Open Letter to my former political mentor Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe

Dear Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe,

CC: All the distinguished and eminent invitees for National Emergency Meeting in Delhi

 
Greetings for the Engish New Year!
 
I hope the new year as celebrated globally brings new cheer and churning to your thinking. I hope by the time we meet again and this time with Amit Shah, Hon. Union Home Minister, you would have summoned the courage to stand up for the truth and further prevail upon the Bharatiya Janta Party to break away from the dull and insipid divisive and distractive politics to polarise the country into Pro-CAA-NRC (a byword for rabid Islamophobia and Adharmic) and Anti-CAA-NRC (Truly Indian and Dharmic) camps even though there is a vain and desperate attempt to present it otherwise.

I had a detailed talk with your 26-year old Personal Secretary Ravi Soni, who is far more balanced and sensible than what your public posturing as a BJP mouthpiece might suggest. This is a dark and morbid phase in your life in more than 7 years that I have known and followed your public statements since. I sincerely hope that this is the absolute rock bottom for you and that you don’t intend to stoop any lower.

To update you on further developments, spiritual leader and spearhead of the Ganga Satyagraha Pujya Swami Shivanand Saraswati Ji at Matri Sadan in Haridwar has shared his written consent for this strategy to take up a comprehensive set of national issues and to summon Emergency meeting on IMMEDIATE basis. I had suggested 3rd of January as in the earlier email below, and accordingly, Shri ID Khajuria, a voice of sanity, sanguinity and stellar statesmanship from Jammu and Kashmir is arriving to Delhi on 3rd January morning and we shall be meeting at Gandhi Peace Foundation at ITO at 1030am in the morning. Given the grave and fast deteriorating humanitarian crises in Jammu and Kashmir due to poorly-conceived and knee-jerk policies of your government, we would like to meet Mr. Amit Shah and Mr. Narendra Modi wherever they are, AS WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED BY LUMINARIES AND KEEN DELHI OBSERVERS THAT BJP IS NOW A 2-MAN PARTY. 

 
I shall earnestly request you to arrange the meeting for Shri Khajuria on his URGENT Delhi visit when people in Jammu are under debilitating duress and dire distress. 
 
I shall also invite you to accompany 15-20 Ganga activists who will be leaving for Haridwar on 4th January for the 2-day National Meet on saving Ma Ganga and 22-year old Sadhvi Padmavati who has been on an indefinite fast since 15th of December last year in this chilling winter in North India.

I deeply and wholeheartedly thank you for being my political mentor till the time I caught Arun Jaitley’s bluff and bluster on bullet train at Vigyan Bhavan 2 years back. You have avoided meeting me since despite my repeated and relentless requests. I share this with deep hurt and anguish that you are letting the country and humanity down by turning away from the truth and from Dharma.

This is both my ultimate gratitude and final warning to you to roll back CAA-NRC and address the first 4 critical issues before we take up the 5th issue at a suitable time in a more congenial and candescent environment. Hope you will not disappoint us for this last time.

Sincerely Yours,

Emergency Meeting in New Delhi
on Critical National Issues

 
Date & Time: Friday 3rd January 2020 from 10 am to 5 pm (Lunch 1230pm-130pm)
Venue: 8, Ashoka Road, New Delhi (to be confirmed by tomorrow in case of any change) 
 
Agenda: Comprehensive and Non-Linear Adaptive solution for Top 5 critical links for multifarious problems of Post-British India in a highly globalized world today in the LACE-GAIA Earth Parliament framework. LACE stands for Localised Abundance & Circular Economies in the villages, forests, and cities and GAIA stands Global Assembly of Indigenous and Autonomous communities in the villages, forests, and cities.
1. Indefinite fast by 22-year old Sadhvi Padmavati since Sun 15 Dec 2019 to save dying river Maa Ganga due to unchecked pollution and obstructions belying promises and claims made by the Govt of India and by the Uttarakhand Chief Minister.
2. Grave humanitarian crises in Jammu & Kashmir and escalating tensions on Indo-Pak border
3. Killer Air Pollution in the national capital of Delhi and 97% of India
4. Deepening distress in farming, rural and forest areas due to systemic over-exploitation and suppression of human rights and the attendant problem of rising unemployment and population burden on urban areas for factories, roads, and housing which in turn put pressure on forests, pastures, and farming land in a vicious cycle.
5. Raging controversy and protests across India on CAA-NRC which is largely perceived as divisive and distractive and poorly timed.
 
