Paying tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru

Friends,

Today is 30th October. Two weeks from now we will see Indian English media, print and TV both, head over heels with Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru singing hymns of praise in fond memories of our "Chacha"! Of the tales how that great man built a nation with his immense intellect and charm...Yes, all the usual yada-yada-yada that they telecast every year. I remember seeing friends wearing those "Nehru" caps & jackets in school and making a fashion statement. Now that I am a grown up and have had enough opportunity to read about Nerhu and his life with intricate details, I am no more remorseful of the fact that my parents never bought me that cap!(Jacket was expensive for our middle class family anyway) Quite the contrary actually, had I ever had that cap, it would have made me very sad today. And following is why. (If you hoped for another ballad commemorating Mr. Nehru, it should serve you as a stark reminder that you are not up to speed with our nation Bharat's true history.)

It is no secret that it was due to Nehru's state of denial mixed with ignorance of Sardar Patel's advice, that we could not send the armed forces to Kashmir as a nation state protecting it's boundaries 'in time'. That led to creation of two Kashmir's, little less than 2/3 part with us and little more than 1/3 part with Pakistan. As if that one major foolhardiness was not enough, he decided to ensure he goes down in the history as most gullible Indian leader by taking the matters to United Nations which of course did not make us a happy nation either. He must not have heard the story of two cat and monkey in his childhood from his mother Swaroop Rani. Thanks to him, Kashmir, a problem, that still remains unsolved today and umpteenth amount of resources have been squandered away in last 65 years and still counting!

My obvious question was why and who the heck made that British educated chain-smoker, White-woman-fond (Just Google Nehru-Edwina) chap our first Prime Minister. Following is what I found out.
 It all started in 1946 when the Indian National Congress had to elect a new president.
It was an accepted fact that the leader chosen as Congress president would become the first prime minister of independent India. Three candidates were in the race: Acharya Kripalani, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Sardar Patel. The working committee of the INC and the pradesh committees had to send their nomination for one of the three candidates. Sardar Patel was unsurprisingly the most popular. Everyone knew his efficiency and his toughness for tackling difficult problems. 12 out of 19 Pradesh committees nominated him. None nominated Nehru. (YEP, NONE!)

From the start Gandhi had indicated that he favoured Nehru. His reasoning was that his British education was an asset: 'Jawaharlal cannot be replaced today whilst the charge is being taken from the British. He, a Harrow boy, a Cambridge graduate, and a barrister, is wanted to carry on the negotiations with the Englishmen.'

Another point Gandhi made was that while Sardar Patel would agree to work as Nehru's deputy, the reverse might not happen. He also felt that Nehru was better known abroad and could help India play a role in international affairs.

Eventually, in deference to Gandhi, Kripalani nominated Nehru and withdrew from the race. Patel had no choice but to follow his colleague 'so that Nehru could be elected unopposed.' Dr Rajendra Prasad later stated: 'Gandhi has once again sacrificed his trusted lieutenant for the sake of the glamorous Nehru.'

It is how India got a Kashmiri Pandit as its first prime minister. If you want to learn more about these events, the best way is to watch old Hindi movie called Sardar Patel. Embedding a small clip of this event from the movie here.



Before ending this topic, I want to give readers some quotes from a newspaper source and will urge to read more about this so undeserving leader who hogs limelight every year.

Nehru’s close friend Sriprakash told Sardar “there was no trace of Hindutva in Motilal Nehru. He was three-quarters Englishman and one quarter Muslim. How can you expect any Hindutva in his son?”
Link to that article

Ghanshyamdas Birla said “Nehru’s whole family would have embraced Islam is they had not come in contact with Gandhiji.” 

The irony is, Hindus still 'today' consider this Nehru family their leader! Happy "Chacha Nehru" day to all of you in advance :)

Yellow Journalism by Wall Street Journal in India Real Time series.

