A Nation at War With Itself

A great and ancient culture is how we describe ourselves. A land of milk and honey, a tolerant society which absorbed every invader and a spiritual atmosphere that pervades  every nook and corner....

Is this from a tourist brochure or from a leaf of the famed Huen Tsang, the famed Chinese traveller . All this seems at wide contrast to what we believe is reality today in our society and country.

Tolerance seems to have been blown away by the westerlies. Love is just a four letter word and harmony the name we give  a music album. We seem to be a bunch of highly competitive and unscrupulous people who worship Goddess Mammon.

Increasingly, a nation at odds, a nation at war with itself. Let wiser counsel prevail and  sanity be restored. This is a call of duty for all of us.

It is indeed a call of duty. Things are slipping badly. Leadership is either absent or has surrendered its dignity and integrity at the Family altar. Real change is not going to be top down. We have to answer the call and be the change we want.

Absolutely.We have come to a stage we are a headless country. We need some divine intervention to put us back on our feet and the respect we commanded as a nation.

We have thrown away our old values and put western values in their place. However, we interprete these new values according to our convenience.

For expl: Freedom should mean acting within those limits we ourselves have set after some thought.

Instead, we interprete freedom as liberty to act according to whatever whim occurs to us at that moment.

As for duty- most Indian citizens today recognise only rights, not duties.

from a contrarian POV, it may be a good thing as anger is not suppressed and is being expressed at the available outlet like say twitter, better than graffitis on the walls i think.
