"BHAYA BENA HOU NA PREETEE" - PUBLIC-ANNA-MEDIA MOVEMENT AGAINST INDIAN CORRUPTION!

August 31,2011 at 04:20 PM IST
Although I don't agree blindly to EVERY thing being uttered by ANNA-HAZARE or HIS CAMPAIGN/SUPPORTERS YET I DO BELIEVE IN FIRMLY LIKE AS DO MAJORITY OF THE TEEMING MILLIONS OF THE MOTHER INDIA - THE 3 BROAD DEMANDS OF THE JANA LOKAPAL BILL MUST BE NON-NEGOTIABLE!

"BHAYA BENA HOU NA PREETEE." CHOUPAI in RAMACHARITAMANAS.The Meaning:Without instilling the demonstrated fear in the opponent, one CANNOT get the respect/affinity from the opponent.The Example: The "PUBLIC ANNA-MOVEMENT" EVOKED RESPECT FROM political establishment by instilling [WITTINGLY or UNWITTINGLY] the fear of the CROWD overrunning the parliament and the Houses of MPs, COMPELLING THESE PARLIAMENTARIANS LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE PUBLIC AGAINST CORRUPTION...!

Excellent Doubt...!ANSWER: when the sea-god did not give way/passage to Lord Rama's army to cross the ocean to reach Sri Lanka despite repeated prayers/requests from Lord Rama himself then Lord Rama had to threaten the sea-god UPON WHICH THE SEA-GOD MOST WEEKLY/HUMBLY CAME OUT, BOWED BEFORE LORD RAMA, REPENTED AND GAVE PASSAGE TO LORD RAMA's ARMY.NOW, IT HAS 2 LEVELS OF MEANING: [1]SPIRITUAL= The meaning that which you have understood correctly. [2]GENERAL = Lord Rama's life has been looked to for guidance by Indians for generations...!IN PRACTICAL TERMS THIS MEANS, THE OPPONENT DOES SHOW NO RESPECT TO YOU DESPITE YOUR BEING MORE POWERFUL THAN YOUR OPPONENT IF YOU CONTINUE BEGGING/REQUESTING YOUR OPPONENT TO ACCEPT YOUR CORRECT/JUST DEMAND....IT MEANS YOUR HUMILITY IS TAKEN AS YOUR WEAKNESS BY YOUR OPPONENT....NOW, PUBLIC-ANNA-MOVEMENT....PARLIAMENTARIANS KNOW WELL THAT IN THE CURRENT GLOBAL SCENARIO,INDIAN PUBLIC IS VERY/MORE POWERFUL THAN PARLIAMENTARIANS...STILL, THESE PARLIAMENTARIANS LIKE THE SEA-GOD HAD DECIDED TO IGNORE THE PUBLIC OPINION TILL SUCH TIME AS THIS 13 DAY ANTI-CORRUPTION PUBLIC MOVEMENT HAPPENED!...PUBLIC MOOD WAS EXPLOSIVE. PUBLIC WAS JUST WAITING FOR SOME ONE TO TAKE THE LEAD, WHICH CAME IN THE FORM OF THE ANNA,TEAM ANNNA AND THE INDIAN MEDIA [ESPECIALLY THE TV CHANNELS]....REST ALL IS AS THEY SAY NOW A PART OF THE COLLECTIVE NATIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS....!

I ADVISE YOU TO READ FOR YOURSELF THE TEXT 'RAMACHARITAMANAS', NOW. DURING SCHOOL DAYS, YOUR TEACHERS PROBABLY HAD NOT ENCOURAGED YOU TO READ THIS TEXT....SOMETIMES, VERY OFTEN WE TEND TO UNDERSTAND NARROW MEANINGS HANDED DOWN TO US BY OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM AND RESULT IS WE ARE UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE FULL CONTEXT OF THE GIVEN COUPLET/CHOUPAI, ECT...!

"...anything at all that instills the fear of God in the salivating hordes of moneymakers growing in our systems – is not something from which anyone can be “left out.” - MASTERFUL/SOUL of your article - I SALUTE IT!
