How to over come Ego - Viswamithra [Coup On Indian Epics – 12]

In other trail of penance, Viswamitra was influenced by ego, in the episode of TriSanku. In that story, Trisanku was a king. He was rejected to enter in to heaven. He approached Viswamitra and said “Maha Muni. I was rejected from heaven. No saint helped me including Vasishta Maharishi. Please help me” “Viswamitra felt egoistic and took the challenge.

He wanted to prove himself greater than Vasishta Maharishi and others. By investing his strength of penance, he sent Trisanku to heaven. He was thrown from there. While falling down uprooted, Trisanku shouted “Viswamitra! I’m falling down, save me. You promised me to keep me in heaven.” By investing his total strength of penance, Viswamitra created another heaven and kept Trisanku there.

Later, deities solved it by accepting Trisanku in to heaven. Such that again Viswamitra got disturbed and deviated from his target of becoming Brahmashi. On this episodes, the coup makers and their supporters argue that Viswamitra had run parallel systems of this universe’s creating, continuation and destruction i.e. “సృష్టిస్థితిలయలు”. By the way, Viswamitra was rebel and enequivalent to the now-a-days terrorists who are trying to run the parallel governments.

In another trial, Viswamitra was influenced by the jealousy and ego and lost his entire energy of penance. He wanted to know Brahma Vidya i.e. Atma Gnanam and to become Brahmarshi. He consulted great and fame persons and deities like Surya Deva etc to teach him Atma Vidya. According to their guidance, finally he approached Adi Seshu, the great Snake on which God Vishnu used to lay.

He prayed Adi Seshu to teach him Atma Gnana. There was earth on Adi Seshu’s hoofs. He said, “You are looking my stage. How can I teach you by carring this heavy earth on head? If I loss balance, it may fall down.”

Viswamitra said, “Keep it aside for a while and teach me.” Adi seshu said, “Can you keep it in balance and prevent it from falling off its orbit?”

Viswamitra said “Yes”. Adi Seshu lifted the earth from his head and kept it a side. It started to fall with high velocity. With superiority complex, Viswamitra said, “I’m investing my penance energy of a moment to control the earth.” But the earth didn’t stop from falling. He said, “I’m investing my energy of one day.” No use.

He said, “I’m investing half of my penance power.” No use, He said, “I’m investing my total energy of penance to stop”. The earth had stopped for a moment i.e. second and again moving with high velocity. Viswamitra felt shy and realized how less his energy, how egoist he was and his position with respective arishadwargas.

He said, “Please forgive me. I realized my ego.” Adi Seshu smiled with generosity, stopped the earth, and kept it again on his head. On this episode, the coup makers and their supporters argue “By standing where, Viswamitra conversed like that with Adi Seshu”.

Now we know that our scientists, astronauts like Kalpana Chavla, Suneetha Williams etc converse with NASA centre, by standing in the space. This is possible with science and technology. Then, in those days, might not it possible with some other technology or technology of Atma Gnana or Brahma Gnana? Is our knowledge is full pledged to say that there won’t be knowledge other than what we know now?

In fact, these types of stories are there, all over the world, in all languages, in all countries, in all religions and in all folk stories. Can the coup makers comment on them like the comments, satires they passed on Hindu, Indian epics?

After, all these mistakes, Viswamitra concentrated on penance with balance of mind by leaving all ego & arishadwargas and achieved the darshanam i.e. appearance of Brahma Deva. When Brahma Deva gave boon to Viswamitra by calling him as Brahmarshi, he didn’t satisfy. When Vashista Brahmarshi called him as ‘Brahmarshi’, he could satisfy and then he became as the friend of the universe.

Such Vasishta and Viswamitra, when they meet each other, they respect each other. It was not a Hippocratic act like our politicians meeting.

Gadheya Vs Viswamithra [Coup On Indian Epics – 11]

Let us return to Ramayanam again. The saint Viswamithra went to King Dasaratha to request him to send Sri Rama along with him to the forest to protect his Yagnam. In fact, he was king Gadheya before he took ‘Sanyasam’. He had known the operation of many weapons and he gave his powers of weapons which he acquired with his own effort such as ‘Thapasu’ to Sri Rama for the sake of world peace and prosperous.

Such capacitive ViswaMitra requested King Dasaratha to sent, Sri Rama with him. Vasishta Maharishi remarked this, when King Dasaradha feared to send Sri Rama to kill the demons and to protect the Yagna.

When Dasaratha was ready to accompany Viswamithra, instead of Rama, Maharishi Vasishta said “Oh! King! Don’t doubt the capacity of Viswamitra and Sri Rama. Viswamitra could kill the demons with a single curse. In spite of this, he is requesting you to send Sri Rama with him. His wish might be other. He wants to coach and train up Sri Rama. Send your son, along with him as if you are sending him to marriage instead of to forest. Being your family and race teacher, I’m advising you.”

Because of this Vasishta Maharishi, Viswamitra had given up his Kingdom of Gadheya and he went to forest to do penance. Once, being king, Gadheya had gone to forest for hunting the animals. In those days, hunting the animals was the part of king’s duty, because the number of wild animals and wideness of the forest was much than the population of people and their residential areas.

So that the wild animals used to damage the public life by attacking on lives and crops in fields. That’s why kings should go to forests along with their army to hunt the animals. But now hunting of the animals is crime because now increased popularity of people is attacking on the lives of wild animals and on the forests.

While returning from hunting, the king Gadheya had visited Vasishta Maharishi’s Ashram. With the help of the cow Kapila, the daughter of Kamadhenu, Vasishta Maharishi had given a big feast to the King and his army. Gadheya felt wonder about it. He wanted to have the cow, but Vasishta rejected his desire.

He forced to take the cow but failed. By the way, he could understand that the strength of king was less than that of a saint or Maharishi. He left his kingdom and started penance. In spite of this incident, Vasishta Maharishi didn’t have any agony on Gadheya i.e. Viswamitra. And more over both Vasistha and Viswamitra respect each other. That was their achievement over the emotions, and arishadwargas. All the famed people and characters in our epics stood for such balance of mind and led people to be in such path.

Leaving all this good of Viswamitra, these coup makers and their supporters used to refer Menaka’s relation with Viswamitra in movies like Yama Gola, Yama Donga etc. in jokes in cartoons. The background story is as follows. Being Gadheya, when he started penance to acquire the strength of a saint like Visishta Maharishi, he failed minimum thrice in that trail.

Depends upon their concentration in penance, they will get powers and strength and such saints were used to call as Muni, Rushi, Maharishi, Mahamuni,Rajarshi and Brahmarshi etc names. Vasishta Maharishi was famous as Brahmarshi. Gadheya wanted to become equivalent to him.

In that process, he became friend to this universe, so that he was called by name Vaswa Mitra. He was the man who behind the story of Satya HarithsChandra, one of the fore fathers of Sri Rama in Ramayanam. Viswamitra’s role is valuable in Sri Rama’s life. His grandson Bharatha was the one of the fore fathers of Pandavas in Mahabharatam such that he was long living man as per Hindu epics.

As I above said, during the time of penance, he failed to keep up his concentration without disturbance, minimum thrice.

In one trail, the beauty of Menaka, the divine woman sent by Devendra, the king of heaven to disturb his penance, influenced him. He loved her, spent with her. After she became pregnant, he could realize his deviation from his target and left her, gone to Himalayas. Menaka had given birth to Sakunthalaand she brought up by Kanva Maharishi.

Sri Kali Dasu in Sanskrit fabricated the basic story of Sakunthala in most poetic and dramatic way in Abhignana Sakunthalam. On this episode, the cine people, the coup makers, made ‘Masala’ i.e. purposeful mixture, by leaving the greatness of ViswaMitra and by leaving his well wishing towards the peace and prosperity of this universe.

The Positive Image to Aurangzeb [Coup On Indian Epics – 10]

In this context, I want to explain you another point, which can demo you regarding the implementation of the coup on Indian culture. By spreading critics, satires and jokes including the writings like Ramayana Visha Vrukshams, the coup makers degraded the epics and driving them from public life.

More over there was a spread or propaganda, regarding Aurangzeb, the last fame Emperor of Mughal. His hairs were unpopular and weakened. After Aurangzeb, as per the history, the Mughal Kingdom got stage of falling down. Regarding such Aurangzeb, the oral propaganda was that, Aurangzeb did not enjoy the people money as Emperor, he used to copy the Koran by manual script, by selling them, and he earned money for his food.

He spent such loyal or Saint life. Because Shah Jahan had spent public money to construct Taj Mahal, Aurangzeb did not like this, hence he kept his father in the royal prison i.e. prison in the palace!

This was the oral palm plate in spread in public. In fact, Shah Jahan constructed Taj Mahal as the symbol of his love to his wife Muntaj Begum. However, both Muntaj and Shah Jahan had failed to construct the character of their son Aurangzeb. That’s why only Aurangzeb did not respect the bondage of his father. Might Aurangzeb not believe the bondages?

With such character, could Aurangzeb led his life like a saint, without royal luxuries, with his own and poor earnings on copy writing the Koran with his own hands? As per history, Aurangzeb had restarted the tax on beard & hair on Hindus, which his great grandfather Akbar had demolished. He was that much greedy and impatient to other religions. He didn’t have affection on his own blood relatives.

Giving positive image to much Mughal i.e. Muslim Emperor, Aurangzeb and giving negative image of king Dasaratha and Kausalya who were successful parents in carving the morality in the characters of their sons, Sri Rama and his brothers, is it not a coup on Indian culture?

In practice, the definition of secularism became as the praising of others religions, protecting of other religions especially Islam and criticizing Hinduism, damaging Hinduism. By keeping this point on the shoulders, B.J.P., R.S.S. etc. entered in to the field with roarings and shoutings, raised Hindu terrorism.

This is another angle of coup. I will explain it in detail and under the caption of COUP ON HINDUISM AND OTHER RELIGIONS and under the caption of COUP ON INDIAN POLITICAL FIELD.

Coup On Indian Epics – 09 [Family in Ramayana]

40 to 50 years back, parents and elders in the family used to refer Ramayanam follow Ramayanam and used to tell the stories to the children in the family. They used to get motivation to follow the morals of epics. That’s why only such generation people used to respect their elders.

Now, if you watch the present young generation and children in our society, no child is calling his/her elder child as brother or sister. They are calling them by name. When the elders and parents of the family, call their children by name or pet name, the younger children also imitate it.

By that time parents should correct them and should make them to respect, elder children as well as they should make the elder children to be responsible and affectionate towards the young children. Because of delete of epics such as Ramayanam and Maha Bharatham, people had forgotten that discipline.

The parents are laughing when the young children call their elder children by name as imitating the parents. The parents are thinking that such imitating is naughtiness of children and enjoying it. They are not noticing that such acts are the beginning steps of indiscipline and decreasing of bondages and values in the society.

