Wanted to get everyone thinking..
It's not always that one is strapped of resources but one may not know where they would get the most value(satisfaction, fulfilment) for money.
Scenario: Imagine you are a well meaning philanthropist but you might end up supporting a cause by spending your million dolah on a cause being run by NDTV, the quint and JNU for the lack of better knowledge

Conversion of abrahamics into dharmic

Sent from my vivo 1601 using Tapatalk
That will be a "vision" yes. But to achieve this vision will you go door to door do it yourself( you don't need the spare cash for this, if you did this on weekends). Employ some people(some or all of that million bucks will be useful here). Donate to an organisation that does this sort of work(some or all of the million bucks will be useful here).If it is the last option that you are inclined towards, how would you know which org to back?

If I had and if I could...


I would set up a club of volunteers who will go to the nearby schools (where children of poor and ordinary people study). These volunteers will give food and required knowledge on nationalism to the kids in the poor and ordinary neighbourhood school.

Food can sponsored by the spare million dollar and some people even can be hired to spread the message

Build a college for students at affordable rate
Start a NGO that helps the passionate but financially incapable students to fill up exam forms, provide study material and counselling facility.
Build colleges with reservation for only open category......... All reservation quota chaaps will be restricted at my college............

Open companies that give jobs only to open category deserving candidates and no reservation quota chaaps allowed............

I would spend on rejuvenation of Old temples and build a system which supports society around it. By establishing gurukuls to correlate spiritual and science together in one place. By helping society to figure out dependence on each other and establish social structure (jobs on there capacity ) with low living expenses (self sufficiency ) through solar for power, aquaponics or hydroponics for food production, cheap home for living and small scale manufacturing units to produce and export products. With the profits buy further lands to settle, accommodate, sustain poor individuals and build a old successful dharmic eco system.

Initially may be u can call it ashram + baba ram dev manufacturing units. Which ever way.

It's great we've started a conversation on this.
Rajiv Malhotra was once asked by Rajat Gupta( guy who ended up behind bars due to insider trading) that what if we set up an Indic studies(or something similar) chair in an Ivy league uni. To which Rajiv Malhotra responded that it may do more harm than good as without direct day to day involvement of the donor, these endeavours tend to get hijacked by "breaking India" forces.

I am seeing a few ideas emerging;
1. Encourage an educational institution or similar
2. Private militia
3. A Vedic village with a temple/gurudwara as it's focal point

Regarding point 1. I think we always talk about this at a high level, a 50000 ft view. Thought needs to be given on what exactly will be an outcome from this endeavour.
Saurav raised a point regarding providing "nationalist education in such a institution:. Thought needs to be given on what would such a syllabus cover.
I can think of some institutions which have that flavour, aren't Shishu Bhawans, run by the Sangh on similar lines?
I think it is time we start a Gap Analysis on this subject and clearly list the gaps.

Regarding point 2. Very out of the box. I think the Ananda Margis among some other tried this. You need to consider the potential friction with the IPC on this, among other things.

Regarding point 3. Aren't such establishments already in existence? Like the Isha foundation in Coimbatore? What are the gaps

I want to say that any thought on this is welcome. For instance, donate the entire 1 mil on Bharat ke Veer?

Though the money is too small but I will open a university for Sanskrit and Tamil language, Indian classics, vedshalas, establish R&D units for these language's utility in modern world and excavate back what has been stolen from us and many more....................

My target money is from 500 million to 2 billion at the start.

Yes I agree 1 million may be a small amount. Consider the "1 million" as a placeholder

Interesting idea Hit&Run. I remember I donated a little through swarajyamag for a Vedic university. Let me look for the link.

The one thing I have repeatedly tried but with little success is to get the conversation started on a truly aspirational Indic Hindu school here in Auckland. I mean we do have a small one run by Iskon in Kumeu but it's too little.
All I have got is dismissive shrugs in return.
Except from the Gujrati community(I'm a bong). They said that the swaminarayan sect did pitch this idea but there were very few takers even among the Indian community.
If the Anglicans, Catholics have schools where even non xtians aspire to send their children why can't we.

Back to your idea. What are the moving parts required? Where does one start? Are we making sure we are not re-inventing the wheel I.e. maybe there is something like this already which requires regular infusion of capital?

In New Zealand I have a dream of opening Hindu private School. Recently I went to a Catholic School in Hamilton. I saw a picture Gallery where they had pictures about Indian poverty. These bastards took their Year 10 students to India for poverty porn. They start grooming their kids from schools to be missionaries in any sphere of their professional life.

My another dream is to start Punjabi nationalist Radio Channel.

Yes can't put past the xtians to start early indoctrination of the young.
Glad to know someone else is thinking in similar lines, with respect to a Hindu Private school.
Brother we don't have any in India as well. A Hindu school of such repute that people aspire to send their children there.

The Nationalist radio is a good thought, may not be that expensive either. I can't bear to listen to the 2 desi radio stations we have due to their shoddy content.

My idea with this thread is to gather some meta data after a month to see what us nationalists aspire.
