Hindu terror – an oxymoron

I wonder the desperation of #congress to bring down the #Hindu faith to other level of astrocities. Hence a lady #SadhviPragya gets framed to prove that point and she spends nine odd years in #jail suffering the torture not suppose to be done to a woman. Luckily she didn’t die and survived #mental trauma of #abuse, raped, and endless ways of breaking her confidence down.

Now she is contesting from the same city against the same #congress politician who coined the world Hindu terror. Destiny gives one chance to everyone.

But I feel sorry for the #officers, politician involved in framing a woman as I wonder if they are truly men or hijdas who couldn’t dare a man to frame.

Even if she was remotely involved she has suffered her share of pain for 9 years. I remembered the time when she was arrested and also that no politician or a guru helped her. I had felt bad that she was left alone. But today she has received something in return for maintaining her dignity and the dignity of hindu dharma and saffron clan- bhagwa.

Let’s all vote for this amazingly good party back to power. Vote for bjp and support #NDA to come back to power.

Congress looting India endlessly

We thought British left hence looting of India is over. No, it’s not. We are getting looted by INC India endlessly, earlier IndiraGandhi took treasures of Jaipur to Switzerland and now Sonia is taking it to Italy. I wonder why are we working? So that we fill her pockets and her family back in Italy can live in enormous luxury. This is possible only because we remained uneducated, ignorant and disconnected from the politics. I seriously urge the voters to think about Such things before voting.

It makes no sense to even live if we are just going to get robbed by this family. The wealth accumulated by them is nothing but our hard-earned money which is supposed to be used for development and infrastructure by the #government.

The time has come to get united and vote for only one party and let them stay in power for atleast two decades so that we can see some progress for coming generations. We have mistakenly given 60 years to congress and have got nothing in return. Let’s give atleast 2 decades to BJP and see india shining worldwide.

Why bjp should invite other party leaders to BJP

#BJP needs to expand the horizon of leaders they can groom for next #generations. It should start with leaders from other parties who are relatively good but in the wrong parties. These #hindu politician can add a lot of value to the party and can become #BJP’s strength.

#Rahul’s entry in #Wayanad proves that he is more sure of peaceful’s vote than #Hindus. It is also a scary fact that congress is aware of the growing number of #peacefuls in india which can become their future voters. This is something which we so called #urban populace don’t want to accept and still want to stay under the umbrella of #secularism. But they don’t know the moment peacefuls grow in number they will even convert #congress leaders. Ideally no hindu leader should be in opposition, it’s time to convince every one of them why we need to stay united and be one force. Let this #election of #2019 be the beginning of this new equations.

Let’s see the work done by #NDA govt in last five years. #Phirekbarmodisarkar #amitshah Narendra Modi #maibhichaukidar #bjpfor2019 #nriformodi

Freebies as election campaign

I strongly want to condemn the freebies of rupees and other stuffs as election campaign strategy. These politician don’t pay from their own pockets. Who the hell are they to use public funds to win election by such bribes to people. Why EC or any other body is not raising voice. Is #RahulGandhi going to give 72000 from the money looted by his mother? Surprisingly #Raghuramrajan ex governor of RBI supports such offer. Is he so desperate to get the job back?

The older generation of politicians have created havoc in the country by such offers and meaningless policies. Do they understand that they are in public life to take care of the people and not exploit them to their advantage.

The time has come to create awareness about money spent on voters by the parties and what they promise. It can’t be unrealistic and at the cost of govt funds.

Urban voters

The time has come that so called educated, #urban populace take some responsibility of society and go out to #vote. You can’t say that you were busy in the office or house when nation is waiting for your valuable contribution this election.

Also check whom to vote. A smaller thief is better than a hardcore terrorists who have looted india through generations. If you can’t see good projects done by #bjp it’s ok but atleast you should know if they don’t come who will gain #power to loot india.

They can’t give excuse of not being aware about political situation. The benefits they enjoy, luxury they enjoy, they enjoy profits in this very society, all the resources are given by this very society. It is really shame that they don’t think it’s they duty to vote.

I have never understood their mindset of being so irresponsible about voting.

Save Sabrimala

After seeing the drama of Kerala police, government and other so called activists, I am feeling bit positive that atleast this issue has united people and made Hindus realize that yes we are in trouble. Our culture is under attack. There is someone somewhere who wants Hindus to be unrest. It’s just that we don’t have a habit of crying victim hence we are attacked even more.

There is an agenda to uproot us so that they achieve intellectual supremacy sort of things in the world. As till Indians are alive, indian knowledge is alive, India as a nation is alive no other race in the world can claim to be knowing anything and everything under the sun.

Currently wherever we are, we are found in every profession, business or companies anywhere in the world. We are flourishing and growing. The country is growing with right leadership. So how to keep us under check and troubled? Social unrest, which is possible by attack on culture, religion and society.

We have seen in the past that Kerala has become the place for any new revolution and have been instrumental in reviving hindu dharma time and again. Many spiritual gurus hail from the same state mainly Shankaracharya ji.

