Universal Ideal

The present age has given us a lot of comforts due to the advancement of Science & technology, exploring, attitude and approach in every aspect of life. But what we have lost is something much more precious. Peace of mind, human relation, human values. We painfully experience deterioration in moral and ethical values. People in general display, dishonesty, hypocrisy, and greed in all walks of life. The craze for materialistic gains keeps us immersed in endless anxiety, sorrows and suffering right from the individual to society at large. Money was and is important even today. But what we are experiencing is that in by-gone days people earned to live. Whereas in this so-called modern society, we live to earn only at the cost of others. Universal Ideal

Our beloved motherland was the land of sages, seers, and saints who have propagated the spiritual way of life through various principles for individuals to attain the goal of life i.e. Dharma, Artha, Kama, & Moksha. In the present context, the all fulfilling ideology of Sri Sri Thakur, the Purusottam https://gyanajyoti.com/2020/12/21/sat-guru-the-kaula-the-saying-of-sree-sree-thakur/ of the age has a greater relevance today. He has taught us the transformation process from Manhood to Godhood. Unless and until every individual is reformed, in attitude, behavior, and action no plan & program for all-round development of the society and nation can be materialized. In this context, I am quoting a speech delivered by our beloved president Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kallam at Hyderabad a few days back which can throw some light on our thought, speech, action, and way of life. Universal Ideal

I have three visions for India. In 3000 years of history, people from all over the world have come and invaded us, captured our lands, conquered our minds. From Alexander onwards, the Greeks, the Turks, the Moguls, the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Dutch, all of them came looted us, took over what was ours. Yet we have not done this to any other nation. We have not conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, their history and tried to force our way of life on them. Why? Because we respect the freedom of others. That is why my first vision is that of FREEDOM. I believe that India got its first vision of this in 1857 when we started the war of independence It is this freedom that we must protect and nurture and build on. If we are not free, no one will respect us. Universal Ideal

My second vision for India is DEVELOPMENT. For fifty years we have been a developing nation. It is time we see ourselves as a developed nation. We are among the top 5 nations of the world in terms of GDP We have a 10 percent growth rate in most areas. Our poverty levels are falling. Our achievements are being globally recognized today. Yet we lack the self-reliant & self-assured. Isn’t this incorrect?

I have a THIRD vision, India must stand up to the world. Because I believe that unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. Only strength respects strength. We must be strong not only as a military power but also as an economic power. Both must go hand-in-hand. Universal Ideal

My good fortune was to have worked with three great minds. Dr. Vikram Sarabhai of the Dept. of space, Professor Satish Dhawan, who succeeded him, and Dr. Brahm Prakash, father of nuclear material. I was lucky to have worked with all three of them closely and consider this milestone in my career: was given the opportunity to be the project the great opportunity of my life. I see four milestones in my carrier.

ONE twenty years 1 spent in ISRO. director for India’s first satellite lunch vehicle, SLV3. The one that launched Rohini. These years played a very important role in my life as a Scientist.

TWO After my ISRO years. 1 have joined DRDO and got a chance to be a part of India’s missile program. It was my second bliss when Agni met its mission requirement in 1994. Universal Ideal

THREE The Dept. of Atomic Energy and DRDO had this tremendous partnership in the recent nuclear tests on May 11 and 13. This was the third bliss. The joy of participating with my team in these nuclear tests and proving to the world that India can make it, that we are no longer a developing nation but one of them. It made me feel very proud as an Indian. The fact that we have now developed for Agni a re-entry structure, for which we have developed this new material. A very light material called Carbon-Carbon.

FOUR: One day an orthopedic surgeon from Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences visited my laboratory. He lifted the material and found it so light that he took me to his hospital and showed me his patients. There were these little girls and boys with heavy metallic calipers weighing over three Kg. each, dragging their feet around. He said to one please remove the pain of my patients. In three weeks we made these Floor reaction Orthopedist 300 gram calipers and took them to the orthopedic center. The children didn’t believe their eyes. From dragging around a three kg. load on their legs, they could now move around. Their parents had tears in their eyes. That was my fourth bliss. Universal Ideal

Why is the media here so NEGATIVE? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strength, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in remote sensing satellites. We are the second-largest producer of wheat. We are the second-largest producer of rice. Look at Dr. Sudarsan, he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed with the bad news and failures and disasters. was in Tel Aviv once and was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert land into an orchid and granary. It was this inspiring picture that every man woke up to. The details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside the newspapers, buried among other news. In India, we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime. Why are we so Negative? Another question why are we as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign TVs, we want foreign things? We want foreign technology. Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance ? 1 was in Hyderabad giving this lecture when a 14-year-old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is. She replied I want to live in a developed India. For her, you and I will have to build this developed India. You must proclaim: India is not an under-developed nation, it is a highly developed nation. Allow me to come back with vengeance.”

The need of the hour is the harmonious integration of economic, political, social environmental, cultural, and overall spiritual dimensions to solve the multifarious problems humanity is facing today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satsang_(Deoghar)

Every Indian wants to see a spiritually vibrated developed India. This is only possible, If we accept Sri Sri Thakur, the fulfiller the best of the age as our Universal ideal.
