ABHAYA NUN & AMALA NUN





ABHAYA TO AMALA
Two identical cases of untimely deaths, during a spell of 23 years or so. The first was in a convent at Kottayam and now at Pala. Identical situations in both, except the places of occurrence, falling in the same district!
The case of murder of Abhaya is still on the “anvil” and the officials are still “struggling” to come out with a firm decision! The criminals are still moving in the crowd! While the victim in the first murder was a young lady, this time it is a grown up lady 69 yrs old! On a detailed thinking on the two death cases, one can form an opinion in the “unsafe” conditions prevailing in such “enclosures” under the charge of Christian Institutions. Are these suspected life risks, culminating in deaths, because of the peculiar state of these “unmarried ladies” having untold miseries in their daily life in the convent?
Whatever investigations we do, unless there is a machinery to hasten the fact finding process, this death case also will linger on for another spell of 20 years or more! The reasons may be, over powering of the inmates by external forces or by the lack of internal security? All these factors of relevance in these suspected murder cases must be investigated into thread bare details to arrive at the exact reasons for such untimely deaths.
A divine approach on the part of the catholic church leaders only will eliminate such sorrowful living conditions leading to untimely death of the inmates of these convents.

LAWFUL DECISION BY JUDGES



Lawful decision by the Judges
In India we have different tiers of courts starting from Sub courts to District courts/High court and the Ape court (Supreme Court). The court cases referred to the lower courts are often being referred to the higher courts for further review and orders.
Applying the “same rule” for “similar crimes” must normally be disposed of in the same manner! But it is often seen that the judgement of a lower court, when referred to the higher courts differ in “style and use”. That means an element of individual discretion is being applied by judges in the matter of dispensation of each case. In such cases, not only delay takes place, but also concerns over the decisions of one or more courts brings in controversial features in the judiciary.
“To err is human” is a natural occurrence and the judge has indicated this fact while dealing with the matter of deletion or abolition of the “death penalty” from our judicial system. Now if the authority can “err” in the final decision, how much more the ordinary criminal can “err” in his action?
The “killer instinct” in human beings is in-built in his nature and he/she on sudden impulses or emotion commits murder. Also there can be “cold blooded” murder. To deal with such cases, the Judiciary has to find out an alternate means of restricting “human slaughter”, if at all the existing law is amended and Death Penalty abolished. Isolation of the murderer from outside world, in restricted space in Jail till he “joins the majority” in natural course, seems to be an alternative punishment..
An instance of 60 years delay was reported by a senior advocate Sri. N.N.Sgunapalan in manorama dated 4.9.2015. It may not be perused further as the complainant and the respondent might not be alive to follow up the case! Another murder case is still pending for final disposal (Sister Abhaya case)! The agonising moments of the family members continues till date! The delay in finalising the punishment to the criminal, the system is indirectly punishing the family members of the victim for a prolonged period of time. How can we justify this type of mental torture to the relatives of the victim?. Unless our system is revamped on a higher Pedestal of Excellence in the application of Law, we may reach a point of “No return” in the Matter of JUSTICE.
DIVINITY IN our action will terminate all our problems in adjudication.

