Let us have such good public figuresThe highly celebrated singer, Shri SP Balasubramaniam is fighting for his life, after having tested positive for Corona. The entire film industry is praying for his survival. Some politicians, including those from the ruling party at the Center, have also tested positive. The social media is full of prayers in the opposite direction. Some have ventilated all their anger that such persons should die!!
Not so long ago, even the ruling party had one fabulous personality. His name was Vajpayee, the former PM of India. The imperious Jayalalitha wanted all her corruption cases to be withdrawn. He refused to budge. He was widely respected across the political spectrum. The National road network was a significant achievement of his. Contrast this with the present situation. Look at the abuses hurled at a famous towering personality. We need public figures who can actually be seen to be doing good to all. We do not need politicians who can flame hatred among people. The present situation is an opportunity for some people to reform themselves.
