Thoughts of Rabindranath Tagore on Hindu-Muslim Relations


Christianity and Islam determined to destroy all other Religions: There are two religions in earth, which have distinct enmity against all other religions. These two are Christianity and Islam. They are not just satisfied with observing their own religions, but are determined to destroy all other religions. That’s why the only way to make peace with them is to embrace their religions.” (Original works of Rabindranath Vol. 24 pages 375, Vishwa Bharti; 1982)

Muslims can not confine their `Patriotism to any one country’ : a very important factor which is making it almost impossible for Hindu-Muslim unity to become an accomplished fact is that the Muslims can not confine their patriotism to any one country. I had frankly asked (the Muslims) whether in the event of any Mohammedan power invading India, they (Muslims) would stand side by side with their Hindu neighbours to defend their common land. I was not satisfied with the reply I got from them… Even such a man as Mr. Mohammad Ali (one of the famous Ali brothers, the leaders of the Khilafat Movement-the compiler) has declared that under no circumstances is it permissible for any Mohammedan, whatever be his country, to stand against any Mohammedan.” (Interview of Rabindranath in `Times of India’, 18-4-1924 in the column, `Through Indian Eyes on the Post Khilafat Hindu Muslim Riots)

Hindus and Muslims can make a fake friendship: Whenever a Muslim called upon the Muslim society, he never faced any resistance- he called in the name of one God `Allah-ho-Akbar’. On the other hand, when we (Hindus) call will call, `come on, Hindus’, who will respond? We, the Hindus, are divided in numerous small communities, many barriers-provincialism – who will respond overcoming all these obstacles?

“We suffered from many dangers, but we could never be united. When Mohammed Ghouri brought the first blow from outside, the Hindus could not be united, even in the those days of imminent danger. When the Muslims started to demolish the temples one after another, and to break the idols of Gods and Goddesses, the Hindus fought and died in small units, but they could not be united. It has been provided that we were killed in different ages due to our discord.

“Weakness harbours sin. So, if the Muslims beat us and we, the Hindus, tolerate this without resistance-then, we will know that it is made possible only by our weakness. For the sake of ourselves and our neighbour Muslims also, we have to discard our weakness. We can appeal to our neighbour Muslims, `Please don’t be cruel to us. No religion can be based on genocide’ – but this kind of appeal is nothing, but the weeping of the weak person. When the low pressure is created in the air, storm comes spontaneously; nobody can stop it for sake for religion. Similarly, if weakness is cherished and be allowed to exist, torture comes automatically – nobody can stop it. Possibly, the Hindus and the Muslims can make a fake friendship to each other for a while, but that cannot last forever. As long as you don’t purify the soil, which grows only thorny shrubs you cannot expect any fruit. ” (The above is the part of the article “Swamy Shraddhananda’, written by Rabindranath in Magh, 1333 Bangabda; compiled in the book ‘Kalantar’)

Own religion true-others are false: “When two-three different religions claim that only their own religions are true and all other religions are false, their religions are only ways to Heaven, conflicts can not be avoided. Thus, fundamentalism tries to abolish all other religions. This is called Bolshevism in religion. Only the path shown by the Hinduism can relieve the world form this meanness.” (The above is the part of the article `Aatmaparichapa’ in his book `Parichaya’)

Make your children strong: The terrible situation of the country makes my mind restless and I cannot keep silent. Meaningless ritual keep the Hindus divided in hundred sects. Sop we are suffering from series of defeats. We are tired and worn-out by the fortunes by the internal external enemies. The Muslims are united in religion and rituals. The Bengali Muslims the South Indian Muslims and even the Muslims outside India-all are united. They always stand untied in face of danger. The broken and divided Hindus will not be able to combat them. Days are coming when the Hindus will be again humiliated by the Muslims.

