Bhagavadgita Verse - Treating Everyone Equally

brahmane gavi hastini
suni caiva sva-pake ca
panditah sama-darsinah

The humble sage, by virtue of true knowledge, sees with equal vision a learned and gentle brahmana, a cow, an elephant, a dog and a dog-eater.

- Bhagavadgita 5.18

I am not a sage like in the above verse. But, I treat Gandhi and KCR equally.

You need to have lot of knowledge to understand this post. If you are desperate to know it, please call me to hear discourses on this.

Wasting Time of A Big Personality

Many people say that, they like one big personality. Whenever they get chance to meet him for a second, they go and visit him, by spending few days in travel. That person is very busy in meeting all the "so called" fans of him. He hardly sleeps 1.5 hours per day. He does not get any off on weekends or holidays. In fact, on holidays, more people come to visit him.

All the "so called" fans of him say that, everyone must visit him regularly. They do not care whether that person is getting some rest or not. How can one say that, they like a person, when they never worry about whether that person is getting enough sleep or not?

Why are you going to Tirupathi?

Public Transport - Developed Country

A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It's where the rich use public transport.
- Gustavo Petro, Mayor of Bogota

I am not sure, how many people really understood this quote. In India, whenever somebody talks about equality among the people, most of the time, they mean, bringing down the rich people to the level of the poor, rather than developing poor people to the level of the rich.

In this case, socialists/communist people think this as, banning all the private vehicles and forcing everyone to use public transport. But, that is not the meaning of this.

In a developed country, the public transport is as friendly as private transport. That's why, even rich people would prefer to use public transport, since it saves lot of money and time. If the public transport is pathetic, then even poor people would have to buy their own vehicles for better transport.
