I used to be a kid a long ago, why am I re-iterating it, anyways. I mean when i was small, I studied NCERT books. And all the books before anything else, had a familiar face of M.K.Gandhi with his Talisman on it.
And no teacher ever, ever, ever read that page or even tried to explain it to us, and I thank them for this. Otherwise I would have never read it out of curiosity, and my keenness to know the meaning of it would have died.
When I reached my 9th or 10th Standard, I thought- why is this uncle ji’s photo imprinted everywhere with something written down under. Finally I tried to read that, and more importantly I unsuccessfully tried to understand that as well. It was Gandhi Ji’s Talisman. It was the year 1997-1998, but I still remember it by my heart, and I am still not able to work as per it, even though I want to, wish to, but I don’t. And i am still wondering how to actualize the meaning of it.
Now that is a leader for me, who convinces you with his philosophy, without any big jargons, or any superfluous remarks, trying to show his knowledge.
Contrary to all this, is what I see today in 2014, Generally, non-general elections of typically non-general people.
BJP and congress spent 1000*crores (10 zeros) of rupees on this campaign. I want to ask a simple question to Modi and Rahul- Did they remember the face of the poorest man they have seen in their life before giving an approval for this?
May be the poorest Man Rahul Gandhi has seen without a camera would be an IAS officer!
And Mr.Modi has created his own TEA’s-man, contrary to this TALISMAN. Anything which he does endorses his oneself and superself.
Rise above, and work for the people, development is good, BUT, at what cost?
This is something our leaders need to think of. Can they take away land of farmers, the poorest ones, can they displace their life, whenever they want.
I would like to tell them, I used to be a kid a long ago, and am still working to understand the meaning, But you people must not behave like an ignorant Kid now, you are not allowed to!
This Talisman needs to be read everyday in the morning by our leaders, instead of taking any oath during a hoaxed ceremony.