Hence, result is in front of our eyes. Now brothers & sisters born to one mother are killing other own brothers, sisters and their family members. Where is the address of love and bondage? Maximum people became as Aurangzeb’s.

In Ramayanam, Lakshmana scarified his comfortable life, company of his young wife for 14years to accompany and to serve his elder brother Sri Rama in forest. Bharatha scarified his thrown, which his mother Kaika Devi achieved with her boons.

He said that he was not capable and eligible for it and given the thrown to Sri Rama, his elder brother with respects. Being kings, having busy schedule of life, king Dasaratha and his wives had brought up their children with such moral values.

Now, are the modern mothers and fathers busy than the king Dasaratha and his wives who spent enough time to perform all of their duties and works being King and Queens? Are the modern parents having much busy schedule than them? Or, are the modern parents have to perform much politics than them?

More over the modern parents are very much advanced. Among them, I had seen some of the fathers who are enjoying the naughtiness of their sons by making the sons to call the fathers as “Orai Daddy.” When the son is at the age of below ten years, it may be okay for them, but if the sons call them at the age of 25, is it okay for them? If the son disobeys, does not show respects and send them to old age homes, is it okay for them?

Indian Epics, Vedic culture leads the people to follows,
Mathru Devo Bhava that means Mother is God.
Pithru Devo Bhava that means Father is God.
Acharya Devo Bhava that means Teacher is God.

By saying God bye to epics and culture from life, from society and by welcoming the T.V. serials, ‘mass’ i.e. vulgar movies in to life and society, the children will follow.
Mother is a servant to us.
Father is a cashier to us.
And teacher is a useless fellow to us.

In most of the families, among most of the children, this type of indiscipline and disobedience is there. By stopping our running or busy schedule and if we observe the facts with consciousness, this appears around us in the society and families.

Coup On Indian Epics – 08 [Jokes On Hindu Believes]

Mr. Karuna nidhi, the present Chief Minister of Tamilnadu is saying with critic regarding Rama Sethu as “Rama sethu is the Natural formed one, but not constructed by Rama as a bridge to Lanka. In fact, no person by name Rama was born. The story of Ramayana is only imagination of poet. Where he born? When he born? Where he studied? When he studied? Did he study Engineering? He did Engineering to construct a bridge from India to Lanka in which University?”

In India, now, it is possible to get fake passports to ordinary woman by name of wife of respected M.P. or M.L.A. In India, now, it is possible to get fake driving license, passports to terrorist and to one person by name of different persons, not only one passport, it is possible to get multiple passports to one person.

In India, now, it is possible to get state first ranks, distinctions to students who do not know the definitions in basic subjects. Just we need money to give as corruption to concern authorities. Then is it impossible to get Engineering certificates for Sri Rama, Lakshmana, Sugreeva, Hanuman, Nal and Neel from any university in Tamil Nadu or in Andhra Pradesh or in India?

Keep this point beside. Whether Sri Rama was alive at once upon a time or not, whether Sri Rama was imaginary character of poet or not, whether he constructed a bridge really or not, whether the present Rama sethu [on which B.J.P. is planning to play a drama as in the case of Rama Janma Bhoomi of Ayodhya, U.P.] is the natural formation or not, but the belief of crores of Hindus or Indians is true.

Won’t Mr. Karuna nidhi, or Union India Government show respect and consideration on the feeling i.e. Manobhavas of Indians? Won’t Indians or Hindus have feelings? Won’t they get hurt of the feelings like Sikhs in the events of 1984, after the assassination of Smt. Indira Gandhi at New Delhi or like other religious people in India?

Mr. Kula Deep Nayyar, who is showing the great concern regarding the hurting of feelings of Sikhs since 23 years, can’t show a little bit of same concern towards the hurting of the feelings of the Hindus in the case of Rama Sethu? Won’t Hindus have feelings? Or won’t Hindus have hurt of the feelings? Is it not showing a systematic implementation of a coup on Hindus?

Otherwise, can Mr. Karuna nidhi or others make such type of comments on any other religious aspects, on any other religion prophets or on any other religious believes? Why Hindus are that much easy approach to them? Who is giving such support to them to criticize Hinduism, to make satires on Hindu believes and to make jokes on Hindus? Without doubt, it is the support from Mr. Ramoji Rao, and his agencies C.I.A. and I.S.I.

Let us return to Sri Ramayanam and to king Dasaratha. Being king, he was successful and made his sons with full pledged personality and characters. He was a successful father in bringing up his children in perfect way. He made them as responsible citizens.

That’s why the younger brothers obeyed and respected their elder, Sri Rama. All of the obeyed and respected their father and mother. They didn’t played coup to snatch the thrown from their father or among the brothers like Aurangzeb in the case of Shah Jahan and his sons.

Coup On Indian Epics – 07 [Valmiki Maharshi Vs Publicity]

There is same case with other epic stories. In case of Sri Ramayanam ….. Regarding King Dasaratha, he ruled his country in righteous way and brought up his four children Sri Rama, Lakshmana, Bharatha and Satrughna in righteous way. He made them to learn how to respect parents and elders, how to practice morals, how to face the difficulties, and to obedience towards teachers. Since childhood, Rama, Lakshmana, Bharatha and Satrugna had shown nice behavior.

Among them Sri Rama was more attractive, obedient, knowledgeous and with sweet talkative. Naturally, people, other characters in the story had praised him. Poet Valmiki Maharishi described this in a poetic way.

By referring this, the authoress of Ramayana Visha Vruksham, Ranga Nayakamma and other persons like her put several critics. She said that with such praising of Sri Rama by other characters, Valmiki Maharishi had done mass hypnotism or brainwash to give hero image or great image to Sri Rama, and in fact Sri Rama was not that much good.

Actually, Valmiki Maharishi didn’t give publicity, advertisements to make hit his writing. He didn’t make marketing campaigns to popular his Ramayanam. More over Sri Rama also didn’t effort such. He didn’t praise himself. He didn’t purchased awards, rewards such as Padma Sri or lifetime achievement or legend etc.

He didn’t paid money to perform honor in Ravindra Bharathi or in Lalita Kala Thoranam in public Gardens. Both Valmiki Maharishi and Sri Rama didn’t follow strategy, which the God fathers in cinema field i.e. coup makers are following to popular Amita Batchan as big B and to popular Rajani Kanth as Tamil super star and Chiranjeevi as Telugu Mega Star.

Both Valmiki Maharishi and Sri Rama didn’t follow the policy of ‘you scratch my back and I scratch your back’ as the cinema people. I refer Satyajit Ray’s compliment towards the heroine Jaya Prada as the beautiful heroine of the then days and Asia Journal’s ranking of Bipasa basu as the sexiest woman of Asia. Why I refer these incidents is this type of publicity is with match fixing arrangements.

Both Valmiki Maharishi and Sri Rama didn’t use the media to declare that they had a light with them. Without the media approach, people could observe the light, so that people had accepted the good qualities of them. Actually present days are not comparable with the days of Ramayanam and the Ramayanam time is not comparable with present time. In spite of this, why I put such satire is as follows.

Coup On Indian Epics – 06 [To Degrade Harischandra]

That’s why only, the coup makers had concentrated on the epics at their maximum level. I start my discussion on this coup with Sri Ramayanam.

As per Sri Ramayanam, Sri Rama belonged to Surya Vamsam i.e. race. His fore fathers were Ikswaku, Manuvu and Satya HarithsChandra etc great kings. They were the followers of Dharma, truth and sincerity. Regarding Satya HarithsChandra, as I discussed in the beginning of this topic, some jokes were made and popularized until the anti spirit or until the idea of ‘if we tell truth, we have to suffer like anything’ up to the roots of all sections of the public.

Hence, a great story, a great fact, a great episode that was able to motive people to tell truth, which was able to inspirit people to practice the morals, was deleted from society. This is because; the story of Satya Harithschandra had motivated Bapu to tell truth. It made a normal man in to strong soul i.e. Mahatma.

That is the main reason to demolish that story from the public life. The ‘Surabhi’ poetic Drama Company and other art societies, which were exhibiting the real story of Satya HarithsChandra and other epic stories as dramas with Telugu poems and dialogues, had strategically made to collapse by the coup makers.

In fact, in the story of Satya HarithsChandra, his wife Chandra Mati Devi, being queen, she left all the wealth, kingdom and followed her husband to forest, to Kasi city in the part of following the truth and Dharma. Whenever HarithsChandra lost courage and fell in depression, she motivated him to follow the righteous way.

His son Lohithasya also, being child, he followed his parents. The poems of such characters, though the lyric is classical with Grammatik values, villagers could understand the high level of language. Now such capacity is lapsed in city people and in villagers.

Thus, total family was stubborn to follow moral values and truth. It leads people to support their family members with unity whenever they fell in troubles. With the memories of such stories, wives could remember their responsibility to support their husbands in difficulties.

On such story, satires, jokes, critics had made. Wantedly media didn’t give space to the voice of scholars, righteous people, and intellectuals like Usha Sri, Viswanadha Satya Narayana and others, the then responsible people who tried to support the story.

Strategically the media including News paper, weeklies, periodicals, movies, conferences, discussions and with government officials indirect support [this they managed with corruption] had given full space to the voice of people like Ranganayakamma who criticized the story.

Coup On Indian Epics – 05 [What Happens If History Deletes]

The same type of coup may be implementing on several parts of the world by some other persons and same spying agencies. Whatever may be the coup makers and whatever may be the mode of coup, but the purpose of coup is only driving the people out of feelings and making them as commercial minded robots. Then it will be easy for these coup makers to convert the skills in to wealth, without investing much.

The decades of coup, history is this much simple. That’s why only, some of our politicians like Chandra Babu Naidu will say to eliminate history subject from the educational syllabi of our children. If we study history, we may alert to identify the coup on us, or we may remind our heritage or we may realize our position.

If history is deleted from, society, then we can’t learn lessons from our history, we can’t refer solutions for our present problems in the history and we can’t use our elder’s experiences. Then how much easy it will become to implement and to continue the implementation of the coup? Otherwise, why should the history get delete from the syllabi?

In the part of the coup on our Nation, if this much of effort had taken to delete history from society, then imagine how much effort could taken by them to demolish or to degrade our epics?

Once again, I refer the story of Satya HarithsChandra. Suppose there is a society with 100 members. If 100 members of it are telling always truth, there will be peace in the society. Everybody will enjoy the advantages. If 90 members of it are telling always truth and 10 members are telling lies, then 10 members will have advantages, because 90% of people will believe that these 10% also telling truth like themselves.

If 10 members of it are telling always truth and 90 members are telling lies, then 10 members will have disadvantages, because 90% of people won’t believe these 10%, by thinking that these 10% also telling lies like themselves. If 100 members of the society are telling always lies, there will be horrified situation in the society. There won’t be peace and happiness in the society.