Rationale: The express purpose of calling this Emergency meeting at a short notice is five-fold. One is the indefinite fast by Sadhvi Padmavati to save the dying river Ma Ganga which is in its 3rd week now and a national meeting at Matri Sadan in Haridwar on 5-6 January 2020. Two is the grave humanitarian crises as narrated by a large number of people from diverse organizations from Jammu and Kashmir at a meeting last week on 22nd December 2019 at Gandhi Peace Foundation in New Delhi and their urgent cry for help from rest of the country in the national capital. Three, killer air pollution is continuing unabated due to the governmental failure to pin down the fanatic Car Culture as the criminal culprit as elaborated in the LACE framework and instead of blaming the already distressed farmers. Four is self-explanatory in Agenda #4 above. Five is the need to dissuade the conflict-ridden parties to climb down from their rigid stances and to create an amicable and congenial atmosphere involving neighboring countries for a peaceful and harmonious resolution. So far, I have been sharing my feedback with Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe and a few key leaders who I had met within BJP. This is for the first time however, I feel an urgent and critical necessity to rise above party lines in the larger national interests.  My introduction to Vinay ji was through this vision paper in 2013 and later shared with Ramlal ji.

Approach* :
More and more often, solutions to complex human conflict require complex solutions—solutions involving diverse organizations such as diverse ideologies, police forces, first responders, other government departments, non-government organizations, civil society, and militaries. As a result, the politics of these operations can be Byzantine, the logistics overwhelming, and the moral and ethical considerations dizzying in their implications.

This deeply perceptive comment reflects an understanding of what theorists of complex adaptive systems call “the law of requisite variety”—the proposition that there is a positive correlation between the complexity of a problem, the complexity of actors generating solutions to the problem, and the complexity of the solutions themselves. According to this law, a successful adaptive system must have a repertoire of behaviors at least as wide as the range of behaviors expressed by its surrounding environment. To widen its repertoire of behaviors, in turn, an adaptive system must increase its internal complexity.

In large measures in the Indian context though, a conventional mechanistic ontology—and a concomitant “management” approach to policy—underpin thinking about war, peace, and international security. This ontology assumes that conflict systems have relatively easily discernible boundaries, that the behavior of a system is an additive consequence of the behavior of its parts, that effect is proportional to cause, that it is possible to discriminate among multiple causes in terms of their causal power, and that the “gold standard” of explanation involves the identification of a single, necessary and sufficient cause of a given phenomenon.

These assumptions are often invalid. Conflict systems are often fundamentally “complex” in that they are characterized by feedbacks, causal openness, causal synergy (interactivity), the disproportionality of cause and effect (i.e., nonlinear behavior), and contingency. At a time when most people in India seem to be overwhelmed with the complexities that unwittingly pits them into binary camps of BJP-Congress and Hindu-Muslim to name just two of several other fault lines, the need for this approach is unprecedented and might well mark a new beginning in conflict resolution in this country that befits India’s traditional role as Vishva Guru Bharat.

मेरे सपनों का भारत

अब न विदेशपरस्त विपक्ष बचा
शेष रहा न कोई बहाना।
स्वदेशी के उर्ध्वगामी मार्ग पर
है हमें अब लौट आना।।

गौ आधारित कृषि हो
हो कृषि आधारित उद्यम।
बने भारत एक बार फिर से
सुन्दर समृद्ध और सक्षम।।

अंत्योदय तक साधन पहुंचे
शिक्षा स्वास्थ्य हो निःशुल्क।
स्वदेशी हो भोजन, भजन, भवन
भाषा भूषा स्वदेशी से सुसज्जित हो मुल्क।।

राम मंदिर, गौ एवं गंगा जैसे
सांस्कृतिक धरोहर हो संरक्षित।
हर क्षेत्र का समुचित विकाश हो
आजीवन हो आजीविका आरक्षित।।

dawn3
ग्राम, गुरुकुल, नगर, अरण्य हों
संस्कृतमय हो जन जीवन।
वेद उपनिषद गीता की ज्ञानगंगा में
प्रकाशमय हो सबका मन।।

जल जंगल जमीन जानवर पर
हो स्थानीय ग्राम नगर समाज का अधिकार।
राजा प्रजा की सेवा करे
खुशहाल हो कारीगरी और कारोबार।।

वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम के दर्शन से
पर्यावरण संकट से हम जाएँ उबर।
विश्वगुरु भारत से सम्मान हो
सोने की चिड़िया के उग आएं पर।।

स्वदेशी का विश्व प्रतिमान बने भारत
सहेज कर अपनी थाती।
होली हो फूलों के खुशबुदार रंगों से
दीपावली हो संग दीया और बाती।।

चंद्र विकाश
स्वदेशी विचारक
