Often people who call themselves progressive consider Dharma and Majhab to be the same. There are many meanings of Dharma or Majhab, such as the way of heaven and attainment of God and which the founder of Dharma has told. In many places, it also comes in the sense of faith.

Dharma and Majhab do not have the same meaning nor does faith and belief, which is discussed below:

In the Vedic period, the name ‘ Sanatan Dharma’ is found for the religion of the Indian subcontinent. ‘Sanatan’ means – eternal or ‘perpetual’, meaning one who has neither beginning nor end. Sanatan Dharma is basically Indian religion, which was spread all over Greater India (Indian subcontinent) at one time.

Dharma is often translated as “duty”, “religion” or “religious duty”, but has a deeper meaning. The word comes from the Sanskrit root “dhri” which means “to sustain” or “that which is integral to something” (e.g. dharma of sugar is to be sweet, fire to be hot). A person’s dharma consists of duties that sustain him according to his innate characteristics which are both spiritual and material, generating two corresponding types:  Sanatandharma – duties performed according to one’s spiritual (constitutional) identity as atman and are thus the same for everyone. Varnashrama-dharma – duties performed according to one’s material (conditional) nature and are specific to the individual at that particular time.

According to the notion of Sanatan-dharma, the eternal and intrinsic inclination of the living entity (atman) is to perform seva (service). Sanatan-dharma, being transcendental, refers to universal and axiomatic laws that are beyond our temporary belief systems Majhab

Majhab is a division of thought or fiqah in Islam. In Islam there are actually many schools. This is because the learned ulema from among the Companions of the Prophet, tabiin and tabi ‘Al-Tabiin who has sufficient conditions and the need for ijtihad are many. However, according to the opinion of the Sunni scholars, the sect of muktabar that can be made opinion and practicing for the public is only four schools, according to the qaul who rajih. For Sunni Islam, there are 4 schools that are Syafie, Maliki, Hanafi and Hanbali. These four schools have the perfect rules, methods and guides written by them in their respective books. It is an invaluable ingredient in the treasury of Islamic law. Other schools have not had enough rules to be used as guides in the field of law as the four. Muslims in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia mostly follow the Syafie sect. For Shi’ite Islam there are three main schools namely Jaafari, Ismaili and Zaidi.

Sanatan Dharma and Majhab have not the same meaning. As the Sanatan Dharma was designed as a way of life designed to best ensure the continuity of humanity on this earth and provide the entire population with spiritual sustenance. Dharma is functional objects. In the Rigveda, the word appears as an n-stem, dhárman-, with a range of meanings encompassing “something established or firm”. Majhab is a belief item. A Majhab is a school of thought within fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). The major Sunni have many Tasawwufī characteristics and express belief in the Qur’an and The While Nizārī belong to the “Imami jurisprudence” or Ja’fāriyya Madhab.

Dharma is natural due to the nature of human nature or human nature and its basis is the rule of God or creation. But Majhab is unnatural or unnatural by being human. There are many different and different types of Majhab and conflicting evidence of their being manned or created. A madhhab is a school of thought within fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). The major Sunni. Their madh’hab was established by Ibn Nusayr, and their aqidah is developed. While Nizārī belong to the “Imami jurisprudence” or Jafāriyya Madhab.

The symptoms of Dharma that Manu Maharaj has told are the same for all mankind and no civilized person can be opposed to him. Dharma is an important term in Indian religions. In Hinduism it means ‘duty’, ‘virtue’, ‘morality’, even ‘religion’ and it refers to the power which upholds the universe and society. The Manu-smriti prescribes to Hindus their dharma—i.e., that set of obligations incumbent on each as a member of one of the four social classes (varnas) and engaged in one of the four stages of life (ashramas). Majhab are many and are accepted only by those who follow the same Majhab. Therefore, they are not public and universal.

Dharma as an ethical category relating to freedom and responsibility. Dharma is a concept which was of great complexity and of paramount importance in Hindu thought prior to the modern period so to be righteous it is necessary to be virtuous. But since there are many Majhab so only the followers of that Majhab accept the same. So they are not public and universal. That is, just as morality has a continuous relationship with Dharma, in the same way, virtue has no relation with Majhab.

