Interview with Padmini Arhant on Hypocrisy Máximo

September 20, 2016

PADMINI ARHANT. Author & Presenter PadminiArhant.com. Representative Divine Mission.

By Padmini Arhant

Hello Everyone!

Hope all well with you.

I want to shed light on hypocrisy. Whatever happens today is the result of those reining control over system and the rules created by them. 

Mind you – rules may very well be introduced by them.  Nonetheless, rules never apply to them ever.  Them and their envoys in different capacity are held above law regardless of the offenses and crimes that are not even considered a violation.

On the contrary, the laws are imposed on law abiding citizens and expected to be complied with constant reminder of the society governed by law and order. There is hardly any recognition among them that laws discarded by them essentially confirms lack of credibility when lawmakers are principal lawbreakers in society.

This is a mere drop in the ocean in terms of numerous contradictions about them. In fact, they object to my discussion about this topic while they continue to attack me through countless surrogacy for presenting the facts and speaking the truth that is deemed an unforgivable act according to them.

Think about this situation – they pursue me via parody, innuendoes and bizarre claims that has only led to self-exposure for them finding themselves with the foot in their mouth.

How come the press and media owned by them and entertainment industry under their influence never target members in political class and those culpable for many scandals and gross human rights breach except some token remarks with behind the scenes apologies to them?

The latest news from hegemony run press obscurely reported that U.S. President Barack Obama will veto bill initiated and brought to Congress by 9/11 victims’ families against Saudi dynasty.  This should have been the headlines questioning the legitimacy of such veto that protects foreign allies over citizens of the country subject to most violent terror attack in history.

How Presidential is it to misuse executive privilege against the people of the nation they are elected to serve?

Instead I am posed these questions in nuance. As always, I face challenges with candor and dexterity.  So I respond to them now.

Questions from media to me, Padmini Arhant.

  1. Why don’t you retire or step aside allowing young people to take over your position?

First of all, I just turned 57 years less than a month ago.  In politics or for that matter any other field this is well below retirement age.

By the way, I am not on anyone’s payroll – taxpayers, corporations, special interests or granted a money tree in the backyard with exemption from payments on all living expenses that is costing anybody unlike the so-called elected members on remunerations plus perks and celebrities raking a fortune during and post stardom.

Furthermore, most heads of the state whether province or nation in many parts of the world are way older than I am and some of them are octogenarians and nonagenarians remaining in power against the will of the people.

When I am in the working mode, I am asked to quit and when I am silent they also accuse me with tantrums like I am only interested in being a ‘housekeeper and a maid.’ 

The mistreatment conforms to – doomed if I do and doomed if I don’t , forgetting that I am not here to be at their beckon call. 

The irony is they cannot even keep up with their hypocrisy even in the face of stark nudity given their obsession in that front. 

Then there are certain folks who prefer to remain stuck on the magic digits – 65 years. Somehow specific political members and many celebrities well into the late 70’s and early 80’s insist on being only 65 years old.

I’m not sure what is the fascination with age 65 and this is declared by them after stagnancy on age 55 for more than a decade or so.

I guess they might be celebrating their birthdays not every twelve months from the birth date instead every other decade and that’s how they satisfy their aging concerns reversing as evergreen or forever young syndrome even though face is the mirror that reveals reality.

Lying about age does not guarantee longevity. When these image conscious figures cannot even bring themselves into admitting their real age, could they be trusted with anything they say on any matter?

  1. What makes you think you can continue on this trail when there are those with many years of experience in position?

Again, I’m not here to compete with anyone but rather the other way around. I am engaged in fulfilling my commitments to the highest Supreme entity, Almighty God  in the preordained divine mission.  

I have selflessly demonstrated my passion for humanitarian work not just in the past 8 years but since childhood and in progress until now which has been greatly appreciated by the Supernatural force as well as the beneficiaries of my contributions to their well- being.

My deeds sow the seeds for God’s blessings and love from those I have reached out to alleviate their suffering.

I have carried out these duties regardless of fierce opposition and exploitation of my generosity in addition to  being denied God blessed inalienable right to my original identity.

The individuality is determined by given name and DNA distinctive to every living being.  The inanimate objects also have a name assigned that cannot be mixed and distorted for instance stating the airplane as car or a train would only display the user’s folly.

In depriving me from personal identification exercised by humans and other species including those behind the unprecedented norm along with incessant abuse in the name of ruffling feathers by those aptly proving to be reactionaries upon confronted with facts and evidence on their egregious decisions and policy is self-explanatory.

As for the experience, all depends on track record and merit based achievements that are usually few and far between although scandals and corruption overwhelm political tenure and celebrity phase especially in the absence of transparency and accountability.

  1. Why do you consider rebuttal necessary leading to controversy?

As I mentioned, propaganda, lies, deception, deceit, distortion and subversion is the premise for those running the system and intend to prolong status quo. When they are unwilling to accept responsibility for deliberate involvements, flawed strategies and failures affecting innocent lives they indulge in mud-slinging and deploy cheap operatives in the game.

I reserve the right to correct concocted and convoluted profiling of me extrapolated to suit their preference.

In clarifying facts and actuality against intentional character defamation and caricature, I am doing a service to humanity from being misled and misinformed that is unfortunately a widespread practice.

Furthermore, my interaction compared to do that of highly sensitive human being is a misnomer.  One cannot expect others to grin and bear everything when the other side never know the limit.

I have also explained clearly about my principle.  I treat people with respect and expect the same in return.  No more, no less.

Let me dispel the myth in this context about my exchange with anyone stepping the line coined as controversial not barring thin skin connotation.

Jesus Christ whipped money lenders for obvious reason.