COLD BLOODED MURDER



                                                   MAN-KILLER Vs MAN-EATER
The recent incident of the attack of a village women in Wayanad by a Man-Eater (Tiger), resulting in her death, shows how we are exposed to the Wild Animals. We have had such incidents earlier also. These fatal attacks are mainly due to the Exodus of the wild animals from deep jungles to human inhabited area in search of prey which are either extinct or disappeared due to the breakdown of “Jungle Laws” by the developers and resort builders in the forest territory.
Sudden growth of structures badly affects the ecological balance of Wild life in the forest and the “Fauna & Fonda” get scared and move out of the jungles.  Adivasis or the Tribal people knew the Jungle rules and lived together without any serious damages, avoiding direct encounter with wild animals.  But the recent growth of huge structures and resorts occupying large areas of forest, the wild animals started coming out of the deep forest, in search of prey.  These animals attacked the villagers at times when they are starving. Such case only caused the death of the village woman in Wayanad .To guard against this type of dreadful situation we have to retain the “Jungle Laws” and stop interference with the natural surroundings.
Now coming back to the “Man Killers” we have had few cases in the past. These murderers were “hands in gloves” with their selected politicians for “security cover” for their dastardly crimes. They also take the shelter of renowned lawyers for legal support to come out from the clutches of Law. This unholy relation with the men in power, results in continuous cases of crimes leading to murder of innocent people also.
We were all shocked to hear the murder of the security Sri. Chandrabose of the “Shoba city “ in Trichur.   The Killer Nissam took it as “Fun or Sports” to chase up in car and kill the poor man on duty. Can we imagine such deadly assaults to an unarmed person? Even the enemies do not attack an unarmed individual. .
 It is strange to read the media report, that the Police officials did not record the statements of the victim before his death!!
Now everybody must seriously think over this kind of inhuman behaviour, (Worse than the Man Eater which killed for its food), by an individual who disobeys the “Law of the Land”.  What can be the punishment for this “cold blooded’ murder by a “Man Killer” compared to the one meted out to the “Man Eater” who killed for its food?  Let Divinity in action be our watchword in life..

DIVINE UNITY IN DIVERSITY

                                    UNITIY IN DIVERSITY- INDIA
Indian socio religious status was one of the best in the world as it tolerated the presence of different religious groups all over India.  Of late this status of religious unity is being exploited by few politicians to gain their own ends.
The faith in God is a personal right and he/she can adopt any faith he/she likes. The parental care and support will naturally prompt the descendants to continue in the same faith. But fundamentally the human beings are one and the same, and hence there cannot be any discrimination on this account.
Unity in Diversity was our watchword and we could win over the foreign rulers only due to our united efforts. Now after independence we started thinking in a deviated route due to the influence of introvert political leaders who clandestinely developed antisocial relations by injecting the religious enmity and hatred amongst the people of India.
The population growth is a natural phenomenon and cannot be restricted by any forceful orders for producing more or reducing the population. Of course our economical situation demands a small family unit to maintain social balance in life with adequate basic amenities.
The recent campaign and exhortation by fundamentalists reported in (Times of India) dated 22nd January 2015,  gives us a feeling that we are  “running at a tangent” from our policy of demographic  growth in India. Increasing the number of people in one religious sector will not produce any positive result in the peaceful existence of the people. Also the political leaders must not be under the false impression that “one faith and one religion” will settle our issue on social and economic progress.
Therefore these introvert and arrogant political leaders must stop such foolhardy thoughts and come forward to take up more responsible jobs of uniting the country  as a “well knit” nation. It is my personal request to all the public servants both in Political & administrative fields to take care of our common men, so as to enable them to stand on their own legs in the matter of their daily needs.
 “ Take care of the vital things, other things will take care of themselves” is a well known saying which we should honour in Style & Use..

DEMOCRACY and RELIGION in INDIA

                  DEMOCRATIC  RULE AFTER  67 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE

The recent agitations leading to disruption and adjournment of the Parliament and State assembly sessions, give rise to a feeling that we are undoing the whole principle of Democracy! Expressions in words and gesticulations are seen very often  going beyond the acceptable level of behavior of parliamentarians in the parliament gatherings. I have a feeling that, the fundamental theory of Democratic rule is forgotten, resulting in Chaos and uncertain moments in our political arena.

Religion and Politics are two independent units. They should not be mixed up each other causing dissimilar thinking amongst the different religious denominations and political groups. The government must be impartial in its dealings without any religious priority. Religious faith is purely a personal matter and no one should encroach the rights of an individual in his decision to get attached to a particular formation of “like minded “people.

  A Divine approach is essential in the matter of Personal Belief of people in one particular Religion and no compulsion or external forces must be at work in this direction... 

Mutual respect and tolerance amongst the political parties only can result in a peaceful administration of any Government set up. Extrovert thinking and action coupled with mutual respect only can streamline the administration and put it on a better pedestal for clean Democracy.

