  • The Belief & Consciousness

    Belief, What is it?? Are we conscious, about it, or it's practice??? Religion or culture, custom, ritual, nature, or else the way of living, why do we practice life, in certain forms and beliefs?? Isn't it nothing but the blind faith?? unquestioned and unexplored way of living?? We are taught, We are made to believe, why are we conditioned, in a certain way, in a certain belief. Shouldn't it be universal, To unite everyone?? Why are there different beliefs, why are there differences?? Is there any free will, in the belief, we practice? Why we aren't allowed to question?? Why is there no reasoning?? There is a difference, between belief and what we believe, belief is free from the reasons, but a reason is to be found for believing something. We need to learn to be conscious, about what we believe, about the beliefs, for the mind to be free. The Belief & Consciousness Usually, belief is generalized as a religious term/faith, or a moral opinion of acceptance or rejection of something, but in the end, there is no reason or truth behind the belief rather than the interest of a certain society. There are beliefs in name of religions, customs, rituals, even we have a belief in nature, but is there a need for such beliefs? Aren't we conditioned to believe anything or everything in a certain way? It's not about religion, it's about day-to-day life, what we practice, what we celebrate, the way we live, what we believe, what we think. Aren't we controlled by those beliefs? We say we are free, we are independent, but are our choices for ourselves? Why do we care about the thoughts of people in society? Though being individuals, are we really individuals? If we don't have questions, will we be conscious about the beliefs, about our own life? Beliefs are practiced unintentionally, unknowingly, by many because of the way we are taught to live, and thus we have never questioned, and have never been conscious, aware of it. We never morally analyze our thoughts, actions, or belief. Isn't belief the root cause of our thinking and mindset? There is a reason why there are crimes, why there is inequality or discrimination. We are not aware of its practice in society, patriarchy, religion, politics, sexuality, or even in our own behavior because of the sets of beliefs that exist in society. Do we need to morally correct ourselves on basis of the beliefs? Cannot we morally correct ourselves on our own? I feel there are three sets of choices people can have when I think about this topic. The first set is to have a belief of existence/non-existence of something or belief of something right/wrong which can be practiced forever in their life without questioning. The second set of choices is to have belief in existence/non-existence, right/wrong about something, but with a tendency to reason, and question unless the truth is found. The third set of choice is to not care about beliefs, just survive and care about nothing. What is morally right, what is the middle path, what will be your choice? Thank You for reading.

