In this class we continue the study of Karma Yoga. We learn about how Actions are default not inactivity. We brush upon the concept of Yajna. In the last part of the lecture, we look at what differentiates a Religion from Traditions.
The narrative of Indian Freedom struggle is singularly dominated by this notion that Indian Freedom was achieved by non-violent political dialogue. The fact remains that the political dialogue was an escape route for the British as colonialism was turning too costly due to Indian Revolutionaries. Innumerable martyrs have fought their battles and have made Freedom possible. The Indian state has just shunned their memory for the Gandhian grand narrative. ALAKH2011 is definitely a welcome attempt to tell the real story of freedom struggle, the innumerable lives that were sacrificed for posterity to enjoy the fruits. This is a must watch!!