Let us all strain hard to achieve this END>>

ARE THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN POLITICS/

ARE THE RELIIGIOUS COMMUNITIES IN POLITICS?
The Religious leaders nowadays are “beating about the Bush. I have a feeling that they do not keep track of their assignments in enriching the sense of Morality and Godliness in Men & Women. Instead of concentrating on their intended duties, they undo their responsibility in correcting the way of life of the people around, and interfere with the political aspects of the society.

We have the elected representatives to upkeep the political/social and cultural needs of the people and create an atmosphere of peaceful existence of them with a common line of thought and action.  The dual nature of man always causes problems to the administrators and therefore they have to strike a “least line of resistance” in the Government machinery in formulating Policies to cater for all.

The Religious heads must concentrate on the daily lives of common man, spend time with them both in Sorrows and Happiness and instill in them the spirit of living together with mutual care and support. Constant counselling on moral side of life is an essential component in the religious teachings of all the religions.  According to the Bible, Jesus Christ went round the places and kept company with all people without any discrimination and shared the life of poor and marginalized sections of the society.
 Of late we find that church leaders who are to follow the footsteps of Christ, are never seen with the common people to attend to their personal necessities. They are always under “cover” and do not expose freely to the public gathering like marriage reception and  do not participate  or share  the  company of the people in the common feast .. Why such distance is maintained by them, when our MASTER was with everyone during His Sojourn on this Earth
The Religious heads must stop the “Dog in the Manger” policy and confine themselves in the Religious aspect and teach the people to lead a life of tranquility & peace, instead of running about and criticizing the actions of the Government in the matters of “Policies & Procedures”
 The press conferences and stage shows must stop and they must come back to the Biblical Teachings and lead the people in the right directions that GOD want us to live.
Our Religious hierarchy is slowly denting the fabrics of “unity in action” by all the religious denominations..
 Politicians will look after the common needs of everyone, diligently and thoughtfully applying the Rule of Common Sense and the existing Law of the land..
A Divine approach to our problems will not go unanswered, as GOD is GREAT and above all understanding>>>

BAD POLITICIANS

POLITICAL INVASION IN SOCIAL LIFE
UNITY IN DIVERSITY IS OUR WATCH WORD WHICH IS FOUNDED ON A STRONG BASE IN OUR CONSTITUTION. ALL OUR POLITICIANS MUST BE AWARE OF THIS FACT WHENEVER THEY SPEAK EITHER IN PARLIAMENT/ASSEMBLY OR IN PUBLIC PLACES.

THE RECENT UTTERANCES OF SMT: SADHVI NIRANJAN JYOTHI IN THE PARLIAMENT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A “SOBER STATEMENT”. SHE HAS GONE BEYOND LIMITS AND SPOKE AGAINST THE SOCIAL/RELIGIOUS STRUCTURE OF INDIA. I HAVE NOT COME ACROSS SUCH THOUGHTLESS SPEECH FROM RESPONSIBLE PERSONS LIKE, MPs MLAs  & OTHER POLITICIANS.

MINISTER OF HER NATURE IS UNFIT FOR SUCH POSITION AND I MAY REQUEST THE AUTHORITIES TO REMOVE HER FROM THE MINISTRY. DURING MY 80 YEARS OF LIFE, IN THIS MULTIFACETED COUNTRY OF OURS, I HAVE NEVER HEARD SUCH, UNBECOMING WORDS FROM A MINISTER OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OR FROM ANYBODY FOR THAT MATTER.

 THIS KIND OF “LOW PROFILE” PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO REPRESENT THE COMMON PEOPLE.  SUCH MEN & WOMEN ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE “TERRORISTS”.
APOLOGY AFTER THE “IRREPARABLE” DAMAGE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. ANYBODY CAN CAUSE INJURY TO THE “SOCIAL FABRICS” AND THEN SAY “SORRY” :
THAT IS ARROGANCE AND NOT GENUINE CONFESSION FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE “HEART”.
BEWARE OF SUCH POLITICIANS ,WHO DO NOT HAVE A "DIVINE APPROACH" TO THEIR COMMITMENTS TO THE PEOPLE OF INDIA..
