I started noticing the Excessive mining of sand from the rivers of TN just a few years ago. Thinking about it, understood how this has led to TN approaching a Desert-like situation.
I had thought that the Water situation would reach a Crisis in about 15 years. Reports say that this is going to happen in 2025, ie, just in 8 years. …Watch Nat Geo.
Our Carelessness in Observation, and Inaction, are what are leading to these terrible situations.
In my first picture, I have written that the Mother Monkey taught its young ones NOT to see Reality, as that is Painful, NOT to hear Reality, but rather to pay attention to propaganda, and NOT to Speak out, as that leads to Sedition charges! …And Monkeys Are living that way.
But the Lion-Mother taught Just the Opposite. And that is Why they are Lions.
We had not given attention to the Looting of Sand (by the Administration), and that has led to an Artificial Water Scarcity, the Death of Lakhs of Trees, No Farming even in the Delta belts, in TN.
Actually, even Justice, Freedom, etc, are in Peril. We just need to Notice, and to Act.
If there is Justice, …Everything is OK! But alas, there is No Justice; Anywhere in the World.
In India, the Sheer Delay in Justice, People in Jails Without their cases having been heard for Decades, judges delaying even the delivering of Verdicts, etc, show that there is NO JUSTICE.
People do not talk about it. judges should not think that this is out of respect. It is out of Fear, which is a Shame. Only judges can change this situation.
THE POLICE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THEY ARE NOT THE ROWDIES OF THE ADMINISTRATION, AND THAT THEIR SALARIES COME FROM THE PEOPLE, THE CITIZENS, NOT THE POLITICIANS.
POLICE HAVE TO ACT ACCORDING TO THEIR CONSCIENCE, EVEN REFUSING TO OBEY ORDERS IF NECESSARY.
Irom Sharmila had fasted for 16 Years (!), for the Repeal of the AFSPA, the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, through which Excesses had been committed, even unto Rape of Civilians by the Army. (Who will speak about these, except the few like Yesudas?) …These did.
Women in the North East of India, protested thus.
SOLDIERS SHOULD ACT ACCORDING TO THEIR CONSCIENCE TOO.
Hoisting of the Flag and Military March-pasts do not make it a Republic or a Democracy. The granting of the Kachatheevu Island to Lanka, the Tasmac wine shops, the Looting of Sand, all show that what is happening is Politics, Not Democracy.
POLITICIANS HAVE TO DO WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT. AND WE HAVE TO MAKE THEM DO IT.
WE have to PAY ATTENTION and ACT.
