Arya Samaj’s Social & Psychological Engineering of modern Kshatriyas

The idea of the martial Rajput is a complex and multifaceted one. It is a social construct that has been used by both the Rajputs themselves and the British colonial government to justify and maintain their dominance over other groups. The concept of the martial race was used by the British to classify certain castes and ethnic groups as being more suited for military service than others. The Rajputs were seen as ideal soldiers because they were traditionally warriors and had a strong code of honour. The British also believed that the Rajputs were physically superior to other Indians, and that they were more likely to be loyal to the British Crown. The Rajputs themselves also benefited from the idea of the martial race. It gave them a sense of pride and identity, and it allowed them to maintain their traditional values and way of life. The Rajputs also used the idea of the martial race to justify their dominance over other social groups in India. The Rajput code of honour is central to their identity as warriors. This code emphasizes courage, loyalty, and revenge. The code of honour also dictates how Rajputs should behave in battle and in their everyday lives. The Rajputs have always seen themselves as warriors, and they have played a significant role in Indian history. They have fought in many wars and battles, and they have often been at the forefront of military campaigns. The Rajput tradition of warfare is based on the principles of chivalry and honour. The idea of the martial Rajput is a complex one, and it is important to understand how it has been used to shape both Rajput and Indian society. The author discusses the Rajput code of honour, which emphasizes courage, loyalty, and revenge. The screenshot begins by discussing the importance of honour to the Rajputs. It states that honour is “the most important thing in life” for a Rajput, and that it is more important than life itself. The author then goes on to discuss the different ways in which Rajputs can uphold their honour. One way to uphold one’s honour is to be brave and courageous in battle. The screenshot states that it is the duty of every Rajput to fight bravely and to die for his honour. Another way to uphold one’s honour is to be loyal to one’s family and clan. The screenshot states that Rajputs must always be willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of their family and clan. Finally, the author discusses the importance of revenge in Rajput culture. It states that Rajputs must always seek revenge against those who have wronged them. The author states that revenge is a sacred duty for a Rajput, and that it is necessary to restore one’s honour. Overall, the author provides a good overview of the importance of honour in Rajput culture. It also discusses the different ways in which Rajputs can uphold their honour. The author also draws a distinction between the traditional martial Rajputs and their Arya Samaji counterparts. While the traditional Rajputs with little or no education wears his Rajput hood on his sleeves at all times, the Aryasamaji ones are relatively educated and are more in tune with times. The traditional Rajput is a prisoner of the past and often consumes heavy dozes of opium to cope with his not so great present and to slide his mind back into the romantic past of kings and warriors. The traditional Rajput resorts to aggression without realizing that the world around him is fast changing and force doesn’t guarantee political power anymore. He detests democracy and hates the voting systems. He takes great pleasure in the stories of Ramayana and Mahabharat and claims descent from the mythical heroes of the epics. The Conclusion that we can draw from author’s analysis is that there was hardly any evolution of the Rajput psyche in tune with times till 1953. While the traditional Rajput was still seduced by the charms of the old non-existent world the Araya Samajis and Gandhian ones were lapping up anti-Rajputs ideas without any analysis which ultimately precipitated the present abysmal state of affairs where Rajputs have declined in all walks of life – social, political, intellectual, and spiritual.
