08. Coup On Public Attitude – Its Influence On Society

Attitude – the way in which a person thinks is his attitude. The way in which a person watches any issue is his attitude. The way in which a person receives any issue is his attitude. The way in which a person reacts or responds towards any issue is his attitude. Totally, the way in which a person leads his life is determined by his attitude.

A person's attitude designs his life style. A person's attitude decides his way of approach to everything, every issue and every work. Parents' attitude constructs the foundation of their children lives. Teacher's attitude influences the student's education. The attitude of family leader, it maybe father or mother, or grandparent, acquires a position for that family in the society. Hence, we can deduce that the attitude of public can write the fate of their country. Totally public attitude has important role in every respect.

Because of this fact only, political parties are investing on pre-pole surveys to know what public trend is, what is public attitude, who can get the majority is how to influence the public and how to convince the public.

Because of this fact only, corporate companies and other business institutions are investing on market survey to design their advertising campaigns and to hit their products. Because of this fact only, cinema teams are conducting pre and post releasing programs of their cinemas.

Trend, fashion, patronization, popularity, image etc. are subtitles of public attitude.

But in this context the most unbelievable fact is – "BLACK GOAT-FOUR THIEVES". The real public thinking and opinion put side. By repeated saying, the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters in masks of politicians, intellectuals, No.1's in different fields, as well as the media could create their desired opinion as public opinions. By the way, successfully they could superimpose their strategies on the faces of public. But we should express our thanks to God as such situation is getting changed to some extent since 1992 in India.

Actually, in olden days, in India, there was no media to propagate news or information. The entire news and information used to propagate through oral publicity only. In those days, media was in the form of arts, literature, and administrative concepts of king. To all of this, Temples were basic units. The temple fairs, festivals & celebrations in temples had worked as News & information centers. Totally, religious believes, religious ideas had great influence on the public attitude.

I'm not saying that all the past is good. As well, I'm not saying all the present is bad. Relative to present, in some angles, past is good. Relative to past, in some angles present is good. We have to acquire good from past & present and from all possible sources and we have to nullify evil wherever and whenever it finds. Unfortunately the vice versa is happening. In spite of people struggle, in spite of people protest, some invisible force is applying to implement "selection of evil and destruction of good". Confirm, I can say this, and if you observe keenly, if you search for truth, you definitely agree with me.

Any way, in past i.e. centuries back, before the entry of Ghajani Mohammed, Ghori Mohammad etc. etc. Muslims in to India, before the entry of British, French etc. etc. Christians, in to India, public attitude was different. Naturally after invasions, due to the interaction of other religions, traditions, culture, a change in life style and attitude of public was occurred. Indians learnt some good and some bad from every event and it was history. We can't blame or claim the history. We can't change it. But we can analyze the history to know what happened, why happened. By the way, at least, we can learn how to create such environment in society in which good can be increased and bad can be decreased.

In Indian blood, there is patience, faith, and trust on God, tolerance, sacrificed nature and truth loving nature. I believe that anywhere in world, human blood is basically with the above said nature.

Here I refer you the first sentence of Russo's social contract "Man is born free, but every where he is in chains." Similarly, human baby is born with faithful mind. The elders spoil them. The same, Mrs. Kili Hemlin stated with her experiments about which I narrated under the caption of brought up of children. The word 'elders' I used for whom, they dominate the society and lead the society. Those dominators or leaders may be politicians, rulers, celebrities, media, or persons who famed as intellectuals or No.1 in their concern fields.

Because by birth itself, persons have such nature to follow the elders.


"యద్య దాచరతి శ్రేష్ఠ స్తత్త దేవేతరో జనః
స యత్ర్పమాణం కురుతే లోక స్త దనువర్తతే"

That means people follow whatever the top persons in society follow. People consider the parameters, which were considered by the top persons as best. This I refer under the caption of Responsibility of Media also.

That's why in ancient India, the public attitude was maintained and carefully protected like valuable asset. Yes, it is truth that the public attitude is valuable asset. We can determine or calculate its worth: because country means not floor, not mud. Country means its people. The great Telugu poet Gurujada Apparao said those golden words.

