why schools have a greater roll in forming habits and right personality...

If u cant read the meaning of the letter of Yugrajji then I need not even attempt to explain. 
Man is known by the company he keeps. And to get a right company a school with a difference is required as most part of innocent  young minds r spent in a school and that is where if atmosphere is different then development is different. 

In ancient times children were not allowed to be influenced by parents or neighbour so they were sent to Gurukul and they developed a unbiased personality. Presently the schools are giving an environment where rich and influential get different treatment, where sanskar is fogotten, eating habits r not as per Jainism , personality is developed to compete and not to be a good human.....and so on.....but wasted ur and my time .....bye .... 

Thanks and Regards,

Dear Tholiya ji,

Jai Jinendra,

I was in Podar (santacruz),

The moot point here is the moral and values instilled and regularly demonstrated by the parents & relatives and the community in which the the child lives. We as a community owe a lot to the new generation. Just by pointing our fingers at Schools (could be a convent) we cant shun our responsibilities. As you are also aware, you can have some schools in some areas but we cant have all schools built by jain and which propagate Jainsm. That could be a near to immpossible task, better and easier way is to teach our kids at home and in community. I am not aware of other sects but in some of the shwtambar sects samaj operates special classes which impart knowledge about religion. Further, we must keep good books at home so that kids are inspired to read them. We can also launch CD roms, DVDs and comics on religion and morals. I am sure, if kids read good stuff they will imbibe the good values in them.

I do not completely agree with him. Schools are built to impart knowledge of subjects like maths, science, history etc. They do very little to instill culture and religion. Being a secular state, schools are not suppose to impart religious knowledge as students of all religion do attend the same and its very difficult to teach religion. However, schools do teach good things said by all religious leaders. To sow the seed of jainism or for that matter any religion is basic responsibility of parents, relatives, community and dharmagurus. We must teach our kids to read learn and understand all religions. On attining right age he will be able to find his own path. You would agree that we cant force anything on new generation kids.
We are also undermining the influence of media and information network also known as internet. Kids are getting all sorts of information from internet, some are use full and some are not. However, it would be difficult to stop that as it has become essential part of life and with advent of mobile phones it has become even more difficult to police what kind of information the kids are accessing from web.
I am a ardent believer of jainism and i am sure jainism has the power to retain its glory. I have no doubt in saying that jainism is the right way of living and only jainism has solution for all kinds of problems we are facing in present world. There is no danger to jainism and any ways we as a ordinary human beings cant do much to save it except for following it in true sense.

Various sects of jainism believe in building temples and there are religious as well as non religious reasons for having such a large number of temples or derasars. Building of school and college has nothing to do with building of temples as you are also well aware that many people who donate in name of temple will not even pay a single penny for building of school. Further, running of schools requires a professional setup and is governed by regulations made by the statute.

As a follower of jainism it is our primary duty to follow the religion in true spirit and make our children understand that they are reallly fortunate to have born as a janmana jain. They will become real jain only if they follow the lifestyle of jainism.

I would therefore request that we stop complaining and start living like a true jain. Probably, this would guide our kids to learn and understand the right things incl religion.

Hope, I have not hurt sentiments of any one.

Jai jinendra.

With regards,

Respected Sir
Find the attached file for your information.

Yugraj Jain

...if I were to be murdered ........

  1. Albert Camus (1913–1960), French-Algerian philosopher, author. "State Terrorism and Rational Terror," pt. 3, The Rebel (1951, trans. 1953).      Albert Camus said:
More and more, revolution has found itself delivered into the hands of its bureaucrats and doctrinaires on the one hand, and to the enfeebled and bewildered masses on the other.

    2. Quotation by Harold Bloom
Harold Bloom said :
I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike—and I don't think there really is a distinction between the two—are always dominated by fools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be liked.
Harold Bloom (b. 1930), U.S. literary critic, theorist. Interview, Criticism in Society, ed. Imre Salusinski (1987).

Is it our job to judge? The gendarme, policemen and bureaucrats have been especially prepared by fate for that job. Our job is to write, and only to write. 

Helen Prejean (b. 1940), U.S. nun and activist against the death penalty. Dead Man Walking, ch. 1 (1993).

...if I were to be murdered I would not want my murderer executed. I would not want my death avenged. Especially by government—which can't be trusted to control its own bureaucrats or collect taxes equitably or fill a pothole, much less decide which of its citizens to kill.

so take charge and not just wish happy new ....

Thanks to all of you ( in BCC) who have sent me new year wishes by mail / sms . But most part of our life is controlled by govt. and since there is no change in their attitude this year like my past years too will be heading bad to worst. Only hope was LOKPAL bill but the common-men,juniors in govt, military, police,poor,students,women , down trodden have failed to pressurize adamant politicians to pass same and have chosen to continue to suffer and chosen to make top politicians, bureaucrats,unethical capitalists owner of scam booty of thousands of crores stacked in Swiss bank etc.etc.. 

So no hope. Your and my wishes are like building castle in the air by chanting mantras. No for having a happy new year we have to come out from our shell and rise to check the corruption, delay, harassment and scams.  

To give better future : 
  1. Demand strong Lokpal  
  2. Final order by SIC/CIC in RTI case with in 15days.
  3. Revamping of judiciary with FIFO method ( today influential corrupt advocates are able to see that their own cases r dealt with in few years but cases filed by opponents/ or which ones will go against them are not seeing light of day for decades.
  4. Educate common-men how they will benefit when Swiss money is brought back. Make a dream plan and show them on TV and create hope for better life. 
  5. Ensure honest,well settled in life with no criminal background candidates contest and win and see that govt gives proper exposure to all candidates and no priveate funds are used to rig the elections. 
If wishes were horses take charge and not just wish happy new ....

 and Regards,
Alok Tholiya,
