Should I just say the words “I’ll pray” and not follow through

Isn’t helping someone the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

Isn’t willing to sacrifice my time, energy and effort to serve others, the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I take my friend to his doctor appointments

Isn’t waiting with him to comfort him the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I provide groceries to someone who can’t afford

Isn’t providing food and necessities to someone the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I make regular meals for someone who is ill

Isn’t helping someone cook who can’t themselves the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I babysit for a mom who just needs an hour or two on her own

Isn’t being there to help her regain her sanity the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I commit to spending time to pour into my hurting friends

Isn’t regular phone calls to those far away the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

Isn’t just being there and willing to listen the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Shall I let my friend know that he is not alone

Isn’t willing to share his struggles and faults the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Should I just spend time with the Lord in prayer

Isn’t being prepared to step out in faith to serve a person in need the best prayer I can say

Oh, the temple is too far

Can I make someone smile on the way

 

Should I not rather be always ready and willing to follow through

Isn’t just doing something for someone the best prayer I can say

Elections have always been at least a little dirty.

No political campaign can be complete without unseemly actors stirring trouble, duping voters and raising the spectre of violence. Political mischief is as old as politics itself, and our country has countless examples.

Every single political party in our country has used the tactics of fake news, bribing media and exploiting caste tensions to con the common man and win the elections.

Another great Indian Political Circus is going to unveil very soon which will make the fortunes of these con men and mar the fortunes of us, the common men for another five years.

Then, the dirty game will be played yet again…..and again!

The Reservation Policy in India is a process of reserving certain percentage of seats (almost up to 50%) in Government educational institutions and Government jobs for a certain class of people.

 In Central Government funded higher education institutions, 15% of available seats are presently reserved for Scheduled Caste (SC) and 7.5% for Scheduled Tribe (ST) students apart from 27% reservation for Other Backward Class (OBCs) totalling to 49.5%.

 OBC classifies castes which are socially or educationally or economically disadvantaged. 4.5% of Government jobs and education places are reserved for the minority which includes Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and Zoroastrians (Parsis), carved from the existing quota reserved for OBC.

 Decades ago, the reservation policy was adopted in our Country with a reason to uplift certain castes that were subjugated to atrocities, social and economic backwardness due to the prevalent dominance of caste system in the Society.