It resembles just like the following example…..Imagine a group of people standing in a circle. If everybody beats on cheek of his/her neighbors, everybody will suffer. The lie, the cheat, the deceive; the bad act is like the beat on cheek. Thus, everybody should suffer. Now we are living in such society. Who made us like this? Who drove us in to this situation? No doubt, there is a coup; however, we ourselves have driven us into this hell.

If a cheat happens, if a deceive happens, if a coup happens, it involves the cleverness or crookedness of the person who cheated or deceived the other as well as the foolishness of the person who was cheated or deceived by the other.

That’s why I’m saying that, we, being Indians, we helped and co-operated to the coup makers to spoil our lives, to spoil our society, to spoil our children and to destroy our future.

Now I will explain the coup implemented to degrade our epics to inpatronise our epics in detail.

In fact, Hindu religion, Hindu epics are idealistic. All other religions in this world may be idealistic. Actually Hindu religion is not a religion. It is a life style. It is an idealistic attitude. It is a moral thinking. It is a systematic working nature.

To break such systematism, to change such moral thinking into immoral, to pollute such idealistic attitude, to destroy such life style, a long and full pledged coup is under implementation since decades by Mr. Ramoji Rao and his spying agencies i.e. C.I.A. of America and I.S.I. of Pakistan.

Actually Sri Ramayanam, Sri Maha Bharatam are not only two epics of Indian culture, they are like two eyes of Indians. Here I use Indian culture instead of Hindu culture because it is the attitude of people in India irrespective of religion. Irrespective of religion, here in India, people believe in the concept of ‘fate’. That’s why I used Indian instead of Hindu.

The theory of fate is in Indian blood, in Indian geans. Thousands of years back, here in India, there was no other religion such as Christianity or Islam etc. the fore fore fore…. Fathers of all people have same geans i.e. Indian geans. Such that their attitude, as in heritage have such believes on faith and truth.

Because of such in heritage, all Indians have the characteristic of peace and patience. Among Muslims, Indian Muslims are different. Indian Muslims are with more human and moral values while compare with other country Muslims. That’s why only Arab Muslims exploited Indian Muslims i.e. shakes but Indian Muslims didn’t exploit any other country Muslim.

Here, I’m refereeing the word ‘Indian Muslim’ for an ordinary Muslim citizen of India. But not a M.I.M. Party politician, but not a Mullah who could issue fatwa to kill people, but not an Imam Bukari who could raise communal rivals, but not a terrorist of old city of Hyderabad who could give shelter and co-operation to Pak., Bangladesh or Afghan terrorist to blast bombs.

All these are supporters of coup makers i.e. Ramoji Rao, C.I.A. and I.S.I. Under the caption of COUP OF HINDU RELIGION AND OTHER RELIGIONS IN INDIA; I can discuss in detail regarding this angle of the coup including Hindu terrorists i.e. B.J.P., Sangh Pariwar, and R.S.S. etc.

Now I return to the point of India epics. In comparison, or in symbolic explanation, the two great Indian epics i.e. Sri Ramayanam, Sri Maha Bharatam are like the two eyes of human being in India. People could see in to the world, and in to their life through the vision of these two epics.

Sri Bhagawatham is like their heart. They could feel everything through the emotional touch of ‘Krishna Leela’ i.e. Miracle of God. Vedic Literature is like the brain of the Indian. They could think and recognize the world and the life through the vision of that knowledge only. And totally, Sri Bhagavad Geetha is like the soul of the Indian. It is permanent ant it is the base of their life. Knowingly or unknowingly, it is the entire structure of their life. Awaritively or un-awaritively it is the style of their life and it is the philosophy of their life.

Coup On Indian Epics – 04 [The Strategic Brain Wash]

The argument of coup supporters on this is - “Hindus are not ferocious, they didn’t mind their religion. They didn’t respect their religion. So they are not making protest to protect their religion and epics. Look. All the critic makers or satires makers are Hindus only. Not any other religion people or Ramoji Rao or C.I.A. or I.S.I.”

In reply, I give you an example. Suppose a family consists of 10 members including two grandparents, two parents and six children. Suppose the elders were leading life with moral values, human values, and professional ethics and idealistic views. Suppose a coup had planned and implemented to break them and to turn them into materialistic or commercial attitude. In the part of that coup, imagine that the family had driven into such a situation of decreasing of the income and increasing of expenditure.

After some time, the children in that family would feel in-satisfaction on their parents, because their character did not completely form, because they were immature children, because their attitude did not completely form. Basically, human desires are unlimited. But resources to fulfill the desires are limited. This is the first word of economics. In such case, it was not in-natural that the children and youth to feel in-satisfaction on their elders of the family. If such deficiency of wealth drives them up to poverty and fasting, definitely hunger could drive them to oppose the elder’s idealism.

As a catalyst to this, if all the neighbors of that family, brain wash the children and youth of that family as in the story of Nalla Meka and Naluguru Dongalu i.e. BLACK GOAT AND FOUR THIEVES [Hand mark-17], in such a way “Look all others are in progress. They are happy. They are rich. Only your family is poor. Your parents and grandparents are idealistic and idiotic. The days are changed. Idealism is not suitable to these days.

To talk about morals is good to hear, but not good to practice. Poverty is the only result of that attitude. Morals, Epics, history, fear to sin etc all are trash. Disobey your parents. They are particular about their own fame as moral people or truth saying people etc etc but not considering your happiness and comfortableity in life and your career.

Like that, they are selfish. Selfishness means not only in terms of money and material, it may be in terms of feelings also. And more over your parents and elders are egoistic. That’s why they are not hearing your version. This is the generation gap, their lack of communication skills. Your elders are not capacitive to understand this development. Hence, you neglect them. Don’t respect them.”

Then what will happen? Then some of the family members will become as the supporters to the neighbors. They support the coup. They participate in the coup and they effort to implement it. Ultimately, the family will collapse.

More over, if all the neighbors earning money and leading rich life, definitely the children and youth of the family get attract towards the neighbors only. In the part of the coup, if the neighbors introduce deviations among the family members as quarrels among men and women, old generation and young generation, among earners and non earners, among employees and non employees etc. all sections, then what will happen?

Definitely all the family members will pierce their own eyes with their own fingers. When all the family members became blind, then it will be easy to exploit them. Then it will become easy to utilize their manpower, with nominal payment. Then it will become easy to encroach their assets, to snatch their worthy things. By that time, though the family became poor, but if their thinking ability, their working ability and their capacities are high, then it will be easy to create wealth by exploiting them.

This is the example.

Actually, family is the basic unit of the society. Certain families form colony. Certain colonies form villages, towns and cities. Certain villages, towns, and cities form states and states form country.

In the above example, family stands for country India and Hindus. The members of family stand for different sections of people. The neighbors stand for coup makers i.e. Ramoji Rao, media, C.I.A. and I.S.I. Media, literature, arts and movies of modern age did the brainwash.

Coup On Indian Epics – 03 [Afforts to Unpopular Human Values]

Not a single Newspaper, not a single weakly had reminded the people, that the story of Satya HarithsChandra made an ordinary boy as our father of Nation. Moreover, so many satires were there in movies. For example, I quote a film song, I don’t know the name of the Telugu movie in which this song was inserted, but Smt. P. Suseela sung it. It was

పల్లవి: అదేమిటో! ఆడదంటే మగవాడికి అలుసులే
అనాదిగా జరుగుతున్నా అన్యాయం ఇదిలే

చరణం: ఆలిని అమ్మాడొకడు
అడవికి పంపాడొకడు
ఒకడేమో జూదంలో పందెం ఓడ్డాడు ..... అదేమిటో"

That means:
What a strange! Men are careless to women.
Since ancient times, this is the in-justice happening.
One man had sold his wife.
One man had sent his wife to forest
And one man had gambled his wife.

In the first line of the stanza, the writer referred that Satya HarithsChandra sold his wife Chandra Mati Devi. He put such satire by equalizing Satya HarithsChandra to the liquor addicts who are ill-treating their wives by selling them, and to the worst, immoral men who are selling the women to prostitute houses. He didn’t remind that Chandra Mati Devi, willing fully, accompanied her husband HarithsChandra, supported him, motivated him to stand for truth and she, her self-stood to speak truth.

In the second line of the stanza, in this song, the writer referred that Sri Rama sent his wife Sita to forest. He put such satire as if Sri Rama sent Sita to forest for himself. Did Sri Rama enjoy life with another woman or with another marriage after sending Sita to forest? To keep the moral values, both Sri Rama and Sita had sacrificed their lives. To use tongue without limits, without knowing a things is a big mistake and a washer man in Uttara Ramayanam did such mistake. But for the sake of a moral, poor washer man’s blame, both Sri Rama and Sita felt
Responsible and afforded to maintain moral values in the society, By the way they sent righteous signals into the society. The writer of the above song didn’t consider it. Similar reference is there in the case of Dharma Raja in the third line of the stanza of the song.

I don’t know who had written this lyric, who had acted for this, who had directed this film, but it is clear that the motive force or Godfathers are Mr. Ramoji Rao and his agencies only. In the beginning, his activities were far behind the screen, very indirectly. Gradually his Godfather ship is established. This had taken decades of long time. It is quite natural in spying history to plan, to implement, and to wait, for result for such long time as decades and sometimes as centuries.

Not only this type of songs, such screens, such stories, such arguments, such jokes in movies, in News items, in literature and where ever it is possible had propagated until they change the attitude of public from positive thinking to negative thinking, from good to bad, from patience to revenge, from love, co-operation, and co-ordination to hatred. This is the slow poison of spying.

Otherwise, vigorous protest will happen if one Salmon Rashdi or one Thaslima Nasrin writes against Islam. Fatwa’s will release to kill such critic making writers. Nobody will critic on any concept of Christianity and on any other religion. Then why Hinduism became such a cheap or easy approach to make jokes, critics and satires?

Coup On Indian Epics – 02 [What Tells Harischandra to Us]

I’ll narrate another story told by Sri Rama Krishna Param Hamsa in the same context of belief. I read this in Sri Rama Krishna Bodhamrutham.

అనగా అనగా..........

Once there was an innocent man in a village. One day on some work, he was going to the nearby village. On the way, he had to cross a small river. He feared to cross the river. There came a Saint. This innocent man prayed the Saint to help him to cross the river. The Saint had given a ‘Thaveedu’ i.e. a copper thin sheet on which a magic word would be written and folded in to small size and said “My dear boy, Hold this Thaveedu in your hand and chant, ‘Sri Rama….Sri Rama…’ and cross the river. You can swim in the water”.

The innocent man thanked the Saint and the Saint went on his way. The innocent man started to chant, ‘Sri Rama….Sri Rama’, wonder! He was able to swim in water. He was so happy. When he crossed half of the width of the river, he got curiosity to see what was the magic word, written on the ‘Thaveedu! Then he opened the copper sheet. There was written Sri Rama. When he read it, he thought “Only Sri Rama! Not any magic word.”

By the moment itself, he sank in the water.

That’s the entire story.

