The Bhagavad gita talks about cultivating detached attachment but today we see people in power faithfully cultivating it with a slight difference like reverse osmosis. The recent decision taken by the Lordly President at the urgently called working committee meeting of BCCI, though expected, has come as a jolt not only to the tv anchors who competed to be the first to announce the news of his resignation but to all cricket lovers and people with a conscience as well.
It also proves people in power, be it politicians or any Tom, Dick and Harry could go to abysmal lengths to cling to their seat even if it becomes too hot for them and dictate literally from their Hot Seat. In this situation the spectators’ focus has shifted from the corrupt cricketers accused of match fixing to the Head of BCCI who has managed to fix all its members making them voiceless and helpless. Certainly they too seemed to have taken it lying down at the cost of their prestige (assuming they had it), not to speak of their own selfish interest, their past record and most importantly with their eyes firmly fixed on elections to be held in September. Is it not a case of Attached Detachment?
