Sadar Pranam to Justice Nariman & Saran .I’m afraid that your encouragement towards erasing Sanskrit Prayer frm #KendriyaVidyalaya by calling it communal is step towards erasing INDIA. 👇🏼 I xpln how cc @RanjanGogoiCJI @Sanjay_Dixit @Shubhrastha @RituRathaur @ShefVaidya @sankrant
2/n I need to take you through a journey.
The first article of the Constitution of India states that "India, that is Bharat, shall be a union of states," implicitly codifying "India" and "Bharat" as equally official short names for the Republic of India.
3/n Now, you should now go into the root of word Bhārata.

The name Bhārata or Bhārata-varṣa is derived from the name of either Dushyanta's son Bharata or Rishabha's son Bharata.

Let’s read further👇🏼
4/n The designation Bhārata appears in the official Sanskrit name of the country,Bhārata Gaṇarājya.The name is derived from the Puranas,which refer to the land that comprises India as Bhāratavarṣa(country of Bharata) & uses this term to distinguish it from other continents.
5/n The Sanskrit word bhārata is a vṛddhi derivation of Bharata, which was originally an epithet of Agni. The term is a verbal noun of the Sanskrit root bhr-, "to bear/to carry", with a literal meaning of to be maintained (of fire).
6/n The root bhr is cognate with the English verb to bear and Latin ferō. This term also means "one who is engaged in search for knowledge". Barato, the Esperanto name for India, is also a derivation of Bhārata.
7/n The Reference for 4/n comes from below:

ऋषभो मरुदेव्याश्च ऋषभात भरतो भवेत्
भरताद भारतं वर्षं, भरतात सुमतिस्त्वभूत्
Rishabha was born to Marudevi, Bharata was born to Rishabha,
Bharatavarsha (India) arose from Bharata and Sumati arose from Bharata.
-Vishnu Purana (2,1,31)
8/n ततश्च भारतं वर्षमेतल्लोकेषुगीयते
भरताय यत: पित्रा दत्तं प्रतिष्ठिता वनम
This country is known as Bharatavarsha since the times the father entrusted the kingdom to the son Bharata and he himself went to the forest for ascetic practices.
-Vishnu Purana (2,1,32)
9/n
उत्तरं यत्समुद्रस्य हिमाद्रेश्चैव दक्षिणम् ।
वर्षं तद् भारतं नाम भारती यत्र संततिः ।।
"The country (varṣam) that lies north of the ocean and south of the snowy mountains is called Bhāratam; there dwell the descendants of Bharata."
-Vishnu Purana (45,75)
10/n Bharatas were a tribe mentioned in the Rigveda, especially in Mandala 3 attributed to the Bharata sage Vishvamitra.

Mandala 7 (7.18 onwards.) mentions the Bharatas as taking part in the Battle of the Ten Kings.
11/n Bharata Khanda is a term used in various scriptures including the Vedas, Mahabharata, Ramayana & the Puranas to describe the Subcontinent.

Now coming to the #KendriyaVidyalaya prayer which seems communal to you & you entertained the petition. Let’s discuss.
12/n
ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।,
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ।,
मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।,
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad (1.3.28.)

Translation👇🏼
13/n
Om, from falsehood lead me to truth,
From darkness lead me to the light,
From death lead me to immortality,
Om peace peace peace
(Peace in three states of life- physical mental spiritual)

Now read my arguments👇🏼
14/n Arg 1:
I’m really confused how the ‘desire to move towards truth & knowledge’ is a communal motive? In case you see it as communal motive, then do other communities don’t aspire for truth & knowledge?

I thought every ‘Panth’ aspire for same. Isn’t it?
15/n Often, knowledgable people like you argue that even Islam, Christianity etc teach but to aspire for knowledge.

Is it only because it’s a Shloka written in Sanskrit on land of ‘Bharata’?

Interestingly, most of daily use words including @RanjanGogoiCJI has Sanskrit root.
16/n Arg 2:
Do you think that you are wiser than those who made Constitution that they used ‘Bharata’ as official name for India (2/n -11/n) despite its origin from Rig Veda & Various Puranas?

They didn’t even consider name ‘Hindustan’ the name given by Foreigners.
17/n So if in case your logic to put a halt to ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय.. is justified then even Bharata isn’t s correct name as 42nd amendment made our country ‘Secular’. Isn’t?

