“Dussehra -Good over Evil” in Modern Day

In Blog, customs & Traditions, Festivals of india, Inspiration, News, Pictures, Reblog, Religion and Spirituality, Story, Video, Writing on October 25, 2012 at 1:01 am

 

 

The holy book ‘The Gita‘ says, whenever there will be excess of evil Lord will rebirth to wipe out the evil from the face of the earth. I do not Know if the theory of incarnations  even exist. and I have never seen such godly act of wiping out the evil from the face of earth even though we see excesses being done everywhere.

 

India Celebrates Dussehra

Today India is celebrating Dussehra which basically symbolises “Win of goodness over evil“.  This day Goddess Durga (symbolising women power) hunts down demon Mahishasura.  This day Lord Rama killed the proud King Ravan.  Let me share with you Why it was Goddess Durga who had to Kill demon Mahishasura despite the presence of the almighty Trimurtis. In fact upon hard meditation and prayers the demon mahishasura gets a boon from God Brahma (The creator) that no Man can kill him. Now with this power his atrocities grows day by day to such an extent that his excesses continues over the women. Finally, It comes to the Adi Shakti to end the excesses of the demon. She symbolises the women power. What No man could Do, It was upto the ultimate Source of Power theAdi Shakti, Goddess Durga to put an end to Mahishasura. Also if you happen to see Ramayana (video as under), Ultimately SitaWife of Lord Rama & One of the form of Adi Shakti was the cause of the death of the Ravana.

 

 

 

Modern day Durga ?

 

The Excesses s against women, corruption, and many un social evils are prospering day by day, unabetting . Having said that,I must say, I’m no atheist but simply waiting for some super power to wipe out evil is neither acceptable nor feasible.  What I see is a girl from Pakistan, Malala, who raises her voice for the education which is the basic right of every individual and more so for the girl child. This girl has not even crossed primes of her age and is already a force to reckon with. I see the Goddess Durga  in her, fighting against the evil/ demon of illiteracy.

What this day symbolises is “win of good over evil” …….. excuse me …I DO NOT see any good ness around or if it’s even present in people like Malala or people like Anna, I do not see any WIN. DO YOU?  We must make an introspection, Why there is darn NO WIN?  Let me help you with a story which every one of us must have heard in our childhood.

 

Story

 

Once upon  a time there was an Old man.  He had four sons. One night, he had a dream that he was going to die. Next morning he called for all his sons. He gave each of them a piece of stick and asked them to break it. Each one of them broke it easily. Then he gave each of them four such sticks tied together and asked them to break. None of them could break it.

 

Moral of the Story

 

Before I say further, Let me ask you, if you saw the video I posted above. This video is a Ramlila play which depicts How Sita is tortured by Ravan and how Ram kills Ravan and eventually people celebrate. That all happened in past where we had one ravana one mahishasura fighting. But in the modern day the evil or the demon is multifaceted  It has taken the forms of corruption the forms of illiteracy, the forms of crime against the girl child, crime against women and many many many more. It seems the lesson what we needed to take from the story has been put on our face by the evil.  They have become united in their effort to spread anarchy across the globe.

Here I must ask you to rewind the video to the point where the protagonist of the movie Shah Rukh Khan sings few line Impressing the need to fight the modern day Evil.  I will put that particular clip for you here.

 

 

“Ram hi to Karuna me hai Shanti me Ram hai”
“Ram hi hai Ekta me Pragati me Ram hai”
“Ram bas bhakton nahi Shatru ki bhi chintan me hai”
“Dekh taj ke paap Ravan Ram tere Man me hai..Ram Mere Man me hai”
“Ram to ghar ghar me hai, Ram har aangan me hai”
“Man se Ravan Jo nikale Ram uske Man me hai”

 

Ram is in Peace, Unity, Progress, not only in followers’ mind but also in enemy’s mind.  O’ Ravan If you let go all the evil you will find Ram in you, Ram is in every home, everywhere.  Ram is in anybody’s who shuns evil from his/her mind. This is the rough message which this line presents.

 

let me come back to the point.  Single Malala or single Anna or Single Arvind can’t break the shackles. We ought to support them in the endeavours. Then only we can expect to WIN.

