Na to naaquus se hai aur na asnaam se hai

Hind ki garmi-e-hungama tere naam se hai    

(Neither because of conch nor by its idols
The excitement and love thriving in India is by your name)
Teri taalim hui nazr-e-khurafaat-e-firang

Barhaman ko ye gila gardish-e-ayyam se hai

(Your teachings have been destroyed by the evil plans of the English
Brahmin is still blaming it over the changing times)

@khabrimishra #MohanBhagwat bats for women’s empowerment at #Vijayadashami rally: “Regarding women as 'mother of the universe' is fine, but that does not mean we lock them in prayer house or treat them as second-class members in family and shut them in the house," he said. @ShoumojitB reports
@khabrimishra @ShoumojitB "We need to drop such extremes of behaviour and empower women with freedom of action and decision-making in both public and domestic spheres," says #mohanbhagwat at #Nagpur rally. #Dussehra #Vijayadashami

क्या #दशहरा के दिन सचमें रावणवध हुआ था?

सामान्यजनो की यह मान्यता है की श्रीरामने #Dussehra के दिन #Ravana का वध किया था। इसी लिए आज के दिन #रावणदहन भी किया जाता है।

लेकिन हमारे कोई भी शास्त्रमें यह नहीं लिखा की रावणवध दशहरा को हुआ था। दशहरा तो छोडो, उसके आसपास भी नहीं हुआ था। Image
क्रिष्किन्धाकाण्ड सर्ग २६

श्रीराम सुग्रीव को कह रहे है की कार्तिकमास आने के बाद रावणवध के लिए प्रयत्न करना। तब तक तुम महलमें रहकर आनन्द करो।

दशहरा अश्विनमासमें आता है। कार्तिकमास तक तो श्रीराम क्रिष्किन्धामें ही थे। तो उन्होने दशहरे को रावणवध कैसे कर दिया? Image
यह सर्ग २७ के श्लोक है। जहाँ पर श्रीराम सुग्रीव से स्पष्ट कह रहे है की वह चतुर्मास के समय तक पर्वत पर निवास करेगे। चारमास समाप्त होने के बाद ही वह रावणवध के लिए प्रयत्न करेगे। ImageImageImage

Public celebrations of #Navratri in #Maharashtra began in 1926 & are linked to reformers Prabodhankar Keshav Sitaram Thackeray, Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar & Rao Bahadur S.K. Bole. This was a form of counter-culture against #Ganeshutsav, which was then dominated by #Brahmins
Incidentally, #Ganeshutsav was popularised by #LokmanyaTilak in the backdrop of the Hindu-Muslim riots in 1893-94. It soon replaced #Muharram, which was then the most popular festival in the Bombay Presidency, with massive participation from Hindus
The #Ganeshutsav at #Dadar in #Mumbai, saw donations being collected from people across castes. However, the organising committee was dominated by Brahmins, who kept other groups away from it. The singers and religious orators were also Brahmins. In short, they ran the show.

Why do we as individuals, as a community, as a nation, as a world revel in maligning the rich and famous.
Why does a part of the collective, a part within each of us, have this need to put someone down.

#StopMaligning #StoptheShaming 
#StopJudging #AryanKhan #ShahRukhKhan #SRK
Esp. when there's an opportunity for the slander of someone successful, or their family; especially if they have made it on their own terms as an 'outsider'. Worse still, if they don't toe the line and are not 'politically correct'. And God help them if they happen to be Muslim.
We grudge the rich their riches, the privileged their privileges, the famous their fame because of our own severe LACK or Scarcity Consciousness that we don't want to take ownership of. "How dare THEY have it all. It's not fair."

జమ్మిచెట్టుకి🌿 ఎందుకంత ప్రాధాన్యత

దసరా సంబరాలు చివరిరోజుకి చేరుకోగానే అందరికీ గుర్తుకువచ్చేది జమ్మిచెట్టు. దసరా సాయంత్రం వేళ జమ్మికొట్టి, ఆ చెట్టు ఆకులను బంగారంగా భావిస్తూ పెద్దల చేతిలో పెట్టి ఆశీస్సులు తీసుకుంటారు
#జమ్మిచెట్టు 🌿
#Jammi #Dussehra
#HappyDussehra #VijayaDashami
బంగారంగా భావిస్తూ పెద్దల చేతిలో పెట్టి ఆశీస్సులు తీసుకుంటారు. చెట్లని దైవంగా పూజించి కొలుచుకోవడం హైందవ సంస్కృతిలో తరచూ కనిపించేదే! కానీ ఈ దసరా రోజుకీ జమ్మి చెట్టుకీ మధ్య అనుబంధం ఏమిటి అన్న ప్రశ్నకు చాలా సమాధానాలే కనిపిస్తాయి.
కాస్త జమ్మి గురించి...
జమ్మి భారతీయులకు కొత్తేమీ కాదు. ఇంకా చెప్పాలంటే భారత ఉపఖండంలోనే ఈ వృక్షం ఉద్భవించిందన్నది శాస్త్రవేత్తల అభిప్రాయం. అందుకనే రుగ్వేదకాలం నుంచే జమ్మి ప్రస్తావన కనిపిస్తుంది. అప్పట్లో ఈ చెట్టుని అగ్నిని పుట్టించే సాధనంగా వాడేవారు.

Here are some facts about the #Amritsar train tragedy:
1. A five foot wall of the railways separates the railway tracks and the empty plot where #dussehra was celebrated.
2. People were watching the Ravana burning from the tracks which are on a height to get a better view.
3. The jora phatak or twin railway crossing is about 400 feet away from the spot where people were standing on the tracks to watch Dussehra.
4. The railway crossing gates were closed and the crossing was manned.
5. Dussehra celebrations were NOT held at this spot last year.
6. The event was organised by Saurabh Mithu Madaan, the son of a Congress municipal corporator. Mithu Madaan is of the Navjot Singh Sidhu group in the Amritsar Municipal Corporation.
