Breaking colonial mindset of Indian youth

Also Read

“This morning when I wake up at night” (just for humour), I was reading a spiritual discourse by his grace AC bhaktivedant Srila Prabhupada on re-incarnation, which is a very Vedic school of thought, but to my wonder I came to references of foreign thinkers, scientists etc.. as many as 10-15 times. I wondered if the publication were to made in Europe rather than India. But to my surprise it was an exclusive Indian edition. This only fact of coincidence gave me to write for my next post i.e. to break the colonial mindset of Indian youth, especially the gluttonish urbane one.

There was mention of Socrates, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Descartes, Herman Hesse, Count Leo Tolstoy, though their thoughts on reincarnations were notable but why did his grace choose to mention those instead of Bharat’s own Swami Vivekanand, Adi Shankracharya, Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji, Panini, Tulsi, Madhavacharya, Ramanujacharya and many more.Why was their reference of “The human comedy” instead of “ramcharit manas” or 87 more Ramayanas or 1k more Mahabharatas.

Simply, to make more eye of Indian Youth on our great literatures, through “their” spectrum. Today on quizzing shows, Indian youth know more Greek philosophy than United Kingdom. But when asked about any of their own, it would be very non-classy to know that. A big thanks to Mc-Olay (YES! I can write that way).

The only grudge about being not known to our heritage comes through path of Northern America. Starting by the very own closure of pop gym cultures to YOGA and peace of mind. From frizky eating habit to dine pure and at home (thanks to c-19). We refer as ancient Greek history, while Indian mythology. These small pattern of observation lead me call India an ‘eastern west’.

The only request to my fellow young Indians please make a right choice of literature, popular-culture and ethno-centric mindset. And yes, a big sorry to my secular Indian folks, who are wondering why I didn’t mentioned the Arabic cults while talking about philosophies. Please think till your next reincarnation in Saudi.
