1.Catapult (verb)
Meaning: hurl or launch (something) with or as if with a catapult.
Example: The last of the interrogators of Hindu society was, arguably, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. He catapulted to the forefront of the political agenda the many oppressions, discriminations, and exclusions of Hinduism, and thus compelled at least public intellectuals to investigate tradition and reflect on the malaise of the community. 

2.Stagnation (noun)

Meaning: the state of not flowing or moving.
Example: This is a great tragedy, because unless a society asks fundamental questions of itself, it is doomed to complacency and stagnation, or simply doomed.

3.Doomed (adjective)

Example: This is a great tragedy, because unless a society asks fundamental questions of itself, it is doomed to complacency and stagnation, or simply doomed.

4.Disdain (verb)
Meaning: consider to be unworthy of one’s consideration.
Example: Disdaining the stimulating intellectual exercise of examining the collective self, we have swept the failings of our society under the metaphorical carpet.

5.Lull (verb)
Meaning: calm or send to sleep, typically with soothing sounds or movements.
Example: Lulled into complacency by meaningless assertions — ‘say with pride we are Hindu’, or a ‘New India’, or a ‘sanitised India’, or a ‘digital India’ — few people ask why we still practise caste discrimination, why we continue to be disgracefully hostile to religious minorities, or why we are indifferent to the plight of our own people.

6.Deplorable (adjective)

synonyms: disgraceful, shameful, dishonourable, disreputable, discreditable, unworthy, shabby,

But we follow our own star; indifferent to the deplorable lack of solidarity in our community.

8.Complicit (adjective)
Meaning: involved with others in an activity that is unlawful or morally wrong.
Example: Today, Hindu society is complicit in massive crimes perpetrated against Dalits, Muslims, and women, because it is silent in the face of atrocities practised by vigilantes who single-handedly define what they consider ‘morality’, and who punish people merely on suspicion that they violate codes of Hinduism. 

9.Masquerade (verb)
Meaning: pretend to be someone one is not.
synonyms: pretend to be, pose as, pass oneself off as, impersonate, disguise oneself as, simulate, profess to be

10.Culmination (noun)
Meaning: the highest or climactic point of something, especially as attained after a long time.
Example: The process has reached its natural culmination point, and now self-appointed censors force film-makers to follow ‘this’ and not ‘that’ script.
