Subhash Chandra Agrawal for BeyondHeadlines
Kudos to Indian media for exposing blind-faith of religion in performing special ‘puja’ of white goat on ‘Amawasya’ by Pawan Bansal and his wife for saving his chair as Union Railway Minister, justifying that even God cannot be flattered by wrong-doers. If such ‘pujas’ could be effective, then perhaps India would have easily won even 1962 Indo-China war and rest other wars without sacrificing lives of so many soldiers. Rather India could become hyper-power leaving even US behind by establishing a special Ministry for worship in national and public interest!
Numerology, astrology, Vastu-Shastra amongst politicians is otherwise causing heavily to the exchequer when many new occupants of government-bungalows get lot of expense done by Central Public Works Department (CPWD) on advice of their astrologers.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee even misused his position as the caretaker Prime Minister when he managed bypassing all norms and rules in re-numbering his post-retirement government-bungalow from ‘8’ to ‘6-A’ Krishna Menon Marg (New Delhi) in an unprecedented manner never seen before. Concerned authorities at Union Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) should undo the wrong by re-numbering this bungalow as ‘8’. No structural-change like shifting of gates and others should be allowed in government-bungalows in future.
