Gorakhpur: A City That Showed Israeli Students Ideal Merger Of Cultural And Literary Values (Photo Feature)

Journeys, whether long or short, always teach you something. For writers like us they are the best means to rise above writer’s block. Last month I happened to visit Gorakhpur, situated in underdeveloped eastern part of Uttar Pradesh, to attend a seminar organized by Aavartan Magazine devoted to  quality research pertaining to social and environmental concerns. This research journal in the past has published excellent papers which have revealed lesser known facets of critical issues. This time Aavratan organized a seminar in coordination with  Deen Dayal Upadhyay University situated in Gorakhpur. The seminar was dedicated to promotion of Hindi- the official language of India. The star attraction of the event was the presidential speech by Dr. Genadi Shlomper, who happened to be Hindi Instructor at East Asia Department, Tel Aviv University, Israel.

It was a pretty interesting experience to hear from Dr.Genadi about his involvement with Hindi during formative years of his  career. His insights proved to be an eye-opener for huge crowd which had gathered there to listen a foreign visitor throwing light on worth of dealing in Hindi! After all, despite constitutional obligations Hindi has failed to get status of national language. Even in routine life of an average Indian enjoying upper middle class stature Hindi enjoys position of illegitimate wife!  Indians have beaten Englishmen in exhibiting their love for Victorian ideals and, of course, for English. Besides Dr. Genady,  listeners also had a wonderful opportunity to hear Israeli students pursuing Hindi language course at Tel Aviv University. Offir Mizrahi, Tal Gorsky, Matan Massika, Yakir Dahari, Alexandra Fer and Adi Fischer who were visiting various parts of India to understand the essence of Hindi in more refined manner had so many interesting tales to narrate regarding their experiences which they gathered during their current visit.

The photo feature specifically deals with places which I came to visit along with Israeli delegation comprising of students. We were mainly interested in seeing places around Gorakhpur rich in cultural terms. That included Gorakhnath Temple, Kushinagar associated with cremation of Gautam Buddha and Maghar which marks the spot of Kabir’s cremation. Gorakhpur has literary significance as well since great literary personalities like Firaq Gorakhpuri and Sachchidananda Hirananda Vatsyayan ‘Agyeya’ were associated with this city. Ageyeya was born in Kushinagar district.

Overall, it was a rewarding trip since it enlightened both head and heart. It’s time to let pictures tell the whole story about the various episodes of this beautiful journey. Interestingly, Dr. Genady was reluctant to tour this city since the place lacked desired cultural value. However, at the end of visit, he appeared to be overwhelmed after witnessing glorious facets of Indian history at such isolated places in this region especially temple and tomb of Kabeer standing adjacent to each other!

An important place! The  Non-cooperation movement started by Mahatma Gandhi ended abruptly due to violent clash between the freedom fighters and Britishers at this place! That led to death of many policemen posted at police station when it was set ablaze on fire by the protestors.

    Arvind K. Pandey, I am suggesting Narendra Modi to give Israel 2-3 some city to develop as Smart City including one in Kashmir to increase strategic, bilateral and cultural co-operation.It will be a second home for the tiny nation like Israel. Hindus in India are quite happy and there will not be any objection for the same.Japan, Germany, israel and other nations which is friendly with India can be allowed provided with strong military, industrial, agriculture and other sector co-operation. This strategic move will reward in a long run as we have to cope up with growing Muslim population, while Hindu population declining. India going to face various problem due to population explosion. Narendra Modi govt. should make a strategic thinking on this issue as there is no harm in it. Rising Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as Hindu nation will not make a threat to any nation and unlike earlier regime the perception about India will change with the support of friendly nation. Now the idea is at the table of Narendra Modi – Prime Minister of India, he need action.

    This is the repercussion of appeasement politics of Congress party. Yes, we are rising. It is unstoppable. Let us dream of end of pseudo secular Bharat, a Kangress Mukt Bharat.Before 3rd world war, India should get ready with new friends deepening co-operation and strategic partnership. India’s agony is troubled neighbour who is showing expansionist tendency, a security threat to the Indian nation.

    Let your Israel friend show this comment and discuss.

    Author’s Words For Prassoon Suryadas, USA:

    When I am at such beautiful places cut off from the global instincts of modern India I feel in sync with amazing feelings within. I emerge refreshed and bit more evolved. In nutshell, I come to realize India is really very beautiful despite being chased by so many issues. I hope you had a close look at all the images even as I realize that I need to use better camera😛😛😛

    ( Keeping in mind long power cuts and bad roads in Gorakhpur)

    Author’s Response:

    It’s all because of absence of real leaders in Uttar Pradesh. It’s really tragic that governments come and go but lives of common people remain same….This must change…