Hi Friends,

So far it was my firm belief that US based media houses are free of any political kowtowing. I believed they may have their partisan views but they would NEVER indulge in intentionally misleading and completely wrong reporting of events that are of vital importance. The kind of reporting which is widespread in India, which we call "paid media" reporting, which has never been successfully challenged in the court of law so far. One of the worst flavour of such reporting is where media houses blatantly quote leaders of party with the words they never mentioned, in complete disregard of journalism ethics. (In case u wonder about the publishing laws, following laws is not what professional Indian journalists are exactly too worried about)

WSJ(Wall Street Journal) has proved me wrong. WSJ's reporter Ms. Jyoti Malhotra has written a piece called How Advani’s Yatra Is Undermining the BJP and also published the same article in Hindi(Click here for Hindi version)

She quoted in her article the following.

"Meanwhile, 84-year-old party leader L.K. Advani’s journey across the Hindi heartland to talk about corruption – and his refusal to rule himself out of the prime ministerial race in 2014 — has severely embarrassed the party."

In Hindi,

"इस बीच, पार्टी के 84 वर्षीय नेता एल.के.आडवाणी द्वारा भ्रष्टाचार पर भाषण देने के लिए हिंदी भाषी राज्यों में यात्रा-और 2014 में होने वाले चुनावों में खुद के प्रधानमंत्री पद की दौड़ से बाहर रहने से इन्कार- ने पार्टी को शर्मिंदा किया।"

Now following is what Mr. Advani actually said in the press conference, quoting from rediff news link
Dismissing opposition's claims that he was using his nationwide yatra to promote himself for the prime ministerial candidate, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Lal Krishna Advani on Friday said collective decisions are taken in his party which does not believe in dynastic politics. "I am not in the race for prime ministership," he said in response to queries from journalists.
Here is some more evidence.



Can someone suggest if we can challenge WSJ here in USA in court for printing such completely false report?

Thanks,

From Ahmedabad.

Dani-Limda area corporator Inaayat Husain Saiyad of Congress party has been booked by the area Police for assaulting Govt Staffer. According to reports, Mr. Saiyad and another Congress worker physically attacked the Govt. staff for refusing to add names of illegal Bangladeshi residents residing near Chandola lake into the voter's list.

A state-wide voter's list improvement program is underway keeping in view of upcoming 2012 state assembly elections. As part of that program, work was being carried out on 16th of October near Chandola lake in N.V. Patel High School. Mr. Inaayat Husain Saiyad of Congress party arrived along with another Congress worker at the school. Out of several Govt staffers present, he insisted to Mr. A.M. Mevani, a senior clark, to include the names of Bangladeshi illegal immigrants in the neighborhood in the official voter's list. Mr. Mevani's refusal to entertain such request was met with physical attack on him and his cell phone was seized by the accused. Dani Limda Police arrived on the scene but no actions were taken.

Later, Mr. Mevani sought approval of Collector to file a case against Mr. Saiyad. Upon receipt of approval on Thursday Mr. Mevani(Senior Clark at the Office of Medical services,Ahmedabad) filed a report against Mr. Saiyad and another Congress worker at Dani Limda Police Station. PSI Mr. Jadeja is examining the case. The accused has not been arrested at the time of writing this report.

Economic times editor in the doc

Hello,

Its been a while we discussed some of the current affairs topic. Today I want to talk about recent attack on Mr. Prashant Bhushan, a member of Team Anna and a Supreme Court lawyer by some youth identifying themselves as members of Sri Ram Sena. Economic times published an editorial which talks about such "attacks on democracy". Sure, there is no denial no one should take law in to his/her own hands. However what I wonder is, did this same editor raise his voice earlier? This is certainly not the first so called 'attack' on our democracy. I wrote the following comment on the article which was dis-approved by the editor and obviously not published. It seems from the editor's article that only wrongdoings of individuals/social organizations can be classified as an 'attack'. Govt of India herself is exempt from being on the list of such 'attacker' despite crossing the line on many counts.

QUOTE:
Amazed at the narrow-mindedness of editor of Economic times which now qualifies such attacks as attack on democracy. Mr. editor, according to your article it seems only the cases in which physical violence is involved will be classified as "attacks on democracy"?

