Hindi in Arunachal
Who says that India ends in the North East? Frankly, it begins here.
Did you know that a group of students in Arunachal Pradesh have taken a chapter out of India’s freedom struggle and begun a movement to boycott Chinese goods?
I made this discovery, and many others, when I was invited to Itanagar in October to meet 645 college students from 28 colleges and technical institutions of Arunachal Pradesh.
The Youth Camp, inaugurated by Education Minister Bosiram Siram, turned out to be a most memorable and unforgettable experience.
I went to teach, but was left speechless and deeply moved by the burning patriotic fervour and tremendous enthusiasm of these tribal youth from the Adi, Apatani, Monpa, Mishmi, Nyishi, Tagin and so many other tribes across this border state.
All of them were fluent in a pure and Sanskritised form of Hindi. They were well informed and deeply aware of national, regional and global issues.
They have an innate flair for community singing and their melodious chanting of Sanskrit hymns from the Vedas and Upanishads left one spellbound. In fact, it moved one to tears to see their love for their country and culture.
Say No to China
What one group of students from Tawang said at a workshop took our breath away. The young people of Tawang had decided to boycott all Chinese goods.
Some Marwari traders were resisting this boycott for the purposes of economic gains/profits. The traders claimed they brought these cheap goods from legitimate channels and hence, should be allowed to sell them.
The students felt this was a betrayal. China had evil designs on their beautiful state and this was their forthright response.
They were not enamoured of China or its totalitarian state model. Some of them were quite keenly aware of how Tibetan Buddhism had virtually been destroyed, how the Dalai Lama and thousands of Tibetans had to flee their homeland forever, simply to preserve their culture and their way of life.
The sad saga of Tibetan resistance to Hanisation was fresh in their memories. The Hans in Tibet now outnumber the local people. A century down the line, Tibet would cease to exist as a unique cultural and linguistic entity.
The response of the young people of Tawang was a page straight out of the history of the Freedom Struggle. In a poignant statement (so very reminiscent of Gandhiji’s approach in our freedom Struggle), they had decided to boycott Chinese goods.
The message was loud and clear – they saw the Chinese as prospective colonisers of their sacred land; as aliens and invaders who would destroy their culture and efface their unique identity.
Too short for the Army?
What else moved these young people? ”Why is height such a disqualification for joining the Army?”One young man after another asked me this agonizing question.
Their tremendous zeal and enthusiasm for joining the Army was as apparent as their keen disappointment over being rejected on the basis of not being tall enough.
One student patiently tried to explain that people of Arunachal Pradesh were given 1.5 cm worth of concession in height stipulation. As a Military Commander, I would have given my right arm to have such motivated and enthusiastic young men in our fighting units.
If there was one thing that they were so keenly looking forward to, it was the raising of two battalions of the Arunachal Pradesh Scouts. Seeing the burning zeal and commitment of these young Apatani, Monpa, Tagin and Mishmi boys, I felt the Indian Army would do itself the greatest favour by expediting the raising of these Arunachal Scout battalions. I am told these battalions are in the pipeline and will fructify soon.
I am certain, that as and when that happens, the Arunachal Pradesh Scouts will give as good an account of themselves in battle, as the brave Nunoos of the Ladakh Scouts.
In Siachen and Kargil, the Ladakh Scouts have become a byword for bravery, grit and sheer tenacity. Having seen these young boys from Tawang, I cannot help feeling they will be as good, if not better than our Ladakh Scout units. The Army Headquarters must expedite the raising of these Arunachal Scout battalions, for in the heightened threat profile, they have a very significant role to play.
An Eastern renaissance
As the helicopter took off from Itanagar, the haunting strains of 645 boys and girls, chanting Sanskrit hymns from the Vedas and the Upanishads, lingered in my ears. It had been a beautiful and unforgettable experience.
I could not help thinking that what we were seeing was the beginning of a remarkable Indian revival; a great civilizational renewal and it was starting from the Eastern-most corner of India.
With such dedicated boys and girls, the sun of an Indian renaissance will truly rise from Arunachal Pradesh and spread to the rest of our land. God Bless these children and their beautiful chants of faith and confidence in being the proud inheritors of an ancient Indian tradition of excellence. It restores my faith in the manifest destiny of the Indian people.
The decision of the youth of Tawang to boycott Chinese goods is a clarion call that should raise the rest of the country out of its slumber.