“You are a mother of children, one day you will die, passing the future of Hindus society on the weak shoulders of your children, but think about their future.” (From the letter to Hemantabala Sarkar, written on 16the October, 1933, quoted in Bengali weekly `Swastika’, 21-6-1999)

ઇસ્લામમાં Aurat યોનિ થાય છે. અથવા pussy


I

In Pakistan, india and Bangldesh
Aurat means Vagina or Pussy.
SOME TIMES ; By. Santosh Bhatt

Islam નો મહિલાઓ જાતીય માણસોhu તરીકે જોવામાં આવે છે. તેમના શરીરના દરેક ભાગમાં શૃંગારિક માનવામાં આવે છે. તેના પ્રત્યેક ચોરસ ઇંચ, જાતીય છે. તેના સમગ્ર શરીર ખાનગી ભાગો હોવાનું માનવામાં આવે છે કારણ કે તે, હેડ માંથી ટો કવર જ જોઈએ.
પાકિસ્તાન, સ્ત્રીઓ awra કહેવામાં આવે છે. Awra અથવા aurat આવરી લેવામાં આવે છે કે શરીરના ભાગ છે. જો Awra ખુલ્લુ પાડવું ઇસ્લામમાં ગેરકાનૂની છે અને પાપ તરીકે ગણવામાં આવે છે. વ્યુત્પત્તિશાસ્ત્રની રીતે, શબ્દ Awra “defectiveness”, “અપૂર્ણતા”, “ડાઘ” અથવા “નબળાઇ” થાય છે જે રુટ ‘awr પરથી આવ્યો છે – જો કે સૌથી સામાન્ય ઇંગલિશ અનુવાદ “નગ્નતા” છે.

ઇરાન ઇસ્લામિક શાસન સ્ત્રીઓ zaifeh કહે છે. તે માટે સ્ત્રીની છે “નબળા.” ગુપ્ત માં ખામી છે મુહમ્મદ સ્ત્રીઓ અનુસાર ત્યારથી આ પણ માનસિક નબળાઇ સૂચિત. ઇસ્લામમાં સ્ત્રી પરિસ્થિતિ ઉપર આ રકમનું. તમે આ કરતાં વધુ સ્પષ્ટ હોઈ શકે નહિં.
સ્ત્રીઓ નબળા, ખામીયુક્ત અને ખાનગી ભાગ છે, તેઓ પુરુષો સાથે હોઇ શકે છે કે જે કોઈપણ સંપર્ક તરીકે જોવામાં આવે છે કે સમાજમાં જાતીય અને ગેરકાનૂની ગણવામાં આવે છે.

મુસ્લિમ દેશોમાં મહિલાઓ અલગ છે. ખૂબ જ બાળપણ છોકરાઓ અને છોકરીઓ સિવાય રાખવામાં આવે છે. તેઓ એકબીજા સાથે રમવા નથી, એકબીજા સાથે શાળાએ નથી.
એક મુસ્લિમ મહિલા સમગ્ર શરીર ખાનગી ભાગ છે. તમે તેની સાથે હાથ મિલાવવા હોય તો તેથી તે તેના ડાળી કે શાખાઓ વચ્ચેનો ખૂણો સ્પર્શ તરીકે જ છે. તે તેના વાળ દર્શાવે છે, તો તે તેના pubic વાળ જાહેર થયેલ છે. તેના બધું જાતીય અને ખાનગી ભાગ છે.

ઇસ્લામ સ્ત્રીઓ તેમના પુરૂષ સંબંધીઓ ના namoos (ناموس) છે. Namoos આશરે સન્માન, પરંતુ તેને એક લૈંગિક સૂચિતાર્થ સાથે ભાષાંતર કરી શકો છો. Prying આંખો માંથી તેમના માદા કિન રક્ષણ પર મુસ્લિમ ટકી આ namoos.

એક મહિલા તેની સુંદરતા અથવા અજાણી વ્યક્તિ માણસ માટે મંત્રણા દર્શાવે છે, તો બધા તેના પુરુષ સંબંધીઓ ના namoos ઘાયલ થયેલ છે. ઇજાગ્રસ્ત namoos રિડીમ કરવા માટે આ એકમાત્ર રસ્તો લોહી સાથે ડાઘ ધોવા માટે છે.

પિતૃપ્રધાન સમાજ સ્વ અવમૂલ્યન અર્થમાં સાથે પુરૂષો પેદા કરે છે. તેથી, જ્યારે મુસ્લિમ માણસ “સન્માન,” તેમણે કાબૂમાં રાખવું હેઠળ તેમના આશ્રિતો સ્ત્રી રાખી શકો છો કેવી રીતે લગભગ સંપૂર્ણપણે આધાર રાખે છે.

તેમણે અનુભવતું છે કે કરવું નિષ્ફળ કરીશું. કુલ દરેકને તેમને વિશે વાત અને તેની પીઠ પાછળ તેમને હસવું આવશે કે જાણે છે.

