Ref : - CASTE PROBLEM IN INDIA
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
"I have a message for the world, which I will deliver without fear and care for the future. To the reformers I will point out that I am a greater reformer than any one of them. They want to reform only little bits. I want root-and-branch reform."
- Swami Vivekananda
SOLUTION OF THE CASTE PROBLEM-4
To the non-Brahmana castes I say, wait, be not in a hurry.
Do not seize every opportunity of fighting the Brahmana, because as I have shown;
you are suffering from your own fault. Who told you to neglect spirituality and Sanskrit learning?
What have you been doing all this time?
Why have you been indifferent?
Why do you now fret and fume because somebody else had more brains,
more energy, more pluck and go than you?
Instead of wasting your energies in vain discussions and quarrels in the newspapers,
instead of fighting and quarreling in your own homes -
which is sinful -
use all your energies in acquiring the culture which the Brahmana has, and the thing is done.
Why do you not become Sanskrit scholars?
Why do you not spend millions to bring Sanskrit education to all the castes of India?
That is the question.
The moment you do these things,
you are equal to the Brahmana!
That is the secret power in India.
The only safety,
I tell you men who belong to the lower castes,
the only way to raise your condition is to study Sanskrit,
and this fighting and writing and frothing against the higher castes is in vain,
it does no good,
and it creates fight and quarrel, and this race,
unfortunately already divided, is going to be divided more and more.
The only way to bring about the leveling of castes is to appropriate the culture,
the education which is the strength of the higher castes.
