Report from Narain Kataria in
A sort of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s coronation was enacted in
The divine excitement among the all-Hindu crowd gave the unique yearly event a flavor of the re-enactment of original historic event of year 1674, when the Great Shivaji Maharaj proudly declared himself the Hindu King after defeating his Islamic rivals and took the coveted title of “Chhatrapati.”
The scene was a part of the 16th Annual Hindu Sangathan Divas (Hindu Unity Day) which was organized on a grand scale by the Hindu Temple Society of North America and the Indian American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF), in cooperation with several other temple organizations in New York.
Hindus from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal, Guyana, Trinidad, Surinam, Fiji, and many other countries, disregarding their caste, creed, color and region enthusiastically assembled in the grand auditorium to affirm their Hindu identity and celebrate their Hindu heritage. The jubilation of the assembled audience was seen to be believed.
The overall purpose of the event was to instill a feeling of pride and brotherhood in all sections of Hindus… and to create confidence in them that they are second to none. The other purpose was to commemorate the unforgettable coronation of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
The turnout was beyond the expectations. The enthusiasm, dedication and commitment of the audience for Hindutva was seen to be believed. Many of the attendees traveled more than 100 miles to participate in the event emphasizing the pride in their Hindu identity. More than 1000 plus attended the function. The auditorium was full to the capacity and several people had to be disappointed for the lack of space.
The Chief Guest of the occasion was Dr. Subramanian Swamy, former Law Minister Government of
Padma Shri Dr. Sudhir Parikh, a Publisher and Philanthropist; George Subraj, a Caribbean Hindu leader; and Satya Dosapati, the President of the Hindu Human Rights were honored for their services to the Hindu causes. Ramesh Gathoria, a Director of IAIF, spoke about his efforts with the India Government Agencies and the President of country to restore the historic national emblem “Satya Mev Jayate,” which has recently been surreptitiously removed from the government documents and country’s courts.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy delivered a powerful, memorable, and awe-inspiring speech which could only be described as “superb.” During his inspiring speech, there was pin-drop silence as the audience was glued to their seats. They were listening to him with rapt attention. Dr. Swamy enthralled the audience and won their laurels. He was applauded several times by the jubilant crowd. The audience’s utmost dedication, loyalty and commitment to the Hindu cause were clearly evident all around.
Dr. Swamy emphasized that India, as a country, was the most qualified candidate to be considered a world power. Quoting references, Dr. Swamy proclaimed that, just till about 500 years ago,
Dr. Swamy clearly held the
“While USA, Japan and European countries are aging and declining, India’s average age happens to be only 29 years, and 75% of its people are below 35 years of age”, informed Dr. Swamy.
Hindus need to know their true history. On the subject of Indian History, Dr. Swamy said that if the British had not come when we were tied in fighting against Islam, and had not stolen our rocketry weapons technology from our Coromandel coast wars and then replicated them, Marathas (Hindus) would have established a Hindu Rashtra in Hastinapur (the original name of Delhi).
He bluntly rejected the notion that Hindus are timid and weak-willed people. Proving his point, Dr. Swamy said that when Islam emerged from
Referring to the rise of Taliban in our neighborhood, Dr. Swmy said that there is a possibility of attack on our country. In the past, our soldiers won several battles on battlefield but our politicians lost them on negotiation table, all due to our inept political leadership. In a couple of years, one opportunity will present itself; we should be ready to grab it.
Tapan Ghosh said that Hindu society needs the total Hindu solidarity and Kshatriya spirit. He said atrocities are being committed against the Hindus everywhere in
On the other hand, even at the slightest provocation, the shrill, hue, and cry of the Ummah across the globe rents the sky. The government scurries for cover and the media literally froths at the mouth. The need of the hour is the total freedom - from servitude, suppression, subjugation, repression, restraint, and oppression imposed mercilessly and ruthlessly by anti-Hindu forces.
We Hindus have to understand that a society or a community that cannot defend itself against the aggression cannot survive for long. It is the law of nature. Every community needs a sword-arm to protect itself against the aggression, overt or covert. This is what makes the role of a kshatriya or the warrior important in a community and in periods of turmoil and conflict, it is paramount. Hindu society is under attack from every direction and in every manner. The need of the hour is to re-ignite our kshatriya spirit. An eminent scholar Dr. David Frawley has said correctly that Hindu society needs intellectual kshatriyas to do battle with the nefarious and malignant assault of the communist dominated media and academia against the Hindu faith.
Tapan Ghosh deplored media-State nexus in
