president kalam's second term

Dear Sir,
After 7 years I am reproducing this below .
It is the inevitable fate of the country’s best president because he was a

Person of
Scientific temper
Inhibition less
Dreamer of
Evolving the
To its original glory as the best among nations in all spheres.

In our nation’s welfare he took

Sincerely the
Importance of
Education and the
To march ahead.

A noble man with noble intentions in the midst of ignoble bunch of …………

It is indeed uneasy for people operating with conviction in both intelligence and integrity in the present political atmosphere as your heart will not accept what your mind rejects and your mind will not accept what your heart  rejects.

From my school days whatever topic I wrote Emerson had some appropriate quote and as usual he has again one here:-

“The one thing of value in the world is the active soul; this every man contains within him.  The soul active sees absolute truth and utters truth and creates.” In other words, the individual integrity and instinct is the thing of value in the world.  It is the true soul that sees and sustains truth alive, out of which is to come a still greater truth, the re-born social soul.

It is said that Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you respond to it. You have responded well sir.

Sir the newspaper-reading public will be puzzled by your exit, the mass opinion molders in both print and audio visual media will have their own personal views based on various factors but I am only happy that you did not allow yourself to be spoiled by a newly married couple  UPA [the two major parties in UPA] one with abominable ancestry and another with puerile pedigree both of whom have a contempt for anything or anyone contributing to national development. So it was only natural that they wanted to insult you at every juncture. Do not worry we all appreciate your wisdom as John Buchan puts it  “believe that all wisdom consists in caring immensely for a few right things, and not caring a straw about the rest.”  You have done the right thing by saying bye. I would have been surprised had you acted otherwise because  there is no right way to do the wrong thing [ accepting the version of government in this issue] . I am again proud sir that  you have done the country proud by setting a good example. As Adam Michnik says “Start doing the things you think should be done, and start being what you think society should become. Do you believe in free speech? Then speak freely. Do you love the truth? Then tell it. Do you believe in an open society? Then act in the open. Do you believe in a decent and humane society? Then behave decently and humanely.” You have once again shown your patriotism as Edward Abbey says, “A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” So, it is good thing that you have parted company with these bunch of ……….. who as Will Durant said are now aware of the fact that “It may be true that you can't fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.” Let them try their best to rule and ruin but let them not forget that nature and a few individual with inner strength will teach them a fitting lesson.
