CCP understands importance of narrative and psychological conditioning.
Today in India, go to any mall, major educational institution, you will find the hegemony of English and Roman Script. This conditions people's minds to accept its supremacy and inevitability. China gets it.
It's a pity that 8 years in, the BJP has only done cosmetic changes to NCERT textbooks, while the UPA created a series of anti-Hindu textbooks within a year of coming to power, completely replacing old ones. They understand the importance of narrative war. indianexpress.com/article/expres…
The Left ecosystem will scream even about these minor changes causing the BJP to be apologetic and backtrack while the whole host of anti-Hindu content, which Neeraj Atri documents, remains unchanged.

These are essentially scientific ideas using a different terminology. Time is represented by the 12 months. These can, for instance, determine cultivation and even our moods. It is simple to understand "devas" as forces or energies that are all around us.
Appeared briefly on Arnab's debate on sedition on @republic. It's not the place for nuance, so here is the nuanced view.
1. We need to look at FOE in totality. Sedition law is one part of it. There are a lot of laws, not just 124A, that are of concern—153A, 505, 295A, 298...
Many of these laws are used arbitrarily, give the state draconian power to arrest people, as we saw in the case of @TajinderBagga and many others. People can be arrested over an innocuous statement or SM post by police acting for vindictive politicians.
2. At the same time...

That "secularization" did not stop inter-community strife, it increased it.
