There are good and bad engineers. There are good and bad doctors. There are good and bad teachers….. But even today the words ‘Engineer’, ‘Doctor’ and ‘Teacher’ connote a positive vibration. But thanks to our politicians, they have managed to change the meaning of the word ‘Politics’. This word instead of meaning ‘Art or science of government’ connotes negative and repulsive vibrations. When greed for power and money raises its ugly head anywhere, we suspect the entry of politics, whether it is a temple or an educational institution.
Later onwards Naveena interviewed me for his ‘mysorematters.com’. At that time I also asked him a few questions. He expressed his inclination towards entering politics. My anathema for politics is well-known. But why not? He has the fire in his belly. He is honest. He is educated. He is an Engineer. He is young. Below 30! More than everything, he is committed. What other qualifications you need? He is contesting from Krishnaraja constituency. Unfortunately I cannot vote for him, as I stay in a different constituency. He needs our support. He also needs the support of Divyadeepa volunteers.
Naveena, God bless you! More and more honest, educated patriots should enter politics. The word, ‘Politics’ should regain its lost meaning. This word should bring back to our memories the contributions of politicians of the calibre of Lal Bahadur Sastry.
