Aliens,- They Are There, Everywhere.

Aliens are defined as ‘extraterrestrial life, life which does not originate on or from Earth’. The word also has another contextual meaning: ‘A person living or moving around in a country who is not a national of that particular country’ is also an Alien.

The second meaning confirms that an Alien need not necessarily be an extraterrestrial individual. Take for example the case of Indian citizens who live or move around in Countries like America, Great Briton, Canada and other Nations with or without valid visas, seeking pastures in the field of employment and jobs. They are certainly Aliens in those Countries. But, as far as India is concerned, it is not only the foreign nationals who stay in India who could be Aliens for India but there are millions of Indians who are Aliens in their own beloved Nation.

In India which is the citadel of Casteism under the banner of Chatur Varna Vyavastha, except for the upper-caste conglomerate, all the others are Aliens and therefore untouchables for the toppers in the ladder of Chatur Varna Vyavastha.  Similarly, for the so-called North Indian Aryans, black-colored South Indians are Aliens, too.     

As per general concept, Aliens are “residents” of Planets other than the Earth; it means that aliens are inhabitants of planets which are outside Earth. Not only that: For some evaluator-clans, Aliens are equal or more intelligent than the earthlings called humans.

A few years back, a section of Western News-media had reported that some people had seen Aliens landing on Earth, moving around for some time and then quickly disappearing from the visibility-circuit of the earthlings. If that report is to be taken as true, then, may be, those Aliens which had landed on Earth, might have fled away quickly from the perimeter of Earth in order to reach their own Planet without giving any clue to the Earthling-spectators about their shape, structure, style of movements and looks.

In the context of the above featured story of alien-landings, one thing apparently remains relevant:  That is about the reporting style of modern news-media: Whatever that gets reported in the media need not necessarily be true, factual or reliable. That is the modern way of media reporting on one side and the stand of the readers and the viewers on the other side of the spectrum. Sensationalism is the strongly held motto of modern reporting style of the media. The most important principle of inquiry and confirmation before reporting has been left behind by reporters for the purpose of enhancing readership, circulation and viewership. In the said background, the stories about the appearance of Aliens from other planets on earth and selected people having seen them cannot naturally be given any credence.

Any living organism with mass cannot disappear from the surface of Earth bypassing the gravitational pull. So far there has been no authentic proof of evidence to establish the truth of Aliens landing on Earth and disappearing in no time. Therefore whatever has been reported about the Aliens visiting Earth frequently cannot be taken into account as true. Whether true or not true, it does not matter because the extraterrestrial siblings are bound to leave the Earth immediately without creating any hiccups for the earthling-human species. However, the Aliens who are of the Earth, who wander around on the same Earth seeking employment or playing mischief in other Countries are real problems for the nations concerned.

Going back to the Indian context, though that Country wears the robe of secular-democratic-republic status, the alienated citizenry belonging to the lower-caste strata, painfully bear the burden of being treated as Aliens by the upper-caste communal forces. They are therefore real hiccup-problem for the Secular, Democratic Republic of India. The alienated lower-caste black-colored citizens of the Country are no extra terrestrials who landed on the soil of India. Neither are they migrants from other Countries. They cannot fly away from the surface of Earth like the Aliens which landed on Earth from other planets. Therefore they are real hiccup for the Holy Land of Bharat called India, the secular-democratic-republic as portrayed in Text Books of the Nation.            

Spiritualism – It’s Null, No Good

Meaning of spiritualism is simple and straightforward: Dictionary says that, Spiritualism is a belief: According to the particular belief, spirits of the dead persons communicate with persons who are alive, either directly or through mediums.

A close look at the meaning reveals that spiritualism might have emerged out of a metaphysical belief that the world is made up of two substances called matter and spirit: Humans belong to matter which is essential for spirit to inhabit as soul and then to escape into spirit world. Spiritualism is based on the concept of the Spirit World.

