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..

THE GAME OF CRICKET


ATTACKING CRICKET?
The new "generation cricket game" has gone beyond the olden days glorious playing in good sportsmanship of maintaining the team discipline to the highest order.
The present cricketing is almost a "Close Quarter Battle" between the bowler and the batsman. Earlier the bowling was "Under Arm" action and later on moved on to " Over Arm" delivery.
The recent fast bowling action varies with different bowlers. Instead of the vertical circle over the shoulders the tilted circular arm movements always tend to "Throwing action" leading to injury to the batsman above the belt.
Moreover the technique in this game is not only the fast ball, but intelligent and slow ball which makes the batsman in dual mind in hitting & make mistakes.

The recent untimely Death of Phil Dughes, proves that uncontrolled and bullet fast balls can "kill" the batsman on the spot. I feel that, to safe guard such mishap of losing life in this renowned field game, the " under Arm" bowling action must be reintroduced in all the cricket matches. No spinner can ever KILL a batsmen even if he wants to >>>.. A divinity in action in bowling fast bouncers will greatly help the batsman facing the ball moving at Bullet speed..

PROHIBITION IN KERALA


                    DISCUSSIONS ON BAR LICENCE

Dialogues on the issue of bar license to hotels were continuously going on for the past few weeks. But so far no decision could be taken by the Government due to different approaches of the political leaders. This was mainly lingering on the acceptable standard of the BARS that can be permitted to sell liquor. What are the standard specifications for sale of liquor was the query raised by the honorable court.  IsThe quality of liquor and its degree of Intoxication, the criteria for standard alcoholic drinks? What I could see on the bottle is only the remarks “Alcohol is injurious to health” and also the % of alcohol in the content for the guidance of the people who go to the liquor shop or to the BAR for a drink!

Presently we have umpteen problems in daily life in respect of safety in TRAVEL/BAD ROADS WITH POT HOLES & PITS throughout the state and also Price rise in all commodities both edible and non edible.. Instead of attending to these severe social evils, we are trying to fix up standards for bar hotels to serve liquor! The officials must fix up the PRIORITY for mitigating the hazards of daily life of the common man and take prompt action instead of “BEATING ABOUT THE Bush”. We hear, almost daily on fatal accidents on the ROADS/Railways/AIRPLANES/ and also deaths due to SUICIDES/COLD BLOODED MURDER/ and diseases causing loss of human life more than the damages due to drinking from Bar hotels..

On a careful study of the human nature prevailing in the society, it can be seen that “SOBER” people are causing dangerous situations by plotting and scheming against their rivals and planning to eliminate them.  But those who are given to drinking will not be causing direct injury to others unless provoked..

 

 Such people are called ENEBRITES (who are addicted to drinks). From time immemorial liquor was in use right from the PRIMITIVE MAN to the present generation. Therefore I feel that liquor must be sold in every shop like any other things so that availability may result in psychological reduction in the purchase of drinks costing very high which will affect their purse!

 More than that, continuous COUNSELLING at home/schools and through other media, highlighting the EVIL EFFECTS of alcohol is required to bring in awareness in the minds of those addicted to heavy consumption of liquor. Initially the use of alcoholic drinks in a MODERATE WAY to be introduced and thereafter, in course of time some of the people will definitely come back as  better social beings.  In case the Liquor is banned throughout, then they will resort to SPURIOUS DRINKS which will result in fatal calamities. We have to “play a different tune” with a Psychological approach to arrest the tendency of people from this social menace..