Lord Krishna had to let his cousin Shishupal succumb to arrogance. This when Lord Krishna saved Shishupal’s life and cured him from congenital disability.  Shishupal hurled insults and curses against Lord Krishna in royal assembly much to everyone’s dismay. When abuser takes advantage of other’s patience and exceeds boundary, divinity do that is required to restore fairness.

Lord Ram tried diplomacy with demon King Ravana, the abductor of Ram’s wife Sita.  Having exhausted peaceful efforts, Lord Ram was forced to terminate Ravana’s unruly disposition and draconian rule. 

Similarly, God Shiva is affronted by his father in-law Daksha and repeatedly denigrated deriving sadistic pleasure at every opportunity.  Daksha’s presumptuousness cost not only his status but also ended in him receiving goat’s head after being slayed in confrontation with Shivganas or representatives.

Just in case you all have not noticed, goat’s head is always positioned down in semblance to a mark of respect to all as a gesture.

Hence it is in everyone’s best interest not to test tolerance as that eventually harm the source and catalysts with end justifying the means sooner than later.

Needless to say the insolent and ignorant cannot be reasoned with as doom is the choice of their destiny.

The one who is laughed at ultimately earns the last laugh moment. Beat It.

Cheers!

Peace to all!

Thank you.

Spiritual Event – மகாசிவராத்திரி, महाशिवरात्रि, MahaShivaratri – 2016

March 6, 2016

By Padmini Arhant

மகாசிவராத்திரி திருநாள்!

மகாசிவராத்திரி திருநாளையொற்றி சிவ பக்தர்களுக்கு என் மனமார்ந்த நல் வாழ்த்துக்கள்!

பரப்ர்ஹமன், பரமாத்மன் பரமேஷ்வர் அருளால் சகல துயரங்கள், பாவம், அறியாமை ஆகியவைகள் நீங்கி, ஞானம், பக்தி மற்றும் மனிதத்தன்மை, அமைதி உருவாக இந்த சுப தினம் வாய்ப்பு அளிக்கிறது.

சிவபெருமானை துதித்து ஆசியை அடைவதற்க்கு தூய மனம், நன் செயல், பரந்த மனப்பான்மை தேவை. இது ஏற்படுவதற்கு இறைவன் வழி காண்பிக்க இது ஒரு சந்தர்ப்பம்.

இந்த கலியுகத்தில் நடந்து வருகிற அநியாயம், அட்டுழியம், அபராதங்கள் காரணத்தினால் கடவுள் படைத்த இந்த உலகம் பாவ கடலில் மூழ்கி கிடக்கிறது. இதன் விமோச்சனம் மனித குலம் தன் தவுறுகளை உணர்ந்து அதன்படி பொறுப்பு ஏற்றுக்கொண்டு தண்டனையை பணிவுடன் மதிப்பது முதல் கடமையாகும். பிறகு தன் ஆணவம், அஹங்காரம், அபிமானத்திளிருந்து விடுதி பெற வேண்டும்.

எவரும் தன் கரும வினைகளை தவிர்க்க முடியாது. இது இயற்க்கையின் நீதி.

ஈசன் மன்னிப்புக்கும் தகுதி அவசியம். இது மானிடம் அறிய வேண்டும்.

பூலோகத்தில் நடக்கிற ஏறுமாறான நீதி வழக்குகள் அதன் தீர்ப்புகள் மாதிரி அல்ல. குற்றவாளிகளை அரசியல், சமூதாயம் என்று பதவியில் வைத்து அவர்களை பூஜிக்கவும், மதிக்கவும் செய்யும் பாரம்பரியம் பாவத்தை அதிகரித்து, புண்ணியம், நேர்மை இவைகளை நிராகரிக்கிறது.

கலியுகம் கூடிய சீக்கிரம் முடிய இறைவன் அனுக்ரஹம் அடைய வேண்டும். அதற்கு பிராயச்சித்தம், பிரார்ததனை மூலம் நல்ல எதிர்காலம் பிறப்பதற்கு முயற்சி செய்வது தான் நன்மை.

ஓம் நமசிவாய, ஓம் நமசிவாய,ஓம் நமசிவாய, சிவாய நம ஓம்!

நன்றி.

India – Transparency and Accountability

September 10, 2015

By Padmini Arhant 

Indian political establishment ensconced in fair share of corruption scandals at national and regional level amongst ruling and opposition alike can no longer circumvent transparency and accountability.

What is relevant in transparency and accountability?

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee release of files related to Sharada scam for public scrutiny is critical rather than executing vilayathi (firangi) masters’ orders on Netaji life.

Netaji the honorable patriot and gem amongst freedom fighters refusal to bow to tyranny epitomize courage and integrity – a rare quality in contemporary politics.  Accordingly, India’s admirable son immortalized in Indian history.

Unfortunately, the great souls sacrifice pledging their life for the country now squandered with reversal of action amongst political class nationwide.

The nation is under siege with foreign exerted authority in proxy governance fostering corruption culture.

The public wealth from various scandals beginning with Bofor, 2G spectrum, CWG, Coalgate to Vyapam Scam, Lalit Modi Saga and shielding entities involving money laundering in INEX Media connected with much publicized homicide case is national overview implicating members in the ruling and oppositions combined until now.

Not to mention the regional states political factions and governments in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madya Pradesh, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu to name a few implicated in series of scams, disproportionate assets and black money stashed away in foreign accounts enabling offshore criminal syndicate profiteering while millions in India are left naked, homeless and forced into abject poverty.

Transparency and accountability is required in the political class surrender of assets setting precedence for the rest to follow in the country.

