== RE: STORY OF DEMON’S KITCHEN & SS DELHI ==

~ Part 2 ~

(This is the second letter in this series; a link to the first letter is below; the following text is an excerpt from the first letter. – Eds)

“When margiis attend DMS, they go for 3 days. But Wts allot 7 days for their stay at DMS. They have 2 days before the actual DMS, 2 days after, as well as the 3 main days of DMS. So they stay at Ananda Nagar for a total of 7 days.

Unfortunately at the recent Ranchi DMS gathering in Ananda Nagar, the mass of workers paid Delhi SS (Ranchi), i.e. Dada Amaleshananda, for their food and meals, yet SS shut down the kitchen during DMS – i.e. the middle 3 days. So general workers were not given food during this period; plus there was a water shortage. Yet side by side SS Dada arranged for a special chef to prepare food for top dadas.

There were many issues and certainly one key matter is: “haves” vs “have-nots”. Specifically certain in-charges treated themselves to delicious delicacies while the general workers were the have-nots, deprived of food during DMS. They were forced to find food for themselves.”

Namaskar,
The food situation for general Wts at DMS was unacceptable; here is further reporting about what transpired. First I wish to also add that, I found the comparison of SS and other top Dadas with the demon king to be totally appropriate.

FOOD NOT PROVIDED TO GENERAL WTS AT DMS

At the May 2012 DMS in Ananda Nagar, SS Delhi Dada Amaleshananda collected 200 rupees from all workers for their food in Ananda Nagar during their 7-day stay. For the first two days and the last two days, sub-standard food was provided for workers. But during the middle three days when the actual DMS was going on, SS Dada closed down the kitchen entirely. That meant there was no food for general workers.

All those field workers then had no access to food during DMS.

Workers were left to wander around looking to feed themselves; plus, there was a serious water shortage. It was an awful condition; and yet our wts had paid for 7 days worth of food. But SS Dada did not arrange for even a single mouthful of food to be served during the 3 middle days of their DMS stay. So our wt workers were left to scrounge around for food. And during the extreme summer heat, water was scarce. All in all, it was a very uncomfortable and inhumane way to treat our workers.

BIG DADAS HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE CHEF & SPECIAL SELECTIONS

Yet, side by side, for top Dadas, SS Delhi Amaleshananda arranged a special chef and made sure that high-quality food was served throughout the entire DMS. That means those bosses and big dadas received special, royal treatment: Tasty, sumptuous food for each and every meal prepared for them by a qualified and trained chef. Plus they had boxes and boxes of purified, bottled water during this summer DMS where temperatures reached high levels.

So those big dadas had top-grade provisions for food and drink, while the mass of wt workers were not given any food during the middle three days of their DMS stay – and sub-standard food the other days.

ALL MONEY DIVERTED SOMEWHERE ELSE

This led to a lot of anxiety and frustration amongst the general wts. Their bosses had collected money from them, yet during the 3 days of DMS those same bosses spent that money on fancy meals for themselves, while general workers were deprived even basic food. The whole situation was shameful.

SS collected money from margiis, and non-margiis to feed wts at DMS. Various schools, and BPs also generously donated for the cause, yet that money was funneled somewhere else. People consciously donated money specifically for worker meals during their DMS stay, yet that money was used by big dadas in a separate manner.

Such is the selfish and greedy quality of those top workers. Again, this entire situation of extreme inequality was put into motion by SS Dada and his seniors at the recent summer DMS in Ananda Nagar.

Namaskar,
Mahitosh

PRABHAT SAMGIITA

“Toma’re cineo cena’ da’y…” – P.S. 1056

Purport:

Baba, even after seeing You, to truly recognize You is very difficult. Just when I think that I have understood You, and feel that on the strength of my intellect I understand everything, You make me realise my foolishness by secretly giving a blow to my ego. Baba, when I think that I can get anything by purchasing it with my wealth, then by showing me amu’ly ma’ni [1] You make me understand my extreme poverty. Baba, You can only be recognised when You desire; in that situation You will shower Your grace. Only then can anyone realise You…

END NOTES FOR PRABHAT SAMGIITA #1056:

[1] Amu’ly Man’i = Literally meaning priceless jewels, but the true meaning is that supreme spiritual wealth which can’t be purchased with worldly riches.

