Na Idharke Na Udharke..

Stars aren't favouring Dr. APJ Kalam any more. Only he himself n general public considers him just a scientist. So, he him self and the public neither mind , spare, protect nor instantly protest during security checks. But few still consider him a Politician. Now, Dr.Kalam is targeted from non other than his own Scientific community. Dr. Homi Sethna, equally eminent scientist, Ex Chairman of Nuclear Energy Commission & the scientist to make Pokharan Test 1974 a grand success is counting Dr. Kalam as a Politician. He scolded Dr.Kalam for having no scientific authority to certify that Pokharan 1998 was a success. Dr.Kalam had contradicted the claim by senior scientist Santhanam that Pokharan 1998 was of Limited success. Dr.Sethna shockingly went on to the extent to accuse Dr.Kalam for not having any knowledge of Nuclear Science and advised him to refrain from cheap publicity. Now, thats too much to be listened to. If Dr. Sethna is wise enough to count Dr. Kalam as a man of Politics, how could Dr. Sethna neglect international political correctness shown by Dr. Kalam in erasing Santhanam who might be scientifically correct but politically dude ? It smells that Dr. Sethna has some old personal unsettled rivalry account with Dr.Kalam. It would be worth digging up to check if Dr. Sethna has lost Presidential candidature to Dr.Kalam. As a Nation its a National insult. For reasons not worth, any one can belittle a person who is your ex president is mindless misuse of democracy. Why this is happening ? Its because of lack of political training to Dr.Kalam. When you appoint some one out side Politics as the President, you must have a solid training programme to reshape the mind set of that person. He must be made forget that he is any one else than The man in Chief of a Sovereign Nation. Routinely, he must be adequately supported with armour of Protocols. When he is alone, he must be able to show the strength and wisdom to behave like an ex President of a Nation. Imagine, what would happen if some one tries to body check Lalu ? Instinctively he will undoubtedly act like an Owner and not a scientist wearing Id card around the neck or as a general Subject of this Nation. We must understand that Rulers must act like Rulers. Politicians are the rulers. But they are so horrible as no training is available. Once, Shivaji Maharaj was made to surrender all most of his State and forts to the mighty army of Aurangzeb lead by Mirza Jaysingh who had won the battle. Maharaj was captivated and was to be produced in the Court of Aurangzeb. Jaysingh knew that in spite of the defeat Maharaj would never bow in front of Aurangzeb. So he tactfully tried to navigate Maharaj thru a low gate, almost like a window, where in any one would have to kneel down to pass thru. Maharaj instantly sensed the trap and first put his left foot thru that gate and without leaning from the waist, with full blown chest , entered like a Lion. Thats how the Sovereignty and Self esteem must be protected by the Top Most Leader of any Nation. But now,our Nation is in the hands of Politicians who aren't really Politicians but merely power hungry liches who find no shame in behaving Sar Zuka Sakate hai lekin Sar kata sakate Nahi.. Who find nothing wrong in Kandahar Episode.. who find nothing wrong in scapegoating a gentleman and person with purest chastity like Dr. Kalam. Neither Congress nor BJP who had unanimously selected Dr. Kalam as our President, have said a word to protect the esteem of National Ex President Dr. Kalam. Pitiably left all alone by all those who lifted him off, his pre launch ground collegues are now biting him. He appears to be belonging to No man's land. Na idhar ke Na udhar ke. Scientists see Politician in him to bash squarely and Politicians mutely watch him simply as altitude loosing debris of rocket booster duly falling off towards ocean after completing designed task. The National Interest thus is brutally crushed by our pygmy politicians and absent minded Nuclear scientists gone Critical Click Here to know more about What Dr.Homi Sethna is saying

Dr.Kalam is a gentleman and was lured into the politics by the same gentelmanly weakness, how to say no. Anyway, being a politician is not a sin and he cannot be compared to the likes of Lalus. Your observations about Dr Sethna may be right. Same is the case with Dr.Santhanan, it appears. Who gained by such a disclosure? Anyway politiecs has its roots firmly deep down every sphere of our life and scientific community is no exception to this. Wittingly or otherwise,Dr Kalam shown the scientific community the other world after retirement and who's to blame? We shoud stop talking or writing about Chatrapati Shivaji...

Lalus example for ease to imagine and for distinguishing Gentleman and A Politician. Explain Why Shivaji Maharaj to be avoided? U ended abruptly. We must have right Ideals.
