Vedo Me Rajneet : Part 1 of 3
While I was browsing Islamic Articles online, I came through a most horrifying, sadistic, cruel article on Non-Muslims. I didn’t expect an alleged god (Allah) to be that cruel and sadistic, as his revealed book and words of his holy Prophet suggests. Below I’ll quote the article, with my comments as explanation. The article is taken from ARAB News:
AS Hell has various levels, in some of which the torment and horror is greater than in others, so the people of Hell will be given different levels of punishment. According to a Hadith narrated by Muslim and Ahmad from Samurah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said concerning the people of Hell: “There are some whom the Fire will take up to their ankles, others up to their knees, others up to their waists, and others up to their collarbones.”
According to another report, “up to their necks” (Muslim in Kitab Al-Jannah wa Sifaat Na’imiha, Baab Shiddat Harr an-Naar, 4/2185) [ARTICLE]
Are we sure, that these words are from Holy Prophet of most merciful god? It doesn’t seems so, because all it talks about burning Non-Muslims, and tormenting them, just because they didn’t believe in an imaginary god, when they were alive? I would also like to draw the attention of readers, that it is not our deeds, which determine whether we Non-Muslim (Kafirs) will be in hell or heaven. Its Allah’s prerogative to send anyone to hell or heaven. In this connection, Prophet Muhammad himself said, in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 473 :
“There is none among you, and no created soul but has his place written for him either in Paradise or in the Hell-Fire, and also has his happy or miserable fate (in the Hereafter) written for him.”
If we need to believe on this Hadith, then for sure, Allah is the most merciless & brutal god, who first predetermine the fate and then punishes the Non-Muslims. This is just beginning, let’s see what more Non-Muslims will face in hell of Islam.
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) has told us about those who will receive the lightest punishment in Hell. Al-Bukhari reports from Al-Nu’maan ibn Bashir who said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say, ‘The person who will have the least punishment among the people of Hell on the Day of Resurrection will be a man under the arch of whose feet will be placed a smoldering ember, and his brains will boil because of it’. [ARTICLE]
I am amazed to read that the least punishment in Allah’s sadistic torment house will be a man with burning feet & boiling brain. When we are talking of fire, I’ll not forget that the fire in Islamic hell is not the same which we usually see & feel. Because the merciful prophet said, “The Hell Fire is 69 times hotter than ordinary worldly fires.’ So someone said, ‘Allah’s Apostle, wouldn’t this ordinary fire have been sufficient to torture the unbelievers?” [Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 487]. Now we are getting little idea of Islamic hell, which is prepared by merciless, barbaric Allah to torture those who chose not to believe in his pseudo-scientific, illogical, violent rant. Below is the list of some extremely violent, inhumane, barbaric list of punishment, with reference from authentic scriptures of Islam, which will be given to Non-Believers of Islam.
Roasting of the skin
The Fire of the Almighty will burn the skin of the infidels. The skin is the site of sensation, where the pain of burning is felt, and for this reason, Allah Almighty will replace the burned skin with a new one, to be burned anew, and this will be repeated endlessly: “Those who reject Our Signs, We shall soon cast them into the Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the penalty. For Allah is Exalted in Power, All-Wise.” (Qur’an, 4:56)
One of the kinds of torment will be the pouring of Al-Hamim over their heads. Al-Hamim is ultra-heated water; because of its extreme heat, it will melt their innards and everything inside: “… then as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling water will be poured down over their heads. With it will melt or vanish away what is within their bellies, as well as skins.” (Qur’an, 22:19-20)
At-Tirmidhi reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Al-Hamim will be poured on their heads and will dissolve through until it reaches their sides and all their innards will drop out, until it comes out of his feet, and everything is melted, then he will be restored as he was.” He (At-Tirmidhi) said, “It is a sahih ghareeb hasan Hadith.” (At-Takhweef min An-Naar, p.145, Jaami’ Al-Usool, 10/540)
Scorching (the face)
The noblest and most dignified part of a person is the face, hence the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade us to strike the face. One of the ways in which Allah Almighty will humiliate the people of Hell is by gathering them on their faces, blind, deaf and dumb, on the Day of Resurrection: “…We shall gather them together prone on their faces, blind, dumb, and deaf; their abode will be Hell; every time it shows abatement, We shall increase for them the Fierceness of the Fire.” (Qur’an, 17:97)
Then they will be thrown on their faces in the Fire: “And if any do evil, their faces will be thrown headlong into the Fire: “Do you receive a reward other than that which you have earned by your deeds?” (Qur’an, 27:90)
The Fire will burn and cover their faces forever, with no barrier between them and it: “If only the unbelievers knew when they will not be able to ward off the Fire from their faces, nor yet from their backs, and no help can reach them!” (Qur’an, 21:39)
“The Fire will burn their faces and they will therein grin, with their lips displaced.” (Qur’an, 23:104)
“Their garments of liquid pitch, and their faces covered with fire.” (Qur’an, 14:50)
“Is then one who has to fear the brunt of the penalty on the Day of Judgement his face?” (Qur’an, 39:24)
Look at this horrific scene that makes one shudder!