In this story, the innocent man didn’t sink in the water until he had belief on ‘Thaveedu’ and chanting of Sri Rama’s name. Whenever he got doubt on it, he sank in the water. We used to have similar experiences in our life. Whenever we loss trust on God or whenever we loss self-confidence we used to fail in our effort.

Being Hindus, we believe that self-confidence is confidence on God. అహంబ్రహ్మస్మిః As living beings, we are Atma and the God is Paramatma. God is in us and we are in God. Sri Bhagavad Geetha clearly tells us this.

I want to narrate another reference of Sri Rama Krishna Param hamsa. This also, I read in Sri Rama Krishna Bhodhamrutham. As per that,

In Sri Ramayana, Sri Anjeneya had jumped over the 100 Yojanas distance ocean to reach Sri Lanka, by trusting on the Name of Sri Rama. But Sri Rama himself needed the bridge to cross the ocean. That is the power of belief. The devotee can do miracles by trusting in God, where as God, he needs devotees to establish this.

Indian culture, Indian life style, Indian epics make the people to trust in righteous and to believe in morality. By demolishing this Indian culture, Indian life style, and Indian epics, the coup makers made the people and still making the people to trust in bad, to believe in immorality. All our epics motivate the people to be with positive thinking. By destroying the epics, by criticizing the epics, by making jokes on the epics, the coup makers, i.e. C.I.A., I.S.I. and Mr. Ramoji Rao successfully motivated the Indian to be with negative thinking.

I’ll explain it in detail.

There is a famous story of the king Harithschandra in Sri Ramayana. He was famous as Satya Harithschandra. To avoid saying lie, he sacrificed his kingdom, his wealth, wife, his son, his life and himself. He didn’t melobon to say lie, even, when he received the dead body of his own son. He got ready to cut his wife’s head to perform his duty. In any difficulties, at any time he didn’t give up the nature of telling truth. This story motivated Mohan Gandhi to turn as Mahatma Gandhi. People used to get motivation and spirits from epics to practice truthful life, to tell truth always. In Sri Rama Navami and other festival celebrations time, I watched that villagers and all sections of people used to get mesmerized while watching the poetic Drama of Satya Harichandra.

On such epic story, in between the years 1975 to 1992, pakka propaganda had implemented by the coup makers. In movies, in weeklies, in literature and in other related programs, a joke had popularized as follows:

Teacher: Children! What do you understand by the story of Satya HarithsChandra?

Children: we have to face many difficulties by saying truth.
Father: Dear Ramu! What did you know by the story of Satya HarithsChandra?

Son: It is better to avoid telling truth. Otherwise, we have to face many problems.

The same joke in different forms was on propaganda until it reached to all sections of the people.

No journal of any media companies had published, no Columnist, no Journalist had written a single essay that, because HarithsChandra told truth, he was still alive in our hearts as Satya HarithsChandra. No intellectual like the one Kula Deep Nayyar, or A.G. Noorani or Nakkeeran Gopalan or N.Ram or Rama Chandra Guha etc. etc. had presented an argument, as there were thousands of kings lived and died, among them Hari Chandra only had given guidance to us.

Coup On Indian Epics [The Power of Trust]

I read somewhere about a European Philosopher, I forgotten his name who said, “If an ant is able to imagine its God, then it can establish Mega or Giant ant with 10 thousand legs and 10 thousand tentacles, as its God. It can praise such Giant ant and fabricate the stories of such Giant ant as epics.”

It may be true. We don’t know whether an ant has such imagination power or not. The ants may establish their own Giant ant God, they may be praising him, and they may be sparing some place to their God to devote, in their anthills. They may have their own epic stories in their ant language, who knows?

Recently our bio scientists had identified that dolphins has their own language, they are capable to keep names to identify dolphins individually and they have their own communication system. There is same case with tigers, elephants and some birds. Among the communication system of some animals, such as sound waves etc, we can’t hear with our ears.

That’s why we must accept that our knowledge and our capacity of senses are limited. Hence, we must accept & respect the Giant ant concept of ants.

Similarly, we must accept and respect the Jew’s jewonism or Zoroastrianism. We must accept and respect the Christian’s Christianity. We must accept and respect Muslims’ Islam, as well, we must accept and respect, Hindus Hinduism. But a coup was planned; implemented on Hinduism to destroy it, to degrade it, to unpopular it and to ruin it. May be some other religions in this world are facing the same coup.

I’ll try to illustrate this coup at my level best. In fact, this coup is still implementing on not only Hindu religion, but also it is on Indian culture, Indian life style, Indian arts, politics etc all fields and totally, it is on humanity and idealism.

I’ll try to explain the coup, the motive of the coup, and the persons behind the coup. I try to establish the mode of implementation of the coup, under different captions.

Here I discuss about Indian epics. The epics are the stories of God. In fact, ‘God is the concept for which belief is the base. A detailed description and discussion about this concept is under the caption of COUP ON HINDUISM AND OTHER RELIGIONS.

When the belief is the base of the concept of God, then how can anybody prove it like scientific concepts? In fact, some astronomical concepts like the beginning of this universe such as ‘Big Bang theory’ or ‘As it is theory’ are also based on belief only. This is because our knowledge is limited to verify or to identify the range of this universe. Its time and space are beyond the limits of our lifetime and vision.

In this context of belief, I narrate you some small stories which were told by Sri Rama Krishna Param Hamsa.

అనగా అనగా..........

Once there was a Guru, i.e. teacher, running a Gurukulam. He had many disciples in his Ashram. Among them, one disciple was very obedient and sincere towards the Guru. He had strong belief on his Guru.

One day, the Guru had gone to have bath in the river. At that time, this disciple was on the other side of the river. The Guru called him to come to him. The disciple didn’t wait for the boat. He started walking on the water of the river, by chanting the name of ‘Guru’.

The Guru felt so proud with the magic power of his disciple. He thought, “When my name has such magic power, I myself must have much more than it. Let me walk on the water.”

He tried to walk on the water by chanting himself as “My self …My self”.

He drowned in water and died

Such are the energies of belief and ego.

That’s the entire story.

In this story, the disciple had belief on his Guru. He trusted in his Guru’s name. It made him to overcome the problem. In the same case, we used to overcome our problems by trusting in God. It is the most common experience of most of the people.

An atheist can argue with us as, “If you don’t keep belief on God, also you can overcome the problems. It’s the magic of your mind, not of God. Because there is no God“. Then we can reply them as “May it is the magic of our mind, you believe that God is no where and we believe that God is now here. When we both are based on the same base i.e. belief, there is no meaning in argument.”

Any way, in the above story, the disciple was obedient where as the Guru was egoistic. He felt ego and proud about himself so that he had fallen in the water.

Coup On Arts – 18 [Purpose of HIstory]

On the other hand, great Vijay Nagara rulers, Pandyas, Cholas had constructed beautiful temples to God, but not with selfishness. They didn’t install their identity in those temples. By investing the public money, they constructed for people only. Temples were the centers for education, for arts, for physical exercises, for health, for tourism, and for recreation. Are they not symbols of arts or symbols of humanity or symbols of love and affection?

This type of publicity to Taj Mahal, as symbol of love between male and female, won’t drive crazy lovers and teenaged or young aged lovers to run after costly gifts? This type of publicity though it is a reason to draw tourist attracting, won’t lead people towards lust and desire full?

Is it much important that how will be our tomb than what we done in life? Which is important? Our tomb richness or beauty, after our death, or helping others, leading righteous life when we alive? Leading life to help poor, to help in needy, to perform good and faith to society, to serve country, to show humanity, to follow human values is much more valuable than our tombs. When we born, we bring nothing. When we die, we take nothing with us. We leave our body even, here on the earth. After death, how beautiful the body, how strong or how healthy, but the dead body will get ruin, get bad smell and decay. For such body, is it necessary to construct a tomb with marbles or with gold or with diamonds? Is it not self-centeredness and selfishness? Without referring this angle, if everybody praises its richness or beauty, is it not a strategy? Is it not coup to make people to run after luxuries, lust or desires?

Otherwise, the beautiful sculptures, arts, architecture, engineering skills, skillful designs of wall and pillars of Madurai Temple and other so many constructions, why didn’t they get minimum publicity? They had constructed past to Taj Mahal. That means the scientific or technical approach of such temples was more ancient than that of Taj Mahal. After 1450 the industrial and technical development in Europe was speeded up. In 1600 A.D. while the construction of Taj Mahal, such technology was available. Whereas while construction of Pyramids or China wall or Madura etc temples, it was not available. Then whose artistic values are high?

Then why such extreme publicity was giving by worldwide media including Indian Governments to Taj Mahal where as minimum publicity or nominal publicity had given to Ancient temples? Is it because Taj Mahal was constructed as a symbol of love between a male and female or a Muslim king constructed it?

In fact, in India every art form is dedicated to God and mingled with devotion. Miraculary astronomical knowledge, solar scientific approach is mixed in the construction of Sun Temples in India. A small bird like ‘Gigigadu’ constructs its nest in most artistic way. A small child wants to Paint his picture with beautiful colors in a pleasant pattern.

With this background, if some color tins are spread in most disorder manner, by keeping a name of modern art and insist us to understand some strange relation less feelings in those color spots, what we can say? Simply put a salute to such modern artist.

Similarly, without any system, rhythm, or Sruthi Laya, if somebody shakes their body and says it is modern dance by name jaj, or salsa or Sambar or Rasam, what we can say? Simply we can say ‘great’.

Actually, Indians had developed cooking also up to an art level. Nala Maharaja and Bheema sena of Maha Bharatam were famous for the art of cooking i.e. Paka Kala. With six tastes i.e. Shadruchulu, salt, sour, hot like chilly, sweet, bitter and ogaru like betel nut, with five eatables such as 'భక్ష్య భోజ్య చూహ్య లేహ్య చూర్ణ పదార్ధములు that means solid eatables, liquid eatables, jelly eatables, paste eatables and powder eatables and with super Rice, food system flourished in India. The subject, food and Nutrition is very young while compare with the Indian Paka kala Sasthram.

In every art, the spirits, the emotions, and the feelings are classifieds by the Saints and elders of ancient times of India into nine categories, which are known as Nava Rasalu. They are [1].Shrungara [sexual], [2].Humor, [3].Pity or Kind, [4].Anger, [5].Ferocious, [6].Fear, [7].Terror, [8].Miraculary & [9].Peace.

This is the level of maturity of Indians and of human beings.

Such that, in any country, in any society, at any time, when the younger generation starts from where the previous generation had stopped, then there will be progress. It is applicable not only to arts and it is applicable to every aspect. Then only to human race can develop.

I can give an example to you to understand this concept. If our parents learnt and developed from 0 to 10, and if we start development from 10 to 20 and if our children start from 20 to 30, definitely our development range is from 0 to 30 within 3 generations. Suppose our parents develop from o to 10. If we won’t accept it by saying, “it is ancient, not modern”. As we are the modern people, and starts from 0 to 10, and if same thing repeats in case of our children, they start again from 0 to 10, hence our development range is from 0 to 10 only within 3 generations. There will be nothing deference with in 30 generations. If we forget our history, our past, our inherited knowledge, our traditions, our development will be from 0 to 10 only, not from 0 to infinity.

