My dear hackers! An appeal by Dr.Udaylal Pai
I have launched my first site in 2002 (udaypai dot net). I stored all my articles and stories(scanned material from print media too) in that site. I have been in the field of journalism and writing from 1983. So anybody can guess how many articles and stories that I had in the archives.
The site was hacked and destroyed sometime in 2007, I didn’t know about this until few more months, by that time, the site has gone to some unknown Japanese. All my articles and stories have lost. It was very upsetting and sad situation. Then I rolled out another site – udaypai dot in. But just two articles – “Am I a Hindu” and “Please stop Brahmin bashing” resulted the site hacked and destroyed four times! The hackers claimed that they are from West and Middle-East.
When the hacking happened for the first time, I was really shocked and broken – all my published articles – both print and online that I have collected and scanned have just gone to thin air. That’s what I had as my savings in life. All I had had been disappeared. I felt grief-stricken for some time. But then, I realized, this is a cosmic wish…what can I do about it.
And another thing that would have angered fanatic hackers could be, my stories were lifted and published in various publications which were in-famous for its religious fundamentalist views (This happened without my knowledge)….and that might have put me in the hit list of other religious fundamentalists…so, my humble request to all those who lift the articles in guise of supporting me, please let me know your identity. I am not a fanatic religious follower like you…
One of my friends told me that he has a tech-help who can trace back the hacker and destroy his/her site. I remembered the following story:
Once an old Brahmin went to the river to bathe. There he saw a scorpion struggling in the water. He rescued the scorpion from drowning and lifted it in his palm and started walking toward the bank. No sooner had the scorpion recovered than it stung the old Brahmin on the palm.
In pain, the old Brahmin instinctively flung his hand and the scorpion fell back into the river. As soon as the sadhu regained his composure from the sting, he again lifted the scorpion out of the water. Again, before he could set the scorpion safely on land, the creature stung him.
This went on for several minutes as the sadhu continued to try to save the life of the drowning scorpion and the scorpion continued to sting his saviour’s hand.
A man nearby told him to stop saving the scorpion that kept stinging him. “Are you nuts or what? It will only sting you again. Leave him to his fate. Let it die. Your empathy is of no value to such a creature”
The old brahmin just smiled and somehow saved the scorpion. The the old Brahmin smiled happily. The man asked:” Hey, the scorpion has continued stinging you each and every time you try to carry it to safety. Why didn’t you give up and just let it drown?”
“My dear friend, the scorpion was only following his dharma, his nature. It is the dharma of a scorpion to sting. My dharma is non-violence and save its’ life. He is following his dharma and I am following mine.”
The hacker has a corrupt DNA. This is the real difference. I can trace back my gotra or DNA to more than 3000 years to Vishwamitra or Aghamarshana. I have a tradition.
But hacker doesn’t know from where he has got his DNA. While my ancestors were calculating the distance of various galaxies and planets in the cosmic, his ancestors were crawling in all fours.
His DNA may be traced back to man-eaters or invaders who raped and killed innocents. So, it is not his mistake. He is following his culture, his dharma. And I am following mine. So, I will up the site again and if he wants to hack and destory it again, let him do it. With maliciously corrupt DNA, a hacker cannot think anything else. He is simply doing his dharma. For a pig, the human shit is most tastiest food. Can you change its set of mind?
The foreign invaders killed thousands and thousands of my ancestors – Sarawats – in Kashmir and Gandhara desa-regions-(part of today’s Afghan-Pakistan included) area. There is no sarawat brahmin in these regions now. Can you quote a single incident of a saraswat killing an invader? Let alone killing, any violent act from sarawats?
The brutal and fanatic brabarians from Portugese mercilessly persecuted and killed my forefathers who refused to get converted, in Konkan-Goa. Can you show me a single example of a G.S.Brahmin killing a Portugese?
Non-violence is our culture – this is what the cosmic divine forces had taught us. But a non-evoled human being cannot understand the strength of non-violence. (I remembered the Na’vi cult in the Hollywood film “Avtar”) This is the difference. It may take few more thousands years for them to understand the power of non-violence. But nobody can help it. Can you convince the pig about its delicious food?
I can see a truth as I see the sun. My ancestors taught how to live in tune with nature (surrendering to mother earth and not destroying it) and happiness. All other outsiders directed us so that we stay addicted to non-essential things in life. We are made to believe that enjoyment, pleasure, comfort and facilities are most important things in life, and seriously mistook these things for happiness. Unfortunately, most among us follow them. And forgetting our ancestors.
Please note that, I don’t have to defend our culture, our god or our tradition – it is sanatana dharma. Do you need to protect the sun? Do you have to fight for the existence of the Sun? NO. Sun is an absolute truth. If anybody says sun is not there, you don’t have to argue.
When a man feel insecure about his belief or god, he fights to defend it. You can’t help it. Violence is cowardice. The real strength is non-violence. I understand that belief has nothing to do with the truth.
Yes- I don’t have to resort to any violence, if somebody tells me the Sun is non-existing. My sentiments are not hurt by such comments. For, I know the Sun is there. I am not insecure as I am part of the cosmic. It is an absolute truth. Truth doesn’t need a crusader, it is plain truth.
I don’t think I can transform anybody. Nobody can change the mind-set of a hacker or terrorist. But it is our dharma or duty to inform them, that there is something known as “non-violence”. There is something known as cosmic love. And to experience the cosmic love, one has to come back to essentials in life and stop chasing non-essentials. Anybody is welcome to live like a Brahmin. it is true, at the end both the Barbarian and the Brahmin will die. But with a major difference – in terms of the quality of life and serving the nature.
I will continue telling what I know as truth. I am not promoting any beliefs or any religions. I don’t seek support of any institutionalized commercial groups formed in the name of religion and spirituality. I know there are hundreds of people who think like me. Our culture is safe in their hands and I believe in purity in their DNA.
So dear hackers, I feel sorry – no, not for you, but for your ancestors – those cross-breeded semi-evolved humaniod-like living things. You can be proud on your achievement of the animal DNA in you. Congrats!!!
