Now, that Mr. Mohan Bhagavat, the Elderlyman of R.S.S. has clarified that they are not going impose the utterance of "Bharat Mata ki jai" as a token of nationalism or patriotism, the time has, probably come for us to treat the matter as closed, and start something else afresh. Let us hope that Mr. Mohan Bhagawat will not change his stance after the Elections to the State Assemblies of Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Assam, Kerala, Bengal are over.
Mr. Kanhaiah Kumar, the ecstatic-stance possessed JNU student leader, while speaking at Vijayawada, has raised one important pertinent question. The Bharat Mata of the Ruling Party is dressed in silk sarees and bejewelled with gold ornaments, whereas the 'typical Bharat Mata' as a representative of Indian Womanhood is a half-starved, wearing torn clothes, hard-working woman, beset by her hungry children beseeching her for food.
About this Kanhaiyakumar's Bharat Mata, there seems to be one article by the noted journalist Shri Akar Patel. Unfortunately, I could not get it and read it. I shall shortly fulfil this need.
But, in TimesofIndia-IndiaTimes.Com, there is one important blog which seems to be a response to Mr. Akar Patel's article. Here is its link: Click to go to TimesofIndia.indiatimes.com. date: 21st March 2016. .
The main theme of this blogger's (Shri Abhilash Gaur) is: "If you can’t stand Kanhaiya’s view of Bharat Mata, try Nehru’s", is its title. "You" here seems to refer to Mr. Akar Patel , or Readers who cannot adjust with Kanhaiya Kumar's vision of Indian Bharat Mata. This blog has quoted from Jawaharlal Nehru's Autobiography by name "India Old and New".
I furnish below a FREE DOWNLOAD LINK to Jawaharlal Nehru's autobiography, available at Archive.Org. It is about 444 pages in size. (Click to go to) Archive.org.
I am directly quoting from Late Jawaharlal Nehru's Autobiography, contents of which are self-explicit.
It is curious how one cannot resist the tendency to give an anthropomorphic form to a country. Such is the force of habit and early associations. India becomes Bharat Mata, Mother India, a beautiful lady, very old but ever youthful in appearance, sad-eyed and forlorn, cruelly treated by aliens and outsiders, and calling upon her children to pro tect her. Some such picture rouses the emotions of hundreds of thousands and drives them to action and sacrifice. And yet India is in the main the peasant and the worker, not beautiful to look at, for poverty is not beautiful. Does the beautiful lady of our imaginations represent the bare-bodied and bent workers in the fields and factories? Or the small group of those who have from ages past crushed the masses and exploited them, imposed cruel customs on them and made many of them even untouchable? We seek to cover truth by the creatures of our imaginations and endeavor to escape from reality to a world of dreams.
ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय . వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వాణి. You have every right to differ with me. I respect your right. आपको मेरे मत से भिन्न राय रखने के संपूर्ण हक है। मै उस अधिकार को परिपूर्ण रूप से गौरव देता हुँ. మీకు, మీ భిన్నమైన అభిప్రాయాన్ని కలిగిఉండే సంపూర్ణ హక్కు ఉంది. దానిని ఎంతో నేను గౌరవిస్తాను. However, pl. examine this donkey's views also. परन्तु एस गधे के दृष्टिकोण को भी अनुशीलन कीजिये. కానీ ఈ గాడిద దృష్టికోణాన్ని కూడ ఓర చూపుతో కంటజూడుమీ, క్రీగంట జూడమీ.
1. Our word-juggler, and the Asst-de-Publicity man of our Resurgent India Shri Narendra Modi, i.e. our Parliamentary Affairs and Urban Development Minister, has two clarify about this two Bharat MatAs. Audi Alterim Partem.
2. While the BJP, RSS, ABVP, and their followers can pray to the crown-saffron-silk-gold version of Bharat Mata, others who do not want to hail the BJP Version of Bharat Mata, can hail the Kanhaiya Kumar Version of Bharat Mata.
3. Our country is accommodative and pluralistic. Let BJP and its associate bodies, not try to NARROW it down.

Mr. Kanhaiya Kumar has come to Hyderabad by air. Who bore his air-fare? Corporates will not bear. Of course, we should be fortunate, that though his mother's monthly income is just Rs. 3,000/-, he has not yet started using CHARTERED AIRCRAFT. When he becomes some Chief Minister or Prime Minister will he wear expensive coats?
Mr. Narayana, our CPI National Executive Member from Telangana, seems to be too eager to fly piggyback on Mr. Kanhaiya Kumar's back. He wrote one Telugu article in second top Telugu Daily Andhra Jyothi dt. 29.3.2016, indicating that he takes pride in supporting Kanhaiaya (kannayyaku maddatuku garva paDutunnAnu). Mr. Narayana, like Kanhaiya Kumar, seems to be a person in a hurry.
To continue. सशेष. ఇంకా ఉంది.