To confine the human psychological and spiritual development from 0 to 10, to make the human beings like robots, a coup was planned and implemented. According to that coup, people made crazy towards the so-called modern, made to hate the so-called ancient traditions and made to quarrel with elder generations by claiming as generation gap. Otherwise, where was such generation gap in history?

In fact, the entire ancient is not good as not well as all the modern is bad. According to our wisdom, according to our discrimination, we have to adopt the good from whenever it is good, but with sincerity.

Coup On Arts – 17 [Madhura Nagari Vs RD Burman]

I narrate you one of my childhood experience. In my childhood, the festival of Sri Rama Navami is used to celebrate on large scale. In Guntur, my native town, numbers of pandals with palm leaves were used to construct. Voluntarily people used to form some groups, donate money to celebrate the marriage of Sita Rama Swamy. So many folk artists such as Kolatam, Chekka Bhajana, Tolu Bommalata, Hari Katha, Burra Katha, Classical dances, Music concerts and Dramas of epics with poems of Telugu had shown. Being children, we would be at the Pandals almost all the time, in the evening of those 9 days, last day there will be Annadanam, giving lunch to all poor and public.

Among 9 days, we used to enjoy with the cultural programs with all art forms. The epics stories in the form of poetic Dramas had shown. In the drama of Sri Rama Bhakta Hanuma and other such type of dramas, when Anjaneya Swamy appears on the stage, all the viewers used to stop breathing and watch the stage. The stage will be dark or in red color. The mike will be arranged at two levels, at the bottom of the stage and at the proper height of the artist when he stands up. The artist, who will act as Sri Anjaneya, with get up, used to have Bhajana Chekkas in both hands, raising his voice with devotional song of Sri Rama …. Sri Rama with ‘Rajo pooraka’ tune that means, such tune could motivate Rajassu among the viewers and raising his body slowly with proportion to his raise in voice. The audience breathing will be raise in the same frequency. Though thousands of audiences were present there, complete silence except the singing of Rama Bhajana will be there in the Pandal. When the song is in high pitch, audience will sing Corus along with the actor with a large release of breath.

Such joy, pure joy was free of chemicals, free of cost, free of liquors, free of musical equipments except a small harmony and two drums. It was only the joy of pure art and devotion.

This system was destroyed strategically or by a pakka coup. In Hindi movie, ‘Shoolay’ a famous one, Mr. R.D. Barman had given a song “Mehabooba Mehabooba woo woo” with certain tune to wamp to dance. In Bharata Natyam and Kuchipudi i.e. Classical dances of Indians, there is a famous song in the part of Sri Krishna’s teasing the Milk maids in Vrepalley as “మధురా నగరిలో చల్లనమ్మ బోదు దారి విడుము కృష్ణా!”. That means, “I have to go to sell butter milk in the city of Madura. Let me go. Krishna, please give me the way.” By singing like this, little girls used to dance in Bharta Natyam as Golla Bhama i.e. Milk maid. But this classical song was got a parady form with the tune of wamp song “Mehabooba Mehabooba. Woo ….woo” and was inserted in a Telugu Movie. That vulgar tune polluted the divinity of dance. Whenever the dance was performing in every pandal, mob whistled and laughed at the dance. In this in-discipline, Chain snatchers, pick picketers, eve-teasers had taken the advantages. Hence, the rich and middle class people seized to attend the pandal and to participate in the cultural programs. Slowly in some Pandals, movies of social stories and cowboy stories had exhibited with mini projector camera. Hence the pandal and festival confined to low class or Mass people. Gradually, the celebration of festival got disappeared. This was happened just 30 to 35 years back. My aged generation and I are the witness of this destroys.

In fact, ‘mass’ is a word created strategically to ruin the quality of arts, values in arts and to introduce immorality in arts. Definitely, I can say, no lower income man or mass could imagine his lover or wife to wear such bikinis or cloth ribbons as dress like the heroines in the said Mass movies. For example, in ‘Chirutha’, ‘Krishna’ etc. recent movies or movies with heroes as Chiranjeevi, Bala Krishna and Ravi Teja etc etc. And definitely, I can say that no lower income man or mass could imagine his lover or wife to dance and to expose her body in a group of male dancers. These were stamped movies and forcing as in the story of Nalla Meka – Naluguru Dongalu i.e. BLACK GOAT – FOUR THIEVES. [Hand mark-15]

In fact, ‘mass’ is the word created by the people involved in coup to drive the innocent people in society to such animal’s level to think only about food and sex, but about nothing else.

You can verify the time, the happenings in India. Within 40 to 50 years, the strategy is aimed to ruin the system of Indian society, Indian culture, and Indian life.

In Indian blood, there is a characteristic of dedicating every art, every work, and every matter with devotional concept to God. All the ancient art forms, including movies of early age were with devotional touch only. Indians are particular about quality rather than the appearance. Even to refer a marriage proposal, they prefer a girl or boy, who is known as good rather than good looking.

But within these 40 to 50 years, Indians were forced to run after mirages. Gradually, slowly and systematically the coup makers and the media man had implemented this coup.

I illustrate an example to you. Thousands and hundreds of years back, in India, beautiful architecture and sculpturing arts were established. In North, South and various parts of India, beautiful Temples with wonderful arts, carvings, paintings and sculptures were constructed. I can refer so many ancient temples to you. Madurai, Rameswaram, Kanchi, Ajanta, Ellora, Somanadh, Konark, Puri, Humpy, Holebedu, Sravan Benagola, Lepakshi, Ahobilam etc etc. Many temples! Wonderful arts! Wherever beautiful environment is there, our fore fathers built temples there, like Yaganti, Uma Maheswaram. Wherever natural valuable assets are there, our fore fathers built temples there, like Mahanandi.

So many temples with miraculary art forms, no temple have such popularity as TajMahal. Many temples had built past to Taj Mahal. They were built centuries back where as Taj built only in 1600 A.D. though it was a rich construction, though it was a beautiful construction, but it was built for a human being. Though she was a Queen, but it was a tomb. Her husband, Mr. Shajahan for the sake of his tomb, constructed it also. To invest money, to invest wealth created by the industry of public, poor people of his kingdom, is it not selfish? Though he was an emperor, though he was a king, though he loved his wife very much, to invest public money to construct a rich Tomb instead of investing the public money for public, is it not selfish? That to Muntaj was not his only wife. He had other women also.

If it is a symbol of pure love, then the Mini Taj, constructed by Ajam sha, the son of Aurangzeb in 1951 to 1961 in the memory of his mother, Mrs. Durras Bhanu Begam i.e. Rabbiya at Durvami, the wife of Aurangzeb, is not a symbol of love? This is situated at Aurangabad, 150 K.M. to Shiridi. How many of us hear about this mini Taj? Did it get popularity like Taj in Agra? Though the Taj in Agra is big and rich, though the Mini Taj is not so big & rich as it is in Agra, is it not eligible to get minimum popularity as love symbol or mini love symbol? The love between wife and husband or between male and female is only love? The love among mother and son is not love? Or the love which can lead people to sex is only love? The love among parents & children, among teacher & disciples, among brothers, among sisters, and among friends is not love?

Coup On Arts – 16 [The Artistic Dance of Bulls]

Then the cow Sitamma moved a side. When Dasaratha came one side, she was turning other side, by dropping her head to the ground showing shy as a bride. Then Rama ox approached the cow. A female singer was singing for Sita and a male singer was singing for Rama. Teams of singers were supporting them.

Rama: Oh! Sitamma! I will give silk saris. Come bride!
[ఓ సీతమ్మ! పట్టుచీరలిస్తాను రావమ్మ పెళ్ళికూతురా!]

Sita: Oh! Ramayya! I don’t need silk saris. I won’t come bridegroom.
[ఓ రామయ్య! పట్టుచీరలొద్దు నాకు రానయ్య పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Sitamma! I’ll give diamond necklace. Come bride.
[ఓ సీతమ్మ! రవ్వల పట్టేడనిస్తా రావమ్మ పెళ్ళికూతురా!]

Sita: Oh! Ramayya! I don’t need diamond necklace. I won’t come bridegroom.
[ఓ రామయ్య! రవ్వల పట్టేడొద్దునాకు రానయ్య పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Sitamma! I’ll give garlands of pearls. Come bride.
[ఓ సీతమ్మ! ముత్యాల దండనిస్తా రావమ్మ పెళ్ళికూతురా!]

Sita: Oh! Ramayya! I don’t need garland of pearls. I won’t come bridegroom.
[ఓ రామయ్య! ముత్యాల దండొద్దు నాకు రానయ్య పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Sitamma! I’ll give my life to you. I never leave you, come bride.
[ఓ సీతమ్మ! నాబతుకే నీకిస్తా. నిన్నుడిచి ఉండనంటా రావమ్మ పెళ్ళికూతురా!]

Sita: Oh! Ramayya! I’ll be with you. I’ll follow you. I will come with you bridegroom.
[ఓ రామయ్య! నీతో నేనుంటా. నీతోనే వస్తా పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Then the marriage dances were performed. All of the viewers forgotten the time, we wondered by the expressions & body language exhibited by the oxen and cows according to the dialogues, songs and music of artist. How they could remind the movements according to the drama?

All of viewers praised their talent. There was the tradition to give bride and bridal marriage dress i.e. ‘Thalambralu’ dress to the artists in our house. People had given good rewards to them. Though I was young when I watched this dance play of Gangi reddu, but it was penetrated and stored in my mind, Later whenever I watch circus live or on T.V. I used to recall the memory of it.

In circus though the elephant play football, do cycling, the lions and tigers jump through the burning circles, it looks like feats to me. It looks like an action without feeling in my opinion. In circus, the animal’s feats are without the involvement and commitment of animals. The cruel restriction of trainers and the helpless obedience of animals are projecting in the feats. That is the difference between commercial art and idealistic art. Being cows and oxen, by remembering the song, beat, rhythm to show continued dance steps and body movements, is it not wonderful than the adventurous feats of circus? Is it not the art from heart? Such is the saturated level of folk arts of India.

I hope that the ancient and traditional arts of all races, in all over the world seem to be like this only. Like in India, they might be destroyed. That was the coup. To develop their business, the corporate companies had destroyed this entire heritage. By destroying the arts, cinema & T.V. can be developed as monopoly. So that it will be easy to make money. That is the motive of coup, who ever may be in behind this coup, C.I.A. or I.S.I. or Ramoji Rao?

I try to explain this at my level best. The ancient arts, folk arts are direct exhibit arts. Cinema and T.V. are indirect exhibit arts. On stage when a drama is playing by artists, no possibility of dialogue dubbing. If any tape recorder etc is used to give dubbing, the drama will get failure. The artists can’t depend on any other trick or technology except on his or her own talent and capacity.