કુલ કરવામાં આવ્યું છે જે મહિલા હત્યા “defiled.” ઇસ્લામિક સોસાયટી, જેમ કે એક માણસ પર નીચે જોવા નથી, પરંતુ તેમણે ghairat (ગૌરવ, સન્માન, અર્થમાં) હોવા તરીકે lionized છે તેના દ્વારા namoos પુનઃસ્થાપિત કરી શકો છો.

પ્રશ્ન આ ગાંડપણ અટકાવવા માટે કેવી રીતે છે. હવે અમે આ સમસ્યા રુટ કારણ ખબર કે જવાબ સ્પષ્ટ છે. આ સમસ્યા ઇસ્લામિક misogyny છે.

અમે ગુપ્ત માં ખામી નબળી અને આવરાયેલ છે કે ખામીયુક્ત વસ્તુ તેની સ્ત્રીઓ વર્તે છે કે સમાજ પાસેથી વધુ અપેક્ષા રાખી શકો નહીં. સ્ત્રીઓ dehumanized છે અને sexualized સન્માન હત્યાનો પરિણામ છે. જ્યાં

ઇસ્લામમાં, એક છોકરી માટે પરિપક્વતા વર્ષની 9 વર્ષ છે અને એક બોય માટે 15 વર્ષ છે. આ એક 9 વર્ષના છોકરી અને 15 વર્ષના છોકરો પરિપક્વતા સમાન સ્તર ધરાવે છે માનવામાં આવે છે કે થાય છે.

હવે, જો છોકરી છ વર્ષ અગાઉ બોય કરતાં પરિપક્વતા પહોંચે, પછી શા માટે સ્ત્રીઓ ચાર્જ હતી ભગવાન સ્થળ પુરુષો? માતાનો ભગવાન જજમેન્ટ સાથે કંઇક ખોટું હતું?

સન્માન હત્યાનો ઇસ્લામિક દેશોમાં અસર માત્ર સમસ્યા નથી. સરમુખત્યારશાહી, હિંસા, આતંકવાદ, ગરીબી, માનવ અધિકારના દુરુપયોગની, અને મુસ્લિમ દેશોમાં સ્થાનિક છે કે અન્ય સમસ્યાઓ એક યજમાન બધા ઇસ્લામ ઉપદેશો કારણે થાય છે.

મુસ્લિમો ઓનર પોતાના પુત્રીઓ અથવા હત્યાનો ભયાનક કૃત્ય છે જે બહેનો ઓફ કિલીંગ નથી, અમુક એક તમારા પોતાના પરિવારના સભ્યો કિલીંગ માં ઓનર છે તે મને સમજાવો કૃપા કરીને?
કુરાન likens કુલ વિલ્સ તરીકે એક માણસ દ્વારા ઉપયોગમાં લેવા માટે એક ક્ષેત્ર (ખેડ) માટે એક મહિલા,: “તમારા સ્ત્રીઓ યે ચાલશે જેથી તમારા ખેડ પર જાઓ તમારા માટે ખેડ (કેળવવા માટે છે)” (2:223) .

કુરાન પણ એક મહિલા જુબાની કે એક માણસ વર્થ અડધા છે કે જાહેર: “તમારા પોતાના માણસો, બે સાક્ષીઓ મેળવો અને યે પસંદ જેમ કે પછી બે માણસો એક માણસ અને બે મહિલાઓ,, માટે ત્યાં ન હોય તો તેમને એક errs જો સાક્ષીઓ, અન્ય તેના “(2:282) યાદ કરી શકીએ.

તે પુરુષો ચાર પત્નીઓ સુધી લગ્ન કરવા માટે પરવાનગી આપે છે, અને એ પણ ગુલામ કન્યાઓ સાથે સંભોગ છે: યે યે અનાથ સાથે justly વ્યવહાર સમક્ષ રજુ કરવાનો પ્રયત્ન રહેશે ડર છે કે “જો, તમારી પસંદગી, બે અથવા ત્રણ અથવા ચાર મહિલા સાથે લગ્ન, પરંતુ જો યે યે (તેમને સાથે) justly વ્યવહાર માટે સમર્થ નથી રહેશે કે ભય, તો પછી માત્ર એક, અથવા (એક કેપ્ટિવ) તમારા જમણા હાથ ધરાવે છે, કે જે અન્યાય “(4:3) કરવાથી તમે રોકવા માટે વધુ યોગ્ય રહેશે.

