Our ancestors used a complex system to stratify our society, using:

-varna
-kula
-jati
-vruthi
-shreni
-gotra
-pravara
-vamsha
-jana
-karma
-guna
-janma

Why are Hindu intellectuals ignoring this by allowing bashing of our proven model to be equated to Euro. caste models. 1/n
We often discredit age old varna system for not staying united, when ironically that same system maintained unity for ages.

As individualist, varna structure offered personal space as required while assuring communal strength of social class. 2/n
It is not the system which worked for 10K+ yrs that is faulty, but practitioners of the system under the influence of external forces that has harmed it.

Ironically, proponents of 'uniform groups' are more closed and less accommodative than diverse & stratified H society. 3/n

Everyone is busy criticising #Taliban and simping #Afghanistan while scaremongering Hindus of India about #Taliban.

For 50 years, Afghanistan has swung from coups to conflicts. In 1973 an Afghan general ousted the king and declared himself president. Five years later, Afghan communists assassinated him and seized power.The Soviet Union invaded the next year to prop up the unpopular communists.
This sparked a decade-long guerrilla war. The U.S. funneled billions of dollars via Pakistan to anti-Soviet mujahideen fighters from across the Islamic world—including the Saudi jihadist Osama bin Laden—and they eventually forced the Soviets to withdraw.

#SardarUdhamSingh
The HISTORY of a warrior who waited 21 years to take revenge for JallianwalaBagh Massacre.
Before Reading Further, Let Me 1st Introduce, How Gandhi & Nehru Responded when Udham Singh took revenge...
Although almost all Bharatiyas
regarded Singh's actions as a response to some brutal aspects of British colonial rule, officially, his actions were deplored and condemned in India, with Gandhi referring to Singh's actions as "an act of insanity", stating: "The outrage has caused me deep pain. I regard it as
an act of insanity. I hope this will not be allowed to affect political judgement.".
Nehru wrote in The National Herald, "The assassination is regretted but it is earnestly hoped that it will not have far-reaching repercussions on the political future of India."

in action during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947.
Pakistani forces had announced a sum of Rs 50,000 as a prize for his head. Unaffected by praise and congratulations, Usman continued to sleep on a mat laid on the floor as he had vowed that he would not sleep on a bed till he

Bharatiya in the viceroy’s council made his way back to Madras after his resignation, it was an ovation all the way, the like of which had never been seen before in India. There were feasts and entertainments wherever the train stopped and crackers were fired under the wheels
of the railway, so much so that there was one continuous firing for hours.”
126 Years back, he was the Congress President and till date, the only Malayali who held the reins of Congress.

We all have heard that #JyotiBasu lost the chance of becoming PM & I Thank God For That.
Just after the 1962 war, Jyoti Basu proclaimed publicly at a rally that “China cannot be the aggressor.”
This mean character served as Chief Minister for 23 years 4 months and 17 days from
1977 to 2000.
On his birthday, let me introduce to his killings of industry & people.
Much before they came to power in 1977, the CPI-M started experimenting with murder as a political instrument way back in 1970 when they murdered 2 important Congress workers belonging to the
Sain family of Burdwan. The level of bestiality that they stooped down to was evident by the fact that
they made the mother of the two Sain brothers eat rice drenched with the blood of her dead sons. As a result the mother lost her mental balance from which she could not recover

The Truth Behind #SuitBootKiSarkar.

On the occasion of death anniversary of #DhirubhaiAmbani, let us read how Indira & Co helped a clerk of Aden to become Polyster Prince of India or in other words Evolution of SuitBootKiSarkar with the help of Congress & Pranab Mukherjee.
When Congress was split into two, most big business of those days had sided with Congress (O) and Indira wanted her own moneybags whom she could trust and this was possible in the licence-permit raj where entrepreneurship could be engineered. A number of businessmen grew up
thanks to her largesse among them Dhirubhai Ambani, Kapal Mehra of Orkay.
DBA was a shrewd businessman but the initial help he got made Dhirubhai realise the power of the government. It could make or break business & with the sarkar on your side you could always be on the make.

“Bharat is in need of Bomb and Bomb Alone”.

Do you know who said this?
It was #SwamiVivekananda.
While most of us see Swami Vivekananda as a Sanyasi who spread Sanatana Dharma to the world, very few know his contribution for freedom struggle.
The Message,
“Rise, Awake & Stop Not Till The Goal Is Reached” was given to kick out British from Bharat.
UNFORTUNATELY Ramakrishna Matt, Swami Vivekananda websites have fallen into the hands of FAKE SECULARISM & APPEASEMENT of Gandhi Nehru.
There are loads of articles which propagates how
Gandhi was inspired by Swami Vivekananda whereas the truth is Swami inspired 1000s of revolutionaries to take Bombs & Guns to fight against British Oppression.

