Well, my friends of blogsphere, I am not yet dead, though at 70 it does seem closer. I am going to share how does it feel on reaching this landmark.
When I sit back and reflect, I do feel I could have done differently in some situations to save the day. However I feel happy that I have not harmed anyone deliberately in my life and have done full justice to the job I was in. I always made it a point to ensure wellbeing of my subordinates so they could give undivided attention to their work. It is not that I am saint or a role model, I have made some mistakes and also acted under wrong influence at times. I have committed my share of sins, though not major ones, which I now feel could have been avoided. Enough of my story.
Coming to present and what is going on in our beloved country these days. I am sure that you will agree with me that for a successful and happy marriage not only both partners have to contribute but their parents and siblings too. You must be wondering if I have gone senile at this age to bring out this time tested principle. No, I have not gone round the bend. Let me give you my reasons for stating example of marriage. Living in a multi-cultural, multi- religious and multi-racial society is like marriage making each individual responsible to contribute to make society healthy, happy and secure. And the part played by parents and sibling for successful & happy marriage, falls on the shoulders of religious and political heads to lead followers to contribute towards healthy, happy and secure society. I invite you to tell me if you agree with me.
Reasons for returning of honours & awards is matter of an individual’s choice but I would like to ask those in news recently for the same to search their souls for following :
a) Did they raise their voice during 1984 carnage of Sikhs or Godhra?
b) Did they come out to speak against terrorists and those who nurtured them for bomb blasts in Mumbai/Delhi or any other place leading to deaths of so many innocents including children?
c) Have they ever written anything or made any film propagating how to harmoniously live in a multi-cultural, multi-religious or multi-racial society?
Well, may I request you all to give your views on what I have said.
