Are Brahmins supposed to engage only in prayers preside over religious ceremonies & live on alms?

Time to acknowledge role of #Brahmins in building & preserving #Hindu society!

Dwellers of Saraswati banks, the Saraswat Brahmins are successors of Parshurama, the Brahmin warrior.
Parshurama led 21 campaigns against tyrant Karityavir Arjun of Haiya tribe whose capital was in Mahishmati (Maheshwar, M.P)
Parshurama conquered his lands & distributed them to Rishi Kashyap & his Brahmin warriors. These Mahipals(land owners) became Mohyals, the warrior Brahmins.
Dronacharya, a poor Brahmin came to Parshurama after he had given away all the land so Parshurama taught him art of war.
Dronacharya established an ashram across Shivalik ranges on banks of river Tons,where he taught Royal Princes.
The Dera of Drona, came to be called Dehradun.

The demand for #MarathaReservation dates back to the 1980s. #MarathaUnFound
The 1st major agitations were initiated in 97 by organisations like #MarathaMahasangh & the #MarathaSevaSangh. According to the Maratha Seva Sangh, the #Marathas are essentially #Kunbis, a nomenclature given to agrarian communities that include Gujarat’s #Patidars #MarathaUnFound
Mandal Commission report of 1990, the National Commission for Backward Classes report of 2000 & the 2008 State Backward Classes Commission report pointed out that the #Maratha can't be considered as educationally or socially backward #MarathaUnFound

The first contribution of Brahmins to the #Hindu National Pride was this #Brahmin ‘s reply to the 1st known foreign invaders, the Greeks(they called him ‘Dandamis’) on being threatened to be beheaded on his refusal to meet Alexander.

“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply

Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻

1/15 In today's thread I would like to focus on the grand Dravidian deceit on Tamil culture and Civilisation with the agenda to hide the Hindu identity of Tamil Nadu! Its about #Keeladi #Keezadi #Excavations
2. .How many of us do really know that #Keeladi , a recent panchayat, is originally identified as a part of another adjacent village #Kondhagai? This beautiful village has 2 temples. Archaeologists knew about this village and its ancient history for a very long time.
3. #Pandian King’s stone inscriptions of 12CE has been excavated which was gifted to #Brahmins as Kunthidevi Chaturvedi Mangalam. Adjacent to this is another urban settlement called Kunthadevi Chaturvedi Mangalam.