When a stone is there on the road, nobody will notice it. We may push it with feet. No value for it? If a sculpture made that stone into beautiful idol of God? We keep it in temple and devote it. It the sculpture made that stone into the shape of beautiful doll, we keep it in the drawing room. Its cost will be much in money. How the waste stone, stone became valuable thing? The manpower created such value. The human resources are everlasting natural wealth.

In such case, in any country if people become lazy, if people become illogic, if people become liquor addicts or Narcotic addicts, how such country could develop?

In Indian culture, in Indian blood, there is an undercurrent of idealism. People think that this body, the beauty of this body, the strength of this body, the luxuries of this body, everything relates to this human body is temporary. When the day comes on which the death call on us, we have to follow it. However, our body's beauty, strength, ability or richness, we have to leave this physical body on the earth i.e. in physical nature, and we have to follow the death. So, only spiritual life is permanent. The soul is permanent. Whatever the good or evil works we do, it is permanent. The human body will die but the fame or popularity never dies. The word what we talk, the work what we do, the way in which we behave will remain after we die.

All of Indian philosophy reminds this only to the people whenever it is possible and however it is possible. All of their life style is a creeper plant on the trunk of the above said philosophical tree.

Here I narrate a story to you. This is in the Aranya parvam of Maha Bharatam. Markandeya Maharishi tells this story to Dharma raja.

When the Pandavas were living in forest due to the condition of Aranya Parvam, one day Markandeya visited them. He counseled them by explaining the other great personalities like Sri Rama, Nala Maharaja who faced difficulties in life because of Dharma i.e. faith, and motivated them.

In that context, Dharma raja asked him as "Mahamuni, oh! Great saint. As per your knowledge, you are long living man on this earth. Is there anybody like you?"

With gentle smile, Markandeya Maharishi said, "Dharma Raja, you asked a good question. The answer should know. Listen with pleasure.

In ancient time, there was one king by name Indra Dyumna. He done so many good things, donations and faithful things to others and public. He was famed, as no other man was as faithful as himself. He was called as Rajarshi. After the completion of his lifetime, he died and reached heaven. So long, time passed there. In the heaven, they told that his earned fruit of faith was end, so that he had to leave the heaven. By saying like this, the heaven deities sent him down.

While the king was coming down to earth. I saw him. He asked me "Maharishi! Do you know me?"

By that time, I was tired with pilgrimage, devotional activities. So that I said "Sorry my dear boy. I forgot.

Then he asked me "Father. Do you know any living being elder to you, which is alive on the earth?

I replied him "There is an owl by name Pravakarnam in the Himalayas. It is elder to me. If you effort some more, you can locate it"

He requested me to accompany him. Both of we approached the owl. He asked the owl "Do you know me?" The bird replied "No" He asked the bird "Do you know anybody elder to you?"

It replied as "Oh! My little father! There is a lake some distant to here. It is called as Indra Dyumna Lake. In that lake, there is a crane by name Nadi Jhangham. It is elder to me."

Along with the bird, both of we approached the lake. The king asked previous questions. The Crane replied, as "There is a tortoise by name Aakuparam in this lake itself. It is born before to me. So it is elder to me.

When the king called on that tortoise and asked the same question to it, with sorrowful voice, and tears in eyes, it replied "Oh! My dear sons! What a great king was Indra Dyumna. He had done 1000 yagnams. This lake was formed by the sinking of ground here, due to the travelling of number of cows, which he donated, to poor people. This faith is his only! By the kindness of that king only, I am living here happily."

Within that moment, the deities came and took him to heaven. That means as long as our fame of faith fullness is on the earth, we will be in heaven. Similarly, as long as our notoriousness of evil nature is on the earth, we will be in hell.

That's the entire story.

Here I'm not welcoming the debates on the believes such as heaven, long life without death etc. because, the believes, that to religious believes are personal believes, and ancestral believes. It is not decency to debate on it. Because, the belief of god itself is the belief only. When a Nasthik i.e. an atheist ask to show God, nobody can show him. Existence of God is belief. God is nowhere. God concept is the imagination of human being: - this is also belief. To both of the concepts nobody can show proofs, as in science concepts. By standing on the same base, how the Nasthik i.e. an atheist and Asthik i.e. theist could debate over the belief? Everybody has their own believes. Nobody should critic over it. Whatever your believes are, those are your believes and no way connective to me. As well, whatever my believes are, those are mine and no way relation to you. I should respect you and your believes. As well you should respect me and my believes. Being citizens, it is our minimum courtesy and minimum decency.

