Even the great Guru has been divided। The Gurpurab was fragmented. The respective groups held separate functions including the Langar and the Shoba Yatra. The public money collected for the purpose by both the groups was spent mindlessly. The sense of one-up was prevailing which tended to increase heat and acrimony. I spoke at one of the functions and pleaded for unity in the larger interest of the society. But it seemed that the line of divide was getting deeper and bigger. The false ego and money power was getting stronger. The people and the society is bound to suffer and the struggle for empowerment of the dalit masses will get weak in the prevailing situation. The movement and mission of the Guru has been compromised by the so called followers themselves. The image of Bootan Mandi has been tarnished.May Guru Ravidass provide and grant us sense and sanity.
हर शाख पे उल्लू बैठें हैं अंजामें गुलिस्तान क्या होगा