The agitation and uprising of women for Sabrimala has actually given that hope again to people of other states that it’s time we get united and fight for dharma. After all Dharmo rakshit rakshitaha.

Supreme Court of India

Due respect to Supreme Court of India but I can’t understand how and when do they have time and energy to interfere only in hindu traditions and customs. They stay late for criminals and infiltrators, they come up with decision over night for high profile politicians or political agenda. Whereas millions of case pending in the courts across the country. Many trivial issues are waiting for their final call. Many innocent people are locked in the jail due to long waiting time of the courts. Many families have lost everything in family disputes due to lack of proper justice given to them. Thousands of laws need to get repealed as they were formed during british Raj. Many laws and rules need to get final approval to get implemented.

I am sure we don’t lack number of judges and lawyers. We have good infrastructure in major cities, may be not that good in small cities.

The judiciary needs major revamp and reform which is just not happening due to kind of people sitting on the main bench who don’t want to decide. They just want to get paid hefty salary, attend media conferences and parties of politicians.

So what exactly Supreme Court or any other court doing in india.

My last take on this US visit

My last take on this US visit:

The country is truly great when it comes to giving business opportunities, innovations, technology, lifestyle luxuries and professionalism in work places. As a young teen even I had an American dream as that is what We grew up thinking that US is the land of opportunities and new innovations will save the humanity.

My this visit was all about judging and evaluating on how much they have contributed to humanity, environment, cultural values and health of the people. I am sorry to share that it’s a failed society. I met so many indian families living there who have no interest in inculcating our culture to their kids. For them it’s all about jobs, houses, cars, luxuries, holidays, security of their future. There is no space for cultural values, our identity, religion or human touch. And no Indian holidays too. Though also found young NRIs who are born in US but working to spread the dharma. Still Indians are the second richest race here, of course through hard work and values we have in work places. But they have failed to pass on the same to their kids as they are fully American and lost.

I also found that they overlive- which means exploiting natural resources like anything. Every household has things which next three generations can use but they still want to buy more. As lifestyle and happiness is all about shopping and shopping.

I always loved NewYork and still love it for the buzz it has but the Manhattan has become more about shopping and eating than anything else.

It is flooded with very mediocre Chinese products which no country is able to avoid. The elite ness and chivalry of people have disappeared which I had felt 15 yrs back. And which actually made America great in true sense. The Society is flooded with all sorts of piled-on refugees who want everything free from govt.

wonder how they will manage the country in future.

My take on World Hindu Congress in Chicago

My take on world Hindu Congress:

Apart from all the arrangements, speakers and efforts main thing is the content of every session has improved. I had attended first one in Delhi as well. Which was a good beginning. But this time it was even better. The final destination of all the deliberation is that it has to reach PMO office and should get converted into policy and implemented in each region.

That will encourage the Organisers and volunteers to work even better. Many speakers backed out because of the threat of the so called minorities who think it is their right to interfere in every attempt made to bring hindu communities together. Do Hindus interfere in their affairs?

Also why anyone has to question VP weather he should attend such event or not. I saw many comments about that he shouldn’t attend it. Let’s all make this effort to bring the society together and march towards only one goal.

What should be called Development

It’s time indian government goes to Italy and understand how Rome is designed, how they have preserved the thousand years old monuments, there are hundreds of historical sites which are maintained so well. We may need to do the same in case of all our religious places all across india. The beauty of these small towns lies in their small lanes, small but very ancient temples, small shops which employs thousands of people, a lifestyle which is very unique to that place.

It’s time we look into development of religious small towns in different style, format, approach and execution. Currently what is going on Kashi is extremely painful.

Development doesn’t mean the concrete buildings, concrete roads and facilities which we don’t need most of the time.

Unfortunately power of consumerism is so strong in today’s economy that we want to beautify everything for no reason.

The current development principles are two edged sword. We loose our identity on the name of development and subscribing to the American way of lifestyle.

It’s also time to think of eco friendly villages and towns which work on our traditional principles of saving the environment. This will save hundreds of species, animals, environment and health of the people.

Participated in a conference by JITO

It is quite inspiring to see a community networking on the basis of belief system. Jain international trade conference has initiated a new chapter of the team in Kenya.

It is definitely a fruitful initiative for Jain community to come together, collaborate, network, educate and flourish the society.

We participated as Kenya Vegetarian Club as we follow the principle of non-violence and mercy towards animal.

Brahma Kumari – a course on meditation

I recently completed a meditation course offered by Brahma Kumari center. It was a wonderful experience to go through the meditation process.

It really helped to differentiate between Bhakti, meditation, penance and gyan Marg. My reasons of going through various processes is to understand their impact on our mind and how it can bring change within us. Yes I found this to be really calming and relaxing. I guess that is what people want in today’s stressful life.

Brahma kumari has 9000 centers across the world. Presence in more than 100 countries. Silent but dedicated work towards humanity.

