Ruma2014-03-07 13:33:15 NewsIt is encouraging to hear the need of getting zillion associations together. In my humble opinion, it is essential to vote when you live in this country. Your vote is your voice. How do you know?. I am a registered voter and voted every election major or minor with very few 1 or 2 missed. I am involved in local voluntary work and attended county reps meeting. I am sure if there be a need I can ask them. Instead of celebrating onam every year if these association encouraged the people to vote, we would have gotten lot of support. When I talked about the importance of voting, many of my friends were completely ignoring it. They wanted to become citizens of this country just to enjoy the benefits. Sadly it does'nt work one way.

leaders in Politics ?
Millennium thoughts# 53
it may look like a great effort and many stooges will come out with
trumpets and drums to join their bishop, guru,amma or what ever you
want to call them. But there is a lot of hidden dangers which in turn
can destroy democracy. Democracy is not the best form of Government.
But it is a practical one. The rule of a philosopher king may be the
best one. But where can we get one ?
various parts of the world and ever throughout human history we have
seen the rule of religion with political powers. The crusaders,
French and Russian revolution all are products of rotten religion
and politics merger.
is said; one day; during the eve days of french revolution a lord
came home to find his wife and local bishop making love in his bed.
Lord came to the terrace and started blessing the passers by. Soon
there was a crowd. They asked him the reason for his crazy show. He
said, '' His holiness is busy doing my job in my bed, so I am doing
his job''. Rest is left for your thoughts !
us analyze few facts:
is the minimum qualification to be a priest, guru or amma ? -
they are cunning enough to be a hypocrite. They are lazy. But they
get hungry. So they joined religion to earn their food, shelter and
clothing by cheating on innocent/ humble but idiotic devotees. It is
very horrible and pathetic to see people fall down on all fours and
worship them including some educated idiots.
is the minimum qualification for being a politician ? - apparently
have to say yes to the leader. Be his junta, be in front of a rally,
fight against another party and eventually you will be a leader
making very strategic decisions even though you don't know how to
read and write.
unfortunate fact is the rest of the population has live by a decision
made by some uneducated idiots.
religion rules over politics it is theo- crazy. Look at the
countries where crazy religious leaders rule. Their craziness is not
confined with in their country's boundaries. The devotees / patriots
of the crazy nations are spreading terror all over the world.
priest / religious leader should not interfere /influence politics.
They are representing a fraction of the society. When they rule over
politics, democracy is dead. It is called oligarchy- the rule of a
problem here is; they become small to large feudal lords. Feudal
lords interact and can fight against and destroy the society or they
may join together and control the society. In either way a religious
leader cannot reach a good decision for the welfare all humans.
the religion wants to control politics; government should nationalize
all religious institutions. All religious and so- called 'non-
profit organizations must pay income tax. Politicians should be
working as priests in temples, mosques and churches. Let them switch
their positions. What is the difference- there is none. Both appear
before the pulpit or podium and repeats absolute non-sense like a
parrot. They know; no one listens to them. So they can say what ever
! No one listens!. According to them; they are doing their job or
obligation ? Sounds funny/stupid ? They are simply polluting the air
with nonsense and bad breath. Job & obligation ?- no you are not.
Running your loose tongue is not a job good for the society. Go and
work like an ordinary human. Earn your bread by the sweat of your
evil we should all fight against: special treatment for a 'privileged
'. There is a lot of them:- religious and political leaders ! Why
people and governments cater to them and bow down before them and
adorn them with garlands. How much a human degrade himself before
you seen this so-called leaders coming out through green channels in
customs ? You know they went to overseas for a holy begging. They
are bringing back a lot. They must pay income tax to the country
where they collected the money and to the country they bringing the
money in. The only people who are allowed through the green channel
must be the people who work hard in foreign countries. In India's
case people who work in desert countries. Not those lazy long legged
religious heads in different type & colored garments.
it is utopia? In any country, where a politician has to bow down and
rub the legs of religious group- justice is a myth. In fact,
unfortunately it is happening every part of the world.
! Who is the victim ? Yes we are all. The hard working, 'ordinary'.
So wake up ! We the ordinary. There is no human gods. They claim to
be so; as long as there are idiots to support them and worship them.
You; the hard working is holy- far beyond these hypocrites!
