Hi. Today is Pongal. If you see any genius saying "pOnGaL iS jUsT a HaRvEsT fEsTiVal nOt a HiNdu fEsTiVaL" correct him/her by saying that de-religionization of Indic Hindu festivals is synonymous to cultural erasure.

With that being said, Iniya Pongal Nalvazhthukkal! 🕉🙏🏼
Same applies to Lohri, Makar Vilakku, Magh Bihu, Poush Sankranti, and all other beautiful Hindu festivals being celebrated today.

And for my biradari,

Makar Sankranti ki shubhkamnaayein,

Shubho Poush Shonkrantir shubheccha,

Lohri di lakh lakh vadhaiyaan. 🕉🙏🏼

Internalized Ethnocide is when a culture is destroyed by the practitioners of the culture themselves. The apparent perpetrator is the endogenous member of the culture, and the actual perpetrator is the Colonizer culture, who initiates this deracination.

Key instrument of internalization is the transferral of Colonizer-Indigenous Status Quo to Indigenous-Indigenous Status Quo. By transposing the relation the Indigenous share with Colonizers to intra-Indigenous communities.

This is done to birth antagonism amongst the various Indigenous people, towards each other, which replicates the antagonism the Indigenous harbour for the Colonizer, thereby causing friction within, which naturally weakens opposition to the Colonizer's ascendancy.