But unfortunately, on Indian life style, on Indian believes, on Indian culture and on Hindu religion, so many critics, so many ironical writings, so many funny comments, and so many cartoons were poured like rainwater from clouds. Even now also, if you watch on the festival contexts of Deepavali, Dasserah, Vinayaka Chaturdhi, Shivarathiri etc. there will be number of cartoons on Hindu Gods, with funny comments on current political or social affairs, and with funny caricatures. If single sentence or comment passed on other religions like Islam etc., there will be Fatwa to murder one Salmon Rushdie and one Thaslima Nasrin. What a pity of it? Much pity is some of strategic Hindus now-a-days are trying to follow such Fatwa nature. May be in other religions also, it might be strategy, by some of extremists. But, any Hindu, if he don't tolerate others feelings & believes, if he does not show patience, definitely he should not be call as Hindu.

Because, in Hinduism, there is no 'one God concept'. There are three crores of deities. Though there is the concept of Paramathma i.e. Para Brahma, the unique of universe; as in Advitham; to pray, to perform pooja, to devote three crores of deities are available to Hindus. So to accept one more or some more Gods of other religions, they will not protest. It is in our blood as religion tolerance. Our Sanskrit Philosophy states that "యద్భావం తద్భవతి" means, in which ever means Man think about God, God will be like that to him. Hindu people believe that 'Whatever sin we do, we have to experience its influence. Same case with everybody. Everybody will get appropriate punishment for one's sin. Such is the tolerance nature of a Hindu.

Here, I return to the story of Indradyumna. People used to practice balance of mind to follow the faithful way, which was known as Dharma: with hope or desire of living in heaven for long time after death on this earth. With the desire on heaven, they could get the stamina to control their evil thoughts and evil activities. By this type of practice in life, people developed an attitude such as – after our death, the good things what we done must remain. Irrespective of the doubts of existence of heaven, the belief of heaven could keep the people in such a condition to practice and to live in faithful way. The belief of existence of hell prescription of punishments by God Yama Dharma Raja, the record of our sins on the earth by Chitragupta etc. could prevent the people from evil.

But strategically 40 to 50 years back, such believes were criticized like anything. Such strategy is still in implementation. So many debates, Novels, Books, Essays, and Movies tried their level best to demolish that foundation of believes. Books like Ramayana Visha Vruksham, Weeklies, and Tabloids etc. done their level best effort to do so. Under the caption of COUP ON INDIAN EPICS, I can give detail discussion on it. Here I refer movies like Devanthakudu, Yamagola, Yama Donga, Yama X and Yama Y etc. etc.

In our mythology i.e. epics, God Yama has Atma Gnanam, i.e. Extreme knowledge. That means, after knowing such, all our doubts will be clear and nothing else to know. By knowing Atma Gnanam, man will be merge in God i.e. Moksham. God Yama has another name as Sama Varthi. That means he behave with equal approach to anybody, he won't show any partiality or selfish or something like that natures while implementing his duty to rule hell. He has such dedication.

The human beings, by having the thought of death, tremble like anything. If they face any danger, they fear like anything. But how dare to put jokes on God Yama? In spite of such strategy also, Hindus, won't humiliate on it or agitate on it. In spite of such movies or funny cartoons on it, even though they enjoy and the laugh with such movies, they show fear and devotion towards their deities.

But here, I'm asking you that, such movies or critics, can anybody make on any other religion? I agree that such moviemakers i.e. producers; directors etc. all are Hindus; I won't get angry on them like my Co-Indians and Co-Hindus in cores in population. Because, as our belief 'whatever the good and evil, the people do in their life, they will get the relevant result. We are nothing and we have nothing on that issue.

Here I want to expose the impact of such approach in society. With all such movies, writings, speeches, debates, 40 to 50 years back, strategically a concept was introduced and it is still in continuation as "Who had seen whether the heaven or hell are there or not. To grip on weak, poor or lower [so-called] casts, the upper castes or rich or authorities created such believes.

