BROKEN BHARAT (PARTITIONED INDIA) THAT TODAY LIES UNDER THE FOOT OF SUPREME COMMANDER ABDUL KALAM, A MUSLIM (PAKISTANI BY DEFINITION UNDER THE ACT OF PARTITION OF INDIA, 1947), STILL BEHAVES LIKE THE CONCUBINE OF ISLAM (AND ITALY).
FOR CENTURIES THE NATIVE HINDU WOMEN HAVE SENT THEIR MENFOLK TO BATTLE TO KEEP THE MOHAMMEDAN INVADERS AT BAY. THEY KNEW THE FATE OF THOSE CAPTURED BY THE FOLLOWERS OF MOHAMMED AND THE ANCESTORS OF TALIBAN.
AFTER EVERY INVASION, THAT TOOK PLACE REGULARLY LIKE THE MONSSOON RTAINS, THOUSANDS OF HAPLESS AND GRIEVING HINDU FEMALES, SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WERE DRAGGED OFF TO KABUL, GANZNI AND KANDAHAR AND RAPED ALONG THE WAY, FINALLY TO END UP IN "CATTLE" MARKETS WHERE THEY WERE STRIPPED NAKED AND TOUCHED, GROPED AND LEERED AT BY GAWKING AFGHANS AND THEN BOUGHT AS SLAVES AND CONCUBINES.
THE INVASIONS SAPPED THE ENERGY OF THE HINDU NATION TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT NEVER ONCE DID ANY ACT OF RETALIATION FOLLOW.
THIS EMBOLDENED THE MOHAMMEDANS TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT THEY COULD CONCEIVE AND THEN LAUNCH THEIR FIERCEST ATTACK ON INDIA AND HER SECULARISM IN 1947U AND WERE PROMPTLY REWARDED WITH ONE THIRD OF INDIA'S TERRITORY.
IN THOSE VAST AREAS, MILLIONS OF HINDUS LSOT HUMAN STATUS AND STANDING OVERNIGHT. THEY WERE SEEN BY THE FOLLOWERS OF MOHAMMED AS THE TALIBEN LOOKED AT THEM IN KABUL THE OTHER DAY AND JUST AS IDI AMIN OF UGANDA AND COL RABUKA OF FIJI LOOKED AT THEM.
THE EMACIATED HINDUS NATION BETRAYED THEIR WOMEN LIKE NOBODY ELSE IN HISTORY. THERE IS NO MEMORIAL TO THE BRAVE WOMEN WHO LOST THEIR HUSBANDS IN BATTLES AND BROUGHT UP THEIR ORPHANED OFFSPRING SINGLE HANDEDF IN A SOCIETY WHERE WIDOWHOOD IS CONSIDERED A CURSE.
THE NATION OUGHT TO PARY TRIBUTES TO THE HINDU WOMEN OF THE PAST AND EVEN PRESENT. WHAT A DEGRADATION THEY ARE BEING SUBJECTED TO RIGHT NOW CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO DECENT FEMALE IN THE HOUSE OF PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA AND THE PRESIDNET. BOTH WERE LOAFERS OF THIRD DEGREE AND IRRESPONSIBLE VAGABONDS. MAY BE NO DECENT WOMAN SAID "YES" TO THEIR PROPOSALS AND THEY HAD ONLY PROSTITUTES AND CHEAP WOMEN OF GUTTER IN THEIR YOUNGER DAYS.
WHAT DOES THE WHOLE WORLD THINK OF THE QUALITY, MORALITY AND DECENCY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN INDIA TODAY?
AS FAR AS POSSESSING NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS CONCERNED, EVEN SADDAM HUSSEIN OF IRAQ IS A PROUD COCK TODAY. BUT REAL MORALITY OF A NATION IS SEEN BY ITS TREATMENT OF WOMEN.
IN OUR CASE TWO EXAMPLES COME TO MIND STRAIGHTAWAY. THERE WERE THE RAJPUTS AND THE SIKHS. WHAT THEIR WOMEN WENT THROUGH IS A SUBJECT FOR SOME DECENT AND HONOURABLE HISTORICAN OF WHICH THERE IS NONE AMONG THE HINDUS AND SIKHS. HENCE NO MEMORIAL TO HONOUR THEM.
