Indian Writers who were awarded with Sahitya Academy (साहित्य अकादमी) awards are returning their awards aligning with Nayantara Sehgal and going against Academy. Complete news can be read at:
Now, as usual, I need to dwell deeper in the way these writers who proclaim to be (Pseudo) Seculars with liberal thoughts. I would understand Nayantara Sehgal's case as she is related to the Nehru-Gandhi family and may have some vested Political interests to create a not so impactful stir in the circle. However, I fail to understand the other writers who seem to be doing it more on the "Me Too" philosophy rather than having their own views for returning the awards. I can understand that they want to protest on the murder of writers like Kalburgi, but I totally fail to understand their stance on returning the award for Dadri Lynching. That's the reason I called them "Pseudo Secular." They all acted in a very brainless manner to have linked the Dadri Lynching with Communal tension. Interesting, there is NO, absolutely NO communal tension witnessed in Bisahada village where the said lynching took place. These writers failed to make note of that and just are riding the wave to sensationalize the not so Communal case.
I really failed to understand the mindset of these Pseudo Secular writers who had made a statement to not mix politics and arts over certain incidents, but aren't they now mixing the same like good old retards? Yeah Derailed Liberals with one way traffic for Secularism can be called as retards/ Good Old adds some respect there I guess because what that section of people have displayed is utter non-sensical hypocrisy to have said one thing on one occasion and acting totally insane on the other occasion.
These so called Pseudo Seculars have been the reason for the decline of Sanaatan (सनातन) Dharma (धर्म). Before independence and after that such Pseudo Seculars on the name of being liberal paved way for the others to impact the Sanaatan Dhrama and play with its core. Today once again we see a negative impact of that on us when we look at the overall degradation of religious synergies in India. Why do these Insane people not understand that the Religion and Politics are two different things and why don't they drive that change through their pen? Aren't the same sort of writers to be blamed who wrote those DISTORTED History of India singing in praise of the Attackers and showing their glorious victory in looting India? Aren't these kind of writers responsible for the decline of Social strata in India when they praised Britishers and wrote songs on the glorious British Raj in India? Yes their liberalism is what has resulted in decline of Indian Culture and Indian Languages including Sanskrit and Hindi. Today if one writes something in Hindi, People have no clue of what is the meaning because they look for meaning in More of what I call as other languages like Urdu and English. Yes, the power of Hindi as a language has declined with words from other languages invading the space of Hindi Words. If you disagree, then please read the following statement and comment out if you understood the meaning
वर्तमान समयानुसार क्लिष्ट हिंदी में वार्तालाप करने की चेष्टा करना भी आपके विपरीत जा सकता है एवं आपके नाम के साथ धर्मान्धता को जोड़ आपकी राष्ट्रवादिता पर प्रश्न चिन्ह लगा सकता है। यदि आप स्वयं को राष्ट्रवादी कहलाने के इच्छुक हैं तो आपको क्लिष्ट हिंदी का उपयोग त्याग कर अन्य भाषाओं को अपनाना पड़ेगा। किन्तु क्या इसे सकारात्मक सत्य कहा जाएगा जहाँ आप अपनी मातृभाषा को त्याग पराई भाषा का उपयोग कर स्वयं को राष्ट्रवादी कहलाने का प्रयन्त करेंगे? क्या आपकी अंतरात्मा को यह स्वीकृत होगा? यदि हाँ, तो मुझे यह अत्यंत खेदजनक कथन कहना पड़ेगा कि आपकी अंतरात्मा या तो सुसुप्तावस्था में है अथवा आपके स्वयं उसका परित्याग कर दिया है।
For those writers who have returned their awards or who are returning their awards, I have one final question - "Are you returning the money that you got along with the award? If Yes, are you also returning it along with the interest accumulated for the years you had the award for?" Interest should in this case be calculated at 8.5% per annum. And if the answer to any of these questions is NO, then it is height of their Hypocrisy, for they are returning the award, but half of it, because they were benefitted monetarily when they were given the award!!
