“One ounce of action worth more than tons of discussion.”

Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire (1694-1774)

" I am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganga (Ganges), - astronomy, astrology, metempsychosis, etc … It is very important to note that some 2,500 years ago at the least Pythagoras went from Samos to the Ganga (Ganges) to learn geometry...But he would certainly not have undertaken such a strange journey had the reputation of the Brahmins' science not been long established in Europe..."                    

1. Bala Samskar Kendras Discussed about Azad Hind and the Independence Movement and recited slokas about our Traditions  (Oct 14)

Teaching about Azad Hindu Diwas

On 21 October 1943, Bose announced the formation of the Provisional Government of Azad Hind (Free India), with himself as the Head of State, Prime Minister and Minister of War.

The Provisional Government not only enabled Bose to negotiate with the Japanese on an equal footing but also facilitated the mobilization of Indians in East Asia to join and support the INA. Soon after the announcement, the Provisional Government received recognition from various countries.

“Time has come for three million Indians living in East Asia to mobilize all their available resources including money and manpower. Half-hearted measures will not do. …Out of this total mobilization I expect at least three hundred thousand soldiers and three crores that is thirty million dollars.”

Welcomed 15 Christians back to Hinduism

Lakshmi Nivas and his associates welcomed 1 Christians from Kothapalli Mandalam in Narayanapeta District back to Hindu Dharma. They used to go to BM Church.  They talked about the tactics they used in converting people and how they induce people to convert to Christianity. Many converts expressed their own experience of being pressured into accepting Christianity and how it created fear in them. Jesus says one cannot love his parents more than Jesus. As you can see that Jesus came here with a sword only to create enemies, and hatred toward others. He says we have to leave our parents, not associate with our family members, and not even attend funerals. Even your father you cannot do last rights for your own father.

Some of the Bala Samskar Kendras talked about Dr A P L Abdul Kalam who was born on October 15, 1931 in the pilgrim center of Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. His father Jainulabdeen Marakayar was a boat owner and imam of a local mosque; his mother Ashiamma was a housewife. His father owned a ferry that took Hindu pilgrims back and forth between Rameswaram and Dhanushkodi. As a young boy he sold newspapers in order to add to the family's meager income.

In his school years, Kalam had average grades but was described as a bright and hardworking student who had a strong desire to learn. He spent hours on his studies, especially mathematics. After completing his education at the Schwartz Higher Secondary School, Ramanathapuram, Kalam went on to attend Saint Joseph's College, Tiruchirappalli, from where he graduated in physics in 1954. He moved to Madras in 1955 to study aerospace engineering in Madras Institute of Technology.
