Then Modi, on the anti-graft and the national security planks, arrived to wrest the decade-long power from her by busting her anti-national political gang at the hustings. Backed by the public mandate, he set out to do what he could do in his first term to reverse the ant-Hindu gear in the hostile eco-system hitherto nursed by the Nehruvian cliché. So, the sight of him unfurling the Indian tricolor from the ramparts of the Mogul built Red Fort in Maharaja’s headgear was an eyesore to the Muslim Indians though they got their Pakistan all for Islam. Maybe no blaming them for the avowed goal of Islam is to make the whole world Muslim, and any way they make no secret of it though the others, more so the Hindus, pay no heed to it that is despite the unerring sound of the Ghazwa-e-Hind call in their ears. Be that as it may, at the next outing, the limited Hindu pride that his persona and policy ensued enabled him to trump the sham secularists despite their wont to foster the minority vote on religious grounds and their penchant to fester the majority franchise on the caste lines. Needles to say, to his credit, he has been trying to accelerate the vehicle of change on the Indian secular road that, however, is too bumpy for its facilitation.

Nothing exemplifies the Hindu plight in their ‘freed’ country in that they had to wage a long legal battle to rebuild the Mandir for Ram Lalla (infant Rama) on the very spot of his birth that was after clearing the Babri debris. That the Musalmans have been unwilling to part with the masjids in Kashi and Mathura, built over the temples of Lord Shiva and Lord Krishna respectively, by the Islamic rulers to humiliate the Hindus betrays their supremacist ethos and the uncompromising credo. Just the same, the pseudo-seculars and the Islamapologists advocate status quo ante on the ground that there’s no way of righting the historical wrongs, which naturally brings the morality of the Indian freedom struggle, not to speak of the annexation of Goa into question. But if ‘might is right’ then the forcibly built masjids in Kashi and Mathura, and others, must yield to the Hindu might of the day.

However, as time passed by in the ancient past, owing to the mundane distortions in the divine discourse that the Bhagavad-Gita is, the debilitating caste biases and the irrational ritual practices became the new norm of sanatana dharma to the immense hurt of the Hindu society as argued in the writer’s free ebook Inane Interpolations in Bhagvad-Gita (An Invocation for their Revocation). So, in time, it fell upon Siddhartha, as Gautam Buddha, to negate the twin evils that came to bedevil the polity, so to say, not as a reformer within but as a rebel without to espouse the breakaway Buddhism. Though in the end, Hinduism managed to eclipse the new religion from the land of its birth, yet it failed to fully drive away its pacifist shadows from its skies, and just the same it ridiculously absorbed its founder in its religious fold as the ninth avatar of Vishnu! So as Kalki, the tenth and the final avatar, hasn’t manifested to put an end to it all, in spite of the raging adharma, which the Hindu polity had to bear for over a millennium, the ninth slot seemed vacant yet.
