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,

Nine Ways To Stop Conversions

Nine Ways To Stop Conversions

Thanks to “Ghar Vapasi” programs, the issue of conversions is in the news again. Unfortunately, no one seems to be going into the cause of conversions. Unless these are addressed, protests about conversions will influence only TRPs of TV channels

One: Money Power!

NGOs receive large contributions from foreign entities. These contributions from abroad are governed by the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) which requires the recipients to get prior approval from the Home Ministry (HM). The recipients could be religious, social, educational, cultural or educational organisations. The NGO has to annually submit audited accounts to HM who collate accounts to present the FCRA Annual Report. HM does a detailed check of randomly picked associations. The last available report is for the year 2011–12. Here are some key data:

  • There are approx. 42,000 registered NGO’s.
  • Over 80% of top 15 donor and recipient organizations are Christian, ironically in a country where roughly 80% of the population is Hindu. 
  • 148 organizations received more than Rs 10 crs (99 in 2005-06).
  • Between 1993-94 to 2011-12 NGOs received Rs 1,16,073 crs.

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 (?)

Why Christianity Poses A Clear Threat To India

Why Christianity Poses A Clear Threat To India

If you could sum up the history of Christianity in India in one word, that word would be ingratitude. Among the earliest refugees to arrive in India were the Syrian Christians, who were facing persecution in their native lands in the Persian Empire in the fourth century CE.

Persecution would be the wrong word to use here because the Syrian Christians of the Persian Empire were found to be collaborating with Christianised Rome. Aghast at the betrayal by his Christian subjects – in the midst of Persia’s war with the Romans – the Zoroastrian king Shapur II lamented: “We are in a state of war; they are in a state of joy and pleasure. They live in our land but are of like mind with the emperor, our enemy.”

Shahpur II deported some Christians from his Eastern Syrian province and imposed a double tax on those that remained. The Christian subjects were then ordered to revert to their native Zoroastrian religion.

Down on their luck, the Syrian Christians sought refuge in India. Kerala’s Malabar coast attracted them because they had heard of an ancient community of Jews who had been living there since the first century CE, having also fled the turmoil of the Middle East.

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?