જો તે પુત્ર માતાનો વારસો પુત્રી કે બે વખત માપ પ્રયત્ન કરીશું કે જે નિયમો: “અલ્લાહ (આમ) તમે તમારા બાળકો (વારસા) ગણાવે દિશામાન: પુરુષ માટે, બે સ્ત્રીઓ કે બરાબર એક ભાગ” (4:11) .

બધા વરવા છે, મુસલમાનોનો મુખ્ય ધર્મગ્રંથ તેમના અવગણના કરનારું પત્નીઓ હરાવ્યું પતિના કહે છે: “તેઓ (સ્ત્રીઓ આધાર માટે) તેમની મિલકત ખર્ચ કારણ કે અલ્લાહ એક્સેલ તેમને એક અન્ય સામગ્રી, અને આ બધુ મેળવી આપ્યું છે કારણ કે પુરૂષો, સ્ત્રીઓ ચાર્જ છે. તેથી સારા સ્ત્રીઓ અલ્લાહ સાવચેતીભર્યું આપ્યું છે કે જે ગુપ્ત માં રક્ષણ માટે, આજ્ઞાકારી હોય છે. યે બળવો ડર જેમને તે માટે, તેમને સમજાવવું અને અલગ પથારી તેમને દેશનિકાલ કરવું, અને શાપ તેમને “(4:34).

તે ઇસ્લામિક છૂટાછેડા કાર્યવાહી (65:4) “હજુ સુધી માસિક ધર્મમાં ન હોય તેવા લોકો માટે લાગુ પડશે કે” નક્કી, પૂર્વ તરુણ કન્યાઓ માટે લગ્ન માટે પરવાનગી આપે છે.

મુસ્લિમ શિક્ષણ અથવા સિદ્ધિઓ પર ગર્વ ન લો અને વિજ્ઞાન શ્રેષ્ઠતા હાંસલ કરવાની પરંતુ તેમના ગૌરવ બદલે બે કાન વચ્ચે તેમના પોતાના માદા સભ્યો બે પગ વચ્ચે છે .. વલણવાળું ..
ત્યાં આ બધા સમસ્યાઓ માટે એક સ્પષ્ટ ઉકેલ છે, પરંતુ તે કહે રાજકીય ખોટો છે. આ સમસ્યા Islam નો છે, અને ઉકેલ તે છુટકારો મેળવવા માટે છે. આ વિશ્વાસ વિશે સત્ય કહેવાની અને ખ્રિસ્તી અને અન્ય તમામ ધર્મો ટીકા કરવામાં આવી છે કે આ જ રીતે ટીકા જરૂરી છે.

જોકે, Moslims પૃથ્વી પર દરેક અન્ય વિશ્વાસ ટીકા, પરંતુ ઇસ્લામ અને મોહમ્મદ કાર્ય ટીકા કોઈ કોઈ મોટી છે તે માટે યોગ્ય છે. સ્ત્રી હોઈ બને જે સાથી નાગરિક સાથે જ બસ પર જુલમ નિષિદ્ધ છે.,

અને હાથ મિલાવવા અથવા આંખ સંપર્ક નથી. સ્ત્રીઓ સાથે કોઇ સંપર્ક જે માત્ર તેમને પાપ અને તેણે બળાત્કાર કરી શકે છે કારણ નહીં હોય, પણ તેના પુરુષ સંબંધીઓ ભંગ કરશે, લૈંગિક આ મેલું Moslim પુરૂષો પેદા કરી શકે છે.
કુરાન (4:34) પુરુષો સ્ત્રીઓ ચાર્જ છે કહે છે. આ જ શ્લોક “સારો સ્ત્રીઓ અલ્લાહ સાવચેતીભર્યું આપ્યું છે કે જે ગુપ્ત માં રક્ષણ માટે, આજ્ઞાકારી હોય છે.” કહે છે

આ ગુપ્ત તેમના awra છે. ઇસ્લામમાં મહિલા આખા શરીરને જાતીય ગણવામાં આવે છે, કારણ કે તેઓ તેમના શરીરના દરેક ભાગ આવરે છે અને અજાણી વ્યક્તિ પુરુષો સાથે સંપર્ક ટાળવા જ જોઈએ. શ્લોક 24:31 સ્ત્રીઓ માને છે, તેમના ત્રાટકશક્તિ ઓછી સામાન્ય હોઈ શકે છે અને તેઓ તેમના bosoms પર તેમના veils ડ્રો અને અજાણ્યાની માટે તેમની સુંદરતા દર્શાવવા જોઈએ નહિં જ જોઈએ છે.
પશ્ચિમમાં, એક મહિલા તેની સાથે ડાન્સ પણ ગાલ પર તેના ચુંબન અને લૈંગિક ગણવામાં આવે છે કે જે કંઈ સાથે હાથ મિલાવવા કરી શકો છો.
ઇસ્લામમાં Aurat યોનિ થાય છે.

