Deference and respect and awe-filled genuflections

Also, about the deferential kow-towing to Pranab-da. I have observed and experienced that the victim in such situations, the moment he/she has the opportunity, often turns around and looks for others to give him/her the same deference and respect and awe-filled genuflections. They feel that they have paid their dues to Pranab-da and so now others in the same "junior" position to themselves as they were vis-a-vis Pranab-da need to compensate them in the same manner. After all, why should others get away and enjoy equality and freedom when they themselves could not? That would be patently unfair according to them. Since they have paid their dues and played by the rules of the game, others cannot go scott free without paying the necessary toll. From what I have seen MDG etc. are following this human psychological pattern to the T. So I hope you will understand me if I take the claims of the dawn of the golden age of guru-bhai-hood and equality post-Pranab with a massive helping of salt. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 9:32 PM, October 20, 2010
