Going to solve what the religious leaders and politicians could not, are we? Heck yes. If I am going to be the armchair journalist, let me at least take on the big problems. After all, I am not the one who needs votes, so if anything, I have more rights than any of the so-called leaders of the country to suggest solutions.
The essence of everything I have to suggest here, is in the beginning. It is there at the beginning because there is no editor here to tell me about the inverted or lopsided pyramids of writing something.
Shree Krishna temple is more than hundred years in existence, before India got its freedom, or before the word corruption and Indian politics amalgamated. There is history which proves that the said temple is in existence for several years. The idols of the temple and their sculptures itself proves that the said temple is a part of antique which is well protected under archeological department. The temple is also part and partial of Sion fort which is very adjacent and touching the Sion fort of Shivaji Maharaj. There are several histories which prove that this temple is one of unique piece and known for his various miracle as a ‘jaagrutsthaan’ which requires to be marked as a heritage.
That’s the temple many of us go to, during our day to day life, praying for riches, success, safety and prosperity or well just for some peace of mind.
In 2007, Under some highway act, the temple received a notice saying that a part of the temple premise will be acquired and demolished for the road widening of the highway. How about those undeveloped areas which still do not have a proper tar road? Or those areas where the a whole society has been asking for a proper road development? A gaucherie to deal with I say.
Then again, if that wasn’t enough, over a year ago, the temple authorities came to know that the ancient temple premise was sold to a builder, and ever since this fight for safe guarding the temple has been on.
All this boils to but one question that I ask myself and everyone out there, is greed, money, power everything one needs? I think not. Let’s join hands fellow Indians. Let’s hold our ground. Enough said, it’s time to unite. It’s time to fight for our rights. Jai Shree Krishna.
