Post image for Funny India Photo: National School of Decency

Here’s another reason why I love Odisha — decency is important there. Important enough to have a National School of Decency. Even better, it’s part of an International Indecency Prevention Movement. That’s essential, because we all know indecency comes from the wicked west!

I found their site. They even have a book describing their philosophies –> http://iipmsovaniya.org/iipm%20book.htm

Twenty page of reading that dribble and I wanted my gouge eyes out. Anyway, the school isn’t what I’m going to have sleepless nights about. What we should be more concerned is – what if the men and women who graduate from this ‘school’ find themselves in the real world (where indecency is more fun)? Would they feel duped and get back at their school? Or would they plot horrid way to ‘punish’ us ‘indecent’ folks?

“Way to Blissful Reformation” “A Movement of Introspection and Self Purification”

Wow!

Even the Chief Minister of Orissa supports it in an extract of his speech provided in the book. He hopes the institution will be the pride of Orissa one day! And it was half naked vulgar dancing girls in Mumbai that inspired the founder to start the movement.

The school was founded in 1962 and now has a website as well

http://iipmsovaniya.org/

Kumar Bhai , the Founder and Chief Director who was a talented writer, poet, orator, actor, director, educationist, social worker and philosopher got the idea of this Movement when he prevented a half-naked dance-program of a girl in a stage at Bombay, was stoned but at last was able to change the dancing girl’s heart . She promised never to dance to such intoxicating vulgar dance any more.

He first toured through different School and Colleges of India and presented high standard instructive but entertaining Solo-acting programs in English, Hindi , Oriya and Bengali and requested all to prevent indecency in art, literature, drama and film . He was earning them Rupees three hundred per hour for his solo acting performance and he was acting for three to four hours nonstop. He delivered a message every where “Change literature, art, drama and films. Our thinking process will change and so the society”. Late padmashri Dr. Laxmi Narayan Sahoo, a member of the servants of India Society came for starting a movement, after hearing his speech.

On the 8th of April 1962, which was the sixteenth birthday of Kumar Bhai , Late Dr. Sahoo organized a Meeting at Cuttack Shri Ramachandra Bhavan to declare the start of Bhai’s Unhealthy Literature, Art, Drama, Film Prevention Movement. Dr. P.K. parija the then Vice-Chancellor of Utkal University presided over the Function.

Kumar Bhai toured through out the country and preached his programmes.

Great noble persons like Vinobajee, Dr. S. Radhakrishana, Dr. K.M. Munshi blessed the Movement. Bhai made padayatra through the villages and SELF-PURFICATION PROGRAM was introduced.

Interest was marked in Foreign Countries for the Movement. Vulgar unhealthy books, Magazines, Posters and Transparent tempting dresses were burnt.

I don’t think the west to be indecent.

Please explain to me how the west is NOT indecent. I will even give you five categories:

Family
Entertainment
Foreign Policy
Morality
Society

In which of these categories is the west not indecent? It is incredible how the Hindu and Sikh concepts of Kalyug perfectly align with the age of Western rule over the world:

“1. Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
2. People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
3. Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
4. Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
5. People will take vows and break them soon after.
6. People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
7. Gurus (Teachers) will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.The maximum lifespan of a human in this age is 90-100 years.
8. Brahmans will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings”

Indians who blindly ape the west and worship it, are in fact cowards to their very core. People will try to paint the majority of Indians who agree with these statements as ignorant people, but the truth is that they are on the side of Dharma.

Ya know, what’s interesting is that all of the people I’ve met from Odisha call it Orrisa! I just met a girl who owns a hotel chain there, and she has no qualms calling her state Orrisa! I get confused half the time as no Indian person I know calls Bombay ‘Mumbai’…it’s like they don’t even know what ‘Mumbai’ is!!!

The only name that’s stuck seems to be Chennai. No one says Madras anymore, they call the city Chennai!

In any cayse, lovely post! Hope to read more about Odisha!

So true! It’s a case of how “politically correct” one wants to be. Lots of people in Mumbai don’t even like its new name… they prefer and identify with Bombay. So, I guess people like to stick with what’s familiar to them.

Hi Sharrel,

Happu “Basant Panchami” to you and family. May Goddess Saraswati bless you with knowledge and wisdom. Do Oriya women wear yellow saris and worship Goddess Saraswati this day.

Nice photo. Reminds me of Taliban’s Ministry of Prevention of Vice and Promotion of Virtue, although not in the same league.