It’s interesting that you subscribe more to Indira G’s constitutional view than Ambedkar’s or KM Munshi’s.
18/n If your idea to erase the prayer is correct then even national anthem is communal as it addresses country as ‘Bharata: A name from Puranas’.

Remember, ‘Bharata bhagya vidhata...’ in the National Anthem?
19/n Arg 3:
Do you think that those who won’t chant the shloka will be more for ‘Nation State’ than those army tigers who have war cries from Sanatana Dharma Scriptures & praising related Gods (refer images)?
20/n Do you think that a Hindu basher like @kavita_krishnan etc are doing more service to the nation-state that a ‘fauji’ from Bihar Regiment who goes in war crying praise to ‘Bajrangbali?’ Di you know even a Muslim Fauji from Bihar regiment cries the same?
21/n Then genuine question comes whether a person like Kavita Krishnan who sees Upanishad as communal, supports and is probably #UrbanNaxal be role model for school students of s Fauji who goes on war crying ‘Jwala Mata Ki Jai’?

Is it tough to respond ‘Manniya Nyayadhish?’
22/n Arg 3:
Almost premiere institution including Indian Navy, IAF, IITs, IIMs have motos from Upanishads & Sanatana Dharma scriptures so do you auggeat that all these organisations serve communal ideologies & have non-scientific attitude (as petitioner claims)?
23/n Historically, I don’t think there is any ‘Mai ka Laal’ who has proved more worth to Nation than alumni of these institutions. Definitely not the petitioner & others who are supporting the petition? If so can anyone give me an instance to prove so?
24/n Arg 4:
We definitely can’t have distinct logics for same subject under different circumstance based on own comfort. So what’s your proposal for every word with Sanskrit origin? Are you going to rename yourself & everyone else with Sanskrit name?
25/n Is article one of the Constitution to going to be amended now? I mean is larger picture towards removing Bharata as one of the Official name of India? There are larger problems which I explain in 26/n onwards.
26/n Threat:
Now I want to speak a bit about threat that we posses because of the kind of step.

Vedas & other Scriptures attributed to Santana Dharma were conceived lot before the idea of Religion was thought of.
27/n Unfortunately or fortunately (perspective matters), they triggered in the very land of Bharata which legally we often call ‘India’ as Nation State. They speak but of only about a Civilisation: The Bharata or ‘The Hindu Civilisation’ (politically incorrect but true).
28/n They are the only record of our civilisation that is older than 10,000 years or more. It’s interestingly a threat that identity of our civilisation is being tagged as communal on par of ‘Abrahmic Religions’.
29/n So are we on path of appeasement? The idea of challenge the Sanskrit Prayer May just be first step towards annihilation of civilisation. It won’t be too late when we may head towards changing various attributes including bearing Sanskrit Identity.
30/n How will we preserve our civilisation if it’s characters aren’t preserved? The Greek, Roman & many others have perished, the steps are indicating similar fate to the ‘Bharatiya’ of ‘Hindu’ Civilisation. So is it a step towards de-Indicisation?
31/n If we start getting rid of Sanskritic identity then not only we will lose name & prayers but then we will also need to get rid of various science works including smallest things like Dry Cell. Dry Cell concept was discovered by Rishi Agastya. Read 👇🏼
32/n We must stop this advancement towards Sanskrit Phobia. As it is leading us only towards identity crisis. We are hell bent to demonise our own identity to appease minorities. It must be brought to halt.
33/n We must not forget that the existence of those whom we look to appease occurred because of the identity that you look to perish. We accommodated Islam, Christianity and more when they were playing ‘Cruades’ & ‘Jihad’.
34/n How naive & horrible an idea can be eradicate someone who is reason for the existence of ‘Subjects’ we look to appease?

We must rise to save Our Civilisation which is cause of other’s existence.
N/n In the thread above (34 tweets) I tried to explain how the idea to erase Sanskrit Prayer & support by SC shall lead to annihilation of ‘Bhartiya’ Civilisation. Pl share & RT to support the movement. 👆🏼

31/n-1 This is an addendum to tweet 31/n where I missed to paste the link for the how Dry Cell is a Hindu Civilisation’s Discovery. Please find it here