Let's talk in detail. Did u qualify following laundry list as  an "attack on democracy"?

1) Did you qualify unconstitutional ban on Baba Ramdev's Aastha channel as an attack on democracy?
2) Did you qualify unconstitutional addition of Mr. Robert Vadera to list of VVIP's exempt from frisking at the airport as an attack on democracy?
3) Did you qualify abuse of police power on sleeping protesters at Ramlil Maidan as an attack on democracy?
4) Did you qualify diversion of trains from Karnataka en-route to Kashmir for flag hoisting in Sri-nagar's Lal chowk on 26th January 2011 as an attack on democracy?

List goes on & u sure know that!
Look my friend, r u hand in hand with corrupt Congress? If so, just admit it. It's better that way. It takes balls for a man to accept who he really is.

Yes! Rahul Gandhi is Harvard Graduate.......until you find out the truth

If someone told you, Mr.White is Harvard graduate maxima cum laude ('with maximal honor/praise.'), likely your reaction would be that of awe. And you may carry some lasting respect sub-consciously for Mr. White which may help him earn your allegiance in future. And there is nothing wrong in it, except if it was a lie to begin with.Well, that's exactly the dirty trick played by mahachor (Leader of thieves) Congress party of Bharat and it's followers. Kindly go through the following newspaper article that establishes this truth firmly. It's time we unearth every single lie/canard/rumour spread by Congress party for their own benefit. (Yeah, right, you thought country matters for them..Drink some coffee mate!)

It happens only in India!!

Finally some "It happens only in India" type news...Njoy..(This is real news, not a joke)

Chennai, May 6: Funeral prayers were held on Friday in a Chennai mosque for slain al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and its Imam slammed the US for ''inhumanly'' killing and burying him in the sea.


"America killed him inhumanly and left his body in the sea without performing Janazah. So, we conducted Janazah (funeral prayer) for him," Moulana Shamsudeen Qasimi, the Imam of Makkah Masjid in Anna Salai, said. [Read: Two held in Kerala for distributing cards hailing Osama]

Asked whether they had sought permission from police, the Imam said "it was conducted inside the mosque. We need police permission only if it was conducted in a public place."

Introducing Dhruv Stambha in New Delhi or Qutb Minar as known today...

Dhruva Stambha
Hello,

In case you also happen to have deep interests in forgotten/neglected ancient Hindu sites that tells a tale of the passed times, this will interest you. Had long heard that "Qutb Minar" was actually part of ancient religious complex holding several Hindu and Jain temples in the times of Chauhan dynasty ruling over Delhi around 11th century. That was a starting point. What made me more curious was this note on Wikipedia which says "engraving on the Qutub Minar reads, "Shri Vishwakarma prasade rachita" (Conceived with the grace of Lord Vishwakarma.)

Ok, so that was enough to get started with some research work and gather some more info. Following material is collected from various sources and re-produced with permissions. Special thanks to the friends who contributed.




Lal Kot, Qila Rai Pithora and Siri


In North Bharart, areas surrounding Lal Kot and Siri were ruled by the Hindu kings around 700AD. Lal Kot, meaning Red Fortress was the first city to be constructed in the Delhi area by the Anang Pal, the first. It is also believed it is during this time that Hindu and Jain temples came in to existence in that place. This was between 731-750 AD.  Evidence suggests that the Tomars(Anang Pal was of Tomar clan) ruled the Suraj Kund and surrounding areas until around 1150 AD. There were several Rajput clans existing in those times and Prithviraj Chauhan of the Chauhan Rajputs seized power of the area in along the end of 11th Century. Prithviraj extended the city and renamed the area Qila Rai Pithora. During the 10th and 11th centuries Afghans had led raiding parties into Bharat for plunder, but this changed in the late 12th Century with the arrival of Muhammad Ghauri who wished to extend his kingdom here. In 1185 he took Lahore and begun his campaigns against the Rajputs.

