We talk about “Hindutva”, “Bhartiyata” but remain glued to our chairs shamelessly. Former Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dikshit is very selfish. She was defeated in the Delhi assembly election by Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal after ruling the state for 15 years. After the defeat Sheila resigned from the post of Chief Minister but soon she persuaded Congress president Sonia Gandhi to offer her the post of Kerala governor. Do you need any better example of selfishness? Narendra Modi must throw her out but the question arises, why should Modi take every decision himself?

Home Minister Rajnath Singh can perform this job. It is absolutely un- ethical to stick to the governor’s post after the mediocre performance of Congress in the assembly and general election. The same aspect is applicable to K Sankaranarayanan governor of Maharashtra. He refused to quit as he didn’t receive any official communication to demit the office. The governor also said that he would only step down if he will only step down after receiving an instruction from an appropriate decision making authority. Sankaranarayan, a Congress leader from Kerala, was made the Governor of Maharashtra for the second time in May, 2012. Prior to that, he had served in Jharkhand and Nagaland for three years.

BJP should ensure that only the party loyalists do not get the post of governor. Engineers, Doctors, Scientists, Defence personnel and police forces should also be considered for this job. I saw Aziz Qureshi, governor of Uttar Pradesh walking. Look at his poor fitness. Is there no one else in India fit to become the governor of UP?
We need to popularize medicines like Ayurveda, Unani and Homeopathy in India. I have already written to Nitin Gadkari, Minister of road transport and highways to ensure that at least one shop is opened at four major ports like Mumbai, Kandla, Visakhapatnam, Paradeep for selling ayurvedic preventive medicines like Triphala,
Chyawanprash, etc; which are very useful as preventive medicines. Our third engineer from Phillipino used to cough a lot. I offered him two jars of chyawanprash and his health improved within a span of two months. They also liked “Shilajit” which is beneficial if consumed with milk.

I will ask the governors to read the Razor’s edge by W. Somerset Maugham for understanding about the values of renunciation. Here we see people who have past the age of 75 like Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi lurking around for a chair.
