Did You Know?

In 1971,Government of India sought the advice of Ford Foundation on agricultural production in India.

They made some ridiculous recommendations without realising the socio-economic conditions of India:

1. Tax on Cattle
(Bizzare, right?)

2. Compulsory confinement of all bulls kept for natural service.
(Who cares for Animal Rights?)

3. Mandatory castration of all young bulls not required for breeding.

4. Compulsary sterilization of surplus cows.

5. Enact law prohibiting open grazing.

This was 1971,mind you. We were dealing with extreme poverty & East Pakistan.

And the Indian Government,instead of seeking advice from Indians, went to the Goras for counsel.

Thank god, this didn't materialize, for India would have slid under further economic depression.

These 'Foundations', with their vested interests have ALWAYS meant harm for India. Their aims are clear,not for nothing are they called 'Breaking India Forces'

This is why reining in all the NGOs getting foreign money from such Organizations is important.

Thank you @AmitShah 🙏🏻

Gender Equality
(Indian Context)

यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवताः
Manusmriti (3.56)
"Where women are respected, there reside the gods."

India remains the only ancient civilization that recognises the relation between gender, body & religion.

While the Women's Emancipation Movement started in 19th Century in Europe, India has since time immemorial evolved gender specific worship traditions.

In Valmiki Ramayana, Sita is portrayed as a lady with a mind of her own & Adbhut Ramayan says she was a fierce warrior goddess. Image
While some complain that patriarchy is unjust as it defines women in a way that neglects their intrinsic value as a complete human being, Indic thought encourages women in equal pursuit of Dharma, Artha, Kama & Moksha, as men.

Women in Vedic era led a life of opportunities. Image
