Another wrong colonized gaze on Hindus/Indians! Famous Researcher is explaining in short clip why Western Left/Right wing concepts don’t fit in India. Colonized brainwashed and some ignorant crowd in Indian media/history/literature/sociology/politics still label Left/Right wing to differentiate two thoughts while discussing politics or sociology.
Traditionally, it’s about Dharma Vs Adharma in 10000+ years old Diverse and Dynamic Indian Civilization. Indians (dharma) believes same truth can be told in multiple ways by different minds, so there are many Paths/Gods/Faiths/Thoughts in the world, no path is superior or inferior- all are equal and each individual has freedom to choose his/her Swa-Dharma (own customized path). Therefore, we all must give Mutual Respect to each other, without imposing our Thoughts/Ideologies by hook or crook on others!
In today’s Global perspective Dharma also means modernization without westenization! See picture below clip, leading Indian Women Enterpreneures/ Businesswomens/ Bankers who reached high position without leaving behind Indian values/culture/civilization!
Irony, still westerners and many Indians use Left/Right phrases in India. Its time Indians should get rid of colonized mindsets and discover new terms while discussing two different perspectives in India.
