Suggest: Relay fasts by Religious Leaders to sustain anti-corruption movement
Revolution – Final Goal of Baba’s Fast and How can that be achieved:
By Nimesh Dikshit
Recent news is Sri Sri is in Hardwar, asking Baba and his followers to break the fast. I also heard that he even announced from England that Baba should not do fasting. Well I do agree with Sri Sri in that too – that only Baba’s fast is not going to change the heart or break the knees of Congress Party. Instead Congress Party will help purchase ticket to heaven for Baba at tax payer’s money. Now its too late in the game to retreat. The War has been declared and Hindus will have to fight it to save Mother India. The Swayamsevaks of Mother India must retaliate peacefully against the state power unleashed by an Italian Congress and Sonia Sevaks.
But now the war has been declared. Baba went on peaceful fast and police brutality that followed, was a clear Jihad started by Italian Congress Party. Now they are not going to go back foot. Their only agenda will be to destroy Baba completely, by hook or by crook. The person who has such a big empire – its very easy for IT guys to find problems. Each problem will be magnified by the Media which is on the payroll of congress party. That is their job – and they will do it well. The fact that they could change the mind of a Yogi like Sri Sri Ravishankar is good enough to understand the power of Media. Any retreat at this point is a death of any future agitation against this government and that can not be allowed. Its too late.
What someone should advice Sri Sri instead ? What should Sri Sri really do? How this movement can be made long lasting movement? Its true that this movement is premature in the sense that next Lok Sabha election is in 2014 and Congress knows very well that people will forget the police brutality on the innocent, peaceful, Hindus who were fasting for the whole day. Congress also knows that neither Baba nor his followers can sustain 3 year long campaign by fasting. So then how can this movement drag on for next 2-3 years and gather force and awaken Hindus? To answer that, I would like to put forward a little observation of the problem of Hindu Society.The reason I use the word Hindu is only Hindus care for Hindustan others have their affiliation somewhere else.
Problem of Hindu Society lies in the multi sect philosophy all of which ultimately concur to Vedic Principles. This is a Strength of Hindu Society but at the same time that divides the society many folds. Coupled with that the greed and possessive nature of Human Being from which these Sadhus and Sants are not liberated. They suffer with the attachment to their capital, both financial and human. They will not like to have joint programs with other Sadhus or allow their followers’ kids to mingle with the children of other Sadhus’ followers. I have personal experience of this weird behavior of Sadhus. Any follower goes to other Sadhu or Teacher is looked upon as a blow to his/her bottom line. Most religio-spritual organizations suffer with this human nature. That’s why Guru ji of Sangh, started an organization called VHP – whose sole work is to unite these separate sects and bring them on one platform. Sangh is a non religo-spiritual organization so it does not have direct competition with them and with its large following of sincere swayamsevaks makes the best organization for facilitating this platform. Despite that non competing nature of VHP, it still has this uphill battle for last 46 years, and has found some success, which is of help only for particular occasions – and then they go their merry way without caring for each other’s organization.
Here I feel Baba’s agitation can unite these separate sects if the heads of these sects remove their possessive nature out of their soul and mind. Sri Sri who I know for sure is not the one who possess this nature, must be made aware of this grand possibility of Hindu Revival by creating unstoppable Chain Reaction. How? Sri Sri who is so well accepted across the society and who has following worldwide – instead of asking Baba to stop the fast, should have joined the fast when Baba is in Hospital. He should have asked Baba and his followers to stop fast and started fast of his own, replacing Baba, on the same platform where Baba was doing the fast Not only that he should have asked his followers worldwide to go on token fasts. All black, white, brown and yellow skinned people would have observed fast worldwide and at 24 hour notice. I know personally, and have visited Sri Sri’s camps many times, to say confidently that just like Baba’s followers thousands of followers of Sri Sri would have joined another week long fast. Baba would have been out of the fast, but Congress would not feel the victory – since other 100,000 plus people would be fasting for the following week. In meantime some other guru, shankaracharyas or teachers would go to Patanjali Vidyapeeth and join the fast and Sri Sri and his Followers would break the fast. These could have created a chain reaction. And followers of all Hindu sects, gurus, swamis, acharyas would have united under one cause to free Mother India from the shackles of the falsehood. This does not have to all happen in onlyHardwar, such fasting should go on in all temples, maths and other spiritual places. While motherIndiais an abode of 1000s of gurus and swamis – only 108 swamis are needed to continue this agitation for two years. Once the mala, whose beads are each of these gurus – who went on a weeklong fast is completed, these gurus should go all out on road and Congress would lose its sleep for the next election. They will not be able to bring back the black money – otherwise Sonia would have no other option but to RUN and Run fast, so that they will have to choose a defeat instead. Or they have to declare the emergency like in seventies – there by creating the ultimate blow to Congress Party and its 60 years old regime. And this will not be a civil agitation without any spirituality as in 1970s but the one guided and lead by spiritual and traditionally Hindu Sanskriti. After two years a modest, honest, visionary leader who does not have any ties that can spoil his image or make him to hesitate from taking the harsh decision should be declared as a next PM candidate from any party of their choice. And all gurus, sadhus and swamis should put their force behind that person. That way all the Hindus will unite. If 25% of the block Hindu vote bank can be created – there is no stopping for a Hindu Party to win the next election. And the goal to bring back black money, making of laws that put the politicians, businessmen and media moghuls behind bars can be achieved by a stroke of a pen.
But alas, we at this point do not have any sadhu who would join Baba in his fight against Corruption. Since they will feel following the leadership of Baba Ramdev. Instead they would want to look wiser then Baba by asking Baba to stop fast, without thinking how can he do that? And that is the Irony of Sadhu Society that there is no neutral group that can accept this as a solution and bring Baba out of his fast without letting Congress celebrate their victory over Baba’s crusade against Corruption. Also another bright side of this is – it will not require Baba to prepare a protective force. But who will take the lead to tell Sri Sri to go on fast and relieve Baba from his Dharana and still feel victorious. So that Mother India can be ushered back into Her Past Glory. That is the Need of the Hour.
