    It is a testament to Deendayal Upadhyaya’s foresight that much of what he suggested fifty years ago may seem unsurprising to many since it is now part of the established discourse of Hindutva. His four lectures on Integral Humanism sought to examine existing socio-political and economic ideas and systems and posit an alternative mode of living based on the traditions of Sanatana Dharma.

    Indian Census 2011 – Alarming Signs

    The Hindu population is now officially below 80% nationally as per the census. If we consider the undeclared Christian population to it, ( those who enjoy Hindu reservation benefits but practise Christianity), the numbers would be further lower to this. For those wondering why a reduced Hindu population should be a matter of concern, recall the words of Dr.Annie Beasant.... In 4 states, Muslim population ha ...

    Bombs and missiles on the one hand with veena and Gita on the other

    We have often asked ourselves and others why India in its several thousand years of history has rarely tried to expand its territories or to assume a dominant role.

    Revival of Rashtriya Utsavs – The Antidote for Commercialization of Culture

    From the Vedic period to contemporary history, we find great seers and scholars articulating the fact about how and why this is one nation. However, in his maiden speech on Independence Day 1947, Pt.Nehru said India i.e. Bharat is a Nation in the making. By this he meant that we have not been One nation in the past. This has been the policy since then. Nehru’s own contemporaries like Sri Aurobindo & Sri ...

    I read Mr Julio Ribeiro’s article ‘I feel I am on a hit list’ published in Indian Express (dated 16th March). I did not react immediately because I wanted to let it sink and see if there was any foundation in what he stated. To me, who’s 78 years old, the whole accusation of his seems to have no foundation.

    “If I had power and could legislate, the first thing I would ban, is conversions.” —Mahatma Gandhi 

    Conversion as an issue has been haunting the Country since long and just because Sangh is the only organisation that has been speaking about it, keeping the larger national interest in perspective, it will not be fair to lampoon its views as it is not to the liking of the votaries. “If I had power and could legislate, the first thing I would ban, is conversions.” —Mahatma Gandhi It is likely that the reader ...
