Women in Hindu Dharma - Part V. Importance of family system.

Male chauvinism and Feminism are both harmful for harmonious existence of family system . The art of Male & Female relationship should not be weighed under the equal rights nor on economic freedom of Women. Where as Mutual understanding , dignity and responsibility will alone save the gender conflict that we often see among newly wedded couples. Strengthen ones relationship with trust and reciprocate the feeling, this alone will save the family system.

Bharateeya women especially the younger ones are in dilemma whether to follow the fashionable inherently failing Western model or the subtle but silently succeeding Bharateeya model. Often, Women are carried away by vociferous advocated of womens Lib's, now find themselves at cross roads - whether to earn for Rights or earn Reverence , whether to be Liberated or to be Venerated.

The sacred bond of Man & Woman has come under considerable strain bringing its wake, several aberrations. Along with class conflict, caste prejudice, communal bigotry, we have gender war going on . There is male chauvinism, now encountered by female chauvinism.

The pious relationship has been subjected to an un-healthy debate verging on vulgarity, to say the least. involved. The Media and pseudo social reformers are having a hayday inciting one against the other with no personal stakes

Not all Women are innocent, Not all Men are violent. The Gender war is not in the interest of Family. The gender equality can be addressed through traditional family values prevalent to changes by the present social condition. Mother Nature has defined the roles for men & women, let abide by it with current societal changes. One has to remember that it’s the Family that holds the society, if family is tampered upon with brutal assault of gender liberation then there might not be any society nor any values. Let not our intelligence get clouded in Male or Female chauvinism. May good sense prevail and harmony in families flourish.

Emi Sethura Linga ? : "Tatvalu"

Emi Sethura Linga ??? From legendary Sri M.Bala Murali Krishana's "Tatvaalu". This one is an soul stirring poetry, with an deeper philosophical meaning. Do listen to his other songs from 'Tatvaalu'.
Grief of an devotee wonderfully expressed in the poetry, where in devotee expresses his helplessness in finding something pure ( which has not been tasted/defiled by other creatures) to do "Linga Abhishekam" .

Wot a song !

Book Review : Bhagavad Gita for Modern Life

Bhagavad Gita is a timeless book i.e. it is relevant across time. Yes, it needs to be interpreted again and again according to the need of time. Balgangadhar Tilak did it for his time. Osho did as per need of his time.

Today, in the age of fast food, the youngest nation focusing on one of the biggest ever skill development program needed another interpretation of Bhagavad Gita. Satish Modh’s book Discover The Arjuna In You fulfils this need.

The book has 18 chapters on the line of Bhagavad Gita with examples from Bharatiya tradition as a case study. Small chapters, lucid language make the book delight to read.

The best part of the book is its foundation. It is not a book based on theory alone. Satish Modh has developed a personality indicator based on the Guna concept of Bhagvad Gita and has tested it on thousands of individuals. The book has impact of this study and it makes it more worthy.

Satish Modh, with a PhD in Strategy has wide experience in the corporate world as well as in the teaching profession at the premium institutes of Bharat. The learnings’ from both are clearly reflected in the structuring of chapters and overall book. Each chapter comes with “Action Plan”, which acts as a guide to the layman. It is a ‘must read’ for anyone who is lost in the fight of survival and is looking for a purpose in the life. After all Arjuna’s life was full of struggle but he had never lost his focus.
