Well, Swami’s have been known for meditation and deliverance of peace away from the market yard in some arid or freeze place. Take A Break!! Something different happens out here, a saffron- clad swami has just entered the BIG BOSS House.↓
Religion cum Business
Yes, religion is another color of an umbrella all directed towards monetary gains. Swami Agnivesh promoting this culture in it’s true essence making TRP market for Indian Television. What more to except? A Sadhu cum Swami is certainly being lost out somewhere midst of market culture leaving aside his mandal philosophies.
Let the Swami Say
Keeping the Indian Democracy prior, Swami embarks upon his reputation which got disturbed earlier this year during the Massive Anna-Hazare LokPal campaign. Swami was challenged by few to act as an informer to the government in the Anna Hazare camp. Hence Swami puts it clearly his intention to re-establish his ruined relationship with the public.↓
Where is the Mistake↑
Swami has kept on committing mistakes and they add on with just a few more. There is already a difference between him and the other contestant further the Hindu Sangs have already objected his idea’s of being in any reality show.
Hence, it’s all losses for Swami Agnivesh here.
Would love to write on you some more condition if it was only on bonded labour. These activities are only meant for Television and write-ups.
Since been a kid every child learns and knows the things and facts which his parent, teachers and society wants him to know…
Now as we are grown ups we listen and discuss only those topics which media hypes and are interesting to us, sometimes we miss some points due to negligence and sometimes some points (some very important points) are not given any importance by media and society for various reasons.
I want to share my views on one of those points, you can add some points to this or can contradict on these, I will welcome every comment
We all Know who was Nathuram Godse ………..an assassin of Mahatma Gandhi, He committed one of the greatest crime of Indian history, we all read this in history books. Now let us discuss the untold.
We read about the crime but what was the motive behind the crime, before going to that point we must know who Nathuram Godse was…
Nathuram Godse was born in Baramati , Maharashtra in a Brahmin family. His father Vinayak Vamanrao Godse was a post office employee. It is hard to understand Godse as governmement has suppressed the information about him including the court statements, letters etc were banned for public until recently.
Histories are always written according to the king
Sometimes I ask to myself what would be the reason behind this, didn’t he have the freedom to express himself or he was an exception to that freedom or something else.
Preliminary investigations of the Gandhiji’s murder case revealed that he was the editor of a Marathi newspaper– Hindu rashtra, and one of the biggest follower of Veer Savarkar and Mahatma Gandhi.
Nathuram Godse was arrested moments after shooting Gandhi, and was taken to the nearby Tughlaq Road police station. A reporter somehow managed to see him and ask him whether he have anything to say ‘For the present I only want to say that I am not at all sorry for what I have done‘, he replied. ‘The rest I will explain in court.
On 8 November 1948, he was allowed his day in the sun when he rose to make his statement. Reading quietly from a typed manuscript, he sought to explain why he had killed Gandhi. His thesis covered ninety-pages, and he was on his feet for five hours. Godse’s statement should be quoted extensively as it provides the insight of his personality and some reasons..
“Born in a devotional Brahmin family, I instinctively came to revere Hindu religion, Hindu history and Hindu culture. I had, therefore, been intensely proud of Hinduism as a whole. As I grew up I developed a tendency to free thinking unfettered by any superstitious allegiance to any isms, political or religious. That is why I worked actively for the eradication of untouchability and the caste system based on birth alone. I openly joined anti-caste movements and maintained that all Hindus were of equal status as to rights, social and religious and should be considered high or low on merit alone and not through the accident of birth in a particular caste or profession. I used publicly to take part in organized anti-caste dinners in which thousands of Hindus, Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, Chamars and Bhangis participated. We broke the caste rules and dined in the company of each other. I have read the speeches and writings of Dadabhai Nairoji, Vivekanand, Gokhale, Tilak, along with the books of ancient and modern history of India and some prominent countries like England, France, America and’ Russia. Moreover I studied the tenets of Socialism and Marxism. But above all I studied very closely whatever Veer Savarkar and Gandhiji had written and spoken, as to my mind these two ideologies have contributed more to the moulding of the thought and action of the Indian people during the last thirty years or so, than any other single factor has done.
All this reading and thinking led me to believe it was my first duty to serve Hindudom and Hindus both as a patriot and as a world citizen. To secure the freedom and to safeguard the just interests of some thirty crores (300 million) of Hindus would automatically constitute the freedom and the well being of all India, one fifth of human race. This conviction led me naturally to devote myself to the Hindu Sanghtanist ideology and programme, which alone, I came to believe, could win and preserve the national independence of Hindustan, my Motherland, and enable her to render true service to humanity as well.