Holi – the festival of colorsपिचकारी की दुकान से दूर हाथों में, कुछ सिक्के गिनते मैंने उसे देखा. एक गरीब बच्चे की आखों में, मैंने होली को मरते देखा. थी चाह उसे भी नए कपड़े पहनने की… पर उन्हीं पुराने कपड़ों को मैंने उसे साफ करते देखा. तुमने देखा कभी चाँद पर बैठा पानी? मैंने उसके रुखसार पर बैठा देखा. हम करते हैं सदा अपने ग़मों की नुमाइश… उसे चुपचाप ग़मों को पीते देखा. थे नही माँ-बाप उसके.. उसे माँ का प्यार और पापा के हाथों की कमी महसूस करते देखा. जब मैंने कहा, “बच्चे, क्या चाहिए तुम्हे”? तो उसे चुपचाप मुस्कुरा कर “ना” में सिर हिलाते देखा. थी वह उम्र बहुत छोटी अभी… पर उसके अंदर मैंने ज़मीर को पलते देखा. सारे शहर के लोगों के रंगे पुते चेहरे में…. मैंने उसके हँसते, मगर बेबस चेहरे को देखा. हम तो जिंदा हैं अभी शान से यहाँ पर उसे जीते जी शान से मरते देखा. नामाकूल रही होली मेरी… जब मैंने ज़िन्दगी के इस दूसरे अजीब पहलू को देखा. कोई मनाता है जश्न, और कोई रहता है तरसता . मैंने वो देखा.. जो हम सब ने देख कर भी नहीं देखा. लोग कहते हैं त्यौहार होते हैं ज़िन्दगी की ख़ुशियों के लिए, तो क्यों मैंने उसे मन ही मन घुटते और तरसते देखा… आप से यही अपील करूंगा होली पर किसी गरीब बच्चे की जिन्दगी में खुशियों का रंग घोल कर देखें यकीन मानिये आप का ये रंगों का त्योहार और निखर जाएगा आप पैसे देकर या नये कपड़े दिला कर किसी गरीब या अनाथ बच्चे की होली रंगों से सजा सकते हैं “इस बार होली कुछ यू मनाएं किसी गरीब की खुशियाँ रंगों से सजाएं ” — एक प्रयास तो कीजिये आपका त्योहार आपको खुशियों से भर देगा 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏


Holi – the festival of colors

SOME TIMES:  By Santosh Bhatt

Bharat (India) ( Hindustan) is not just a piece of Land, Mountains, or Rivers but it is and Experience of Thousands and Thousands of years .
Our Philosophy, Psychology, Science and Knowledge is not which has come out of nothing but it is an experience of our ancient forefathers and Yogi’s and Rishi.
Hindustan is a Land of Colors and you can feel smell and taste Life in every corner and street and every family cherish color which brings laughter on every ones face.
Holi – the festival of colors – is undoubtedly the most fun-filled and boisterous of Hindu festival. It’s an occasion that brings in unadulterated joy and mirth, Fun and Food and Play, music and dance, and, of course, lots of bright colors!

Happy Days Are Here Again!
With winter neatly tucked up in the attic, it’s time to come out of our cocoons and enjoy this spring festival. Every year it is celebrated on the day after the full moon in early March and glorifies good harvest and fertility of the land. It is also time for spring harvest. The new crop refills the stores in every household and perhaps such abundance accounts for the riotous merriment during Holi. This also explains the other names of this celebration – ‘Vasant Mahotsava’ and ‘Kama Mahotsava’.

“Don’t Mind, It’s Holi!”
During Holi, practices, which at other times could be offensive, are allowed. Squirting colored water on passers-by, dunking friends in pool amidst teasing and laughter, getting intoxicated on Bhaang and reveling with companions is perfectly acceptable. In fact, on the days of Holi, you can get away with almost anything by saying, “Don’t mind, it’s Holi!” (Hindi = Bura na mano, Holi hai.)

