Rig veda is not only the oldest anthology in the world but also it isonly old book with a number of dialogue poems. These conversation poems are a genre and Veda Vyasa was so clever that he collected most of them in the Tenth Mandala. Though foreigners consider the tenth mandala the latest in the whole collection, Hindus consider them a part of the original Veda. They are actually dance dramas. That is why most of them are collected in one place. The language of the conversation verses is different from other hymns because they’re meant to be acted by two or more persons. In some dialogue verses we see more than two voices. Many of them are sexy according to modern interpretations, particularly by foreigners, who have no knowledge of Hindu customs

Even in 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature the language of Kalitokai and Paripatal are different from other sixteen books. The reason is they belong to a different genre with music and drama in the background.

Hindus celebrate a festival called Holi, a festival of colours. On the eve of Holi they stage Kama Dahana dance drama in the street junctions of villages and towns. If it is a big city several troops demonstrate the Kama Dahana (Burning of Cupid) in different parts of the town. Though the folk dancers make sexy gestures with sexy dialogues, the final message is Kama, the Cupid, is burnt alive by Lord Shiva with his third eye. If anyone observed the austerity like Lord Shiva, one can burn the amorous feeling with the Eye of Wisdom, the Third Eye.

Foreigners who pretend to be scholars would mention tenth mandala of RV as the latest whenever they want and hide it whenever they feel like. Even the funeral hymns and marriage hymns are only in the tenth mandala. So according to them Hindus did not get married or did not die until the tenth mandala is composed. Since Rig Veda never mentioned salt anywhere in the hymns, they argued Hindus never used salt in their food. They wouldn’t say these things openly, but they would hint at it. In the same way they referred to dialogue poems and interpreted them as sexy outbursts, incest, perverted sex and whatever evil things they practised in their life in the Western World.

Each of the poem appears to be sexy. But they are all double entendre.

Here are some dialogue or dance drama poems from the RV:-

10-102

Mudgala’s wife and the Bull in the Chariot

Indra and Vrsakapi -Indrani

  2. I MEAN THE PERVERTED SEX, INCEST, MANY WIVES, DIVORCES, PROSTITUTES LIKE HOTEL MENU CHOICE ETC THAT BECAME COMMON IN WESTERN LIFE. THEY SUSPECTED THE SAME WITH EVERY VEDIC RISHI AND HIS OR HER HYMN. HINDU TRADITION SAYS DONT LOOK AT THE LITERAL MEANING OF VEDIC HYMNS AND ALSO DONT LOOK AT THE GRAMMAR OF RIG VEDIC HYMNS. BOTH WILL MISLEAD YOU. THE VEDIC SEERS USED DOUBLE MEANING WHICH WE SEE IN LATER SIDDHAR VERSES IN TAMIL.
