POLITICS AND NATIONAL INTERESTS

ON NATIONAL INTERESTS AND PLAYING POLITICS WHILE FIGHTING A COMMON ENEMY – COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Paradoxically speaking, while we delve on national interests v/s selfish political motives, we have to understand threadbare the two phraseology so as to understand the difference between the two and then reach to a conclusive decision as to which path to be adopted.

Here i have delved on the two aspects as follows:-

NATIONAL INTERESTS

Significantly when the question of national interests are taken into consideration, our new norm should be to make concerted efforts in upholding all those parameters which are paramount and essential for its growth and development. Those aspects which are needed for its safety and security should not be lost sight of in any event. Here we have to rise up from our narrow and parochial thinking while the question of respecting NATIONAL INTERESTS are taken into account. No politics should come in the path when the question of National Interests are taken into cognizance. Even need is to give SUPREME SACRIFICE even that should not deter us from achieving the end of fulfillment of NATIONAL INTERESTS.

NO SELFISHNESS WHILE FIGHTING A COMMON ENEMY

SELFISH POLITICAL INTERESTS

It has been observed that some of the political leaders for getting momentary political benefit utter or do something which proves counterproductive to the overall interests of a Nation. For example, when fighting a common enemy as Novel Coronvvirus Pandemic, no political party should showcase any contrarian viewpoint which is construed as negative one and goes against the NATIONAL INTERESTS. It should always be borne in mind that every country have inherent weaknesses and potentials. Our efforts should be to highlight and exploit our inherent potentials and ignore the weaker areas while FIGHTING THE COMMON ENEMY such as has been done by each country presently. Nothing should be done or remotely uttered which goes against the very spirit of NATIONAL INTERESTS. Opposition is important for any democracy but when the question of fighting war against VIRUS or any other common enemy then all self-interests should be forgotten and common interests should be supreme.

Taking into consideration the above facts, I suggest that we should take cohesive and united course of action while fighting a common enemy. Politics could be pursued later on when there is nothing to fight against the common enemy.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