Note: In this above Prabhat Samgiita Baba is teaching us that not everything can be understood with the intellect; the human intellect has its inherent limitation. Second, material wealth also has its inherent limitation. With the strength of worldly wealth one cannot do everything. One cannot fulfill all the longings nor all the desires. Money is not the be-all and end-all of life. So people should be alert.

== CHILD TRAFFICKING ==

Namaskar,
As Ananda Margiis, we should be critically aware about harmful activities going on around the world. First and foremost, our duty is to save the children. It is the collective responsibility of society to watch for the welfare of children. If our youths are exploited, we are all to be held accountable.

With the extreme growth of capitalism, exploitation is multiplying.

At present, in the US, 100,000 children are forced into prostitution. The condition in so-called 3rd world countries is far worse. Criminals are kidnapping young girls from poor countries and selling them in rich countries.

Here is how it works: First such kidnappers gain the trust and friendship of these girls, and then befool those girls into thinking that they will get a good job and have a bright future. Thus, girls are manipulated and deceived into thinking that their lives hold great promise. Little do they suspect the vileness that actually awaits them. The situation is grave and tragic and needs our intervention.

Most shocking is that teenage girls from our children’s homes in India are also missing – and, some say, caught up in this mess.

Now please read this below article that details this horrible scene of child / teenage prostitution.

Namaskar,
Sudanshu Deva

FBI: Nationwide child prostitution sweep leads to
104 arrests, 79 children rescued
By Carol Cratty, CNN
Washington (CNN) — During a three-day law enforcement sweep targeting the problem of teenage prostitution, officers rescued 79 children and arrested 104 alleged pimps, the FBI announced Monday.
Operation Cross Country 6 took place from Friday though Sunday with more than 2,500 state, local and federal officers working in 57 cities.

FBI Acting Executive Assistant Director Kevin Perkins said the children law enforcement freed from their handlers ranged from 13 to 17 years old with one girl saying she had gotten involved in prostitution when she was 11.
“Many times the children that are taken in in these types of criminal activities are children that are disaffected, they are from broken homes, they may be on the street themselves — they are really looking for a meal, they are looking for shelter, they are looking for someone to take care of them, and that’s really the first approach that’s made,” said Perkins.
“Once the child has been taken out of harm’s way, then really the story just begins at that point,” said Perkins. “That’s where the real work starts, where we have to call upon the community, various social welfare agencies, our own office of victim assistance has to work with each child on an individual basis to see what their requirements are.
“This is a very difficult task. These children are very damaged — very harmed, and they need a great deal of help — it’s really taxing the social welfare agencies and it’s something that, going forward, we need to pay particular attention to.”
Even though the FBI says 79 children were rescued, officials said there’s no guarantee those minors won’t be lured back into prostitution.
“A lot of these kids feel like they are in love, and therefore many of them will go back, so it’s not only important that they get help, but they need a specialized kind of help,” said Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
According to Perkins, the people exploiting children in this manner are engaged in organized crime and have business plans and strategies. He said such criminals know their market and will move kids from state to state to service clients. The criminals use various methods including the Internet to find vulnerable kids. They also may find them at bus stations or truck stops and offer them help as a first step to winning their confidence.
Operation Cross Country is part of the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative which was started in 2003. With 47 task forces and working groups, the FBI says more than 2,200 children have been pulled off the streets along with more than 1,000 convictions of people exploiting kids. According to the FBI, many of the convictions have resulted in long prison sentences, including eight life terms.
Despite those figures, the FBI and child advocates said child prostitution continues to be a serious problem and they called on the public to realize it can happen in any town and neighborhood.
Allen said the best estimate is that at least 100,000 American kids get lured into prostitution every year.
