Resignation of Arvind Kejriwal: Nishkaam karma
Is AAP deeply worried about the quality of the Indian intellectuals who interpret Shri Kejriwal’s
resignation from Chief Minister ship as betrayal and/or escapism instead of seeing it as an
example of NISHKAM KARMA YOGA. This resignation is in sharp contrast to the behavior of
the present day politicians.
Its precedence in the contemporary history is that of Subhas Chandra Bose’s resignation from
ICS. In the antiquity it is comparable to Chandragupta Maurya’s ascetic life in present day
Srobon Belgola of Karnak. Emperor Ashok’s life as a saint. Prince Gutam Buddha’s Maha
Nishkraman. And Emperor Kharbels sainthood in Kalinga.
What happens or has happened to the inner fabric of a nation whose dominating intellectual class
– product of current education system – are either unable or unwilling to appreciate the real
significance of Kejriwal’s resignation? Does AAP feel alarmed of the quality of the education
system that breeds such elements? If yes- what educational reforms do they intend to introduce?