Dharma is an ethical form, so to be righteous it is necessary to be virtuous. But even after the completion of conduct, no human being can become a Muslim or a strongman till he brings faith or belief in the beliefs of that religion. Just as no matter how true God is a worshiper and a high-quality virtuous, he cannot become a Christian or a Muslim unless he believes in the Hazrat Jesus and the Bible or Hazrat Mohammad and the Quran Sharif.

It is Dharma that makes man a human being, or it is only by wearing Dharma, Dharma qualities and deeds, that human being attains manhood and becomes entitled to be called a human being. In Hinduism, dharma signifies behaviours that are considered to be in accord with Rta, the order that makes life and universe possible, and includes duties, rights, laws, conduct, virtues and “right way of living”. It is a key concept in Hinduism, and refers to the four proper goals or aims of a human life. The four purusarthas are Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kama (pleasure, love, psychological values) and Moksha (liberation, spiritual values).

Dharma means to act virtuously and righteously. That is, it means to act morally and ethically throughout one’s life. However, dharma also has a secondary aspect; since Hindus believe that they are born in debt to the Gods and other human beings, dharma calls for Hindus to repay this debt.

In other words, Dharma and manhood are synonymous. Because wearing Dharma is manhood. It has been said that deeds like eating, drinking, sleeping, producing children are the same between humans and animals. Only Dharma’s are special among humans, which makes humans human. Human beings without religion are like animals

But Majhab makes a man only panthai or Majhabi and superstitious. In other words, by believing in Majhab or Panth, a person becomes a resonant or Christian or Muslim of that Majhab and not a virtuous or a saint. A saint is a holy person. In Christianity, the word “saint” refers to any person who is “in Christ”, and in whom Christ dwells, whether in Heaven or in earth. Orthodox Christians and Catholics teach that all Christians in Heaven are saints, but some are worthy of more honor than others. Virtue is a behaviour showing high moral standards, a quality considered morally good or desirable in a person. A moral excellence, a positive trait or quality subjectively deemed to be morally excellent and thus is valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being. Personal virtues are characteristics valued as promoting collective and individual greatness.

Majhabi  are members of an untouchable caste who have left Hinduism. The word Majhabi is derived from the Urdu term Majhab (Majhab) means religion or sect).

Dharma connects human beings directly with God (Mukti) and it is mandatory for them to become righteous or virtuous for the attainment of salvation and for salvation, it is more important than virtue to follow the beliefs of that religion. Mukti means the freedom that all souls desire for. In other words, freedom from sorrow and miseries.  But for liberation of Majhab, it is mandatory for a person to become a pānthai or Majhabi.

Just as Jannat, this is “paradise, garden”, is the final abode of the righteous and the Islamic. Entrants will be greeted by angels with salutations of peace or As-Salamu Alaykum.will stand to intercede for the faithful), Mizan (the Scale), As-Sirāt (the Bridge), Jahannam (Hell) and Marj al-Jannat (Meadow of Paradise) Who considers Allah and Muhammad Sahib as their last Prophet, no matter how adulterous or sinful they may be will get Jannat while non-Muslims, no matter how godly or virtuous they are, they will surely burn in the fire of hell, because he has not brought his faith in Allah and Rasool, the God of Quran.

External signs have no place in Dharma because Dharma is not gender-lingam dharmakaranam means that gender (external sign) is not the cause of Dharma. We have come to such a pass that nobody wears any of the external marks of our Dharma’s, though some discipline as well as orderliness is essential in Dharma also. That is why different jatis and different ashramas have different functions and signs. According to the dharmasastras we must wear the dhoti or the sari in such and such a way or apply the mark to the forehead in a particular manner. All this is not meant for social discipline alone. There is a high purpose, that of purifying our inner life. Besides that there are six Pillars of Santam Dharma like Truthfulness, Mercy, Austerity, Cleanliness, Charity, and Spiritual Education.

However, it is mandatory for Majhabi to have external signs such as a Muslim cap and beard is mandatory for a Muslim. Besides that they have five Pillars like Profession of Faith (shahada), Prayer (salat), Alms (zakat), Fasting (sawm), Pilgrimage (hajj).