“The Day that their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire, they will say, “Woe to us! Would that we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger.” (Qur’an, 33:66)
Do you not see that just as meat and fish are turned over when they are cooked, so their faces will be turned over in the Fire of Hell. We seek refuge with Allah Almighty from the punishment of the people of Hell.
Another of the painful torments that the infidels will suffer is being dragged on their faces into Hell: “Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind, and mad. The Day they will be dragged through the Fire on their faces: “Taste the touch of Hell.” (Qur’an, 54:47-48)
Their pain at being dragged will be increased by the fact that they will be tied up in chains and fetters: “…But soon shall they know, when the yokes round their necks, and the chains, they shall be dragged along, in the boiling fetid fluid, then shall they be burned.” (Qur’an, 40:70-72)
Qatadah said, “They will be dragged once in the Fire, and once in Al-Hamim.” (Ibn Rajab, at-Takhweef min an-Naar, p.147)
Blackening of the faces
Allah Almighty will blacken the faces of the people of Hell in the Hereafter: “On the Day when some faces will be white and some faces will be black; to those who faces will be black: “Did you reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the Penalty for rejecting Faith.” (Qur’an, 3:106)
This is intense blackness, as if the darkness of night had covered their faces
“But those who have earned evil will have a reward of like evil, and ignominy will cover their faces. No defender will they have from Allah. Their faces will be covered, as it were, with pieces from the darkness of night. They are Companions of the Fire, they will abide therein [for aye!] (Qur’an, 10:27) [ARTICLE]
After reading these verses from Quran, and sayings of Muhammad, I don’t believe any sane, rational mind, will call Islam a religion of peace, or Allah the Most Merciful Lord of universe as Muslims say. These verses are evil & demonic, and it appears that these verses are written by the most demonic & sadistic man ever to live on face of Earth. I want to leave readers with choice, either they want to live a life-like hell with so-called peaceful Muslims like Osama Bin Laden & Hafiz Syed, or they want to eradicate this cancer called Islam.

Rig Veda Book 1 Hymn 22
देवता: ;1-4 अश्विनौ, 5-8 सविता, 9-10 अग्नि,11 देव्य: , 12 इंद्राणीवरुणान्यग्नाय्य:, 13-14 द्यावापृथिव्यौ:, 15 पृथिवी:, 16 विष्णुदेवो वा: ,17-21 विष्णुश्च देवता:.
प्रात: काल से दैनिक जीवन क्रम
1. प्रातर्युजा वि बोधयाश्विनावेह गच्छताम | अस्य सोमस्य पीतये || ऋ1.22.1
The अश्विनौ Ashvinou twins – प्राण अपान inhale and exhale- i.e. our breathing, both work in tandem all the time . But when the sun rises in the morning it is our duty to engage सोम Soma (our intellect) to make a start of the day with fruitful actions for intelligent and effective operations of our duties. Only when Soma gets involved with the twin of अश्विनौ Ashvinau पृथ्वी अग्नि in life, useful and desired results emerge.
(Soma is the software for operating the system of the hardware that is physical world.) For every physical activity as well as technological activity, an intelligent operating system is needed. Even the operation of the sun, modern science tells, it is a fusion nuclear reaction technology that operates it . It is referred as आदित्य:सोम:. Sun operates by Soma. To be empowered, one needs the ability to reach from one place/stage to other . Here Ashwin twin Dewtas would represent the involvement of inputs of knowledge, science and technologies along with actions to move on the desired right path to achieve wellbeing of all. Again all systems in their dynamic equilibrium depend on balancing of two polar forces. In science South Pole North Pole of magnetic phenomenon are the bases of entire electromagnetic systems of negative and positive electricity. In solar system the cycle of day and night (twins) balances the life. In family unit the twin of husband and wife stabilizes the system of progeny growth. This system of twins of polar forces is called अश्विनौ देवता Ashwinou Devta in Vedic terminology.
2. या सुरथा रथीतमोभा देवा दिविस्पृशा | अश्विना ता हवामहे || ऋ1.22.2
With dawn of the day when daylight touches here, it clears our path and vision to make our way to progress in life. For making progress by getting from one place to other along the twins of clear vision to apply ourselves with energy to the elements of air space and waters.
(देव पूजा, संगतिकरण ,दान)
3. या वां कशा मधुमत्यश्विना सूनृतावती | तया यज्ञं मिमिक्षतम || ऋ1.22.3
For making progress by development of these technological achievements there will be need for cooperative activities of yajna यज्ञ communication skills of discussions and education. Yajna यज्ञ involves देव पूजा , संगति करण, दान. These can be described as showing regard for elders, loving cooperative behavior with contemporaries and being charitably disposed towards underprivileged. This of course involves the cultivation of अश्विनौ Ashwinou the twins of pleasant speech and ability to listen.
