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. Adv.
