A few weeks ago, UP CM AkhileshYadav was addressing in an event organized by his one of the cabinet minister Pawan Pandey from Ayodhya on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lord Parashuram (from last few years they have started this culture to woo UP Brahmins unlike their known face for the whole time event manager of a special community).
He painted the gathered audience as highly talented and revered in society and recalled the great contribution of Brahmin to the society since immemorial and regarded high respect of what Brahmin guided and preached to the generations.
During her tenor as UP CM,Mayawati’s Brahmin card is known to all and in fact the very reason of her triumphant victory and of course the ouster from the rule in the UP assembly also. BJP’s oust in UP is nothing but the love of Brahmins to these state centric parties who wooed them with respective social engineering of caste and vote percentage.
Rivalry among regional parties to attract the vote of Brahmin and use of political parties of the intellect of Brahmin as their think tankers to play the strategic role in the party activities is meager on the part of latter not only because of the Brahmin’s lost intuition and self-respect but also the gone sense of the intellectual and spiritual highness entangled with inborn spirit of cultural purity which led the society for centuries and guided the generations.
The community which was a guiding force among the society paving the way for the integration of societal values by providing or assuming historical leadership; represented the society with core spirit of nationalism is now betting their community respect and pride in flattering and appeasing of the betrayal forces of the country.
It’s not only a question of a lost pride or societal respect but an alarming threat to the community of their accumulated goodwill and after all holding the credit of being culprit of a national loss by facilitating tawdry leadership having great inure of anti-nationalism and a divisive politics of caste.
Brahmin need to look their glorious history of pride and reverence that society bestowed on them not for the role of a priest or Pundit but for the great contribution to the nation building and guidance to the leadership.
