Deconstructing Arvind Kejriwal

Arvind kejriwal being stuck in time warp. His intellect is the product of 80's and 90's social construct... and got intellectual  nourishment from vajiram notes and civil services review kind of study material.... he is addressing the constituency, who applauded the 'mere paas maa hai' kind of dialogues, is endangered species.... he completely out tuned with the gennext of ascending aspiration....

Balgangadhar Tilak

Today is birth anniversary of 'lokmanya balgadhar tilak'... britishers described him as the 'father of Indian unrest'... he was the first Mass mobiliser in true sense who made the congress a efficacious apparatus... previously congress use to be instrument of imperial power dominated chiefly by the educated elites ..... till 1907 congress did not have public membership.... tilak politicised the ordinary indians and use agitation, stir, picketing and religious ceremony as a instrument of mobilisation.... ....... Tilak deeply opposed the British education system that ignored and defamed India's culture, history and values, defying and disgracing the India culture. Just becoz of his ideological proximity to hindutva.. he was dumped by the congress...

Shiva

At Mahakaal ujjain.... for me shiva is not 'king of meluha' or 'Kochaddiyan' or a 'Time bender'....... for me he is premordial god who dwell in charnel ground, smearing cremation ashes, bones and human corpses are his instruments, vasuki-the king of serpents wrapped around his neck....
            I never tried to reconciliate the shiva to my finite intellect or made it compatible to the modern knowledge... for me none of his attribute is obscurant ..... his realisation is assymtotic....

Modern day fundamentalism

English elite reduce the 'Scientific temperament' as snobbery and as a antithesis to Religion. Religion is always seen as superstitious and contaminating. Science is almost seen like a vaccine which one injects into a people to grant them immunity against superstition. There is an illiteracy to science here. It never understood the creativity of the scientist, Jagadish Chandra Bose, who borrowed ideas from the Shakta tradition or Ramanujan, who claimed that the Goddess of Namakkal came to him in a dream and rolled out her tongue and on it was written a theorem. How Shankaracharya's philosophy of advaitism inspired Einstein to propound the mass energy relationship.
Our cultural practices are deal with condescending attitude. 'Dehati' is synomomous with backwardness. Mission of our intellectual is to modernise india. Unfortunately in the name of modernism we homogenized our people.
 Think of diversity. The 50,000 varieties of rice cannot be preserved merely by in situ scientific techniques. Mere science cannot save them but a science combined with myth, song, religion, festival, language can protect our diversity. Even our constitution recognise few languages.... our dialects are orphan.....
