== RE: WIDESPREAD NEPOTISM & THEFT IN WT CADRE ==

~ PART 5 ~

(Note: This is the 5th letter in this series; links to the prior 4 letters have been appended below. – Eds)

Namaskar,
Here are some reflections on this topic. First however let us remind ourselves of Baba’s mandate for wholetime workers:

“No relationship should exist with worldly family.” (32 Rules for Avadhutas / Avadhutikas, point #9)

“It is quite evident that Didi Ananda Giita is in the wrong by [keeping relations with and financially supporting her laokik father] and going against the code of discipline. Didiji is not adhering to her Wt dharma. That is bad enough, but the worst part is that if others follow her lead, then what will be left of our WT cadre. It will be in shambles. Every conduct rule will be violated.”

So two things are inherently wrong here. Respected Didi Ananda Giita is contravening Baba’s rules, mandates, and conduct rules by emotionally and financially supporting her laokik family. Baba has declared that no Wt should be in contact with the worldly family – not for any reason. So Didiji is clearly in violation of this rule. In addition, by her poor example, others are also breaking these same rules. Didiji is turning her own weakness and wrongful dealing into a systemic problem amongst our Wt cadre. This is the extreme gravity of the situation.

Even then, the problem does not stop there.

JUST HYPOCRISY:

THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION

When margiis point out – now or in the past – to Ananda Giita: “Why are you so attached with your laokik father. This is having a very harmful, domino effect on the organisation.”

Then always Didi Ananda Giita has her set reply: “I am not involved in all this – some other Didis are caring for my father – what can I do.”

In this way, she always tries to deflect the spotlight away from herself.

I ASK YOU THE READER

Now, however, I ask you the reader, do you think junior didis would have cared for him if he was not the laokik father of a very powerful group leader didi? There are countless people in his situation with poor health or even worse, yet those junior didis selected and cared for Bhalla ji, not anyone else. So I ask again, do you think junior didis or subordinates of Ananda Giita would have cared for him if he was not the laokik father of a very powerful group leader didi?

SONIA GANDHI EXAMPLE:

UNABASHED NEPOTISM

As you may know, there is very high security arrangement at the airports nowadays. Everybody is frisked and checked thoroughly. In Delhi (India), there are around 30 people who are allowed to bypass the check. On this list are the names of Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Wadher. Yet the names of so many very higher officials are not on this list. What is the reason that Priyanka Gandhi and Robert Wadher are allowed to pass through freely? The only reason is that Priyanka and Robert are the daughter and son-in-law of the powerful Sonia Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi states her wish, and then her staff and related agencies carry out the order.

So this is just nepotism. The kith and kin of those in power gain special privileges. That is the way it works. When Gadaffi was alive and leading Libya, then he granted huge “perks” to his close family members. That is the way nepotism works. Those at the helm give unparalleled benefits and access to those whom they favour. Such recipients are not post-holders or in-charges, just they have personal relations with the leader. And for that reason they are gifted countless boons.

ANANDA GIITA DOING THE SAME

Didi Ananda Giita falls in this same category. She is granting special rights and privileges to her laokik father, just because she is partial to him. She favours him.

It is quite evident that whatever arrangement has been done for Giita Didi’s father, it is all done with the clear instruction of Ananda Giita Didi. The workers and didis of her group would not dare to neglect her instruction; rather to score more “points” and secure a special place in the politics of the organisation, they would take it more seriously to please this “most senior” didi.

Didi Ananda Giita knows in her heart that what she is doing is wrong, but she is trying to hide her hypocrisy. She is attached with her laokik father and wants him nearby her – always. Otherwise, why did she never oppose those didis who were helping her laokik father? Why didn’t Ananda Giita tell those junior workers that this is against the avadhutika conduct rules.

If in response to this letter, Didi Ananda Giita or any of her agents try to defend her dealing or minimise it, then I will have no option but to write many more inner details about this entire affair.

THE NEED TO WRITE

I write this with the interests of our respected Ananda Giita Didi, our WWD and our Ananda Marga at heart. By solving such problems she and her team can best grow spiritually – and in all the ways. For this reason I have raised this matter. And ultimately I wish to see Ananda Giita Didi and her supporters grow in a beautiful manner.

Namaskar,
at lotus feet
Nirmala Devii

Note 1: THE FOCUS IS ON DIDI ANANDA GIITA

With respect to this entire issue of Didi keeping relations with her laokik father, the spotlight is on Didi Ananda Giita. She is the one who is a “senior” Wt and responsible for following certain rules. And she is the one who compromised with and broke her Wt oaths.

Even a layman can understand that Ananda Giita Didi provided or arranged care for her laokik father, and even involved personally in those affairs. She was doing everything – directly or indirectly – by instructing junior Didis about her laokik father’s food, medicine, housing, and comfort etc, or involving personally.

Even an ordinary person can evaluate the situation and understand very clearly that Didi Ananda Giita was very deeply involved in the affiars of her laokik father – all of which is against Baba’s order.

“No relation should exist with worldly family.” (32 Rules for Avadhutikas, pt #9)

Certainly I agree that care must be taken for all elderly people, but not at the expense of one’s acarya vows.

A “senior” wt worker is supposed to be a leader, an emblem of ideology, and an example to all junior workers. Becoming WT means leaving the small unit family (laokik) for the big universal family. In Ananda Marga a wt is supposed to follow the rules where it is clearly mentioned that one should not have connection with their laokik family. Even someone is not following this rule, we certainly expect “senior” Wts to follow the rule. We must raise awareness and ultimately oppose, if need be, to all who break this rule, without giving preference to those with whom we have good relation.

*********************************************
Cuckoo Utilises Its Enemy

Baba says, “It is said that there is a particular species of the cuckoo bird that is incapable of nesting and raising its own offspring. So to protect and save her babies, the mother cukoo gently places her own eggs in the crow’s nest, even though the crow is her dreaded enemy. But since the eggs of both the birds looks the same, the crow carefully cares for those cuckoo eggs which were placed in her nest– thinking them to be her own. At the time of birth, the newborn birds of both species are black; so seeing the baby cuckoos, the mother crow does not initially realise that the baby cuckoos are not her own offspring. It is only when the baby birds become a little bigger and start to call out and cry, that the crow realises those are not her babies. Then and there the mother crow becomes very angry, suddenly understanding that it has gotten duped. But because of having given long-term care and developed sincere love for the baby cuckoo, the mother crow gives up the idea of attacking and killing the cuckoo. And instead the mother crow raises the baby cuckoo as one of her own.” (Shabda Cayanika – 10)

1. Just like the cuckoo utilises even its worst enemy, then we too should use our enemies in an intelligent way. Baba utilised communist enemies to propagate Ananda Marga ideals. If such communists had not created such a negative agenda and if such communists had not spread so much bad news about Ananda Marga, then the general populace would not have become so attracted to read about Ananda Marga. People are not enticed by good news, but certainly they want to know about the dark aspects and controversial topics. By this way Ananda Marga grew a lot. If the communists had not created so much opposition, Ananda Marga would not have become so popular in such a short period.

2. The crow adopted the cuckoo as its own because it had spent so much time nurturing that baby cuckoo. Here the point is that through interaction all kinds of beings can become close to one another. Baba has given collective social functions for this very purpose. By spending time with one another, people of diverse backgrounds forget their differences and embrace each other as their own.