 

One such effort, I have seen in Lena Shareef’s Blog post #GIRL WITH THE BOOK, where she has become a media in support for Malala Yousafzai.  Let us begin with support to this young child in her crusades by supporting Lena in her endeavours.

Much Ado about Nothing!

In Crazy, Life, News, Politics, Religion and Spirituality, Story on May 6, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Since the covert operation by US élite commandos in Pakistan’s Abbottabad, much is being said about similar type of operation by Indian troops. On this side of border, yoga guru, who seems keen to get into politics ASAP by hogging the limelight, and many others are raising demands for a similar action against 26/11 terror suspects . While on the other side Pakistani Army chief has taken the baton. So called saviours of Hinduism and Islam. eff them!

If you see the fact, this is nothing else but plain politics. Not a single man from the either side of the border has wanted war, save for the war mongering Pakistani Army and blood thirsty politicians from the either side.

It seems logical from the Pakistan perspective that, given such situation prevailing there, anything sort of enhanced border activity against India shall be sufficient for general Pakistani public to turn a blind eye from the follies of their army and crave for some Indian bashing. While in India, it’s an easy way to hog limelight by criticizing people in power about their cowardice to act in similar way against the persons responsible for heinous crimes on Indian soil. For, if you put these people crying for justice for Indians at the helm of affairs,  they shall do the same. So what’s the problem?

It’s never the same when on one side it’s Uncle sam and on the other any given government of the world. Uncle Sam has always this theory of being the policemen of the world. What I feel, save for 9/11, the crimes against US are nothing more than their own past haunting them now.

A story from Indian Mythology

Once upon a time, there was a demon named Bhasmasur. He prayed for some thousand of years to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is supposed to be very innocent God, easily pleased with anyone (good or evil)  who worships him with all devotion. Hence most of the demons used to worship him for Aashirvaads (blessings). Lord Shiva was pleased with this demon, Bhasmasur for he had prayed for him sincerely and with all devotion. He appeared before him and asked him to Ask for any Gift. Bhasmasur thought for a while and said, ” Lord if you want to bless me, then Bless me a power that if ever I keep my hand on any body’s head, He would turn to ashes.” Lord Shiva said, “Tathasthu” (So be it.) Bhasmasur was pleased, but he wanted to test the blessings. He turned towards Lord Shiva himself to test his blessings. Lord Shiva understood the intentions of crafty demon, he ran. Bhasmashur ran after him. After a while Lord Shiva reached to Lord Vishnu and appraised him of all that happened. Vishnu smiled and assured Lord Shiva that he would handle it. Lord Vishnu changed himself into a beautiful lady (called mohini) and started dancing in front of Bhasmasur. Bhasmasur, a fool hardy demon started dancing with mohini. While dancing Mohini kept her hand over her head, Bhasmasur followed the step and died of his own blessings. His blessings turned curse for himself.

Well, the US is Lord Shiva here and the demon bhasmasur  or al quida/taliban (whatever you call it) is the creation of US itself. Now that demon has turned against himself. A demon that US created years ago. There is no escape from it.

As of today, US politicians are saying there is no comparison between 9/11 and 26/11. WTH! Citizens of both the countries died in the attack from people outside their countries. Numbers should not matter, I guess. If it’s, then US is a Major Criminal for what they have done in Iraq, Afghanistan and many other places across the world, where their troops have killed millions of innocent people. Some time on the pretext of Mass Destruction weapons or sometime on the pretext of freedom and democracy.

Anyway, What I am saying is that Indian govt is not so fool hardy to get into such matter of unnecessary importance. So listen Uncle Sam, We don’t give a shit what you think about parallels of 9/11 & 26/11. We have  business of importance other than war mongering and invading freedom of other countries.  For people like, Baba Ramdev and Army Chief kayani better be shut up and mind their own business. People of India and Pakistan want to live in peace and earn their bread. Don’t try to misinterpret their silence. For Indians shall teach you a lesson in  next general elections and Pakistani shall not let you be capable of staging any coup further. Let your war mongering mouths be shut.

Let there be Peace…

aman ki asha

Peace

Anyway, people have short memory they shall forget this stuff by next week. By that time every body will be glued to their television sets for IPL. And above all I’m shit tired of all this obl hash tags (#obl) on twitter and war mongering statements in press and media.
