The system I am talking about is before invaders set their foot on this soil. To maintain the peace, this group of Vedic Gurus developed such a system for the society, social structure, social governance which decentralized the ruling system. The governing structure starts with ‘RAJA’ a king. He gave authority to selected few of his faithful known as ‘Sardar’ whose responsibilities resembles a governor to govern a limited area of land and called it ‘Praant’ knows as State followed by a district governed by a Collector followed by ‘Taluka’ having a ‘Mamaledar’ followed by a Town ship controlled by a Mayor under him villages having ‘Surpanch’. All this had demarcated boundaries to have better control and communication. Even today the same system is in practice for every state.
A village was self sufficient, it had one or more temple to cater spiritual and educational needs of that village. There were one or more ‘Joytishi’, calculating the planet positions and the effects on every individual, weather conditions and informing the people like early warning system. There were ‘Vaidya’ herbal medicine practitioner, using locally grown herbs to prevent epidemics and cure individuals, advising people about dietary habits. There were others like Carpenters, Blacksmith, Meson etc. Such craftsmen and professionals were exchanging their services with food and daily necessities. If there was a case of injustice elderly and experienced people were trying to resolve that case as a big family. Good example of village culture could be seen during the early western culture especially in Ranches of the Wild West popularized through American movies.
This thinking which was non-existent in the rest of the world at that time along with scarcity of many things and food habits affected the powerful people leading to aggressive intent towards the rest of the world. These people became invaders, they made their own religion and decided a Prophet. These invaders use their religion as a tool to invade rest of the world. They portray as if God has given them the authority to spread their religion and destroy those who do not follow their ideology. These effects have also been witnessed in cultures like Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and Arabs.
Best example is seen in Iran (formerly Persia), the Arabs invaded Iran and manipulated every thing which Iranians considered as ideals, burnt books respected by them, destroyed monuments and the religion of Zoroastrians. Invaders changed their language, life style and rituals. Same invaders came through Afghanistan to Bharat. During the invasions they killed millions of Hindus in the mountain ranges of Hindukush – which originates from the word “Hindu Koshte” which literally means brutal killing or carnage of Hindus. In reality there is no such religion called as Hindu, just see the meaning and observe the disrespect given by others and our own so called Indians.
Furthermore, a Persian dictionary titled Lughet-e-Kishwari, published in Lucknow in 1964, gives the meaning of the word Hindu as “chore [thief], dakoo [dacoit], raahzan [waylayer], and ghulam [slave].” In another dictionary, Urdu-Feroze-ul-Laghat (Part One, p. 615) the Persian meaning of the word Hindu is further described as barda (obedient servant), sia faam (black color) and kaalaa (black). So these are all derogatory expressions for the translation of the term hindu in the Persian label of the people of India.
During the Mughal regime of 700 years in this land called Bharat, the Muslim invaders destroyed every thing that the so called Hindusconsidered sacred, respected and worshiped. Then came Christian missionaries as traders and disturbed the whole fabric of so called Hindu society, education and culture.
The following excerpts was shared from this link
“In 1835, Thomas Macaulay articulated the goals of British colonial imperialism most succinctly: “We must do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, a class of people who are Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, words and intellect.” As the architect of Colonial Britain’s Educational Policy in India, Thomas Macaulay was to set the tone for what educated Indians were going to learn about themselves, their civilization, and their view of Britain and the world around them. An arch-racist, Thomas Macaulay had nothing but scornful disdain for Indian history and civilization.”