Over the years spiritualism became a creed which believes that there are human beings who are capable of communicating with spirits: Spirit is soul of dead persons which after escaping from the living body, wanders in the spirit world. It is believed that some living persons can communicate with the spirit world. That ability to communicate with the spirit is said to be paranormal skill of the living humans. The paranormal ability helps humans to create occult powers, to make magic potions, to perform sorcery, to practice witchcraft, to believe in supernatural powers, to create ideas about god, to worship and to work as priests, godmen, godwomen, sanyasis, sadhus and innumerable other divine entrepreneurs.

Spiritualism comprises many things for many people. Since spiritualism has evil designs as well as divine benefits some people use spiritualism for harming other people and some people follow spiritualism for infusing divinity for self and others. Sorcery, kill-mantra; – the most followed ritual in the Indian subcontinent relating to sacrifices of animals and occult practices, are examples for harming others. Here the spirit of dead persons which do not get entry into heaven but wander in the spirit world as ghosts, go on haunting the living humans and animals: That helps the ghost-hunting spiritualists to employ their hidden tantrums to tie down the ghosts.

On the other side of the spectrum lie religious propagandists like priests, evangelists, sanyasis, godmen and godwomen who use the omniscient power of the spirit world to inculcate divinity, love and compassion and also hatred among their followers. Since religion is involved in the practices, the path of love and compassion for others become route for destruction of one system of belief by another system of belief. That apart, acute dedication to spiritual pursuits make the followers of spiritualism idle and unproductive as a result of which the spiritualists have to depend on materialist pursuers for their sustenance in the physical world.

The concepts attributed to spirit world that embrace the empire of spiritualism have no limits in so far as the subjective thoughts and imaginations of human mind are concerned.

There are convincing evidences to prove that spiritualism originated in Ancient Indian subcontinent known as Bharat. It all started with the Aryan invasion which took place around 1000BC. There was a flourishing civilization existing in Bharat before the arrival of Aryans from the Persian subcontinent. That was cantered around the Sindhu river belt in the northern part of the subcontinent. That civil society was of atheists who were called Charvakas. The Aryans brought their culture based on obscurantism of spiritualism and occupied the land of atheism after driving away the Charvakas to the South. Practice of Chatur Varna Vyavastha headed by Brahmins was the major part of spiritualism of the Aryans. Brahmins ruled the whole social set up and cultivated spiritualism in every area of existence of the people under the Chatur Varna Vyavastha which categorized the people into Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas and Sudras  at the helm of the system. Slowly and steadily the Varna Vyavastha and spiritualism associated with it spread across the entire subcontinent. Spiritualism continues its pervasive stranglehold in India and today, with added vigour and might spiritualism controls the whole of social, cultural and political scenario of the country.

Apart from Bharat, spiritualism was wide spread in China, Japan, Pacific Islands and other parts of the world as part of ancient beliefs and related cultural pursuits of the inhabitants of those places.

The most popular western version of spiritualism is said to be devoid of belief in rebirth and past life concepts and is different from its original postulations as reflected in the practice of spiritualism in India. It is said that the practice began its spread in the West sometime in early eighteen forties of Christian era with the magic of an illicit female who created stories about knocking at doors and windows and flying of furniture across rooms and roofs by the spirit of a certain dead person. Today across the western countries several Christian churches and Groups of believers have thousands of Spiritualists practicing spiritualism in United Kingdom alone.

Practice of spiritualism in the west is centred mainly on mediums which with the help of spirits carry out unnatural events and occurrences like occult practices of Ouija. Spiritualism followed in the West is different from divine postulations of Christianity or Islam which stand for love, compassion and formed centres of spiritualism. It is said that in late 1920s and early 1930s there were other religiously occupied precepts of the spirit world.

Spiritualism is a mirage: Spiritualism cannot feed the empty stomachs of people including the spiritualists. Had there been no materialism and materialistic pursuits there would not have been any production to sustain the life of humans. Such a situation would have made the Earth-World a lonely Spirit World devoid of Humans to imagine anything including the idea of spirits and spirit-world.