The funds recovery from political circle and allied sources due to Indian treasury would adequately provide for economic growth improving several million lives in every part of the country.

The procrastination in this context tantamount defiance in compliance of the law applicable on ordinary citizens in the nation.

Criminality in governance imposing law and order in society not only a credibility factor but also delegitimizes such functionary to serve the state and the nation.

As for the shadow power remote orchestration – when the foundation is flawed, the apparent structural fragility contributes to imminent collapse.

The enactments on international issues with collusion amongst performers in quid pro quo is illusive and self defeating in the pursuit to prolong unsustainable status.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

India – Good Governance Possible Upon Clean Governance

By Padmini Arhant

The tradition preventing progress in investigations on money laundering involving firms and political members in high profile homicide case leading to exposure of individuals in politics and companies impedes transparency and accountability.

The political trend stifling process at critical juncture when closing in on key sources behind criminal activities confirms status quo.

Governments intervention with typical actions in transfer or removal of head of the team conducting probe maintaining integrity and diligence expected in civil service proliferates corruption – the major impediment in country’s development.

The civil service – Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Criminal Bureau of Investigation (CBI) cadre routine experience is dispatch to remote locations or forced to accept lack luster positions upon demonstrating honesty and application of law regardless of stature especially politics, economic sector and entertainment industry – entities treated above law in society premised on prominence exerting influence.

Corruption rampant in political establishment due to self granted impunity and judiciary conforming to politics diktat rather than adherence to judicial law and constitutional framework is yet another challenge for the nation in purging graft laden system.

The acquittal and exonerations of those in politics, economic and entertainment segments despite evidence and corruption legacy is a travesty of justice promoting subversion of law.

The laws only meant for mainstream population – the vulnerable and economically disadvantaged in particular emanating from unaffordability to comply with bribery demand.

Indian treasury at the central and state level depleted hurting ordinary citizens across the spectrum with complicity in prohibiting black money recovery and tax evasions held in Swiss bank accounts, Singapore hawala and offshore tax havens primarily amongst political members in the ruling and opposition alike.

The plethora of corruption scandals during Congress led UPA term I and II with continuity in the incumbent BJP, RSS and NDA government not to mention regional political factions viz. AIADMK, DMK and fragments in Tamil Nadu, the alliance in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh entrenched in Vyapam scam and Sharada Scam tied to TMC in West Bengal …is tip of the iceberg in corruption tsunami.

The political class alliance and extraordinary favors dubbed as humanitarian call to founder and IPL chief associated with country’s most wanted underworld cartel in nefarious financial dealings subscribe to paradoxical stances while both remain fugitives defying moral arc of justice.

Criminal background and series of violations among political office bearers is hardly a concern including deliberate misrepresentation and contradictory disclosure on credentials in sworn affidavit during elections misleading electorate – the conduct ordinarily deemed perjury punishable by law instead rewarded with cabinet post mocking democracy.

The political assertion in crackdown on black money exempt self and core members deflecting civic attention from them in artful maneuver.

The political tactic linking religion and divine connotations besides contemporary practice imputing failures and negativities to targeted opponent whilst being gratuitous – hogging undue credits from the respective entity hard work and good deeds clarifies opportunism ad nauseam.

Imitation of positive attributes interpreted as flattery.  However, the gesture without acknowledgment of origin is forgery.

The innuendoes depicting discriminatory indulgence is a futile exercise and explanations in this context are farcical.

The unabated custom using caste and communalism for political mileage delineates those following antiquated hierarchy from human race.

Human being innate quality is to be humane transcending man made barriers with refrainment from societal prejudice. The resistance to acceptance and equality is civilization decline.

Condescendence and marginalization of others is reflective of internal decay. The overture on backward class is nothing more than mindset backwardness prompting insolence.  

Polarization through indoctrination is political strategy inherited from dominant forces much to sponsors and catalysts detriment.

As for anyone restricting access to worshippers in temples on caste or religion bias is essentially isolating themselves from divine grace.

The pure spirit with sincere devotion and relevantly selfless actions to humanity attains God’s blessings with or without affiliation to faith.

Temples are common premise and not personal property.  Such orientation is ignorance at best and pejorative at worst in religious concept.

In fact, God is realized within upon freedom from ego, envy, greed and hatred…the vices undermining reasoning faculty.

Furthermore, Lord Murugan aka Shanmugam or Karthik’s consort Valli is from gypsy tribe secluded in society as untouchables and backward sect.

Lord Murugan – the son of God Shiva and Shakti revered as Tamil and Hindu deity marriage to daughter from gypsy clan establish relations with not only Shiv Parivar (God Shiva’s Family) but also Lord Vishnu – Ranganathan as Murugan’s uncle.

The religious rituals and prayers for Lord Murugan i.e. Velavan with Valli is performed as eliminating Valli would be rejecting Lord Murugan and everyone related to Shiva and Shakti’s son.

This is indeed a dilemma for those upholding caste and creed as determining factor for superiority.

The society reluctance to abolish caste and segregation of God’s children being reality, the ostentatious religious rites and ceremony allude to commercial activity notwithstanding disingenuous pious disposition.

Human value evaluated on character and sacrifice to uplift lives for pervasive benefit facilitating proximity to God.

The veneration of God lacking in fairness, egalitarianism, love and respect towards all is redundant and fulfilled for self-satisfaction.

On the issue of Swach Bharatrelieving the nation from corruption and political manipulation of justice would clear pathway for holistic approach.

The initiative beginning with Parliament members implicated on corruption charges and their overt as well as covert connections to unscrupulous elements brought to public scrutiny in national domain would provide credibility.

Clean environment made possible with corruption free governance and political representation.

