In a time of economic and political crisis, the government should rely on them rather than on the Brahmins.
We must remember that he was not a trained researcher or a philologist, but he was a champion of social revolution, and his history of the Brahmins and the Aryans is pure fantasy. In Gulamgiri, he explains his main objective of this book. After the decline of the Peshwas, a section of the Brahmin community in Maharashtra and some other parts of the country began seriously thinking about ways and means for overthrowing the British.
The common people are enslaved and do not desire to be free.
In America, the free whites were more concerned about abolishing slavery than the Black slaves. In Konkan, British officials set up a system whereby the ryots tenant farmer could complain against the landowners.
In return, they gave them just enough food to subsist their family members. They even thrashed them, if they made any mistake.
In spite of this, when the ryots gave their testimony, they sided with their master. So, it was essential to educate the public to be free of them from superstition and blind beliefs.
Modern education was essential to be free from slavery. Jyotirao assumes that with the help of modern education, the common people could benefit from the legal system and scientific reforms of the British government, and regenerate itself.
In sum, Jyotirao for the first time endeavored to define how Brahminical thoughts, institutions, and castes had come to dominate Hindu society for thousands of years.
He felt that it was an important prerequisite of social reforms to dig deep into history to find out when and how Brahmins established their supremacy over Hindu society. This story could be reconstructed from the stories related in the Srutis, Smritis, and Puranas. He has summed up the stories as follows: These invasions are narrated in the tales of Varaha boar , namsimha lion-man and the Vamana dwarf incarnations.
Around the time of the Vamana avatar, the Aryan Brahmins completely succeeded in establishing their sovereignty over India. He said that the system of caste hierarchy was created only to create a permanent rift among the various non-Brahmin masses. They introduced the practice of untouchability to punish those who had fought them the Aryans. In the last few decades, several western scholars have undertaken research on how the Vedic Aryans, especially the Brahmins came to assume dominance on the original inhabitant.
According to Phule, the Vedic Aryans came to India from outside, and fought with the natives, conquered them and established social, religious and political supremacy over them.
Undoubtedly, there are numerous stories in the Puranas regarding avatars, which in prehistoric times attempted to publicize the supremacy of the Brahmins and the religion created by them.
Phule ventures to build up a detailed history from the stories. It cannot be said that he succeeded in the task for. The stories are full of improbable and strange facts. They describe a God who takes on the forms of a fish, a tortoise, a pig and a lion- man. He imagines that matysa and kachchua were some kinds of boats that the Aryans from Iran crossed in to invade India.
But there is nothing to support these theories. This is anticipated in earlier sections of the text where, Phule expresses his contempt for Dhondiba for considering such religious texts sacred.
While Gulamgiri is credited with anticipating modern ideas such as seeing the interconnectedness of economic and cultural subordination, what is extraordinary is its ability to speak to its audience. Sign in. Log into your account. Password recovery.