  • The Pioneers of Education

    Education, Isn't it so easy to get??? Ever wonder?? What were the struggles, behind the education we get??? What was the history of education?? Was it really easy, to get the education??? why we haven't been taught the reality? why we haven't been taught the whole truth?? Though being the land of Nalanda, Takshashila, Though being the land of Buddha, Education was denied to the women, Education was denied to shudras and atishudras... They were punished, They were discriminated, With no education, They were just puppets or were nothing, they had no existence in the so called system. Britishers invaded, Things changed quiet a little, They too were problematic, But they brought the missionaries. There was still no space, for women, shudra, atishudras in our own system, Yet the missionaries were welcoming, Jyotiba got educated, through one of the missionaries, He himself taught Sau, and skilled her in teaching . Sau just being 17 years old, she started the first school, first for the girls, then for shudras and atishudras too, We had our first own school, For the women, For the downtrodden, For the deprived. Schools after schools, then hostels too, free education to women, shudras, atishudras was their mission, was their life. Their spark, their energy, was pushed down, was suppressed by the upper castes, by the brahmins, Imagine, if they had stopped What would today's society be like?? They sparked the revolution, Which was continued by Shahu, Ambedkar and many, They are the reason Why not just women, But shudras, atishudras Had the freedom to get education, in the society. Jyotiba was the lamp, he was the guide Sau was the light, the teacher So does Fatima with them, as associate teacher They enlightened the darkest skies. We have forgotten their power, We have forgotten their mission, We have failed to realize, They are the pioneer, Pioneers of the education. To the fair education system. The Pioneers of Education What importance do you feel about Sau, Jyotiba and Fatima?? Just merely social reformers?? Their contribution to the society is far much greater if we really understand the struggles they had to face in their daily life. Are you even a little thankful?? Should only girls/women be thankful?? I want to highlight few important things, which we miss to realize. Yes, Savitri Bai is the first teacher, she started the first school for girls, but she also taught the first batch of shudras and atishudras. Haven't we labelled her just the teacher for girls because she is a woman??? Haven't we ignored the reality that shudras, atishudras too had no right to get educated??Savitri Bai was the first woman who took the initiative to teach all of them. 70% of Indian society had no right, Savitri Bai, Jyotiba, Fatima their struggles took the first step, they were the light, they were the pioneers of education. Today not just women but Sc, St, Obc too owe the respect to the pioneers of education. I remember, when few years back I used to think why S. Radhakrishnan's birth anniversary is celebrated as Teacher's day, what I found out was shocking. His birthday isn't celebrated as teacher's day because of his contribution to the society... When he became the President of India, some of his students and friends requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, 5 September. He replied, 'Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if 5 September is observed as Teachers' Day.' His birthday has since been celebrated as Teachers' Day in India. We celebrate teacher's day on 5th September because he wanted to, it was his desire, not because of his contributions to the society. On other hand the pioneer of education in our society are just celebrated by the bahujan's (SC, ST, OBC) for the namesake. The bahujans are divided too, everyone has their love and respect for SavitriBai, some celebrate it as Teahcer's Day, some as Education day. It really doesn't matter what name you give to the celebration, what matters is how you give them respect, how you thank them, how you show gratitude towards what you own now, who you are today. Learn to question, learn to find the truth out, learn to accept their struggles, learn to be thankful, celebrate them but not for the namesake, celebrate for yourself. Remembering The Pioneers of Education on Savitri Bai's 191 birth anniversary. Thank You for reading.

  • Bhidewada: The first school for girls

    "Sit idle no more. Go get education" - Savitri Bai Phule Education Isn't it is so easy to get?? What we have to struggle with, To get educated??? Haven't we got the easiest lives?? We have the rights, we have the power to represent, we have the freedom to live by choice. There are still flaws in the society, orthodox or the religious, which still, hamper many of the lives, but, aren't we so privileged?? We have the constitution for our protection, for our rights. There was a time, when religion ruled, no education for women, no rights for them, Lived for the men, Lived for patriarchal lineages, Nothing but an object, To serve the family was the only duty. Controlled by the patriarchy, they accepted their fate, With no rights, no freedom, The power of education, they never knew. A revolution began, with Jyotiba-Sau, He taught her, She learned, She knew the power. She rose, She fought, She struggled, and she taught. 1st January 1848, The first school for girls was started, at Bhidewada (a rented house in Pune) With associate Fatima as a teacher, 9 girl students joined. Though disgraced by society, She strived, for the girls, shudras and atishudras, for their education, for their rights. She broke all the chains of patriarchy, that made her weak, She was strong, with Jyotiba's companionship. Together they were abandoned, by families, by society, They never stopped their struggle, They never stopped the fight... Education is important, and so are the rights, Jyotiba-Sau for the upliftment of society, dedicated their whole life. Following their legacy, we got the scholarships, we got the hostels, we got schools, we got education. we got rights. Shahu, Ambedkar and many, who fought for the society, Jyotiba-Sau were their inspiration, Bhidewada was the first step, it was the beginning of a revolution. Bhidewada: First school for girls It is an honor, we had such social reformers coz of whom life is easy for many. Yet, we fail them in understanding their struggles and we fail to practice what had been taught. Bhidewada is truly the first step of that revolution. It was started by Savitri Bai Phule and Jyotiba on 1st January 1848. I assume you must be knowing the famous Dagduseth Halwai Ganpati temple in Pune, many of them might have visited too, but do you about Bhidewada: The first school for girls? Do you know Bhidewada is just at exact opposite of that famous temple? If you noticed the art I created, that photo in the art is its current situation, you will find nothing there, you won't even feel the power of revolution unless you know its importance. There had been protests, demands for Bhidewada to be recognized with national status for its historical importance. Pune Municipal Corporation listed Bhidewada as a heritage structure in 2017, but it is just listed. Activists have had conflicts with the shop owners who have shops in Bhidewada, but still, nothing has been done by corporation to preserve or save it. It would be great if we understand the importance of Jyotiba and Sau's struggle, it would be great if we understand the importance of Bhidewada, its historical importance. If you ever get a chance to visit Pune, do visit Bhidewada. You will definitely feel proud, but you will also feel disappointed because religion has overshadowed the importance of education. Thank You for reading, also to mention 1st January is also celebrated a Valor day, which represents the battle of Bhima Koregaon (which is never taught in school or colleges). You can read the poem 'Battle of Bhima Koregaon; An Untold Story' (click on the title).