After all household trash disposed on to main street contributing to unhealthy and life threatening conditions cannot be contained in the absence of effective measures to efface unnatural cause.

Swach Bharat would be meaningful with swach sarkaar (clean governance) comprising political power in the ruling and opposition defining political identity.

Tamil Nadu AIADMK government irresponsible course in massive  intoxication of citizens with statewide liquor shops and state authorized violence against peaceful dissent to alcohol booths resulting in deaths and ruining families is culpable inflicting deliberate harm and suicides among citizenry. The government intentional damage is a criminal act with misuse of authority and disqualify the functionary as reliable administration to safeguard people interest.

The classic signs of proxy governance throughout India pledged allegiance to dissipating supremacy are political jargons – hindutva, backward caste, dalit, DR. Ambedkar, ‘rebel’ Subash Chandra Bose not barring the accused in criminal matter.

These are desperate times seeking disasters expediting inevitable conclusion of Dark Age.

India’s liberation from the corrupt and destructive external control with internal operatives committing treason significant to curtail indefinite suppression.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

International Yoga Event

June 14, 2015

By Padmini Arhant

Dear Citizens,

This is Padmini Arhant.  Representative divine mission.  Author and presenter padminiarhant.com

Before I proceed with discussion on several issues concerning humanity, I would like to shed light on the recent decision by the present ruling authority in New Delhi, India.

The ruling power in New Delhi, India has scheduled June 21 as Yoga Day subsequent to incumbent administration proposal and UN approval of this event.

The action deserves attention.

Let me acquaint you with Yoga and the origin.

Yoga was founded and introduced by celestial deity in human form to humanity.

The deity Pathanjali was a powerful orator and philosopher with knowledge in spiritual science and medicine.

Pathanjali was the exponent of Yoga and combined the beneficial aspects of physical and mental development through Yoga.

Although Yoga originated since creation of the universe, Yoga has been practiced in India for over two millennium.

God Shiva is the pioneer of Yoga. The Supreme Guru.

Yoga is the integral part of Indian cultural heritage.  Yoga is a proven healthy activity for physical fitness and stress management.

The tradition is also associated with spirituality pertaining to inner peace attained from meditation and concentration besides the focus on physical exercise.   Those who are not inclined to be part of spiritual experience could delineate from such pursuit even though in my view physical wellbeing is sustainable upon maintaining peaceful state of mind.

The requirement to raise awareness and sharing the multitude prospects of Yoga to mankind is critical.

However, the politically motivated strategy using Yoga as the means to promote ill-conceived notions reflects negatively on the source and catalysts behind such involvement.

Generally, when honoring any positive contributions and appreciation of service would be carried out with sincerity that is ominously lacking in the relevant engagement by the authority.

I raise the question to organizers and those responsible for choosing the date June 21 among other days in the calendar.

What is so auspicious about this day that has led them to recognize as the day for international yoga event?

The reality is political smear campaign and swift boat politics being the dominant tactics to prolong status quo those in position of power are feigning the action as a tribute to Yoga.

Any genuine purpose would not be targeting innocent beings whether animals or humans and instead approach with humility for greater cause.

The fact of the matter is Indian political establishment along with external forces posing to commemorate Yoga prepared to stoop to any level in denigrating Indian cultural and spiritual endowments for mutual satisfaction. This further exemplify the severe deficit of integrity and credibility among them.

Political environment has never been conducive or congenial going back to roman days and contemporarily become brutally Brutus much to self-destruction.

Yoga International event is best spared from political dog fight that is guaranteed to backfire at them.

By the way, my family pet Sasha’s birthday as June 21 mistakenly believed by those coordinating the convoluted affair.

Sasha would be dedicated in practicing yoga upon permissible by nature and perhaps even serve as an example for certain human beings with serious deficiency in values and character.

Man proposes and God disposes as always whenever deception and unscrupulousness is prevalent.

Will be back with more on global matter.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

Hindu Festivals – Shubh Diwali / Deepavali and Karthigai Deepam Celebration

November 16, 2012

By Padmini Arhant

The Hindu festival of lights Diwali or Deepavali followed by Karthigai Deepam celebrated to illumine homes and spiritually the minds for peaceful existence.

Diwali being the main festival for most Hindus emphasizes on positive virtues enabling smooth transitions in life journey with happiness and sadness reflecting the emotional state that impact well being and routine activity.

The celebration is also important for it brings joy during festive season adding splendor from colors depicted in Rangoli (artistic display using dry powder) usually in front porch or prayer area of the house besides the social custom of exchanging gifts such as delicious Indian sweets and dry fruits on that day.

Diwali is an occasion to express felicitations reviving human spirit for peace and prosperity in life.

Hindu festival Diwali is usually observed anywhere between two to three days with spectacular fireworks in the evenings decorating the sky enhancing the starry night like sparkling diamonds on black velvet overlay attracting gaze in all directions eager to catch the glimpse of glitter – an extraordinary delight shared amongst all.

Diwali is significant in promoting harmony and pleasure experienced through greetings with family and friends while many seek divine blessings in their offerings to deities of individual choice – although Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi are generally worshipped on this day in relation to respective incarnations for mankind benefit.

Subsequent to Diwali is another festival of lights known as Kartikai Deepam devoted to Lord Kartik – the Son of God Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

Lord Kartik birth is symbolic and preordained to pronounce goodness and renounce negative traits contributing to suffering and turmoil.

Since celestial angels known as Krithika raised Lord Kartik, the Lord assumed the name Kartikeya representing the brilliance of light to dispel darkness – the hindrance to knowledge and mind purification essential for redemption leading to salvation.

