KEYS TO THE AWAKENING OF BHARATA
Failure to Create a Bharatiya Kshatriya Model:

According to the traditional Hindu views as expressed in teachings like the Bhagavad Gita and Mahabharata a country needs a strong and Dharmic Kshatriya (political/military or warrior) class to rule it. Only those of a Kshatriya temperament have the character, common sense and force of personality to control the evil elements in society, and protect the country from its enemies, which India has in great abundance as a Hindu majority democracy surrounded by Islamic and Communist totalitarian and semi-totalitarian states.

This failure in leadership models is reflected in a failure to create a new Kshatriya, a topic that will be discussed at length in the following chapters. Mahatma Gandhi himself, overemphasizing non-violence which in traditional Hinduism is essentially a Sannyasa Dharma or practice for monks and renunciates, failed to give credibility to the Kshatriya element in society and gave Hindus the impression that it was wrong to defend themselves or to even have an army.   This resulted in Hindus abandoning the political field to non-Hindus, whether those of different religious persuasion, leftists, or merely opportunists. No positive political class was created rooted in a Bharatiya ethos.

Instead Hindus have become more politically passive and political forces have become more and more adharmic as well as anti-Hindu. Should Hindus raise any Dharmic concerns in the political sphere they are attacked as communal by forces themselves aligned with corruption and totalitarianism which are themselves communal and often anti-national.

Should Hindus raise any Dharmic concerns in the political sphere they are attacked as communal by forces themselves aligned with corruption and totalitarianism which are themselves communal and often anti-national. To counter this trend a new Bharatiya Kshatriya class needs to be created using traditional models going back to Lord Rama and Yudhishthira, and reviving the Kshatriya teachings in the Vedas and Mahabharata. The youth must be taught the importance of an authentic Kshatriya, including the need for a good military and police force as means of protecting society. Youths of Kshatriya bent should be honored for their sentiments and given a place within society to function according to Bharatiya values. The Sikhs, originally a Hindu Kshatriya movement, should be reintegrated into Hindu society.
