Condensed from Talks by Pujya Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakarji from RishiVani.
Do you want to build a nation or just suck on the nation?
People in power can easily suck the nation rather than build a nation.
A CEO in a big national public- service unit near Bangalore, simply plundered the unit by offering many hard earned machines of the unit for cheap sale and destroyed the factory.
More than the CEO, it was the workers who guarded the factory. It was their bread and butter being stolen.
It is time for the younger generation to build and protect the nation from people in power who suck it dry.
Unions are present not for merely protecting the workers’ interests but to protect national interests.
Unions must ask managers hard questions on management.
Railway unions must ask for faster trains rather than asking for slower trains.
If people at the grass root level cheat, certainly they cannot question the big elephants at the top for looting.
Now junior officers must write notes and comment on senior people’s actions in public forums and newspapers for timely action.
Democracy has to start at the grass roots.
Nobody knows better than the people working in an office as to what is going on in that office. If they collude with the big suckers by sharing power, the nation becomes completely corrupt. This is what the nation has become. Some government employees have become like a Raja of 2G proportions.
It is not so much for the public to monitor the officers and ministers. It is for the junior most workers to uphold law and order in their own offices and work spaces.
Workers who work only for building the nation alone will make the difference.
Purity has to start from within and not from without.
When will the mothers teach their children to care for their neighbour’s welfare?
When will students study for earning knowledge rather than just for marks?
When will teachers inspire students to build a great nation?
When will workers go to work with the aim of nation building?
When will people take care of the nation’s roads? Can’t we clean up the road as we walk along?
Should we work against the interest of the communities we live in and steal what we can?
It is not governments that keep a country clean and caring, it is the small man on the street that does so.
Take care of your street, the nation will soon shine.
You can make a difference, however small you are.
