Breaking Indian DancePosted: September 14, 2011
Breaking India, the book which I am reading presently is a must read for all India/Hindu loving people. Many evangelistic/western/Islamic strategies to Break India are thoroughly exposed by the author through this book. The first half of the book which I am presently reading deals with how British with the help of evangelists divided Indians/Hindus on the basis of caste and race. How Hindu texts and languages are approximated to Christian beliefs and those which cannot be approximated were rejected as Brahmin – Aryan conspiracy. The discussion of Bharathanatyam, a Hindu spiritual dance form in the book is very interesting and revealing.
Rajiv Malhotra writes “in early seventeenth century the evangelists and missionaries made scathing attacks on the Indian classical dance forms,” but recently they have developed a sort of love towards the Bharathanatyam and are on a mission to Christianize it. The book talks about a Rani David and following excerpts are from her website.
What is an Evangelist doing with Bharathanatyam ?
I admired Mr. David Rajan’s evangelistic work in Poonthandalam; my role model was also Rev. George of Kalaikaveri who built a huge arts college in Trichy for the poor and outcastes.
Thanks to Pastor Franklin David and his wife Elizabeth for conducting the ‘boomi poojai’ the land dedication. * Mr. David Rajan’s team is helping build a brick-grill compound wall. *