 Dharma makes man a (Pursharthi) man because it teaches wisdom to attain abhudaya and Moksha only by true conduct. Purushrthas (Sanskrit: पुरुषार्थ) literally means an “object of human pursuit”. It is a key concept in Hinduism, and refers to the four proper goals or aims of a human life. The four purusārthas are Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kama (pleasure, love, psychological values) and Moksha (liberation, spiritual values. All four Purusarthas are important, but in cases of conflict, Dharma is considered more important than Artha or Kama in Hindu philosophy. Moksha is considered the ultimate ideal of human life. But Majhab teaches man the lesson of laziness, because only by obeying the intentions of Majhab, salvation is taught in him as no concept of inherited sin in Islam. We are born without any sin or sinful conditions. Similarly if a child is born with any abnormal conditions, it is not a punishment of any sin of parents or forefathers. Salvation from sins is achieved through developing and understanding the purpose of life as established by The Holy Quran, gaining knowledge about sinful conditions through over 600 commandments of  the Holy Quran and making “righteousness” as the guiding principle of decision making.

Dharma makes man independent and self-independent by connecting people directly to God because he does not state the need for any intermediary or agent between God and man. Atman (Sanskrit)  आत्मन् means inner selfspirit, or soul. In Hindu philosophy, especially in the Vedanta school of  HinduismAtman is the first principle, the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain Moksha (liberation), a human being must acquire self-knowledge (Atma Gyan).

But Majhab makes a man dependent on others because he does not consider liberation without the recommendation of the promoter of Majhab. The World of Islam, shows that his great journey had at least two major aims: first to awaken and enlighten Muslim peoples by describing real situations in the Muslim world that extends into Eurasia, and second to elaborate a strategy for the liberation of Muslim peoples under the rule of Western great powers.

Dharma  teaches to sacrifice their lives to protect the interests of others, It is one of the key concepts in Indian thought It has been variously translated as ordinance, duty, right, justice, morality, law, virtue, religion, ethics, good works, code of conduct, and so on. While Majhab gives the message of sacrificing violence to kill the lives of other humans and animals for their own benefit, since the time of Prophet Mohammad, Muslims have sacrificed animals (qurbaani) on the day to honour Ibrahim’s spirit of sacrifice.

Dharma teaches man to love all beings; Dharma means the truth about love. To be a truthful, loving friend is the thing, love lets life through. Happiness is the spring, cherishing others is the river, if  you look carefully and sees clearly, and then you’ll see nothing is as it appears to be. There is literally nothing to worry about, nothing to be afraid of, to love all of yourself you have to love everyone, when you know how love works and you work with love, everything is love and everything works.

Whereas Majhab teaches man to eat the meat of animals and hatred of other Dharma’s. In Islamic law dhabīah (pronounced zabiha by the people from non-Arab Muslim countries such as Iran and Pakistan, ‘slaughtered animal’) is the prescribed method of ritual slaughter of all lawful halal animals. This method of slaughtering lawful animals has several conditions to be fulfilled. The name of God or “In the name of God” (Bismillah) has to be called by the butcher upon slaughter of each halal animal separately, and it should consist of a swift, deep incision with a very sharp knife on the throat, cutting the wind pipejugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides but leaving the spinal cord intact.

The method is used to comply with conditions stated in the Quran and in Islamic tradition. However regarding hatred of other Dharma’s by Majhab which is prevalent many Muslim scholars believe that Quranic verses such as “Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error” (and (Quran ) show that Islam prohibits forced conversion towards people of any religion but not about hatrednes. Those who follow Tawheed with Islamic guidelines derived from the holy Quran and Sunnah (practice of Prophet Muhammad) are known as Muslims whereas people denying Islamic teachings are termed as Kuffar (non believers) because of denying Quran and  Sunnah; whereas those who mix Tawheed with others (Gods) are referred as Mushrakeen.  So the whole identity of a Muslim lies how he is about Tawheed. If any person considers anyone as fit for worship except one God called Allah cannot remain Muslim rather turn to be Mushrik. That’s why we see that Muslims are very rigid to adore any person or any object except Allah.

Dharma eliminates discrimination and opposition and teaches unity by focusing mankind on a centre of public ethics and ideas as a human being. In Dharma there  exist some rule or law which ‘Enforces’ moral value and that it is natural to human person. The unity of humanity is one of the central teachings of the Dharma teachings state that since all humans have been created in the image of God, God does not make any distinction between people regardless of race or colour. Thus, because all humans have been created equal, promotes the unity of humanity, and that people’s vision should be world-embracing and that people should love the whole world.

