Our Editor and the Board of the universal Kundalini yoga Mission wish you a happy new year - marked with safety surety and salubriousness. The New Year enters the threshold of an advanced scientific life on earth, when mankind is trying to colonise in the cosmos, for fun, exploration and growth to join with likeminded lives, if available in the vast Empire of God.
While the west has fully explored and exploited democracy bringing out the natural wealth and equital distribution, in India the progress is still a far cry. Rules of the Road are not followed uniformly by all citizens. For the politically strong, they are bent and broken but for the weak. Choaking the throats. Otherwise how can irrigation sources and channels and other communally useful puram bokes are destroyed beyond recognition in the name of quarry licence. Quarrying is allowed only 3 feet depth. But the reality is most annoying.
Writings on the wall are clear. Democracy has degenerated - I beg your pardon - despoiled by the vested interested. People are in the cross roads to choose legislators - as one party finds fault with the others as the cause for the down fall of the Peoples' Rule- while in reality everyone had contributed to the down fall of integrity and honesty burying democracy.
Corruption free administration is the need of the hour. Who will guarantee it? Narendra Modi's performance has so far been laudable and promises made are realistic. A party donned the mantle of David and smashed the Goliath, but time has proved that both are Goliath - David missing, where is the David, How to identify him is the moot question. We cannot be led by a mere promise alone. We must build a self regulating agency - a set of norms- capable of self correcting. Only people fitting in to the crucible are eligible to contest the Election.
If Maosim thrives in the soil what does it indicate? A section of the rebellious mass strongly feel, that Democracy is a cloak for selfish Dagger and only a Revolutionary government of Marxism is the only solution. But friends, let us see the countries wedded to communism. There too the vested interest can create a wealthy class, pompous living and poverty are seen side by side.
All said and done Democracy is the only reliable path to govern ourselves. Every legislator must be warped on the anvil of honesty, integrity and straightforwardness.
