Integral Education - Part III Swami Vivekananda education concept is need of the hour.

Vidya dadati vinayam,
vinaya dadati paatrataam,
paatratva dhanamaapnoti,
dhanaat dharmam tatatsukham

(Education gives humility,
humility gives Character,
from character one gets wealth,
from wealth one gets righteousness,
in righteousness there is joy.)

Nowadays there is a good deal of talk about 'values' and 'value education'. In India the terms 'values' is most commonly used in the sense of 'virtues' or 'morals'. Since morals are associated with religion, many educationists want to avoid the use of the terms moral and virtues and replace it with the word"value'.

The important point to note here is that any change in education becomes effective only if it is rooted in realisation of student. Simply introducing some 'values' into the curriculum and making students to learn it for exams will not be effective. Without an orientation, values will also remain nothing more than code of conduct which student might not follow in private life

In the first place values or virtue should not be followed out of fear or compulsion . Student must be made to understand that the path of virtue he has to take will make him an 'Ultimate Human Being'. When a student links values he learn to his true nature then his life becomes real and authentic. Value education should be inculcated in real life. If student fail to imbibe virtue to his own nature then entire exercise might end up as an mere show off to the expectations of others.

Islamisation of Telangana by Nizam supporter KCR

It was 12:30 Midnight and i was still awake coz Muslims are conducting religious meeting using horn mic's at this hour in my neighbourhood. FYI I live in new city of Hyderabad .

I called Police control room around 10:45 PM and raised the complaint . Police Officer after understanding its complaint against Muslims tells me that its falls under "Sound Pollution" and I shud call them ONLY after 11:00 PM.

I called after 11:00 PM and raised the complaint of high sound pollution again, he has no other option to avoid me , told me they will look into my complaint.

Later Police officer called me around 11:40 and tries to convince me that they (Police) can not stop Muslin meetings coz as it will take communal angle. He was trying to convince me that Muslims will not listen and easily gets provoked and I shudnt force them to stop this midnight Muslim religious  meeting.

I asked the Police Officer then why do you close down Ganesh Mandaps around 10:00 PM and allow Muslims to use horn mics even after midnight and disturb Hindu neighbourhood.

These Midnight meetings earlier were common ONLY in HYD old city where Muslims were in big number. But after KCR has become Chief Minister , the Islamic fanaticism has spread to HYD new city . The fear of Muslims in Telangana is such that even Police are scared to handle them. This is the price we Hindus have to pay for voting KCR.

Telangana  fastly becoming highly Islamised state in India , coz of unprecedented support they get from KCR.

ప్రజల సొమ్ముతో హైదరాబాద్ పొలిసు కమిషనర్ ఇఫ్తార్ విందులా ?

రంజాన్ మాసంలో నిజమైన ధనిక ముస్లింలు నిరుపేద ముస్లింలను ఇంటికి పిలిచి రకరకాల వంటకాలతో వారి ఆకలిని తీర్చి వారికి కూడా పండుగ అనుభూతిని కల్పించడం ఇఫ్తార్ విందుల సారాంశం అది ముస్లిం మత ఆచారం.

పొలిసు కమిషనర్ గారు వ్యక్తిగతంగా నిజమైన నిరుపేద ముస్లింలకు ఇఫ్తార్ విందు ఇచ్చివుంటే హర్షించేవారము కానీ హైదరాబాద్ నగర్ పొలిసు విభాగం ద్వార అధికారికంగా ఒక మతపరమైన కార్యక్రమాన్ని నిర్వహించడం ఎంతవరకు సమంజసం ? పొలిసు కమిషనర్ గారు రాజకీయ నాయకుల వలె ప్రవర్తించడం వ్యవస్థపై వున్న గౌరవానికి మచ్చ కాదా ? ప్రభుత్వ నిధుల నుండి ఈ రకంగా మతపరమైన విందులు ఇచ్చే అధికారం పొలిసు కమిషనర్ గారికి వుందా ? వుంటే మెజారిటీ ప్రజలైన హిందువులు జరుపుకొనే పండగలకు ఎందుకు కార్యక్రమాలు ఏర్పాటు చేయరు ?

నగరంలో ఎంతో ప్రతిష్టాత్మకంగా జరిగే బొనాలలొ కానీ గణేష్ ఉత్సవాలలో కానీ కాషాయపు టోపీ దరించి నుదిట కుంకుమ తిలకం పెట్టుకోవడానికి వీరికి అడ్డువచ్చే సెక్యులరిజం ఇప్పుడేమైంది ?

అన్ని మతాలను సమదృష్టితో చూడటమే నిజమైన సెక్యులరిజం అని చెబుతుంది మన రాజ్యాంగం ,మన రాజకీయ నాయకులు ఓట్ల వేటలో ఎప్పుడో దాని అర్థాన్ని మార్చివేశారు ,రాజ్యాంగ పరిరక్షణకై లాటీలు పట్టిన పోలీసులు నిజమైన స్పూర్తికి విరుద్దంగా ప్రవర్తిస్తే దేశం మరోసారి భారి మూల్యం చెల్లించుకోవాల్సి వస్తుంది . పౌర సమాజం కూడా నిర్భయంగా ఇలాంటి పోకడలను ప్రశ్నించాలి అప్పుడే ఎవరి హద్దుల్లో వారు వుంటారు.
