Maya Is Only Maya!
The genocides, tortures, murders and rapes currently coming to light in Uttar Pradesh of Northern India only prove that feudalism still rules in this region. Feudal lords of states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar may have assumed a democratic nomenclature, but their basic nature and execution of duties remain horrifyingly the same as in the middle ages. The situation is confounded by still existing poverty, illiteracy, damnable traditions and exploding population.
Though bitter political fights are being fought over this saga of inhumanity, it’s hardly political. The ruling party may be under a lot of pressure and if this eventually effects transfer of power to an opposition party the situation would not ever improve. This basically means a transfer of power from a feudal lord to another equally reactionary feudal lord. Feudal exploitation would remain its mantra.
No wonder, the Women Reservation Bill has been facing maximum opposition from these two states. Because, the basic principle of feudalism is to dominate and exploit women. The Lords would rather die of shame than elevating women. That the concerned Lord may be a woman too hardly matters.
From the ancient period the great sages and scriptures have been teaching us that the external world is only an illusion or maya. We should ignore it and try for internal bliss. So now, from the philosophical side whatever has been happening in Uttar Pradesh or in Northern India is only Maya (illusion). And, from the materialistic side it’s also Maya (wati)! We can only appeal to the sages to kindly reincarnate and tell us what to do!
