What bothers me is the very simple put question –
Will the Political Class of India ever grow out of it’s childish ways?
If I am to conclude what I witnessed today –It’s a National Shame !
Our parliamentarians, Our chosen and elected representatives, at the stroke of mid-night killed Democracy in all it’s senses. Just walking down a few quaint hours/days, Watching those intellectual debates, an orator after orator, then eventually I learn to not only move on but to trust no one -but my self. It will surely save me a lot of pain. I wish I could take the stand of No regrets, No anticipation and be with just this moment -fresh as is. But it is SAD AND DISGUSTING.
Rajya Sabha adjourned sine die.
and how very intriguing -that the chairman of the rajya sabha himself did not know whether the house will go on post midnight or not. I have on occasion glanced through the Constitution, but never in detail ..it lies with me in a large version .. I think I must read it now.
People say that it is better to remain silent, and often abused as spectator, than express and be hauled over the coals.
But isn’t it enough?? Haven’t we witnessed the worse morally degrading thing Live on TV. What should I say? Lalu and his company safe for another 2 years or something. Because They saved the government today and CBI will spare them now or it was amusing to see Rajeev Shukla, MOS Parliamentary affairs versus Ravi Shankar Prasad (BJP) his own brother-in-law debating or even worse the opposition trying to score a brownie point against the government with no intentions what so ever for making the law. Pathetic!
First and foremost -Does Rajniti Prasad have the right to continue in Rajya Sabha after such a disrespect? and make no mistake, Hamid Ansari, Vice President of India, colluded with the despicable Congress in enacting this murder at midnight. -a true intellectual, a highly respected man, lost much of his sheen today. Very sad…. All the respect I had for Hamid Ansari is lost. I am shocked and disappointed. Whatever reason one will give in the coming days – Numbers, friends or foes scuttle the lokpal bill in Rajya Sabha. We all have seen -What it actually was.
With all due respect for the opposition. You have scored no brownie points.
Your intentions are even more loud and clear.
And a matter of fact that none of you deserve to be there.
Neither of you represented what Indians actually wanted.
Now when I sit and rationalize about the events I witnessed,
I go through those books of understanding and lectures on the peak of eloquence.
In philosphical, theological and all moral discussions, corruption is indeed spiritual or moral impurity.
The abuse/misuse of the power, position or office that one holds for personal gains. At the end of the day…. You don’t realize that being corrupt might serve you a short term personal gain… But destroy your long term gains.
Corruption takes the form of contrasting a pure spiritual form with a corrupted manifestation in the physical world.
In fact, an understanding will regard this physical world as inevitably corrupt.
I wish the parliamentarians attended the Lectures on Spirituality by Dr. Shabeeb Rizvi @ Mohammad Vakil’s house, They would have understood with certitude that their souls are dead and corrupted because of their actions and enactments.
In fact, I think it’s a good idea, If we all send to our parliamentarians a minimum of 10 sayings on corruption and degrading ones soul and the ultimate cause of the human beings quoting them from Nahjul Balagah -the peak of eloquence and other books that have covered this in depth.
“Piety is the only cure for wickedness of your heart. It is the Divine Light to expel darkness of your heart. It is a remedy for your ailing mind. It is the only way of improvement for your corrupt soul. It purifies your conscience. It brings back sight to the eyes blinded by ignorance of truth.” -Nahjul Balagha, letter no.198.