The religious function again observed for minimum two consecutive days extending to a week, the households lit with traditional lamps add brightness to modern ambience in appreciation of rich cultural heritage cherished over generations as proud legacy.

Festivals in general mark the occasion to rejoice and remember the essence of religious events often defining the purpose in life with moral guidance along side providing diversity enrichment in secular society.

Wishing all Hindus and others in India and around the world a serene and successful year and beyond with universal progress derived from unity, liberty and equality.

Shubh Mangala Diwali, Diwali Mubarak, Deepavali Nal Valthukal, Happy Diwali!

Shubh Kartigai ThiruNaal, Greetings for Kartigai Festival!

Peace to all!

Thank you.

Universal Peace and Harmony

March 13, 2010

By Padmini Arhant

Peace is a unique experience and easily realized if one is prepared to disinherit the negative emotions towards self and others. When human mind is at peace, it’s an instant bliss and pervasive over the surroundings.

On the other hand, the reason for the unrest in the world is because of internal conflict within individual that surface and spreads like a wildfire. Internal conflict arises from dissatisfaction mostly related to desire.

Therefore, discipline is necessary to control the needs and learn to be content with material possessions and status.

Another beneficial factor is generosity. A generous heart usually reflects kindness. Sharing and giving nurtures love permeating the environment like a beautiful fragrance.

Magnanimity could be in the form of empathy and compassion. Willing to take risk to save life or serve justice demonstrates an act of courage and a caring nature.

In the earlier article, the statement –

“Selfless act being seldom rewarded in the world dominated by ‘Me, myself and I,’ concept,” was in reference to those who come forward to do what is right for others despite the challenges ahead but remain unsuccessful.

It’s largely due to the lack of co-operation from the rest.

A perfect example is the health care reform, where the few lawmakers’ request to adopt a ‘single payer’ system that is ideal for the people and the nation is opposed rather than being appreciated.

When a society recognizes the cumulative advantage for a vast majority, with a permanent solution such as the ‘universal health care through single payer,’ it’s best to move forward in that direction.

Their positive action will not be in vain. It’s based on the adage –

“What you sow is what you reap.”

Deeds performed to alleviate the suffering of humanity bear fruits in abundance.

As promised, I would like to explain the events’ characteristics since my acquaintance with the citizens of the world.

A Prophet’s visit to the physical world is solely for the purpose of protecting civilization from collapsing. Further, it happens when ethical and moral degradation portends danger beckoning divine intervention for salvation.

Right now, the toxicity in the planet is endangering life.

In human flesh, the purest soul performs the act to pronounce the karmic effects of it. It’s to teach humanity the consequences of negative vices such as anger, hatred, envy, ego, pride, greed, lust, etc

By the way, the ‘butter thief’ connotation towards Shri Krishna is an endearment term used by the devotees, but was deliberately put forth in the context to arouse self-analysis of an intentional misunderstanding by the critics in the relevant topic.

Thou thyself art to blame. Human nature often forget their actions while detecting faults in others.

They ignore the remaining fingers pointing towards them during their criticism of another.

The speck of dust is magnified in the backdrop of luminosity.

Moreover, it’s noteworthy that throughout the latent teaching, it was never a pre-emptive action but a response to provocation.

Invariably, it was in the innocent victims’ defense and on other occasions a reminder to review bad decisions, that was once again affecting the disadvantaged,

As well as urging to look within and find the self, the pure soul – the ‘Almighty,’ who dwells in every being.

It’s an act of nature versus nurture.

By becoming the participant in the world stage, the objective is to teach the fundamentals of individual action.

It’s called Karma in spirituality. Also known as the cause and effect – i.e. nothing happens without a reason.

Scientifically, it proves that ‘every action has equal and opposite reaction.’

The spiritual guides as the Prophets and Messiahs have the responsibility to disillusion the astray and redeem them from their wrongdoings by absorbing the negativities.

In the process, the Prophet endures the pain through insults and incendiary remarks from the cynics – equivalent to bearing the cross to absolve Mother Earth from negative energy.

Indian mythology has many incidents whereby the incarnate and the Supreme entity had to consume bitterness figuratively and literally like in the incident when God Shiva had to swallow venom to protect life.

Lord Ram, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu compelled to send the lord’s consort Devi Sita, an expectant mother with twins back to the forest in an effort to be the subjects’ King.

Likewise, Lord Jesus Christ revealed the truth upon resurrection to the lord’s ardent disciple Mary Magdalene first, much to the principal followers’ dismay.

All of these events confirm the saints and prophets’ predicaments to uphold virtues by committing the ‘less virtuous’ action in ‘the eyes of the beholder.’

Synonymously, The 2008 Presidential campaign began with perfect decorum among the contestants on the left and the right.

It didn’t take too long for that to disappear and soon transformed into a ruthless battle with emotions running high allowing heated exchanges between the contenders, not to mention the office of Presidency targeted in the debates.

So, the lessons to be learned are mutual respect, better understanding, self-restraint along with an open mind to view matter in different perspective prior to rushing to conclusions or harsh treatment of anyone with a different position, even if their stance would yield substantial gains or loss for the less fortunate and otherwise.

I would like to engage you all in my life journey briefly.

During my residency in Australia, in the three-story apartment building among the many residents,

There were only two occupants of color – There was I, and a beautiful family from the Ivory Coast in West Africa.

The African family had the father, Kwadjo and his wife Tina with two lovely kids.

They moved into the building after I did. Kwadjo was an extremely friendly and a vivacious person.

Tina was very soft spoken and respectful.

They both were highly qualified professionals. Kwadjo was a PhD. in town planning from the internationally renowned Australian institution, Monash University.

