Chennai Sandesh

Hindu Temple Agamas Flouted, Ancient Shiva Temple Hit
Those broken pieces of marble slabs dumped in the Tirunelveli Nellaiappar (Shiva) temple pond speak eloquently for the urgent need for Hindu temples to get rid of government hold on temple administration. Read on: The temple in question is managed by the Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments Board of the state government. The ancient temple had been renovated by Vijayanagar rulers. Tirugyana Sambandhar, one of the 63 Nayanmars (shaivite saints) sang ten Tamil poems on the spiritual significance of the temple, centuries back, in the seventh Century, to be precise. Those verses were engraved on marble slabs and fastened on the wall of the temple way back in the ‘50s. Last week, devotees were shocked to find the slabs broken and the debris dumped in the dry temple pond. Advocate and Hindu Munnani state committee member Kutralanathan, alleged that this was the fall out of the temple’s Executive Officer Roshni being a Christian.  Though the lady asserted she is a Hindu, and assured that new slabs with the verses would be installed soon,  there were more serious charges on the goings on in the temple: Prior to temple renovation the  temporary sanctum, Baalaalayam, was put up in a hush hush manner, whereas it should be done in the presence of seers and devotees. Adequate steps to collect the huge revenue dues to the temple from temple properties were not taken, etc.

भीमा कोरेगांव में क्या हुआ?

पुणे  (व्हिएसके)- महाराष्ट्र के भीमा-कोरेगांव में सन् 1818 में एक युद्ध हुआ था जो तत्कालीन ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनी और पेशवा के सैन्य के बीच हुआ था। इस युद्ध में कथित तौर पर अंग्रेजों की जीत हुई थी जिसकी स्मृति में इस गांव में एक विजयस्तंभ अंग्रेजों ने बनवाया। चूंकि अंग्रेजों की कथित जीत में महार बटालियन का बड़ा हाथ था इसलिए प्रति वर्ष 1 जनवरी को इस विजयस्तंभ को अभिवादन करने हेतु दलित समुदाय के लोग बड़ी संख्या में आते है। स्वयं डॉ. बाबासाहब आंबेडकर ने यहां एक बार अभिवादन किया था। चूंकि महार जाती संविधान के मुताबिक दलित श्रेणी में आती है इसलिए आंबेडकरवादी इस युद्ध को उच्च जाती पर दलितों की विजय के रूप में देखती है। उनके मुताबिक केवल 500 महार ने 28000 पेशवा सैनिकों को मार गिराया था, हालांकि इस कथन को लेकर में एकमत नहीं है।