But Majhab increases discrimination and opposition and eradicates unity by making their own separate batches due to their different intentions and duties. There are legalized discrimination, religious hatred, and systematic marginalization of a community in even Muslims. Malaysian Muslims – the Shias – perpetuated in the name of Islam. It demonstrates how a central government-derived fatwa (religious legal opinion) banning Shi’ism and the propagation of Shias teachings in the country since 1996 has been used to justify a range of human rights violations, not limited to the religious freedom of this minority group.

Dharma key beliefs shared among Dharma’s truth is eternal, Dharma is Truth and Reality, The Vedas are the ultimate authority, everyone should strive to achieve dharma, and Individual souls are immortal. The goal of the individual soul is Moksha. Dharma actually believes in one God, The Gods of the Dharma faith represent different forms of persons. Most Dharma has God or goddess such as Shiva, Krishna or Lakshmi to whom they pray regularly. Dharma shows the worship of God.

Whereas Majhabi differs from other Majhab by revealing the worship of promoter / guru / man etc. A madhhab is a school of thought within (Islamic jurisprudence).

The major Sunni madhhab are Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali. They emerged in the ninth and tenth centuries CE and by the twelfth century almost all jurists aligned themselves with a particular madhhab. These four schools recognize each other’s validity and they have interacted in legal debate over the centuries. Rulings of these schools are followed across the Muslim world without exclusive regional restrictions, but they each came to dominate in different parts of the world. Imam is an Islamic leadership position.

It is most commonly used as the title of a worship leader of a mosque and Muslim community among Sunni Muslims. In this context, imams may lead Islamic worship services, serve as community leaders, and provide religious guidance. In Yemen, the title was formerly given to the king of the country.

For Shi’a Muslims, the Imams are leaders of the Islamic community or ummah after the Prophet. The term is only applicable to the members of Ahl al-Bayt, the family of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, designated as infallibles.

By properly understanding the difference between Dharma and Majhab, human beings can easily make effort to do the best welfare works, faith, truth, reality,  goal, belief, prayer by accepting their thinking  and hence. It is called Dharma, so it is well-being of all in its observance.

The conspiracy to demolish and destroy the oldest and strongest culture of world started when the Mughal invaders came to conquer Bharat. Bharat, the richest and oldest civilization in the universe, used to follow the Sanatan Sanskriti which was enshrined in the four Vedas. The Vedas are encyclopedia, defining each and everything about the human beings, animals, birds, earth, sky, forests, rivers, oceans etc. In simple words, you can say that they provide solution to every problem in the universe.

The most astonishing and surprising fact is, who had such vast knowledge about each and everything in this universe. Whatever the NASA or other International agencies are telling us today, after research of decades, is already written or mentioned in the Vedas. The problem is nobody is able to read anddecode it. As and when, they are able to decode any part, they get surprised to see that how the discoveries made by presentday science are mentioned in a manuscript written thousands and thousands of years ago. Does it mean that whatever we are trying to discover now, was already known to someone who wrote Vedas? Yes, it was and the proof of it is in front of us.

We were made to believe that our culture and traditions are orthodox and illogical. Following are the few examples:      

  1. Cat crossing your way: Our parents used to tell us that if the cat crosses your way, while you are on road then you must stop for some time. The logic behind this was, the cat is a very fearful animal and when she sees a person on road, she gets scared and moves or jumpes to either side she feels safe. So, to avoid hurting the animal and save yourself from falling due to her sudden move, you were told to stop and wait till she reaches a safe place. It was merely a logical advice and no superstition was attached to it.
  1. Sneezing: We were told to wait for some time, if somebody sneezes while leaving home. The logic behind this was, while sneezing your heart stops working for a while and so you were told to wait for a few moments so that the heart functioning gets normal.
  1. Throwing copper coin in the water reservoir or river: Our parents used to throw copper coin in the river or pond. Now, the present-day science has accepted that drinking the water kept in copper jug is good for health and this was the reason why our ancestors used to throw copper coin in river or pond. Copper purifies the water and hence the copper coins were thrown with this intention.
  1. Worshipping peepal tree: We were told to give water to peepal and worship it as God. As we all are aware that the peepal tree is the only tree which gives us oxygen 24*7, our ancestors were very well aware about the benefits of this tree. So, to save it from cutting we were told that it is a tree under which God Vishnu takes rest. It was nothing but an attempt to save tree from being axed.

