, and which is every day repeated by millions of human beings:
As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which people take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.
The present convention, which is one of the most august assemblies ever held, is in itself a vindication, a declaration to the world of the wonderful doctrine preached in the Gita:
Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach them; all are struggling through paths which in the end lead to Me.
Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often and often with human blood, destroyed civilization and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now. But their time is come; and I fervently hope that the bell that tolled this morning in honor of this convention may be the death-knell of all fanaticism, of all persecutions with the sword or with the pen, and of all uncharitable feelings between persons wending their way to the same goal.

Refugee crisis and Europe - What is the way forward?

The world is too small to allow even a tiny part of it to step towards skepticism and melancholia. Economic impact would be disastrous at far off regions from the affected places due to intricate dependencies. Political impact would also be a reality thanks to Social Media and spread of information. Can't afford to discount the effects of religious discourses of fundamentalist nature.  When somebody of a religion is punched in a brawl in Africa, the 'religious brethren' get up in the arms throughout the rest of the world or a mass media campaign of alleged persecution is launched worldwide.
