IS IT A CHANGE IN SOCIETY?
I have a fortune to view the NAHUSHA (a snake in puranas) falling down head-long between 1940s to 2012.In other words, how erranuously this Indian society ,where the root of dharma is emmbedded, under went a drastic degradation, in the style of life, taking the adoption of wrong things from the west and at the same time ,ignoring the progressive things from the same place. The responsibility squarely is placed only ,on the wrong money, giving vent to wrong assumed status, developoing their children towards mistic and mystry sectors.
There was single earnings, single woman, contented life, conspicuous life style, good technology of progress, responsible elders in all fields, caring for the society and the people, with unsolicited and no-nonsense-publicity contributions. Persons were appreciated for their worth and not for things they do not possess or as super human beings. Eulogism was extinct and pure great souls were considered as ROLL-MODELS. Then and in every era since the world is in existence, there were all factors, which you see today, however that discretion prevailed even among the uneducated in villages, since for ANALYSIS OF MIND EDUCATION IS NOT A TOOL AT ALL. EDUCATION is taking place in this vast university and people are learning for doctorates, unlike todays EDUCATION OF EGO, presuming conclusions of errors.
Pain and pleasures were endured; pestilences and perrenial attacks too existed; human needs were there and there were people doing all kinds of round-abouts; good and bad co existed, but never the BAD was creative enough; discipline, conduct, character, cunningness, culpable homiside, treachery, torments, dharma, help, human elements etc etc did exist ,yet, majority stood by GOOD. THERE WAS CONSCIOUS, INSPITE OF THE GREEDS; THERE WAS REMORSE, IN THE MIDST OF RUMBLINGS AND RANCOURS; The exposure by any agency was well within the lights and frames and there was no over exposures as of today. The world was growing. THEN SUDDENLY INDIA STARTED SLIPPING FROM THAT ATTITUDINAL GROWTH TO DEGRADATION, BECAUSE THERE WERE BAD EXPOSURES, ADVERTISEMENTS, MARKETING, MEDIA TWISTS AND TURNS AND MOVIE MAKERS AND MOVIE IDOLS, WHO IMPLANTED THE WRONG LESSONS TO THE RIGHT PERSONS, AND FROM THAT DAY INDIA IS REELING UNDER ONLY PAINS QUOTES AS OPIUM-STAINED-PLEASURES.

IT HAS BECOME A STATUS THAT ONCE ACCEPTED IN THE SOCIETY ALL CAN WRITE OR SAY SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING, IN DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE TO REVEAL THE COMAFLAGED AUTHORITY ON SUBJECT, UNMIND FUL ,OF THE REAL-SENSE IN THE SUBJECT. IN THIS COUNTRY NO ONE WILL QUESTION, RATHER TO SEE THEIR NAMES IN MEDIA WILL DESCRIBE DOWNTRODDING THEMSELVES AND EULOGISING SUCH WRITINGS OR SAY. NO ONE WILL VERIFY. NO ONE WILL GO TO CHECK IT UP. IF IT IS SAID BY 1000 YEARS AND EARLIER PEOPLE, IN UNISON, PEOPLE WILL RAISE THE VOICE IN WRITING AND VOCIFEROUSLY, BRANDING THOSE WORDS AS “QORDS OF ILLETERACY”. “HERDS INSTINCT ON BOTH TERMS AND ISSUES. IF IT IS BY KAMBAN, OR VALLUAR OR VYASAR OR ANY OTHER PERSON, IT IS NON-SENSICAL. HOWEVER IF IT IS BY SUJATHA, WELL ITS GODS SPELL. IF TTUNED AND DLIVERED BY MUTHUSAMI DIKSHIDAR OR KABERDAS, IT IS BOREDOM. HOWEVER, IF SAME THING IS PACKED IN A NEW BOTTLE WITH LITTLE EXERTION, WELL HE IS GENIUS AND BORN KING OR GOD HEAD. THESE QUALITIES WERE NICELY PRINTED AS PARKINSONS” LAW. WATER CAN FILL ONLY TO THE LEVEL OF THE VESSEL. SO TOO WHAT WAS WRITTEN AND READ BY ME AN ARTICLE OF SUKI SIVAM ABOUT THE BEHAVIOURS OF THE OLDER AND THE YOUNGER, QUOTING DHARMA. IT DID APPEAR TO ME AS HALF BAKED SATAN RECITING THE BIBLE.