4. नहि वामस्ति दूरके यत्रा रथेन गच्छथः | अश्विना सोमिनो गृहम || ऋ1.22.4
Being empowered with such twins, the Ashwinou, no goals in life are far away to seek.
सविता देवता- सविता वै प्रसविता ; कौo 6.14
5. हिरण्यपाणिमूतये सवितारमुप ह्वये | स चेत्ता देवतापदम् || ऋ1.22.5
Savita Dev is the name given to the phenomenon of creation of the Almighty of entire physical creation, riches and wealth and by friendly and cooperative involvement of all living and physical substances.
6. अपां नपातमवसे सवितारमुप स्तुहि | तस्य व्रतान्युश्मसि || ऋ1.22.6
Savita Dev enables that in nature nothing is wasted by efforts & pursuits. By positive actions newer bounties emerge out of apparently naturally occurring wasting degradation phenomenon.
(Examples can be recycling of waste in to soil, while still extracting biogas energy from it. Electricity/ energy from waters going down to waste in falls,and using that water in irrigation also.)
7. विभक्तारं हवामहे वसोश्चित्रस्य राधसः | सवितारं नृचक्षसम || ऋ1.22.7
Natural products of different categories /class are utilized in producing most praiseworthy valuable products. Develop insights to visualize, how to allocate various resources for obtaining value from them.
8. सखाय आ नि षीदत सविता स्तोम्यो नु नः | दाता राधांसि शुम्भति ||ऋ1.22.8
All men should engage in environment friendly and community interest cooperative activities to generate and harness Savita Dev’s immense bounties of wealth.
9. अग्ने पत्नीरिहा वह देवानामुशतीरुप | त्वष्टारं सोमपीतये || ऋ1.22.9
Fire in its physical manifestations as different forms of energy, solar energy, heat of combustion, force of explosion etc, offers immense opportunities for application of scientific wisdom and technologies to bring welfare for progress of mankind. This is similar to a wife to giving birth and raising good progeny for progress of the world. .
10. आ ग्ना अग्न इहावसे होत्रां यविष्ठ भारतीम् | वरूत्रीं धिषणां वह || ऋ1.22.10
Individual, engages all the faculties of Devtas namely Eyes चक्षु , Ears श्रोत्रम , Nose प्राण: , Mouth वाक for perception, observation , speech communication with his intellect बुद्धि and motivations चित्त In life for his pursuit of protection and survival the progress by seeking to remove the impediments to his progress in a similar manner as an Yajna Agnihotra sanitizes the environment and brings cheer to all. (Yajna is defined as देवपूजा , संगतिकरण, दान by being the best of actions-यज्ञो वै श्रेष्ठतकर्मण: )
देव्यः देवता- Role of women
अभी नो देवीरवसा महः शर्मणा नृपत्नीः | अच्छिन्नपत्राः सचन्ताम || ऋ1.22.11
Females in society provide the peace and comforting ambience by their constant undiminished contribution as facilitators of positive activities.
No IPR (Intellectual property rights) Vedic Socialism
12. इहेन्द्राणीमुप हवये वरुणानीं स्वस्तये | अग्नायीं सोमपीतये || ऋ 1.22.12
Share freely with all the intellectual bounties that bring joy and wealth सोमपीतये Sompiitaye like the Nature’s universally freely available bounties of Sun, Air, Water and Fire.( In Vedic tradition knowledge is to be freely shared with all. Most famous recent example is that of Sir J.C. Bose the inventor of wireless in the modern world. Madam Annie Besant wanted to file a patent in name of Bose as inventor of Wireless. Bose in consultation with Robindra Nath Tagore is said to have refused to give his consent to patenting his achievement, by saying that knowledge was not for concealing but for being made universally available for welfare and progress of mankind.)
पोषण में तरल रस आदि विषय
द्यौः पृथिवीः देवता
13. मही दयौः पृथिवी च न इमं यज्ञं मिमिक्षताम | पिपृता नो भरीमभिः || ऋ1.22.13
There are two macro and micro levels for interpretation of this mantra.
1. At macro level the vast bounties of bright sun shine and light above the horizon as also the vast resource of dark matter the earth below the horizon fulfill man’s desires for comfort by यज्ञ Yajna knowledge backed activity .
2. At micro level द्युलोक Dulok corresponds to our intellectually motivated mind – wisdom and मही पृथिवी Mahi Prithiwee to the adorable healthy physical body. These two when acting together bring comfort and happiness.
महान द्यौ और पृथ्वी हमारे इस यज्ञ – जीवन यापन को उत्तम पोषणों द्वारा पूर्ण करने के लिए उत्तम रसादि पदार्थों की व्यवस्था करें. अथवा हम अपने मस्तिष्क और अन्नमय कोष के सदुपयोग से सुखी जीवन प्राप्त करें .

