Our practice of democracy is so strong that people take law in to their hands, do as it pleases them and get away and get away always!!!
yesterday's march on Tankbund (a scenic 3km bridge on hussain sagar lake) organized by joint political committee created unimaginable horror and terror, which cannot be healed easily !!!
The mob, for reasons very intriguing, damaged statues of great saints, poets, social reformers and kings!!! the emperor srikrishnadevaraya, for instance did a great service to Telugu language besides exemplary, rightful governance (dharma paripalana). poets Nannayya & ellapragad gave us the epic mahabharatam (considered as 5th veda) in Telugu. the saint-poet Annamayya worshiped lord venkateswara and wrote 32 thousand songs in praise of the god.
The siddendra yogi, gave us world famous kuchipudi dance. Jashuva, sri sri, kandukuri veerashalingam contributed to literature, social reformation and social change. , if these great men were alive and standing in stead of statues on tankbund, the thought that what this mob would have done to them is horror beyond imagination.
This damage to the statues on Tankbund is damage to collective spirit of Telugu race and culture. if this is what this unruly mob wants. then we are marching relentlessly and at scorching pace towards anarchy and civil war !!!
Unless the politicians rise above and beyond the present conditioned, competitive polictical sloganeering , we are doomed !!!
Egyptians got democracy by mob activity, we stand to loose democracy by the same tool, What an irony ! human mind is a restless evil, it appears !...
