ask why Don’t you think “Bharat Mata” is actually a goddess? ‘Bharat Mata’ is present everywhere in the country, the feet of ‘Bharat Mata’ are spread everywhere, the hands of ‘Bharat Mata’ are spread everywhere.
ask why Don’t you think “Bharat Mata” is actually a goddess? ‘Bharat Mata’ is present everywhere in the country, the feet of ‘Bharat Mata’ are spread everywhere, the hands of ‘Bharat Mata’ are spread everywhere, the ears of ‘Bharat Mata’ hear everything,’ Bharat Mata’ Compassionate eyes of all see, in the south the sea is washing the feet of ‘Bharat Mata’, in the north is the crown of this ‘Bharat Mata’ with high jewels of the Himalayas, small mountains like Aravalli’ Bharat Mata’ It has its energy, rivers and streams. are its arteries, the prosperous fields and granaries are the cries of Mother India, the whole atmosphere is the life of this Mother India, the flowing air is the breath of Mother India, the poor and the rich of India, high and low, Kshatriya- Brahmins are the capital of this ‘Bharat Mata’, all caste groups are the priests of this ‘Bharat Mata’, the food of the fields, fruits and flowers are the offerings offered by ‘Bharat Mata’, the temples The ancient idols installed in the temple have been in a deep sleep for a long time.
These idols seem to have forgotten about India. We must install a living idol in the temples. And this idol can only be of ‘Bharat Mata’. Vaishnavi, Kali and Lord Shankar don’t care about India at all. ‘Bharat Mata’ has groaned due to inflation, unemployment, so we expect a living idol. Who can feel the pain of the people of India.
What harm is there if such an idol, such an idol, is installed in the temples? See, no, South Indian deity Shani Dev temples have been built in North India, if the statues of Sai Baba are being discovered in the temples, what is the harm if the statues of ” Bharat Mata” are installed in the temples. Once established, we will no longer have to preach patriotism. Sculptors, artists, poets, poets, men of letters, turn their tools a little in this direction.
Let the artist embody the above words of ‘Bharat Mata’. Build a big statue of “Bharat Mata” with your imagination. Then the idol of ‘Bharat Mata’ should be installed in the temples. The image of a vast India will automatically pop up. If “Bharat Mata” temples are built in the country, then a thought will start coming out of the temples. The sense of duty of patriotism will begin to grow. The old idols have forgotten us.
Remember that in the enlightened society of India, through the hard work of centuries, many customs, beliefs and stereotypes have been abandoned, so if one stereotype breaks more, what is the harm? What is the harm in installing ‘Bharat Mata’ statue in temples? What if the people of the country join Mother India? What is the problem if the feeling of patriotism starts to leave the temples? If I keep counting, we have broken no fewer stereotypes. Let me briefly comment on the attacks on the following stereotypes:
(a) Attack on the practice of Sati: In Bengal, Raja Ram Mohan Roy’s sister-in-law was burnt before his eyes. He started a movement to stop the practice of Sati by establishing ‘Brahma Samaj’. The customs of the Sati system were broken and due to their efforts the practice of Sati came to an end in 1829. A cruel practice has come to an end.
(b) The education of girls was prohibited: Think about it, only half of society had stopped studying. The first attack on this practice was made by Jyotiba Phule and his wife Savitri Bai Phule. He started the first girls’ school in Bhindewala, Pune in 1848. When angelic persons like Swami Dayanand of Arya Samaj, Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji raised their voices in favor of women’s education, the process of ‘girls’ education. When the stereotypes were broken, a section of the society also became Kalpana Chawla and touched the space. Similarly, this Phule couple raised their voice for the upliftment of the lower caste.
(c) Society moved towards the end of untouchability in 1849: This same Indian society attacked stereotypes like untouchability and the caste system in 1849. It made untouchability and caste matters a crime. In 1856 a law was made for widows to remarry. In 1860 Keshav Chandra Sen himself of ‘Brahma Samaj’ fed the low caste people with his own hands. He came to Bombay in 1856 and founded the ‘Widow Mandal’. With the help of people like Mahadev Govind Ranade, widows were given freedom to remarry.
(d) Prohibition of infanticide: See the irony of society, the girl is killed as soon as she is born. Even the girls were buried alive in the earth. In 1795, infanticide was outlawed by the Bengal Regulation Act. Infanticide was declared a crime. These cruel stereotypes had distorted the very shape of society. Today society has broken the traditions of millions of years. Torture of girls is prohibited by the “Hindu Marriage Act”. Married women have full property rights. These societal stereotypes were not broken just like that. Society has not only changed. Many changes have taken place, many will happen now, but those bad practices that slow down the development of society must remain in the crime category.– mother Mohan Lal (Former Transport Minister, Punjab)