14. तयोरिद घृतवत पयो विप्रा रिहन्ति धीतिभिः | गन्धर्वस्य ध्रुवे पदे || ऋ1.22.14
(As an example) To ensure continuous normal working of human heart, wise men know that care has to be exercised while consuming milk fats and fat bearing product .
(गां वेदवाचं धरति) गंधर्व वह है जो वेद वाणी धारण करता है अर्थात बुद्धिमान होता है. मानव शरीर में हृदय की धड़कन के शब्द को ‘गंधर्व का ध्रुवपद’ कहते हैं . ह्रदय की धड़कन को बनाए रखने के लिए विद्वत्जन गोदुग्ध में घृत तथा घृतयुक्त पदार्थं का सेवन सावधानी से करते हैं.
उत्तम भूमि विषय
15. स्योना पृथिवि भवानृक्षरा निवेशनी | यच्छा नः शर्म सप्रथः || ऋ1.22.15
Clear the waste lands to be free of weeds ,uniform level surface and made fit for habitation, and sustain life.
हे पृथिवी ! हमारे निवास में विस्तृत सुख देने के लिए कण्टक रहित हो. ( ऊबड खाबड न हो )
16. अतो देवा अवन्तु नो यतो विष्णुर्विचक्रमे | पृथिव्याः सप्तधामभिः || ऋ1.22.16
When knowledge about attributes – laws and properties- of all the seven physical manifestations of Nature viz. Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Universe, Atoms and Structure of matter is learnt (by education and research), the विष्णु: चक्रम् ability to recycle nature’s bounties is established (by sustainable resource utilization ) for welfare of mankind.
जब सातों भौतिक धामों पृथिवी, जल, अग्नि, वायु, विराट्, परमाणु, और प्रकृति कि विद्या का ज्ञान शिक्षा अनुसंधान इत्यादि से प्राप्त किया जाता है, और विष्णु: चक्रम् सब भौतिक पदार्थों का पुन: भिन्न रूप से प्रयोग होता है ( जैसे गोबर से उर्वरकऔर बायोगैस,प्रपातों से गिरते जल से विद्युत,इत्यादि ) तब जीव, मन , शरीर और मस्तिष्क से उन्नति को प्राप्त करता है.
17. इदं विष्णुर्वि चक्रमे त्रेधा नि दधे पदम | समूळ्हमस्य पांसुरे || ऋ1.22.17
Man continuously strives to attain the final blessings in life viz. excellent healthy body, positive mental attitude and sharp intellect by continuously pursuing the path symbolizing the three steps of विष्णु Vishnu i.e. यज्ञ – संगति करण , देवपूजा , दान – Cooperation among all, being God fearing, and sharing with all.
विष्णु के तीन परम पद प्राप्त करने के लिए जीव इस पार्थिव (पांसुरे – धूल से बने ) शरीर से सम्यक कर्त्तव्य करते हुए शरीर को नीरोग, मन को निर्मल और मस्तिष्क को तीव्र बुद्धि वाला बना पाता है .

(विष्णु) वह है जो व्यापक हृदय वाला है. विशाल हृदय ही तो संकोच –अपवित्रता से रहित होता है. (गोपा:) गोपालन से ही (अदाभ्य:) दोनों प्रकार के मानसिक और भौतिक व्याधियों, रोगादि कृमियों से हिंसित नहीं होता. शरीर , पृथ्वी और पर्यावरण नीरोगि और स्वस्थ रहते हैं. जब चित्त , शरीर और पर्यावरण स्वस्थ होते हैं तभी धर्म स्थापित होता है और विष्णु अपने तीन कदम रखता है. विष्णु के तीन कदम क्या हैं?
यज्ञो विष्णु: – यज्ञ ही विष्णु है . विष्णु के अर्थात यज्ञ के तीन कदम क्या हैं ? देवपूजा, संगतिकरण और दान बड़ों का आदर, बराबर वालों से प्रेम तथा छोटों को दया पूर्वक कुछ देना.
Maintain Enterprising spirit
19. विष्णोः कर्माणि पश्यत यतो व्रतानि पस्पशे | इन्द्रस्य युज्यः सखा || ऋ1.22.19
Where enterprising spirit is adopted as a friend, in resolve to reach specific objects, they bring forth desired results – the efforts do not go waste.

FROM VEDIC TO CLASSICAL SANSKRIT (DEVELOPMENT OR DECAY)
Author : Pt Dharmdev Vidyamartand
Three is a word of difference between the Vedic language and the Classical Sanskrit of the epics, sastras, kavyas….. At times the meaning of a word may undergo a sea change !
IN TERMS OF WORDS
The word sachí for instance, is used in the classical Sanskrit for ‘lndra`s wife’, whereas in the Vedic Lexicon Nighantu, it is en-joined for ‘speech, wisdom, action’ (vide Nigh.)-
The words vrtra, asum are used in Sanskrit as the name of a Raksasa (and for ‘raksasa‘ in general), but in Vedic they are two epithets, usually, of ‘cloud’-
The word ‘ahí‘ is used in Sanskrit for serpent, while in Vedic, it stands for cloud again.
