As we pay homage to our very adored Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, the Father
of our Indian Constitution on his birth Anniversary, we need to be reminded
that Dr Ambedkar who was a symbol of knowledge must never have visualized
that thick skinned persons with never ending greed for Power and Wealth
would ever be occupying very high Constitutional posts. The basic tenets of
democracy and our nation’s secular fabric sadly stands ruptured.

Seeing the sagging levels to which the political spectrum is stooping, we
can only remind those in Power of those words of Joel Osteen “You can live
your life angry, bitter, mad at somebody or even guilty, not letting go of
your own mistakes, but you won’t receive the good things God has in store”.

And when will our Politicians be inspired by what the great American writer
Alfred Armand Montapert had to say “The main source of our wealth is
goodness. The affections and the generous qualities that God admires in a
world full of greed”.

Dr. Ambedkar is best remembered for his wise thoughts; “If you ask me my
ideal would be the society based on liberty, equality and fraternity”. “One
cannot have any respect or regard for men who take the position of the
reformer and then refuse to see the logical consequences of that position,
let alone following them out in action”.

Politics today is no longer a mission, not even an honest profession. It
has become a ruthless business, with morals and ethics twisted, thrown to
the winds. Those belonging to a genre of politicians with qualities of head
and heart cannot survive in today’s political pitch.
