    Maharshi Dayananda (Hindi)

    Author : Onkar Nath Sharma
    Publisher : Amar Chitra Katha
    Publication Year : 2010
    Binding : Paperback
    Swami Dayanand Was Born At A Time When Our Country Was Under Foreign Domination. Most Of The People Were Steeped In Ignorance And Poverty. Hypocrisy And Corruption Flourished In The Name Of Religion. Women Were Not Allowed To Have Formal Education, Nor Those From The Scheduled Castes. They Were Required Only To Serve The Rest Of The Community Without Ever Being Given The Opportunity For Development. Prejudices Of Creed, Caste And Community Had Corroded The Social Cohesion And The Wily And The Wicked Were Ruling The Roost. Swami Dayanand Was Greatly Shocked By This Abominable State Of Affairs. He Gave A Clarion Call To The Nation To 'Arise, Awake And Stop Not' Till The Religious And Social Evils Were Mitigated. Priests And Pandits Were Naturally Alarmed By His Zeal For Social Reform And National Resurgence. He Wrote 'Satyartha Prakash' Which Unfolded And Interpreted The Age-Old Wisdom Of India, Enshrined In The Vedas. He Also Exposed The Diabolical And Malicious Designs Of The Priests And Preachers Who Were Fooling Innocent People In The Name Of Religion. He Emphasised The Importance Of Women'S Education. He Raised His Voice Against Bigamy And Child Marriage While Fully Supporting Widow Remarriage. A Nationalist To The Core, He Urged The People To Boycott Foreign Goods And Style Of Living. He Did Not However Propagate Or Establish A New Creed Or A New Sect Like Many Of His Contemporaries. He Founded The Arya Samaj To Help Make The People Self-Confident And Self-Reliant; And To Uplift And Reform The Society. A Large Number Of Its Branches Sprang Up Throughout India. His Main Purpose Behind Establishing The Arya Samaj Was To Rid The Society Of Evils And Thereby Build A Free, Strong And United Nation. In Fact, He Prepared The Psychological And Social Background For Mahatma Gandhi'S Subsequent Political Programmes. He Was, Truly Speaking, One Of The Great Builders Of Modern India.
  5. Tulsidas (Hindi)

    Tulsidas (Hindi)

    Author : Suresh Chandra Sharma
    Publisher : Amar Chitra Katha
    Publication Year : 2010
    Binding : Paperback
    The Ramayana, Written In Sanskrit By Valmiki Is Considered To Be The 'Adikavya', The First Ever Poem. Tulsidas Rendered It Into Hindi In The Sixteenth Century. But His 'Ramcharit-Manas' Differs From The Original In Many Ways. It Was Written At A Time When A Very Vast Area Of India Was Under Mughal Rule. Amongst The Hindus, There Were Frequent Controversies Between The Worshippers Of Shiva, Vishnu And The Mother Goddess, And Again Between The Worshippers Of Rama And Krishna. There Were Also Cults Which Were Almost Cut Off From The Mainstream Of Indian Life. It Is To The Credit Of Tulsidas That He Tried To Weave All These Cults Into An Integrated Whole. He Made His Rama Say That He Would Not Tolerate Anyone Who Showed Disrespect To Shiva. He Worshipped Not Only At The Temples Dedicated To Rama But Also At Those Dedicated To Krishna. His Works And Teachings Stressed The Importance Of The Life Of A Householder And Weaned People Away From The Tantric Cults. Tulsidas Hailed From A Poor Family Of Rajapur In Uttar Pradesh. He Was Orphaned Soon After His Birth And Even His Foster-Mother Died When He Was Barely Seven Years Old. When He Was Married, He Became Deeply Attached To His Wife, Ratna. She Was The First Person In His Life Whom He Could Call His Own. One Day Not Finding Her At Home On His Return, He Became Extremely Restless And Rushed To His Father-In-Law'S House In The Dead Of The Night, Braving Heavy Rains And A Storm. But Ratna Rebuked Him And Said, "Had You Loved Rama As Intensely As You Do This Bundle Of Flesh And Bones, You Would Have Overcome All Mortal Fears." This Was The Turning Point In His Life. The Story As Narrated In This Book Is Mostly Based On Legends. A Contemporary Of Shakespeare, Tulsidas (1532-1623) Was Known For Singing The Glory Of Rama, The Prince Of Ayodhya. The Ramcharitmanas, Tulsidas Version Of The Ramayana In Awadhi, A Dialect Of Hindi, Consists Of Over 1,0000 Stanzas Of About 12 To 18 Lines Each. Tulsi'S Words Are Musical And Hypnotic. Every Village And Town In The Hindi Heartland Has A Troupe That Enacts The Story Of Rama Based On Tulsida'S Work.