"చచ్చాక దొరికే ఆ రంభ కన్నా!ఇప్పుడు నచ్చినట్టి పిల్లే బల్లన్నుల మిన్న"

That means, after our death, we don't know whether we go to heaven or not, we don't know whether we enjoy the beauty Rumba's company or not, so than the living in heaven, living like that of in heaven on this earth is much better. So enjoy now. No limits. No conditions. Enjoy yourself.

This was the beginning later acceleration had applied. Actually, it is the Materialistic attitude. It is selfish attitude. This introduced in India centuries back whenever the invasion of Muslims & Christians were started. And, I won't say that before these invasions, in India there was no materialistic attitude or selfish attitude. But, to practice it bluntly, people used to fear. That much of grip, the society, and the elders had on public.

Gradually, the running with Materialistic views started, and slowly the net work of Idealism which enabled to keep public life style within certain limits to protect the peacefulness and joy fullness i.e. law and order got break.

Hence result we are experiencing now in our busy life. Here I narrate you one example in our daily life. Suppose a family consisting father, mother and children. Suppose some hot chips etc. junk food, fruits and sweets etc. delicious food items, are there on the dining table along with lunch like rice, curries and curd. Naturally, relative to rice and curries, chips, fruits etc, eatable are more attractive. If everybody in that family becomes selfish, busy and not able to think about the others in the family, what will happen? Whoever is strong and who ever come early to dining table, they could enjoy the food and they could eat up all the delicious and qualitative food leaving the relative tasteless and quality less food for others. If the food on the dining table is limited, then there won't be any food for weak and late comers.

Is it not applicable for a country or whole world?

Suppose if the head of the family, either mother or father take precautions to distribute all the food among all of the family members, what will happen? Nobody could eat up snacks and fruits like rice, and nobody could suffer with hunger. In fact, the early fellow who ate much and who ate in reasonable i.e. unhealthy food that means snacks instead of rice could suffer with illness. The late fellow who faced lack of food also could face illness. Then where will be the joy and peace in the family?

Now, I hope that you can identify the conditions of the world and the relation of its cause and effect.

If we refer the above example of family, who have to control the strong and early fellows to leave food for weak and late comers? The religious believes perform such duty of control on society. The belief of the existence of God, his ability of watching every body's activities either good or bad, the existence of heaven and hell could control the society to proceed in faithful and peaceful way.

Indians feel that their country is like their family. That's why they used to describe a good king as "So and so king had ruled his people as if they were his children", or "So and so king had taken care of his people like a father". Indians used to call the good kings as "Ramayya Thandri" which means "Rama our father". That's why only Indians could call Gandhiji as 'Bapuji' and Indira Gandhi as 'Indiramma'. That's why only Indian calls their co-citizens as brother and sisters.

In India, except Hyderabad Nizam and Aurangzeb of Delhi Muslim kings no other king had harassed people. There was no 'magna carta' on Indian kings by people. There was no 'Gelatin use' on any race of kings in India. There was no need of 'Congress of Vienna' to any king in India to cheat public.

Because, Indians could think all the co-citizens are like a family members. That's why Indians only could imagine 'Vasudhika Kutumbam', which means "The world as one family". Such faithfulness and loving nature is the ancestral asset of Indians.

That's why only in Indian history, and in Hindu Mythology, Rama who ever sacrificed his kingdom, became God. He did not kill his brothers and father like Aurangzeb in case of Shajahan in Indian history. Gauthama Buddha, who ever left his kingdom to think to eliminate the sorrows from human life became God. The king Asoka, who killed his brothers, could place in the equivalent position with Aurangzeb if he didn't merge as Dharma Ashok from Chanda Asoka.

This is the Indian Blood.

This is the Human Blood.

So many kings had ruled this land in previous. Did public remember them? One Bhoja, one Samudra Gupta, one Sri Krishna Devaraya, one Akbar like that, very few are remembered by public. I'm not saying about the record in history. I'm saying, only about the record in public mind. There are so many musicians, now and in past. Only Tyagayya, Annamayya, Tukaram like that very few are in public memory. Who ever lived without selfishness, with sacrifice, with kind to public are still living in public hearts though their physical body died centuries back.

There is nothing wrong, if a person lives for himself. But there is a divine touch, if a person lives for others. In such a way, a common man can become as Mahatma. Bapuji i.e. Matma Gandhi is live example for this.

