     Last Night, I had a Dream. As Dreams go, they transform everything on earth into some unfathomable characters, reinvent them to suit the dream and carry the dream like a Novel, or a serial episode, which may look absurd when we wake up, but looks so real in a dream. It is a real dream. I can’t help it. It is a dream. None can control a dream.

         You all know , it happens. Now, the dream.

         It is 22nd century. Again Rama, the great, has come to life. He has gone to the forests and is enjoying himself in the company of Sita and Lakshmana. But there are huge rumors and murmurs in the background, why Lakshmana was at all needed to do the Protecting / snooping on Sita all the time? Is he not needed to do other important work? After all, he is trained to be the head of the ATS later! Also, Sita did not ask for such snooping. Even Janaka did not ask for it. Can a Husband ask his brother to be doing snooping on his wife all the time? So go all the rumors and murmurs. 

Bharata comes and tells the rumors to Rama. Rama is aghast. He tells Bharata, I only want him to protect Sita – and not do snooping or stalking. Anyway, Lakshmana is a Brahmachari. He will not do such things. But, Bharata says, I have told you the talk of the town. You are answerable to all courts and commissions and most of all, the TV Channels. Whether you protect or snoop, it is all the same. Some are calling it stalking on Sita without her permission. Rama is disgusted. He vows never to see Ayodhya again and goes deeper into forests alongwith Lakshmana.

         Then comes the inevitable Golden deer. He is some foolish fellow, wanting to cause trouble to Sita, who had a great snooper around. He drew away Rama somehow or other. Sita said, I am your equal anyway, you go hunt the deer. Rama, goes bowing down before Sita.

         The deer leads him to an ATM in the south, and Rama finds a woman constable guarding the ATM at Night. Rama is afraid to go near the ATM at Night and walks away from deer which was so tempting him to enter the ATM. The Golden deer was easily killed by the Guard and eaten away. It happens – in 22nd century – in dreams.

         As Rama walks along, he hears the inevitable shouts of - Ha, Lakshmana, from behind. He comes back and finds, Lakshmana was coming on the way. Lakshmana tells him the inevitable story, of how Sita accused him and how people will believe her and not him, without an iota of proof. And, Lakshmana who cannot become king wants to be at least a lawyer or Judge! He doesn’t want any investigations on him later; therefore, he stopped snooping on Sita and came back.

         Rama understands Lakshmana’s predicament and both go back to find an empty Hut. Rama asks Lakshmana, did you put the Lakshman Rekha. Lakshmana says, no, they are not allowed now.

         So, things happen. Vali was about to kill Sugreeva in a fight and then, Rama kills Vali and make friendship with Sugreeva. The Blue cross hears this killing of the Vanara called Vali and immediately lodges a complaint against Rama. 

Anyway, Sugreeva becomes King, trashes the complaint and sends Hanuman and all Vanara Army men in search of Sita.

         But, there was a furore in the entire Kishkinda. Would Sugreeva do the same for every woman in Kishkinda? Was it needed only for the sake of Rama, who was just a friend of Sugreeva? If it happens to someone who is not such a friend of Sugreeva, would he be willing to send  his army men? Would he send even 2 constables? So go all the rumours.

         But, Once Sugreeva says, his orders get obeyed in Kishkinda. Not like Other kingdoms like Mithila or Ayodhya, where they don’t take their kings, always philosophizing, very seriously. No development happens there. All development happens only in Kishkinda.

         So, Hanuman, Angad, Jambavath – the whole ATS, also goes out hunting for Sita. But, only Hanuman is well equipped to cross over to Lanka, wharever it is. So, he goes on his well equipped Drone to Lanka. On the way, the windowpane breaks and the door opens. It all happens. He makes an emergency landing on a hill in the middle of the sea, repairs, refuels and goes again to Lanka. There, he meets maharajapakshe, the then president and discusses all the matters. There are many Chinese in the President’s room. There are no Indians but there are Chinese everywhere in Lanka. Indians are unwilling to go there but Chinese are ever willing. MP consults the Chinese Advisers and promises to help. But, Hanuman goes away on his drone in search of Sita.

         Finally, he finds Sita under the Asoka Tree. Ravan was sitting on a top branch of the same tree and was looking at Sita stealthily. Hanuman goes to him and asks what is the matter.

         Ravan says, what can I do? I never even touched her. Now, I am afraid of the Law. They will say, I raped her. Hanuman says, that is true. But, for bringing Sita here, You have to face the consequences, anyway.

         Being an ATS man, Hanuman snoops around , finds a few Pakistani terrorists and kills them all in an encounter. This is videographed automatically by some TV Channels and promptly aired in Kishkinda. After all, Hanuman has not followed any due process of law, before killing the terrorists.

