Difficult message. Have often wondered what it takes to motivate a person to go and get himself killed.

And my reply might just have some weight, as below:

Now that is a Beautiful thought, my Dear Ankur.

…In genuine situations, where and when Freedom and Welfare were at risk, as in the movie ‘300,’ fiery speeches and good leadership were needed for that.

…In many other instances, it is taking advantage of the circumstances of a person, who had merely joined for economic reasons, or maybe even out of a love for Country, and turn this around for personal gain. Much of this is happening today.

And to motivate (though this might be a wrong word, more like ‘force,’) a person to go and get himself killed, all it needs is a …Heart of Stone. 😦

A Teacher's Reflections

Our Memory Garden at school is a raised bed of beauty; flowers, sculptures, American flags, and a collection of painted rocks, all to mark classroom pets and loved ones who have died over the years. The garden sits quietly as children run and play alongside. It is welcoming, and children who visit inevitably ask questions.

Additionally, there is a flat paving stone with a carved dragonfly in remembrance of Taylor, a little boy in our school who died some years ago. Taylor adored dragonflies. Yesterday I noticed the garden needed weeding, and sat on the low stone wall to take care of Taylor’s dragonfly. Emma came over to ask what I was doing. She wanted to help me weed. That was the beginning of a remarkable series of events about dying.

Yes – dying – the word that scares teachers and parents. The “D” word. Something they hope they’ll never…

Democracy is More than…

Democracy is More than Voting once in Five Years. IF You and I hold that Democracy is the Best possible process of Governance, then, I beg to state that We Have to Keep a Keen Eye on How things are being managed.

It would mean a question of Using Many faculties of Ours, Our Observation, Thinking and Action. Apathy and Inaction leads to Death, literally.

This site of https://lovehappinessandpeace.wordpress.com and I, Yesudas, as its Author had covered the myriad Rapes and Gang Rapes that had been Proliferating our Indian scene. A search for the word Rape on this site would show up enough articles.

Bengaluru, which is one of India’s better known, Ancient, Lovely and Advanced cities, saw Multiple cases of Molestation, Rape, and Alas, even the Murder of Children, often less than 10 years old. Do We still want to say that these will happen Just to Others?

*******

Writing about all the above, I had written that We Need to be Involved in what is happening around us, as such things could happen to Us, too.

We Need to:

  • Keep a Fair Hold on the Rein of things.
  • Ask politicos and officials what they have been doing and why things are not moving.
  • Join Protests and Marches, Show that So many of Us Care, (politicos are concerned Just with Numbers).
  • Question, Castigate, Criticise, Demand, and Specify Just What We Want, and What Needs to be Done.

*******

Failure in these, as We see today, ends even in Death. Actions Enumerated above will protect Democracy, and Us.
