by Javed Raja) Top News It was a Dhanteras without the worship of Goddess Lakhsmi A Diwali without the lighting of diyas or bursting of firecrackers And an equally quiet Gujarati New Year In the last one week of back-to-back Hindu festivals theirs was the only home in Baldev Nagar an upper middle-class Dalit neighbourhood in Ahmedabad that wore a sombre look For Abhilash Delwadia and his family are no longer Hindus having converted to Buddhism over three weeks ago In fact the Delwadias renounced Hinduism on the day of a major Hindu festival Dussehra — a “coincidence” they say At a ceremony organised by the Gujarat Buddhist Academy in Dholka town of Ahmedabad district on October 22 90 Dalits including 60-year-old Abhilash his wife Hiraben 51 sons Kunal 31 Rahul 26 and daughter-in-law Bhamini 27 embraced Buddhism citing “discrimination within Hinduism” and “inspiration from Dr B R Ambedkar” as reasons fortheir conversion Share This Article Related Article Since then the family has been slowly doing away with all the vestiges of their previous faith For example the miniature wooden temple of Bahuchar Mata — a Hindu deity revered by the family till now — has been wrapped in a newspaper and kept in a corner of a store room its face turned towards the wall “On October 23 a day after the conversion we removed all Hindu symbols from our house such as religious calendars and gifted away Ganesha idols” says Abhilash a banker-turned stock trader who “stopped following Hinduism a long time ago” but whose family still stuck to the faith His wife Hiraben even now can’t bring herself to “throw away” the temple “I neither worship nor have feelings for the deity any more But I am not sure what to do with it You don’t dump these things just like that” she says Meanwhile her son Kunal an MBA from IIM-Kashipur who lived in Australia before landing a public sector job in Gandhinagar is reading up The Buddha and his Dhamma written by Dr B R Ambedkar in order to understand his new faith “Unlike the rest of the family I was not sure of the decision to convert as I did not know what Buddhism was really about” he says But Kunal eventually consented to converting “as it was a collective decision of our family” “So what if he did not know about our new faith Our old faith discriminated against us on the basis of caste” butts in Abhilash as he sits next to a statue of Buddha which they bought a week before they converted to their new faith Though the Delwadias don’t specify instances of caste-based discrimination they may have directly faced they add “we have heard and read such accounts from across the country” Kunal for example remembers “being bullied in school for being a Dalit” Unlike the rest of the family Abhilash does not feel the conversion was “a big event” “I never believed in Hinduism an unscientific religion How can one worship gods and goddesses one has not seen I am a science graduate and I believe in Buddhism as it has no concept of god and is based on the law of nature” he says Hiraben nods in agreement and cites a recent instance when Kunal who had just returned from Australia and was wearing shorts was “barred from entering a temple dedicated to Bahuchar Mata as he was told he was inappropriately dressed” Abhilash had got in touch with the Gujarat Buddhist Academy a few months ago for conversion “I had learnt they were organising a mass conversion ceremony I told them to count us in” he says According to the 2011 Census Gujarat has 30483 Buddhists but PG Jyotikar chairman of the Buddhist Society of India pegs the number at 80000-90000 “Census officers identify Buddhists as Hindus in their records and thus under-report the actual numbers” he says This year four mass conversion ceremonies were held in Gujarat — one in Ahmedabad two in Kalol and one in Dholka — taking the total number of new Buddhists excluding those who may have converted privately to about 130 Last year one mass conversion event was held in the state at Junagadh in which 5000 Dalits had converted to Buddhism Similar mass conversions were organised in 2010 in Ahmedabad and in 2008 in Kalol Conversions to Buddhism gained momentum after anti-Dalit riots between 1981 and 1985 says Jyotikar who is a retired history professor and is currently doing a PhD in ‘Ambedkar movement in Gujarat’ He attributes the current spate of conversions which began a decade ago to “higher levels of education among Dalits and thus increased awareness of Dr B R Ambedkar’s role in nation-building” Ambedkar has become a symbol of pride for Gujarat’s Dalits adds Jyotikar In the last 10 years it has become common for Dalit Buddhists to chant bhajans dedicated to Ambedkar and the slogan “Namo Bhimaaya”at public places — the hymn is also scribbled on wedding cards Back at the Delwadia household the family discusses the next big question — should they look only for a Buddhist bride for their son Rahul a businessman As of now the issue has been left to the groom-to-be “I do not mind marrying a girl from another religion The resolve to only marry a Buddhist girl would be an extremist thing to do I have not imposed any such barrier on myself” he

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was left red-faced in Maharashtra when its MLA and former minister Eknath Khadse publicly targeted the Devendra Fadnavis government questioning the policies in the cooperatives sector which is the backbone of the state’s rural economy The moment of embarrassment for the BJP came on the penultimate day of the monsoon session of the state legislature The Chief Minister was not present when Khadse made his remarks Khadse once the number two in the Maharashtra government had stepped down in June following accusations of impropriety and wrongdoing On Friday evening when the government reintroduced the contentious Bill that allows it to bar directors of mismanaged district cooperative banks from standing for re-election in cooperative institutions it was Khadse who cornered the government the most “How many new cooperative institutions has the government promoted over the past two years In fact existing cooperative institutions are closing down” said Khadse alleging that the policies of the government were responsible for it Joining the Opposition which has dubbed the reintroduction of the Bill as being a purely political move Khadse said the ruling benches must consider the fact that urban and district cooperative banks controlled by those “close to the ruling side” who have provided service to the sector would be adversely impacted by Bill’s provisions Incidentally Khadse is among the few BJP leaders in Maharashtra who have interests in the district cooperative banks sector While the Cabinet had originally cleared the Bill while he was still minister he had made his objection known by remaining absent for the Cabinet meeting where it was approved While the provisions under the Bill apply to all banks whose board of directors were dissolved in line with RBI directions and are facing inquiry for mismanagement of funds and illegal transactions over the last ten years Khadse later sought amendments in the Bill for excluding those directors who had opposed decisions that led to such mismanagement Cooperatives Minister Subhash Deshmukh later agreed to dilute the Bill’s provisions The House eventually cleared it with a modification which says that directors who have formally opposed such decisions won’t be subjected to such prohibition Sources said that Khadse’s offensive was aimed at the Chief Minister and Revenue