  • The New Year

    The new year. What is it? Why do we celebrate?? Is there any history?? or a reason to celebrate?? Is it the earth's birthday?? or it's a religious practice?? or a tradition?? or it's merely a momentary festivity?? A year comes, a year goes, With every new year, we look ahead with hope... Isn't? Isn't that a false hope?? We celebrate the end, We celebrate the new beginning, We are celebrating for the YEAR to come, Then why it is momentary, limited to a day?? Why only for the celebration, we have the energy?? Isn't the new year a never-ending cycle?? To feel bad about the present, To let go the past, To live by the hope, To revisit the cycle again and again?? Who were we a year ago or before that?? Who are we now?? What happened to the resolutions before?? What will make the difference with the new vows?? We are trapped in the jumbled emotions, In the busiest lives of self & society, momentary happiness, momentary change, are just momentary, not a better life. Ask yourself for once, what makes you happy for the new year, Is it the happiness of letting the past go?? Or to enter a new blank chapter??? Or taking the resolution or the momentary happiness?? Several customs, several cultures, So does regions, or the religions, Have their own rituals, of new year traditions... A new year can be better, Not with a resolution, But with determination, Not with the expectations, But with the actions. If it's just a celebration for the new year, celebrate it each and every day, A year will always come, a year will always go, yet a new day, a new beginning comes every day. Whatever reason you have to celebrate the new year, don't let it be momentary happiness, don't live by the false hope, Remember the change is in your hands, You are the master of your own. Some interesting information about calendars; we must know why we celebrate New Year on January 1st every year. I have always been curious about the history of calendars and time. It is very interesting to know about the history of calendars. Several New Year traditions are celebrated every year having different new year dates. Globally January 1st is celebrated as the beginning of new year under the Gregorian calendar which was a modification from Julian Calendar, which itself was a successor to the Roman Calendar. I had questions; if sept means seven, oct means eight, nov means nine, and dec means ten, then why is December the last month of the year?? Isn't logically February should be the last month??? Also to notice we are taught February has fewer days because of leap year calculations, but we are not taught why February is so lucky to have fewer days. The Roman Calendar initially had 10 months, which began with March and ended on December, and being the 10th and last month it was called December. January and February were added later to it at the beginning of the calendar. The reason why January became the first month is because; January has derived its name from the Roman God Janus also known as the God of the Beginnings, and though February was added following January, the remaining days of the years were added to it in the end, which led to less number of days in February. The calendars have been modified several times. The major reform in the Roman calendar was done by Julius Caesar, which followed the pattern and was practiced for a very long time. The interesting part is people used to celebrate the new year earlier on 1st March and then on 1st January, but the authenticity and accuracy of calendars were challenged every time. Pope Gregory XIII modified the Julian Calendar with proper accuracy and calculations and implemented it on 4th October 1582. The miscalculation in Julian Calendar was rectified with an 11-day jump in the calendar. Really, 11 days jump, 4th October 1582 was next day followed by 15th October 1582 in form of new Gregorian Calendar and it was continued and is practiced globally. Here, in India, we ourselves have several different practices of the new year in form of Baisakhi, Bihu, Gudi Padwa, Nutan Varsh, Puthandu, Vishu, etc. depending on the region, culture. Also don't forget, birthdays, anniversaries themselves are the new year of their own. Hence, it doesn't really matter what a new year brings, or how we celebrate, but it is good if we are conscious about what we celebrate and why. It is better to celebrate every day rather than wait for a year to end and a year to begin. It is better to practice change rather than a desire for change. Also, we believe that by celebrating new year's day or following Gregorian Calendar we are being influenced by western culture. I agree we are very much influenced by western culture in terms of actions, behavior, celebration. If we talk about accepting the Gregorian Calendar it is accepted all over because of its scientific accuracy, as earlier calendars were based on lunar positions/movements, and they have more or fewer days than the current calendar. Gregorian Calendar is based on the revolution of Earth around the sun. If we observe Indian calendars, they follow the lunar movement, i.e. the dates of the calendar are based on the movement of the moon, hence festival dates change and are different every year. Thank You for reading, I hope it was interesting and you learned something new.

