This is apropos to your article titled "कहाँ गए भले लोग?" published on editorial page of "दैनिक भास्कर" dated April 15th, 2010.
i would like to share the following on the subject ;
Is it not preposterous to even think that a politician, an administrator, a police offical,a journalist, a doctor, a judge, a lawyer, a teacher...or any professional for that matter will be more honest, more prudent, more ethical, more sensitive, more law abiding, more spiritual than the rest of the society...???
After all, this professional is born & brought up in the same selfish, cunning, corrupt, insensitive, law breaking, God fearing & not God loving society & so how can you expect him/her to be any different...???
Is not an individual true reflection of the society itself...???
Is it not, then, asking too much from these administrators to protect lives & safeguard wellness of each one of us, where ever & when ever we are...???
Is it not like asking them to be Gods in their fields & grant our wishes when even Gods fail in doing so...???
That we still get to see a few different individuals, going about their job with loads of passion, dedication & honesty is a welcome sign of relief but such individuals are exceptions & not norms of the society or the system,in fact, they are what they are, inspite of the society.
As a matter of fact, society tries very hard to make them like itself.., tortures them in their hay days for not being one with it, punishes them for being different till they succeed.
Abhinav Bindra being the latest example.Thankfully, there is no dearth of such examples, be it Gandhi, Einstein, Kiran Bedi, Barkha Dutta, Dr Reddy, K G Balakrishnan, T N Sheshan, Aamir Khan, M S Dhoni....etc. etc. to name a few known personalities among a stream of many many unknown ones...
No matter what the quantity of such amazingly passionate individuals is, they are still very far & few when compared to the vast & roaring sea of society filled with blaming individuals & that equation needs to CHANGE & change asap.
i am not only confident but very HOPEFUL that this will happen...
it is happening already..
can you see it..??
This equation has always been 15% is to 85%, in the favour of what you call dotards ( i call them machines ), but still this world is a beautiful place because of this very 15% humans who are very very powerful when compared to 85% machines...
Do watch MATRIX trilogy ( Original vcd/Dvd please...) & you will know what i intend to say..
Few more examples from the past are ;
Krishna v/s Kans & the army..
Rama v/s Ravana & the army..
5 Pandavas v/s 100 Kauravas..
Man is a bad case....isnt it?
