“The Hindutva (Hindu-ness) is an antidote to the widespread corruption in India.” “Sanskrit is the most perfect language for computers.” “Hindus must get united and take all necessary action to safeguard their future.” “Hindus must become a formidable force on the global level for Vedic Dharma.” “India is a secular country because Hindus are in the majority in India.” “The DNA tests conducted in many universities in USA have conclusively established that all Indians from the North to the South have the same dominant DNA composition.” “Send one million retired soldiers to Kashmir, settle them there and solve the Kashmir problem for ever.”
The above assertive statements were made by Dr. Subramanian Swamy, a true personification of the leadership qualities like courage, fearlessness, dynamism and perseverance, who was the Keynote Speaker at the Eighteenth Annual Hindu Sangathan Divas (Hindu Unity Day) celebration in New York.
The high profile annual event organized jointly by the Hindu Temple Society of North America and Indian American Intellectuals Forum was enthusiastically supported by many rich Hindus, highly placed professionals, several Hindu associations and temple managements in the area.
The general mood of public and the atmosphere in auditorium was simply electrifying. The manner in which Hindus from India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Trinidad, Guyana and different states of India expressed their solidarity was highly stimulating. The energetic spirit of attendees who freely mingled with each other irrespective of the distinctions of jaati, color and social status shattered the myth and debunked the obnoxious theories propounded by the prophets of doom that Hindus cannot be united.
The Hindu Unity Day celebration by now has become a tradition for Hindus of the tri-state area who eagerly await its arrival each summer. This extremely successful and ever popular event has boosted the morale of Hindus in America and created a sense of confidence in them that they are second to none. That they are a power to reckon with.
Addressing the large congregation of Hindus, 1,000 plus, some of whom traveled by cars over 100 miles and flew from Chicago, Pittsburgh and Canada to listen to the great statesman, Dr. Swamy warned that Hindus should guard against the mischievous Aryan and Dravidian theory propagated by our enemies for the sole purpose of creating a rift within the Hindu society. “The DNA tests conducted in many universities in USA have conclusively established that all Indians from the North to the South have the same dominant DNA composition,” asserted Dr. Swamy.
Expressing pain and anguish at the plight of Hindu refugees from Kashmir, Dr. Swamy said that half a million Hindus driven by Kashmiri Muslims are still languishing in Indian refugee camps. This was very sad. The infuriating problems like these could actually be solved very quickly by sending one million retired Indian army-men in Kashmir and settling them in the state.
Dr. Swamy urged upon Hindu Americans to learn Sanskrit and Sanskritize the Hindi. NASA Journal on artificial intelligence says that Sanskrit happens to be perfectly suited language for computers. “If you cannot learn it, teach it to your children because in the next 50 years, Sanskrit is going to be the national language of India.”
We Hindus are secular by nature. India is secular because Hindus are in majority in it. History is testimony to the fact that in the past, Hindus allowed Jewish people to build synagogues in India and let Parsis settle in the country when they were driven out of their ancestral Iran upon the Muslim invasion.
In his powerful speech for full one hour, Dr. Swamy time and again so enthralled the audience with his brilliant narration and outstanding arguments in support of the Hindu unity, that he received a frequent ovation from the audience.
The speeches from the other distinguished speakers were thought provoking, the patriotic songs uplifting the spirit, and the traditional dances were scintillating.
Earlier Indira Narasimharajan welcomed the audience. Priya Sahani Sood emceed the program brilliantly, Arish Sahani talked about Essay Competition open to the students in the age group of 11-25 regarding Hindu Unity Day. Badri Hiriyur, an engineer by profession talked about Hindu Unity and Narain Kataria thanked the audience for their participation, enthusiasm, support, vitality and vigor.
