” A Gutter Inspector’s Report’ – Letter to TNIE

via H.Balakrishnan published on February 24, 2008

DEAR SIR, Reference the ‘gutter inspector’, ‘Georgie-Porgie Pudding and Pie’s”, ‘Give us this day our Sabbath bread’ – “ God, Karunanidhi – and pre – Brahmin glory”  – (TNSE-24 FEB).

Our ‘gutter inspector’s’ predilection towards Hindu baiting is well known over the years, and there are too many instances in my archives to bear repetition here. After all, it is this despicable homo sapien, who after the Malegaon blasts had hinted at ‘unbearded variety of terrorists’!! They all follow a pattern, that has been succinctly brought out by George Thundiparambil in his perceptive essay, “Who is afraid of the Hindu nation?”. He wrote, “ For Indians who are aware of the anti-hindu agendas of Christian, Islamic and Communist organizations in India and abroad, it is neither shocking nor surprising that numerous NGOs have sprung up throughout the country, which act as sole agents for these aliens and hostile organizations”. He further added: “ Start your career by unleashing a tirade against Hindus and Hindu civilization. In order to become successful as a mercenary, start an NGO and visit the USA and tell the Christian fundamentalists there what they want to hear: how evil and backward the unconverted, pagan Hindus are. The password is ‘Anti-Hindu’.” Fits our ‘gutter inspector to the proverbial ‘T’!!Also, I wonder where our Quisling went ‘begging’ for the ‘Greenbacks’?( REF: “ NGOs, Activists and Foreign Funds – Anti-Nation Industry” – pp 286, 291).

The ‘Chritian fundamentalist gutter inspector’ waxes eloquent about EVR and his movement. These were the worthies who wanted the ‘Raj’ to continue and contributed ‘ZILCH’ to our Freedom Struggle. Only a guttersnipe will find virtue in such worthies!!

Our baiter then goes on to state, in his Sabbath diatribe ‘after all, the far more powerful Jaina- Buddhist philosophies were overwhelmed too’. Implied here is that Vedic civilization did in the Buddhist-Jaina philosophies!! History tells us otherwise. Swami Vivekananda tells us about Buddhism :

“ It became a mass of corruption of which I cannot speak before the audience – -, I have neither the time nor the inclination to describe to you the hideousness that came in the wake of Buddhism. The most hideous ceremonies, the most horrible, the most obscene books that human hands ever wrote or the human brain ever conceived, the most bestial forms that ever passed under the name of religion, have all been the creation of degraded Buddhism – -“.( REF: “Swami Vivekananda – Collected Works – Vol 3 – pp 265).

Sri Aurobindo alludes to another factor, an inherent incompatibility. He wrote: “ – – the exclusive trenchancy of its [ Buddhism ] intellectual, ethical and spiritual positions – – its trenchant affirmations and still more exclusive negations could not be made sufficiently compatible with the native flexibility, many-sided susceptibility and rich synthetic turn of the Indian religious consciousness; it was high creed but not plastic enough to hold the heart of the people”.(REF: “Sri Aurobindo: The Foundations of Indian Culture” – 1968 – pp 75, 160-161, 192-193). Add to this the ‘Sword of Islam’ and History tells us the reasons for the demise of Buddhism in Bharat. And yet, to our Hindu baiter, in tune with the ‘Colonial Harvesters’ writings, these were ‘highly evolved philosophies’!!

Our gutter inspector wants the readers to believe ‘One sought to elevate common people to higher social-spiritual levels through education; the other prescribed that the lower orders should not be exposed to learning’. EUREKA!!

Our Hindu baiter will certainly be ignorant of (late) Shri Dharampal, the well known Gandhian and historian of Indian Science. He has given a detailed accounts of the extensive indigenous system of education that was thriving in India before the British came in his famous book, The Beautiful Tree. Dharampal’s account is based on the British Collector’s reports when they came to India and were asked to report on state of the indigenous education. The most well-known and decisive point, which emerged from the educational surveys, lies in an examination made by William Adam. He, in his observations found that there existed about 1,00,000 village schools in Bengal and Bihar around the 1830s. Men like Thomas Munro, had observed that ‘every village had a school’. Observations made by Dr. G.W.Leitner in 1882 show that the spread of education in the Punjab around 1850 was of a similar extent. At about the same time, England had very few schools for the children of ordinary people till about 1800, and many of the older grammar school were in poor state. According to this hard data, in terms of the content, the proportion of those attending institutional school education in India in 1800 is certainly not inferior to what obtained in England then; and in many respects Indian schooling seems to have been much more extensive. The content of studies was better in India than in England. The method of school teaching was superior in India at that time. The school attendance, especially in the district of Madras Presidency, even in the decayed state of the period 1822-25, was proportionately far higher than the numbers in all variety of schools in England in 1800.

As an example, the government of Madras presidency completed a survey of Indian educational institutions in 1823-24. After that it came to be known that despite the poverty and disturbance, there were about 13,000 schools and 740 colleges under the presidency. According to this survey the original number of students in school and colleges were 1,88,650 out of which 42,502 were Brahmans and 85,400 were from the castes known as Shudras. The remaining were Vaishya, Mohammedan and from other Hindu castes. The numbers of girls were only 4540, but according to the report this lesser number of girls as alleged was mainly due to the prevalence of home education of girls. But the number of Mohammedan girl students in Malabar district was very large. The number of girl students there was 1,122 and for boy students 3196. ‘Lower orders should not be exposed to learning’ eh? Any wonder then Mahatma Gandhiji stated at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, London, in Oct 1931: “Today India is more illiterate than it was fifty or hundred years ago.”

