[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]I[/dropcap]t has been a pleasant gift for all PTs (Patriotic Tweeples as Dr. Swamy affectionately refers us) as news trifles down that Modi Sarkar has nominated Dr.Swamy among five others for the Rajya Sabha under the prestigious Presidential nominations category; which are given to eminent personalities who excel in the field of art, literature, social service etc.
This nomination gives much needed teeth to the ruling NDA which is woefully short of majority in the Upper house and is outsmarted by the likes of Yechurys’, Azads’ among others. We can be rest assured that Congress, the Left and the Opposition at large would definitely feel the heat in the Rajya Sabha in the days and weeks to come. Also, I am hopeful this nomination would be followed up by a cabinet ministership. The SuMo (Subramanian Swamy & Modi) duo can be counted on to deliver the goods to the people and work towards fulfilling the core promises on which the NDA govt. stormed into power in 2014; which are Development, Tangible Anti-corruption measures & Hindutva.
So what makes Dr. Subramanian Swamy an enigma, a public figure whom a large section of the educated youths follow so passionately? What explains the hordes of followers of Dr.Swamy on the social media who eagerly look forward for his views? Many would admit the magnetic charisma, confidence and the calm demeanor which he exudes.
[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]T[/dropcap]he answer lies in the way he carries himself in the public sphere and his real-hero personality who can take on the mighty singlehandedly inspite of all odds. Not many of us can even dream of attaining a Ph. D. from the world’s topmost university that too at the age of 24. There are enough materials out there in the public domain which lists his impressive achievements. It is indeed very difficult to stick to your thoughts however unpopular it is. Swamy could have climbed up the ladder of politics much earlier had he compromised with his opinions, individuality and the guts to speak his mind in the most demanding of the situations.
As an anti-corruption crusader Swamy has won many a heart with his relentless and painstaking work on unearthing 2G scam, National Herald scam, Ram Mandir issue, JJ DA case, The Jet-Etihad issue among many others. It is so easy to crib endlessly about the sorry plight of our setup but it takes grit, determination and steely resolve to get the guilty to the books especially working within the parameters of our archaic law and order system.
There are many a lesson one can learn from Swamy’s teachings:
Say no to dowry.
Work towards bringing social renaissance among Hindus – educate Hindus about the Varna system and how caste-based discrimination is a colonial baggage which needs to be buried forever.
Know the real history of our great nation and unlearn the false history force-fed to us by the Nehruvian historians through propaganda, textbooks. Ensure the new generation gets to know the actual history and learns to appreciate the hardship our forefathers have gone through to protect this great religion.
Educate people of the real sense of Hindutva.
Perform the duties to the best of your abilities and don’t worry about the outcome as elucidated in the Bhagavata Gita.
All round Education is very important apart from the academics. One should learn and develop social, physical, intellectual, cognitive, emotional intelligence.
Build a strong character and be honest, truthful and brave.
Fight and inspire others to fight against corruption.
Work towards removing all social and cultural barriers imposed on women.
There have been very few public figures who have made such a telling impact to our lives, our thought process, our persona. One is thankful and fortunate to have someone like Dr.Swamy in the public sphere; guiding and inspiring all of us; the young and the restless to re-build this great nation towards glory with intellectual and spiritual growth.