Since the year 1920, that is, after the demise of Lokamanya Tilak, Gandhiji’s influence in the Congress first increased and then became supreme. His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their intensity and were reinforced by the slogan of truth and non-violence, which he paraded ostentatiously before the country. No sensible or enlightened person could object to those slogans.
I would consider it a religious and moral duty to resist and, if possible, to overpower such an enemy by use of force. [In the Ramayana] Rama killed Ravana in a tumultuous fight and relieved Sita. [In the Mahabharata], Krishna killed Kansa to end his wickedness; and Arjuna had to fight and slay quite a number of his friends and relations including the revered Bhishma because the latter was on the side of the aggressor. It is my firm belief that in dubbing Rama, Krishna and Arjuna as guilty of violence, the Mahatma betrayed a total ignorance of the springs of human action.
In more recent history, it was the heroic fight put up by Chhatrapati Shivaji that first checked and eventually destroyed the Muslim tyranny in India. It was absolutely essentially for Shivaji to overpower and kill an aggressive Afzal Khan, failing which he would have lost his own life. In condemning history’s towering warriors like Shivaji, Rana Pratap and Guru Gobind Singh as misguided patriots, Gandhiji has merely exposed his self-conceit. He was, paradoxical, as it may appear, a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the name of truth and non-violence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji and the Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen forever for the freedom they brought to them.
The accumulating provocation of thirty-two years, culminating in his last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the existence of Gandhi should be brought to an end immediately.
In his words “I don’t refute Gandhi’s theory of non-violence. He may be a saint but he is not a politician. His theory of non-violence denies self-defence and self-interest. The non-violence that defines the fight for survival as violence is a theory not of non-violence but of self-destruction.The division of the nation was an unnecessary decision. What was the percentage of the Muslim population as compared to the population of the nation? There was no need for a separate nation. Had it been a just demand, Maulana Azad would not have stayed back in India. But because Jinnah insisted and because Gandhi took his side, India was divided, in spite of opposition from the nation, the Cabinet. An individual is never greater than a nation. The central government had taken a decision — Pakistan will not be given Rs 55 crores. On January 13 Gandhi started a fast unto death that Pakistan must be given the money. On January 13, the central government changed its earlier decision and announced that Pakistan would be given the amount. In a democracy you cannot put forward your demands at knife-point. Jinnah did it and Gandhi stabbed the nation with the same knife. He dissected the land and gave a piece to Pakistan. We did picket that time but in vain. The Father of our Nation went to perform his paternal duties for Pakistan! Gandhi blackmailed the cabinet with his fast unto death. His body, his threats to die is causing the destruction — geographical as well as economical — of the nation. Today, Muslims have taken a part of the nation, tomorrow Sikhs may ask for Punjab. The religions are again dividend into castes, they will demand sub-divisions of the divisions. What remains of the concept of one nation, national integration? Why did we fight the British in unison for independence? Why not separately? Bhagat Singh did not ask only for an independent Punjab or Subhash Chandra Bose for an independent Bengal?
I am going to assassinate him in the open, before the public, because I am going to do it as my duty. If I do it surreptitiously, it becomes a crime in my own eyes. I will not try to escape, I will surrender and naturally I will be hanged. One assassination, one hanging. I don’t want two executions for one assassination and I don’t want your involvement, participation or company. (This was for Nana-Apte and Veer Savarkar as they were against Gandhi’s policies too, Godse wanted to assassinate gandhi all by himself and took promise from Nana Apte that he will continue helping Veer Savarkar in rebuilding India as a strong free nation.
On January 30, I reached Birla Bhavan at 12 pm. Gandhi was sitting outside on a cot enjoying the sunshine. Vallabhbhai Patel’s granddaughter was sitting at his feet. I had the revolver with me. I could have assassinated him easily then, but I was convinced that his assassination was to be a punishment and a sentence against him, and I would execute him. I wanted witnesses for the execution but there were none. I did not want to escape after the execution as there was not an iota of guilt in my mind. I wanted to surrender, but surrender to whom? There was a good crowd to collect for the evening prayers. I decided on the evening of January 30 as the date for Gandhi’s execution.
Gandhi climbed the steps and came forward. He had kept his hands on the shoulders of the two girls. I wanted just three seconds more. I moved two steps forward and faced Gandhi. Now I wanted to take out the revolver and salute him for whatever sacrifice and service he had made for the nation. One of the two girls was dangerously close to Gandhi and I was afraid that she might be injured in the course of firing. As a precautionary measure I went one more step ahead, bowed before him and gently pushed the girl away from the firing line. The next moment I fired at Gandhi. Gandhi was very weak, there was a feeble sound like ‘aah’ (There are proof that Gandhi did NOT say “Hey Raam” at that time – it’s just made up stuff) from him and he fell down.
