AT THIS PARTICULAR PERIOD, THE DHARM FOR HINDUS LIVING IN INDIA IS CONFRONTATION; to fight against evils destroying the society, and this holds good for every religious society existing in India, as the evils within the society spare none.
United we can get better results.WHY?
Because both the Secondary parameters and Primary parameters are extremely NEGATIVE.
Here are SOME of the SECONDARY parameters:
1) Corruption,
2) Ineffective governance,; eg: welfare funds do not reach at intended destination.
3) Hereditary Democracy,
4) Nexus between criminals and politicians.
5) Parallel economy generated by black money
98% people of India KNOW and believe that CORRUPTION is wrong and MUST GO; rest 2% corrupt also say corruption must go, but in spite of this excessive AWARENESS, corruption has increased during last 10 years. That means we are paying only lip services to such problems, and if the entire India is, with a functioning democracy could not sort out its problem, then there is serious problem with MY attitude as well as YOURS, which need to be corrected.
Now that also means we are not discussing the problem, that is OUR ATTITUDE, but we are discussing the RESULT of this ATTITUDE, and are not getting anywhere.
FUTURE RESULTS CANNOT be corrected without correcting the reasons for failure i.e. our ATTITUDE, and this can only be corrected by confrontation. One has to accept and understand that SELF correction is required without which nothing can be achieved.
Here are SOME of the PRIMARY parameters:
1. Female foeticide,
2. Lack of education for girls,
3. Dowry deaths,
4. Suicides among farmers,
5. Increase in court cases among relatives,
6. Corruption, mistrust and discontent.
I have given you an example about corruption, where entire India feels that corruption is spreading and must go, yet there seem to be no remedy. WHY?
Because we are NOT confronting the issue. We simply feel that making a statement, criticizing corruption is enough. No, that does NOT end our responsibility. That will not end corruption. Corruption will end when we accept that we are responsible for this, and the battle has to start from one’s vicinity where one lives. And for that one has to accept that every one of us is responsible for evils confronting our society.
Recently social activist, Mr. Anna Hazaare, through an Andolan spread awareness regarding evils of corruption , and succeeded in forcing the government to accept a definite time frame to draft, introduce and pass the Lok Pal bill. Whether it will succeed to end or reduce corruption at the top is another question. However, it is a good beginning of confrontation of civil society, to set things right. WE HAVE TO DO THE SAME IN THE VICINITY WHERE WE LIVE.
Remember there are problems in your vicinity too where you can help: Street lights are not working; approach roads are in bad shape though repaired recently; water logging; excessive mosquitoes although municipal person is spraying pesticide regularly; etc.etc.
IMPORTANT: None of these problems can be sorted out until and unless people of that area come together to confront this. But they will not come together; as such you have to take the lead. And that holds good everywhere.
To do this the first thing that we all have to do is to give importance to physically verifiable parameters. Various agencies including State and Central government are providing statistics. These statistics are also available through media and net.
The reason why we are PASSIVE and are facing this problem of attitude is because, though educated, and knowing very well that statistically verifiable parameters cannot deceive, we tend to rely more on emotional quotient rather than rely on modern reliable tools, and more often than not our Dharmic Gurus dissuade us from relying on modern tools.
Secondly people in your area will give all sorts of reason to dissuade you from fighting to end corruption. The reasons of course will vary. Some will tell you how much work for the society they are doing by performing SEVA at the Guru’s place; others will tell you how much religious he or she is; yet other will say that this is the job of the local government and the people representatives. But all this is simply to avoid doing what is to be done, because they are passive.
You have to persuade them and this will be your first battle in fight against CORRUPTION.

ABOUT MY BLOG: One has to accept that Hindus, though, highly religious, are not getting desired result as a society. Female feticide, lack of education for girls, dowry deaths, suicides among farmers, increase in court cases among relatives, corruption, mistrust and discontent, are all physical parameters to measure the effectiveness or success/failure of RELIGION, in a society. And all this, despite the fact, that spending on religion, by Hindus, has increased drastically after the advent of multiple TV channels. There is serious problem of attitude of every individual which need to be corrected. Revival of Hindu religion, perhaps, is the only way forward.

I am writing how problems, faced by Indian people can be sorted out by revival of Hindu Religion.
