Appa Redij & Sugava Parivar

Today, 25th January, is the second death anniversary of the doyen of intercaste marriage movement in Maharashtra, late Mr Raghunath aka Appa Redij.

Appa Redij was working tirelessly till the last days of his life for "intercaste marriage". The promotion and spreading this thought of intercaste marriage of his life-mission and the work he did for this unusual but worth social cause was just remarkable. We find a lot young couples marrying out of caste today, but those were the days, some 30 years back, when the married couples used to be lone, helpless and without any support because of the rejection by their parents and society because they married out of caste. (Still today, the caste plays fundamental role in marriage and the other important aspects are ignored, matchmaking today is still caste-matching). He started on this mission when he retired and instead of enjoying with grand children and family he worked day and night till his last breath. He never got much of the support or appreciation from the fellow progressive social movements of Maharashtra. But we carried on, spending from his pocket and arranging matches for all those like his own children.

His contribution to the society must be remembered. He used to move all around in spite his old age not worrying about his age. He used to arrange programmes, get-togethers, meet families of those married, take help of renowned social activists and ask them to write letters of support & we, very few of us who used to work with him, always envisaging this social movement reach the nooks and corners of our state and country.

He started an organization of all those who got married through Sugava Mishra Vivah Mandal, their families & named it as "Sugava Parivar". All those who believe in this social cause and wish that caste should not be main criteria in match-making, were also part of this Sugava Parivar. He was head of this big family of young families, well-wishers. Sugava Parivar was instrumental in many of nice initiatives in progressive social movements in Maharashtra. As a member of this Sugava Parivar, I thought it as my duty to record all those past programmes, past events and past initiatives on net, so that the new generation comes to know about the life of Appa Redij.

On the second death anniversary of Late Appa Redij, I proudly announce the publishing of blog of Sugava Parivar, a blog related to Sugava Parivar events, programmes.

Thanx for writing on Appa.
One should write about his life/personality/period/friends. Very few persons knew that His life was full of struggle.
He was very simple . He never expected any recognition from his anyone including his friends.
People like Appa always occupy one corner of your mind and today also they are helping us while taking any crucial decision in your life.
Once again thanx.

Why intercaste marriage ratio is 0.75 percent it shows society wise marriages are really conceptual or the mass of Indian territory is orthodox and traditional due to unconsciousness.

जाति प्रथा एक बड़ी सामाजिक समस्या है । आधुनिक भारत में जाति वर्ग भेद का कारण है। युवा दुखी है। जहाँ जाति गत आरक्षण से मेघा का हनन है वहीं जातिय भेदभाव आरक्षण का कारण है। इसे समाप्त होना चाहिए। सिर्फ जाति मुक्त विवाह ही इसे समाप्त कर सकते हैं।
माता पिता सोचते हैं की बच्चे को उस समय जब वह अबोध था से हम पाल रहे हैं। उसका विवाह हम अपनी मर्जी से करेंगे। मै माता पिता के अधिकार हनन को कोई नहीं कह रहा है।कई

बार माता पिता को अपनी सन्तान के योग्य जीवनसाथी अन्य जाति में दिखता है परन्तु जाति बंधन तथा सामाजिक भय के कारण लोग अंतर्जातीय विवाह से पीछे हट जाते हैं।
बड़ी संख्या में अन्तर्जातीय विवाह भी हो रहे हैं। महात्मा गांधी , नेहरू जी ने अपनी संतानो की अन्तर्जातीय शादी कराइ। अनेक vip लोगो ने भी अंतर्जातीय विवाह किया है।इसे गति देने की जरूरत है। सामाजिक स्वीकारोक्ति देने की जरुरत है। सिर्फ युवा ही क्रांति कर सकते हैं।
मान लीजिये पेट में ट्यूमर के कारण पेट दर्द हो रहा हो तो पुदीन हरा पीने से दर्द समाप्त नहीं होगा सर्जरी करानी होगी।
इसी प्रकार जाति वाद का इलाज करना होगा।
कृप्या बीमारी समझिए, यदि बीमारी समझ आ जायेगी तो इलाज भी समझ आ जायेगा।
💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐 आज हमे अपनी सामाजिक समस्याओ की पहचान करना तथा उन्हें दूर करने के उपाए करने में लग जाना है।
कुछ समस्याए तथा उन्हें हल करने के उपाए निम्न हो सकते हैं।
1 जाति प्रथा (जाति है की जाती नहीं)😰😰
प्रमुख लक्षण हिन्दु अथवा भारतीय होने की बजाय जाति विशेष का होने पर ज्यादा गर्व करना तथा अपनी जाति को उच्च मानना, सीढ़ीदार जाति प्रथा होना,जाति प्रथा को श्रेष्ठ मानना !!!
😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓
पूर्व में जाति प्रथा का प्रभाव मुख्यतः रोटी बेटी तथा पेशा था। वर्तमान में रोटी तथा पेशा में प्रभाव धीरे 2 कम हो रहा है। परंतु बेटी अर्थात विवाह में अभी भी जाति प्रथा है।

👉वस्तुतः विवाह ही जाति है। 👈

किन्तु राजनीति ,कॅरियर, शिक्षा आदि में जाति घुस गयी है तथा वैमनस्यता का कारण बन रही है।
👺👹🙈🙉🙊:evil:👺👺👺

चूंकि विवाह ही जाति बनाये रखने का उपाय है। इस लिए न तो अन्तर्जातीय विवाहो को कोई प्रोत्साहन दिया गया न ही कोई पहल । यहाँ तक प्रेम विवाह करने वाले युवक युवती की हत्या तक कर दी जाती है। :evil::evil::evil::evil:😤😤😤😤:evil:

अतः अन्तर्जातीय विवाह ही जातिप्रथा को समाप्त करने का उपाए हो सकता है। अन्तर्जातीय विवाह को बढ़ावा देकर अगले 10 -15 वर्षो में जाति प्रथा को समाप्त किया जा सकता है। 😍😍😍😘😍😘😍😍😍

युवाओ, सामाजिक कार्यकर्ताओ तथा सभी से अनुरोध है कि जाति प्रथा नामक इस बीमारी को समाप्त करने हेतु नयी क्राँति करें।
💏💑👪👫👰👬👭💏💑

युवाओ हेतु वर्ष वार अन्तर्जातीय विवाहो का लक्ष्य
वर्ष अन्तर्जातीय विवाह
2015 2%
2016 3%
2017 4%
2018 5%
2019 7%
2020 9%
2021 11%
2022 14%
2023 17%
2024 20%
2025 23%
2026 27%
2027 30%
2028 35%
2028 40%
2029 45%
2030 50%

2031 तक जब 50 प्रतिशत विवाह यदि अंतर्जातीय होने लगें तो जातिप्रथा नामक सामाजिक प्रथा का समूल नाश अगली पीढ़ी तक हो ही जायेगा।

समस्या पहचान करके निवारण करना शुरू करे !!!

जातिप्रथा नामक गंभीर बीमारी से शीघ्र मुक्ति की शुभकामनाओं सहित
