USA imports caste-virus in senate
In an uncivilised course, worlds powerful democracy has taken unqualified decision to chant Vedic chants during Opening Day of the Senate.
Vedas , Core to Hinduism and birth point of caste system’ impressed intelligent American politicians in 21st Century so much that they discounted it’s terrible nuisance and allowed it to be sung in Public domain that Founders of America would feel shame of. Per say Vedic hymns directly propound policy of unequal society and ideals through Cardinal Purush Sukta, essential part of Rig Veda. The society construct it catapults, is as shown in a pyramid as below. Humans are divided by birth and the role they get is for eternity…Son of Shudra would behave like Shundra, he should not read or write as he takes birth from impure genital called ‘Papa-yoni’ in Sanskrit.
Pic01: Rig Veda foundation of caste system . (report in Indian Daily .)
In Vedic primitive culture, history tells, it was religious to have associated human sacrifices . Vedic hinduism has left evil consequences for Indian social life even today.
The dreadful product in the form of caste system wherein humans are treated lesser than animals if they are ‘untouchables’ or SHudras. US senate is unknowingly become party to such inhuman practices. Such an act dearly risks democratic values of liberty, equality and fraternity in USA public life so painstakingly architected by fathers of USA`s constitution.
After two centuries- Compared to India , American democracy looks quite pale. With its very secular and scientific mandate, Indian constitution stands confident as it would never give precedence to brahminic/ Vedic hymns in parliamentary schedules.
With such stance, USA Senate members might be appeasing affluent Indian Hindu working class in America . But alongside they are giving world democracies a lesson how the irresponsible senate members can take Senate Houses for ride so easily. Question arises: Is US Democracy fueled by money(Capital) or by values (Equity)?
If it’s true; then America is bound to face yet another revolution. No one knows, how many to die again?
Lets not get driven by what America does, let’s get Indian Silent revolution running in every Global mind. In short the evolution is summed up in few words…. “struggle for reclamation of entire human personality by overcoming barriers (of prejudices, violence, money and religion)”.