Tina was a registered ICU nurse. They arrived from Ivory Coast as legal residents during the economic boom.

In spite of that, neither of them could find suitable employment anywhere, forcing them to become under employed. Tina worked at the janitorial service in the biggest hospital.

Kwadjo on his part volunteered at the non-profit institution run by the local church in exchange for food to support his young family.

Kwadjo and Tina would reach out to other residents for a handshake or friendly greeting only to be disappointed with a cold shoulder from them.

Since they were very good neighbors and friends of mine, I knew them well and we invited each other over for dinners.

When I relocated to the United States, both Kwadjo and Tina were still struggling to find an appropriate job.

A year later, I learned from my sibling who was in Australia. He stayed in my apartment and Kwadjo had made this comment:

“Your sister, Padmini was the only one in this building, who treated my family and me as human beings. She showed love and respect by sharing and accepting whatever we had.”

Kwadjo and family had immigrated to Canada after having spent many years in Australia without an affordable income. I was informed about it via a surprise post card from them upon their arrival in Canada.

Similarly, the couple with epilepsy in the building felt isolated for their speech impediment and not being able to hold a long conversation. They felt that others had no patience to listen and avoided them entirely.

Then in California, my neighbor Lee, who was a widow and a paraplegic, confined to a wheel chair.

Lee had many children, grand children and great grand children.

It didn’t matter. For Lee, had none visiting her even during Christmas or Thanks giving.

So, abandoning ones’ parents in their old age is not exclusive to India or any particular society.

It’s a worldwide tragedy. Most people have no time for others in the contemporary lifestyle where individualism takes priority.

I became Lee’s surrogate daughter and she adored my children, who were an infant and a toddler at that time. They used to call her the “lollypop Lee,” for she would offer them lollypop during my routine visits to her place to keep her company.

Lee was in tears when I had to leave and I remained in touch with her from overseas.

In another instance, my visit to Paris had a strange twist when the pleasant hospitable host, a French (a fourth generation French) Jewish cardiologist turned hostile to my polite question to him on the two state solution between Israel and Palestine co-existing with one another, back in 1992.

Even though, the French doctor had never visited Israel and lived in France his entire life, the discussion was off the table.

It made me pause and wonder about the discord that persists in the atmosphere.

Human relationships evolve from the recognition of the truth that we are all inter-linked in the tightly woven fabric of the global society that is splitting apart rapidly.

We are the fragmentation of an energy particle that has a binding force and it’s not viable to be polarized on the issues concerning freedom, democracy, equal rights, race, religion…

Every living being is born free but sadly deprived of the natural rights in many parts of the world.

On the Environmental Front:

The world population is dealing with different kinds of environmental pollution. There is air, water and noise pollution.

Air and water are natural resources. Regardless, the people across the globe have to pay for clean air and pure drinking water. Noise is a major hazard in the urban areas of the nations.

Preserving the habitat for life survival and sustenance is paramount.

It’s possible to change the stagnancy into a flowing river for all to exist and thrive.

If we don’t pull together and make a concerted pledge to reunite and rebuild the global community, the individuals’ aspiration will not come to fruition.

Selective few cannot succeed on their own for long.

Hence, coherence is absolutely important to retain the goodness and release the bad vibrations.

Universal peace and harmony are the cornerstones to resolve the global crises.

Please remember the primary goal is to “Save the Planet,” and establish “Peace on Earth.”

Without your help and enthusiasm, it’s not attainable.

Let’s begin now for a better tomorrow.

Thank you.

The Oscillating Pendulum

November 16, 2008

The historic election is over and the new administration is in the process of recruiting members for key positions.

It is still important to reflect on the role of media and news organization in this electoral process.

Extreme media bias towards one candidate and overwhelmingly condescending against another caused a great deal of frustration, anger and disappointment among the electorate.

The anti-media sentiments reverberated all over the cyberspace.

Media hype was intense during the Democratic Primary election.

Since I was vigorously involved during that time, I have great memories that will remain part of me for a long time.

There were several incidents but some of them have a greater impact on individuals, more severely than others do.

Mainly due to the smear tactics and negative attacks hurled on people like me entering the political campaign for the first time as surrogates, representatives or grass root supporters.

One particular incident is worth the spotlight because it is about the media personalities conducting themselves as the world authority in all matter especially the political race such as the Presidential election.

Ironically, in this Presidential election they were repeatedly wrong with both Democratic and Republican nominees.

Why?

They followed the conventional wisdom and failed to see or accept new possibilities and developments.

Only to steer course once the tide turned in a different direction sweeping anything and everything on the way.

The spotlight is precisely on MSNBC.

The network that took lot of heat from the public and rightfully so, for being excessively in favor of Obama Campaign in an unprecedented appeasement of the candidate then, Senator Barack Obama.

It is noteworthy that MSNBC initially rejected the candidate Senator Barack Obama against their preferred candidate, Senator Hillary Clinton.

Likewise, the venerable New York Times endorsed Senator Hillary Clinton way back on January 25, 2008 as the “IDEAL COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF.” and

Emphasizing that President-elect Barack Obama was not qualified in that respect,

Quoted by the recent Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman through national and international telecast on CNN.

I was devastated to note the hasty decision by a leading and the most respectable news organization such as New York Times.

Immediately, I made my first and only contact with the cable media outlet, Free Speech and World Link Television expressing my emotion on the endorsement.

Here is extract of the email titled The Moment of Truth sent to Amy Goodman of Free Speech Television on January 25, 2008, 12.22P.M PST , in that context:

“This morning the endorsement by New York Times is another way of indicating that Senator Clinton will be the future President of the United States.

