Who is the Rashtrapitamah of India?

Though constitutionally it has not been declared that Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati is the Rashtrapitamah of India but the people and the nation, believe and say, that Swami Dayanand Saraswati the founder of Arya samaj is the Grandfather of India.

Swami Dayanand had proclaimed India for Indians in 1876 (Commentry on Yajurveda -Lazarus Press Banaras 1876). It was his teachings and the book Satyarth Prakash that inspired leaders, scholars, reformers and revolutioneries like Aurobindo Ghosh, Dadabhoy Naroaji, Lokmanya Tilak for the Independence movement.

Swami Dayanand's disciple Shyamji Krishan Verma who founded India House in London inspired Madam Cama, Ver Sawarkar, Lala Hardyal, Madan Lal Dhingra, Bhagat Singh etc. who laid down their lives for the independence of India.

Alan Octavian Hume, founder of Indian National Congress (that professes the party to be the fore-runner of the freedom struggle) and Annie Besant, the first President had declared that Swami Dayanand laid the foundation of the Freedom movement.

Another View:

It was for some political situations and compulsions that Mahatma Gandhi was declared Father of the Nation which title swami Dayanand deserved. That is why and how Ananthswami Ayyangar the first Speaker of Indian Parliament and the that time President of the ruling party Indian Nationlal Congress Pattabhi Sitaramayya had to say that Gandhi is the Father of the Nation and Dayanand is the Grandfather of the Nation because Gandhi reaped what Dayanand had sown.

Who can be called Rashtrapitamah of India?

A person, a leader or a philosopher who has guided, been the idol or a protector of the Rashtrapita. Or alternatively, on whose lines the Rashtrapita has learnt, followed, practised and carried out the mission for the freedom, construction and development of the nation. 'Rashtrapitamah sows the seeds for the Nation and Rashtrapita reaps'.

Reviewing the historical facts and happenings, it can be judged that it is Swami Dayanand Saraswati, founder of Arya Samaj, who inspired millions of Indians to fight for the freedom of India deserves to be called Rashtrapitamah. Because of his teachings, out of the freedom fighters and revolutionaries 70% people were from Arya samaj only who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of India. The Indian Nation owes this credit to the Swami.

Who is called the Grandfather of India?

Maharish Dayanand Saraswati is known as the Grandfather of India.

Mahatma Gandhi is called as the Father of India. From that perspective Maharishi Dayanand is rightfully the Grandfather of India since he had prepared the ground for the Swarajya movement in 1857.

A A Aiyangar, the first Speaker of India's Constitutional Assembly had also declared the same that if Gandhi we have declared as Father of the Nation, Dayanand is the Grandfather of the Nation.

Great Indian Historian Pannikar had stated that 80% of the persons fighting for the freedom struggle were from Arya samaj founded by Swami Dayanand.

Examining the historical events and facts, it is but imperative to re-evaluate the status of Swami Dayanand in the History of India and he be constitutional declared as GRANDFATHER OF INDIAwhich rightfully he deserved.

What is the place of Swami Dayanand in the History of India?

Historically and ethically, Swami Dayanand Saraswati deserves the place of Rashtrapita because he was the first national figure who spoke, wrote and sermoned for the freedom of India in 1876.

Because of his writings, preachings and reforms, there were born revolutionaries who were responsible for attaining the Freedom of India. Mahatma Gandhi came much later on the map of the Struggle for India's freedom. He had only reaped what Dayanand had sown for the struggle. Seven years before Gandhi was even born, Dayanand spoke and had preached for Swarajya i.e. Self governance in his writings and preachings. Gandhi followed the movements started by Dayanand of Untouchability, Social evils, Women's education, Adoption of Swadeshi or Hindi as National language etc. etc. and for some political compulsions of the era he was declared Rashtrapita.

In that chronology Swami Dayanand is regarded as Rashtrapitamah (Grandfather of the Nation)

What is the reason of Rajiv Dixit of bhart swabhiman death?

A VERY SAD DAY FOR INDIA. Rajiv bhai was a source of inspiration and I shared his lectures and forwarded the links to so many people I know. HE WAS A POTENTIAL FUTURE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA. That would have been a HISTORICAL DAY for India or may I say BHARAT.I can smell of a conspiracy to eliminate him by vested interests controlling our politics. He had the list of the people who have stashed away millions of Indian money in Swiss and other foreign banks. The suspicion is strengthened as the English media has not covered this News in any of the channels. He was a crusader against corruption and we must continue his efforts which would be a true tribute to this great man.

