TWO calamities are on in Bharat off late. One is of corruption. Similar calamity is of targeting selected community. Both these calamities are man-made. In the 1st kind of calamity of corruption, the root cause is greed. Greed of a human being. And when this greed is supported by power being in various governments, government offices, departments, institutions and even judiciary, then this greed has no limits. In the 2nd type of calamity, the target is Hindus – Hindus of all castes and gender. But in this, Hindus are not the root cause. Even in this case, the root cause is greed. Greed to get power through a captive vote bank. Obviously if that vote bank is only 15 per cent but yet in total larger than the divided 85 per cent, then grabbing 15 per cent is easier than wooing divided 85 per cent. Simple logic.
But most simple things in life are not as simplistic. Especially when it comes to the ancient and yet living civilisation, it is not as simple as it looks or sounds. The oldest civilisation always has its own baggage – sometimes rich and ever-evolving – like art, culture, science, family-systems that flourish on serene religious traditions, etc. Sometimes the baggage is detrimental to the civilisation – differences in castes, gender bias, etc. The ancient civilisation, of which Hindus are the living representatives too have these two. But the very fact that this civilisation, along with its people and religion, survived many attacks and yet flourishing, proves that this ancient civilization has an intrinsic strength that is much stronger than the attacks and the upheaval aftermath. For spreading new faith or spreading empire, this civilization was attacked many a time and yet sprung up again and again evolving to adapt the new winds as well as respecting the ancient standards, values and norms.
The basic question: If so, then from the same rich, value-oriented civilisation, how can such corrupt minds spring up? So corrupt that they snatch poor children’s milk; so corrupt that they grab poor family’s roti-daal-onion to either stack or to surreptitiously sell somewhere! Greed! Saw a report that farmers who grow onions are today getting only Rs eight per kg, wholesale is Rs 20 per kg and by the time onions reach the retail markets, they are anywhere between Rs 60 and Rs 80 per kg! The minister in charge of handling this claims that by this the farmers are getting better prices. How so? Pakistan is getting business and duty cuts. Obviously, the ruling party’s shrunk vote bank of 15 per cent is being wooed even through onion! Such corrupt minds can never spring up from Bharat’s ancient rich civilisation; these minds are the imports from those countries that had no value-oriented conscience ever. Whether it is a big money in 2G or CWG or Bofors or alike – the corrupt mind is the root cause – the mind that knows no boundaries for greed. May be it is because of insecurity about the future that has been making these people do so.
But then why force people of Bharat – even the government officers etc – to force to follow such corrupt mind? It is greed. And it is unjustifiable at any cost. So, corruption in any field here is not an action; it is a manifestation of a corrupt mind.
Therefore, the moment such a corrupt mind senses that the root cause of corruption is getting exposed, it gets alerted. It is like the hibernating dinosaur. By the time he wakes up by the happening around – it is too late and then to protect oneself, such a corrupt mind runs berserk and starts making allegations on anybody and everybody about anything and everything! If such a corrupt mind, which has never had any root in the rich Bharat’s grand civilisation, is a centre of unlimited power, then the manifestation of this self-protection is attacking the very civilisation that has inner strength to expose such a corrupt mind! Whole hog attacks on Hindus, Hindu organisations, Hindu Sadhu Sants and even the common Hindus are just a glimpse of the unjustifiable behaviour of such a corrupt mind. Then such a dirty corrupt mind, full of greed and insecurity, uses all machinery at his/her fingertips to slap cases on all that represent this ancient civilisation. Giving booties and goodies to the 15 per cent and keeping 85 per cent population’s children away from food, milk, education, jobs, health facilities etc is also another manifestation of this corrupt mind. In a democracy, even the power centres need to face people. But then by such unconstitutional reservations for 15 per cent and by appeasing 15 per cent by hurting divided majority 85 per cent, this corrupt mind ensures some sure-shot winnable ground, albeit flimsy and shaky. So shaky that the insecurity never vanishes – then more and more persecution of the original people of the ancient civilisation goes on.
It is a vicious cycle. Somewhere it has to break. Where and how? First of all, people in Bharat (And all over the world) who belong to the ancient grand civilisation of Bharat should wake up to the reality that they have been fast shrinking – somewhat by the global pressures but mostly by the internal apathy and western styled individualistic cynicism. Unless the 85 per cent stands up as one and undivided on any internal issue – howsoever pressing they may be – the vicious cycle of the corrupt mind that is at this moment ruling Bharat will not stop. There is no point in giving solace to oneself that – Oh! His/ her name is in allegations; nit mine. All Hindus are sailing in the same boat as long as the corrupt mind rules the nation and states. It is time for all Hindus, Hindu organisations, Sadhu Sants and supporters to stand united and stand for everyone that is being persecuted by the corrupt mind. Economic corruption is just a spoke in this vicious wheel. Social persecution of all that belong to the ancient civilisation of Bharat if also a spoke of the same vicious wheel. This civilisation survived up until now because of its tenacityand elasticity for own people and also due to the toughest fights it gave to the outsiders – Islamic invaders, looters or empire-greedy rulers from Europe. Now, the similar type pf calamity has struck upon Bharat’s ancient civilisation. Unjustified, cruel, illogical and majority hurting behaviour is a tool of a corrupt mind ruling Bharat.
Using government machinery, system, twisting law, forcing / luring many public communications systems like media, this corrupt mind is today hell bent upon destroying Bharat’s ancient civilisation once and for all. In such a calamity, one shrugging responsibility of saving the others who truly belong to this rich civilisation and therefore are being persecuted by the corrupt mind is also an unjustifiable behaviour springing out of greed of power, self-protection and so on. We all should be alert that we do not alienate people who belong to our civilisation as this gives tremendous strength to the ruling corrupt mind. If the corrupt mind snatches poor majority’s food, jobs, tax money, then we all should protest it; similarly, if the same corrupt mind invents false or concocted allegations against the people of the ancient civilisation, with the intention to isolate a few who have been exposing this corrupt mind, then we all should stand up together to break the vicious cycle of this corrupt mind and its unjustifiable behaviour.
