Law & Order Vs Subsidies

How do we achieve a state of zero rapes? Keeping people safe is the job of the law & order system. And what is the state of our law & order system? Forget high-level things like technology; the most basic thing is manpower. India's police force has only 130 cops per lakh people. The international standard is 200 cops per lakh people. This means our police force is under-manned by 35% - around 10 lakh cops. How can such a weak system do anything at all? The obvious solution is to recruit these 10 lakh cops. But we don't have any money to pay their salaries. Why? Because we are spending 1.5% of our GDP (₹ 2.5 lakh crores) on wasteful subsidies.

We are happily spending lakhs of crores on wasteful subsidies. So obviously we don't have any money for basics like law & order. Want zero rapes? Begin with zero subsidies. Because the path to zero rapes begins with zero subsidies.

Legislature, Executive, Judiciary

The universe has 3 phases: beginning, existence and end. Accordingly, the Supreme Being has 3 functions: creation, preservation and destruction. In Hinduism, these 3 functions are assigned to the 3 Gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

A society needs rules to run properly. And rules also have 3 phases/functions: making them, enforcing them and interpreting them. So society created a system called 'government' to make, enforce and interpret rules. But if all these 3 powers are with one body, it will lead to concentration of power. And concentration of power leads to corruption. Because power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

So the government is divided into 3 bodies - with each body doing one of the 3 functions. Legislature makes the rules, executive enforces the rules and judiciary interprets the rules. This is called separation of powers. It is a fundamental feature of a democracy. So a healthy democracy requires:
1. The 3 bodies must be independent.
2. The 3 bodies must respect one another.
This is the Dharma of democracy. It enables a democracy to give freedom, equality and justice to its people. Without it, a democracy cannot even exist - let alone function properly.

By trying to impeach the Chief Justice of India on completely baseless legal grounds and for purely partisan political reasons, the Congress Party has declared war on the judiciary - one of the 3 pillars of our democracy. And in doing so, it has directly violated the sacred Dharma of our democracy. Dharmo rakshati rakshitah, Dharmo vinaashati vinaashitah.

Dharma Vs Adharma

DHARMA VS ADHARMA

Hatred is Adharma, Love is Dharma

Slavery is Adharma, Freedom is Dharma
Chaos is Adharma, Order is Dharma

Stupidity is Adharma, Intelligence is Dharma
Ignorance is Adharma, Knowledge is Dharma
Cowardice is Adharma, Courage is Dharma
Weakness is Adharma, Strength is Dharma

May He remove our Adharma

May He take us from Adharma to Dharma

May we fight against Adharma

Ambedkar, Hinduism, Buddhism

Liberals have falsely projected Ambedkar as anti-Hindu. The truth is he was a staunch nationalist.

Myth #1: Ambedkar converted from Hinduism to Buddhism.
Truth: Hinduism is not a religion - it is a way of life. So the question of converting out of Hinduism does not arise. Ambedkar rejected the orthodox Hindu/Indian religions (Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Shaktism) and embraced a heterodox Hindu/Indian religion (Buddhism).

Myth #2: Ambedkar hated Hinduism.
Truth: Ambedkar did not hate Hinduism. He only hated casteism and untouchability. And these were corruptions which had crept into Hinduism under Turkish/Mughal/British rule. If Ambedkar hated Hinduism, he would have converted to a non-Hindu/Indian religion (Christianity).

ಕಲಿ ಯುಗ / Kali Yuga

ಕೃತ-ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಡು-ಪ್ರಾಣಿಗಳು ಕಾಡಿನಲ್ಲಿದ್ದವು
ತ್ರೇತಾ-ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವು ಮಾರುಕಟ್ಟೆಗೆ ಬಂದವು
ದ್ವಾಪರ-ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವು ಅರಮನೆಗೆ ಬಂದವು
ಕಲಿ-ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವು ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದಿವೆ.

In Krita Yuga, wild animals were in the jungle
In Treta Yuga, they entered the market
In Dwapara Yuga, they entered the palace
In Kali Yuga, they have entered the temple.