TGHE RAPJUT WOMEN COMMITTED JOHAR THREE TIMES IN AS MANY CENTURIES IN CHITOD. IS THEIR A DECENT MEMORIAL TO HONOUR THEIR MEMORY THERE?
THE SIKH WOMEN WERE SUBJECTED TO THE FULL BEASTLY ONSLAUGHT BY THE FOLLOWERS OF BLOODTHIRSTY MOHAMMED WHO DID NOT SHRINK FROM IMPALING LITTLE INFANTS, BRICKING THEM ALIVE, BEHEADING THEM AND EVEN THRUSTING THEIR TINY HEARTS INTO THE MOUTHS OF THEIR CHAINED AND SHACKLED FATHERS. ALAS THOSE SCENES ARE CONFINED WITHIN THE GURDWARAS ONLY WHILE HINDU TEMPLES SHOWS NOTHING OF THE SACRIFICES MADE OVER THE CENTURIES BY WOMEN OF BHARAT. THEREFORE FOR HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF INDIANS, STILL LIVING AT THE LEVEL OF CATTLE, SONIA KHAN FROM ITALY IS A GODDESS.
THE FOLLOWING ACCOUNT ON THE GLORY OF SIKH WOMEN IS AN EYE OPENER. ONE DAY, WHEN THE HINDU CAN WALK FREELY IN AYODHYA AND NORTH KASHMIR, THIS LITTLE NARRATIVE (BELOW) WILL BE COMPULSORY SCHOOL TEXT FROM KERALA TO KASHMIR.
PLEASE READ ON AND BE INSPIRED. WE HAD A GLORIOUS PAST AND EVEN MORE NOBLE AND GLORIOUS NATIVE WOMEN WHO ONCE LIVED IN INDIA TILL THEIR OWN MEN DISHONOURED AND DEGRADED THEM.
..................The Power And The Glory
...................By Ek Ong Kaar Kaur
.................Tuesday, February 18, 2003
Men's stories are public. Women's stories are private. Men commit great feats in a burst of energy that are sung and talked about for hundreds of years.
Women slowly and consistently nurture and build their children, their families, their communities and their visions. It is easy to point to a man's accomplishments. It is much more difficult to point to a woman's. Yet, the Gurus understood that men and women both participate equally in the play of Creation; that both are necessary.
In Sikh history, it is easy to identify the public, male stories that show the power of the Khalsa consciousness. Yet, with every male story there is a hidden side - the private world of the Khalsa woman.
The "Chali Mukte": The "Forty Liberated Ones."
(WOULD ABDUL KALAM AND SONIA KHAN OF INDIA HAVE HEARFD OF THEM?
-OWNER WEB SITE)
Forty of Guru Gobind Singh's men deserted him at Anandpur. They were desperate and starving, afraid to die, afraid for their lives. They were so concerned with their own survival that they willing wrote and signed a letter denouncing their Guru. When they arrived home, rather than finding wives joyful for their Return, happy that they were alive, what did they find? Wives who were appalled that they had deserted Guru Gobind Singh.
The male side of this story is that the men returned to fight for the Guru and died in the battle, liberating their souls in the process. But the hidden story is that the consciousness of their Khalsa wives is what inspired them to do it.
The Khalsa women consciously chose widowhood. They would have rather borne the burden of seeing their husbands dead, of being left with the sorrow of being widowed, of raising their children alone, of having to find their economic security in the absence of a husband - they would have rather endured all this than to see their husbands walk away from their destinies and betray their Guru.
These women knew - the duty and role of a Khalsa wife is to serve the soul of her husband and deliver him to his destiny and to God and Guru no matter what.
Who liberated these men?
No - it was the grace, security, wisdom, blessing, support and courage of their wives that allowed them to be liberated. It was the meditative discipline, the trust in the Divine, the attunement with God's Will through the experience of their own Spirits that allowed these women to look their husbands in the eye and say - you are dead to us, no matter what. Go back and >>stand with your Guru or leave.