The word adri, parvata, giri are used in Sanskrit for mountain, but in Vedic they again denote cloud-
The word ghrta is used in Sanskrit for clariﬁed butter, in Vedic for water-
In Sanskrit, the word visa is used for poison but, according to the Vedic Nighantu, it is one of the many names ofwater-
ln Sanskrit, the Word varaha is used for ‘boar’, but in Vedic it is given for cloud-
In Sankrit asman and gravan are used for stone, but in Vedic they are shown as denoting cloud-
The word dhara is used in Sanskrit for ﬂow or current but in Vedic it is used for speech-
The word ghrtací is used in Sanskrit for dancing girl, but in Vedic it denotes night-
The word gaya is used in Sanskrit for a particular place where oblations are offered, but in the Vedic Nighantu, gaya means progency, wealth, home.
IN TERMS OF GRAMMAR
On the score of grammar, Vedic naturally differs from Classical Sanskrit in extension as well as in depth. Panini’s Astadhyayi refers to this vedic freedom of scope through aphorisms like.
Quite a few among Western linguists and philosophers hold that there has always been a growth, a development and an evolution in language :
T. Burrow, for instance, says in Sanskrit Language, “Many [of the changes of meaning] occured in the natural growth of the language.”
F. Bopp, in Comparative Grammar 0f Sanskrit, Greek, Latin and Other Languages, vol. l, has used the word ‘development’, in this connection; “[Of] language in its Stages of being and march of development.”
A.B. Keith has also opted for the view ‘development’, saying: “From the language of the Rigveda one can trace a steady development to Classical Sanskrit.” (History of Sanskrit Literature.)
Some Indian philologists, too, who have followed Western Writers, have held the same view. For instance : “From the cry and onomatopoeia with their various combinations, by means of association and metaphor, we arrive at a Vocabulary, sufficient for the purpose of the primitive man”…”The small original stock is improved upon and added to by manipulation of various kinds, based upon the association of various kinds, and on metaphor”.
But, when we compare the most ancient Vedic language with the modem Classical Sanskrit, we ﬁnd that, instead of ‘growth’ or ‘development’, there has been ‘decay’.
For instance : (1) in the Vedic Lexicon Nighantu, at 1.2 we find 57 synonyms of vac (speech) like-
Very few of them have survived in classical Sanskrit : Amara Kosa, for instance, gives only the following-
lt is growth or decay ? Let the reader on his own decide.
To give yet another illustration, in Vedic 101 names are listed for ‘water’, including-
But in the Amara Kosa only 27 remain ;
There are 37 names of megha (cloud) in Nighantu, in the Amara Kosa only 15-
Among the 26 names of karma (action, work), including-
-only 2 (karma and karyam) are found in the Amara Kosa.
Many more examples could be given to show how, down the centuries, it has not been a case of growth or development, but rather one of decay in language.
lt is gratifying to note that some distinguished western linguists also are opposed to this theory of growth or evolution in language. We cite four of them :
V. VENDRYES in his book Language observes :
‘Certainly, modern languages, such as English and French, rejoice in an extreme suppleness, ease and flexibility; but [accordingly] can we maintain that the classical tongues, like Greek or Latin, are inferior to [any of these] ? It [Greek] is a language whose very essence is godlike.. If we have once acquired the taste for it, all other languages seem harsh after it… The outward form of the Greek language is itself a delight to the soul. Never was a more beautiful instrument fashioned to express human thought.
WILLIAM JONES : ‘The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure-more perfect than Greek, more copious than Latin, and more exquisitely refined than French or Spanish.’
MAX MULLER : says they have reduced the rich and powerful idiom of the poets of Veda to the meagre and impure jargon of the modem sepoy’.
He adds : “We are accustomed to call these changes ‘growth’ of language, but it would be more appropriate to call this a process of phonetic change or decay. ”
‘On the whole, the history of all the Aryan languages is nothing but a gradual process of decay.’
‘Lecures on the Science of Language, vol.l
And GRAY, lastly, has to say this (Foundations of Language) :
‘In lndo-European, we ﬁnd 8 distinct case-forms in Sanskrit; Greek and Lithuanian have 7, Hittite and Old Church Slavic 5, Old French and Modem English only 2, Albanian 4. And American and Old English 3. This reduction in the number of case-forms-with the result that some of them take over the functions of one or more others-gives rise to the linguistic phrase now known as syncretism. The reason for this seems to be phonetic decay of the characteristic case-endings.’
‘the mother of languages’
VEDIC-THE MOTHER OF ALL LANGUAGES
From the study of many of the historical languages of the world we have been driven to the inevitable conclusion that it is not Classical Sanskrit (which of course is the ﬁrst daughter of the mother), but Vedic, that is the mother of all languages of the world.