  • Women's Liberation Day

    Oh! Dear Woman, Are you awaken?? Are you liberated?? Though manusmriti was burned... The horrors of manusmriti, the class division and patriarchy, that led to discrimination, inhumane behavior, Oh woman, are you liberated?? The text that defined...

  • The Evolution of Change

    We believe in change, which is natural, by the nature, We believe in change, a constant, continuous, gradual evolution. But, what does change means to us? to human nature?? Why do we seek change in people, In system, in government, or anything/anyone around us Isn't change a never-ending human desire???? If change is natural Why do we say?? To bring change in the world, Be the change first... Can change really be controlled?? Is it in our hands...?? Nature has its own ways of change, it's own way of evolution... yet, human being the most evolved, has no control over the changes in self, in own nature... We are evolved by greed, by desires, or by uncontrolled emotions... The changes we seek/desire is not for the evolution, but for the self-comfort, or for our own favor. Whatever ideology, whatever faith, whatever culture, whatever thought we belong, we don't seek change in ourselves, we seek change in others, for selfish or for ideal reasons. If evolution means natural growth, why do changes we seek are never evolved?? why we reject to accept the change in self?? but expect everything in our own favor?? There is a need for change... In the world, in systems, in governments, In people, in everything around us... Yes, there is a need for revolution. But, there is a need for evolution first. The evolution of change in us, is nothing about expectations or favors, It is about the acceptance, the experience, the learning, the growth, the evolution. The day the change evolves to actions, rather than the expectations. The day you believe you can change, rather than you keep wanting the change, Is the evolution. I found a quote, which said; "You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone: Change begins at the end of your comfort zone" - Roy T. Bennett I would rephrase it for the context. "The Evolution of Change begins at the end of your comfort zone." As changes exist naturally, and we adapt according to our favors, desires. The evolution of change is what we need, for self, for others, and for revolution.

  • The Question of Morality

    What is morally right??? What is morally wrong??? How should one decide??? and why is it important??? Who defines morality???? You, me, or someone??? Let me ask you... Isn't morality universal??? The perception of morality... Differs for everyone... The good, the right for one... Can be the bad, the wrong for others... Why is there conflict in perceptions..?? What must be the reason??? Is morality one's own understanding, realization??? Or is it left on karma, god, or supernatural to judge??? We ourselves have defined/justified/decided, The behavior, the actions, the thoughts... Morality is corrupted by one's own interests and ego... I am only right, others are wrong... We fail to understand/realize... The light & the dark lies in-universe together... They have no such meaning... Similar to the newborn... They are neutral, they are natural... We are free from the good, Free from the bad... Since the day we are born... The question of morality begins... As we learn, we grow, we evolve... We act, we react, we believe... without a single thought... How will we understand morality... without a question, without a reason?? There is no answer to morality... If there is no question to self... You will always be right... Others will always be wrong... "Don't go by what you hear, or what you have read... Don't go by what you have seen or have been passed upon generations... Don't go by mere reason or mere logic or as said by me, sermons of saints or teachers... If anything is harmful or blameworthy... If anything is apprehended by wise If anything leads to ill-being or suffering... You should put them away..." Said the Buddha; in a sermon to Kalamas... There is good in the universe... There is bad too... There is good in the bad... There is bad in good too... That is the universal nature of morality... Morality is not a tool of justification, for actions, behavior, or thoughts... Morality is to be practiced... for self, for others, for the greater good...

