From institution to mechanism by Janaki Nairhttp://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/from-institution-to-mechanism/article8447594.ece?homepage=true
This article reads as if all and sundry are reinventing the wheel.
The ruling government and its workers are rooted in modern civilization
as are the others. The ruling govt is presenting the Gita to world
leaders but stand exposed in violating its basic tenets. That is why
the Dalai Lama exhorted the students and the others to become
knowledgable about our ancient knowledge base as it has important
relevant lessons for the present and the future. Thus what is required
is despecialisng one's vision and studying the existing system in India
without shying away from this or that school of thought and action.
Examples of present living must be thoroughly examined not only from
the point of his story or her story but life as it exists today and
come up with a coherent optimal mode of action justified by ground realities and
what should be realised for happy fulfilment of all. Transcending all
is the Unknowable. Our Karma should be to recognise the superiority of nature
and offer in return a realisation of action consisting of genesis and
support of beings and not their self destruction as modern civilization
is bringing about. Mahatma Gandhi's prognosis: Given enough time modern
civilization will cause extinction.I cite one result of modern civilization(mc)
to bring home the point at issue: mc is based on false knowledge: It is a society
of specialists: It meets water needs by destroying forests and building dams.
Electricity is produced in such a way also by mining ores for fossil fired and
nuclear energy programs. Dams stabilise the grid because demand is variable unlike
base loaded thermal and nuclear plants. But dams cause earthquakes by direct
heating up of the earth. And earthquakes destroy the infrastructure of mc-
Fukushima triple melt was caused by a great damquake of 9 MM magnitude.
By applying the precautionary principle, we must abandon mc. Fukushima the extinction
breeder is slated in one scenario studied by me to kill off all babes born on
the subcontinent year after year from 2028. Respect for nature and ecological
reforestation- that is considering all life precious- will be the new mantra for
people to reflect urgently so we survive the onslaught of mc. Thus the call
for a normal way of life based on truth. Discipline in implementing the truth
must replace the present misgovernance and useless actions.
