What Sangh's perceived lack is tact and nothing else.Yes, when these morons are supposedly doing something for my benefit, I should not question their sanity at all, specially when they appear as buffoons(recent remarks on reservations) and an embarrassment for me. People like you will make sure that sangh becomes irrelevant in the next few decades , by shutting down its critics.
Anyway answer my question what would be more embarrassing thing for you to do in the public today? Admitting that you are a sanghi or admitting you are a journalist/leftist today? Why? Whose fault is that?
I am a Sanghi, has been for a few years now. All my friends and co-workers know it.
And have been working out side of India for over 15 years now.
Your point though is semi accurate. I USED to be like this a decade back.
When ever some one asks me if I am a Hindu, I used to be apologetic and instead of saying a firm YES, my answer would also have a 'but'.
Now not any more. It is a firm YES. The point being, a lot of Hindus are still like how I used to be, especially the urbane and educated kind, who are apologetic for who they are. It is this same 'attitude' which leads to my answer to your question of Sanghi vs commie/Journo.
Again, RSS and BJP is not perfect. But they have started something. The current crop of RSS will give way to new blood and it could some one from among us. We can bring in new ideas and more 'subtlety' to the whole process. From where I see this process has already started with Modi Ji at helm. There is a push to change the institutions without the narrative being hindutva from the PMO.
As much as I cheer for VHP and Bhajrangdal, their methods are crude though they serve their purpose.
I definitely would love to know ideas from DFI folks and how they are helping the cause in any small way they can. Like I said, all talk without action is meaningless. Unfortunately It is what a lot of Hindus are used to. We need to change that first.
