It was heart leading the head. It often happens with a human being. It happens more if the human being is a poet. And the chances of its happening increase further when the poet is sitting in the lap of nature.
The surroundings provide wings to his heart. This is what happened in the case of the poet, former Prime Minister in Manali, when his ‘secular? heart left behind his ‘Hindu? head.
There the two-year old lie that Narendra Modi was responsible for anti-Muslim riots after the Godhra incident and a few days old canard that BJP/NDA lost Lok Sabha elections because of the riots succeeded in touching the chords of the poet'sheart and in overtaking the hard facts, which his head had known pretty well, that the riots were the consequence of ghastly burning of innocent Ram Bhaktas in Godhra and Narendra Modi had done his best to control them and the riots were no reason for the Lok Sabha debacle.
The lies almost ousted the truth. The senior darling of Hindus was prepared to sacrifice the junior one because his heart wished so.
But the course was corrected quickly. Head came forward to lead the heart. It also happens with a human being. It happens more if the human being is a philosopher. And the chances of its happening increase further when the philosopher is sitting on the land of karmayogis. The surroundings provided wings to his head. This is what happened in the case of philosopher Sarsanghchalak in Nagpur, when his ‘secular? head remained in control of his ‘Hindu? heart. There the hard facts succeeded in touching the brainwaves of the philosopher'shead and in pushing back the lies that his heart had felt pretty well.
The truth prevailed over the lies. Another senior darling of the Hindus saved the junior one from being made the sacrificial goat because his head told that that was the right course.