Minus the spiritual understanding of the women, the 40 Liberated Ones would have never returned to their Guru and would have gone through lifetimes of karma to repay the mistake. These Khalsa women understood non-attachment, security in the Divine, living in the Will of God, loyalty to the Guru so well that they could fearlessly send their husbands to their death, knowing that it was better for their husbands to die in service of the Guru than to live any other way. And the pain of losing their husbands was less to them than the pain of seeing their husbands lose their path to God.
Publicly, the valor of the men prevailed. Privately, the wisdom of the women prevailed. And it was this joint consciousness, valor and wisdom, male and female, that displayed the true power of the Khalsa.
Mata Gujri ji: Wife of Guru Teg Bahadur, mother of Guru Gobind Singh.
Guru Gobind Rai assumed the Guruship at the age of nine. During those early years of his life, his father, Guru Teg Bahadur, traveled and taught. The responsibility for training Gobind Rai was left in the hands of his mother, Mata Gujri Ji.
What kind of woman must she have been to be chosen by God to teach and guide Gobind Rai so that he would be capable of assuming the Guruship?
He was a human boy, but he had the most divine mother who instructed him in the ways of wisdom so thoroughly that he was ready to take on the responsibility for his destiny when he was nine years old.
God works through a woman's touch. Man is what woman creates him to be. Gobind Rai was what he was, but the destiny of his soul was entrusted to Mata Gujri Ji's care. It was the touch of his mother through which God could awaken him.
And didn't the Gurus teach us - those who are truly married are one soul in two bodies?
If this is Divine Truth, can we possibly say that Mata Gujri Ji and Guru Teg Bahadur were one soul in two bodies?
One mission with two faces - the public and the private, the male and the female, the conscious and the subconscious, the power and the wisdom?
If marriage creates us as one soul in two bodies - then what is the difference between Guru Teg Bahadur and Mata Gujri Ji except that they had two different jobs to do, two different times and spaces, yet sharing one light between them?
She was the woman who created the man who created the Khalsa. And so powerful was her touch that Gobind Rai was ready to lead when he was a nine-year-old boy.
The Panj Piaré: The names of the Panj Piaré are inscribed in the heart of every Khalsa. Bhai Daya Singh, Bhai Dharam Singh, Bhai Mohkam Singh, Bhai Himmat Singh, and Bhai Sahib Singh. Their act of total surrender and devotion, of being willing to give their heads to the Guru, is celebrated every year at Vaisakhi. It was through their selfless courage, absolute love,and total fearlessness that the Khalsa came to life.
But do we know the names of their mothers and what their mothers did to raise them with such a consciousness?
Everyone has the Light of the Divine within them. That is never the question. But to live that Light unto death - that is a matter of training and the mother is the first training ground of the soul.
What values did their mothers instill in them? What discipline? What stories? How did their mothers teach them? What did they teach them?
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we had a parenting book for Sikhs based on how these mothers raised these boys? The boys who became the Panj Piaré and initiated the order of the Khalsa? Truly, they must have had Khalsa women as mothers, even though the Khalsa had not yet come to life.
So, now we have this debate about women doing seva in the Golden Temple, and I think about the anguish of the Panth: where has our glory gone?
Where are the great, selfless acts of valor and courage that show us the Khalsa spirit still lives?
Perhaps the simple truth is the public acts of Khalsa men are missing because the importance of the private strength of the Khalsa woman has been forgotten.
The stories of the Khalsa women are lost because they are quiet and patient stories, stories of endurance and duty, stories, ultimately, that are difficult to tell, difficult to point to - until a man created by the touch of a Khalsa woman delivers his Spirit in the face of death.
Those who deny women seva in the Guru's Court and the blessing of leading the sangat in devotional kirtan are creating an unfortunate future, not just for themselves, but for the entire Panth. Those who would keep women in spiritual darkness are the true enemies of the Panth, trying to preserve the reigns of power for their own egos.
