Yes, It is true Loku Hamuduruwane* ‘Politics is something Very Bitter’; exploring the bitter side of POLITICS
‘Pemini duk peni rasai’ (The sorrow that comes your way is sweet or tastes like bee honey) some, often say so, for many reasons. For a farmer it is no easy to expect a box full of rice unless he invest his sweat without any stinginess. You cannot expect any fruits without planting any fruit trees. Similarly, what you get as a result gets the size of what you invest’.
Some, also use idioms that are very popular among villagers or among all sets of people, specially the ones who mostly associate with their specific, colloquial languages. Unfortunately, I know only Sinhalese language though I like to mention similar things from other colloquial languages
‘Kandak neggoth pallamak’ if you climb a hill / mountain, what you meet next is a slope
that is small description is about ‘idioms’ related to ‘hard side of life’ but what do you think about ‘idiotic decisions that some takes?
I recently read that ‘Former President’ was not provided with adequate Security support when he was addressing the Public.
My question is whether you need to care about ‘party politics’ or about other important things?
Whose responsibility is that? Providing Adequate Security Support? Is it the responsibility of the Defense Secretary, Commissioners of POLICE, DIG’s of particular areas, Chiefs of Armed Forces, The Head of the Country?
Now, after changing the ‘Executive Constitutions’ remained /existed, some of the responsibilities related to ‘SECURITY’, were handed over to certain, certain authorities / positions / personals, thinking that they would do the needful
Am I wrong?
That is wrong. It is not like you providing security for any candidate , you have a far more responsibility over ‘VIP’ personalities / former heads of countries and other. Specially, if you know ‘security related facts more than the ordinary civilians’ you must take fair decisions. You have the ‘intelligence that we do not have’ , if you like to view it beyond your ordinary intelligence.
What went wrong then, the Decision taken to change the constitution or the abilities and responsibilities of the people responsible?
Ithin ape ahamuduruwane …………………
You are absolutely right. POLITICS is something very seriously bitter, it has entered into ‘what’, let me not write. Read above paragraphs. Sorry to say, that is what I realized after reading it.
Perhaps , hamuduruwane, You are very well aware of ‘the true meaning of HUNGER’ not just because you experienced hunger due to the ‘Hunger strike’ you practiced recently ? I am not saying it because you know or have heard about ‘ suneetha’, sopaka’ more than we do.
Most do not get chances to feel what hunger is, unless they chosen to practice such ‘strategies’ , ape hamuduruwane I am not blaming or pointing my finger at you. Even, the poor do not miss the ‘dan seettuwa’’, they do that not just because they are afraid of ‘SINs’ they do so because they respect you. And most importantly they offer you even a plate full of cooked rice from the last bit of grain available at hoe because you are a member of the Party of the LORD BUDDHA
Yes, it is true ‘POLITICS makes people feel that ‘life is bitter’, let me explain the reasons. Can you see that some people are ‘politically separated’ from each other because of so called politics?
According to ‘Buddhism’ we know that we need to practice ‘middle path’, ‘Maddhyama Prathipadawa’ but tell me, honestly, ape hamuduruwane ‘could you name a single person who wears the ‘robe’ practicing ‘maddhayama prathipadawa?
They are attached to their favorite parties and tying ‘ pirith nula’ / the blessed thread around the hands of their favorite politicians, ‘thinking that they would win’. It is alright but think, how they support their favorite parties according to Buddhism, we are not allowed to talk about weaknesses or weak sides of people in public thinking of supporting a single party. I am not talking about ‘smoothly criticizing’ or pointing out errors in a fair manner.
No! I am not complaining, I am just collating facts and keeping them before you that is all
And you know ape hamuduruwane, ‘Nahee werena werani’ / hate cannot be aided by hate’, did you really see people practicing it, within last six months or so , what did you really experience in the political – local not world
I am not pointing my finger at any single individual. If you take a party, you get many people in it. Each have their own sets of attitudes, ways of believing things, addressing people, dealing with people yet if you are in a particular party ‘ you need to have a one moto’, vision
Don’t you think so?
It is sad to see that ‘you find no single party members with ‘no separation attitude’. I find no pure UNP, I find no ‘pure SLFP’ thanks to who ever, what so ever they did, and you find gembas (Frongs) in them not any other creatures. I am not talking about the handsome frogs I knew since about more than one half decades
Often you find gembas wearing the cloths of the lions but mentally they are within other ‘parties’ but thinking of all material stuff they get they are with ‘money oriented parties’ or west love’ parties
I know what west want. Example, the President of the very United States (the policeman of the world) does not want someone disobey him on top seat, as president of any country
What do you say, Mr. President?
Do you agree or disagree?
I do not know what Prime Minister ‘Modi’ thinks and expects these days, wishes these days, with regard to ‘current political situation’ / Election to be held
I do not think that you always want someone who sends karunka, processed here to India. I assume that you expect not only politically or culturally blended ‘head’, but also a head ‘economically bending towards ‘India’ not towards any other part of the world. But Prime Minister Modi can always be flexible, am I right
But , you know we always go to our next door /neighbor if something lack inside home. Sometimes for a half a coconut, some spices, for a tin full of ‘rice’. WHY, because they are our neighbours. Do you get my point? Neighbours always remain as neighbours’
Sometimes people say’ your enemies enemy is my friend’ but I often do not understand ‘what applies in ‘bitter politics’
When it comes to ‘Zonal Security’, India cannot think separately as a country but as a member of the region, also as a member of world who expects a peaceful world with no terror’. Some topics do not get expired.
I do not know why, all of a sudden I talk of India. I guess, it is because if I talk of West it is little unfair if I do not talk about the region we live.
Am I right?
I do not know how India uses her ‘tool of motivation’ this time that is what matter to me
I do not think that children can survive eating Karka matti only, they need box full of grains at home, at least few kilos of them to fix their meals. We must not always think entrepreneurly or thinking of Promoting PIZZA or Stock Markets, we need to think of the retail markets as well. Reducing some prices of veggies and rice ‘SPECIALLY DURING ELECTION SEASON’ won’t help PEOPLE. WE WANT A STEADY PRICE FOR EVERY CONSUMER PRODUCT’ / essential / needs daily.
Why, it took this long to reduce the prices that you leaders are ‘boasting of price reduces on stages’. Why couldn’t you reduce them within the ‘period of 100 days? You reduced some of the things but were they something that we terribly needed?
Life is bitter, knowing that they reduced the prices of ‘coriander‘/ kottamalli. I know that some are waiting to offer us glasses of coriander, lets see?
Everything happens within the theory of ‘atalo dahama’. Am I right ape hamuduruwane?
Duka sepa nithi perale riya saka lesa loke (the sorrow and The Happiness is rolling like a wheel of a carriage and it takes turns) such things are moving from place to place, person to person
I do not know what lead our loku haamuduruwo to say so knowing the bana dahama, atalo dahama more than we do
‘Sabbe satta Bhawantu Suki tatta’!
(*Head Priest of the Temple. The head priest of the Nagaviharaya Temple recently shared his views on Politics has told ‘deshapalanaya titta wela’ Politcs has become something bitter for me’)