A FEW EXAMPLES
1. Vasra-in Vedic and, in its slightly different or corrupt forms, in different languages of the world :
The word [vasra] has been used in the Rigveda on the following occasions-vasra 1O.119.4; vasra’iva 1.33.2, 1.28.8; 2.34.15; 7.149.4; 1.37.11, 1.96.6; 6.7.7, 9.1.37, 10.75.4.
In the other Vedas also the word is used frequently. All commentators of Veda are unanimous in holding that the word is derived from V vasr ‘sabde‘ and stands for cow (lowing, ‘making sound’.
Now, it is to be noted that there is no mention of this word in the Amara Kosa, or in any other lexicon of Sanskrit; nor do we ﬁnd it generally used in the classical literature. Withal, the word is used for `cow’ in the French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian languages in slightly different (corrupt) forms.
ln French it is vache; in Spanish vaen : in Portugese vaca ; and in Italian la vaces. [Also, likewise, in the languages of Europe the words derived from go are used for English cow : Swedish ko ; Danish ko ; Dutch koe ; German kuh].
2. To take another example, we may examine Vedic ‘irman ‘ for ‘arm’.
lt is from this (irman) alone that the word ‘arm’ is derived. With its Swedish, Danish, Dutch and German variants in COD, for Apisali states in his Siksa (as also Bharate in his Natyasatra) that ‘sarva-mukha-sthaniyan a-varnam’ ! agni : ignis (Lat.).
3. Another very common word, which may be mentioned in this connection, is dama. According to Nighantu 3.4, it is a grhanama (home)-
But in Sanskrit literature and in classical lexicons, like the Amarakosa, dama occurs nowhere in the sense of ‘home’ or ‘wife.’
And so we should not be surprised to ﬁnd the word, with slight changes, used in several languages of Europe-English, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, German in the sense of ‘lady’ : dame, dane, dem.
4. mira (ocean) ‘submarine ﬁre’ and also vadavagni ! ; German meer ; French la mer ; Spanish and Portugese mar.
5. apa’ ítí-‘karma’-nama (Nighantu. 2.1) ; opus (Latin), operation (English).
These ﬁve exmples should sufﬁce to show that Vedic is the most ancient-and accordingly, the mother-of all languages.
MULTIPLICATION OF LANGUAGES
lf, Vedic is the universal mother (or foster-mother as some would like to call it), the question naturally arises : how these hundreds and thousands of languages and dialects have sprung up from that one source. How to explain their multifurcation ?
The answer may be brieﬂy given as follows (taking into consideration what native and foreign scholars have written on the subject) Some probable causes suggested are :
(l) Physiological causes– when some people cannot pronounce some difficult sounds on account of some defect in the anatomy;
(2) Geographical surroundings-sometimes making it difﬁcult to pronounce words correctly (due to severe cold.);
(3) Communication and Correspondence (difficulties)- people of distant lands also sometimes cause pidgin-like change(s) in the language and its pronunciation ;
(4) Change of model-e.g., a new king may ascend the throne and his subjects begin copying his style ;
(5) Association-also causes change,
(6) Analogy-is deﬁned (by Vendryes) as “the power of other words in a languages to exempt any special word from the operation of phonetic laws or to compensate it for changes which those laws may press or produce.”
0ne clear instance of this change by analogy is cows. ln Old English it was spelt (inﬂected) as kine ; but, as table, book, boy and other words are formed by just adding an “s” at the end, so the plural of cow also became cows-(though foot did not become foots such as.
(7) Economy of effort-with regular vagaries-
(a) varna-viparyaya or ‘metathesis’ :
(b) varna-lopa (dropping out of a letter, usually owing to inadvertence) :
(c) samikarana-(assimilation) :
cf. Edward Sturtivant (Introduction to linguistic Science : “Of great linguistic importance is the assimilation of contiguous consonants”
(d) viprakasa-(dissimilation) :
(e) svara-bhakti (hiatus) :
(g) sthana-viparyaya-(interchange) :
The following verse, quoted by Durgacarya in his ‘gloss’ on the Nirukta(Ch. 1), gives in brief most of these ‘rules’ :
(1) pro/epen/post-thesis ; (2) interchange ; (3) distortion ;
(1)(4) elision; (5) ‘sense suggesting = engendering another sound!’.
(1)In various fonns of P/’akrta and in English, Greek, Latin,Russian and other languages ‘changes’ have taken place according to the above ‘rules’. It is thus that words actually become corrupt and new languages spring up. Defective and imperfect scripts also have helped in the distortion of a ‘pure` language no less :
(1)In Tamil (script) there are only k and n ; c and n ; t and n ; t and
(1)n ; p and m. [In Arabic script there is no p.]
(1)In English there is no provision for t, th, d dh, n ;
(1)In French there is no room for t, th, d, dh, n.
PASTO & SANSKRIT
Pashto is the language spoken by Pathans and allied tribals of the North-Western Frontier. The author learnt from a letter, received from the Vice-Chancellor of Peshawar University, some years back, that “here Sanskrit is compulsory for all students of languages, as it is thought here, said the letter that, abounding in Sanskrit Vocabulary as it is, Pashto cannot be mastered without a good
grounding in Sanskrit.”