  • The Castes & The Politics

    What is your caste?? Why do you have it??? What is its importance??? What is the use of it??? We know it's rooted in the system... Yet we feel proud of it... We fail to understand... It was politics then, and now too it is... Formed as classification of professions... Were cleverly politically divided... Formed the religion with birth identities... Were divided, were discriminated... There had been no castes today... If there had been no discrimination in manusmriti... Law could have been equal then... If there wasn't the urge of power or an urge of controlling... The Constitution of India Reformed those divisions... To equalize the communities... To eradicate the discrimination... Based on the population and their financial capabilities... Constitutionally caste is needed... For the protection...for the upliftment of deprived... Who faced discrimination for the centuries... and once uplifted, the caste has no benefits... If caste is limited to reservation and representations... Why does everyone have it???? Why one is proud of it??? Isn't it just a useless identity???? Caste outside the limits of the constitution... Is not just religious, but it's politics... The game of divide and rule... To break the united... The pride is not of the caste... But of its qualities... Don't forget every caste is oppressive... Rather it's a brahmin or a dalit... Caste is nothing but a patriarchal hierarchy... Caste is being misused... Not by those who need... But by those who are forward/uplifted and oppressive... It is politically misused in the name of development... To divide you on the basis of your faith, religion, and ideologies... Ambedkar's movement of Annihilation of caste... Was not just limited to intercaste-culture... Or disbelief in vedas, upnishadas... He gave you the freedom of religion... So you get out of the roots of it... Your identity of caste is rooted in your name... Read 'What path to Salvation?' by Ambedkar To understand... The need for change in name and religion... Yet not forget... Caste has infected the minorities... Not just in India, but outside the country... One cannot escape from the castes and the politics... Unless one gets educated, agitates, and organizes... Unless one learns to develop self... and understands politics is for the development... It is not a game of power or hierarchy... Read history... If you desire to get out of the caste... If you truly want to eradicate it... Bring change in yourself first... Be politically aware and represent for collective good... And refrain from caste politics...

  • The Thoughts & The Reasons

    What are thoughts?? Where do they come from?? Are they natural, or can they be controlled?? Do we really control our thoughts?? or are they controlled by the mind??? Is there any supernatural power controlling our thoughts, or are we just the slaves of naive minds?? We worry we overthink... Some thoughts come naturally... not able to control self... We wonder why we are thinking. We blame the actions... We blame the reactions... We blame the so-called god or nature... Yet we don't blame the thoughts in our minds... Being a human... We have the capability, to think, to control the mind... yet we are controlled by faiths and beliefs... Thoughts are nothing but natural reactions... perceived by the senses, processed in the mind... call it action, reaction or emotion... with the thought; everything starts and everything ends. We deny understanding the natural process... and deny understanding the science... Without looking into our own self... We find the reasons outside... Thoughts are of two types... One that comes naturally... And other with the purpose... what we call thinking... Learn to observe the nature and reaction of thought... Learn to analyze... Practice right-thinking, with proper reasoning... That is only the way to control the thought... To control the mind. When you learn to control the thought... You control the emotions... You control the actions, reactions... You control your behavior... You control your body and your mind... 'Everything happens for a reason.' Is a belief stuck in our mind... The reason may be natural, or there can be science... Neither a miracle nor fate... Neither nature nor supernatural being responsible for your thought...for your mind...


    We The People, We pledge by the Preamble, The Preamble of our Constitution, But, do we really abide by the Constitution??? Are we, Really collective as 'WE'??? While divided by caste, class, religion?? or by sex, language & region?? I will quote Ambedkar "In politics, we will be recognizing the principle of one man, one vote and one vote, one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, by reason of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value. How long shall we continue to live this life of contradictions?..." Does our Constitution, doesn't emphasize one man, one value?? I wonder, what made Ambedkar say that... while submitting the Constitution?? How hard it is to eradicate, any form of discrimination, Has Constitution failed in its application??? Let's not forget, What was before the Constitution... The law of manu... Which divided the people... The hierarchy of gender... The hierarchy of caste... The social structure... The discrimination... Is deep-rooted in the minds, The minds of 'We' The People. Have 'We' as the people, failed the Constitution?? failed the vision of Ambedkar?? One cannot end the caste or any form of discrimination... Unless one abides by the Constitution... Unless one learns to protect not just self, but others... Practicing Equality, Liberty and Fraternity, Can only bring Justice to us. Justice for self, and for others... When we are free from religion. we will be a secular nation... When we value one another, be equal, We will be a socialist nation... Without one man, one vote, ONE VALUE, How can we be a democratic nation??? The Constitution is not merely a document to protect... It is a tool to create a better Nation, To represent... To create better people... Let's not call us 'we' unless we value the people. Let's pledge 'We the people' only by understanding and abiding by The Constitution. Jai Bhim Happy Constitution Day

