ONLY VISITING TEMPLES DO NOT PLEASE THE GOD
Col Kuntamukkala Prabhakar Rao
Running around temples and conducting rituals do not bring changes or make gods happy while the inner souls are corrupt and crooked. In politics a simple and honest person can not survive.They have to be crooked and know the art of survival. Or one will be left out. You can see the leaders of one party Jumping into TRS without any shame before and after elections. How gods will be pleased with such characters who do not possess any loyalties and virtues like honesty, truthfulness , integrity and simplicity. people get what they deserve. People vote based on Caste creed, language, religion etc , sex and in turn we get fraudulent people on top.In Every election process , this is repeated. I am aware of a big ritual that was conducted to bring rains by appeasing gods so that a big reservoir that is at a distance of 30 km from Hyderabad on Nagarjun sagar road could be filled. the lake was already dry as there were no rains. Some top leaders of political parties participated in the ritual and there was heavy lunch too for all the people. hundreds of people were brought to the ritual by leaders in buses and trucks.The result was a big zero. There were no rains and even after four years ,the tank remains dry. How gods will be pleased ?. the persons who conducted the rituals and arranged everything had no integrity. They were mere opportunists and they were there because they were crazy of power and craved for some quick buck. In fact , catchment Areas Of lakes have bee n badly destroyed by land occupation, construction, quarrying, digging for earth and sand and blocking the small streams by constructing illegal buildings. All such streams of the tank were blocked as I know. There is no single drop of water in that lake even today. the same lake I saw in 1965. It was full of water water touching the near by town, at that time a village and was looking like a sea.One could fetch water from the tank by going two or three feet down the bund. Unless integrity is there , state can not grow and poor will become poorer while thieves , crooks, cheats and thugs will become billionaires within no time while honest guys will be suffering for a piece of bread in this land.