After the firing I raised my hand holding the revolver and shouted, ‘Police, police’. For 30 seconds nobody came forward and I scanned the crowd. I saw a police officer. I signalled to him to come forward and arrest me. He came and caught my wrist, then a second man came and touched the revolver… I let it go…”
Sep 22, 2011 (Wednesday)
A two-member delegation Justice Nasir Aslam Jahid, a former judge of Pakistan’s Supreme Court, and Karamat Ali well-known peace activist from Pakistan on Wednesday met social activist Anna Hazare at his native village Ralegan Siddhi and extended an invitation to visit the neighbouring country.
“The success of Hazare’s anti-corruption movement had boosted the morale of the activists in Pakistan. The people of Pakistan wanted Hazare to visit the country,” said Karamat Ali.
Today, Anna’s words have immense power not only in India, but also throughout South Asia and the entire world,” said Justice Zahid.
Anna Hazare later said that like India, Pakistan too faced a serious problem of corruption and “I would like to go there if my visit is going to help” the anti-corruption movement there.
If I will admire a fairly tale, it would have elements of Arun Shorie, Arun Jaitely, Jashwant Singh, Raman Singh,but rather not the present-day epic hero Narendra Modi. Certainly, the recent drainage of the Congress trust have made way for the second greatest political party, which I refine as a consequenceof negative voting resulting from the basket of scams produced by the present government. Bhartiya Janta party and its hero Narendra Modi have nothing good in store to be the Prime Minister and rule the nation. It’s no secret they ruled the nation just few strokes back when on some occasion their partyPresident Bangaru laxman was caught accepting bribe while on other the party provoked communal violence and disrupted the civil peace of the society.
Modi Won’t Talk Godhra
Why won’t he speak on the Godhra? A man of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh who further has a hard bound rubber stamp “Communal”. None, but the issue has said it all. Modi had walked out when interviewed by Karan Thapar regarding the same. The court witnesses have said a more prolonged story in this regard. Let’s keep the Hindu-vote bank aside, has Modi done well for secularism? Answers may be many that stick to Modi’s agenda for keeping development over vote bank politics while the happy Muslims in Gujrat have answered it correctly. The statements doesn’t end here, will Narendra Modi enlighten a movement of development a prior objective or rather support his poor party Mandir agenda. It strictly calls him a person of weak planning and management and a silence on Godhra just gives a Replica of Dr. Singh who is often put under shadow being balmy criticized.
Are these Prime Minister’s wrong or just a perception of a human mind for them to be wrong.
If Modi happens to be good, I rather not support for the society that would make him. Else, he never had the seeds of honestly just like the present Prime Minister of India has.
Lok Ayukta Fear
While Dr. Manmohan Singh is ready to be under any ambit then what makes Modi fear ahead. It makes one question Narendra Modi, is he the next Karnataka? His hard business driven models on whom we categorize as a prosperous Gujarat have a list of scams for which the present chief minister is not comfortable to answer.
The Singur controversy on the world’s cheapest car ‘Tata Nano’ has a tale full of scams even when it lands in Gujarat. The 1100 acres of land near Sanand was allotted at Rs900/- per acre while the market rate for the same had been Rs 10,000/-per acre . It accounts for the 33,000cr benefit to the Tata Motors.
Has the bad capitalism driven bureaucracy being a driver for the prosperity in Gujarat today?
The story doesn’t end here there are some more big fish like L&T, Adani Group, Essar Group who have been found under the same pond. A list of 17 cases from which Narendra Modi strictly fears to answer out.
The Hunger Brand
The hunger jersey worn by Narendra Modi has ended it all. He could have been a hero for the masses,but the campaign for New Delhi, makes me feel A believer of Promises rather work. There has been no good reason and neither could it ever exist. It disrupts the essence of democracy and this time no other than the Chief Minister himself.
I rather not vote for Narendra Modi-2014
After “Gandhian” Anna Hazare undertook a fast against corruption last month, it is now Gujarat Chief Minister , Narendra Modi, who has announced a three-day fast of “SADBHAVNA MISSION” to mark “complete peace, unity and harmony” in the state.
Modi decided to undertake the fast after the Supreme Court (SC) recently directed the trial court to decide on Gujarat’s riots case, including his role, on the basis of the report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT). Modi has termed the SC decision a victory. However, the opposition is not impressed with it.
