Can Hindus Self-Govern Competitively?

Lessons from the Nithyananda Scandal-II

 The Christian Church has the longest continuous history of governance, with a tremendous track record of protecting its interests under all circumstances. Its history of corporate governance is not only remarkable amongst religions but also when compared to commercial multinational corporations. Most people are unaware that it was the Church that first invented many of the corporate management procedures, norms and laws in use today by multinational corporations. The Church floated the first commercial multinationals as well, such as the Knights Templar, centuries before the British East India Trading Company and other multinationals emerged using similar methods.

Sandhya Jain and the Global Hindus

Sandhya Jain [1] has been around for a long time, so it is difficult for me to write what I write below. Like many others, I’ve been and hope to continue being an interested reader of her pieces, which often take up the cudgels for Hindus & Hindu issues in the mainstream media. Her latest one is something else though, where she targets “Global Hindu”[2] along with Swami Dayananda Saraswati, the Acharya Sabha, and others who I’d have thought have the unanimous approval of Hindus & well wishers of Hindus.

That it comes out of some visceral angst seems clearer & clearer as one reads through the article. By the time she is done taking the hatchet to them, it appears that if she had her way, “Global Hindu”, along with the other named ‘bad guys’, would need to be consigned to the dustbin of history. So utterly bad & unredeemable are they to her.

Not knowing her motivations beyond my past impression of her as someone fiercely protective of Hindu interests, people like me are at a loss as to why she’s gone into such a vehement ‘attack mode’ towards other public figures who, to the best of my knowledge, are also very protective of Hindu interests, and have dedicated a good part of their adult lives in trying to provide desperately needed intellectual leadership to us common Hindus, the leaderless “Hindu Sheep” of today.
