The meaning of Satyamev Jayate is victory of truth, till today we have not understood the meaning of this more than the words. Mostly people have these words ingrained in their minds as being engraved on the bottom of the Ashok Pillar. Now one person is raising the issue and we are opening are eyes to the question. And this is the reason why I could not stop myself from writing my views on this subject. Its a matter of surprise, how a common man could utilise the power of Satyamev Jayate. It has a crucial place in the Indian ethos. While on the other hand it is us Indians who are using this code for unethical purposes.
If any of our work stops or does not get materialised the first thought in our head is-lets give some money to the person, the work shall get done. Actually in today’s day and age time is more important than money and we are ready to do anything for it. This is where we start sowing the seeds of corruption. Then we start ignoring the code of Satyamev Jayate. However much money goes into getting some work done, it doesn’t matter, but the work should not stop, this is our ethic now. Somewhere or the other, a new age has dawned. India is sure to see that day when Satyamev Jayate will truly find a place in the hearts of its people. First a politician then an actor have launched themselves into the arena of truth. From the very first day it has gotten the affirmation of the masses. It seems like non truth will no longer play the bugle in this country.
Its a matter of great pride that Star Plus broadcast the show and the first state to feature was Rajasthan. But in the next instant one felt great shame that we were so far ahead in the female infanticide race. Not just this, the rich, the upper caste and the educated are party to this crime. Major intellectuals and industrialists should participate in this journey towards truth. The industrialist is probably one category who is most affected by corruption. Today we need a leader who would not only lead the country but lead its people. Someone who understands their needs, who can fight corruption and who can create a truthful and civil society. It is he who will fulfil the task of Satyamev Jayate.
