    NAMASKAR

    Namaste Everyone.


    I'm Nitin,a Hindu-Brahmin from India.19 years old.I'm basically here because I'm shocked to find that there actually are people who are proud of their culture,religion instead of being addicted to hedonistic activities(I'm using a lot of self-restrain here).If only more people could do this.

    At 19, as a college student you ought to be very liberal and accommodative, but you chose to be a narrow minded young man. You put your caste name right in your screen name, even if it is your real name you could have omitted the latter part of it. Shockingly you went ahead and spelt your caste in your introductory post!!!! Why so?

    With friends like you hinduism needs no other external divisive forces. Dont you ever realize that this is the very reason abrahamists are successfully poaching hindus? Im disappointed for sure.

    We need a moderator policy amendmenat that one should not express caste ( even if one is very proud of ones lineage) unless it is relevant to the post and indispensable to the content or issue of the post .

    A rather harsh post indeed!
    The word brahmin must sting some people more than it does others. But who am I to judge, for I have not walked in their shoes.

    I think I am right to be proud of my caste and will continue to do so.

    I don't want to start another caste vs no caste argument again on HDF. It has been talked to death on these forums.

    But for your suggestion, no, sorry we are not going to amend the moderator policy. I don't think caste should be downplayed. Caste or Jati is a part of every hindu, in particular Indian hindus. We are not going to punish those hindus who are proud of their caste.

    Thanks,
    satay

    Good decision. Hindus are sometimes harder on fellow Hindus regarding caste, more so than non-Hindus. Such attitude will only make us look defensive and give more ammunition for non-Hindus to attack us.

    Re: NAMASKAR

    I agree with Believer and Satay here. There is no reason to be offended just because someone mentioned his caste.

    Sting? No not really, you are speculative and heading in a wrong direction. Dhoni wont get stung if Ishant gets tomorrow a man of the match award would he, caste or not?


    You are missing the elephant in the room, the caste has been the only reason why hindus have been converting out and embracing less developed faiths out there, falling easy prey to the scheming abrahamists. Future of the land you live in is largely dependent on how rapidly the intercaste melting pot blurrs the caste divisions. See the larger picture. In a democracy numbers and only numbers count from Kerala elections to Kashmir expulsions, and mind you not emotions, pride or history.
    No worries. The silver lining here is the liberal attitudes of younger generation. They heroically lead the way and make the unwelcome traits that currently harm Hinduism disappear right in our generation, rest assured. The trend is robust in the western lands, only a question of time you all will follow our example. Wake up sir, don’t watch helplessly if your sister or daughter goes away with an abrahamist, make that gut wrenching event less likely, give her a wider range of options... Would you still support someone introducing him /herself as ‘I am x caste’ on this forum or would you rather promote Hinduism and downplay caste? Namaste.