         When he comes back to Kishkinda, there was raging discussion in Kishkinda, how an ATS man and his squad can be sent for just locating one woman. Anyway, Sita was not raped by Ravan. Could the ATS not wait till it happens and Sita complains? What is the purpose right now? Is there a request from her? Probably, Sita’s fundamental rights are infringed. Even Ravan’s fundamental rights are infringed. So, why all this snooping? What real harm, if any, came to her so far? None. So, why the snooping?

         There was raging discussions in all TV channels on how her and Ravan’s fundamental rights can be infringed by Rama and Laskhmana. But, Sugreeva says, NONSENSE, I don’t want all this. My boss is Rama. He wants it. That’s it. No one is clear, what Sugreeva called as NONSENSE. And why. So, people in the Parliament (of Kishkinda) shelve all the Bills. 

         But, the TV Channels are raging in controversy after controversy. 24 hours per day are not enough and 200 channels are not enough. Sita sends a letter through Ravan that, stop, my fundamental rights are alright. Don’t discuss me anymore. But, Media anchors insist that Sita herself should come and tell face to face. Sita says,  I reserve my right to beat anyone who violates my Privacy. Even Ravan did not do it. Why should TV anchors do it? One TV anchor says, yes, it is my fault. I apologize and resign my post for 6 months. He goes off somewhere to enjoy himself. The snooping was all too much in his life.

         Back in the Chattisgarh forests, naxals are moving around in small drones, specially fitted for them by Pakistan or China. Why they are still in forests , god only knows. Force of Habit, perhaps. What people are doing when Naxals are getting the Drones – no one knows.

         The world is so confusing.

         Suddenly, I wake up in horror, as bombs are dropping all around me from my TV channel. My God. All of it is a dream. No one has invented a technology so far to drop bombs on me through my TV channel. I am still safe.

         I vow not to touch any news paper or see a news channel of India especially, for the next one month. I need to clear my brain of all the cobwebs and become more straight forward and clear thinking. I need to get rid of these horrifying dreams. As the saying goes, No News is GOOD NEWS. Really.

Note : It is all a dream.  Also, this is a 22nd century dream.  Don't take it seriously. But, if you are also getting such dreams, do share it with me. We are all co-sufferers.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013


There are always a few news that are heartening and invigorating. There are also always a lot of news which are depressing and demoralizing. Some news are – just not worth reading. Here are the Good, Bad and the Sad 

1.         RAPE FEAR KEEPS  US STUDENTS OUT OF INDIA : Says NANCY POWELL, US ENVOY IN INDIA :- Wonderful. Our country is succeeding in projecting itself as RAPISTS’ Country, before the world. But, I strongly feel, we have this Habit of exaggerating every news. Sections of Indian Media also exaggerates a lot. There is least restraint in (& on) these sections of the Media.

For every RAPE, there are Hundreds of Murders Happening. Some of them are very gruesome. Murder is definitely a More heinous crime against the victim, any victim, than RAPE. We need to understand this very clearly. One gets RAPED; another Gets killed. If the killed one and the raped one are given a choice – only 2 choices, which would the victims prefer? It is a bad question – but, given the circumstances, there is no other way to drive home the point that Murder is a more heinous crime than RAPE. Yes. Rape comes next. If we are not even trying to prevent Murders, we cannot prevent RAPES.

Both can be prevented by sound education system, which builds CHARACTER, COMPASSION, NATIONALISM and strong Habits like respect between men and women. Our Education has been progressively degraded, denuded and stripped of all these essential qualities – which people used to expect of educated men and women. If these qualities are not inculcated, whatever else is taught is just not education.

Get into a bus or train, the man who is eve-teasing is most likely to be a college student or an educated person. I have seen it in Chennai. And, other passengers are afraid of him. If this eve-teasing is not stopped, how can we stop raping? Eve-teasing must be stopped, whoever is indulging it in public. Governments seem to be  afraid of college students. But, a 1% of them only are indulging in eve-teasing. Isolate them, Stop them, Punish them and rest will fall in line automatically. They will even congratulate the Government if this is done thoughtfully.

Day in and day out, every minute, our TV Channels expose the young and Old alike to semi-nudity, and sexy scenes. The  sexual instincts of many boys and men (after watching these sexy women) are therefore on the edge - when they go out on the roads. Once the sex Instinct is foremost in the Brain, many boys and men will have no control on themselves. It is difficult to BLAME THEM exclusively. Even sages cannot control, when a half naked girl comes before and provokes them sexually. They go away to forests only for that reason.
But, today, film personalities say – it is their right. And, 24 hours, TV channels are full of such content. Where there is a  CAUSE, its CONSEQUENCE is bound to follow. We are foolish enough to keep the CAUSE and expect that there will be no consequence. I can’t even blame the RAPISTS. Blame the Government for a useless, character-less Education  system. Blame the Filmdom, the TV channels  and the Government for the Half naked female dresses and dances and Item numbers with hundreds of Half Naked Girls on the screens 24 hours of the day – every day.

