Hindu Unity Day in New York – A Historic success; Resolved to move forward unitedly

published on October 12, 2013

The 19th Hindu Unity Day (Hindu Sangathan Divas) was celebrated  with pomp, position, dignity, enthusiasm  and grandeur at the banquet Hall of “The Sterling” in New York on September 29th.
Two top Hindu stalwarts from our Punya Bhoomi Bharat:  (i) Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev; and (ii) Dr. Subramanian Swamy, a senior leader of BJP, who have been spearheading the movement for reunification and consolidation of Hindu Society all over the world  along with several community leaders blessed and addressed the gathering.
Hindu Unity Day is celebrated every year in New York in commemoration of the coronation of Ch. Shivaji Maharaj, the Hindu warrior king who, after demolishing Islamic domination, established Hindu kingdom in India in 1674.
At the end of the day, the Event proved to be fabulously stunning.  The performance of Baba Ramdev and Dr. Swamy, to say the least was,  not only astounding but also mesmerizing.  Unbelievably  it was a  memorable and splendid show which New York might not have seen ever before.
The general mood of public and the atmosphere in the banquet hall  was simply electrifying.  The manner in which Hindus from India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Trinidad, Guyana and different states of India expressed their solidarity was highly inspiring. The energetic spirit of attendees who freely mingled with one another irrespective of the distinctions of caste, creed, color, language, gender and nationality  shattered the myth and debunked the obnoxious theories propounded by the prophets of doom that Hindus cannot be united.
The speeches from the speakers were thought provoking, and the patriotic songs were uplifting and reinvigorating.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy, a true personification of the leadership qualities like courage, fearlessness and perseverance was the Keynote Speaker.  In his brilliant speech, Dr. Swamy time and again, so enthralled the audience with his forceful narration and outstanding arguments in support of the Hindu unity, that he received a frequent ovation from the audience.
Dr. Swamy projected that BJP along with its allies Shiv Sena and Akali Dal will gain absolute majority in India in 2014 elections.   About Pakistan he said that Pakistan could be tackled easily if we can neutralize China.  Talking about Rahul Gandhi,  Swamy expressed doubts about his political and mental competence.  Swamy also hailed the asset India has in the form of youngest population (average age 27 years).  Both on economy and electoral fortunes he actually turned the tables and placed the blame where it in reality belonged.  As always he was a magnet for political thinkers.
Wow!  Baba Ram Dev Ji was at his best in tearing apart the three musketeers of the “mafia regime” Sonia, Manmohan and Rahul with utmost civility and gentle manner. The Baba said that with Modi as Prime Ministerial candidate, the BJP will get close to 300 seats.  He predicted that the BJP will have a cakewalk in the 2014 election.  After the elections, Congress Party will dismember, finally fulfilling the wish of Mahatma Gandhi.  “I will myself go to every nook and corner of the country to work for the victory of Narendra Modi and BJP.  His oratory, humor, confident skill at effective delivery and spacing were an inescapable part of his master craft.
The other distinguished speakers were  Mahamandaleshwar Swami Harishchandra Puri chief priest of Shiv Shakti Peeth temple  in Queens, New York; Dr Amrit Nehru,  one of the senior most Kashmiri Hindu activists;  Dr. Narinder Kukar, an outstanding physician, a statesman and a winner of several awards; Devendra Singh, Founder President of Hindi-USA; M.R. Venkatesh, the  author of several books, including  “Dr. Manmohan Singh – A DECADE OF DECAY.”; Ramabhadra Dasa –  President of ISKCON in New York;  and Swami Radeswarananda , spiritual disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj-ji of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan,
Earlier welcoming the audience, Narain Kataria, President of IAIF, said that  the feeling of brotherhood and patriotism unleashed by this Event will go a long way in further revitalizing and reenergizing  Hindu Samaj.    It is also a matter of great satisfaction that one billion Hindus have finally recognized the importance of Hindu Unity,  the idea whose time has come.  They are on the march.   They are not going to stop now till the goal is reached.
Arish Sahani, Vice President, IAIF proposed a vote of thanks
