I am keying in this note on May 17, 2014. Will be on a holiday for a week from tomorrow. Yesterday, INDIA was watching the election results with hope, anxieties, sorrow, happiness...depending on the individual's position in life. I had started this 'Warrier's Blog' in 2008 with the following words:
The traditional wisdom tells you that if you remove lack of awareness(agyan) knowledge(gyan) will emerge. Same thing about light. Once darkness is removed, light dawns.
All good things such as wisdom, harmony, light, good food, appropriate arrangement for all creatures to live in this universe and timely changeover of one form to another are all built in in the making of the universe.
It is man's greed and curiosity that has altered the balance. So it is the responsibility of man to set it right, now.
To site one example, the ongoing efforts to find out the secrets of the beginning of the universe in which scores of countries with billions worth of resources and thousands of scientists are engaged are leading to waste of all types of resources, which properly diverted could have helped millions of people on the surface of earth now living a miserable life.
Same is the case with resources wasted in war and a multiple of that much in preparing for wars which will never be fought.
We find out justifications for all wrongs we do. The other day someone ranked nations according to their corruptibility. On a perusal of the word corruption, one finds that the dictionary meaning of the word 'corruption' itself is corrupt. It reads, dishonest or illegal behaviour! The yardsticks for honesty and legality that is commonly used, we all know. The first will depend on the social and financial status of the person concerned and latter, legal validity will depend on the money one can spend in arguing one's case.
Rights and wrongs depend heavily on the muscle power and money power, whether it is about individuals, groups or nations. A reading of newspaper anyday will testify for this."
I believe, I have kept these thoughts uppermost in my mind while writing/responding in the media.

Remembered this, when the thought came that the May 16 verdict is going to change India for the better. Several myths have been broken. WE THE PEOPLE wanted a change. Thousands of leaders across the country listened to the voice of WE THE PEOPLE. In Gita there is an advice from Krishna to Arjuna at a crucial juncture: "NIMITHAMATHRAM BHAWA...." The leadership provided by Modi, Kejriwal and hundreds of others can be considered as the NIMITHAM( CAUSE?)