The theory is bit different from our scriptures but still have adapted a lot from Hindu belief system. Though they don’t identify themselves as religious organisation. It is more of a spiritual center to uplift our soul and cleanse our karma.

Is number of rapes really growing in India?

There is a growing outcry for one particular rape happened in india which is not even proved to be rape. But every media wants to take a pie out of it. I still have to find someone who will analysis the reasons behind this growing number.

Let me first clarify that though being such huge country, India’s number in violence against women is at much lower end compare to any so called developed countries. Our cultural heritage is still working and we are still far better than the western world.

So what’s the reason behind this growing number. First is availability of pornography even in small villages through internet and mobile. This unusual exposure of such movies made in Hollywood definitely works on psychi of the people, as such our women in small villages are not easily visible and that makes a man desperate.

It’s an urge to spiritual gurus to talk about it openly when you go to smaller towns and villages.

Second is Bollywood, earlier our actresses used to dance for one particular lover, many times in the rain too. But off lately they have started dancing for hundreds of men enticing them and inviting them, mostly men of smaller towns are shown on the screen. What do u expect from a drunk and an illiterate man after watching all these.

Third is belief of particular class of people who think women are only to produce kids, they don’t have soul and they can women abuse however they want to. It is believed to be most dangerous than anything else. As they will justify any crimes on the name of belief system.

I always find it quite surprising when western media talks about rape cases in India. There universities are the biggest center of atrocities against women. It is just they know how to hide it from the world and their media is fully controlled by corporate and politicians. That is where we are heading too.

It’s also time that we question the integrity of the media as they have become mere instruments of other forces to modify everything according to the external forces’ agenda. It’s very naive of us to believe whatever they say. Thanks to internet and social media for revealing many truths which were hidden for so many years. But eventually they will also be fully controlled and manipulated by corporate.

Celebrating Akshay tritiya

It’s Akshay tritiya today. Astrologically it is one of the best days to improve your good luck rapidly and remove hurdles from current any outstanding matter:

It’s a special occasion that happens once every year whereby the Sun and the moon are in exalted positions, at the peak of their astrological power, which usually happens in the month of late April to early May.

It is called “Akshaya Tritiya” the eagerly awaited day which multiplies your prosperity. It is also known as Akha Teej, is one of the most auspicious days .

Derived from the Sanskrit word Akshaya, which means never diminishing,

imperishable, and eternal, the day is believed to bring in good luck and success, of which every moment is auspicious. It is believed that sacred deeds (Punya Karya) performed on this day never go unnoticed and that starting a new venture or investing in valuables doesn’t end without fruitful rewards. Hence the benefits of doing any jaap (chanting) and  charity on this day never diminish and remain with the person forever.

Do the following as much as you can and whatever is applicable to you….

1.Sign any important papers.The day is considered auspicious for starting new ventures. It’s said that any venture initiated on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya will continue to grow and bring prosperity.

2. This applies to any regiment big or small. Important beginnings like starting a spiritual sadhana, setting up a new business, starting construction for a project, buying property, gold or any jewellary, fixing dates of any event or any kind of event. Making down payment any higher purchase.

3. Making resolutions or positive commitments.

4. Good to begin any exercise regime or walking/jogging.

5. Renewal of any contracts or agreements etc.

6.Today clean your wallet and remove unwanted visiting cards to prevent yourself from carrying another’s superfluous burdening energy around with you.

7. Ensure your wallet is not empty tomorrow. Keep two grains of rice in your wallet ( rice is associated with prosperity ).

8. If you have a safe in the house try to make it neat and tidy. Try to add some new valuables and pinch of rice in it.

9. One should be happy and loving  with your near and dear ones. If possible try to eat a vegetarian meal together with your family.

10. If you are in any positive relationship i.e business or personal,  then show the partner(s) gratitude and appreciation. Verbalize your commitment for a long enduring journey together with the partner(s) .

11. Write in a personal golden book, whatever  wishes you desire to materialise eg. I am reducing weight;  my turnover is increasing in business;  I  am happy in married life etc.

12.The benfits of taking a bath in the Ganga river, doing Vishnu pooja or any prayers, doing charity on this day ,never diminish and they prove fruitful. If not possible this then I suggest sprinkle few drops of Holy water or Ganges water over your head tomorrow .

13.If Lakshmi pooja is done on this day, it brings prosperity.

14.Feeding the poor on this day is considered auspicious.

15. Good day to start any sadhana or vrat, prayer etc.

Oceans filled with plastics

An unfortunate story of oceans. We have abused it like anything. Those who swear by modern science, can u pls give one example of modern innovation which has no ill effect on nature or our health. One example will suffice. I can fill thousands of pages with the side effects every modern amenity which we crave for and run after.

Imagine your life living in a clean environment, clean water and healthy food. Have we evolved? Or gone worse than where we were few hundred years back.

The crass materialistic desire which is named as progress has killed so many millions of species on the earth and we still dream of having better world.

Please wake up.

Adapt a simple, minimalistic and Indian traditional lifestyle. As that is the only savior on the earth.
