That the Hazare campaign enjoys complete support of the Hindutva brigade is not hidden from anyone. With such a backdrop, how far it is justified to endorse the same in the public domain? [TNM55] by Tusar N. Mohapatra on Sun 04 Sep 2011 08:56 PM IST |  Profile |  Permanent Link
I was wary of my comment being deleted, and hence, couldn't put it clearly. I'm not against anyone supporting or opposing Hazare. My concern is whether we the readers of the Mirror should follow this advisory? (although it was late in the day) [TNM55] by Tusar N.

If you say I don't take tea, there is every likelihood of someone asking why. Coalitions, similarly, have lately become so common that the will for taking uncompromising positions has dwindled. But, we have no such compulsions at the moment, and hence, may march alone. [TNM55]

You have touched upon some issues which can be dealt with by getting elected to the Parliament or State Assemblies. I have floated the Savitri Era Party to precisely this end. [TNM]

Where is the complete manifesto of the Savitri Era Party? What is the position of the party on the last Indian budget. Also, on the issue of reservations in the educational institutions?

The questions were meant for public discussion. You may answer the first two questions at leisure but I am more interested in the reservation issue which is corrupting the education system. It needs to be replaced by another system which addresses the historical inequities without sacrificing merit. 
Unless you have the "pull" to change those laws at the Centre, I don't see any merit in having a private conversation :)

RYD is averse to discussion on political issues. [TNM]

While I understand and appreciate the leverage that a political position - a position of power - can provide for greater action, I am convinced that there is a lot that can be done in an apolitical setup. In fact a lot is being done by apolitical organizations (NGOs, spiritual organisations etc). My experience has been that Govt bureaucracy and interference can impede and retard the work.
I believe the villages need to be given attention. The major thrust of the effort ought to be there. It is not only for amelioration of the conditions of living but the immense potential that exists in the youth. I have been wonder-struck by the reservoir of raw talent. It is simply amazing to watch teens fixing tractors and repairing sophisticated mechanical equipment with absoutely no formal training. Then the genuine warmth and simplicity of the people is deeply touching. One is truly humbled and quickly reminded of the first part of the Uttarpara speech.