I am saddened to hear this great loss all of a sudden; I really was not prepared for this. I opened youtube to see if there is any update on Bharat Swabhiban, there I found Baba Ramdev ji paying tribute to Rajiv Ji.

Anyway, the fact is, anyone can die anytime without any prior indication. This could be a staged endeavour by engaging a very "smart" group by MNCs or politicians who somehow managed to induce some chemical which might have mimicked the cardiac arrest symptoms. But this would surely be picked up in autopsy! On the other hand, it could also be possible that that he really died of cardiac arrest. He might not have tested himself but had very high Triglyceride and cholesterol, he might have had full or partial blockage in arteries. Even though he was practicing yoga and Ayurveda, in some cases it is difficult to stop the general tendency of accumulating fatty components in blood i.e. Triglyceride and cholesterol. On top of that, over his very busy life, he might have failed to look after his health. I don't know, I just can't believe what I am writing myself! I can't see he is no more! It seems that I have lost my own elder brother! He completely changed my mind and life. I can't see any present leader to take the Bhrarat Swabhiman Andolon further. He was the most dedicated, educated, and genuine mind. Put it this way, he was eating, playing, and sleeping on it, 24/7, relentlessly, without any prejudice for last 20 years! For this he never married, gave up highly paid job, foreign citizenship, and "lucrative" political career.

I pay my deepest condolence to his parents and family. May I please say:

Asatho Maa Sad Gamaya.

Thamaso Maa Jyothir Gamaya.

Mrithyur Maa Amritham Gamaya.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

From untruth lead us to Truth.

From darkness lead us to Light.

From death lead us to Immortality.

Om Peace, Peace, Peace.

- Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, I.iii.28 -

Alhamdulillah, let be peace upon him.

Amen

I just read on wikipedia that he addressed 3 jana jagruthi camps at chattishgarh and had some breathin gproblem on reaching bhilai and eventually passed away due to cardiac arrest at a private hospital.He was 43. To say it in short , he gave up his life for us , Indians.Wonder how much we value that...

@reply to:

First of all he is not dead just his body is not with us.He can not leave this earth until this country is free.Before he go he has created thousands of Rajiv dixit.I have planned for myself once I complete my responsibilities I will fully devote myself to complete his cause.

How can he die like this ,i can not digest it so easily.He was strictly following yoga and ayurveda practices.He himself was knows about homeopath and ayurveda.He was in his best health. I doubt over his death it is definitely a conspiracy. I imagine it is same as done with Lal Bahadur shashtri ji.

Anyways Rajiv ji with us and will always inspire us to do our duty towards our Maa Bharati.Maa Bharati is not barren .He will give many Rajiv dixit in coming time.

Let us do'NT loose our heart and keep on doing his work and that to with hurricane speed.

Maa Bharati ki jai.

How many political parties should India have?

In a democracy any group of citizens is free to form a political party. In this formal sense there are large number of political parties in each country. More than 750 parties are registered with the Election Comission Of India. But not all these parties are serious contenders in the elections. Usually only a handful parties are effectively in the race to win elections and form the government.So the question then is how many major or effective parties are good for democracy?

In some countries only one party is allowed to control and run the government.These are called one-party systems.

What are the Roles of women in Modern India?

Role of woman in modern India can be called as phenomenol.The transition of woman from the past to present is worth mentioning.Woman who once considered to be the masters in the art of home making are now considered to be the forces that shape a country.

you can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of women-jawaherlal nehru.

As said by our first prime minister todays woman have changed the worlds way in which they look at us and our country.Today many woman are well educated and they are now into different professions.They manage the team,show leadership qualities,act tatcfully during crises and what not they also has ther hand in changing the political picture of our country by contributing 56% of electoral roll.U hardly find a industry/sector wer u wudnt find women.Even they played a role in developing akash and agni missiles as quoted by MR.ABDUL KALAM in one of the gatherings.In politics too they play a sinificant role,to name a few sonia gandhi,sushma swaraj are cited as poweful politicians.They are passionate about the work they do and opened new dimensions in there life.They now have the right to protest against assaults and discrimination on them.Stringent and strict action is taken against those who abuse women.This change has brought up a new light in the face of women and they began to compete with men in all sectors and industries and paint there mark in a more pleasing way.Agriculture which is considered to be the back bone of India is getting more and more feminized.Comprising the majority of agricultural laborers, women have been putting in labour not only in terms of physical output but also in terms of quality and efficiency. In universties/colleges the percentage of women enrollments has increased over the decades and this shows the change in the mind set of the parents in educating their female children.This could bring up positive vibes in the vision of shaping new India.
