I was feeling quite discouraged today by the Modi government's inaction on issues dear to the core Hindu constituency - accompanied by its meek capitulation to anti-Hindu forces, to the point that I was pessimistic about the continued existence of Hindu civilization itself in the long term.
Then, I read this interview with author Vamsee Juluri regarding his book "Rearming Hinduism".
It had been on my reading list for a while. Buried deep in the interview were profound answers to my deepest concerns for the future of Hindutva
and Sanatana Dharma.
I just happened to read the interview before going to bed - on a day that I've experienced a lot of pain and anger at injustice in this world and what I perceive as a great betrayal of Hindu hopes and aspirations by the Modi Sarkar.
Considering that I was/am a fervent champion of Modi Sarkar as representative of nothing less than a Hindu civilizational victory, disillusionment is but natural when one sees that the ephemeral #HinduUnity that elected it is being frittered away and perhaps our last opportunity
for Hindu civilizational survival & regeneration is being squandered.
These tweets also injected a dose of realism:
@sarkar_swati: Hindus will be defeated if they feel defeated. No avatar will ever protect you. Best not to expect too much from a leader
@sarkar_swati: Modi is the savior of Hindus - self defeating mentality. Hindus existed before him, will do so after him too