In now-a-days, like match fixings, there are possibilities to get fame as social servants and poor serving people. The media can give such fame and relevant awards to popular the persons who have the desire of limelight. Regarding my complaint against Mr. Ramoji Rao, Enadu, when I met another media man Mr. Sai Baba who is working in competitive paper to Enadu i.e. Vaartha, he explained me with high patience about this system of getting popularity. The full particulars of this issue I explained under the caption of 'RAMOJI RAO'S WRITINGS AND ACTIVITIES BEFORE 1992 AND AFTER 1992'.

But one thing we have to notice here. The popularity, the fame, the image through media or something else like that, also temporary. There is no difference between material and popularity. If we do any work with the desire to get popularity is equivalent to the work, doing with the desire to get money or wealth. Doing good for the sake of good is divine activity. Such good souls only can live on this earth even after their death. This is because; the time has the ability of proving the truth. The strategy of BLACK GOAT – FOUR THIEVES cannot super emboss or mesmerize the people for long time. Such fame fixing has temporary effect.

In fact, we believe that whatever we do either good or evil, whether people notice it or not, but God will notice it. Whatever we do, we should feel comfortable with our selves. If we are not comfortable with others, we move apart from them. We prevent their involvement in our life. In such case if we are not comfortable with our selves, how can we prevent ourselves?

Here I refer a story from Sri Rama Krishna Paramahamsa Bhodhamrutham i.e. preaches.

One day, a saint was going beside a village tank. Some mischievous children had driven an animal i.e. cow or buffalo into a mud dig and harassing it. The animal was suffering from their violence; the naughty children were enjoying it. Some villagers were watching it. But nobody could prevent the children beware of their violent nature. By watching all of that, the saint could not keep calm. He tried to prevent the children, from throwing stones towards the animal. He effort to pull out the animal from mud dig and driven it from that place. While doing such, he fallen on the ground, in the mud, but he could save the animal. The villagers laughed at him.

While he was washing his body in the village tank, some of the villagers asked him, why he took such an effort to save the animal by taking risk of striking of stones. He replied those "My little fathers! I didn't save the animal for the sake of you, or for the sake of children or for the sake of good and evil. I saved it for the sake of myself. By watching such violence on the other living being, I was not comfortable. To make myself comfortable, to make my mind peaceful, I done such. That's all!"

Here Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa preached us that 'every human being has his own 'Antherwani' i.e. inner voice. If we hear to it, we will be peaceful and comfortable with us. If we nullify it, the impeacefulness encroaches on us and drives us from ourselves.'

If we have good communication with ourselves that means if we hear and follow our inner voice: God will see us and we can see God. To support this Bhagavad Geetha preach us that our mind itself is our friend as well our enemy.

The believes what I mentioned above, all are influenced public. Because of that, only I could read them on books and anybody could read them. Because such thoughts and attitude was influenced public, that's why only they were recorded in books. This is the faithful side i.e. head of the coin. The tail of coin is evil thoughts i.e. thoughts of violence, sex, easy money making and thought of enjoying the fruit without harvesting it. This thought is nothing but robbery. Unfortunately, such thought of robbery and ability of robbering got such a positive caption as successes or victory. Such robbers got the image of rich or fame.

Actually, in each and every person, some good and some bad are there. In this nature, in which manner they day and night or day are there, in such manner, every living being has something good and advantage nature and something bad and disadvantage nature. If a person has more good qualities, than the evil qualities, he is known as good man. If a person has more bad qualities, than the good qualities, he is known as bad man.

In fact, in Indian society, there was a system to highlight the good qualities through all the art forms, music, literature and idioms, and all other propaganda channels. The elders lead the youth in such faithful way, as "Yadha Raja, Thadha Praja i.e. How the leaders and kings are, the people will be like that only."

Such that in Indian Tradition, there was a network to create work-joy culture. People used to enjoy in work. The target shown to public was performing their work by leaving the result to God. By the way, they could enjoy the work without the tension of result. The reverse order of this, is enjoying the fruit i.e. result without working. This is happening now. Corruptive methods, rank fixings, match fixings, purchasing of jobs and all methods of immorality is nothing but enjoying the fruit without working i.e. thiefting the result. I'm not saying that all the past was good. There were also good & evil. But majority proportion was good.