Following is the list of some Sanskrit words, with their Pasto variants, to stress the point :
Also, for ‘grandfather’ the Pashto is Nikoh-derived from ‘niskrodha’-free from anger and, therefore., loving ; likewise, for grandmother anniya ‘anna-datri“,? But, we are just suggesting ; nothing more.
SANSKRIT & SOUTH INDIAN LANGUAGES
There are some words in the South Indian languages, which have their origin in Sanskrit.
On studying Kasakrtsna-Dhatupatha-Vrtti with the gloss of Channa-Vira Kavi, we have come to know of these ‘suspected origins’ ever more clearly-ever more surely. It should be borne in mind that Kasakrtsna had been a South-Indian grammarian centuries before Panini, recording some 800 more roots, i.e., in addition to the 2000 found in Panini !
(1) amma / avva, tayi-mother : These are the words used for ‘mother’ in different parts of the country.
Of these amma-(1) is considered by some a corruption of ‘amba’ ; but according to Kasakrtsna’s Dhatupathavrtti, it is derived from V amm ‘gatau’ (1.224) ; avva (2) from V avv-bandha-ne-palane (1-226) ;t’yt (3) from V tayr, ‘santana-palanayon’(1.493).
[In Tamil the word used for mother, tadar, too appears to have come from the same root] In Marathi, the word used for ‘mother’ is dyt V ay gat au (1.485)
(2) appa = pitar (in Kannada, Tulgu and some other South Indian languages) from V app palane !
(3) ammi-putrí from V amm gatau (Kannada).
(4) akka ‘elder sister’ (Kan.) from V akk bandane + palane.
(5) atta, mother-in-law ; attika, sister-in-law (Kan.) from V at gatau.
(6) appa-‘elder brother’ (Kan.) from V ap sabde (1.206).
(7) nathi, dog (Kan., Tam.) from V nin ‘prapane’.
(8) dana, animal (Kan.) from V dhan ‘calane’.
(9) hana = wealth, woman (Kan.) from V han sabde. (niskasya dasamo bhagah.)
(10) duddu, money (Kan.) from V duddu dharane.
(11) gíni, parrot (Kan.) from V gin sabde.
(12) gande, wall (Kan.) from V gadi bandhane.
(13) vayí, mouth (K. and Ta.) from V vay gatau.
(14) ane, hand (K., Ta.) from V an prapane.
(15) avu, cow (Tel.) from V av palane. cf. ava-ni=’gau’ (earth)!
(16) nalla, good (Tam.) from V nall palane.
(17) ganda-pati, husband (Kan.) from V gadí vadaníkadese (sahayyam karoti)-cheek-by-j owl.
(18) guli, bull (Kan.) from V gul bhaksane.
(19) gulle, bubble, foam (Kan.) from V gull bhavane(vivarte).
(20) hammu, pride (Kan.) from V hammu gatau (brain-wave)
(21) pandu, fruit (Tel.) from V padí gatau.
(22) jenu, honey (moon face ?), Kan. from V jin sambhaktau !
(23) channa, honey, fair lady (Kan. et al) from V cann sambhaktau!
(24) havu, serpent from V havva (ghost) Kan.
(25) hedi, coward (Kan) from V hedr calane ?
VEDIC AND THE REST
Comparative lists of words of different European languages clearly establish the afﬁnity of these languages to Sanskrit. The question remains to be answered is : what relationship Sanskrit bears to the different languages of the world ? Is it Sister/aunt/mother of them? It is here that scholars widely differ. Max Muller : “Sanskrit, no doubt, has an immense advantage over all the other ancient languages of the East. lt is so attractive and has been so widely admired that it almost seems at times to excite a certain amount of feminine jealousy.. We are ourselves lndo-Europeans. In a certain sense we are still speaking and thinking Sanskrit ; or, more correctly, Sanskrit is like a dear aunt to us and [vasudhaiva kutumbakam] she [responsibly] takes the place of a mother who is no more. [Chips from a German Workshop] vol. 5.
It (Sanskrit) is the most regular language known, and is especially remarkable-as containing the roots of the various languages of Europe-Greek, Latin, German, Slavonic, says Baron Cuvier in Lectures on the Natural Sciences.”
And here is what Adelung has to say in “Sanskrit Language”. “The great number of languages, which are said to owe their origin – or bear a close afﬁnity-to Sanskrit, is truly astonishing and-is yet another proof of the latter’s high antiquity. Rudiger avers it to be the parent of upwards of a hundred languages and dialects among which he enumerates l2 Indian, 7 Median Persic, 2 Austric Albanian, 7 Greek, 18 Latin, 14 Slavonic, and 6 Celtic Gallic. The various vocabularies, which we now possess as a result of laborious and learned investigations, render it pretty evident that Sanskrit has not only furnished words for all the languages of Europe, but forms a main feature in almost all those of the East. A host of writers have made it the immediate parent of the Greek and Latin and German families of languages [no less]
Bopp in Edinburgh Review, vol. 33, expresses his opinion that “At one time, Sanskrit was the one languages spoken all over the world.”
