Language reflects a culture's aspirational value to society. It is at the root of creative
agency of a people.
But today, this role has been outsourced to the market. This stunts 'cultural confidence'. Languages are evaluated not on the worth of their cultural importance but on the utility to get jobs and join a specific cultural paradigm.
Compounding this is the issue of politicization of language in the name of democracy.
All of this leads to loss of the vital spirit of a land, of its culture and its people.
But the Hindū consciousness is no longer underground. It has started surfacing. The spark of Hindū renaissance is now turning into a huge flame. We are putting the Hindū eye to philosophy, society and politics.
Time has come now for this Hindū consciousness to break into the level of arts and literature.
the Creation of Beauty
is the primary goal of the series. It wants its audience to experience rasa like a rasika and a nāgarika
Reestablishment of Sanskṛta Niṣṭha Hindī
our second goal is to re-infuse the spirit of Sanskṛta into Hindī language and to free it from FATE words, in order to bring dhārmic awareness.
Hindī literature and Indian arts from a Hindū perspective
the third goal of Svarṇānjali is to revisit literature, arts, drama, architecture, sculpture and cinema from a deep Hindū perspective.
to Aestheticize Life
the last goal is to discuss individual problems and perspectives from the eye of Hindū aesthetics and in the process give them an elevating and uplifting experience which will also be cathartic.