People were encouraged to speak truth. The truth telling personalities were worshipped as Gods, like Sri Rama. The life histories of men who practiced truth telling were treated as epics like Satya Haritschandra. The question of Sri Rama's existence and Satya Haritschandra's existence is meaningless. Whether some man, Sri Rama could live on this earth, or not, whether some man, Harris Chandra could live really in this earth, or not, whether such epic leaders are really lived persons or imaginary roles by poets, but the values what they practiced are real values. Such values and such Characters could motivate the people to practice the same values. Mahatma Gandhi is live example for it. How much inspiration he got from the story of Satya Haritschandra, we know, everybody knows.

In such case, why not the debates on the existence of roles in epics, is the mislead and misguide of public from the practice of prescribed values in epics by the coup makers i.e. CIA, ISI, Ramoji Rao and their supporters?

That's why only in past, hundreds of poets & poets had written Ramayana, Maha Bharatha, Bhagavathans in different Indian languages. No one like Ranga Nayakamma had written Ramayana Vishavruksham.

From all sides, human life style in India was in such a way to practice truth, hard working, devotion, knowledge, detachment, sacrifice and adventurous nature. Our life style, traditions, culture, festival celebration methods etc. everything used to induce will power in people. In Indian culture, sleeping without disturbance, sound sleeping without dreams used to treat as luxury i.e. Happiness. In English culture, while sleeping, having sweet dreams used to treat as happiness. That's why they used to say 'Sweet dreams' as a night wish. In Indian culture, we used to say from Childhood,"Imptho Haye Hayi ………Jo, Jo, Jo. Go sound sleep." That means, "No joy in this world. Imptho Haye means No Joy."

We won't preach our children to run after luxuries. We teach our children to enjoy in working. That's why only we wish our children at bed time to have sound sleep without dreams, to enable them to wake up in morning after complete relax and to enter into the work with increased energy. That's why only we won't wish them to gobble or to gulp luxury while sleeping i.e. in the form of sweet dreams in sleep.

That much difference is there in the attitude of Indians and others. But now, by losing that nativity, Indians are running after luxuries while in wake up and in sleeping.

Such that all the proverbs, idioms, stories, arts, epics try their level best to keep the human brain in faithful way and to prevent the human brain from evil thoughts. By inducing good thoughts in them by provoking good believes as love to faith and fear to sin, the Indian life style organized the human society in a peaceful way. It is a network. Unfortunately or strategically, it was broken down. At least now, itself, let us reconstruct it. Our life should not be with materialism. We need matter, we need money, and we need things to lead our life in comfortable way and in luxurious way. But it is not all the life. It is not the ambition of life. It is not goal of life.

Life should be with idealistic views. We must enjoy the feelings. We must enjoy the bondage. We must enjoy the belongingness. Both the materialism and idealism must be in limits in our life. Bhagavad Geetha says this limits only.

యుక్తాహార విహారస్య యుక్తచేష్టస్య కర్మసు
యుక్త స్వప్నావబోధస్య యోగో భవతి దుఃఖహా

We must practice limits in eating, sleeping, enjoying, and even in working.

Unfortunately or strategically, now people had forgotten to live with morals values. They are running after earning money.

But we have to remember. Sir Bhadra chala Ramadasa kruthi i.e. song.

"లక్షాధికారులైనా లవణా మన్నము గానీ
బంగారు కణికలు మ్రింగా లేరుగా మంచి
పలుకే బంగార మయేనా కోదండరామ"

That means,

Lakhiers, carodpathi, or milliners, can't eat gold instead of rice and salt. This word is golden word.

Is it not golden word?

Whatever manner we live, how much we earn, we can't take it with us. We can't take our body even. We can't live forever though we wish to live. In any sense, life on this earth is not permanent. How much wealth we create, whatever we give to our children, we will die one day. Though we earn wealth, who will give peace in life? Peace also we have to create like money. Earning money in materialist activity. Earning peace is idealistic activity. We need both money as well peace. Without peace we can't enjoy money as well without money, we can't get peace.

Money can be earned by physical and brain industry. Peace can be earned by morality: truth and faithful behavior. In single word, peace can be earned only with moral values.

' Here I'll narrate you an argument from Ramayana Visha Vruksham written by Ranga Nayakamma a Telugu Novelist. She narrated the story of Ramayanam with critical approach.

