Nitish is providing funds to hindu temples.
Communists are praising Swami Vivekanand.
WTF is happening ? Honestly, exactly what have triggered that ?
I know answer is Modi, but is there some "data"(some survey) that they are relying on ?
Also add, TDP promising Brahmins something. It is also a strange development.
True. Amazing turn around.
I think the answer is: Rise of Internet Hindu. Internet Hindu means Middle class Hindu with technological access.
Middle-class means fair amount of education and empowerment.
Hindus means rooted to the local culture and religions.
Technological access means access to internet, TV, ...etc.
Even Modi's rise was due to the activity(online and offline) of this group. Of course, Modi is talented on his own, but without this kind of group, Modi could not have risen. And it is this group that is most viscerally hated by all the anti-Hindus and anti-nationals.
Middle-class has generally shown apathy towards the social and political situation because they did not have the hope to change. And they did not have the power or tools at their disposal to change. Any activity would put them in direct line of fire. But, with the rise of internet, middle class has found a tool to express themselves on various issues.
Also, the masses(poor and middle-classes) have been kept ignorant about many issues. With the rise of internet info on various issues is easily available. And instant communication modes have made transmitting and receiving info very easy. This has helped many people know to understand the issues better.
This phenomenon has largely been restricted to Towns and Cities only. Yet, there seems to be palpable reaction from the elites to this phenomenon. If this phenomenon spreads to villages, then the fun will start...