  • The Two Buddhas

    "It is hard for mankind to liberate itself from the entanglement of god and soul. It is hard for mankind to give up its belief in rites and ceremonies. It is hard for mankind to give up its belief in karma" - Buddha Do you know??? Who the Buddha was?? A man, a woman??? Or was he gender neutral?? Was he a god?? or the avatar of Vishnu??? A teacher, a preacher, Or a revolutionary social reformer?? Why is he prayed as a god? or known as the founder of religion??? Did he ever claim himself, to be in that order??? It seems; there had been Two Buddhas all along.. In which, the majority has been following the other one. The other Buddha, Different from the enlightened one. A learned observer, the sentient. Must not he have observed pain or suffering till his youth?? Really?? with the visuals of an ill, old, dead, and a saint, Led to the quest of Siddharth??? Bound to exile, was he for his thought; ‘War is not the answer, when it can be solved with the peaceful agreement.’ to prevent the long going conflicts, between the Shakyas and the Koliyas, Began with asceticism, looked for the answers to prevent suffering, With several techniques learned, He could not find the solutions in them. Mantras, chanting, observing the breath or sensations, Were not his form of meditation... His meditation was an analysis of his experiences. To prevent further suffering from happening. He taught the technique of the universal Eightfold Path... To find the righteous, with practice and experience. A path to the attainment of Nibbana. Simple, yet difficult to practice, were his teachings, Who did then led to the formation of sects, Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana, and other forms of Buddhism??? The doctrine of Karma & Rebirth was reframed by Buddha as Kamma and Samsara. Kamma is the natural order of morals, Nothing related to the fortunes and misfortunes. This constant change in us, around us, is the rebirth; the samsara. As we are born every moment. Ambedkar's interpretation of Budhha, and his Dhamma as 'Navyana' stands out different in the contradictions with different sects. He studied Buddha's teachings which taught us to reason. He revived the Buddha's dhamma; free from myths and superstitions. It is your choice... Of your interpretation of Buddha... But be aware of the rights and wrongs, Learn to question and learn to reason.

  • The Purpose of Life

    This is me, That is mine, Am I happy?? with all the desires?? Is life really a misery from birth to death?? Or a vicious cycle of unwanted karmic rebirths??? Numerous lives, numerous miseries, Heaven or hell, What was before the birth?? What is beyond death??? The attainment of moksha is not the same as nirvana. The peaceful mind, free from suffering, desires Is what is called nirvana. Is it really needed for one to be religiously spiritual, or be enlightened, aware, sentient?? How one must conquer the sufferings??? Is there any end??? The conscious mind is aware of realities, Yet we live in a world full of illusions. Pain, happiness, time everything changes, at last, the change is permanent... One must have faith to be spiritual. but do you have faith in yourself??? An enlightened, aware, sentient. Are not spiritual..but have faith in one's own self. Consciousness arises with experiences and realities, There is no mystery nor miracle. Yes, every action has its own reaction, But are not the karmic results... The long-gone past has nothing to do with the present, Except for its knowledge and experience. Vipassana is a mere tool to observe and develop self. Not the end or an ultimate solution. We are born through, the four elements of nature, We die, we blend, we dissolve, in the womb of nature. The purpose of life lies in 3 simple words, Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha. i.e. Educate, Agitate, Organise, The journey from birth to death. Everyone has their own choices, Of faiths and belief systems. Be wise. But learn to be aware, enlightened, and sentient.