In cinema, if the artist is not capable to say dialogue, dubbing is available. What is action without saying the dialogue? Again, artist has no need to sing. Play back singing is available. The worst thing is dupe action. If the artists are not capable to do a feat, dupe will perform it. Camera trick can be used for it. But the entire thing will keep under cover and the artist i.e. hero or heroine etc can give image as if they done such adventure. Hence the drama or stage play or direct art is confined with truth and the cinema is confined with false.

The most worst thing, I will explain to you. If the actor is unable to give right expression of angry or sad etc, the cameramen will do another feat as focusing the camera on that actors face in an angle from x0 to y0 repeatedly and the music director do an extra feat by giving repeated music bit for each camera flash. Thus audiences should emboss that the so-called actor had shown so and so expression as the director of the scene forced us to feel such.

As concern as music also, stage show i.e. direct presentation of music can create resonance among the singer and listeners. Both the singers and listeners can share same emotion, same feeling and same wavelength of art. Whatever the emotion of art from the artist, it can be received by the listeners or viewers.

But with indirect presentation i.e. through electronic media such as C.D.s, movies, and T.V., there is no possibility of sharing of emotion and feelings with art among producers of arts and receivers of arts.

Take example of music, some time back, there was a hit album of Shankar Mahadevan and S.P. Bala subramanyam, by name breathless. It was famous and popular. Later it was known, as the singers didn’t sing continuously without taking breath, they recorded it on 7-track system with breaks. But it was heard that some non-popular singer had sang breathless on stage show.

Such that there is high possibility of showing unworthy, incapacity as worthy and capacitive, with electronic media. Actually, with electronic media, we have other advantages such as the art can be preserved permanently though the artists would pass away. Though the great singers, actors like M.S. Subha Lakshmi, Ghantasala, Rafi etc singers, N.T.R., S.V.R., Savithri etc actors had passed away, we are able to enjoy their arts because of electronic equipments.

But there is disadvantage of deceive, cheat such as giving image to non worthy people as worthy artists. As well as we cannot share the emotion, we cannot experience the resonance of art. In fact, the resonance experience among the artists and receiving people is very high, and happiest. It has to be experienced. Nobody can explain about it to anybody.

To experience such feeling, such happing, now the youth and the public are attending discotheques and pubs. But there is no such healthy divine happiness, pure joy in discotheques and pubs because there is the tinge of smokes and liquids such as cigars and liquors.

Coup On Arts – 15 [Indian Folk Arts]

Not only folk stories, folk arts also, have maturity in thinking’s and in ideas. So many folk arts had ruined because of non-patronize. Leather idols show, Bagavathula Ata, Pagati Veshaalu, Dappu Dances, Padya Nataka i.e. Dramas, Katha Kalakshepam, Ashtavadhanam, Sathavadhanam, Kavya ganam, Goshti, sode etc etc. There was a genetic and traditional relationship in between the Dappu sound i.e. Drum beat and Indian blood. In the loud decibels of Taj, Baj, Disco etc etc musics, folk music has anchor up the Indian heart. Recent Telugu movie song

“ రబ్బరు గాజులు ..........
రిబ్బను, పువ్వులు .........
నువ్వంటే పడిపడి చస్తానే “

That means, I’ll give rubber bangles to you

I’ll bring ribbon flowers for you


I love you like anything.

I’ll die for you.

Such folk songs, such drum beats, fill response in the hearts of Indians from 2 years kid to 80 years old people. That is genetic. No disco, no jaj, no pop, no Indi-pop etc etc has that much echo in the Indian heart.

In Veyi Padagalu, i.e. Thousand snake’s hoofs written by Sri Viswa Nadha Satyanarayana in Telugu have detail description of ancient folk arts. At the time of Sankranthi festival, the artists of Gangireddu i.e. oxen play will come to villages to show their art. I read one incident regarding this Gangi reddu. I wish to narrate it to you. I forgotten the author’s name and I’m sorry for it. According to the author…

One day, the author was brushing his teeth with a twig of Neem by sitting on the outer bench beside the compound wall of his house in the morning. There came a team of artists of Gangi Reddu. But two artists were bent by covering white cloth, dancing like an ox with suitable get up. The music was with full beat of drums and shahanaw. They were dancing according to the rhythm of music with the movement of ox. The author was watching it. He noticed the talent of artists. The artists also watched the keen observation and appreciation of the author in his eyes. The dance and music was in high pitch. The author wanted to test the involvement of artists. He took a small mud stone and thrown it to waist of ox i.e. actor who were dancing like ox. When it touched their waist, just like an ox, the artist had shrugged his waist.

All the audience shouted with joy. It was not as per script, as per pre-planned. It was just spontaneousness. It was the same frequency of viewer of art and artists. Are we enjoying such lively-ness, concentration and commitment in arts? Are we enjoying such resonance [same frequency] among art exhibitor and art receiving persons, whatever the art may be, music, dance or drama?

I narrate you another incident which I experienced in my childhood. Once there came Gangi reddu artists to my grandfather’s place i.e. Sangadi Gunta in Guntur. They performed a show of Sita Rama Parinayam of Ramayanam. That means it was the marriage episode of Sita with Sri Rama. In that team, some artists were making music with instruments like dappu i.e. drum and Sehanai etc. The oxen and cows had decorated with colorful clothes, beeds, garlands, bells and belts. Some artists were singing the songs, saying dialogues and narrating the story. One ox named as Raja Dasaratha, one as Sri Rama and a white cow named Sita. The artists were singing, the oxen and cow were dancing. In the drama, the artists said, “Look! Ramayya is angry with Sitamma. He is displeasure with Janaka Raja.”

The ox, Sri Rama was dancing with high speed. The tinklets and small bells in its neck and on four legs were giving rhythmic sweet sounds, which were like background music to the song of artists. The ox, Janaka was taking rounds around Sri Rama and was acting to convince him by licking its dewlap. When Janaka ox came this side, the Rama ox was turning to other side pretending angry. Both were putting steps rhythmic to the music beat. Both the oxen had shown different steps, exposing displeasure and pleasing. Janaka & Rama oxen acted for the song as

Janaka: “Oh! Ramayya! I will give silk Dhotis, come bridegroom.
[ఓ రామ పట్టుపంచెనిస్తాను రావయ్యా ఓ పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Mamayya! I don’t need silk Dhotis. I won’t come.
[ఓ మామయ్య! పట్టుపంచెలొద్దు నాకు రానయ్యా ఓ మామయ్య!]

Janaka: Oh! Ramayya! I’ll give crop. Come bride groom.
[పొలం పంటనిస్తాను రావయ్యా పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Mamayya! I don’t need crops! I won’t come.
[పొలం పంటలొద్దు నాకు రానయ్యా ఓ మామయ్య!]

Janaka: Oh! Ramayya! I’ll give my daughter a good girl.
[మాపిల్లనిస్తాను, మంచిపిల్లనిస్తాను రావయ్యా పెళ్ళికొడకా!]

Rama: Oh! Mammayya! I’ll come. I’ll come.
[అట్లయితే వస్తానయ్యా మామయ్య! వస్తానయ్యా మామయ్య!]

At the end of song, both had shown same steps of dancing. After that the singers said, “Now Sitamma had displeasure to Ramayya. Look! She is going. Dasaratha Raja! Go to Sitamma. Do pleasing her. Pet her.”

Coup On Arts – 14 [Six Guests From Two Saints]

Bhatti rushed towards them immediately. He prayed “Oh! Saints, today there is a ceremony in my house. Please come to have lunch. Do come.” The saints accepted his invitation. He brought them to palace in the fort and introduced to Vikramaditya. By that time, Vikramaditya rethought about the issue and sensed something wrong somewhere, because Bhatti was not such kind of immoral man to enjoy other’s wife. By watching guests, with Bhatti, he could thought “I should follow Bhatti activities. Though I’m not able to understand, what is happening, let me wait and see. I have confidence on Bhatti.”

He received the guests with cardiology and treating them as a host. Bhatti went into the kitchen and asked Pravala Valli “Sister-in-law. You are like my mother. I want to know, that how much rice you are cooking for us every day.”

She said “Three forth of Padi.”Padi means 1 ½ kg, in ancient measurement. He said “Well mother! Today you cook 2 ½ Padi of rice, dal and other curries in relevant proportion. Prepare nice lunch.”

She said “Okay.”

Bhatti prepared 10 leaf plates to take lunch. He arranged the leaf plates in a room and kept water tumblers. At the lunch time he asked Pravala Valli to serve all the dishes in all 10 plates. He asked to sit two saint guests in front of two plates. They sat, he asked Vikramaditya to occupy a seat, he done so. Bhatti sat in front of another plate. He asked Pravala valli to occupy a seat. She had done so. Five more vacant places were there. Everybody was watching Bhatti with curiosity. Bhatti said with saints “Fathers! You are saints. You know all the Dharma. While we take food, we should not make our co fellows to fast. So please be kind to me. You please allow your wives whom you hide in your hair knots.”

The saints were shocked in beginning. They thought, “This man might know our secret. No alternative to us.” They chatted magic word and allowed the women to sit in front of two more plates.

Bhatti said with the wives of the saints “Mothers! You know that it is not right to take food by keeping our co-members on fasting. Please be kind to me. You please release your lovers whom you hidden in your blouses.”

They frightened first, later thought “We have no alternative. This man had declared our secrecy.” They chatted magic word and allowed the men to sit in front of two more plates. One more plate was vacant. Everybody was with anxiety; Bhatti turned towards Pravala Valli and said, “Mother! Same Dharma with you, you please call your lover whom you hidden inside the rooms to take lunch.”

With shock, she called the washer-man to have lunch. All of they had lunch. Later the saints said, “We are saints. We have magic powers to travel in air etc but we didn’t over come arishadwargas. We thought that our wives are sincere. Now we are leaving them and we want to concentrate on devotion. Let them marry their lovers and lead fresh life.”

Bhatti said “Brother Vikramaditya. What you decide for Pravalla Valli?”

Vikramaditya said, “Brother Bhatti, I didn’t marry Pravalla Valli by loving her. We wanted to test her talent in doing prostitution. We tested her. No doubt, she is talented. We must appreciate her regarding that. Let her marry this washer-man.”

Every body agreed. The saints’ wives had married their lovers; Pravala Valli had married washer man. Bhatti and Vikramaditya made the washer man as the king of that fort, and the lovers of the saint’s wives as ministers to him. They made the people of Kalakanta puram, the previous kingdom of Kala Dharma to pay the taxes to the king.

The saints blessed them all and went by air. Bhatti and vikramaditya returned Ujjain as their period of tour was completed.

That’s the entire story.

In this story, though the talent in sex is not described, the fabrication of the story shows the maturity level regarding sex in villagers. This we can say because this story is a folk story.