In the context of demanding two boons by Kaika Devi from Raja Dasaratha, she argued as "Raja Dasaratha was saying that he had so much love and affection on Rama. So, because of the departure of Rama from him, he precasted that he couldn't live. That's why he tried to please Kaika Devi and almost begged her to drop her boon as sending Rama to forest. But he didn't ready to lose his heaven opportunity, by disobeying his own promise of booms to Kaika. If he had real love on Rama, he could drop back his word of boons to Kaika and install Rama on the crown, instead of sending him to forest. He felt fear to loss the opportunity to live in heaven after death, that's why he stood on his word. Like that successfully the authoress Ranga Nayakamma picturised Raja Dasaratha as a man who had so much desire on luxuries, and happiness and he had lust to enjoy with beautiful divine women like Rambha, Urvashi etc. in the heaven.

Such that successfully or strategically, the authoress had forgotten, that Raja Dasaratha was ready to leave his life for the sake of word keeping. And it was easy for him to forget the promise, which he gave to Kaika, or disobey it bluntly instead of sending Rama to forest. But he felt fear towards sin of lie. That's why he was ready to die and died. Otherwise, if he keeps out his own promise what will happen. If the king himself, if the leader of society himself, does such, keeping away their own words without implementing, what will happen? Everybody in the society will follow it. Whenever they feel difficulty to keep their promise into implementation, they will be ready to disobey them without the fear of losing heaven or without the fear of getting hell after death. Then where will be the peace in life?

On the other hand, these authoress and other such type authors, some other fame persons argued that there was no heaven or hell. To Control the common people, some perverted, some top casts like Brahmins had created and propagated these believes of heaven and hell. That's all. There was no heaven or hell. In fact, caste-ism by birth is bad tradition. But Bhagavad Geetha and other Sanskrit literature do not support caste-ism by birth. This I'll discuss in other part of these writing.

As per their argument also they won't accept that Raja Dasaratha done correct. When the existence of heaven was uncertain, he could prefer to enjoy life on this earth so that he could disobey his promise to send Rama to forest. But he didn't it. He had commitment regarding his promise, so he preferred death. So that he preferred idealistic values such as truth and commitment of talks.

Such epics of morals, idealistic values influenced the public to lead life with morality. People can lead peaceful life with morals. Some of the morals, ideals, aims and targets, in one word attitude of public i.e. most of the people was with self-respect, self-satisfaction, self-confidence, self-X and self-Y. That means people used to prefer self i.e. Atma or spirit to rupee.

In the villager's opinion, Farmer had much importance. The king and his administration should remember that their lives depend on farmers. All the artists used to praise the farmers as 'Maa raju' [our king]. I myself had observed it in my childhood. Slowly after 30 years, the farmers himself is feeling now inferior.

In this juncture, can't we say that the public attitude was tuned to change?

In those days who ever sacrificed self-luxuries, self-wealth was treated as great person.

In these days, whoever earns much wealth is considered as great persons.

In those days, when poor or traveler asks for water, the host used to give buttermilk.

In these days, people are trying to snatch the others food.

In those days, people used to think that our faithful activities would save our children in life as well our sins would destroy their lives.

In these days, people are running to give the bundles of currency to their children without the particularity of good and evil or morality and immorality.

In those days, people were with self-respect and self-confidence.

In these days, people are with self-pity and egoistic.

In those days, people were awaritive about human relations.

In these days, people are awaritive about economic relations.

In those days, people were co-operative among all groups such as Boss vs. Sub ordinate, wife vs. husband, parents vs. children, Teacher vs. Student, host vs. guests, among neighbors, ruler vs. people, scholars vs. innocence, and artists vs. art patronizers. People had maturity to grasp spirit of the arts, language, literature and everything. People had maturity to grasp truth and logic. Common person i.e. ordinary farmer had such a priority as receiving every service of washer men, barber, brazier, oil maker, weaver etc at his doorstep. The other professionals were treated well by farmers and farmers were served well by other professionals.

But now? How we are? If anybody argue with me that there were 'no such those days' about which I narrated in the above, I agree with them.

If anybody argue with me that there was no 'Krutha Yugam' or Satyakalam at which time, people were faithful & truthful, I agree with them.

If such faithful time was not there in the past, why don't we welcome it now? Why don't we dream it to happen, and why don't we effort it to happen?