Can we at least have a RULE that TV Channels will not show such filmy content in the mornings from 5 AM to 9 AM?

Can we have a Rule that Drink shops will not be open during 5 PM to 10 PM?

We want to cater to the man’s weakness in all possible ways and then expect RAPES not to happen. We must understand that once the sex instinct is aroused, man’s defences against it fall like a House of CARDS. Women just don’t understand this. Most men also do not. Wiser Men should tell the women.

To compound all these, some of the women boldly and brashly say, even on roads, we will wear tight-fitting dresses exposing their chest, object to any suggestion to wear at least a small dupatta on the front; expose the whole back (whether the sun is hot or the day is chill) and as much as possible of the front. and so on. Woman’s dress is probably the single most important factor which evokes either respect or sexual instant in a man. Now, if this section of women are wearing dresses which are designed to provoke sex instincts – they may not suffer – but the sexually provoked males, at least a small percentage of them are bound to seek release from the sex instinct which is gripping them.

An argument frequently advanced is – we will wear any dress we like – you control yourself! This is a illogical, unnatural argument. From the Days of Adam and EVE and the days of Lord Siva and Parvathi, women knew that they need to cover their chest. But, now some women want to go back to the days of eve, before the so called sin. I do not think, Men or women can have such absolute freedom of dress in public. It is subject to decency. It is subject to NON-PROVOCATION of each others’ sex Instincts. It is subject to levels of Obscenity. Attractiveness should not become Obscenity.

But, I may cry hoarse and reason with all through my Blog. But, I know, many sections of Indian media will not listen. Government will not listen. Sections of women will not listen. So, rapes will continue to happen. Eve teasing will continue to happen. What if the American Females do not come? When they come, we will need to enforce a dress code on them too.

Now Lawyers are blaming seniors and senior Judges of Supreme Court also - of sexually harassing them. This is quite Probable. This may have happened. It should be stopped. But, I request these female lawyers to do some introspection also. Why are you saying this long, long after the events? Why did you not get away from them then and there? Neither you, nor the man concerned, have no right what so ever, to defame the Highest Court of the Land before the world. That is paramount – not your individual issues.But, if they had had some compelling reason not to be able to do so, then what?

It would  be better that Female lawyers are attached to only female Judges and female lawyers. That seems the ONLY SOLUTION. Especially, Female lawyers should not seek such attachment to Supreme Court and High court Judges. Whoever may be to blame – even if only the men are to blame -  we will definitely bring disrepute to the Highest courts of the Land, unless, this female-male attachment at this level is not prevented by Law.

Some women were blaming even the Sankaracharya of Kanchi , of long, long time sexual advances etc. And, they were visiting the Acharya for decades! Who asked them to go to an Acharya who, they say, was making sexual advances all the time? Are they mad? Say, For last one year, he is said to have made sexual advances to them – and today, they again go, prostrate before him and seek his blessings?

The Acharya never asked them to come. They were going again and again voluntarily, willingly. So, making this charge is to say the least atrocious. These were, to my mind, plain lies. I am not a follower of the Acharya. But, whoever says, he plotted this or that, or made sexual advances, I will doubt them – not the Acharya. But, probably, those women are also not to blame. May be, somebody was threatening them and cajoling them to say all those things. If that be so – they and the Acharya were both the sufferers.
Indian men and women are basically good. But, bad education, bad TV content and bad guidance from elders – is making us go from bad to worse. Some men and some women may go beyond acceptable levels. But, that is not the case – with over 99 percent of men and women. We all live reasonably harmonious lives. That should not be spoiled by the balance one percent.

26.  It is true that most Medical associations in the world are yet to recognize its phenomenal benefits in full. But, that is because, they don’t conduct extensive experiments on herbs at all. They will do on chemicals – but not on Herbs. So, statements made without experimenting are not to be taken seriously. But, when Patients and Doctors are making claims, the Researchers must take them seriously and experiment. Unfortunately, the way the drug companies function, they probably won't allow this sort of research - which completely cures many diseases with one Medicine !

27.  Even the Indian Ayurvedic Universities are still in the days of Charaka and Susrutha – and have not yet woken up  to the beautiful medicinal world all around us – in wheat Grass and many other living plants. Perhaps, some of these are Great Cures for many new illnesses and old ones too. But, when are you going to become as great experiments as Charaka and Susruta? This is a call to all Ayurvedic Universities. Please do wake up to your  abilities in experimenting. Find Great cures to all illnesses – with Proof and – Hoist them before the suffering Patients of the world. But, first tell us FAST & IMMEDIATE - all about your findings on these Green grass leaves - with your proof.