Senator Clinton made many overtures in her recent T.V talk show appearances that I should go away and abandon the Obama campaign to suppress the Iraq war issue finally.

The impression I have is,

If Senator Obama becomes the nominee, there is absolutely no turning back for him as he would win the general election.”

———————————————-

In reality, what exactly happened prior to our President-elect Barack Obama establishing himself as a formidable candidate in the election is attention worthy.

First, my personal experience with MSNBC goes back to the days when the incumbent administration laid out the strategy to sell the unpopular Iraq war to the public and the United Nations.

I happened to be one of the unfortunate victims of mandatory public opinion survey superficially conducted by the administration to gain public support for the illegal invasion of Iraq.

This matter verified and confirmed truthful by the Institute for Public Policy, a non-profit organization, following the claim in my blog post during the Democratic Primary election.

With the relentless pro-Iraq war rally from networks such as MSNBC and FOX, the administration successfully launched their mission.

Although, there were other major networks equally involved in drumming their support for the Iraq war…

MSNBC displayed no qualms in abruptly eliminating dissent like the popular and visibly democratic, none other than their own talk show host, Mr. Phil Donahue.

My first unpleasant experience with MSNBC is regarding the anti-Iraq war message conveyed to the administration in response to the mandatory survey.

In my statement, I clearly emphasized the blunder by the administration on their commitment to wage war against Iraq and,

The consequences ensuing in terms of loss of lives, economic costs, national reputation and everything else that followed the disastrous war.

The born again liberal MSNBC demonized and targeted me as anti-patriotic with spam mail flooding my Inbox.

Further, the obscene materials via virus corrupted my database, forcing me to abandon the hard disk for a new one.

It was nothing short of homegrown terrorism for my anti-war position.

It is important to cite the article by Victor Davis Hanson, A senior fellow at the Hoover Institution,

Ref. San Jose Mercury News, November 13, 2008.

The article quotes “Most polls reveal that American voters believed that their media was biased in favor of Obama.

The popular journalist Chris Matthews even bragged that it was his job responsibility to see that Obama succeeds.”
———————————————————————-

Chris Matthews brags about his support to Obama during the election.

It might be the case but the evidence is against such claim.

Chris Matthews threw his weight not until the candidate Barack Obama proven the Democratic nominee against all odds.

Mr. Chris Matthews clearly knows about what this is.

During the fiercely battled Democratic Primary election, Nevada Primary & Caucus held on Saturday, January 19, 2008.

I published the following blog post that morning 4.19 am EST, my time 1.19am PST causing fury and anger among the Clinton campaign and their surrogates in the media, especially Chris Matthews of MSNBC.

Electability Factor

Electability Factor:

The voters should focus on the electability factor when casting the vote in the primaries for their respective candidates.

The candidate, who can eventually lead the Democratic Party to victory in the general election in November 2008, will be the ideal nominee.

There will be various issues discussed and debated between the two parties during the general election.

Given the track record of the Republican Party in the general election, the Democratic Party would be well positioned with a candidate voting against the Iraq war.

Senator Barack Obama had consistently opposed the Iraq war.

He voted for the funding of the Iraq war to protect the interest and security of our brave young men and women in harm’s way and enable Iraq stabilize as a sovereign nation ultimately leading to the withdrawal of our troops.

The illegitimate Iraq war has been a major catastrophe for our national economy, security, credibility to deal with International crisis, and our image as the leader of the new world.

The Republican Party nominee voting for the Iraq war could be challenged and held accountable by the Democratic Party nominee voting against the war.

The victory strategy for the Democratic Party in the general election should be on the premise of Iraq war to honor the sacrifice by brave young men and women who lost their lives and all those currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The victory for Democratic Party would then truly represent the ‘real change’ against the ‘status quo’ or the establishment.

OBAMA SUPPORTER

————————————————————

To emphasize again, the blog post created enormous outrage with the Clinton campaign bitterly complaining about my attempt to influence the election negatively on that date.

As usual, mainstream media lend support to the power and establishment expresses their reaction in a manner to warn a private citizen like myself to stay off the campaign trail.

Like the BET CEO, Mr. Robert Thompson a close Clinton surrogate, with his exclusive appearance on–

The Situation Room, hosted by Mr. Wolf Blitzer, on CNN specifically advised me by referring to me as,

The “woman of color” to cease my campaigning for the candidate then, Senator Barack Obama.

The Nevada Primary was won by Senator Hillary Clinton.

President-elect Barack Obama had the caucus victory.

The MSNBC coverage on Saturday, January 19, 2008, the day Nevada results was declared, is evidence to the outburst of a media commentator against a private citizen.

Chris Matthews, in particular admonished me directly by wagging his finger and in uttermost condemnation of my interference in the Presidential election.

He said, “This is not a horse race for betting. It is a serious Presidential race.

Individuals with no knowledge or experience should stay out of political campaigns.”

It was a clear indication that individuals like me have no place in politics or public forum.

The sentiment was shared by another MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell who initially tried to remain objective during the discussion with Clinton aid about that particular blog post that morning.

However, she later on made a bizarre remark about a possible substance abuse by me because of my daring attempts to envision a future with an African American Presidency.

Only, if Andrea Mitchell would have played a similar role in critiquing her spouse and the ex-Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan,

Equally responsible for neglecting the warnings of the economic turmoil that nearly brought the domestic and international financial markets on the brink of collapse,

The recent bailouts may not have been necessary.

Thankfully, we are living in a technology driven age, where such incidents cannot possibly be buried in a time capsule with a hope of never being found until it becomes irrelevant.

All these blatant attacks and innuendoes were to demoralize me and debilitate my effort in spreading the message of our movement.