Veergatha of Kanhoji Angre – The Undisputed and Undefeated Sea Hawk.

Remembering #KanhojiAngre, the Admiral of Maratha Navy who remained undefeated till his last breath.

In the 1700s, one man antagonized the European powers, and insisted on the Maratha Empire’s rights to "SAMUDRATLA SHIVAJI" Kanhoji Angre
taxation and sovereignty over Maharashtra’s coast. He was Kanhoji Angre, the head of the Maratha navy.
The first important naval figure in modern Bharat, Angre managed to maintain an unquestionable hold over a heavily disputed stretch of coastline throughout the early decades
of the 18th century. At its peak in 1729, Angre’s Maratha fleet held a mere 80 ships, many of them little more than overgrown fishing boats engineered by the local kolis (fisher folk) who populated his domain. Yet with the combination of that modest fleet and an unsurpassed

The basic story of Master Tara Singh’s life was marked by constant struggles, and failures. At the time of the creation of the unilingual state of Punjab in 1966, a fight for which Master Tara Singh had suffered
much, he had to face the ignominy of being known as a turn-coat, compromiser and worse, someone who did not stand by his promises.

In his last message as a free person Dr Mookerjee told Vajpayee, his private secretary and others to tell the country that he had at last entered the state of Jammu and Kashmir, though as a prisoner, and to carry on his work in his absence.
Apparently, when Dr Mookerjee had made
known his intention to visit Jammu, Sucheta Kripalani paid him a visit and told him, that you won’t go, Nehru will not allow you to return safe from there. Dr Mookerjee told Sucheta, ‘I have no personal enmity against Nehru, I am working for a cause, why should he have any
vendetta for me?’ Then Sucheta told Dr Mookerjee, ‘You don’t know Nehru, I know Nehru, he looks upon you as his main rival and he will try to remove you from the field if he can and he is capable of anything.’

Here Is Another Devastating History Which No Nehruvian Distorian Like To Tell.
Read On…..
Usually for Muslims, rioting is god sent boon because they can rape, kill & do anything they are passionate about. Above that they are not held accountable & even the Secular Islamists
won't feel ashamed.
On 27 December 1963 a holy relic, which was believed by many to be a #strand_from_the_beard of Prophet Muhammad, was stolen from Hazratbal Shrine (J&K) leading to protests and mass agitation. It was recovered on 4 January 1964 and the thieves were 3 Kashmiri
Muslims.
The details appeared at New York Times, but no Indian Newspaper carried this. WHY?
They included Abdul Rahim Bandey, a custodian of the shrine, and a villager named Abdul Rashid, who was caught while running away after returning the hair to the shrine 10 days later.

This story starts with Indira and ends with Rajiv Gandhi.
This is a long read, but every paragraph will shake you to the core.
On this day in 2001, died an IFS Diplomat of Pakistani origin, close aide of Khan Abdul Gafar Khan & after independence got close to Nehru &
subsequently his daughter Indira Gandhi Alias Maimuna Begum.
In between there is Lust, Deceit, Treachery, Emotion all suppressed by one AMOROUS woman Indira. (Said by Khushwanth Singh).
The HerStory Begins.....
Feroze and Indira were blessed with Rajiv Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi
however, it is believed by theorists that Sanjay is Indira’s son from Mohammad Yunus and not Feroze Gandhi. the more important fact about Sanjay Gandhi, as openly stated in the book ‘The Nehru Dynasty’ by K N Rao, is that this man (Sanjay Gandhi) wasn’t the son of Feroze Khan

That too leaving a lucrative job and happily married life.

Vanchi as he was fondly called was born in 1886, and he had a good job in Madras govt, all this changed when he saw the bias by British towards Bharatiya businessmen.
Vanchi was greatly inspired by Nationalist

V O C was a staunch nationalist and propagated Swarajya, the British were further angered when he entered their steamer business.

“I had undertaken this perilous swim not to gain fame or trophies but to prove once again to the world that Indians are no longer afraid”, said the man who swam into world record books by conquering the English Channel and Palk Straits.

You guys remember #MihirSen, he was the
first Indian to swim across the English Channel in 1958, and also set a world record by swimming in oceans in five continents in 1966. He had famously said, “I wanted to prove to the world that Indians are not afraid.” In 1967, he was awarded the Padma Bhushan.
