I have this in common with the RSS-parivar crowd: I favour Sanskrit education and mandatory reading of ancient epics. Because that may be the only way to counter the Hindu moral brigade.
Consider this (via desipundit): these nitwits are protesting the depiction of Krishna in a dating advertisement; they (the nitwits) define “dating” as “a social vice” and “Obscene behaviour indulged by young girls and boys under the pretext of meeting each other”, and say that “those advocating this concept are launching an attack on our culture.” I don’t know what they understand of the Krishna-Radha legend: did they think that Krishna and Radha were married, or even planning to get married?
Consider this hit job on Leela Samson and Kalakshetra, that I recently linked to: the author says “Teachers hand-picked by [Samson] teach Geeta-Govindam in a very vulgar manner”. Is he aware of the nature of the Gita-Govinda, which tries to “combine religious fervour with eroticism”?
The trouble is that most Indians, me included, learned the epics from our grandmothers or from Amar Chitra Katha, and those versions are — to understate things — Bowdlerised. So we imagine that, for example, Vyasa magically made two queens and a maidservant in Vichitravirya’s court bear children merely by staring at them, while the original Mahabharata has him go to their beds and do things the explicitly biological way.
It’s high time we restored our original Sanskrit epics to their full, uninhibited glory and force-fed them to our RSS-brainwashed public.