In an earlier write up he spoke about, the respect payable to wife than his parents elsewhere. Now in a magazine, that too in a DEEPAVALI MALAR 2012, he wrote an article saying that old Vedic scriptures had spoken about as dharma, ASHRAMA living concept; the elders after performing the duty of marriage to children shall go to forest as couple or alone called then as VANAPRASTHAM; NOW SINCE FOREST IS EXTINCT OR FAR AWAY, OLD AGE HOME IS VANAPRASTHA; this arrangement is in order which would leave young ones peaceful life and balance of life in home would also be achieved . WHAT AN HALF BAKED SOLUTIONS RENDERED REVEALING HIS KNOWLEDGE ON SCRIPTURES AND HIS ADMINISTRATIVE COUNSEL!
Thank god, SUKI SUBRAMANYAM HAD GONE AWAY ONLY BECAUSE OF IN ANTICIPATION OF SUCH MAN-SLAUGHTER. He lectures after reading something, as so many others do today and its OK, since so many eke out their living on scriptures, mantras and Vedas, in short SRUTHIS AND SMRITHIS. But misquoting the scriptures is too harsh and reveals the AVIVEKAM. VARNASRAMA AND ASRAMA DHARMA, FOUR AND FOUR WERE PRESCRIBED FOR PROFESSION AND THE WAY OF LIFE FOR GRUHASTHAS AND YOGINSAND VANA PRASTHAM IS ONE SUCH RETIREMENT OR SCLUSIONS TO CONCENTRATE ON MOKSHAM. Both are certain STATUS, on conduct of the prescribed rules, modifiable or named after the path progressed. IT WAS NEVER SAID THAT “THAT IS THAT’ HAD TO BE. IF YOU DON’T RECITE THE SRUTHIS AND DO YAGNA YOUR OFFICE IS NOT THAT OF BRAHMIN; IF YOU REMAIN A GENERAL OR A SOLDIER FOR THE NATION, YOUR PROFESSION IS SHATRIYAN;IF YOU TRADE YOU ARE A VYSIAN; AND IF YOU TAKE TO AGRICULTURE AND PROVIDE FACILITIES FOR THE SOCIETY TO LIVE HAPPILY, YOU ARE A SHUDRAN. WHO MADE IT AS CASTE IS BEYOND ACTUAL CONFIRMATION; BUT THE BRITISH DID IT FOR RECRUITMENT TO SERVICE AND BRANDED INDIANS AS HINDUS AND BRANDED THE PROFESSION AS CASTE, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
Even now our villagers call the farms and surrounding thopes (trees and plants0 as KADU, meaning FOREST. For us FOREST IS NOT FAR AWAY FROM OUR RESIDENCE. WE LIVED ORIGINALLY WITH THE “KADU AND KAZHANI” ONLY. “KADU ALSO HAS ANOTHER MEANING VIZ “BURIAL GROUND which was not far away from residence. The chieftain, the King, the head of the family in the Hindu Undivided family, so many Male and female died only from the residence and villages or kadu and went to kadu. VANAPRASTHAM do mean ‘praseetha mumukshu” viz before the moksham. There were
1 one life of Brahmachari, defined that can be till end of life
2 one life of gruhastham viz married till the end
3 one life of vana prastham with or without wife with restricted life, not tantamounting to sanyasam, but because it’s a renounced life, a step ahead of sanyasam
4 one life of sanyasam-an absolute renunciation ,can take root from Brahmachari, Gruhasthan and vana prasthan
5 a sanyasi is supposed stay as such till leaves the body but retractions is despicable but never a taboo
So too a vanaprasthan can die from home and still be an active body worker, or can remain a witness without old actions, renouncing the world affair. Can be a true Grahasthan too; THIRU NEELAKANDA NAINAR WAS A GRUHASTHAN AS WELL AS A VANA PRASTHAN AS WELL AS A SANYASI AND BY BLESSINGS OF SIVE CAME BACK TO GRUHASTHASRAMAM.
On the contrary the scriptures of the land had maintained that the Dharma of a son and daughter in law is to protect the parents of son even if in doldrums. The contrary will see to drastic consequences for failure to do so. The neethi sastra tell a lot on so many and had never said that “SEND ELDERS TO FOREST”. I CAN QUOTE SO MANY VERSES BUT I WOULD LIKE TO END HERE AND AM SATISFIED TO TELL EVERYONE, PLDONT FOLLOW ANYTHING THAT SUITS YOU BECAUSE SOME LITTLE JEADS SAID SO. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
