Experience of Staunch Hindu who opposes religious text on cloth !

On 17th August 2006, I was traveling by a local train bound for Churchgate. The train reached Andheri station where a young lady got in. She was wearing a top on which ‘Om’ was written. As I realized, it amounted to mockery, I decided to make her aware and prayed to God to give me strength to be able to explain to her properly.

Thereafter, I started explaining to her about how it is a ridicule of ‘mantras’ when it is written on the dress. I also told her that how it was improper to wear such dress during menstruation. That lady told me that nobody had given her such information so far, then how was I telling her. I told her that all Hindus are lifeless so nobody feels anything even when our deities are ridiculed. In fact, they do not even realize that it is a mockery of our deities. But I am a member of Hindu Jana-jagruti Samiti and it is a part of my spiritual practice to stop such denigration. Later, I came to know that she was a correspondent of ‘Lokjagar’. She was traveling barefoot as it was the month of ‘Shravan’ and to develop more closeness with God, she was wearing that top. But she agreed with what I had explained to her and promised me that she would not wear that top again. She also agreed to make people wearing such clothes aware about the science. She even suggested that we can approach followers of �Hare Rama hare Krishna’ sect who wear clothes with deities’ names written on them and explain to them.

Other ladies traveling in the same compartment were listening to our conversation and later asked their doubts like whether they can wear lockets with deities’ photographs. I got an opportunity to clarify their doubts. – Mrs. Alaka Satchidanand Koli, Kandivali, Mumbai