Next time when someone who sounds Hindu is talking bad about his faith you know the secret behind it! He is not even a Hindu. This is used as a conversion technique. This is how deceptive and evil gets, that is their modus operandi for past 2000 years. They misappropriate good things about other civilizations and ‘internalize’ on their way to global conquest, it is called INCULTURATION! Here are a few recent examples:

2,000 Gujarat tribals return to Hinduism in Surat

2,000 Gujarat tribals return to Hinduism in Surat
http://deshgujarat.com/2009/12/21/2000-gujarat-tribals-return-to-hinduism-in-surat/

By our correspondent
Surat, 21 December, 2009
As many as 2,000 tribal people(officially registered about 1700) from remote parts of eastern and southern Gujarat tribal belt today reconverted to Hinduism in a function held at Adajan area in Surat.
Jagadguru Ramanandacharya Shree Swami Narendracharya Maharaj of Nanij presided over the purification ceremony — a several-hour long function. Wearing dhotis and sporting the sacred thread, the converts’ heads were tonsured to signify their rebirth. During the purification ceremony, the converts who felt cheated after going to Christianity apologized to their forefathers for betraying their faith. Converts were purified by Panchagavya and Bhabhuti. Converts were given fresh ‘Vastram’. The affidavits will be made and later registered to complete the formalities
The entire conversion process was similar to the one when 350 years back Shivaji Maharaj brought Netaji Palkar into Hindu dharma by performing the purification process.

No state money for churches : Andhra highcourt

No state money for churches

By By Our Correspondent (Deccan Chronicle)

Hyderabad
Oct. 5:

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday made it clear that no government money can be spent to construct or repair churches and other Christian religious institutions in the state in pursuance of the GO Ms. No. 42, issued on December 19, 2001.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy was dealing with a writ petition filed by one Dr Tripuraneni Hanuman Chowdary complaining that the state government was promoting a religion contrary to injunctions of the Constitution. The bench was clarifying its earlier orders of status quo in this regard.
The petitioner listed the various orders issued between December 2001 and March 2009 and complained that the state under the guise of welfare of SCs and STs was “promoting religious activity relating to Christians”.
The court had ordered on September 7 to maintain status quo on release of funds under the GO for maintenance, repair and construction of churches.
When the case came up for hearing, the counsel for the petitioner, Mr Challa Kodanda Ram, complained that the words status quo were being misinterpreted by the officers. The bench then said there shall be no spending of government money in pursuance to the various GOs issued by the government.

YSR Reddy’s death

http://in.christian today.com/ articles/ view-reddys- death-undeniably -a-colossal- loss-for- christians/ 4481.htm

Church leaders in India would agree that it would take another decade
to find a peer commensurate with Reddy who was even-handed and filled
with egalitarian and inclusive principles. Reddy’s audacious decisions
and staunch actions had brought cheer to the minuscule community at
various times. If Reddy’s death is the greatest loss in the political
circle, the same goes for Christians whose pleas had been humbly
addressed and grievances punctually redressed by the deceased leader.

Without question, Reddy’s action spoke larger than words. Just ten
days back, in a first, the Christian politico dauntlessly adopted a
resolution supporting the Dalit Christians. Remember, not recently or
past, has anyone of this stature made such a move to emancipate
millions of Dalits whose predicaments fell deaf ears until now. It was
something to cheer. The chief minister was praised and thanked by
leading Christian councils.

It was not an outright move. The decision to back Dalit Christians
came after many delegations met at his office and beseeched help. To
all, Reddy promised action. Apparently he had even promised to lead a
Christian delegation to New Delhi to speak to the highest authorities
and bring justice to the 20 million Dalit Christians. Unlike others
whose promising words come to satiate their lust for power and yearn
for limelight, Reddy’s was factual. Following his visit to Delhi with
a delegation, it was pertinent that Minister for Minorities came out
with a statement acknowledging that all probes proved the causes of
Dalit Christians and a positive response was in the offing.

Further, a perusal of his contributions in his own state evinces more.
The chief minister apart from taking gargantuan tasks that brought
unprecedented development had pioneered scores of initiatives for
Christians. “He set up the A.P. State Christian Finance Corporation
which is first of its kind in the country. He also introduced the
novel schemes like Government subsidy to the Holy Land and assistance
for Christian Mass Marriages for the first time,” according to Andhra
Pradesh Federation of Churches (APFC), a state-level apex body of the
Bishops and Heads of Churches of all Christian Denominations.
