Many call it a delusion,many an illusion. But the Modi Government has dawned on one of the eternal opportunities to cure the world of its maladies. At times, when we live, doesn’t really portray a really exquisite site. Religious opportunism, unwanted quota-isation of the educational ladder throngs as an impediment for the advancement and evolution of a highly youthful nation. In such a position, stretching the hands and grooving your body is a better edible than flexing your muscles to show your might. The Rajpath in New Delhi was a cool observer to what many have already painted as the next big Guinness World Record. Well, Yoga makes your body bubble with joy, offering a plethora of opportunities to rejuvenate your body. Exercises have fructified the logic of “Serving the body is serving God” into a more realisable dream. But Yoga’s fortune seems to betray its credentials.
The initial yoga centric political onslaught on the bars of religious lines only showed the wrath of narrow-minded orbituary on our everyday life. While the Chinese were welcoming yoga and Ayurveda, we seemed to still harp on the foreign traits of Vaastu and Fengshui. Not only was it a typical Indian mannerism to scoff at everything indigenous,it also proves the self denial which forces ex czars to seek treatment at Lisbon. The cause of concern lies at once at the role of the opposition in the country. The matter of constructive criticism has been lost in vain for quite a while and neither do I blame anyone but the politicians for that. In fact when you see the gradual transmigration of the land of consensus to that of confrontation,you will not see anyone but the Congress Party responsible for that.
Come to 1975. The year which only plagiarised the lack of tolerance of a so called party of swaraj and independence. In 1929, when the Lahore Congress under Nehru gave a call of purna swaraj,little would others have thought that the same party will proclaim the darkest hours of democracy.If you believe Subramanian Swamy,(the ex Janata Party chief and now a BJP leader) the Cambridge University doesn’t have a record of a certain Rahul Gandhi’s thesis. Hopefully, Jitender Singh Tomar did not buy him a degree from Cambridge-a P.H.D degree if I may add. Even in 2015,when so many countries excluding our fidgety rival is practising yoga,the opposition including the Congress hyper-enthusiasts seems to have a problem. Lalu Yadav’s tweet pic showed a photo of Pandit Nehru and Modi practising yoga with contrasting assignments-something the convicted out on bail RJD leader branded as originality vs plagiarism.
At a moment of national pride, reservations about the present Government is understandable. The Government according to me has failed to typically control the agro crisis and its impact.Fringe elements have been given far more autonomy,than what their anatomy deserves. But to overnight,see everything black even beneath the ultraviolet rays is somewhat farcical. The opposition is there to check the Government,not to break the national pride.Cynicism it is said was one of the major reasons for Amitabh Bachchan’s downfall in the mid 80’s. The superstar that the man was could not prevent his cynic mindset from taking the highway.Big B will point at every film of his saying”Yeh film meri toh nahin chalegi” The moral justification or ethical compensation can never be awarded to the ruling coterie. But when the rulers fight themselves,the message a country is trying to send falls into the hollowness of casualties.
Even the rather confrontationist AAP supremo joined the national cadre of politicians in supervising the innate connection of soul and body. Siddaramaiah applauded the Modi Government gesture. The Karnataka Government will soon accomadate yoga in the educational schedule. However Tarun Gogoi and Oomen Chandy evaded a direct consensus.Even Pythagoras deserves a bit of exercise. E=mc2 of Einstein will not assault Robert Vadra,if RaGa exercises his mind a bit. At the end of the day,it’s the cerebrum which Rahul needs to concentrate on after throwing husky fire balls at the Modi Government regarding the Food Park in Amethi. Perhaps,yoga can modify his fitness to take on Harsimrat Kaur Badal on the issue on the floor of Parliament. What at this juncture,we require is positive and sensible criticism,not opportunistic,downright, Frankenstein surrogate. Politics should be debated,but lets life be celebrated. Yogi Adityanath ji-yoga can also perform Mentos’ job-Zubaan pe rakhe Laagam……. You may try it once also. Good for your health!
last one anecdote-The Muslims and Christians are being diverted from the real sense of Indianness. Someone or somebody must be silently cajoling such an idea. Then. Mr. Jairam Ramesh please extend your statement further from just saying-Congress is not opposed to Yoga. Don’t be an onlooker. Lets make for a while,before we can break into the politics of hate mongering…..
