A Review of ‘Introducing Hinduism' by Vinay Lal (2005), Totem Books, USA.
By Vishal Agarwal
The book under review combines cartoons with text - an attractive and light-hearted style for introducing Hinduism to beginners. Unfortunately, the author succeeds in perpetuating negative stereotypes about the third largest religion of the world, and presents a non-insightful and a biased view of the faith.
But for all of this to happen there must be tacit acknowledgement that there has been a mechanism such as the SSS at work that has robbed the Indics of their capability to question long held dogmatic beliefs. Vedantic techniques offer us the means to once again become a discerning and sophisticated body politic. A little bit of shravanam, mananam and nididhyasanam can go a long way to mitigating the destructive effects of the SSS. We will dwell upon these issues in a sequel to this article.
असम के हुसैन अली भले ही 80 साल के हो गए हों लेकिन उम्र के इस पड़ाव पर भी वह पूरी तरह सेहतमंद हैं। पेशे से किसान अली के पहले ही 30 बच्चे हैं और अब वह 31वें बच्चे के पिता बनने जा रहे हैं।
अली की चार पत्नियां हैं और उनकी तीसरी पत्नी मां बनने वाली हैं। वह अपने इस विशाल परिवार से बेहद खुश हैं। अली कहते हैं, "यह सब खुदा का तोहफा है और मैं हमेशा भरा-पूरा परिवार चाहता था। "
यह पूछे जाने पर कि क्या उन्हें अपने सभी बच्चों के नाम याद हैं? अली थोड़ा गुस्सा होकर अपने बच्चों के नाम गिनाना शुरू करते हैं लेकिन 15 बच्चों के नाम गिनाने के बाद वह भूल जाते हैं।
अली कहते हैं कि इस समय भले ही वह नाम भूल गए हों, लेकिन चेहरा देखते ही उन्हें याद आ जाएगा।
अली का सबसे बड़ा बेटा 40 साल का है। अली की चारों पत्नियां उन्हें बेहद जिम्मेदार पति और जिम्मेदार पिता मानती हैं और कहती हैं कि वह सभी बच्चों के साथ एक समान व्यवहार करते हैं।
उनके 15 संतानों की शादियां हो चुकी हैं।
इस पर विद्वत जनों के विशेषत: मुस्लिमों के विचार जानने का आकांक्षी हूं. चार शादियां, तीस बच्चे. निजी कानून की आड़ में क्या यह प्राकृतिक संसाधनों के साथ खिलवाड़ नहीं है, क्या यह महिलाओं के अधिकारों के प्रति धोखाधड़ी जैसा नहीं है. यदि संविधान ने कहीं कोई व्यवस्था की है तो यह उस व्यवस्था के साथ खिलवाड़ नहीं है. कुछ अधिक नहीं लिखना चाहता, कृपया पढ़ें और बतायें.
Donating a body for medical research, as was done after the death of CPI(M) patriarch Jyoti Basu last month, has the sanction of Hindu religion, spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said here today.
"If other body parts are also donated instead of consigning them to flame in usual funerals, there is no harm. The Hindu religion endorses it," he told a press conference.
Asked if Basu, despite being an atheist, was spiritual as he donated his body to serve humanity, the Art of Living guru said he had met Basu once and found him "to be an ardent fan of Swami Vivekananda."
The Kerala Government will set up a departmental enquiry to probe the reported disappearance of original paintings by Raja Ravi Varma, one of the most renowned classical artists of India.
Archana Narayanan, an advocate and the great-grand niece of Varma, alleged that as per records of Kilimanoor Palace (the birth place of Varma) over 75 paintings had been handed over to the government. However, only 55 had been exhibited at the Sri Chitra Art Gallery, based in state capital Thiruvananthapuram, and managed by the Directorate of Museum and Zoo.
Narayanan alleged that some private galleries had openly auctioned the paintings abroad without prior permission from the Archaeological Survey of India.
Most of Varma’’s paintings are based on Hindu epics and stories.
The leaders have not only refused to give up their claims to the site, but also urged the BJP to wait for the court’s verdict on the issue. “We willaccept the court’s verdict, even if we lose. Is the BJP prepared to say the same?” Asaduddin Owaisi, a Lok Sabha MP, asked.
Owaisi’s standhas also been echoed by the likes of Zafaryab Jilani and Syed Shabbuddin, two prominent members of the Babri Masjid Action Committee “There’s no question of giving up our claims on the issue. The matter is before the courts, we should wait for the verdict,” said Jilani.
