Fake Degree and In a Row

Spat of fake degree cases after the state, municipal and main elections is not new but yet has not become a matter of urgency. By this scale, when we are offered news about Delhi Law minister Jitender Singh Tomar having forged law degree we are tend to get shocked. Without any premises where should now we look for some idealization.

Even an appreciation course in governance for the interested candidates of various parties would have been a good resolution. Can we imagine, if a political party tries to excuse itself to having field an inappropriate candidate in an abruptness? Various political portfolios come with several important fragmented sub fields. If for the general masses, it is about father, mother, sister, brother and relatives in a family, for a minister it is about constitution, state/region/country, statistics, Diaspora, and a crude amalgamation of many related facts.

We, voters may still not be much educated everywhere to practice our voting right properly. However, the fielding candidates are not merely an apostle of a current cause affecting us but represent many salient features of our democracy which we believe to have voted them for. It is a huge mockery of democratic system when falsities like fake degree surfaces like the fake signature a terrified student attempts on one’s report card.

Though any political party cannot be adjudged on the amount of this misdemeanor but to inculcate the members on basis of some core values is appreciable and expected. India has a past history when their leaders were popular because strong ideological viewpoints. Besides the political study since the memory of freedom struggle is yet running through many families and prominent figures like Mahatma Gandhi are so very relevant even in today’s world. How exemplary were they who exudes their national values almost as a lineage that the people voted them for their personality, blindfolding. They delivered. These kind of record by the current political parties and sans ideologies, is this going to take India anywhere. Would the present day situations of diplomacy and intense negotiations which delineate from strong freedom struggle we saw will make us understand our position in the world.

These are long and wide questions and that is why we are desperate to at least exempt the country and states from such misadventure.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
