Veer Savarkar : Tribute to A Freedom Fighter,A Real Hero & A Great Patriot .

Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, commonly known as Swatantryaveer Savarkar was a fearless freedom fighter, social reformer, writer, dramatist, poet, historian, political leader and philosopher. He remains largely unknown to the masses because of the vicious propaganda against him and misunderstanding around him that has been created over several decades. This  attempt is to bring the life, thought, actions and relevance of Veer Savarkar before a global audience.

Yes Love can do no harm to culture but commercialisation of Love can.

Interestingly this year there is not much celebrations of Valentines Day on Hyderabad streets. VHP & Bajrang Dal counsellings have worked. Only those people who flaunt Western Culture were seen celebrating , that to ONLY on FB's & other social Media. Glad that we got rid of this devilish commercialised festival.

Even  Shopping Malls and other Commercial establishments in Hyderabad too have almost stayed away from flaunting Valentine messages . Atlast, they understood that there are better ways and 364 more days in a calendar year to sell ones products than luring youth in corrupt way. I see big change in the youth as well , the only tribe , yet to change is English speaking self styled Intellectuals , whose Heart & Souls have been Harvested.
Today is Vasant Panchami a Hindu festival where Saraswati Mata and Mother Nature are worshiped by Hindu's . I was just wondering how many of "Valentine Day" celebrators are celebrating this. If the festi' had been an Western/Christian festival then FB timeline by now wud have choked with "Happy Vansant Panchami" messages. Double Standards. Can only sympathise with these Phony-Liberals & English speaking Intellectuals.
We are not against Love . Let Love blossom . Love can do no harm to the society or culture, but do not commercialise the LOVE for filling your pockets.

What is the harm in celebrating 'Valentine's Day' ?

  1. There is no scientific or cultural basis to celebrating this day.
  2. The fact is that in many western countries 'Valentine's Day' is not celebrated at all.
  3. On this day young girls and boys come together at pubs, sea shores, hotels, colleges etc and indulge in indecent acts. A common person finds it difficult to even go around such places at this time. Some organisations organize such programs where the young boys and girls can stay together.
  4. The young students of schools and colleges are falling prey to this alien cultural influence and express their 'love' for each other by way of exchanging greeting cards. In reality what they experience at this tender and immature age is not love but a mere superficial attraction to the opposite sex.
  5. Psychiatrists can site several cases of people who have 'proposed' on 'Valentine's day' due to various shades of mental turmoil. Women who have been duped or lured by them and have married them have had to suffer great mental and physical torture.
  6. This practice is damaging as it results in a long lasting negative effect on any youth's career and also on society.
  7. The seeds of immorality which are planted on this day, later cause the destabilization of society through a general fall in morality.
  8. We can recognize a direct attack from an enemy outside but this cultural invasion is insidious and very difficult to recognize and so it is difficult to defend ourselves from its evil results.
  9. Cultural derailment always results in society heading towards destruction. This is what we are experiencing today in our Bharat (India).
  10. Many western countries do not celebrate this day. The Calendar of Roman Catholic Saints' was prepared in 1969, 'Valentines Day' was omitted from the general Roman calendar. If this is so, then why should we honour this day in our Hindustan?
  11. Western culture provides for placing parents in 'old age homes' and then superficially celebrates Mother's Day' and Father's Day' for just one day ! Can real love be limited to just a day ? Indian culture has a number of festivals that express love towards each other and these deep rooted bonds of love are an intrinsic part of our lifestyle.

Telangana Issue a Joke for Home Minister Shinde ??

Yesterday Morning a source of mine informed me of some 'chirp' comments can be expected from Home Minister Shinde during 4PM press Conf. He further added that there's lot of 'hullabaloo' happening with Media OB Vans queuing up. He also said that Home Minister Shinde wud shreek something on Telangana issue. His Press Conf was scheduled at 4PM. Around 1:20  I tweeted about the Presser quoting my source.

I got bit curious when my source alerted me of the Shindes Press Conf . I pressed to check with my source again and again to know if there is going to be any Statehood announcement from Shinde. He was noncommittal , expressed his helplessness. But he was sure of that Shinde is going to comment something Imp on Telangana issue. It seems most of the Sr Journos had this info , Ministry deliberately leaked the Info selectively. My source cautioned me time and again that it cud be either Good or Painful news and asked me to be ready for any.

My Source was right exactly at 4-PM Shinde addressed the Press Conference. As part of the "Script" one stooge Journo raised Telangana issue with Laughs in a cajoling way. Hearing Journos Q on Telangana , insensitive Home Minister Shinde and his stooges present in the Hall break into Wicked Laughter. Let Delhi laugh as much as it can , people of Telangana has now resolved to overthrow the regime and bury these insensitive ruling class deep inside the ground. So Deep, that their resurrection will be an impossible.

It looks like Telangana statehood has become Joke for the Delhi Ruling class. We elected these Rulers to address our grievances, but they see Humour in our sufferings and Laugh publicly at our Plight. Wud Shinde has laughed if the issue was related to Kashmir ???

We Telangana natives are fighting for our"sellf rule" for last 60 years. In last 3 years 1000+ students have sacrificed their Lives for that formation of Telangana state. Shinde with his Wicked Laughs have insulted their Martyrdom . With his deliberate idiotic humours act Shinde has brought disgrace to the chair. Prime Minister should take action against incumbent Minister for insulting 4 crore Telangana natives.