The Festive License!
Women, especially, enjoy the freedom of relaxed rules and sometimes join in the merriment rather aggressively. There is also much vulgar behavior connected with phallic themes. It is a time when pollution is not important, a time for license and obscenity in place of the usual societal and caste restrictions. In a way, Holi is a means for the people to ventilate their ‘latent heat’ and experience strange physical relaxations.

Like all Indian and Hindu festivals, Holi is inextricably linked to mythical tales. There are at least three legends that are directly associated with the festival of colors: the Holika-Hiranyakashipu-Prahlad episode, Lord Shiva’s killing of Kamadeva, and the story of the ogress Dhundhi.

The Holika-Prahlad Episode
The evolution of the term Holi makes an interesting study in itself. Legend has it that it derives its name from Holika, the sister of the mythical megalomaniac king Hiranyakashipu who commanded everyone to worship him. But his little son Prahlad refused to do so. Instead he became a devotee of Vishnu (One the Hindu Sanatan God Of Trinity. Shree Krishna)

Hiranyakashipu ordered his sister Holika to kill Prahlad and she, possessing the power to walk through fire unharmed, picked up the child and walked into a fire with him. Prahlad, however, chanted the names of God and was saved from the fire. Holika perished because she did not know that her powers were only effective if she entered the fire alone.

This myth has a strong association with the festival of Holi, and even today there is a practice of hurling cow dung into the fire and shouting obscenities at it, as if at Holika.

The Story of Dhundhi
It was also on this day that an ogress called Dhundhi, who was troubling the children in the kingdom of Prthu was chased away by the shouts and pranks of village youngsters. Although this female monster had secured several boons that made her almost invincible, shouts, abuses and pranks of boys was a chink in the armor for Dhundi, owing to a curse from Lord Shiva.

The Kamadeva Myth
It is often believed that it was on this day that Lord Shiva opened his third eye and incinerated Kamadeva, the god of love, to death. So, many people worship Kamadeva on Holi-day, with the simple offering of a mixture of mango blossoms and sandalwood paste.

Radha-Krishna Legend
Holi is also celebrated in memory of the immortal love of Lord Shree Krishna and Radha. The young Krishna would complain to his mother Yashoda about why Radha was so fair and he so dark. Yashoda advised him to apply colour on Radha’s face and see how her complexion would change. In the legends of Krishna as a youth he is depicted playing all sorts of pranks with the gopis or cowgirls. One prank was to throw colored powder all over them. So at Holi, images of Krishna and his consort Radha are often carried through the streets. Holi is celebrated with éclat in the villages around Mathura, the birth-place of Shree Krishna.
Holi as a festival seems to have started several Thousands centuries before Christ as can be inferred from its mentions in the religious works of Jaimini’s Purvamimamsa-Sutras and Kathaka-Grhya-Sutra.

Holi in Temple Sculptures
Holi is one of the oldest among Hindu festivals, there is no doubt. Various references are found in the sculptures on walls of old temples. A 16th century panel sculpted in a temple at Hampi, capital of Vijayanagar, shows a joyous scene depicting Holi where a prince and his princess are standing amidst maids waiting with syringes to drench the royal couple in colored water.

Holi in Medieval Paintings
A 16th century Ahmednagar painting is on the theme of Vasanta Ragini – spring song or music. It shows a royal couple sitting on a grand swing, while maidens are playing music and spraying colors with pichkaris (hand-pumps). A Mewar painting (circa 1755) shows the Maharana with his courtiers. While the ruler is bestowing gifts on some people, a merry dance is on, and in the center is a tank filled with colored water. A Bundi miniature shows a king seated on a tusker, and from a balcony above some damsels are showering gulal (colored powders) on him.

Birthday of Shri Chaitanya MahaPrabhu
Holi Purnima is also celebrated as the birthday of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (A.D. 1486-1533), mostly in Bengal, and also in the coastal city of Puri, Orissa, and the holy cities of Mathura and Vrindavan, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Making the Colors of Holi
The colors of Holi, called ‘gulal’, in the medieval times were made at home, from the flowers of the ‘tesu’ or ‘palash’ tree, also called ‘the flame of the forest’. These flowers, bright red or deep orange in color, were collected from the forest and spread out on mats, to dry in the sun, and then ground to fine dust. The powder when mixed with water made a beautiful saffron-red dye. This pigment and also ‘aabir’, made from natural colored talc, which were extensively used as Holi colors, are good for the skin, unlike the chemical colors of our days.
Colorful days, solemn rituals, joyous celebrations – Holi is a boisterous occasion! Draped in white, people throng the streets in large numbers and smear each other with bright hued powders and squirt coloured water on one another through pichkaris (big syringe-like hand-pumps), irrespective of caste, color, race, sex, or social status; all these petty differences are temporarily relegated to the background and people give into an unalloyed colorful rebellion. There is exchange of greetings, the elders distribute sweets and money, and all join in frenzied dance to the rhythm of the drums. But if you wanna know how to celebrate the festival of colors to the fullest through the whole length of three days, here’s a primer.

