THE MAN IN SAFFRON ATTIRE




                                                The man in saffron attire.

Rajdeep sardesai was attacked at madison square, that is the news and video going viral since morning.And some articles are making people read, that a man in saffron attire attacked rajdeep. Shame on people who want to sensationalize and polarize such an issue of countrymen fighting in an alien country.

I don't know what is the issue, or who is right or wrong. Its not just about that for me. Indians fighting with each other over something in a Nation which is far off, welcoming our Prime Minister.
How cool is that? We had to show them, THE Americans, that our nation is not just another third world country as they perceive about us, instead it is a nation which is secular and going to be self super sufficient. We could have flashed our ISRO`s mangalyaan. But no we are obsessed with people and not ideas.



I wonder why do we people turn into sycophants, at times, majority of times. You want to follow someone, follow him, but dont impose him or her on others. How difficult is this to understand. Why debate about a person, on the contrary, why dont we debate and discuss about the issues. People shouting Namo, Namo. What can they achieve about this. I would like to remind them GandhiJi`s talisman again. Are these people lending there hand in development by shouting such slogans.

Modi is, or may be, or may not be good, but he is someone who should and must tell his followers, not to follow sycophancy.  If he is genuinely a good person, he must tell his followers to stop such sycophancy and follow him, or lead him or contribute with him, towards the development of  hindustan, bharat or India. (whatever he wants to name it). At least he should be able to provide them the basic needs of food, health and hut.

What people want to remember him for, is not his Kurta, but is for his mantra getting realized, "Minimum govt. and Maximum Governance". Swachh bharat not just on roads, but also in our insides.

RELIGIOUS CONVERSION (HOLIER THAN THOU)

RELIGIOUS CONVERSION (HOLIER THAN THOU)



Religious conversions, I find these two words totally opposite to each other. Antonmys, how can these words co-exist. And that also with there arms wrapped around each other. A very basic fact about religions is that the God is one and we all are his creations and we need to believe in it.

Every now and than we are seeing ppl from different religions, if not religions, than communities, fighting with each other. claiming to be holier than thou.And a similar race is going on related to publishing the numbers.Now we have created a huge database, telling us, or may i say, dictating us with the number of people or the population in each religion. And also, every year such a data for conversion is also published.


Isnt this conversion contradictory to the very fact that God is one. There is a race going on among the growing (Growing-the most superflous term in the context of religion) religions related to the number of conversions being done every year. And such a data is easily accessible. Christians and Muslim fake institutions who claim to be religious, actually pseudo - religious, are leading or may be misleading the world with such graphical representations.

I wonder many a times? Is it right to convert one person into another. Wasn't the person a good human being earlier, why to convert him. Why cant i be a Christian and a muslim at the same time.

Why do i need a certificate from some institution to believe in Christ & the prophet both at the same time. I have a full right to worship the idols and books at the same time in the same house.
I don't consider it right, to be converted. I don't think i can find god by abiding to any set of rules. How can i become holier by believing in a set of rules which are confining me, compartmentalizing me.

Such conversions are totally erratic and must be BANNED. But the governments wont do it. As they have a huge vote-bank and politics to cater to. but a basic common assumption needs to prevail and  I need not succumb to the rules defined by any compartmentalized institutions known as high temporal religious seats.The only religious rule applicable for me is, not to hurt anyone by my actions, remarks and intents, knowingly and unknowingly. For me that is my religion. And i will not change my name to please you. Request you to help me develop myself spiritually and not just change me physically.
We can learn from each other rather than just control each other.

HAPPY TEACHER`S DAY.

THANK YOU BETA

P.M, a big name, biggest designation. It seems totally un-reachable, unapproachable.
People who become PM seem to be un-aware about literal challenges in villages and belong to certain royalty.

A chai wala, a teacher, a chief minister and now The Prime Minister, but since Modi has become the prime minister. He is a person who doesnt seems to be un-approachable. He is not like other PMs, selected by people, who address the nation only on Independence Day. By addressing the nation on Teachers Day, PM has declared a new kind of Digitally Social Politics of this nation.

I saw students asking PM, a few questions, related to Girls Education, Employment, Energy Conservation and Digitization of this nation. But the best part was the PM addressing these questions as a good teacher by taking very casual and grounded examples. And certainly this was extempore.And the best part of the examples was that the examples given were very much connected to daily life and were related to reality and were connected to roots.

On one side he spoke about skill development and on the other side he spoke about feeling the Full Moon night, Sun-rise to the Sun-set.

This prime Minister has transformed himself from The P.M to a P.M , who clearly showed this to the nation that its not easy to be his companion. To celebrate an occasion its not necessary to take a leave and forget about the occasion. He clearly showed that its the time we need to introspect and start looking forward.Its not just about idolization but also about Realization

It gives an immense pleasure to see children from different parts of OUR nation trying to connect to the prime minister (An Ex-teacher) on teachers day. He signalled clearly that he is not un-approachable, like other prime ministers and he is ready to take extempore questions with extempore replies. He has clearly demonstrated to the world that he is a common man having an un-common designation. And his simplicity is his uniqueness. which he demonstrated at the end of each reply by saying Thank you Beta.
