In a recent tweet, Bollywood actress Digangana Suryavanshi expressed her disappointment with the casual and disrespectful manner in which some people address Hindu deities.
Known for her strong convictions and unwavering dedication to her craft, Digangana’s highlighted the need for reverence and respect when addressing the divine.
“Why disrespect with respect?” questioned Digangana, her voice filled with genuine concern. “Heard a bunch of people say Durga, Rama, Sita, Shiva, Janaki, as if they are friends! When addressing God, is it difficult to say Durga Maa, Shree Raam, Devi Sita, Shivji, Janaki mata? Do we also address our parents by just their names? I suppose not.”
The young actress, who has carved a niche for herself in the entertainment industry, went on to emphasize the importance of upholding religious values and traditions.
She expressed her surprise that individuals who claim to be religious would use such language, which not only disregards cultural norms but also reflects a lack of understanding and appreciation for the divine.
“It just hurt me so I had to let it out,” Digangana confessed, her words resonating with those who hold similar beliefs. She understands that the use of casual terms may stem from ignorance or a misguided attempt to appear modern and progressive. However, she firmly believes that true progress lies in preserving and honoring the sacred aspects of one’s culture.
Digangana’s heartfelt statement serves as an inspiration for people from all walks of life. It reminds us to be mindful of our language and the significance it carries.
She encourages individuals, regardless of their religious background, to embrace a respectful approach when addressing the divine entities they hold dear.
As Digangana rightly points out, just as we wouldn’t address our parents by their names alone, we should extend the same courtesy to the gods and goddesses we revere.
By doing so, we foster a deeper connection and understanding of the divine and nourish the spirit of faith within us.
In a world that often seeks to discard traditions and adopt more casual approaches, Digangana Suryavanshi‘s words serve as a beacon of light, guiding us back to a place of reverence and respect.
On the professional front, the young starlet will soon be starring in the Hindi web show Showstopper. She will also be seen in the upcoming Tamil film Mahal as the leading lady!