Coup On Arts – 13 [The tact of Pravala valli]

Every day Pravala valli was cooking food for them. Bhethala was on guard duty at the door of the fort. Bhatti and Vikramaditya used to go to forest and nearby places by keeping Pravala Valli in the fort and locking its door in the daytime. In the nighttime, they made Pravala Valli to sleep in between them. Being husband, Vikramaditya didn’t touch Pravala Valli. Few days passed.

To wash their clothes, they appointed an old washer woman. She must come, collect the dirt clothes, and return the washed and ironed clothes when Bhatti and Vikramaditya were in the fort. They put such condition. One day the washwoman was sick and asked her son to wash and iron the clothes.

When the washer man was washing the clothes, he observed some pleasant smell in a sari and blouse. He thought that “When the odor of this sari and blouse was this much pleasant, then how much beautiful and pleasant the woman who wear this sari and blouse? What is the use of my life unless I enjoy such woman?”

Since that day, with such desire, the washer young man was sad and fell sick. He became lean. He was not having food and sleep. By watching this, his mother the washer woman asked him “Son! Why are you sorrowful? What’s the matter? What’s your problem? Let me know. I’ll try to help you”. He told about his desire. With shock, she said “Dear son! You desire the non-available fruit. In our fort, some kings were residing. A young girl was there along with them. I also should not go inside when they were not inside. I should go to do service, when the kings were in the fort. That’s why don’t think about her, even in dream. Forget her.”

The washer man said “Mother! I’ll die if I won’t see her.”

The washer woman felt helpless. She said “Well son! Today I will try to speak with her. I’ll try to know her opinion.”

While returning washed clothes to Pravala Valli, the washer woman said “Mistress! I want to request a boon from you. But I fear to ask.” Pravala Valli said “No problem. Tell me. What do you want?” Washerwoman said “Mistress! You are like my Mother. I have only one son. With lust on you, he was sick. He was almost on death bed. Hence you have to give life to my son, if you call him once as “Oh! Washer man” he feels happy. He will be alive. Otherwise he may die. Please be kind to us.” The washerwoman cried like anything.

Pravala Valli didn’t reply for some time. Then she said, “If your son has brain, he can live.” By saying like this Pravala Valli left there. The washer woman took the dirt clothes to home and told her son “Look my dear son. I told everything to her. She said if you have brain. You can live. Except this she didn’t say anything.”

The washer young man felt very happy. When the night came, he dressed in nice clothes and reached the fort. Its doors were locked and its walls were very high. He took a circle walk around the fort to enable to find a way to go inside. He watched a big banyan tree whose hanging roots were large and fallen on the wall of the fort.

He thought that it was the best way to go inside and climbed up the hanging roots, he over jumped the walls and reached the terrace of the fort. By the stair case, he reached down and found the beautiful Pravala Valli, sleeping in between the two men. All were sleeping.

The washer young man thought himself as “If I die in this trial, let me die.” He touched the toe of Pravala Valli. She woke up from sleep. She observed him in the bright light burning in the room and thought, “This man might be the son of washerwoman. If I go to another room, the king and his minister might notice my absence and effort to trace me.”

By thinking like this, Pravala Valli indicated him to enjoy her, there itself. The washer young man felt happy. They made sex there itself, while Bhatti and Vikramaditya were sleeping on both sides to them. In that time, the washer man’s hand touched Vikramaditya, so that we woke up. When he observed Pravala Valli, he thought the man who engaged with her was Bhatti. He turned other side and thought “Bhatti is my minister, my younger brother. Why he is doing like this? To find this girl’s talent I married her and didn’t touch her. If he has desire on her, he should tell me. Won’t I give her to him? Didn’t he know my nature? This is nasty.”

By that time, Pravala Valli’s hand touched Bhatti, so that he woke up. When he observed Pravala valli, he thought the man who engaged with her was vikramaditya. He turned other side and thought “Vikramaditya is my king, my elder brother. He married her and didn’t touch her. If he has desire on her, he should tell me. Won’t I sleep in another room? Didn’t he know my nature? This is nasty.”

By thinking like this, they didn’t sleep well. In the morning, Pravala Valli made the washer man to hide in a secret place in the inner rooms of the fort. Because of disturbed sleep, Bhatti and Vikramaditya woke up by late. In the morning, Bhatti observed Vikramaditya angry with himself.

He thought, “Why my brother, Raja Vikramaditya is angry with me? If he enjoyed his own wife, he should not feel angry with me. He should feel embracing because he didn’t ask me to sleep in other room. But he is angry with me. Something wrong is somewhere. Probably, this girl might engage with some other man, might Vikramaditya thinking that it was I. I have to solve this puzzle.”

By thinking like this, Bhatti was walking on the terrace. With anger, Vikramaditya didn’t talk to him and sat lonely in garden. Bhatti observed the big banyan tree and its large hanging roots which were falling on the wall of the fort. He guessed that somebody had climbed up & entered inside. He was deeply thinking to find what happened.

Suddenly he observed a strange incident. There was a small river near the fort. After that there was the forest into which, every day Bhatti and Vikramaditya used to go to shire. On the bank of the river, two saints came down by travelling in air. After landing on the ground, they chatted some magic word and released their hair knots. Surprise! Two women in thumb size where hidden in their hair knots. The saints allowed them on the floor and said magic word. They grow big as in to normal human being size.

The two saints went to bath in river. The two women walked to little distance and released their blouse knots. Double surprise! Two men in less than thumb size were hidden in their blouse knots. The two women allowed them on the floor and said magic word. They grow big to normal human size.

The two women went to bath in river. The two men walked to little distance and had bath. After bath, the two women reduced the size of two men and hidden them in their blouses, with the help of magic word. The two saints also reduced the size of two women and hidden them in their hair knots. They were about to start.

Coup On Arts – 12 [Vikramarka – Pagati Chukka]

In this story, the art of theft was described, as well as the thief was given as hero image, who dropped his profession of thief ting. Recent movie Dhoom1&2 was like this, giving at least not bad signals in to the society. The story of Rae Chukka – Pagati Chukka is our folk story. I heard its reference from my elders. I read it somewhere without the reference of author.

In Indian society, every art had taken up to Sasthra i.e. science level, including music, dance and sex. Vasthyana Kama Suthra was the matured status of sex, in a scientific approach. It had guided the connoisseurs i.e. persons of taste to enjoy the sex in extreme and healthy manner i.e. without perversions. The saints and Sanskrit literate had taken sex to matured level and high peaks for adults, but not dragged to high school level like sex education for children.

In this context, I will narrate you another wonderful story of Bhatti Vikramarka. There was a talk about the Sanskrit original book of ‘Conversation of Bhatti and Vikramarka’, but it was ruined. It is not in availability. These stories were in the memory of some people, collected and complied in Telugu by Sri Subbarayalu Naayani.

I narrate this story in the context of sex treated as art of talent. As I already explained you about Bhatti and Raja Vikramaditya, they used to rule the kingdom for six months and used to tour on country for another six months in every year.

అనగా అనగా..........

Once Raja Vikramaditya finished his ruling time of six months, he was about to start the time of six months for touring on country. This time Bhatti, his brother and Minister was accompanied with him.

On an auspicious day, they kept the responsibility of kingdom on the other Ministers and started their tour, after performing devotion, pooja to Ujjain Kali Mother.

On the way, they reached the basin of river Tungabhadra. On the bank of that river, there was a town called Amba Puram. In that town, a housewife had done sin of prostitution; she cheated her husband and made extra marital affairs with other men. She was caught by public. In that town, there was a custom to punish such people by killing them. So she was killed and her corpse was left on the bank of the river to remind people and to prevent the people from such bad thoughts.

In disguise, Batti and Raja Vikramaditya were bathing in the river a side. Men and women were coming there to fetch water and were talking about the current issue. Then two young girls came there. They were sisters. By watching the corpse, the elder girl had tears in her eyes. Her name was Mukti Valli that means Garland of pearls. Her sister, the younger girl, named Pravala Valli. That means Garland of corals, asked her why she was crying. Mukki Valli, the married girl said “Look that corpse. She also a woman like us, now her corpse was without cremation.”

Pravala valli, the unmarried girl asked “why her corpse left here, without cremation?”

Mukti valli told the reason. Pravala valli said, “That woman had no talent. If she wanted to enjoy sex with a man other than husband, she must be talented.” By conversing like this, both the girls filled water in their pots and left to the town.

Both Bhatti and Vikramaditya surprised by that. Bhatti said “Being young, how dare that girl to talk like that?”

Vikramaditya said, “Let’s check her talent.” They followed them in to the town and enquired about the girls. They came to notice that those two girls were daughters of Muddau Manikya Setti, a rich diamond business man. Both Bhatti and Vikramaditya had changed their appearance like diamond business men, taken some diamonds with the help of Bhethal’s magic power and opened a shop, opposite to Muddu Manikya setti. Few days passed.

They got touch with other merchants in the town including Muddu Manikya Setti. He appreciated these two young business men. When he enquired their personal particulars, Bhatti said “Sir! We are brothers, our native is Kanchi Puram. Our father is a great diamond business man, called Dhana pala Setti. This is my brother. In search of a good girl to marry my brother, we are touring, as well as we are doing business of diamonds.”

Muddu Manikya setti felt happy and said “Boys! I have two daughters. Elder got married. I’ll give my younger daughter to you to marry.”

They agreed. Muddu Manikya Setti performed the marriage of Pravala Valli with Raja Vikramaditya who was in the disguise of young business man.

After some days, they had given valuable gifts to Setti and said “Uncle! We left our place long back, we want to return home. Let us go! Send your daughter with us.”

Muddu Manikya Setti pleased with them, given sendoff to them.

Bhatti, Vikramaditya, left that town Ambapuram along with Pravala Valli and started walking. After some distance they reached a small town and traced a fort. The fort was locked. Nobody was residing in it. There was a palace, gardens and other buildings inside. They were observing the palace and fort. There came a resident of the town. They asked him “Oh! Man like our father! What is the name of this town? Whose fort is this?”

He said “Men like our father! This has a big history. I’ll tell you in brief. This town is known as Kala Kanta Puram. The king of this fort was Kala Dharma. He was very righteous, faithful and sincere towards people. His ruling was like Sri Rama’s ruling. People behaved according to the rules and Dharma. Though the king was very good, he had a sorrow. He had no children. He performed so many poojas, devotional programmes, yagnas and donations. But he didn’t get children. When he was on deathbed, he asked all the people in the fort to vacate it, to lock it. He desired that except Raja Vikramaditya, nobody should open these fort doors. Since that day, the fort was like this.”

They felt surprise. The man left there. Raja Vikramaditya touched the lock of the fort door. It was opened. They entered into the fort. The fort, the palace and the gardens were lively, neat and pleasant as if somebody were using them every day.

Coup On Arts – 11 [Pagati Chukka - Kothwal]

In disguise, Pagati Chukka followed every happening. He decided to face the challenge. That night Kothwal was on duty to capture the thief. Along with soldiers, he was watching roads and guarding the city. Pagati Chukka had hidden there and watching the Kothwal. After midnight, the soldiers were tired and inactive.

