Stop this fraud against Brahmins.




Tamilnadu government has arranged for tea parties for 17 lakh people

at a cost of 35 lakh rupees.



The objective is to dissolve caste differences and bring out an awareness

among people against discrimination.


A good step indeed.



This programme is also an indication

that Brahmins had no hand in caste discrimination.

The oppressions have been going on for ages among other castes

and Brahmins were not in the picture at all.

The hate campaign against Brahmins by politicians is a fraud that must be put to a stop.

Etthnai kaalam thaan yemaattruvaar indha naattile.



There are two issues that Dravidian politicians rake up against Brahmins.

One is that they (Brahmins) suppressed the lowers castes - which is not true and

proved untrue by the efforts that the government is taking up

in arranging for 'communal tea' among other castes.

The oppression and suppression is happening between other communities and castes.




The second issue is that Brahmins have appropriated all opportunities in education and jobs.

Job related education had been in vogue only for little more a century.

Though Brahmins gained access in to jobs in the initial period

due to boom in those opportunities,

it was not their making, nor was it intentional.



But even that scenario did not last long.

That was a time when other castes were engaged in their respective avocations

to make their livelihood.

Brahmins too did not give up their avocation

which was nothing but learning Vedanta and doing Purohit job.



But that did not last long.

Communal reservation was introduced in Tamil nadu (The then Madras Presidency then)

as early as 1854 when the first standing order on reservation was passed

requiring the collectors to divide subordinate jobs in their districts among principal castes.



Though that order was received with protests,

the 'communal GO' was passed in 1923

which, in addition to paving way for reservation in government jobs,

also scrapped the rule of knowing Sanskrit as compulsory

for those seeking admission in medical colleges.

This was done because it was thought that compulsory knowledge of sanskrit

helped Brahmins only.


Brahmins by their avocation in Vedic studies, learned Sanskrit right from young age,

whereas this necessity was not there for other castes.

But once this clause was removed, everyone from across the society was able to seek

admission into medical colleges.




That is why we had many doctors from other castes than from Brahmin community

even as early as at the time of Independence.

It also shows that learning skills were not confined only to Brahmins.

All are capable of learning as all castes attained their name and position due to some skill.



There had never been a need to reserve seats, to the detriment of Brahmins.

And with 69% reservation now in vogue in Tamilnadu,

the discrimination against

Brahmins is total in Tamilnadu.




Just take a look at the list of students who had made it to the top 100

in PG Medical exam 2008 conducted on 24.02.2008.

With nearly 70% reservation and only 30% going for General category,

only 2 OC students were able to find place in the top 100.

This means 28% of 30% general seats have been bagged by other castes only.

(the list given below)




The same is the case in UG medical and engineering streams too.

This is not a recent phenomenon.

Even before 69% was introduced, this was the scenario.

The list of students selected for the streams pasted in the Directorate at those times

was there for everyone to see how other castes only dominated.



Thus there is no stuff in the declaration that other castes can not compete with Brahmins.

To say so and to imply so by means of reservation,

the
politicians of the so-called self-respecting movement are only hurting

the self-respect of the people of other castes.


Will they realize?

Will the politicians stop this fraud agaisnt Brahmins?



- Jayasree.

High tea for 17 lakh villagers across TN


Chennai, April 22:


The government is planning a series of tea parties for 17 lakh people across 37,000 villages in the state in the coming months, according to a senior police officer. The officials call it social justice tea parties. The Rs 70 lakh Centre assisted project is aimed at dissolving caste differences, particularly dalit discrimination in the rural areas, said Dr. Prateep V. Philip, inspector general of police, social justice and human rights.


“A sum of Rs 35 lakh will be provided by the state government while the remaining by the Centre,” the officers said. Last year, the department had conducted over 600 tea parties in the state to bring awareness among villagers. Such parties are meant for people of different castes to spend time together drinking tea in the same kind of tumblers.


According to the inspector general of police social justice, tea parties are welcomed in rural Tamil Nadu and they create awareness among villagers.


The social justice and human rights wing of the state police has been waging a war against the existing two-tumbler system in certain pockets in the state. According to Dr Prateep V Philip, 12 police districts in the state are totally free of the evil practice of the two tumbler system in tea shops.


``We have reports that two tumbler system is not practised in Nilgiris, Tiruvarur, Thajavur, Kanyakumari, Coimbatore, Coimbatore Namakkal, Dharmapuri, Nagapatinam, Tirunelveli, Tuticorin, Pudukottai and Erode.


We will soon eradicate it,” he added. According to him, all district police heads have been asked to conduct a special drive against this and give wide publicity so that the fear of law would deter potential offenders.

Posting again to ensure it is posted.

Dear Sanathana Dharmist:

Namaskarams. I certainly respect you for the wealth of information that you have provided and plan to read all of them in coming months. I am a brahmin myself and I had many non-brahmin roommates during my studies and jobs in USA, who all had grievances to tell as how they were hurt by humiliating remarks made by brahmins at them. Some of those comments are very hurting and cannot be stated here. I was broad minded and respected people belonging to every dharma (prefer this term than caste) of Hinduism and also shared Vedic knowledge with everyone. But, most of my non-brahmin friends say that only about 10% brahmins are of good minded. A brahmin priest from whom I take Veda class also says that only about 25% brahmins are broad minded and rest all look down at others. Paramacharya of Kanchi had summarized in this article that "brahmin is responsible for ruining the Hindu society".

http://www.kamakoti.org/hindudharma/part3/chap6.htm

However, initial set of articles that I read from you show you as a broad minded brahmin who respect people belonging to all dharmas of Hinduism and your objective is to promote brotherhood among Hindus and spread the Vedic knowledge for the wellbeing of mankind. My email in yahoo is ramak31 in case you want to write a note to me.

Namakarams again.
Love and Regards,
Rama K.

Welcome Mr Rama.

There are many articles in this blog on the true status of the so-called domination of Brahmins. Particularly in Tamilnadu, there did not exist any large scale intimidation of other communities by Brahims. Whatever was reported pertained to isolated incidents and not a mind set as such.Such kind of incidents are found across all sections of the people and not just Brahmins.

Your friends are parroting dialogues that have been injected into the society, that is, they are not true. Probe them for details, I am sure they would back out. A reader wrote similar stuff in my blog and when asked to spell out what exactly happened, could not reproduce and just backed out. (Reader Kadambari in the comment section of this article:- http://jayasreesaranathan.blogspot.in/2013/01/kamal-hassans-vishwaroopam-as-bhasmasura.html?showComment=1360641906903#c4122568079717800394)

To help you get some quick ideas on this topic, read Malarmannan's article in this link:

http://jayasreesaranathan.blogspot.in/2009/05/tamil-brahmins-article-by-malarmannan_21.html

Read my series on whether Brahmins were bad :
http://jayasreesaranathan.blogspot.in/2012/03/were-brahmins-bad-sequel-to.html

So far 10 articles have been posted in this series. Look for the articles of this series in the archives given in the right hand side bar.

I suggest you to read this blog too.

Don't miss the comment section in this link. Last 6 + comments were by me in reply to a similar accusation on Brahmins by another popular blogger, Mr Senthil Raja. Please note that I am going by and would accept only historical and verifiable facts and not hearsay and propaganda material.
