India That is Bharat
Bharat is undoubtedly moving on its track once again to lead the whole world as the Vishwa Guru. The inherent strong willpower that lies in the social fabric of Bharat is unique and our nation is equally blessed with the best brains in the world. In the field of science, literature, spiritualism, or for that matter, our country is always at the top as history has its record. Our natural resources with untapped energy, our disciplined society and our natural system of living have made us superior human beings in comparison to other continents in the world. We have been worshipping the Sun God, Tree God and Mother rivers for thousands of years. That is why Bharat has always been ahead of all other countries in the international arena in their respective fields. The only thing we need is to stick to our roots, follow our own culture, lifestyle, environment, history and preserve our rich heritage. Many world leaders have a sharp eye on India’s rich culture and its scientific growth. Bharat has always proved its credentials, whether it’s discovery of “zero”, or our fantastic high standard in the field of literature. Our spiritual masters and intellectuals like Adi Guru Shankracharya, Ramkrishna Paramhans, Swami Vivekanand, Guru Ravindranath Tagore, all have proved their dominance the world over. Even today, the messages of the Bhagvad Gita, Vedas and Upanishads are followed and accepted by all religious and spiritual masters in different countries. Modern India has doyens like VS Naipaul, Kailash Satyarthi and many more in different sectors for making better human lives in the world. In Bharat, we believe in Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, which means the whole world is one family. This very concept of oneness, one family and over all welfare of human lives is very much there in our social fabric. So, it has always been a conspiracy of different alien forces to destroy our culture, history, environment and education system. The aliens rulers destroyed the feelings of Indianness in each and every sector. The Moghals and the Britishers polluted our culture in every nook and cranny of Bharat and they also changed the names of our villages, cities, states, etc, after the names of their rulers name. Today, around 300 villages in Uttar Pradesh are named after the names of Mughal rulers like Akbarpur, Aurangabad, Humayunpur, Babarpur, etc. Mohammed-bin-Tughlak changed the name of Devgiri to Daulatabad. In Gujarat, when Ahmed Shah ruled Karnavati, he changed the name to Ahmedabad. Lucknow of Uttar Pradesh was earlier known as Lakshmanpur. When present Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath rechristened Allahabad to Prayagraj, the secular brigade raised a lot of brouhaha.
Change in a positive direction is always welcome. In many states like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, the names of places are changed now, according to the old names, keeping in consideration the local feelings. Bombay has been changed to Mumbai, Banglore to Bengaluru, etc. In Delhi, the Aurangzeb road has been renamed as Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Road, Race Course Road has been renamed as Lok Kalyan Marg. We all Bharatiyas welcomed the decisions of the Union and state governments to rename our villages, cities or local roads in consonance with our ancient historians’, social leaders’ and patriots’ names. We should congratulate our governments for renaming many of our international airports, railway stations and bus terminals after our great social leaders. But in our society, there are still many Jaichands, who are Indians with an alien mindset. These intellectual commies feel proud of themselves of having ‘secular credentials’. But in reality, they are paid activists of a divisive theory that prefers to worship the Chinese God in India instead of worshipping Bharat Mata. Whenever there is the issue against chanting Vande Mataram, chanting Saraswati Vandana, or returning national awards, they lead the movements. Anything against Indian nationalism suits them and these ‘secular intellectuals’ still see things in blinkers, especially on issues like ‘social revolution’ and always create social unrest in the country. But they are badly failed now and their support base has been reduced to almost zero. I aver that how many Kanhaiya Kumars they may produce, it would have no impact on the mindset of the true patriots of Bharat Mata. This great nation must remember the sacrifice of Ambedkar, Khudiram Bose, Veer Savarkar, Vinoba Bhave and Acharya Harihar. The left-out divisive forces must be rooted out in the country, who have been instrumental in the partition of this great nation. We should never allow growing of such anti-national forces that always work against our social fabric. We follow Sanatan Dharma, which allows co-existence of all religions and sects under one umbrella in this country with peace and harmony. So let’s ignore the ignorant of Prayagraj, Karnavati and Indraprastha.