The Rajputs defeated Ghauri in 1191 in the Battle of Terain, but their code of honour led to Ghauri’s release. After several failed attempts(folklores mentions 17), Ghauri finally was able to defeat the Rajputs, however Ghauri did not have the same battle code and kept Prithviraj his prisoner. The story of how Ghauri was able to defeat the Rajputs in 18th attack, found in manuscripts Prithviraj Raso, is equally interesting. Prithviraj Raso, the epic poem written by royal poet of Prithviraj Chauhan, Chand Bardai, is the most authentic source of history of the times. It says, Ghauri had asked his army commanders to add cow-herds afront his foot-army which put the Rajputs in dharmic dillemma as they would not dare shoot bows and arrows fearing hurting/killing cows considered sacred by Hindu soldiers. This enabled Ghauri to take control of Lal Kot and Qila Rai Pithora. His empire extended from Delhi through Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turekestan. Ghauri left one of his Generals and also his slave, the Turk Qutb-ud-din Aibak as Viceroy of Delhi. Qutb-ud-din Aibak started work on Quawwat ul Islam Mosque within the city of Lal Kot. This was on top of previous Hindu structures and certainly part of old temples demolished by Ghauri's army were utilised in the building.
Information so far suggests us, okay, so may be there were temples there and Lal Kot was controlled by Hindus then. So What? What about the Tower? We are not aware of towers outside temples. Following article that explains the purpose of the Dhruva Stambha(Yes, not Qutb Minar) is certainly an eye-opener. Those who know Hinduism enough would certainly concur that offering Lotus to Lord Vishnu has been part of the religious cerimonies for eons. Also is the known fact that study of "Nakshtra's", part of Hindu astrological science, by Hindu sages/Gurus has also been a long standing practise. With that in mind, please go through the following scanned pages.




Finally, note that I am deeply disappointed by the GOI (which is intenationally or unintentionally) spreading poorly/insufficiently researched material on this historical monument through their official youtube channel here. Sincere hope is, just as existence of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya was proven in the court of law, one day Dhruva Stmabha will also become 'legally' recognized ancient site of another Hindu temple destructed during Islmaic rule in Bharat. Remember our national emblem? Satyamev Jayate. Jay Hind. Jay Shri Ram.

Debunking the myth of Sonia Gandhi sacrificing Prime Ministerial birth in 2009

Back in 2009, I had a conversation with my father about why Sonia Gandhi is giving away the crown she apparently had worked so hard to wear. My father, a middle class man in his 50's and otherwise very astute political analyst, had no convincing explanation. Perhaps he along with the nation was bought in to the theory that Sonia Gandhi is being very kind to keep the PM post open for more deserving senior Congress leader. So much was the disappointment of seeing Saffron party loose that election that I left that question unanswered then.

Despite the next general election being faaaaar away, through one of the twitter discussions this question popped up again. This time I made some attempt. Read the Indian citizenship act to find out if what Mr. Swamy is preaching in this following video is true or not..




Well, certainly I will not answer what I found in the act. It is for YOU, the alert and concerned citizen to pick the book/website and read and do some fact finding. What I want to talk about is utter failure of BJP(Bharatiya Janta Party) and every other party that sits in the Loksabha as 'opposition' to bring the relevant act details to the concerned aam admi. BJP's brouhaha back in 2009 over Sonia Gandhi's anticipated election as PM candidate by Congress party was ineffective and quickly lost steam in the eyes of middle class simply because this class, which you and me belongs to, believes more in facts and rules as we are 'very' law abiding people. Had BJP been able to share this 'info' with the people, they cud have spared themselves from hurting their throats and earning more respect as a by-product. After all a Harvard graduate (and present lecturer there) who had been ex-union law minister of our nation won't be leveling baseless claims without his homework, would he?

The shrinking Hindu space




Guest post by one of the few balanced and independent right-wing activist on Twitter (@Barbarindian)

Perhaps nothing illustrates the extreme prejudice and visceral hatred this administration harbors towards Hindus quite like this video. A senior Congress leader and designated mentor to the crown Prince, no less, mercilessly kicking an would be shoe attacker. That video basically sums up what Congress would do to us, given a chance.