Actually, we were taught that everything is connected with God. Since, the people were not so educated at that time and it was difficult to make them understand the logic behind everything, our ancestors used simple method of connecting everything with God. We being god fearing society used to follow everything connected with God in letter and spirit. 

The invaders used such things to tell us that we are uneducated and orthodox and we believed them whereas factually everything was logical and scientifically proved.

I hope after reading the above points you would appreciate that our old traditions were scientific and logical. If you like this article, please give your feedback to encourage the author to come out with more such articles. Do like and share it, so that awareness amongst youngsters may be created and the propaganda of enemies may be demolished.


Today, many forces are working together to prove our sanatan culture, ideology and traditions, values and ethos as orthodox whereas the truth is all our traditions and rituals were not only scientific but also logical. To demolish the narratives being created by such enemies of Sanatan culture, we have decided to publish a series of articles to make our young generation aware about the truth.

It is not possible to mention all the traditions and rituals here but we will keep writing/ updating this information as and when we will receive any queries from public. This is the first article of this series and request all the readers to give feedback and point out if any discrepancy is noticed or found by them.


It is blamed that sanatan culture promote untouchability. This is absolutely wrong and a false narrative has been created. The genesis of untouchability lies behind the tradition of maintaining cleanliness. Our ancestors were so intelligent that they were aware about various diseases being spread due to close contact between two persons. The tradition of taking bath after going toilet, washing hands after doing any work, leaving shoes outside the house, washing hands, face and foot after coming from work or before having meals were started so as to maintain hygiene. All these things are constantly reminded to us throughout the day through advertisements by the government itself.

At that time distance was maintained from the person who used to collect garbage or clean toilets. Today’s generation may not be aware of this fact that a few decades ago many cities, especially small towns, didn’t have toilets which we are using today. The flush system was not there and therefore, faeces used to be collected manually from toilets. So, it was need of the hour to maintain distance from the person while performing the task. Though the so-called guardians of society manipulated the reasoning and created distance between communities so as to establish their supremacy over others. In fact, it was so, just due to the nature of work and to save others from coming into contact of any virus or bacteria. It was never with the intention to disrespect anyone. Since, our young generation has not seen that life style, they got trapped into the wrong propaganda being carried on by our enemies. Can anyone eat something from a vendor sitting near garbage dump or serving with unclean hands? Can they allow an untidy and unclean person to have meals with them? The reasons for which they will not allow so, were the reasons at that time also.


After death of a person, family used to do funeral before the sun set and people going in funeral used to take bath at the specified place while coming back, after completing the rituals. A quarantine period of twelve days was prescribed, during which none of family members was allowed to go outside the house and all the family members used to read religious books or path of Garud Puran was done. Such religious rituals were helpful for the bereaved family in coming out of grief and provided strength. These all rituals were established to avoid transmission of disease further in village/ city.

In those days, transportation facilities were not so fast. People used to reach from one place to another place in couple of days, depending upon the distance. So, the relatives residing at far places used to come and console family members during twelve days period.

Emotional bonding was so strong that, during these twelve days’ quarantine period, the bereaved family was not supposed to do anything rather the relatives, neighbors and friends used to stay there and take care of everything.


In past, according to our culture and tradition, we used to send the pregnant lady to her parental house. There was a sound logic behind that. When a girl gets married, the matrimonial house belongs to her and she has to take care of that as a house master. As a house master she cannot take full rest or follow the guidelines of doctor but the case is entirely different in her parental house. Moreover, during first few years of marriage, the girl remains more inclined towards her parents and parental house and feel more relaxed and happier there. A happy and calm state of mind of would-be mother is beneficial for child’s health.

But what we did? We were told that our culture and traditions are wrong and burdensome for girl’s parents and accordingly, we started dis-respecting them. The result of which is in front of us. Today, mostly ladies give birth to their child in husband’s house. Now, the point is, we want nuclear families, secondly, we claim that the girl has equal rights on her husband’s house after marriage. When the girl is equal owner of house, then she is supposed to manage all the affairs herself as house master. In such circumstances, the pregnant lady finds it difficult to manage the house and her pregnancy issues together and also her office work, if working. During this period, she gets irritated naturally, due to medical reasons also, coupled with the burden as mentioned above, then what will be the impact on the child?