Now our Quisling in profound wisdom states: ‘There are researchers who point to Buddhist and Jain temples that were either destroyed or built over during an era of resurgent Brahminism’. He doesn’t tell who the ‘researchers’ are!! They are WELL KNOWN. I’ll name them – Padma Bhushan Romila Thapar, Padma Bhushan Irfan Habib, R.S. Sharma, Bipan Chandra, Satish Chandra, Harbans Singh Mukhia et al. All ‘products’ of that ‘School for Scoundrels’ that goes by the name of ‘Jawaharlal Nehru University’!! When challenged on their ‘you scratch my back, I scratch yours’ findings, these ‘Eminent Historians’ suddenly discovered the virtues of silence. In his ‘bare the Quislings’ masterpiece – “Eminent Historians: Their Technology, Their Line, THEIR FRAUD”, (pp 99), Arun Shourie wrote: “ But today, the fashion is to ascribe the extinction of Buddhism to the persecution of Buddhists by Hindus, to the destruction of their temples by the Hindus. One point is that the Marxist historians who have been perpetrating this falsehood have not been able to produce even an iota of evidence to substantiate the concoction. In one typical instance, Romila Thapar had cited THREE inscriptions. The indefatigable Sita Ram Goel looked them up. Two of these turned out to have absolutely no connection with Buddhist VIHARAS or their destruction, and the one that did deal with an object being destroyed had been held by authorities to have been a concoction.” Q.E.D.!! So much for the ‘RESEARCHERS’. ‘LIARS INC’!!

As if this was not enough, our gutter inspector, next throws his glance towards the ‘Aryan Invasion Theory’. His ignorance is appalling, to say the least. The ‘Eminent Historians’ have already backtracked from the ‘Invasion’ to ‘Migration’. We await the day for their grandiose discovery of the ‘Tourism Theory’!! Be that as it may, the BBC has debunked the Aryan Invasion Theory, a few years ago. Its salient findings were: ‘The theory was not just wrong, some say, but included unacceptably racist ideas:

• it suggested that Indian culture was not a culture in its own right, but a synthesis of elements from other cultures

• it implied that Hinduism was not an authentically Indian religion but the result of cultural imperialism

• it suggested that Indian culture was static, and only changed under outside influences

• it suggested that the dark-skinned Dravidian people of the South of India had got their faith from light-skinned Aryan invaders • it implied that indigenous people were incapable of creatively developing their faith

• it suggested that indigenous peoples could only acquire new religious and cultural ideas from other races, by invasion or other processes

• it accepted that race was a biologically based concept (rather than, at least in part, a social construct) that provided a sensible way of ranking people in a hierarchy, which provided a partial basis for the caste system

• it provided a basis for racism in the Imperial context by suggesting that the peoples of Northern India were descended from invaders from Europe and so racially closer to the British Raj

• it gave a historical precedent to justify the role and status of the British Raj, who could argue that they were transforming India for the better in the same way that the Aryans had done thousands of years earlier

• it downgraded the intellectual status of India and its people by giving a falsely late date to elements of Indian science and culture And, our ‘gutter inspector’ wants to perpetuate a Theory that has been dead, buried and gone. So much for intellectualism in Indian journalism!! Any wonder then, journalism in India has all but lost its credibility.

As for our polemicists diatribe against the so-called ‘Brahminism’, it follows in letter and spirit the writings of the ‘Colonial Harvesters of Souls’. Robert Caldwell, the Bishop of Tirunelveli, for example!! In his well researched treatise “ Sarasvati River and the Vedic Civilization: History, Science and Politics”, Dr. N.S. Rajaram (an OBC in today’s nomenclature), wrote (pp 56-57): “ Christian propagandists like Caldwell were unhappy that they could get converts only from the lower strata of Hindu society. Regardless of internal divisions, all segments of Hindu society – and many Muslims as well – looked to the Brahmins for moral and intellectual guidance. Caldwell and his fellow missionaries saw Brahmins as the greatest obstacle to their program. So they attacked Brahmins in the most venomous language as oppressors of society. THIS IS STILL THE CASE. The idea was to turn the people against those who were seen as preservers and perpetuators of Hindu culture and tradition. The idea of dividing a conquered people and creating antagonisms was STANDARD MISSIONAY TACTIC’.” Q.E.D.

In stark contrast to our unlettered gutter inspector, here are quotes from internationally renowned and ‘cultured’ human beings, on our Vedic civilization.

Mark Twain, American author: ” India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.”

Romain Rolland, French scholar : If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.”

Will Durant, American historian: ” India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all”.

For our Quisling, here is the concluding part of Sri Aurobindo’s famous speech at Uttarpara on 30 May 1909:” I say no longer that nationalism is a creed, a religion, a faith; I say that it is the Sanatan Dharma which for us is nationalism. This Hindu nation was born with the Sanatan Dharma, with it it moves and with it it grows. When the Sanatan Dharma declines, then the nation declines, and if the Sanatan Dharma were capable of perishing, with the Sanatan Dharma it would perish. The Sanatan Dharma, that is nationalism. This is the message that I have to speak to you.”

In conclusion, I have no hesitations in stating that TJS George is a mentally deranged Hindu baiter. He is in urgent need of visiting a shrink. I recommend permanent interning of this Quisling at the NIMHANS, Bengaluru. The gloves are off from today.

Thank you TNIE for ruining my morning cuppa. Cheers.
