As India, originally known as Bharat, celebrates its 67th Republic Day today, anyone, who knows the correct history of this land, looks up with great hopes that the country will play its role in the upliftment of the world. This is the day we can be proud of those great personalities that built India’s national pride.
In ancient times, the world was ruled by righteous kings, but in this age, Kaliyuga, due to a serious lack of qualified persons like King Yughisthira and King Parikshit, who could rule the entire world, by the arrangement of the Lord, democracies have come into play. While democracy has its own advantages, if not governed well, it can create endless chaos as we see these days.
“It is ironic that in modern democracies not only do the leaders consider themselves universal controllers, but the mass of people, considering the leaders merely their representatives rather than the representatives of God, also consider themselves, as a people, to be the controllers of their nation. Thus the chastisement mentioned in this verse has become unprecedentedly applicable to people in general in the modern world.” (Srila Prabhupada, SB 10.27 purport)
We hope that India, which has witnessed many great personalities, and even the Supreme Lord Himself, walking on its land, will be able to guide the world in a right direction.
