औपनिवेशिक संस्कृति का विरोध कहा जा रहा है वह न्याय व बंधुत्व पर आधारित संस्कृति का विरोध है

- राम पुनियानी*  हाल (22 जनवरी 2024) में अयोध्या के राममंदिर में प्राण-प्रतिष्ठा के अवसर पर अत्यंत भव्य समारोह आयोजित किया गया. इसके साथ ही देश के अन्य हिस्सों, विशेषकर उत्तर भारत, में धार्मिकता के सामूहिक प्रदर्शन हुए. इस अवसर पर हमने देखा कि राजनैतिक सत्ता और धार्मिक सत्ता दोनों मानों प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी में केन्द्रित हो गईं. अयोध्या के बाद मोदी ने अबू धाबी में एक बड़े मंदिर (श्री स्वामीनारायण) का उद्घाटन किया. इस अवसर पर भी जमकर जश्न मनाया गया और इसका खूब प्रचार-प्रसार हुआ. और अभी कुछ दिन पहले मोदी ने उत्तर प्रदेश में कल्कि धाम मंदिर का शिलान्यास किया. मंदिरों से जुड़े इन उत्सवों की श्रृंखला से प्रभावित कई दक्षिणपंथी चिन्तक दावा कर रहे हैं कि मोदी पहले ऐसे राजनेता हैं जो किसी उत्तर-औपनिवेशिक समाज की संस्कृति का वि-उपनिवेशीकरण कर रहे हैं.  उपनिवेशवाद का दक्षिण एशिया पर क्या प्रभाव पड़ा? दक्षिण एशिया का समाज मूलतः सामंती था जहाँ जमींदार और राजा शासन करते थे और पुरोहित वर्ग उनके राज को उचित बताता था. ब्रिटेन दक्षिण एशिया के अधिकांश हिस्से, विशेषकर भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप, को अपना उपनिवेश

India may be fastest growing economy, but it is one of the most unequal countries

By Vikas Parasram Meshram  The economic disparity gap continues to widen with economic disparity.  A large portion of the population is dispossessed, while the poor continue to get poorer. They struggle to earn a minimum wage and access quality education and health care, suffering disinvestment from persistently low incomes. These widening gaps and growing inequalities have the greatest impact on women and children.  The Oxfam International report is known to have expressed concern that, on the one hand, the wealth of some people in the world is increasing at a rocket speed.  And the number of rich people is constantly increasing. As a result, the income of the common man is increasing very little, while the wealth of the rich class has increased manifold.  Not only in India but in many other countries of the world, the gap of economic inequality is continuously widening. Oxfam International in its annual report on economic inequality at the World Economic Forum meeting last month, sai

देशव्यापी ग्रामीण भारत बंध में उतरे मध्य प्रदेश के आदिवासी, किया केंद्र सरकार का विरोध

- हरसिंग जमरे, भिखला सोलंकी, रतन अलावे*  15 और 16 फरवरी को निमाड के बड़वानी, खरगोन और बुरहानपुर में जागृत आदिवासी दलित संगठन के नेतृत्व में आदिवासी महिला-पुरुषों ग्रामीण भारत बंद में रैली एवं विरोध प्रदर्शन किया । प्रधान मंत्री द्वारा 2014 में फसलों की लागत का डेढ़ गुना भाव देने का वादा किया गया था, 2016 में किसानों की आय दुगना करने का वादा किया गया था । आज, फसलों का दाम नहीं बढ़ रहा है, लेकिन खेती में खर्च बढ़ता जा रहा है! खाद, बीज और दवाइयों का दाम, तीन-चार गुना बढ़ चुका है! किसानों को लागत का डेढ़ गुना भाव देने के बजाए, खेती को कंपनियों के हवाले करने के लिए 3 काले कृषि कानून लाए गए । 3 काले कानून वापस लेते समय प्रधान मंत्री ने फिर वादा किया था कि फसलों की लागत का डेढ़ गुना भाव की कानूनी गारंटी के लिए कानून बनाएँगे, लेकिन वो भी झूठ निकला! आज जब देश के किसान दिल्ली में आपको अपना वादा याद दिलाने आए है, तब आप उनका रास्ता रोक रहें है, उनके साथ मारपीट कर उन पर आँसू गैस फेंक रहें हैं, उन पर छर्रों से फायरिंग कर रहें है! देश को खिलाने वाला किसान खुद भूखा रहे, क्या यही विकास है?

Netanyahu's safe pessage? There is no place for the Palestinians of Gaza to go

By Vijay Prashad  On February 9, 2024, Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his army would advance into Rafah, the last remaining city in Gaza not occupied by the Israelis. Most of the 2.3 million Palestinians who live in Gaza had fled to its southern border with Egypt after being told by the Israelis on October 13, 2023, that the north had to be abandoned and that the south would be a “safe zone.” As the Palestinians from the north, particularly from Gaza City, began their march south—often on foot—they were attacked by Israeli forces, who gave them no safe passage. The Israelis said that anything south of Wadi Gaza, which divides the narrow strip, would be safe, but then as the Palestinians moved into Deir-al-Balah, Khan Younis, and Rafah, they found the Israeli jets following them and the Israeli troops coming after them. Now, Netanyahu has said that his forces will enter Rafah to combat Hamas. On February 11, Netanyahu told NBC news that Israeli would provide “s
