There are Many instances where In-Experience is PREFERRED! What Experience do We Demand from Our Toddler? What E can We carry to Our First Job? Would Not Both Spouses Like their Partners to be Virgins?
I am going to write on the AAP, the Aam Aadmi Party, a newly formed one in India, brought into being just to Combat Corruption, which has turned India into a Sieve. Nearly 50% of Public Monies is eaten up by those in the Administration. The Poor Infrastructure, So Well pointed out to jaya by Bill Gates, in the form of Poor Roads, Poor Electrical and Water Supply, etc, is Proof that those who Sanction and Distribute Govt monies eat up a Large part of it.
You go to an office, and Bribery, Expected and delivered, often with Silent Curses, is a Way of Life. Corporates have to pay HUGE bribes if they expect Licences and such. Crony Capitalism is the Enemy for both the Rest of Business and for the Citizen, because of its effect.
If You ask me WHY, in a Blog named Love, Happiness and Peace, I am writing about Social Affairs, I would answer You, it is out of Love. As an Example, the Dearth of Water in our Area is something that ‘Burns’ in my Heart. Lakhs (100s of thousands) of Coconut trees have dried up and Died; Paddy on the point of Fructifying starts Dying for Lack of Water, and such.
The photographs above show Two Live Coconut Trees, and FIVE Dead ones! All these are Just around Our Ashram. There are Many More (Dead ones) just in the vicinity.
The Lack of Water is NOT affecting me Personally, nor will it do so in my Life time. But in a Scant 20 years or so, Water is going to become a Phenomenal Problem. Being a Sannyasi and a Catholic Priest, I do not have Children of my Own. But I am like the Grandfather who kept Planting Saplings.
Doing Something Meaningful and Useful is What Brings Happiness. And Peace. Hence writing on Social Issues in a Blog named Love, Happiness and Peace is both Justified, and above all, to be Emulated. This is where We see Love Combines with politics!
The Ganges Floods Every Year. Joining the Ganges to the Kaveri in the South of India had been a Project considered for Decades, but Never Executed because of the Absence of political Will.
The Administrations which had Charge of the Country for Decades, in the form of major political parties, are Chock Full of Experienced politicians. And AAP is just a Baby, a mere 15 months or so Old. Experienced politicos have developed control over their Words, Speech, Face and Body Language, etc, and are past masters of filling the air with blah. If ever You have the misfortune to listen to them, You come home and wonder Why people criticize them at all.
For instance, India’s ruling party is citing the thousands of schools opened, the metros brought into function, the telecom services added, etc, as proofs of their ‘achievement.’ But there are Sickening Crowds in the Trains and the Buses, which are the Lot of at least 90% of the Population of the Country.
The Schools are churning out Youth in the Hundreds of Thousands every year, but Many of them do not have even the 3 R’s. Our Youth are Experts at twiddling at the Cell Phone, but the Education system has not made them into Original Thinkers, or Even Thinkers.
The Military has Poor Gear, but the politicians have ALL become Richer Many Times. The pic at left shows How Poorly Our Soldiers are equipped compared to the Others. The one at right shows some of India’s Richest politicos. A politico from pune, dutta phuge, has a rs. 1.25 Crore Shirt! Reports say that some politicos increase their wealth by SIX times and more during their tenure of 5 years. …Of WHAT use have our ‘Experienced’ politicians been to US?
Experience has its Value. But Give me HONEST people who will not Play the Fool with the Future of Our Children. The Nation has Enough Experienced Personnel in Every Field to Guide the Administration. Yes, AAP ministers do not know the lingo of Sweet Talk; How to Keep Smiling while Stabbing You in the Back. AAP ministers are So Eager, they seem Hotheads. But AAP seems to be the Answer to India’s Problems just now. It needs to be supported. We can do that by Joining the party.
It is Indeed criticized Right and Left, Every Day, Many Times, especially by the media. It is bashed if it Does, and bashed if it Doesn’t. The latest charge, as I heard it last night over the Headlines Today, was, something like: ‘The AAP was always criticizing, talking hard; Why is it changing its ways now?!’ And if the AAP is Such a Useless party, WHY ALLOT SO MUCH TIME TO CRITICIZING IT?
The Time, Attention, and Care given to AAP’s Criticism – All Very Professional, Very Well Thought Out, and Very High Brow – Shows that the AAP, within this Short span of 15 MONTHS or so, has become a Threat to the existing political parties, the corrupt in the courts and the offices, and to Crony Capitalists. And That is Why these are taking the Time and Effort to come down on AAP like a Ton of Bricks and a Pack of Wolves.
I will take the IN-Experienced AAP as Opposed to the present ‘Experienced’ Looters. Any Day.
