#Sanatan #Ved #Ramayan #Mahabharat #Puran #Hindu Image
1. Asuras are a class of beings fathered by Kashyapa Rishi and mothered by Diti and Danu. Asuras born of Diti are called Daitya (meaning sons of Diti) and those born of Danu are called Danava (meaning sons of Danu).

2. Asuras are the opposite of Suras. Asura means those without light, those without spiritual knowledge or spiritual inclination. The devanagari letter अ (A) in (A)sura means ‘without’.

Foreign NGO funded "Missionary school in Gomia, #Jharkhand suspends the whole 10th grade class just because a student chanted 'Jai Shri Ram' on school premises"
Now Hindus are not even allowed to Chant "Jai Shri Ram" in their own Motherland.
#missionary #Ramayan Image
In a missionary Bokaro district of Jharkhand, the principal suspended all the students of class X (boys section) for two days for chanting 'Jai Shri Ram'
The parents of students were also called to the school and were reprimanded. Image
These Christian Missionary should be closed in India because they are not educating children they are brainwashing, they are on the mission to convert Hindus into Christianity.

#Ramayan 365
Valmiki says Indrajit used maya to become invisible. He used the divine nagapaash weapon to terribly wound & bind up Shri Ram & Lakshmanji. When they were unconscious, Ravan took Sita mata on his pushpak vimana to show & prove to her that the brothers were dead.

However, the rakshasi Trijata who was assigned to guard Sita mata consoled her by pointing out the signs that the two were still alive.
Being the natural enemy & conqueror of nagas, Garuda was the only one who could save the brothers from the nagapaash weapon that ...

@rahulbh12 Thank you so much. I see the abuse hurled at Bengalis all the time. We bongs accept those hurls and reply with cheap unsubstantiated come backs. I am just trying to do my bit here telling stories about some phenomenal Bengalis who have been the architects of new #India .....(1/2)
@rahulbh12 (2/n) and history has not been kind to them because they didn't flaunt their achievements. It's an open challenge to a billion people on Social Media. Find me one family in the last 800 years like the Mukherjee's of #Uttarpara.
1) #KrittivasOjha - Krittivas #Ramayan..........
@rahulbh12 (3/n) 2) #MaaSharada - w/o #RamkrishnaParamanhsa

The famous epic #Ramayan is written by many authors, original believed to be written by Sage Valmiki. There are over 300 versions in India alone, apart from foreign versions. And there are differences in each. Lets have a look at what's in the #Jain Ramayan.
Ramayan is composed by dozens of Jain authors from all over India not just in Sanskrit, Prakrit & Apabhramsha but also in several vernacular languages such as Kannada, Gujarati & Hindi. The fascinating feature of the #Jain versions of Ramayana is the treatment of Ravan.
Ravan was a very powerful Vidhyadhar (humans who possesed extraordinary powers) king. He was an Ardha Chakri, one who ruled the 3 khands of Bharat kshetra. His capital was at Lanka located on Triktuchal mountain on Rakshas island in Lavan ocean of Jambudweep.

(1/5)80 के दशक में रामायण धारावाहिक को घर-घर तक पहुंचाने वाले रामानंद सागर का जन्म 29 दिसंबर 1917 को ब्रिटिश इंडिया के पंजाब में हुआ था। अब यह जगह पाकिस्तान के लाहौर में है। रामानंद सागर के बचपन का नाम चंद्रमौली चोपड़ा था। रामानंद को उनकी नानी ने पाला और
(2/5)उन्होंने उनका नया नाम रामानंद सागर रखा। परिवार की आर्थिक हालत ठीक नहीं थी, इसलिए रामानंद को कम उम्र से ही काम करना शुरू करना पड़ा। उन्होंने उन दिनों ट्रक क्लीनर और चपरासी की नौकरी भी की है।

1940 में रामानंद सागर पृथ्वीराज कपूर के पृथ्वी थियेटर में असिस्टेंट स्टेज
(3/5)मैनेजर के तौर पर काम करने लगे। यहीं से उन्हें राज कपूर के साथ काम करने का मौका भी मिला। साल 1950 में उन्होंने प्रोडक्शन कंपनी सागर आर्ट कॉरपोरेशन बनाई। रामानंद सागर के कई सीरियल और फिल्में पॉपुलर हुईं लेकिन 'रामायण' की सबसे ज्यादा चर्चा रही।

1/4 Sanatanis are being called to return to the original version of SANATANA.

Terr0rism & Sanatana— a thread!

There used to be a tradition of offering a #BALI to #Kaali or Durga devi before our soldiers went to WAR.

LOGIC: A soldier should not fear BLOOD
2/4 In Devi Mahatmyam: Durga Devi slains Asur called Shumbha and Kaali Devi slains Asur #RAKTABEEJ, who had a boon
that whenever a drop of his blood fell on the ground, a duplicate of him would be born at that spot— pretty much defines WAVES of #terr0rism that INDIA faces today.
3/4 Somewhere in 18th century and late 19th century 2 #Bengalis popularised devotional/Bhakti concept of Kaali.
I’m not sure if this helped us coz Sanatanis were slowly gravitating towards a pacified version of War-Goddesses.

When you lose the vigour to fight, the enemy wins!

Indians hv been psychologically tamed to be believe India CAN NOT #expand it’s territory.

Historians say— we NEVER attacked anyone. Really?

~India is where martial arts like #Kalarippayattu originated, that gave birth to KARATE.
~#Mahabharat & #Ramayan are abt WARS
2/2 ~Afghan to South East Asia, was under control of Indian rulers once.