And lastly, to quote from W.C. Taylor’s “India in Greece” :
It was an astounding discovery that Hindustan possessed a language of unrivalled richness and variety, a language the parent of all those dialects that Europe has fondly called classical-the source alike of the Greek ﬂexibility and the Roman strength, a philosophy compared with which lessons of Pythagoras are but of yesterday [in point of age, in point of enduring speculation], Plato’s boldest efforts [sound] tame and commonplace…a poetry more purely intellectual than any of which we had before any conception, and a system of science whose antiquity bafﬂes all powers of astronomical calculations. This literature, with all its colossal proportions, which can scarcely be described with-out [a] semblance of bombast and exaggeration, claims of course, a place for itself-it stands alone, [has been] able to stand alone. Its literature seems exhaustless. The utmost [of] stretch-of-imagination can scarce comprehend its boundless mythology. Its philosophy, far from shunning, has touched upon every metaphysical difﬁculty [and has much to contribute on each and every issue].
lt is, thus, clear that many impartial linguists and philologists of the West also admit that Sanskrit is the mother (not sister or aunt) of all the important languages of the world. It is unfortunate that, even in India, not much attention is being paid to the study and spread of Sanskrit either by the people or by the Government. It is high time the study of Sanskrit is made compulsory at schools and in colleges, throughout the country.

Cow the economic angle
Author :- By Subodh Kumar
India has the world’s oldest tradition of domestic Cow. Indians have learnt that bounties that cow offers have many facets that provide with sustainable economic and environmental security.
1. Pastures fed cows provide the lowest cost of producing milk.
1a. This milk is rich in CLA i.e. Omega 3 and Omega 6 that provide health and disease immunity to human body.
1b. This milk is also rich in Carotenoids the main antioxidants that ensure healthy eye sight.
1c. As these cows spend most of their time under sun their milk is rich in natural Vitamin D , and there is no need to fortify like the US and Canadian dairy milk with synthetic Vitamin D.
1d. Cow milk is the only source of essential Vitamin B12 for vegetarians.
Such cow’s milk enables cheapest method of obtaining a healthy disease free human body and saves tremendous expense involved in dietary supplements of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, vitamin D capsules.
2. Cow Urine finds many Ayurvedic medicinal uses. For common man most interesting use of cow urine has been developed by MGIRI ( Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Rural Industries ) at Wardha. Cow urine contains natural biocidal properties of phenol and carbolic acids. Research at MGIRI has standardized formulation of natural organic floor cleaner as a substitute for chemically formulated phenyl used in homes.
3. Cow dung has been used as a plaster for building rural houses, as the cheapest sustainable building material for houses. It also provides hygienic living.
4. 95% of phosphorus for Indian chemical fertilizer industry is imported at a cost of over 2 billion dollars. Cow Dung contains up to 0.4% phosphorus. Entire cow dung in India as fertilizer will not only reduce the requirements of pesticides in agriculture but also will save foreign exchange expense.
5. Traditionally in rural areas dried cow dung cakes are used as cooking fuel. India has been promoting biogas plants. Methane produced by cow dung is a global warming gas. Biogas plants harvest all the cow dung methane, for use as cooking fuel. This also prevents cow dung methane to aid in global warming.
6. Slurry produced by biogas plants contains all the soil nutrients including the most important component phosphorus. This is also the cheapest and sustainable soil fertilizer.
7. Cow slaughter has been a very emotional issue in India. When a cow is well looked after it can easily provide an average of 1500 liters of milk in one lactation period. But when cows are not well looked after the milk yield falls to very low uneconomic levels and all such cows get diverted to slaughter houses to provide cheap meat. No good cows are ever discarded for slaughter. It is matter for community to have the resources and skill to maintain cows in good health and be able to provide adequate milk for as many as ten lactations. Cow slaughter agitation will no longer be necessary. Productivity of a living cow is economically far higher than a slaughtered cow. In due course every born cow will meet natural death. Leather from such cows will be always available
8. As far as meat eating is concerned world has become wiser. Meat has the highest water foot print among all foods. Scientific community is of the opinion that meat eating will not be able to sustain food production for the growing population of the world. This is where Indian wisdom of vegetarian diet becomes relevant.
9. Latest researches have confirmed that Indian breeds of Cows are producers of A2 type milk that is considered safest for human health. A2 type milk enjoys high customer preference in world markets. US cross bred cows produce A1 type milk that has been associated with incidence of diseaesc such as obesity, diabetes, cancer heart trouble etc. Even Indian constitution provides for conservation of Indian breeds. Gujarat Govt. is the first in the country to stop cross breeding. Gujarat is also home to the best Indian breed of Gir cows and has become the largest exporter of milk abroad.