The Kothwal was near Gudi Banda. Pagati Chukka approached at Gudi Banda. Pretending like an ignorant, he was trying to keep his legs and hands in the Gudi Banda in improper way and to lock it. But he was not succeeded in that trial. Again and again, he was trying to do so. But most disorder and improper working was there in his trial. The Kothwal was watching this. In beginning he was alert. After noticing that the man who was trying to keep himself in the Gudi Banda was mad or ignorant, he watched the activity as casual, next with curiosity. By watching the repeated improper trial, he got irritation.

He said “You fool! Not like that. You have to use the Gudi Banda like this.” By saying like this, he locked himself in Gudi Banda. Immediately Pagati Chukka had beaten him on his head and made unconscious, to prevent him to call soldiers. He rushed to the Kothwal’s house and informed his wife and family members as “The thief had beaten our Kothwal. He was unconscious there. You please take him to doctor.”

All of they rushed in the direction shown by Pagati Chukka. Leisurely, he theft all the valuables from Kothwal’s house and left a massage there to the king as “Maharaja! My name is Pagati Chukka. I’m a thief. You can’t capture me.”

With this incident the king felt very angry. He ordered the Minister to capture him. By knowing this, pagati Chukka enquired about the Minister and his family. The Minister had a wife and three sons. His sons were in the Gurukulam not in the house. At present, only his wife and servants were in the house. By night, Pagati Chukka dressed himself like Minister and went to his house. Imitating Minister’s voice, he said “Hai! Servants, come all of you. Here is an intimation that the thief, Pagati Chukka was about to come to our house in my get up. Pack all the valuables, and get ready to capture him.” Minister’s wife and servants had packed the money, ornaments and other valuables. He said, “Let’s drop it in the well for the sake of safety. Bring it to the back land”. He dropped a big stone in the well by keeping all of them in hurry. He kept the packet of valuables in the bushes.

At that moment the Minister entered into the house. Pagati Chukka said, “Catch him. Bind him with rope.” Minister was shocked by watching another man in his own get up and voice. The soldiers caught him, beaten him and bound him with a rope, thinking that he was the thief.

After that, Pagati Chukka said with Minister’s wife, “I am hungry. I’ll take bath and come. Arrange dinner to me.” Minister’s wife went into the kitchen.

Pagati Chukka went to the back land, collected the packet of valuables, and escaped from there silently.

By knowing all this, the king felt irritation. He scolded everybody. In disguise, Pagati Chukka was in the court. The princess Akasa said to the king “Father! These are all fools. This time I’ll try to capture him.”

The king said “Yes. You are right. I know you are capable to do so.”

The princess was a beautiful young girl. Pagati Chukka excited by this challenge. He secretly followed her in the king’s palace. The servant-maid of princess asked “Yuva Rani i.e. Princess! The soldiers, Kothwal and Minister were failed to capture the thief. How can you catch hold of him?”

Akasa replied with a naughty smile “Look. This thief Pagati Chukka seems to be very intelligent. Every day he was defeating our efforts and plans to capture him. That means, definitely he might following the proceedings in the king’s court secretly. Today night, I will wait lonely for him in our Royal garden. Certainly, he will come there and I will capture him. Wait and see.”

Pagati Chukka thrilled about this. That night was full moon day. The Royal garden was beautiful and pleasant flowers were spreading sweet fragrant. There was cool breeze. The princess, Akasa was dressed in beautiful manner. She was waiting in the garden lonely. She thought if soldiers were there, Pagati Chukka might not come there. That’s why she ordered the soldiers to be not there. After some time Pagati Chukka came there. Pretending like tourist he said “Hai! Beautiful girl, I am a tourist. Shall I take rest here?”

Akasa recognized him as thief. He knew it. She was amazed at his handsomeness. He admired her beauty. She thought, “If this Pagati Chukka has been not a thief, I would like to marry him”. He thought, “If she marries me, I’ll leave my profession”. They chatted for some time. She thought “Any way, I’ll mesmerize this young man; I prevent him from leaving here. In the morning I’ll call the soldiers to capture him.”

After some time, Pagati Chukka said, “I’m tired. Let’s sleep.”

They laid on a marble bench. He pretended sleep. Akasa tied her sari border to his dhoti border, to know his movements in the sleep and slept there. With satisfaction and little bit proud of her achievement, she had gone into sound sleep. Pagati Chukka waited for such situation. Silently he got up from there, without disturbing the princess; he had taken off her sari and left the garden.

In the morning, when the servant-maids approached the princess, she was half-nude. This turned as sensational news. People talked about it and it was spread like a wild fire.

The king was horrified. Akasa told her father that she loved Pagati Chukka and wanted to marry him. The king had no children except her. He could not overlook her request. Moreover, he also admired the wisdom and adventure of Pagati Chukka.

He made a public notice as “Mr. Pagati Chukka! I’m glad with your intelligence and dareness. I want to give my daughter to you. Leave your profession. If you use your wisdom to make good to people, you can become as a good ruler. Come to the palace. I’ll arrange your marriage with my daughter and I’m ready to make you as a king after myself.”

By watching all of these thrilling episodes, people also accepted the king’s decision. Pagati Chukka declared his identity. The king arranged the marriage of Akasa with Pagati Chukka. After some years, he became the king of Anantha Giri and ruled in righteous manner.

That’s the entire story.

Coup On Arts – 10 [Rae Chukka’s Shradha Karma]

The king got angry. He said “Well do one thing. Burn that body by this night. Definitely the thief’s son will come there to burn the cut head of the thief along with the dead body. It is our tradition. Nobody will omit it. Go and watch the burial ground. Who ever tried to keep the head in the fire of the dead body, bring him here? He should be the thief’s son.”

Pagati Chukka heard all this. He thought about a plan. At the night he wore black dress from head to toe and painted his face with black color & rode on a black horse, to the burial ground. He rolled big cloth around some sticks, dipped them in oil and fired them to burn. He told two of them in both hands, binds two more of them at his back, and rushed in to the burial ground by making strange shouting’s.

The soldiers who were on guard duty frightened by watching such scene and thought it might be ghost of fire and ran away from there. He thrown the head of Rae Chukka in that fire after taking 3 rounds around the burning body as per tradition and left the burial ground.

Next day morning, in the king’s court, the soldiers reported the happenings in the burial ground.

The king shouted “You foolish soldiers. It is not the ghost of fire, if it is a ghost, why it takes three rounds around the burning body. You heard the horse sound also. Certainly it was the thief’s son. You missed him. He had come there, frightened you and fulfilled his traditional duty. Well, do one thing. Mr. Army Chief! Today night, you make a tent on the place where you burnt the dead body of the thief. So that nobody can collect the ash of the body to perform next traditional program after the death. The thief’s son should come to collect the ash. Then you catch hold of him.”

In disguise, Pagati Chukka was there and knew about the king’s plan. He collected all the personal particulars of the Army Chief. His name was Subbayya. He had wife and children. He had liquor addiction and womanizing nature. He had a lover, by name Vanajakshi who was a prostitute i.e. sex worker. Every day he would go to her house.

With this information, after mid night Pagati Chukka, dressed him like a young woman and went to the burial ground. There at the entrance soldiers were guarding. There was a tent on the spot. With female voice, Pagati Chukka said “Oh! Soldiers! I am Vanajakshi, lover of your boss. He asked me to come to here by this late hour. Let me go to him. Otherwise your boss will get angry”. They didn’t see Vanajakshi in previous but they knew about her name. So without suspecting, they allowed him/her inside.

When Pagati Chukka entered into the tent, the Army Chief was in sound sleep. He put a ball of cloth in his mouth to prevent him from shouting and bound his hands and legs with a rope and tied him to the central pole of the tent. He had taken the ash and left bones of his father’s dead body and left the place by saying thanks to the guards.

Next day morning the soldiers noticed the situation of their chief and reported everything to the king. The king fired out the Army Chief. He said “Tomorrow he will perform consecutive traditional program. As per tradition, being son, he has to mix the ashes of his father’s dead body in the river water or in tank water. And he has to donate food lumps to the crows, which are equivalent to the soul passed away. So, you guard on the banks of rivers and tanks in our city. Whoever is performing this program, bring him here.”

As usual in disguise, Pagati Chukka noticed all of this. Next day morning soldiers were guarding on the banks of every river and tank. Pagati Chukka had gone to Northern gate of the city. There was a river. He was just wore a long cloth piece to cover his waist. His hair was most disorder. He was pretending like a mad man. He was laughing, crying with loud voice and shouting without reason. Dancing for some time and singing for some time. First, the soldiers were alert when they saw him. After some observation, they thought that he might be mad. So they neglected him. He rubbed some ash on his body, poured it on his head. He sank in the water of the river thrice. He cooked rice in a pot on the bank of the river by keeping 3 stones as stove and dry twigs as fuel. He spread rice to all directions and imitated cries of the crows as caw, caw, other birds and dogs. He broken the pot and spread them all over. Laughed, cried, and shouted. Again he sank in the river water and taken bath. He sang meaningless songs. He left that place with a loud laughing. The soldiers didn’t suspect him and his activities.

In the evening, all the soldiers reported to the king about their watching. The king recognized that the mad man was not really mad and he was the son of dead thief.

He felt irritation. He scolded his soldiers for their ignorance. He ordered, “Secretly declare to all the Brahmins Pandits in our city to do not perform any ceremony, ‘Shradha’, which is traditional after the death of family member i.e. on 11th day. Though the host offer large amount of money as “Dakshina,’ the pundits should not perform it. They should inform us who ever approach them for ‘Shradha”. The soldiers obeyed king’s order.

In disguise, Pagati Chukka came to know all this. He didn’t approach any Pandit. Every day he waited at the choultry which was at the edge of the city. One day some tourist Brahmin Pandits came there from neighbor city. He approached them and offered very large amount of money to perform ‘Shradha’. He said “Respected Pandits! I lost my father. Tomorrow I have to conduct ‘Shradha’. I’ll provide food and accommodation to you for two days. I’ll give money as per your demand. You please perform it.” Pagati Chukka was in disguise. They agreed. He had driven them to his house by covering their eyes with cloth piece, at night. Within two days, he completed all the ceremony and left them at the choultry.

The tourist Brahmin Pandits were very happy about his treatment and gifts. While they were enjoying in the choultry, the soldiers noticed them, and sensed something odd. They bought them to the king’s court. The king enquired all the matter. He understood what happened. He asked them “Can you remember him or his house.”

They said, “No Maharaja! He covered his face with a black cloth. He covered our eyes while taking us to his place. Please excuse us.”

The king sent out the tourist Brahmins. He said, “It is a challenge to us. This thief is very intelligent. We have to capture him. It is a prestige to us. Mr. Kothwal! You take this responsibility to capture him.”