As we have been saying for quite sometime, what we have here is not mere hardball politics, we have long transitioned into a different ballgame. From mere socio-economic re-engineering, we have transitioned into genocidal territory.

The completely needless and strategically foolish police action of last Saturday when a battalion of handpicked Delhi Police converged in on the Ramlila grounds, where tens of thousands of devotees, as many as half of them women and children, had already retired for the night, was designed to inflict casualties - which it did. Up to a 100 people were injured, many of them critically. A woman still remains comatose. The fact that it did not result in a stampede is a miracle in itself and perhaps speaks for the discipline and self-restraint of the devotees. The police had fired so many teargas shells that beat journos had irritation and tears in their eyes until late next morning.

This operation had to be authorized at the highest levels. No one at a lower level who would have the gumption to order a lathi charge and teargas shelling in a tent containing so many women and children.

Proposing new flag for India

Those who have keen interests in politics have been closely watching outcome of the Assembly elections that took place in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, West Bengal and Assam in April 2011. Timing of this election was very interesting. It came in the backdrop of much fanfare on various scams that put India on back-foot on international stage such as 2G spectrum allotment scam, Adarsh land scam, Common Wealth Games(CWG) scam, ISRO band allocation scam. BJP was predicting to open an account in Left bastion Kerala as per Speaker of the Opposition Ms. Sushma Swaraj. Unless you took her seriously, the outcome was not unexpected, nevertheless disappointing. No, its not disappointing because Hindu nationalist BJP could only manage 3 out of a whopping total of 824 assembly seats of all 4 states combined. It is not only because "real red" Mamata Banerjee will replace the 33 year old Marxist rule in WB. Many political pandits have described her as "far-left" leader. It is also because Kerala again has gone to UDF(United Democratic Front) which is Pro-Sharia law alliance led by INC(Indian National Congress). Assam has gone to Congress too. Not just that Congress won, BJP came down to 3/4 from 10. There, as Guwahati based friend on twitter(@rajudasonline) mentioned it was a choice between corrupt BUT performing Congress and corrupt PLUS non-performing AGP(Assom Gan Parishad) which is an ally of BJP. Gist is, anyway you look at it, Hindus are routed from political scene in all these states. If we extrapolate these trends well up to 2050, here is how our new national flag could just be :) Cheers!

Still wondering why Hindu Defense League?

On the 7th March 2011, in a post here on Deshdaaz, the need for Hindu Defense League(HDL) was expressed. As expected readers expressed concerns in private. I remain fettered to that view. Take a look at this video why the need is NOW. Once you finish watching begin to count how many "NO-Go Zones" in Bharat. More importantly are these NO-Go zones increasing/decreasing over time. Lastly salute to the brave French woman in the video.

Awesome footage just in from NNN(Nationalist News Network)

Friends,

Please don't miss this raw unedited/uncut videos of  Barkha Dutt being forced to leave from India Gate in New Delhi. She attempted to cover people's movement against Corruption. Barkha Dutt, a tainted journalist from media house called NDTV, is alleged to be facilitating negotiations on union ministerial positions between ruling Congress party of Bharat and her ally DMK.

Introducing Darul Uloom Deoband in Bharat

Post partition of Bharat, Darul Uloom Deoband has been by far the most renowned and influential school of thought for spreading Islamic thought throughout the world in modern times. It is also the largest school in terms of out-reach beyond Asia, consistently ranked above University of Al-Karaouine and Al-Azhar University, most noted chief centers of Arabic literature and for spreading Sunni Islamic thought.

That is what prompted to read and research more about Darul Uloom Deoband. What comes next is un-comforting and unnerving. Every aware person irrespective of his religion must know what Darul Uloom Deoband based in Uttar Pradesh is teaching about religions, well beyond borders of Hindustan. Watch patiently and carefully and wait until it comes to teaching about Hindus/Hinduism. This video is only part 1 produced by EDL or English Defense League. Other parts are available on youtube.

