A very brief commentary

So,I found this article by Garga Chatterjee a year ago,and he reshared this again a few days ago.

 

My two cents:

 

  • Delinking devī from a movement that is meant to protect Hindu samāja,no matter how defective it is at its  present stage is of no sense.
  • It is clear that the author only uses Devī as a prop to write against those who are the best wishers of the guard of Hindu society against aggressions.
  • It would have been a lot better if She was invoked more frequently all over India. The festival is already becoming secularized more day by day,and not many seem to be noticing it yet. Or thought over the loss to Hindu tradition the ‘secularization’ can bring about.
