Mangaluru: Class 2 poem creates controversy – Hindu organizations cry foul


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Oct 16: The poem prescribed for class 2 English subject by the Education department has courted controversy.

The poem ‘Go not to the temple’ adapted from Rabindranath Tagore’s writings in the text book has irked the pro-Hindu organizations. The organizations accuse that the programme depicts Hindu religion and traditions in a derogatory manner and will affect the mind of young children.

The poem says that there is no need to go to the temple, there is no need to offer flowers to God, and there is no need to kneel down and pray. Instead, help those who are in need.

Parents of students also accuse that this poem that should be prescribed to adolescents is not right. Hindu organizations say that only the temple is mentioned in the poem and if the education department indeed wants to instil secularism in children, let it also make mention of church and mosques and make modifications in the poem.

This text book for class 2 is prescribed for students by the textbook revision committee headed by litterateur Baragooru Ramachandrappa. Though many days have elapsed since the publication of this text book, the specific page that contains the poem is going viral on social media. Hindu organizations which have come to know about the poem have urged the state BJP government as well as the education department to withdraw the poem immediately.

Reacting on the issue, Muralikrishna Hasanthadka, provincial convener of Bajrang Dal said, “Processes of this kind in which Hindu religion is portrayed in a derogatory manner are going on unabated. Now text books read by young children also contain such poems. The state government should immediately take action on the same. The controversial poem should be withdrawn from the text book immediately. Otherwise Bajrang Dal will stage a state-wide protest.”

Sunil, parent of a class 2 student said, “There is no need for young children to learn these matters. Attempts to teach the ideology that needs to be prescribed for adolescents, should not be done with young minds.”

Social media is also abuzz with criticism on the attempt to malign Hinduism through schools.

    I really appreciate the understanding and level of thinking of these Organisation who cry foul on Class 2 poem which is written by Nobel Prize winner late Rabindranath Tagore. The words Go not to the temple to put flowers upon the feel of the God, First fill your own house with fragnance of love ..... Instead, if it is: First fill your own house with fragnance of love ..... Then, go to the temple to put flowers upon the feet of the God AND similar way; continuation of other lines.

    In the religious terms Church means, we the people. All people gather in a place to worship the Almighty God. Church means in other words a Place of Worship. People may ask why then these big, big buildings. These buildings are constructed to protect the worshipers, from wind's, rain, dust-storm, extreme cold and to protect from heat of the Sun. Otherwise Christians or any humans doesn't needs big, big buildings. St. Paul says in the acts of apostles 1 CORINTHIANS 3:16 KNOW YE NOT THAT YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, AND THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLETH IN YOU. In conclusion, humans doesn't needs buildings for worshipping. Stand wherever you are, you can worship Almighty God. God is everywhere irrespective of space, place and time. No need to turn to that place and some particular direction and in particular time. Almighty God is everywhere not only in Jerusalem, Rome, pakka in Mecca, Madina, Ayodhya, Mathura, Varanasi. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL......

    All through decads no one find any problem withTagore's poem, but all of a sudden when sanghi 's start sending thier children to English school from thier conventional Gurukula , they start mess with English subjects with thier half knowledge. They read first part "Don't go to temple....... " Without understanding essense of whole poem,.these idiots make hue and cry . These morons doesnt know temple meaning "Place of worship ( irrespective of religion ) And moreover it is derived from English not derived from any Indian language, But in India it is commonly used for Hindu's place of worship. So they might thought that temple is called only for hindu devasthana .

    First try to learn English....Find out the meaning of Temple in dictionary... It says it's a place of worship, but doesn't says it is a place of worship of only Hindus.... Temple is a generic word used for all Religious Places..... A poem writer can't use multiple names of Temple, church, Masjid etc in the poem.... The poet has to finish in one word...... With respect to meaning, only illiterates can argue with this poem... It is not stopping anybody from going to Temple, but what it is trying to convey is before going to Temple, you should follow the 2nd line of each parah.... The poem is not teaching anything awkward or bad, it is asking us to be self clean before we worship God. Illiterates are arguing without understanding the meaning..