I owe my passion, commitment and drive to get further involved in the campaign to my children especially my eleven-year-old child.

He encouraged me to stand up to partisan politics and send a strong message to commentators like Chris Matthews, Andrea Mitchell and the likes,

That, ordinary people can do extraordinary things in life.

In fact, he was targeted as well with a nickname sidekick by the President-elect Barack Obama’s opponents for his exceptional role in exploiting the web technology with the publication of my blog posts.

My son’s advice to me was, not to rest until Senator Barack Obama is elected "The President" Barack Obama.

I am glad and proud of my son’s advice to fight against the odds given the extreme stressful situation at that time.

Surely, children have a better sense of rationality enabling them to behold a different vision for the world.

They realize the burden on them with respect to the national debt, credibility and financial security as future taxpayers of the economy.

Prior to the election coverage, MSNBC’s show —

The Countdown by Keith Olbermann targeted the American idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar and

Sadistically mocked him almost on a daily basis to survive competition with condescending remarks through critic like Maria Melito.

Maria Melito in her brutal attack against Sanjaya Malakar claimed that the reason for Sanjaya to gain unprecedented votes was because…

“The people of his ethnicity i.e. India, voting for him never had anyone rise to the hall of fame in history.”

Sadly, such comment reflected ignorance as anyone born on Planet Earth, should know the ancient Indus valley civilization which is India is not new to fame and wisdom.

The land in South East Asia is the origin and birth place of celestial beings like the Holy Lord Krishna, Holy and Graceful Gautama Buddha and sentient beings of the twentieth century such as Mahatma Gandhi —

The noble soul, the light of the world, the mentor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Dr. Nelson Mandela, preached and practiced non-violence, peace and unity that are oxy-moron in the contemporary world.

Not excluding other notable scholars like Nobel laureates…

The Poet Rabindra Nath Tagore for literature in 1913 and DR. Har Gobind Khorana for Physiology or Medicine in 1968 to name a few.

Besides, Sanjaya Malakar fan base sprawled across the social spectrum as demonstrated by his young admirer, Ashley Ferl awestruck during his performance.

Young Ashley Ferl, was in return summoned to the Senate for rigorous interrogation by the elected officials…

Prioritizing investigation of genuine admiration for a young performer on the national stage over serious issues like Abu Ghraib, Katrina and deliberate exposure of CIA overt operative Mrs. Valerie Plaim.

To revert to the article by Victor Davis Hanson, ref. San Jose Mercury News, Nov 13, 2008, titled — “The kind of real ‘hope and change’ we can believe in for next year”

“The media, meanwhile should be careful not to abandon fairness and discretion for short-term political advantage.

When the wheel turns – and it too, always does – what you did or said will come back to haunt you.”

I could not agree more with the affirmation.

I hope Chris Matthews and others learned a lesson or two from this historic political event.

When Change occurs, it happens all around much to the dismay of those consumed with fallacy and egocentrism regardless of the empire they reign.

The mainstream, far left and right media as well as some news organization with an exception of cable network like —

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, “The Colbert Report” and “The Late Night Shows”,

Failed to meet the journalistic standards of objectivity and professionalism required in the presentation of views and analysis of any events particularly a Presidential election or for that matter, serious missions like the war.

The role of MSNBC and FOX in their relentless bashing of the candidates from both political aisles successfully drove the viewers to the cyberspace in search of

Truth and Transparency desperately sought by people of the human race.

Whether it is young Sanjaya Malakar reaching for the stars or young Senator from the State of Illinois, President-elect Barack Obama successfully taking a shot at the highest office on land,

Their audacity of hope was challenged with rhetoric filled with racial slur, negative attacks and divisive politics to deny them the spotlight.

It is admirable that both individuals displayed a decorum signifying unity and poise seen unlike before in dealing with excessive criticism from the entities exhibiting power in the corporate media and Public office.

United States is a nation of immigrants from all over the world.

Any social progress to the satisfaction of all those feeling disfranchised is attainable only if the media and the elected officials recognize their share of responsibility in the service to democracy.

Further, the author of the cited article, Mr. Victor Davis Hanson, concluded with the following passage:

“Obama and his giddy Democratic majority sound like they think they will now be novel exceptions to these iron laws of politics, as if they really believe their hype that they are the “change” we have been waiting for, with cosmic power to stop the planet from heating and the seas from rising.

But the only real difference from the past old politics is that the present avatars of “hope and change” apparently don’t believe that the age-old adage – “The more things change, the more they remain the same” – will really apply to them as well.”

————————————————————–

It does not require the cosmic power to stop the planet form heating and the seas from rising.

It is doable by the ordinary human power to respect life in general and act responsibly for their survival now and in the future.

Failing that,

Perhaps the cosmic power could influence the resisting human nature to preserve and protect the ecological balance necessary for the sustenance of the planet.

As for the age-old adage referenced above applying to the present avatars of ‘Hope and Change”,

It entirely depends on the agents of change and their target.

The age-old adage applies to those involved in cosmetic change rather than fundamental change, the ultimate goal and mission of the present avatars of “Hope and Change.”

Cosmetic change is delusional and beneficial for short-term gains affecting a selective few, hence it yields “more of the same” result.

Whereas, fundamental change target the philosophy of the institution as the sovereign power and,

Therefore, it is real, long lasting and universal.

As per the Hindu mythology, Almighty God Shiva is depicted the

“Lord of Destruction.”

Destruction is Deliverance for a New beginning with a divine commitment to depart from the age-old adage towards new-era prophecy, a divergence from

“The Oscillating Pendulum.” —

The significance and the sole purpose of the avatars of “Hope and Change.”

Thank you.
