Mahatma Gandhi: The dark side.
We all know, mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The Mahatma. The pure soul. The great one who bought us our independence freedom.
But one-sided media isn't just a thing of the modern times. There were a lot of facts and truths about the mahatma that were desperately hid. And yes, this is the man who preached the path of truth I'm talking about.
I'm not sure whether I should stop calling him the mahatma or call him that for the sake of pure irony. While we all read in our textbooks about the saint. We must know that all the truths these sources talked about? They idolised Gandhi. Thought that the very ground he touched was heaven.
And most of them were men. Not just any men. Indian men from the nineteen twenties. And we all know how their views were... um... Compromised.
Let us see what the women have to say and what the mahatma's effects on modern indian society are:
1] Why is sex such a taboo in india even though we wrote the kamasutra?
Thank Gandhi. He did not want anyone to use contraception and saw it as an evil to society. Yeah we owe him the large population too if you think about it. HE called every woman who resorted to contraception a whore. Men were put through similar [but not nearly as that derogatory] insults when they used contraceptives.
Sex was seen as a sin in gandhi's eyes. It was simply not allowed he preached other men to not have sex.
[Source: The guardian's article; women suffer from GAndhi's legacy. ]
2] Rape patterns in india
"Women should be more careful"
"look at her dress, It's like she wants to get raped!"
Yeah, GAndhiji played a role in this too. Once he found out that a young man was abusing two of his follower sexually. He then cut the women's hair publicly claiming that he had 'cleansed the sinner's eyes.' He believed that women were responsible for their rape and must dress and act accordingly. He even went on to brag about this incident several times. Um... dude.
He also claimed that it was okay for fathers to kill of their daughters who had been raped. HE believed women who were raped somehow became less human. This is the trend that shows up as suicide due to shame in young rape victims today.
[Source: The guardian's article; women suffer from GAndhi's legacy. ]
HE unilaterally decided that he was going to swear off sex for the rest of his life without consenting his wife. Wait for it.....
And then for him to 'test' his celibacy, he would often sleep next to naked young women. Including his grand niece! In modern era, this would be called sexual abuse. God knows what his wife felt about this. HE also claimed that his wife, who looked like a "meek-cow" was no longer a challenge to his celibacy.

4] He was racist.
Yes. Racist. Early on in his life, gandhi believed that europeans were the supreme race. And that black were primitive and rowdy and violent. Yes I understand that he mended his ways. But that doesn't make his racist past go away. Some of the things he had written about the black people in his works is so disgusting.
Here are snippets from the book "The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi"
Before Dec. 19, 1894
“A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir.” ~ Vol. I, p. 193
Before May 5, 1895
“In the face, too, of financial operations, the success of which many of their detractors would envy, one fails to understand the agitation which would place the operators in the same category as the half-heathen Native and confine him to Locations, and subject him to the harsher laws by which the Transvaal Kaffir is governed.” ~ Vol. I, pp. 224-225
Before May 5, 1895
“When one reflects that the conception of Brahmanism, with its poetic and mysterious mythology, took its rise in the land of the ‘Coolie trader,’ that in that land 24 centuries ago, the almost divine Buddha taught and practised the glorious doctrine of self-sacrifice, and that it was from the plains and mountains of that weird old country that we have derived the fundamental truths of the very language we speak, one cannot but help regretting that the children of such a race should be treated as equals of the children of black heathendom and outer darkness. Those who, for a few moments, have stayed to converse with the Indian trader have been, perhaps, surprised to find they are speaking to a scholar and a gentleman…. And it is the sons of this Land of light who are despised as Coolies, and treated as Kaffirs.” ~ Vol. I, p. 225
5] HE claimed that the women must stay home and be good wives and mothers.
Despite what the history texts tell you, while he allowed women to protest in the end, he didn't do it because his views had changed.
It was mostly the pressure from the younger members of the congress that made him allow women join the movement.
You know who else said the exact same thing about women being people of the house and hearth? Adolf Hitler. Only difference was, hitler wanted the women too to be educated, just radically different syllabuses.

