The Sad Plight of Indian Democracy

The BJP government of India is embarking on a mad and treacherous path by incorporating anti-democratic laws. First came the draconian law of GST were taxes were hiked to gigantic proportions. Now they have passed the Citizen Amendment Act which seeks to obliterate the democratic and secular credentials of India which is enshrined in the Indian Constitution. The BJP govt. is following the policy of divide and rule and democracy is bleeding with festering wounds. The students in various universities were conducting peaceful protests and they were mercilessly assaulted by the police. The police marched into the university library and one student has lost his eye in the ensuing riot. In many states internet connection was terminated. This shows the callous attitude of the BJP govt. in an-other-wise peaceful country. The economy is down in the dumps with the slowest GDP every recorded. The Citizenship Amendment Act is propounded to hide the tail-spin of the Indian Economy. Another outrageous decision made was to convert a mosque which was built in the 15th century to a Hindu temple as it is the birth place of Lord Ram. The Supreme Court judges who are the cronies of BJP govt. passed this macabre verdict to appease the sycophants who want to make India into Hindu Country.

For the Kurds

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Dispossessed and homeless—
Being pounded with mortar
And clay……..
Let the melody of
Freedom ring in your ears….
You deserve the right
To a homeland…..
Cruel men have
Swollen you as gladiators .
You are persecuted in Jails of
Prison …..
Wail a poem of lamentation…
Let’s make you free nation.

For Tibet Uyghur and Hong King

Oh Fascist Fang of China,
Your obeisance
To communism
Is trite hypocrisy………
Look at how
You poison
Your people –
The Tibetans
The Uyghurs
And Hong Kong
You don’t have
The breath to
Unlock their chains
And make them
Free democracies ……
Your massacre
Their people,
You loud mouth
Their cultures…
You venom of
Fascism,
Let these regions
Have their homeland and
Experience democracy’s
Heart and soul

Will and Sovereignty

I would like to state an opinion on both Will and Sovereignty. Will is the embodiment of the human mind to think and make a rational decision. Will can be collective or individualistic. A collective will is the ethos of the making of a democracy. What is sovereignty? It refers to a nation being externally independent and internally supreme. In the present Geo-political scenario we find a lot of nations with conflicts of the collective will and sovereignty. Some nations use brutal force and the adverse result is violence and terrorism. What should be done when there is conflict between the collective will and the sovereign? Nations should leave it the will of the people through a referendum or a plebiscite.
