Baba Ramdev’s Fast

Baba Ramdev’s Fast

According to Bapuji, Satyagrah is a potent non-violent weapon for getting our problems solved.  But this weapon should not be used for every problem that could otherwise be solved through consensus, through discussion etc. If the weapon of Satyagrah is used indiscriminately , it could do more harm than good for a cause at hand. Baba Ramdev’s plan of fast from 04 Jun, for solution to corruption and retrieval of black money stashed outside the country is obviously good for the country at large. But his plan and nitty-gritty involved should remain apolitical. For Heaven’s sake, keep the politics away from his espouse causes to seek redressal. Everybody knows what is plagueing  Anna Sahib’s Lokpal Bill and why it is not having a smooth sailing. It is being delayed citing one pretext or the other. These delay tactics will hamper the very spirit for which this Bill is being drafted. No interference from any quarter should b brooked. Now Baba Ramdev has spoken against the inclusion of PM and CJI under the ambit of the proposed bill. This, I think, will go against the very spirit and purpose for which Anna Sahib’s stood for. If the same happens to Baba’s crusade i.e. if somebody else acts at cross-purposes, then what will be the ultimate result of his fast. It will go as the previous ones. The actual subject will be forgotten and new things will creep up thus diluting everything that is gained. Time has come when we should cement our support base for fighting corruption, nepotism and devise ways how to retrieve the black money that is deposited out of our motherland. Downgrading or downsizing others by picking holes in their proposal(s) will hardly help the espoused cause(s) at hand but will give others leeway to put more spanners in the way for smooth solutions at hand. We should, therefore, work unitedly because our chief aim is to fight corruption and make our society feel proud in our rich traditions and culture. Hurdles, if there are, can be ironed out through dialogue and discussions. Positive outcome of any fast or Satyagrah can only accrue when the same is being done with sincerity and no for publicity. God may help this cause not to be swept under the carpet by the vested interests but may bear fruit ultimately for good of all of us. Be He bestow immense courage and fortitude to the Baba for his noble cause.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such.
