Apolitical Agendas

When Arvind Kejriwal climbed the stairs to take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi way back in 2013, everyone had only one question in mind. How a non-political nothing did the unimaginable. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had crushed established political parties including the 129 year old Indian National Congress. It was a revolution, led by common men, of belief and hope. Citizens only wanted better governance and better living conditions. The AAP had ridden to victory just on one thing, No Corruption. No religious bullshit, no vote bank politics. In fact they hadn’t played politics at all. Arvind Kejriwal represents the quintessential common man. He doesn’t have a great voice. He is not a brilliant orator as our current PM. He makes mistakes. He is new to the game. When one of the largest protests against corruption happened in the form of tabulating a Jan Lokpal Bill, Arvind Kejriwal was seated next to the revolutionary Anna Hazare. Anna Hazare, an ageing 80 year old, led the protests to smack the INC so hard, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s win was a cakewalk. However the original Jan Lokpal Bill never saw the day, but Arvind Kejriwal realised the way a bit more clearly than his RTI activist days. He knew he had to get into the muck to clean it. If millions of people fasting and revolting didn’t produce any results, then only one way remained. The Aam Aadmi Party was formed. He had entered the game. The first cruising conquest of AAP showed the power of democracy. 60% of the population of India lives in the rural areas. Delhi has majorly middle-class dwellers who have better situational awareness than rural areas, no doubt. The AAP appealed to these people. They knew INC was out of the question. The BJP at that time hadn't revealed their gem to be the PM candidate. Hence no one cared. The AAP became an obvious choice. They distinctly won the battle. And then after 45 days he quit. It actually takes a lot of courage to step down after their landmark win of the decade. Just tell me one CM who in the last 67 years of Indian Independence has stepped down just because of a rejection of a bill he intended to pass. He made a mistake. As I told you, he was new to the game. 

            The next major positive experience for him was the Varanasi Lok Sabha elections of 2014. The BJP had a landslide clean sweep across India which completely demolished the opponents’ a.k.a the INC. But few failed to notice the almost textbook victory for the AAP. Varanasi has 15% Muslims and 80% Hindus. Out of the roughly 1 million votes cast, the BJP got 55% and the AAP could garner around 22%. This means all Muslims and many Hindus voted for the AAP. The agenda of a corruption free government of the AAP did strike a chord among the Hindus and Muslims alike of the holy city of Varanasi. Arvind Kejriwal won those votes with almost no money. In fact he even took a dip in the Ganges and visited temples. Rest is history. Modi won riding high on the Prime Ministerial candidate and it remained only of conceptual interest. The second win for Arvind Kejriwal in February 2015, which was exactly after a year he quit, baffled well known political scientists. The BJP appointed top level personnel to prepare for the Delhi Legistative Assembly elections. Narendra Modi along with Amit Shah personally supervised the elections. Canvassing, rallies were in full swing. Modi, being the PM despite his hectic work schedules, managed to deliver speeches at 5 rallies across Delhi. Yet again, the Machiavellian ways of the established political parties gave way to belief, hope and faith. It was hailed as the triumph of democracy and the Aam Aadmi Party won a second time. Arvind Kejriwal has failed. He has succumbed to his mistakes. But he has risen again. He has learnt the hard way. He has the quotient and the sagacity in him to sit at the highest political position one day. A well calculated path and timely meticulous decisions will surely take him there. One thing to remember would be important. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections people voted for BJP because of the most successful CM of Gujarath, Mr. Narendra Modi, was the prime ministerial candidate. Not Anyone Else. He had reportedly worked wonders in Gujarath. Well, Arvind Kejriwal happens to be the CM of the Capital of India. The ardour of the future is intensely shaping up. This is the beginning.