So, basically the tradition was established for the wellbeing of both the mother and child.

I hope after reading the above points you would appreciate that our old traditions were scientific and logical.

Sanatan Sanskriti is the oldest in the world. We had been following traditions and culture which were derived from our four Vedas, “The Rigveda”, “The Yajurveda”, “The Samaveda” and “The Atharvaveda”. These are generally called as Chaturvedas containing the whole philosophy about the human being, nature, animals and the universe. There is nothing in this universe which you can’t see and understand from these manuscripts, written by the great Maharishi Ved Vyas. The surname called Chaturvedi- a person having knowledge of all the four Vedas, Trivedi- a person having knowledge of three Vedas, Dwivedi- a person having knowledge of two Vedas, are derived in this manner.

The allegation of following casteism on Hinduism is absolutely false and it was a dirty mind game of some selfish persons. Whatever is being, shown to us today in various movies, TV serials depicting our ancestors as caste conscious is not correct. Our culture and tradition is very rich and it always recognized the Karma theory, which means the persons were known by their work/ karma and not by any caste. The caste system which we are following today has been created by us only and not by our Sanatan Sanskriti. At that time, the persons used to be known by their Karma and that’s why they were called as Chaturvedi, Trivedi, Dwivedi. It was not a caste but it was their qualification by which they were known. Later on, due to our foolishness we started calling their descendants also by same qualification, whether they had it or not. Another example is surname “Sood”. Basically, Sood means interest. Persons who used to lend money to others on interest were called sood.

Even today, we recognize a locality by the type of business being carried on there and name it accordingly, e.g. Sarafa Bazar, Sabji Mandi, Loha Mandi and alike. So, the area is known by the nature of work carried out there. In some cases, localities are known by castes but again the castes are derived from the nature of work the person used to do. The caste system came into being because we started knowing the person by the name of his father instead of his Karma. Slowly it became surname even if the person is not doing that Karma. With the spread of education, awareness and available opportunities people started doing jobs/ businesses other than ancestral work but were known by their old Karma, i.e. ancestral work which became surname, to put it in easy language.

Education system was Gurukul based. It was not as shown in various movies. Everyone was allowed to get education without any difference of caste or creed because at that time no such system was followed. If you check out the names of old rishis or saints, their names are today referred to as gotras of their descendants.   They did not have surnames. They were known by the qualifications they had earned. Many such rishis became king and many kings became rishis. Glaring example is Rishi Bhagirath ji who was from Ikshwaku family of Lord Rama and brought Ganga (The holy river) on earth and Maharishi Valmiki ji. 

Some powerful, foolish and corrupt people misinterpreted the traditions and those wrongful interpretations started spreading slowly. Since, human beings are born selfish, so they started interpreting the traditions which suited them best and also to prove their supremacy over and above the other people. The population was less and the villages were located too far from each other. Every village used to have one or two persons who got education from gurukul. Such persons used to tell the villagers about the traditions, whatever pleased them, and their misinterpretation proved detrimental for all the villagers because there was no other person to correct them. With the passage of time such wrongly interpreted rituals became tradition of those villages and the powerful person of other villages started following them because it suited them the most.

This is how the wrong rituals started spreading and in long term were called as traditions. Various traditions which were made with scientific reasoning, e.g. the tradition of taking bath or getting all the family members bald after coming from last rites, washing hands and face in day-to-day life after reaching home and so on & so forth, were called as traditions of brahmins only whereas these were applicable to all the families in society. During old days, there were fewer medical facilities and contagious diseases were more prevalent, so these traditions were made with logic and reasoning but as time passed, people discarded these traditions as being orthodox and conservative. People used to keep distance from person who came to pick up garbage but later on it was termed as untouchability. Please tell me whether you take bath after cleaning your toilet? I know, yes. Similarly, the reason to keep distance was due to unhygienic and dirty work and not due to person’s caste.

Now, you can easily understand the scientific and logical reasons behind our traditions as during the pandemic of COVID 19 we are following the same protocol of our old sanatan traditions. Casteism is the byproduct of some handful people, who propogated it to establish their supremacy above other persons and also for their vested interests and it is being carried on till today after so many centuries.