~Our Devi & Devtas are depicted with weapons.

Our soldiers never PLUNDERed or r@ped. We had DISCIPLINED soldiers!!! Bt that doesn’t mean we did not believe in EXPANDing our territory.
I would love to know opinion of others on this topic.

After the thread on interesting creatures and HP=Krishna, i am back with another lockdown story fr ur kids. Can we imagine a story where Harry Potter universe was influenced by Ramayana too? As i was reading i did find some authors had already worked on this –

#ramayana #hp
but i have seen from my angle. I am also adding some scientific explanations and upakathas and interesting facts for the young inquisitive minds to show how beautiful and glorious our history is.

There are many more than what i hv mentioned.
Hope u like it
IF you think Horcruxes and such cool stuff existed only in HP universe – have some news for you

Raavana = Voldemort??

Both excellent students.
Both had multiple lives – Voldemort broke his soul into 7 horcruxes while Raavana had 10 heads and multiple lives.

The #UttarRamayan, derived from Uttar Kand, containing story of Luv Kush is an addition to the #Valmiki Ramayan at a later date. Valmiki's last chapter is Yuddha Kanda or Lanka Kanda. Source : A comparitive study of Kamba Ramayan and Tulasi Ramayan by S Shankar Raju.
In the first few minutes of #UttarRamayan, #RamanandSagar clarified that pressure from #Valmiki samaj and discussions in Indian Parliament led to his acceptance of public demand to continue the serial with Lav Kush angle. #Ramayana
As such #UttarRamayan on @DDNational should be seen only for entertainment purposes. Do not judge the character of #ShriRam with the events that unfold in the serial. Leave it there.

There is a lot of sync between Ramayan characters and real life Investors. Like -

1) Vibhishan - That type of investor who knows early on, that he is with 'wrong stock' , realizes his mistake and switches quickly (like moving from ADAG to Mukesh group early on)
2) Laxman - 'Hyper active' investor who is ready to sell with a small move (both up and down). Saved by fellow learned investors and ends up making money!

3) Hanuman - Brave investor. Takes ample risk in "asset allocation". Keeps chanting company name at every forum.
4) Indrajit - "Adamant" over his stock despite 'changing circumstances'. Wins initially but loses in long term as he doesn't exit. (like HEG, Graphite).

5) Ram - sticks for long term in good companies like HDFC, Infy, Titan etc. Knows he is going to win. Avoids all noise for yrs

This thread is regarding myths about Meghnad/Indrajit's battle skills and the way he is often described as better than Lakshmana and Bhagwan Ram. I'll be citing Bibek Debroy and Valmiki Ramayana by Gita Press only.

First, let's check Gita Press Ramayan.

1. Indrajit is outright defeated by Angad.
2. Indrajit considered himself beaten
3. He bound Shri Ram and Lakshman by arrows by deceit
4. Outright said that this was by deceit ImageImageImageImage
1&2. Again fights the vanar army by deceit
3&4. Shri Ram and Lakshman were defeated by their own consent to not deny Brahma's boon (Indrajit is also hidden by the same boon) ImageImageImageImage

Pls watch and make sure the youngsters in your families watch this masterpiece created by Shri Chandraprakash Dwivedi ji and featuring him in the character of #Chanakya.
If #Ramayan & #Mahabharat set d cat among d Chrislamocommie pigeons, #Chanakya will give them nightmares coz the prescient issues,the dialogues,the language, the bold & unabashed call to keep the faith in the civilization (Yes, Sanskriti) of this land will drive them insane :-D

The thing with re-telecast of #RamayanOnDDNational is that just about 2 months ago, we finished a re-run of this series through DVD (to introduce the epic to my son). So this re-telecast is a bit too soon for us. So instead, let me narrate a story when it was first telecast. 1/5
#Ramayan was originally telecast between Jan 1987-July 1988. We were then living in Allahabad.

However, our ancestral village is in Gorakhpur, where we went every summer vacation.

The issue in summer of 1987 - how to watch Ramayan in a village with no TV/no electricity? 2/5
So here is what happened in 1987.

A brand new TV set was bought (UPTRON brand).

And electric lines were extend to the village in a record one week time (the local area MLA lived close by. He helped).

As most of us are relishing their old memories of #Ramayan on TV. Let me try to tell something about it's origin. Thread on Ramanand Sagar and his epic Creation 👇
Born in Lahore, named as Chandramouli, one who holds the crescent moon on his forehead, from Lord Shiva. Father Lala Dinanath Chopra was landlords and held the zamindari of ~500 acres of land. Few generation back they were the Nagar Seth of Srinagar), during Maharaja Gulab Singh.
He wrote two plays, Gaura and Kalakar, for Prithvi Theatres in 1948 and was associated with 29 films between 1949 and 1985, either as producer, director or writer. Also, create over 2,000 hours of television content, including the legendary series Ramayan (1987).

Public Demand : We need more tests. More hospitals. More protection equipment. More economic packages.

Government of India : On public demand, we have re-started #Ramayan

Don't get me wrong, I love #Ramayan. And has nothing to do with me being religious or not - the show is a masterpiece. I know many Muslim/Christian/Parsi friends too who love it!

But at times like these it really feels counterproductive to do stuff that doesn't even need doing!!
So this thread has been circulated in BJP IT Cell Whatsapp Group. I am happy some people are making most of this #LockdownWithoutPlan life (More gaali more money.)

To educate them, adding more reasons as to why Ramayana is not what the Public Demand was.
