Dear MKR

My views are:

May I ask politely:
Is your post ihn the below an expression of theosophical teaching or is it an attempt to involve theosophical Seekers at this forum with politics?

  In a very unusual development, a Guru in India is shaking up the Indian
  Government. Only in India, something like this can happen. Here is a news


  New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, who has threatened to field candidates in
  every Lok Sabha constituency in 2014, has stopped the Union government in
  its tracks with a set of demands, ranging from the serious to the bizarre.

  The demands of the jetsetting Baba â whose acolytes recently bought him a
  little Scottish island to open an ashram â include:

  â Tough Lokpal Bill, with a provision for death sentence for the corrupt,
  especially corrupt officials

  â Immediate return of all black money stashed away in tax havens abroad to
  the country

  â Declaring all wealth in foreign countries being held illegally by Indians
  as national property and charging those with such accounts under the
  sedition laws

  â Abolishing Rs.1,000 and Rs.500 currency notes

  â Disabling the operations of any bank which belongs to a country that is a
  tax haven

  â Replacing the British-inherited system of governance, administration,
  taxation, education, law and order with a swadeshi alternative

  â Reforming the electoral system to ensure that the Prime Minister is
  directly elected by people

  â Ensuring that all citizens declare annually their incomes

  â Bringing income-tax details under the Right to Information Act

  â Increasing substantially the Minimum Support Price of grains

  â Making wages of different categories of labourers uniform across the

  â Revoking the Land Acquisition Act, as farmers should not be deprived of
  their land for industry

  â Promoting Hindi at the expense of English.
