The Dilemma of India
Of late Ramdev became a huge topic of discussion for every household or let me be precise, for every person on the virtual or the real world. I was busy then and I did contribute to discussions but I wanted to blog about it as well, and I always say, my belief does not mean I disrespect you; it’s just a point of opinion.
My question to anyone who reads this blog is, does there exist any country in this world where GODMEN even exist? I wonder where else can you not work and die with Billions of property for your family. Indians would know I am talking about Sai Baba. 80 thousand crores, that money will never see the light of day. Would I need even talk about Swami Satyananda etc. People who have faith in these Godmen still refute the videos of them doing illicit things, but there exists enough evidence to prove them wrong. They have Islands in Scotland, have huge farmhouses in Australia. The poorest of people leave 10 Rupees, at their feet and they accept it. (About 15 American cents) and then they continue to get richer and richer.
We work about four odd months every year so we can pay our taxes. We want the black money to come out of the market (Which I accept that it is a huge amount). Yet we refuse to acknowledge that a large part of our hard earned money is spent on such people. All these god men have Z+ security, and over head expenses all born by the taxpayer.
Given a chance I wish I could get rid of all of them. However, we are so religiously bound even in my home my mom refuses to accept that I am an atheist and partly agnostic.
Oh well religion is the opium of the masses.
The problem of prejudice and conflict is never as severe as in the case of religion. I could talk about false beliefs and fear psychosis (Partially the fear of the unknown.), relative deprivation, memories of past injustices, economic motives. I guess I have proven my point here.
The situation saddens me.