Now, Gandhi did try to change his previous statements and policies about women. He really did try to turn it around in his final years. I would also like to point out that these views were already formed and accepted in the minds of many indians even before GAndhiji. But him propagating them publicly made things more acceptable. Honorable even. But by the time he did changed his views, the damage to society had already been done.
We now face millions of taboos based on sex everyday. It is still a patriarchal society, here in india. The gender equity in India is one of the lowest in the world.
In many ways Gandhi was a real saviour to India. He was indeed one of the main reasons India gained freedom. And it was great of him to promote non violence. Most of his ideals and later works on honesty move me and a billion other people across the globe.
What I am trying to convey through this blog is that why portray him as a saint? A messiah? Why hide his mistakes? Why hide his true self? Why call him a Mahatma?
I think this flawed version of Gandhi is the truth the world deserves. Let the people decide if he was a saint or a sinner after knowing the whole truth. Each person is entitled to the truth. And that is what Gandhiji himself believed.
The Veil and Burka; what could be behind! Naturally some women. In my country mostly the local folk of the village wear big clothes on their head and cover their face with a veil, before I thought we are behind and not a modern country. I used to feel that I am living in a village, and a very backward class, but I saw that the Gulf countries too cover their faces, and with a huge gown like cloths. It is tradition to cover the face, and the amazing issue shocked me that it is compulsory too, if some not wear the Burka, the woman gets punishment too, and neglected from the society.
Alike, in India too, in villages if the woman does not cover their face with veil, she has to get punishment and neglection too. Although this is different that veil is the symbol of respect, to the older peoples the woman is supposed to cover the face with veil. But here the amazing fact is that when the girl gets married than only in her husband's home the girl has to veil. Although much I dont aware, but as i seen in the Muslim countries mostly woman use to wear the Burka.
But what truly affects the scientific fact of the Burka and Veil, are that if some women cover their face, they can keep beauty of their face, and dust never can get touched. In the Veil they hide the Beautiful face, so others' eyes don't catch them.
If I go to criticise the Burka and the Veil traditions, the weak point is that any can pretend to be behind the Burak and Veil, but we have to believe the facts of the customs.

Low Cut-Off Marks For Varsity Admission Won’t Affect Quality Of Graduates, Professor Says
The immediate past President of Chartered Institute of Banker of Nigeria (CIBN), Professor Segun Ajibola, says the reduction in the cut-off marks for admissions into tertiary institutions by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board will not affect the quality of the country's graduates.
JAMB had recently announced 160 as the cut-off mark for admission into Nigerian universities for the 2020/2021 academic session, 120 for polytechnics while the minimum benchmark for colleges of education and other innovative institutions was put at 100.
In an interview with SaharaReporters, the professor described the move as a good one saying the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination should not be used to judge how students would perform in tertiary institutions.
He added that the reduction would create rooms for many students to be admitted into universities and other institutions in the country.
He said: "Cut-off marks, at times, is an indication of your capacity and it is not all. We have seen people who got very low marks at JAMB and got to university and excelled and vice versa.
"I think what JAMB is doing is to provide an opportunity for as many as possible and as much as the universities, polytechnics and colleges of education have the capacity.
"We have so much of the population coming out of secondary schools, many of them are seeking to go to higher institutions.
"For whatever reason or the other, they may not score high marks in the JAMB exam, that does not mean they will not do well when they get to higher institutions."
Commenting on the quality of education in the country, Prof Ajibola urged tertiary institutions to improve the quality of education they dispense to students.
"The quality resides in the universities, polytechnics and colleges of education not in what score you made in UTME," he added.

They said that the deceased left no suicide note behind to explain the cause of his action. Some of his neighbours claimed that the deceased had been sick for close to two weeks without any medical care.

Vulcanizer Arrested In Ogun For Stealing Female Customer’s Pants
Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 22-year-old vulcanizer, Dele Ope, for allegedly stealing a pair of pants belonging to a female customer.
Ope had gone to render a home service to the customer on Sunday when he stole the pants.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.
Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a report by the woman at the Warewa Division in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
The PPRO added that the complainant reported that she had called Ope to help fix her car’s deflated tyre.
According to her, after the vulcanizer had fixed the tyre and left, she discovered that her pair of pants spread on a line in the compound was missing.
“Since the vulcanizer was the only person, who came into the compound, she went round in search of him, but he was nowhere to be found,” the PPRO stated.
Oyeyemi said the Divisional Police Officer, Warewa Division, SP Folake Afeniforo, after receiving the report, detailed detectives to trace and arrest the suspect.
He added, “His house was quickly searched and the woman’s pair of pants was recovered there.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to stealing the pair of pants with the intention of taking it to a herbalist for money rituals.”
Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police in the state, Kenneth Ebrimson, had ordered that the suspect be charged as soon as investigation was concluded.