In an open letter to the people of Gujarat, Modi has announced that “the real strength of the country lies in its unity and harmony” and as a Chief Minister, “the pain of each and every citizen of the state was his pain as well“. He also adds that his fast is not against anyone instead it’s a part of “a good-will mission” and will put an end to “vote bank politics”.
Tamil Nadu’ s CM Jayalalithaa praises Modi, saying that “His fast is a good-will gesture and not about political dynamics”. Similar views are also shared by L.K. Advani, the senior BJP leader.
But on the other hand,
It has been argued that this fast of the Gujarat’s CM ,Narendra Modi, in an attempt to shrug off the “communal tag” and portray himself as a secular leader.
Opposition party leaders also termed this act as “gimmickry” , to get rid of the stigma on him.
India a conglomeration of 28 states and 7 union territories with population residing more than 1.210 Billion hearts. With 29 as major languages and 184 as regional ones. We live on a landmass which has seen epics from medieval times and which is home for 330 million god n goddess .
Come on this isn’t something unknown to us. We Indians survive on everything.
We ate the recently Corruption Issues rather the Anna Issue. Not to forget the High Court blasts. The Mumbai blasts. The scam issues. The CWG fraudsters. What not!
Time and again we have new issues to look for so that we forget the old ones. Why don’t we acknowledge the war front soldiers who did make wonders at Kargil
Probably they are not portrayed in public as social icons.
Several blasts shake up the silence and peace of the place but in a way helps to define and strengthen the feeling of Indian. Does anyone care the security breach turmoil which the US government is facing right now on the fortnight of the decade of trashing twin towers? Do we? Certainly with a home of serial blasts in every 6 months or a terror attacks we are so used to it. The first 3 days just after the mishaps people are so furious on the government and the ongoings that sometimes it seems the following neta’s will surely be having a tough time. But thanks to the geographical borders tourists who secretly enter our homes plant few seeds of RDXand privately enjoy the V.V.I.P treatment in the most safest jails of the country!
Any citizen like me could do nothing but write the anguish and feelings for a disastrous end approaching end to our lives one day or the other.
God Forbid Who knows the next twin towers can be our ” India gate” and “The gate way of India”.
Though we make it sure we don’t receive e-mails from any terrorists group, we will self appeal and invite and urge them to come and have a happy stay at our high profile jails.!~
!! Awake !!
let’s Go Carbon Free, Go Sugar Free, Go Cholesterol Free and Let’s Go Anna Free for now.
It’s not about the first, second or even third page, but Anna has reached still the tenth page of the daily journals. Name it and he is there, from newspapers in different languages to the various magazines and blogs like the present one “ANNA ANNA AANA”.
Questions are many, solutions are few. For some, he has instilled the tablets of patriotism for the nation while for others he has recalled the lost Gandhian principles. I often wonder if Gandhi Ji would be sitting in the heaven reading journals comprising all about Anna, would wear a T-shirt with a funky quote on it “I Love Anna” like people do for Salman and Sharukh. The answer has been simple; no person could read better the psychology of a human mind than what these media-men do.
They have bought the Anna ink from the cheap Wholesale market and have further gone endless in printing journals out of it. There has been a stock market that has crashed, British office being attacked in Afghanistan, Dhoni & Co ready to make a 0-4 and a new version of Swift to be launched soon by Maruti Suzuki.
Even the guardian and the economist in London have started mentioning him. Anna has been a hot cup for daily bulletin, but certainly it’s not a fight for nation interest, but describing what is national interest.
Is the voice against the corruption prevalent a matter of national interest or the voice against the elected government?
Certainly, the present day Journalist has inflicted the minds of their reader. They are no more a thinker in the present day society; they have been hard on reading text which may infuse their thinking bulbs.
It’s not wise, to relate this old socialist activist having some affiliations with other political parties, but he has been hard on the present-day Congress from the state-level to the centre. The issue is not in relation with it a political party, but has Anna being trying to relate himself with ‘Anarchism’.
It’s no secret that one single person has shivered the Prime Minister’s Office, no secret he fights for a noble cause, no secret he is doing something which should have been done by someone amongst us. Has he taken the right track or would his sheer arrogance disturb the Indian Society for even worse. Columns have been filled while one-minute bulletin flashes with slogans like, “Fight for Corruption” and “Death of Democracy” but no great has analyzed the impact of Jan LokPal Bill. How good it would be to bring Prime Minister’s Office? Won’t it kill the independence of Judiciary?
Let’s command our brains to think, let’s command our souls to be stir, let’s command our eyes to see. Let’s not follow others blindly, let’s bring our own perception. Candle-lights are not a solution, but just a perception and support towards one form of solution that one attains.
GO Anna Free!!!