It was never Guru's will for the daughters of the Khalsa to be enslaved by tradition. Who has the right to tell a Khalsa woman what she can and cannot do for her Guru? Who can determine what spiritual acts will bring her to her full spiritual awakening? What person has the authority to deny her the blessing of seva, of the selfless service that will clear her karma, awaken her soul, and bring her to an understanding of her destiny?
When the day comes for the Khalsa nation to truly rise in its glory, greatness and spiritual sovereignty, it will be Khalsa women who lead the way - women who have crowned themselves as Princesses of Guru Gobind Singh and live in the nobility, dignity and grace of the 10th Master.
Women who, with their loving touch, transform their homes into the Ghrist Ashram where meditation and practice of the Guru's teachings are the center of family life. Where all who need solace, healing and comfort are welcomed with open arms, warm food and kindness. Women who can train their sons and daughters in meditation and Gurbani so that their children do not become >>confused by doubt and maya, but have such a clear, direct experience of the Divine that they can fearlessly live to the calling of their Spirit and Destiny, even unto death.
For the Khalsa nation to come to life, those who have the destiny to give birth to it must realize their duty. And every Sikh has an obligation to do everything possible to give those Khalsa women a chance to wake up, own their power and change the world.
A COMMENT RECEIVED ON THE ABOVE: Every Sikh and HINDU male has the moral duty, not only an obligation, to do everything possible to encourage the NATIVE WOMEN OF BHARAT to recall their high status in pre-Barbarian (ISLAMIC) society and realise their power and POTENTIAL to change our decomposing INDIA (that is "Hindu" since Partition in 1947) that is being misruled by immoral top gangsters called the Prime Minister and the President who have FAILED to elevate and honour the NATIVE women.
ANOTHER COMMENT: What a soul stirring narrative. Thank you, glorious Sister, for this SUPREME contribution on the noble SIKH women who have shared their miserable lot with the betrayed HINDU women.
Indeed, a community that flogs its women in public and puts them behind veil and takes one, two or three to bed at Will, is doomed.
The Sikhs are proud to SHINE in glory, for their women are most honourable, equal, and SECOND TO NONE on earth.
However I should mention two occasions when I have HUNG my head in utmost SHAME.
First, the betrayal of the girls and women of Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Noakhali and North Kashmir.
Thousands were abducted and degraded and made to read "kalma" in alien Arabic that was not their noble mother tongue.
Second my shame in REFUSING to accept "Rakhri" ("RAKHI") from my sister since the HOLOCAUST of 1947 when our native girls and women were betrayed by the whole nation. I have the eternal regret, "As a brother and son I RAN AWAY."
May I say that here "I" means the whole SIKH Panth and the HINDU nation that used to be glorious based on our gallantry, chivalry and courage.
Today most Hindus and Sikhs are "Banya & Baboo". The former are millionaire businessmen and the latter are the office workers, the civil servants, teachers and university professors, doctors and office clerks.
I have yet to see a Memorial put up by ANYBODY to those betrayed Hindu and Sikh women and girls of 1947, some of whom jumped into wells to save their honour and the others were killed by their own fathers, who were themselves then hacked or beaten to death.
A nation or community that does NOT forget its defeat, and PUBLICLY honours its dead, and says, "Sorry" for betraying its WOMEN, is a great community, indeed.
........Our other "sacred cows" have nothing to do here.
This marvellour account ought to be on the web for the WHOLE WORLD to see- not just for the "baboos and bunyas" of the SMASHED Indian "coolie" (Hindu) race.
To see those betrayed WOMEN honoured I wish to see a suitable MEMORIAL put up in every State in India on the highest priority.
I know the collapse of the whole Hindu nation, admiring ABDUL KALAM and lying in dust in Ayodhya. We may well be sheep if we do not sit up.
1947 is neither a non event nor "history" for our nation. Somewhere along the line of history we MUST "exterminate or eliminate" the cowardly Hindu leaders.
Our India lies in three fragments today for one reason alone, not honouring our WOMEN. Neither is there a decent spouse in the Prime Minister's house nor in the President's.
Is there ANY OTHER country on earth, with such a VACUUM at the top?