Note: Mentally prepared to take on abuse and threats that will follow as this post goes live. Perhaps would not have gathered courage to raise my voice if not for the NYPD :). Thank you USA.

It is time for HDL, Hindu Defense League, if we care as much about our kids, as much our parents cared for us. HAF or Hindu American Foundation is first step in that direction.

Responding to Mr. Vir Sanghvi.

Our self-confessed member of secular establishment, Mr. Vir Sanghvi has published this in view of latest court verdict on Godhra case. (Link with details on verdict)

Here are Deshdaaz's quick and initial observations on the post by Mr. Sanghvi.

Dear Mr. Sanghvi,

Wrote to you on twitter and again writing here(talk about 140 chars limits!). Your article is very interesting in many respects.

1) The timing of the article : Post Nira Radia gate, you & other journos(Barkh Dutt to be precise) desperately seek to claim back the space ceded to upcoming journalists. Let me point out the obvious that it takes years to build respect,moment to loose.

2) This article is indicative of secular establishment acknowledging tough road ahead(painted saffron!!) on the way back to power in 2014.

3) It is also an inkling of rift within secular establishment and your article serves to limit the fallout by drawing attention of the stakeholders of the establishment AND at the same time personally score some points on the blackboard of Narendra Modi :), an indeed intelligent maneuver Mr. Sanghvi.

Lastly, for whatever reason(s) behind, it is refreshing to see a New Delhi based writer to able to call spade a spade. Believe Mr. Sanghvi deserve pat for it.

Uttar Pradesh staggering in darkness....light to come

Hurray ! Finally poor Hindu Indians will be shown light !


India (MNN) ― After hearing story after story of church growth in India, it's easy to start believing that everyone in the country has access to a church--and certainly to the Word. India's a big country though, and although the Lord has undoubtedly been moving, there is still a vast field to harvest.
According to Operation World, the state of Uttar Pradesh in India is one of the least-evangelized places in the world. Operation World experts say, "This single state of India probably represents the most intense concentration of unevangelized people and groups in the world, and thereby the greatest mission challenge."
A recent census says 579 of the state's 613 people groups have no Christians at all.
The church in the state of Punjab in India is growing a little faster. 60 percent of people in the state still follow the Sikhism, but believers are growing in number. One Bibles for the World missionary recently reported baptizing over 100 new believers across Punjab in 2010.
Church growth is encouraging in Punjab, but still the majority of people are not following Christ.


Each state of India has its unique challenges, but Bibles for the World has taken up the plights of these two for now. In response to the darkness covering Uttar Pradesh and the need in Punjab, Bibles for the World is preparing to print 1.2 million copies of the Gospel of John in Punjabi and Hindi in 2011. The Word will be distributed across Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.
Bibles for the World invites you to join them in this exciting effort to plant the seed of God's Word in these two states this year. Your financial and prayer support are most welcome. If you feel God calling you to be a financial part of this transformative year, click here.
Image of Hindi Bible distributed in Bharat
Pray that these Gospels would reach the hearts of millions across the two states. Pray especially for Uttar Pradesh, that the number of people groups without believers would drop significantly in 2011, and that the powerful light of Christ would shine brightly across the entire nation.

Hindus should be ashamed of their-selves for not being able to stop evangelists from converting their 'own' poor and uneducated Hindu brothers and sisters by means of force/deception/enticement.

We, The Hindus

First things first, the title of this post is inspired by News anchor Barkha Dutt's show "We the People". Despite all the allegations against her (which perhaps will never be proven but personally speaking, I am inclined to believe they are true), rightfully so I would give her credit for it. After reading @nationalizer post on Citizen Journos it just struck me like a lightening on this icy morning. Sooner or later, it will strike more or less every Hindu. Just how every hurricane in USA is named (Ike,Gustave etc), I call this lightening "Prahar"...