Mehmood Madani, a Rajya Sabha MP and senior leader of the Jamat Ulema-e-Hind, has been at the forefront of the movement against terrorismamongst Muslims. He refused to be swayed by the BJP’s offer. “Firstof all, no Muslim can barter awaya mosque. Secondly it’s very difficult to trust the BJP and the RSS. After all, they broke their promise to the Supreme Court,” Madani said.
उत्तर प्रदेश में अयोध्या के सन्त धर्माचार्यों ने भारतीय जनता पार्टी के अध्यक्ष नितिन गडकरी के विवादित श्रीराम जन्मभूमि स्थल के पास मस्जिद बनवाने के बयान पर कडा एतराज जताते हुए कहा है कि यहां की चौदहकोसी परिक्रमा परिधि के अन्दर विवादित मस्जिद का निर्माण किसी कीमत पर स्वीकार नहीं किया जायेगा। अखिल भारतीय अखाडा परिषद के अध्यक्ष एवं प्रसिद्ध हनुमानगढी के महन्त बाबा ज्ञान दास ने आज कहा कि भाजपा मन्दिर मुद्दे को राजनीतिक मुद्दा न.न बनाये । उन्होंने कहा कि अयोध्या के विवादित धर्मस्थल पर ही श्रीराम के भव्य मन्दिर का निर्माण होगा । उसके आस पास मस्जिद का निर्माण किसी कीमत पर स्वीकार नहीं किया जायेगा ।
श्रीराम जन्म भूमि न्यास अध्यक्ष महंत नृत्य गोपाल दास के उत्तराधिकारी महंत कमल नयन दास ने कहा कि काशी में विश्वनाथ मंदिर के साथ बनी मस्जिद तथा मथुरा में कृष्ण जन्मभूमि के बगल बनी मस्जिद का परिणाम आज भी हिन्दू समाज भुगत रहा है। उन्होने कहा कि भगवान श्रीराम की जन्म भूमि विश्व में एक ही है। मंदिर एवं मस्जिद कहीं भी बनाये जा सकते हैं। लेकिन यहां पर भगवान श्रीराम का ही भव्य मंदिर बनेगा क्योंकि किसी का जन्म स्थान नहीं बदला जा सकता है।

On going Posco violence between anti and pro Posco activists at trouble torn Gobindpur village has worsened the situation in which anti Posco activists detained woman’s dead body for two days towards cremation.
One Dhruba Sahani and his younger brother Subha Sahani who are considered as the pro Posco supporters have been left the village due to threat of anti Posco activists in which they have been living at Posco transit colony, Badgabpur after leaving their mother Tulasi Sahani, 73 since eight months. Even, anti Posco activists ostracized and protested their entry to this village. They also threatened to kill two brothers if they would enter into this village.
Tulasi Sahani passed away at Gobindpur village on Monday due to lack of proper care and treatment during old age because her two sons were left the village due to threat of anti Posco activists. Every Hindu mother has last hope for the presence of sons during death period to give ‘Mahaprasad Pani’ for salvation. Her two sons Druba and Subha not only failed to give this ‘pani’but protested them to enter in this village for cremation of their mother.
On the other hand, IIC of Kujanga police station Mr Gupteswar Bhoi has informed that no one has yet complained about detention of dead body at Gobinpur village in police station.
China has always been a ‘hard power” it knows that the power on earth is its to grab and the heavens are everybody property. India knows nothing because it has learnt nothing from the Arthashastra – the people (Jana) must be kept happy and then alone the State becomes strong as Chanakhya said so firmly.
Now India is adrift and China’s star on the ascendant. I salute it.
It was a random draw of lots for houses to resettle some 8,000 families but in deeply polarised Gujarat, this computer-generated allotment has had Hindus and Muslims writing to authorities, each community saying they don’t wish to live in an area dominated by the other and, therefore, ‘communally unsafe’. Hindus and Muslims are calling for reallotment of houses in areas where they say they will be secure.
But the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), which went in for a random draw to relocate evacuees of the Sabarmati River Front project under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), doesn’t want to get involved—the AMC says Hindu and Muslim allottees may exchange the allotted homes among themselves if they feel insecure.
The new locations are among the areas which witnessed violence during the 2002 riots. The computer allotted all houses without looking up religions, mixing Hindus and Muslims.
The Muslim evacuees say they want to move to the Muslim-dominated Vatva area while the Hindus want to move to Hindu-held Vadaj. Both sides have approached the AMC top brass, seeking fresh allotment. Petitions have also been sent to the chief minister, seeking his intervention.