“Marriages are fixed in heaven and celebrated on earth”

The most common and famous saying we hear in our families since childhood but do we really believe in it? I doubt! Marriage is not a solemn union of two persons rather it is of two families who must share all the sentiments, emotions, feelings of happy moments together in future. Those who believe it as a union of only two persons and not of two families, are basically adopting the western culture which calls it a contract and nothing beyond that.

For constructing a strong building, it is necessary to lay a very strong foundation and it is applicable to relationships also. As per the Indian tradition, our ancestors were strong believer in union of two families and that was the reason due to which couples used to think about the whole family, it’s sentiments, emotions, feelings before taking any decision to end a relationship. The closeness of relations was so that the bride used to tell and share her issues/ problems within her in-law’s family and least were the instances when such issues reached to the bride’s parental home. In case of dispute, generally the groom’s family members used to take side of the bride and it was the reason the bride used to feel like at her home at the very beginning of her married life. In few cases where the groom’s family behaved the other way, the society and extended families helped in resolving the problems but divorce was never considered to be a good option.

In the past, the issues and problems were used to be resolved without the intervention of courts because moral values, emotions, sentiments, feelings were given due and high weightage. It was considered that break up of couple affects not only the couple but the two families and all the people around them who were emotionally attached to them. With the passage of time and during the rule or Mughal invaders, Britishers, we started shredding our customs, values, ethos because they made us believe that we were orthodox and they have great culture and high values. Our Sanatan philosophy of inclusiveness also forced us to adopt everything taught to us and we never doubted the intentions of others. We were so innocent that we never realized their fraudulent and malafide intentions of destroying our rich heritage and culture.

If you want to destroy any country just make those people believe that they are inferior by attacking their education system and culture. This is what happened with us. Mostly all the traditions followed by us were logical and scientific but those invaders made us believe that we were orthodox. Now many of our traditions have proved to be scientific and logical that the world has started following them. You might have come through many such messages through social media platforms during current lockdown period. We will try to bring a series of articles to prove the worthiness of all our old traditions. 

Here we are restricting our self to the specific topic of Sanatan and Western culture- impact on married life. Western culture follows the tradition where the parents are responsible to take care of child only till, he/ she attains majority. They are not supposed to take care for the whole life. Even they are least bother to save money for education or other needs of children. They earn and spend. They give their children whatever is available with them. They never cut their expenditure to provide something better to their child. If they don’t have money, they never try to fulfil the demands of children. No extra effort is put in by them to save money for future because their culture is entirely different. Here you can say that those countries are providing free health and education facilities, yes it might be true but that is what I call difference in culture. You see our ancestors never used to beg. They always tried to manage with the resources available with them. They tried to save money for future safety of children. Now the point is that you enjoy your early age/ life in Indian culture where your parents give you everything they can afford to, though by cutting down their own expenses, ambitions, needs, desires and when you grow up and get married you want stay in separate home with your spouse.

If your parents would have thought that way, they would have saved the entire money for their old age days instead of fulfilling your demands and ambitions. So, what we want to say is that you must follow one of the two cultures i.e. either Western or Indian. Here many of you might like to adopt western culture due to the environment created around us during last few years and which also includes convent culture. You like to wear the western cloths but not ready to be independent as western students does. In west mostly both parents are working and the children are left in crèche and, those going school manage the things on their own. They least have house maids to help them out or eat mother’s prepared food. There working children also do household chores after coming from job and here, if you are working, you want your mother to do all the work because you feel tired after doing job. There married working women also does household chores may be with the help of husband, here you wish that your mother in law must do all that work.

No issues if you are working and your mother in law look after the home but have you ever thought what desires, ambitions she has? Have you ever tried to fulfil the desires, ambitions which she sacrificed while upbringing your husband? Even if the case is different still, she might have other desires, ambitions to be fulfilled and may be sacrificing because of you and you just inform her about your plans but never asks her, what to do. The day you start asking your parents (including in-laws) you will feel an unseen happiness inside you, which will be nothing but only the blessings coming from heart of your parents. So, just be humble and feel the joy of giving, without giving anything. Nurture your joint family bonding and have a heaven like feeling here itself.
