How did Team Anna members get Magsaysay

How did Team Anna members get Magsaysay –article in New Indian Express dated 11-6-2012

Comments:

When the  Executive wing of government-all levels including PMO mis-use/probable mis-use of their office for pecuniary gain or earning through corrupt means or when there is collusion/abetting/diriliction of duty—when civil  society points it  out or take it to the people ,the Executive wing can not mis-use the force available with it—be it police or intelligence or army  and co-erse the public into silence?Then it means constitution is not functioning?In that case the very executive loses it’s sanctity to use the powers they have as these powers are derived from the  constitutional form of governance?Hope the powers that be and public  are listening to this feeble voice of BHARAT?

Suspended A.P.Judge may be arrested for bail scam

Suspended A.P.Judge may be arrested for bail scam –article in the Hindu dated 2-6-2012

Sirs,

Corruption in judiciary is nothing new.It existed from  times immemorial under the rule of all(ancient Indians,Muslim rulers or the British).Only the tenor and extent is varying.It is unbearable to-day?The politicians who are responsible  for this are crying loud as they lost their ground  to-day anyway.When the politicians were/are busy looting the nation and transferring  the loot to the SWISS bank accounts in the name of their progeny,why then the judicial officials and bureaucrats will keep quite when the loot is  happening under their very nose?They too looted  as much as they can without  getting into obvious trouble?When any one of them is caught ,media and politicians are making a hue and cry  for their own reasons?There is unbearable  INSTITUTIONAL COLLUSION(among all four pillars of Indian democracy) in India?Judiciary may be appearantly far better than other institutions  as they need not  interface with the general public that directly.The need of the hour is  INTEGRITY and HONESTY—self generated from within.Any takers pl.

Nothing will be brushed under the carpet,says Army Chief

Nothing will be brushed under the carpet,says new Army Chief  –article in the Hindu dated 1-6-2012

http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article3479520.ece (see comments inside the article also)

Comments:

This is a welcome and hopeful statement from General Bikram Singh that things would not be swept under the carpet and secularism and apoliticalism will be maintained by the army.We,the second generation/the generation immediately after independence saw different things in India depending on the caste,class,region or religion to which he/she belonged to?

Some of the intelligent Indians  feel  –that the armed forces,intelligence(of state or center) and the police wings which owe their existence to the constitution  which constitution owe its origin to the people of India—all castes,classes,religions, regions included—that these forces are  more  loyal to certain families-political/business or loyal to certain castes or classes or regions?

Hope this impression will be erased totally and the armed forces  will follow the rule book in total in tune with the spirit of the constitution—the pre-amble and the spirit of the constituent assembly in a thoroughly professional way rejecting all vested interests of political class however powerful they may be?Getting protection  from the armed forces,police and intelligence wings  is the only final hope for the Aam aadmi(general public/poor) in mitigating their despair and pain?Hope all the powerful sitting on the powerful chairs are listening to this feable voice of BHARAT?

Mind,Involution&Evolution-(spiritual)

Mind,Involution&Evolution

By George van Vrekhem appeared in the SpeakingTree dated 4-04-2012.

Please visit the following link with comments which was also posted in the Facebook account.

http://www.speakingtree.in/spiritual-articles/new-age/mind-involution-evolution

Substantial research,realization and observations were made by Hindu saints of various schools on issues of Sat,Chit,Aanada-Brahmn—of various attributes as observed/realized by the saints.Materialism gives the evolutionary school backed by substantial verifications through Empirical school of philosophy.To-day this is the officially accepted faith or method?Spiritualism dwells about deep state of  inward existence beyond time,space and awareness of existance.In that state the observer and observed becomes one or it is difficult to point out—this is this?It is a state of very high existence away from all human feelings but alert to the existence?Different religious schools called it  in different material forms of expression.This state can not be expressed exactly.But it  is as real as material  existence.Both knowledge of materialism and spiritualism seem to be evolutionary?The more you dig –the more  you seem to get depending on your ability to explore fearlessly in the inward world?In some extreme states of existence,it may be difficult to get back unless one is alert in a meditative state?Again to fix both material truth and spiritual truth is difficult as finite state,nothingness,infinite state and indeterminate state  seem to be embedded in both cases?Hence it is difficult to fix –this is this-especially in spiritualism—that state of great existence—call it obsolute-aananda state?In material truth—in its finite state you can fix things for experimentability,verifiability  and repeatability.But Holistic truth is all comprehensive  including spiritual truth,material truth and the to be probed lateral truth?What matters to mankind is the symbolism  each gives/appear to give for human survival and well being.Scientific method  has its forecasting  mechanism.Spiritual practices have their perceived system of symbolisms followed by different faiths  for human/life well being.But times have come to fuse them and see with both these visions to-gether  while at the same time be open for emerging  methods.Then humanity can visualize a higher order consciousness.To fix things into equation like—matter=energy=consciousness is too premature or insufficient basis?We are able to define matter,energy and to some extent consciousness in somewhat their finite state but not in the periphery of the contours?Research and realization  was going on from times immemorial or can go on now also,but application may be what matters to the general publc(all except the seers) for achieving  synergy,peace,harmony,justice and development  in this troubled  world?For more material ,pl visit Speeches part of  www.materialistspiritualist.org