Until just yesterday, I believed KP's exodus from valley in the 90's was the only instance when either due to circumstances/shortcomings/
lack of preparedness/anticipation whatever you call it, Hindus retreated 4m what was their beloved home/motherland. Well, nationalizer's post says that was not the only incident of the its kind. Konkani's moving away from Goa due to incoming Portuguese was also one such case. Just then I was forced to sit back in think in retrospect. That is when "Prahar" hit me & made me realize, if we think carefully we, the Hindus have always run away. Here is small list that I could compile based on my personal life experience and knowledge and I am sure many readers will have their own additions to it....

1) It all begins in the childhood during school days. Take a case of a 5th grader going to school being bullied by kid(s). What are the actions of his Hindu parents. a) Ask the kid to stay away from the bully. b) Try to get his/her class changed from "A" to "B" through special request. c) In extreme case, change the school of their kid. Instead did any parent tell his/her kid, "Look boy/girl, be STRONG. Let no one bully you" OR complain to a teacher? A handful might.

2) We grow up and some of us fall in love with the "wrong" person. One of the possible action is elopement.

3)Very vividly recall, at the age of 12, when we moved to "western" part of our city from another area, we were met with many new residents from the "old city" or the "walled city" area. This is the part where main bazars of the city are and were once 100 % occupied by Hindus. Slowly Muslims started to occupy some residential places thanks to progressive Hindus who started to sell their properties to them, breaking away from the norm/tradition. Although there is/was no apparent harm in living together in peace, slowly the existing residents started to move out to newly developed western part of the city.

4) Many well-educated Hindus from almost every state of India, riding high on their educational success took first available flight to USA(including myself). Though some of us would be genuinely interested in pursuing higher studies or have passion in fundamental research that would eventually help mankind, majority fall in the basket tagged "Let's run away from India". Because my family persuaded me based on my Maths/Science skills, I would also fall in second category. I was being pushed away from the corrupt and future-less India perceived then. Again knowingly/unknowingly going away from the problem.

5) Here in USA, where we do all the due diligence before we buy our first house. Despite that, say for instance the public school that your kid goes to in your neighborhood is now ranked lower consecutively for 2 years OR the beautiful park near our house is going to be converted in to a commercial complex. What would be our next step ? Of course Sell Baby SELL!! Sell the house and look for better area,new house.Trying to fight back and keep the park? Oh, that's for the white residents of the subdivision !!!

6) Hindus remaining in Pakistan/Bangladesh have repeatedly requested asylum in India.

7) In recent(actually on-going) communal clashes between Hindu Rabha Community and Christian Garo community on Assam-Meghalaya border, Hindus ran away from their properties and later complained about their burnt down/vandalized houses/shops. Oh sorry, you probably don't know this because CON-gress hired pet TV media did not show it to you. Here are some links. (No one cares about stupid,"un-united" 800 million fools of this nation !)

Careful thinking of all the above situations reveals only one thing. Lack of willingness to fight back the odds. Mahatma Gandhi Bapu once said something in the order that one can fight strong body but it is impossible to fight strong mind. Sadly we, the Hindus lack both.

Just how long will we, the Hindus would keep running away from our problems ? This "Run-away" marathon worked well so far for us. Left India to settle in other parts of the world to avoid fighting back.BUT WHAT NOW? There is NO MORE land on this planet left for us to run away. Our only last remaining (and diligently avoided all this far) choice is to stand up and fight WHEREVER we are. Communities/states/nations can be better or worst based on our collective efforts. Will we ever realize that ? How many "Prahars" do we need to realize this?

This right or wrong over-thinking/analyzing Hindus/Hinduism motivated me to get up @ 3 am and compile these thoughts. Full credits for this goes to my beloved state leader and Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi. He once said "Dreams are not what you see when you sleep, dreams are those which don't let you sleep"...I have one such dream...Do you ?

Firmly in agreement with @nationalizer in that "I dream  to see all kashmiri pandits happily living  in their homeland Kashmir,atleast two years befor I die…!!!!"

Though I have NEVER been to a single RSS(Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) Shakha/presentation/function, I would like to conclude by para-phrasing one of their song lines...."हिंदू जागे तो विश्व जागे"
 जय हिंद |
