The age of instant access has led to a desire for quick and easy motivation. Insta Motivators capitalize on this by providing bite-sized motivational content that often lacks depth or substance.
Today, let’s shed light on the concerning trend of fake motivation gurus and their manipulation of religious narratives for personal gain.
The perils of Instant culture!
In today’s fast-paced era, where instant gratification is the norm, people have little time for lengthy sermons or genuine pep talks. As a result, the rise of social media and the Reel culture has given birth to a new breed of influencers known as “Insta Motivators.” However, it is disheartening to see how some of these so-called motivators are using fake Dharmic stories to deceive and exploit gullible individuals.
The age of instant access has led to a desire for quick and easy motivation. Insta Motivators capitalize on this by providing bite-sized motivational content that often lacks depth or substance. These influencers present themselves as experts, delivering seemingly inspiring messages without delving into the complexities of personal growth or true spiritual development.
The emergence of Insta Motivators has blurred the lines between real and reel culture. Unfortunately, this has given rise to individuals who exploit religious narratives to further their own agendas. What initially started as a humorous trend with slogans like “Main Gareeb Hoon” has now taken a nauseating turn. These so-called motivators misuse religious stories and symbols, twisting them to fit their personal narratives and gain popularity.
During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, certain influencers, from a special community [THAT MUST NOT BE NAMED], were seen actively derailing the efforts of the government to contain the virus. Their disregard for social distancing, mask-wearing, and other preventive measures had serious consequences. It is alarming to witness how individuals with no expertise in public health or science can manipulate their followers and potentially jeopardize public safety.
The Dinkar Syndrome?
The current trend of misinterpreting religious scriptures is particularly concerning. Many Insta Motivators lack a deep understanding of the original texts they claim to draw inspiration from. They distort the stories of revered figures like Karna or Ravana for personal gain, ala Ramdhari Singh Dinkar style, glorifying them without considering the true essence of these characters. This misuse of religious narratives not only misleads impressionable minds but also distorts the rich cultural heritage of our society.
The most troubling aspect is that the primary audience for these Insta Motivators is often the youth, who may have limited knowledge of their religious scriptures. By peddling distorted narratives, these influencers shape the beliefs and perceptions of the next generation. For all his shortcomings, Mukesh Khanna did one thing right: bringing forth such agenda peddlers, as in the case of one channel called “Divine Tales”. If these inaccurate representations continue to prevail, it raises concerns about the future understanding and practice of our religious traditions. The consequences of such misguided teachings could be far-reaching and detrimental to society.
The rise of Insta Motivators exploiting fake Dharmic stories is a disheartening trend that exploits the vulnerability of individuals seeking motivation and guidance. By twisting religious narratives for personal gain, these individuals mislead and deceive their followers, compromising the authentic teachings of our rich cultural heritage. It is crucial for society to be vigilant, promote critical thinking, and encourage genuine sources of knowledge and inspiration. Only by doing so can we protect the integrity of our religious traditions and ensure a brighter future for the coming generations.
