We always have been debating extensively over caste system with the presumption that it is passed on, on the basis of birth from a father to child. All our sources of knowledge prepares us for the same discussion pro or against. It kind of fits well with the Indian era of Socialist-Marxist ideology of oppressor versus victim narrative. That is the reason the idea of caste has been too politicised even post independence.

British might have had a bounty of proving a point among world leaders of those times, that whatever system existed before them colonising was worse than what they gave. But the failure of the Indian Socialists to accept the fact that we had gone through another set of invasions already suppressing the core value of this civilisation. Suppose if it wasn’t based on birth then the oppressor versus victim argument collapses instantly. Nobody talks about what it was before the start of these invasions. 

Our civilisation survived and even flourished for thousands of years at least from the western reference of Harappa(>2800BC) till Chalukya(<1000AD). Combination of Socialism and Marxism which we idolise so much has lost its relevance within a century.

Now in the centre of socialist realm, The United States of America reached so low, their political discourse revolve around ‘there are 64 genders with 20 or so people each, who are being oppressed by people that didn’t even know they existed’. Its been actively propagated in academic, social and political discourse. It’s making people cancel anyone who doesn’t agree with dividing people and creating these newer group identities ultimately taking democracy into jeopardy. 

Our civilisation pre invasions had to have something these ‘modern’ way of society lacked. 

The caste system for instance is a Foreign term coined by British which is a third party point of view of our civilisation by the people who didn’t understand our language nor the manifestations of us and hasn’t seen us at the best before the first set of Turkish and Arab invasions carrying out mass destruction of our literature and culture. Closest terminology for it in Indian scriptures is Varna system. But it isn’t based on birth according to Baghavadgita. 

चातुर्वर्ण्यं मया सृष्टं गुण-कर्म-विभागशः। तस्य कर्तारमपि मां विद्ध्यकर्तारमव्ययं || 4-13 ||

According to this shloka the transfer of varna was not based on birth but a division in the society based on Guna(character trait based on amount of Satvika, Rajhasa & Thamasa behaviour ingrined in their characterand Karma(the occupation you do based on your Guna). It was a working model of society where based on your character trait you are being made useful in the process of betterment of the society and thus civilisation. It’s actually better than equal opportunity, it gives right opportunity. You will definitely cherish in a certain field which your character trait naturally reflects to.

Each varna had its own Dharma which refers to a set of rules that helps you perceive and attain the best outcome possible in your particular field. The broad division would be Brhmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra. Brahmana were the knowledge base or people working on academia. In current day scenario it would be, Research scholars and University Professors.

Kshatriya Consisted of Administrators and people responsible for security or military, in current day scenario it would be politicians. Vaishya handled wealth or the trade. In current day scenario merchants and Businessmen. And lastly shudras that were skilled employees in all the fields employed by the rest three and agriculturists. In current day scenario, it ranges from college educated professionals working in software companies to menial labourers working in fields. What makes it better is its exclusivity. A Brahmana couldn’t have weapons, wealth or agriculture. A Kshatriya couldn’t have wealth, agriculture or interfere in academia and so on.

It comes down to our current topic of discussion. The exclusivity of politicians to only do politics and not indulge in personal wealth building and interfering with the academia. Unfortunately the Socialist and Marxists for the past century actively indulged in personal wealth creation which resulted in the greed for power. The greed for power certainly resulted in interfering with the academia to portray their form of governance as the best one to keep on obtaining the benefits of POWER. 

If the current dispensation which is supposedly the conservative right wing government, indulgence of Kshatra Dharma should be the basic requirement of a Hindutva Politician. Our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi adheres to this ideology by proclaiming himself as Pradhan Sevak who is in his position to perform his duties as Administrator and someone who is responsible for National security and not hoard it as a position of Power to create personal wealth and fame. 

This has to be the prerequisite for any politician who claims to be a Hindutva ideologue. The ethical grounds they follow should resonate the kshatra dharma. If it is followed by every politician from Prime Minister to the grass root level MLAs and MPs India would definitely go back to its lost glory.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) which provides the cadre base for the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) strives for the same outcome as written as the conclusion of their Prayer. 

विजेत्री च नः संहता कार्यशक्तिर् विधायास्य धर्मस्य संरक्षणम् । परं वैभवं नेतुमेतत् स्वराष्ट्रं समर्था भवत्वाशिषा ते भृशम्

Translation: May intense and everlasting devotion to our Dharma ever enthuse our hearts. May our victorious organised action, by Thy Grace, be wholly capable of protecting our dharma and leading this nation of ours to the highest pinnacle of glory.

It’s the responsibility of the BJP workers to remember the above prayer and realise why they are there. If BJP is after all what they claim to be cadre based party, its the responsibility of the cadre to chose their MLA, MP candidate based on his Samskara(practices in his personal lifeand how well they are in performing and adhering to their Kshatra Dharma and not resort to choosing leaders based on caste, wealth or dynasty.
