Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Missing The Disease ?

Symptoms :

Demonstrations / Agitations / Morchas / Militancy ( add your choice )

Disease  :

Injustice / Inequity / Exploitation / Corruption / Denial of Service ( add )

History  :

*  In pre-historic times ( stone age ), everybody had equal " opportunity "

*  In Medieval ages , Kings / Lords enriched themselves with slave labour

*  During last 200 years, machines replaced slaves and rich/poor gap widened

*  Rich people ( later, Banks owned by rich ) lent money to other rich , enabling them to
    control " Natural Resources / Means of Production / Means for creation of Wealth "

*  Rich / Poor gap became a Moat surrounding invisible " Forts /  Islands of Riches "
*  Religion became a tool in the hands of the Rich who asked priests to preach :

    " Resign to your Destiny - even if that means living in abject poverty . It is God's will "

*  Kings ( and later on States ) too became subservient to the CAPITALIST ORDER , serving
    the interests of the rich only . After all , the Rich could finance those land-grabbing wars !

*  75 years ago TV arrived and it started exposing the life-styles of those rich to the poor

*  Then came Internet / Mobile / Social Media and poor got appalled to know how rich/ poor
    gap continued to widen with arrival of each year , when finally it came to a stage where
    ONE percent of World's people garnered 90 percent of World's wealth !

*  Poor also learned how the State Bureaucracy conspired with the rich to deny them even
    their " Right to a dignified Life " - by denying them " Equal Opportunities "

*  How else can we explain , Naxalite movement / Reservation movement etc ?

I hope the Bureaucracy wakes up and recognizes that " Intolerance is only a Symptom "

Inequality / Injustice / Inequity are the Disease  !

Suppressing the symptom does not make the disease to go away

It only resurfaces in another part of this body that we call , " Society "

Please , do not wait till the poor / dying people , sleeping on footpaths outside our homes , just walk into our bedrooms one day and say :

" We have had enough  !  We are not going to leave / vacate your comfortable homes "

And when 100 million poor decide to occupy our homes simultaneously , no police or military will be able to stop them !

Ye ! The Rich , the Powerful , the Elected  , the Youth ,  of India  !

Open your eyes and see how millions of poor / starving people from war-torn Syria / Iraq / Afghanistan / Yemen / Nigeria / Congo / Libya  etc are OVER-RUNNING the Europe

They are crossing a moat called Mediterranean Sea and nothing can stop them  !

Our bedrooms are not that far  !

How long will we close our eyes to some 3600 + children ( under age 5 ) , die EVERYDAY due to starvation , in our beloved BHARAT MATA  ?

Please , do not charge me with sedition

I have learned my patriotism / non violence at the feet of BAPU and fought the British for our freedom in 1942

Now , it is  YOUR  turn to free  OUR  country from POVERTY

Bharat Mata ki Jay  !
