#ReadTheThread. Ten things every Hindu can do!
I keep getting asked, ‘what can we, ordinary Hindus do for the Dharma?’

I am no expert on Dharma, but here are ten easy steps we can all take at our individual levels to assert our identity as Hindus. #Hindu #Identity #HinduPride
1) Tell your kids or nephews or nieces, or kids you know stories from our history and religion. Buy them Indic books. Take them to see Hindu temple architecture, and when they ask you, pointing at a vandalised Murti, ‘what happened here’? Tell them the truth, with the names!
2) Have a Pooja corner in your house. Have a regular ritual. Light a lamp. Make children pray before they set out for school. Just a simple chanting of a few shlokas is enough to keep them connected if you do it on a daily bases. Visit a temple on festivals or on their birthday.
3) Read up on topics like history and religion. Websites like and… have free online resources on Hinduism. Chrislamocommies prey on the fact that the average urban Hindu is either unaware/uninterested in knowing about history.
4) Do Sewa. If you write well, use social media to educate people. If you have money, donate a fixed sum each month to an organisation dedicated to an Indic cause. If it is time that you can spare, volunteer for an Indic organisation every week. Get involved.
5) Do not take leftist propaganda lying down. If you see Hinduphobic posts circulated, speak up. Chrislamocommies thrive because most Hindus do not raise their voice. In my experience, most people are waiting for that first voice of dissent. If you speak up, soon others will too.
6) Whatever you do, make it a conscious statement of your way of life, like choosing to wear Indian attire for social occasions, going out with a bindi or a teeka. Celebrate your festivals. Be comfortable in your identity as a Hindu. Do not be defensive. Assert. Always, assert.
7) Whenever possible, give Indic books as gifts or return gifts. There are many to choose from. Books like S L Bhyrappa’s ‘Aaavarana’ or @sanjeevsanyal's ‘Ocean Of Churn’ or Sri Aurobindo’s ‘India’s Rebirth’ or @davidfrawleyved's books make great gifts.
8) Subscribe to @SwarajyaMag, give away subscriptions as gifts. Read Indic portals like,, regularly. Knowledge is power. Remember that.
9) Use Indic vocabulary when you write/speak. Say Murti or Vigraha, not idol or statue, don’t use RIP to express condolences at the death of a Hindu, pray for #sadgati for the departed soul instead.
10) Stand up for a Hindu cause, not just for your caste cause or your language cause. Remember that old story, about the closed fist being stronger than five fingers? There is a lesson in there. Together, we are formidable, that is why the Chrislamocommies want to divide us
