Learning, at the age of 72; Edited.

*******

[ NOTE: This is a PS, correcting my former word ‘Immigrant’ to Migrant, please. ]

Hello, my Dear Friends,

Had been concentrating on Facebook and Twitter, as they take lesser time to write.

Feel inspired to start working on my good old Blog again.

About this ‘learning…’

Had been showing what I found wrong, and had thought that people would simply and automatically understand that Doing the Opposite was the Solution.

But Bill Gates, one of whose posts I was reading of late, suggests that we, (in my case particularly ‘I’), say it out, in black and white as it were, what could be the solutions.

With India’s Corona lock down, it has meant that thousands of Immigrant Migrant workers want to return home, deciding to Walk(!), Hundreds of kilometres, as Trains are cancelled; – along with small children.

Youth and others are being harassed by the police, when these are trying to return.

And this is what I wrote to the Indian Prime Minister’s Office:

@PMOIndia

1. Pl arrange for FOOD along the way, for those trying to return home.

2. Army trucks could help them for at least for part of journey.

3. Army shd be under STRICT instructions not to Molest, particularly the women and girls.

[ Army men have been known to use ‘Rape’ as a tool, for what they would say bringing out the truth, as well as… ]

Response of Women of the North East of India, for Younger women being raped:

Do You think I am improving? 🙂

Love and Regards, and Stay Safe.

Does India Need a ‘Surgical Strike’ day?

*******

Shame on #bjp and #modi.

What about those who lost their very Lives and Limbs in all of India’s other Military Endeavours?

#ArmyDay could and Should have been Celebrated; not in support of Wars, but as a Mark of Respect to our Heroes who give their Very Lives for Us, and to Honour Veterans.

#SurgicalStrike being used by #bjp and #modi for Political gains.

And, by the way, #bjp and #modi, What happened to the #OneRankOnePension business?

*******

Action!

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 Tamil Nadu police has become Notorious for its Excesses during the last few years, particularly during the current Regime, that of the ADMK party.

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.
