The Indian black British, who look down upon the Indian culture, not only keep making noise about some aspect of the Sanatan culture but also always resort to such ridiculous fallacies to prove its norms and dimensions as unscientific and trivial. Not only are they immaterial but they are also contextless.
Every year in the months of October and November, the scale of pollution in Delhi and NCR reaches dangerous levels. Even breathing becomes difficult in Delhi and NCR. To deal with this pollution, the governments and local bodies sitting in Delhi, instead of solving this man-made problem by working on a long-term plan, neglect their duties by citing stubble burning for 10-15 days in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan as the reason. .
One laughs when the suffocating atmosphere of Delhi and NCR is added to the burning of firecrackers on the festival of Diwali for a day or two. We do not know how true this excuse is according to scientific criteria, but we definitely see and feel that each bomb dropped by Israel in Gaza Strip released thousands of bombs that spread more smoke and poisonous gases than the firecrackers burnt in the whole of Delhi. The pollution level there did not reach dangerous levels even for a single day, while in terms of population and huge number of people, the Gaza Strip is not much less than Delhi.
There is no doubt that fireworks must have some impact on the environmental pollution in India, not only in Delhi, but the question also arises here whether the firecrackers burst only on Diwali cause pollution. Are the firecrackers burst on Christmas and Shabe-Barat (birthday of Prophet Muhammad) pollution free? Don’t the crores of ACs and other similar equipment running in Delhi increase the level of toxic gases in the air? Are mechanical vehicles, generators and other similar equipment not causes of pollution? If so then why are these also not closed? Why are the Environment Commission and the Supreme Court silent on this? Is it because he himself uses them?
The truth is that this is a disgusting attempt by some urban Naxalites and so-called secular mind bankrupt people to destroy Indian civilization by erasing Indian culture and traditional beliefs. They know how important these festivals and temples are in Sanatani civilization. That is why they want to eliminate them and make the Sanatani their mental slaves like the leftist people and atheists, but every Sanatani in India knows how big a contribution his culture, tradition and beliefs have in his economic, social and political life. This is what has kept it from being destroyed like other cultures and civilizations for millions of years.
According to the Confederation of All India Traders, during this Diwali, Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, Badi Diwali and the preceding week, business worth Rs 3.75 lakh crore (47 billion USD) has been done across the country. Similarly, around Rs 50,000 crore was spent during Durga Puja and Navratri also. During Durga Puja alone, more than three lakh artisans and laborers got work in the state of West Bengal alone. How much work is done on these festivals across the country can be estimated. Transactions worth Rs 20-25 thousand crores took place on Ganesh Chaturthi. These figures are for only three festivals. Similarly, on events like Holi, Janmashtami, Mahashivratri, Rakshabandhan etc. If many festivals are included, then a separate economy worth 150-200 billion dollars keeps running easily.
If pilgrimage sites, big temples, or other religious places are also added to this, then if the income from them and the expenses incurred due to the visit of devotees there, then this figure will easily reach 400 billion dollars. It can also be higher. This amount is equal to the GDP of Finland, the forty-eighth economy in the world. The meaning of comparison with this is that in our country due to religion, festivals, pilgrimage etc., so much money goes from one hand to another which is more than the GDP of more than 150 countries of the world and this is not a new system. Thousands This is a system that has been running traditionally for years.
Our temples, our festivals, our pilgrimages have been its center. It is worth remembering that this is not the case only in Hindu religion. Mecca-Medina, Vatican City etc. are also models of this system. The so-called scholars who make fun of religion forget that it is the biggest axis of the country’s economy.
It is noteworthy that like Kashi Vishwanath, Ujjain and Kedarnath, Ram temple is going to be inaugurated in Ayodhya on 22nd January next year which will give an incredible leap to the religious economy.
Now the time has come when the Sanatani Dharmacharyas should unite and collectively refute the opposition of these pseudo-urban Naxalites, so-called secularists and atheists to the Sanatani traditions based on small and impractical facts and move forward to protect the Indian culture, traditions and systems. Let it come. Only one initiative is needed in this regard. Public support will come automatically.