Holi-Day 1
The day of the full moon (Holi Purnima) is the first day of Holi. A platter (‘thali’) is arranged with colored powders, and colored water is placed in a small brass pot (‘lota’). The eldest male member of the family begins the festivities by sprinkling colors on each member of the family, and the youngsters follow.

Holi-Day 2
On the second day of the festival called ‘Puno’, images of Holika are burnt in keeping with the legend of Prahlad and his devotion to lord Vishnu. In rural India, the evening is celebrated by lighting huge bonfires as part of the community celebration when people gather near the fire to fill the air with folk songs and dances. Mothers often carry their babies five times in a clockwise direction around the fire, so that her children are blessed by Agni, the god of fire.

Holi-Day 3
The most boisterous and the final day of the festival is called ‘Parva’, when children, youth, men and women visit each other’s homes and colored powders called ‘aabir’ and ‘gulal’ are thrown into the air and smeared on each other’s faces and bodies. ‘Pichkaris’ and water balloons are filled with colors and spurted onto people – while young people pay their respects to elders by sprinkling some colors on their feet, some powder is also smeared on the faces of the deities, especially Shree Krishna and Radha.

Swami Vivekananda is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, because politicians today are maligning his name for their myopic purposes. However, one can, even today, take inspiration from his words:

1. Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

2. Be a hero. Always say, “I have no fear.” Tell this to everyone — “Have no fear.”
Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness, fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear. Face the brute, which is a lesson for all life—face the terrible, face it boldly. The hardships of life fall back when we cease to flee before them.

3. We must have friendship for all; we must be merciful toward those that are in misery; when people are happy, we ought to be happy; and to the wicked we must be indifferent. These attitudes will make the mind peaceful.

4. Fill the brain with the high thoughts, the highest ideals, place them day and night before you, and out of that will come great work. Who will give the world light? Sacrifice in the past has been the Law, it will be, alas, for ages to come. The earth’s bravest and best will have to sacrifice themselves for the good of many, for the welfare of all.

5. Truth, purity, and unselfishness – whenever these are present, there is no power below or above the sun to crush the possessor thereof. Equipped with these, one individual is able to face the whole universe in opposition.

6. Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.
Strength is the sign of vigour, the sign of life, the sign of hope, the sign of health, and the sign of everything that is good. As long as the body lives, there must be strength in the body, strength in the mind, strength in the hand.

7. Great work requires great and persistent effort for a long time. Character has to be established through a thousand stumbles. As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God.

8. So long as millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every person a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them.

9. We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

10. Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succour you want is within yourselves. Therefore, make your own future.

11. Do not believe in a thing because you have read about it in a book. Do not believe in a thing because another man has said it was true. Do not believe in words because they are hallowed by tradition. Find out the truth for yourself. Reason it out. That is realization.

Happy Birthday to Swami Vivekanand


Today is Swami Vivekanand’s 150th birthday.

Swamiji was a lion who roared on the soil of India and gave back to the Indians the self respect which they had lost under years of foreign rule and a systematic attack on their cultural values.

In the course of a short life of thirty-nine years (1863-1902), of which only ten were devoted to public activities, Swamiji travelled twice to the West, studied scriptures, wrote four classics – Jnana-Yoga, Bhakti-Yoga, Karma-Yoga, and Raja-Yoga, established Sri Ramakrishna Math, Sri Ramakrishna Mission, Advaita Ashram, wrote inspirational articles and letters, delivered innumerable lectures, composed numerous poems, and acted as spiritual guide to the many seekers who came to him for instruction.

I join my fellow countrymen to salute this great Sanyaasi.

With great pleasure I have to inform you that on January 15 I have been invited by Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Sector 62, Noida to deliver a talk on Swami Vivekanand. It is a matter of great honour for me, and I feel humbled.

Standing tall between two giants – Swami Vivekanand and Sri Aurobindo – what more could have I asked for!