    A Grade 2 student learns this poem under the watch of a teacher. No teacher will ever explain the word "temple" in such a narrow term as the Hindutva organizations do. The word "temple" means the temple of God the Almighty and is not the trademark of the Hindu religion. The words "churches" and "mosques" are specific to those other religions. The church is first and foremost called a temple; the word church originated later to denote a particular religion, and is included in the word "temple". So also a mosque. Ignorant and uneducated Hindutva orgqanization members are so dumb they make a distinction as if the word temple belongs to them.

    this is part of class 2 ENGLISH subject...when there are so many poets native english poets why include a translated poem... the essence of a poem is lost when it is translated... better to have some easy to understand poems from british poets for class 2 English subject... if it is kannada subject, have native kannada writers poems... if it is malayalam, have malayalam poems... it is a wrong decision to include this kind of heavily loaded poem to class 2 students... we can see even adults have not understood it properly.. what about the little kids...i conducted trainings as part of my career for a long period... one of the basic principle of teaching is that the content has to be appropriate for the understanding capability of the audience... even rabindranath would not have liked this poem being taught to such young audience...4th stanza is absolutely not meant for kids... does any one introduce the word 'sin' to a child of 5-6 years...

    The pem is good. The same poem has been included in NIOS Secondary Samskritham language text book. I think, secondary level is the best to teach this poem, not 2nd standard. In such a lower class, the themes like मातृदेवो भव, पितृदेवो भव, आचार्यदेवो भव are better to be taught as they are not communal. In this early stage, the children only understand the 'direct meaning'. They won't try to understand the actual theme.

    These people seem to be hunting for issues to retain their relevance. A person who knows English would have easily understood its meaning. Put in simple words, each stanza asks us to go to the temple only after we do what is written in the second line. And here, temple is a generic term. Somebody should take English classes to these .

    Very sorry to note this so called " CONTROVERSY " Well learned people of yester era were equally so intelligent like more than us all. Really sad that we ought to realize the real intrpretation." Temple "does not mean a place where our HINDU brothers and sisters go and visit. It is generally meant as " A HOLY PLACE OF WORSHIP " We owe a ' DEBT ' to our Great Universally Acclaimed Person in our RABINDRANATH TAGORE JI . By saying all this, we be-rate him and get an UNCALLED " SLAP on Our Own Face " Really sad to know this ! I therefore, earnestly appeal to you all my brothers n sisters, friends as well as my foes not to create any misgivings in this normal interpretation, and CLOSE this MATTER once for all. Let us all without any exception, LIVE HARMONIOUSLY as we possibly could. MAY OUR DEAR GREAT ALMIGHTY TAKE CARE OF US AND ALSO BESTOW UPON HIS CHOICEST BLESSINGS ON US ALL FAITHFULS !!!

    Go not to the Temple, Mosque, Church or Gurudwara... Then I think the poem would have been secular? Think then there would have been no objections and no comments on this article. Rabindra Nath Tagore ji lived in a different age ji.This age is different ! Let us be frank....Here I agree that Temple is symbolic of religious places............. However, had it been written ' Go not a mosque, church, then all hell would have broken loose ! Targetting Minorities etc .. Is it not? A community as we all know is hell bent on standing up for our National Anthem written by the same poet, not singing Vande Mataram, Saare Jahaan se acchha, Chanting Bharat Mata ki Jai ! How come? So if one community has reservations against this 2nd std.poem let them ! What harm??

Even "Daasara Padagalu" also bear such poems... Protesters have no other business. There are a sect of people protested Jnanapeetha Awardee Karanths "Oduva Aata" also. It was protested after 20 years of his writing. Bhishma Sahani's Novel also created controversy when it became serial. These writings won't disturb as long as they are in library cupboards.

Yes, Do Not Go To Holy Religious places to seek god because gods is everywhere but go to help the poor and less fortunate to seek god because they can not come to you. Unfortunately these pseudo Hindu organisations seek outward show to misuse and exploit Hindutva for vote publicity than truly serving the lowest of the low.
