VSK Chennai Sandesh



Intelligence in trouble

There was a report in the Tamil media that a visitor to Tamilnadu from Malaysia was taken aback by the absence of any wall writing or poster during the poll campaign.  But the only poster making its appearance is that of the Election commission appealing to the voters to exercise their franchise. But last week some anti-social elements put up posters in several parts of Chennai calling upon the people not to vote—the usual naxalite campaign.  Police took no action. Hindu Munnani promptly took up the case with the Chennai District Collector.  It had effect.  Two persons were arrested. But Hindu Munnani points out that police, the intelligence section in particular, should have taken suo muto action and rounded up the culprits because the anti election appeals is against the Constitution and so anti national.



Hey Hindu, You Are Great!

People of Thoothukudi, a district place infested by conversions, were pleasantly surprised to find a booklet titled ‘Hey Hindu, You Are Great!’ delivered free at their doorstep.  It is the seva karya of ‘Bhakti Peravai’ (a forum of devotees), a diligent group in the town.  As the title suggests, the booklet lists the greatness of Hindu Dharma and the duties of Hindus. The booklet contains interesting information; every year on August 15, the ancient Nataraja (Shiva) temple in Chidambaram, the national flag (tricolor) is reverentially placed on a silver plate and placed on the altar of Nataraja and then is hoisted upon the Gopuram (tower).  One S Kulasekaran heads the Peravai. 

Door to door, democratically!

Here is an unusual news report carried by ‘The New Indian Express’ of Chennai on April 14, 2014:  “Quietly, with no fanfare, around 15,000 volunteers of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its sister organizations are campaigning across Tamil Nadu in support of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidates contesting the Lok Sabha elections scheduled to be held on April 24 in the state. Even before the campaign started a month ago, the Sangh Parivar outfits were already on another mission: to ensure that the names of all eligible voters, particularly youth, figured in the electoral rolls. And the small army comprises entirely of volunteers from all saffron outfits, who have taken a break from their work to contribute to the campaign. ‘Many are families. The response from women and youth for this work has been particularly overwhelming’, according to an RSS activist”.