Wealth has captured US political process

Wealth has captured US political process by  C.Gopinath (Business Line dated 22-04-2012)

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/opinion/columns/c-gopinath/article3342566.ece

Wealth seems to have captured-Legislature,Executive,Judiciary and Media—the four holy pillars of democracy.Wealth created by all ,not necessarily the entrepreneurial class alone-is being used to purchase power in all four pillars including drafting of ligislations.This will result in vested interest and immediate gratification leading to failure of social systems giving raise to untold misery to a vast majority of helpless public. PUBLIC INTEREST on which basis institutions and democratic process is conceptualized,drafted and implemented is thrown to winds.People especially  leaders-political/business  seem to be used to  easy  un-questioned money.They seem to have forgotten the virtues of  SHRAMA/LOBOUR as enshrined in all holy scriptures.This phenomenon seem to be universal.There is a need for paradigm shift in our thinking,faiths,beliefs,attitudes and behavior for achieving synergy,peace,harmony,justice and development for all every where.

The year of the stray dog by Yan Lianke

The year of the stray dog by  Yan Lianke,Beijing published in the Deccan Chronicle dared 11-05-2012

Very painful feelings from China—freedom,dignity  vs  bread

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/editorial/op-ed/year-stray-dog-575

The revolutionary leadership all over the world promised the cadre/foot soldiers-a great dream- a dream where equality,prosperity,dignity etc. are assured?But after almost 100 years of left revolutionary struggles-what are the lessons for the intelligent children of working class people? You can not separate END from MEANS?Both are embedded in the wholistic total?There is a need for commitment of the highest order to humanity,life and dharma (or commitment to the agreed principles).One can question the old order which may be troublesome and inefficient,but the leadership should be clear where they are driving the public/supporters and ensure proper systems and processes are in place to steer in the broad vision embarked upon.This is true of all  emanicipative methods in all systems involving huge mass of public.

Lobbyists,Guns and Money

Lobbyists,Guns and Money  by  Paul Krugman (New York Times dated 26-03-2012)

Op-Ed Columnist:  Lobbyists, Guns and Money

When man becomes too materialistic and mechanistic,he sees only matter everywhere in the form material psysique,material comforts,immediate gratification,profit etc.He sees the other person as a tool to get these?If great institutions which are all along pampered for greatness  are so mean,what will happen to future of humanity?There is a need for moderation and effective correction.For possible vision and road map,pl visit  www.materialistspiritualist.org (especially article1)

Cannibalise the future

Cannibalise the future by Paul Krugman appeared in the Business Line dated 14-04-2012(Originally from New York Times)

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/todays-paper/tp-opinion/article3312457.ece

This is what happens when we consider ourselves as materialistic and mechanistic?There is no role for spirit/subjective?There is a need for commitment of the highest order to humanity,life and dharma(or commitment  to agreed principles) from the leadership.This article expresses the frustration and intellectual woes of some of the greatest thinkers of the Western world.Time for a paradigm shift in our thinking,faiths,beliefs,attitudes and behavior for achieving synergy,peace,harmony,justice and development.

Ravana to the fore as Bahujan students celebrate Ram Navami

Ravana to the fore as Bahujan students celebrate Ram Navami –TNN(Times of India dated 2-4-2012)

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/hyderabad/Ravana-to-the-fore-as-Bahujan-students-celebrate-Ram-Navami/articleshow/12498173.cms

One can understand the anguish of the Bahujan intellectuals.This is the direction they should have started ages ago—to question the supremacy of the upper castes—more so the theoretical/spiritual  basis of such a stratification of the world of gods and hence to the human world?Again the Bahujan intellectuals are falling into the trap of getting into the same world—Aryan vs Dravidian  or  Deva vs Asura which are basically coined by Westerners and Brahmanical intellectuals.As said –Rama was an Aryan while Ravana was a dalit symbol?But Rama was a skhetriya thus Aryan(if Aryan theory is confirmed) and Ravana was a Brahmin according the the same source?Why do Bahujan intellectuals want to rely on sources where they have no ground?Again to deny spirit  or  a world other than materialism is fallacious and insufficient.There exists a spiritual world for believers and may exist for others?In an emerging new world order,one can go to the same source which pre-existed before all religions  and pray  for a direction.In this connection ,article3 –Twi-light of the Gods by Henry skolimowski in  www.materialistspiritualist.org may be useful   for creating alternate resource material through meditation,research and realization.Again instead of hating,all good and useful material should be taken from all sources particularly brahmanical sources which are vastly researched and realized  in an open ground  in the interest of SAKALA LOKA KALYANAM  /  PUBLIC GOOD.Such a system of thinking  should address cultural accountability on a long term sustainable basis.