The Indian Hypocrisy

              The reason of chaos stands out for the world to witness. If you reckon me I wouldn't hesitate to blame a few misguided persons who have put us into this misery. The effects of karma, some would argue. But a reasonable limit exists to include karmic effects in this pathetic story of over 1 billion people. The core values required in a human being seem to have vanished and trampled to what the olden century people had imagined. Consider a place where tranquility is the essence, humanity is the religion and compassion is the bank balance. There are no fixed ways of life, only to experiment. Well in that world who would have imagined a place like now. Its a trick. A test. A tougher one, a meaner one, but the rules are unchanged. The advantage is faster progression. Speaking of rules, its not the laws laid down by common men. The Higher Laws define them in details in four Vedas. Of course you need to be in a higher state of consciousness just to truly understand and practice. "Out of 1000 who want Me, 1 seeks Me. Out of the 1000 who seek Me, One knows Me" - The Bhagavad Gita. Its a crazy probability out there. The Britishers didn't really make a difference by attacking our kingdoms and looting wealth. That was just the small negligible part. They destroyed the spiritual connection that ran between so many individuals, systems and practices. It looked as if it was meant to be. The corrupt few exploiting their spiritual supremacy, people getting tired of injustice and resorting to violence. I guess after this the word religion was coined. Because a religion never really existed before. It was all about the way to lead a peaceful life filled with advancements in physical, mental and spiritual states. The path was so well versed and practiced, that there was almost a zero chance of beings diverting to wrongful doings. The word for that practice was Sanathana Dharma. Sanathana mean 'eternal'. Dharma means 'law', not religion. I guess He found many people knocking on His door, hence He created diversionary feelings. Inventions, understandings, mindsets all have a dual path to choose from. The subconscious mind is indeed the true master of everything. It is like a Guide, a decider between good and bad. It shall protect you from negative energies whilst giving you chances and opportunities to make a choice. A bad choice and a handful of wrong doings will make the subconscious dormant. It will then go into hibernation allowing uninterrupted freewill. That is why hardly a person with bundles of negativity comes out. In simple words, its a game of choices. But its getting tougher.

Untitled Sayings

The lower souls crying for attention for the ones above them. The upper ones looking for a place above them. Its basically climbing stairs into something you really don't know. The few souls at the topmost realm have very little to do. They have seen it and want to remain there. They are continually in trance with the Highest Soul. They are not interested in pursuing a reincarnation. Its the ones just below these realms that feel to take a rebirth on earth. These souls want to prove something that they have come to earth. Spiritual gurus that we know of. They perform magnificent duties that the world is stunned. They bring you that essence that tells you a Higher Power exists. They gather lot of broken down souls and head them towards the path of righteousness. That's how the world is advancing. Now talking of the ones in higher realms, they check in once in a while. They find out a better class of souls, who really want to advance. They select one or two and train them under their fold. That lucky soul will advance much faster as he has a clear vision and a true purpose. Complete authoritative approach towards the mind holds the key as it can behave as a pure machine or a corrupted hypocrite. Of course the subconscious will be rider of the mind. But you can suppress it. That's the whole point. You have to control the mind even though your subconscious is the rider. If not, your Karma accumulates and you have to pay for your doings. Then its a race of how you survive in this complexities.

You know I was shocked. My mother told me of a place in interior Belgaum. There is a place where a great sadhu, a Siddi, has taken a Jeevant Samadhi ( A state where the soul is in divine union with Him). He had been meditating there for decades in an underground cave. This happened around late 18th century. Years later the public built a temple over him closing the cave with concrete and sealed it with the Sadhu inside. This revered soul's earth name was Shri Ghanshyam Bharathi. My forefathers used to worship in his temple on a monthly basis and regularly conduct various pujas to preserve the positive waves of the place. Even my mom has visited the cave a few times. Then as you know because of the incessant urbanization, the temple and the area surrounding it became a private property. Soon houses came up, some right over the cave! Now a pathetic situation has come. The owner of the house over the cave is not allowing anyone to enter the cave or the compound of hers. A negative soul. But the fact that immense energies surrounding there would be like a glass full of divine nectar. Just imagine a living sadhu living under her floor. Madness. I would be flipping out. I would literally live in this place forever. Now as all visitings to the cave have stopped, they are planning to close it forever and utilize that land. Sigh! What a madness. So just think of how tough its gonna be for us, to get through all this negativity and progress. Its a cruel game but with perpetual prizes.
