Why this again and again?


News, A scene on T.V. screen has filled my mind with this question; I tried to analyses my thought process and concluded a few things which I wish to share with all of you

India; a country with world fame of secular region, A land of Buddha, birth place and work field of non violence principle of Mahatma Gandhi, A piece of land where “Sarva Dharam Sambhav” is not a slogan but a life style, A place with such strong communal harmony that all other countries dreaming about to have the same, Today seems to be place of unborn fire streams and waiting for smallest of spark for the explosion.

Today [30-11-2006] three cities of Maharashtra state are under the order of curfew, Almost a full train was set on the fire, some Hundreds of buses are damaged, A few innocent people forced to face untimely death, High ways were forcedly kept without traffic for several hours, Why all this happen because, some hundred km. away in Kanpur, a person with ill mentality has performed an action, for which a person with sound mind will not think even during the sleeps. Dr. Baba Sahib Ambedkar, the mind behind the creation of constitution of democratic setup of our country was the leader of mosses. When we say that Baba Sahib is the leader of Dalits [Lower caste people] in fact it is a kind of injustice with the work and humanitarian attitude of this great knowledgeable leader of the masses.

Presently in our country we are on the ways of setting a trend of withholding life for the reasons that can be solved in other ways. We are in the democratic set up where the number plays the most important and crucial role, but think calling band, with holding the city life and holding the social and communal harmony on hostage to show one’s number is a democratic way of protest? Surely not because it over ruled the democratic rights of others. Instead of playing at the hands of politicians we have to learn the art of handling so called new emperors immersing in India after all we have crossed the fifty of living in a democratic set up and at least now should start taking advantage of our experience.

Today it is common thing that as because so and so place, due to some action, as our emotions are hurt, our Devi Devata were insulted, so we are calling for band in our city and taking out peaceful agitation to protest that. Just think at the most of the times this results in the loss of social and personal properties and even sometimes life of some innocent citizens. Though we have crossed fifty of independence but still we have to learn the art of utilizing our right of expressing self without being obstacle to the same right of others. We are from the country of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna, they have shown us the path of tackling the devil forces; just create the situations where the back up team of theses forces can be isolated from the rest of the society and than can be treated accordingly.

A recall a scene from recent hit “Lage Raho MunnaBhai” in which Gandhi Ji was expressing his desire of removing all his statues. If we fell that these statues are going to become an obstacle for our social harmony why not we are thinking in terms of implementing this hypothetical desire of our father of Nation to keep intact our real social harmony. Remember these personalities were great and worked for the society. Instead of erecting the statues the real homage to these elites, is the fallowing the way of life suggested by them and implementing their way of functioning in our day to day life will take our country on the path of progress. Otherwise it will become our destiny to face this situation some time on the name Rama, some time labeled with Allah or some time with any of our leader like this time Dr. Ambedkar. We have to remember

Jab Ramzan mein Hai Ram Aur Deepawali Mein Ali
Jhagadoo se kiya apana kam apani Dosti Bhali.
When there is Ram part of word Ramzan and Ali of the word Deepavali what we have to do with fighting, our friendship is better for that.

I wish to conclude my writing with the note it is necessity and demand of the present era to develop a social attitude of looking at such incidents not as the insult of our God / our religious faith or of our beloved leaders. We should learn look at incidents of such type as act of person of disturbed mentality. This is the only way of keeping our social, communal and nantional harmony intact and safe gaurding individual and national properties beside the saving precious human livies lossed.

Sir,

It is nothing but an exhibition of illitercy and irresponsible acts that has showed up due to the lack of education. The people who have done this have never thought that they are damaging the National Property "The Deccan Express" \ Railway property which is almost occupied by them only on regular course. It is merely illiteracy that brings this circumstances before the society, and the result have to be borne by the civilised people. Do they mean that if they fight with their father then they will fire up their home?? No they wont coz there they have a feeling that the home is their's, but not the nation. Can you imagine a person to take up arms in supporting Mahatma Gandhi, No thats awkward and absurd, they are doing this only. They are showing that how much they know about the great personality and their so called leader Shri Ambedkar, would he support this sort of deeds if he would have been still there?? No He wont, this shows how much they know about their leader or their ideal. It is very unfortunate on India's part that these people are still not aware with the terms National Property and the values of Shri Ambedkar.

WE NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE BASIC PROBLEM THAT LIES BENEATH AND THAT IS LACK OF EDUCATION.

ONE MORE THING THESE PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE SPARED FOR THE SAKE OF VOTES, WHICH I KNOW WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE OUTCOME FOR SURE. HERE THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD AS STEP TO PUNISH THEM, MUST REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF THE LOSSES MADE TO THE NATIONAL PROPERTY FROM THE FUNDS THAT HAS BEEN SANCTIONED TO THEM FOR THEIR WELFARE.

I AM SORRY BUT I FEEL VERY DISSAPPOINTED BY SUCH INCIDENTS OF THESE ILLITERATE PEOPLE DAMAGING THE NATIONAL PROPERTY & INFRASTRUCTURE LIKE THIS, ITS REALLY HARD EARNED FOR A COUNTRY LIKE OURS.

I WISH ALAS I WAS CAPABLE TO DO ATLEAST SOMETHING TO PREVENT SUCH ACTS, I WOULD BE FORTUNATE ENOUGH IF I GET A CHANCE TO EDUCATE ATLEAST A SINGLE CHILD IN MY LIFE SO THAT THEY MAY NOT TURN UP TO BE SUCH IRRESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, I WOULD CONSIDER MYSELF FORTUNATE ENOUGH IF I CAN DO THAT, ALEAST A SINGLE CHILD IN MY LIFE.


GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY.
