While we were children we listened to various stories of Hinduism and about our Gods during festivals or seasonal kathakalakshebams by great people like Anantha Rama Dikshidar, Mukkur Sri. Lakshmi Narashima Chariyar, Thooppul Sri. Lakshmi Narashima Chariyar, Sri. Balakrishna sasthrigal, Sri Jaya Rama Sharma, Sri. Keran and more recently Our Velukudi Krishnan. The stories were depicted as laid down in our mythology and even when they expressed their views on certain incidents etc., it is only to sharpen our understanding on the subject story or the greatness of a particular character. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o> Whereas nowadays, I see that the children are fed with lots of cds marketed by commercial minded people who depict Hindu Gods like Hanuman or Vinayaga through their graphical talents and make children feel very lightly about the mighty Gods. The stories and incidents shown there are not the true ones but made by their talents in line with the present days’ trend. For example depicting Hanuman as school boy in a cd. <o></o> We always have Bhakthi on our Gods which is a mixture of certain level of fear. It is like the fear we have while we behave in front of elders or big people.The present children will not have such a bhakthi with our Gods but will presume them as their school friend. More over certain depictions shown in these cds show certain unrealistic scenes to lure children towards doing things which are not possible at all in normal life. By seeing these things some children who have tough characters or a bit violent or courageous will get into troubles and put others also into trouble. <o></o> I can tell an example of a true incident wherein one boy tried to jump from his flat telling that he wanted to fly like Hanuman. These cds or stories will make children to feel that they are not Gods and when they go to temples they may not have pious feeling. There is no censorship for these cds and so only the parents should decide to discourage children from seeing and having different conclusions on our Gods. <o></o> In our busy life parents who both go to offices find easy ways to give diversions to their children by procuring these cds, instead they should try to get cds of the above great people’s thereby we will make our children to listen to good words in our mother tongue and true stories. This listening and seeing will give them the real bhakthi and our culture instead of considering God equal to their neighbour or a playmate. When children grow higher than our shoulders we can become their friends but we should not give the same treatment to God. Anyway this is my feeling. I invite comments on this.
