Rajya Sabha functioning has been paralysed for the past many days with key reform legislations like the Insurance bill pending for approval The row reached Lok Sabha today PTI Dalits in India are merely seen as a political group; but when we use the word Dalit we get an image of a social warrior On a closer look we find that in addition to being a socio-political group Dalits are also quite cultural Yet a few western scholars are of the opinion that Dalits do not possess any culture of their own Two-three years back with the help of a research team from GB Pant Social Science Institute Allahabad I had conducted a study of popular Dalit religious and cultural sects of four states – Uttar Pradesh Bihar Madhya Pradesh and Orissa These sects included the Kabir panth Satnaami panth and the Mahima dharma It wasquite astonishing to see during the research that the daily lives of Dalits – their behaviour intelligence and folk knowledge – developed mostly under the influence of these sects Political parties who try and understand the Dalit consciousness only through the eyes of Ambedkar might be a drawback Reuters While interviewing Dalit groups residing in various villages across the four states it was observed quite surprisingly that Kabir Ravidas Guru Ghasidas and Mahima Swami featured prominently in many of their songs and stories The influence of Swami Achhutanand of the Aadi Hindu Panth is visible on the consciousness of these Dalits Their rituals from birth to death their spiritual thoughts are all inspired by the ideologies of these saints and traditional sects Though it is said that saints do not belong to any particular caste it is also seen that numerous saints of the Dalit and backward castes – like Ravidas Dhana and Peepa – were born during the Bhakti period The Bhakti saints spread feelings of self-respect and humanity which largely influenced the Dalit culture At the same time Dr BRAmbedkar played a great role in arousing a democratic culture among Dalits Ambedkar taught them lessons of democracy and encouraged them to become a democratic social group by adhering to constitutional norms He taught them how to become responsible citizens and how to develop amicable relations with the state This way it becomes clearthat the development of social and cultural consciousness among the Dalits was inspired by reformist sects and by Ambedkar We can say that they were the decisive elements of their consciousness and that the entire Dalit consciousness is made by the association of these two elements Thus political parties who try and understand the Dalit consciousness only through the eyes of Ambedkar might be a drawback In the absence of any of the two it is not possible to understand the Dalit consciousness and the structure of their inner self in a wholesome manner Many organisations like the Republican Party of India who wish to understand Dalits only through the Ambedkarvaadi lens or want to engage in polarisation around Ambedkar may show little signs of success Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) founder in Uttar Pradesh Shri Kanshi Ram understood this fact For this reason he attended and delivered his speech at the Ramnavmi fair in Chattisgarh where Dalits thronged in huge numbers He also worked with the Satnamis and developed the Bahujan leadership Simultaneously he also associated himself with Ambedkar’s symbol and actively visited Ambedkar fairs He gave importance to Ambedkar’s ideology albeit in a selective manner Though his opinions on various issues were in contrast to that of Ambedkar’s he still developed his own brand of pragmatic politics A point came in Kanshi Ram’s life when due to huge pressure of Ambedkarite intellectuals and groups he even thought of embracing Buddhism Though he was in favour of doing so he never managed to do this in his lifetime Kanshi Ram knew very well that in states like Uttar Pradesh and Punjab and also in other parts of India the maximum share of the Dalit population were Kabirpanthi or Ravidasi He understood that if he embraced Buddhism it might have a bad effect on the party’s politics as they would lose their symbolic power of getting associated with these sects Current BSP supremo Mayawati who politically grew under Kanshi Ram’s guidance has always revered the saints and gurus of Dalit society and this has been one of the biggest reasons behind the accomplishments of her party But of late there has been a decrease in the use of names of Dalit saints and gurus in the party’s discussions It needs to be understood why this has happened Not only do popular sects like Kabirpanth and Ravidas panth arouse cultural consciousness among the Dalits they also play a crucial role in the making of their political consciousness Today Dalits are rapidly being transformed into a democratic group and the ground for this has been prepared through the intervention of these popular reformist sects The seeds of democratic desire were sown by Ambedkar on this ground The Dalits’ democratic aspirations for self-respect humanity equality and freedom from the bondage of the caste shackles took birth under the influence of these very sects During the research in the aforementioned states it was seen that the Dalits always want to become democratic citizens by walking hand in hand with the state and constitution They do not want to get involved in any violence or conflict They want to become democratic citizens who have their own political voice Kanshi Ram was also aware of this fact On being asked about the expansion of his politics in Bihar he replied that their politics cannot survive in a place where there is an influence of arms and ammunition He somewhere knew that the Dalit mind is a democratic one and can be polarised only in a democratic manner It was observed many times during the research that the followers and devotees residing in the Kabir panth and Ravidas ashrams and those participating in the Ravidas fairs took part in political discussions after offering their evening prayers and after completing their religious rites and rituals In a Kabir panth ashram in Rewa one can see Ambedkar’s poster on the wall adjacent to a poster of Kabir These sects not only develop religious spiritual consciousness among the Dalits but also arouse positive social consciousness among them Hence it becomes clear that people who place Ambedkar against these sects or vice versa do not fully understand Dalit aspirations dreams and their consciousness Trump has vowed to take steps to exit the pact right after he takes office.s

NewsI think Ravindra Jadeja should be put through a psychological assessment What on earth was he thinking when he decided to pose in front of pride of Gir forest lions This in the week where there were two shark attacks an alligator killed a child in Disneyland and just a few weeks back a gorilla had to be shot dead because a two-year-old fell into the enclosure The boy was two years old he fell into the enclosure through the railings To the best of my knowledge Jadeja is older than two and he did not fall into the space between him and the lions He elected to walk there and the ignorance of the laws is not a sufficient defence What about plain common sense Did he not read the story of the young man who was reportedly mentally unstable who walked into the tiger’s den so to speak at the Delhi zoo He was not normal Ravinder Jadeja at the Gir National Park Image courtesy: Instagram So why is it okay to think that Jadeja did the smart thing and should not be assessed Imagine if something had happened to him The rangers would have been arrested the Forest officers suspended and a whole frenzied media would have gone berserk Indians would have howled in protest against the inept officials while ignoring this man’s utter stupidity I think it is absolutely spot on that the authorities are making an official report of this incident and once they do the man should be taken to task because he could have ruined their lives and careers with his indulgence When celebrities especially sports personalities send out the wrong message to their fans and the public at large they are twice as culpable There was nothing heroic about this Look at the photos He turns his back on the lions and makes funny faces It was so foolish Did he think they were tied up Did he think they would ask for his autograph because these lions in the wild get a cricket feed Maybe Ravindra Jadeja thought his fans would see him as a heck of a guy gutsy and ready to risk his life Now if he was doing that saving somebody from a burning building one could understand it But to try and fraternise with wild lions on their turf borders on madness It is said he loves animals Then he should have known better than to leap out of a jeep and put himself at risk You think those lions were sort of saying cool it dude it’s a cricketer let him be He is just lucky they were fed and full and not inclined to be curious Otherwise Mr Jadeja would not have made it back to his jeep I know a friend who lost his brother from an elephant who plucked him out of his jeep on the road and slammed the life out of him You want to be a tough guy go play your game and stop sending out wrong messages to impressionable youngsters Taking selfies with lions man you need to see a shrink By:
